Favorite Crafts

I Like to draw and consider myself to be an "advanced doodler". I love to draw animals, plants, robots, crazy faces, aliens, abstract color/pattern studies or any old thing that strikes my fancy.Almost everything you get from me will be hand drawn. I love B&W clip art style ephemera and Dover books. My favorite color is orange. I love making ATCs and matchboxes!

Favorite Movies

My favorite movie of all time is Bottle Rocket. So subtle and hilarious. I love Kung-Fu movies and RomComs. No horror movies, but I do love a good creature feature, like Deep Blue Sea, Anaconda and Lake Placid. I love SHARKS and am super excited about Shark Week!

Favorite Music

I love old funk and R&B, like The Brothers Johnson, Bootsy Collins and The Bar-Kays.I love Bowie and T-Rex. I love 90's rap and hip-hop. I also love surf guitar. I like modern artists also, like Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, MGMT, and CSS. Basically, I'll give most music a chance except for super twangy country.

Favorite Books

I read all the time! I am an avid reader. I read everything, from trashy novels to Russian classics. Bring on the recommendations! I will be happy to give you some of my favorites if you are looking for something to read, but there are too many to list here. :)

What I'm in to right now...

I am obsessed with thrift and consignment stores, estate sales and auctions! I just bought my first house and am having the time of my life slowly re-doing everything. I am a foody and love the farmer's market.

I am going back and tracking the origins and destinations of my swaps. WE did a quick ATC swap back in '11. If you don't mind, could you share your city/state? Thanks so much.
