About Me

Spoiler alert...

I sometimes post pictures of the stuff I'm swapping. So if you go to my flickr account you may see it.

And I have a small printing press built in 1893, a larger c&p platen press built in 1915, an etching press, and a kingsley hot foil stamp machine. So I like to print!

I'd rather have you spend time making something nice than sending extras. I keep all my atc's in a nice book which I share with friends.

Likes:

I like lots of things, paper is always a favorite by which I mean art paper and book or printing paper, I like the colors: purple, black, red, blue, silver, copper, green

I also like shiny things, small detailed things, birds, owls, octopi, bats. I really like well designed things, and graphic design, fashion, photography...

Cool vintage postcards are always fun! And I like getting neat stamps!

skeleton keys and old pocket watch cases..and I'm willing to purchase at a reasonable fee if you have any. I also like realistic or vintage butterflies, paper ephemera (victorian in particular) I also like birds, bats, insects, octopi, squirrels.

I love etchings and old engravings.

Dislikes:

I'm not into pastels, beige, clowns, glitter, pics of children-especially babies, scrapbooking, cheap mass produced stuff in general, religious stuff, smelly things (as I have a lot of allergies)....

Please nothing scented!

I have lots of allergies to what seems like everything, so recipes aren't generally a good bet for me.

I'd rather have you spend time on the swap than send extras!

Comment: Thanks a lot for your great card and for sharing a swap experience with me! I have to admit, I didn't even know what an altar was (I only knew the ones in churches)...

Comment: Like the way you made the postcard with text on both sides-clever. Liked the lady and pointing hands-the roach maybe not so much! All in all great job!

Comment: I like the beetle and the butterfly both (especially the grass-looking lines on the buterfly card). And I might just have to cut up that card to reuse the flowers on it... :^)

Thanks for joining Inspiration Station!

Thank you SO much for the extras! So not necessary but so appreciated. Those papers are divine! I love non-English language book pages. And the ATCs? Those are super cool. And your business ATC? So great! Thanks again. I love the postcard and the extras! You're too kind!

Was filing papers and came across the handmade children's lit PC you made me last fall and just wanted to tell you again how much I enjoyed it! Wonderful job.

I really enjoyed Ms. Kitty's visit. Thank you so much for sending her to cheer me. She made my day.

◙ I can also laser etch a line drawing into acrylic for an intaglio plate. Makes a nice line. ;D

ARTG33K74 on Mar 25, 2014:

You have a printing press and a Platen press? OH, ENVY!! 8) No one can get their hands on a Platen press in the Midwest to save their lives, they are so rare. I can laser cut any size vector graphic and font if you want to swap some interesting things. ☺ I ♥ printmaking.

I updated the rules in The Bargain Boutique and asked that everyone read and sign them. Unfortunately I don't see your name so I had to remove you. If you'd like to rejoin please let me know. Thanks!

Thanks for the bonus postcard! I haven't heard of suminagashi before... It looks similar to European marbled paper techniques, though-is it?
