My life recently changed a lot, and I now work 3 jobs (one full-time, two part-time), so I have very little time for crafting and swapping. Apologies to founders of the groups I’m in, that I can’t join as many swaps as I’d like. This, combined with the many recent tech troubles on swap-bot, makes me think it's a good time for a short swapping hiatus.
I've got: three jobs I love; a long, healthy marriage; a big, happy family; lots of pets (4 cats, 2 black labs, 1 white lab/heeler mix); freedom; many daily laughs; an abundance of crafting resources.
My word and focus for 2018 is "JOY."
.... and a lot more things, but I'm choosing not to list them all here. I'm pretty much open to anything (with the exception of the things I mention below), and I like to see your personal aesthetic.
I don't have a definite artistic style, but I enjoy dabbling in a lot of things, with all kinds of media. I'm a big fan of Tim Holtz and like using his products to get less vintage-y results (although I do appreciate the vintage style). I love swaps where I learn new ways to use his inks and paints.
I'm a newbie to the world of the Silhouette Cameo 3 and am very open to tips and advice! I have a Cricut Easy Press so I can make t-shirts, but I've been somewhat intimidated by the Cameo, and then there's the whole working 6 days a week gig I've got going on, so not much time to learn and practice. Ugh.
Despite my crazy schedule, in 2018, I want to learn to:
1. use the Cameo
2. use my gelli plate
3. hand-carve stamps
I don't collect postcards, so when I join a PC swap, it's usually for what you write on the back. (Excluding hand-crafted or -colored PCs.) I don't have any preferences for what's on the front, as long as it's not on my dislike list (below). You can send your junky cards that no one wants to me. :)
I learned to sew years ago, and have made everything from quilts to cloth diapers to purses to apparel to home decor. I may or may not have a problem with collecting sewing machines and sergers.... I'm a Bernina groupie.
TV: I don't have time to watch much TV, but when I find something I like on Netflix, I tend to binge watch 2-3 episodes at a time until I'm through the whole series. I'm always open to suggestions.
I'm currently watching: This Is Us (season 2)
I would appreciate not receiving anything with the following themes or motifs:
