About Me

I'LL BE ON SWAP-BOT HIATUS, FOLKS.

As much as I wanted to join so many cool swaps in my groups, I don't have the time to commit to swapping. I thought it best to go on leave rather than find myself in over my head. I hope to be back soon. Thank you so much for the wonderful swaps I've received and most importantly for the swap partners I've met in the past year. You've helped me a lot in my grief journey.

(P.S. I realized I accidentally deleted most of my profile. ARGHHHHH!!! I should have previewed this message first. :( Anyway, I'll put it together again when I get a chance. I'll still be logging on here from time to time to check messages and check group updates I'm a member of. Peace!

Quick list of what I like:

Papercraft - cards, ATCs, tags, mini-books. Art - acrylic & watercolor painting, mixed media, altered art, assemblage, collage, street art, book art, eco art. Anything letterpress. Interesting found objects. Needle felting and pocket stuffies. Art-o-mats. Brass metal charms. Photographs - digital and film. Lomography. Art postcards. Vintage ephemera - old paper, charms, lace, photos, fabric, amber bottles. Zines and mail art. Steampunkery. Handmade jewelry. Things made out of polymer clay.

Interests:

(^_~)

Books I like:

I'm a fan of JRR Tolkien and his Lord of the Rings books. Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials Trilogy. C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia. I also like Ray Bradbury, Roger Zelazny and Neil Gaiman. I read Umberto Eco, Italo Calvino and Salman Rushdie's works. I love women writers: Virginia Woolf, Maxine Hong-Kingston, Sandra Cisneros, Ursula LeGuin, A.S. Byatt, Joan Didion, Erica Jong, Harper Lee, E. Annie Proulx, Jeanette Winterson. As for poetry, I love Pablo Neruda and e.e. cummings' works. Right now, I'm exploring Sylvia Plath's poetry. I also read non-fiction I like the works of humorist David Sedaris. His essays make me laugh and I could use some laughter these days.

Some BBC series: Dr. Who. Being Human, The Inbetweeners, Survivor, Top Gear. But nowadays I don't watch TV (thanks to Netflix streaming videos).

Music I listen to:

My interest in music is eclectic. I don't have a favorite genre of music. But if you strong-arm me, I'd say I like Queen, The Beatles, and Frank Sinatra. I've been known to sing along to Japanese pop music, The Carpenters and ABBA. But I love playing bass for Metallica, Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie and Lynyrd Skynyrd songs on Rock Band. I also listen to blues. Oh and I like music from certain musicals like Oliver!, My Fair Lady, Les Miserables, Wicked, Billy Elliot, Disney's Newsies, Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast. (I know I can be a closet Disney fangirl sometimes...;-) I like alternative and indie music. Barenaked Ladies, Gorillaz, Smashing Pumpkins, The Cure and The Police are all-time favorites and some 80s new wave.

Some Tim Burton movies: Bettlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow, Ed Wood, The Nightmare before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd. Some foreign films: A Clockwork Orange, Billy Elliot. La Dolce Vita, Luc Besson's Leon, Karakter, Antonia's Line, Amores Perros, Central do Brasil. David Lynch's Eraserhead. Fritz Lang's Metropolis.

Comment: LOVE my package of goodies! Wow! The 3D collage of "sugar" skulls was just fun. The colors & embellishments are fun. I'm sad I didn't get the 1st one... :-( If it ever surfaces I'll let you know!
Response: Yay! I was worried that the skulls might get crushed in transit but I'm glad they arrived safely to you. Thank you very much for your patience and for the five rating and the heart. :)

Comment: Got it! Love the photo and the atc, but I'm kinda jealous that you get to go to makerfaire. Atcs are about as close as I get to any real steampunk! TYVM also for the button an sticker. Kathy
Response: I'm glad it got to you safe! Check out the League of Steam, they sometimes go to places to bring steampunk to the masses. :) Thank you so much for your patience and for the five rating and a heart! :)

Response: Maker Faires are indeed awesome. It's a conglomeration of geeky, crafty, scientific, DIY things all rolled into one. Thanks a bunch for the five rating and a heart! :)

Comment: I love the domino charm you made for me! The design is so unique and I love that filmstrip you added, the lovely citrus colored beads and the face that looks like the golden sun. Your attention to detail is very appreciated. Also thank you so much for sending me the lovely felted heart! You are very good at that, I've not quite mastered getting mine so tight. What a bummer that your very first bottlecap charm got lost :( but like you say, maybe someday the postal ether may cough up a hairball and it will appear. haha. Also love your airmail note paper! This was a fantastic swap and I was thrilled to receive it. Thank you very much! Hope we can be partners again sometime.
Response: Woohoo!!! It got to you, I'm so relieved! I'm glad you liked the charm and the felted heart. I'm also just starting out on needlefelting. But I get to practice a lot since it's a great stress-reliever like I'm doing some voodoo thing to the sources of my stress. LOL. Thank you so much for your patience. Hope we can be partners again, too. :)

Comment: Wow! First..loved the bookmark. I am reading Last Train from Hiroshima, followed by The Stand..so it will definitely get tons of use. That was some creative Mailart,too :) Me and my hubby ate the pocky,was it dark chocolate? It was very good! I hope you ate the rest when you were putting the swap together..puts a smile on my face :) The teas you sent look delicious. Never tried any of those.
Response: Glad you liked the swap I sent! The Stand is a pretty thick paperback but it's engaging - still gives me goosebumps though when I recall some parts of it. (Not as bad as It though). That's the regular milk chocolate Pocky. And yup, I ate the rest. LOL. Thanks a bunch for the five rating and a heart! :)

Comment: Thank you so much for the mini zine on sanfran! That was so thoughtful of you and super helpful to me. The places you listed sound awesome; I'm definitely going to check out the cartoon art museum. And your painting was cool too. I'll have to google that artist some time soon. :)
Response: You're welcome. I hope it will prove handy. Yup, Cartoon Art Museum is a pretty cool place to visit in SF. Thanks a bunch for the five rating and a heart. :)

Comment: I'm giving Jennifer a heart not because her bird was so cute, but because she was super freaked out about the mail not getting to me when her post office closed and she went way above and beyond to check and make sure it was okay! Thanks!
Response: Aww thank you for the comment. Before I joined Swapbot, I couldn't care less about the mail or the post office, but now I get a bit stressed out when things go awry over there. (sigh) But I'm glad that the little bird got to you safely. Thanks a bunch for the five rating and the heart. :)

Hi

crescendo on Sep 30, 2011:

Haha, I totally cracked up on what you said about needle felting being a stress reliever for practicing voodoo on the "sources" for the stress. HAhaha, good thinking. I am off to relieve some stress now...wink.

Sorry to hear about you losing your son Kai. I lost my only son in 1985 and I still miss him.

So sorry about the loss of your cat. I saw your post in the forums. Our pets are so dear to our hearts, and your story moved me so. {{hugs}}
