About Me

I do not flake and I always send my items on time, so if you don't receive yours or if you have a concern, please contact me so we can figure it out! If for some reason your items arrive with postage due, PLEASE let me know and I will reimburse you!

There have been some delivery issues and delays with our post office recently, so if you don’t receive something as quickly as expected, or if I haven’t rated you in the allotted time, please contact me so I can check on it or resend if necessary.

Artist, painter, photographer, maker, free spirited slightly disorganized, delightfully chaotic creative girl, who enjoys making things and getting messy. Painting flowers and faces are my fave things, but I also love art journaling and mixed media art and have fun experimenting with new techniques. I love lots of color, and am slightly addicted to all shades and variations of the color turquoise! Followed closely by yellow...the color of sunshine. I enjoy following other artsy people on Instagram and am fascinated by the creative process of others. I'm a bit of a word nerd as well. I love interesting words and am a collector of quotes. I have a sarcastic, often off-color sense of humor and am not easily offended (except by anything unkind about others!) Coffee is my bff, and I like fun coffee related items.

Favorite Crafts

Painting is my favorite thing to do, and I paint almost every day. Usually acrylic, but sometimes I dabble with oils, or oil and cold wax. I love the great texture you get with it. I also art journal, which includes a variety of techniques and mediums - lots of paint and texture, stamping, stenciling, collage - and whatever else strikes my fancy. I love monoprints, or gelli prints, and I like to use them in a variety of projects. I enjoy playing around with different types of paint and mixed media art. ATCs are fun, and so is sending and receiving mail art. I occasionally carve my own stamps. This list changes on a regular basis as I'm inspired by new creative pursuits.

Favorite Music

I love music and my taste is very eclectic. There's almost always music playing in my house and in my vehicle, and definitely when I'm arting, but it varies, depending on my mood. I love the blues, western swing and old classic country, the big bands of the 40's, and the oldies from the 50's & 60's, classic rock, and pop music. Sadly there isn't a lot going on in today's country music that I love. I'm not a heavy metal fan, and not much into rap and hip-hop.

Things I Like

I love bright colors, and flowers, flowers, flowers! I’m into bohemian style, mermaids, butterflies, dragonflies, birds & bird cages. I like vintage papers and ephemera, old journal pages and old handwriting, vintage photos, and book pages, especially with botanical prints and diagrams, or other unique designs, and old maps. Fun unique items to include in junk journals or on ATCs, including photos or magazine cutouts of interesting faces. Stickers/rub ons or words and quotes cut from magazines and books. Pretty floral paper napkins. Wallpaper samples, especially vintage or retro ones. I’d love receiving gelli prints from other crafters.

Things I don't care for

Not a fan of insects, except for butterflies and dragonflies, or other animal prints and designs, skulls, dragons, gargoyles, etc., holiday items, cutesie or childish designs, teddy bears. Please do not send food, teas, candles or other scented items.
