About Me

Hello! My name is Trisha. I live on a small produce farm in rural Indiana with my boyfriend. It keeps us busy! I love to spend my spare time making things, reading, thrifting, and swapping.

I'm also an animal lover. We have a beagle/rott mix named Tonto. He's the sweetest dog I've ever had. My mom's dog, Kewjo, a chow/Boston terrier mix, walks to the farm to visit every day. I also adopted a black cat named Cleo, who keeps the dogs in line.

I've made a lengthy interest and wish list ... not because I'm demanding or picky ... but because I think it's easier as a swapper to have lots of things to choose from that you know your partner will enjoy.

Favorite Crafts

I spend my free time making things of all sorts.... tie dyes, art journals, ATCs, wood signs, stamp carving, card making, jewelry making, sewing, papermaking, and crochet goodies just to name a few. My favorite is probably my art journals. I've been obsessed with paper since I was a small child. I also really love reusing discarded things in my work.

Favorite Music

I love all sorts of music. Florence and the Machine, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Indigo Girls, Matt Costa, Jack Johnson, State Radio, the Cranberries. I love oldies. I love belly dancing to Indian music. Currently, I've been stuck on 90s musuc.

Comment: I wish I had it in me to grow things, but plants just do not care for me messing with them. I'd like to grow several things here -- I live on a 20 acre property, so I could do something. That stamp sticker is giving me Richard Scarry vibes; I love it! And the whale rock is so fun.

You know the book "Dance of the Dissident Daughter"? I LOVE that book! I had two copies that I bought second handed. One I gave away, the second I have misplaced, just when I need to re-read it! It was signed by Sue Monk Kidd! I will find it one day. Nice to see a kindred spirit! :)
