Hi, my name is Dawn. I have a rubber stamp and paper addiction... I mostly like to make cards and paper dolls :) I do a bit of drawing and journaling, but that is newer for me.
I belong to a stamp club and an art club, and we had swaps, but we haven't met in months due to the pandemic... I also used to belong to a Paper Doll Swap group. I missed swapping! I have been in just a couple of swaps so far, and I am really enjoying Swap-bot!
I love fairy gardens and miniatures. Although my miniatures are store-bought, I do sometimes embellish them myself with moss, etc.
I can't sew, but am a seamstress wannabe! I love pretty fabrics and lace and old sewing supplies like needle books and buttons cards.
I enjoy receiving any type of handmade card/postcard/ATC/etc., but also appreciate store-bought cards with or without handwritten notes:) Always happy to receive snail mail of any kind!
I used to read a lot of mysteries and historical fiction, but lately really into fantasy and the re-telling of fairy tales :)
I usually watch old black and white movies, especially "film noire."
Downton Abbey for sure! Also, The Crown and Victoria... Anything with beautiful clothes and scenery :) And of course sitcoms are always good when you need a laugh :)
I work in a billing and collections office. My boyfriend and I have been together for over 20 years, no children.
I enjoy living where there are four seasons (although it seems our winters are getting milder), and am fortunate to have a park in our city that is really beautiful -- trees, lakes, a waterfall. I usually walk or do a very slow jog -- my running days are over LOL!
And I love animals! My boyfriend, my mother, and my sister and I all feed and/or take in stray cats >^..^<
I love coffee, tea, and chocolate :) I love to go to a coffee shop or bakery!
