About Me

I love making things and swapping crafts! Interests include paper arts, stickers, mail art, jewelry-making, altars & shrines, tarot, Magic, art journaling, and sewing.

I live in Arizona and I am loving the winter weather! I have three grown children, and two small grandkids. Right now they live in a different city as me, and I'm trying to snail mail them letters and interesting things to maintain a sweet connection.

I was in education for 20 years, but taking time off to regroup and discover what's next for me in the world of work. Love crafting as a healing activity.

I'll take great care when making or preparing swaps- and I'll try my best to send you something you'll enjoy. I appreciate the opportunity to meet new friends and send "happy mail" via Swap bot!

If anyone is interested in a one-on-one swap for something handmade, I would be totally into that...just PM me.

It's such a bummer that postage cost so much these days. I try to challenge myself to send interesting things for the least amount of postage. And I appreciate others who do the same. Send me something thoughtful & creative, for one or two stamps-- I am impressed with those packages the most!

Favorite Music

I love all kinds of music, especially music that involves storytelling

Favorite Books

Instead of specific books, I'm going for authors and genres: I like Sherman Alexie, science fiction (American Gods and anything by Octavia Butler are favorites), Rumi

As I think of more will ad

Favorite Colors

I love earth tones (Browns, mauves, rust orange, desert greens, etc.) and jewel tones (rich purple, cerulean blue, deep fuschia, emerald green, etc.)

Favorite Crafts

My favorite crafts are related to paper. This includes painting papers, collage, art journaling, ATC's, rubber stamping, etc.

I also enjoy making medicine bags and tiny wire sculptures (these I usually leave around town, for others to find as "found art".)

I have been crafting for at least ten years. Making and sharing my art is therapy for me!

Things I really love

Hand painted papers, pretty papers, rubber stamping, anything related to print arts, vintage things, old book pages, vintage/ antique ephemera, thrift store shopping, mail art, awesome dollar store finds, tiny things (stickers, kawaii, buttons, beads, etc.) swapping craft materials

I LOVE Washi tape! Believe it or not i just discovered it...Thought it was a fad...Now I see why its so popular! Love solid colors and artistic/ unique patterns the best. Like paper rather than plastic. All colors welcome.

Things I am likely to send & would love to receive:

+Carefully curated paper scrap packs

+Well-constructed hand made envelopes

+Hand painted papers (tags & envelopes too)

+Sticker bombs (a package of interesting single stickers)

+Themed paper pockets

+Vintage ephemera

+Vintage book pages

+Smash journal prompts

+Handi-craft share

+Hand crafted labels (with inspirational quotes or a tiny poem)

+Art Postcards (I'm not a collector, but I love to pass on)

Favorite Television

Forged in fire, law and order, criminal minds, flea market flip, pawn stars, storage wars

Dislikes

*neon colors *prefer handmade, over popular commercial item *disney, unless vintage *Papers/ images that are that are Americana, country, or too cutesy themed
