I love this site and the joy it brings! I try to send quality swap packages, and hope for the same in return. I love to create and give. I send out all swaps on time, so if you haven't received something from me, please contact me!

badge every swap I receive (or don't receive!) It may take a few weeks but I will rate you, or contact you if your swap has not arrived. There is no need to message me about your rating. I want to make your experience swapping on this site a good one.

About Me


I am not easily offended.

My Politics: Do what you promise to do, don’t infringe on other people & their property.

I don’t look for reasons to be offended.

I'm mostly interested in exchanging art and handmade items. I am a paper artist, I am not a scrapbook-er.

Hearts and Extras:

I give hearts for swaps that makes my heart sing, extras have nothing to do with it.



I LOVE foreign run of the mill envelopes, small paper bags, stationery etc.

I like 60’s retro (not vintage) mid-century modern, coffee, clean lines, Christian religion, urban, Angels, bizzarro, quirky, clever, strange, off beat and dark humor. I like mermaids, burro’s, gnomes, the moon, Cats (Pets, not tigers, lions, etc), Quarter Horses, robots, the Northern Lights, dreams, sci fi, water, snow, storms, the woods, lightning, birch trees, Lake Superior, violets, lilly of the valley, lilacs, Hello Kitty, Charlie Brown and his crew, Black Watch tartan, craftsman style, Stampotique and delusions styles, and flat handmade paper fodder.

I love inexpensive fountain pens with ink, shrines, matchbox art, rocks, assemblage art, hand decorated paper, bento, handmade books, beaded items, needle books, digital art, handmade wallets/purses/bags, art dolls, creative writing, bowls, pottery, glass, zines, graphic arts, felted items, handmade ephemera, and handmade household items, die cut words and nature items, and snarky remarks. Any Stampington magazine new, or old.

I like highly saturated colors, not pale or pastel colors. I like cool blue, turquiose, tan, purple,....beachy colors. I like orange and dark pink.

Matchbox Art: I don't care for filled matchboxes ...so feel free to DECORATE the inside instead. There used to be lot's O’ swaps with decorated insides, but not so much any more. I promise I won't rate a 3 for not filling the box if the inside is decorate. I just don't like/want that tiny stuff inside.

I LOVE ribbon beads. Small holed, CUTE, wood, and (yuck) plastic beads will get the heave ho at my house.

I have pierced ears, and prefer silver to gold. I have small wrists. Bracelets around 7" fit me best.


No hearts here…No scraps of paper (specialty or plain), pencils, Stamped images, ball point pens, sharpie markers, erasers, books, pages from books, sheet music, coffee mugs, tags, playing cards, loose sequins, little do dad's for art, confetti, dollar store/discount items, ankle socks, Doo Wap or 50's items, small stickers, Disney, food, tea, candy, lotions, makeup, scents, plastic beads, wood beads, or consumables. Thank you but, I'm not interested in run of the mill paper from the US including pads of paper, and sticky notes.

CUTE, country or scrapbook styles. I prefer wilder, creative, bold, elegant, and thought provoking art.

I don't care for Pastel colors, and rust.

Extras - Thank you but, I have too much STUFF! I like to keep things purposeful, beautiful and simple.

I dislike people putting children's personal medical issues on the World Wide Web.

Mean girls

Over analysis. Seems like there is a lot of that today.

I don't like dirty, used, clean out your stash left overs! Although I would love to have a cigarette (I quit ages ago,) I don't like the smell on swaps..

I snarl at swaps that do not identify swap-bot, the name of the swap and swapper. I am in a lot of swaps. It's hard to figure out where a swap package came from with out your help!

I don’t like to receive political or social cause items.

OK, thank you for reading that!

Favorite Books

Nicholas and Alexandra, Atlas Shrugged, The little Prince, Ender's Game, The King of Oil, Steve Jobs the man who thought differently, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Infinity net: the Autobiography of Yayoi Kusama, and Metal Men.

MuggleMom rated for MAE: TAG SWAP 2 for 2: CHRISTMAS on Nov 23, 2022
Comment: Thank you for the nice tags. I love the vintage 1959 champions of liberty postage stamps you used on your envie alot! Even the postie made a comment - wow! xxMuggleMom
Comment: This is such a cute little painting! Thank you
Comment: Your ATC was sure cute and colorful. And it gave you a chance to use lots of the colors of your new Gelatos. I had no idea what they are, so I had to look them up online. And oh my!!! I am gonna need to add that to my wishlist to order. They are soooo versatile. And when they said you can use them on black paper - that convinced me to buy them. Looks like you used them and went over them with water - is that right? Thank you for opening a whole new world to me :-) Oh, and I loved the notecard with the artwork of the Moose from a UP Michigan artist. Do you know her?
Response: I don’t know her. I love the UP & wanted to support another artist.

You are pretty brilliant putting the gnome on a tiny envelope and filling it with goodies for the ABC Sender's Choice #21. The gnome is glad you sent him home. Happy Thanksgiving .

watercolorgirl on Nov 12, 2022:

I had to laugh when I saw my Jam you sent home. Love how you showed off the silly bird and added the music notes and dots to the back ground and also "best day ever". See ya in another JAM.

CookieMomster78 on Oct 15, 2022:

I love your creative addition of this “80’s” translucent paper on the Star Wars buddy jams I sent you. It’s perfect! I never would’ve thought of that. It’s just so cool! Thank you for making this another fun buddy jams experience and for returning the homer so quickly. I really live this ATC!

watercolorgirl on Sep 20, 2022:

Thanks for the return of Sept "22 JAM. The gnome is a hoot and makes the ATC.

watercolorgirl on Jul 21, 2022:

What a great finish to the ATC's x 4. What you added really makes the two ATC's really stand out. Thank you again for such a great job.

This mystery supply was so fun to work on. I'm originally from Wisconsin, and there are a lot of Norwegian people in the area, where I grew up. Oofda was a daily saying! :) Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
