About Me

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:

Groups

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... ^_^

Favorite Crafts

Im really, really into:

  • ATC's
  • Art dolls
  • Journal pages
  • One of a kind art pieces
  • Softies
  • Zines!

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

Art Dolls


TAGS!!!

Favorite Music

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!!

What I will collect

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:

Wish List

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 personslly love wierd art fibers, I use them for dotee hair so please clip off a piece if you can and send it my way. I do not use furry fibers at all so please keep those. I have gotten into making my our art yarn but will welcome any made by anyone else.

Comment: This swap experience was a huge disappointment to me, and I wish I had rated a 1 for it sooner, but I foolishly did not want to be the first person to give you a bad rating. :/ ETA: yes, I did wait too long to rate this. We were in touch at the time via pm and I did send a pm asking for a tracking number because I hadn't gotten it. I do regret not rating sooner.
Response: I'm very disappointed that this rating came 2years after the swap had closed. With my current history I know people won't believe me but I did send...but that was 2 years ago. I will of course be sure my partner gets something because I don't want them disappointed.

Comment: Meg, I cannot express how much I love the doll you created for me. I can't stop looking at it! It is amazing. I LOVE that it represents a mother's love because the love I feel for my children is the most profound I have ever felt. The colors are so pleasing and perfectly matched! Also, it is a wonderful little bird with her sweet little egg baby! I can't get over it. Thank you so very much. It will always be one of my favorite pieces of art. Let's swap again sometime!
Response: I would swap with you in an instant. I am so happy you like the doll. She took so much time to get her just right. Very happy she has a good home with you.

Comment: Edited: Got it today! Thanks so much - I love the dolls as does my daughter who is playing with them VERY carefully at the moment! I love how you have used the roving for the different hairstyles too & thanks for the extra packet of wool - I don't have those colours so they're great! Off to re-rate you now.. I'm hoping to receive this....I never received the original that you sent on the 10th, and I am waiting for a resend. I will re-rate once received.
Response: Very happy you got this new package. I was getting worried again. It was great fun making those dolls and I'm very happy you and your daughter like them. We can always do a private trade later for more:)

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.

kiddomerriweather on Oct 16, 2013:

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. :(
