About Me

I am usually early in mailing out trades. If you haven't received mine in a decent amount of time, please let me know. I try to make every trade a happy one for YOU! If it is late, it is definitely the mail system.

Hi! My name is Deborah, and I just turned 54 years old. I have three adult children and two grandchildren, one of which was born July 2023. We have several Marine and Army members in our family, and we are super proud of them. I have had many serious health issues including cancer, sepsis, and a time on life support. I consider family, friends, and making new friends the #1 blessing in my life. I'm a very easygoing person, and I do not sweat the small stuff. I am not easily offended. I believe in putting kindness out in the world.

Making art is therapeutic for me and it makes me very happy to share the things I create/collect and hopefully brighten someone's day. These swaps are meant to be FUN. I'm not here to read postmarks or to critique art skills.

Crafts I Enjoy: artist trading cards, collage, mixed media, gelprinting, acrylic painting classes, art journaling, beginner junk journaling, and beginner cardmaking.

Craft Items I Love to Receive:

💗Any Washi (esp black & white, glitter, or Christmas)

💗Small scraps of lace or Scraps of Colorful Sari

💗Tea or coffee stained paper

💗Music paper

💗Extra large book pages

💗Return address labels, pdt, or any fun mail stickers

💗Baker's twine in red, green, or white

💗Punchies (punched out) of any kind, I love them all!

💗flower punchies punched out any sizes

💗Tags, pockets, etc that you made, to go in my eclectic journal

💗acrylic stamps, destashed are welcome

💗Anything you think a crafting newbie needs. Im happy with anything you send.

💗Any small foreign currency would be a wonderful treat for my grandson or nephews

💗Postcards especially homemade ones. I enjoy touristy, artsy, vintage, and blank or written on. I love them all. I would be ecstatic to receive a postcard with your favorite recipe, a book/song recommendation, info about your town. If you are interested in regular, private pc swap, please message me.

LIKES: I like many themes not limited to: florals, nature, cats, vintage, boho, steampunk. I love Dina Wakley media, Tim Holtz, Echo Park. My art style is very eclectic.All flowers are loved, but poppies and daisies are favorites. I love all the colors.

Please DON'T Send List: NO planner stickers NO puffy or foam stickers(too fat for my journal). NO Harry Potter NO Dark, Gothic, or Morbid. I either have too much or I dont use in my artwork.
