About Me

8/11/14--just on here to check and clear old mesages...work,work, and more busy-ness...not sure if I will ever make it back, so I won't delete my account just yet...

NEWS 11/18 I have totally been absorbed with school, and work--yes work..I am employed now--that I have no time to do any swapping...I would like to get back to making some ATC's in the near future, but I am not going to commit to anything until the semester is over....please head to my blog if you want more info, since I do try to update that regularly.... NEWS 9/4 I just deleted my website, and I am now solely using my blog as a way to showcase my work, and other little things that are going on., so please feel free to visit me there and leave a comment! Also, school is back in session for me, so I will be busy again--look for a few swaps that I will post!

NEWS 8/17 My summer job has ended (hurray!) and now I will be getting back to work on building up my Etsy and other sites where I sell stuff...I may also do swaps here and there, and I am planning to sell some ATC kits, so be on the lookout for that!

d

I am a single mom of one, and I am also a full-time student; I went back to school in 2009 and I am finishing my degree in Secondary Education, and I just changed my concentration from Art to English (mainly writing), and I am also going to be taking some classes so I can teach English Language Learners as well.

We currently live in Reno, NV and have lived here since 2002, but before this we lived in California; Nor-cal and So-cal.

I have an Etsy account, and I have changed my focus on there, and I have pincushions and needlebooks, and I will be offering some miniature and doll quilts soon. I also have a blog on blogspot, so be sure to check that out. I just got an account on Big Cartel, and I will devote that to my paper crafting supplies.

b

I am also very interested in doing private country to country swaps--I love learning about other countries, and I would love to swap items and information with anyone in another country...

If you don't get a rating from me, please let me know---sometimes I forget to rate, especially when I have a lot going on.

Favorite Crafts

I have loved crafting for as long as I can remember--I used to make clothes for my Barbies. I love to draw, sew, and crochet; I have been known to knit. I love the world of altered art and mixed media. I just started doing miniature quilts, since I hurt my arm, its one of the few crafts I can actually do! I enjoy making ATC's, inchies, jewelry, and accessories like purses.I also love paper crafting. I started doing zentangles too, and I even got my daughter into them.

I am also guilty of getting into something and obsessing over it for a while before I get into something else--right now, my obsession is inchies, and hopefully, I will NOT want to stop making them for a long time!

Favorite Television

My favorite television shows include a lot of odd varieties: Glee, reality shows (Survivor, Amazing Race, Top Chef, Cops, So You Think You Can Dance), true crime shows, and shows on channels like Bravo, TruTV, A&E, TLC and Discovery Channel. I also like to watch wrestling (WWE). My guilty pleasure is Toddlers and Tiaras.

Favorite Music

I love all kinds of music: 70's disco, 70's and 80's R&B and classic soul, 80's new wave and hair metal, pop, hip hop, and sometimes alternative, classic rock, and rock.

Likes

If you ever wanted to know what I like or collect, you have come to the right spot!

Likes: Pink, candy, Hello Kitty, kawaii, hearts, stars,socks, purses, fabric, the beach, Japanese, Mexican and Indian (India) things; fabric, pirates, ATC's, inchies, vintage, paper crafting, scrapbooking supplies, book pages, lip gloss, tiny things, bees, Tim Holtz

Craft themes I like: Virgin Mary, Asian, India, Day of the Dead, Steampunk, shrines, recycled/repurposed, vintage, Loteria

Dislikes

I admit it--there are some things I really don't like:

overt religious themes (except for Virgin Mary images), politics, bugs (except for bees), blood and gore, clowns (although, I do have some paper with vintage clowns and circus that aren't too creepy), things for little kids since I don't have a little kid, dogs, puppets especially marionettes, monkeys, earrings (my ears aren't pierced), black licorice (yuk!),

Things I Collect

Chinese Buddha figures, Maneki Neko figures (Beckoning cat--the ones with one paw up from Japan), postcards, buttons (also called badges), ATC's (all kinds including Loteria), inchies, coins from foreign countries

Wishlist

postage stamps--new or used, papers and ephemera from foreign countries, coins and paper money from foreign countries, Canadian things (for my daughter), fabric--especially from Japan, small pieces of scrapbooking paper for making ATC's, scrapbooking supplies like brads and punchies, pages from old books, tiny plastic charms or toys (like gumball charms), Hello Kitty, vintage items like digital collage sheet images or lace, digital collage sheet cast-offs,anything Tim Holtz, and anything from the things or themes I like above.

Tea Time!

I do like to tea swaps, and I wanted to let people know that I am only allergic to penicillin, so don't send me any old and moldy tea!! I love green, white and herbal teas, especially those that are flavored.

FLAKERS!

I was hoping never to open a section like this again, but here it is; I have been flaked on in two big swaps and I am not happy about it.

@bandakarhu for the Art Journal for Beginners swap--hasn't been online since Oct 27

@MommaWlf for the huge 100,000 swap--she hasn't been online since Oct 28

If you'd like to still send something for Deb, you are more than welcome to. Our swap doesn't officially end until 24 hours from now and then I will wait till all of the goodies trickle in to me before I wrap it up and send it to her. My address is in the swaps. Thanks :)
