About Me

I'm not a moron, I'm actually quite educated. The name was given to me by a creative mind while we were playing with words. His idea was saying I was a good-looking oxymoron. (Also, my hair is the color of a red fox.) I do suppose I could have written it out differently, but hindsight and blah blah blah....

Anyways:

I love life!

I thoroughly enjoy everything about zines.

I love humor and anything DIY.

Feel free to send me anything to put into the zines I am creating.

I am a redheaded bartender, a zinester, a leisure bicycle rider, vegetable and flower gardener, a gun toter, DIYer, crafter, alternative art lover, a nighttime stoner, a booze enjoying, caffeinated, adventure loving, music junkie. I'm not afraid to admit to who I am and I am not afraid to be myself.

I'm a booze slinger, the liquor is my weapon and the bottle shows my method.

Don't be scared, just be yourself.

I just started a new group, check it out: Mail Art & Add n' Pass

Favorite Music

Satan's Teardrops, Kings of Nuthin', Los Gatos Locos, Mad Sin, The Meteors, Hillbilly Hellcats, Barnyard Ballers, Al Foul, Atom and his Package, The Bloodhound Gang, The Misfits, The Shods, Mad Caddies, William Elliott Whitmore, Hasil Adkins, The Black Keys, The Gorillaz, Bomani D'Mite Armah, Frank Morey and His Band, Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash, early Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Iggy pop, David Bowie, The Ramones, Naked Aggression, The Vandals, The Fratellis, Arctic Monkeys

...this list can go on and on.

Favorite Books

Just about anything by Chuck Palahnuik and David Sedaris.

A Clockwork Orange, Water for Elephants, Crooked Little Vein, The Raw Shark Texts, Dirty Job, The Good Thief, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,

Big Ass Book of Crafts!

Favorite Movies

Cry Baby, Cool Hand Luke, Clockwork Orange, Naked Lunch, Waking Life, Forbidden Zone, Street Trash, Natural Born Killers, Half Baked, Cecil B. Demented, Fido, Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus

I am a John Waters fan.

Favorite Television

Favorite Crafts

Transforming t-shirts and other wearables to fit my personality.

Just about anything and everything! Glass etching, making my own earrings, cooking, making my own booze, making pins, magnets, doodling, hand sewing things, zines

I have a crafter crush on Mark Montano!

Private Swaps

I am always interested in doing private swaps.

I would like to stick to more of the postcard/mail art side of Swap-bot instead of doing many swaps with big packages or email swaps. (Type 2's instead of Types 1 or 3's) Let's keep the postage down and the creativity up!

WOULD LOVE TO SWAP ZINES!

Not Really Into:

I will always appreciate what shows up for a swap with me! I am so easy to please, it's just silly. :-)

To help guide you, I thought I would just give you a quick list of things I am not so into. Save these things for swaps with others, no need to waste it on me:

Anything religious, holiday, or girly girl. Hello Kitty, The Japanese cutesy stuff, Not really into anything cutesy, though I love animals, you could probably leave most of them out of swaps (though I love Crows/Ravens, squirrels, chipmunks, and honey bees.), I'm not usually into pink things, though I am not against the color.

One last thing...

The more gritty, hardcore, obscene, out of boundaries, against the grain, it is, I'll probably like it. Graffiti and recycled items are awesome.

I love learning new DIY, homestead, frugal, green, punk tips. If you have any, or any reading suggestions.

As far as Postcards (amongst other things) go: I love the wacky the ones!, pin-up girls, retro styles, beauty and the obscene, zombie related things, the darker side of life, skulls and sugar skulls, Day of the Dead stuff, checkered things, comical lightning bolts, psychodelic styles can be cool, social commentary, and humor. Things that make you go, "Huh?" or "WTF?" are always good too.

Make me laugh and that's an automatic heart! :-)

Searching For: *The right apron! I collect vintage and sexy aprons. *A funky/cool Tablecloth (roughly 45" square) *I am starting a new job where I need to wear more grown-up jewelry and I don't have any! I can't wear my skulls and lightning bolts there, but I still want to reflect my edgy style.

Grumpy Swappers:

LIGHTEN UP! Swap-bot is supposed to be fun.

I always send right away, I follow directions closely, and I read everyone's profile before swapping. Some people just seem grumpy and it makes for a less enjoyable swapping experience because I am afraid to do anything more or different because you may rate me less.

I don't want to swap in fear of a lower rating because you have a hair across your ass about my name, or that you don't like my goofy humor or the way I sign my name.

I'm here to send out fun mail-ables and maybe make someone smile. So, if there is ever an issue, please let me know and I will do everything in my power to make it better and then the best!

Comment: Sorry this rating is coming so late. I didn't have internet everyday this summer so I had a hard time rating regularly. Didn't want you to go unrated though, even if it's late..I did want to let you know that I loved your card and I thank you very much for being a good swap partner. Hope all is well and that you have a great Thanksgiving!

Comment: What did you use to make the raindrops on the picture of the umbrella? This card made me smile as it was raining while I picked it up and I had no umbrella. At first I thought the raindrops were real from the rain raining on me. :) Thanks!
Response: Lol, it is glossy accents. I love that stuff!

Comment: YES!! I was so excited to see that you got my name for this swap. You are awesome and we've swapped before. I love the postcard about getting off your ass - I also really like the black and white one of the young man with the hat. Oh yeah! And the one of the little girl at the dentist... and the one of the old people flashing their skivvies. Well... I just love all of them. :) THANK YOU!
Response: I am so glad that you like them! I remember & enjoyed swapping with you! :-)

germangirl65 on Sep 3, 2011:

I just received your letter with the stamps for the "Food Postcard"...again, so totally not necessary. I'm sorry you felt you needed to do that...some swappers can be so ridiculous. You're a doll and it was a lovely swap idea :) Thanks!
