SADLY MY DAD PASSED AWAY VERY UNEXPECTED. RIGHT NOW I DO NOT HAVE ANY SWAPS OPEN. PLEASE BE PATIENT WHEN WAITING FOR A RATING. PLEASE BE PATIENT WHEN WAITING FOR AN ANSWER TO A MESSAGE
Things I love to swap:
Clean and crisp with an envelope so I can write on them and send to penpals.
Love all sorts of subjects, but please NO specific occassions cards like Christmas, Easter, birthday, thank you, get well etc...
Some things I really like:
happy, colorful and cute designs
new, clean and crisp
State cards (USA) like state maps, state animals, state birds, state flowers etc....
Animals ( wolves, deer, squirrels, birds, all wildlife really)
Birds, esp. owls and cardinals
real vintage/real old ones that are written on and stamped/send in the older days
written/stamped and send naked in the mail (to me)
all sorts of subjects, single view, multiview, drawings, mapcards beautiful scenery etc...
NO tasteless, childish or "so-called-funny" (humorous cards are nice, though)
I have been crafting as long as I can remember ;)
I knit, crochet, cross stitch and sew a little.
As I love penpalling I also love exchanging mail art of all kind. To name a few things:
making ATC/skinnies/twinchies/chunky pages
mandala designs. I love to make them myself or colour in designs (yes, also in a coloring book ;)))
As long as one has put effort in her/his artwork I'm not picky at all! I like a lot of subjects/themes and I'm not easily offended ....which doesn't mean I like tasteless or rude things!!
For art/craft swaps that don't really have a theme (like ATCs sender's choice) I'm open to anything you think is nice........personally I like a bit of a guideline so I thought I write down some things I like so you get an idea of what to make.........this isn't a wishlist, so please feel free to send something with another theme!!
asian style (geisha, dragon, koi)
weird/funky (like Lynn Perella stamps)
fantasy (fairy, gnome, witch, dragon)
handdrawn or painted
Materials I like to get in swaps are:
journaling items/smash book items
nice stickers (no child or reward)
mandala coloringbooks or cards
I'm not too fond of ribbon (have tons) or loose glitter
As I said, I'm not picky, but please don't waste your postage on:
candy, food, drink, tea and things like that
make up or toiletteries/perfumes/soaps etc..
plushies, knick-knacks, souvenirs (other than postcards)
at the moment I have more patterned paper than I'll be able to use in my lifetime....so please no carftpaper for now.
