My Mixed Media Art (spoiler)


SwapPal wanted

I would love to find a swapfriend for private swapping: any mailart, mixedmedia …. all kind of paperart and stuff we cán sent in envelopes. If you are looking for the same please send a message.


Just a hint for using a protection sleeve:

I always glue the stamp on the card, go to the postoffice to put the datestamp on it and THEN I insert the card into the protection sleeve. So I have both: protection and a naked sent card.

If you glue the stamp outside on the protection sleeve stamp and datestamp will go lost after removing the sleeve. So it`s the same like sending in an envelope and not sent naked anymore.


Just a short note:

Our postoffice closes friday at 12.30 pm and opens again on monday. There is no mail pick up during this time or on bankholidays. So my envelopes may carry a later datestamp than my sent date says, because I click sent after I put them into the mailbox, if I don`t need to meet the postmistress.

A little something

I`m in my fifties, a quilter for 20 years.

A while ago I felt in love with paper crafting, mixed media and especially with mailart. I love to do collages, to play with colours and materials.

I spent a lot of time being creative and I always put time and effort in my swaps.
Making my art is very important for me.
I always read the profile from my swap-partner, hopefully to find something I can use for the swap, especially when the swap says sender`s choice.
Therefore I appreciate that my swappartner will do the same for me.
Honestly I have to say …. I always will give hearts for the swap, not for the extras, which are not necessary.
