Hello! I'm an utterly addicted crafter and swapper from Los Angeles, now living in Kansas. After many years in the corporate world, I went back to school and earned my BA in English Literature. I was half-way through my MA when I developed a lot of health issues and had to quit.
My faves include old movies, antique cars, Italian and Mexican food, making jewelry and sculpting in polymer clay (mostly art dolls). I love going to concerts and seeing plays and musicals, especially something completely crazy and out of the ordinary.
My favorite color is bright blue, my fave actors are Gene Kelly and Alan Rickman. I read voraciously and my ultimate fave toy is my iPad (with a Kindle reader).
****PLEASE NOTE**** I am not a flaker! PLEASE let me know if you don't receive an expected swap from me. Please communicate, I value my high ratings and will do anything I can to make my partners happy.

I confess I'm a hopeless CRADD - Craft Related ADD...
I enjoy beading, polymer clay sculpture, art dolls, sewing, costuming, paper crafts.
...and anything I haven't tried yet...
Other than dust bunnies under the bed (and everywhere else), I collect angels, penguins, beagles, Webkinz, magnets, ghost stories and recipes. I'm also on the hunt for anything celtic or Irish related, music, jewelry, books...
ATCs - Never made them before and I'm having way too much fun with them.
Skinnies (3x5 ATCs) - Let the creativity flow!
Victoriana - Particularly advertisements, but anything 18th or 19th century looking
Inchies - Can't have enough!
Magnets - I've always liked making them, but this is way over the line...
Bookmarks - Loving making and getting them
Dotee Dolls - I'm not very good at them yet, but I'm having lots of fun practicing
Anything to create SteamPunk: old watch parts, gears, old keys, old or interesting-looking small hardware parts, that kind of thing.
Interesting, cute, fun cardstock for ATCs
Cool fabric for Dotees and other dolls
Felt in any color
Embroidery floss in any color
