Hi! I'm 24 and have finished studying architecture. I had a big break from swap-bot and am keen to get back into it.
I seriously love getting mail. I have had a few pen pals over the years and have always enjoyed exchanging stories, thought and little gifts. Swap-bot seem like the perfect, no pressure, do as much as you can/want to way to enjoy snail mail.
I have been lead here via exploration of other peoples online documentation of their "Wreck This Journal" adventures. I love looking at craft on websites like pinterest and getting inspiration. My pinterest boards are located @potatosanddragons and on the one titled "I can do that too" are some examples of things I have created myself if you would like to check them out, and maybe get your own inspiration!
My flickr account linked above will definitely have spoilers so if you are expecting something from me and don't want to ruin the surprise maybe avoid it if you can...
I am interested in small crafts like ATCs and decorated envelopes. I also love postcards. I'm happy to receive most things but I adore the following: cats, German Shepards, ducks, most animal things really, the colour purple, architecture, art, things that are weird or surprising, I love ugly detailing on beautiful things and beautiful detailing on ugly things and things that are ugly and interesting or breath takingly beautiful. I also am interested in artistic composition and presentation in general.
I like things that other people find interesting with reasons why they like them.
Postcards of pretty much anything, I love boring and ugly postcards as well as beautiful ones that touch on any of the themes I have mentioned. I would love a postcard from where you live.
Hand made things like dolls or cards AND digital media like photography or digital graphic design.
TINY THINGS! Things that are miniature and ridiculous.
I have no issues with swearing, poor grammar, nudity or similar controversial content. (Although please see my Not Like section for a few places where I definitely draw the line.)
I would love to hear silly or amusing stories from peoples lives (Once I saw a girl kick a pigeon outside St Pauls in London! And inside I cried because it was so beautiful!)
I don't expect extras in my swaps but if if we are swapping ATCs and you want to include a few (2 or 3 max) empty ATC sleeves I would be so, so grateful!
I don't like things that have a discriminatory message (sexism, racism, homophobia)
I'm not huge on religious material or hello kitty either.
I have waay too much peppermint tea so I can do without any of that for a long time.
Hair clips, earrings or necklaces
I only sign up for swaps I have every intention of completing and always do my best to get them off in time. I understand that life is messy and tricky so if you are sending me anything and have an issue, let me know and I will afford you the same courtesy.
If you have any issues with receiving things from me or what you get let me know and I will do my best to fix anything I can. :)
Have a nice day and happy swapping.
