If I put my mind to something, it happens. I do know that's not necessarily psychic. But I always feel like there's something around me protecting me.
Books are challenging and inspirational to me.
I like crafts that are made out of necessity because they're a little naive - you made it because you needed it.
My mom used to say that Greek Easter was later because then you get stuff cheaper.
My favorite things often have a story behind them and are usually handmade or discovered at a flea market.
I have always wanted a bunny and I'll always have a rabbit the rest of my life.
We're all used to seeing pretty people. I want to see real people.
My father and I have a very good relationship. We always got along. But I always scold him.
I always liked my teachers, and I was in a lot of after-school projects. I was a Girl Scout until my senior year, when I couldn't be a Girl Scout anymore. I was in clubs like Junior Achievement, and I ran track and field. My grades were good, but then toward 11th grade they were nothing. I always went to summer school.
Sometimes, to keep things exciting, I decorate my house as if I owned a child. I'll toss a tiny pair of shoes in the hallway or lean small wooden crutches in what I refer to as 'the baby's room,' which is actually a tiny space where I make things. I continue to call it the baby's room because it confuses people and it's creepy.
But I always like to play ugly people who think they're pretty.
You know when you watch old movies, it's always the small parts you remember, the character actors who come in like a breath of fresh air.
I'm gonna do the whole bedroom in camel color - it's an old lady color.
I never really take shortcuts. I was always one of those people who, instead of cutting across someone's yard on the way home from school, I would go to the end of the block and turn.
When people tell me they are going to go scrapbooking, I say, 'Why don't you make it yourself.' It's like chocolate-chip cookies. People buy the cookie-dough roll and slice it, and then they lay it on a cookie sheet. That's not making chocolate-chip cookies.
I like to decide the night before Thanksgiving that I'm gonna do it, and I'll see what riff raff is around. Then I get that last-minute surge of energy. But if I had two weeks to plan, sometimes I wish I wasn't doing it. But very seldom does that happen.
I want witchcraft so bad that I can't stand it. I have wands in my apartment. And I use them sometimes. I walk into the kitchen with my wand, and I come out with something on a platter and I say, 'See, magic happens.' Works every time.
More men than women like 'Strangers With Candy'. Pretty girls don't like the show. They don't like to see an ugly lady.
I wasn't a cliquey person, and I think that's because I came from a large family. I got along with everybody, and I usually got along with the people that people didn't like.
I like crafts that come out of poverty or necessity. There used to be hobby shops where you'd get your supplies, and then you'd use your imagination.
