I am 40+ years old, married for 11 years with four step kids. We live in Canton, MI in a 1953 ranch house that we are trying to decorate retro modern. (I say trying because everything I like is very very expensive!)
I love creating paper crafts, cooking, baking and gardening. I love sharing & finding new ideas with my friends. I'm addicted to surfing the web to find new "things". I can spend HOURS and can "find" just about anything.
My crafting & gardening style is earthy, simple, and random. I'm a rule follower - but not when it comes to crafting, cooking or gardening, I'll try anything.
My favorite color is green - with orange a close second these days.
I scrap with the help and assistance of three cats. I call them my knuckle heads.
I am terrible at making ANYTHING with the color pink in it.
I love anything with birds on it. I have a million bird stamps that I love to use. A lot of my crafting tends to be nature related.
Kind of eclectic.
Jason Mraz, Tom Jones, Ryan Adams, Patty Griffin, The Weepies, Marc Cohn, Counting Crows, Lyle Lovett, Gomez, Tom Petty, Death Cab for Cutie, Snow Patrol, Stereophonics, Lisa Loeb, Gnarls Barkley, Tegan and Sara, Jack Johnson.
Pulp Fiction, Jungle Book, Anchorman, Throw Momma from the Train, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Garden State.
Cardmaking. Used to be all I would do.
Random Altered Art (containers, books, etc...)
ATC's. Really enjoy making small, quick pieces of art that really reflect me.
Stamping - first and foremost. What did we do before the clear stamps came out?!?
LOVE LOVE LOVE fibers, but could learn how to use them better.
Not a sticker fan. Have them, rarely use them. Will never see me in a sticker swap.
I am not the "cutesy" type. Check out my Flickr page for examples of my style.
Have fallen in love with my Cuttlebug embossing folders!
Modge podge rules!
Ribbons and fibers and thread, oh my.
Old magazines and books for scrap.
Nature stamps - floral, bird, leaves, insects, etc...
Spices and herbs.
Cookbooks, magazines, recipes/cards.
Vintage "stuff" - paper, pictures, buttons, stamps, etc...
Boxes and books to alter.
Green, beige, brown, burgandy, copper, sepia, mustard, eggplant "stuff".
Non-chocolate candy (except chocolate minty things).
Any artwork with a bird on it.
Kitchy 50's stuff I can use in my kitchen (which is green, yellow and cherry red). Prisma color pencils Glitter pens Sharpies Plain colored note cards and envelopes Cat toys (for my 3 knuckleheads)
Stickers, beads, brads, or eyelets; Character things (Pooh, Hello Kitty, etc...); Post-it or note pads (have a ton of these!); Soaps or candles; Tea;
I can't sew. Not even a button. Trust me on this, I've tried. It's just not my cup of tea. But ironically I have fallen in love with dotee dolls. I've never made one, nor do I think I could. I received my first ever Dotee a couple of weeks ago and have decided I'd love to collect them. If you make dotee's and are interested in doing a private swap - I can offer: Handmade Cards, ATC's, Matchboxes, or Lucky Parcels. I'd love to swap my talents for yours. Check out my Flickr page to see if you like my style and PM me if you would like to swap. :-)
