About Me

I am the mama of three smalls and I graduated college with an art degree and now work in an incredibly uncreative job. I enjoy neatly folded things in my life. I don't look like I like lovely things, but I do. One of my life goals is to have five pairs of identical black pants that fit well and 15 shirts of identical material and color that each possess different collar and sleeve characteristics.

Favorite Music

I don't really have favorites, but I like positive, encouraging stuff and weird cheesy stuff like the sound tracks to the Last of the Mohicans, Robin Hood, John Adams, Braveheart.

Favorite Books

I adore many different intelligent children's books, and Robert Sabuda and his pop-up book artistry never ceases to amaze me. I like art crit and art history books also, I like a book that engages me. Hitchhikers Guide, Smoke and Mirrors, and On a Pale Horse are also okay ones.

Favorite Movies

THX 1138, Northfork, Hotel Rwanda, alice, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, the Cowboy Bebop movie, the fountain, Syriana, Like Water for Chocolate, children of men, fiddler on the roof, west side story, Pi, babel, the island, equilibrium. Just weird random stuff.

Favorite Crafts

I love reconfiguring things and finding pretty arrangements.....often Haim Steinbach style. Oh, and I pretty much want to do anything to make an interesting environment for my children to grow up in.

Other Things That are Lovely

Bows. Quirkiness. Dr Pepper. Strait lines, repetition and geometry. Cinnamon and vanilla. Textures. Pocky. Containers that contain containers. Sincerity. Plain brown Kraft paper. Cute, plump, stylized animals. Etsy. Olive, peach, sage and cream (the colors and the foods). Whimsy. Beautiful handmade soaps cut from loafs. Cutely printed Japanese fabric. Symbolism and allegory. Tea. Little tiny things. Antique hot air balloons, vintage acrobats, Leonardo's inventions. Short stories. Handcrafted bath and body products. Envelopes. Ground pumice. Abstractions. Homebirth. Recycling and upcycling. Melodies and Harmonies. Bento. Meaningful contrivances. Altered books and art. Artist Robert ParkeHarrison.

I rate! BUT ...

If you do not receive a package or rating from me, please let me know. I will always send and rate, it's not at all rude to remind me or inform me if I somehow overlook such things.

Not my favorites:

glitter, overly cutesy, dolls, pink, flowery, horror, gross, grotesque, scary stuff.

Comment: I do like the unusual photo ! Thank you, I received it today. Hope things have settled down some for you. ~Gail
Comment: OMG! What a great postcard/piece of art. I absolutely LOVE the piece of chocolate cake you made. This is one of the most creative and wonderful pieces of mail I have EVER received. Thank you. If I could give you five hearts, I would!!! =)
Comment: Thank you! The purse is very cute, the fabric is pretty and I love the test-tube magnet! I hope your craft fair goes/went well.
Comment: Oh dear. This was more like an art experience than just a packet of stuff. Loved the adorable way the items were labeled - and the items themselves :) Green things, for example, were very uplifting. I've not yet eaten the snack, but it'll be interesting. My guess is that those tattoo bars (?! :) can't be obtained anywhere in Finland. Thank you so much!
Response: yay! hope you liked it!

You should go ahead and rate @ABPMomma a one for your homeschool scavenger swap. She is a returning flaker who has had many, many profiles here and scammed people out of nearly 150 swaps. Read the thread in the Public Forums here.

Hello :)

I just wanted to stop by and invite you to the "Shop Swap & Blog" USA Swap!


dangerine on May 8, 2009:

read your profile randomly while at work...made me think i should recommend the book "virtual light" to you since it sounds like you might be the main character with her idential outfits...

Meadow on Aug 26, 2008:

Just to let you know -- I sent your flat me journal back last week. But, I sent first class and so could not do delivery confirmation. Hoping it arrives safely and will you please let me know you got it? I hope you like what I did with the journal. I think you will enjoy where I took your Flat Me.
