About Me

Due to my busy season with my business and helping my mom relocate, I am currently on hiatus from swapping for the month of October. I am a freelancer, property manager, personal assistant, and I help my husband with his home improvement business. In my free time I enjoy photography, road trips, and creating art. I love to shop at second hand stores, antique shops, and garage sales! I have a fascination with retro advertising and signs, and have started an instagram page dedicated to all of the old signs I photograph while on my road trips.

Comment: Great ATC. It made me smile! And I needed that today for sure. And I love your lettering on the envelope too—reminds me of the lettering on American Horror Story. My ATCs are collage based and love your skills and learning new ways to make things!

Comment: Thank you so much for the cheery coin! Love the colors and all your layering. What did you use to color your mini doilies? They are beautiful.
Response: You're welcome and thanks for the compliment. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Stain to add the colors. The doilies actually came from old fashioned place mats that were given to me not too long ago.
