I am a person new to swap-bot who loves to craft, collect paint swatches, watch documentaries, and play board games! My favorite game to play at the moment is Ticket To Ride where you try to build more train routes than your opponent. I have only ridden on real trains a few times in my life, and I thought it was so fun! I hope to one day ride in a hot air balloon!
Other little facts about me:
(Feel free to use any of this to inspire what mail you send me, or send me something entirely different that YOU think is cool! I look forward to it.)
I love learning about different cultures.
My favorite color is red.
Hilda, the clumsy pinup girl, always makes me laugh. I love vintage pinup in general, actually.
My favorite animals are SLOTHS, orcas, seahorses, and manatees. I have never seen any of these in person before, but I sure love learning about them!
I love looking at beautiful art.
I love learning about science, specifically geology and biology. (Dinosaurs, mammoths, fossils, beautiful land formations, flowers)
I don't know how to cook.
I love to travel both in the US and around the world. (Tell me about your favorite place you've been? That'd be interesting!)
I get excited about all types of postcards!
I love collages and drawings and paintings and stamps and washi tapes and fun envelopes and doodles and everything in between! Artistic things just really make me happy. That's why I'm joining swap-bot! I want to make and send artsy mail.
I am an environmentalist.
I love lacy things, like ribbon!
I love mermaids and fairies and whimsical things.
I don't know anything about gardening correctly, but I sure love flowers! (I'd love to receive seeds, pressed flowers, and floral ATCs!)
I went to a TEDx event which was super cool. (Tell me your own idea worth sharing?)
Controversial things: I think pineapple belongs on pizza. I hate cats.
Reminder: once you receive mail, please rate the sender right away. I've noticed that /lots/ of people don't rate (even if your partner is the host!), which is sad.

I just recently discovered artist trading cards (ATCs), and I love them! Making tiny works of art is so fun! Unfortunately, most ATC swaps and ATC groups are for veteran type-3ers only, so instead, I've been creating them for myself and my friends.
I'm still experimenting with different techniques, but I am trying to find my own style rather than just copying the popular ones I see on YouTube. Right now, I'm a big fan of finger painting my cards. That's probably because the medium I am most comfortable with is chalk pastels that I use my fingers for.
If I do manage to qualify for an ATC swap on here (horray!), I hope you have fun creating something for me. I'm excited to see your personal artistic flair.
