High time I posted something: I am taking a rather extended break from swapping .. I am not sure if I will be back or not but am keeping my account to keep my options open. I can be reached at [email protected] if anyone needs me. Its been a lot of fun! Hugs to all Pat

I AM INTO : (at the moment!)

  • I am experimenting with mixed media. I Could use any supplies including canvas, stencils, acrylic paint, gesso or other mediums and brushes and anything you can think of!

  • Altering anything - I like to alter and decorate tins and boxes, even picture frames and silverware! I want to try altering cigar boxes but they are hard to find! Just started altering dominoes and Tim holtz fragments and loving it. I have tons of tins and boxes but smaller flat items and broken bits of jewelry to glue on altered items would be appreciated.

Vinyl : I love using my cricut to cut vinyl! I am making assorted types and sizes that can be used on lap tops, phones, appliances, windows, walls etc! Some of the vinyl is totally safe for walls and the rest can be used on walls with caution. I am also using chalk board and whiteboard vinyl to make tags and labels.

  • Knitting and crochet - i do a bit of both but in small amounts. I am presently in search of very large knitting needles up to,size 50 of any type.

  • Felting - I love to needle felt both to make flat and 3d items and to felt on something. I also like to felt wool sweaters and use the resulting fabric .

Thank you but no thank you:

As I have done a lot of swaps i am starting to notice I have an excess of certain things.

For example note cards, note books of all types and pads of paper! I am out of room to store them!!

There are a few things that i do not use at all and do not like to receive. Thank you for not sending the following:

  • Wooden pencils
  • erasers of any kind
  • anything geared at kids
  • postcards
  • kids or low quality stickers - actually most stickers
  • Magnets - i have nothing to stick them on!
  • stamped images (except as above)I don't get the point of the black on white and I don't use them at all!
  • radom bits and pieces of paper. I have so much I don't even save my own scraps anymore.
  • atc's
  • sequins/confetti i just dont use them in any form!

Thank you for your consideration in not sending these items. They will be of much better use to someone else.

In general I like items that are useful as opposed to ornamental! I have enough things that collect dust already!


Please always be honest with me about swaps I understand life happens but i really dislike being lied to!!!

If there is a problem with something I have sent please feel free to let me know and I will extend the same courtesy on swaps i receive. I do tend to think outside the box so if you cant figure out how something applies to a swap please feel free to ask!
