Favorite Crafts

I am crafty! I love everything crafty and hand-made. I spend entirely too much time on the internet looking at craft blogs. I enjoy craft supplies and everything that goes along with living a creative life--and I can't wait to share and swap with others who feel the same way! I sew, papercraft, play with fibers and beads....cute, sparkly, trendy awesomeness is hard to resist and I am so happy to have an excuse to shop for it now that I am swapping.

Favorite Television

I don't watch regular television; only netflix, hulu or amazon prime. I am not up on current network shows or reality tv, but I love to stream interesting shows from start to finish. Some favorites: Nurse Jackie, Mad Men, Friday Night Lights (TV), Bloodline, Top of the Lake, The Handmaid's Tale. More than TV, these days I am into podcasts: This American Life, Studio 360, 99% Invisible/Radiotopia, Stitcher's Top 100.

Favorite Books

I like to read, and I read a lot. I generally get all my books from the new fiction section of my local public library. I also like how-to books. I enjoy home decorating/craft magazines, too. I am a writer.

Favorite Movies

I like quirky independent films and movies about people and their stories more than big Hollywood action/superhero blockbusters. I love interesting and offbeat documentaries.

About Me

I like vintage. I enjoy wandering antique and resale shops looking for cool stuff to display or refurbish with paint and ingenuity. I like to renovate and decorate my 200 year-old home. I am bakers twine and washi tape; I am twinkle fairy lights and day old roses with a dash of yellow sports car and My Little Pony!

Things I like to create with:


Twill tape labels

Fabric (cotton, linen, kitsch/retro prints imported from Japan, Liberty)

Glass-headed sewing pins

French Bohin sewing needles or Tulip from Japan

Ribbon, trims, lace, bias tape

100% wool felt, wool felt balls

Repurposed buttons

Wooden spools

Small embroidery scissors

Colored sewing thread (I'd love to try Aurifil someday), floss

Tiny embroidery hoops

Pellon products


  • Decorative papers, book pages, old text, classic ads/images

  • Ephemera, vintage/found images and items for collage and ATCs

  • Postage stamps, old or new/canceled or unused

  • Stationery sheets, writing sets


Adult coloring pages

Stickers (scrapbook quality)

Fine point sharpies (pens: all colors)

Fabric tape, washi tape samples

Mason jars

Things that catch my eye:

Fabric and design motifs: woodland/foxes or sweet deer (not owls), arrows, feathers, peace signs, little red riding-hood, Alice's Adventure in Wonderland, 1930s reproduction feedsack

Little houses -- I am into making fairy houses: inside (dollhouse dioramas) and outside (gardens with natural and repurposed materials)

Mermaids, fairies, myth, legend, classic children's literature

Vintage china and tableware

Vintage equipment (typewriters, dial phones, cameras, airplanes (vintage travel) etc.)

1950s kitchen

Vintage camping

Nifty papergoods

I prefer modern quilting to traditional.

I am a sucker for anything in cute packaging.

Some other things about me:

I have an awesome, quirky studio space in my home. I own a spinning wheel, but I can't spin yet; I can weave, but I don't own a loom. I know how to knit and crochet, I just don't do it enough. I own an embarrassing number of sewing machines (vintage and new). I love ALL vintage sewing stuff (notions, buttons, equipment, patterns, literature, advertising, furniture). I want to restore a treadle sewing machine to working order. (I have two in pieces in my barn; just not sure how to put them back together again.) I love fashion but don't dress as nice as I should. I love to research/sew historical costumes. I have a small sour cherry orchard in my back yard. I have an orange/brown VW bus (Westfalia Camper van). I like big city and rural country equally. I'm into the idea of zakka. I love museums and libraries. I love antique carousels. (If they weren't millions of dollars I'd have one in my back yard.) I love to design party themes and gift bags. PENNANTS! I appreciate nice smelling candles, soap, hand creams and balms. I love to hang out in a coffeeshop to write, hand sew or read. Lately, I have gotten into spray paint: uv coatings, decorative finishes....

POSTCARDS: I love letterpress, vintage/vintage inspired, cool images. I love seeing all the different stamps and your messages. If something is too wonderful to ship naked, I have no issues with an envelope.

I LOVE pathtags!! Love all GC swag!! To collect and drop. I can get yours out in the wild in my area, if you PM me.

In specific:

I will gladly arrange a one-to-one swap, just contact me if interested.

Please, if it's not a bother: No sports stuff; No teaching stuff; No mustache stuff.
