About Me

(Disclosure Note: I was on Swap-Bot years ago, but have closed the Yahoo accounts that my profile was attached to. I'm trying to get the accounts merged, or get back into the old one. For right now I'm starting over from scratch! My old profile is here: http://www.swap-bot.com/user:fairyoflostthings

My name is Leah Lee. Columbus Ohio is where I call home and where I try to find ways to ensure the world is full of beautiful things. I am a found object artist, crafter, and art event organizer.

Additionally, I'm a goth girl, pagan, nerd, and dog mom. I was on Craftster long ago and I'm on SendSomething.Net (#8578).

I am into creepy stories, RPG's (DnD, ShadowRun, Pathfinder, etc.), Lovecraftian horror, and board games.

I am very interested in trading paper scraps, ephemera, writing prompts, journaling prompts, and other bits of art inspiration. Someone recently called them "trash bombs" and I think that's a great name. I am especially inspired by vintage things, Halloween, 7Gypsies and Tim Holtz "Idea-ology".

So no matter if you call it Happy Mail, Trash Bombing, or Envelope Tetris, I love curating a package and receiving things via the post.

I'm always up for personal swaps as well!! Just ask!

(I'll add more to this as I think of things! July 2021.)

Favorite Crafts

painting (acrylic and water color), sculpting (polymer clay), drawing, greeting cards, junk journals, recycled paper crafts, knitting, sewing, quilting, drawing mandalas, stamp carving, embroidery & cross-stitch, alters & shrines, altered puzzles, spinning, gel plate printing or mono printing

I want to learn the following: tatting, bobbin lace, and crochet (I love granny squares and doilies)

I love to receive...

Letters and postcards, embroidery, witchy things (kitchen witches, good luck witches, cauldrons, brooms, etc.) things for Dungeons and Dragons, Halloween things.

Odd signs or embroidered words (My favorite sign in my house right now "Please: No singing No Dancing No Swearing. This is a respectable house.")

Victorian styles, vintage 1920's through 1950's styles, Rockabilly, Gothabilly, Psycobilly, Pagan, odd ball bits and pieces...

Comment: Leah, thank you so much for these lovely junk journal signatures. I had a pretty rough day at work and it was SO nice to sit down with a cup of tea and open this swap! I loved going through all the pockets and tuck spots and discovering all the little extras inside. You included so many handmade goodies! I love all the texture you used and that page with the sewn vines and stamped flowers is absolutely gorgeous ๐Ÿ˜ I'm excited to collect more signatures and make them into a nice chunky journal!
