10/1/21 Update: Hi everyone! As of today I'm taking a break for a few months. I've got a lot going on at the moment and the time I have available for swapping is limited. I always want to put in 100% effort, so I'll return to swapping once I'm able to do so! I will miss it! It's seriously so fun and addicting! If you don't already, please follow me on Instagram: Kitschydesignsbykara to stay in touch! Take care everyone, see you in the future!
Hi everyone! I'm Kara from Kitschy Designs by Kara! I'm an artist based in Central PA and my focus is paper crafts, collage, mixed media, and jewelry with a funky vintage vibe! I love all things vintage and retro! Mid century modern, art deco, and 80s mall vaporwave pastels are all my type of aesthetic! When I'm not working full time or crafting, I'm either thrifting or rollerskating! Check out my Instagram: @kitschydesignsbykara I'm very active on there. I take swaps seriously and will go the extra mile! I like to send swaps out way before the deadline! The day I mark a swap "sent" is the day I put it in the outgoing mail... it may get postmarked later when it is processed by my small town's post office. I love the thrill of getting happy mail in my PO Box, so I'm open to private swaps as well! The mail is still going out super slow, so if it has been two weeks from the deadline and you still have not received anything it is because it got lost in the mail. I NEVER flake so please let me know if you didn't receive anything by that two week mark and I'll re-send promptly!
analog collage, junk Journaling, artist trading cards, jewelry, gelli printing, stained glass, Pottery
While I never expect anything extra, here are some things I'd love to receive in happy mail: washi tape (any style)

Here is a list of some of my past swap partners that have been awesome to be paired with! They've gone the extra mile and always send amazing things! I'd you get paired with them, rest assured that you'll be happy!

Glitter and confetti (if sending me this please make sure it's well contained and not just floating loose in the envelope! I love glitter but my husband does not!)
I love receiving all kinds of jewelry! I have pierced ears and love anything from small studs to long dangling earrings! I have a medium to large size wrist (I wear a small standard fit bit band). My ring size is a 9. Sometimes I'll size up to a 10 to wear on my middle finger.
