About Me

Hi everyone, I'm in my early 40s, a housewife, and mom to three girls. Lately, I've been collecting more than crafting, but crafts I sometimes work on are ATCs, deco books, visual journals, altered matchboxes, stamp carving, some knitting, crocheting, and sewing.

Likes

  • Magical creatures: Faeries, gnomes, goblins, elves, etc.
  • Watery beauties: Mermaids, selkies, nymphs...
  • Fairy Tales esp. Red Riding Hood, Rumpelstiltskin, and Snow White & Rose Red
  • Classic storybooks esp. Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Robin Hood, and One Thousand and One Arabian Nights
  • Nature: mushrooms, moss, ferns, dark forests, birch trees (my fav. tree), toadstools, clover, and moths
  • Dark and creepy. I love Krampus, unusual oddities, spider webs, skeletons, Japanese obake, and Romanticism-Gothic periods.
  • Classic American horror films (Dracula, Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon, etc.)
  • Moon phases
  • 1950s atomic stars
  • Anything cute and kitschy (ex. 1950s, mid-century, and tiki style)
  • Pin Up girls
  • Vintage and antique items
  • Holiday decorations
  • I collect Christmas ornaments
  • Anything tiny and miniature
  • Winter accessories (warm socks, gloves, scarves, beanies, etc. I use them!)
  • Candles
  • Bath items
  • Stickers and washi tape
  • Glitter
  • Embroidery floss - all colors
  • Wool for needle felting - all colors
  • Gel pens - all colors
  • Any colored inks or watercolor paint
  • Kawaii - Japanese brands (esp anything with ghost/monsters, quirky objects, and food with faces). I love the older designs from the late 90s to early 2000s the best. I also like some Korean kawaii, like Lovely White and Jetoy Cat.
  • My favorite art styles: Pre-Raphaelite, and Pop Surrealism
  • My favorite season is winter.
  • My favorite colors are light blues and mint/pale greens
  • I love cats, foxes, and deer (after those, would be lambs and rabbits)
  • Tea

  • dark and drab colors
  • key chains
  • pin back buttons/badges

  • temporary tattoos
  • Disney, cartoon characters, famous movies, celebrities
  • Images of cute butterflies, hearts, and teddy bears
  • patriotic items
  • notebooks/journals
  • monkeys
  • piggies
