About Me

NOTE: getting back into ATCs and swaps! I’m going to redo my profile soon.

I am trading in a few ATC groups on Facebook. I make art to sell over the Internet and at local events in Arizona. It's fun rummaging for art supplies at thrift shops. In addition to art, my background is in biology and writing.

I love horses, especially Appaloosas. My Breyer model horse collection began when I was just a child. Most of the Breyers I buy these days are scuffed up broken ones from Goodwill. 🐴

I am CRAZY about BIRDS! I used to have cockatiels and finches (society, zebra, Java). I specialize in caring for unwanted or disabled birds. CHICKENS are my main love though. 🐓 Yes, I am a crazy chicken lady! Started incubating recently, and there is nothing cuter than baby chicks running around the house.🐣🐥

I am currently looking for BIRD and CHICKEN ATCs.

Favorite Video Games

My favorite video game is Okami. It is just so beautiful! I played World of Warcraft for a few years. No time for it now. Same for Minecraft. I loved Dragon Quest VIII, Animal Crossing, Dark Cloud, and Runes of Magic, too.

Favorite Books

I have a LOT of spiritual books. Some of my favorite authors are James van Praagh and Caroline Myss. I incorporate book illustrations into some of my ATCs. I collect oracle and tarot decks that focus on animals and use incomplete decks for art projects.

Favorite Movies

Confession....I like romantic comedies. Sci-fi too! One of my favorites is While You Were Sleeping. We just saw Arrival twice. Very well done. If you like Sci-fi and haven't seen Coherence, watch it!!!! We call it the glow stick movie. It is awesome. I loooove Blue from Rio (blue parrot movie) and the chicken from Moana. I'm a fan of the original Star Wars movies and enjoy Harry Potter even though I didn't read the books. Also a fan of Deadpool and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Favorite Television

Favorite shows include Squid Game, The Magicians, Dark Matter, Firefly, Stranger Things, Rick and Morty, Doctor Who, What We Do in the Shadows, Wednesday, Alone, Naked and Afraid, Only Murders in the Building, and One Piece. I like zombie shows and Korean dramas on Netflix. My favorite Korean dramas are Crash Landing on You and Hometown Cha Cha Cha. Gudetama is fun little cartoon, too.

I love 80s music, Queen, Michael Jackson, the Beatles and electroswing music. 📀

Favorite Crafts

In terms of papercrafting, I'm hooked on ATCs right now! I’ve traded Deco books and pocket letters. I just learned how to make matchbox style treat boxes. How fun!

I've been selling my other artwork for a few years. I make a lot of spiritual/nature inspired pieces: Dreamcatchers, rattles, medicine pouches, etc. I also do flatwork and LOVE Prismacolor pencils and Sharpie pens.

donetta rated for TIMs: Whatever Betwinchies (1:2) on Mar 20, 2024
Comment: Oh Keri, these are just lovely! We share a love of the chicken world, so anything chicken-related is hit with me! And the beautiful doily betwinchie, in such a small format, is fabulous...and I think I see a chicken behind the doily, which forms a beautiful kind of fencing, like lacy chicken wire! Good job, you!
Comment: You're so sweet, oh my goodness! I LOVE this card you picked out (my housemate watched me open it and went, "Ohh, it's a Frumpkin!"), and ALL of the things you included. The sparkly enderman! The kitty stationary! The little game boy! ✨ It's all so wonderful! And, ooo, I haven't heard of either of those games, but I might check out Empires and Puzzles. It looks like my jam. 👀 I've been playing Balatro and Gems of War, lately, myself. 💜 Thank you SO so much for this wonderful birthday gift! And thank you for joining the swap!!

Ahhhh... Ty for the special pkg. Natalie loves the bee slide, I'm jelly bc I kinda wanted to Keep it ;) I didn't open the little page yet, I'll put it in my stocking so I can open it in the morning! You have no idea how inspiring it is when I receive messages like yours, we are 5 1/2 years into our journey and we are getting ready for our 2nd IVF procedure in January! Your parents have to be some pretty amazing people to go through the journey for 9 years - I've said this for so many years but now it feels closer than ever... I really feel like 2024 will be our year! Wishing you all of the happiest over the Holidays and in the new year to come!
