About Me

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I vow to try my best to not only send on time but also rate and keep up lines of communication.

I'm not super concerned if a swap being sent to me is a day or two late. Later than that please communicate with me. I am very understanding to people who are honest. I have zero tolerance for the dishonest.

I never expect extras. Just put your heart into your art. :)

I never send anything I wouldn't like to receive.

I feel like I've tried just about every craft out there at one point or another. I can't knit or crochet, and I never quite took to sewing. Paper is my true love.

My online art journey started circa 2005 trading ATCs via yahoo groups. I've taken several long breaks, but I've never truly stopped trading since.

I love pretty much all things related to nature and science. I've been obsessed with cats my entire life. I love to make seasonal decorations with which to decorate my house. I spend most of the year waiting for Halloween. My fandoms are Harry Potter, Star Wars, Star Trek, and Disney. I watch a lot of animated movies.

Postcards

I'm not actively collecting postcards anymore. That doesn't mean I won't sign up for swaps from time to time I have so many to share. I've decided to leave this list up to give people a general idea of the things I like

What I like:

*subversive & weird

*art and illustration

*book covers/ reading

*flowers and plants (especially wildflowers, violets are a favorite)

*nature and nature scenery

*fall

*CATS

*animals (especially unusual animals, frogs, CATS, foxes, insects, sea life... please no dogs)

*birds (OWLS, crows/ravens, songbirds, penguins. ostrich and kiwi)

*weather (lightning,rain, rainbow,snow, etc.)

*Halloween

*Charlie Harper

*Edward Gorey

*Sci-Fi, fantasy, and horror

  • food and drink and food production/ agriculture (wineries, etc.)

*Japan

*cute/kawaii

*space

*caves

*vintage of any of the above topics

What I don't like:

  • Dogs

  • buildings

*ads cards unless it is really cool

  • I prefer not to receive touristy cards

Why I swap

  • It pushes my creativity to work within a theme with a strict deadline

  • It challenges me to improve or try new techniques or crafts

  • I get to "meet" different people from all over the world

  • I get to share my art with other people

  • I get to see other people's art

  • I learn new things

  • I love planning and organizing

  • It give me a reason to look forward to the mail

  • It gives me a reason to use my art supplies

  • It gives me an excuse to buy more art supplies

  • Cool looking postage stamps

  • It's fun

Stamps

I do collect commemorative stamps and use the duplicates for art projects. It really makes my day when people use cool stamps to send their mail! An envelope with a plain old flag stamp on it is a lost opportunity! The next time you buy stamps go to the post office and take a look at all the beautiful choices. :)

Mail art

I'm happy to receive nicely handmade postcards. I consider these to be a form of mail art separate from my postcard collection. I think it's a shame most people seem to hate handmade cards.

Comment: Love the PC, I had a similar calendar last year! I used to have a "protected" backyard and the cats couldn't get out so they had free reign to come in and out as they pleased. But alas, no more, Shakespeare only gets 5" minute supervised outdoor visits 2-3 x day now! Thank you!

Happy Birthday!

I'm so glad you liked it! I try a lot of different techniques, but for that one, I'd photoshopped some images I found online, printed them, and did mixed media stuff over it. It ended up with several layers of gesso, stamps, spray mod podge and some paint markers. I've been trying to get more comfortable with mixed media!

TC on Dec 31, 2017:

Thanks for accepting me into the group. I do flip books but not PLs, so will wait for some new swaps. :)
