About Me

I've just started a new group called Halloween Everyday in the USA! I want to start doing exclusively Halloween themed swaps and this is the perfect way to do that. Come on over and check it out!

My name is Joyce and I live in Jackson Heights New York City with my DH and where I work at a paper and craft store.

I am looking forward to trying my hand at a bunch of new paper crafts this year, including junk journals and explosion boxes!

I am a lover of bits and pieces, reuser of cool junk, queen of salvaged trash.AKA - Pack rat

Fall is my favorite season. I love the smell of cold air, the crunch of leaves under foot, and of course, Halloween, my favorite holiday

I believe a cup of tea will cure almost any bad mood. So will a good phone conversation with your best friend, sibling, or mom or dad.

I love collage and am getting back into paper arts.

Let's talk Halloween

My favorite holiday is Halloween, and I plan, prepare and craft all year round for it.

If I am your swap partner and you theme your swap for me with a Halloween theme, hearts will be forthcoming!

Please do not send candy of any kind - neither myself nor my husband can eat it.

I especially love Bats, Vampires (Anne Rice, not Twilight) Vintage themes, classic monsters. Cute things are ok, but nothing for children. And please, please, no fun foam shapes.

A quick side note - I am not a big fan of ugly witch images. I also love skulls, but not sugar skulls.

Favorite Books

Ah, well I certainly can't pick a favorite book but here are some of the writers I love Anne Rice, C.S. Lewis, Lewis Carroll, Richard Adams. I love Science Fiction and Fantasy. One of my favorite books is Watership Down by Richard Adams - I read it when I was 12 and then started collecting rabbits - I have over 100 now.

Favorite Movies

In no particular order - I am a huge Sci-Fi/Fantasy Geek so I love all Star Trek / Star Wars movies, as well as Princess Bride, The Holy Grail, Spaceballs, Nightmare before Christmas, Gross Pointe Blank, Serendipity, Brave. I am also a huge fan of Rocky Horror Picture Show!!!

Favorite Television

Love watching old episodes of Doctor Who and Monty Python. Not watching too many new shows, but I do like Gotham and IZombie.

Favorite Crafts

I love all kinds of paper crafts, but I don't scrapbook. I've started making art and junk journals to use up alll the great ephemera I own. I also love creating ATC's. I love making jewelry and working with all kinds of ribbons as well.

Favorite Music

I love all kinds of music, but since I am a child of the 80's, my favorite is new wave, industrial, punk and goth The Cure, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran. Loved them then and love them still Also love Irish music, Classical and Jazz


There are just a few things I'd rather not rather not receive. They are:

Foam shapes

Kid's crafts

Kawaii themes

Ugly witch images

Sugar Skulls Zombie themes

Perfumes or cosmetics

Anything religious themed

Also, again, please do not send candy of any kind. My husband and I cannot eat it.

I always pass on things that I don't use, so if the swap is not profile specific and you send me something on this list, don't worry, I never throw anything away.
