I took a long break from Swap-bot when I went back to school to become a librarian. Now that I am settled in my new carreer, I am ready to swap again! I have really missed this creative community.
I am a Texas gal living out my happily ever after in Sweden. I am a bookworm and hobby novelist who has been know to write the odd poem when feeling existential. Gardening is a soothing practice I don't do enough. Artjournaling is the best!
I do lots of crafts including: watercolor, crochet, scrapbooking (think more junk journal than cute and coordinated), altered art, and ATCs. I really appreciate crafts that incorporate upcycling.
Most anything goes for me since I think it is fun to get something that a swapper likes to make. If I had to choose something that I might not like though, it would be anything too Disney. I like all sorts of colors. I am especially into papercrafts and any sort of altered art. I also have a fondness for boxes and little packages of all kinds, such as matchboxes and origami creations. Textiles are also fun and I love anything hand sewn, knitted or crocheted. Last but not least, I am obsessed with words and books.
Art nouveau glamour like in Agatha Christie's Poirot, ethereal and somewhat gothic figures such as Edward Gorey's illustrations, colorful journaling like Teesha Moore's, and plump people like Botero paints.
Send me stationery, ephemera, stickers, or journals.
I loved participating in Round Robins but I have been flaked. So somewhere out there, someone has my journal. I only hope they love it as much as I would.
