About Me

Update 1/8/23

Thanks everyone for being careful with envelopes this year. I have had very few that have been too thick and needed extra postage. Aloha!

Update 1/19/22

This week I received notices on 3 different envelopes that the PO wanted around $5 postage due. I had to send them back to the senders as I don't keep cash around. Hopefully you'll be able to repackage and resend with envelopes that are UNDER 1/4" thick.

Updated 7/21/21

My post office is scrutinizing envelopes and anything that is even barely over 1/4" thick, they are sending to me with around $4 postage due. I am having to send them back, so please don't be offended, I just never have cash around to pay for them.

So, double check those envelopes if you are sending to me, please.


I rate every swap as it comes in. If you think I should have received from you and I haven't rated, please let me know. If I chose not to rate for some reason, I will contact you about the reason.

I usually send quite early. If you haven't received from me, please, please let me know. I'll do everything in my power to make it right.



I love to eat and love to craft!

I am totally not a girly-girl! I live in Jeans and T-shirts.

I live in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. I am in my mid 40s and work in costuming in the theatre.

I recycle or "up-cycle" EVERYTHING! I see new uses and projects in so-called trash. Including packaging! I can't throw away a bubble envie that has only been used once!

I do mostly fabric crafts and collage. Sometimes I use all fabric so that I don't loose the hand of the fabric for ATC.

I can't draw unless you want stick figures; I can do a mean stick figure. :)

Things I Love

I love handmade. I would always love a handmade item even if the swap calls for purchased!!

I love Teesha Moore inspired padded patches!! I have been making and trading, so let me know if you'd like to do a swap.

I love batik fabrics, fabrics with small prints other than flowers, fun colored rick-rack, interesting buttons, unusual ribbons and lace

I do a lot of ATCs, Tags, and junk journals.

I love dragons, dragons, dragons, gargoyles, fairies, mermaids, octopi, Celtic art, Mythological creatures, old school "oops" style pinup girls, Alice in Wonderland, The Emerald City (from Wizard of Oz) and did I mention dragons. :)

I love unusual or NON-Disney fairy tale images (think Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Little Mermaid, etc).

I love Highland Cows! Images or art using realistic photos of them are always appreciated.

I love Edward Gorey!

I collect artist made earrings and necklaces. I love original works that I can wear around.

I especially like any candy or snack or food things that are special to an area. I love to try different snacks.

I love dark colors (black, purple, maroon, blue, etc).
I also love jewel tones. I'm not a big fan of pink/pastels or muddy greens.

I collect interesting necklaces and earrings, 1976 drummer boy Quarters (Bicentennial), space postage stamps, Matryoshka dolls (Russian nesting dolls)

I always love to get interesting die cuts (especially lacy ones or ones that have a lot of cut out space), Halloween paper crafting supplies, beautiful/interesting papers, interesting colored paper doilies

I use a lot of tape runners, Elmer's Craft Bond glue sticks, little tubes of E6000, double sided craft tape


Not so fond of:

Please no alcohol related items. I'm sober for over 3 years and going strong.

Please nothing political from any party.

I don't like scented things (like soap, lotion, potpouri, etc). Nor do I wear makeup.

I am not the biggest fan of things overly "cutesie" (big eye dolls and kids, etc). Disney is not my favorite, but I'm easy going.

I don't have a use for kid related, wedding, scrapbooking or decorative items, altered match boxes or mini zines.

I don't use any modern ephemera; I just don't have a use for it.

I don't really have a use for bookmarks unless they are something that is an image from one of my likes that I can use in my junk journals. I'm a kindle girl :)

Favorite Movies

Action pics, Comedies, James Bond, Hellboy, Serenity, A Christmas Story

Favorite Television

Psych, Dirty Jobs, How It's Made, Firefly, Eureka, Scooby Doo, Bones, Futurama, Warehouse 13, Supernatural, Murder She Wrote, historical dramas

Favorite Crafts

I really enjoy making ATCs, PCs, junk journal elements, altered index cards, note cards, etc.

I cook a lot. But I do not bake much - can't have the stuff around the house!

Favorite Music

Heavy Metal, Classic Rock, Classical, Scissor Sisters, Nina Simone, Jazz

Comment: A fun heart ATC for February to get in the mail. I had to haul out magazines too and it has been a while for me too. Maybe with practice we will get better at it. Happy Valentine's Day.

Comment: Thank you for the Frankentine - I like your choice of papers. And I also like that you sent it as a postcard. (Somehow it did not occur to me to do that, I sent mine in an envelope.) Best wishes!
Response: LOL. I had to go back and look at the swap. In my head it was a PC size and so I sent it as a PC. I'm glad you like it. Aloha!

Hannah, It was so sweet of you to send me your version of the FFF: Mystery Supply Swap. The tag is beautiful. I love the texture you achieved by putting the paper over the joint tape — great idea! I’ll probably steal (copy) it. Thank you so much. Jan

Hey Girl! Thanks so much for the pretty papers and postcards!! Love it :) Hope you are doing well!

Mahalo for my homer ATC with the patchwork fabric and heart - I don’t “like” how you finished it - I LOVE it!!! 💙 You’re quite good at creating art with threads and this is another favorite ATC in my collection. I’ve never done a french knot (if that’s the correct term?!) but these red, green, and yellow knots on the ATC look like the daintiest of flowers to me and I like how they feel when I run my thumb across the top of the card. Thanks for making this such a fun and pleasant tactile card!

Hi Hannah, Want to thank you so much for being an awesome swap partner this year in the stocking stuffer swaps we both joined. Wow everything is so nice and just what I love! I will enjoy wearing all the cute earrings. I love the adorable vintage fabric and pretty laces. Oh the painted lace is gorgeous! It's so nice to have new earrings to wear. I have plans to make a quilt throw for my desk chair with the fabric and laces will go so nicely in my journals or makes to share. I hope you had a stuffed stocking this year too! Lol Thank you again for making me feel special and Happy New Year! Hope to see you in 2023 swaps!
