About Me

I'm a wife, mother, grandmother. I work half days from office/half days from home and care for a fully disabled husband.

I enjoy being at home, spending time with family,, drawing, painting, growing African violets, machine quilting, embroidery.

I collect snowmen, owls, small dolls and small stuffed animals, seashells, interesting jars or bottles, decorative tins. HD/HP or fabric ATCs. Love recycling the jars and tins for art supply storage!

I seem to unconsciously collect writing pens as well. I love a good writing pen and am a chronic list maker and planner so I always have a little notebook or journal in my purse just for that purpose.

My favorite color is blue, with green running a close second. Haven't met a color I didn't like though!

I do recycle things including mail packaging and regift those items I receive that I can't use.

Favorite Crafts

Watercolor, pen and ink, graphite sketching. My work is 11x14 and under, including ATC's. I enjoy landscapes, seascapes, wildlife and florals

Journaling - from drawing/painting, personal thoughts, to do lists, stamping and collage goes in here.

Sewing and Quilting - also smaller projects such as lap quilts, wall hangings, mug rugs and the like. Have been especially in to fabric ATC's lately.

Embroidery (Prefer DMC thread) and love to incorporate seed beads into my work. Recently began learning ribbon embroidery.


If you are my partner and needing ideas, these are the things that I am always in need of and make me smile:

ATC watercolor blanks or plastic sleeves.

Writing pens/drawing pencils/color or watercolor pencils Anything to doodle with!

Small still life, floral or landscape pictures cut from magazines, postcards, etc to draw inspiration from when I can't think of anything to sketch or paint

Small notebooks/journals . Lined, plain or graph paper.

Cotton fabric scraps for quilting - 2 inch or larger) I am collecting 2", 2 1/2" and 5" quilting squares)

Love getting fabric scraps uncut in squares just as much. Small pieces of cotton fabric suitable for fussy cutting also appreciated for fabric ATC creations.

Scraps of velvety, satiny, or brocade fabric/blingy trim/lacy pieces etc -Small pieces you would normally throw away are awesome! This fabric can be used- like cut off discarded clothing - adds to the vintage look :-)

Small pieces of quilt batting or fusible interfacing.

Felt (wool or acrylic) used for applique or fabric ATC backing. So small pieces are fine

Ribbons, lace, ric rack, any type trims, flat charms, silk/paper flowers, iron ons. Anything to put on a fabric ATC so small scraps are gold to me.

Seed beads, sequins or other blingy things to sew on ATCs or wall hangings

Sewing needles, thimbles, threaders.

Buttons any size, style or color. Again, used is great!

Zippers - any size or color

DMC Embroidery floss

Fibers like fun yarn, twine, pretty threads

Embroidery hoops - any size

Small scissors for paper or thread

Small glass beads, especially love seed beads. Also beading thread, wire or needles.

Anything snowman, beach or owl related

Soft fuzzy socks

HD/HP or Fabric ATCs

Journaling wish lists: Quotes, tags, stamped images or words or die cuts, pieces of pretty scrapbook papers, stick on bling, hand made papers, pretty stickers, etc Rubber or acrylic stamps, stamp pads

No thanks...

Dark or nude theme items.

Currently working on....

Comment: oh my goodness - this is sooooo perfect!! I love it! I also have to hide the ATC now from my husband, our first dog was a collie mix (he adopted her before we met and she was his heart) and this gorgeous collie face reminds me of her so much. Hubby has been known to stash ATCs I have made (then have to make a different one) or received if he likes them more. This is mine! I love it!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the great work and the purple fabric. Love it!!

JaneInSD rated for MAY- Extra happy mail (USA) on May 15, 2014
Comment: Thanks for all the cute stuff. Not sure if you knew this, but you didn't include the name of the swap or your swap-bot id in the package, so I had a heck of a time figuring out what swap it was and who sent it. I'm sure it was just an oversight, but thought I'd let you know. :-)
Response: Yes, it was indeed an oversight. I am so sorry you had to go through so much trouble to figure out which swap it was from. I am glad you liked what I sent and thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thank you ~ I like them!
Comment: Thanks for the squares.
Comment: Hi Angela, Thanks so much for the great pick3 package!

I updated the rules in The Bargain Boutique and asked that everyone read and sign them. Unfortunately I don't see your name so I had to remove you. If you'd like to rejoin please let me know. Thanks!
