About Me


I rate every swap as it comes in. If you think I should have received from you and I haven't rated, please let me know. If I chose not to rate for some reason, I will contact you about the reason.

I have sent late exactly once in my years here. I usually send quite early. If you haven't received from me, please, please let me know. I'll do everything in my power to make it right.



I love to eat and love to craft!

I am totally not a girly-girl! I live in Jeans and T-shirts.

I live in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. I am 40ish years old and work in costuming in the theatre.

I recycle or "up-cycle" EVERYTHING! I see new uses and projects in so-called trash. Including packaging! I can't throw away a bubble envie that has only been used once!

I do mostly fabric crafts and collage. Sometimes I use all fabric so that I don't loose the hand of the fabric for ATC.

I can't draw unless you want stick figures; I can do a mean stick figure. :)

Things I Love

I love handmade.

I have been doing lots of ATC's. Love creating those little pieces of art!

I love dragons, dragons, dragons, gargoyles, fairies, mermaids, octopi, Celtic art, Mythological creatures, old school "oops" style pinup girls, Alice in Wonderland, and did I mention dragons. :)

I love jewelry - pierced ears, 7ish inch bracelets, any length necklace (not smaller than 16"), size 7-7 1/2 ring. But I don't wear flowery, Disney or girly themed things. I prefer silver findings to gold.

I especially like any candy or snack or food things that are special to an area (example: chilie candy=New Mexico). I LOVE to try really different snacks.

I don't like those soft gummy candies or black licorice.

I love chocolate, and most all candies! Though chocolate is problematic to send to me May-November! I am in the tropics.

I love fun patterned fur.

I love dark colors (black, purple, maroon, blue, etc). I am not a pastel girl unless it is like pink mixed with a funky black motif. Don't like pink or muddy greens.

I love fun clothing and clothing accessories, and of course purses (smaller ones with straps that sit just under the arm for going out).

I collect tiaras, Hum-Vees (H1 only), interesting necklaces and earrings, 1976 Quarters (Bicentennial)

I'd love to have some die cuts. I don't have a machine, but love to craft with the ones that have been sent to me. I especially like the ones that are lace or have open areas like bamboo or edges.

I also love to receive ATCoin blanks. I haven't invested in a cutter yet, so ATCoin blanks are always welcome.


I don't like scented things (like soap, lotion, potpouri, etc). Nor do I wear makeup.

I am not the biggest fan of things overly "cutesie" (big eye dolls and kids, etc). Disney is not my favorite, but I'm easy going.

Favorite Movies

Action pics, Comedies, James Bond, Hellboy, Serenity

Favorite Television

Psych, Dirty Jobs, How It's Made, Firefly, Eureka, Scooby Doo, Bones, Futurama, Lie to Me, Warehouse 13, Supernatural, Murder She Wrote

Favorite Crafts

I have really gotten into ATC's lately. Really having fun with that.

I do a lot of sewing, general crafts, found object sculpture, Doll recons

I make a lot of jewelry.

I cook a lot. But I do not bake much - can't have the stuff around the house!

Favorite Books

Anything by Tom Robbins, The Three Musketeers series, Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass

Favorite Music

Heavy Metal, Classic Rock, Classical, Scissor Sisters, Nina Simone

Things I'm looking for

Right now I am looking for the following things for projects I have brewing.

Please message if you'd like to set up a private swap!


Halloween embellishments for ATCs: washi tape samples, buttons, brads, fussy cuts, die cuts, smaller stamped images (especially on tissue paper), etc

Christmas embellishments for ATCs: same idea as above

ATC embellishments in 3s. I'm into doing a lot of ATC JAMS lately and need 3 of things.


Right now I am also collecting specific ATCs and ATCoins in the following themes:

  • Dragons (non cutesie)
  • The Emerald City
  • Mythical Beasts (non cutsie)
  • Mermaids and Fairies (non cutsie)
  • Celtic Knot work

SMT ~ This or That TAG

You are so sweet! Thank you for the adorable handmade ATC sleeves and a big thank you for the B&N Gift Card! What a generous gift to send and to help out with my Grab Bag Learning. I guess I have mentioned it to you that I own GBL, because I don't remember. Thank you so much for thinking of me!

Hugs to you! Pam
