About Me

Hi, I'm the mother of two wonderful kids. I work full time and do crafting as a hobby/stress reliever. I like making greeting cards and do a lot of origami. The main materials I work with are paper, paper and more paper. Did I mention I love paper?

Favorite Crafts

Card Making, Origami, I've just discovered the world of ATC's, Altered Art, Collages, Paper Mosaics and would like to do more with this. I would love to receive little bits and pieces, charms, ephemera, things I can use on my new found interests. I have an ETSY store under the name of shutupandfold.

I've just finished my first Dotee doll and matchbox So there's another craft/addiction to add to my list.

UPDATE; I've become very addicted to Dotees!!!

Favorite Music

I like all types of music, rock, country, blues (not really a specific type but a song that stays in my head) Some of my favorites songs are by Carley Simon, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Cass Elliot. I also like the Eagles, Beach Boys, Fleetwood Mac, Beatles, music from the 60's and 70's (I'm old!). Joss Stone, K.T. Tunstall and Amy Winehouse are a few more favorites.

Favorite Books

A bit of everything. Biographies, Poetry Collections, Historical Fiction, How To Craft Books - some of my favorites (I'm reading now) are Peony In Love, Girl with the Pearl Earring, Empress Orchid. The Other Boleyn Girl. I like doing Puzzles, Mazes, Sudoku, Logic Puzzles. Reading Comics - Peanuts! - Calvin and Hobbes - For Better Or Worse. Trivia and Useless Information (Could come in handy someday, You never know!)

Favorite Movies

I like old Movies, Mysteries, Dramas, Romantic Comedies, The Godfather I and II, Pretty Woman, The Sound of Music, Kids movies: Finding Nemo, Beauty and the Beast, Cars, A lot of Disney!!! and Pixar

Favorite Television

Reality TV - Top Chef, Project Runway, Top Model. Comedies and Dramas - ER, Law & Order SVU, Brothers and Sisters. The Food Network, HGTV, Discovery, TLC, Bravo, CNN, I Love Lucy and all those old reruns of the past.

Things I'd like To Get

Charms, Beads, Buttons, Cabs, Brads, Ribbons, Fibers, Tiny Little Things, Etc.

Exotic Papers - doesn't have to be from another country (would be nice) but maybe from another time or place or an interesting or different design or with a local flair.

Scrapbooking Supplies

I wouldn't like to receive anything perishable (candies), personal use (lip balm, lotions) candles, incense, potpurri (I live in a wooden house).

Sending & Rating

I always try to send my swaps out on time or early (International - usually takes about 2 weeks??, U.S - within a week?). So please feel free to contact me if you do not receive your swap within a reasonable amount of time. I promise to rate!!! Again please feel free to contact me.
