About Me

I have changed addresses as much as I have changed shoes over the years (OK maybe I'm exaggerating just a bit;). I have swapped over the years so many times, but I'm finally in a position where I can devote some of my free time to swapping again. I love getting snail mail, it's like Christmas in my mailbox every time I swap. LOOOOOVE IT!

Creative outlets are always soothing to the soul. I love trading ATC's, paper crafts, and some of the envelope books I've swapped over the years have been staples in my art supplies. I love crocheting blankets mostly but I've recently been dabbling in arigurimi. I just finished a Jack Skellington for my sister's birthday gift.

I used to teach elementary school, but I've just become one of the people switching to a new career in search of more money and better hours. Although my new career involves helping veterans, I'm still keeping my heart in education by teaching a couple of courses at the local university.

I live in a grey area always, in everything I do. I have the ability to see something from every angle. Sometimes people see it as indecisive but I see it as a gift. It even creeps into my art likes/dislikes. I love the light, bright and the dark, macabre. Nothing bothers me, if I don't like it I will find someone who does.

Favorite Music

I love literally everything about music. There is something from every genre that I like. I grew up in the 90's so I am partial to Nirvana, Alanis Morrissette, Jewel, and Reba. I love going to concerts and have collected a lot of great names on my list lately.

Favorite Books

I love to read, especially Stephen King (Bag of Bones is my favorite), mysteries, The Hunger Games, and children's books. I have a huge collection of children's books. Miss Nelson is Back is one of my favorites because I used to substitute teach. My all time favorite children's book has to be Glasses, Who Needs Em? The funny thing is I don't even where glasses.

Favorite Movies

My favorite movies are comedies and horror movies..but ill watch anything once.

Favorite Colors

My favorite color is blue, all shades. I really appreciate all colors and combinations.

Comment: Thanks for this fun new zine to work on! I have been looking at all the instructional Zentangle Project Packs on You-Tube. I just purchased one, and use the supplies for the others that I have put in a mini-word sketchbook (2 1/8x 3 1/16") (Myndology). I also use these tiny books to practice each Zentangle pattern that comes in my e-mail 3x per week, marking each step, So I have my own library. I have finished at least 6 of those little booklets, with 2 zentangles per page (front and back) I have learned to keep them in alphabetical order and to add notes to the pages regarding direction of pen strokes, coloring, shading, etc. I am not a CZT, I just do it for fun and my mental health! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
