10/9/16 - Thank you for all the kind messages of concern I received during hurricane Matthew. We are fine. Just had some limbs down but no damage. Life is good.
Rating: Second only to making, I love rating...and responding to ratings. I alway find myself grinning like a fool when I'm doing either of those.
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.
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.
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!
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.
However it's easiest to mail items to me and what ever makes my swap buddy the happiest makes me happy too!
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!
