About Me

♥ ¸¸.•¨•...Happy Swapping in 2010!•¨•.¸¸♥

Please PM me before you rate if you DID NOT receive a swap from me!! I always send out my items and then some as I am no flaker here.. I may be flaky but not a flaker! heehee Thanks!!

I have been late on one swap due to a death in the family, but other then that I have always done my swaps on time!


OK, now about me.... My name is Gena and I have been an artist for as long as I can remember...just ask my parents. In School while growing up, I took many art classes and even graduated from a 4 year vocational school for graphic and advertising design back in 1987. I had plan on having a career in graphic arts, but lets say "things change" and for the best I must say.

I am originally from Jacksonville, FL now living here in McDonough, GA, brought here due to a Military move with my hubby in 2001. Great town..not to big..not too small. I am married to my high school sweetheart for 22 years now this June '09 and have two wonderful kids that sometimes "don't get me"...LOL My Son Is the Air Force and my husband is is finally retired from the Army after 22 years being a EOD tech(bomb squad) to now go be a police officer! YIKES!! :) And my daughter is in her SR year in high school and wanting to follow her brothers foot steps and join the Airforce.

I like ANY art, however lately I have a more funky, whimsical flare and you know what, it makes me smile and I noticed it brought a smile to others that see it so this has been my inspiration..to make you smile!

I love to paint, and to craft things.

It brings me great joy to share my love of vibrant, colorful, whimsical art with others.

I also sell my art from time to time on ebay and my art can be found all over the US and in Canada and now the UK!

Currently I am working on all sorts of stuff and my own website. I sell alot of my art at craft shows and on ebay and ETSY. Sooo, if you are checking me out..I say Hello, and Look forward to swaping with you! You can check me out on Flickr to and see some of my works as well but be careful some of my swaps go up on there and I hate to ruin a suprise :)

And Please..DON'T FORGET TO RATE. I think alot of people delay in doing this and it really effects on how we swap so please don't forget. :)~

Favorite Music

Well I am a BIG 80's Music girl. LOL I really like all music except for country. Not a big fan of the twanggy country music..funny being from the south huh? Love Depeche Mode!!

Favorite Television

oh I love TV. I like to watch NCIS, Big Love, LOVE-True Blood, the secret life of a american teenager (my daughter got me onto this one),Burn Notice,Army wives (although not even close to real army wives HA),LOVE-the tudors,weeds,24, Nurse Jackie,Nip tuck, Vampire Diaries( another one my daughter got me hooked on), flash forward oh the list can go on and on. yes, I watch alot of tv thank goodness for DVR heehee

Favorite Crafts

I love making all sorts of crafts! Most the Swaps I join or create is dealing with something you have to draw. The people I have to send to I really try my best to send LoVe with my swaps so when I get a heart it is extra special to me and shows me that you really loved your item :) but if no heart no worries.. I have fun making my creations heehee

I love Halloween and Christmas crafts as these are my top sellers at shows and my friends are always asking me to make them something during this time frame which keep me busy

I am big into FOLK ART, WHIMSY, pRiMiTiVe kind of paintings that I do or the ACEO's or ATC that I make.

New to making Inchies. Oh these are addicting..still trying to figure out what to do with them though.

Love making Skinny's too!

I really have fun in all my creations and I like it when they make me smile cause then I know it will make you smile when you get it. At least I hope

If you want to see more of my art and what I am about please feel free to look at my website..

I really look forward to swapping on here cause I love to share with other artist!

what I like/could use?

OK, I guess I need to list some things that I like to help with some of the swaps I do. (heehee)

Well I love anything whimiscal as they are generally colorful. I am always doing ACEO/ATC so anything to help with those is great i.e stickers, or cards, cutouts, vintage clip art, even blank ACEO cards, Blank Inchies as I am new to this art format.

I love animals so anything with kitties or puppies.

I have a red and white husky and a gray hybrid malumute that are my babies. I also have 2 kitties and a cockatoo name Nitro-cause he is destructive..LOL

I like collage art of all kinds.

like vampire but not twilight-more like the mean type :)

I do scrapbook, although lately I have been crafting and my scrapbooking is on hold but I need to make one as a gift for a dear old friend to suprise her. It will be of her visits so any stickers about friendship, vacation, travel could be used :)

I use all sorts of mediums.. acrylics, colored pencils, markers, ink paint pens...can not have enough of those around!

I love cat and dog buttons and cloth cut outs with animals on them!

I am a big primitive ornie maker so I use alot of muslin and cheese cloth. Any type of plain white material will do really. And stuffing!

LOVE anything Halloween or Christmas- Holiday stickers

vintage cut outs that I can use making ACEO/ATCs

cards handmade or not :)

I like angels and fairys

I like buttons that are shaped like something..not the plain round ones.

I like ribbon... that is checked..like red and white or black and white..as long as it is checked..I know sounds crazy heehee

I am pretty easy to please really. I like everything and try to make use of everything in some type of craft project. :)~~

I make candles in the fall so wax, or wax embeds, wicks etc. are nice

Love making wax tarts!

fragrance oils

I like all colors..Don't really have one fav. color. As an artist it is hard to pick just one as they all can be made into pretty items!

I am a huge GATORS fan! Love GATORS football!! so maybe that should be my fav. colors Orange and blue..LOL

I DO NOT like kawaii items (sorry) I love whimsical but not hello kitty or kawaii.

Candy... I like all really so what I do not like is those gummy kind eeewwwwww.

gosh..I will have to update this as I think of more goodies that I could use/like. But for now hope this helps. PM me if you have any questions :)


I have noticed that many people seem to not even rate. Please, if you get something from me DON'T FORGET TO RATE ME PLEASE as this helps everyone know what type of swapper I am heehee Thank you Soooooo Much!!!


On SWAPS THAT I HOST, If your partner does not send something please PM me so I can angel you and then I will be sure to ban that flaker from future swaps I host and make sure that you rate them accordingly by all means. THANKS!

Things I'd love to trade:

ATC's, surprises, inchies, altered things, craft supplies, postcards, vintage images. Like to join in a couple of sewing ones but I only sew Halloween and Christmas ornies.

I'm trying to limit my swapping to art related items; not items that I'd have to go out and shop for.

If you'd like to do a private trade for anything I make, just send me a pm. I'm open to private swaps.

Awwwwwww thanks so much! Blush Your profile was the first one I read to get a better idea of the kind of information to include in writing my own!

Hi Jenna!

This is petite bulldog. Thanks for leaving a comment. I wish I had more to put on my profile about what "likes" I have but I'm a pretty easy going person. I like most about anything! Especially when there is thought put into the project so I'm sure I will appreciate pretty much anything someone sends me. I'm crafty and I am always looking for new ideas or to see how people put together their own projects. I like to dissect things and see how they were put together. I'm the person wandering the craft store for hours looking at everything! I'm a newbie and love this site so far. I can't wait to get my stuff in the mail.
