About Me

  • I finally completed grad school, so I'm back to swap land. I'm currently working for the state and helping individuals with spinal cord injuries. My job allows me to be mobile and see all kinds of folks and hear such interesting stories. I didn't really know where I was going to end up, but I'm pretty happy where I am.

  • I will hopefully be doing monthly creative arts therapy group session with individuals who have traumatic brain injuries. I'm fascinated with the creative arts as a form of therapy, so I'm looking forward to this opportunity.

  • Please, please , please contact me before rating me with a low number if you don't receive your swap. I send them out, but sometimes they do get lost. I'm more than happy to re-send to make sure you get your swap! ^__^

  • I love to explore beadwork. I mainly use seed beads, but I love large, funky beads. Plastic beads with a flat back that have interesting detail are neat, but I don't like pony beads or dull colors. Cabochons and other trinkets with flat backs such as fun buttons are great! I love to use oddities in my art.

  • Trained in darkroom photography and metalsmithing. I love keeping my hands busy creating. If I had my druthers, I would have a studio to pursue these hobbies, however I do not. That's why I bead, sew, and do a few other things in my very spare time. However, I love creating things for people, so I'm hoping to participate in a few more of the handmade items swaps!

  • Cats are my spirit animals. I currently have five cats, Zapp Brannigan, Ginger, Callie, Snickers, & Wendy. They're each silly and special in their own unique ways. I love cat themed items, and I consider myself a bit of a cat lady.

  • In my spare time I dig catching live music, a movie from time to time, and hitting up one of the several amazing parks near me. I like being outside when the weather is decent!

  • Let's see, the more creative the swap, the more I'm probably going to like it. I'm a crafter at heart and appreciate handmade items! I hope to be able to participate in some swaps like that at some point in time.

  • No allergies that I know of. Chocolate is one of my best friends, haha. I love bright and colorful things, the brighter the better usually.

  • I know this is a disjointed profile, but it's just how I roll. I love people, I love crafting, and I just want to participate and enjoy swapping!

  • Most importantly,I get so excited to send and receive snail mail! Each envelope or package is always such a treat, and I like to think that I can put a smile on someone else's face by participating! I love receiving mail art. I just made my first minizine and the swap host said they were addictive. She was correct, and I'm looking forward to making more.

  • I've started making ATCs, and I freaking adore them! However, I'm not one who embellishes them with all the bells and whistles, I'm a good old sharpie/watercolor/paint kind of gal when I make mine. Just wanted to get that out there so no one can't say I didn't warn them! Mine are typically all HD/HP. :)

  • I try to get my swaps out as quickly as possible. I do not flake, and I hope no one does on me. However, I realize this probably happens more often than not. I won't be one of those folks, so no worries here.

  • I have fallen in love with hand binding my own books. Plus, it's a great way for me to use up some of my larger gelli prints. Book making is so calming to me, and I love being able to gift a small one to a person now and then and seeing them light up over it.

Comment: What!? I can't believe what just came in the mail! My own private mob murder room in a tin! You must have a wonderfully wild mind. When I peek inside I imagine scenes from Resevoir Dogs, The Sopranos or Goodfellas. Soooooooo cool. Thank you so very much for this incredibly unique swap. I absolutely love it!
Response: I have a super wicked mind, and I’m so glad you dig the mob box! I’m terrible at spooky stuff, but I love true crime and all that it encompasses! This was such a fun swap to piece together. :)

Comment: What the heck! I rated you the day you messaged me and I just randomly checked to see if I could archive this swap and lo and behold, there was no rating! I swear this is happening to me so often, it can’t be user error. There is something going on with this site. I am sorry. I loved your page. It was fantastic! Thank you!

Thank you for the January muse via MOMMA! I loved the mini envie, and thank you for the stamps! I haven't made many mini envies - just for Christmas as GC holders :) Good luck with future job endeavors!!

Embossing folder- apparently way way cool. I know I had a thing for embossing tea cups and flowers, but can't remember if I kept it where I put it because I'd never seen anything embossed that way before and thusly had no idea it'd be neat. Thanks for the happy mail, if nothing else your embossing will end up used for something
