v IF YOU TAG ME IN A SWAP TAG v

I fully intend to uphold and follow through with all tags and promises! Even though I am now partially suspended- if you tag me in a forum tag that I posted on before my suspension, let me know! I will absolutely send, if you link me to the tag thread and tell me what you tagged me for. Message me over swap-bot, and I will receive an email notification of said message. I check my email constantly, and as soon as I see the email, I will log on and send ASAP. :)

^Digital portrait I drew of myself.^

☄ Hi! I'm a newbie swapper that has an affinity for arts and crafts of all kinds! I love to make things, but sadly never find a reason to make anything, lest it just build up in my room and never get used. So hopefully swapping will be a good way for me to continue to create things and share them with other people!

☄ I live in central Oregon, USA, and love to travel almost as much as I love to stay in! I'd be willing to do a postcard swap (blank or filled out), so just contact me if you're interested!

☄ I'm very interested in computer science, programming, and engineering! I also really enjoy other types of science, such as geology; rocks and the like. I have a growing collection of different types of crystals and stones, and I love when they're carved into different things, such as animals.

☄ I will NEVER discriminate against anyone's religion, culture, race, gender, etc! I hope you also grant me that same respect. :D I am a practicing Pagan. I work mainly with the light, but I don't feel bad about using the dark when it is justified. I am an eclectic pagan, belief wise, and I'm still finding my path.

☽ ABOUT SWAPS ☾

☄ Please include your swap bot name and the swap name in swaps you send to me! Swaps I'm in might be similar, sometimes, so I'd like to elimate confusion and make rating even quicker and more painless than it already is! Thank you!

☄ I will ALWAYS message you after I send your swap out to you, and I'd greatly appreciate if you could do the same, please and thank you!

☄ I will ALWAYS rate your swap! And I hope you do the same for me! :)

☄ If my swap does not reach you, please contact me. I'd be more than happy to resend!

☄ I'm new to snail mail and swaps, so I apologize if it's obvious that I'm not a seasoned swapper! I'm still learning little tricks and things to do with swaps, like extras or package decoration, but I definitely will always put my all into every single one!

I Pledge To Rate

What I pledged (Click Me!)

☽ Favorite Crafts ☾

☼ Drawing/Painting ☼

Digital and traditional. I don't paint too often, but I enjoy it when I do. I usually work with water color and acrylics, but I also have some oil paints that I haven't worked up the guts to get into!

⚇ Artist Trading Cards ⚇

I haven't made very many, and just actually made and sent out my first one just recently in a swap! I'd love to get more into making and swapping ATCs, and if anyone's interested in a swap with me, please let me know!

★ ★ My ATC Portfolio ★ ★

☼ Poetry/Spoken Word ☼

I dabble in spoken word and poetry very rarely, but I'd like to do it more often. I enjoy listening to other people's spoken word performances on youtube a lot, and also enjoy receiving poems that other's have written.

⚇ Scrapbooking ⚇

I've recently become very interested in scrapbooking and junk journaling. I'd like to do it more with photo albums and such, but I just need to get over that hump of being too scared to commit to putting the photos in something, right now, haha!

☼ Knitting ☼

Beanies, scarves, blankets. I'd like to learn how to knit socks and sweaters some day! I hoard skeins of yarn that feel nice or have nice colors to them!

⚇ Photography ⚇

I am a self proclaimed photographer, and I used to be paid to take pictures for a magazine. I love going out for a night and just taking pictures of everything. Literally. I love modelling my friends, and sometimes I wish I could have photos like that of myself, but also be behind the camera at the same time, haha.

☽ Other Favorites ☾

☄ ☄ Some people are very strict or don't like being sent extras, but I assure you, I will enjoy almost anything you decide to send! I have a very small stash at the moment, so if you have some stuff you don't think you'll ever use and you think I might like it, then by all means! I'll appreciate it a lot! :) ☄ ☄

Thank you so much @Dorkydactyl for the wonderful Pick 3 tag goodies!!! I most especially love the Oregon map showing the eclipse path - my son was in Lincoln City for it, so I'm creating a collage for him to remember the day, and this is the PERFECT addition..

piratecaptainmo on Oct 22, 2017:

Thank you for the goodies you sent for the PF pick 2 tag. They're great!
