About Me

I share my home in North Carolina with my husband of 25 years, our dog, and sometimes our son and daughter. My daughter just graduated from college, and my son is almost done.

For many years I devoted myself to parenting and homeschooling my children. This time in my life is all about me. I am still trying to figure out what's next. I enjoy the extreme luxury of being able to stay home and craft all day.

I LOVE COLOR. A recent, very long search for a new (used) car brought us to a plain white mini van. The salesman, knowing my fear of driving, encouraged me by saying white cars are the safest because they are the easiest to see. My husband laughed and explained to the man that if I had a choice, my car would be the color of my shirt. :) It was bright pink. :) He was exaggerating. I would choose turquoise.

Favorite Colors

Spring green and turquoise. Also pinks, dark coral, creamy yellows, and not-too-bright oranges. I like rainbowy colors also, but the mid-tones are my favorites.

Favorite Movies

I DON"T like movies that are creepy, extremely violent, or depressing. Other than that, I'm easily entertained. The Proposal, Dirty Dancing, The Princess Bride, the Bourne series, Goodwill Hunting, The Blind Side, Notting Hill.....

Favorite Crafts

I am a reuse artist. I enjoy the thrift and creative challenge. It gives me great pleasure to make pretty things out of trash. I am a jack-of-many-trades, but master of none. Often I start with the materials, figure out a use for them, and then figure out how to prettify them.

I do a bit of sewing, quilting, embroidery, collage, card making, scrapboking, SMASH journaling, ATCs. and of course mail art.

My favortie things to receive

Cheerful thoughts

Kind words

Handmade items are treasures for me. Even if the swap calls for store bought, I would prefer handmade always.

Smash journal prompts/ideas

Small, colorful, cotton fabric scraps

Stickers - flat for decorating mail

Handmade envelopes

Stationery for letter writing. I write looong letters. Again, would love handmade.

I prefer non-touristy postcards if you have them. I'm working on a collection to dress up a large, boring, hallway wall.

As far as particular images go, in general, I like pretty, happy, colorful things.

ABCs of Me

A art therapy, ATCs

B buttons. birds, berries

C color, carousels, chandeliers, china, clouds, collage, county fairs

D daffodils

E elephants, embroidery

F felt, flowers, fabric, fairy tales, folk art

G gratitude, green, glass door knobs

H handmade, hardwood floors

I integrity

J Junk journals

K kindness, kissing!

L lavender, letter writing

M mosaics, miniature things, mail art

N Netflix

O old buildings

P pizza, patterns, postcards

Q quilts

R rainbows, rainy days, re-purposing stuff

S sincerity, stained glass, smooth stones

T trees, tea, tolerance, thrift stores

U

V vine-ripe tomatoes

W

X

Y yard sales

Z zinnias

Comment: β™₯ WOW!!! Thanks for the great envelope full of goodies. I really like your explanation of where everything came from. I bet it is hard choosing a side for the outside of your envelope from your Animalia book. Thanks again

Comment: Oh my gosh!! I am blown away by how beautiful these envelopes are. Everything is so wonderful. Thanks for the tip about the store. I am in Durham 6 times a year at least. My sister in law, and the cutest nieces and nephew in the world, live there. Thanks! I will have to find it.
Response: You are very welcome. Your sister-in-law should be familiar with The Scrap Exchange. They are a big part of the community here. It's a lot more than a store.
