A Little Bit About Me

If you do not receive a swap from me, please PM me before rating. I always send out in a timely fashion as I own a mail and parcel store. I swap for the pure joy and fun of it (I call it my HaPpY MaIL), and although I dont like to be flaked on, I am more concerned about giving than receiving. If you are going to be late or have any troubles at all, just send me a message. I understand that things come up all I ask is to communicate.

A NOTE on HEARTS: Anything that was created from the heart with some effort behind it and a little time perusing my profile will get you a heart!

I have been crafting since I was little, and professionaly for over 8 years now.

Art and crafting is a very important part of my life and I make time for it.

Things that I Love

I am a vintage girl and love all things vintage such as ephemera, bits and pieces in my mail and I am a happy camper! I also love:

  • Ephemera of any kind
  • Old yellowed book pages
  • Steampunk Jewelry
  • Metal parts (Steampunk Style)
  • Clock parts (small pieces)
  • Old keys, clock parts
  • Pieces of jewelery for making altered art
  • Navy items (my son is military)
  • Old theatre programs
  • Old yellowed dictionary pages
  • Books and pages in a foreiqn language
  • Fairies and Dragonflies (I collect)
  • Mixed Media Artwork
  • ATC's of all kinds
  • Digital Collage Sheets
  • Shabby Chic style papers and embellies
  • Collage items of any kind
  • Old sewing patterns (thin tissue kind)
  • Shabby Chic or Vintage anything
  • Altered Journals (Handmade only)

Favorite Colors

  • Red, Orange, Brown and Black

Things I Don't Care For

  • Satanic, Torture or Cruelty themes or items
  • Least favorite colors: pink and teal
  • Cigarette Smoke
  • Not into bold and bright colors, papers, or themes in general. I am more into natural and neutral colors in general, but like dark purples, reds etc.

Favorite Television

I am an HGTV Junkie, Design Star, House Hunters, and anything having to do with design and color.

Favorite Movies

My all time fave movie is "The Notebook" even my 17 year old son (at the time) cried his eyes out.

Steampunk Genre Swap Info

I love steampunk. According to the genre, this is my Steampunk persona and it is pretty accurate.

You are the Explorer, the embodiment of steampunk’s adventuring spirit. For you, clothing should be rugged and reliable, and just as functional as it is attractive. You probably prefer khaki or leather, and your accessories are as likely to include weapons as technological gizmos. You probably wear boots and gloves, and maybe a pith helmet. Most of what you wear is functional, and if you happen to wear goggles people had better believe that you use them. In addition to Victorian exploration gear, your outfit probably includes little knickknacks from your various travels. Above all, you are a charming blend of rugged Victorian daring and exotic curiosity.
