About Me

Hello!

I have always loved paper and multi-media artistry. About 1993 I began a 2nd job working for a stamp company (which is no longer in existence) as an image artist and a product designer. Next, I worked for two different retail sellers of stamp and stamping products as a buyer and product designer. I have had some work published in a few crafting magazines by invitation, but I don't generally submit work.

All through those years I have been making homemade cards, altered books, and swapping ATCs. Most of the groups for the swaps were local, so we met and swapped and talked about techniques and materials. That's my favorite way to exchange ATCs, but I don't have access to those kinds of swaps any longer and am looking forward to exchanging art with people on this site. When I am not making ATC's to swap, I spend most of my time making cards with Bible scripture and words of encouragement to other Christians and people I know who are ill, home-bound, or in need of knowing that someone is thinking of them. It is the most rewarding thing I do at this stage of my life.

Now that I've gotten started in Swap-bot, I will tell you a little about my likes, etc. I love vintage, historical, elegant floral, humorous, and animals of all kinds--pets or wild ones. (Especially fond of dogs, cats, horses, birds of prey like hawks and owls, and bison.) I have Native American geneology, so I like native/old west style, too.

Please no porn or things that would be inappropriate to a Christian. Favorite style to create is vintage--I have a HUGE collection of great old photos that I like to use for my cards. Love blues, greens, periwinkle, but please use what colors please you in your creativity. If you have any problem with something I send you or you do not get my mailing, please contact me before rating me.

Sending extras is not necessary. Please, no stickers, and I have waaaay too much other stuff as it is. I give hearts based on the cards themselves, not on extras. I always rate and always send when I've signed up. So if it gets lost in the mail and you don't receive my art, please msg. me and I will make it good. Looking forward to swapping here!

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful coins you created for me. I appreciate that you explain your technique. I've never used crackle paste and paint, but now I want to. I especially like the wisdom quote. And thank you for the unique and lovely extras. The mini envelopes are adorable. Oh, and I love how you wrote 'please hand cancel' and 'fragile' all over the outside of the envelope and of course, it went through the machine. But thankfully it all made it through safely. Thanks again.

Response: I'm glad you liked it. I love working with natural things when I can. The biggest problem is that those dried flowers are so fragile. Thank you for the good rating and the heart!!

Comment: yay! it finally arrived 😊 I absolutely adore it! The saying is so true! And the cat is fabulous! winding the yarn gave great texture and added a touch of "bling" too. Thank you for the purple textured papers and the yarn. That was very considerate to add it for my purple color love! Thank you for the whole envie! Love your stamp on the outside too...Do Not Bend!! lol.
Response: What a relief that it showed up. I didn't have another cat like that one, so I would have had to do something different. You are welcome for the goodies!
