About Me

I'm Tara, 42 from Upstate New York. I have never done anything like this before but I think it seems pretty awesome! Very new to swapping and new to art in general too!

If what I sent wasn't enough or to your liking, I'm sorry! I will always send what's required at the very least and on time - if for some reason you don't get what I have sent or dislike for whatever reason, please don't rate me down without sending a quick note. I will always make good on anything!

Favorite Crafts

Love all things artsy and craftsy!! I'm new to a lot but love learning new things and enjoy drawing, painting, abstract, pouring, collaging, lettering, jewelry making, scrapbooking, embroidery, cross stitch, weaving, string art.... I craft with canvas, acrylics, wood, paper, glass, stickers, rub ons, washi, and plan to try resin soon. Also have a few jewelry making kits to try, a soap making kit and just got equipment to try my hand at wood burning and metal stamping! Willing and eager to learn any new crafts or hobbies (obviously lol)!


Movies & TV - geeky stuff, a lot of sci fi, horror ish, quirky.
Some fandoms include Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Lord of the Rings/Hobbit, Star Wars, Vampire stuff (all of them- Buffy/Angel, True Blood, Vampire Diaries, Originals, so many more), Always Sunny, Letterkenny, Supernatural, Firefly, Fringe, Lost, Eureka, Golden Girls, Gilmore Girls, Dexter, House Hunters


- Hallmark movies (guilty pleasure)
- Fate: The Winx Saga

Just finished:
- Rewatching Buffy & Angel
- The Sinner S3
- Cobra Kai S3

- So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo
- The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett

- ATCs and HM PCs
- Alcohol ink on yupo
- Abstract paintings/fluid art
- Some snarky cross stitch patterns
- Practicing lettering and drawing


Nature in general, botanical themes. Bodies of water, oceans, lakes, rivers, etc. Stars, sun, moon, planets, etc. Love Bird themes.

Animals: woodland, aquatic, zoo, domestic and mythological. Love dinosaurs. All dogs, but especially beagles and other hounds. Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang. Eeyore.

Gnomes. Christmas. Snowmen. Love books & libraries. Lots of colors, some favs include all pinks & purples, teal/turquoise, phthalo blue and cherry red. I also love pastels, b&w and vintage too though.

Enjoy supernatural/sci-fi/horror themes, but not gore or slasher, more like space, time travel, magic, vampires, demons, angels, werewolves and monsters.

Love traveling and travel related items, landscapes, landmarks, maps, postcards, ticket stubs, menus, museums, zoos. Love to cook, would love your favorite recipe. Would love any random playing cards with cool backs (not the normal plain ones)

Pop culture references, sarcasm, positive affirmations, nerdy, geeky, dorky, snarky and cheesy, all welcome. Art of any kind. Did I mention dogs? Would love some paint chips/strips if you have any!!! I also love to collect magnets from all over the world!

Honestly, I'm sure I will love anything you are kind enough to send. Feel free to but I don't need you to send any extras and I don't base my ratings or hearts on them. I love anything handmade.


Please don't send any of these dislikes:
-Feet (footprints are fine, dog prints are even better!!)
-Zettiology/Button Fairies (I DO like regular fairies)
-ANY Food or Drink including tea. I'm sorry, nothing personal but I will throw it away. If for some reason I joined a swap that includes sending something like that, just omit it, I won't rate you down for that ever! I also won't rate you down if you didn't read down this far and send me a bag of tea, just know, that I will toss it. I guess you won't know that if you didn't read this far though LOL

LOL; it seems I left you the same exact comment last month.. Still stands.

crochetjunkie on Feb 2, 2021:

Thank you for letting me know! I’m glad it is still moving!

takehimaway on Jan 20, 2021:

Don't forget that postcards use smaller stamps..

Also, do you wanna do a private swap? I'm down for the ATC swap, just bad with deadlines.

In response to the Rating question on the left ^_^ You sent me a wonderful wooden wheelbarrow postcard. It's very pretty, and yes, you did send me a T-Rex stamp which is AMAZING. <3
