About Me

I love to go walking in a park, eating at new restaurants, surfin' the internet and birding.

I make purses and luggage.


Favorite Movies

Alfred Hitchcock, Chick flics and comedies

Favorite Television

Game of Thrones, Outlander, PBS, Dr. Who, anything on HGTV, Project Runway, Netflix.

Favorite Crafts

Zines, papercrafts, altered books, journals, watercolors

I keep a diet/food scrapbook journal. Kinda inspired by Our Lady of Weight Loss.

I love mailart, fake postage stamps, silly postage inspired labels for letters. I love to write short silly letters.


I love kitschy, weird, and wacky things. Tacky souvenirs, Loch Ness monster, Bigfoot, Aliens, gnomes, trolls, flamingos, sock monkeys, etc

Postcards: silly, weird attractions, stadiums, bridges, "Greetings From ....", ______ at Night, etc.

Lavender- the scent, and flowers not necessarily the color.

I like religious items for making small shrines. Santos or homie figures Day of the Dead inspired images

Advertisements or photos of crazy weight loss devices. I have kept a weight loss/Food Scrapbook Journal. Maybe ads in other languages.

Diet related art inspired by Our Lady of Weight Loss by Janice Taylor.

I like Native American inspired art. My husband is Native American (Ponca).

I'm half Swedish. I like Dala Horses. I can't leave Ikea without buying Punschrullar.

old postage patches, badges, beads,

shiny metallic papers

Comment: Great recipe zine, but what a tease! I'm allergic to pineapple... lol. Don't worry about it though, I used to looooove pineapple, but just in the last couple yrs seem to have developed an allergy to it. Thank you also for the address labels. :)

Comment: Thanks for the interesting zine! Do you really get moths coming out? I really liked the swap-bot envelope you used with cool stamps and thank you for printing me the address labels! :)
Response: I probably won't get a moth. If i do it will be a reason to write another zine.

Comment: Thanks for your zine, I enjoyed hearing about your Halloween experiences :D I also liked your little 'pandagirl' symbol and how you printed the envelope yourself! Thanks as well for the awesome little ephemera bits!

Comment: Fascinating ! And I thought my background was interesting! I really thought it was cool about your husband's great grandfather! We thought that my husband might be part Native American, because he and his parents were all born in Oklahoma and he really looks like it! His father was an orphan raised in an orphanage, so we just didn't know. We recently did 23andme for him because they trace your ancestry genetically, but we were disappointed to find out that he was 100% European! Ah, well! Thanks for all the extras and the beautiful envelope!

Comment: This is beyond cool! Really enjoyed this zine..so creative and beautifully done... thank you so much as well for the super spooky extras... do you use a special program to make your zine? I like your drawings so much
Response: thank you. use Publisher. I create a 2 by 4 table to create grid. Then i just add clip art, pictures, and text.
