About Me

I started making ACT’s 9 years ago but stopped. However, cleaning my craft space inspired me to try again. I’m in Alabama. I have two degrees and 1/2 way through a 2nd Masters.... My happy happy undergrad days were spent at Auburn University, where I ‘chased’ and caught my 3 time USA Olympic sprinter-Gold in ‘84 husband.

I begin college an art student, but ended up with an undergrad degree in Early Childhood. I received a Masters in Library Science and Technology from Uof Alabama. I am currently working on a second Masters in Social Work at Auburn University.

We have one daughter. She became our artsy one-an architect. She works for a large University and is currently remodeling her own 1950 mid century.

I own a 9 year old female boxer named Shug Jordan. I babysit my daughter’s rescue 120lb Lab, hound, something big and sweet mix, Charles Barkley.

Favorite Crafts

Altered anything; books, journals, old sofa paintings.. But for now just doing ACT's and trying the Journaling thing...though I have embellished and done this since my Fine Art Prof in Undergrad untroubled us to Art Journals. I used to hand piece and hand quilted in my teens and until I had my daughter. I had my grandmother ‘s quilting racks until my sister stole them from me! Once upon a time I did a lot of cross-stitch, I sewed a tiny bit. I was introduced to calligraphic / copperplate years ago in college and still dabble at it...but I had to paid someone to do our daughter’s wedding invitations so yea...while I have the tools I lack the skills. I am a huge fan of John Lynn Wilson..love his altered art! Google him. My best buddy is a very accomplished artist, mostly pottery currently but I own a couple of her beautiful paintings.

Favorite Music

Steely Dan Tom Petty Eagles Cold Play Civil Wars Imitation Dragons

Currently love listening to NPR pod-cast

Favorite Books

I am In grad school all I do is read-text and research papers...but as a librarian I have meet some great authors Rick Bragg, Pat Conroy, Fanny Flagg and I have a copy of To Kill A Mockingbird that was personality signed for me by Ms Harper Lee when I was in college...and she hated doing this kind of thing my charming brother arranged this treasure.

Favorite Television

Now I am in school not much TV but I like Handmaids Tale, Call the Mid-wives, Killing Eve-BBC, WestWorld, and Game of Thrones...but I read the books so not as devoted as I once was

Favorite Movies

My first childhood favorite movie -original Parent Trap Others... Princess Bride Gladiator Elf

one more thing....

I have attended Auburn Football and other sporting events since I was a child. My husband tells folks my family made him the AU fan he is today and he was runner up for SEC athlete of the year 1979. We grew up motorhome, season ticket holding true blue Tigers. So I love burn orange and navy blue, Tigers, Eagles and Olympic stuff...but we have lots of that stuff. I dislike Dollare Tree craft stuff, most stickers, not a fan of tea...we drink Sweet tea down here. I do not need old book pages...20 years of collecting vintage pages means I am good. Ribbon- I also have too much.
