About Me

I love anything vintage. I am currently engrossed in making junk journals and have a love of old paper, ephemera and old floral and botanical illustrations. Would love to swap some of my prized paper collection, including old stamps, gardening books, paper and much more. LIKES: Anything paper, vintage and botanical.. DISLIKES: Neon, tie dye and glitter

Favorite Books

My favorite authors are: Barbara Kingsolver, Thrity Umrigar, Erik Larson, Joyce Carol Oates, Ruth Rendell...to name a few.....I am a voracious reader and could not possibly name all my favorite books.

Favorite Crafts

Currently any craft involving paper. I love making books, art and junk journals and on occasion an assembledge piece. In the past I have made baskets, done some batiking, made cards, done origami, made quilts and have done quite a few sewing projects. I have recently started making ATCs.

Other Interests

I love to read and garden. Can’t wait for spring so I can put my hands in the earth.

Favorite Collections

Posrcards, old quilt fabric pieces, Alice in Wonderland books ( no, I do not cut them up for my journals), ephemera of all types, postage stamps, botanical books....and more.

About Me

JJJ-Let’s make a junk journal. This sounds like a very exciting swap. I mostly make “vintage” inspired junk journals. Lots of nature: flowers,birds,animals, mushrooms..I have recently tried adding a little more color to my journals-and especially love green,purple and blue..I love labels, vintage washi and stickers..Although I have never used a digital kit (printer and ink cost issues) I find myself loving some of Tracie Fox and Artymaze’s digital kits-especially the labels…who doesn’t love labels? I have also started experimenting with some eco-dyeing and recently dyed some paper using hibiscus..Also made some eco-prints using the flowers and leaves I have in my garden. I was pleased with the first attempt and will definitely be trying it again. Excited to start this swap. Items I am always grateful to receive: Handwritten ledger sheets Old envelopes Vintage looking washi and washi stickers Old postcard Old photos Eco dyed paper Labels Handmade paper Lace Any old ephemera Sari silk Small botanical illustrations

About Me

Things I’m Always Happy To Receive: Vintage Anything:wallpaper, postcards,old envelopes, letters,documents,ledgers, small botanical color illustrations or book pages, labels and Tim Holtz anything……..

Comment: Well, Diane. How to start? I like to think I have a decent vocabulary, and I have always sprinkled some “big words” into my conversations…not to show off, but because that’s how my mind works. However, I find myself a bit (a LOT!) lost for words here. This adorable “scrappy” journal made my day…no!, it made my week! The amount of detail…your beautiful papers, pockets, tags, and so forth…gorgeous silk ribbon and other stunning embellishments…yes. All of it! And then the additional little folder full of more wonderful papers! You. Are. Amazing. And this time around, I am the lucky one. Thank you so much.
Response: So glad you like it…I loved making it..

Comment: Very nicely done! Love the goodies you enclosed-such fun and varied stuff! The goose paper it was wrapped in was darling-so vintage looking and I like how you decoupaged a piece of napkin on the envelope-very creative. Thanks for a wonderful swap! Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year of Swapping!

Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you for the absolutely gorgeous October junk journal. It's a feast for the eyes... birds and butterflies and nature! I am beyond impressed with your skill at manipulating paper into something so lovely. I'm going to play "how did she do that?" and try to re-create the designs of your intriguing tags and pockets. Many thanks!!!!!
Response: So glad you like it.
