** --NOTE --**
I am taking July through September off from swap bot, so I will not be signing up for anything with a due date in those months (except for some zine swaps, which I mailed in MAY/JUNE, and some collaborative swaps).
Everything is ok, I just need to take my time to find my muse again, and focus on getting stronger.
Ratings for any June swaps will be more sporadic over the summer months.
** -- ABOUT ME -- **
I am someone who has always had pen pals from a very young age. Receiving "happy mail" is always fun, and it is a joy to spread the cheer as well.
I love to try all different types of arts and crafts.
Mailing in the USA - ZIP+4 is important: Here is a link to properly address an item so the USPS "optical character recognition" equipment can read the address:
If you believe I am late with a swap, kindly reach out to me to resolve the issue.
Please also reach out to me if there is any postage due.
I mark my swap items "sent" on the date I put them in the mailbox...it may or may not match the date it is postmarked.
Reduce/Reuse/Recycle - I recycle bubble and large envelopes. I also save and re-use all the thin plastic packaging from craft supplies, often to protect my swaps.
I try to rate people within a week of receiving the swap, so please include the name of the swap (thanks in advance).
My hobbies are "collecting art supplies", cardmaking, bookbinding, mini-books, papercrafts, collage, rubber stamping, mixed media art and fine art.
I love to swap handmade cards, zines, ATCs and mail art.
I also journal, art journal, and have pen pals. I am trying to practice with watercolors. I just bought a sewing machine and hope to incorporate sewing into my journal making, collage and cardmaking.
This year I am also new to collecting postcards, especially those with contemporary art or destinations on them.
Dogs (especially Shih Tzu's), Birds, Pink Flamingos (ironically), Beach themes, Palm Trees, NYC, David Bowie, Star Trek (all of them), Hello Kitty, matching stationery sets, any holiday stickers (at any time of year), stickers for grown-ups, vellum stickers, "Greetings From" Postcards , motivational cards/ PCs, humorous (nonpolitical) PCs and notecards, Feminist themes, and items handmade by YOU!
Love to receive little notes from my swap partners!

Kindly avoid sending political items.
Please do not send Friendship Books (FBs) or Slams.
I am sensitive to strong scents, so kindly do not send any scented items, or those that may smell of smoke. Please do not send any food or drink items.
Although I love happy mail surprises, I am trying to get organized, so at this time I think the only extras I would really use at this time are :
Anything from my postcard list below
printed swap insert sheets/cards
(or PDF printables) (I love all the different designs out there)
If I don't need something, I'm sure I can pass it along to someone else or incorporate it into a journal, collage or mini book. :-)
