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.
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 colors are pale turquoise, orange, dark red, and black. Generally I love just about any color except for sage green and peach, don't ask me why!
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
washi with a grid pattern (like graph paper), or lace washi
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)
adhesives because mine always dry out (what am I doing wrong??)
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.
