About Me

Hello.

I am fairly new at this swapping stuff, so if I mess up and do something incorrectly, please message me. I would appreciate being given the opportunity to resolve any issues before receiving a negative rating. I send all my mail directly from the post office, and I mark my swaps as "sent" after I have dropped them off at the post office.

I always rate my swaps as soon as I receive and open them. If I haven't rated you for a swap, it is because I haven't received it. I pick my mail up 2-3 times a week.

Please rate me after you have received my swap. No one should have to chase down ratings. It's difficult to get off the ground here at Swap-bot when you only receive ratings for some of your swaps....If I haven't rated your swap yet, it is because I haven't received it.***

I am new at paper arts, and not very skilled or talented at them, but I enjoy attempting to make them none-the-less.

I like books (lots of different genres), reading, libraries, old book stores, paper, paper crafts, mail art, collage, typography, numbers, dictionary pages, botanical items, "found" items (and art made from them), linen, cotton, maps, spirituality and movies. My favorite flower(s) are peonies, and my favorite colors are navy blue, maroon, and neutral colors like linen, cream, silver, and gray.

I like pretty papers in the colors mentioned above and interesting vintage papers for collage and ATC's. I like interesting bits of paper and card that can be used in gluebooks or collage.

I love spending time at the ocean and watching the ocean, the surf, the sky, and the stars. I don't know why I don't live closer to it, lol..

Favorite Music

I listen to all types of music. Some of my favorites are:

Frank Sinatra

Louie Armstrong

Bruno Mars

Dave Matthews Band

Carbon Leaf

Colbie Caillat

Jack Johnson

Norah Jones

Nina Simone

John Mellencamp (his older music)

Favorite Books

I read a lot of different types of books: fiction, non-fiction, childrens', YA, personal development, spirituality.

Two of my very favorite YA books are both by Kate DiCamillo:

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

and

The Magician's Elephant

Favorite Movies

I like a lot of different types of movies, too. I like:

animated movies

psychological thrillers

drama

independent movies

foreign movies

some comedy (not too raunchy)

classic Christmas movies,

and romantic comedies (Nora Ephron style)...

Favorite Television

This is Us

Better Call Saul

Friends

The Office

Survivor

Breaking Bad

The Big Bang Theory

Mad Men

Grey's Anatomy

Favorite Crafts

mixed media collage

ATC's (although I am fairly new at making these!)

gluebooks

book crafts

almost anything involving paper

clear or wooden stamps for inking (botanical/nature stamps)

craft clay

I like:

found objects and/or trinkets, and found bits of interesting paper.

typography/numbers

swiss crosses

books

my favorite colors are navy blue, ivory, silver, and light gray (light neutral colors).

Swap preferences:

If you receive my name in a postcard swap, I am perfectly okay with receiving an unsigned postcard in an envelope instead of a "naked" postcard (Is there a swapbot term for that?), and "naked" is fine, too.

Prefer NOT to receive: Tea or other edible consumables, paper napkins, teacher stickers, memo sheets, or note cards. Please do not send loose glitter or sequins which may spill over when removing contents from envelopes.
