About Me

June 2017 Hi, I'm taking a swapping break for the summer. I just loss my Mom to lung cancer and I'm in the midst of a move. I'll see you again in September. -โ€”--โ€”โ€”โ€”--------------------------------/ Hello, My book is finally published! After 2 years of working on it, I'm so happy it's out there in the world. Above is the link to "Art Journal Your Archetypes." I have a variety of interesting jobs - archetype consultant, workshop facilitator, and mixed media artist. I'm a mama too. I love abstract art, found art, art from natural items, and upcycled art. I'm not into scrapbooking but do a little smash booking.

My M.A. is in expressive arts therapy.

Favorite Movies

I dig indie movies and comedies.
Lars and the Real Girl, Eternal Sunshine on the Spotless Mind, Harold and Maude, Koyaanisqatsi: Life out of Balance and all Wes Anderson movies such as Darjeeling Limitied and Royal Tenenbaums. I also like Hal Hartley's movies.

Favorite Crafts

I do all kinds of art-making: art journaling, ATCs, paper art, mail art, knit, paint, draw, felt, needle felt, upcycled art, assemblage, and mixed media.

Please don't send

Please do no send: Perfume or scented lotions, anything religious or with angels, candy (but chocolate is ok, especially dark chocolate),

I have loads of these so don't need any more: -used postage stamps -English dictionary pages -blank postcards

I'm not a zentangle fan.

Favorite Music

The xx, Wilco, Voxtrot, Sleigh Bells, M.I.A., Beastie Boys, She & Him, The National, Arcade Fire, Best Coast, Adele, The Ramones, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Cat Power, Edith Piaf, to name a few.

Things I Like

*animals (especially owls, hawks, birds, chickadees, songbirds, dogs, snakes, moose, horses) not really interested in water animals

*colors - ALL however lately into fuchsia, orange, and vermillion

*dark chocolate

*I drink herbal/decaf tea.

*flowers - ALL

*nature, woods, forests

*foreign text pages


*moonscape, planets

*rainbows and unicorns

*vintage fortune telling images

*oracle cards

*anatomy images


*cocktail napkins with patterns and prints not restaurant names.

*musical instruments (not musical notes or sheet music)

Comment: Hi Gabrielle I received your parcel today and am really excited about the pig washi tape. I have never seen it before and I will use it for very special people to make it last longer. I also liked all of the ephemera that you sent - they were really interesting and will come in handy for ATCs. Thanks so much for making my day and I hope we swap again sometime soon. Pat
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you like all the items. The piggy washi is from etsy. :-)

DaisyNY rated for Pass & Paste--Early Febuary 2017 on Feb 14, 2017
Comment: Thanks for the P&P - I'm rating right away so this doesn't get lost. You decided not to do the corpse thing? I'm going to try - it's the fourth person who will have the hardest time with this as she will have to join two squares to complete it.
Response: I have a few P&P to pass along and I'm not so interested in the corpse approach. That's more like a collaboration pc that I already do. Enjoy adding to it.

Comment: Thanks Gabrielle. What a cool envelope! Is that a stencil of some kind? My wife's name is Star so I like all star stuff. And I have an idea for the card. Warmer weather, yay!
Response: Hi, glad you enjoyed the envie. It is a stencil and I think it's Celestial by artistcellar. They have a series called Arabian Nights and it's all stars.
