About Me

I promise to ALWAYS rate. Also, If anything comes postage due to you, please let me know and I will fix. I often look at profiles and try my best to fit the swap to you!

Originally from New Hampshire, I now live just North of Austin, Texas with my husband, teenager (in college) and two cats (Mitzi and Homer).

If you would like to have a private swap contact me!

Favorite Crafts

I'm currently focused on ATCs, smash books, photography, drawing, painting, linoleum printing, crochet, leather and chainmaille (the metal rings, not the annoying letters).

I do get board and love learning new things, so if you have a craft you love, tell me about it and maybe I'll give it a try.

Favorite Music

Goth (70-80s), Electronica/Dance, Classic Punk (70s-80s), Global, but I'm pretty eclectic!

Some favorite bands of mine are: Royksopp, Dead Can Dance, Bauhaus, Morrissey, Depeche Mode, Gary Numan, Cocteau Twins, The Cure, Sisters of Mercy, She Past Away, but there are really too many.

I spent several years working in college/community non-profit radio. :)

Favorite Books

Authors I Love: Ray Bradbury, Paulo Coehlo, Hermann Hesse, Charlaine Harris, HP Lovecraft.

Themes I Love: sci-fi, fantasy, post-apocalyptic/dystopian, futurism, steampunk, vintage/classics.

Favorite Movies

We don't have cable, so it's Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, SlingTV and antenna. That covers most of it.

Shows I like: The Handmaid's Tale, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, The Twilight Zone (original), The Originals, Sherlock (BBC), Penny Dreadful, Broadchurch, iZombie, True Blood, Sense8, Dark Mirror, Dusk 'Til Dawn, Stranger Things, American Gods, Dark Matter, The Walking Dead, Supernatural, Goid Omens, Black Mirror and I could go on and on.

Sci-Fi, fantasy and foreign films are my first choices.

Films I Like: Labyrinth, City of Lost Children, Mirrormask, Sucker Punch, Young Frankenstein, Kiki's Delivery Service, Wristcutters: A Love Story, Gattacca, Lost Boys, Repo: Genetic Opera, Mad Max, and similar.


Handmade items. I'd love to have something handmade by you if you're a crafter!

I have a small art wall with owl themed art (new and vintage).

For Tea swaps: I like anything! The more unique the better. I'm the one in the Indian, Asian and other specialty markets picking out interesting teas. Along with bagged teas I am open to loose tea, granule teas (often from China), chai packets, Thai tea packets and also coffee packets (like Vinacafe from Vietnam).

Comment: Thank you for the cute card. I like how it looks with the markers. Markers or gel pens are more vibrant the pencils. It depends on how I want the picture to look which ones I use. Sometimes even a combination .

kssunlover1947 rated for Coloring Postcard Round 2 on Oct 30, 2017
Comment: Thank you for the very colorful card that you colored and sent. Also the note you wrote. I will have to look up the Old SciFi radio from the 50's. I don't remember them but we were more involved with early TV as my dad was an engineer and moved from radio to TV in 52.
Response: Quite a few of the early radio shows moved over to TV and even had a presence on both simultaneously. I thought of you the other day when I picked up the 1952-53 Motion Picture and Television Almanac. I love old radio, TV and film.
