About Me

UPDATE April 10, 2019-I am going to take a break from decos for awhile. Postage is getting too expensive and I want to focus on other forms of art. If you want some, just PM me and I will send some your way. Thank you.

My name is Angela. I'm forty, but consider myself an older soul. I'm no longer married to a tattooed total bad ass, no children but a mom to two very cool rescue dogs. I work full time and am working on my second degree in Chemistry.

I'm a dog lover, science geek, gun owner, paper book reader, a self-proclaimed paper addict, and am an advocate of the legalization of cannabis. I love a clean home, to be clean, smell good, and get dirty. I love to love, use profanities, laugh, joke around, talk shit, act silly, and talk in different accents.

I'm not easily offended. I actually get a kick out of the nude, rude, crude, perverted, vulgar, and dark humored. I enjoy the different, bizarre, weird, and totally inappropriate.

I do not participate in any social media. This is the closest I get. No Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, or whatever else is out there. I dislike mistreatment towards animals, children, the disabled, and the elderly. I can't stand bullying, the greedy and irresponsible, negative spirits, the ungrateful, liars, bad drivers, and soul suckers.

I love your creativity!!

My last name is COFFIN, so if you have anything coffin related that you'd like to share, please feel free to do so! Thank you.

Favorite Crafts


I love to get lost in my creativity. I like to try all forms of art. I like Decos, mixed media, handmade bookmarks, vintage ephemera, weathered book pages, embellishments, paper crafts, vintage black and white photos & postcards, good quality handmade things, paper & postcards in foreign languages, stitched paper crafts, card making supplies, ATCs, and junk journals. I love to upcycle and recreate. I reuse packaging when I can and I save creative envelopes to use in my junk journal.

I am interested in altered tins, flip books, zines but have not dabbled in them yet.


I'm not fond of social media, monkeys/apes (they totally creep me out), chocolate, Disney, coffee, clowns, cute/child stickers, smell of cigarette smoke, rodents, and snakes. Please do not send me anything religious or political unless swap specific.

I pledge to rate. Not rating is almost as bad as flaking, in my opinion. If you haven't received a rating from me, chances are, I haven't received it. Also, I check my ratings to track swap receipts. If you haven't rated me, I will contact you to ensure receipt of my swap.
