I learned about swap-bot from friends who make ATCs at atcsforall. I am actively swapping postcards on postcrossing, and I participated in a recent postcard swap in Margrete Miller's Collage Collective.
I am somnia at AFA, ykarenes on Postcrossing, and ksomnia on IG
I like making postage stamp collages and other types of collaged postcards.
Feb 2023; I'm enrolled in Fodder School (I and II) so I've started accumulating lots of hand-made fodder to to use in my collages.
Dec 2022: I enjoy watching well-edited process videos on YouTube - bonus points if they make a mistake and explain how they moved forward with the project! Some of my current favorites are Cat Hand and Karen Burchill.
Used postage stamps. I use them to make ATCs and collaged postcards, so it's ok to send me low collector value CTOs, damaged perforations, and duplicates. I'm currently obsessed with Italian stamps. I also like US love stamps, colorful stamps, Christmas, butterflies, flowers, animals.... I can use almost anything except heads of people I don't know - I don't want to inadvertently use a controversial figure stamp in a collage.
I prefer to receive written postcards in an envelope with nice stamps if it costs the same for you. You can still address the postcard and put a used low denomination stamp on it so it looks like it was mailed "naked" if you want.
Tea - I love black teas. Irish Breakfast and Darjeeling are favorites
Sadly I can no longer do tea swaps because Canada Post will not allow anything that isn't paper to be sent lettermail. Sending tea bags as packages is cost-prohibitive. I do still like to trade emtpty tea bags for papercrafting, though!
The color purple
Big cats - cheetahs, lynx, leopards tigers, etc.
Puffins, penguins and woodpeckers
Lichstenstein-style pop art
Murals and street art
Unicorns Horses Dogs Gore
Making atcs and handmade postcards. I'm currently into making maxicards using big postage stamps that would overhwhelm an ATC.
I have a perennial garden that more or less flowers throughout the season and produces a crazy amount of rhubarb.
I use the rhubarb baking muffins. I like baking but don't really like cooking.
For workouts I like swimming, Pilates and circuit training. I used to love to run but am having foot problems.
I'm re-watching Charmed. I can't remember if I finished it completely when it was first on tv, but I remember loving that show.
I've watched Dowton Abbey twice. I really like historical fiction like the Crown.
I'm trying to like House of the Dragon but I'm not really into it like GoT yet.
I am usually in a FitBit challenge, but I rarely win.
