About Me

I'm a wife to my best friend and mother to human and canine babies.

I like playing with collage, mixed media, hand carving rubber stamps, buying rubber stamps, owning more rubber stamps and paper than I can ever use, playing with my gelli plates, Sizzix die cutting machine and yeah, I like all that stuff and more.

I love that mailart has exposed me to many different styles, many different artists, many different perspectives.

I like exchanging naked handmade postcards and I usually do 5 x 7 inches in size. I find that size offers enough space to experiment while still being affordable to mail to someone. I like the postcards naked so the address, postage stamps and other postal markings are part of the piece.

I also enjoy making and trading ATCs. I meet with a local group to exchange ATCs monthly (Milwaukee ATC ).


If you're not into the rules at Swap-bot, perhaps you'd enjoy other sites such as International Union of Mail Art (IUOMA). While I try to be cool and layed back about deadlines and getting quailty items, basically I swap at Swap-bot because I enjoy the guarantees that the system provides.

Please don't send

*Postcards in see-through plastic bags. My post office charges me more for these and I always have postage due. Plus, I just don't like them.

*Please do not send Christmas or religious themed stuff.

*Please do not send babyish or preschool stuff such as Disney or Hummels or like that.

*Please no scrapbook/planner quotes like "Live, Love, Laugh."

*I don't mind extras though they're certainly not expected. I'd rather have you put that extra effort into the item you're sending me.

Thanks!

Comment: I received your postcard so many days ago, I can't remember how many, but judging from it's buried depth in the mess on my desk I'm guessing well over a week. Thanks for your great postcard Angie :-) There sure are a lot of images to pick out and look at in such a small space. The river/border (?) running across the width of it looks like a fat headless snake.

Comment: Oooh, love your orange card with the gold accents, Angie, and all those shapes and textures flowing together. Thanks so much. But any dream featuring 45 would be a nightmare in my opinion! Yikes!
