My Website

About Me

Short version: I'm a middle-aged, somewhat damaged, artistic (also autistic) nerd who enjoys good science fiction, good music, good food, and friendly critters with fewer than eight legs. It should be noted at this point that I consider the appendages on cephalopods to be arms, not legs, and as such they are exempt from this rule.

Pronouns: She / Her

Longer version: I think the most relevant bit of information for this website is that I am a collector. I differ from the standard collector in that rather than collect one specific thing, I collect collections. Postcards, matchbooks, foreign currency, buttons, fabric, toys, t-shirts... You name it, I probably have a few dozen of it carefully tucked away somewhere for future use or display. At this point you might think I'm a hoarder, and under different circumstances that might actually be the case. However, I take great care to cultivate only those things which are of genuine interest or use to me, and I like to pare down my hoard as often as possible by giving my extra things away or by participating in swaps like those listed on this website.

Shortest version: COME TRADE JUNK WITH ME!!!

Favorite Music

AFI, The Offspring, Strung Out, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, The Rebel Spell, The Phenomenauts, The Stellar Corpses

VNV Nation, KMFDM, Imperative Reaction, Left Spine Down, Rabbit Junk, Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, 3Teeth, Neuroticfish, Covenant

Amanda Palmer, Gogol Bordello, Jonathan Colton, Zoe Keating, Unwoman

Confused yet?

Favorite Books

Book-books: Anything by Lois McMaster Bujold. Most things by Neil Gaiman and Cherie Priest. Some Ursula LeGuin, some Kurt Vonnegut. Both of them turned weird when they got older.

Comics: Tank Girl, Serenity Rose, Nimona, Sandman, Persepolis... And Saga. You need to go read Saga right now. Seriously. Do it.

Favorite Television

Doctor Who, TORCHWOOD, Red Dwarf, Firefly, Farscape, Star Trek, Warehouse 13, Futurama, Archer, Sherlock, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Adventure Time, Rick and Morty, Supernatural... Yeah, okay, I said it. I'm one of the SuperWhoLock people. Don't judge me.

Artists

Alan Forbes, Frank Kozik, Tara McPherson, Megan Lara, Shepard Fairey, Banksy, Stitchmind.

Favorite Crafts

Illustration, painting, collage, sculpture, jewelry, costuming, props, clothing design... pretty much everything except charcoal, watercolor, and oils.

Comment: I am so sorry you lost the letter. I love a ton of pictures of my brother and my dog when mine died. I am crazy now and save pictures to three different places, just so it doesn't happen again!

I’m so glad the elephant made it. It was so hard getting it to fit in the mailbox. Lol. I hope u have a good day

Thank you for the gorgeous snowy roulette PC! ❄️💜 I've never been, but my FIL says it's lovely. Maybe I'll have to visit someday~

USAFwife on Jul 17, 2023:

I, too, am a SuperWhoLock person, and I see nothing wrong with that. ;) Supernatural is grossly underrepresented by the SB community, in my opinion. :) Cindi

Thank you so much. I just received the PayPal notification.

dmwcheng on Jul 16, 2021:

RE: Ugly PC swap -- I don't actually have any "ugly" postcards but I do have some that I pass over for others and in the end, become stragglers in my stock.

I love the library myself too and I actually sent you my favourite location. I just happen to have tons of those in my stock. My apologies for not explaining that when I sent you my postcard.

Cheers.

Hi! I just remembered your Postcard Roulette :) Hoping to see more of these swaps!

MuggleMom on Feb 24, 2021:

Thank you so much for the Kaylee necklace with the cool charmsl!! Love the detail you put into and I am proud to have been worthy enough to receive one of your creations!! xxMuggleMom

Hello,
Thank you for the extra postcard in the PC Roulette July 2020 swap. I am imagining the person on the postcard is screaming into it their frustrations:) I hope you do apply for the "artist in residence" at Recology. If you get it I would love to hear about your art journey...seriously do write me about it:)

eileensariot on Feb 17, 2020:

Thank you for the extra postcard in the roulette! I really like it! You were right :) I have a guilty pleasure for dark / goth/ synth / industrial music! Did you go and have fun?

myancey on Jan 27, 2018:
