About Me

I joined this site because I love seeing other people's artwork. I love seeing how people can take the same thing and come to wildly different conclusions. My favorite crafty styles are vintage type things, but I love artwork inspired by a variety of styles: punk/street/body art, classical painting styles, Asian and Indian artwork, gothic art...pretty much anything with an interesting design will catch my eye. I am always really drawn to images with really strong contrast lighting as well. I go through phases with color. I am currently moving from turquoise to purple and mustard-y yellow. Although I think that any color (even pink, of which I am not a big fan) can look good in the right project or combination of colors. I'm obsessed with plaid, and am currently having a fling with argyle.

Although I have preferences, I don't want to limit anyone in their artistic visions. Please do not go through and change something that you've created based on what I've written!

Lastly, I was inspired to start a blog/etsy store based on a swap from here. They're still pretty new, but I figure that other swappers might be interested in them. The links are above :)

Favorite Books

The Giver, Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk, Harry Potter and...., The Lorax, Watchmen, Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris, Much Ado About Nothing, The Great Gatsby.

Favorite Movies

Empire Records, Sabrina (the original one with Audrey Hepburn), Moulin Rouge, Forgetting Sarah Marshall (I heart Kristen Bell), Goonies, Blues Brothers, Animal House, Labryrinth, Garden State, Batman (the one with Adam West).

Favorite Television

Buffy, Firefly, Scrubs, How I Met Your Mother, Veronica Mars, Futurama.

Favorite Crafts

Photography, acrylic painting, collage, drawing, puppet making.

Favorite Music

I can listen to just about anything. My tastes change quite often, and range from Elvis to Reel Big Fish, Glenn Miller to Rancid, George Thorogood to Brand New. I do admit to indulging in some really bad pop music when it makes me want to dance, kind of like Lady GaGa and Ke$ha currently, but I tend to stay away from most of the stuff put out on pop stations.

Comment: I wish there were more hearts to give. Thank you SO much for a beautiful journal. You must have spent so much time just finding quotes that related to things on my profile, and then to present them in such a wonderful way. I really appreciate all the love and effort you put in and will always treasure this delightful object. Thank you!

Comment: Thanks, your squash book is fascinating since I've never seen a squash book before -- I'm almost as fascinated by the way you made the book as by the trips although I love trips to England.

Kristin- I received the PC for Babel Fish lyrics- That was so sweet of you to angel the swap. "You will obtain to the club in my cab of taxi" ;-)

I'm going to have to see how Tupac 'hit 'em up' translates in Dutch to English ;-) I LOVE the Barney parody version

Thank you again.

Hi Kristin. I just go you as a partner in a swap. I had a band director in high school who's daughter had your exact name. Just curious if you could be her...lol
