About Me

Manic vintage magpie.Quirky in general. A bit dark, sarcastic. I really regret giving my entire cache of craft supplies away (5 garbage bags full) when we had to downsize to a smaller place.Thankfully, the generous members of SB have helped replenish me back to hoarder status! I love to cook and make a mean hummus. I love animals and am lucky I work in a dog friendly office.I worked in the cosmetics dept during college and am still a makeup junkie . I have a thing for piling on vintage jewelry. I'm trying to learn how not to kill the herbs I've planted. UPDATE: herbs officially dead.

Favorite Crafts

Utilizing found or unusual crap. My style is more street than Michael's. Mail art, collage,paper folding,mini books,journals,handmade smash/glue books, altered books, altering anything with old/chunky crap, glass, metal,and paper. I love doing handmade postcards, boxes, kits, bundles, ATCs. Mixed media rocks. Graphic Arts, SPRAY PAINT!

Wanna learn

I wish I could sew and do needle crafts. I like to buy thrift store dresses, no matter how ugly they are, and make them super cute. I got the inspiration from the "New Dress A Day" blog. I would like to take wood block, letterpress, and book binding classes. I love ink on paper.

How I roll

Please play nice. If you didn't receive something from me that you were supposed to, please PM me.I never flake (i'm so all about karma), so it may have gotten lost in the mail.If this happens I will do my best to get a replacement to you. Also, I always rate and would appreciate it if you would do the same. If I leave a group it's me, not you. I prob haven't participated and don't wanna clog up space for someone else.

Comment: Thanks so much for the plethora of postcards! The work that you did on them is just gorgeous. However, the swap description asked for the swap to be sent in a decorated envelope. It was not, so I'm sorry but I cannot give you a heart.
Response: My sis has been in icu so I guess I'm a little spun and missed that. No worries,i really appreciate the five. Thank you so much!

Comment: I love your postcard, especially where it's torn with a little bit of the text peeking out from underneath. Your art rocks too! Thanks for your kind words. Living in a small town means a half an hour trip to the nearest Michael's and AC Moore...it's not all that it's cracked up to be. In your town, you have access to the world and other people's art probably within walking distance of your front door! Never mind the polar vortex Maine has been mercilessly sucked into this winter!
Response: YAY! It means a lot coming from you! Thank u so much for the heart!
