Update: March 2017
After a 3 year hiatus I am back to fix the mess I made. I do not plan on swapping I just want to right the wrong I did. Maybe if I trust myself enough I will, but as of right now I will not be swapping.
I am a simple Texan, with an amazing appetite for all things ATC, art doll, altered art, dotee and zine related. I really put a lot of time and effort into my dolls, so please if you ever recieve one, give it a good home.
I am a student and and artist as well. Art is my life, and I find a true appreciation for those who show their love of art in the crafty items they make. To me it blurs the line between art and craft when we create things like ATC's or altered dolls, zines etc. I enjoy the thought of us being a community, faceless as we are, but we are still a strong community.
My first ATC I ever made:
Currently I'm founder of Softie Lovers where we create softies, felties, stuffies, and even amigurumi.
I'm co-founder of Dotees of all Kinds! and 12 Months of Dotee, so please let me know if you want more info on making dotees, or softies and if you want to be in any of my groups ^_^
Tardiness/ Late on Swaps
I am a laid back person and swapper. Please if you are going to be late just let me know. I understand life gets crazy but ignoring me or not communicating wont help. Also you can always make up your swap if you dissapear then reappear. So dont be afraid... ^_^
Im really, really into:
I want to get more into doll trading as it seems so few people make them.
Im not into post cards unless they are handmade/handdrawn. ^_^
I always appreciate everyones style of work so dont be afraid to try something new, but please dont just slap things together ~_~
One on One Trades
Here are a few examples of the work I have made for swap-bot!! Please PM me if you ever want to do a private trade!!
Art Journal Pages
I love all types of music, yes everything from Rap/ Hip Hop- Classical- Jazz- Rock-Metal-Country- Alternative, all of it!!!
I do however have a very big spot in my heart for Grunge music and no I dont mean just Nirvana. All the great music of the 90's is still with me. Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Live, Collective Soul, Alice in Chains, etc...I love music so much so if you ever need a recommendation just ask I bet I have something perfect for you!!
I love collecting ATC's, Dotees, journal pages, unique art, art dolls, and zines.
If anyone ever wants to do a personal swap. I usually do cutesy, pretty dolls and cards but I am very willing and open to do the morbid, scary and ugly.
Just let me know.^_^
Some dolls I made:
I love polymer clay faces, and molds. Charms, , stamps, ribbon, markers, gelpens, and inkpads and also a few of the things I collect. And Im really in love with paper flowers, pretty cutouts, and little items for shrines. I would love any Virgin Mary and Frida Kahlo images or charms.

I stumbled upon your profile and those dolls are AMAZING!! You are so gifted!!!
Happy holiday wishes! In the New Year, may you be blessed with laughter, peace, and love.
Those dolls you've made are AWESOME!!! I especially love the one with the X'd out eyes in the middle of the 5 and The 2 in the picture together above your music section, if you made those.
So pissed that I missed out on the swaps you're hosting. They seem like lots of fun. I was ill for a while and missed them. :(
