About Me

Hello! I went to school for textile design, and now... I make things for a living. Lots of stationery, postcards, and the odd crocheted piece now and then. If you are extremely interested, feel free to check out my etsy store. (The link is above...)

I also really enjoy putting together special packages to mail out to people. You can rest assured that whatever I send to you will be memorable for both you and the postmaster. I am thoroughly convinced that the postal workers at the local post office think I am crazy.

things that tickle my fancy

hand made anything...I enjoy and admire the textile arts and most hand crafts.

rainbows! ... (oh yeah. I'm a long-time fan of them.)

a specific color combination that I currently love is orange and hot pink.....that's if you can't handle a whole rainbow. :P I also like most metallics, I have a slight tendency to spray paint everything gold.

unicorns ... (especially silly ones)

magnets ... (Especially if they feature someone's art or photography!)

kittens ... (if they have laser eyes, all the better)

pretty much any cute illustration of an animal



things that should be scary, but end up cute ... or things that should be cute, but end up scary

polka dots

retro advertisements

tea (I drink it all the time) ...and chai

fountain pens and fountain pen inks

books in French - on virtually any subject, and in any condition (tattered, smells like "old book", got it for 10 cents at the second hand store, it doesn't matter bc I love them all!)

zines about pretty much anything (especially minizines, the ones that are 1/8th the size of a standard sheet of paper)

your artwork on a postcard! (that includes photography)

friendship bracelets ... (I'm apparently hooked on them)

barbie sized shoes, clothes, whatever...I like crafting at the one sixth scale, and putting together rooms with accessories for my dolls, then photographing them and sharing the photos online.

pieces of fabric with tiny scale prints on them (like florals) because I use them to make clothes for dolls ;)

popular things I don't do...

I'll admit to being weird-ed out by getting edibles in the mail ... (with the exception of tea, if it's wrapped, tea is OK).

I suddenly found myself with a massive sticker collection...which I don't really need, so I'm sending them out to swap partners who might like them. With that said, I definitely don't need any more stickers! (I'm swimming in them!)

beads (I generally pass them on to a friend)

A popular craft that I don't do is scrap booking, so ... random bits of paper, embellishments, brads, etc. would be passed on to another swapper in the future. :)

my fake allergies


cigarette smoke

Comment: Thanks for the teas and extras...I had to pay $0.45 to get the envelope...Please make sure to tape the teas flat or it goes to one side and is a higher postage cost
Response: Oh, sorry about that. It started flat; I guess I'll tape them next time.
Comment: thank you.

Hi Cara--thanks for the "small profile surprise" tag postcards. Great idea! And I really liked the stamps on the back. I know I am hard to send to--thanks for tagging me :-)

Potatoez on Nov 22, 2010:

Thank you for the warm welcome :)

minniemack on Nov 17, 2010:

Hi Cara,

Yes, you are right--the yarn is great! Perrrrrfect color for me :-) I'm curious if you use that weight for embroidery? I'm not sure what I'll use mine for, but I know I'll find something!

pamelaz on Nov 11, 2010:

Hi Cara. Thanks for the way cooler Profile Surprise. The "Love Machine" and "Super Fly" made me smile. Also the arrow to the "Lemur" on the envelope made me laugh in the elevator so everyone looked at me. <3 Thanks again!

since you can't rate a response to a swap, here's your 5 with heart for the package you sent in response to the awesome package i sent you...now, if you'll excuse me, i need to retreat back to my place of hiding because Jackie Chan is still searching for me after i escaped from him once when he confronted me (I was wondering what he was waving that bill at me for, didn't get your parcel until the next day when i popped out to see if he had gone).

bizzles on Oct 28, 2010:

thanks for the thankyou! the little cards and magnet were cute!
