♥ A little bit about me...

Last Updated Jan 2013

Hello! :) I have enjoyed crafting ever since I can remember. I love to receive art from different places around the world. I love swap-bot because it's reason to craft and learn from others!

I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, gardening, baking, trying new recipes, painting, bicycling, running, tennis, swimming and going to the beach.

I don't watch too much tv, but when I get a chance I like detective shows, America's Test Kitchen, Dr. Oz, and nature programs. I love funny movies!

I love gardening, animals, and just being outside.

♥ My Favorite Crafts...

My favorite crafts are :

  • 4x4 Watercolor Paintings

  • Handmade or Altered recipe cards

  • Recipe Mini-zines - cooking/baking

  • Hand carved stamps

  • Mini books (matchbox sized) I have a small collection, inchie books, button

  • Making altered matchboxes

  • Painting

  • Needlefelting

  • Knitting

♥ Some other things I like..

  • Plumerias- the flower

  • Tuberose

  • Art in the style of Gaelle Boissonnard (I love her art!)

  • The Beach/ Tropical Themes

  • Ocean/Sea life

  • Gardening/Gardens

  • Tennis- My favorite player is Roger Federer

  • Sweet themes- cupcakes, candy, cakes, slice of pie, pie

  • I love animals- some of my favorites are Otters, Dauchsunds, Siamese Cats

  • Original Strawberry Shortcake

  • Food and Wine

Comment: I just received your zine. The color is so bright and cheery. I love your illustrations. My favorite Enchildadas are green ones... I have a love affair with tomatillos!!!! I will have to give yours a try. We like that kind of dip too. We have a recipe that is very similar to the sweet corn cakes called Sweet Corn Souffle. I make it every year for our Thanksgiving meal. I will be trying years... it's delicious sounding!!! I will be getting a new ink cartridge soon so that I can print off my zine in color for you. If you have any more recipe zines to swap I would love to swap with you. I am glad that you are joining one of them. Thanks so much for the extra zine. I was wondering how to create one of those mini books. Much appreciated!
Response: Thanks for swapping with me!! So glad you liked my recipe zine. I'd love to trade another time. Keep me posted if you host any more recipe zine swaps. :) Have a great weekend!!
