I am a part time artist and crafter. My favorite mediums are photography and mixed media. I love sharing creations with others and discovering other's talents. I am 32 y.o. and live in Frederick, MD with my husband, 2 cats, a corn snake, some fish, and 3 guinea pigs.
I love photography, but enjoy a wide variey of crafts. Lately I have been making little magnet sets. They are great for my short attention span! I love mixed media. I do a lot of work combining photography, printmaking, and painting techniques.I also dabble in sewing.
I mostly read non-fiction, but enjoy reading good literature when I have time to complete a novel.
Other than art and crafts,I love to cook, garden, and travel.
I am not too picky when it comes to swapping. I like a wide variety of curiosities. Here are some that come to mind
~ anything photography related ~ tea ~ local honey ~ locally made spices, jams, jellies, etc. ~ coffee ~ recipes ~ odd news articles ~ books (no romance, action, horror, or popular trade books) ~ origami paper ~ craft items for mixed media ~ pens, notecards, etc. ~ journals, blank books ~ art
Currently, I am not engaged in the following crafts
~ jewelry ~ knitting/crochet ~ children's crafts
I mostly watch channels such as Discovery, Nat Geo, Food Network, History Channel, etc. I have no idea what is even on the 4 network channels. I am an avid football and sports fan (other than basketball).
I like a wide variety of music, however, I do not like much rap or country other than Johnny Cash. Well, actually, I do like older country, not the new "poppy" sounding country. Some of my favorite genres include Indie, Punk, Rockabilly, Alt-country, Experimental. Some of my favs being Cat Power, Neko Case, Max Richter, Hillbilly Hellcats, Nekromantix, Radiohead, Dead Confederate, Exploited. I love Blues especially John Lee Hooker and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Some other musicians I like include Nina Simone, Tori Amos, Dropkick Murphys, Dead Kennedys, Amos Lee, Joy Division, Sonic Youth. I can go on and on!
