About Me

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.

My motto:

Stay Curious About Tomorrow

Hope Always

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/

Favorite Crafts

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

My likes list

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

Stocking Stuffer Swaps

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

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

Comment: I love all the goodies you sent. Thank you. How did you do the marblng? I've done paint pouring on canvas; am now thinking I could try doing it on heavy cardstock or watercolor paper. So many ideas; so little energy!
Response: I am glad you liked it! Thank You for the rating and the Heart! The marbling was done with Easy Marble from Marabu, I got it from Artarama online.

I was finally able to find a good place to abandon your craft from the Art/Craft Abandonment Swap. It was left at Lucky's Steakhouse.
