About Me

Hi there!

I'm a web designer and digital marketer by day, who reroutes my creativity to small art and mixed media pieces after hours.

I've long been a mixed media maker, and before the pandemic I organized artist markets for local makers.

I've turned my focus from bigger pieces to small art because I love happy mail and small art swaps.

There's nothing better than getting something colorful and creative in the mail. I love creating and sending as much as I love receiving!

Things I love: 1. Music, especially indie rock and pop, punk, punk pop and metal 2. Colors, especially yellow ochre, olive green, Prussian blue, Paynes gray, crimson, scarlet, vermillion and magenta 3. Layers & Grunge 4. Painted papers, collage fodder and gel prints 5. ATCs (cards and coins)

Things I don't love so much: 1. Loose glitter

While I am new to swap-bot, I am not new to happy mail and art swaps. I take part in several Facebook swap groups and actually run one of my own. I'm a stickler for meeting deadlines and following swap guidelines.

Favorite Music

Frightened Rabbit, R.E.M., The National, Bloc Party, The Decemberists, Kate Nash, Kate Rusby, Wintersleep, Brian Fallon, Grimes, Augustines, and many more!

Favorite Books

More my favorite authors!

Patricia Briggs, Meghan Ciana Doidge, Hailey Edwards, Piers Anthony, Kim Harrison, Anne Bishop, Kristan Higgins, Mariana Zapata, Miranda Dickinson, Liane Moriarty, Kalayna Price

Random Facts

  1. I'll be 50 in June (2021)

  2. I have seven tattoos, and plan to get another one for that 50th birthday (pandemic permitting)

  3. I've run my own marketing and design company since 1998

  4. I'm married, no kids, three pets (special needs and high maintenance)

Please do NOT send ...

  1. Tea Samples
  2. Candy or other edibles
  3. ANYTHING with LOOSE GLITTER!!!

Comment: Thank you for all the wonderful goodies in this envelope - I can't wait to use all of these in my snailmail and journal! Do you know the brand of the stickers you used on the envelope? They are little gothic-like rabbits, maybe?
Response: They came from Stickii Club. I get packs monthly. I'll look and see if I can find the artist!

Comment: These ATC are amazing. Thank you! I even hated to open the envie because it was beautiful also.
Response: I'm so glad you liked them. Thanks so much. I love decorating the envelopes, too, but sometimes I worry that the more fancy the envelope, the less likely it is to arrive.

Comment: I really like your ATCs, and I also really like that you don't use plastic sleeves! I've never thought of an alternative for them, but your tea-bag idea is awesome. Also, thank you for the extras (gelli print and painted paper) - these are the kind of extras I love - I little glimpse into someone's creativity :)
Response: I'm so glad they arrived safely and also happy you liked the tea bag. They're fun to use in your art journals or other creations as a cute little pocket! And I'm thrilled you enjoyed and can use the extra goodies!

20121 profile hello.

i also dislike loose glitter. it is so messy. i to am thinking of getting my fur daughter daisy's paw print as a tat (pandemic permitting) perhaps darkening my sons name also. its 11 years old and faded.

2021 Profile Hello - SurfinNan
G;day Mallie it is great to be able to connect with you. What a happy name you have. I had given up even looking in my letterox sooner than once a fortnight as I was not receiving much. Most correspondence is via email now. Then I requested samples and in my search came across Swap-bot. What a great idea/! I have only participated in one postcard swap (not received as yet) so far but am looking forward to doing more. I have not heard of the music, nor the authors you mention, I'll have to look them up to see or ask one of my daughters (I have 3 and 2 sons). You are a chicken compared to me. I am 66 this August. I have no tattoos but 2 daughters have them and piercings. Too much pain for my liking. I also am Nan to four, the eldest is 21 years and the youngest 8. Cheers to you and hope all is well on your sde of the world. Evelyn

2021 Prolife Hello

Heya! I enjoyed reading your pf. I can already tell your gonna be a great swapper, I'm happy you joined Swapbot :) I don't meet a lot of people with the punk aesthetic on here, it's super refreshing. What kind of tattoos do you have, what do you think your 8th one is gonna be? I really wanna get one sometime, I've got ideas but I don't have my heart set on an exact design yet. Love your taste in colors and your hard working attitude!
