About Me

I am VERY disheartened with Swap-bot right now! I have sent expensive awesome swaps, that I have photos of and Post Office receipts and the swapper claims they didn't receive it or I didn't get rated!! But if you are just a bit late with your swap , you can bet everyone is all over you for not receiving their swap on time with a grand 1 rating. I had to STOP and take a deep breath and I will resume my swap obligations. I have one I received back for wrong address. This just isn't very inspiring in the creative spirit department.. Thank you for letting me voice my opinion. Love you guys!

    I am a tattoo artist residing in Georgia. I am originally from New Jersey but have spent the last 34 years here in the south. 

May 13th of this year I will be tattooing 39 years! I was trained as a technical illustrator and attended art school for commercial art and photography. Aside from tattooing, I was trained to pierce by Fakir in San Fran. Outside of tattooing I garden, I am in the midst of writing a novel. I also illustrate and paint original works of art!

Favorite Music

Willie Nelson is my hero. I like southern rock, classic rock and depending on my mood, Eddie Spaghetti, Janis, Bob Marley, P.J. Harvey etc.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy reading, gardening, and of course painting anything and everything. I enjoy beading peyote pouches and also stringing necklaces and altering books, and other objects and making mini altars! .

I would enjoy receiving:

Semi-precious stones, items with owls, wolves, ravens and crows, Siamese cats,( the owl is my birth totem and the raven has been making appearances), two deer sleep under my bedroom window!, witchy/pagan items, candles, (especially 7 Day candles), rosary beads, incense,( prefer resin incense), relaxing things for my bath time (I love lavender), seeds for my garden, anything with siamese cats, herbs, fabric scraps, anything vintage.... and I love tarot cards, I have my original deck a friend of mine bought for my 18th birthday. That deck is now 35years old!!

I would rather not receive:

Candy, granny crafts, no religious items except for the items I listed in my want list above or Catholic related, yarn, stuffed animals or anything with a fruity scent.

You can always send me a message to double check with me before sending out a swap.


Comment: Wow,wow love the necklace and notepad and such a sweet card. Thank you

I'm sorry to see you got Partially Suspended ---because it's clear you really are trying to catch up on all your old swaps! I hope you can get "out of the red" soon! Keep plugging away and you are sure to make it--and think twice before signing up for so many at once! :)
