About Me

2019 has been a year of change for me! I have moved into a new house, and gotten a new job, so I missed out on swapping for quite a while. I would love for my new mailbox to fill up with more fun mail though! And I would love to send out some of the fun things I buy and gather specifically for swapping.

I have lived in the midwest almost my whole life and been in the Saint Louis area for the most part, with a brief detour to Portland Oregon. I'd love to get out, so seeing the postcard swaps definitely interested me, seeing new a different places! I am an animal person! At one point though my family had a bunch of animals at once including, dog, cats, fish, lizards, and mice! Right now I have 2 dogs and a cat.

I have some funky style mixed with prep and professional. I really work out some of my funk and fun with my jewelry. I might be wearing a business suit but still have bright pink huge dangly earrings on too.

I love colour! Pinks, Purples, Greens, Blues, even Yellows! And have been getting into Kawaii style jewelry and style. I get inspiration from colour and my nature and the environment. Definitely still an outdoor tomboy by nature but with a city edge.

Favorites!

Combining it into one

Music: Matchbox Twenty (Rob Thomas), Everclear, Motion City Soundtrack, Say Anything are my tops. Others include, Meatloaf, Hanson, anything with Jack White (White Stripes, Raconteurs, Dead Weather), The Academy Is..., The Killers. Basically lots of pop/punk and adult alternative.

Movies: I like independent films and older romantic comedies and anything with Johnny Depp or Vincent D'onofrio. Some of my top faves are, Ghost, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, Sweeney Todd, Benny and Joon, Elizabethtown, When Harry Met Sally, You've Got Mail. But I am pretty much open to watching anything.

Books: I am a big reader, still read a lot of young adult/teen fiction. But some of the new stuff is pretty trashy so I am moving up. My favorite book of all time is a y/a novel called Rats Saw God by Rob Thomas. I adore Madeleine L'engel, and am still working on getting all her titles. I also really enjoy, Christopher Moore, Chuck Klosterman, Cassandra Clare, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Lisa Gardner, David Sedaris, and Tim Dorsey. Lots of fantasy, fiction, and weird characters. I also really like the Roger Hargreaves illustration with Mr. Men and Little Miss stuff, it is soo cute. I remember them as a kid and am glad they are making a comeback!

TV: Law and Order CI (as long as Vincent D'onofrio is in the episode), Gilmore Girls, Nip/Tuck, Heroes, How I Met Your Mother, The Office, Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job, King of the Hill, Ugly Americans, South Park

Wishlist!

Postcards: I love all types, and especially weirder ones. If you have one in your collection that you have never sent because you thought no one would like it, send it to me, naked and written on please! I will gladly add it to my collection.

Anything crafty! I do love my ceramics, but I have done lots of other things with my hands; embroidery, latch hook, painting, drawing. I am willing to learn new crafts as well.

Jewelry! I love it all, from the classy to the funky. The only thing is I don't look particularly good in gold colours. I love earrings most of all, but am trying to build up to having more necklaces, rings, and bracelets.

Pigs!! I have a totally huge pig collection and am always looking for fun interesting ones to add to it!

Dogs! I love my little pups, so anything dog related is totally welcome. She is a cocker spaniel, so not so little, about 20-25 pounds or so and completely blonde with big brown eyes. She looks almost as good as me in the colour pink. She loves treats, but nothing that is too hard on her teeth. Balls that bounce and stuffed animals are her best friends! I also have what I think is a Carolina Dog, but may be a big mutt named Lola. She chews constantly!! so anything to help with that is appreciated :) She really likes ropes. We prefer not to get poo bags or holders because we don't use them, they have a large back yard to run around in. I also have a little kitty named Kiki who is still a baby and very playful . She really likes anything she can eat and feather toys.

Makeup! like jewelry another way I add a lot of punch to my style is through makeup. Bright shadows, glossy lips, glowing nail polish! It all works for me.

Candles, I am constantly burning them. Especially little tea lites, we also like the false tealites.

New music! I've worn out a lot of mine and need to find and listen to more. I'm open to lots of styles.

Anything inspiring! A beautiful photo, an inspirational message, anything that can help add to my art making and attitude! Also stuff that I can use to make textures on my pieces, this can literally be anything.

I also love Kawaii and Stickers and Lisa Frank! Really no specifics for Kawaii, I like it all. but if I had to pick favorites I would say Piggy Girl and a lot of Q-Lia are some of my faves. Also really loving Rilakkuma meets honey, and Lemons. Animal related Kawaii are probably the best. I trade and swap stickers so any kind will do.

Socks! Any type and colour, I love fun ones. But I do not like knee socks, they don't fit on my calves so well. So ankle socks please.

Noticed that some swaps may have sweets involved. While I do eat chocolate and enjoy it, I like fruity and sour candy much more! Things like Bottlecaps, Sweet Tarts, Warheads, Airheads, Nerds, etc. are great! Also love peanut butter, caramel, and cheese lol. I am NOT allergic to anything, but hate anything with even a little bit of spice. Not much of a tea drinker either, but love some cocoa.

Flake List

Sorry that this had to be added, but it happens, so far only been flaked twice, both times by the coordinators of the swap!
