About Me

Lindsay | she/her

Hi! I just LOVE creating heartfelt art to share with others to brighten their day. I also love checking my mailbox for happy mail and seeing what beautiful things my swapping friends have created. 🎨 💕

I’m open-minded and accepting. Please don’t worry that I won’t accept your type or style of art, because I will, and I won’t give or threaten a poor rating. If you’re ever in doubt, you can add a note explaining things, but for me this is just because I like hearing from you. 😊

I am always open to private art swaps! Send me a message if you’re interested.

I'm mom to 2 boys, a wife, a gardener and an artist. We have a dog and a cat. I love history and fairy tales. I enjoy genealogy. I love rocks and crystals. I’m into native plants, and herbalism. I love nature. A weekend in the woods is a perfect weekend to me!

🖼 I maintain a "little art gallery" in our front yard. It is always open for sharing and swapping art locally. If you'd like to send something for the gallery, I'd love to select something to send back to you! Follow @littleArtgalleryolivette on facebook for updates. When swapping with me, please indicate in your letter/package if you are okay with me sharing any artwork in the gallery. I don't like to pass along artworks that people make for me without their knowledge.

I hope to have the opportunity to make up my 2 old “1” ratings… I’ve messaged my partners and hope to hear back!

Favorite Crafts

I just love creating things... from sewing to papercrafting to painting to leather and woodwork to embroidery and everything in between. I’ll try any craft at least once. I just LOVE making things!

Most recently, I’ve learned how to bind a leather book, and I’ve been sewing hexagons together (English Paper Piecing) to make small toys and a quilt top. I’m also in the middle of sewing my 1st (non-historically accurate) historical garment... a dirndl dress, along with a blouse and apron. I’ve also been cranking out lots of ATCs lately!

Happy Mail

I love sending and receiving happy mail! (Who doesn’t?!)

Some things I’d be thrilled to receive:

  • anything handmade (even if the swap requires a "bought" card, I always prefer handmade and will not rate down)

  • colorful, decorated envies and packaging

  • zines

  • "fancy" tissue paper samples

  • ATCs

  • gel prints or mono prints

  • tiny artwork

  • a secret, a hope or a dream (I'll keep it between us!)

  • your art

  • interesting items from where you live

  • tea (especially caffeine-free or herbal)

  • a letter from you

  • a story or essay or poem

  • favorite family recipe

  • soy-free, dairy-free vegetarian recipe

  • handmade or interesting paper samples

  • your best parenting or marriage tip

ATC Themes of Interest

I am grateful to receive any ATC that you wish to send me! I especially love hand-drawn and -painted ATCs.

If you’d like some ideas specific to me, here are a few themes I’d like to add to my collection:

  • florals

  • rainbows 🌈

  • abstract

  • the moon

  • cats

  • inspirational/happy/positive quotes

  • feminism

  • The Little Prince

  • nature/trees/plants

  • gnomes

  • camping/cabin life/lake life

  • ocean/sea/beach

  • body positivity

  • fairy tales

  • tasteful, artistic nudes (not interested in erotica or in nude fantasy like mermaids or fairies)


Comment: I’m going to try the gel printing soon. I love the look. Day of the dead was a great theme

Comment: Rating edited October 2021: I received several messages from the swapper seven years after being flaked on. The swapper said she would just sent me the package to "make it up to me" but didn't have my address. I finally gave in and let her send me package. Now she has requested that I change my rating for a seven year old swap. I am not going to give her a five because this did not meet the posted requirements and is seven years late. But I will change this rating because she added the comment of "sent in August" without including a year. Original 2014 rating: I didn't receive anything and I didn't receive a response to the message I sent Lindsay919 regarding this swap.
Response: Swap sent August 11. Thank you for your patience with me.
