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.
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)
Greens, cool tones and jewel tones, grays
Retro, vintage, stickers and ephemera
Trees, flowers and birds especially cardinals
Book pages in any foreign language
I like many colors but GREENS are my favorite
Most types of art (dislike cutesy, cartoony characters)
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)
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.
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. 😁
most documentaries, craft shows, Public Television, BBC/PBS Masterpiece, True crime shows and podcasts. Currently watching Schitt$ Creek.
If you are the type to include extras or if we’re in a swap that is profile based… I’m easy to please with all size book pages in a foreign language (folded is ok), handmade/textured/printed/specialty papers, art clippings, original art, weird/odd ephemera, fussy cuts, paper clusters… basically all of the junk journal things
