Things I like

I am a textile artist and button maker from the Highlands of Scotland. I usually work in textiles but have developed a love for paper collage. You can see my work here https://www.instagram.com/mcanaraks/ and my blog here https://www.mcanaraks.com/blog/ I will post all of my handmade postcards here.. https://www.flickr.com/photos/mcanaraks/albums/72157709054199818

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy textile art, mixed media, tw/inchies ,collage, , photography, hand embroidery. I enjoy taking part in collaborative art projects.

things I like

I like vintage, old, distressed, abstract, found objects, buttons, driftwood, textures, pattern. handmade, one-off, quirky, wabi-sabi, hand stitching. I like interesting stamps, I always save them to use in future projects. I like paper ephemera with text in languages other than English. I prefer arty postcards rather than photos of your hometown. I would like to know your favourite word or phrase. I LOVE to receive handmade postcards.

things I'm not so keen on

Not keen on cutesy, religion, cartoons, Disney. I'm not keen on multiview photo postcards of places. I prefer art postcards to tourist postcards, but an arty representation of your town would be great.
