About Me

I'm Tara, 42 from Upstate New York. I have never done anything like this before but I think it seems pretty awesome!

If what I sent wasn't enough or to your liking, I'm sorry! I will always send what's required at the very least and on time - if for some reason you don't get what I have sent or dislike for whatever reason, please don't rate me down without sending a quick note. I will always make good on anything!

I'm hosting my own ATC series on COLOR! I'd love to have you join!!

Favorite Crafts

Love all things artsy and craftsy!! I'm new to a lot but love learning new things and enjoy drawing, painting, abstract, pouring, collaging, lettering, jewelry making, scrapbooking, embroidery, cross stitch, weaving, string art.... I craft with canvas, acrylics, wood, paper, glass, stickers, rub ons, washi, and plan to try resin soon. Also have a few jewelry making kits to try, a soap making kit and just got equipment to try my hand at wood burning and metal stamping! Willing and eager to learn any new crafts or hobbies (obviously lol)!

Entertainment

Movies & TV - geeky stuff, a lot of sci fi, horror ish, quirky. Some fandoms include Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Lord of the Rings/Hobbit, Star Wars, Vampire stuff (all of them- True Blood, TVD, Originals, Buffy, so many more), Always Sunny, Letterkenny, Supernatural

Will probably get back to this with even more favs later.

Likes

All dogs, but especially beagles and other hounds. Bodies of water, oceans, lakes, rivers, etc. Stars, sun, moon, planets, etc. Gnomes. Christmas. Love books & libraries. Lots of colors, some favs include all pinks & purples, teal/turquoise, phthalo blue and cherry red. I also love pastels, b&w and vintage too though. Love bird themes. Nature in general, botanical themes. Animals: woodland, aquatic, zoo, domestic and mythological. Love dinosaurs. Enjoy supernatural/sci-fi/horror themes, but not gore or slasher, more like space, time travel, magic, vampires, demons, angels, werewolves and monsters. Love traveling and travel related items, landscapes, landmarks, maps, postcards, ticket stubs, menus, museums, zoos. Love to cook, would love your favorite recipe. Pop culture references, sarcasm, positive affirmations, nerdy, geeky, dorky, snarky and cheesy, all welcome. Art of any kind. Did I mention dogs? Would love some paint chips/strips if you have any!!! I also love to collect magnets and shot glasses from all over the world!

Comment: The Omaha zoo is in the top 3 in the USA, I believe. Only been there once myself, but it was definitely fun. Particularly dug the desert dome.
Response: That's what I've heard! The desert dome is definitely a huge draw. Someday!!
