About Me

My name is Nicole, and I was born and raised in Pennsylvania, and I have lived here my entire life. I am a mother, and I have amazing twin boys. They are fraternal twins (not identical). I have an amazing fiancé, and a dog named Bella and Bailey!


I love creative journaling, junk journals, glue books, collage art, art journals, quote journals, mixed media, swaps, ATCs, collage fodder, mail art, travelers notebooks, Hobinichi techo, composition books, gelli printing, postcards etc!

Some of my favorite supplies that I love to use are Washi tape, postcards, art prints, digitals, fabric, lace, embellishments, die cuts, vintage book pages, vintage children’s book pages, botanical book pages, and book pages in other languages etc. I love ledger paper and antique papers, vintage magazines, vintage sewing patterns, retro book pages or ads, ephemera, receipts, checks etc!

I absolutely LOVE beautiful handmade items. I love receiving a piece of someone’s art in the mail or a decorated envie😀

Some other things I would love to receive are handmade tags, postcards, ATC cards, shaker cards, die cuts, gelli prints, vintage ephemera, embellishments, altered paper clips, stuffed pockets, flip books, embellishment books, tuck ins, tassels, and ephemera/ledger papers, washi tape samples. I would love anything handmade that I could put in my creative journal or junk journal! I love stickers too and washi tape - kawaii, cute, vintage theme, etc!

I love when I receive a swap with a decorated envelope. That’s always exciting almost as exciting as the swap:) Also, I don’t mind if you send in an envelope you’ve made or recycled from a past swap or a magazine, book page, calendar etc....as long as its made well so it won’t break open and it isn’t dirty😂 I enjoy recycling magazines or scrapbook papers and being able to use them again.

I love paint swatches, rubber or wooden stamps, greeting cards, notecards, stationary, postcards, distress ink or distress oxide spray or pads any colors, colored ink, gilding wax, stencils, embossing powder, wax seals/wax stamps, letter stationary sets, postcards, charms, pretty beads , dangles, etc ! Lastly, I love die cuts that I can use in other creative projects.

As far as postcards go I am ok with zazzle, red bubble, store purchased, Etsy, tourist postcards , and any handmade postcards! I would love to see your art 😀

I like all postcards non tourist cards, blue cats postcards, vibrant postcards, vintage postcards, bold color postcards, folklore postcards, Lou Paper, tourist cards, illustrated, artist, whimsical, gnomes, inspirational women, Frida, Disney, Red riding hood, Alice, spooky, Halloween postcards, Christmas or any holidays, all cute postcards😀 I love all of them 😀 Well except add free…..

DISLIKES: PLEASE DONT SEND ME anything that stinks or is dirty

PLEASE NOTE- If I sign up for a swap I will 100% commit to sending it and will not flake! Therefore, if I’m your partner and you don’t receive something from me then please send me a message so I can resend it to you. I know that when people work hard taking their time to send something to their partner, and they are flaked on it’s rather disappointing. Therefore, I’m even willing to angel a swap if any of the hosts need😀

Lastly, if you would like to see some of my swapbot swaps that I received or have sent out in swaps then you can check out my YouTube channel I posted under ky website. Also, I would LOVE if you would subscribe to my youtube channel and help support me on ky creative journey. I just started about a year ago and I enjoy having a place I can document and share my swaps I sent, received, as well as junk journal shares, and Etsy hauls etc!

m grateful and thankful to participate in such a fun platform, and I am so happy I found this site. I really enjoy swapping and it has become a weekly hobby! Thank you to everyone who has allowed me to participate in their swaps, and thanks to all the wonderful amazing people that have sent me swaps!!!!!

Comment: Thank you for your 4/19 email with a picture of your (💗 beautiful!) journal spread and subsequent post to the Junk Journal blog on 4/21. I wouldn't have minded the lateness if I had received any sort of communication from you or if you had posted something closer to the 4/14 deadline prior to my 4/17 message, but I feel obligated to rate accurately per swapbot rules, especially as there appeared to be a pattern of other missing swaps from you on that same blog--however, I do hope that you continue to create your art and wish you lots of happy swapping in future.
Response: Hello. I have always posted my swaps and I was still getting used to the blog

Hey Nicole! I hope you are doing ok---

I have looked EVERYWHERE on Junk Journal Journey for your Scavenger Junk Journal Round 17 but was only able to find some picture-less comments and a single picture of your journal spread for Round 15 (which seems to have been posted by mistake to the comments for Round 12).

Please post a picture ASAP (and maybe send a heads up to the host/group if you're having issues?) or figure out some other arrangement--an email would be ok.

--closing with a picture of Frida because I thought you would like it, and maybe we all could use some inspiration:

soyprincesa2 on Mar 2, 2022:

Wow!!! That junk journal page was amazing! Holy cow I loved how you had the fabric, the illustration of the dessert and the vintage woman. It was all so beautiful. Thank you for sending it to me even though we weren't partners. I like to see how everyone interprets the theme. My book is getting so chunky. I am excited! I hope that you are too.

I'm snozehann on IG :D so far I've already made it to prompts no.7 LOL I keep it simple. But I didn't post all of them on IG. Just the one I feel like worth a spotlight hahaha I don't wait just go forward with the prompts BC it helps me to keep my anxiety at bay. Got GAD (generalized anxiety disorders) so journaling really helps me. On the fairly good day I mean. If not, I can barely do the glue-ing :) Hope to see your pages for this prompts, Nicole 💕 What's your IG?

infphann on Jun 29, 2021:

Hi Nicole 👋🏽 :) Did you noticed Meg's junkjournal July project? It looks fun.. I think I will join but maybe I won't do it everyday & for 30 days. I'm bad with schedule & stuff 😅 How about you? Think wanna join in? 😉

infphann on Jun 20, 2021:

Sorry for spamming but, I just re read your profile & I saw u wrote 'Mary Higgins Clark' ! Haha.. I just bought 1 of her book! There's a clearance sale in one of the bookstores here & then I saw the book, I thought why not try it bc I liked the genre too haha.. its title is Night Time is My Time. So far I'm liking it 😉

infphann on Jun 20, 2021:

Hello again 👋🏽 Right?! She's so inspiring! I love watching her vids too eventho I don't think I know I can't achieved something like what she did still her showing all the processes she took, stuff that she used helped me making my own version lol Also, can't wait to see your take on this round! It seems like I'm your partner again 😁
