About Me

Note: please do not post fast flashing images (slow ok). My brain cannot process them. Thanks.

I ALWAYS rate. if you are missing a rating from me is because I did not receive anything. NOTE: I am living in two places at the moment, and I am on the road a lot, please be patient; sometimes it takes a week before I can sit down to rate. But I promise I always will. If you have sent something, and it has been more than 3 or 4 weeks, is probably lost... Also, I have found that different people interpret art differently, if for any reason you have issues in a swap, please contact me before rating, and I will do my best to make it right!

Love to meet new fellow artists and crafters! I like to paint on everything: canvas, wood, walls, shoes, clothing, furniture … if there is a surface, I will probably work on it.

What I really like the most are:

Science fiction cards,

Space Force


Space X

the Cosmos in general, specially the Sun,

Atlantis myth and the ocean,

Mermaids & Sea Horses

vintage Disney,

vintage Looney Tunes or anything Hanna Barbera ( Bugs, Sylvester, Duffy, taz, Flintstones, etc)

Inspector Clouseau and The Pink Panther 1960s cartoon

Fat old feisty ladies

Fairy tales classics. Specially Cinderella & Sleeping Beauty.

Christian crosses and depictions of the Virgin Mary

Kawaii anything, specially food and hello kitty characters..










Farm life


I also love horses, and everything country!

I collect ATCs ( with no raise embellishments, please), and Hand Made (flat) or Hand painted or drawn well made PostCards.
I prefer my PostCards naked and stamped!!!! I have grown found of Chuck O Cardboard postcards, specially those from beer labels. Some of them are so cool and colorful. Feel free to send me a chuck of cardboard for a postcard, just make sure is clean please!

I also love making art dolls with any media, specially embroidery and felt.

Favorite color is Teal (blue/green ocean shade). My favorite flower is a carnation.

I am one of those girls who does not do pink or purple. I do not mind receiving items in those colors, if that is what you want to do!

Favorite season is Fall / Autumn. I love specially the colors of the season and its deep hues. I also love red, white, and blue. I am very patriotic, and love my country.

Dislikes: I like almost every theme, as long as is not Gothic or gore, and no blood. Not really much into vampire, zombies, skulls or day of the dead, or anything evil-ish either .... nothing dark or morbid please! Trash to treasure. Dogs (had a realty bad experience a few years back). I respect everyone's believes and choices, but please no gay, LGBT, political artwork or items either.

I no longer watch TV, very rarely I do but when I did my Favorite TV Shows were:

Stargate SG -1
Stargate Atlantis
Original Star Trek series.
Drop dead Diva
Face Off I still watch (but not the gory stuff LOL Cartoon: Beavis and Butthead, Power puff Girls, Johnny Bravo, Classic Mickey and Gang, Class Looney Tunes (specially Dafty Duck), RugRats, Flintstone's, and The Jetson's.

No matter your skill, I would be very happy with something made from the heart! Rather than a store bought one. Please no political at all, or religious (unless Christian Bible verses) cards or postcards. . Things that are slapped together with little thought make me very sad.

I have been lucky to sell some of my art, including ACEOS. My specify trade is oil paintings, and I have sold some over the years.

lately crazy about the 5D Full Drill Square Diamond Painting

I am a soap and bath products aficionado. My excess inventory is listed on eBay. I have collections 4 times a year that are themed for the season and holidays, and I only use professional materials that are vegan friendly, gluten free, with no animal testing. Check my eBay link above if interested!

I currently do not have pets. I suffer from allergies, and just the touch of certain animals or plants send me on a frenzy, so (please be mindful of that when sending me anything that is not handled around animals if possible).

Please, PRETTY PLEASE do not send me . glitter, (confetti ok, as I use it for shaker cards), items that are dirty, or have a strong animal, smoke, or perfume smell. Not big on foam stickers either. I have a huge overflow of supplies, do not feel bad not to send extra, I have almost no space left. I still will give hearts. I love giving hearts, specially when things are sent with love.

I send out most of my swaps the first day partners are assigned. If for any reason you haven't received something from me in a swap, please message me and I'll resend. I would never just not send something. Also if you are a host who needs an angel, I am always happy to help!

Please note that I go to my PO Box twice a week, so it might take me a couple of days after receiving to rate the sender, but I will always rate. If after a considerable period of time I have not rate, is because I did not receive it.

I also have a ridiculous amount of supplies and stuff, actually, it has taken over my house! So I really do not need ephemera, papers, or anything at the moment. Do not feel guilty about no sending extra stuff, I really have way too much, I will still give you a heart when things a lovingly made! But if you are a soap maker, I would love samples of Cold Process soap!

I post what I have made for swapbot to my Flickr account. If you want to be surprised, don't click on the link!. You will probably find a spoiler!

Comment: Thank you for the postcard, I love your design ! It was supposed to be roughly 4x6 but I'll give you a 5 anyway ;) Edit : I wouldn't care for a 1/4 difference, your card is actually 4,5x7 !
Response: Thanks. USPS Postcard standards are actually 4-1/4 inches high x 6 inches long So I cut it that way, is that what you are referring to? 1/4 difference?

APDG - National Something on a Stick Day

We could put almost anything on a stick, mostly food.

I thought I'd seen it all but the spaghetti is interesting.
