About Me

I love anything vintage. I am currently engrossed in making junk journals and have a love of old paper, ephemera and old floral and botanical illustrations. Would love to swap some of my prized paper collection, including old stamps, gardening books, paper and much more. LIKES: Anything paper, vintage and botanical.. DISLIKES: Neon, tie dye and glitter

Favorite Books

My favorite authors are: Barbara Kingsolver, Thrity Umrigar, Erik Larson, Joyce Carol Oates, Ruth Rendell...to name a few.....I am a voracious reader and could not possibly name all my favorite books.

Favorite Crafts

Currently any craft involving paper. I love making books, art and junk journals and on occasion an assembledge piece. In the past I have made baskets, done some batiking, made cards, done origami, made quilts and have done quite a few sewing projects. I have recently started making ATCs.

Other Interests

I love to read and garden. Can’t wait for spring so I can put my hands in the earth.

Favorite Collections

Posrcards, old quilt fabric pieces, Alice in Wonderland books ( no, I do not cut them up for my journals), ephemera of all types, postage stamps, botanical books....and more.

About Me

JJJ-Let’s make a junk journal. This sounds like a very exciting swap. I mostly make “vintage” inspired junk journals. Lots of nature: flowers,birds,animals, mushrooms..I have recently tried adding a little more color to my journals-and especially love green,purple and blue..I love labels, vintage washi and stickers..Although I have never used a digital kit (printer and ink cost issues) I find myself loving some of Tracie Fox and Artymaze’s digital kits-especially the labels…who doesn’t love labels? I have also started experimenting with some eco-dyeing and recently dyed some paper using hibiscus..Also made some eco-prints using the flowers and leaves I have in my garden. I was pleased with the first attempt and will definitely be trying it again. Excited to start this swap. Items I am always grateful to receive: Handwritten ledger sheets Old envelopes Vintage looking washi and washi stickers Old postcard Old photos Eco dyed paper Labels Handmade paper Lace Any old ephemera Sari silk Small botanical illustrations

Comment: Thank you for all of the wonderful papers. I really like the Hibiscus as well, and it’s interesting how different they are on the two papers. Love the marbled papers you sent too. These will be nice to use in so many projects.

Comment: Hi Diane, Gorgeous papers! I can't choose a favorite love them all. Thank you for an awesome swap and the extra papers. These will be wonderful to use in my journal and other projects. I'm having a blast staining and still am. Lol Have a few more things I want to try. Science experiments at its best! Lol How do you get the coffee to not smell? I tried coffee a few years ago and it just stunk! Maybe it was the kind I used. (a strong instant blend) Yuck! Lol
Response: I’ve always used the cheapest instant coffee I could find.. Sometimes I notice a smell and sometimes, not so much..Glad you like the paper.
