About Me

2/6/24. PLEASE I do not know why some of my mail (sent at the same time) is arriving on time and some is very late. I have contacted my post office about this more than once. Im very organized, always mail my swaps early and never flake on a swap. I know it is frustrating, but please cut me some slack bc this is out of my control.

I am usually early in mailing out trades. If you haven't received mine in a decent amount of time, please let me know. I try to make every trade a happy one for YOU! If it is late, it is definitely the mail system.

Hi! My name is Deborah, and I am 54 years old. I have three adult children and two grandchildren, one of which was born July 2023. I have had several serious health issues including cancer, sepsis, and a time on life support. As a result, I consider family, friends, and making new friends the #1 blessing in my life. I'm a very easygoing person, and I do not sweat the small stuff. I am not easily offended. I believe in putting kindness out in the world.

Making art is therapeutic for me and it makes me very happy to share the things I create/collect and hopefully brighten someone's day. These swaps are meant to be FUN. I'm not here to read postmarks or to critique art skills.

Right now I am working on the following crafts: artist trading cards, learning to collage, mixed media, gelprinting, acrylic painting classes, art journaling, and beginner junk journaling.

These are craft Items I love to receive in swaps:

💗Any washi (esp red & white, floral or glitter)

💗Small fabric scraps or scraps of lace

💗Music paper

💗Pdt labels, swap slips, or any fun mail stickers

💗Punchies (punched out) of any kind, I love them all!

💗flower punchies punched out any sizes I'm so happy to receive just a couple of them as inspiration.

💗Tags, pockets, etc that YOU made, to go in my eclectic journal. If you created it in your style, I will treasure it.

💗your stamped images on white cardstock or book pages

💗Collage ephemera, words, images, or everyday found pieces that you think are cool. (Feel free to add a note telling me why you chose a piece if you wish.)

💗Anything you think a crafting newbie needs. Im happy with anything you send

💗 wallpaper samples, paint sample cards

💗Any small foreign currency would be a wonderful treat for my grandson or nephews

💗Postcards! I enjoy touristy, artsy, vintage, homemade. I love them all. I would also be ecstatic to receive a postcard with your favorite recipe, a book/song recommendation, info about your town. If you are interested in regular, private pc swap, please message me.

💗 Any die cuts that would help a beginner card maker

LIKES: I like many themes not limited to: florals, nature, cats, butterflies, hearts, sparkly things, elephants, tacos, coffee, cardinals. I love Dina Wakley media, Tim Holtz, Echo Park. My art style is very eclectic and often messy art. I love all the colors.

Please DON'T SEND list: NO puffy or foam stickers(too fat for my journal). NO Harry Potter NO Dark, Gothic, or Morbid. I either have too much or I dont use in my artwork.

Comment: Thank you for all the goodies and your lovely note. I just bought a new cookbook, Grist by Abra Berens. Cook one pot of grain for the week and then variations throughout the week, including a little bit of meat. I think you'd like it.
Response: Thank you so much for the recommendation. My dietician told me to include grains in portions and it has totally worked. Have a great weekend!
