PLEASE contact me if you have NOT received a swap from me in a timely manner. I always send my swaps by the due date. If you have not received a swap, I will GLADLY resend. So, please contact me before rating a 1 or 3.
My favorite mail art is sending/receiving postcards, both store-bought & handmade. I enjoy sending the cards through the mail WITHOUT an envelope -- live life dangerously!!!
I love birds, real & crafted. I have a cockatiel who has been my pet for about 16 years. I love to craft with birds -- I have various rubber stamp bird images (from desert dweller - quail & roadrunner to tropical storks of various kinds). I love die cutting bird images & sewing them on postcards & ATC's.
FAVORITE Books: science fiction, mysteries.
Favorite authors: CJ Cherryh, Geo RR Martin, Dana Stabenow
Game of Thrones | NCIS | Orphan Black | Chicago Fire | Chicago PD
new passion: The Expanse
I've crafted most of my adult life; I've quilted, cross-stitched, scrapbooked (including Project Life) and now my biggest passion is for paper-crafting. I make lots of greeting cards, ATC's and post-cards. I have recently gotten a Gelli plate and am attempting to learn more about monoprinting.
I love earth tones -- browns, greys, greens, blues. I'll tolerate pink but it's NOT at the top of the favorite colors list!!! I'm NOT a fan of neons, though I'm sure my teen-aged granddaughter would love it!!!
Postage stamps, washi tape, book paper (new and/or vintage), baker's twine, unusual ephemera -- any of these items in earth tones will be MOST welcome.
I'm a dietitian by training and a public health nutritionist by employment (at present). I LOVE food and LOVE receiving food packaging/magazine advertisements from overseas. Some of my favorites that I've gotten in swaps are just food ads torn out of British & Aussie magazines; the packaging from food products in So. America & UAE. Sounds silly, but one of my favorite pen holders is the peanut butter container that I purchased in Canada > 20 years ago. Skippy is ubiquitous but it's cooler from Canada. :)
If you're reading my profile and are going to be RECEIVING from me, please let me know if there's something in particular that you're in need of. I've sent LOTS of deli paper overseas (South America, Australia and UK) to swappers who don't have the access to crafting supplies that we do in the US. I'm a Christian who believes in karma & the Golden Rule.
