My name is Joyce and I live in Jackson Heights New York City with my DH and where I work at a paper and craft store.
I run two groups here on Swap-bot -
Halloween Everyday in the USA - for all lovers of all things Halloween! We will host mostly type 2 and three 3 swaps! Come visit, say hi, maybe stay awhile and swap with us!
The second group is Craft Hoarders! If you have a ton of craft supplies and ephemera, and love to do "destash" swaps, come check out the group homepage, hang out awhile and hopefully join us as we swap all kinds of fun things, from ATC kits to ephemera destashes with different themes. Open to US swappers who have been on swap bot a least a month and have a rating of at least 4.98
I am working on several altered book art journals -I just completed the Bee art journal, the other is Celestial Rabbit themed. I am also gathering items for an Steampunk Owl themed journal as well. Any items sent that would work with these themes would be super appreciated and would certainly earn you hearts!
I am a lover of bits and pieces, reuser of cool junk, queen of salvaged trash.AKA - Pack rat
Fall is my favorite season. I love the smell of cold air, the crunch of leaves under foot, and of course, Halloween, my favorite holiday
I believe a cup of tea will cure almost any bad mood. So will a good phone conversation with your best friend, sibling, or mom or dad.
I love collage and am getting back into paper arts.
My favorite holiday is Halloween, and I plan, prepare and craft all year round for it.
I prefer gothic, vintage and steampunk Halloween themes.
I adore anything Jack Skeleton from Nightmare Before Christmas.
I also have a weakness for Halloween plush toys!
This years Halloween tree theme is haunted pumpkin patch! Think scary (but not gorey) jack o'lanterns - vintage or goth or steampunk. Hoping to use more organic materials such as wood, fabric, metal. Would love any felted jack o'lanterns! Colors are prominantly orange, gold, rust, brown.
I especially love Bats, Vampires (Anne Rice, not Twilight) Vintage themes, classic monsters. And please, please, NO fun foam shapes.
A quick side note - I am not a big fan of ugly witch images. I also love skulls, but not sugar skulls.
Movies: in no particular order - I am a huge Sci-Fi/Fantasy Geek so I love all Star Trek / Star Wars movies, as well as Princess Bride, The Holy Grail, Spaceballs, Nightmare before Christmas, Gross Pointe Blank, Serendipity, Brave. I am also a huge fan of Rocky Horror Picture Show!!!
TV: During these past few months, I have been binge watching several shows to keep me laughing - We love to watch "Nailed It" and "Whose line is it Anyway" one of my other favorites is Psych! and I enjoy Miracle Workers and The Good Place. My husband loves wrestling, and I sometimes enjoy watching along!
Ah, well I certainly can't pick a favorite book but here are some of the writers I love Anne Rice, C.S. Lewis, Lewis Carroll, Richard Adams. I love Science Fiction and Fantasy. One of my favorite books is Watership Down by Richard Adams - I read it when I was 12 and then started collecting rabbits - I have over 100 now.
I love all kinds of paper crafts, but I don't scrapbook. I've started making art and junk journals to use up alll the great ephemera I own. I also love creating ATC's. I love making jewelry and working with all kinds of ribbons as well.
I love all kinds of music, but since I am a child of the 80's, my favorite is new wave, industrial, punk and goth The Cure, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran. Loved them then and love them still Also love Irish music, Classical and Jazz
I love all kinds of tea, but prefer mostly flavored black teas, with my favorite being Earl Grey. I also enjoy Chai teas and other spiced flavors. For herbal, I enjoy jasmine and chamomile.
The Hubby enjoys flavored green teas.
If I have any dislike, they would be anything Lipton brand (yuck) fruit zinger (too tangy), or decaf (why?)
There are just a few things I'd rather not rather not receive. They are:
Anything religious or political themed
Washi tape samples
Disney themes ( Nightmare Before Christmas the exception)
Anything with Santa on it
Sugar Skulls or Zombie themes
Perfumes or cosmetics
Lipton, Zinger, or Decaf Teas
I always pass on things that I don't use, so if the swap is not profile specific and you send me something on this list, don't worry, I never throw anything away.
