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. Nothing fancy - just cozy - so me!
I'm a sizzix/sidekick fiend, I dabble in mixed media, love to collage and love to sew on paper.
January 7, 2023 - Happy New Year! I'm starting a new step with my mailings this year. I will include a little baggie of my "Die Cut of the Month". Thinking this is a way I can share my new dies with you. So when you receive random die cuts from me, this is the reason. If I see in your profile that you don't craft, I won't include them.
My perfect day would include shopping, crafting and gardening with junk food aplenty. Spending time feeding the squirrels and birds. I even have a few chickadees that will take seed from my hand.
Since being introduced to ATCs in July 2017, I have not looked back! They are my #1 craft interest … for now ^+^
Shopping: My favorite is finding vintage ephemera at thrift stores 👍
Music: HOME FREE, PENTATONIX, 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), Thomas Crown Affair (Russo), Return To Me (Duchovny/Driver)
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, 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, sock monkeys or fabric, ribbon and foam.
*I collect **** 3 of hearts **** Playing Cards!
*Used vintage postage stamps
*Any bits and pieces of Tim Holtz / Dina Wakley
*Decorative napkins and tissue paper
*Any pieces of homemade, gelli, watercolor or unusual papers
***DEC 2022: Tried my hand at CLUSTERS/SNIPPETS. Why didn't I hold on to lace and tulle ?😭? I'm having fun sewing these bits together!!
I've also discovered that I love to receive mail in a yellow envelope. ☀️ It's like sunshine in my mailbox ☀️

What a Wonderful surprise in today's mail, really cute pastel Bunny Tags in 2 sizes ! ! ! but what caught my eye was the card with a painting I recognized as an "August Renoir". He was my artist I chose in Sr High Art class and I did a self portrait of him in Oils for my 6 week project ! brought back memories for sure. Thank you So Much, Jean. 3/21/2023 12:36 pm.
