About Me

***Hi all, my full-time job responsibilities have ramped up considerably in the past few months leaving little time for me to create, send, rate, and track down unrated/lost swaps. I am unwinding from swaps. Please do not send extras to me (and really, you should always check with your swap partner FIRST before sending extras). I will continue to join swaps as needed to get collaborative swaps moving.

Hi! I'm Ginger! I'm originally from a rural village in Ohio, I'm now in my 14th year living in the Seattle area after spending 7 years in Denver. I live on the peninsula of West Seattle with my husband, Greg and our two cats, Fu (bat) and Kuma (bear). I've been in financial services for too many years and recently discovered my right brain during the lockdown and have been dabbling in mixed media for the past year or so. Another member shared this site with me when reaching out to let me know she received my postcard from my first ever postcard swap. I'm looking forward to stretching myself with these really creative swap ideas!

Favorite Music

Where do I begin? My favorite band is Gomez. I've seen them [or an individual member(s)] over 25 times. Then I would follow them up with King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and The Psychedelic Porn Crumpets. I recently watched The Beatles documentary, so I have a whole new appreciation for them. And Ringo is my favorite Beatle! I love so many 80s hair bands including Ratt, Motley Crue, White Snake (boy this is embarrassing to write...hopefully there is someone else out there like me?), Bon Jovi, Quiet Riot, Def Leppard...maybe I should switch to sharing that I also like Blondie, Cyndi Lauper, 1000 Maniacs - how about the 90s? - Counting Crows, Train, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots. I mean, I just generally love music and honestly will give anything a try. But, I always start my day with a Spotify playlist of ambient guitar music. I can't start my day without it.

Favorite Movies

I was pretty sheltered as a child and my husband has made me watch a lot of the classics from my childhood since we've been together. But here is the short list of those movies I have watch over and over and can pretty much quote: 1. Sixteen Candles (I wanted to be Molly Ringwald) 2. Breakfast Club (I actually wanted to be Ally Sheedy in this one...but be able to apply lipstick like Molly Ringwald) 3. 27 Dresses (favorite scene - at the bar dancing to Benny & the Jets) 4. Elf (I cry EVERY time) 5. CRUELLA ("I fixed it.") - GREAT soundtrack

Speaking of GREAT soundtracks, I'd add Guardians of the Galaxy's soundtrack and that movie may make #6 for me...but my husband would laugh at me for that.

Another great soundtrack (and movie) is Drowning Mona.

Favorite Television

Well, of course Friends...I had cats named Phoebe and Chandler, need I say more?

I loved watching M *A *S *H with my grandpa.

Random list of others: Third Rock from the Sun, Arrested Development, 24, Scrubs, Psych, House, 30 Rock, Jane the Virgin, Veep, Westworld, Twin Peaks (both of them), Justified, Maisel, Russian Doll, Schitt$ Creek, Ted Lasso, What We Do in the Shadows, The Queens Gambit, The Mandalorian, The Fight Attendant, Mythic Quest, Stranger Things, Ozark, Succession, Righteous Gemstones, Escape to the Chateau, Naked and Afraid, RHOBH and RHOSLC, Vanderpump Rules and Bling Empire. AND football, but mostly college football and F1 Racing, so Drive to Survive, too.

This made me reflect back on my childhood, too. I loved Speed Racer, The Captain Kangaroo Show, The Uncle Al Show, The Great Space Coaster and The Muppet Show.

Things I Like to Create

-I love to collage -I love to create zines/MAJs and small decos (the bigger ones are getting out of control with embellishments) -I love creating my own collage papers out of old book pages, tissue paper, scraps, etc by making marks or using my gelli plate -I love using acrylics and watercolor -I love to use stencils -I love making my own junk journals -I love making coptic journals -I love image transfer (now that I've figured it out and it actually looks good) -I love to see how I can recycle something into my creations, so I can not wait to participate in the cardboard swaps! I am already collecting cardboard!
