1/24/17 Just a quick FYI ........ I've decided to slow my swaps down.

For the time being i'll still be hosting ATC A DAY & The PACk N Play Swap, i'll be doing a few jams and private swaps. If your interested in swapping pvtly let me know I am game. I am not very happy with the public swaps lately so I decline to continue to join ;(

I am very much into:

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

More about me

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


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 : )


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

More specifically :

Alice In Wonderland

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

Par Avion (Air Mail) Ephemera

Handbag Hardware new or old (clean things please) buckles,O- rings, hooks, clips, fasteners, straps, webbing, D-rings, Slider kits, pockets, trim, notions, handles, large bangles, patches, appliques, pockets, etc.

Long strips of fabric scraps in fun patterns random colors, jean strips, like 2 inch wide and longer than 2 feet, Large scrap fabric pieces bigger than 8 x 8.

ATC size cards, embossed card stock, ink pads, ink blotters, decals, anything small that I can add to trading cards and collage, paper scraps with graphics.

All sorts of hemp twine, thread made from natural fibers, waxed linen thread, etc.

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.

enter title...

(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 : )

Comment: I love texture too and there are so many forms of it. Thank you so much for the lovely ATC.
Comment: Thanks for the great collaged postcard! I enjoy myself, the most, when I am creating! We do live in an interesting place, where the land meets the sea. We drive around and count deer every day. Go down to the beaches and look for treasures and the sea animals and birds. It's not everywhere, that you look out for bears, before you walk out the door. LOL Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

Thank you very much for our private swap blue + text + sewing + adventure. I think you've really hit the nail on the head with the sailcloth-sype sewing and shapes. I really like it.

pkpeace on Feb 24, 2017:

Your gifts of caring, sharing, love and hope made my dear friend, Cindi so very happy today! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Finished jam is awesome! And WOW I love the starter set you sent. Way cool! Having a board of 140 will be fun to see all the different ways they are added to & finished. You'll have to post a picture once it's finished.
