Greetings and Welcome to My World!
I am 60 and I love to create, it's the only time my bipolar mind is at peace.
I am single with 3 cats, Willow, Honey and Shelby.
I live in Smyrna, GA USA and have lived in GA for over 40 years. I was born in Ashtabula, OH near Lake Erie, and I love beach stones and driftwood.
I am new to Swap-bot but not to swapping. I first found and joined Swap-bot in 2015 but never participated until April of this year.
Stay Curious About Tomorrow
To remind me that even though today it seems senseless to go on, tomorrow things can change, so just hold on, one day at a time, one hour at a time, whatever it takes.
Feel free to adopt and share this phrase with others.
I am open about my life challenges with Bipolar2, depression and anxiety, and available to talk about it anytime. We have enough to deal with the stigma from the outside world without having to deal with our own inner battles of awareness
I can't seem to get the links section to work, so here are my pages, sorry you have to copy and paste them in.

I don't keep this Facebook page up much, but it gives you an idea of what I like to do
My Pinterest page https://www.pinterest.com/thepotterylady/
My main art form is stone ware pottery, it is part of most every other creation that I do.
I like altered art, assemblage, mixed media collage, ATC's (mini collages!) handmade cards, and to stretch my abilities with different forms by doing artistic swaps
I am a member of a Facebook altered art swap group always looking for new members that want to be active participants, if you are interested message me
Some of the swaps I have participated in are, altered cigar box, ribbon doll, junk doll, altered blocks, dominos and jenga pieces, altered keys, and mason jars
My likes list
I love opening my mailbox to Happy Mail, all those envelopes with stickers and drawings and stamps, yummy!

Colors - jewel/peacock tones, earth tones, favorite color - purple (all shades), all colors with the exception of red
I like sparkly, cruelty-free, natural, gaia, metallics, textures, triangles, spirals, organic, talismans and amulets, symbology, Celtic, Egyptian
I don't draw, paint or sew, so I am especially appreciative of Artists who do and especially enjoy receiving these types of artwork
My personal passion and main creative outlet is Art Pottery, my favorite potter, George E Ohr, the Mad Potter of Biloxi
CHRISTMAS & STOCKING STUFFERS SWAPS ~~~~~(I am so Loving these swaps, I sign up for every one I see on Swap-bot)~~~~~
I love receiving handmade creations, so if a Christmas or Stocking Stuffer calls for store bought items, feel free to send me handmade instead.
I enjoy hand made cards
Anyone with talent in drawing, painting or sewing, are especially welcome as these are things I don't/can't do
Altered Art and Assemblages of all kinds
Handmade Jewelry items (I send lots of these out in swaps since it is a favorite art form of mine)
If store bought is your thing then I like:
Stickers (Dollar Tree ones are great, especially the dimensional ones!)
Craft smart paints from Michael's ($.70) or any acrylic paints, satin, frost pearl
Ribbons and laces (Dollar Tree and Michael's have inexpensive ones)
Colors - jewel/peacock tones, earth tones, favorite color - purple (all shades), all other colors with the exception of red
Those inexpensive ($1-3) wooden ready to paint items at Michael's checkout area
Please no food items, no tea, no lotions, soap, etc, unless they are cruelty free, no leather, feathers, etc I am not a fan of Washi tape, but so many are that I just pass it on to them!
Dislikes Themes I am not a fan of - beachy, skull/bones, scary, disney, too cutesy
Please no food items, no tea, coffee, cocoa, etc No leather, fur or feathers. No lotion, soaps, etc unless they are cruelty free
No unhappy happy mail that smells like cigarettes, yucky
