About Me

I am an neuro/medical/trauma ICU registered nurse. I have 5 dogs (2 beagle, 1 basset hound, 1 short haired border collie, and a shepard lab mix). I have been married to my wonderful wife for 14 years. I love the Philadelphia Eagles, Arizona Cardinals and the Arizona Diamondbacks but love sports in general. I love to travel and hope to make it to Ireland, Greece and Denmark someday. I am from New Jersey, but my favorite US city is Portland (Oregon not Maine). I recently traveled to Rome, Venice, Prague and Paris and it was absolutely amazing. I can't believe I waited so long to travel outside the U.S. My favorite animal is the hippo, but love pretty much all animals. Although I don't have any I am obsessed with tattoos, but do have quite a few body piercings (mostly in my ears).

Favorite Music

Outkast, Temptations, Mary J. Blige, Eddie Vedder, Live, The Doors, Common, Nora Jones, Al Green, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Heart, Alicia Keys, Queen

Favorite Movies

Pulp Fiction, The Shawshank Redemption, Dirty Dancing, The Italian Job, S.W.A.T, Batman The Dark Knight Rises, Empire Records, Coming to America, Lilo & Stitch

Favorite Crafts

Mixed media art journal, Greeting Cards, Stamping and Coloring, Flip books, Memory Dex cards, ATC, Origami

Favorite Television

Law & Order SVU, Chicago Fire/PD/Med, Bull, The Blacklist, Married at First Sight, The Voice, Ink Master, Orange is the New Black, Shameless, Lip Sync Battle, Wicked Tuna, The Good Doctor, The Masked Singer

Likes/Dislikes

Likes:

I am pretty easy to please, as long as effort is put forth. I love the color green in all shades. I love music of all kind but especially R&B especially old school Motown. I enjoy the rain and gloomy days (not many here in Phoenix). My favorite holiday is Halloween and I love everything sugar skull, day of the dead and Frida Khalo. I like coffee and tea (but coffee much more). My favorites are bold patterns like argyle and paisley, but do also like polka dots and stripes.

Dislikes:

I really do not like bugs or frogs even the images of. I especially do not like the Tim Holtz bird images.I detest lateness or flaking. I have had this happen far too many times on other sites. Over-embellished items (give it room to breathe). And the over use of glitter. I like using glitter paper, but if it is falling off and getting everywhere I would rather just avoid the mess it makes.

Wishlist

Stencil pal from Thermoweb

Decofoil

Alphabet dies

Simon Says Stamp metallic envelopes

The Greeting Farm-(magical kit, hairoscope, birthday wishes die, thank you die)

Tim Holtz-distressing tool, Metalliac paper

Doodlebug enamel shapes

Comment: Melina, the flipbook that you made is absolutely fantastic! I loved the size and the colors and patterns you used. I've studied it over several times, but your folding technique escapes me and I'm amazed at how sharp your pages are! It was such fun going through it to find all the little treasures that you had tucked into the pockets and I will enjoy using them in future projects. Thank you so much for the time and creative energy you put into this swap! Happy crafting!!!
Response: So glad you enjoyed it. I had a lot of fun making it. I look forward to swapping again in the future.

Comment: Oh, well done. It’s like you reached into my secret crafting heart and pulled out all of the goodies that I love and stuffed them into this exquisite little envelope flip. And your funky paper clip stash must be AMAZEBALLS. Does your partner craft too, or is it just you in the house that collects amazing things? Expect a reply thank you soon(ish)! β€οΈπŸ˜β€οΈπŸ’πŸ˜β€οΈ
Response: I am so glad you got it and liked it. I had a lot of fun making it. My collection of paper clips is small but fun. I have a large collection of post-it notes. My wife is not crafty at all. She is taking up welding as a hobby. My brother is teaching her as that is his trade. I have always been fascinated by statiinary. I look forward to swapping again soon.

Hi there! I looked you up during our last swap and I loved your profile, so I wanted to invite you to join my first hosted swap. It's called: 3-person PC Collaboration #1- Theme: Anything Goes. Would love to have your art skills on deck!

Thank you so much for my RAK! Both MD cards are beautiful. I hope you had a great holiday season.

naturenerd3 on Oct 25, 2018:

Did you send me a RAK? LOL. I got one without a user name attached so I'm not sure but I think it was you. If I am correct thank you so much for the dex cards. It was a complete surprise!

Hi Melina,

I wrote a resounding and grateful comment when I received my beautiful flipbook...evidently I didn't hit leave comment. So I will write this once more. I loved my beautiful flipbook and the goodies you made for me. They're awesome and so are you... an angel is what you are. Thank you a 100 times. Many hearts, stars, and unicorns. β™₯️🌹
