Favorite Crafts

Things I like to make:

ATC's
Collage art mixed media
any kinds of paper crafts
wire-wrapped jewelry
beaded jewelry
photography
digital art
paper dolls
handmade books RUBBER STAMPS!!!

I also collect minerals, crystals, rocks and fossils and am interested in metaphysics, magick and such.

We do not have cats and we don't smoke, so my swaps should be allergy friendly.

Favorite Music

I like all kinds of music...classic rock, willie nelson, bob dylan, coldplay, john stewart, americana, james taylor, etc...

Stevie Nicks is one of my heroes.

please no rap, disco, or hip hop. :-)

Favorite Movies

My favorites are romantic comedies. I like anything with Will Ferrell, Shirley McClain, Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt, Meryl Streep.

Favorite Television

Lately, my TV faves are Netflix originals...Orange is the New Black, Bloodlines, Jessica Jones, The Leftovers, Lost Girl, under the dome, Lost

Also, on the list are Reign, Big Bang, Modern Family, NCIS, Last Man on Earth and of course the Ellen Show. :-)

Recent TV includes Twin Peaks, Midnight Texas, Shameless

Favorite Books

Anything to do with paper crafts, arts and book making, wire jewelry and beading and gems and minerals.

I have a collection of old books and scrapbooks from the victorian era that I mostly use for inspiration.

When I read, I usually choose Stephen King, Dean Koontz, but have been known to read just about anything.

About Me

I am a retired computer programmer/analyst. After retirement, my husband and I spent a few years traveling in our RV so I didn't do much art or swaps because of our constant state of movement.

For the last 20 years, I have owned a metaphysical store and love rocks and minerals. Since retirement, my daughter has taken over the store management.

I also enjoy photography and digital art. Many years ago, I made lots of altered books and collage projects. Rubber stamps are my weakness.

I have three younger sisters, four daughters and two granddaughters and one grandson.

I do love most photography, especially nature shots and collage art. Anything steampunk or victorian usually excites me. And I like astrological related projects.

I am an original member of swap-bot...before there were ratings. So, I have actually done more swaps than what is included in my profile count. :-) I will never flake and will always rate as soon as I receive the swap. I am adult and ethical.

9/12/2016 Please help welcome my adult daughter to swap-bot. She is beginning to make some ATC's and other craft projects. She lives at home with us so our address is the same. Her swap-bot id is: @mandyswaps Mandy does not feel well much of the time so her participation may be limited.

LIkes

Likes...

I love anything victorian/edwardian. Maxfield Parrish is one of my favs. I think vintage nudes and mystical images are very cool. Deep, rich colors attract me...purples, greens, browns and blues. My preference is more artsy than clean and neat. Think Tim Holtz and Michael DeMeng. I also love collage supplies, religious things (like saint cards and milagros), and interesting papers. Old letters and scrapbooks fascinate me.

My favorite rubber stamps are Character Constructions by Catherine Moore. Wish I had money to buy them all. I have a small collection of Teesha Moore stamps and a very large collection of miscellaneous art stamps. Rubber stamps are one of my favorite things, but I really do not enjoy the Stampin' Up or CTMH brands. I like unusual art stamps. I rarely make greeting cards. Recently discovered Daniel Torrente stamps from Stampotique. They are awesome!

I am pretty tolerant and don't really get offended by much, so it's ok to send me "adult" projects. :-)

Occasionally, I drink tea, but not every day. I don't have any special favorite drink...mostly water. .

Dislikes

I am pretty tolerant of most things...not easily offended and very open minded.

Flakers & Non-Raters I am most frustrated by folks who do not rate or acknowledge that they received the swap I sent. Even if you don't like what I send, please rate. It's a big part of the game and on top of that...it's the kind and considerate thing to do.

Swaps

To me, swaps are like contracts and I promise to abide by my end. I will not flake and will rate as soon as possible after I receive the swap.

If you don't receive a swap from me or if you get one that is not right for whatever reason, please let me know. I will be happy to resend or fix things.

I try to take my letters to the post office for correct postage since most don't travel for one stamp these days. But, if you happen to get a postage due letter from me, please send me a message and I will send stamps to correct. I appreciate swappers who make sure their parcels are properly posted. Thanks!

Comment: Thank you for the adorable card! It brightened my day. Your note made me find a recipe for grits dressing. Can’t wait to try it out! Happy Holidays!!
Response: If you make grits dressing use regular white grits. I used stone ground yellow grits and they are too coarse. Glad you liked the card.

I got an ATC Jam homer with a vintage female that you started. I hope you love the end results. Lets Jam again.

Pandd on Mar 22, 2016:

Got the jams. I actually I got three that you participated in. One came through Hibiscus. I just love your backgrounds. They are beautiful by themselves. They will be on their way this week. Also thank you for the tissue paper. I love Timmy. Pat💕💕

Hey, I got the cutest, bird Atc Jam that I do believe started out as polka dot themed swap. I love it. Thanks for working on it.
