About Me

Please Note... I always send my swaps out by the deadline. If you haven't received anything from me and it is 2 weeks past the deadline, PLEASE pm me and let me know. Also, I always rate as soon as I receive a package. It is just common courtesy to at least rate someone who has taken the time to send you something. So, if you haven't been rated or received a Thank You from me, then I haven't received your package. I will pm you before I rate. It's the polite thing to do.

I'm a girly girl, punk,goth,hippie,rocker and geek rolled into one! My tastes are eclectic in every aspect of my life .I'm very old school.I love bits and pieces of everything. I've been reinventing things for years. I love to craft and design my own jewelry,handbags,clothing and whatever else strikes my fancy.

All things Disney is my worst addiction, especially vintage Tinkerbell and Nightmare before Christmas. Hello Kitty is up there on my like list, but I prefer the offbeat ones.

Vintage items are a great love of mine, especially aprons,toys,kitchenware,glass, linens and buttons.

I collect original art from all over the world and love Gothic pieces.

I love picnics.

My favorite candy is frozen Hershey's with Almonds. I love corn nuts , flavored tootsie rolls,and Boston baked beans, but alas,,, candy and snacks need to be sugar free now due to health concerns. (except for Halloween and Holiday candy!)

I'd live on a farm and have lots of animals if I could. I'm a sucker for a stray.

I am a student of life, a Social Worker, a Punk Rock Princess, a Mother, a Wife, a best friend,a sister, a daughter, a retail worker, a business owner , a teacher and a dreamer. I chase shiny things.... My life is good.

Favorite Music

I'm a Rocker from way back but I love all types of music except gangster rap. It's in my blood. Depending on my mood, you can find me listening to Johnny Cash,Taylor Swift or the Sex Pistols. The Ramones & Social Distortion are my favorite rock n roll bands. I adore Bob Marley, Don Ho, Aretha Franklin,Janis Joplin, Robert Gordon,Jethro Tull, Flogging Molly, Enya , The Rockcats & Stray Cats. The list goes on and on.

Favorite Books

Anything Tim Burton or the like.Fairy Tales,Through the Looking Glass, Alice in Wonderland,Peter Pan, joke books, Rock N Roll stories...

Favorite Movies

All things Disney, Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. Dead Like Me,Nightmare Before Christmas,Corpse Bride,Coraline, Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Harold & Kumar,Labyrinth,Willy Wonka,Benny & Joon.Tank Girl, 9, The Thin Man,Goonies, Lars and the Real Girl.Bridesmaids, Too many to mention. Anything that will take you out of reality and make you use your imagination or make you laugh!

Favorite Television

I love comedies like the Big Bang Theory, all the judge shows, And older stuff. 3rd Rock From The Sun is one of my all time favs. Oh ya, I can't forget the Banana Splits!

Favorite Crafts

Just about everything. I love to design jewelry and handbags. Throw me a new project and I'm in heaven! I sew a bit, knit a little,paint, and some scrap booking(not much though). I love unique glass beads, anything I can take apart and re purpose.

Favorite Holiday

I love Halloween, there's nothing better then Skulls,pirates and all things that go bump in the night. We are known in our neighborhood as the Halloween House.

I also love celebrating Dias DE Los Meurtos-Day of the Dead .Such a wonderful , colorful celebration of life!

Favorite Colors

Pink and Black are the best Pale Pinks not so much. Red also turns my wheels! Tie dye is wonderful!


Me, my husband of 32 years & our son. Small and comfy and wouldn't trade it for the world. I have acquired a nice extended family with our friends.

NOTE: NO Cat 's in our family, love them but am highly allergic. Please do not send things with cat fur. Thanks.

A little more ....

I live in jeans, skirts and t-shirts. If I'm being sent a top, please make it an XL as my top is kinda big:0).

I love slippers! I'd live in them if I could. I have big feet though, so if you should find a groovy cool pair please get ones that will fit a size 10 foot.

Dislikes Scented things other then vanilla. They give me headaches.

Smoke smells,

Cat fur,


seed beads-I've got a million,

plastic buttons,

black licorice,

Country or Americana themed items,

Yarn-I don't knit or crochet much.

Kids stickers- unless they have some tie in to my profile.


Vintage Poodles- Love them!


Anything Tim Burton,

One of a Kind Treasures

Vintage Note Cards,

Vintage Halloween,

Anything from my likes list. I'm easy!
