I love to do many kinds of paper art, scrapbooking and journaling. Jesus loves me & I am eternally grateful. I love being a wife, mom, Disneyland tour guide and former teacher.
Passions for Handel's Messiah, country music, CS Lewis, e e cummings, Max Lucado, Gaudi, The West Wing, Madam Secretary, NYC, Broadway, France, Yosemite, Santa Barbara, art museums & history. My favorite travels have been to France, New Zealand, Switzerland, Barcelona, London and the Cotswolds, Yosemite and Kauai.
I collect old and new Golden Books and pop up books for kids and adults, Disney and Disneyland items (the older the better!) Nativities and vintage 1930's, 40's & 50's Christmas ornaments & cards. (Maybe I'm stuck in the past!)
One of my favorite things about my job is that I get to assist many precious families visiting Disneyland through the Make a Wish Foundation!
Currently crazy about:
children's book ephemera: dust jackets, ABC's, picture books, nursery rhymes, Caldecott nominees, Golden Books, stickers & book marks based on classic characters, bookplates. Especially loving Paddington Bear right now!
school theme, especially vintage: pages from readers, vocabulary/math flashcards, spelling & penmanship books, report cards, school awards, class photos, school stationery, logos.
Anything Disney, especially older items, pins, Mickey, Dumbo, Snow White, Dwarfs, Jiminy Cricket, Mary Poppins, Bambi, Thumper, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast
If you have rubber stamps, you could stamp or emboss some images of bicycles, typewriters or faces for me! If you have a Sizzix/Cricut type machine (I don't) I love the real intricate designs, like fancy flourishes, damask cartridge, etc.
stationery, notecards, ribbon, lace, buttons, recipe cards, magnets, post-its, quotes.
My PREFERENCE is always BLANK CARDS SENT IN AN ENVELOPE (if you don't mind.)
My favorites would be:
cards of watercolor art by Chihiro Iwasaki (love her children and flowers!)
cards by artists Shinzi Katoh, Mila Marquis or Cathy Delannsay
Maxicards (postcard with matching stamp and cancellation on image side of card)
map cards, especially foreign countries or unusual maps rather than states
cards with cut-outs
travel poster art cards (like Anderson Design Group art cards of National Parks)
nouvelle images cards
Gotochi postcards (especially doll, character, food) - previously mailed are OK, too
Disney cards (especially The Art of Disney: the Renaissance and Beyond or the Golden Age, 1950's-80's series, Disney artwork or international Disney cards)
Hello Kitty, Kerokerokeroppi or any Sanrio (especially with words printed in foreign language on image side of card)
I'd also love these themes:
