About Me

Greetings and Welcome to My World!

I am 60 and I love to create, it's the only time my bipolar mind is at peace.

I am single with 3 cats, Willow, Honey and Shelby.

I live in Smyrna, GA USA and have lived in GA for over 40 years. I was born in Ashtabula, OH near Lake Erie, and I love beach stones and driftwood.

I am new to Swap-bot but not to swapping. I first found and joined Swap-bot in 2015 but never participated until April of this year.

My motto:

Stay Curious About Tomorrow

Hope Always

To remind me that even though today it seems senseless to go on, tomorrow things can change, so just hold on, one day at a time, one hour at a time, whatever it takes.

Feel free to adopt and share this phrase with others.

I am open about my life challenges with Bipolar2, depression and anxiety, and available to talk about it anytime. We have enough to deal with the stigma from the outside world without having to deal with our own inner battles of awareness

I can't seem to get the links section to work, so here are my pages, sorry you have to copy and paste them in.

I don't keep this Facebook page up much, but it gives you an idea of what I like to do

Favorite Crafts

My main art form is stone ware pottery, it is part of most every other creation that I do.

I like altered art, assemblage, mixed media collage, ATC's (mini collages!) handmade cards, and to stretch my abilities with different forms by doing artistic swaps

I am a member of a Facebook altered art swap group always looking for new members that want to be active participants, if you are interested message me

Some of the swaps I have participated in are, altered cigar box, ribbon doll, junk doll, altered blocks, dominos and jenga pieces, altered keys, and mason jars

My likes list

I love opening my mailbox to Happy Mail, all those envelopes with stickers and drawings and stamps, yummy!

Things I like: I collect angels, Goddesses, cats, fairies, crystals, beach stones & driftwood, small boxes, Kwan Yin, boxes with drawers, oh and cats (again)

Colors - jewel/peacock tones, earth tones, favorite color - purple (all shades), all colors with the exception of red

I like sparkly, cruelty-free, natural, gaia, metallics, textures, triangles, spirals, organic, talismans and amulets, symbology, Celtic, Egyptian

I don't draw, paint or sew, so I am especially appreciative of Artists who do and especially enjoy receiving these types of artwork

My personal passion and main creative outlet is Art Pottery, my favorite potter, George E Ohr, the Mad Potter of Biloxi

Dislikes

Themes I am not a fan of - beachy, skull/bones, scary, disney, too cutesy

Please no food items, no tea, coffee, cocoa, etc No leather, fur or feathers

No unhappy happy mail that smells like cigarettes, yucky

Comment: What a beautiful idea to send affirmation cards! I love the affirmations, and how you created them. Thank you so much!
Response: So happy you enjoyed therm. I am thinking of starting a series of affirmation related swaps, (cards, ATC's, PC's etc) we all need encouragement, inspiration and motivation in our life's journey

Comment: Thanks for sharing your creativity and kitty themed washi! I've been trying to determine what dimensional medium you used on the envelope. Very unique!
Response: I appreciate your curiosity especially with us both being cat people and all. I was playing with e6000 Allure product /http://eclecticproducts.com/products/allure-gloss-dimensional-design-adhesive-paint/ putting it on one side of the envelope and then putting another envelope on top, smooshing them around and pulling them apart. I also added some Dylusions apray on some of them. you can write to me directly for more info if you want
