About Me

I'm just a happy 33 year old lady living in Tennessee with my new husband and our Pug, Harrison Ford.

I am a full time student and a part time Print-maker.

I joined Swap-bot because I want to meet artists/crafters from around the world and swap some handmade things. I've decided I really like postcard swaps as well.

I'm a print-maker and I really love making handmade envelopes out of vintage/unique pages from books and encyclopedias.

As I said, I'm new, so if I do something wrong, please message me before you give me a bad review. It will most likely be just that I didn't know, and your feedback will be much appreciated!

Things I love...

Something handmade! I'd always take that over something store bought. (If the swap says only "store bought" and you want to send handmade I will LOVE it!!) What a rebel, right?! :)

If not handmade, I like pre-loved things. If given the choice I'll always choose a used book over a new one. It has so much more character.

Star Wars Anything!

Leopard Print

Pugs, especially black ones

The color Red, olive/moss greens, mustard yellow, turquoise

Dolly Parton

Kurt Vonnegut

Vintage Photos

Anatomical Art

Scientific Illustrations

Hair stuff




TV shows

How I rate

“Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.”

If it arrives you get a 5.

If it arrives and it is something that was sent based on my profile or I just like it you get a heart.

Stuff happens guys... If you can't send something just drop me a note, I won't be upset.

Remember, it's not an organ transplant, it's a postcard. xo

I just left a comment on your Dolly swap. Then I got all curious where you were from. We're neighbors!!! I live in Corryton, TN.

One of the main reasons I want to do a Dolly doll is b/c I found a tutorial on how to make boobies. lol

I just favorited your shop. I really like the prints that you make, especially the ones with the bright colors. I also like that you do both ones with pictures and ones with words, it appeals to a wider variety of ppl.

I favorited your cute Etsy shop for the "Promote my Etsy Store". I also "liked" the Facebook link and Fave'd an item.

Hi! I just visited your Etsy store and favourited a bunch of items before I ended up favouriting the whole shop. I love your unusual subjects--most people don't choose cicadas and armadillos, for example. But you make them so beautiful! Your song lyric prints are gorgeous too.
