About Me

Lindsay • she/her

Early October 2022 Update: Due to unexpected travel and grief, I am quite behind on rating my incoming swaps. They are all being collected and saved, and I will open them and rate as soon as possible. I apologize for the delay, and I appreciate each thing anyone has sent me.

Late September 2022 Update: I am needing to slow down quite a bit for a moment. I imagine I’ll be back to swapping as usual in a month or 2. I am currently in several swaps, and will be able to follow through on those commitments, but am just not adding new ones. I have tons of decos (and other collaborative art projects). If my swapping break is longer than 1-2 months, I’ll work on getting all collaborative projects passed along. I look forward to swapping again soon!

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 and handmade postcards

  • 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 🌈

. citrus fruits, strawberries and other cute fruits

• abstract

• the moon, stars and planets

• metallics

• fairy tales

• bees and butterflies


• rain

• mini schnauzers

• pastels

• feminism

• nature/trees/plants

• camping/cabin life/lake life

• the beach

• 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 Dragon Prince

• Harry Potter

• skiing/snowboarding

Vickyen rated for Gelli plate background PC on Sep 21, 2022
Comment: Hi Lindsay! What a lovely background and butterfly! Only one flower survived the dang mail, but I can see where they should be! When I get started, I have so many prints as well but dang it is so much fun to play! LOL! I need to play more with the deli paper, I have a ton, so... Do you get on a roll when you are playing? I have been trying to line up several HMPC swaps when I get my gelli plate out and make backgrounds for all of them! Look at me, trying to be a tad organized! LOL! All the best and hope we are partners again in future swaps! ;)
Response: Thanks for letting me know about the lost flowers… I even sealed over them! Good to know that I’ll need to try something different if I use them again. I LOVE making gel prints, and definitely go on a roll where I just can’t stop! I have SOOO many prints and I’ll never use them all, but I still want to make more! :) See you in the mailbox!

Aw, thanks for the extra zines, Lindsay!! These were fun to read. For some reason I was picturing your stained glass project as a stained glass-style rather than actual stained glass--that's awesome! I'll have to try it someday. Love your lettering, too!
