About Me

I'm an avid craft-a-holic, or so I'm told. I'll try most crafts at least once, and hang on to the ones I really enjoy. I love journaling, mail art, reading, cooking, and just about every kind of fiber and fabric art. I'm starting to experiment more with drawing, painting and mixed media and I'm really enjoying that too! I'm also learning to play the piano.


Favorite themes

  • dragonflies
  • Winnie the Pooh
  • fantasy
  • mythology & folklore (especially Scandinavian, British, or Welsh themed, but all are awesome)
  • spirituality in general
  • plants & flowers (abstract or realistic)
  • druid or pagan spirituality
  • witchy aesthetic
  • Disney
  • Super heroes (preference to women or PoC heroes)
  • Abstract and macro photography
  • Rainbows
  • LGBTQI+ positive stuff

Music

Music varies with my mood ... anything from folk, to soft rock to country. Hard Rock, Rap and techno are generally not on my 'listen to' list, but there are definate exceptions to that!

  • ABBA
  • The Beatles
  • Peter Hollens
  • Acoustic folk music
  • Acapella folk music
  • Musical soundtracks
  • S.J. Tucker
  • Damh the Bard
  • Hamilton Musical

Movies

I like movies and TV Shows that are fun and entertaining. Movies especially are an escape are an escape.

  • The Hobbit / Lord of the Rings
  • Black Panther
  • Wonder Woman
  • Antman
  • All the Marvel movies

TV Shows

  • Dr Who (all generations. Tom Baker, Matt Smith, and Jodie Whittaker are my favorite doctors)
  • Mythbusters (Build team all the way!)
  • How it's made
  • British Bake Off / Great Canadian Baking Show
  • Nailed it
  • Murdoch Mysteries
  • Hilda
  • Next in Style
  • Queer Eye

Current crafty interests

  • Crochet

  • spinning yarn
  • digital illustration
  • journaling
  • Mixed Media Art

Stuff I like to get

  • ATCs of any kind - digital, mixed media, drawn, painted, collaged, whatever
  • Stuff for making mixed media art
  • Journals & journaling supplies (usually A5 size or slightly smaller)
  • Hand made journals
  • bookmarks
  • Washi & journaling stickers in the themes above
  • napkins
  • coasters
  • bags (especially project bags for yarn crafts)
  • fabric for quilting (scraps are cool as long as they are at least 2" or 10cm square-ish)
  • mug cosy or mug rugs
  • sheet music
  • knitting and/or crochet supplies (nothing scratchy, but all sizes of yarn are appreciated)
  • stitch markers in general colors or above themes
  • something from your homeland or culture that I can use regularly
  • bowls (small ones for serving toppings are great too!)

My preference is for things that are useful, but I also love physical mail.


Stuff I don't want

  • Lavender (I'm allergic)
  • Acrylic yarns (acrylic blends are okay as long as they are soft)

Comment: Beautiful Black Eyed Susan's! Great shot 🙂 Thank You! I love it 🌻 that must have been a really great walk. Thank you for the extras...I know they will come in handy! Good luck with your move... I lived in Okinawa Japan for 4 years. Neither the apartment nor the base housing would have had enough room for all my craft stuff, and me!! Luckily, I hadn't started stamping then...that's where I learned to stamp for the very first time. 😀 I will pray for a safe move for you. 🙏

Comment: What a MARVELOUS envelope full of goodies! The mixed media flower is so vibrant and colorful. The Trinidad card is special because of the personal connection to the country. And the die-cut hanging flower pot and plant is so beautifully-crafted. I especially appreciate that you took time to tell me about the processes you used to create the art. And the wonderful stickers and digital art.... wow! I wish I could give TWO stars. You really went all out for this swap and I thank you SO much!!!
Response: I'm glad you like it! I had a lot of fun making the ATCs

Hello, I have a question for you please. I am a Christian but am also open to spiritual, individual, lgbtq, earth views, coexist type of lifestyles. My son and his wife and my niece and her husband are pagan. I love to send and receive things from them and look for things to send them regularly from my travels. Would you consider me for your swaps? Blessings! Deanna
