Wow! It sure was confusing finding this page...
I was "banned" from the Tea Bag and a Few Words Swap because my profile wasn't complete enough. Just figured out how to add information. To the basic stuff I gave when I signed up. This needs to be made clearer do Newbies like I am. Just sayin'...
So - here goes:
My name is Ilene Harris and I am a retired elementary school teacher. I live in the Redwoods of beautiful Humboldt County in the far area of Northern California, almost in Oregon. I love crafts of all kinds, usually focusing on quilting, book arts and jewelry making. We live on seven acres in a rural town, so the outdoors is special to me. We garden and make a sanctuary for birds in our backyard. I love animals of all kinds, and volunteer at a local thrift shop for the Humane Society called Tailwaggers. I enjoy traveling, snorkeling, reading and collecting found objects and upcycling them. I don't have a website or a blog, but I am on Facebook and you can see lots of pictures there.
I have made ATC cards once before, for a swap at an Art Retreat I went to called ArtFest, which was in Port Townsend, Washington. I liked those because they were like little pieces of artwork in a small space.
LIKES: animals, gardening, quilting, knitting, beach combing shells and glass, collecting found objects, buttons, old jewelry, reading, making jams and jellies from our garden fruit
FAVORITE TV SHOWS: Downton Abbey, Friday Night Lights (over), Mad Men
BOOKS: Right now I am reading David Sedaris' Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls. I like human character stories, not horror, murder mysteries or science fiction.
FAVORITE COLORS: Teal blue, purple, green (sea colors)
FAVORITE FOODS: dark chocolate, good coffee, butter cookies, Meyer lemons, fresh blueberries and Santa Rosa plums (all from our garden)
