I haven't been on Swap-bot for a while, but I'm slowly getting back in the groove.
I live just outside of the city of New York. I am a consultant but work full-time most days in NYC.
I am a dog lady.
I like altered art, repurposed things, making the old into something new. Paper and boxes make me happy. I love odd and strange stuff. I like imagery of women, but not sentimental or prissy ones. I like mermaids, but I'm not big on fairies or angels. Love a nice goddess. I like textures of all kinds; I'm very tactile. I like gadgets and computers (I'm a tech geek). I am an animal lover, with a particular soft spot for giraffes (tiny giraffes!) and elephants.
I am always interested in seeing other peoples' art. Whatever you make, whatever inspires you, I want to see it!
I have a strange fondness for anthropomorphizing inanimate objects, especially from old cookbooks (like smiling eggplants or dancing wooden spoons).
If you send me a pamphlet cookbook from before 1960 with a woman on the cover, I'm yours forever.
More stuff I like:
Themes or designs I like:
Things that are not ever welcome in my house:
Things I don't care for or have no use for:
I am also not a fan of babies with wings, or babies in dunce caps, or babies dressed in cute outfits to look like something else (Anne Geddes stuff), or that sort of thing. (Nothing against babies per se!).
ALLERGIES: I am allergic to cats, dogs (yes, I have dogs, but they are hypoallergenic -- some breeds are worse than others for me), mold, dust and cigarette smoke. Oh, and coconut. I'd appreciate your efforts to keep my swaps relatively free of the things that make me wheeze (especially the cat hair!). So, you know, just don't smoke while petting your cat and making my swap in a damp basement, and I"ll be okay.
I make ATCs, digital collage, altered art, photography, rubber stamped things, matchbook shrines and other kinds of paper art.
I like a lot of crafts I'm not good at. I will try any craft once.
I really like scavenger hunts!
