"Jessica is a 28 year old geek from southern Ontario. She's fond of goblins, the colour pink and grotesque horror movies.
She hopes to one day be 80, wear cat-rimmed glasses and shoot zombies."
I strongly prefer darker themed things as a whole. Goth/geek is intermingled with me.
When sending me anything - the funkier/more different the stamps are the better - I'm a collector!
My birthstone is the sapphire, my sign is Libra and my Chinese Zodiac animal is the Rat, but I don't follow or put any faith in any of them.

Book Types I Don't Like
Romance Novels - Unless they are fantasy or supernatural based, I probably won't end up reading it. Note that this does not include historical romance as I don't think they would get read, either.
Science Fiction - While I enjoy sci-fi movies, I normally can't concentrate on them in book form.
Westerns - In book or movie form, they really don't interest me.
Mysteries - Unless supernatural or fantasy based, not for me.
Crime Drama - John Grissam, etc. just not for me.
NOTE: Please ask before basing a "profile based swap" on my favourite movies - some of these movies I absolutely adore but would not really want things based on them. Dead Birds, for example, is an awesome movie, but not something I would want around the house.

Crocheting is probably my number one most favourite craft - I'm a hooker at heart and I'm a yarn hoarder. hats, scarves, afghans, potholders - anythings.
I love scrapbooking, and scrapbooking paper. I can use scrapbooking paper for sooooooo many crafts and LOVE receiving new paper!
I love love LOVE scrapbook paper books. I make so many crafts out of them - doesn't matter the brand or where they are from - if its got a cute or funky design or picture on it, I will find a use for it.
I make miniature terrain for Dungeons and Dragons and other table top gaming.

I love theology. I have an obsession of studying various religions and cults. Catholic Dogma is fascinating to me - rosaries, the virgin mary, etc. I'm also very interested in the LDS (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints aka Mormonism), Paganism (less interested in fluff bunny Wicca), Voodoo, religion from various cultural regions in Africa, New Zealand, Hawaii, etc. Demons, Angels, heaven, hell, etc. Buddhism also holds my interest, Islam, and even Judaism. The only thing I would prefer not to recieve anything on is Protestant Christianity. As a whole.
Penpal newsletters/zines - Never gotten one before - interested in seeing what I'm missing out on.
Stickers - I keep a penpal scrapbook and write to a couple people and love getting stickers. Doesn't matter what it is - unique or original little things are awesome - but so are Sandylion or little japanese stickers as well.
Things from where you are - Stickers, postcards, cards, playing cards, things with flags or coat of arms on them - if it's something unique to where you live, I would love it.
Tea - Black tea, white tea, green tea, oolong tea, rooibos tea - I love them all. Not a fan of fruit teas - but open to pretty much anything else.
Bookmarks - I adore bookmarks and read A LOT. While store bought bookmarks are great, I also LOVE handmade bookmarks - I want to see what your creative mind can come up with.
ATC's - I'm open to private ATC swaps with base wants/desires well laid out in advance. Send me a message and we can work something out :)

Craft Supplies - Scrap book paper, buttons, string, ribbon, paint brushes, citadel paint, scrap booking stickers, brads and eyelets, scrap booking supplies in general.
Socks - In the summer I would rather be barefoot than wear shoes, but as soon as Fall/Autumn comes around I absolutely adore and am addicted to socks! I love super fuzzy ones, striped ones, ones with characters, ankle socks, knee socks, thin socks, thick socks - just funky socks in general. I would love some awesome rainbow socks - the more colourful the better! I don't know much about sizing when it comes to socks, but shoe wise I'm a size 8 1/2 - 9 in Canada/US sizing
Pen Pal Supplies - Pads of paper with various characters or designs. Can be Kawaii or not - I prefer pads with lines, but I know a lot come mixed and love them all :) Also: Stickers, Canadian stamps for use in sending, etc.
Send me something odd and bizarre - I'll probably love it. I like really morbid things sometimes - For example: I collect vintage "death" photography (cabinet photographs from the 1800's of beloved family members who have passed away). Honestly, if you think it may be too odd for me - it probably won't be. Just don't send me like...poo. Cause...well that's gross.
THINGS I GIVE HEARTS FOR
If you send extra's, it does not guarantee you a heart.
First and foremost, a heart is earned when someone sends me an extra special swap package that far exceeds the swap requirements.
I find that people who actually read my profile have a way better chance than those who don't.
Handwritten things are awesome. It shows you put time and effort into the package.
Happy swapping :)
Herein contains a list of the various crafts I enjoy doing and can do well, if you ever want to do a private swap with me:
