More about me

I'm a mom, a creator and I have a passion for simple living.

I LOVE Making...........

Mixed Media Art / Collage

Papercrafts / ATCs / Handmade Postcards

Scrappy Handbags/ totes/ zipper pouches / art cases / Dotee dolls and the like

Handbound journals / book covers / junk journals / smash books / altered books / and the like

Send me anything that has............

bold print, vibrant /dark colors

Anything that comes in a shade of Blue

The word HUSTLE.. lol.. collecting ATCs that feature the word!

I do my very best to send high quality usable swap items and I would appreciate that in return. I work with recycled materials (book pages, old maps, used postage, etc and i'll often send some with my swaps. My goal is to give people the chance to craft outside their comfort zone. I send all my swaps on time, if I have issues I will contact you. If you haven't received a swap, or something is off about it, please contact me and give me a chance to make it right. I will do the same for you : )


Could defiantly use some postage to add to my budget for the month : )

I would also love a mix of vintage/new materials to add to my stock for collage making, book binding and scrappy sewing

More specifically :

Quality unlined large sketchbooks/ watercolor paper

Micron Pens

POSCA pend

Any Tim Holtz products aside from paper things & distress markers

Any Dylusions products

Permanent ink pads

Foreign Language

International Goods

Flow Book For Paper Lovers

Alice In Wonderland supplies

Edgar Allen Poe supplies

Black & White ephemera

Mail art & mail themed things (labels, stickers, interesting stamps, postal cling stamps, etc)

Par Avion (Air Mail) Ephemera

Ink pads, ink blotters, decals, anything small that I can add to trading cards and collage, paper scraps with bold graphics.

Steampunk themed items, i.e stickers, charms, cutouts, background sheets. Love Tim Holtz style with a pop of color

I like abstract, collage type handmade postcards mailed naked, I also like vintage postcards and paper goods. If it's a postcard swap artsy, unique images are my style. Pretty tourist scenes as well.


Vintage images of people (I am not a fan of found relatives) they are quite creepy.

Things that are crumpled, poorly colored, dirty, smelly, gross, or immoral. No adult themes (I share my SB mail with the kiddos)

I can't be around things that are overly scented like candles, perfumes.

Cosmetics or Jewelry of any kind.

Samples unless they are craft related

I am open to vintage findings that are clean and odor free.

I make my own greeting cards and I love handmade cards. I will pass on store bought cards, if a swap calls for a note card that's fine

I have loads of clippings from magazines, and computer printed images. Please don't send any unless they relate to themes that I posted above.

I also have tons of everyday stickers. (open to 2D -3D stickers)

I don't need any school supply items, glitter, sequins, #2 pencils, pens, stickers, pony beads or circle buttons, or kid like craft supplies.

(Postage Due)

I do my very best to measure, weigh and stamp envelopes with the most accurate postage. With that said everyone makes the occasional mistake. If you receive a postage due envelope and want to pay the additional cast do let me know and I will promptly reimburse. It doesn't happen often, but anythings possible.
