About Me

HI! Im back! I was on hiatus from swapping but I couldn't stay away much longer! I recently moved from So. Cali to S. Carolina and the change is great! I have more time to do swaps now and I cant wait to get started. :)

Let me just say this...it makes me so so sad to see that ugly "1" on my rating!! I truly pride myself in swapping, and never had a problem. I wish my rater would come online and re-rate soon so I can get rid of that dang "1"! (i sent her a package 2 TIMES!!!) lol ok im done ranting, now this important message :).....

Please PM me before you rate if you did not receive a swap from me. Thankscute-panda-emoticon-021.gif image by myem0

Please PM me before you rate me, if you do not receive anything. Thanks !

Well about me huh....hmmm... there is plenty to say- Im a confessed craft-a-holic, I literally dream about craft ideas at least 4 nights a week. Anytime I see something shabby I always think...what can I do to make that pretty :) I love chicano inspired art. Frida Kahlo is my idol (yes, i know she was a bisexual alcoholic but she was talented as hell lol) Salvador Dali is another favorite artist of mine. I also think religious art is awesome...and anything to do with the color red! I love swapping, I think its great to meet people from all over the world and see how much you have in common with them. I love tattoos and all vintage art. I find beauty in everything. My lucky numbers are 3 and 13.

I reuse packaging.

I have 3 furry kids who love treats (all dogs:Gia Chico & LIl D http://www.mountain-skies.org/images/dogs.gif

Favorite Crafts


My main mediums are: Acrylic painting, watercolor paints & pastels. I also love rubber stamping, scrap booking, making ATC'c, inchies, Fb's, label bags, origami, and deco books. In the swapping world I go by Red Maga, but here on swap-bot, I use Red Lucha, I like to separate the two so I know where stuff comes from, just in case someone forgets to add their info :)

I like to send out bulk swaps of Friendship Books and various bags. Keep posted on my Snail Mail Blog http://vivalasnailmail.blogspot.com/ for pics of swaps i send out, pages I decorate in decos and giveaways!!

If you have a Love of Inchies, please join my group Inchie Love Group here

I recently became interested in jewelry making and I would love to learn how to crochet.

I like to take old, recycled and found objects and spruce them up but still keep them looking a lil distressed.

I love Postcards! I have a few photo albums full :)

I found a new interest in making alters years ago when I made my first Dia de Los Muertos setup (its a tradition that ive grown up around but never really embraced it)


Favorite Movies

To start, any movie with Johnny Depp (even in French), Marilyn Monroe movies, Moulin Rouge, Closer, Penelope, I think there is just to much to list but most importantly, Im a huge Twilight fan! (http://www.joblo.com/newsimages1/twilight-banner.jpg)
