About Me

Hi - Susan here - born and raised in Washington State. Single with a stray cat (orange tabby). I love the Pacific Northwest - the cool weather and mild seasons. I'm definitely a homebody. Since I don't share my home with anyone other than the cat, I don't have a craft room, I have more like a little cluttered craft cabin - knotty pine walls and all. So cozy!

I'm a sizzix/sidekick fiend, I dabble in mixed media, love to collage and love to sew on paper.

My perfect day would include shopping, crafting and gardening with junk food aplenty. I work so it rarely happens.

Since being introduced to ATCs in July 2017, I have not looked back! They are my #1 craft interest โ€ฆ for now ^+^

More About Me

  • Shopping: Tuesday Morning, Michaels, Joanns and thrift stores/garage sales

  • Music: Country, Christian and R&B

  • TV: Curse of Oak Island, Elementary, Rizzoli & Isles, Million Little Things, Madam Secretary, 911, 911 Lone Star, All Rise, Bull, The Equalizer

  • Movies: Dragonfly (Costner), The Proposal (Bullock/Reynolds), Sixth Sense (Willis), The Day After Tomorrow (Quaid)

  • Color: Greens, Browns, Oranges - I guess the fall palette is my favorite but I appreciate all colors

  • Likes: DECORATIVE NAPKINS AND TISSUE PAPER for collage, Washi Tape, Washi Stickers, Sequins, ATC Embellishments, Stencils, Birds, Cats, Snails, MUSHROOMS and Squirrels. I like vintage images and ephemera.

  • I love the magic of rub ons.

  • Not so much: Not a fan of teacher/reward/kid stickers or fabric, ribbon and foam.

New swap-bot Interests

Newer interests since joining Swap-Bot (July 2016):

I've also discovered that I love to receive mail in a yellow envelope. โ˜€๏ธ It's like sunshine in my mailbox โ˜€๏ธ
