Favorite Crafts

I have recently gotten into mixed media. I am making tags and bookmarks. Started an art journal, and would like to try to make ATCs.

Junk Journals!!! My new obsession. Victorian, romantic, steampunk, gothic, celebrity, fashion. cooking, gardening, nature. Anything really, as long as the theme is consistent throughout. And lots of pages for journalling! Some of the youtube videos I have watched have so much stuff, but little to actually write on.

I like to paint ceramics, mostly dragons. I am also trying to make polymer clay dragons. I do some oddball craft projects, mostly steampunk or goth-themed, like hidden compartment books and jewelry boxes. I make my own envelopes for penpalling sometimes.


Things I would love to do swaps for--Journalling supplies, lace, buttons.

I have lots of large(8 X 4) luggage tags if you want to do a private swap. I would love some smaller ones, plus any kind of ephemera.

DIE CUTS--These are expensive to buy, so I now have a Sizzix Big Shot. The dies aren't cheap, so I would love to trade! Love, love anything steampunk or Tim Holtz. Also need flowers, butterflies, STARS, frames, decorative edging. I have steampunk gears, owls, hearts, and soon will have clocks and pipe pieces. One-on-one swaps welcome.

Likes and Dislikes

I am really easy to get along with, not much don't like! I don't drink real coffee, just GFIC, everyone makes fun of me,lol.

I like hot tea, but not herbal or chai. Prefer green or black with fruit.

I don't like licorice or peppermint candy.

I am not a Hello Kitty fan, but I do like chimis, and kawaii things.

Anything dragon-related, but not overly fond of the chinese style dragons.Love Smaug!!!

Comment: Thank you for your email! Your summer nights sound like a good time for you to connect with family and friends. Mine are usually spent stargazing or going on walks at dusk to try and spot bats!

Comment: Purple is my favorite color too! I've also dyed my hair purple. I think it is great when people are so passionate about their interests. You don't have to tell me twice about the heat! It is unbearable!

Comment: Thank you so much! I don't think I had most of these types of things before, especially stamps.
Comment: !!! I was really really blown away with this package. I have no idea which item is even my favorite! The fabric is awesome, the paper is awesome, the bits and bobs are awesome. I had never seen a flowish journal but that was so fun to open! I will use probably literally everything in here. It also smells really nice? Lol. Anyway this was very generous and thoughtful, I really really appreciate that you put together something so nice.
Response: So glad you liked it.
Comment: I love it!

Thanks for your zine, Barb!! No worries on timing--I think I lost our message thread somewhere and never answered one of your messages! Sorry about that! I see you're hosting your own zine swap now, though. That's awesome! I hope you're enjoying making them. :)
