About Me

I am an accountant by day and crafter on my own time (every other minute not sleeping!) I enjoy all kinds of crafts, but especially paper crafts. I prefer classical styles and colors, but have a soft spot for science fiction and purple. I don't really like Kawaii, or Disney, or anything pink, or with too-big eyes.

I love softer colors, vintage images and lacy prints, but really, I LOVE ANYTHING HANDMADE!! Really! Take a chance and make me something completely from scratch! I won't laugh, or rate you down, I promise. And I keep all handmade cards, so you can know they're going to a good home.

Favorite Books

I recently started using Kindle Unlimited and BOY, does my neck hurt from reading too much! I read almost anything with not-too-much violence or sex. I love mysteries and science fiction. Recently I've enjoyed: Laurie R. King, Tyler Dilts, Hugh Howey, George Takei

Favorite Crafts

I recently spent so many consecutive hours knitting that I developed De Quervain's tenosynovitis, so knitting is off the table for a while. I sew, embroider, paint, dye, stencil, crochet , draw, cut, fold on all manner of paper, fabric, plastic, wood and glass. I've made clothes, quilts, Amigorumi, handmade paper, journals, repurposed clothing, handbags and satchels; you name it, I've probably done it.

I'm enjoying ATCs because of the small size and I love the swaps because they usually limit the subject matter. Nothing more daunting than a huge, white, blank canvas. Except perhaps a blank page!

Favorite Television

Firefly/Serenity-can you believe Fox killed Wash??? I will never get over that moment (technically a movie, I suppose)

Also, Enterprise, Once Upon A Time, Eureka, Dr. Who, Merlin, Elementary, Blue Bloods, Sherlock...

Favorite Music

I will listen to any genre, as long as it is well done. My son has even got me to listen to some screamo!

Favorites include: Paul Simon, Sara Groves, Harry Connick Jr, Fernando Ortega, Mozart, Rosemary Clooney, almost any Old Time Gospel, Chet Baker, Mercy Me, Lionel Hampton, Natalie Merchant, Diana Krall, Crash Test Dummies, Selah, Placido Domingo; I really could go on for pages.

I have a music partner and we sing old time gospel music together and perform nearby. She has played mountain dulcimer for 20 years and I can hardly sing without her any more!!

Favorite Movies

I'll try anything, but it gets stopped the minute it gets too violent, or too sexual or badly conceived or poorly written or... I prefer science fiction along the lines of Star Gate or Star Wars (the jury is still out on Lucas-we'll see if VII redeems V and VI)

Iron Man, Bringing Up Baby, The Philadelphia Story, West Side Story, The Fifth Element, Blade Runner, It's a Wonderful Life, On The Beach, The Secret Life of Walter Middy, The Lion King, It Happened One Night, I Was a Male War Bride, Carmen

Comment: I feel it's only fair at this point to rate a 1 on this swap. You were on Swap-Bot on 11/15/15 [the day of the cyber swap], but never showed up. I sent you a PM on 11/19/15, because it showed that you'd been on the site that day, too. That message is still listing as unread, despite the fact that you were also on the site on 11/22/15 and 11/30/15. On 11/30/15, the coordinator told me that she also PMed you. I hate rating a 1, and would be happy to work out some sort of arrangement to be able to re-rate, but the lack of communication is forcing my hand on this.

Comment: Sent late, but with responsible correspondence :-) I haven't opened anything yet, because I'm having huge problems doing NaNo this year and I need the rewards for higher word counts. So I'm renumbering/shifting. Hoping to open the first one at 25k... today if possible? Meep? Thank you in advance for the items! EDIT 12/26/15: I finally opened all the items. You chose such amazing things for me. Thank you SO much for all of it, especially the profile-specific fandomy ones! (And I do love Star Wars, no worries!) I especially love the library kit, but it's tough to pick a favorite item. Thank you!

Comment: It was neat reading about your project; I like that you turned it into a letter instead of just a list. I wish your character many hot showers :-) I really love the world you described and hope that you are having fun writing in that world. Thank you for the bookmark!

Comment: This is such a wonderful postcard. My favorite part is the cat. I've tried to draw them but without much luck so far. I'll keep trying though!
Response: I don't know when I lost my fear of drawing/painting, but I can assure you that you can too! Just give it a try and I bet you'll be surprised at how much you enjoy it after the first few things!

Comment: Thanks for the great apron, what a cute idea, I love it!!!!
Response: I got that from a book. Or magazine, or... well, it wasn't my idea anyway! But I'm glad you like it. I like the idea of using a loved-one's shirts in a new way.
