About Me

Hello! My name is Nickalli Braaten. I'm an artist/crafter in Tucson, AZ. I'm an original beta member, so my user name is generic. I'm married to my best friend, we did 22+ years in the Air Force, he still works for the 55th Rescue Squadron but as a civilian now. Our son just started high school, so we'll be here a few more years trying to deal with the heat!

original member

My loves are art journals, planners & bullet journals, handmade rubber stamps, mail art, bookmaking, embroidery, polyclay, beads, jewelry, altered art and books, most anything to do with mixed media.

Favorite Music

I'll listen to most everything except for Rap. Country and opera need to be in context. My current playlist includes Enya, Meatloaf, Neil Diamond, Robbie Williams, ZZ Top, Imagine Dragons, American Authors, Adele, Melissa Etheridge....

Favorite Movies

Amelie I can watch over and over, Pulp Fiction as well. Anything with John Cusack also makes me happy. I love old movies (Cary Grant, Dorris Day) and most chick-flick type sappy ones. Not a fan of the new horror flicks.

Favorite Television

I'm a reality show junky - I love Survivor, Amazing Race, Big Brother. This is Us is a new favorite and Walking Dead I watch with my kid, Steelers Football is practically a religious experience. Been trying out a few new shows with my hubby (Ozarks, Defenders). I miss Friends and Seinfeld.

Favorite Crafts

Mail Art!!! Carving my own rubber stamps. Working with my gelli plate. ATCs. Altered Rolos. Watercolor classes online. Making something funky to wear (jewelry, not clothes!) Just started a Happy planner and bullet journaling and love it!!

Favorite things

Happy planner supplies, stickers, etc. * Hand made art! Collages, postcards, ATCs, etc. * I like my postcards naked! :0) * Bumble Bees 🐝 Ephemera * Journals, Pens * Anything with cool letters/writing on it * Interesting pattern papers * Art supplies! * Old pictures, film strips, slides * Buttons * Beads, glass not plastic * Old book pages, especially foreign * Illustrations of any sort * Bullet Journal supplies

things to swap ~ planner supplies, handmade paper crafts, jewelry, Mail Art, ephemera, handmade Note Cards, handmade Envelopes, washi tape, napkins, stamped images, stuff to stick in my journal, ATCs ~ Anything Really

Swappers who really care and it shows they weren't just trying to hit the minimum requirement needed! You are loved!

Colors ~ jewel tones. Love purple and blue. Pink and orange is starting to grow on me a bit more.

things I do not like:

I'm pretty easy going and impossible to offend, so if you've gotten something you just don't know what to do with it - send it to me. I like the funky, unusual, offensive type stuff.

Receiving something that had no thought put into it, when you can tell the person just wanted to check off another swap and did the minimum needed.

No communication! If you are going to be late - just let me know! I'm pretty easy going :0) Also, if you didn't receive something from me - contact me and let me know before rating! I've never flaked and never will!

I Pledge to Rate

Special Thanks!

To @barbieloufromKY for angeling on her swap: USAPC: List Pad Sheets #1

Comment: How I love this image. I glue PCs and NC fronts into my health journal & write in it every day. The story you shared is sweet. I hope you are feeling better and know how it feels to be away from home when I am not feeling my best. Be well.

Comment: If I could rate you more than a 5 and a heart, I most certainly would! The two stamps (and, you said, other attempts...??) (above and beyond!) that you carved are amazing and I adore the multiple and varied images that you sent me. I hope hope hope that you like the stamps because I know that I will be using and highlighting the images for a while to come! Thank you so much for a wonderful and fun swap!

Comment: Well Hello again Nickalli :-) Your dog and dog-bone stamps ARE cute! Totally non-wolfish too. I'm no sketcher either; I'm a "draftsman" not a spontaneous sketcher, which is why I use clip art from Google Images as a source for most animal stamps I make. However, I usually More admire stamps carved with or without a drawing made by the stamp artist herself than ones made like I do by using a clip art image . . . . . Congratulations of your new puppy! Shih Tsu's are so cute!

I received your email and wanted to say you made some very valid points. I apologize that I did not investigate things further. I did not even think to look at the "uncategorized" swaps. I hope you will be a part of one of my future swaps, and I will ~ from this point on ~ be sure to look at uncategorized swaps when preparing to assign swap partners. Lesson learned. Thank you.
