About Me

Just back from Russia, Baltics, Iceland & Norway - great summer getaway. Ready for swappin'....

Enjoying acrylic pours, gelli plate, collage art, sewing, making handmade papers, mosaics, quilts and now these Artistamps!

I started an outreach program in the Houston area, 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 love doing travel photography - many of my photos are used for art backgrounds -- check out my ETSY store "myparismoon". I was also fortunate that some of my sports photos have been picked up by ESPN. I love capturing moments in time!

Happy Birthday!

DaisyNY on Jul 22, 2018:

Apparently you had left a rating for me on July 5th - but I couldn't see it before for some reason. Either Swap-bot is glitchy or I am (or some combination).

Thank you!

DaisyNY on Jul 11, 2018:

I left you a message which is unread - do you need a resend of Scrap Paper Animals PC? It should have reached you by now.

CurlyTea on Sep 1, 2017:

A bit belated, but Happy Birthday!
