About Me

Update October 7, 2017: I've been away from swapping for some time, but I've checked in occasionally to see what's going on. With job changes and responsibilities, life commitments, etc., my time to sit and make art have been limited. I'm hoping to get back to swapping, specifically newbie swaps to earn more recent ratings. Anyway, on to something about me, as the heading asks...I live in upstate South Carolina. I enjoy the mountains of NC and TN, and like to vacation at our Carolina beaches. I love to travel, and enjoy learning about the history & culture of the areas I visit. I enjoy birdwatching, and keep a feeder outside my kitchen window. Two rabbits pass through regularly, sometimes an opossum too, and the squirrels are plentiful. I call my backyard the Peaceable Kingdom, and all are welcome.

Favorite Books

I enjoy reading very much, although I seem to have less time for it, usually only while I'm on vacation. I especially enjoy reading novels set in the South, in other locations I'm familiar with, or biographies/memoirs. Since I work as a counselor, I also spend time reading psychology-type nonfiction books for professional development. I buy most of my books at Goodwill or library book sales. I also collect bookmarks, and especially like ones w/ philosophical or inspirational quotes.

Favorite Television

Mostly I like PBS (anxiously awaiting Season 2 of Victoria), documentaries, or the reruns of I Love Lucy, Andy Griffith, Carol Burnett, and The Golden Girls. My newest favorite is Grace & Frankie on NetFlix.

Favorite Music

My favorite is James Taylor, especially his older classics; shag music (East coast beach music from the 60's and 70's), Native American flute music, Mannheim Steamroller (at Christmas). Some classical music is okay. Also like NPR, Enya, and Windham Hill-type instrumental music.

Favorite Crafts

As hobbies, I like to do landscape photography, and have recently become interested in art journaling, abstract painting, and collage. I've discovered how much I like to use index cards as my canvas for sketching with colored pencils and collaging with papers and other ephemera. I've collected a nice variety of postcards through my travels and Swapbot. I prefer to send/receive them "naked", as that's how PCs are intended. I enjoy creative writing when I have time/inspiration. I like to browse at Goodwill or thrift stores for second hand "treasures" to repurpose or use in my art. I spend time on Pinterest for new ideas. Occasionally, I enjoy baking desserts to share.

Likes & Dislikes

Likes: Spiral/swirl patterns (see my profile pic above), sun, mountains, trees, birds, seashore, seashells,or anything that is nature-oriented. Americana folkarts. Favorite colors: emerald/kelly green, pink, teal/turquoise, and yellow.
Favorite flowers: orange/salmon colored roses and any color daisies. Collect: snowmen, Disney's Cinderella. Favorite season: Autumn... I like leaves, pumpkins, and the rustic harvest style that's popular in the fall.

Dislike/Not Interested: Anime (or similar style animated characters), pagan symbols, occult, horror, gothic, or witchcraft-type images. I don't really keep up w/ pop culture, especially the Hollywood "drama"/ gossip stories. No "political", "awareness", or "causes"- unless it's the theme of the swap.
