My Etsy favorites
Stuff I have made for swaps
Hobbies: Scrapbooking, Altered Art, Reading, Going to Garage Sales (looking for crap I don't really need), going to auctions (carting home crap my husband hates).
My style: distressed/grungy/vintage...BIG Tim Holtz fan! I am very into vintage luggage....plain, altered, furniture made from it, images of it. Love, love, love old luggage! Also into old cameras with bellows.
Stuff I use in my art- Small vintage findings, old maps, scrapbooking supplies (I hoard them...shhhhh), tin type photos, vintage paper ephemera, Tim Holtz and Ranger products, vintage game pieces, grungy-looking stuff, Skeleton keys, Wizard of Oz stuff, Alice in Wonderland stuff, Rubber stamps w/ weird images (I keep saying I don't need anymore rubber stamps, but then I keep buying them anyway), old book pages, foreign postage stamps, varieties of washi tape, Gorjuss Girls rubber stamps (these conflict with my "I don't like cutesy' stuff, but for some reason I really dig them. I'd have more if they were cheaper), damask print, vintage music sheets.
Fave colors: Brown, Grey, lighter greens, turquoise, teal.
Least fave colors: Purple/Pink/Yellow
Fave food: Anything Chocolate and Jelly Belly Black jellybeans. LOVE those!
Fave Holiday- Halloween! Christmas is a close 2nd. Oh...and I have an addiction to making Easter scrapbook layouts. I have more layouts than I have photos to fill them.
Stuff I do not dig: Stickers, uber-cutesy or girly/flowery stuff, Things that have been in the presence of cigarette smoke, Scented items, Earrings...my ears aren't pierced , Coffee/Tea (but I do like chai), those "Magnolia" girl stamp images (I think they are so ugly), steampunk (Gasp! a Tim Holtz fan that doesn't like steampunk? Surprising, I know. I do like gears though), Kawaii...I kind of like Hello Kitty, but not so much the rest of it (yes...I know my profile pic is an onion with a face, but it's the only onion picture that actually looked recognizable in a teeny, tiny profile thumbnail)
What I already have a ton of and don't need- Ribbons/ Packaged buttons (always collecting more vintage buttons though)
Eclectic, but no rap, metal, or country.
Billy Joel is a musical genius.
Mountains Beyond Mountains, Outlander series, Clan of the Cave Bear series
While You Were Sleeping, That Thing You Do, Wizard of Oz, Heaven Can Wait,
Parenthood (can you believe they might cancel it?), Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Castle, Dexter, Storage Wars (my guilty pleasure), Pickers, Auction Hunters
People who don't know the difference between your and you're. Makes me crazy.........People who say "Libary" (it has another R in it, ya know?).....And I have a lot of driving pet peeves People who drive with their fog lights on when there is no fog......Idiots who just have to pull out in front of me and then go 15 miles under the speed limit.................People who buy a car with killer horsepower and then drive it slower than my grandma on her Hover-round. Complete disregard for the use of turn signals (when did that become ok?)
I have 5 kids (including a set of twins). They range from age 23 on down to 7. I am married to a veterinarian. He married me when I already had 4 kids...What an idiot, right? We have a pretty laid-back and happy life. We live in the armpit of Nebraska...which lacks excitement, but that's why God created Travelocity...so we could get the heck out of here once in awhile.
