About Me

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my profile.

A happy new year to you! I am excited to be back swapping after a brief break over the Holidays. I won't be as active as I was last year and most of my swaps I will be hosting will be in my Halloween group.

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 working on several altered book art journals -one is Bee themed, the other is vintage rabbit themed. Any items sent that would work with these themes would be super appreciated and would certainly earn you hearts!

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.

I run a group here on Swap-bot called Halloween Everyday in the USA. Come visit, say hi, maybe stay awhile and swap with us!

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.


  • A - Alice In Wonderland (classic illustrations only) / ATCs / Anything Halloween
  • B - Bats / Bees / Bowie
  • C - Card making / Coins / Classic Monsters
  • D - Distressed surfaces / Dirigibles
  • E - Ephemera / Embossing
  • F - Feathers / Fangs
  • G - Gears / Ghosts / Gizmos
  • H - Halloween!!!!!
  • I - Inks / Italian papers
  • J - Journals / Jewelry making
  • K - Keys (Skeleton)
  • L - Letters / Lobsters / Lovecraft
  • M - Monty Python / Music sheets
  • N - Nightmare Before Christmas
  • O - Owls / Octopus
  • P - Paris / Postage Stamps / Poe / Paper
  • Q - Quidditch / Quills
  • R - Rabbits!!! / Rocky Horror Picture Show
  • S - Steampunk / Skulls / Stickers
  • T - Tim Burton / Tea parties
  • U - Umbrellas
  • V - Vampires / Vintage
  • W - Woodland creatures / Washi tape / Watch parts
  • X - Xyron (sticker maker and the 510)
  • Y - Yarn
  • Z - Zentangle

Movies and TV

  • 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!!!

  • TV: During these past few months, I have been binge watching several shows to keep me laughing - We love to watch "Nailed It" and "Whose line is it Anyway" one of my other favorites is Psych! and I enjoy Miracle Workers and The Good Place. My husband loves wrestling, and I sometimes enjoy watching along!

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 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

Tea Please!

I love all kinds of tea, but prefer mostly flavored black teas, with my favorite being Earl Grey. I also enjoy Chai teas and other spiced flavors. For herbal, I enjoy jasmine and chamomile.

The Hubby enjoys flavored green teas.

If I have any dislike, they would be anything Lipton brand (yuck) fruit zinger (too tangy), or decaf (why?)


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

Anything religious or political themed

Foam shapes!!!

Kid's crafts

Disney themes ( Nightmare Before Christmas the exception)

Anything with Santa on it

Sugar Skulls or Zombie themes

Perfumes or cosmetics

Lipton, Zinger, or Decaf Teas

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.

Comment: I love the beautiful dotee you made. Thank you. Hugs, Sandy
Comment: Everything was perfect! On the second through my goodies - I oohed and awed. Already used the foam dimensional s and glue dots. Told my DH to keep his hands off my candy bar. Put the tea in my travel stash (hope to travel sometime in 2021). My walking/running challenge group has a daily challenge today is hit chocolate- can’t wait to try it. The Zoom party was fun and great for a year we couldn’t go out. See you around Swapbot.

Comment: Sorry for the late rating--I was just using my stickers and realized I hadn't put the rating! Ack! They are wonderful, and I'm hanging up the card now that it's that time of the year!

banjobraids rated for Halloween Postcard Swap on Dec 5, 2020
Comment: There was no name on this lenticular card, but I'm pretty sure this was yours! I love it of course! Lenticulars are the best. This took a long time to make its way south, but I hope you enjoyed the fall season a little bit before it got too cold. I was just thinking about NY last night and pining for a visit. Maybe next year if it's safer. My poor cousin has been locked up in Brooklyn this whole time. I hope youre well and have a wonderful Dec! :):):) Thank you!
Response: Hmm, perhaps they put one of those bar code labels on the bottom and it covered over my name? If there is, you should be able to remove it. I hope your cousin was at least able to get out and take walks, even if they don't get to leave the neighborhood. Thanks for the rating and heart and be safe and well!
