8.28.20 Mail update...I do my very best to measure, weigh and stamp envelopes with the most accurate postage. I've been professionally processing mail for more than 20 years. With that said every post office worker processes mail slightly different. I've moved to a smaller town and have noticed an uptick in postage due envelopes both incoming and outgoing. If mail is delayed in reaching you, please let me know. I do not flake I will resend immediately. Also, please contact me If you receive a postage due envelope. I will promptly reimburse.
8.15.20 Mail update.... I went to the post office with 25 envelopes, some handmade, some not. They are all under 1 ounce. All non square (this was the first clerks issue, from the first batch). Today's clerk looked at me like I was an idiot when I asked if she could take a look/weigh each one to let me know if they are good with a first class stamp. Without looking/ weighing she said they are non machinable and that they all required the extra 15 cents. I told her that I hadn't had this issue in the past I was new to the area and I wanted to know what the problem with the envelopes was. She said it's the art on them that makes them non machinable. She doesn't know why some of them are OK and others were not but add the extra .15 and we'll see how it goes : (

I do my very best to send high quality usable swap items and I would appreciate that in return. I work with recycled materials (book pages, old maps, used postage, etc and i'll often send some with my swaps. My goal is to give people the chance to craft outside their comfort zone. I send all my swaps on time, if I have issues I will contact you.
PLEASE READ - If you haven't received a swap, or something is off about it, please contact me and give me a chance to make it right. I will do the same for you : ) I have never, and will never not send a swap.
I would love a mix of vintage/new items
More specifically :
Old Ledgers, vintage letters, vintage sketchbooks, logs, random things.
Quality unlined large sketchbooks/ watercolor paper
Micron Pens / POSCA pens
Any Tim Holtz products aside from scrapbook paper & distress markers
Any Dylusions products
Flow Book For Paper Lovers
Alice In Wonderland supplies

Black & White ephemera
Mail art & mail themed things (labels, stickers, interesting stamps, postal cling stamps, etc)
Par Avion (Air Mail) Ephemera
Steampunk themed items, i.e stickers, charms, cutouts, background sheets. Love Tim Holtz style with a pop of color
I like abstract, collage type handmade postcards mailed naked, I also like vintage postcards and paper goods. If it's a postcard swap artsy, unique images are my style.
Scraps of papers from paper pads, if it's not a very unique scrap of paper or bigger than 6x6 please do not send.
Vintage images of people (I am not a fan of found relatives) they are quite creepy.
Things that are crumpled, poorly colored, dirty, smelly, gross, or immoral. No adult themes (I share my SB mail with the kiddos)
I can't be around things that are overly scented like candles, perfumes.
Cosmetics or Jewelry of any kind.
Samples unless they are craft related
I am open to vintage findings that are clean and odor free.
I make my own greeting cards and I love handmade cards. I will pass on store bought cards, if a swap calls for a note card that's fine
I have loads of clippings from magazines, and computer printed images. Please don't send any unless they relate to themes that I posted above.
I also have tons of everyday stickers. (open to 2D -3D stickers)
I don't need any school supply items, glitter, sequins, #2 pencils, pens, stickers, pony beads or circle buttons, or kid like craft supplies.
