About Me

I have only been on Swap-bot for 6 months or so and have seen some really creative things and had a great time sharing with everyone. I have found that sending out a little piece of yourself can be a difficult process and always love to see what someone else finds interesting about it. Please let me know in your rating I do very much appreciate it.

I am a mom of a teenager and have been married for 28 years. I like to travel and be in nature. I collect a number of natural things including scavenged skulls rocks and feathers. I am a pastry chef as a profession. I dabble in a few different crafts but probably come back to collage mostly. I don't particularly like cutesy or romantic but everything has its place and can be used in some way or fashion. I love paper of all sorts and making books. I like most colors and black and white artwork. I like anything you put your time and effort into it ultimately may not be my aesthetic . When you put your creativity to work it makes all the difference.

Please message me if a swap you are waiting for has not arrived! The postal service is doing their best, but I'm still seeing quite a few delays and undelivered mail. I am happy to send out new stuff/replacements ASAP, as long as you let me know

Response: I just want to thank you for allowing me a little creative freedom in making this ATC. And thank you for the pics as well. I was super excited to get it in the mail. The fact it made your display board makes all the work worthwhile. Thank you. Happy Swapping and hope to inspire more 3D pieces from everyone.

Comment: Thank you for the awesome card! I love how you did the moving wings. And thanks for the awesome extras!
Response: Much appreciated. The wings were one of my favorite parts. I almost had to make them again they weren't lining up then it just worked out. Glad it got to you and you liked it. Thank you for the rating and the ❤️.

Comment: My BEAUTIFUL metal wings arrived today Thank you so much! They are awesome. I'm not sure what I'll make with them but I'm thinking they really don't need much...a cool clay face and that will look great. But I might want to make more of an assemblage on a wooden stand...or something. I'm excited!!! xo
Response: I had so much fun looking through your Etsy wishlist and put a few things and a couple of shops to follow on my page as well. Glad you liked the wings there was a brass pin as well right? Just want to be sure they sent everything. Thank you. For the ❤️and rating. Happy Swapping.

Comment: What an odd little ATC. Me and the boys enjoyed covering the faces and uncovering them. Thank you for all the extra goodies too!
Response: I got that particular photo in with a number of others and instantly knew it needed to be an ATC. Then this weird and creepy swap came and well. Father Knows Best.!! There were a few other titles but they went a bit too far so this one is what I decided on. Happy Swapping.

Comment: I love how this turned out! It's funny, because I just spent hours trying to figure out how to move something for my ATC, so I know exactly what you mean. They can be a challenge. But this is truly lovely, and I like how it works. I wouldn't have thought it was a second (or 3rd or 4th if you're like me) choice. I'm very happy I get to add this to my collection. Thank you!! (And thank you for the extras, too. They will definitely be put to good use.)
Response: Thank you. And yes I fretted over this one I was trying to figure out how to use the pulls so they were a bit more invisible but kept tearing it up. I know there is one I have in my head I'm trying to work out and it's going to be harder we will see how many attempts it with take. I appreciate the heart and rating. Thank you. Happy Swapping

Comment: Thanks for joining my swap. I love the lizard ATC you drew. It came out really great! I am so happy to add this to my collection. Happy Swapping!!
Response: Thank you. Unlike all of the watercolor tutorials I have seen I can't sketch so I kind of just put the colors down and add the details. I think it's working for me. Just not the way "they" say it's supposed to be done. Glad the iguana found a good home. Happy Swapping.

Comment: Thank you so much I absolutely love!
Response: I'm glad that you liked them it was a hard choice for me to make. I didn't see very many spooky things in your profile so didn't know how far to push it. I stayed a little safe. But really like the small businesses that I found. Happy Swapping

Comment: What a beautiful ATC! It arrived this morning and I immediately rushed in to show it to my partner. It's stunning and I'm grateful to you for making it for me -- thanks so much.
Response: Thank you. I really enjoy taking pictures of flowers when we travel. I think this one was a trip to Buchart Gardens in Victoria BC. Great place to visit if you are in Canada.
