About Me

(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 **

Tim Holtz
Pretty papers
vintage ephemera
old book illustrations/pages
washi tape
rubber stamps
polymer clay
nature findings
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
washi tape
rubber stamps
small embellishments
planner stickers
collage items
Tim Holtz supplies
vintage/unique ephemera
beads (not seed beads though)
(and pretty much anything on my 'Likes' list)

items that smell like smoke
strong scented items
3-D or Puffy stickers
foam supplies
sports themes
adult themes
scary stuff
Halloween 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.

Comment: Hi Suzy, Wow, Montana....i thought Wisconsin winters were bad, probably nothing compared to where you live. We recently had a long stretch of below zero weather which put me in hibernation mode. You are talented! The sketch on the front is beautiful, wish I could draw. I love the floral flip book, thanks SO much! Love the soft fibers you used throughout, gives it a cozy feel. Thank you for all the goodies included, so cute..cant wait to use them in future projects. I'm mainly into paper crafting, but I like to dabble in just about anything, although I have not tried clay yet. Hope out swapping paths cross again💟
