About Me

I'm a native New Yorker and love all things New York City. Love mixed media. New to card making, hand lettering. I"m crafting on a more serious level after some time off! So I like to say I'm shopping more than creating because I'm eager to learn and create with all the latest trends. I have started getting refamiliar with all the different options i.e. Gesso, acrylic gloss, and molding paste, etc. I love stamps and love seeing all the different stamps out there, washi, brags, glitter, yes I love glitter, glitter away! It cheers me up! I love embellishments. ****I MEAN THIS WITH ALL MY HEART**** FEEL FREE TO SEND ME THEMES YOU LIKE, SO THAT I CAN LEARN SOMETHING NEW. I'm here to learn about others. I prefer it! That being said here's more about me...

I recently bought Jane Davenport water colors and love how vibrant they are! I also use Cotman student brand.

I'm still working on developing a personal style. I like whimsical drawings and am fascinated by everyone's creativity. I have no country chic tendencies, but I appreciate it when I see sophisticated creations.

I bought a cricut to help cut perfect paper panels, but I still need to learn how to maximize this purchase. I recently tried to make ephemera but the theme didn't match the current projects. Now my strategy is to coordinate with the current theme before making random shapes.

Lofty Goal: I hope to have a booth at a fair offering affordable all occasion cards for sale this summer. I'm learning and hope to find my niche.

I love makeup and had a highly rated account on makeupalley for swapping. I love talking make-up and I love make up doodles. More than make-up I love Bulls! Totally obsessed and have collected items when possible. I have a tile from San Franciso, 3 shakers/noise makers from Cozumel, an 8x10 portrait from a craft fair, a cow head made from bamboo (?), and a large frame 30x50 of a charging bull. I love the power and strength of the bull and the patience of the cow. I love bullfighting portraits but only if the bull is charging...no bloody Bulls : (

About Me

I'm an avid YouTube watcher. Primarily craft gurus. "m so grateful to everyone on YouTube that shares their knowledge. Folks are so giving of their talent and I"ve learned so much!

I will say that I have a lot of 12x12 paper pads... At least 20...Michael's Hot buy syndrome -- "It's only five dollars!" Total newbie move. I'm still making purchase mistakes, so I've slowed down drastically.

I don't live near HobbyLobby or Joanne's so I mostly shop at Michael's, Blick Art Supplies, and DaVinci.

Likes

Newspaper front pages, Doodles of Coffee/latte, cupcakes, ice cream cones and Paris themes. Rome, Wine themes, creative bookmarks, whimsical portraits/drawings, I love all colors. I love anything happy gold, silver, sparkly, etc. I also like distressed anything, Punk, Bohemian, Animal cut outs, Bulls, classical music, Ice skating, doodling, water color, acrylics, iconography, ruins, archeology, religious art, and all types of desserts. I love ephemera and embellishments. Ballet drawings, dancers, botanical line art, cactus, succulents, orchids, etc. --****I MEAN THIS WITH ALL MY HEART**** FEEL FREE TO SEND ME THEMES YOU LIKE, SO THAT I CAN LEARN SOMETHING NEW. I'm here to learn about others.

Dislikes

I'm a scaredy-cat. Please no occult, demons, ghost, etc. I don't have time to do other crafts at home. Do not need yarn, needles, children's projects. I prefer not to receive any food related items. I do not have a need for recipe cards. No make up samples please. I have too much!

Comment: Thank you for all of the goodies! I hope I received everything!! The envelope was torn and taped by the post office. Also, I had to use 'process of elimination' because there was no name or I didn't find one anywhere!

Comment: ♥ Thank you for all the great stuff. I didn't find your name or the name of the swap anywhere but did a little detective work. Since you are my only swapper left from NY it had to be from you. So thanks again.

Thank you so much! Let's put this paper to use!

Welcome to International Small Swaps ! I hope you will enjoy the group and your time swapping here on the bot :) I've also invited you to International Paper Crafts as it seemed that it might be a good fit. It would also be a great way for you to use up some of that huge paper stash ;) (I'm totally the same!)
