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; and I love handmade art! Always feel free to try a new technique or try something new on a swap for me. I love to see what you come up with and how you made it happen. I’d love to hear a little about what you made/sent… I really like hearing from you. 😊

I will always angel any swap I host.

I am 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.

Favorite Crafts

I just love creating things... from sewing to papercrafting to painting to leather and woodwork to to embroidery and everything in between (including polymer clay)! 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

  • collaborative art (decos, postcards, ATCs, etc); I really enjoy seeing what others do, and adding my own touch. I’m always happy to send them along. Homers are okay with me (because then I get to see the finished product before sending it home)!

  • 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

  • vintage stamps or stamps from other countries (I’m in the USA)

Themes of Interest

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

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

• the sea, seashells

• angels

• florals and mushrooms

• rainbows 🌈

• abstract

• the moon, stars and planets

• metallics

• fairy tales

• bees and butterflies


• rain

• cats

• pastels

• feminism

• nature/trees/plants

• camping/cabin life/lake life

• the beach

• body positivity

• vintage or historical

• 80's girl (Strawberry Shortcake, Rainbow Brite, She-Ra, Cabbage Patch Kids, Care Bears, Smurfs, etc)

• gardening

• hearts

• lakes, rivers, streams

• the woods

Anything that would make my boys happy would make me happy in turn. They are interested in:

• singing

• the trumpet

• Pokemon

• Avatar: the Last Airbender

• The Dragon Prince

• Harry Potter

• skiing/snowboarding

• ninjas

• dragons

Comment: Thanks for passing these along, Lindsay! I love what you did in both Rome's Birds and the international open one. Is that tissue paper, on the latter? It looks great with the gold accents.
