About Me

**NOTE***. I slow down (or stop) swapping a TON during the months of May - August with my kid's birthday and our summer activities :)

Sewing (everything but clothes) is my first crafty love, but I'm also pretty crazy for paper crafts. I like making all kinds of mail art, ATCs, and zines, etc. I love layered mixed media art and I'm having a blast playing around with different techniques.

Style-wise: I really like a mix of modern and rustic. I love modern fabrics. I also love wood, metal and clay art/sculptures. Steampunk is pretty neat, I love the old metal and leather combo.

Awkward/Profane humor is always fun. I love laughing, reading, watching funny shows/movies, and crafting.

** I love personal swaps! If you live in the US and would like to swap fabric scraps or quality handmade items, just throw me a message. I'd freak for anything llama (especially the crazy looking ones). I'd also love to swap TM patches, or anything inspired by my TV/Books and likes. **

Favorites

** Want More Crafty inspiration? Check out my TV/Books **

FAVORITE TV: Dr. Who, Game of Thrones, Arrested Development, Reno 911, Firefly/Serenity, Downton Abbey, Walking Dead, Strangers with Candy, Stephen Colbert, Labyrinth, Royal Tenenbaums, Princess Bride, Judge Judy, Edward Scissorhands, Rocky Horror picture Show, Orange is the New Black, Modern Family, Parks and Recreation

FAVORITE BOOKS: Game of Thrones, Wicked series, Discworld, Brave New World, The Other Boleyn Girl, Anything D.H. Lawrence, Wuthering Heights, Outlander series (currently reading) There's more...I'll have to think

FAVORITE OTHER: crazy faced llamas, Grumpy Cat, Wolves, Falkor the Luckdragon, Ludo and just about every other Henson creature Random animal mix ups crack me up

Dislikes

  • Loose glitter in large quantities makes me cringe...I won't die, I swear, but I might gag a bit
  • Christmas ornaments -- we make our own family ornaments, it's our thang :)
  • Sticker slapped ATCs
  • Fake flowers
  • Hair accessories
  • pink, purple, orange, blue jean, old florals, anything frilly/girly/lacy, fluorescents, hippie, or country-kitchen
  • I'm not down with the whole kiddie cartoon, Mickey Mouse and Hello Kitty crazes....but Kawaii is kinda cute!
  • PLEASE don't send me food/candy, earrings, perfume, bath items or lotions
  • PLEASE no religious or inspirational-quote things...I'm quite happy and content as is

If You Need Supply Ideas

  • SEWING:
  • Any fabric/scraps of plain/colored linen
  • Fabric with text
  • Sewing magazines
  • buttons (pin-back or clothing)
  • elastic
  • bias tape, any color/pattern (especially handmade!)
  • spools of thread

  • PAPER CRAFTING:

  • Ephemera (please no junk mail or scrapbook paper, I have tons!)
  • Paper crafting magazines
  • Handcarved stamps
  • Staz on ink pads (used is ok!)
  • any other supplies you enjoy using in painting, collage, journal or ATC making

  • MISC:

  • eyelets
  • leather scraps
  • clay molds
  • resin molds
  • beach glass
  • driftwood

Crafty Ideas

  • Llamas!! (did I say that already?)
  • I'm currently trying to completely fill ATC pages for each of the following subjects:

    • postage people/animals
    • animals in people clothes
    • Edgar Allen Poe
    • Dr Who
    • animal and/or people mashups
  • Paper Crafts: I'd adore any ATCs/handmade postcards etc of the above, snark, wacky, funny, profile based...really, I just love other people's art so go cray

  • I'd love anything related to my Profile...pouches, Teesha Moore patches and/or patch pouches, hooplas, clay figures, painted peg people sets, anything!
  • Art dolls in any medium
  • Decorative or functional bowls (clay, paper mâché, fabric, etc)
  • I love clay or paper mâché figures/creatures
  • I'm obsessed with collecting dimensional scenes (any size) from my TV likes (paper, clay, whatever media).
  • Any kind of fabric/textile art
  • altered anything
  • I really just love anything handmade! especially out-of-the-box odd -- imperfections are awesome, don't be skeered!
  • Pinterest inspiration, I have lots of things I would love in my other Pinterest folders folders

Comment: Thanks, Christy! Terrific postcard, and so true to the design. (Made me see all the things I did wrong!) I love the images you used, and the title SEE...perfect!
Response: No no no Nancy! I just looked at yours and it's GORGEOUS!! Yours has a wonderful flow to it! I thought mine was way too close to the design, I wish I would have done a bit more of my own tweaking. I'm so glad you love it!

Comment: Christy, your Never Ending Art Card is one of the most AWESOME swaps I have ever received!! I Adore it! It is WOW and COOL! :-D . . . I had already looked at Met's description of making one so I was familiar with what I was seeing when I first opened your Styling envelope (fav color combos). And I LOVE how you used the spare paper bits to add to the card!!!!! Outstanding! I am SO inspired to try and make one now. Thanks for this Wonderful swap :-)
Response: Wow, you just made me all giddy on a day that I totally needed it (I'm working my way through a nasty nasty cold, boooo). I LOVE making those cards, it's like 4 mini arts in one. Definitely make one, it's a lot less scary then I thought it would be. I've decided to use all the paint/gelli papers that I'm not crazy about and turn them into art cards...something about folding them up makes the backgrounds look totally different and cool. So thrilled that you love it!

Comment: Christy, sorry late in rating. My husband has been in hospital since end of February and near death for about 2 of those weeks. Have been home long enough to shower and short nap since then. The ATC I received from you was awesome. Again, sorry it has taken me so long to rate
Response: Oh no! So sorry to hear that, I hope he gets well soon!

Haha! I laughed when you said your family would have you committed for serving cucumber infused water! It went pretty well for me - everyone liked it, you should try it, lol! ;-) -Simone

I can't seem to find our Traveling ATCs forum thread, or any others for MA except one..? Any way, love the two homers and the sets to add to look great, they will be fun to finish. Not too many, no worries..!
