About Me

I collect:

art dolls, ATCs, decos/chunky books, matchbox shrines, inchies, postcards, postage stamps and artistamps, zines, doodles (yes, doodles), anything very tiny or very detailed. I have a good sized collection of journals, smash books, doodle books and other projects - so I love odd things to use in them. I love art of all types!

Themes I enjoy:

nature: plants & animals (especially cats, butterflies, carnivorous plants, cacti, and trees), holidays, halloween (light or dark), anything very tiny or anything very detailed. Strange "curiosity shop" or Ripley's type items are also interesting to me.

I enjoy old B horror, sci-fi, and monster movies - as well as the old horror, sci-fi, and monster comics from the 50's-80's.

ATC themes:

I collect hand-drawn/hand-painted cats, birds, halloween, holiday themed, house shaped ATCs, monsters, skulls and day of the dead. I enjoy ATCs in all media.

Inchies:

anything goes - I have 600 framed inchies in my collection and more frames to fill.

Chunky pages (4"x4"):

Cats, Mandalas, Halloween, Christmas, and Curiosity Cabinet - Oddities. I am also collecting embellished FABRIC pages for a Halloween book.

My Journals (doodle books, sketchbooks, and smash books):

collage items: ephemera, old stamps, artist stamps, stamped images, hand-drawn hand-painted snippets to glue into my books, oddities and unusual items, hand made envelopes and tags are great too.

cross-stitchers:

I am building collections of seasonal ornaments with Halloween, Christmas and Patriotic themes. I enjoy receiving patterns or stitched pieces with those themes, that can be made into ornaments.

I enjoy receiving:

all of the things listed above, as well as postcards (esp. touristy & oddball roadside attractions), postage stamps and artistamps, stencils, unusual stickers and ephemera (I use them in my journals), glass/ceramic beads, buttons, crafting supplies, little random bits for altered art & collage.

*Please do not send food or beverage items.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy all types of art & crafts, from needlework (embroidery, cross-stitch, needlepoint, crochet, art quilts, etc..) to pen & ink, painting, sculpting, collage, miniatures, papercrafts, etc... I always have a million or so projects going on at all times & wouldn't have it any other way!

I have been doing a lot of cross-stitching lately: http://chaosatlanta.blogspot.com/

I have many journals, notebooks, sketchbooks, doodle books, and junk journals in progress: http://cherylsjournals.blogspot.com/

Swapping History

I have been swapping art of all types since 2003 under the name "chaosatlanta" in several groups such as Nervousness, ATCsForAll, a few Yahoo! Groups, and a few sites that have since disbanded.

I have hosted several swaps over the years including bound chunky books, handmade postcards, and ATCs.

Flakers

Sadly I have not received a swap from @Afemshoe2

Please Note

*If you want to set up a zine swap with me ... give me a holler. I have a few zines available for trading.

Comment: I now live in northern. California, but remember when I lived in NYC and snow would fall like you described. I especially loved going to the park and seeing how beautiful trees looked with snow on them. I loved your page, with little snips of things done. I need to find those pop tarts here! Really sounds yummy.
Response: The lemon creme pie pop tarts are almost as rare as the snow. lol. Thanks so much.

So glad you enjoyed my little Halloween mini zine for the October swap on ZMACS. I'm sorry to hear about your computer woes. That is never fun! I hope all will be well soon and you will have a better day today.

Thank you for the cute bundle of mini-zines! I especially enjoyed the faux postage one (love artistamps) & it inspired me to revive a couple of my older mail art zines. Thanks! :)

Just to let you know a small surprise is on the way to you. :) Sorry that you were flaked on. :(
