About Me

I'm back on a limited basis - I'm in the midst of a divorce and still learning the ropes of being a full-time single mom. As part of that, I'm having trouble making creative time a priority, so figure the due dates will make me make the time to create!

If you haven't received a swap from me, please let me know! I'm usually pretty quick about sending them, so they shouldn't be late. Also if you're unhappy with what I've sent, please let me know! I'd like to improve what I make, so am open to constructive criticism.

A note on my id - the first character is an L, not an upper case i as some have suspected.

I'm an avid crafter and mom of 3 boys - 10 year-old twins and an 8 year-old. I work full-time as a software developer. Between kids and work, I have to make crafting fit where i can. I'm 'outdoorsy' and, thankfully, the boys all are too, so free time is often spent on the go.

Extras

Extras aren't necessary. If you have something that screams my name, great! But don't worry about adding extras just because. I'm most interested in your artwork you're sharing with me!

I've also pretty much stopped sending extras. Organizing all the 'stuff'' and keeping track of what bits I'd sent to whom was driving me crazy and taking the fun out of swapping. If you swap for the extras, I apologize! If you'd like to receive extras - especially if they're the inspiration for your artwork, just let me know! I'm happy to send extras if you promise not to growl about duplicates!

Favorite Crafts

I love all kinds of crafts, but am most drawn to fabric and paper crafts. I've been a crafter since I was a kid (from a family of crafters). Right now, I don't have time for quilting so am nursing my need to craft with ATC's (thanks to Swap-bot!). I'm finding I really prefer to draw/paint my ATCs and am having a ball making them!

For most crafts, I'm not into designer names. I'm the same way with clothing. Being trendy isn't important to me - I go more on what I like. I tend to shop thrift stores and garage sales.

Favorite Media

Television: Right now, if the tv is on, it's for the kids. In my downtime, the tv is off and I'm usually doing some type of craft. Pre-kids, I liked shows like Emergency Vets, Friends, The First 48, and CSI.

Music: I've become an avid music consumer again - it's been a great source of pleasure during the split and start of the divorce. I can immerse myself with headphones and take a mini-break from life - mostly popular stuff on the radio - there seems to be so much of it i like these days!

Books: I like to read all different kinds of books - kids through adults - though definitely prefer a physical book to an electronic download.

Likes/dislikes

I'm pretty eclectic... I love all colors from brights to pastels, to muted colors. I love textures in fabrics, papers, yarns. I'm a fan of animals, particularly drawn to cats, moose, herons, hawks, and otters. I also adore dragonflies and butterflies, and collect feathers, rocks (agates/fossils) and buttons (the clothing type). I collect 'trash' to craft with my kids - plastic containers, magazines, mail; and we re-use craft items once we're done with our old creations. Outside, I love to go geocaching and hunting munzees!

Dislikes? I have to avoid strong smells/perfumes, dairy, and caffeine as they're migraine triggers. This really hampers my Dr Pepper addiction!
