About Me

I will not flake! Please let me know if you have not received something and I will re-make and resend if necessary (and probably be able to provide a photo of the original). If I am going to be late on something I will let you know!

I am a stay-at-home crafter and mother of a spunky puppy mutt named Eevee. I enjoy playing games (video, board and card) and going out to eat fancy things. Met my husband through ballroom dancing and we are trying to get back into it (it has been a few years since we took lessons.) Have a degree in photography and am going back for my masters in computer science. I enjoy anime, RPGs, cosplay, D&D and many other geeky things. My fav video game series is Suikoden. I LOVE playing board games and card games (but no one I know likes cards D:) I am probably a B-rank tea aficionado hehe.

Favorite Music

Enjoy anything with a good beat. Ballads and love songs just get me down (maybe because I am happily married and just don't relate to them any more or maybe I'm jaded haha)

Dislikes / Meh

Dislike:

  • Pink (the color)
  • Mauve
  • Fuschia
  • Religious quotes/imagery (generic spiritual/new age type things okay)
  • Politics

Meh:

  • Pastel colors
  • Pop Art (ie Andy Warhol)
  • Cats
  • ATCs with printed out pictures of someone else's art. I would much rather have something hand drawn even if you think you can't draw anything. (We all start somewhere :D) If you are going to use a printed image at least draw or paint on top of it or something. ATC= Artist trading card, not "here's a picture I found online card" lol. (Just my thoughts on it :D) (It also helps if you use nice paper and have a decent printer)

Favorite Board Games

  • Dominion
  • Mansions of Madness
  • Descent
  • Age of Camelot
  • Puzzle Strike
  • Cities of Iron
  • Guillotine
  • King of Tokyo
  • Carcassonne
  • Terra Mystica
  • 8 Minute Empire

Comment: Hi! Nice to meet a fellow sci-fi fan. Thanks for the wonderful papers. I plan to put them to good use. And I have no problem with plain envelopes. The fancy ones are nice but its what's inside that counts. :)
