About Me

I'm a high school English teacher. I also teach art classes to younger students during the summer. I love my cats, and I adore goats! (Although I no longer own goats, I raised Toggenburgs for years--I miss them terribly!) I'm a dancer (ballet, modern, lyrical) and I enjoy gardening--flowers, especially. I do a variety of art, mostly collage mixed media. As of late I have been working on altered books and art journals, ATC's, and hand-made cards.

ATC themes

Here are some themes I enjoy collecting:

Realistic animals/sea creatures from around the world

Birds from around the world (I have an "animals of the alphabet" and "birds of the alphabet" series I'm continually adding to)

Extinct birds (sadly there are so many!)

Goats! (of course)

Amazing architecture, windows/doors/arches



Vintage ladies

Vintage or non-Disneyfied fairy tales and nursery rhymes

Ladies painted by Dante Rossetti

French General style, or Shabby Chic

Postage Stamp people


Found poetry/regular poetry

Well-done zetti and well-done steampunk


I pledge to be faithful with sending and rating my swaps. I prefer not to receive any extras UNLESS it's artwork, or something related to my profile. I have so much stuff I'd rather not accumulate more items that I may not end up liking/using. If there's a problem with any of my swaps, PLEASE let me know before rating me, and I will make it right!

A Few of My Favorite Things!

Used postage stamps: flowers, animals, sea creatures, butterflies, cool "art" stamps, foreign stamps, interesting faces

Warm colors are my favorite (yellow, melon, tangerine, poppy, rust, etc.), but I'm up for pretty much anything

Mellow pink and yellow papers/images for a big mixed-media collage I'm working on. Vintage looking? Botanicals, nature? Not really sure where I'm going with this yet, so I'm open to suggestion. :) Images can be large, too, (or small) since this will be a decent-sized piece to hang on the wall above my bed.

Vintage playing cards with cool art/pictures on them

German foil/scrap (especially blue or chocolate border trims, or wings in any color, but pretty much anything would be faulous!)

Art doll/zetti doll collage parts

Rub-ons (non-cutesey images, nature, or decorative flourishes etc.)

Flat wooden laser-cut embellishments

Cavalini and/or Papaya paper/notecards/images/ephemera (or similar)

Vintage botanical or bird images/papers

Crushed velvet ribbon, or other "vintage-looking" ribbon

Personalized address labels (goats!)

Things I prefer not to receive

Nothing too cutesy/frou-frou (Hello Kitty, really girly stuff, etc.), "dark", or sexy/risque; (family friendly images please!); no Halloween items etc.
