About Me


** --NOTE --**

I am taking July through September off from swap bot, so I will not be signing up for anything with a due date in those months (except for some zine swaps, and ongoing collaborative swaps).

Everything is ok, I just need to focus on other things.

Ratings for any June swaps will be more sporadic over the summer months.


** -- ABOUT ME -- **

I am someone who has always had pen pals from a very young age. Receiving "happy mail" is always fun, and it is a joy to spread the cheer as well.

I love to try all different types of arts and crafts.


Mailing in the USA - ZIP+4 is important: Here is a link to properly address an item so the USPS "optical character recognition" equipment can read the address:

Swapping:

If you believe I am late with a swap, kindly reach out to me to resolve the issue.

Please also reach out to me if there is any postage due.

I mark my swap items "sent" on the date I put them in the mailbox...it may or may not match the date it is postmarked.

Reduce/Reuse/Recycle - I recycle bubble and large envelopes. I also save and re-use all the thin plastic packaging from craft supplies, often to protect my swaps.

alt text

I try to rate people within a week of receiving the swap, so please include the name of the swap (thanks in advance).

Favorite Crafts

My hobbies are "collecting art supplies", cardmaking, bookbinding, mini-books, papercrafts, collage, rubber stamping, mixed media art and fine art.

I love to swap handmade cards, zines, ATCs and mail art.

I also journal, art journal, and have pen pals. I am trying to practice with watercolors. I just bought a sewing machine and hope to incorporate sewing into my journal making, collage and cardmaking.

This year I am also new to collecting postcards, especially those with contemporary art or destinations on them.

I am sensitive to strong scents, so kindly do not send any scented items, or those that may smell of smoke. Please do not send any food or drink items.

Extras / Wish List

Although I love happy mail surprises, I am trying to get organized, so at this time I think the only extras I would really use at this time are :
