Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
(Finally updated for the first time in over two years!)

39 year old Pagan female who lives in Florida with her guy and two cats, loves Disney, reads fanatically, tinkers in photography and believes growing up is overrated. Recently, I've also started cosplaying and doing Disneybounds. It's a lot of fun and more ways for me to fly my geek flag.

October 2011, I had a hysterectomy at age 34 due to 3lbs of tumors in my uterus. I became the face of healthcare reform in America when I also posted my "I am Obamacare" image to my blog and it went viral.

I started running my business, PhoenixFire Designs full time shortly after my hysterectomy.

I do craft shows, art festivals and markets all over the Tampa Bay Area now!

Me at Dapper Day in my Haunted Mansion Disneybound. I made the bat stanchion necklace I'm wearing!

My husband and I at Spring Dapper Day 2015

Sadly, I lost my beloved tabby girl, Mika, in July 2016. I still have the grey girl, Gracie, and the orange girl Ginger (aka The FLF).

My primary craft skill is jewelry, wire wrapping and various beading (being most famous for my tree of life pendants!) though I'm a bit of Jill-of-all-trades when it comes to crafting. I'm happy to try just about anything at least once. I've made paper tile mosaics, silverware wind chimes, carved a wand out of wood, work in dollhouse (1:12 scale) miniatures, created quilled flowers, sculpt wearable costume horns from polymer clay, made a flower wreath to wear on your head, I've decoupaged and painted, photographed and shadowboxed. So it's safe to say I really enjoy crafting! Cheesy

Personal Swap Availability:
Interested in Doing Personal Swaps: yes

What I Could Make For You:
jewelry, tree of life pendants, bird nest pendants, some polymer clay, some paper goods, paper tile mosaic, home decor items, etc.

What I'd Like to Receive:
stained glass, lampwork, knitted things, pottery, wood things, wire-wrapping, jewelry styles I don't do, sewing projects, art, or anything really that you consider "yours"
Likes And Dislikes For Potential Swap Partners Or Just For Fun:
Things I Love:
anything with a phoenix (the bird, not the city!), chocolate brown and teal blue together, thin stripes, Disney, jewel-tones, silver, glass, pottery, natural or nature-inspired things, trees, goddess inspired items, celestial or lunar things, faeries, fantasy, pretty things, cats, penguins, owls

Dislikes, Pet Peeves, Allergies, etc:
I'm intolerant to most scents, I'm ALLERGIC to artificial sweeteners (aspartame/nutrasweet and sucralose/splenda), nothing religious, plastick-y things, rough or itchy fabrics, I dislike hurtful or mean-spirited things too. Sarcasm is fine but mean is uncool.
