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.

*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.
