Hi, I'm Christine and I like to make stuff. My pursuits generally are paper-crafting, but I've dabbled in jewelry-making, fused glass, glass enameling, assemblage, and photography. It's nice to be able to swap creations with other creative types.
• Mixed Media
• Altered Books/Art Journals
• Junk Journals
• Flip Books
• Gel Plate Prints
• Vintage/Flea Market items
• Old cameras
• Old Photos/Cabinet Cards
• Vintage Buttons/Trims
• Vintage Millinery trims
• Vintage papers
• Vintage Children’s books
• B&W Photography
• Typography (anything with letters and numbers; particularly the ampersand)
• Old Typewriters
• Rulers/Measuring Tapes
• Locks/Keys/Skeleton Keys
• Dresden Trims
• Vintage Jewelry (I will use broken pieces in my projects)
• Vintage Industrial Rusty Things
• Dogs (we have two Australian Shepherds)
• Mermaids (not super cutesy)
• Sea Turtles
• Beach/Shells/Sea Glass
• Halloween (my favorite holiday!)
• Damask patterns
• Tim Holtz
• Martha Stewart
• Rifle Paper Co.
NOTE: I am scent sensitive, so please nothing heavily fragranced.
• Ocean Colors: Blue, Teal, Aqua
• Vintage Grunge
• Black and White
• Navy and White
Valentine's Day: Conversation Hearts, vintage Beistle Honeycomb cards, vintage valentine postcards, hearts, more pink than red, probably the only time I like things a bit more frou-frou
Easter: rabbits, chicks, eggs, vintage postcards, Cadbury mini eggs, jelly beans
Halloween: vintage Halloween collectibles, paper-mache candy buckets, crows/ravens, witches, Poe, vampires, candy corn, B&W decor, spooky chic. I like macabre, but not over-the-top gorey...Edward Gorey is good though ;-). I have a small feather tree I put up, so mini ornaments are a great addition.
Thanksgiving: acorns, leaves, rustic pumpkins, wheat sheaths
Christmas: vintage Shiny Brite ornaments, D56 Dickens Village Historical Series, Radko glass ornaments, vintage Christmas decor. I don't do the traditional red and green decor, I mostly decorate with navy, silver, and white with pops of green. Since I live in Florida, beach or nautical themed Christmas items are perfectly fitting.
I strive to go beyond the swap requirements, and only send items that I would be thrilled to receive myself. I'm appreciative of other swappers that have obviously put thought, time, and effort into their swap packages.
I always send out my swaps. If you do not receive anything from me, please let me know. I want you to be happy swapping with me. ;-)
While extras are nice, I really don’t need any more of anything. I can’t even organize the stuff I already have. Please don’t feel you need to send anything else beside the swap items. Thanks!

Hi! I'm LOVING opening my Halloween envelopes each day! The printed readables are wonderful and will make a great book at the end of the month when I put them all back in the envelope book. The gifts are awesome too!!! This is so much fun - thank you!
We are in the Countdown to Halloween swap together though may not be assigned as partners. I am reading profiles of folks in it with me as I make up my 30 envelopes. I know that writing something for each of them will take time and it feels worth it to me.
