About Me

Hi my name is Lori. I am a NewYorker by birth and a Texan by choice. My husband & I moved to Texas back in 1981 right after graduating college and never thought we’d still be here!! But we love it!!

I’m trying to start displaying my swaps on Instagram Artsylori2023

MUSIC: My Favorite music is Country & Classic Rock.

BOOKS: I love to read in my spare time. I find it very relaxing to get lost in a book. Mostly Romance with some mystery are preferred. Some of my favorite authors right now are: Colleen Hoover, Susan Mallery, Nicholas Sparks, Taylor Jenkins Reid, Jodi Piccoult, Kristin Hannah, and Ruth Ware to name a few. Since starting swap-bot and spending more time in my art room I listen to audio books while I do art rather than read print books.

TRAVEL: I love to travel with my husband & grown children when they are available. I love learning about other cultures in the USA as well as going further to foreign countries. We frequent the Bahamas a lot. Anywhere in the Caribbean is a plus. We also travel to a National Park at least once a year. We take turns on which member of the family gets to choose the park for the following year!! We have been to Europe several times also. But I do believe there is still so much beauty in the US to see!

CRAFTS: As far as crafting goes I love just about any crafts. My favorite is Cardmaking, bookmaking and creating Art Journals. Since joining Swap-bot I have made a lot of post cards, ATC’s & APC’s. I love all of these also. Basically Papercrafting & things that can be made with it. I’ve also made homemade paper. I’m a big recycler and like repurposing whatever I can in my crafting. I can stay in my Art Room for hours and just lose track of time. I am not afraid to try just about any craft and have done many over the years.

FAVORITES: *I don’t really have a favorite color but do like bright colors rather than pastels. I also like Fall colors. The combination of black & white is pleasing to my eye in both photos & paper crafts. * I have recently started liking vintage things & ephemera. I’d like to start using it more & seeing what other people do with it. I have a lot of it but don’t use it as much as I should. * I love collages and mixed media art as well as when done in crafts.
* Stamping & Stickers of- Dragonflies-they are such interesting insects!! Ladybugs Bumble Bees Sea Turtles Starfish Llamas Sun & Moon Coffee & Tea Fairies Nature * Contemporary, modern, geometric things * I always prefer homemade rather than store bought.

DISLIKES: I am pretty easy going and can’t think of many dislikes right now. I may edit that at some point!! LOL!! Hopefully I won’t offend anyone!!

*kawaii *anime *I don’t love cats but cat art is okay. *Glitter *sequins that will fall off art *Although I like using ribbon please don’t send any because I have so much of it. Unless it’s lace, I don’t have any of that. *Crocheted, knitted, or yarn art. *I have plenty of paper so unless it is very unique I don’t need any. *Please do not send food items

I am looking forward to being a member of Swap-bot.❤️

Comment: LOL, your sticky is one I've written also, sealing up the envie only to look down and see I forgot to include the note inside. Wow, this PC almost looks completed, so I'll have to dig deep (pun intended) to add to the ocean theme. Your memaid is perfect addition. Thanks for the mail art envie and little tuck ins! xxMuggleMom
Response: I know what you mean Toni about this PC looking complete!! I actually looked for a smaller mermaid. I had trouble deciding what to add. I can’t believe how quickly you received it!! I mailed it May 30th. Some mail takes so long & others so quick!! Thanks for the rating!!
