About Me

I’m a jewelry designer and maker. I love metalsmithing, painting, drawing, stamp carving, fountain pens, stationery, and office supplies. I also love animals. I have 2 sons (ages 10 and 16) and a wonderful husband (really, he's great!). We live with 2 little dogs and 2 grey cats - all pets are spoiled.

I love swapping mail art, atcs, postcards, zines, and other items. I especially like making and receiving art or writing around a prompt, but am happy with all kinds of creativity!

Please contact me if you don't receive my swap - I am happy to re-send if the original went missing on the way from me to you!

I look forward to swapping with you!

Favorite Television

When I get to watch TV I like documentary series, police procedurals (Brittish, European, and American) and I'm always up for a good Sit-Com.

Some shows I've watched recently and enjoyed are: Broadchurch, For All Mankind, Trapped, The Goldbergs, and Made for Love. I'm sure there are more, but I can't think of them right now.

Favorite Crafts

I like painting, stamp carving, knitting (when the carpal tunnel syndrome isn't acting up), ATCs, collage. Pretty much anything art or crafty is enjoyable to me - although I really only just barely tolerate glitter and puffy paint... :)

Likes/Dislikes

I’m reluctant to list things I like because I don’t want anyone to feel like they have to send me extras or something from my list. And, I love a surprise - send me something you like! In case you need some inspiration, though, I do like -vintage ephemera -cats and all other animals -washi tape -handmade envelopes or cards -small/tiny art -fountain pens and typewriters -unique office supplies

I don’t lean towards glitter and bling, but feel free to try to change my mind with your creation if you love glitter. :)

Please, no messages of intolerance or religious stuff. I’m ok with most other themes - feel free to send inappropriate, weird, or sarcastic stuff!

Comment: Thank you for your bird sketch, it's so funny because I join this swap multiple times, this is the third time receiving a bird sketch haha, nothing wrong with that, I love birds, but it's such a coincidence. Love the stickers you sent too, I liked the butterfly one!
