About Me

Hello!

My name is Michelle. I live in (mostly) sunny California with my husband and my twin toddlers. I enjoy handicrafts, travel, reading, and MAIL! I have my degree in History of Art and Visual Culture from UC Santa Cruz (GO BANANA SLUGS!), but love working with children. Currently a stay-at-home mom.

I am an avid Postcrosser, LWA member and pen pal. :-)

I love mice, hedgehogs, bumblebees, mermaids, sea horses, otters, maps, stickers, washi tape, and glitter. I'm inspired by a lot of artists from my college studies, especially Klimt, Camille Rose Garcia, Frida Kahlo, Kandinsky, and children's book illustrators.

UPDATE: Husband and daughters are vacationing with me to Seattle, Olympia, and Portland in September 2017. Have you been? Do you live there? Let me know any travel suggestions you have, or a list of Must Visit places. Thanks!

Like to Receive

I am very new to ATC's and flipbooks. If you like making them and I have signed up for an open-ended swap I would love to build my collection of them and get more inspiration on what to make for my own.

If you are wondering what to send me in a swap, I am fairly easy to please. Just show that you put a little effort into sending me something that you yourself would like to receive. I always like hearing why you sent me what you did, something that we may have in common, a strange fact or secret about you, or what you had for breakfast.

Always open to direct swaps, just send me a message!

Comment: Thank you for decorating the card! We'll be seeing the full solar eclipse here, and many hotels have been booked for this event two years in advance. Is madness here!
Response: That would be so cool to live near the eclipse path, unless you didn't care and had to deal with all those people! ;-P I'll be taking care of a neighbor's cat this month so they can go on an "Eclipse Vacation"! Best wishes!!

Comment: Great ATC! And I will definitely use the Boynton paper on an art journal page. I miss the days when Hallmark had a whole line of notepads, mugs, etc. with her cute drawings.
Response: I would definitely use Boynton notepads! I love her calendar and I used to have her sheet set too!

Comment: Yes, MIchelle. Quite often the same people sign up for similar swaps, so you tend to send to the same people often. Thanks for the PC.

Comment: I knew this swap would be special from the details on the outside. Perfect envie, penmanship (yes, as a writer, I pay attention to things like that haha) and stamp! But the inside even better, which doesn't happen often. Such great things, including the handmade paper, unique stamps and, of course, the palmistry patch. Totally unique and special. If you'd ever like to do a private swap, let me know. I'd love it.
Response: I'm so thrilled that you enjoyed everything! It's always nice to know that things you love are going to an owner who will appreciate them :-) AND YES!!! I would love to do private swaps with you...feel free to message me with ideas on what you would like to swap!
