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.
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.
Buffy, Firefly, Supernatural, Burn Notice, Little Mosque on the Prarie
Goth, industrial, synthpop, darkwave. I also have a soft spot for pop music from the 60s, 70s and 80s.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
Don't feel like you have to do one of these themes though.
