About Me

Greetings and Welcome to My World!

I am 60 and I love to create, it's the only time my bipolar mind is at peace.

I am single with 3 cats, Willow, Honey and Shelby.

I live in Smyrna, GA USA and have lived in GA for over 40 years. I was born in Ashtabula, OH near Lake Erie, and I love beach stones and driftwood.

I am new to Swap-bot but not to swapping. I first found and joined Swap-bot in 2015 but never participated until April of this year (2018).

My motto:

Stay Curious About Tomorrow

Hope Always

To remind me that even though today it seems senseless to go on, tomorrow things can change, so just hold on, one day at a time, one hour at a time, whatever it takes.

Feel free to adopt and share this phrase with others.

I am open about my life challenges with Bipolar2, depression and anxiety, and available to talk about it anytime. We have enough to deal with the stigma from the outside world without having to deal with our own inner battles of awareness

I can't seem to get the links section to work, so here are my pages, sorry you have to copy and paste them in.

Favorite Crafts

My main art form is stoneware pottery, clay works its way into almost everything I create!

I like altered art, assemblage, mixed media collage, ATC's (mini collages!) handmade cards, and to stretch my abilities with different forms by doing artistic swaps

I am a member of a Facebook altered art swap group always looking for new members, if you are interested message me.

Some of the swaps I have participated in are, altered cigar box, ribbon doll, junk doll, altered blocks, dominos and jenga pieces, altered keys, mason jars, and paint brushes.

I make jewelry components from clay for other artisans to make jewelry with and also have my own line of Art pottery jewelry, boxes, vessels, plaques, wall art, spirit dolls, and way more then I can list here. Check out My Pinterest for more if you would like

My Likes List

My likes list

I love opening my mailbox to Happy Mail, all those envelopes with stickers and drawings and stamps, yummy!

Things I like: I collect angels, Goddesses, cats, fairies, crystals, beach stones & driftwood, small boxes, Kwan Yin, boxes with drawers, oh and cats (again)

Colors - jewel/peacock tones, earth tones, favorite color - purple (all shades), all colors with the exception of red

I like sparkly, cruelty-free, natural, gaia, metallics, textures, triangles, spirals, organic, talismans and amulets, symbology, Celtic, Egyptian

I don't draw, paint or sew, so I am especially appreciative of Artists who do and especially enjoy receiving these types of artwork

I love things with inspirational and empowering words, like Hope (my personal favorite), Create, Inspire, Believe, etc.

I am always on the lookout for things to use for texture in my work with clay, like unmounted rubber stamps, pretty much any object that would make a good impression in clay.

My personal passion and main creative outlet is Art Pottery, my favorite potter, George E Ohr, the Mad Potter of Biloxi

Stocking Stuffer Swaps

CHRISTMAS & STOCKING STUFFERS SWAPS ~~~~~(I am so Loving these swaps, I sign up for every one I see on Swap-bot)~~~~~

I love receiving handmade creations, so if a Christmas or Stocking Stuffer calls for store bought items, feel free to send me handmade instead.

I enjoy hand made cards, ATC's, ATCoins, embellishments, etc.

Anyone with talent in drawing, painting or sewing, are especially welcome as these are things I don't/can't do

Altered Art and Assemblages of all kinds

Handmade Jewelry items (I send lots of these out in swaps since it is a favorite art form of mine)

If store bought is your thing then I like:

Stickers (Dollar Tree ones are great, especially the dimensional ones!)

Craft smart paints from Michael's ($.70) or any acrylic paints, satin, frost pearl

Ribbons and laces (Dollar Tree and Michael's have inexpensive ones)

Colors - jewel/peacock tones, earth tones, favorite color - purple (all shades), all other colors with the exception of red

Those inexpensive ($1-3) wooden ready to paint items at Michael's checkout area

Please no food items, no tea, no lotions, soap, etc, unless they are cruelty free, no leather, fur or feathers, etc I am not a fan of Washi tape, but so many are that I just pass it on to them!

For a large chunk of my life, Christmas has not been the happy time that others seem to have, (and I know I'm not alone in this). This year Swapbot is helping me make it a Merry Season, I am anticipating the month of December for the first time in a loooong time. I can't wait to open and comment on the gifts I have received AND I am looking forward to seeing what you all think of what I sent you! I am thinking of doing a 12 days countdown, so I can spread the fun out!

Dislikes

Dislikes Themes I am not a fan of - beachy, skull/bones, scary, disney, too cutesy

Please no food items, no tea, coffee, cocoa, etc No leather, fur or feathers. No lotion, soaps, etc unless they are cruelty free

No unhappy happy mail that smells like cigarettes, yucky

If you have a fall birthday (Sept-Nov) and would welcome profile greetings from fellow UHM members on your special day, be sure to post your birth date (month & date only) in the UHM group forum!

I was finally able to find a good place to abandon your craft from the Art/Craft Abandonment Swap. It was left at Lucky's Steakhouse.
