About Me

*** I rate the same day or the very next day after I receive a swap. If I have not rated you, I did not receive it. Send me a PM and we can discuss it.

***I mark as sent as soon as I package a swap and put it in my mailbox. This may mean the postmark is the next day or two depending on my mailperson's timing.

Long time crafter. I run a meetup group and have crafting events several times a month. I do a lot of different crafts, from various paper crafts (card making, quilling, mixed media) to polymer clay, painting, to abstract line drawing in ink, to crochet. Probably paper crafting is some of my favorite. Along with altered items such as altoid tins, assemblage items, and shadowboxes using recycled and found objects.

Interested in personal swaps for crafted items?

Things I can make for you: quilled items, note cards, junk journals, ATCs, crocheted items. and paper crafts of all kinds, polymer clay miniatures Things I'd like to receive: - tote bags/grocery bags, (I love bags of all sorts) - zippered pouches - receipt wallets - paperless paper towels or napkins - ATCs, inchies, twinchies, other mixed-media art - any paper craft - cotton dishcloths.


I have cats and love animals (HUGE spider phobia though). I love coffee and tea and cooking. I love the Discworld series, I like retold fairy tales (Mercedes Lackey, Robin McKinley) I am a huge sci-fi / fantasy person.
shows I like: stargate, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Star Trek, The Big Bang Theory I play lots of strategy board games and am an on-again/off-again World of Warcraft player. I run a craft group, a sci-fi book club, and a board gaming group.

Things and themes I like:

  • I am collecting Herb themed ATCs for a collage for my kitchen. I would love some more to help fill it up. So far I have Sage, Rosemary, Lemonbalm, Corriander, and Tansy
  • flowers, butterflies, animals (esp cats and peacocks), nature in general
  • cheerful colors
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • fairies and Fairy tales ( esp Sleeping Beauty
  • steam punk
  • vintage / shabby chic

  • book pages
  • anything I can use in the making of assemblage / altered art / ATCs
  • I would appreciate any bird or butterfly pictures, die cuts, or stamped images
  • Lately I have been into making postage stamp people ATCs so any used postage stamps with faces would be great
  • old keys

Things I would like either store bought or homemade

(I love homemade stuff - even if it's not perfect, if you tried, then I will love it!) I am open to receiving all types of items but I especially like bags of all types and organizer type things.

  • candy - no coconut or licorice and nothing that would melt between the months of April to October

I got the most super fun baggie of random awesomness in a tag from the TIAZ group. You sent some great stuff, and I am totally in love with those horse stickers.. Those are heading for my Hoarder drawer, for sure, lmao. I may have to keep them for a while before I use them, lol
