About Me

I live and work in Austin,Texas and am so glad to have found swap-bot! It has helped build confidence in my creativity and art in a safe environment. Each swap I receive makes me smile and learn.

I'm an usher at three theaters and love concerts, plays, musicals, opera, and dance. I like almost all music. My all-time favorite musician is Joni Mitchell. Have been in a book club for 10 years and like to read everything.

Love movies and try to see all the best picture nominees before the Oscars every year. Have to admit comedies and rom-coms are my favorite.

I enjoy making junk journals and junk journal like greeting cards. Have started making ATC's and altered playing cards. This summer I bought a sewing machine to add stitching to paper craft, alas, it is still in the box..some day..some day soon. ;)

Things I collect: playing cards, jokers, postage stamps, interesting matchbook covers, ticket stubs, things for junk journals, items for assemblage, collage papers, double five dominoes, bookmarks (from independent bookstores, libraries, and museums), and vintage ephemera...

A very few of My Favorite Things (not in order):

The great outdoors, botanical, woodland animals, birding, pretty scenery, waterfalls, armadillos, monkeys, Egypt (especially Egyptian baboons), alchemy symbols, tarot cards, vintage Hawaii, burlesque, interesting paper, Pegasus, cats and kitties, art, artists, and art museums, art decco, dogs and puppies, Star Trek, postcards, rabbits, word play, gardening, flowers (especially morning glories and daffodils), kayaks and canoes, rivers, irreverent humor, languages, travel, Mona Lisa, Matisse, the Orion constellation, images of animals playing cards, clouds, ukuleles and guitars, geology, crystals, mineralogy, vintage everything. Will pretty much like anything you send and will love anything that you make.

What makes me smile like a Cheshire cat - a freebie bookmark from an independent bookstore in your area.

Don't care much for...food items, religious themes, Hello Kitty, princesses, Disney, foam stickers.

(Please forgive if I'm a little late or do not rate promptly, Lately, I'm on the road more than I am at home. I go to three different cities over three hours away to deal with aging parents and in-laws. Thank you for understanding.)
