About Me

I am an instructional designer, teacher, learner, and mom. My goal is to make more art!

I live in Minnesota with my two daughters, my husband, a basset hound named Humphrey, and three cats.

Find me on Twitter at: hfrazey

Find me on Instagram at: HillaryMN

Favorite Crafts

I love:

  • Sewing (machine, hand, cross stitch, embroidery, hardanger, applique)
  • Art quilts, modern quilting, miniature quilts
  • Creating things with felt (softies, play food)
  • Polymer clay
  • Doodling, hand lettering and zentangle
  • Collage, mixed media, and altered art
  • Art journaling
  • Mail art
  • Working in smaller formats
  • Miniatures (1:6 or 1:12)
  • Incorporating words/text into my art
  • Outsider art, anything handmade, unusual techniques
  • Odds-and-ends, unusual small embellishments

Other Favorites

I love the color green!

Right now I really like house, tree, and bird motifs.

I like tea, coffee, sweets of all kinds, office supplies, handmade or store bought cards/postcards, and every single thing in the dollar store/section :-D

I like my postcards naked...go ahead and alter them too if you want!

I will always love small embellishments, scraps of fabric and ribbon, beads, unusual papers (found items, ephemera, old items, unique patterns, hand drawn), and miniatures of any sort. The tinier, the better!

I am starting a whimsy jar and would love to have colorful, unusual odds and ends to put in it.

I love things with quotes/words incorporated into them....especially if they have meaning to the sender.

Crazy collage, odds and ends, trying new techniques (even if they don't turn out the way you planned)...I love all of these!

My favorite artist is Brian Andreas of StoryPeople. I have this print hanging above my desk.


I have no allergies and no strong dislikes. I value the process as much as (if not more than) the final product, so go ahead and send me your "mistakes." If you had fun making it, or learned something from making it, I will love it!

I don't do anything with knitting or large quantities of yarn. I've tried crocheting without much success. In general, I've found I am better with taking fabric and cutting/altering it rather than taking yarn and creating fabric :-) Scraps of unusual fibers I can use for hand sewing/embellishments would be great, though!

Thank you for swapping with me!


I am new here, but I am excited to start swapping! Thanks for giving me a chance!

My 15 year old daughter loves to draw ATCs and is very into anime, manga, Steven Universe, and Adventure Time. If you are interested in any private ATC swaps with her, please let me know!

Comment: thank you for my card. :)
Comment: Thank you for the ATC. I really like what you titled it. Unfortunately, they would not deliver it because there was not enough postage. I had to drive to the post office to pick it up and pay the difference. Any kind of bulky embellishment requires it to be hand cancelled and costs more than one stamp. No biggie. I just thought you would want to know for future swaps.

Comment: Love doing it also and thanks for yours too
Comment: Hi Hillary! Thanks for the PC from St. Paul. One of my good friends just moved to the Twin Cities. She lives in Roseville. I am planning a visit soon. It's good to know that you love it there despite the winters. The winters here in Chicago can be brutal, too, but somehow we cope, right? Happy Swapping! Valerie

doulakk rated for EJ: Ephemera Pocket Letter on Sep 25, 2015
Comment: Thank you for the PL. I had a hard time finding out who it was from because there was no letter/note or jot on the outside of the envie either of what swap it was for. I am in many PL swaps, which is why it was a tiny problem.
Response: Sorry about that! I really thought I wrote a note (on paper with flowers at the top) and put it in one of the pockets.
