About Me

I'm in my 30s, and a stay at home mom to three little girls. Crafts I love are altered matchboxes, decos, art journals, and some ATCs. I do some sewing, embroidery, crochet, knitting, and stamp carving. I have a shop on Etsy, where I sell vintage clothing.

Loves

  • Anything with fairy tales. My favorite is Little Red Riding Hood. I also love Snow White and Rose Red, Rumpelstiltskin, and The Snow Queen. I like both dark and whimsical interpretations. For classic children's books, I love Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, Heidi, and Pinocchio. Please, NO Disney or famous movie versions
  • Whimsical creatures - faeries, unicorns, gnomes, goblins, etc.
  • Mushroooms (designs pls, not the food!)
  • Mermaids, selkies, nymphs...
  • Japanese obake (ghosts/monsters)
  • Tiny trinkets, bits and bobs (charms, cabochons, beads, etc.)
  • kawaii/Japanese fabrics
  • Miniatures (for dioramas and matchbox shrines)
  • 1920s, flappers, art deco
  • Kawaii stationery (esp. food with faces, magical/ghosts/witches, unko chan, pill & tooth chan, sea paradise)
  • Anything used in Green and Sea witchery (herbs, incense, oils, dried flowers, any nature bits, moss/lichen, crystals/stones, candles, sand, shells, seaweed, sea glass, etc). I'm an Earth sign, and I grew up by the water/ocean. So I feel very connected to both elements.
  • Anything similar or inspired by my Etsy favorites (Pls only use this link, the 'favorites' in my vintage shop is strictly for business)
  • Surprises!

Other likes and interests

  • Woodland/forest - esp mushrooms, deer/fawns, moss/lichen, ferns, clover, foxes, and hedgehogs
  • The night sky, stars, moon (esp its phases), and planets
  • Matryoshka
  • Ballet
  • Items that are cute and quirky (ex. robots, mushrooms, space age/atomic)
  • Cute and creepy (ex. Gloomy Bear)
  • Pop Surrealism/Manga inspired art (ex. Junko Mizuno, Camilla d'errico etc.)
  • Anything related to British Victorian and Edwardian time periods
  • Anything dark/creepy/maccabre, skeletons, vampires, zombies, graveyards, Krampus etc.
  • Pin up girls both classic and modern (my favorite classic artist is Alberto Vargas, and Fritz Willis). I also like risque/adult images (Olivia de Berardinis) and fantasy art (Boris Vallejo, Luis Royo...)
  • My favorite color is blue (esp. light blues like robin's and duck egg) and mint green.
  • My favorite animals are cats, deer/reindeer, rabbits, and foxes
  • Winter accessories (gloves, warm socks etc.)
  • Christmas ornaments and small decorations
  • My favorite season is winter
  • Altered and filled matchboxes and shrines
  • Washi tape
  • Stickers
  • German scrap/dresden foil
  • Haberdashery (sewing notions)
  • Vintage items (ribbons/fabric scraps, anything antique, embroidered linens, millinery flowers, celluloid, anything with kitschy animals, etc.)
  • Korean brand skin care and beauty products
  • Scented candles (I prefer floral/nature scents over sweets/bakery)
  • bath bombs, bubble bars, bath salts, etc.
  • Things that are colorful, sparkly, glittery
  • Items that are nice to look at and useful
  • Ribbons
  • Illustrations/artwork postcards
  • Christmas and Yule postcards
  • Gel pens all colors and water color paints
  • Embellishments and matchbox fillers
  • Crafting items for my kids (if you send something for them, please mention which item it is in your note)
  • Tea
  • For candy swaps, I prefer chocolate over candies whose main base is sugar with additives (ex. Nerds, Sweetarts, pixie sticks etc). I'm fine with anything that includes licorice, marzipan, nuts, raisins, etc. Pls just no mint, white chocolate, or anything with gum.

Dislikes

  • cigarette smoke
  • dark and drab colors
  • key chains
  • pin back buttons/badges
  • wooden pencils
  • recipe cards
  • Items for cooking/baking (ex, toothpicks, cookie cutters, cupcake wrappers, sprinkles, etc.)
  • chipboard or scrapbooking brads
  • temporary tattoos
  • Disney, cartoon characters, famous movies, celebrities
  • Lisa Frank
  • Items from Daiso
  • Kawaii (Sanrio) purchased at Target, Walmart, Big Lots, etc. Example
  • images of cute butterflies and teddy bears
  • patriotic items
  • notebooks/journals
  • monkeys
  • piggies
  • mint, white chocolate, gum
  • jewelry
