Hi, I'm Jane. I will ALWAYS send my swaps, so if you do not receive the swap within a reasonable time period, please contact me so that I can track it down and/or re-send. I also rate all swaps that I get, so if you haven't received a rating from me, I haven't gotten it. I love to be crafty & take great pride in my work. I work hard to create projects that meet the criteria & spend a lot of time making sure the item is something of good quality and something that I would be thrilled to get. If you get something that isn't up to your standards please let me know & I will do everything I can to make it right.
I have been an avid scrapbooker and card maker for over 25 years. I enjoy traveling and exploring other countries and always come home with hundreds of pictures and dozens of postcards from wherever I've been. I am a huge hockey fan & used to have season tickets when I lived in St. Louis. My favorite team is the St. Louis Blues. Go Blues!! I have an adorable French bulldog puppy that is so cute & fun. We have a great time playing & going on walks & enjoying the outdoors.
I love to read and usually read about 70-80 books a year. I read a lot of fantasy books, but have a wide variety of tastes. Recently I've read a lot of YA fantasy, historical fiction, general fiction, and mystery. I've gone to Comic-Con the last 8 years and have had the pleasure of meeting several of my favorite authors and get my books signed by them. I keep track of all of my books on Goodreads so you're welcome to check out my profile there. :-)
The main crafts that I do is scrapbook and make homemade cards and envelopes. I also make homemade postcards from photographs that I take around San Diego and during my travels. I like making photo flip books out of scrapbook paper & clear envelopes, homemade decorative journal books, mini photo albums for friends, & other crafty things like wreaths, gift bags & boxes, baskets, flower vases, etc. I try to do other crafty things, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. :-) I really like using embellishments and decorative paper and special techniques when I do my crafts.
I appreciate everything I get because I know that people put a lot of thought and time into the swaps, so I'm not super picky. That said, I know that it's a lot easier to figure out what to send when a person lists some of their likes and dislikes, so I've taken the time to list a few things to help you with your swaps with me. :-)
hockey, traveling, dogs, music, tv and movies, books & reading, scrapbooking and card making
decorative scrapbook paper (especially polka dots)
I love anything Batman related, but I also like Marvel characters, like Iron Man, Captain America, Deadpool, Guardians of the Galaxy, etc
I also like DC heroes Green Arrow, the Flash, Deathstroke, etc.
Star Trek, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Sons of Anarchy, Breaking Bad, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Unusual or rare die cuts (I have almost every Stampin' Up punch and die cut so am set there, but something unusual would be awesome)
washi tape - all kinds
stickers of flowers, butterflies, dragonflies, ladybugs, dogs
pressed pennies (especially shiny ones) - usually found in touristy areas (you will get a BIG heart from me if you include one!!)
touristy magnets showing the sights of your town or country
Also weird, funny, strange or ugly/hokey/corny magnets - the odder the better
Patriotic Items from your country (something with your country's flag on it, postcards of your royal family, something commemorating a historic event, etc )
Ephemera from a concert, play, musical, art exhibit, or sporting event (especially hockey) like a ticket stub or brochure from anywhere in the world. I scrapbook these moments in time. If you will write a brief sentence or two about the event or, how you felt about the event, or who you went with, etc it would be awesome & I can include it in the scrapbook!!
I'm not a huge fan of pastel or fluorescent colors. I tend to use richer and deeper colors. I really like deep, rich shades of red, orange, blue, purple, yellow, brown, green and turquoise. I really like Stampin Up!'s color pallets, so you can't go wrong with that.
POSTCARDS: I like touristy postcards that depict images from cities or countries, especially city skylines, castles, lighthouses, windmills, historic buildings, overhead views of beautiful landscapes and tourist attractions (but I do not like multi-view postcards) I also like cards from tv shows or movies, art (except modern art), animals, and flowers.
I also like postcards that are weird, funny, strange or ugly/hokey/corny and leave you a little off-put, or scratching your head thinking "what the heck"? I'm not easily offended at all, so if it's a bit sarcastic, sassy or racy it's ok. I mean, don't send porn for heavens sake, but anything short of that won't give me the vapors or make me clutch my pearls, so it's all good. 😎
I DO NOT LIKE TEA OR COFFEE, so please don't send
I do not want to get any kind of food or candy
Please don't send me any kind of beauty products or jewelry
I don't like Kawaii
I do not collect used stamps, so would prefer not to get them
I don't like stickers, paper, smash cards, etc. that are really young or juvenile looking
I don't like really bright fluorescent colors
I would prefer not to get any free or ad postcards
I do not have children and my nieces and nephews are all adults, so would prefer to not get any children stickers, teacher reward stickers, juvenile stickers, etc. I can't use them, so don't want you to waste them on me. :-)
I have a sensitivity to cigarette smoke, so would appreciate you taking care to not send me anything that smells like cigarette smoke
