Who am I?

I felt compelled to take a moment out of my day to write a little about who I am and what makes me tick.I have had a long and tiring day and maybe I was in a journaling mood and this is why I write this.Who knows.Anyhow where do I start?I am a down- to- earth 30 something woman who day dreams way too much for her own good.I have been with the same wonderful man for over 8 years and live with my 2 children(kats).I have many talents, some of which over the years have gone by the wayside and I intend in this year to bring them back into the fore front of my life.I am a poet, first and foremost.I am a pencil sketch artist (although am jealous of those who can paint).I collect antique books and actually read them.I have a fascination with the moon.I like to spend time in my garden in Spring and Summer months.I spend time trying to perfect my crafts.I absolutely have loved sending gifts and pretty things to people all around the world.I love fairys and sunshine, rainbows and moonbeams.I love butterflies and ladybugs and just about anything that is colorful and whimsicle.I love anything to do with the Arthurian legends and medieval times and am a bit of a Celtic spirit at heart.If I could only pick 3 places in the world to travel to it would be Santorini, Greece* Machu Picchu, Peru* and the Great Sphinx of Egypt.If I could be anywhere in the world right now I think I'd like to be able to see the earth from the moon.I am passionate about things,too honest for my own good and most days wear a smile on my face even if I am feeling down.Although when I am moody, watch out.hehehe.I love music of all kinds and my playlist is a confusing plethora of artists.I can only imagine how confusing it must look to others.I mostly am into new age, ambient and free your soul kind of music however I still love Seattle sounds of the 90's and cannot get away from The Cure and The Deftones as much as I've tried.I am very approachable so if you ever just want to say Hi,leave a comment or message,please do so.I love communication.It really does make the world go round.Well Thanks to anyone who happened to venture onto this blog and actually read this post if you haven't fallen asleep to it.And if you have I bid you happy dreaming.

Let us all Pay it Forward

The first FIVE people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It will be done this year. (that's right, before December 31, 2009!)
4- You have no clue what it's going to be.That's what makes it so exciting right?
5- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange. But I would never send something that I didn't like myself!

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must re-post this on your blog and make the same offer to the first 5 people who respond on your blog entry, thereby continuing the fun! (Though you can keep it local if you want, I don't fear international postage!)

So please come and join in the worldwide fun of pay-it-forward.Anyone anywhere is welcome to leave a comment on this post but only the first 5 to do so will get something handmade by me.Let's have some fun!

More ATC fun!

Handdrawn Folk Art ATC's

I got inspired on my day off today to draw up some ATC's and spend some time with Crayola.However when I get paid I think I'm switching to Sharpie because the color doesn't look as washed out.The top ATC is entitled 'The Sleeping Sun' and the bottom is entitled 'Under theMoonTree'.

Spring Matchbox with Mini ATC's

These are Spring themed Mini ATC's.So much easier to make than inchies.That's for sure.Plus a Spring Matchbox for them to fit inside.

I am currently hosting a Spring Themed Matchbox Swap on Swapbot so if anyone out there is interested and in the mood for cool spring items to swap please check out the following link.

My newest Spring Bookmark

A Spring themed bookmark I made for a Share swap on FB.Made for a friend.

Funky new ATC's I made

I got the idea from a contact on Flickr to make ATC's using temporary tattoos.All I've done is stamped and painted the backrounds and added tattoos and some stamp work and gems.These were fun to make and so easy.

BatBoy and Callgirl

My ugly dolls I made...CallGirl and BatBoy...Hugging!

This is Batboy.One of the Ugly Stuffies I made awhile back.I had a blast creating him and I want to make more in the future.

Rainbow Matchboxes

I put together these 6 colorful matchboxes for a swap I just completed.Inside they are filled with colorful little items that can be used for crafting.I am starting to really enjoy rainbow swaps and I'm sure this won't be the last ones I host.
