About Me

If you don't receive it, I make it right, I don't flake, just check my ratings. I rate the day it arrives.

I love art, crafts, music, hiking, biking, gardening and teaching art. Love feathers, wings, anything bird.

Favorite Crafts

I do mixed-media plus teach arts & crafts. It's a mission, I provide everything. So I like swapping for your de-stash. I keep an art journal, I draw, alter items/books, I do beading, jewelry, more. Love vintage anything and steam punk, also Paris anything and Little Kitty(grands). I swoon over birds and feathers. Purse, keychain charms in my colors. Fun for purses and zippers.

FAVE COLORS: Teal, purple and jewel-tones.

RUBBER STAMPS: anything vintage or steam punk, gears, clocks, crowns, birds, owls, dragonflies, butterflies. Background/texture stamps too. No wood back stamps please. No room.

POSTCARD/ATC preferences: birds, butterflies, flowers, crowns, seed pack and animals. Also, not vintage, but vintage copies of above.

METAL CHARMS: same as above and flat charms/filigree I can glue onto my books.

Teas: Green is my fave, especially flavored ones. Fruit/Herbal is good.

Things I'd Love

I'd love to have some of your die-cuts: leaves, trees, snowmen, clocks, gears, crowns, anything steampunk or vintage, anything Tim Holtz, preferably cardstock. No machine myself.

Love,love,love small crocheted flowers.

Embellishments or stickers of flowers or anything nature.I supply everything for my classes and ladies love flowers/birds/butterflies/dragonflies.

Brass/metal stencils, used ok.

Things I Can Swap

Destash your extras in exchange for....

I have great items for collage or art journaling: foreign maps, music, brochures, stamps and product labels, business cards and other odd items all in foreign language, usually Russian, Ukrainian, Romanian, Georgian, French, Armenian, German, Italian. Also have a small amount of Arabic and Hebrew language items. All from 22 yrs living in Europe. New cross stitch and embroidery kits, floss, linen. Pretty note cards. I have a lace/trim/ribbon collection that goes back to the 60's so some of it is vintage for sure.

Often I have foreign money/coins.

Postcards from various countries and themes.

Beautiful paper napkins from Europe. Just brought some back from Germany (vintage style).

I'll trade for scrapbook stuff....your chance to clear out what you don't want. I like vintage anything, but needn't limit it to that.

Dream List

I need a banner for my Etsy shop if you know how. Would love some address labels and swap cards.

What I Don't Want

I have enough cards/stationary, thank you. No postcards, magnets. No Halloween, skulls or dark side stuff. No candy, tea or coffee and I"m over the top with note pads. Thanks, anyway. Also, no cosmetics or personal products. All of the above is with the exception of being in a swap for these.

Trouble from

Susanne Gross (FrauSusii) flaked on Reusable Bag Swap #3 Jenni Lumpkin (Pawprints) flaked on me twice. Evitake flaked on a "Stuff It Full" swap Evelyn Rozychi (eviroz), rated 3 for a swap that was evidently lost twice and even tho' I sent a third registered and she got it, she felt the need to rate down. My record of ratings speaks for itself that I am not a flaker, so be cautious if you swap with her. Christine Alejos (christine1) flaked on "Int'l Stuffed Envie."
