IF YOU WANT A SWAP PARTNER WHO . . .

  • loves a good challenge

  • thinks outside of the box

  • follows swap and site rules

  • values quality over quantity

  • strives to make you happy

. . . THEN YOU HAVE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!


I'm a lifelong crafter from Colorado who has enjoyed exchanging crafts online for a decade now. My creative life has been greatly enriched by this site and by the numerous art classes and crafting workshops I've attended throughout the years. Formerly a public educator, I still jump at the opportunity to teach arts and crafts to small groups and individuals. One of the things I like most about teaching is interacting with others whose hearts are wired for the arts.That's also my favorite thing about Swap-bot. I've found soulmates here . . . friends for life.

I'm especially interested in swapping:

  • hand painted or drawn ATCs

  • small slow-stitched pieces

  • inchies

  • mail art

  • postcards

  • handmade envies

  • hand carved stamps and images

  • Gelli prints and items made from Gelli prints

I LIKE:

  • Anise Pizzelle

  • Bees

  • Black Labs

  • Black Tea

  • Cabins

  • Calvin & Hobbes

  • Cats

  • Cherries

  • Children's Literature

  • Daisies

  • Fleetwood Mac

  • Hawaii

  • Knee Socks

  • Mary Oliver

  • Mice

  • Milk Chocolate

  • Mountains

  • Novelty Earrings

  • Papermate Gel Pens

  • Pillars of the Earth

  • Polka Dots

  • Queen

  • Rabbits

  • Seashells

  • Snowflakes

  • Spirals

  • Stencils

  • Stickles

  • Stripes

  • Tatcha Products

  • Ted Kooser

  • The Secret Garden

  • Treehouses

  • True Crime Podcasts

  • Washi Tape

  • Whimsy

  • White Detailing

  • Wildflowers

  • Woodland Creatures

Comment: What an awesome explosion of color, shapes and texture! It takes my breath away! Thank you for sharing your art journal adventure with me. (It always amazes me how different our swaps turn out.)
Response: Our swaps are quite different, aren't they? I'm glad you like my frenetic approach to art journaling. I should have warned you not to look at it before bedtime. I'm afraid the burst of activity will keep you up all night. LOL! Thanks for the rating, matey!

Comment: This is really lovely, Allison, thank you. And a nice, neat back as well! Xx

Comment: I love your Learning Curve project. It's so cute! It's interesting how things can turn out better than you pictured even though they take so much longer than you thought they would. And that prep can be a lot of work and cost so much. Thank you so much for an awesome swap that was a surprise for both of us.
Response: I enjoyed making this for you and am relieved and excited that it was finally delivered :-) I love swapping with you. It's always a good experience! ♥

Comment: Thank you for another delightful swap. I think my favorites are those with the tiny flowers / flowers & hearts and the adorable Holly Hobby fabric--I know a couple of swap-bot friends who love her and I have ideas of what to make already! ♥ I really enjoyed this swap and hope you'll host more of these charm swaps in the future. Thank you!
Response: I do plan to host more . . . after I can get back into shopping at actual stores. My stash is a bit pathetic right now. I'm glad you enjoyed the swap. I had fun putting it together for you (after coming out of my brain fog) and look forward to the next round. Thanks for the nice rating!

Comment: I love your psycho-neuro yellowness! Both the envie and the card are very cool. And Hamlet was very pleased to get mail from Coco. (He gave it a good sniff.) Thanks for hosting this one. It's nice once in a while to work on whatever you feel like at the moment.
Response: I loved doing this swap. I think I'm over the psycho babble now, but it was a fun experiment and a great little rabbit hole for my watercolors to travel down. Thanks for doing this with me! P.S. Coco is super happy to hear that Hamlet was pleased with his mail. :-)

Comment: Guess what arrived today! My cute cookieeeee! (I was beginning to wonder if the hungry snail mails ate it up on the way here.) I like the blue frosting, silver balls, and pretty ribbon. Thank you for the calorie free treat. And the card it came in was sweet, too.
Response: Did you try the silver balls? They're tasty! Thanks for the rating :-)

Comment: I am really quite blown away by your sampler! It does not say beginner at all. You need to see mine for that! It's so intricately detailed with so much in the small squares. I will find a special place to display this treasure. This sampler swap was quite an adventure!
Response: I agree! This swap was an adventure! I definitely learned a lot. Thanks for putting up with my nervousness about the whole thing. It helped knowing I would be sending it to a kind person. Thank you for the nice rating and for the heart.

Comment: Thank you for the pretty "Sparkling Conversation!" I was going to remark on the embossing but it is the glass bead gel that gives that sparkle. It's really lovely.
Response: Glass bead gel is my latest favorite craft product. I'd smear it on the walls if it wasn't so expensive. LOL! Thanks so much for the rating :-)

Comment: I love my leaf! It's beautiful. The beaded edging is awesome. (How did you do that?) The background felt does look familiar. I hung the leaf on my fake ficus tree so I can admire it. I like your calendar page envie, too. I want to do something with the Halloween barn. Thanks for providing me with an exceptional Happy Mail day! I love getting swaps from you.
Response: You got your ornament quickly! Yay! That felt looks like suede, doesn't it? If I remember right, the beaded edge is a blanket stitch with a bead dropped on at the beginning of each stitch series. I'm really glad you like it! Thanks for another fun swap 💚

I just got back home from an extended family visit up north, only to find a sweet strawberry surprise from my sweeter swap-bot friend! ♥ Thank you so much for thinking of me, for the adorable stationery, and for the wonderful welcome home. ♥

I forgot to thank you for adding the green heart to your Art Journal envie. I appreciate it!

mummsie on Jul 21, 2021:

Well I just stumbled across your name. I have wondered what had happened to you and if you were alright. You had made me such a beautiful piece of art once upon a time and so I think of talented people from time to time. I know, too much thinking right? Take care beautiful person!

Love the Manly Mashup dude you created for my OMAE Zine! So cute and springy with the flowers and such, and then there's the vulture- Genious! Thanks so much, Allison!

stephiedee on Apr 13, 2021:

Thank you for the awesome UFO themed envelope! Such cool stuff...I really dig the postcards, but that sticker of the T-Rex getting beamed up is too cool. 😍 Love your envelope, too! Happy you're enjoying the group!

sassafrass on Apr 3, 2021:

No, it definitely hasn't been easy, but so much worse for many. I can't complain at all for the changes to my life with so many losing loved ones, jobs, etc. I hope we are getting there! I have to keep hanging onto that :) Take care!
