About Me

7/3/14-ok so I've finally gotten all of my overdue swaps off my dash board. I have a 1 rating that I'm working to resolve right now and hopefully, once that's resolved, I'll get back into the groups that had to remove me and begin to stay swapping again. I know that there have been people on here that have used illness as an excuse to flake on people but in my case, shit happened & all I can do now is hopefully show people that I'm truly sorry I disappointed them. My Name's Desirae but I'm always Dez for short. I'm a disabled stay at home mom who got back into crafting things to keep dexterity in my hands. I've got multiple sclerosis & I was diagnosed in '09. It was a very rough time for me but I like to think I rose from the ashes of what wasn't a very good situation to become a whole new woman like a phoenix reborn. I've got 3 beautiful girls from 1 -10 years old who are the reason I breathe. I'm in a committed relationship with the love of my life & rounding out my happy little family is my chiweenie mix Sasha. I'm a big kid at heart. I used to go to raves & was a big kandy kid so I still love all things bright, fun happy and KAWAII!!! Anyways I don't really know what else to write so if you have any questions, just ask!! I have been a member of Listia for over 2 years with over 200 transactions and a 100% positive rating. I'm also a member of Ebay and have only positive reviews there as well. I took a break from both last year when I gave birth to my youngest daughter because she was a preemie who spent a few months in the hospital.

Favorite Music

I like pretty much anything. I love old school punk(Subhumans, op ivy, The Misfits, crass, The Distillers, Bad Religion, NOFX) & very much consider myself a punk rock girl. I like old country and some new country-it's all my hubby's fault, you get to liking country when your sig. other sings you cheezie love songs lol I like some old electronic music-house, hardcore, happy hardcore, dnb...I like some new artists like DJ Figure. My Chemical Romance, afi...you name it I probably like it...I was raised on a steady diet of Marty Robbins, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Led Zepplin, Fleetwood Mac & Lynard Skynard. I'm easy to please I think 2 of my new favorite bands are Spinnerette and The Band Perry.

Favorite Books

Pretty much anything by Stephen King. Anne Rice, Poppy Z. Brite, Bentley Little & Max Brooks. I like The Walking Dead graphic novels, The Rise of The Governor, The Road to Woodbury & I can't wait until they release the 2nd half of The Fall of The Governor. The Zombie Survival Guide & World War Z are like my bible, I've re-read them so many times I know them backwards and forwards. The Claiming of Sleeeping Beauty, Beauty's Punishment, Beauty's Release. I like John Skipp and Craig Spector, -mystery, supernatural, zombies etc...I also read The Dork Diary & Diary of a Wimpy Kid series and some other stuff my daughter got me into ;) Young at heart!! I like Flowers in the Attic series but really only the originals, after she passed they got kind of mushy. I love The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. I love Lewis Carrol-Alice in Wonderland, Alice thru the Looking Glass and What She Found There. There's a series of zombie books The Rot & Ruin, Dust & Decay. I like Friedrich Nietzsche & HP Lovecraft.

Favorite Crafts

  • Beading work! I love beading! I work mainly with big hole or acrylic beads because my hands aren't that good.
  • Drawing-painting/sculpting. My daughters paint & sculpt so I do a little of that with them.
  • Scrapbooking We love to scrapbook and make collages together. I've lately started a ribbon collection b/c I've found it's awesome when you need a border for a scrapbook or an embellishment.
  • Embellishment I've also lately gotten into embellishments so anything with cabochons or rhinestones...I've embellished my laptop cover (which my hubby hates lol) and my daughter's ds case (which they love)
  • I love old victorian cameos and photos, I like the momento mori photos (photographs of the dead) and have a whole collage dedicated to the images I've found online.
  • I love paper dolls and coloring pages, I have tons of coloring books, I'm kind of a big kid. I've always admired people who can draw but I've never been much of a "sketch" it kind of girl so coloring books help me get my artistic side out without having to draw it myself lol.
  • I love horror based graphic novels and the images from graphic novels.
  • I love hr giger, zdzislaw beksinski & Mark Ryden

Favorite Television

Family Guy, American dad, My Little ponies-Friendship is magic and Equestria Girls, Pretty much anything from Adult Swim, The Walking Dead, Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, pretty much any cartoon-kid at heart...The IT crowd. I don't watch a lot of contemporary sitcoms but let me find some old Monthy Python or Kids in the Hall or 3 stooges and I'm good-can you sense a theme there?! lol- I love the Twilight Zone and The Night Gallery which is another show Rod Serling did. I like Tales From the Crypt (The movies and TV show) and The Outer Limits and The X files.I like Law & Order (&SVU/CI as well)

Collectibles

I'm a big journaler so I love all kinds of journals all shapes and sizes. I collect pens and Garbage pail kid cards. I love anything zombie/horror realted. I've got a bit of a dark side and had worked on a series of serial killer collector cards with one of my friends. I guess one way I've gotten over my fear of death is to embrace the darker sides of it fully. I love anything related to the 20s-30s or old fashioned things. I love steam punk things of course. I took apart an old alarm clock to get the gears out of it to put into one of my scrap books. I love dolls of any shape and form but I especially like creepy dolls, the creepier the better. I collect monster high dolls and I love anything related to dias de la muerto. I really like kawaii and anything cute like that. My daughters and I found some kawaii stuff at walmart of all places called soso happy but they discontinued it :( I'm not a big tea drinker unless it's a big ol glass of sweet ice tea (Southern Girl born and raised, I even say Y'ALL lol) but I LOVE coffee and hot cocoa. I Love STICKERS!! There's a show called Incredible Crew here in the States and there's a little girl who sings a song and it basically goes "Stickers, stickers I like stickers yes I do. Stickers, Stickers I like Stickers more than YOU!!" and I love STICKERS!! I probably have over 10,000 Linda Frank stickers and at least 1,000 Hello Kitty stickers.

Kawaii type stuff

Updated 2/28/14 I've just recently discovered mamegoma & the little earth colored hamster from San-x & I LOVE THEM!!! * I'm obsessed with Sentimental Circus. It is just really sweet and carries good memories for me. I travelled with the carnival when I was younger * I purchase a lot of kawaii from taiwan, it's not 'brand' kawaii but it's cute and I can usually find larger nicer memo pads for a little less expensive. I keep brand stuff but when I send out trades I usually always include some from Taiwan or Korea. * I love Alice's Silhouette or the cute little fairy tale type designs. * I actually prefer some Crux & Kamio designs to most Sanrio. * I do have 3 favorite Sanrio/San-x characters & it's Kuromi, Keroppi & Shappo, the ringleader from Sentimental Circus. * If you're interested in doing a trade of kawaii that's not Sanrio/Crux/Mindwave/Kamio Let me know! I LOVE finding different brands of Kawaii from different countries. For me it's not so much about the brand but about the cuteness or the message. * Pretty much any kawaii makes me happy!!

Comment: I'm finally rating for this swap nearly 3 months after it was due. I only received a bit of small note paper when the swap called for at least 4 different types of HK items. I messaged you about this and you promised to send the rest, but I've received nothing. I'd be happy to change my rating if I ever receive the rest of this swap.
Response: Hello! I am resending as of 08/29. I apologize for the delay...

Comment: Thank you for the cute memos and stickers you sent for this swap. I won't rate you down for it on this particular swap, but I did want to advise that if you are going to be late sending a swap, communicate with your partner to let them know. Many people will overlook a day or two being late, but when you are more than a week late sending a swap- you are taking your chances on potentially getting rated a 3 for sending late with no communication. I just wanted to offer this as advice :) Thanks again for the items you sent.

Comment: Thank you so much for the kawaii swap; I finally received it! I'm giving a 3 rating as it was over 1.5 months, and you only me know once 2 weeks after the deadline. I totally understand life happens, and I truly hope that you're feeling better.
Response: Hello! I wanted to respond to this that I mailed the original swap on the date I listed but I misread the address & didn't properly mail it as an international package which meant it was returned in the mail. I was then very ill for a few weeks and was unable to mail any items but I did resend the item on 6/30/14 when I was getting all of my late swaps caught up. Thanks!!

Comment: I understand you had some health issues which is the reason for the late send for this swap and why I wasn't notified ahead of time. I received the letter sets and know you have included many extra ones. I appreciate it. The selection was not great but since it's senders' choice, I didn't rate you down. I hope you will feel better soon!
Response: Awww I actually really like the sets I send. You get so many repeats some time, I like to think the ones I send are unusual. Sorry if you didn't like them but I try to send things I don't think other people send. & I do apologize for not contacting you sooner, I do appreciate you not rating me lower since I was late. That's very understanding...

Comment: 6/19-This swap is from March, way before she was hospitalized, and was to be sent by April 21st. That is why I am leaving this rating up until I finally receive something.

Comment: Thank you for the resend. It did technically meet the requirments, and you did resend, so I'm not going to rate you down. However, a lot of it was still manga/anime which is on my dislike list and I feel that you still need to work on sending your kawaii inside a card or pieces of cardboard so they won't be damaged in the mail. **Most of all I hope you won't hold this against me when you receive my swap I just sent you and that you will rate me fairly.**
Response: Noted! And since this comment I've really been working on both points...& I'm not petty, I don't mind criticism as long as it's constructive ;)
