About Me

If you don't receive it, I make it right, I don't flake, just check my ratings. I rate the day it arrives.

I love art, crafts, music, hiking, gardening and teaching art.

Favorite Crafts

I do mixed-media plus teach arts & crafts at the library (volunteer). It's a mission, I provide everything. So I like swapping for your de-stash. I have tons of foreign text items from living in Europe 22 years.

I keep an art journal, I draw, alter items/books, I do beading, jewelry, more. Love vintage anything and steam punk, also Paris. I swoon over anything bird, feathers. Address labels will get you a heart for sure.

FAVE COLORS: Teal, purple and jewel-tones.

ATC/Skinny/PC collections: Crowns, Flowers, Vintage, steampunk, butterflies/dragonflies & birds/feathers.

RUBBER STAMPS: anything vintage or steam punk, gears, clocks, crowns, birds, owls, dragonflies, butterflies. Background/texture stamps too. No wood back stamps please. No room.

METAL CHARMS: same as above and flat charms/filigree I can glue onto my books.

Teas: Green is my fave, especially flavored ones.

Things I'd Love

I'd love to have some of your die-cuts: leaves, birds, butterflies/dragonflies, trees, snowmen, clocks, gears, crowns, anything steampunk or vintage and anything Tim Holtz. Any words that I could use on tags, etc. Preferably cardstock. No machine myself.

Love,love,love small crocheted flowers.

Embellishments or stickers of flowers or anything nature.I supply everything for my classes and ladies love flowers/birds/butterflies/dragonflies.

Also love purse/keychain charms in my colors, teal, purple. Fun for purses and zippers.

Brass/metal stencils, used ok.

Things I Can Swap

Destash your extras in exchange for....

I have great items for collage or art journaling: foreign: maps, music, brochures, stamps and product labels, business cards and other odd items all in foreign language, usually Russian, Ukrainian, Romanian, Georgian, French, Armenian, German, Italian. Also have a small amount of Arabic and Hebrew language items. All from 22 yrs living in Europe.

I have a lace/trim/ribbon collection that goes back to the 60's so some of it is vintage for sure.

I have foreign money/coins.

Postcards from various countries and themes.

Beautiful paper napkins from Europe. Just brought some back from Germany (vintage style).

I'll trade for scrapbook stuff....your chance to clear out what you don't want. I like vintage anything, but needn't limit it to that.

Dream List

I need a banner for my Etsy shop if you know how. Would love some address labels and swap cards.

What I Don't Want

I have enough stationary, thank you. No Halloween, skulls or dark side stuff. No candy, tea or coffee and I"m over the top with note pads. Thanks, anyway. Also, no cosmetics or personal products. All of the above is with the exception of being in a swap for these items.

Trouble from

Susanne Gross (FrauSusii) flaked. Jenni Lumpkin (Pawprints) flaked on me twice. Evitake flaked. Evelyn Rozychi (eviroz), she was difficult. Beware. Christine Alejos (christine1) flaked.
