About Me

✨(On temporary hiatus through the rest of October while I finish my cosplay for Comic Con)✨

Instagram Spoiler Warning: I post outgoing swaps there and it might be something for you so if you’d rather be surprised, don’t click! 💖

Papercrafter, cake decorator, tattoo lover, cat collector, taxidermy hoarder, and the last candy corn enthusiast on Earth.

I work at two different bakeries, as both a cake decorator and baker. I love my job(s) but they are both stressful and tiring. When I'm not sleeping off 60+ hours of work I'm at my crafting table, brushing cats off me, trying to create something gaggably cute.

Favorite Crafts

Paper is my favorite medium but I've never made a scrapbook page in my life.

Faux taxidermy paper mounts? Made it. Coffee filter roses? Have a million. Functioning paper potion bottles? Yes. 3D collapsible paper carousels? Done and done.

When I feel like I need a paper-hiatus, I also like to bake, do cross-stitch, and work with felt.

Favorite Television

Forensic Files, King of the Hill, Arrested Development, Penny Dreadful, American Horror Story, Black Mirrors, Twilight Zone, Sherlock, Hannibal, Downton Abbey.

Favorite Books

Grimm's Fairy Tales, Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, The Last Unicorn, Dinotopia.

Favorite Movies

District 9, No Country For Old Men, Harry Potter, The Collector, Ace Ventura, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, The Blob (original), The Thing (original), Dreamcatcher, Star Trek, The Avengers.

Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle, My Neighbor Totoro, Pokemon, The Last Unicorn, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Bambi, Tintin.

Love

➸ Paper, punches, stamps and washi tape! (Inkadinkado, Deep Red, Lawn Fawn stamps.)

➸ Calligraphy, wax seals, quill pens and antiqued paper.

➸ Blank chalkboard stickers and tags.

➸ Anything Victorian, steampunk, western, and 1920-1950s.

➸ Shabby chic.

➸ Sweets. The sweeter, the better. Also sweets with spicy. (Chocolate sriracha, chocolate chili, chocolate wasabi, etc. Please no dark chocolate, it makes me cringe.)

➸ French macarons.

➸ Culinary lavender/rose.

➸ Chai tea, coffee and mini marshmallow hot chocolate. (I accept loose tea and teas manufactured without individual wrappers.)

➸ Flavored sugar and colorful sprinkles.

➸ Mythological creatures/cryptozoology. (Dragons, unicorns, fairies, wendigos, mermaids, were-creatures, etc.)

➸ Woodland creatures. (Mainly deer, I like owls but they are running the owl fad into the ground.)

➸ Kawaii. (No character/brand in particular. Not a huge fan of Hello Kitty though.)

➸ Kitties! (Jetoy cats especially.)

➸ Pastel colors. (Dusty rose, mint green and robin egg blue.)

➸ Antique colors. (Copper, antique gold, brass, turquoise and cream.)

➸ Color combos: Mint/Pink, Gold/Anything, Teal/Red, Black/White.

➸ Taxidermy and general oddity/apothecary things. (Real, faux, pinned insects.)

➸ Miniatures. (Miniature food/sweets are my favorite.)

➸ Peonies, roses and ranunculus.

➸ Enamel pins.

Hate

☠ Animal print.

☠ Anything that says 'diva' on it.

☠ Anything that says 'Keep Calm and _____.'

☠ 'Blinged out' items.

☠ Moustache stuff.

☠ Tye-dye/hippy things.

☠ Religious or political things.

☠ Reward stickers.

☠ Envelopes made from magazine pages.

☠ Dark chocolate.

☠ Coconut flavored/scented anything.

☠ Pineapple. (Allergic.)

☠ Sailor Jerry/Traditional tattoo styled stuff.

☠ Disney. (Frozen especially. Oh, I went there.)

☠ Looney Toons.

Note

I take pictures of everything I make, so if you do not receive something from me please let me know. I will show you the picture for peace of mind and I will also remake/resend. 💖

Comment: I love this postcard! I agree that Snow was never my favorite character on OUAT - I'm looking forward to see just what they do with the coming season. Fortunately, three of my favorites - Hook, Gold, and Regina - will be staying. I'd love to see the photo of your HP Honeydukes uniform! How clever! Thanks for the great PC!

You asked me to share photos of our church house reno, I'm afraid your screen name will get lost on my profile if I wait to share this. Renovations will be complete this Fall, we are posting the process here at our blog: http://churchbelltodoorbell.blogspot.com/ Tons of photos to share as they're processed. Enjoy! (0= -Debbie

Holy cow, that is gorgeous. And I can imagine how long it took! I do a lot of fiddly stencils and it can be well, fiddly. For pop ups though... I learned to make a mouth that opens and closes when I was in 2nd grade and I never branched out beyond that one specific skill...

oblivionspin on Feb 11, 2015:

You had me at 3D collapsible carousels... How? Do you have pictures or something? Also, I friggin love candy corn. Though, the candy corn pumpkins will always be #1 in my soul.
