My Etsy Store
My name is Erica. I'm from North Carolina born and raised. I'm a wife, a mom, a graphic designer, quilter and mixed media artist.
I love opening my mail box and seeing decorated envelopes, postcards and packages. I love handmade collages, books, and cards, they make me sooooooo happy!!
One of my favorite things to do is to go yard sales and estate sales! I'm always looking for vintage ledgers, cards, and stamps to use in my art. I also like going to thrift stores, and flea markets to find stuff thats cool, useful and valuable. I don't go to many these days because of COVID-19.
I love syfy movies, power walking and dancing.
I have participated in a lot of deco swaps, I would love to get some of the many I made back and see all of the creative pages. If you have one of my decos or a journal and want to send it back to me please send me a message or email to get my current mailing address. THANK YOU! (My email address is [email protected])
I have stopped swapping Friendship Books.
I always make something that I would want to receive. I hope for 5s and hearts.
I stick to deadlines and mail on or before deadline dates. I will send you a message and let you know if I can't deliver!!
I rate all swaps. PM me before you rate me if you don't get your swap or if you are unhappy. I will fix it. PM me if you don't get your rating! PLEASE rate my swaps!
If my swap partners send what is required and they mailed it on time I rate it with a 5. I give hearts and glowing comments for beautifully made, thoughtful, and personalized swaps, and touching notes or letters.
If your swap is gonna be late or if there is another issue please let me know by the deadline and we will be cool!! Smooches!!
Creating is relaxing for me. My favorites are quilting, sewing, mixed media art(drawing, collage, painting, stamping), cp soap making, crochet(intermediate), reusing packaging and junk mail to make cool stuff.
These days I'm in love with making my own journals or little books. I put a lot of time and creativity into them. l love the idea of having a book filled with collage, quotes, ideas, drawings and thoughts
I'm an art teacher. I teach graphic design. I have taught basic sewing classes, quilting classes and teen sewing classes at an after school program.
