About me

something stuff nightowl


Hello swap-bot friends! I have been an artist for many years and am recently getting into papercrafting as well.

I mainly draw and paint in children's book/kawaii/doodle style.

I live in the snowy Northeast with my husband and daughter. I love to play board and card games as well as arts and crafts of all sorts.

I am looking forward to have something fun in my mail, instead of the usual bills and junk.

*********************** If there is any problem with what I sent, please tell me before giving me a bad rating and give me a chance to make it right - thank you!

Favorite Books

I love to read non-fiction and self-improvement books. I love Seth Godin and TED talks, not really books but in the same realm. Fiction wise I prefer fantasy and hugely dislike sci-fi.

Favorite Television

I love old british sitcoms!! Are you being served, Keeping up Appearances and As Time Goes By are among by favorites. I love old American TV shows as well, Golden Girls, Newhart, MAS*H...

Favorite Crafts

Oh my god!! Where to start...I'm a multi-crafter. I have tried a lot of things and wish I had more time to do it all. Sewing, crochet, painting, zentangle, card-making, ATCs, greeting cards...I love it all!

Crochet: I am an always-beginner, I hate counting chains so I do granny squares and amigurumi or similar small projects.

Painting: I am an illustrator, I do illustrations in kawaii or childrens-book style. I love motifs, doodles and clean lines.

Sewing: I love hand embroidery and am learning chicken-scratch embroidery. I have done cross-stitch in the past.


My favorite colors right now are golden yellow and red. I love anything in the Mary Engelbriet style.
