Greetings to all swap-botters who might be reading my profile. I'm Tina, l live outside of Evansville, Indiana in the country, between "Boonville" and "Yankeetown". My Hubby, Jim, recently retired from the Postal service after 40 years of being a Letter Carrier. We live in a tiny house, but it's on a pretty little lake that more than makes up for the size of the house!
We have furry kids and furry grandkids :) also, two adult daughters who no longer live with us, so their bedrooms became a guest room and "a filled to the brim craft/sewing room". Now we make "dates" to craft and sew together :).
My style is VERY eclectic! My motto,"Every thing Old is New Again". My Girls say I'm an old hippy with bohemian flare. From what l've seen on line, They are right. If l need something new for my home 1st I look at resale stores, Goodwill,Salvation Army or garage sales. If there's not any thing that jumps out at me and says "Oh Please, take me home with you, You know we would all be happy together!" , then I reupholster what l have and sew new curtains. I LOVE to use the Vintage fabric my Mom and Grandma had stashed away, and BOY did they alot stashed away!
I also think I must have been a crow in a former life, because I LOVES ME THE SPARKLES !!! Prisms and sun-catchers that make rainbows dance around the house makes me soooo very happy!
My oldest daughter, Hannah, was showing me what she was doing on swap-bot, l thought how wonderful it would be to have a creative outlet and a direction. Plus I always get so excited when I get personal hand-written mail.
Pinterest is my obsession and an escape. To me it's like reading an endless magazine. I love reading New Blogs, websites & finding inspiration for new projects (not that I will ever find time to do them all).
Cooking for Family & Friends. Laughing with others. My Furry Friends ! Traveling &seeing new sites. Historical &/ or haunted places. The Ocean & collecting Sea shells. Camping & canoeing. Bright & cheery colors. eclectic bohemian . zen-doodles. bits of wisdom and quotes. handmade paper. Shiny/sparkly doodads/trinkets. Found feathers. FROGGIES ! carved wood. Pictures of Spiritual Icon from ANY faith! Making things with my hands, doesn't matter what. Coffee & Tea. International coins, ads, newspapers ,ect. FRINGE (both for sewing and the tv show). Scented candles (not floral ). Old photos, early color or black n white.
that Funky musty basement smell that can get on old things. Snarky mean people (life is to short)! Anchovies, sardines, or dried kipper! plastic puff stickers. Poorly done Art or Crafts as if one didn't care enough to do more than slap a sticker on it.
