About Me

NOTE:

I usually don't put extras into swaps for ATCs, Skinnys, etc., because I put a lot of time and effort into making them, so that you will have the best I can offer! PLEASE do not feel that you have to send me extras either - I enjoy the art itself and its reflection of you!

I SEND - AS EARLY AS I CAN!! So please PM me if something doesn't show up. We'll work it out.

My name is Rebecca and I have been happily married for 29 years,and we've known each other for 30; we have a grown daughter (she loves Swapbot!), and 2 dogs and a cat. We live out in the country in the mountains and love it. Our daughter is the one who introduced me to Swapbot!

I used to own an antiques business, so I like older, unique things with a bit of history. I do a lot of work with genealogy and another favorite pastime is working outside with flowers.

Art wise, I love making ATCs, APCs, inchies, collage, assemblage art and rubber stamping! Just sorting through the materials relaxes me. I also design handmade cards and postcards.

What I find APPEALING

miniatures of anything

vintage postcards, papers, prints, old letters

old decorative metal pieces (small bits, odd shapes, old or rusty)

vintage game pieces and boards

vintage jewelry, even 1/2 a pair of earrings

old doorknobs

old keys, skeleton keys

metal, wood, or enameled numbers and letters

old children's books

vintage children's toys, not necessarily pristine

old political pins

unique old buttons

embellishments (brads, charms, pins, etc.)

herbal teas

journals

vintage looking paper, ephemera, pages from old books, ticket stubs, old tags, menus, show programs, etc.

pretty tissue paper

old photos

ribbon (Especially 1/8 or 1/4 inch wide for ATC's!)

art pens

blank luggage tags for art

coins

scottie dogs

lace

Eiffel Tower related - old postcards, miniatures, history, old drawings, vintage items with pictures of the tower, information about the designer.

Anything by Tim Holtz

What is NOT appealing

cigarette smoke makes my eyes water and gives me a headache

modern contemporary items

Disney, unless vintage

cartoon stickers

"cutesy" things (smiling geese, etc)

Goth items

horror items

soiled or dirty items

clowns

ALLERGIC to....

wheat

refined sugar (but I WILL eat good chocolate!!)

anything scented unless aromatherapy oils

anything with artificial sweetening (Splenda, etc)

caffeine

SO, PLEASE, NO FOOD! (except good chocolate)

COLORS, etc

My favorite colors are red (blue/red not orange/red), black, linen, soft butter yellow (not lemony or bright), silver.

I also like soft green and soft pink and soft yellow, purple, mauve,

English Country Garden colors

vintage florals, soft plaids, vintage look

I don't care for modern styles or colors, neons, or bright colors.

Favorite Artists

Among my favorite artists are Renoir, Mary Cassatt, Monet, Goble

Flakers :(

Comment: Sorry it has taken me a little while to rate you I have been having terrible trouble with the ADSL and our telephone exchange. But enough about my troubles and more about your gorgeous ATC. I think that yours is definitely my favourite from this series - I love it. Now as for your envelope I wish that we could have gorgeous autumn colour like that. But living in the sub-tropics we really only have two seasons - wet and warm and cool and dry.
Response: I am so happy you liked it!! Thank you for your kind words and the rating and the heart. Hope your ADSL gets straightened out!

Okay, so now you have me saving milk cartons. In my mind I am making a beautiful book like yours, but, in reality, nowhere as lovely. Especially if it's only in my mind!!

I am saving cartons, though. Step one.

Caught one of your Flickr images on the front page. Don't believe we've ever swapped, but your art is pretty great. I appreciate someone that puts time and effort into their creations. Hope we'll cross paths in the mail, sometime.

Thinking of you. Hope things are good :-)
