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.
