About Me

Mom Artist Goofball Professional henna artist (I doodles on people with mud!)

Loves: the color green, cultures, art, cute things, funny things, fanciful things, silly things, animals, bugs, patterns, naughty things, weird things.

Crude humor makes me laugh but I dislike blood and gore.

(I watch Walking Dead for the story and laugh at the jokes but I strongly dislike the violence and gore.)

DISLIKES: politics, racists, violence, "in" trendy things like the words "shaby chic." Poorly done artwork labeled "abstract."

OFFENSIVE: Please do NOT send me Christian or Catholic things.

ATCS:

While I appreciate all cards I receive, I prefer hand drawn / hand painted / hand colored cards. As much as I hate to be picky and mean, sticker slapped cards will receive a poor rating.

I do not care for rubber stamped images unless they are very artistically painted / colored.

I appreciate any card where the maker has placed time and effort and happiness. :)

What you can expect from me as a swap partner: Every card I make is 100% hand drawn and painted. I try to make my cards before my swap partners are assigned so I can mail swaps out asap. If I should ever be late I will message my partner to let them know. (Hopefully that will never happen!)

I put 100% effort into all of my trades.

My goal is to make you smile when you receive your card. I tend to draw cute, happy, lighthearted subjects. (And often tastefully naughty. .. lol)

Please do not feel the need to tuck goodies into my package, I give hearts for things I love, things that are well done and things that make me smile, not extras. :)

Loves

Henna, watercolor, zentangles /dangles and doodles. atcs, crochet, nalebinding

Favorite artists

William-Adolphe Bouguereau

Yoshitaka Amano

Tony DiTerlizzi

Brian Froud

John William Waterhouse

Ambassador Promise

As an official Swap-bot Ambassador I promise to:

Mail swaps out on time, if something should pop up that prevents mail from going out, I will contact my partner and coordinator asap.

I will NEVER click "sent" before I actually mail a swap.

I will rate quickly, fairly and per Swap-bot rules.

Resolve issues quickly and in a friendly manner.

Keep the love of Swap-bot alive. :-)

Favorite things

Funny naughty things Watercolor Tea Vikings Kilts (men in kilts- yummo) Snails Turtles Ferrets Poodles Hedgehogs Squirrels Peacocks Kawaii Norway and Scandinavia

Postcard themes I love,

Anything on my like list Humor... Love love a good hilarious card Funny, naughty, silly themes Art postcards Cute Coloring Please nothing Christian. Buddha's, Krishna, Ganesha, hindu are are awesome!

a note about my handwriting

I try hard to never handwrite because my handwriting is horrendous. I am very insecure about it.

I feel like handwriting is a lost art and I am trying to improve my penmanship skills.

I also can not spell. Please forgive the boo boos, chicken scratches and dipply woos. Please know your handwritten parcel is helping me learn to write better.

I also promise to never join a penpal swap for this reason lol.

enter title...

My children:

Lilleandra: age 7 going on 15.

Aramis: age 17.

In 2015 I went to work at a Community Mental Health clinic. I teach coping skills and mindfullness to adults with mental illness. As a result, I have not had time to be the artist I am.

I hope to make time for art in 2018.

10 years on Swap bot! Whooot

Comment: Ok, let me first say your ATC made me silent for a few minutes... I couldn't stop laughing once I read the title of it because I was like is that a HOTDOG?! Seriously?! You sent me a "greasy wiener"? It looks so serious like it belongs in an art gallery, I absolutely love it and put it in the front of my 2018 ATC binder. (I made a new one every year) You made my day, thank you for taking kawaii to a different level and for the extras. I hope I get you as a partner again, lol. <3
