About Me

I’ve been a scrapper/ crafter for many decades. I enjoy all forms of art and seeing others point of view. Mom of 2 and a fur baby. Looking forward to some swaps.

I love steampunk and vintage. Dragons , fairies, elves ( anything fantasy) Art Deco ,oriental, abstract. Not a huge floral fan except I really LOVE calla Lillis and sunflowers.

I’m pretty open minded and enjoy wit,sarcasm and don’t judge others art. It’s all beautiful.

I’m not religious and would prefer to not receive religious items. Thank you for understanding:)

Unless there is something really unique you’d like to,send, I don’t need any extras. Thanks so much

Favorite Music

Music... hmm where to begin lol. Honestly I like pretty much all music except gangster rap and really heavy screaming metal.

Classic rock would be my favorite,like Led Zeppelin, eagles, sabbath, Alice Cooper, grew up with 80s glam rock, etc followed by Celtic and alternative like Portis head , Enya, clannad enigma, etc.

Favorite Books

I love to read ! Fantasy like Terry Brooks, Jim butcher, Anne rice, Devon monk. Kate Locke I also like mysteries like John sandford, Michael Connelly,J.D Robb.

If you like urban fantasy/ detective check out Dan Willis series arcane casebook on Amazon.

Favorite Movies

30s and 40s musicals! Star Wars! Serenity, face off , American pop , god father, anything Tarantino, wizard of oz, Chitty Chitty bang bang, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Alice in wonderland, interview with a vampire, queen of the dammed, heavy metal, Harry Potter movies, Willy wonka and the chocolate factory, guys and dolls, singing in the rain,

Favorite Television

Game of thrones, castle, firefly, American gods, Bosch, csi Las Vegas , Buffy the vampire slayer, angel, bones, too many more to list :) walking dead, ozark, “you”

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking, card making, mixed media canvases, starting to do ATC and pocket letters. I just love to create. It’s my way of decompressing. I have a passion for challenging myself with new art. It’s fun to come up with ideas for the theme of a swap.

Favorite colors

Love purple, black ,copper, green, earthy colors

Not crazy about yellow and pink, neon colors. It honestly depends on the theme, I’m ok with just about anything as long as it’s made with heart :)


You can see some of my ATC’s on my instagram.

thank you for the message and looking in on me. My mother passed away in Feb and my heart just can not get into swapping. I keep saying I need to force myself back into it but I never do.
