I lurked over at Craftster.org for several years and fell in love with ATC's after finally deciding to try them! I didn't consider myself an artist. I'm a writer, but these tiny cards just jumped out at me during a bad moment and although I can barely draw a sorta straight line, I have hopped on this craft and the ideas are flowing like crazy! I'm trying to change my mind to think in new ways that I didn't before. I'm being less critical of what I create and have made some ATC's that I'm very proud of! These "little lovelies" (that's what I call them) are so addicting and a great stress reliever. ATCs were my starting point and now I make, paint, draw, color, and collage all types of things and I'm always looking for NEW things!
I'd like to get some more rubber and cling stamps and cool papers or diecuts like some of the Tim Holtz ones that I've seen in Michael's. I like the clock/time, vintage, and travel ones. I really like Steam Punk items! Vintage keys and sticker sheets of them or papers with them are cool! Blue is my favorite color, but I also like grey and black and blood red (not orangey reds). I like Titanic things and Medieval things (love that period of history although I wouldn't have wanted to live then)! LOL! I love vampires including the Twilight ones, but most especially, Bela Lugosi as Dracula! Actually I like all of the Universal Monsters and I like zombie stuff. I like Minecraft. I've always loved Charlie Brown. I like Full Metal Alchemist...Edward is my favorite.
I love music especially Rock-n-Roll! I particularly like British stuff from the 80's and the Beatles are my all-time favorite band. I also like Ed Sheeran (adore him actually!), Green Day, Nirvana, and Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder on his own is awesome! Love him! On the other hand I also like baroque and classical music and played the flute in concert band and marching band. I have three sons and my youngest (aged 16) plays the alto sax! I'd like some sticker sheets of guitars especially electric guitars! I'd also like a musical note sticker sheet. I love violins and wish that I'd had the opportunity to learn to play one.
My current favorite tv show is EastEnders (yes, I'm an Anglophile) My parents bought me a Roku with a subscription to Acorn TV which is British and I'm developing favorites on there.
My favorite actors are Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, Martin Clunes, and Rufus Sewell.
British accents drive me mad and always have! I think I was born in the wrong place. I feel at home in England. On all of my visits over there, I didn't want to leave! I collect anything and everything British from tea pots, tea cups, anything with a Union Jack on it, tea cozies, Jaffa cakes (yum!), teas, tea party items like cloth napkins, canapÃ© knives, tiny tea spoons, tea infusers, tea balls, tea pot warmers, tea books, etc. Going for afternoon or high tea is something that I really enjoy! I like Prince Charles...the other Royals not so much. I like Scotland and Ireland as well.
I am CRAZY about hedgehogs and would love anything related to them! I have a male hedgehog that just turned a year old and I love him! His name is Sonic...not very original, but named by my 16-year-old...lol.
I love books and I'm an avid reader with usually several books going at one time due to my mood at that time. I particularly like romance and romance time travel, travel books; both books about the author's journeys and guide books, medieval history books, craft books of all sorts, and knitting books (I'm a knitter). I also collect art technique books.
I don’t have many sequin or sequin mixes so would love some of those especially shaped ones!
What I don't like: spiders...don't send me any spider things, please. I hate them! Would rather deal with a snake than a spider! Ugh! Spiders at Halloween are okay as long as not too realistic! Lol!
I don't like country decorating although I love chickens! You can send chicken stickers (I'd love that!), but I'm not into any other "country" type things.
I don't like cats so I wouldn't particularly enjoy anything with them! Small dog person here...I like mini Doxies and Yorkies especially!
Please don't send little bags of glitter! I wear contacts and glitter gets everywhere! My Mom was doing crafting with me and got something in her eye and had to go the eye doctor finally for some relief. There was a tiny bit of glitter in her eye and it scratched her cornea. I don't have any use for glitter anyhow. ;o) If you make me a pocket letter or something and I don’t have to actually touch the glitter, then that should be okay.
I'm a born-again Christian so please don't send me other religious materials. I'm not interested in anything other than my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He's the man!
March 4 update on some new obsessions: bees, mushrooms, botanical images especially vintage, tree images, Alice in Wonderland, miniatures, #3 playing cards (preferably with different backgrounds other than bicycle), anything junk journal, glassine envelopes (not an obsession...just would like some), and Vikings.
