-finding small treasures

-nature. How it works and the creatures in it.

-making and listening to music

-recycled things

-Journaling and art journaling. Its a new obsession with me.

-mexican skulls/the whole culture

-parties with good friends

-black and white stripes and patterns (dont know why..)

-mixed media art

-Weird photography. I like to take pictures of dead animals, graffiti (especially in other countries and towns), freight trains, funny bathroom writing, butt cracks, etc..

These are most of my favorites for my whole life so far..

Comment: I am rating this a one because I still have not received the journal. I gave you a little extra time,and I PM'd you if I did not have the journal by Friday I would rate you. I received no reply to the last two pm's I sent. I will reverse this rating if and when the journal arrives to a 3. Sorry.

Comment: Seasonal - Thank you for sending on time. I wish the glitter had been more secured because I had to just throw the note, the envelope, and the glitter away because it made a huge mess.

Peony rated for Inspire Me Cahier on Apr 26, 2010
Comment: You are amazing! What a fabulous swap! Thank you so much! I’ve been burned a lot lately with swaps seeming very thrown together, and I too carried around my journal and worked on it for hours and hours over the last couple of months- so this is really so wonderful getting something with such obvious care and attention put into it. And the funniest thing I use the same Melville quote in my cahier! So totally inspired! Awesome, awesome , awesome! LOVE!!!!
Response: I loved that swap! Ive been getting burned lately too... If you just keep up with these journals you can come out with some neat stuff :] Thanks for leaving such a nice response it means a lot.
