About Me

I'm 24, and just starting to discover my artistic side. I'm still experimenting with techniques and styles. I love making ATCs because they let me experiment with new mediums, and if I don't like them (or if I'm really bad at them) I can just throw them away and move on. I also enjoy needle felting, knitting, sewing, and soap making.

Favorite Books

I love to read! I like scifi and fantasy. Favorites include Parable of the Sower, Skin Folk, the Stepford Wives, and the Dresden Files books. I like comics, especially Sandman, Fables, Powers and X-Factor. I like reading about mythology and history also.

Favorite Television

Buffy, Firefly, Supernatural, Burn Notice, Little Mosque on the Prarie

Favorite Music

Goth, industrial, synthpop, darkwave. I also have a soft spot for pop music from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Favorite Crafts

ATCs and shrines! Also, knitting and jewelry making. I like needle felting too, especially making felted soap.

I would love to learn how to make books by hand, make resin jewelry, or sculp with polymer clay.

Things I Like/Don't Like

I like:
Handmade, recycled or repurposed items. I love things that are strange, odd, or offbeat. I enjoy books and reading. Anything feminist, queer friendly, or generally left-wing. I'm a big fan of monsters - both the scary kind and the silly kind. I'm pagan, but I welcome whatever religious items you want to send. I love barrettes, headbands and necklaces.

I don't like:
I try not to shop at large chains, and I appreciate not receiving anything from them either if possible. I hate orange and yellow for no rational reason, and I'm not a big fan of pastels. I don't wear rings or earrings. Scented candles and incense make me sneeze. I don't like plastic beads. I'm not a fan of anything cutesy or patriotic. I don't use anything clipped from magazines. Please do not send perfume or bath products - I make my own.

Wishlist

  • Altered wooden spools (the kind thread comes on)
  • Altered or handmade dice
  • Scrabble tiles or dominoes (altered or plain)
  • Bone folders
  • A brayer
  • UTEE
  • Friendly plastic
  • Brightly colored buttons
  • Rubber stamps, especially the clear kind. (I love strange or offbeat stamps. I'd especially love an anatomical heart, a feather, skulls, trees, or a realistic octopus.)
  • Embossing powder in odd colors
  • Wool roving (good quality, not the stuff from Hobby Lobby)
  • Keys, the older the better
  • A Rider Waite Tarot deck (used is fine)
  • Stuffies (especially monsters or the like. Also hearts and birds.)
  • Issues of Cloth, Paper, Scissors or similar magazines

I have a wists - the link is on the top of this page. If you make me anything similar to an item on my wists, I'll be thrilled. (make sure to view the comments if you pick something to make for me.)

I love your scraps - especially roving, fabric, lace, and yarn.

I'm always running out of gel pens, stamp pads, paintbrushes, and watercolor paper.

One-on-One Swaps

I'm generally up for one-on-one swaps. I prefer to swap handmade items rather than store bought items.

I'll swap small, light things internationally, but I can't afford to send heavy packages overseas.

I can make mini shrines, soap, felted soap, magnets, ATCs, themed matchboxes, small knitted items, mix cds, and handmade paper. I love putting together diy kits. See my flickr for examples of my work.

Favorite ATC Themes

I'd love to get some non-paper ATCs, especially in mediums like metal or polymer clay. Other than that, I love texture and movable parts.

I love these themes for ATCs and Handmade postcards:

  • Trees
  • Horror/Monsters (witches, vampires, zombies, etc.)
  • Pinup Girls
  • Day of the Dead
  • Pirates
  • Music lyrics (esp. oldies and 80s pop)
  • Anything political
  • Sandman (the comic book)
  • Mythology

Don't feel like you have to do one of these themes though.

Comment: I am very disappointed to be flaked out on this swap. I was a little iffy of even joining, but of all the strict requirements, I thought this would be the least likely one I would get flaked on. If you don't intend to send or to even make an effort in communicating, then DON'T SIGN UP! Sh*t happens, but your not evening trying when you don't reply.

Comment: Marked sent 4/9, never received anything in return. I sent 3 magazines that I paid $15 a piece for plus a pair of arm warmers worth $7. This swap is the main reason I'm no longer swapping here. edited--Received my package back today as undeliverable to address and unable to forward. I hope everyone who's sent a package to her gets it back. I don't feel so bad about being flaked on as now, I technically haven't. But my rating still stands.

Comment: You know, I'm pretty tired of getting flaked on, especially in my own swaps. It's not like it costs much to make or send this swap. I will change this rating if I get anything, but I don't think that will happen.

Comment: This was a private swap for $30 of NEW stuff, not counting postage! I sent mine out but never got anything in return. I can't believe I got flaked on such a high value swap. I will change the rating if I receive.

I posted my "Altered Playing Card" swap to you on 13th April, I received it back today 13th June. I am in Australia. But am not resending.

nut on Jun 6, 2008:

Another person who got their package returned here. Mine was for the Feminist ATC swap.

TaraM84 on Jun 5, 2008:

Hmm, I hope everything is ok with you, it isn't looking good by all these comments. Let me know if you are alright and I will resend the postcard I got returned to me for the Homemade Postcards swap.

justingrid on Jun 3, 2008:

Well I guess something happened in your life after reading your ratings lately plus your comments. I just got back the Dark Atc's I sent. If you ever get things straightened out let me know and I shall be happy to resend them.

Robin on Jun 3, 2008:

Hmmm…..

Looks like I’m not the only one to have my swap returned “Not deliverable / Unable to forward� by the USPS.

Oh well………..I liked this matchbox………..so I guess it’s mine.?

CajunLady on Jun 3, 2008:

I really hope my package comes back, but I doubt it as it was sent the first week of April.

Phoenix on Jun 2, 2008:

Hi I just got my ATC Bonanza back too. I guess you moved or something.

latenight46 on May 30, 2008:

The Just Surprise me swap was returned today undeliverable as addressed unable to foward I wont be resending package cost me 13.60 to send that i don't get back and you are suspended

agonysdecay on May 27, 2008:

Both ATC swaps that I sent to you were returned to me today, months later, how strange, reading, 'Undeliverable as addressed, unable to foward.' Since you have been suspended, I won't be resending them.
