About Me

I am a serial crafter, and like to try just about anything. I haven't really gotten into the whole sewing/knitting/fiber arts area, However, I would like to try creating a stitched fabric journal. I do like paper crafts, mixed-media, assemblage, jewelry-making, etc. I am trying to spend more time with my photography, both digital and analog.

Favorite Crafts

• Mixed Media

• Altered Books/Art Journals

• Assemblage

• Photography

• Card-making

• ATCs/Tags

• Trying out watercolor

Favorite Things

• Vintage/Flea Market items—interesting things that you don't find at the big box store

• Wings

• Clocks

• Old cameras

• Old Photos/Cabinet Cards

• Vintage Buttons/Trims

• Vintage Millinery trims

• Vintage papers

• Vintage Children’s books

• B&W Photography

• Travel

• London

• Typography (anything with letters and numbers; particularly the ampersand)

• Old Typewriters

• Letterpress

• Rulers/Measuring Tapes

• Locks/Keys/Skeleton Keys

• Dresden Trims

• Vintage Jewelry (I will even use broken pieces in my projects)

• Mercury Glass

• Vintage Industrial Rusty Things

• Animals

• Dogs (we have two Australian Shepherds)

• Mermaids (not super cutesy)

• Seahorses

• Narwhals

• Sea Turtles

• Starfish/Urchins/Coral

• Beach/Shells/Sea Glass

• Halloween (my favorite holiday!)

• Damask patterns

• Steampunk

• Krampus

• Tim Holtz

• Martha Stewart

• Rifle Paper Co.

• I'm a coffee drinker, and love flavored coffees.

NOTE: I am scent sensitive, so please nothing heavily fragranced.

Favorite Colors

• Ocean Colors: Blue, Teal, Aqua

• Black and White

• Navy and White or Silver

Holiday Likes

Valentine's Day: Conversation Hearts, vintage Beistle Honeycomb cards, vintage valentine postcards, hearts, more pink than red, probably the only time I like things a bit more frou-frou

Easter: rabbits, chicks, eggs, vintage postcards, Cadbury mini eggs, jelly beans

Halloween: vintage Halloween collectibles, paper-mache candy buckets, crows/ravens, witches, Poe, vampires, candy corn, B&W decor, spooky chic. I like macabre, but not over-the-top gorey...Edward Gorey is good though ;-). I have a small feather tree I put up, so mini ornaments are a great addition.

Thanksgiving: acorns, leaves, rustic pumpkins, wheat sheaths

Christmas: vintage Shiny Brite ornaments, D56 Dickens Village Historical Series, Radko glass ornaments, vintage Christmas decor. I don't do the traditional red and green decor, I mostly decorate with navy, silver, and white with pops of green. Since I live in Florida, beach or nautical themed Christmas items are perfectly fitting.

Swapping Philosophy

I strive to go beyond the swap requirements, and only send items that I would be thrilled to receive myself. I'm really appreciative of other swappers that have obviously put thought, time, and effort into their swap packages.

I always send out my swaps. If you do not receive anything from me, please let me know. I want you to be happy swapping with me. ;-)

I’d love it if swap coordinators followed up on the participants list for any non-senders…kinda goes along with the responsibilities of hosting a swap. We all know things come up, and a little communication goes a long way.

I will also try to rate quickly upon receiving a swap package so you know that I got it. I know the mail can take a while, and I will often be wondering if my packages have been received, particularly larger package swaps. Thanks for sending out that Happy Mail!

Got the Trick or Treat - September surprise when I returned from my trip. I might try to make a bag from the spider fabric and tucked the wrapped gift in my stocking to open for Hallows. You are amazing. Thanks

Hi! I'm LOVING opening my Halloween envelopes each day! The printed readables are wonderful and will make a great book at the end of the month when I put them all back in the envelope book. The gifts are awesome too!!! This is so much fun - thank you!

We are in the Countdown to Halloween swap together though may not be assigned as partners. I am reading profiles of folks in it with me as I make up my 30 envelopes. I know that writing something for each of them will take time and it feels worth it to me.

Christine!!! I was WOWED by your generous, incredible quality package of goodies!! I felt like a bit of a heel allowing you to send stamps in the first place but you took it to a point I just have to say, well lucky me! Enormous thanks for something you didn't even have to do. I'll be sure my partner is as happy, and I hope we partner up one day. I thank you and my Halloween stash thanks you! :OD
