About Me

Quick note: Please do not send any perfumed or strongly scented items, including stick and cone type incense. I've recently begin getting headaches from these items. Herbs, flowers and other natural scents are fine. Thank you!!

I like sewing, painting and crafting in general. I love to travel and experiencing new places, foods, cultures and people.

My other hobbies include hiking, camping, volunteering at a local Shakespearean theatre, cooking, and spending time with my family, friends and my pets.

My favorite colors are green and black, but love all colors except neon.

I love fashion, shoes, makeup and nail polish. I also love the outdoors, nature, and animals too. I have worked in primatology and veterinary medicine.

Only pagan religious items please.

Favorite Crafts

Sewing, painting (acrylics), jewelry making, some scrapbooking/smashbooking, found object art. I'm not sure if it's considered a craft, per se, but I love collecting found nature items. Rocks, feathers, moss, bits of sticks, leaves, shells, anything that captures my eye. If you see something you want to include for a swap for me, I would love that!

Favorite Books

Jane Austen is my favorite author, but I also like reading paranormal fantasy, mysteries, and non fiction books on travel, science and zoology. Some of my other favorite authors include A. Lee Martinez, Charles Dickens, MC Beaton, Elly Griffiths, and Shakespeare.

New Craft

I have recently started a doll house in a witch in the woods theme. I am new to this so learning as I go along.


I have recently become a vegetarian (been coming for a long time), so please do not send any food with eggs or meat. I also do not drink alcohol due to several medical conditions and the medications I take to treat them.


I prefer handmade or natural items over store bought items. Vintage, Bohemian, Irish, Scottish, British and Celtic Items, Foreign language items, Beads and Charms, Rubber stamps, Fairy/Goddess , Art Nouveau (Mucha & Toulouse-Lautrec), Art Deco, Anthropology/Charles Darwin, Primatology (Gorillas are my favorite, but love all primates); Animals but specifically crows/raven, bats, cats, dogs, sharks, snakes, spiders and hedgehogs: (prefer more realistic depictions opposed to cartoonish) Winnie the Pooh (EH Shepard, not so much Disney) Sugar skulls and things slightly creepy :), Nature items Found objects and art made from them Personal style in art and decorative items is eclectic


Country, Anything too bright, garish or cartoonish, Americana, Anime, Religious items (besides pagan), Anything too cutesy or Holly Hobby/Mary Englebright


Goddess: The Morrighan mostly, but also Hekate, Diana, Brigid, Gaia, and Emer God: I work exclusively with the Horned God. Most specifically Cernnunos, but also Herne, The Green Man (Oak King/Holly King), and Pan. I work a lot with The Fey and Elements/Elementals and the pentacle and triple spiral symbols. I like all herbs and essential oils, but tend to steer away from Patchouli. It evokes memories of dirty hippies. ;) I work a lot with herbs, my favorites being oak moss, mugwort, and lavender. The animals I work with include the doe, crows/ravens/magpies/red-winged blackbird, and dragons. I resonate most with the Celtic mythology.


If I receive your swap, I will always rate you. So if you think you should have received a rating by me, please send me a message and make sure I did, in fact, get your package. I also always send my swaps. I will message you if I don't hear anything, but usually try to wait about 2 weeks before I will message on Swapbot first, then your email if I haven't heard back. Please let me know if you didn't get it and I have no issues resending. I really do put effort and energy into all the things I make for someone, so I want to make sure you receive it :)

Comment: Thank you for the ladanki. That is some lovely embroidery work that you did; I find it hard to work on such small canvas! I also enjoyed your note, the pretty magnet and that amazing mushrooms card. Even like the stamps! Thanks!

Comment: As per the swap description, they were supposed to be mailed separately even if you were assigned the same partners in the other swaps, but you did a nice job compiling the spells with photos. Thank you for joining. -Mandi
Response: Sorry I misunderstood. I thought just was supposed to send different spells obviously. I missed the part about sending separately. My mistake.

Comment: This is FANTASTIC! I absolutely love it! I've put the pin on my Dragon Age Inquisition jacket (goes well with the Leliana theme if you've seen/played the game), the ornament will be hanging over the altar soon, the pen is just...wow. The oil smells great! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

Comment: Kristina, thank you so very much for the amazing swap! The clutch broke free of the tissue so I got an early gift with that one. I love it so much!! I taped the rest of the tissue back up so I'll open the smaller ones in December. Thank you again for the generous swap. You definitely made my week! P.S. I hope you had an incredible time in London!!

twobluecrows rated for April Fool Goddess LAUFEY Charm on Mar 13, 2018
Comment: What a lovely charm! I love the painted feather, and parts of the lichens are actually Usnea (the green hairy-looking bits), which is a fabulous and relatively rare bit of wild medicine--I was able to collect a large batch enough to fill a quart jar) of it from a felled tree last fall and have made it into a healing tincture. This is a special charm for me!! Thanks so much!

LOVE the mobile you made for the Dyad WTA. Brilliant concept and wonderful art work. I plan to hang it on my front porch where it is safe from the elements and yet adds so much to the energy out there. I am honored to receive such a beautiful piece. (Wrapped gift for a Hallows opening)

Thank you for the most amazing angel package for the Q&P Celtic Tree Lore Series--Oak Swap. I love the tile and charms you made, the lovely acorn charm, the fairy door necklace, everything! The extra bracelet is lovely as well. Thank you also for being an excellent and proactive host and keeping such good communication. I hope to join more of your swaps in the future. ♥ Wish I could give you a 5 and lots of hearts, but I guess a star and a note will have to do. ♥

I've been reading the book (CHAKRAS) with much appreciation having worked with them for a long while. Its fun to be re-acquainted with info as well as learning new things. I deeply appreciate what you sent, and that you selected the Crown. I discovered that mine was indeed blocked, and I have been working to clear it and get it balanced again. Thank you again.

njstauter on Apr 23, 2015:

Got your package with the Chakra book, FLYING OINTMENT, detox, and other items. You must have had fun gathering them all. Thanks for your sweet generosity. May the Law of Return bless you abundantly in kind.

njstauter on Apr 22, 2015:

My bedroom is shades of violet and the information you sent me on the Crown Chakra is healing. I have been using a diffuser with essential oils and will spend time searching for what I need to work on the Crown. I know more is coming and I deeply, deeply appreciate it!
