About Me

Oops! Now I'm a 75 year old retired elementary teacher living in Salem, Oregon, USA. I taught for nearly 40 years in all grades kindergarten thru 6th grade. Also taught for the local humane society and went into schools in 2 counties encouraging humane care of animals. I am married (55 years) and have 4 grown children and 3 grandchildren.

I enjoy making cards with paper, ink and glitter, making artist trading cards with all sorts of stuff, making postcards with paper or fabric, inchies and twinchies. I've been making 5 inch jointed paper dolls that fit on an ATC and larger sized paper dolls too.. I'm just starting to experiment with alcohol inks. You can see some of the ATCs I've made on my flicker site. I love gathering lots of new ideas! I love taking classes to learn a new technique and share ideas with others. Recently branching out into zines and other writing too. Fun to learn new things!

Favorite books-- Science Fiction and some Fantasy, Mystery, Historical Fiction (recently hooked on mysteries in ancient Rome by Lindsay Davis), Children's books. My favorite children's book is still The Secret Garden. Loved it since I was a kid.

Favorite TV-- PBS series like Downton Abbey and Masterpiece Mysteries, Nova, Frontline. I don't like programs that have shoot-em-ups and violence.

Favorite movies--Butterfly Effect, Sliding Doors, Midnight in Paris, Musicals old and new, Old Film Noir. I go to a local theater with friends sometimes to see the old movies (like Casablanca) on the big screen.

Don't care for: cartoonish stuff

Colors: I like most colors, but not fond of muddy mixes. I'm very drawn to greens and blues and "beachy" color combinations.

Styles: I like art deco and art nouveau, impressionist and other vintage art.

Wish List--Vintage pictures, postcards, letters and ephemera, interesting bits, unusual ribbon and trims, and whatever!

Comment: Thank you for the cute snowman but also for your kind message. I really hope things calm down again somehow, that virus is really a tough thing...And interesting to hear that you have German ancestors. Stay safe over there!
Response: I'm very glad you like the snowman! Yes, unless your ancestors were from a Native American Indian tribe, all of us are immigrants from somewhere!

Comment: Thanks for the timely zine, Pat. I started to do a corona-virus themed zine myself, but after writing the 1st couple of haiku I decided, nah, I want to think about something else for a change! Your sunny cover & flowing blue waves are a nice counterbalance to such a scary topic. Thanks too for the extra tissue papers. I'll put 'em to good use!
Response: I know what you mean. It seems to be all we think about lately. I am trying to do some positive stuff every day to balance things out. Thanks for the rating. Hope all is well with you.

Hello, my friend! You popped into my mind today, and I wondered how you are doing. Is it summer there yet? (sigh) not here either. . . .
