About Me

I am an artist and a traveler. I am married to my best friend (My fantastic husband is from Sweden) and I am the mother of two amazing children (One of Each) . I was a tattoo artist for several years and I am now the owner of a local vintage clothing store that I am in love with.

I love any form of creative expression and am looking forward to sharing mine. To date my greatest art project is my 2 amazing children and we all have an absolute blast together.

***** ALLERGY ALERT ******

I have Anaphylaxis to Latex ( Deadly reaction ) so please help me by double checking that any swap items, including extras!!!, are free of rubber, erasers, elastic, adhesives, tape, ect....

That means please send your super cool extra vintage whatever to me and please send the stickers, stamps, rubber bands ect to someone else. Not to be super melodramatic but my life could depend on it and my kids depend on me so until I can afford a bubble...take care of a fellow swapper

If you have a question you can always ask me.....THANKS IN ADVANCE!

I hand draw and color all of my ATC's and seal them before I send them out.

IF IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT I am your partner and you didn't get something from me PLEASE PM me asap! It will be taken care of.

Comment: Wow, thank you so much for all the magnets. Also thanks for the vintage postcard. November1915. I am going to make a collage of all the old ones I received. Love your doodles of the salt and pepper shakers on the envelope. Shirley
Response: I am so glad you liked everything! I collect S/P shakers too and was tempted to send a pair to you but...alas it sounded like you had plenty. The doodle of the S/P on the envelope was an after thought but it made me laugh really hard...reminded me of my kids! Glad you enjoyed and thanks for joining my swap!
