Favorite Crafts

Cross stitch, embroidery, quilting, sewing - but stash building seems to be my biggest activity these days! Can you ever have enough craft supplies?

I dabble a little in paper crafts, like collages, scrap booking, and like to color and doodle. I'm looking forward to trying some ATC's and postcard making. I have a big collection of ephemera for collage making. I've just started a couple of smash books just for fun.

Colors

Lime and melon greens, turquoise, pink, bright colors, black & white prints

About Me

I love fabric, buttons, embellishments like appliqués, little crochet pieces, beads, charms, fibers, etc. Also ephemera and embroidery floss (I think I already have the world's largest collection!)

As far as themes, I like animals (owls, cats, zebras, frogs, seahorses, turtles, birds, elephants), flowers, geometrics & Quaker designs, stripes and grids, sunflowers, strawberries, and birds.

I like vintage fabrics in bold prints and bright colors.

I love tea (not wild about green or white teas). I don't drink coffee, but Mr. Lexfrog does.

About Me

I like jewelry, especially pins and necklaces. I don't wear earrings and my wrists are too skinny for bracelets!

I like postcards and vintage trading cards. I like animal themes, especially animals riding other animals, sewing themes, birds, flowers, and scenic views.

Favorite Books

I read lots of mysteries, especially cozy mysteries. I've read most cozies about needlework and quilting. I also like historical fiction.

I don't watch much TV, but my favorites are The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Restaurant Impossible, Project Runway, and Deadliest Catch.

I like dramatic and historical movies, some comedies, and like to sneak in a chick flick when Mr. Lexfrog isn't watching!

Swapping

If you do not receive a swap from me, just let me know, and I will gladly resend! Things do get lost in the mail sometimes, especially postcards.

If you give me the courtesy of contacting me before rating a 1, I will make it right.

Ellen, awesome trash to treasure atc's. Can't decide which I like more. Loved the fishy one...but, also loved the flower collage. Thanks for making this a great swap. Cheers. Whytewillow

Hey there!

I wanted to start an art journal but have NO idea where to start or what to do. So, instead of taking the journey alone, I started a group.

The threads are just FILLED with tutorials, videos and illustrations.

I will also be having a WEEKLY challenge. Whereas I will post a picture of a journal page and the members will recreate it in their OWN image.

This is this weeks image;

This isn't a swap group. It's more of a show and tell type group. By the end of the year you will have a nice, thick art journal. With all YOUR own work in it.

If this sounds like something you'd like to do, hop on over and join the group~ CLICK ME

Hope to see ya there.
