About Me

Wish list at the end

I am a nursing student with a two year old baby boy and two amazing teenagers.

I love all things creative. It is what keeps me sane most of the time. :)

My biggest dream in life is to publish a novel.

Swap info: My favorite colors are Pinks, Purples, Blues... cool tones. I love to art journal. I've just started collecting ATC's so I'm always happy to trade.

Nice to meet you and look forward to swapping with you!

:)

Favorite Crafts

Right now I am into art journaling, painting, writing, and anything else that gets my creative juices flowing.

I love ATC swapping, but I don't like when people swap photos or copies of their work in ATC format. I like an ATC to be original...like a little mini piece of art.

I am a pretty positive person and I love meeting new people. If you want to swap with me, or be a penpal, or any other kind of connection, please send me a note as I would love to hear from you.

hugs and art filled bliss

WISH LIST

I am on a financial diet due to my recent decision to start nursing school. We are on a very strict budget...so I welcome any and all goodies...RAOK's...I am grateful for every bit of generosity that comes my way, no matter what it is.

Here is my addy if you want to send me something:

Ilona Lagowski 15350 Amberly Dr Unit 924 Tampa, FL 33647

WISH LIST:

Any cute crafts that you may make. Whatever your creative hobby is: Kniting, sewing, soapmaking, cooking (love cookies!) Anything you put your heart into.

I love wide rulled notebooks and composition books, especially one that you have decorated.

PENS! I have a pen addiction and love to get cool funky pens from www.jetpens.com. I'm always looking for more pens! I love colored pens, brush pens, fountain pens...and well any cool pen in general. It's quite an addiction for me.

Dislikes

Swappers who do not put their hearts into swapping. These are the people who never read profiles or wish lists and send things that if they read the profile they would know I would never use.

People who sign up for mail art swaps and just plaster a sticker on an envelope, or people who write two lines on a scrap piece of paper instead of taking the time to send a proper letter.

People who do 20 swaps at once and it shows because the swap is rushed and thrown together....

Comment: OMG! Wow, you are truly a great swapper. This was the most fun box to open! I can't believe all the stuff you sent!! The 2 dotees are so awesome, they are some of my favorites ever! The tote bag is so wild and fun, and I like how you did the ATCs! What's that white swirl stuff you use that puffs up? And then you sent me tons of extra supplies... Wow! The big bag of fancy buttons is very cool! And new fuzzy socks too... I've been wanting them! You should have seen me, I was laying on my bed shrieking while I was opening everything! This is definitely one of the best packages I have gotten, especially all of the handmade stuff!! You do great work!
Response: I'm so glad you loved everything! Yay! It was my first time making dottees so I hoped you would lie them. Thanks so much for the amazing swap. :)

Comment: Wow, this was an incredibly heartfelt swap! Not many people put so much effort into a simple swap like this one! The mail art was gorgeous and made based on my profile. I don't even know what you used on that envelope to create all those shimmery bright colors and textures! Everything you put in the envelope was also perfect and based on my profile. I loved the way you did the letter in rainbow colors, beautifully written. I will be pm'ing you about setting up a private swap!

Hey girl! Just letting you know I sent your package today! I crammed as much clothing as I could fit into one of our 10 ream paper cases from OfficeMax where I work, and taped it up real good. So be on the lookout for a case of multiuse paper from Officemax! It's coming parcel post so it might be a few days...

Also whenever you get on here, join the private swap I created for this! (Password: rawr) That way we can both get ratings for sending. Don't stress about the dates, I will change them if ya want.

Hope you are enjoying time at home with the baby boy! Hope you get a little time for yourself now and then also. :)

Heya Ilona! I got your mail and I want to say THANK YOU, for the awesome mail art AND the letter (on, should I add, such rad paper!!). The Maya Angelou bird quote at the back is totally something I need to remember for life, too.

It'd be cool to swap mail art stuff, ATC's etc with you sometime. I hope everything's going well for you this week - and gets even better! Take care and write to you soon.

PS. The kawaii stationery on your website is so cute too - good work with that!
