I keep having to take a break from swapping (although I love doing it) due to overbooking myself with work and school... But when I do sign up, rest assured that I am ready to go...... SO about me: I am an former artist teacher currently working on a masters degree in art therapy. I happens to have many collections including: keys, marbles, elongated pennies, glass, art supplies/tools, musical instruments and bones (just to name a few), Ink pens with business names on them.
Inside my home is host to 3 quirky cats, Cadbury/Jack/Meeple and a couple of tarantulas. Outside many squirles, birds and neighborhood animals visit.
I have been an artist - crafter since very early on. If it can be painted, assembled, glued, carved, strung, cut, or created I have probablly tried it. If it has a combination of all of the above I am definitely interested. I find making ATC cards satisfying because of the mixed media possiblities and short term commitment needed for completion. Oh paper crafts and sketch journaling are always fun too.
I confess I am addicted to paper!! Plain, colored, glittered, cut out, in journal format or loose, I love it!

If you are cleaning out your junk drawer and find you have more then your share of ink pens with business names on them, please feel free to send them my way.
I have a running art project called "Can I borrow a pen" that is using the pens as a large scale art instillation. The goal is to collect 5000 pens. I am over half way there but could always use help.
I prefer quality over quantity anytime. I appreciate any swap where effort is evident and will rate accordingly always. I would appreciate those getting my swaps to do the same.
What, you need to know more???
Colors - rainbow.. really I teach art for a living... I love color or any color scheme.
