About Me

Hello! I'm Darci from Norman, Oklahoma, USA. I'm 35, an artist, married, and homeschooling three kids. I have my BFA in Formation Art, focusing on fiber. Felting is my favorite art form to do, and I am currently working on a series of felted wool marionette puppets. I also love to sew and work with paper, usually combining the two. Many of the things I make are dolls, the creepier the better, in my opinion. I make fabric stuffed animals that I sell at arts festivals and shows and in a few local stores. I love to read. I am always reading or listening to a book. I love monsters, skeletons, vampires, and zombies. My favorite colors are pretty much anything that isn't pastel. I try to reuse packing materials and I have two cats and two dogs. I will do my best to keep their hair out of everything, but sometimes it just finds its way in. I will not flake, and usually send my items before the swap date. If something doesn't show up, please let me know! I really appreciate ratings. It sucks to spend time and thought making something and never even find out if it was received.
I've been busy with doll-making and shows lately so I haven't been doing as much on swap-bot, but I promise I'm still around.

Comment: Thank you so much for the art envie and all the goodies! I'd been wanting a paper doll recently, since I've been tinkering with the idea to make my own. Then I saw the one you sent (I saw the back first) and thought "oh neat!". Then I turned her around and saw her front. Whoa! Even cooler! ;-p Hehe, thank you again!

Comment: I just love the jewelry set you made for me! The dreamy combo of purples fits the mood of Midsummer so well, and the embroidered fairy charm on the necklace was completely squeal-worthy. Thank you for a beautiful creation!
Response: Thanks! I'm so happy you like it! I would have sent you a list of the stones, but by the time I mixed them all up I couldn't remember which ones they were. I'm sure they're good ones. :)
