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.
My Facebook Artist page https://www.facebook.com/BhaktiCreationsbyAlexis/
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
I love opening my mailbox to Happy Mail, all those envelopes with stickers and drawings and stamps, yummy!
Things I like: I collect angels, Goddesses, cats, fairies, crystals, beach stones & driftwood, small boxes, Kwan Yin, boxes with drawers, oh and cats (again)
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
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 unhappy happy mail that smells like cigarettes, yucky
