Born in the year of the Dragon, I'm a professional artist, photographer, sculptor, crafter. Love cats, dogs (especially Borzoi, Dachshunds, Greyhounds, Whippets,) horses, swans, butterflies, dragonflies, peacocks, doves, roses, orchids, dolphins, seashells, faux pearls & faux jewels, rhinestones, sequins. I draw, paint, rubber stamping, print making, ATC's, jewelrymaking, decorate mail envelopes, create & swap friendship books, deco books, label bags, used postage stamps (worldwide, all themes,) postcards (mostly Florida as I live there now,) small post-it note pads, etc.
Enjoy receiving your mail art, decorated envelopes, your own creative piece of artwork, ATC's or as a greeting card. Also love to swap envelope full of used postage stamps, decorative papers, stickers, ribbons, bits of lace, sequins, pictures, etc., to be used to make more art mail, card collages, ATC's as art. I love to create art & share it with others. I want to see your art, crafts, photos, whatever you want to share with me as I know you will inspire me with your own creative works. Please No confetti, chain letters, mail from Prisoners. I do want to swap FB's, Deco's with you. Thank you for sharing & your swaps!
I ship my larger, fuller, odd-sized packages to swappers with USPS delivery confirmation tracking #'s on them to help you track the package & for me know you received my package.
Whoops, almost forgot: You can send your child's (children's) artwork to me as part of your swap. Your child's ATC, small piece of 2-D artwork that fits into an envelope, I will accept as part of a private swap. Also your own artwork as part of a swap. And, lastly, you & your child's artwork done together I will accept in a private swap. Private message me that you want to send artwork to me & tell me what you want in return swap: FL postcards, used postage, sheets of rubberstamped images (I use waterproof ink on quality paperstock for ATC-making,) etc.
My worse fear: (fantasy scenario) phone call from my post office - "Hello Ms. Smith, your artwork is here, folded in half & on fire. We're trying to get the fire out with a fire extinguisher, but you'll have to come to the post office to pick it up. There're be no claim to file as the package wasn't registered or insured. Thank you for using the US postal service and have a nice day."
Police arrive at my apt: "Mam, there's no sense in getting upset over a bad experience with the post office. Please step away from the easel, put your paint brush down & no one gets sketched, OK? "
Please understand I have Fibromyalgia, asthma, seasonal allergies, food allergies, cat allergy (though sending me a postcard or envelope from apt, house with cats is OK.) My immune system is broken. Worse season for me is Spring & tree pollen, next summer - mold, mildew (please check items for dust, mold, mildew before sending,) grass pollen, then late summer - fall with ragweed, mold. My body can't tolerate high heat of summer, strong sun, so I must stay indoors in A/C, this may cause me to send your swap late. I'm sorry for this. Rest of the year I try to control the house dust mites & their residue. Thank you all for helping to keep me going living life, love doing art & sharing it.
