My primary interest is ATCs - I've been doing them since 2009, I've also been swapping them since then, starting at a live swap at the local art gallery (those swaps have continued and I try to go to each one). My first trade-able ATCs were made from photos I had taken but I quickly found out that hardly anyone who trades online likes those kinds of cards so I branched out. I've done collage, woven, abstract, and hand-painted/hand-drawn but my current happy place for ATCs are my spirelli (string art) cards. I look forward to trading here at Swap-bot. :)
The only thing I really have for a wishlist is spirelli shapes. The shapes I use for my ATCs are mostly fussy cut by me (yes, I actually have the patience to do that) but I would love some pre-cut, die-cut, or punched out shapes (using card stock) as they are usually the shapes I can't fussy cut (even my patience has a limit!).
I love Harry Potter - both the books and the movies. I love Star Wars and Star Trek but Star Wars got me into science fiction so it squeaks out at number 1. :) I love Volkwagen Beetles - though the only ones I own are diecast toys and I do have a small collection of those...In fact I have small - and large - collections of many things: blue glass (bottles, vases, marbles - anything!), stamps, coins, souvenir pins, textiles, teacups, used gift cards, and more are all stuffed into my limited storage space...Yep, I'm a pack rat. :D
I love receiving ATCs with seahorses, jelly fish, or dolphins (any sea life, really), pandas, Asian themes, vintage themes...I love hand-drawn/hand-painted ATCs, fabric ATCs, woven ATCs, digital ATCs, collaged ATCs...just about anything! My favourite colours are on the cool side of the colour wheel - blues, purples and greens. I am not a fan of zetti or cutesy cards, however.
