About Me

I'm a full-time academic librarian and also hooked on bookbinding, artist's books, zines, mail art, collage, paper making, and paper decoration.

Although I do a lot of paper arts, I also enjoy trying new things, and sometimes I sew small felt projects!

Someday I'd like to learn printmaking... and have recently begun to teach myself linocuts!

Please note that I'm from Canada and our postal system is slow! It can take up to 8 weeks to reach some places in the US so please be patient. I always send out my swaps!

Comment: sorry it took a while to rate life on the farm has been kinda crazy! one of the alpacas rejected her baby so i have bottle feeding duty so it has kept me away from some of my crafting and computer time.
Comment: Absolutely adorable! I love the earth tones that you used on this cute ATC! And how clever to use a map for the mailing envelope too. Thanks so much for the extra owl embellishments--they will be used! :) blessings, Gypsy

Robin: I have known for years that there are many wonderful people in this world, and a lot of them are right here on Swap-bot. Your kind and generous offer to join a group of special angels --- helping me to make and send a total of 210 handmade ornaments for those who were flaked on in the MEGA Christmas 2009 Ornament Swap --- is VERY much appreciated. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. If I can ever do anything to help you out in return, please let me know. (รขโ‚ฌล“;) Hugs, Terry

Hey there! You've joined the Halloween Whimsey Shoebox Swap...but it seems the host has disappeared. I've started a similar swap for people who feel more comfortable with an active host. You can find it here. We'd love for you to join. =]

Just curious - is the bird on your avatar a robin? If it is, it's not at all like the robins we have over here!

Madmadamimm on May 22, 2009:

Hi Robin! I just wanted to check on the owlie goodness I sent your way. I sent it on the last day(the 15th) so it may not have made it to yet. I hope it gets there soon, and you like it. ^_^
