About Me

I am a mixed media artist, living in Minnesota, who enjoys using unconventional materials to create something beautiful. You can see more of what I create at www.treasuresofavalon.etsy.com I'm also a consultant for my family's game store, called Geek World(look them up on facebook, the store is in Tyler, TX). Meaning I recommend games they should carry, and when my mom can't remember how to play a game she calls me on the phone and has me walk her through it while she's teaching it to someone, lol. As a result I get a lot of geek related ephemera in the way of packaging, ad cards, free comic book day stuff, etc. Pretty awesome.

I have three kitties (Freeman, Cadburry, and Jack).

I am a substitute teacher on the side, but my main passion is art. I travel all over the place during the summer to various art and craft shows. I specialize in using recycled materials to create my products. I also do Henna Tattoos at some of the craft shows.

Favorite Music

I have very ecclectic taste in music but some of my favorites are Fur Elise by Beethoven and anything by Cyndi Lauper. I also love Ani DiFranco and David Bowie. And I recently rediscovered my love for Gypsy Foot

Favorite Books

The Witch of Blackbird Pond, The Upanishads, Calvin and Hobbes, But No Elephants, The Three Sisters trilogy,

I also collect books of Fairy Tales and enjoy reading entries out of the dictionary.

Favorite Movies

Labyrinth, anything Tim Burton, Pirates of the Carribean, Legend, Lord of the Rings, Lars and the Real Girl, Lillies of the Fields, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, Arsenic and Old Lace, Goonies, Amelie

Favorite Television

Bones, Law and Order SVU, Old Christine, Raising Hope, Dharma and Greg, Criminal Minds, NCIS, Dr. Who, Better off Ted, Big Bang Theory, Project Runway, RuPaul's Drag Race, Bad Judge, Face Off

My guilty pleasures are Judge Judy and The Real Housewives, shh! don't tell anyone.

Send by dates...

I totally understand that things happen. Just communicate and if it's for a good reason I will still consider rating a five. If you send your swap late without communicating with me ahead of the due date, I will rate you a three, regardless of how many extras you include. Sending on time is part of the swap requirement.

Comment: Edit - I was checking ratings before archiving swaps and your heart was missing 😞 maybe the ratings tool doesn't like my mobile but hopefully the heart is in there now cause this swap definitely deserved it! ❀❀❀. Not sure what happened to the rating for this swap but let's try this again...Thank you again for another fantastic swap - I love all the bits and bobs!!! I will have fun putting all these items to good use 😁
Response: It seems ratings have been going wonky lately, hopefully it's a temporary glitch! And you are most welcome, hope you are inspired by the selection!

Comment: Thanks! I've always thought faces on rock formations were creepy. It's funny how the brain makes us see things like that.

Thanks so much for the wrapping paper samples for the Swap Tag - US Rated swappers. I had no idea they would be so gorgeous!!! I am seeing ATC backgrounds (if l don't just keep them to look at) ...

How can I thank you? How is it that you sent such a perfectly appropriate junk journal kit RAK? Did you look at my profile? And why is the timing so timely? Did you think I would appreciate a tag with a gardening quote? How did you know I would I like the notesheet with the bunny and the bee?
