About Me

It has been a few years now since I have been on here and thought it time to make some changes on my profile.

I am married, mother of two, grandmother of 1 and expecting a new little grandson in August 2013, his name will be Cian Logan (no idea where my daughter came up with that name but it sounds pretty cool). New York is not my home state, I am from the west coast. I have lived in Arizona, California, Washington, Alaska and now New York. My utmost wish is to get back to the west coast to be closer to my family.

Besides MrBill (the hubbs), the loves of my life have all been doxie dogs. I currently have 4 of the crumb bums: Maxwell, Samantha, Twisted Sister Sadie, and Penny (short for Pencil Neck, long story, but she seems to have been made of spare parts).

Favorite Crafts

My favorite crafts:
Clay Creations Sewing
Cross Stitch
Machine Embroidery

Not in that particular order...just as the whim to create hits me.

Favorite Music

Country music is my favorite, not the real old twangy stuff though.

Alabama is back!

Favorite Television

I watch mostly:

Discovery Channel
History Channel
A&E (Cowboy Saturday!)

Favorite shows:

Deadliest Catch
Ice Road Truckers
Pawn Stars
Criminal Minds
NCIS (damn I love Mark Harmon)
The Weather Channel (Jim Cantori...yum!)
Swap People
American Pickers
Kounting Cars
Property Bros (looking forward to their new series)
House Hunters
Diners, Drive Ins and Dives (who can resist Guy?)

Favorite Poem

Eldorado by Edgar Allan Poe

Gaily bedight,
A gallant knight,
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long,
Singing a song,
In search of Eldorado.

But he grew old--
This knight so bold--
And o'er his heart a shadow
Fell as he found
No spot of ground
That looked like Eldorado.

And, as his strength
Failed him at length,
He met a pilgrim shadow-
"Shadow," said he,
"Where can it be--
This land of Eldorado?"

"Over the Mountains
Of the Moon,
Down the Valley of the Shadow,
Ride, boldly ride,"
The shade replied--
"If you seek for Eldorado!"

Comment: Thank you for the dotee doll. You really put a lot of work into her.
Response: Had fun making her. Glad you like her.
pianoheart rated for CLAY me something on Jan 22, 2016
Comment: Thank you :) What type of clay did you use?
Response: After reading your profile I saw you liked birds so I made an ornament for you. The snake was an extra cause I like making them. I use sculpy II clay mostly, Premo is nice, but it tends to be too soft and I leave finger prints all over. I put on a coat of clear acrylic so they would be nice and shiny. Hope you enjoy them.

bb2 rated for PC: Stamped Image Swap--USA only on Aug 26, 2013
Comment: Thank you for the stamped images. My favorites are the butterflies.
Comment: Donna--What a cute little garden snake! I love him, especially his swirls of color and the eyes and his red tongue! And the wonderful snail--love his swirls as well. My Nathaniel will love the snail! Thank you so much! They will be sitting in two of my small house plants for sure! You are very good with clay---I've only made two items and with air dry clay so far. I'm not sure my arthritis hands will have the strength for polymers but am going to give it a try---won't know whether I can if I don't TRY! Hope you are having a good week as summer winds down although here in Houston summer weather will continue well into October! Thanks for such a cutey!
Response: So glad you liked them! The snail shell was a new technique for me. It was fun to learn. I like working with clay. If you get the Sculpey III, it is a lot softer to work with.
