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.
August 2018: so I’m a little behind on ratings, sorry! Things got a little hectic.... I’m getting caught up over the next few days and will have new swaps posted soon!
January 2018 update: Ive decided one of my resolutions is to do private swaps every month this year. Ping me if youd 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: weve 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.
Id love to do private swaps, just PM me!
Heres the kinds of themes and things that I love to see!
My favorite color is pale turquoise/aqua, 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.
Heres my favorite craft supplies to swap for:
mini vellum or glassine envelopes, mini handmade envelopes
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

My latest fave authors: John Scalzi, Diana Rowland, Mira Grant, Madeline Ashby, Jim Butcher, Terry Pratchett, Sarah Vowell, David Sedaris, Walter Mosley, Wildbow. Im slowly but happily making my way through the Parahumans series.
