About Me

Note: my vehicle has broke down and I will not be able to get to the post office easily. Please be patience with feedback, I will get to it as soon as I can. Thank you.

Love to meet new fellow artists and crafters! I like to paint on everything: canvas, wood, walls, shoes, clothing, furniture … if there is a surface, I will probably work on it.

I ALWAYS rate. if you are missing a rating from me is because I did not receive anything. * I have found that different people interpret art differently, if for any reason you have issues in a swap, please contact me before rating, and I will do my best to make it right *

What I really like the most are:

Science fiction cards, the Cosmos in general, specially the Sun,
Atlantis myth and the ocean, Mermaids & Sea Horses vintage Disney, vintage Looney Tunes or anything Hanna Barbera ( Bugs, Sylvester, Duffy, taz, Flintstones, etc) Fat old feisty ladies Fairy tales classics. Specially Cinderella & Sleeping Beauty. Christian crosses and depictions of the Virgin Mary Kawaii anything, specially food and hello kitty characters..
Shopkins Orchids Sunflowers Birds Lions I also love horses, and everything country!

I collect ATCs ( with no raise embellishments, please), and Hand Made (flat) or Hand painted or drawn well made PostCards.
I prefer my PostCards naked and stamped!!!! I have grown found of Chuck O Cardboard postcards, specially those from beer labels. Some of them are so cool and colorful. Feel free to send me a chuck of cardboard for a postcard, just make sure is clean please!

I also love making art dolls with any media, specially embroidery and felt.

Favorite color is Teal (blue/green ocean shade). My favorite flower is a carnation.

I am one of those girls who does not do pink or purple. I do not mind receiving items in those colors, if that is what you want to do!

Favorite season is Fall / Autumn. I love specially the colors of the season and its deep hues. I also love red, white, and blue. I am very patriotic, and love my country.

Dislikes: I like almost every theme, as long as is not Gothic or gore, and no blood. Not really much into vampire, zombies, skulls or day of the dead, or anything evil-ish either .... nothing dark or morbid please! Trash to treasure. Dogs (had a realty bad experience a few years back). I respect everyone's believes and choices, but please no gay, LGBT, political artwork or items either.

I no longer watch TV, very rarely I do but when I did my Favorite TV Shows were:

Stargate SG -1
Stargate Atlantis
Original Star Trek series.
Drop dead Diva
Face Off I still watch (but not the gory stuff LOL Cartoon: Beavis and Butthead, Power puff Girls, Johnny Bravo, Classic Mickey and Gang, Class Looney Tunes (specially Dafty Duck), RugRats, Flintstone's, and The Jetson's.

My favorite things to collect are ATCs and hand painted, drawn or collage postcards. not as much the store bought ones. I collect artwork, and not just plain mail, except for guitar picks!

No matter your skill, I would be very happy with something made from the heart! Rather than a store bought one. Please no political at all, or religious (unless Christian Bible verses) cards or postcards. . Things that are slapped together with little thought make me very sad.

I have been lucky to sell some of my art, including ACEOS. My specify trade is oil paintings, and I have sold some over the years.

lately crazy about the 5D Full Drill Square Diamond Painting

I am a soap and bath products aficionado. My excess inventory is listed on eBay. I have collections 4 times a year that are themed for the season and holidays, and I only use professional materials that are vegan friendly, gluten free, with no animal testing. Check my eBay link above if interested!

I currently do not have pets. I suffer from allergies, and just the touch of certain animals or plants send me on a frenzy, so (please be mindful of that when sending me anything that is not handled around animals if possible).

Please, PRETTY PLEASE do not send me . glitter, (confetti ok, as I use it for shaker cards), items that are dirty, or have a strong animal, smoke, or perfume smell. Not big on foam stickers either. I have a huge overflow of supplies, do not feel bad not to send extra, I have almost no space left. I still will give hearts. I love giving hearts, specially when things are sent with love.

I send out most of my swaps the first day partners are assigned. If for any reason you haven't received something from me in a swap, please message me and I'll resend. I would never just not send something. Also if you are a host who needs an angel, I am always happy to help!

Please note that I go to my PO Box twice a week, so it might take me a couple of days after receiving to rate the sender, but I will always rate. If after a considerable period of time I have not rate, is because I did not receive it.

I also have a ridiculous amount of supplies and stuff, actually, it has taken over my house! So I really do not need ephemera, papers, or anything at the moment. Do not feel guilty about no sending extra stuff, I really have way too much, I will still give you a heart when things a lovingly made! But if you are a soap maker, I would love samples of Cold Process soap!

I post what I have made for swapbot to my Flickr account. If you want to be surprised, don't click on the link!. You will probably find a spoiler!
