About Me

I am a mixed media artist near Washington D.C. I share my art on my Instagram account (link above). I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I have many interests, but am here for swapping. I like to send quality items and works. I mainly join ATC, mixed media, fb/deco, penpal, and greeting card type swaps. I do enjoy journal making and penpal flip book type swaps...but only swap bulky items within the US.

Extras....

I don't rate off of the extras, so don't fell like you need to send anything other than what the swap calls for. BUT...if you like to send things, like me, I enjoy just a few things.

I like getting thin papers to collage. It can be decorative tissue paper...literally one napkin;), used stamps, papers that have black and white text, old book pages, etc. I love old grocery lists, your kids scrap paper from math or rough drafts...etc. A page of you writing on it however you want, it can be the word love over and over, or whatever.

I love homemade background papers. If you have a gelli plate, you know what to do lol. If you don't have one and don't know what I am talking about...it's really just any paper, like copy paper, somewhat thin, and you just paint, make marks, stamp images or words, then add more paint, you can stencil or whatever you want to do. Don't worry about it looking finished or nice... all these papers will be torn and glued down, then painted and drawn on by me in one of my art journals.

I enjoy washi samples too....the non slick kind with simple patterns. I like flat stickers. I love used postage stamps with buildings, animals, and people.....all stamps really. I like nice printed images, old photos, tags...ephemera for journals. Unique paper clips. Unique papers, especially in another language.

ALSO, I love mail art!! The less whitespace, the better!

LASTLY, just so you know, I am usually always generous with my rating so don't feel obligated to do any of this.

Stuff I dislike...

I would rather not get cosmetics, candies, or other non craft related things...UNLESS it is unique to your country (not US).

I don't particularly like regular ATC size decorative paper, unless it is handmade by you of course;)

MAINLY, I just like nicely put together swaps that fit the requirements...lol! I don't rate down for swaps that I think are ugly or don't agree with.

Just so you know....

If I am signed up for a swap...I have done made it and it's probably on my Instagram page....so if you don't want to see what you got till you get it, don't look at my Instagram;)

Hosting

Hello, I just wanted to be straight up with what I am about to say. I have decided to start hosting some swaps again...after years of not hosting at all. I selfishly make these swaps because this is what I want to do....soooooooo.....don't be offended when I don't change the swap for you. I honestly do not mind if no one else signs up for my swaps or if just one person does...I am not doing them for many participants, just what I think is fun. Quite honestly, I find it a bit rude to ask a host to change a swap. Now if you want to correct my grammar, or have me clarify a swap...it's fine;)

Received or Rated

If I have not rated, then I have not received the swap.

If there is ever a "postage due" when you receive a swap from me...PLEASE let me know, I will make it better. I estimate postage at home and sometimes I get it wrong. So, just let me know please.

Please rate me...I do not archive swaps until I rate, and get rated for a swap. If I have too many unrated swaps out, I am more hesitant to join new swaps. I understand mail may be slower than usual. I will send out a message to see if you received my swap and forgot to rate. I put a lot of effort into my swaps, so I don't take this lightly.

Comment: OMG Vanessa, can I give you 100 hearts?? I absolutely loved your swap!! I love the envelope where you sent it, the 2 cards full of magic and joy and love, and the paper you print was just the cherry on top of cake (I don't know If that expression is used in US :p)!! I just love it all!! Hope we can swap again in the future or maybe do a private one? Wish you a wonderful week! Lots and lots of love, Inês
Response: Yes, we use "cherry on top";) I would like to do a private swap....I am busy now...but will contact you when I have more time;) Thanks!!!
