Favorite Crafts

SPOILER ALERT!!! If you're swapping with me don't look at my Flickr photos. I tend to post pix as swaps are completed and don't want to spoil your surprise:)

paste I love altered art of any kind especially books, tins, puzzle pieces, spoons, tins and did I mention tins? Newest passion is art dolls! My fav theme is vintage and my crafts will usually reflect that element. Would luv to learn more ideas/swaps for art/craft projects using re-cycled items or repurposing old or thrift store finds. A perfect day off for me includes trips to the used book store & thrift store for treasures for altered art. I can't sew a stitch, crochet or knit despite my mother's best efforts to teach me. Update: I can now sew a straight line with a sewing machine!!

About Me

hotflash

Married (40 yrs....child bride...lol...you do the math) with two grown children.We have two fur babies, both are rescues: a tuxedo cat named Panda and a golden retriever named Goldie...really original names, huh?

crafting Not enough hours in the day for all of the art/craft projects that I want to try! I always have several projects going on at once. Pretentious artists and swappers make me TIRED & CRANKY or maybe it's just menopause. My three major food groups: caffeine, chocolate & vodka.

ABOUT MY SWAPS: Please play nice! I WILL NOT flake, so if you don't receive a swap from me, please let me know before you rate, so I can re-send! And yes, I know everyone says that, but I really will.

I promise to rate...non-raters are kind of like flakers in my book. Didn't your momma teach you to say "thank you"?

I am somewhat selective, so that I can send a quality swap to my partner. If it's a new craft for me, I will complete the project before I sign up for the swap to make sure I'm satisfied with the results. I really appreciate a note from senders about themselves or the swap they are sending to me. I WILL read your profile and make every attempt to send you a swap that you'll enjoy.

If you join a swap that I'm hosting, my promise to you is that you won't be flaked on. I'll angel the swap for you, once you have made an attempt to contact your partner and work it out.

drama I don't do "mean girl" high school bs, if you've got a beef with me, let me know privately. We'll work it out like adults. I'm here to have fun and enjoy the creative side of swapping, not engage in public forum drama.

FOOD: Unfortunately (lol), I like everything, but please do not send food. Because of the extreme heat where I live, it would not arrive in good condition (April-November.)

LIKES: Flora & Fauna: violets, hyacinths, lilacs, pansies, bonsai trees, hummingbirds, butterflies, bees, dragonflies, ladybugs & faeries.

vargas Vintage: tasteful nude images, old postcards, funny vintage images, pin-up girl images, old lace & trims, anything shabby chic, vintage advertisements/labels, buttons.

Colors: pink, lavendar, sage green & Tiffany blue. I'm pretty much a girly-girl and yes, I do love glitter!

pc I love receiving postcards (who knew??) especially retro, vintage, Anne Taintor or handmade. dod tat I luv Frida K., anything Dia de los Muertos, milagros, anything Mary Engelbreit, Rosie the Riveter, Alphonse Mucha, Fernando Botero, Mexican calendar girls and funny pictures of nuns, small images of saints or the Virgin Mary for charms.

Tiny things like buttons, gems & ephemera to fit inside my bottlecap art are an instant hit with me.

cat DISLIKES: anime, comic books, fantasy art, Star Wars, Star Trek, goth anything, witchcraft, horror genre, anything satanic, wiccan, Harry Potter or Twilight stuff, Kawaii (sorry...Hello Kitty is cute, but I guess I just don't get the rest of it.)

Comment: You have outdone yourself! You just keep sending me these amazing swaps, and I'll keep signing up for your swaps hoping you are my partner! The queen is awesome - definitely helped inspire me with making my own. And the settings to go with her....she is standing next to her table and chair on my wine bar - quite possibly her permanent home. Love her! THANK YOU!!!!

Comment: Lu, your shabby chic picture frame assemblage is lovely! That powdery blue is so pretty. But the little gnome dome stole my heart! I'm inclined to put it on a chain and wear it because it's so cute. Closer to Christmas I'll hang it on the tree. =) Thanks much!!! xo
