Hi everyone! I'm Kara from Kitschy Designs by Kara! I'm an artist based in Central PA and my focus is paper crafts, collage, mixed media, and jewelry with a funky vintage vibe! I love all things vintage and retro! Mid century modern, art deco, and 80s mall vaporwave pastels are all my type of aesthetic! When I'm not working full time or crafting, I'm either thrifting or rollerskating! Check out my Instagram: @kitschydesignsbykara I'm very active on there. I take swaps seriously and will go the extra mile! I usually send out swaps the same day partners are assigned, but no more than 2 or 3 days after getting assigned. Always WAY before the deadline! I love the thrill of getting happy mail in my PO Box, so I'm open to private swaps as well! The mail is still going out super slow, so if it has been two weeks from the deadline and you still have not received anything it is because it got lost in the mail. I NEVER flake so please let me know if you didn't receive anything by that two week mark and I'll re-send promptly!
Some of my favorite crafts are analog collage, junk Journaling, artist trading cards, jewelry, gelli printing, and I'm learning how to create stained glass! The next art form I'd like to learn is fused glass.
While I never expect anything extra, here are some things I'd love to receive in happy mail: washi tape (any style), anything mushroom or botanical related, napkins for decoupage, gelli print papers, authentic vintage ephemera, authentic vintage handwritten letters/receipts
When swapping, I never want to limit a person's creativity and enjoy the surprise of sender's choice! I like to put a disclaimer: I am open to themes like feminism, swear words, and 420 related content! I however will not send out any of these themes unless whoever I'm paired with explicitly states like I do here that they are open to this as well. What I am not ok with: anything that glorifies and perpetuates violence, prejudice, or racism.
Here are some of my favorite things: Crystals and gemstones, flowers, botanical themes, mushrooms, mid century modern themes, artist trading cards, altered rolodex cards, junk Journaling, paper crafts, collage, roller skating, Tim Holtz products, all kinds of tea, the colors orange and pink, Doctor Who (especially Tom Baker)
I love receiving all kinds of jewelry! I have pierced ears and love anything from small studs to long dangling earrings! I have a medium to large size wrist (I wear a small standard fit bit band). My ring size is a 9. Sometimes I'll size up to a 10 to wear on my middle finger.
