About Me

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 like to send swaps out way before the deadline! The day I mark a swap "sent" is the day I put it in the outgoing mail... it may get postmarked later when it is processed by my small town's post office. 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!

Favorite Crafts

analog collage, junk Journaling, artist trading cards, jewelry, gelli printing, stained glass, Pottery

Things I'd Like to Receive

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

Stickers (no kiddie or reward ones)

Rub-on transfers

gelli print papers

authentic vintage ephemera

authentic vintage handwritten letters/receipts

Little trinkets/baubles I can use for mixed media collage

View Master reels

Sealed tea bags

International stamps

Fantastic Swappers

Feel free to message me any time to pick this old brain lol. If I can help, I will :)

We enjoy a lot of the same crafts :) I did fused glass years ago and loved it. I was making mostly little bits for pendants and earrings. I'm sure when you get the chance to try it, you'll have fun with it!
