About Me

A warm hello to the person reading this!

I live in the US on the Oregon coast on the Pacific Ocean. I am very fortunate to live where I do. It is beautiful!

I am a 35 year old mother of five homeschooled children. In fact my daughter will be helping me put together many of the items, and she loves FOXES and anything Japanese or anime/manga (if you're interested in surprising her!). She is 11, so cannot sign up yet.

Like so many Americans, I am a mashup of genetics, but I am Dutch, Irish, German, and Lithuanian mostly and so am especially interested in these areas! ๐Ÿ’–

I am interested in so many things, being an aquarius, and I find it hard to make up my mind as to what I want to learn about at one time. I perform with a very small local group of talented people to put on a Vaudeville style show, in which I sing, dance, play piano and ukulele, perform comedic skits, I'm learning how to juggle and am breaking into the realm of the performance clown, especially the silent characters. I love performing, and do it wherever I can!

I am also interested in the silent arts (lol), collage, calligraphy, etc. (as I'm sure most of us here are!). I used to collage a lot as a teen, and am hoping this will give me an excuse to get back into it! I just love finding things that normally would be discarded as junk and turning them into something beautiful! And am excited because it seems that this community is full of people who appreciate just that! There is something magic in that scrap of paper, that little button, that old black and white photo....

I could tell you my favorite colors, or whatever, but I'm less interested in coaching you into how to make me something I'll like, than just seeing the results of the creative process from each and every one of you! We are creating magic, and I can't wait to see what all of you are inspired to do! I feel honored to me a part of this amazing group of people!

I have no dietary restrictions or allergies. The only food I don't like is radishes, and I doubt anyone will be sending me those. Oh, and I LOVE DARK CHOCOLATE!

I love to try and experience new things! If you want to send me a really weird tea flavor, I'm in! I'm the person where before you were like, I don't know if they would like it, I'm your person! I love the unusual and different. That's how I found out that mustard and peanuts are the worst flavor combo ever... ๐Ÿคฃ

Also, you should know, my passion is really to make something out of nothing. My husband has a junk removal business and I am a housecleaner, so often we are hired to remove things from houses that are going to be put up for sale. And sometimes those houses have some cool stuff, which I try to donate before it just goes to the dump (most of the time it just needs to go to the dump). And i always collect anything crafty that was left behind. So what you get from me may not be fancy and store bought and in the most recent style, but it will be made with love and creativity and the TIME it takes to gather disparate objects into a cohesive whole. ๐Ÿ’–

Favorite Music

I listen to a ton of music! It's an aquarius thing... I'm a professional housecleaner, so I have headphones in all day. I primarily listen on Spotify, and I'm always digging for music to use in my shows, and to play at jams (which are like open music circles). I rarely find an artist that I enjoy most of what they create; usually it's only one or two songs. So here I'll list some favourites - artists of whose work I enjoy the majority!

Anda Union

Too Many Zooz

Wardruna

Smothers Brothers

Kathleen MacInness

Circus Contraption

Charlie Parr, especially the Stumpjumper album

Vocal Spectrum (I don't know how he holds that note that long at the end of Go The Distance!)

I don't listen to popular music, so I never listen to the radio...

I also love listening to podcasts while I work, especially anything paranormal, conspiracy, cryptid, I also really enjoy radio lab.

EDIT ๐Ÿ˜

There is one thing I would love for you to send me. If you are from any country outside the US, I would love for you to send me foreign currency! If you have pocket change, pleeeaaase throw a few in for me! It will go in my collection! And If I end up with duplicates I will pass them on. I am not hoarding ๐Ÿ˜. Or for Americans, if you collect and have duplicates, please pass along! ๐Ÿ’– Thank you!

SECOND EDIT: after doing a few swaps now, and realizing the weight factor in sending mail, please take that into consideration, and maybe only include coins in a package or something.

Favorite Television

I don't have at tv, but I have watched a few things on my phone.

Game of Thrones

Vikings

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Black Mirror

Also I really like the talent shows, like AGT, BGT, etc. I love getting new performance ideas, or things I can learn.

Favorite Movies

My all-time favorite movie is Master and Commander, Far Side of the World. This movie was incredibly well-made, clever, funny, and historical (War of 1812). It was based on the book series by Patrick O'Brien, which I have yet to read, but was lucky enough to run across almost the complete series in a move-in out clean (๐Ÿ˜ฎ see above).

I also loved Dances With Wolves

I really don't watch that many movies, because I don't have much time and I'd rather fill it with my family and creating things and performing, but also I love quality movies and they are hard to find... Suggestions are appreciated

Favorite Books

I really only read non-fiction. I'm just addicted to learning, and plus I teach my children so my house is full of learning materials. But also, we only have so much time on this planet, and I'd rather spend it learning something.

That being said, I really liked the Circle of Ceridwen series. Historical fiction about the era of the Viking invasion of England.
