Crafting and making art is my biggest passion in life and I enjoy looking at other peoples art as well. I especially am hooked on ATC'S, chunky houses, inchies, skinny's, matchboxes and paintings. I love vintage style and old things in general. A fun outing for me would involve going to an antique store, or garage sale looking for that special find. I collect many different things including stamps, buttons, old postcards, skeleton keys, perfume bottles and old papers/letters etc., as you can tell, I am a bit of a pack rat, but I can't help it I love to be surrounded by beautiful things.
My favorite shows are Greys Anatomy, Heartland and The Bachelor.
I recently read a really good book called In The Night Garden that I liked a lot. Its sort of a fairy tale type book. I am also a fan of the Harry Potter and Twilight series.
I love shabby chic color combinations (pink,white, beige,turquoise), although with that said I love bright saturated colors as well like blues, greens, turquoise and purple. I am also keen on monochromatic color schemes when different shades of one color are used, and am really not picky about color at all actually, i love it! Black and white is chic as well.
Things I love: birds, bird cages, bird nests, sheep, paris,eiffel tower,1920's, 1950's, skeleton keys, black and white photography, day of the dead stuff like sugar skulls,frida, romance, quotes, texture, tiny details, landscapes, ocean, mermaids, hawaii, whimsical drawings, caligraphy, architecture, peeling paint, trees, abstract art, old written notes, stamps, perfume bottles, postcards, vintage, glass glitter, shabby chic, zetti style, steampunk style, portraits, watercolor.
I love the fact that there are other crafty/arty people out there like me who get excited about making and receiving handmade things. It is nice to know I am not the only one who enjoys spending hours at a table cutting, stamping, painting, gluing, and drawing etc. I love sharing my passion for art with others.
My favorite band is called deathcabforcutie and my favorite song by them is called I will follow you into the dark. Other favorites include Sam Roberts, Bob Dylan, and some country and pop.
I always put a lot of effort into my art and love the idea that I get to share it with people all over the world. Looking forwards to swapping with you. :)
