About Me

Free Cat Hair With Every Swap!

My boyfriend @badxhampill just joined Swap-Bot to practice some art, probably because I won't shut up about how great this community is. It's been cleared with site administrators, so don't freak out if you see some dude named Chris with my same address.

I do market research professionally, and Swap-Bot is a great creative outlet for me! I love to make ATCs and decos when I have the time, and try all kinds of new crafts. I am vegetarian and a huge nerd. I am crazy about the sport of jugger, which I very much recommend checking out. I have two kitties who are my babies.

mah kittehs

PM me if you want to do a private swap, need a new (sometimes slow AF) penpal, want excess decos (I usually have some), or want to ask me about jugger! :)

My top wishlist thing right now is house/home themed ATCs, especially mixed media. I want to get enough to do a 3x3 or bigger display for my office.

Swap Philosophy

I always try to go above and beyond in my swaps and aim for hearts. If you feel that I don't deserve a heart, I would genuinely like to know why. Even if it's negative feedback I want to improve my art and swapping. It drives me crazy to do what I think is a really nice job and feel like I've disappointed my partner!

I normally read profiles carefully and tailor swaps to my swap partners' preferences to the extent possible. I don't generally join swaps with tight deadlines, because I hate feeling rushed and I like doing art when I'm really in the mood for it. So I will try and do a nice job on your swap, and base it on your profile if I can, but it won't usually be sitting there all generically waiting to mail as soon as partners are assigned. Please let me know if something doesn't arrive. I will resend lost or missing swaps.

I don't think anyone should host swaps they aren't willing to angel themselves. If hosts are expected to cover for flakers, they will do a better job screening them out. I hate to see situations where hosts ask for angels (or worse, the individual flaked on has to ask themselves) when it's the host's poor screening that caused the problem. I cringe every times I see a swap host saying they won't angel. Don't host if you won't angel! I will ALWAYS angel my hosted swaps. With that in mind, I am picky about screening people for my hosted swaps. I am usually willing to do private swaps with riskier people, but don't want to assume that risk for others in my swaps. I appreciate being notified if you see questionable swappers in my hosted swaps, but rest assured I will carefully look at all participants and ban anyone I find too risky, normally immediately before assigning partners.

Good ATCs
Interesting ephemera/smash stuff
Jugger (best sport ever. Google it.)
Magic: the Gathering
Mix CDs
Pokemon Go (Team Valor & Blissey is the best Pokemon!)

Stuff I don't like

Animal cruelty
Excessive use of stickers
Religion - unless it's ironic or Chick Tracts, I love those for terrible reasons!

Regarding Deco Books

I don't mind getting homers/last page decos unless it's contrary to swap requirements.

I've been getting a lot of decos recently in which I've already done a page. This is generally against deco swap guidelines, and is contrary to the point of deco books. Decos should have each page done by a different person, and sending them back and forth between the same people is a waste of postage! PLEASE check your decos and make sure the recipient hasn't done a page in them yet before sending!

I'd prefer not to receive decos that aren't in some kind of book form. Loose pages are a nice idea, but to me that's not really the same as a deco book. Plus it's difficult or impossible to determine who has already had it when "pages" go missing.

I often have excess decos to swap. Please send me a PM with your address if you are interested.

I'm happy to try and answer questions if you are new to decos (or swapping generally). I've been here a while and can usually help with basic protocol questions!

Themes I like

Anything hand drawn
Arizona themed
Dr. Pepper
House/home theme
Magic: the Gathering
Monograms/my initials (E.W.)
Penis drawings (they crack me up, it's "accidentally" become a collection). No peen photographs though please!
Pokemon (esp. Blissey/Chancey, Magikarp, Hitmonchan)

If it's a pretty, well done ATC, PC, or deco I will probably love it no matter what the subject matter is. I am difficult to offend unless its related to animal cruelty or some kind of discrimination. That shit's not funny. I am generally amused by adult/sexual/nudity/swear word type themes. Particularly wieners. XD

mermaidery rated for FS: Data Selfie ATC on Sep 12, 2018
Comment: We have a lot of the symbols. I love how you did your ATC. it inspired me to redo mine on something other than the white paper I used. I used a book page and love the result. Thank you for the second ATC, as well. I love it!
Response: oh nice! A book page is a great idea! Love to see how that turned out. Also I just noticed I hadn't followed your instagram yet... going to do that now! :P Glad you like the ATC.
Comment: WOW. I don't even know where to start. You know I love your artistic stuff and am blown away by the pieces that I now own. You're so creative in addition to being an absolute sweetheart. I was kind of amazed it made it to me because my address was torn off in the middle. I'll have to send you a picture of it. I guess I'm well known to the post office so they knew where to take it. :D Love you. xo♥
Response: OMG! I'd be curious to see the picture... I think I'd used clear tape on that envelope so it would be protected, I wonder what happened to it. O.o I'm SO glad it made it to you and that you like the ATCs.

Comment: Ty for the amazing swap I received today! The atcs were very cute don't mind getting the same style at all and if we ever swap again and you've premade just send it. I wouldn't have been upset with an owl since it was mentioned in the swap and I chose to join it anyway. And the extras LOVED them especially the oddish! Thanks again for the great swap.
Response: Really glad you liked them! :)
Comment: Beautiful card! Love the hello print background! You’ve inspired to get my gelli plate out & play more!

fluffyjunk rated for Totally Inappropriate "B" ATC on Jul 17, 2018
Comment: Oh, I SO hoped I would get the hairy balls!!! They look so.... well proportioned... :D Thank you very much! I am not sure what you had in mind when you made the "tasteful" boner-ATC. I am absolutely not sure... O_O But I love it! :D And I am so happy about the paper pieces! Did you made them with a gelli plate? They look fantastic! My first gelli plat experiements failed completely. I think I have to watch some video tutorials.... Thanks for this amazing swap! :)
Response: Haha glad you like them! There are really good video tutorials for gelli plates... I've had great success with that! ETA I was thinking about this, and I realized "tasteful" in that context might be a USA colloquialism! Just means "classy" or "appropriate" so... trying to be ironic. That totally might not have come across! LOL
fluffyjunk rated for Totally Inappropriate "A" ATC on Jul 15, 2018
Comment: BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! I LOVE your As! The all-over-boner one looks so cool.... And the extra butthole-flower one is... Well... I laughed tears when I saw it and as soon as you receive my mail, you will know why. :D Just fantastic...! Thank you for those ATCs and the super cute sticker-extras!!!
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you like them! Pretty entertaining to make. XD
