I was following the pack, all swallowed in their coats/ With scarves of red tied 'round their throats/ To keep their little heads from falling in the snow, and I turned 'round and there you go/ And Michael, you would fall and turn the white snow red as strawberries in the summertime ~ White Winter Hymnal
12/15: I've been informed by a swapper that the work I create is crap. Please keep your eyes peeled for my very first 3 rating, coming very soon!
I vow to try my best to not only send on time but also rate and keep up lines of communication.
I'm not super concerned if a swap being sent to me is a day or two late. Later than that please communicate with me. I am very understanding to people who are honest. I have zero tolerance for the dishonest.
I never expect extras. Just put your heart into your art. :)
I never send anything I wouldn't like to receive.
I feel like I've tried just about every craft out there at one point or another. I can't knit or crochet, and I never quite took to sewing. Paper is my true love.
My online art journey started circa 2005 trading ATCs via yahoo groups. I've taken several long breaks, but I've never truly stopped trading since.
I love pretty much all things related to nature and science. I've been obsessed with cats my entire life. I love to make seasonal decorations with which to decorate my house. I spend most of the year waiting for Halloween. My fandoms are Harry Potter, Star Wars, Star Trek, and Disney. I watch a lot of animated movies.
I'm not actively collecting postcards anymore. That doesn't mean I won't sign up for swaps from time to time I have so many to share. I've decided to leave this list up to give people a general idea of the things I like
What I like:
*subversive & weird
*art and illustration
*book covers/ reading
*flowers and plants (especially wildflowers, violets are a favorite)
*nature and nature scenery
*animals (especially unusual animals, frogs, CATS, foxes, insects, sea life... please no dogs)
*birds (OWLS, crows/ravens, songbirds, penguins. ostrich and kiwi)
*weather (lightning,rain, rainbow,snow, etc.)
*Sci-Fi, fantasy, and horror
*vintage of any of the above topics
What I don't like:
*ads cards unless it is really cool
It pushes my creativity to work within a theme with a strict deadline
It challenges me to improve or try new techniques or crafts
I get to "meet" different people from all over the world
I get to share my art with other people
I get to see other people's art
I learn new things
I love planning and organizing
It give me a reason to look forward to the mail
It gives me a reason to use my art supplies
It gives me an excuse to buy more art supplies
Cool looking postage stamps
I do collect commemorative stamps and use the duplicates for art projects. It really makes my day when people use cool stamps to send their mail! An envelope with a plain old flag stamp on it is a lost opportunity! The next time you buy stamps go to the post office and take a look at all the beautiful choices. :)
I'm happy to receive nicely handmade postcards. I consider these to be a form of mail art separate from my postcard collection. I think it's a shame most people seem to hate handmade cards.
