I am a huge nemophilist. I love camping and being outdoors. I work at a creative and active adult day program with people living with Dementia on Vancouver Island on the Canadian west coast. I am hugely introverted, musical, and creative. I love art/craft exchanges and am super stoked to find this community.
I love photography, especially photos from the first half of the 1900s. I greatly appreciate things from the past. They have stories. In my crafts, in addition to vintage ephemera, I also include things that look vintage, even if they are not from a long time ago. It adds to the story I am sharing within my own art.
I currently mostly enjoy making mixed media pieces and artist trading cards. I love layering and incorporating many smaller crafts onto bigger pieces as well as mixing paint, paper, photography, and rubber stamp ink and images. I find layering textures and colours really satisfying
Tuesday July 4th 2017 - I am super bummed to have been rated a 1 for a beauty package that I sent out and has not been received yet. It's super disheartening to be unable to join swaps I am interested in because of this rating. I am hoping the package has just been misplaced and will arrive shortly. Cheers!

Nicola's address is not available to me anymore to resend, probably because she has numerous 1s on her profile and is partially suspended. I have sent her a message and she has not responded, even though it appears she has read the message. If anyone knows how to remove a 1 from a person who is partially suspended, I would love to know. Thanks!
August 23 2017 I sent a message to swap-bot admin a couple weeks ago and haven't heard back yet. I probably just have to live with the 1 rating. Thanks to those who sent messages with ideas or support! Cheers.
Sept 9 2017 I am going to use the stuff in the resend package for other swaps today. Now that I have raised my ratings to over 4.9, I can join a lot more of swaps I like since getting the 1 rating. I don't think I will be sending the resend as I do not think she is coming back with twenty 1's.
Some crafty things that I would love include but are not limited to:
strips of lace
brads of all shapes, sizes, and colours
old keys or key images
anything vintage or vintage looking
Steampunk, Victorian and Space themes
nature themes and fairies, gnomes, fantasy and forest creatures and folklore
trees, leaves, plants
Dark, Hallowe'en, Witchy, and Spooky themes
really sparkly paper
rubber stamped paper in all above themes
photography/imagery in all above themes
Woodblock or rubber stamps
Old photography or postcards
die cuts and wood or wood like elements
anything for mixed media art making like artist trading cards, inchies, cards, smash books,paper art on wood/canvas/cardboard etc
anything handmade, especially by you
**Tom Holtz Ideology "Paperie Salvage Stickers", or more high end mixed media use style stickers or paper stickers are the only kinds of stickers I use in craft.
I love rich colours, deep dark reds, rich browns, oranges, blues, and greens. I prefer nature themes and woodland animals. Mossy and inviting. While I like both in my crafts, I prefer silver colours over gold, and coppery colours are particularly wonderful!
No foam shapes please
I am not interested in city postcards.
No stickers, I just don't use them
No religious or holiday stuff please (unless I have specifically joined a swap for it)
I am not a fan of childish stamps or images
I am not a fan of princess or Disney stuff I do used crown in my craft though
Please, if we do a swap and you like to write or keep penfriends, include a letter and I will likely write you back. I am particularly looking for penfriends that like to include crafts and papers with their letters because while I like to write and craft, doing both for one package is so satisfying. It's so exciting to get a letter along with some creative inspiration as well as make lovely little packages, cards, and crafts for penfriends!
