About Me

Update 4/12/22

I will be traveling during the months of May and June, so I will not be joining any more swaps for the time being. If during this time, you have not received from me, please message me and let me know. I'll take a few supplies with me, because I can never be far from my crafting.

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 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 have been doing lots of ATC's. Love creating those little pieces of art!

Right now I am doing a lot of JAMS, but I am slowing down a bit with work getting busy.

I love dragons, dragons, dragons, gargoyles, fairies, mermaids, octopi, Celtic art, Mythological creatures, old school "oops" style pinup girls, Alice in Wonderland, and did I mention dragons. :)

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 am not a pastel girl unless it is like pink mixed with a funky black motif. I'm not a big fan of pink or muddy greens.

I collect tiaras, Hum-Vees (H1 only), interesting necklaces and earrings, 1976 drummer boy Quarters (Bicentennial), space postage stamps


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, so please don't send it, it will only end up in the trash.

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 have really gotten into ATC's lately. Really having fun with that.

I do a lot of sewing, general crafts, found object sculpture, Doll recons

I make a lot of jewelry.

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

Favorite Books

Anything by Tom Robbins, The Three Musketeers series, Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass, Cozy Mysteries

Favorite Music

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

Things I'm looking for

Right now I am looking for the following things for projects I have brewing.

Please message if you'd like to set up a private swap!


Bicentennial Quarters (USA 1976 quarters) - with the drummer boy on the back side,

I also collect non-cutsie dragons. I have a love of mythical creatures.

I love fun earrings (pierced).

I have a collection of vintage jewelry with light blue rhinestones and always love to add to it.

I collect cloisonne jewelry.

I am collecting Teesha Moore inspired padded patches.

I collect space postage stamps from any country. Canceled or not canceled.


Right now I am also collecting specific ATCs and ATCoins in the following themes:

  • Dragons (non cutesie)
  • The Emerald City
  • Mythical Beasts (non cutsie)
  • Mermaids and Fairies (non cutsie)
  • Celtic Knot work
  • Octopus

Private swaps

I am always up for private swaps.

I crochet, sew, make paper crafts. I make a lot of jewelry.

Comment: Thanks for the Camelot and Real Genius patches. RG is an 80s fave, but I have to confess I did not recognize the t-shirt. I've watched it so many times but next round I'll have to check out the shirt.

Comment: Hi Hannah and thank you so much for this wonderful Asian inspired ATC. I love the images that you used and the red flower in the corner just sets it off! I also love working with tissue paper. Have you tried rice paper - I love that as well and there are a ton of great patterns out there. And many thanks for ALL the fun extra goodies you tucked inside! I love the MMA group and so happy to be a part of it! Cheers!
Response: I'm so glad you liked the ATC. Thank you for your kind words. I have used a bit of rice paper, but I am a stickler for not buying anything new that I don't have to - so I don't have it in my craft supplies very often. Aloha
