My Etsy Favorites
Hi! My name is Leah and I'm a crafty gal from Maryland. I love to DIY and tinker with things and I'm generally a big ol' nerd. I love to read, craft, and spend time with my spouse, young daughter, and my punk-ass cat.
January 2018 update: I’ve decided one of my resolutions is to do private swaps every month this year. Ping me if you’d like to do a swap!
December 2017 update: I just received a packet of Christmas papers and washi with no note or username included. Return address has no name but is from Oregon. If this is from you - hey thanks! Please PM me with identifying details so I can give credit where it is due.
August 2017 update: we've relocated to the East coast after years of living in the Bay Area. I'm getting back into swapping after things were packed up for too long. I'm looking forward to more swaps with you!
I like sewing, polymer clay, jewelry-making, and I dabble a bit in collage and shrink plastic. Mostly I recraft new jewelry from vintage components. But I'm a huge craft dabbler, so I love that these swaps let me experiment with different kinds of crafts -- paper-based, collage and assemblage, embroidery, etc. etc. I've recently started making zombie art dolls out of Barbies.
I'd love to do private swaps, just PM me!
Here's the kinds of themes and things that I love to see!
My favorite color is pale turquoise, and I also love dark red, orange, dark turquoise, and black. Generally I love just about any color, neons are great, gothic colors are great too, etc.
Here’s my favorite craft supplies to swap for:
matte glitter, any color
jewelry - vintage jewelry, Southwestern, punk, sculptural, rhinestone animal pins, Christmas pins and earrings, etc...
Ink pads (gently used is fine), any color but black
vintage fabric especially 60s/70s, or Japanese
altered art and art dolls
personalized address labels and swap tags
jewelry supplies, especially chains and beads
lace washi, mermaid or unicorn washi, washi with my favorite animals
the sticky sheets you can use to mount stamps (forgot what they are called...not the static cling sheets but the stuff that sticks to those sheets)
Game of Thrones, Westworld, The Walking Dead, Ash vs The Evil Dead, Jessica Jones, early Battlestar Galactica...
My latest fave authors: John Scalzi, Diana Rowland, Mira Grant, Madeline Ashby, Jim Butcher, Terry Pratchett, Sarah Vowell, David Sedaris, Walter Mosley.
