About Me

INTERESTED IN GELLI SWAPS -- if you want to do a private swap using gelli plate printing - let me know! My latest obsession.

Enjoying my new gelli plate, collage art, sewing, making handmade papers, mosaics, quilts and now these Artistamps -- excited to be part of Swap Bot!

Last year, I started a program to teach people how to make Autism Weighted Blankets (helps cope with sensory processing challenges). I created a step-by-step manual for those who want to help sew and find families in the area who have children with Autism, Asperger's, etc. to give them a lap quilt for FREE. I want to make their day a little brighter! Always happy to receive cotton fabric for the quilts and fleece (we use inside the blankets and surround the weights).

I'm also learning to play the blues harmonica. Would love any advice if you play!

ENJOY: mixed media collage, layered mail art, handmade envies, sewing for charities, mosaic design, jewelry making, ATC's, photography, travel, quilting & vintage ephemera hunting! New "love/trend" is funky embellishments and vintage Halloween & school days.)

FAVORITES: vintage camping or tennis cutouts/postcards/images; handmade paper, vintage beach photos, ocean theme in general, illustrators (Charley Harper/Brian Wildsmith), gypsy, fortune tellers, wildlife (squirrels, possums, mammoths, foxes, peacocks, any raptors, alpacas), geeky stuff, mythology, nautical, dragons, Klimt, ferris wheels, science stuff, postcards, anything boho chic, art deco or nouveau, artistic photography, steampunk, Kawaii, critters, creative journaling supplies, vintage travel, any religious icons, pirates, nautilus/shells, fossil images, cultural themes (Native American, African, Celtic, Hispanic - Day of the Dead, Cinco de Mayo), etc. Vintage French, Asian or Russian advertisements/labels. LOVE PAPER NAPKINS to use in collage!

camping Love fruity lotions - not floral. A big fan of gum, and enjoy music -- except Country. We have two adorable guinea pigs! Love Etsy, digital scrapbooking items, bold colors, origami papers, calligraphy pens. Custom address labels -- YES please.

My real name is Genevieve, pronounced "John-v-ev", it is French and usually mispronounced, so my hubby thought up "Johny". We have four kids...ranging from 13 to 33 and our first grand baby -- who is 2 1/2.

NO INTEREST IN: floral, disney, dogs/cats, reward stickers.

Favorite Television

PSYCH - Total Favorite Show....also, Fringe; Castle; 24; Outlander; Dr. Who; Torchwood; Robin Hood; Once Upon A Time; Downton Abbey; History Channel; old war movies; romantic comedies. Most anything on BBC.

Influences & Interests

TRAVEL: I've lived in Texas, England & Africa; have traveled throughout the world and so I love anything travel related. My scrapbooks are full of ephemera I can find - old postcards, magazine covers, ticket stubs...I'm a sucker for "old school" stuff. Travel favs so far: Italy, Australia, Hungary, Ireland, Czech Republic, Greece, New Zealand, Austria, Venezuela, Switzerland, France, Poland, Ireland, Morocco, USVI, and Fiji....and a few others.

INFLUENCES: I am into science. I studied Physics & Geology & loved Chemistry too. Astronomy, Archaeology, and Cultural Anthropology are always top on my list. I find that learning about natural animal habitats and incorporating green design (recycle/reuse) is on the top of my "to do" list for the new year. I enjoy cooking - especially breads or interesting cuisine...Thai, Greek, Moroccan, Cuban. I am a Christian and that is important in my life.

POSTCARD INTERESTS: Guinea pigs, totem poles, pirates, mermaids, beavers, giraffes, petroglyphs, ferris wheels, World War - German historical, art deco, steampunk, native american art, Charley Harper, Gustav Klimt, Paris, any native wildlife, Eastern European Religious Icons, kaleidoscope scenes, ocean animals, and Egyptian artifacts/art...and anything listed above in the "favorites" section.
