About Me

*** I rate the same day or the very next day after I receive a swap. If I have not rated you, I did not receive it. Send me a PM and we can discuss it.

***I mark as sent as soon as I package a swap and put it in my mailbox. This may mean the postmark is the next day or two depending on my mailperson's timing.

Long time crafter. I run a meetup group and have crafting events several times a month. I do a lot of different crafts, from various paper crafts (card making, quilling, mixed media) to polymer clay, painting, to abstract line drawing in ink, to crochet. Probably paper crafting is some of my favorite. Along with altered items such as altoid tins, assemblage items, and shadowboxes using recycled and found objects.

Interested in personal swaps for crafted items?

Things I can make for you: quilled items, note cards, junk journals, ATCs, crocheted items. and paper crafts of all kinds, polymer clay miniatures Things I'd like to receive: - tote bags/grocery bags, (I love bags of all sorts) - zippered pouches - receipt wallets - paperless paper towels or napkins - ATCs, inchies, twinchies, other mixed-media art - any paper craft - cotton dishcloths.


I have cats and love animals (HUGE spider phobia though). I love coffee and tea and cooking. I love the Discworld series, I like retold fairy tales (Mercedes Lackey, Robin McKinley) I am a huge sci-fi / fantasy person.
shows I like: stargate, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Star Trek I play lots of strategy board games and am an on-again/off-again World of Warcraft player. I run a craft group, a sci-fi book club, and a board gaming group.

Things and themes I like:

  • I am collecting Herb themed ATCs for a collage for my kitchen. I would love some more to help fill it up.
  • flowers, butterflies, animals (esp cats and peacocks), nature in general
  • cheerful colors
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • fairies and Fairy tales ( esp Sleeping Beauty
  • steam punk
  • vintage / shabby chic
  • ancient history
  • sci-fi/fantasy (esp Doctor Who)
  • coffee/tea/wine
  • I'm open to others but those are definite likes

Things and themes I would not want to receive

  • anything spider related
  • anything religious or holiday related
  • scented items

Supplies I like:

  • buttons
  • ribbons/washi tape
  • book pages
  • anything I can use in the making of assemblage / altered art / ATCs
  • I would appreciate any bird or butterfly pictures, die cuts, or stamped images
  • Lately I have been into making postage stamp people ATCs so any used postage stamps with faces would be great
  • old keys

Things I would like either store bought or homemade

(I love homemade stuff - even if it's not perfect, if you tried, then I will love it!) I am open to receiving all types of items but I especially like bags of all types and organizer type things.
- small notecards with envelopes - gift tags - envelopes - paper embellishments - interesting shaped paperclips - tote bags - rubber stamps - notepads

Colors I like:

blues, reds (esp deep/dark reds, earth tones, purples, black, grays

Food items

  • I enjoy tea. I like black, white, green, rose teas. I love mint teas and love ginger and ginger/lemon teas. Most herbal teas are fine. I drink regular and decaf teas. I don't usually care for fruity teas (orange, peach, berry, etc).

  • candy - no coconut or licorice and nothing that would melt between the months of April to October

Comment: Hi Carlee, love love your inkbox card. I haven't made one yet, but the size is so perfect. What kind of paper did you use? I just returned from a 2 wk vacation and only got back last night so I am really sorry for the late response. I just bought some small Gelli plates in the US when I was there, so I am excited to try it. I really like your gelli images too. Thx for sharing. Tama x
Comment: Hi Carlee, Thanks so much for the pretty map ATC. I really like how the map element is peeking out from the artwork and images. Happy 2024!
