About Me

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

Favorite Books

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.

Favorite Crafts

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.

Other Interests

I love to read and garden. Can’t wait for spring so I can put my hands in the earth.

Favorite Collections

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.

About Me

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

Comment: Hello dear Diane! The holidays became much happier for me today after receiving the absolutely delightful journal you created for me! I am so honored by all the work that you put into this gorgeous piece. So many lovely pieces of ephemera, pockets and tuck spots--and it was my absolutely guilty pleasure to remove all the little bits and oooh and aaah over them! Truly, I am very impressed by your journal-making prowess. Best of all, you went with birds! One of my BIG loves! There are also tons of nods to January in the journal--love the Edith Holden page and that January stationary, too. Many, many thanks for this amazing swap (it's actually more like a gift!). I hope we are partnered again very soon!
Response: I’m so glad you like the journal and especially the bird theme. Hope you have a happy new year.
