I'm an avid reader of nearly anything but, mostly I buy tons of craft/art books from amazon each month and enjoy reading all the new ideas and seeing such wonderful works from fellow artist. The gallerys that are found in most craft magazines and books serve as wonderful sources of inspiration for me.
I'm not a great movie watcher unless the tv is serving as background noise with LMN movies and CNN/FOX news.
I started about a year ago playing with poly clays and trying to teach myself to sculpt. By this date, I've bought nearly all books on clay for jewerly, sculpting faces, boxes, ect.
A great artist that I've been following is Laurie Mika. Her book, " Mixed-Media Mosaics: Techniques and Projects Using Polymer Clay Tiles, Beads & Other Embellishments" has been a great place for inspiration and I've completed several of the projects in the book with great sucess.
I am old enough to know better and mostly still to damn nosie to resist the danger.
I look forward to gaining new art friends and sharing ideas and crafts. To this end I hope all of my projects are well received.
I'm interested in making dolls of any type. So, please email me if you would like to do individual swaps. I am now experimenting with grotesque dolls. This is defiantly outside of my realm but I love to try new things. My other fascination is BJD's. I've been doing a lot of reading on how to craft your own and I am about ready to attempt making this lil darl'ins.
I can appreciate and see whimsy & value in almost anything. So, just about any craft supply, stickers, felt, wood items (even damaged) I will fix It., pendulum boards, canvas, wire,
Supernatural- any items
Religions of all kinds- Buddha, Hinduism, Wiccan, Pagan, Shinto’s, ECT. I.e. charms
Charms of all types i.e. fairies, mythology, butterflies, Wiccan, Celtic crosses, beads any colors
Halloween / samhain at any time of year
Steampunk- art, gears, ideas, clipart
Dia los Muertos
Any and all craft products All craft books and ideas i.e. pamphlets on how to’s, idea sheets ECT.
Talented people (they are hard to package in boxes they squeal to much)
Ocean/ all items originating from there
Wildlife- all of it. But NO snakes
All colors esp. aqua’s any shade
New friends-esp. creative ones
Art dolls-all types
Eyes, hands, body parts from clay, paper, plastic ECT. Even bones from birds if they died naturally.
poly clays all colors and sculptures, faces or even things made from molds, geez, I could go on forever with likes cause everything is likable to some degree and other items has some creative use. You just have to find it.
If you’re sending items, anything will be received and appreciated for your kindness the most important thing to me is the note that shares something about yourself and your art.
Oh yeah a word about this, I have NO allergies.
Dislikes: 1. People that DO NOT COMMUNICATE. If something came up just pm and let me know that you can’t send. Life happens and that is fine. But I really don’t like chasing someone around to figure out why they have not sent.
Host/Hostess/ Group Founders, that DO NOT watch after the groups welfare and letting known flakers in on the swaps.
NON Raters (didn’t your mom tell you to say thank-you) and Flakers (you basically stole from the swap group and your partner.)
I will honor all of my swaps and will do work that I am proud to send and not just good enough to shove in the mail and scratch it from my list. My work is very personal, so, my heart and soul is put into each piece and I want you to like it or at least have appreciation for the time spent.
If time permits, I would be happy to angel for any group for any problem folks that can't seem to find their post office. Host or Hostess's just email me and I will let you know if I'm available.
I promise to rate my partners as soon as I open the package or envelope.
My Grading: Extras are always nice to receive. I think the most of us enjoy trinkets and I’m no different but in my grading I leave it strictly to the piece for its grade. If you did the swap and met the criteria then you will get a 5. If the piece shows hard efforts were put forth then definitely a heart will be awarded as well. I’m not looking for perfection I just want the piece to reflect that you’ve taken care in seeing it was done to the best of your abilities.
If you don’t contact me and just leave it up to me to figure out why the project doesn’t arrive in a reasonable amount of time, then I’m nearly forced to give 3’s since I don’t know any other answers. Just a lil communication would go a long way in this situation.
Lastly 1’s will be awarded for just a plain NO SHOW. I will change it when something arrives and again some type of communication would really help.
