About Me

My Grandson, William was born on 3/12/15. And, my second Grandson was born in August 2016. They are both joys. I understand the saying...Happiness is being a Grandparent.

I am so glad that I found this site as I love swapping here on swap-bot. My name is Angela and I live in Northern California. I love to travel. In fact, there are too many places that I want to travel to-hopefully I can do some international swaps with people from other countries. I love adding paper/newspaper/magazine articles that are in other languages to my collages and mixed media art. I also love to collect found objects and any vintage photographs to use in my art. I am a huge animal fan. I have 2 dogs, and 2 cats currently, though we seem to pet sit a lot for our friends. We have had mice, rats, fish, and other four legged animals in the past. Which all just means, you could possibly end up with a few stray hairs in your package-free of charge-of course.
I was lucky enough to meet my best friend and soul mate when I was 16. Over 25 years later, and still the person I want to hang-out with, travel with and chat with. In April 2014, we celebrated our love by getting married in Hawaii. One of my favorite places in the world.
My wife was laid off of her job after 24 years with the same company. We wanted something with a little more flexibility in schedule but still needed income coming in, so she became a driver. She is an Uber and Lyft driver, and absolutely loves it. She would be more then willing to talk to anyone considering driving for these 2 companies. Both companies offer sign on bonuses in most locals. And if you just need a referral code, here is hers.
Uber: dianad3483ue Lyft: diana261251.
I love animals, art, mail art and crafting. I enjoy painting, wood burning, collage, and mixed media projects. I also dabble in mosaics, ceramics, and anything that grabs my attention at the time. I like to try new things, and new processes for art. I also like to recycle or upcycle items. Finding new uses for old items is fun for me.

Favorite Music

I love listening to music-feeling the beat, and letting it take you away. I love tribal drums, chanting, wolf sounds and ocean sounds. And of course, radio music: Rock, Country, Pop-Top 40, Jazz. What I listen to depends on my mood at the time but my dial is usually on rock or country. I love 80's rock bands. Watching and hearing something like The Evolution of Dance on youtube just cracks me up. Here This guy is also hilarious Peter Kay

Love this video HERE-Same Love and also this thrift shop one (has swear words don't watch if you are offended by cursing) Thrift Shop Here

Favorite Books

Some of my favorite books are childrens stories. I also like to read mysteries, supernatural, crime dramas and some romance like Nora Roberts. If it can scare me or intrigue me, I'll probably like it. I also Love craft books and art magazines. Any Stampington Publication will be treasured. I do love poetry, cooking and baking (very interested in gluten free and vegan books), animals, travel, art, and coffee table books. Especially ocean related and wolves. I'm not a fan of war books, historical themes and period books. I love Stampington magazines...all of them really.

Favorite Movies

I enjoy movies and often think a great job for me would be to be a movie critic as I could watch a movie every day. I like treasure hunting stories like Tomb Raider,The Mummy, National Treasure. Other faves include Super 8, Lord of the Rings, Twilight series, Da Vinci Code, Hackers, The Net, Enemy of the State, Stigmata, Copycat, Aliens, Big Fish, Bourne Series, Timeline, Stargate, Moulin Rouge, Avatar, The Way and many many others. Including kids movies like Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc, etc. I have many favorite actors, like Matt Damon and Johnny Depp. Of course, beauties like Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio capture my attention also. Favorite actress is Sandra Bullock for sweet...Angelina Jolie for kickin butt, and Emily Blunt for everything else.

Favorite Television

I also enjoy many television shows. My favorites include: FaceOff, MasterChef, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Walking Dead, The Good Wife, Banshee, Grey's Anatomy, Sons of Anarchy, Castle, The Originals, Lost Girl, Orphan Black, Shameless, Survivor, Game of Thrones, and Project Runway.

Favorite Crafts

Some of my favorite crafts include mixed media crafts, anything with fibers, using fabric, felting. I love hand-made ornaments and hand made post cards. Making art dolls is so much fun for me. I like to try different styles and materials. Polymer Clay and Jewelry is high on my list of faves. Things that tell a story or are personal. I can't wait to try encaustic wax paintings. Upcycling/recycling items in to art is a thrill and I often pick up pieces off the ground, like rusted bottle caps and metal bits, and think wow that will make a cool......

Likes/Dislikes

I like Steampunk items, Monsters, zombies, ragdolls, horror dolls, mermaids/mermen, driftwood, sea glass, pirates, art dolls, rusty metal, assemblages, mixed media, mail art, ephemera, pottery/ceramics, handmade ornaments, fairies, elves, animals, anything ocean/nautical, asian influenced items, flowers-especially poppies and stagazer lilies, bird of paradise, and orchids, tropical stuff, decorated chopsticks, mini scissors, the ocean, lightning and thunder, lightning bugs, the smell when it rains, music and movies, laughing, holidays, food and candy, 49ers, plants & air plants, texture, fibers, scarves/hats/gloves, reusable grocery bags, jewelry, lip balms, windchimes, sea turtles and much much more.

Favorite colors include shades of blue thru green-like the ocean, rusty colors, smoky blue, golds, dusty pinks, burnt oranges, reds, metals. Actually I can't think of a color I really don't like. I do like smoky or aged colors over bright colors.

I enjoy getting newspapers/magazine articles in different languages, bottlecaps from around the globe, box-tops, maps from anywhere, ties, barbies and dolls-even broken or just the limbs, art process articles or art books/magazines, broken jewelry/watches, rusted metal will thrill me, hardware like door knobs and drawer pulls, bones and teeth, rulers and tape measures (broken is ok), any unique item, vintage anything, keys, wings, small crowns and embellishments, game pieces, beads and jewelry left overs, doll appendages and patterns, and any art and hand-made items.

For postcards, I love the weird, wacky and unusual. I like art, people, nature scenes and animals. Not in to map postcards or greetings from type postcards. For handmade postcards, please do not put tape over your postcards coming to me.

I love the stuff at Squint Limited especially some of the sofas, chairs and mirrors.

Dislikes: I'm pretty easy going and enjoy most things. However, I do not like the smell of smoke. I prefer silver to gold tone jewelry. And if I can't use something, I will gladly pass it on to someone who can.

Swapping

I do send my swaps on time and will rate you when I receive yours. Please let me know before you rate me a 1 or 3 as I send all my swaps. I also keep my postal receipts, and will gladly check on any package for you. Please rate me when you receive your item from me and feel free to PM me if there are any questions about any swap I am in or if you would like to do a private swap.
While extras can be fun, I do not rate based on them, I would much rather have a quality swap then a poor swap with many extras.
I also do give hearts on Postcards/cards and email swaps- especially when the sender takes the time to actually write something about themself or they go above what is requested in the swap in someway. This can be as easy as reading my profile and personalizing my swap, decorating the envelope, including a nice note, etc...you do not need to send extra stuff to get a heart from me. I do not give hearts based on the extras but rather on if the sender put effort in to the swap. I will also rate on the swap requirements. I'm always up for trading art, art magazines, jewelry and art supplies.
I do recycle and upcycle items. Including boxes, envelopes and packing materials. It's a small way to help keep more trash out of the landfill.

Save the Earth

I love my swaps and my groups. If you have an interest in any of them or any questions or concerns, just send me a message. As an artist, I have deadlines constantly. To help me keep track of things, I often post swaps early and it also gives you a chance to plan ahead. I look forward to swapping with you.

FLAKES

Flaking is just so rude. Listed below are recent people who have flaked in a swap that I have hosted, or on me personally.

@SMBee Mixed Media House
@aquiller Intl Kandinsky Circles and Collaboration PC
@cherrihurt Mail Art V and Mail Art U
@Alisha98119 stole my art by taking a swap I sent her, covered my name and info with paper, then she signed it, and then sent it as her own art for the same swap to her partner. And it's too early for her to be rated yet. Really low.
