About Me

My kids are off at college and I finally have more time for my art, crafts and sewing- yay! :) I LIKE: Anything Dia de los Muertos/Sugar skulls, anything quirky and odd, odd or cute Japanese stationery, going camping (just bought a teardrop trailer!!), Edward Gorey, Mark Ryden, Adore me some LUSH products!, listening to music, playing games- both online and board games, fairies (ones with attitude- NOT the Disney kind!), gnomes, classic pin-ups (Elvgren, Page, etc.), and Miyazaki movies Favorite colors: blue, black, and jewel tones. Favorite animals: sloths, dinosaurs, slow loris, owls, monkeys, bats, hedgehogs, wombats, opossums, llamas, bush babies

DON'T LIKE: color yellow, (generally speaking, don't care for pastel colors either), religious/Christian stuff (unless it's super quirky and tacky), "country style" anything, clowns, anything cartoon or cutesy like Snoopy, Garfield, or Disney (unless it's Lilo & Stitch), and the smell of cigarette smoke!

Favorite Music

I have eclectic tastes in music and love just about anything except opera. :) Some of the stuff I like includes anything acapella, Jack Johnson, Ed Sheeran, Bonamassa, John Mayer, Lyle Lovett, AC/DC, Joe Walsh, Tom Waits, Patsy Cline, Norah Jones, Ben Harper, Spearhead, Paul Thorn, Eminem, Wailin' Jennies, acoustic guitar, piano (like George Winston, etc.), Pentatonix and anything Blues or funk(Did I mention eclectic??) :) I also love discovering new music!

Favorite Books

I love to read...I have too many favorites to count!! I do tend towards genres of fantasy/sci fi though. Some authors that pop to mind: Charlaine Harris, Christopher Moore, Carl Hiassen, Diana Gabaldon, Kim Harrison, George Martin, etc. I'm also an art/craft/sewing book junkie...especially any of the Somerset Studios magazines...my favorite is the Willow & Sage magazine! I'm amassing quite the collection! :)

Favorite Movies

Favorite movies: Wizard of Oz, Guardians of the Galaxy, Mars Attacks, Braveheart, MIB, Pirates of the Carribean series (Mmmm...Johnny Depp!) ;) Lord of the Rings, Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice, (Jeez- anything Tim Burton!), any of the Studio Ghibli movies, and The Princess Bride (Hello...My name is Inigo Montoya...) ;)

Favorite Television

Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Orange is the New Black, True Blood, Project Runway, Supernatural, Grimm (filmed here in Portland!), Golan the Insatiable, Colony, Bob's Burgers, Archer, Criminal Minds, I Zombie, Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell, Drunk History, Balls Deep

Favorite Crafts

Again...eclectic! I don't care for anything "cutsie" craft-wise, (for example cartoons, crochet angels, tole painted cows or "country" themed anything) but other than that... I have become addicted to ATC's, and I'm starting both an art journal and a bullet journal... but I do everything from sewing clothes and quilts to stamping, cardmaking, watercolors, soaps, jewelry making...you name it, I've probably at least dabbled in it! :)

Misc.

Please know I take my sign-ups seriously and will NEVER flake on a swap. If I sign up, I WILL send , and always by the deadline, so let me know if you don't get something a reasonable amount of time, it'll likely mean something has happened to it en route. Also, I always rate as soon as I get things, so if you have not gotten a rating in a reasonable amount of time, it means I have not gotten what you sent, not that I was lazy and didn't rate you. ;) As far as rating, when it comes to giving out hearts, I look for the effort put into your swap when I rate. (I will always rate a 5 unless I didn't get it, or it didn't fit the swap guidelines.) If I can tell you read my profile and/or put effort into your swap to make it something you'd like to get, that's what gets a heart from me. I really try to make my partner's swaps the best I can, and try to tailor it to their likes/dislikes when possible, so I like it when others do the same! :)

Wishlist

I would love any of the following: fun/quirky personalized return address labels, (can never seem to get enough of these!), ephemera, bits and bobs and/or miniatures for my fairy/gnome garden, cute/quirky letter sets or note cards, washi tape, fabric or trims, atc or cardmaking supplies, rubber stamps, atcs, and I LOVE music mix cd's. :)

That's odd, it showed up fine on the preview. Sorry about that. I'll try a different image: ;)

That's funny that you caved- I did too on one of mine- well, I knew it was a fink flamingo ornament cause his little feet were poking out of the wrapping. The chopsticks weren't exactly wrapped in a clever way. :-) Hope you like everything!

Dear Meg,

I'm sending you something! :D

You'll see from the envelope, it's taped all over now, and I found some bubble wrap too. I hope it arrives safely this time... :D
