My Promise

I love this site and the joy it brings! I try to send quality swap packages, and hope for the same in return. I love to create and give. I send out all swaps on time, so if you haven't received something from me, please contact me!

badge every swap I receive (or don't receive!) It may take a few weeks but I will rate you or contact you if your swap has not arrived. There is no need to message me. I want to make your experience swapping on this site a good one.

About Me

I'm mostly interested in exchanging art and handmade items. I am a paper artist, I am not a scrapbook-er.

Sooooooo you know, many of my designs are simple and "unfussy." I call it Simple Elegance. I believe simplicity to be a design element, and I ALWAYS put effort into my work. While my style is not Japanese, think along those lines...less is more.

Feel free to send me your style. I like surprises. Be creative!

Also, I am not easily offended.


Hearts and Extras:

I give hearts for swaps that makes my heart sing, extras have nothing to do with it. I even give hearts on postcard swaps!


I am a unique paper item/letter pressed/cool notebook/different envelope/quality gift card...freak! I love them all! I like paper with graph lines. I LOVE foreign run of the mill envelopes, paper bags, stationery etc. Please no book pages, advertising, or sheet music.

I like to make books. Any bookmakers out there?

In the postcard arena I like handmade cards, artsy & edgy ad cards, & cards reflecting other likes I have listed on my profile.

Matchbox Art: I don't care for filled matchboxes ...so feel free to DECORATE the inside instead. There used to be lot's O swaps with decorated insides, but not so much any more. I promise I won't rate a 3 for not filling the box if the inside is decorate. I just don't like/want that tiny stuff inside.

I love inexpensive fountain pens with ink, shrines, matchbox art, rocks, assemblage art, hand decorated paper, bento, handmade books, beaded items, needle books, digital art, handmade wallets/purses/bags, art dolls, creative writing, bowls, pottery, glass, zines, graphic arts, felted items, handmade ephemera, and handmade household items.

I like retro (not vintage,) coffee, clean lines, modern, Christian religion, urban, Angels, bizzarro, quirky, clever, strange, off beat and dark humor. I like mermaids, gnomes, the moon, Cats (Pets, not tigers, lions, etc), Quarter Horses,robots, the Northern Lights, dreams, sci fi, water, snow, storms, the woods, lightning, birch trees, Lake Superior, violets, lilly of the valley, lilacs, Hello Kitty, Charlie Brown and his crew, Black Watch tartan, and craftsman style.

Colors I prefer include blue, turquiose, tan, and white....beachy colors. I like orange and dark pink.

I LOVE glass, paper, and ribbon beads. Small holed, CUTE, wood, and (yuck) plastic beads will get the heave ho at my house.

I have pierced ears, and prefer silver to gold. I have small wrists. Bracelets around 7" fit me best.


No hearts here....PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE ... No scraps of paper (specialty or plain), pencils, Stamped images, ball point pens, sharpie markers, erasers, books, pages from books, sheet music, coffee mugs, tags, die cuts, playing cards, loose sequins, little do dad's for art, confetti, dollar store/discount items, ankle socks, Doo Wap or 50's items, small stickers, Disney, food, tea, candy, lotions, makeup, scents, or consumables. Thank you but, I'm not interested in run of the mill paper from the US including pads of paper, and sticky notes.

CUTE, country or scrapbook styles. I prefer wilder, creative, bold, elegant, and thought provoking art.

I don't care for Pastel colors, and rust.

I don't need ribbon.

Thank you but, I have too much STUFF! I like to keep things purposeful, beautiful and simpLe.

Putting children's personal medical issues on the World Wide Web.

Swappers who want a swap changed because they don't celebrate holidays. Hello? Find another swap, don't be so wrapped up in your declarations that everyone else has to hear about them & change for you.

I don't like dirty, used, clean out your stash left overs! Although I would love to have a cigarette (I quit ages ago,) I don't like the smell on swap item.

I snarl at swaps that do not identify swap-bot, the name of the swap and swapper. I am in a lot of swaps. It's hard to figure out where a swap package came from with out your help!

OK, thank you for reading that!

Comment: I LOVE these little painted cacti! Your colors are amazing--I have twinkling H20colors and I'm going to fish through them to find similar colors before I begin mine. Love that you chose different blossom colors for each. Thanks, also, for those beautiful embellishments! You've really inspired me to begin on mine ;+)

Thank you for the Matchboxes on our private swap. They are lovely!

jjhere on Apr 16, 2015:

We have a lot in common! I love to cook 'real' food, make books, love all things paper, I'm a smidge quirky and off-kilter. ;) Looking forward to making some ATCs for you.

CarlyJo on Dec 15, 2014:

Thank you so much for the angel for the advent package I was flaked on. The hand made items will brighten my house and look great on my mini Christmas tree. Thank you, best wishes for you and yours.

10/6/14 finally rated a 5, after sending her a RAK, & after I contacted her and strongly suggested she rate me. Caution! Not sure what her game is!
