About Me

Please message me if you have not received a swap from me, I always send my swap out the day they are assigned or the next day. I rate the same way, the day I receive or the next day.

I live in the small coastal town of Beaufort, North Carolina with my Husband and three four-legged kids. I have lived most of my life by the beach and love all things about it. I work at an Aquarium full time and my hobby is my part time job. I am a upcycle artist and sell at our local farmers market.

Things I love:

My pets (cat, dog, & tortoise), Art, Crafting, Upcycling, Vintage, Thrift Shops, Vegetables, Wine, Friends, Bike rides, & Snail Mail

Favorite Music

Punk, 70’s, 80's, 90's, Alternative, Pop Punk, Girl Power, Classical, Beach Music, Oldies... I like almost any music.

Favorite Movies

Napoleon Dynamite, Shag, Harold & Kumar, Hunt for Red October, Pretty in Pink, 16 Candles, Clockwatchers, and many more.

Favorite Crafts

I make jewelry and other things out of upcycled materials. I love to do anything art or craft related!

Anything I make that has a reused element on it will have a green recycle symbol on the back so you will know.

My current art addiction is Artist Trading Cards. I like to do small watercolor paintings on them. My collection is growing and I am always up for ATC swaps. See my Flickr link above to see some of the ATC's I have made.

Favorite Television

I really enjoying watching the original shows by Hulu, Netflix, & Prime.

Dislikes

I appreciate everything that is sent to me and love anything that is handcrafted. I enjoy the surprises.

I prefer not to receive Disney, cinnamon scented or flavor, religious items, and holiday decorations.

Wishlist

vintage books, jewelry findings, beads, papers, old stamps, ATC's, ATC blanks and background papers, vintage ephemera, note cards, postcards, die cuts that I can use in gelli printing, anything handmade (art & crafts), teas of any flavor (I am up for trying anything once), rubber/acrylic stamped images on different papers.

Comment: 😂 My mother would certainly agree with you about Peeps being a food too! Thank you for sharing this cool blue sheet of clear something-or-other too! It reminds me of overhead transparency sheets I used when I was a teacher! Whoa. Long time ago! Anyway, it so looks like water so I am eager to explore its creative uses now...hmmm 🤔 Will get your JAMS moving along shortly ;-)
Response: It is totally an overhead transparency sheet, I found a stack of them in 4 different colors at my local thrift store. If you would like anymore let me know and I will send some your way.

Comment: You WOW me, yet again! Thank you for sharing this box of greatness, Aimee! I am impressed with the level of creativity you’re investing into your craft & how cleverly you up cycled “trash” into useful items! My bad for assuming it was simply “art” stuff you made using odds and ends. These are more than just ornamentals and I am thoroughly grateful to you for not only sharing with me, but also caring for our planet so well!!! Please keep up the truly good works! I look forward to supporting your small business more in the future too!💖👍🏼 The Scoutmaster handbook is pristine for being a 1972 edition too! I’m keeping this one intact for reference!!! No artsing with these pages just yet 😉
