About Me

Free Cat Hair With Every Swap!

I do market research professionally, and Swap-Bot is a great creative outlet for me! I love to make ATCs, gelli print, and do decos when I have the time, and try all kinds of new crafts. I am vegetarian and a huge nerd. I have two kitties who are my babies.

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

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.

Stuff I like

Bright/neon colors
Buttons & brads
Easy vegetarian recipes
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 actually prefer homer/last page decos to keep my pile manageable, 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
Data / Graphs / Spreadsheets
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

Comment: Hi there Emma. Thanks for the sweet decos. Both of your pages were great.....really loved the zentangle one. Thanks for the stickers too.
Comment: This girl was so helpful to me the past couple weeks since I am new and the deco swap was perfect plus the extras!
Comment: This swap was an absolute DELIGHT. I received a gorgeous colored pencil / gelli print drawing as the "official" (required) ATC.... AND... a second beautifully collaged ATC... AND... two sheets of stickers.... AND... the kindest and most affirming note (with references to my profile. I always love to know someone took the time to go there). All in a beautiful belli-printed envelope. I wish we could give multiple hearts. THANK YOU so much!
Response: I'm so happy you liked it all! Thanks so much for your kind words, really made my day. :)
