About Me

  • I finally completed grad school, so I'm back to swap land. I'm currently working full time as a social worker in a women's health clinic. I'm actively trying to do good in the world through being in a helping profession!

  • Please, please , please contact me before rating me with a low number if you don't receive your swap. I send them out, but sometimes they do get lost. I'm more than happy to re-send to make sure you get your swap! ^__^

  • I love to explore beadwork. I mainly use seed beads, but I love large, funky beads. Plastic beads with a flat back that have interesting detail are neat, but I don't like pony beads or dull colors. Cabochons and other trinkets with flat backs such as fun buttons are great! I love to use oddities in my art. I have competed twice in a DIY beard competition with beards that were fully beaded. I took first place the last time, hoping to repeat that in 2020.

  • Trained in darkroom photography and metalsmithing. I love keeping my hands busy creating. If I had my druthers, I would have a studio to pursue these hobbies, however I do not. That's why I bead, sew, and do a few other things in my very spare time. However, I love creating things for people, so I'm hoping to participate in a few more of the handmade items swaps! I have taught myself how to hand bind books and small notebooks. I love doing that, but I don't do it as often as I can.

  • Cats are my absolute favorite animals. I currently have five cats, Zapp Brannigan, Ginger, Callie, Snickers, & Wendy. They're each silly and special in their own unique ways. I love cat themed items, and I consider myself a bit of a cat lady.

  • In my spare time I dig catching live music, a movie from time to time, and hitting up one of the several amazing parks near me. I like being outside when the weather is decent! I also love coffee and volunteering at my local, community farmers' market. I keep busy, but I find time to create!

  • Let's see, the more creative the swap, the more I'm probably going to like it. I'm a crafter at heart and appreciate handmade items! I hope to be able to participate in some swaps like that at some point in time.

  • No allergies that I know of. Chocolate is one of my best friends, haha. I love bright and colorful things, the brighter the better usually.

  • I know this is a disjointed profile, but it's just how I roll. I love people, I love crafting, and I just want to participate and enjoy swapping!

  • Most importantly,I get so excited to send and receive snail mail! Each envelope or package is always such a treat, and I like to think that I can put a smile on someone else's face by participating! I love receiving mail art. I just made my first minizine and the swap host said they were addictive. She was correct, and I'm looking forward to making more.

  • I've started making ATCs, and I freaking adore them! However, I'm not one who embellishes them with all the bells and whistles, I'm a good old sharpie/watercolor/paint kind of gal when I make mine. Just wanted to get that out there so no one can't say I didn't warn them! Mine are typically all HD/HP. :)

  • I try to get my swaps out as quickly as possible. I do not flake, and I hope no one does on me. However, I realize this probably happens more often than not. I won't be one of those folks, so no worries here.

Comment: I absolutely ADORE this piece! Thank you so much! A perfect illustration for that quote. I actually got to meet (and assist) Carey Elwes at our local SF con a few years ago. Really classy guy and super nice, too! I have read Confederacy of Dunces. Loved it and Vonnegut too. Have you read The Library Book by Susan Orlean? I'm recommending that to anyone who loves books. Really interesting NF book. Thanks again for the piece and the lovely note! It definitely made me smile!

Comment: I love my new TPB patch so much! You did an excellent job! I love the fabric, the stitching of the text, the beading, and the border stitching. Thank you so much for a great swap!
Response: I am so excited you like it. I'm telling you, while I was watching lightning struck. Makes me want to really practice my lettering more and to just make more patches. :)
Comment: Thanks for another animal! haha The frog is great and I like the simple color scheme - totally different from my other pieces so far! I don't think I would have even realized this was a Halloween card if you hadn't said so! And I looooove the Bigfoot mini zine! Hilarious! Thanks for a fun swap :)
