Something New

February 17, 2018

I found a place for all my pens, etc. I bought the 10 drawer storage unit from Michael's ages ago, and finally put it together! I have all my gelato's, Big Brush markers, gel pens, watercolours, Copics (put back into their boxes), etc separated into the drawers; how nice it is to not have to paw through deep drawers looking for something.

I'm thinking of buying another one of those storage units (they're on sale at Michael's again this week - half price), to use to separate all my pictures, magazine cut-outs, and bits and pieces that people send as extra's.

But, I do have a filing cabinet that I might dig out from under things and move into the craft room. Then, I could file everything into folders, and I HAVE already started to do that, mmm ... so much to do. ;)

February 11, 2018

I promised Axel he could come down to my craft room on his next Friday visit (he comes every Friday). So, I've been downstairs today, trying to clear off a table for him.

Luckily, I have another day or two....

I've gone through my stash of writing utensils - pens, pencils/colouring pencils, Sharpies, and all the other stuff I forgot I had. Now that they've been separated, where do I put them? :)

February 4, 2018

Please be patient with mail! Even between Canada and the States, mail can take over a month. I had one swap take 39 days to get to me from the States, and now a swap of mine took 40 days to get to my partner there - the same day I resent (naturally)! lol

January 23, 2018

Rachel has answered my pm's and my unfairly received 3 is off my rating - I'm very relieved not to see that anymore!

November 6, 2017

My husband supports my "habit" on SB and saves tidbits for me to see; these are interesting, so I thought I would share them:

In 1869, the first postcards were printed and put on sale by the Austrian government.

In 1840 Penny Black was the first adhesive postage stamp used in a public postal system - this was on a UK postcard I got. I had no idea that's where Penny Black (clear stamps, etc) got their name from!


October 14, 2017

My mom died on Oct 12. It was fast that day, albeit several months with her trapped in a wheelchair and not being able to communicate. She's with dad and my sister, I hope.

December 2016

All my baby grandsons!

Axel 3.5, Logan 1, Gray 3.5 mos

December 11/26, 2016

The updates on my profile show both the date AND year, which is a bonus everybody likes. Wish everyone would do this.

Please - update your profile, especially if you join profile-based swaps. I sometimes wonder - are you/your husband/kids still sick? Have you moved? How's the new job going? etc etc. :)

Most of the statements on my profile are from the early days of SB (November 29, 2008), which many SB'ers will know.

November 6, 2016

The memorial was fantastic! My sister lived a life most would be envious of. She volunteered, she hiked, she led artsy workshops, she danced in the streets wearing ridiculous outfits and participated in pillow fights! She influenced people and was loved by many. I wish I'd known her better.

October 18, 2016

I want to thank everyone who have sent me their condolences for my sisters disappearance, and presumed death, on a hike in Vancouver, BC (Debbie Blair, September 29, 2016).

She was a free spirit.

September 6, 2016

Axel (3 yrs), Logan (9 mos) and me

September 3, 2016

My third grandson was born August 28, 2016. His name is Gray - another cutie! 20 inches, 7 lbs 6 oz.

December 4, 2015

My new baby grandson, Logan. Born at 12:27 pm on December 4, 2015, weighing 6 lbs 13 oz and 19" long. He's another keeper!

June 2, 2013

My first grandchild has arrived! Axel was born at 1:01 am on June 2, weighing 6.6 pounds. He's 19.5 inches long, and is cute as a button. We're going to have lots of fun.

=====================================

Fave Books/Music

Books:

Children's:

"INDESTRUCTIBLES" are great books for the first time reader - they're chew proof, rip proof, nontoxic and 100% washable! The pictures are great - big and bright and artsy! Yes, photocopy them and use them.

I love Amelia Bedelia! I read her for my OWN pleasure.

One of my favourites (and my kids faves) were the series of A-Z animals by Sweet Pickles, written by Jacquelyn Reinach and/or Richard Hefter who illustrated them. Totally vintage books from the '70's. Wish I still had them.

I did read The Bobbsey Twins when I was younger, but was an avid reader and graduated to the older books fairly quickly. Read Oliver Twist when in grade 4, after the teacher finished reading it to the class!

Of course, Dr. Seuss and all the "regular" kids books are great to read. I love to pick up educational ones, like "The Scoop on Poop" :)

Adult:

Recently read the book, "The Humans" by Matt Haig - I LOL'd several times, so had to read a passage or two out loud to my husband - there were also serious insights about the human race, Stephen King (most of them but to me Salem's Lot was the scariest book I've ever read), Robert McCammon (Swan Song - a long story, but I didn't want it to end), Dean Koontz (Watchers - my first Dean Koontz and it got me to read them all; I even read it again), Jodi Picoult (just started her books - kind of whiney but that's the way people are these days), and others.

I like to read, so I read a lot, but I read so fast that I can't remember the books I do read - have you ever started a book, and know that you've HAVE read it, but you don't know what's going to happen, so you just continue to the end? Well, I've done that. More than once.

The Chrysalids (also called Rebirth), by John Wyndham is one of the best - read that one a lot of times. When I was younger I loved the Outsiders, by SE Hinton.

And, to age myself, before that - Trixie Beldon - The Gatehouse Mystery. I must have read that one seven times!

I don't like most movies made from books, and I'd rather read the book, but I was glad I saw the movie, The Godfather, before reading it. Most of Stephen King's books are slaughtered when made into movies. I actually thought that Needful Things would make a great movie, but... Ahem, it wasn't, LOL.

Music:

I love the blues and, what I think is called, "alternative" music. I like rock, easy listening, and swing (think "In the Mood" by Glen Miller), too - I listen to a station you can log onto on the web: CKUA.com (Friday nights from 9 pm and Saturday from 3-5 pm they play the blues - Sunday AM they play swing). But, the station plays everything, and it's listener sponsored, so you don't hear ads. I hear music played by people I've never heard of and I LOVE (most of) their styles. Try it out.

I don't like classical, jazz or rap, so I do have to change the station sometimes :).

James Blunt, Ruthie Foster, Natalie Merchant, Molly Brown, Corey Hart, Huey Lewis, Uriah Heep, Dave Mathews, Los Lobos, Stampeders...

Favorite Movies

I don't see a lot of movies anymore. I did when I was younger - living on an Air Force base in Germany, I went to a movie every Saturday with my 25 cent allowance. A movie and a bag of fries is what that bought. Hayley Mills was one of my favourites back then - The Truth About Spring, The Moonspinners, etc.

Favorite Television

I like quirky comedy. There isn't a lot on TV anymore. I tend to rent DVDs from the library. Mrs. Brown's Boys is hilarious; I've been watching Blackish and it's funny :)

We've watched the Game of Thrones; now, in the break, I've started to read the books. Another time I'm happy to have seen the movie first - I'd never be able to follow the names if I couldn't picture them from the movie.

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking ruled once upon a time (I actually finished an album), but because card-making is so fast, I finish them more often than any of the albums I dream of having someday (there's no way I can give anybody a "store bought" card anymore)!

I tend to collect patterns of different crafts to do. My computer is full of patterns, and so is my filing cabinet :) I can't stop. When I clean up, I just organize better - I seldom throw anything away.

Since discovering Swap-bot Nov/08, ATCs rule these days! I spend so much time making these little gems, that everything else has been put on the back burner!

As with many of you, I could hold a class and supply everyone with everything they'd need and not miss any of it. Not that I could hold the class IN the craft room. This is not good, but then again, it is. Michael's must miss me these days.

About Me

I met my husband in 1992 and we married exactly 5 years later. We have a few children between us, all of them grown now.

I'm a camper - my husband and I have an acre sized campsite about an hour and a half away from the city and visit it every weekend if the weather allows. My parents had a place there before us, and that's where we got married.

I would love to have an acreage. Have always dreamed of living on a farm.

I'm an Air Force brat, so travel is in my blood - plan to see more of this planet. When we lived in Germany, mom and dad took us camping all over Europe - lucky me.

Have always had an interest in photography - my husband bought me a great camera so one of my retirement plans is to really USE it.

July 5, 2011 - last day of my "real" job. Husband retired 2013 and we're content to putter around at home, or the campsite. How did we find the time to do things when we worked??

DENTAL IMPLANTS

2012

Please, if you're considering dental implants and going to Costa Rica to have it done, DON'T go to Prisma (with the big red lips). There are quite a few good doctors - research, research, research. I went on the word of a friends cousin, who had permanent implants put in. I haven't heard lately how her teeth are.

To hear the whole story, pm me.

Laser Surgery

If you can, do it BEFORE needing reading glasses. I can tell you now - you have to have glasses with you all the time, or at least accessible (in the car, in the bathroom, by the computer, in the kitchen, by your crafts, at the store), etc, etc, etc. And it's easy to forget to carry them around with you. They're always on the top of my head. It's a pain in the butt, but great to be able to walk in the rain :)

Likes & Dislikes

LIKES:

I like bright colours - red, yellow, and the different kinds of blue there are.

I like having little kids around, teaching them to cook or do crafts - expand their world. With babies, the first thing I do is have them touch something - usually a plant.

Love the vintage look; things that are old. Things from old books, old tickets, pictures. I like sorcerer pics, dark, mystical visions. Love the steampunk look!

The following likes could be for anything to do with rub-ons, stamps, die-cuts, etc. I really like rub-ons.

I like: faux stitching, doodles, trees, wild animals & bugs, birds, ocean stuff, travel, nature, ducks (the real ones, not the rubber ducky ones), horses, grass, lighthouses, fairies, mushrooms, dinosaurs. dragons, pin-ups, tasteful nudes. I'd love to get some decent punch-outs or die-cuts - unusual ones, not hearts and squares (who doesn't have those?)

If somebody wants to trade some punch-outs or die-cuts with me I have a cool carousal (horse) punch, and others (wings) - I can send a list of what I have. Just pm me.

Feb 25/17 - Since this was written, I have a ton more die-cuts to share!

I like pictures that could be incorporated into an ATC - kind of off the wall, or macabre, quirky, not cutsey. Dragons, mermaids, Boris type art.

I like Native art, and love African masks.

I'd really like it if you wrote a bit about what you're sending me - why you like it and what you'd like me to know about it. Or even just something about yourself!

I don't wear jewellry, but I'd like to get "parts" that I could use - I'm getting into Steampunk art.

I love "Classic 45" scrapbooking paper, Zetti, the grunge look, Tim Holtz.

If you're from another country (besides the U.S.), I'd love it if you'd send me a coin or two from where you live. Or a postcard (especially a map card), or a postage stamp (used is fine), or anything else different from what I'm used to seeing here.

DISLIKES:

PINK, PINK, PINK

I don't like any kind of pink, bright or otherwise, and don't like pastel colours. I still remember, as a child, my bedroom walls painted a pale green!

Disney, cutsie, lots of small anything, pet things, stuff for kids (mine are grown), wedding items, stickers with sayings on them, religious themes. Crayon drawings of "cute" things. I'm way too old to appreciate them - I'll give them to the young folk in the family :)

I don't need stickers - don't use the ones I have, so please don't send any. I don't like too much glitter, but I use Wink of Stella. I don't like stickers on the art you send me. Unless it's so nice, you can hardly tell it's a sticker! You know what I mean.

If you're sending me a recipe (food or drink), I don't like coffee, coconut, tequila or scotch. I'm not an adventurous person with many types of seafood (oysters, sardines & mussels), though I like fish and large shrimp.

POSTCARDS

January 29/18

I've just learned about maxi-cards! I thought it was just big postcards, but they're the ones with a corresponding stamp on the front of then postcard (not a real stamp, but a picture of one). Apparently, Australia issued a postcard with each new stamp they bring out - please send me one, if you can (blank and in an envelope, please).

November 4/13

I seem to really be interested in postcards lately!

I've been fortunate to receive some nice ones (that I can't ever find - in stores, anyway). The only ones I had were the touristy ones that I bought when away from my city.

So, PREFERENCES:

Store bought pc's: I'd like mine sent blank/unwritten on, in an envelope, if it's allowed in the swap (or even if it isn't).

I'm not going to join many "naked and stamped" postcard swaps - I like to send some of 'em on when needed (themed swaps, more than one in an envelope, etc). I keep lots, just cause I like them so much.

I like lots of things, but anything "different" would be great.

If you sent the following, you'd be just fine:

map cards, map cards, map cards!! If you have any Canadian map cards, I'd love them. I'm also trying to collect all the US states, too (would love some from Hawaii / Alaska, but I also need others, especially from the east and south of this world).

steampunk, retro ads, nudes, naughty, fairies, dinosaurs, sci-fi, fantasy, monsters, old comics, movie posters, some movie stars, space (stars), water (rivers, waterfalls, lakes, ocean - I love water), lighthouses, tropical (palm trees, beaches), ships (rocket, sailing, etc), muscle cars (I used to have a 1972 Challenger - I rue the day I sold it), aboriginal scenes/portraits (from any country), art, bright and colourful (NO PINK or PASTEL for me) and I've never seen a Christmas postcard (I have some of these now - cool, and thanks)!

I don't much care for touristy ones (but LOVE map cards). If you send a touristy one, I'd prefer it to have multiple scenes). I'd love to get ones from someplace other than North America (except Hawaii and Alaska; don't have many of them) - Africa, South America, China, Russia, Scotland, Ireland, the UK, Spain, Italy, etc etc.

No kittens, puppies or cute things, unless it's a human baby. I do like horses. Not crazy about vintage, unless it's something to do with the above likes. I don't like them just because they're old. I was recently sent a vintage pc of a Hula dancer - that was fine.

Homemade postcards: I like to store them in photo albums, so please (if you can), keep them 4 x 6" so they'll fit (10 x 15 cm). These can be sent naked OR in an envelope.

RATING

December 11, 2016

I always rate and I don't flake. If I ever do, I'll take this statement off.

Because, why would I want to earn that 3, or (shudder) 1?

If you get my swap, I'd appreciate a rating. If you didn't, please let me know so I can fix the problem. After a month or so, I will pm/email if I haven't been rated to see if my item made it to your house, but I shouldn't have to.

Dec 11/16 - I care that you don't want me to bother you to see if you forgot to rate me, but I care more about getting my ratings, so I will be contacting you. Hope you read profiles like I do.

Postal workers in Canada don't work on weekends, so if the send date is a Saturday/Sunday, they won't be postmarked until Monday. I try to have it done before the w/e in those cases. I always give extra time for things - especially overseas, before rating (and will check before giving a 1 or 3). Even crossing the Canada/US border seems to take forever sometimes.

I will sometimes put something in the closest mailbox and hit "sent" that day, but it won't be picked up until the next p/u day. I don't worry about it, if it isn't due. If it's DUE to go out that day, I take it to the post office, so the stamp will have the correct date on it.

I don't automatically give a heart because of extra's. Except for postcard swaps - if you've given me an extra one, from my profile likes, on top of sending me great cards, then why wouldn't you deserve a heart?

If something makes me say "wow", you'll get a heart. Even if it has pink in it, you might still get a heart, but you'll know it's your art that got it for you. Hope you'll do the same for me.

October 16, 2017

If I send you something and the glue (or anything else) hasn't done its job, please tell me!

I've learnt recently that I was given a heart for a swap where the backing had fallen off the ATC - of course, I thought everything was fine. Then, much later, I was told my work was "subpar".

How can I fix things if I'm given a heart for something that wasn't considered "up to par"?

I want a heart if it's extra special for you - that's why Swap-bot introduced them; what they're for. If you think my swap is "subpar", please let me know, so I can fix it.

Comment: I can't for the love of God understand why you would waste my time with a letter as long as an painful year, and the swap cards..... is that all you could come up with? You suck! This is the first time I got a letter this long, and now my husband think I am crazy after making sounds when reading it. What you wrote on the swap card I would never dream using in a normal swap or say to someone in real life. Yes I am that pussy, and you inappropriate and dark in the card just the way you where supose to. By the way I had 3 bastards, and been a real bitch and got them with 2 diferent strays
Response: OMG; my ears are flaming, I'm so embarrassed by your comment, I don't know how to respond, except with grateful thanks, lol. I'm glad you made crazy sounds reading my note. As for the heart, beyotch - I deserve it, and you rock!

Comment: Thanks for the lovely selection of cards & for hosting another fun swap. I actually saw that Frida Kahlo painting at a wonderful exhibit of her paintings at the Dali Museum in St Petersburg (FL) about a year ago. It is indeed a scene ON a bus, the same as the one she was on 4 years earlier in which the accident occurred that changed her life forever. Love the Gorey, of course, & I too love the colors and designs in the Ghana beach girl. Thanks for the sweet extra and for your notes and commentary!
Response: That would have been a great exhibit to see! Thanks for letting me know that it WAS a bus the people were on. It must have been painful for her to paint it. Thanks for commenting so nicely and of course for the great rating :)

Comment: Your tag arrived yesterday and I had to laughe because mine looks pretty similar. I also made a snow hill but mine is used by kids with a sled. :) Your tags looks great. I love the background and the fact that it not only looks like leather - it also feels like leather! Thank you so much! Your letter was heart warming. I have to say... I had two ugly days and was a bit down and your letter was like balm for the soul! Thanks for that! And for the extras! The papers are perfect for some autumn crafts.... :D
Response: Your comment has made me feel pretty happy, too! I'm glad I was able to cheer you up, and I'm happy you like the tag I sent. Thanks for the heart!

Oh hi Sandra! Today I received your RAK of paper stuff destash. I really like it a lot! So many funny bits and bobs, they will surely be used. You really know how to make a paper crafter smile! 🐼🐸 Thank you dear. Greetz, Cindy

Thank you for the Gorey Creatures (and extra!) for the PH: forum PC tag. Love 'em, every one, but those amazing "insectes cyclistes" keep calling me for another look!

RAK of paper stuff - Thanks so much for the paper items. I will be able to use much of it for card making, etc.

I totally love The Bloggess! Her second book (Furiously Happy) seriously makes me laugh so hard I almost pee myself!

I will have to check out the Swan Song. It sounds familiar so I wonder if my DH has read it...
