These are always so nerve wracking to write up. My name is Julia Sanders, I was previously a swapper but due to some unfortunate life changes I had to take a few years off. In am now back and healthy and ready to swap. I am a mother of 3 kids (2 girls and a boy). I live in the Pacific Northwest and love taking advantage of all that this part of the country has to offer.
I focus primarily on altered art but also make jewelry, write, knit and paint. I am sure that I will be adding to this section as my time back as a swapper grows.
Thanks for stopping by, Julia
I absolutel LOVE to read. My taste in books is as varied as my moods. I will read just about anything and everything I can get my hands on, and would love suggestions for new authors or books.
As I mentioned in the "about me" section I am particularly drawn to Altered Art (specifically repurposing containers and tins, altering books, and creating ATCs and larger Collage), Scrapping (mainly I create mini albums, I haven't worked in "traditional" scrapping for many years), Jewelry Making (I love to work with wire). I also write a ton and of course knitting.
ATC & ROLO preferences: For the backs of both ROLOS & ATCs I request that my partners please include the title of the card (if it has one, many of mine don't), the real name of my partner, my partners swap handle, the name of the swap, the date, where the piece of art was made (city/country), and if you are comfortable I'd love to have your contact info (an email addy). For ROLOS: I would like the punches to be on the bottom of the cards, and although more is always appreciated, covering the backs with colored or patterned paper is just fine, so long as I can read your into clearly. Thanks everyone!!!
There is so much I could list here that I think it might be easiest to list the companies/themes/eras that have been inspiring me most right now: Graphic 45, 7 Gypsies, Tim Holtz, the Victorian era, Steampunk/NeoVictorianism, Lace, Vintage (ephemera, buttons, fiber, sewing patterns, pictures, postcards, ledger books, journals, etc.), Old Cigar Boxes, 19 Century International Ship Travel, 19 Century FootLockers, John William Waterhouse, The Renaissance, Shakespeare
Although I appreciate all things that are sent to me I kindly ask that my partners avoid sending food, scented items, confetti of any kind, Sanrio type stuff (Hello Kitty etc) UNLESS IT IS MEANT FOR MY KIDS) reward stickers, religious items (unless part of a vintage send)...neon, plastic beads, animal print, etc
I love swapping and almost always have my swaps finished by the send date (unless of course it is a profile swap). I also LOVE to send a little something special with each swap, I joined swap bot to make others smile :)
If for some reason you do not get a package from me OR you feel the package does not meet the requirements PLEASE contact me before rating. Like I said, I joined to make my swap partners smile and I will do whatever I can to fix the situation :)
Thanks everyone and HAPPY SWAPPING
