About Me

Lindsay β€’ she/her

Hi! I just LOVE creating heartfelt art to share with others to brighten their day. I also love checking my mailbox for happy mail and seeing what beautiful things my swapping friends have created. 🎨 πŸ’•

I’m open-minded and accepting; and I love handmade art! Always feel free to try a new technique or try something new on a swap for me. I love to see what you come up with and how you made it happen. I’d love to hear a little about what you made/sent… I really like hearing from you. 😊

I will always angel any swap I host.

I am open to private art swaps! Send me a message if you’re interested.

I'm mom to 2 boys, a wife, a gardener and an artist. We have a dog and a cat. I love history and fairy tales. I enjoy genealogy. I love rocks and crystals. I’m into native plants, and herbalism. I love nature. A weekend in the woods is a perfect weekend to me!

πŸ–Ό I maintain a "little art gallery" in our front yard. It is always open for sharing and swapping art locally. If you'd like to send something for the gallery, I'd love to select something to send back to you! Follow @littleArtgalleryolivette on facebook for updates.

Favorite Crafts

I just love creating things... from sewing to papercrafting to painting to leather and woodwork to to embroidery and everything in between (including polymer clay)! I’ll try any craft at least once. I just LOVE making things!

Most recently, I’ve learned how to bind a leather book, and I’ve been sewing hexagons together (English Paper Piecing) to make small toys and a quilt top. I’m also in the middle of sewing my 1st (non-historically accurate) historical garment... a dirndl dress, along with a blouse and apron. I’ve also been cranking out lots of ATCs lately!

Happy Mail

I love sending and receiving happy mail! (Who doesn’t?!)

Some things I’d be thrilled to receive:

  • anything handmade (even if the swap requires a "bought" card, I always prefer handmade and will not rate down)

  • colorful, decorated envies and packaging

  • collaborative art (decos, postcards, ATCs, etc); I really enjoy seeing what others do, and adding my own touch. I’m always happy to send them along. Homers are okay with me (because then I get to see the finished product before sending it home)!

  • zines

  • "fancy" tissue paper samples

  • ATCs

  • gel prints or mono prints

  • tiny artwork

  • a secret, a hope or a dream (I'll keep it between us!)

  • your art

  • interesting items from where you live

  • tea (especially caffeine-free or herbal)

  • a letter from you

  • a story or essay or poem

  • favorite family recipe

  • soy-free, dairy-free vegetarian recipe

  • handmade or interesting paper samples

  • your best parenting or marriage tip

  • vintage stamps or stamps from other countries (I’m in the USA)

Themes of Interest

I am grateful to receive any art that you wish to send me! I especially love hand-drawn and -painted art.

Comment: I love your style and your art is so cute! You chose some of the same words as I did like sidewalk, berries and haircut. The stories were perfect! Something funny that happened last night. I was reading your zine pretty late last night and my daughter and I were sitting on the couch quiet. As I got to the part about the snake... at that exact moment I felt a vibration and movement under my foot (which was propped up on a pillow) and it scared me to death. Because I was thinking about the snake. Anyway... it was her cell phone. Oh man... as if a snake would even be able to get into our house.
Comment: Putting this on the wall in my workshop. I’m planning to make custom Pride patches out of fabric scraps, and this is a perfect reference!
