About Me

March 21, 2024

I am going into the busiest time of the year in my job, so I will pull back from swapping until mid-summer.


I rate every swap as it comes in. If you think I should have received from you and I haven't rated, please let me know. If I chose not to rate for some reason, I will contact you about the reason.

I usually send quite early. If you haven't received from me, please, please let me know. I'll do everything in my power to make it right.



I love to eat and love to craft!

I am totally not a girly-girl! I live in Jeans and T-shirts.

I live in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. I am in my mid 40s and work in costuming in the theatre.

I recycle or "up-cycle" EVERYTHING! I see new uses and projects in so-called trash. Including packaging! I can't throw away a bubble envie that has only been used once!

I do mostly fabric crafts and collage. Sometimes I use all fabric so that I don't loose the hand of the fabric for ATC.

I can't draw unless you want stick figures; I can do a mean stick figure. :)

Things I Love

I love handmade. I would always love a handmade item even if the swap calls for purchased!!

Post Cards - I have been making a lot of PCs lately and I always prefer to receive handmade ones for swaps. So, if you want to send a handmade PC even in a "purchased PC" swap, please do!

I also prefer any pc in a plastic sleeve. The machines are so hard on pcs now that most of the commercial ones I get have big worn white blobs in the center.

I love Halloween crafting all year round. I constantly add to my spooky crafting supplies whenever I find them.

I love Teesha Moore inspired padded patches!! I have been making and trading, so let me know if you'd like to do a swap.

I love batik fabrics, fabrics with small prints other than flowers, fun colored rick-rack, interesting buttons, unusual ribbons and lace

I do a lot of ATCs, Tags, and junk journals.

I love dragons, dragons, dragons, gargoyles, fairies, mermaids, octopi, Celtic art, Mythological creatures, old school "oops" style pinup girls, Alice in Wonderland, The Emerald City (from Wizard of Oz) and did I mention dragons. :)

I love unusual or NON-Disney fairy tale images (think Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Little Mermaid, etc).

I love Highland Cows! Images or art using realistic photos of them are always appreciated.

I love Edward Gorey!

I collect artist made earrings and necklaces. I love original works that I can wear around.

I love dark colors (black, purple, maroon, blue, etc).
I also love jewel tones. I'm not a big fan of pink/pastels or muddy greens.

I collect interesting necklaces and earrings, 1976 drummer boy Quarters (Bicentennial), space postage stamps, Matryoshka dolls (Russian nesting dolls)

I always love to get interesting die cuts (especially lacy ones or ones that have a lot of cut out space), Halloween paper crafting supplies, beautiful/interesting papers, interesting colored paper doilies

I use a lot of tape runners, Elmer's Craft Bond glue sticks, little tubes of E6000, double sided craft tape


Not so fond of:

Please no alcohol related items. I'm sober for over 5 years and going strong.

Please nothing political from any party.

I don't like scented things (like soap, lotion, potpouri, etc). Nor do I wear makeup.

I am not the biggest fan of things overly "cutesie" (big eye dolls and kids, etc). Disney is not my favorite, but I'm easy going.

I don't have a use for kid related, wedding, scrapbooking or decorative items, altered match boxes or mini zines.

I don't use any modern ephemera (like current movie tickets or random flyers); I just don't have a use for it.

I don't really have a use for bookmarks unless they are something that is an image from one of my likes that I can use in my junk journals. I'm a kindle girl :)

I don't drink much tea; I'm a coffee gal.

Please don't send anything that can melt in the tropical heat. ie. chocolate, lip balm, candy, etc

And as much as I like snacks, please don't send things like granola bars and nutragrain bars. They usually arrive mangled and I can get them at the local grocery.

Favorite Movies

Action pics, Comedies, James Bond, Hellboy, Serenity, A Christmas Story

Favorite Television

Psych, Dirty Jobs, How It's Made, Firefly, Eureka, Scooby Doo, Bones, Futurama, Warehouse 13, Supernatural, Murder She Wrote, historical dramas

Favorite Crafts

I really enjoy making ATCs, PCs, junk journal elements, altered index cards, note cards, etc.

I do a lot of sewing, general crafts, found object sculpture, Doll recons

I make a lot of jewelry.

I cook a lot. But I do not bake much - can't have the stuff around the house!

Favorite Books

Anything by Tom Robbins, The Three Musketeers series, Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass, Cozy Mysteries

Favorite Music

Heavy Metal, Classic Rock, Classical, Scissor Sisters, Nina Simone, Jazz

Things I'm looking for

Right now I am looking for the following things for projects I have brewing.

From the RAKs Only, USA group:

Thank you so much for the April RAK #2... the animal stickers are adorable! 😘

TeaNi on Apr 30, 2024:

It's wild how long mail is taking- I've never had so many follow ups on swaps- asking for resends or ratings. I recently had someone tell me it's something to do with the Atlanta main hub- they recently consolidated several smaller processing centers into one mega-location, and it's slowed things down for some reason. So I think it's an Atlanta thing- coming and going. Glad everything FINALLY made it- sheesh.

theshyone on Apr 30, 2024:

Oh my gracious, thank you for your envie filled with the March RAK #1 - Vintage Library Checkout cards and pockets. I have found a new obsession! AND, I am not sure if I am happy about that :D They may have taken their sweet time getting to me, but it was well worth the wait! thank you ♡♡♡

ARTG33K74 on Apr 25, 2024:

I forgot to thank you for this fantastic Basset Hound puppy twinchie you made in October 2022, I did not notice original art was nested with the paper art supplies gift. ♥ I found it by surprise this week and love it so much.
