About Me

I am an educator and fiber/mixed media artist.

Fall of 2019 finds me wandering back to swap-bot with an empty nest. The offspring are both in college. Son is starting a bachelor's in theatre and daughter has begun a master's in global public health. I'm a proud mama.

Favorite Crafts and Supplies

As a fiber artist, I'm into crochet, beading, dying( tie dye, batik, dye painting), and embroidery. And art quilting and needle felting, needle punch work and locker hooking. I also like collage, drawing with Prismacolor colored pencils and ultra fine line permanent markers. And, I make ATCs.

"Dream of the sun dreaming its worlds. Sing till the song throws out root, trunk, branches, birds, stars. Sing until the dream engenders the spring at which you may drink and recognize yourself and recover."

-Octavio Paz

Favorite Reads

Picture books with witches, elves and fairies

Neil Gaiman

Mysteries by women authors.

Fiber arts books.

Field guides

musical tastes

psychedelic rock, jam bands, bluegrass, folk, jazz, indie, old timey country

Things I am NOT fond of

Intolerance.

Micro-managers.

Pastel colors.

Scented items.

Please Consider This...

Give the gift of life!

Please consider becoming a bone marrow donor/ stem cell donor by joining the National Marrow Donor Program.

Donor Site for those in Europe

You could "Be the Match" and have the unique opportunity of saving someone's life.In case you're wondering, marrow and stem cell donation is done while you're alive. It's much simpler than giving someone a kidney.

This is an issue that is very close to home for me. My daughter received a peripheral stem cell transplant from a donor in the registry in July 2010. Her donor is in Germany!

Also, please consider being a blood and platelet donor at your local blood bank.

Wondering...

Does anyone remember dotee dolls? I've had a hankering to make one/some. PM me if you want to swap dotees.

Comment: Wowzers Mindy! What a wonderful swap you sent to me. The envelope is so pretty, and then inside I found 7 great images for my enjoyment and collections. I'm just smiling already even before I get to your questions and answers (#7 had me laughing out loud). . . . . I'll send a message to you going over your Q&A. I made a little zine for my Q&A, and although I received a Heart and a very nice comment on it, there wasn't any feedback on the content and that was a little disappointing to me. P.S. - my favorite images were the owls, the radishes, and the Matisse Thanks 😊
Response: You're welcome! This was so fun to put together for you. And, thank You for your answers to the questions. Doing that makes the swap experience sweeter.
