SWAPPING PHILOSOPHY and PERSONAL STUFF
I rate. It completes the swapping transaction, and it's just the right thing to do. I also believe in rating fairly.
I give out hearts for the swap you send, not the extras. I'm always excited to see what you've made, or the swap you've put together. Extras are appreciated, but not required.
Please rate me for the swap I make and send, not any extras I may tuck in. Thank you. :)
My husband recently (December 2020) retired from the Air Force after 26 years. We have settled in San Antonio for now, and it's so lovely spending time with family, finally!
I'm really enjoying mixed media type art. I've started working more with paints, and inks. I love gelli printing!!!
Mostly I make ATCs, Artist Trading Coins, Inchies, Twinchies, Tags, Small Books, Matchboxes etc. Paper crafts.
I also like to join swaps for inspiration kits, or supply kits.
I love being inspired by my swap partner, I love seeing what you create, and encourage you to make what you love, use the colors you love, although I am adding a list of likes, in case of a profile specific swap.
But! I am not picky, at all.
Retro/50's 60's 70's
Halloween (not too cute, I love spooky, dark things) any time of year
Hitchcock, and Hammer Horror films
LIST OF RANDOM STUFF I LIKE-
Old buttons, hat veiling bits, rhinestones, glitter
Birds, elves, mushrooms, leaves
Green, blue, black, pink, yellow
Matchboxes, any tiny boxes, I love tiny things
FOR POSTCARD SWAPS-
Really, anything. I love ad cards, too. I'm not picky, and don't mind if they're sent in an envelope or naked.
Retro cute over kiddish cute, if that makes sense.
Haunted, dark, spooky, cemetery
Brighter colors, I grew up in the 70's, when we had hot pink, olive green, and bright turquoise ribbons, and gift wrap.
Modern or retro over Victorian style
Cute deer, nature, leaves, snow, Christmas trees
All that being said, I am seriously not picky. But I appreciate knowing what my partner likes, so, now you know what I like in particular, but I like being surprised, or awed, or inspired by your choices.
I got a turntable a couple of years ago, I love collecting records! I love Neil Young, Gram Parsons, Joy Division, Son House, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, REM, Bob Dylan, Dinosaur Jr. and on and on.
