About Me

I live in Titusville, Fl., a small town between Cocoa Beach and Daytona Beach. Titusville's kind of like nowheresville, but I love it here!

During the summer we spend a lot of time at the beach and not enough time kayaking in our beautiful lagoon.

I have a thirteen-year old son and a twenty three year-old daughter. I often joke that I'm going to change my son's middle name to "whatwasmymotherthinking", but he's a funny kid and we have a good time together.

I have a lot of interests and way too many hobbies!

I love to cook, but not to bake (that's my husband's thing and that's just fine with me.)

I love to travel, but can't stand cruises. I like going places and learning about the people, the area and especially the food of the region or country.

I can be obsessive about knitting but prefer to do it in solitude instead of groups - I guess you could say that I don't play well with others.

I'm a warm weather girl who believes the only place ice belongs is in my scotch and the only snow I want to see is in a paper cone drizzled with sticky red syrup.

My sense of humor can be a little odd, but I'm blessed with friends who must "get me" because my best pals have been my friends for 20+ years.

I believe that if you can count your friends on one hand you are truly blessed. I enjoy my many acquaintances, but I know the difference between an acquaintance and a friend.

You never know what may come out of my pockets - that torn lottery ticket I found in the parking lot or the fortune from a wonton cookie. I'm really going to have to come up with a way to stop saving all the bits and baubs, that someday will find their way onto an ATC or into an art journal.

So, there you have it: That's kind of me in a nutshell.

Favorite Music

There's generally classical music playing constantly in my kitchen.

Those who really know me, know that I know more words to more 70's songs than should be allowed for someone who can't carry a tune if her life depended on it!

My musical philosophy is that if you can't sing well, sing loud!

My iPod is bursting at the seams with podcasts. I love love love podcasts! I listen to knitting podcasts when I'm knitting, gardening podcasts when I'm gardening, organizational and life-coachy podcasts when I'm cleaning or decluttering.

Did I say how much I love podcasts? I fear my family is going to stage an intervention.

Favorite Television

Cooking shows are probably my favorites: Top Chef, Master Chef and anything that includes Anthony Bourdain. I adore Anthony Bourdain. Oh and Gordan. That would be Chef Ramsay to you , but I like to think we are on a first name basis!

I like Downton Abbey and have been known to binge watch various HBO and Showtime series like some people eat potato chips!

Favorite Crafts

Any craft I'm doing at any given moment is my favorite.

Right now (January 2015), I'm crazy about ATCs, Art Journaling and Altered Books.

This is the year that I'm going to push myself to work outside the box - my box - and try everything I've always put off trying.

Mailing preferences

However it's easiest to mail items to me and what ever makes my swap buddy the happiest makes me happy too!

The bottom line

I'm crazy about color - big, bold, noisy color - and white. Lots of white to show off all those loud colors.

I love grafitti and even thought I know it's technically vandalism, I photograph it whenever I see good ones.

Steampunk - love that too! That's something I want to experiment more with this year as well.

Shakespeare, Jane Austin, Jasper Fforde, Neil Gaiman and Christopher Moore are five people (real or imaginary) I would love to go to Mardi Gras with.

Quirky - off the wall - funny - I love all of it!

The thing I like best about Swap-bot is receiving something that someone has made and is so excited about sharing with someone else. I personally participate to push myself outside my comfort zone and it has been an incredibly rewarding experience!

I always read profiles and find them fascinating! There are some very cool people out in this wacky world!

Comment: Thank you for the ATC, I love it! Since creating this swap I look for bits and pieces on the ground all the time now...lol. The napkins are fun too.
Response: So glad you received it. I was starting to worry. I love finding the bits on the ground now. Found a fortune cookie fortune yesterday and felt like I had scored! Thanks again for hosting the swap and for the rating too!

Comment: Two months ago Roel bought me a blender, but shame on me, I still don't know how to make good smoothies! Thanks for the delicious package! -xx-
Response: I know how you feel - I am not a pro at smoothies either. Sometimes just the color is a bit off putting but at least I haven't had to hold my nose yet! LOL Thanks for the heart! Looking forward to the next swap though I think I'm going to have to take June off. Things are getting busy and I don't like it!

Comment: I once have visited Kennedy Space Centre, in 1996 when I had a two-weeks tour in Orlando. But they didn't have those space cookies then. I really LOVE this package. It's awesome!! Many thanks :-)

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful postcard. I am AMAZED at how you cut around the woman's fingers without snipping any fingers off! I've bought yarn on trips too, so I have sheep from New Zealand and dubious wool from China.
Response: So happy you liked it! Yes - I was a bit concerned that she would be an digit short. Thanks for the heart!

Comment: What FUN!!... I adored my little "treasure trove" of unique goodies!! The yarn bit (and the story of your acquiring it) is AWESOME!! I just love cool fibers! The texture of the painted paper is so cool... I will use it on something very special, I'm sure... and the fairy-typed note was an EXTRA special touch!!! You Made My Day! (even if you did snort... er.. I mean, laugh, at my wrestling cards) LOL!!! Have a WONDER-FILLED week!
Response: So very happy you liked it. I giggled all the way through it! (Even when I snorted, um laughted!) I hope they do another one of these again.

And a very happy birthday to you! No snow here! I did go to an ice bar on my birthday. The tables, chairs and even the glasses were made of ice.

A belated Happy Birthday. Mine was on the fourth. I turned 50 and where I live we received 6 inches of snow that day
