About Me

Happy 2019! My quote for this year is "Don't let anyone steal your joy!"

Thank you to everyone who stops by my wall and leaves some holiday bling!! I appreciate you thinking of me.

Favorite Crafts

I have tried a lot of art and crafts in my life. While I am no expert I do have an eclectic style and appreciation of art in many forms. Handmade is always appreciated and treasured.

  • September 2018...We just got a Hobby Lobby in our area a few months ago! About time, lol!

  • My newest obsession are Julie Nutting Paper Dolls, I love them! I bought my first stamp in 2013 after a class and didn't do much with the dolls until 2015. I own almost the entire collection and met Julie herself in June 2016 at a retreat. So awesome! I hope to attend another class with her someday.

  • paper dolls, I love my dolls! Have on-going doll art journals; die cut dolls, stamped, magazine and paper cut outs, even clothes etc, made by you, stickers of dolls etc..

  • Tim Holtz and Graphic 45 products have became some of my favorites! I'm still learning how to use them and love Pinterest for inspiration.

  • I do love drawing, painting, sewing and quilting, (my Grandmother was an amazing quilter) collage, art and junk journals. I also enjoy inchies, ATCs, and small altered matchboxes. I like the different sized tiny and unique matchboxes I find sometimes at the most random places. Fun to collect!

  • Anything teensy and unusual, little boxes and I collect tins, miniatures; especially paper miniatures Just have a thang about tiny teeny things. hehe

  • Love die cuts and use them in my journals and collage

  • I enjoy "junkin'" for art junk /vintage treasures!

  • collecting ATCS since 2006. Have some beautiful art in my collection!

  • unusual and interesting papers of all kinds! 4x6" or larger

  • collage and fabric art

  • embroidery, cross stitch, needle felting, wool roving or wool fibers

  • most colors (except neon colors) but some of my favorites are blue, pink, purple, aqua, and autumn colors

  • love all animals! forest/woodland creatures, sea creatures, African animals, pets. I have two cats.

  • the sea and all it's many beauties

  • quilling and origami

  • interesting metal embellishments

  • hearts (collected since I was a teenager)

  • Halloween, Valentines Day and Christmas are my favorite holidays.

  • Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, Vintage Barbie, Katy Keene, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s Rock n Roll, Dance, Fairies, Butterflies, Birds, Nature, Retro, Quirky and Colorful, Skulls, Quotes and Poetry, Cats and Dogs, Zentangles, Humor, Repurposing and Recycling, Fashion (paper dolls or old magazine cut outs for my paper doll junk journal)

  • I love vintage ephemera!!! 1960's and earlier, vintage textiles, fabrics and scraps, sewing and hand stitching items, vintage magazines, cookbooks, children's books, readers and song books, old medical books, geography or encyclopedia pages, wallpaper and wrapping paper, vintage ads and pamphlets, sewing patterns from 1960s or earlier, vintage rhinestones and costume jewelry, old type written letters and documents, forms, envelopes or postcards,

*I love to sew and now have two Granddaughters I am sewing for. Not so much clothing anymore but now for their dolls! So much fun!

Favorite Television

My husband and I watch a lot of TV through the week in the evenings because it's the best way to relax together after our long days....Big Bang Theory, Survivor (since the beginning) NCIS (still watch the orginal with Gibbs) Use to love CSI (with Grissom) Firefly, Bones and Grimm. Sad to say some of my favorites are no more. Fave movies: Grease, Ghost, Dirty Dancing, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and Avatar. Old shows: I Love Lucy, That Girl, Gilligan's Island, Mork and Mindy, Welcome Back Kotter


Things I won't use or dislike...trying to keep it short as it should be, but I end up with too many of certain things!

*pencils, erasers, reward stickers

*scraps of paper

*blank recipe cards, packages of note cards or memo pads. I have too many! lol

*please no more washi tape rolls

*glitter, any, but I do I LOVE glitter in art that you send. I just have a big stash already.

*not fond of neon colors

*scarves and socks, make-up or make-up bags


Just want to say thank you to all these kind people for being an angel! :) If I could give you hearts for your sweetness, I would!

Thank you so much for so many wonderful angel gifts! I swear, you could be my personal shopper. Everything was something I would have bought for myself, had I seen it! z

The mini lights are fun, and the ME stuff is WONDERFUL. I really like the kitty washcloth, too - it's darling.

I wish you a Merry Christmas! Thank you so much!
