I love anything vintage. I am currently engrossed in making junk journals and have a love of old paper, ephemera and old floral and botanical illustrations. Would love to swap some of my prized paper collection, including old stamps, gardening books, paper and much more. LIKES: Anything paper, vintage and botanical.. DISLIKES: Neon, tie dye and glitter
My favorite authors are: Barbara Kingsolver, Thrity Umrigar, Erik Larson, Joyce Carol Oates, Ruth Rendell...to name a few.....I am a voracious reader and could not possibly name all my favorite books.
Currently any craft involving paper. I love making books, art and junk journals and on occasion an assembledge piece. In the past I have made baskets, done some batiking, made cards, done origami, made quilts and have done quite a few sewing projects. I have recently started making ATCs.
I love to read and garden. Can’t wait for spring so I can put my hands in the earth.
Posrcards, old quilt fabric pieces, Alice in Wonderland books ( no, I do not cut them up for my journals), ephemera of all types, postage stamps, botanical books....and more.
JJJ-Let’s make a junk journal. This sounds like a very exciting swap. I mostly make “vintage” inspired junk journals. Lots of nature: flowers,birds,animals, mushrooms..I have recently tried adding a little more color to my journals-and especially love green,purple and blue..I love labels, vintage washi and stickers..Although I have never used a digital kit (printer and ink cost issues) I find myself loving some of Tracie Fox and Artymaze’s digital kits-especially the labels…who doesn’t love labels? I have also started experimenting with some eco-dyeing and recently dyed some paper using hibiscus..Also made some eco-prints using the flowers and leaves I have in my garden. I was pleased with the first attempt and will definitely be trying it again. Excited to start this swap. Items I am always grateful to receive: Handwritten ledger sheets Old envelopes Vintage looking washi and washi stickers Old postcard Old photos Eco dyed paper Labels Handmade paper Lace Any old ephemera Sari silk Small botanical illustrations
