Favorite Crafts

(Update 1/6/2013) I love playing with paint, stencils, and paper in any fashion. I enjoy collage and mixed media work. I also LOVE making postcards. They are so much fun to create and then release into the wild. I've started working more with fabric and embroidery, so I've been building up a fabric stash (even though I swore I never would because my mom has one!).

About Me

(Updated 3/4/2013) I successfully completed my personal project of 365 Days of Creativity. Woo-hoo! It's been fun to make something every day but sometimes it's a relief to have to make a particular something. That's part of why I got involved swap-bot.

I love to see what others are doing. Everyone has their own take on a project, and it's fun to see how differently each person translates a theme. My studio in my house is full of all kinds of different things - fabric, paper, magazines, paints - and a couple of cats who like to supervise. I don't really collect anything - I'm an equal-opportunity hoarder.

Please let me know if you've sent something but haven't received a rating. I try to rate the same day, unless I am out of town. Also, please don't hesitate to message me if you haven't received something I've marked as sent.

Dislikes

Since part of the fun is seeing what everyone else is doing and being impressed with their particular style, I'm pretty wide open regarding what I'd like to receive. However, I do have a few big dislikes. Please don't send me:

  • Big-eyed girls

  • Fairies

  • Overly religious items (for example, I like religious icons but not Bible verses)

  • Anything scented (I'm very sensitive to smells)

  • Advertising postcards, unless the swap specifically calls for them

Likes

I especially love bright colors and upbeat images. Nature images are great but so are abstracts and almost anything else.

  • I love clouds, especially painted or photographed

  • Images of flowers, trees, fruit, animals

  • Tissue paper

  • Mail art and Postcards

  • Altered books

  • Animals, especially birds

  • Washi tape, decorative tape, tissue tape

  • Decorated envelopes

  • Hand-made journals & altered journals

  • Hand-made paper, pretty paper

  • Paper cut art

Books I've Read Lately

(Updated 30 April 2019) Some that I've liked recently (in no particular order):

  • All Systems Red

  • Captain Alatriste

  • The Weight of a Piano

  • The Wolf and the Watchdog

  • Bolt

  • Break In

  • Cold Days

  • Kingdom of the Blind

  • Newcomer

Comment: Thanks for the sweet PC, TIna! The Hermitage is definitely the first place you should visit in St.Petersburg! I would also recommend different Cathedrals not far from Nevsky Avenue. So if you ever get here, you know what to do :)

Comment: This show looks so cool! The card art reminds me of one of my favorite artists Ann Piper. She did a painting I saw in NM of a woman eating a donut and the expression on her face was so amazing, I still think about it all the time. Thank you for sharing with me! :):):)
Response: OMG- I looked up Ann Piper. Her art is fantastic!

Comment: Thanks For the beautiful eggplant. It's Exquiste. (See what I did there?) great answers too funny thing is that it doesn't even look like it went thru the post office. The stamp isn't cancelled and there are no markings on it. It's like u out it in ur mailbox and it morphed to mine. Ha. Have a good day and thanks for hosting
