About Me

I'm married to a great guy, mom of an amazing son, and I have an adorable dog! I love to hang out with my family, go to flea markets and estate sales, garden, go to the movies, craft, take road trips, and play games.

You can count on me to always send and always rate! If for some reason you have not received a swap, please contact me before rating so that I can resend.

Favorite Books

I love to read! A few of my favorite books are Water For Elephants, The Kite Runner, The Fourth Hand, and The Prince Of Tides. I am also a MAGAZINE ADDICT! Especially Somerset Studio, and any craft/decorating magazines.

Favorite Music

Love to listen to Aerosmith, Fleetwood Mac, The Killers, Bitter Sweet, Duffy, Stevie Nicks, Rolling Stones........

Favorite Movies

I love watching cheesy-"bad" B- movie horror flicks with my family, Vegas Vacation, Christmas Vacation, Nip/Tuck, Lost, Rescue Me, The Office, Dexter, and True Blood.

I love to make

I love to make altered art, greeting cards, ATC's, things for my home, ornaments, jewelry, collage, alter books, paint and use photos in my artwork.

A Few of My Favorite Things

EVERYTHING VINTAGE!!! Ephemera,Vintage greeting cards, old Valentine's, vintage papers and pictures, EVERYTHING FRENCH! Estate sales, flea markets (old) crepe paper, garage sales, bird and nests, toile, mermaids, ruffles, lemons, old Christmas ornaments, charms, Marie Antoinette, ruffles, old flower seed packets, dogs, circus-themed items, violets, old jewelry and watch parts, pansies, pink roses, ribbon, old flash cards, Victorian/German scrap, vintage holiday decorations, typewriter keys, glitter (the MORE the BETTER!), tape-measurers, old children's books and games, old photos, seashells, chandeliers and crystals, crowns and tiaras, old books, the ocean, Christmas, botanicals, old labels, Halloween, pin-up girl art, old paper, old postcards, vintage millinery flowers, Holy/saint/prayer cards, Catholic religious images, the Eiffel tower, gypsy images, holidays, raspberries and blackberries, surprises, vintage chenille chicks, flapper girl images, peaches, chocolate, old world/Tuscan colors. I like things that are more artsy than cutesy!

Things I don't like

Japanese animation, cutesy animation like Hello Kitty, Dora...pre-made scrapbook supplies and embellishments, most Disney images, neon colors, computer-generated crafts, cats (I'm allergic to them), cutesy stuff, coffee (except iced coffee drinks!) -Please don't send scented crafts, food items, or things that smell of cigarettes due to headache issues.

By The Way

Just to let my partners know- I have no problem with nudie art!

A belated, but sincere, thank you for the wonderful assortment of Mary Engelbreit images - including paper dolls which are going to be cut out soon and given to my daughters for their upcoming birthdays later this week and next month. (This was for a November wish that you granted me on the Wishlist group.) What a delightful package to open and go through! Ann
