About Me

I have a very full life. I'm married, have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren!

My degree is in home ec education, with a minor in art (emphasis on weaving), but life has a way of twisting and turning. I work full-time for a mental health agency as a Special Projects Coordinator/Compliance Officer.

I love texture and color, textiles and gardening. Collage work and various forms of altered art fit me to a tee. I enjoy swaps and enjoy the conversations and artwork that result from them.

I also love traveling. I have family in Germany and I've also traveled to Ireland. Both countries, in my opinion, full of color, texture, imagination and inspiration.

Things I love to work with

Blues,aquas, teals, green, cream, browns and pinks. Vintage textiles and ribbons,(fabric and paper but especially satin and velvet ribbons), buttons,old sewing notions, gardens, botanical prints,old playing cards, old games and game pieces and Harker and McCoy pottery. I love Words; text, great fonts, quotes, old hymnals or Bibles,dictionaries, maps and vintage Sunday school items. I especially like botanical prints; flowers,trees, birds (vintage, realistic). Decorated rubber-stamped papers you have made. Small snippets of handmade paper or unusual fabric or trims would be great as well. I enjoy doing ATCs, inchies and charm pieces. Little snippets work well. Die-cut stickers -like Mrs. Grossman stickers.

Have a problem with

Strong scents such as perfumes and cigarette smoke. I don't like them and husband has allergies.

Things I don't like or need

Reds, blacks, oranges, nudes, really contemporary stuff, photos of "Victorian type" women, children and cats. (I'm just kind of bored with that look..)Zodiac, gift wrap ribbon. I do not like sparkly stickers or non-die-cut (the kind of sticker that has a rim of white or background color around it.)

Favorite Books

Power of One by Bryce Courtney, Ahab's Wife, Good Grief, Secret Life of Bees, A Thousand Splendid Suns, Lord of the Rings, Mere Christianity, Looking for God by Nancy Ortberg,and Harry Potter, Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls

Authors: C.S. Lewis, Mave Binchy, Tolkien, Bryce Courtney, Khaled Hosseini

Favorite Music

Pretty eclectic - primarily folk - John Gorka, Pierce Pettis - but also strong classical tenor voices - Josh Groban, Andre Bocelli- some classical, James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, some contemporary Christian music, Cris Tomlin, Chris Castle

Favorite Television

I don't watch too much TV or movies, but when I do, I like to be able to work on a project. Here are some of my favorites:Monarch of the Glen, Ballykissangel,(BBC series, I think. Yeah for NETFLIX-they are addictive.) Dancing with the stars,Mad Money,Squawk Box, Fast money, Cleveland CAV basketball games,the news,Divine Design, NCIS and the Mentalist, and Cash Cab while I'm working in the kitchen.

What I'd appreciate

Feedback! I'm not all that concerned about ratings, but I would like to know if those I send to receive what I sent. I typically put a fair amount of time into the swaps - and would just like to know if folks received them or not. Thanks!

Things I like

I've taken a liking to the square glass canisters that you can get at thrift stores for about 50 cents. Usually three different sizes - great for storing little stuff and I can see what I have.

Comment: Susan, Just wanted to say thanks a million!!! Your swap was a teeny late, but you totally communicated with me up front. =) Anyways I loved my journal so much and can't wait to make the lemon pepper pasta. I loved the way you set up your Stepford quotes and everything. I love that you read my profile and new my sick fascination with Marie Antoinette. I am wearing my new apron for my honey when he comes home and my biz partner and I are listening to the CD you made while we work on some new bikini designs. Nothing more to say other than you are a class act swapper and hope to be friends with you so add me, K! Love Marie Antoinette
Response: Lauren, Thanks for your kind words. Glad you're having fun with the goodies! I added you as a friend. Many thanks, Susan
