I am a retired urban planner and semi-professional photographer. I live in a small, suburban town east of Pasadena, CA. I love to craft, (wreaths, paper crafting, glass fusing jewelry, and all kinds of crafts whatever moves me. It changes all the time. (ADD? ha ha!) I am an avid baker and have taken a professional pastry making class as a gift to myself in retirement. I love to travel all over the world to photograph landscapes and wildlife. I just got back from my 2nd African trip. I also do portrait and street photography.I also have a sense of humor that borders on raunchy. I have a white Cairn/Scottish terrier, brichon frise mix and a ginger young cat. He's tearing up the place, but he cracks me up. . I have one daughter who is 30. I love birds and all wildlife and I love flowers and vegetable gardening too.I raise monarchs in the summer months as well. Lots to do when you don't have a day job!
My Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ondreafae/ has predominately my baking creations, and my crafting as well. My photos are listed here: https://www.instagram.com/ondreatyephotographi
I love stickers of whimsical dogs, cats, mice, rabbits and frogs and I love flower stickers that are real-ish looking and butterflies and dragonflies and pigs, particularly flying pigs. I love anything floral and anything weird. If I were a sticker company there are ones I would do, fat ladies, cat mermaids, flying pigs and fairy, elephants, you get the idea. ...
I am getting into ATCs and love them as well. I do raised collage.
I don't have favorite books, I do have fav movies but don't really see the point of listing it here. I am not into celebrities or movie paraphernalia anyway or branded stuff. Living in La La land, we're used to seeing movies being made in front of us. In fact, they filmed all the time in front of City Hall where I worked. I once walked up to the director and tell him why they ruined the TV series. Hey, he's on my turf, so I felt I could:). I like jelli pens, and unique craft supplies. I have plenty of watercolors, gauche and acrylic paints so not that. I love those press-on stickers that look vintage. In fact, I love any vintage-looking stickers and ephemera and those Tim Holtz Ideology bags of things. I also love vintage old-timey postcards of people, and even if it’s a old-timey photograph, postcards, old magazine covers and advertisements. Man they are so cool….I like old how to craft books… I love gift cards! Starbucks, Subway, El Pollo Loco, Taco Bell, Panera Bread. You know the usual… I appreciate anything homemade; I do not judge, so long as you didn't slap it together as an afterthought. Whatever your talent is, I'm sure I'll love it! I felt I needed to update what I do not like as it’s important. I don’t like notecards, journals, (someone sent one to me which I love with a pen but no more) or homemade journal pages pens, washi tape (Egad, I have some much already!). I do, however, LOVE beautiful hand painted watercolors of birds or botanicals..
