About Me

Married, two furry children of the feline persuasion:), my husband and I are pescatarians (eat only fish and veggies), I love to travel US and Europe (finally made it to Australia and now am in love with aborignal dot paintings!), love time at the ocean or in a forest.

Making Art


I'm currently working on a new book project and need IMAGES OF BEES preferably magazine images because I'm doing image transfers with them and that seems to work best. Color would be fab. Or vintage images would also be helpful.


*** THANKS! ***

Mixed Media, handdrawn art, Art journaling, ATCs and anything I can make by hand.

I love doing hand-drawn art with Sakura Pigma Micron pens (#02,#03,#05) and then using watercolor to add color to the drawings.

Gelli prints are also a fun addiction:)

UPDATE 9/30/16 Finally got to meet this beautiful soul, so open, so kind:) Take a peek at my blog to see the story about my SASSAFRASSEEEs and Steven:) Still over the moon:)


-- BOHO All things bohemian gypsy, obsessed with leather fringe and feathers, mehndi designs, paisley, mandalas


--Anything hand-drawn or painted

--Poppies, Dahlias, Lily of the Valley

--Color: Green (Green-Gold, Lime Green, Grass Green)

Alt text

--VINTAGE snapshot photos (not the fancy studio-posed ones) just snapshots of people in the past, ESPECIALLY those posing with their pets

--Religious Items: Catholic prayer cards, rosaries (can be broken or in pieces), saint medallions, prayer books (or pages from), madonna pictures (NOT the singer please:), photocopies of Bible page that has the verse from John 3:16 (New Testament) on it (please don't rip the page out of a perfectly good Bible)

--Cupie dolls

--VINTAGE ephemera scraps Love old receipts, legal documentation on specialty papers like onion skin or parchment (don't need the whole thing, sample pieces are great for collage), old stubs or tickets, old envelopes (discolored ok), old book end pages, labels, stickers, instructions or assembly diagrams, foreign language book pages, engraved book illustrations, used postage.

--LACE/TRIM scraps Don't need a bunch and can work with little bits you'd probably throw out (3" or smaller). I've joined a FaceBook group LITTLE OLD LADIES WITH ATTITUDE (LOLA) and we make tiny dolls and the scraps are perfect for thier dresses and collars and even hair ornamentation:) DO NOT NEED FABRIC, just the trims.

INTERNATIONAL PARTNERS I love getting foreign mailing/stationery envelopes, not the fancy kind, just your everyday ordinary envelope and if you throw in an extra postage stamp (can be used or new) from your country that would make a great goody for me:) THANKS:)***

Comment: Wow, where did you find so many bee-things --- Bee wax stamp, bee washi, bee rubber stamp images, bee metal charm, bee die cut, various hexagon paper pieces? Even the envelope has bee-hive patterns on it. Your package is truly super bee-ti-ful. Thank you so much for putting it together! 😉
Response: LOL. I'm in the process of creating a bee themed artist book so I've been collecting all this stuff for over a year. There's a lot of "cutesie" bee things but I'm trying to use more realistic stuff. So glad it made it to you. Have fun with it, bee creative ;-)

Comment: Yay, It finally got here! Everything is so awesome! I love how that lace worked on the gelli print and I could sit and "pet" the suede butterfly all day. Thank you so much for a wonderful swap! Have a wonderful day! Hugs, Diane
Response: Thank goodness! I got addicted to going to thrift stores just to buy lacey clothing to cut up and try on my gelli plate:) It's fun experimenting. So glad you liked everything...hope it was worth the wait:) Take care!

Comment: What a fun envelope! And I love everything in there. Is that an ACT that you painted? Thank you for the nice surprise in my mailbox.
Response: I forgot to take a photo of each specific swap but I think the envelopes were made from extra covers of a magazine called RubberstampMadness. I did the cover art:) I had all these extras lying around and thought they'd make fun envelopes. Glad you liked everything, have fun with it:)

Comment: Thank you so much
Response: You are very welcome. Hope you have fun creating! Take care.
Comment: I love the envelope! I wish I hadn't tossed so many books before. I didn't even think of making them into envelopes when I considered whether I'd use them for journaling. Interestingly, I got a page from an Edgar Allen Poe poem in another swap. The anatomical heart card is coming together with a theme.
Response: YAY! Glad you liked it. Have fun creating!
Comment: Great assortment! Thank you!
Response: You're welcome. Have fun creating!
