*Please Note*

I am an American living in Poland and I am fed up with how slow the US postal service is -- it was taking 6-8 weeks for delivery! I’m sure my wonderful partners were frustrated too even though they didn’t complain. Anyway, I’m going to try out European regional swaps for a bit.

Favorite Crafts

I ❤️ making Junk Journals, art journals, collecting ephemera. I prefer true, actual junk and tend to shy away from store bought/pretty/cute procured “junk” that is masked as old junk. I also enjoy painting on canvas and thick paper. Sewing, paper crafts and scrapbooking.
I like to DIY just about everything. I enjoy repurposing paper napkins. I like making my own stickers. I use a Silhouette Cameo for many of my crafts. Instagram is my go-to for social media (profile name : sarah.swaps)

Likes

Greens, cool tones and jewel tones, grays

Retro, vintage, stickers and ephemera

Trees, flowers and birds especially cardinals

Typography

I like many colors but GREENS are my favorite

Most types of art (dislike cutesy, cartoony characters)

Elephants, octopus

Fabrics, ribbons, lace, washi tape, patterned paper napkins

Repurposing - well, everything - to make it something fabulous

I appreciate a well placed swear word and sarcastic humor.

Retro prints and patterns

Matching funky colors together

Traveling in Europe

Listening to podcasts and music. Pink Floyd is my favorite band. I enjoy 70/80/90s Rock (Fleetwood Mac, U2, ABBA, Lynyrd Skynyrd)

About Me

I'm 40, a wife and mom of 3 ( girl and boys). I currently live in a giant house and I am so lucky to have a big craft room all to myself. Enjoy cooking, but not complex recipes (semi-homemade). I get a kick out of planning and traveling around Europe since we’ve lived here since 2017. I don't care for the vanilla scent. I’m Christian and don’t mind other religious items. I enjoy learning about and have an appreciation for other cultures and beliefs.

Note on handmade items

I really enjoy and appreciate handmade items. Even if it’s not my style, if I see that you put your twist and creativity into it, I will like it. No need to stress about meeting my profile likes. You do you, and share it with me. 😁

Favorite Television

most documentaries, craft shows, Public Television, BBC/PBS Masterpiece, True crime shows and podcasts. Currently watching Schitt$ Creek.

Comment: Hi Sarah, Thank you so much for the lovely Hygge mail. Very cute and cozy! I gasped when I saw your return address - I was just IN your town last month! (And had never heard of it before). We walked the red trail in the city center. 😁👍🏻 It was my first time in Poland. Thanks for your address anyway - I might drop you a line or two in the near future. 👍🏻
Response: What a small world! I get a kick out of this community for many reasons and this is a neat coincidence. I had never heard of Szczecin either before we moved here. It’s by far the biggest city I’ve lived in (405,000 population)

Comment: Received the resend today! I actually went to the Johnny Cash museum this summer...it was AWESOME! I went to their cafe too which was pretty cool as well. I think I spent my whole souvenir ‘budget’ in these two places 😂 Received what I think is the resend today. It has a note on it that says ‘Missent to Milwaukee, Wi’ and even has a time stamp from Illinois 😳
Response: Holy cow. That took entirely too long to get to you. I don’t understand what’s going on with USPS. I’m sticking to European swaps from now on. Looks like I should send my Christmas cards out by October 1st

Comment: A second card arrived today for this swap. Like the first one, this postcard isn't entirely covered by stickers, as the swap requires.
Response: Would you like me to send a third one?

Comment: Hello. I have never seen Casablanca. I saw a few minutes of it once, but should give it a second try. I enjoy movies from that era. Thanks for the Postcard. Best Wishes to You! Update 9/3/2021- I received a 2nd postcard from you. The first had already arrived. Thank you for resending even thought you didn’t need to. Take care!

Comment: It's my first time receiving an original zines (I usually get printouts) and I am marveling at it. The colours were a given, but the texture and volume you gave each page is stunning. Thank you so much ! I hope you enjoyed making this zine and will create more. :)
Response: I’m so glad that you liked it. Making zines is new to me so I was a little nervous.

Comment: Hi ya Sarah! I received your resend today and thank you so much, for the Michael Jackson PC! I love it and I miss seeing his concerts & his moves! I do see we have some things in common. Esp. Halloween! Love it ! Esp. decorating and going around the neighborhood, looking at all the lights & decos. Applies to Christmas as well. How nice of you to say that, that you liked reading my profile. I enjoyed yours as well. Again, thank you!
Response: That PC was actually the original so you’ll be getting another one next month probably. Why, oh why does the mail have to be so slow?!

No, a third one isn't necessary. I suggest reading the swap name and the swap description for more details.
