I am new at paper arts, and not very skilled or talented at them, but I enjoy attempting to make them none-the-less.
I like books (lots of different genres), reading, libraries, old book stores, paper, paper crafts, mail art, collage, typography, numbers, dictionary pages, botanical prints and other nature-inspired items, "found" items (and art made from them), linen, cotton, maps, spirituality and movies. My favorite flower(s) are pink peonies, and my favorite colors are navy blue, maroon, and neutral colors like linen, cream, silver, and gray.
I like pretty papers in the colors mentioned above and interesting vintage papers or card for collage, ATC's, and gluebooks.
I love spending time at the ocean and watching the ocean, the surf, the sky, and the stars. I don't know why I don't live closer to it, lol..
I am "fairly" new at this swapping stuff, so if I mess up and do something incorrectly, please message me. I would appreciate being given the opportunity to resolve any issues before receiving a negative rating. I send all my mail directly from the post office, and I mark my swaps as "sent" after I have dropped them off at the post office.
I always rate my swaps as soon as I receive and open them. I pick my mail up 2-3 times a week.
Please rate me after you have received my swap. No one should have to chase down ratings. It's difficult to get off the ground here at Swap-bot when you don't receive ratings for some of your swaps.
I listen to all types of music. Some of my favorites are:
Dave Matthews Band
John Mellencamp (his older music)
I read a lot of different types of books: fiction, non-fiction, childrens', YA, personal development, spirituality.
Two of my very favorite YA books are both by Kate DiCamillo:
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
The Magician's Elephant
I like a lot of different types of movies, too. I like:
some comedy (not too raunchy)
classic Christmas movies,
and romantic comedies (Nora Ephron style)...
This is Us
Better Call Saul
The Big Bang Theory
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
mixed media collage
ATC's (although I am fairly new at making these!)
almost anything involving paper
found objects and/or trinkets, and found bits of interesting paper.
clear or wooden stamps for inking (botanical/nature stamps)(not cutesy images)
various small collectible figures (approx. 3" or smaller)(Snoopy and Ziggy are favorites).
my favorite colors are navy blue, ivory, silver, and light gray (light neutral colors).
I would gladly accept handmade postcards/ envelopes/stickers, or library-related ephemera, botanical stamps (for inking) or stamped images.
If you receive my name in a postcard swap, I am perfectly okay with receiving an unsigned postcard in an envelope instead of a "naked" postcard (Is there a swapbot term for that?), and "naked" is fine, too.
Please do not send loose glitter or sequins which may spill over when removing contents from envelopes.
