About Me

I love anything vintage. I am currently engrossed in making junk journals and have a love of old paper, ephemera and old floral and botanical illustrations. Would love to swap some of my prized paper collection, including old stamps, gardening books, paper and much more. LIKES: Anything paper, vintage and botanical.. DISLIKES: Neon, tie dye and glitter

Favorite Books

My favorite authors are: Barbara Kingsolver, Thrity Umrigar, Erik Larson, Joyce Carol Oates, Ruth Rendell...to name a few.....I am a voracious reader and could not possibly name all my favorite books.

Favorite Crafts

Currently any craft involving paper. I love making books, art and junk journals and on occasion an assembledge piece. In the past I have made baskets, done some batiking, made cards, done origami, made quilts and have done quite a few sewing projects. I have recently started making ATCs.

Other Interests

I love to read and garden. Can’t wait for spring so I can put my hands in the earth.

Favorite Collections

Posrcards, old quilt fabric pieces, Alice in Wonderland books ( no, I do not cut them up for my journals), ephemera of all types, postage stamps, botanical books....and more.

About Me

JJJ-Let’s make a junk journal. This sounds like a very exciting swap. I mostly make “vintage” inspired junk journals. Lots of nature: flowers,birds,animals, mushrooms..I have recently tried adding a little more color to my journals-and especially love green,purple and blue..I love labels, vintage washi and stickers..Although I have never used a digital kit (printer and ink cost issues) I find myself loving some of Tracie Fox and Artymaze’s digital kits-especially the labels…who doesn’t love labels? I have also started experimenting with some eco-dyeing and recently dyed some paper using hibiscus..Also made some eco-prints using the flowers and leaves I have in my garden. I was pleased with the first attempt and will definitely be trying it again. Excited to start this swap. Items I am always grateful to receive: Handwritten ledger sheets Old envelopes Vintage looking washi and washi stickers Old postcard Old photos Eco dyed paper Labels Handmade paper Lace Any old ephemera Sari silk Small botanical illustrations

Comment: What a wonderful collection that you sent! It was a joy to go through each lovely piece. I particularly love the hang tags with stitching. But it warmed my heart that you included a glassine envelope with rose cut outs in it that you know that I love so very much :) Exceptionally nice. I thank you very kindly

Comment: Hi Diane! Thank you so very much for the the great items that you sent…I love the Robin card and the squirrel book page! As much as I appreciate these items I was a little disappointed that the flat items didn’t fit the theme of the journal I will be working on for this journal series. The swap series coodinator asked that we put a special note or paragraph in our profile letting our swap partners know what we would like to receive for the journal theme that we are making which I did do. The theme for my journal is Victorian/shabby chic, etc. I am still rating you with a 5 and a heart cause I do like what you sent which is in my regular profile. You might want to be sure to hunt for your future partner’s specific wishes for this swap. Thanks, Diane!

Comment: Hi Diane! Happy 4th weekend! I got your package today! It is AWESOME! I chuckled because you wrote "do not bend" on it and the USPS had it all crammed in the mail box. No worries though, everything was still in good shape!!!! Lovely vintage goodness! I certainly would love a private journaling swap! Either swapping stuff (because I have soooo much) or a journal, I'm easy! Have a great day!!!! Deanna
