(was away for awhile, moving into an adorable new cottage)
I'm 38 years old and live in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Montana. I used to travel a lot, so anything travel related just makes me happy. I also love the outdoors...
nature really is the best medicine.
Life changed a lot for me after I had a rare Brain Stem Stroke in 2016, which left me profoundly disabled. I have had to learn to do everything all over again - swallow, speak, walk, etc. Because of all this, any artwork or happy mail I send you is filled with a bit of that hope and healing... I hope you'll feel it.
I really love photography and all things artistic. There is always a new project underway on my art desk. Creativity is my lifeline.
I create mixed-media art of all kinds, make jewelry, weave, crochet, draw, paint, and enjoy working on my day planner/art journal... just to name a few. Recently I discovered flip-books, and now I'm obsessed with them as well.
I listed some Likes and Dislikes just in case you needed ideas. I love surprises.
** Please don't send items that have a strong cigarette smoke smell **
old book illustrations/pages
unique paper scraps to use in collage.
the colors Orange, Teal, Purple, and all things "antique-ish"
And I adore anything with a fox or goat.
WISHLIST: (just in case you need ideas)
road map from your country (not USA)
book pages in different languages
Tim Holtz supplies

(and pretty much anything on my 'Likes' list)
items that smell like smoke
strong scented items

kid-like craft supplies
If there is a problem with something I sent, please let me know and I will re-send.
I will not rate you based on whether or not you send "goodies" (although, of course, those are welcome too). Ratings will be based on the time, energy, effort, and thoughtfulness put into the work.
