I love this site and the joy it brings! I try to send quality swap packages, and hope for the same in return. I love to create and give. I send out all swaps on time, so if you haven't received something from me, please contact me!

badge every swap I receive (or don't receive!) It may take a few weeks but I will rate you or contact you if your swap has not arrived. There is no need to message me. I want to make your experience swapping on this site a good one.

About Me

I'm mostly interested in exchanging art and handmade items. I am a paper artist, I am not a scrapbook-er.

Also, I am not easily offended.


Hearts and Extras:

I give hearts for swaps that makes my heart sing, extras have nothing to do with it.



I LOVE foreign run of the mill envelopes, paper bags, stationery etc.

Matchbox Art: I don't care for filled matchboxes ...so feel free to DECORATE the inside instead. There used to be lot's O swaps with decorated insides, but not so much any more. I promise I won't rate a 3 for not filling the box if the inside is decorate. I just don't like/want that tiny stuff inside.

I love inexpensive fountain pens with ink, shrines, matchbox art, rocks, assemblage art, hand decorated paper, bento, handmade books, beaded items, needle books, digital art, handmade wallets/purses/bags, art dolls, creative writing, bowls, pottery, glass, zines, graphic arts, felted items, handmade ephemera, and handmade household items, die cut words and nature items, and snarky remarks. Any Stampington magazine new, or old.

I like retro (not vintage,) coffee, clean lines, modern, Christian religion, urban, Angels, bizzarro, quirky, clever, strange, off beat and dark humor. I like mermaids, burro’s, gnomes, the moon, Cats (Pets, not tigers, lions, etc), Quarter Horses,robots, the Northern Lights, dreams, sci fi, water, snow, storms, the woods, lightning, birch trees, Lake Superior, violets, lilly of the valley, lilacs, Hello Kitty, Charlie Brown and his crew, Black Watch tartan, and craftsman style, Stampotique and delusions style.

I like highly saturated colors, not pale or pastel colors. I like cool blue, turquiose, tan, purple,....beachy colors. I like orange and dark pink.

I LOVE glass, paper, and ribbon beads. Small holed, CUTE, wood, and (yuck) plastic beads will get the heave ho at my house.

I have pierced ears, and prefer silver to gold. I have small wrists. Bracelets around 7" fit me best.


No hearts here....PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE ... No scraps of paper (specialty or plain), pencils, Stamped images, ball point pens, sharpie markers, erasers, books, pages from books, sheet music, coffee mugs, tags, playing cards, loose sequins, little do dad's for art, confetti, dollar store/discount items, ankle socks, Doo Wap or 50's items, small stickers, Disney, food, tea, candy, lotions, makeup, scents, plastic beads, wood beads, or consumables. Thank you but, I'm not interested in run of the mill paper from the US including pads of paper, and sticky notes.

CUTE, country or scrapbook styles. I prefer wilder, creative, bold, elegant, and thought provoking art.

I don't care for Pastel colors, and rust.

Extras - Thank you but, I have too much STUFF! I like to keep things purposeful, beautiful and simple.

I dislike people putting children's personal medical issues on the World Wide Web.

I don't like dirty, used, clean out your stash left overs! Although I would love to have a cigarette (I quit ages ago,) I don't like the smell on swap item.

I snarl at swaps that do not identify swap-bot, the name of the swap and swapper. I am in a lot of swaps. It's hard to figure out where a swap package came from with out your help!

OK, thank you for reading that!
