2010/10/30 - Hey guys, sorry I've been MIA for awhile. I'm needing to take a break from swaps due to some life issues. I don't have any swaps outstanding, but there were some gifts I was wanting to give people and did not get around to, and for that I apologise. When life gets better again, I'll jump back into the swapping circuit.
2010/05/29 - My braces are off! How exciting! And I passed my school exam, which means I'll be graduating soon (Hooray!) Two last obstacles; I have to write my licensing exam (it's an all-day exam that I paid HUNDREDS of dollars for, it's pretty intense) and I have to move across the country (eek!)....Hoping I get through the next few weeks with my nerves intact :)
2010/05/06 - I hosted a random envie give-away on FB & Penpal Swappers. Four lucky people have come forward to claim envies, and I've got them all stuffed and ready to go. I'll probably hit the post office on Monday.
2010/04/23 - Profile overhaul completed!
Am moving across the country this summer, so I am finishing up the swaps I am in and then going on hiatus until after I move.
25 year old Canadian vegan queer girl with a penchant for postcards, postage stamps, art trading cards, friendship books, slambooks, and other miscellany. I love to swap flat things I can cram into an envelope.
If you are making me a friendship book, deco book, slambook, label bag, etc, please use my parent's address instead of my own on the book itself. I will PM their address to you when partners are assigned (do feel free to remind me if I forget!) The reason for the different address on the book is that these books travel for years and my parent's address is likely to be more permanent than my college address. Thanks!
Other FB stuff: Since I swap them, you can always feel free to tuck one into a swap for me, even if the swap is unrelated to FBs. I generally prefer neat and tidy FBs, but the only ones I'm really not into are Mom-only and USA-only.
ATCs, handmade bookmarks, postcards (storebought or handmade), zentangles, vegan recipes, inchies, friendship books, deco books, slambooks, label or sticker bags, letters, tea, stickers, postage stamps, coins (I can send Canadian or American coins and would love coins from anywhere else), 1"buttons, zines, fortune cookie fortunes.
Sometimes I do electronic swaps if they look interesting and I don't have to swap with a million people.
I am on the hunt for mango flavoured green tea. I will love you if you send me some.
Maybe you can help me?
I am making a vegan mail art cookbook!
I have a photo album that holds photos that are 4 inches x 6 inches. I am slowly filling it with vegan recipes on decorated cards that people mail me from around the world.
So, if you'd like to take a 4x6 inch card, transcribe a vegan recipe recipe you like onto it and decorate the same side of the card (since the underside of the card won't be visible in the album), I would really love that.
In exchange, you can choose one of the following for each card you send me:
A 4x6 inch vegan recipe card (Maybe you'd like to start your own cookbook?)
A postcard, either store-bought or handmade. I can send stamped and written, or in an envelope either written or not. Let me know :)
2 Art Trading Cards
A high quality FB made just for you
A high quality deco or slam made just for you
A small profile surprise
Something contributed for your own mail art or zine project. Let me know if you are taking submissions for anything?
Anything by Douglas Adams, Kurt Vonnegut, Terry Pratchett, David Sedaris, Neil Gaiman, Harry Harrison, Sarah Waters, and Edward Gorey.
I don't expect you to send me books (unless you really really want to), but if you have a similar taste in books, you can certainly incorporate quotes or themes into swaps if you like. I'm sure to love anything related to Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy :)
I'm soooo not picky, and I love surprises, but if you want to try to tailor a swap to things I really love, here is the Great Big List of Stuff I Love.
Animals: Cats, dogs, platypi, red pandas, armadillos, beavers, raccoons, squirrels, owls, blue herons, fish, rabbits, frogs, pigs, ducks, butterflies, dragonflies, bumblebees, grasshoppers.
I am utterly fascinated by flying fish, giant squid, and any of the weird sightless and/or glowing and/or spiny things that can be found on the ocean floor or in underwater caves.
Patterns: Plaid, argyle, polka dots, stripes
Colours: I love all colours.
Video games: I'm all about the old school games, especially Dragon Warrior, Donkey Kong, PacMan, and Super Mario.
Cartoon characters: Sanrio, Peanuts, Moomin, Domo-Kun, Miffy, Smurfs, Popples, Carebears
Anything to do with veganism, queer rights, feminism, etc.
I like stationary, notepaper, hair clips for short hair, stickers, rubber stamps, postage stamps, etc.
Nature, matryoshkas (Russian stacking dolls), cupcakes, maps, science, retro stuff, kawaii stuff, nerdy stuff, Anne Taintor, Edward Gorey, things from Croatia, Japan, Korea, Israel, Russia...
Science: Microbiology, anatomy, histology, parasitology, anything medical
I adore folk music, indie rock, and melodic (non-screamy) punk music. I love beautiful songs or songs that make me laugh.
Postcards: Viewcards, animal photography, map cards, vintage cards, funny cards, strange cards, art cards, handmade cards
Pocket protectors: I collect them. Honest.
Tea: Oh god I love tea. My favourites are mint, lemon, mango, vanilla black tea, earl grey, canadian breakfast, english breakfast, lemon-ginger, and black currant. I'll try any tea once.
My partner loves the Toronto Maple Leafs, hockey, elephants, cows, indie rock, cooking, baking, drawing, painting, cats, lolcats, candy, movies, Kurt Vonnegut, and classy neckties.
I love to read zines, but I consistently fail epically at making them myself. So, I'll swap for them, but may have to send you something else in exchange.
Zines I like include: vegan recipe zines, queer zines, perzines, zines about hitchhiking, mail art, medical school, science, humour, Food Not Bombs, homelessness, people's lives in general...I like a zine I can sink my teeth into. I love reading about people's lives. I like art zines, too.
The zines I dislike are the ones consisting mostly of photocopied magazine collages which don't photocopy very well at all, and I'm not usually a fan of poetry zines, but if you've got a good one, try me; I'll give it a chance.
A severed head.
Or anything that once had a head. Or anything that came from anything that had a head.
So please, no feather, no leather, no food/cosmetics/recipes that contain egg, dairy, meat or gelatin. Nothing with fur or shell or bone.
Also, don't send me: Mom FBs, marriage proposals, or religious tracts unless they are Chick tracts (which are freaking hilarious).
