About Me

My Grandson, William was born March 2015. And, my second Grandson, Mason 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, including old photo slides. I am a huge animal fan. My dream would be to own a ranch, with many animals. Currently, we have 2 dogs, and 3 cats, though we seem to pet sit a lot for our friends and family. 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 30 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.
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.
Right now I am loving AndraDay

Also Love this video HERE-7Trolls

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, the Bourne Series, Timeline, Stargate, Moulin Rouge, Avatar, The Way and many, many others. Including kids movies like Aladdin, Hotel Transylvania, Monsters Inc, etc. Because I like so many different types of movies, I have many favorite actors.

Favorite Television

I also enjoy many television shows. My favorites include: The Resident, Lucifer, FaceOff, Songland, MasterChef, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, The Walking Dead, Survivor, Vikings, Flea Market Flip and Project Runway/Making the cut.

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 Mail Art and Art Dolls, Monsters, Space and Science, Fairy Tales, Myths and legends, Steampunk, zombies, ragdolls, horror dolls, mermaids/mermen, driftwood, sea glass, pirates, rusty metal, assemblages, mixed media, 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, rain, rainbows, lightning bugs, the smell when it rains, music and movies, laughing, holidays, food and candy, 49ers, plants & air plants, texture, fibers, reusable grocery bags, jewelry, wind chimes, 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 and mail art, please do not put tape over your postcards or envelopes coming to me.

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. Please do not send me food or drink packets, as I will not use them. And if I can't use something you've sent, I will gladly pass it on to someone who can.

Swapping

I send my swaps on time and I will rate you when I receive yours. Please include your swap and user info in your swap, so that I can rate you. Please let me know before you rate me a 1 or 3 as I send all my swaps. I also photograph my swaps, and 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.

Reduce Recycle ReUse

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.

Comment: Super cute card! Sadly, the snowballs are very fitting for me this week. We just got 9 inches of snow and are going to get more this weekend. Wahhh!
Response: OMG! 9 inches. That's so awesome. We've been in the 90's most this month, but finally dropped down to the 80's recently. I think this is the first day our air conditioner hasn't kicked on, and you already have snow. I hope you get to enjoy it.

Comment: I love the ATC you made! It's perfect for the upcoming Holidays. Wow you can draw. This should be an Ad for the Holidays! Thank you so much, Aurora
Response: You're very welcome. And those are very kind words, but I'm not deserving of them as I didn't draw this penguin. Well I painted everything, but the image is a digital stamp that I purchased on Etsy. ;D

Comment: Thanks for the postcard Angela - she is lovely :) And, I was confused at first bc I thought it was for the Face postcard series but we aren't partnered this round. Then I realized which swap it was, so bonus - I have an extra face pc for the year's collection. I think they will become an accordion book.....
Response: You're welcome. An accordion book is a great idea! I haven't decided what I'm going to do with my collection yet. I was thinking of putting them in my art journal, or hanging them in all in a frame together, but I like the idea of an accordion book. Hmmm.

Response: You're welcome. There are actually two ATC's, I just put them in one sleeve. ;D But now I'm thinking a double sided one, would be cool. Take Care.

Comment: Adorable postcard! Thank you so much! I read a thing once where the reason we work so hard to get in to space is because we know what's under the sea....
Response: You're welcome. I would love to explore either. How amazing that would be.

Comment: Cool postcard! I am glad I have some time to mull over how to add to it. Thank you for the tattoos. I will amaze my grands when I show up to do my weekly at home schooling wearing a tattoo :-) And I haven’t figured out gifs .... I’ll look in the forum! Thank you.
Response: You're welcome. Yes, please try what I have posted for the gifs, and if it still doesn't make sense, just let me know. Also, I even use the tattoos on artwork and postcards. ;D
