My Etsy Favorites
SOME NEW INTERESTS
(in case you've been sending to me for years and are tired of my profile)
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, zydeco, CS Lewis, e e cummings, Max Lucado, Gaudi, French Impressionist painters, The West Wing, Amazing Race, NYC, Broadway, France, Yosemite, Santa Barbara, the Tour de France, Siamese cats. My favorite travels have been to France, New Zealand, Switzerland, Barcelona, London and the Cotswolds, Yosemite, Kauai and a Disney cruise anywhere!
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.
My happy place is the beach/ocean. Sitting in solitude on my verandah on a Disney cruise ship, enjoying the sea, clouds and sunshine is perfect!
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:
school theme, especially vintage: pages from readers, vocabulary/math flashcards, spelling & penmanship books, report cards, class photos, 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 a Sizzix/Cricut type machine (I don't) I love the real intricate designs, any Tim Holtz, damask cartridge, etc.
bug/insect themes, stationery, notecards, ribbon, lace, buttons, recipe cards, magnets, post-its, quotes, vintage postcards.
My PREFERENCE is always BLANK CARDS SENT IN AN ENVELOPE (if you don't mind.)
My favorites would be:
Maxicards (postcard with matching stamp and cancellation on image side of card)
cards from Daring Dames: a Kyler Martz Postcard set
paper cut postcards
Sanrio pc's (Helllo Kitty, Spottie Dottie, Twin Stars, etc. especially with foreign language on front)
Cavallini postcards, especially eager for those from Paris Christmas Glitter Greetings - I only have one
cards of watercolor art by Chihiro Iwasaki
cards by artists Shinzi Katoh, Mila Marquis or Cathy Delannsay
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
US National Parks (I need American Samoa, Cabrillo, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Channel Islands, Congaree, Gates of the Arctic, Guadalupe Mtn, Hawaii Volcanoes, Harpers Ferry, Isle Royale, Katmai, Kenai Fjords, Kobuk Valley, North Cascades, Organ Pipe Cactus, Pinnacles, Valley Forge, Virgin Islands, Wrangell St. Elias)
postcards of fog, rain, amazing clouds
I'd also love these themes:
NOT INTO: alphabet, kid stickers, unicorns, hearts, rainbows
