  • Married no kids. Forever awkward, creative, silly, and using humor as a deflection for real life mental health issues.
  • Not picky or easily offended, so feel free to introduce me to something new.
  • Strive to make you laugh and feel great even if just for a moment. I'm an oddball and tend to think outside the box. If I get it wrong please let me know so I can fix it.
  • Scottish terrier lover and pet rescue supporter. Especially black cats and dogs, they often get overlooked. No pets of my own currently:(


  • Mail art, flat stickers, postcards(handmade ok), labels, address labels, postage stamps, postalettes, and washi samples.
  • Anything handmade or decorated by you. Atc, pocket letter, inchies, flip books, stuffies, pins, really anything.
  • Lists, jokes, poems, haiku, limericks.
  • Instapot and slow cooker recipes.
  • Vintage stationery 1960s - 80s.
  • Bright and natural colors.
  • recycled and partially used items

Anything with an animal 💜:

  • Scottish Terriers.
  • Rescued pets and their stories.
  • Mega fauna - e.g. Woolly Mammoth, Saber tooth tigers, giant sloths.
  • Donkeys, goats, and pigs.
  • Fish and other sea life, horseshoe crabs.
  • Woodland creatures real or imagined.
  • Put a bird on it: Flamingos, barn swallows, woodpeckers, crows, turkeys, birds of prey.
  • Ferns, oak trees, poppies, hydrangeas, pines, cherry blossoms.
  • The only animal thing I don't like are real monkeys and chimpanzees especially when dressed in clothes, they creep me out.


  • Halloween year round. Love creepy vintage costumes and photos. Classic Universal monsters and Horror movies. Witch Hazel and Gossimer.
  • Silly or dark humor.
  • Oddities and Imperfections.
  • Pop culture, esp 70s and 80s.

  • Art deco and nouveau.
  • Modern art, turn me on to an artist you love.

  • Mid century architecture and furniture.
  • Industrial, steampunk, space, and scientific themes
  • Religious art, icons, and shrines.


  • Regional culture, dialect, ghost stories, treats, and recipes.
  • Kindness, equality, and tolerance.

  • R.O.U.S.
  • Portlandia. I think I've worked with every character on this show at Whole Foods. They get it so right and I love how everyone takes themselves so seriously.

Food and travel:

  • I like to imagine myself as one of those majestic women in an outdoor catalog, dressed in cool gear, one with nature, and effortlessly hiking up a mountain. I'm more likely to trip in the parking lot before I even get to the trail.
  • illustrations of food, esp breads and pastry.
  • Austria, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Canada.
  • Mountains, forests, and beaches.
  • Wine and cocktail recipes.

NOT crazy about-

  • scented items: intentional or accidental
  • Not that anyone would, but for the love of all things good and holy please do not send mustard.

Wes Anderson films are so good that I want to eat them.

This being said, you'll have my undying love if you send something related to his movies.

Favorite Books

Always reading something and it varies greatly, could be science fiction, fantasy, or historical fiction. Biography, Ted talks(don't know where to put these), or old childrens science textbooks.

I HIGHLY recommend: 3/24/17 -The fifteen lives of Harry August by Claire North.
-The Borgias have been fascinating me lately, it's amazing that we have the details of these people's lives that lived so long ago. I get exhausted just thinking about their daily lives.

Favorite Music

Spotify is on most of the day. Frequently Go to: 80s alternative, Wilco, The Who, Monsters of folk, Jack White, and love finding new music!

Favorite Crafts

Anything handmade by you is greatly loved and appreciated, no matter your skill level.

I enjoy making papercrafts: pocket letters, postcards, atcs, and mail art. I just haven't felt very crafty lately so haven't been joining those types of swaps. I do continue to buy and hoard supplies of course.

I really love needle felting, but am allergic to the wool:(

Thanks for reading. Have a great day!


Comment: Thank you for the chuckle :)

Comment: What a cute card!!!!! : ) Also love the doxie stickers! No big fall plans - I should’ve arrived in Japan today but we postponed the trip because of my dog’s surgery/illness. We will reschedule at a better time. Hope to do a country drive this weekend but the leaves are just starting to change now! Thanks for joining my swap!!! xoxo

Thank you for the November AATW wish. It was really neat to see what you want for Christmas. Do you ride a motorcycle? We have another thing in common (not motorcycles): we both have big noggins. I always have to get stretchy hats. Big brains I guess. I got a knit cap last year that says smile and it’s marked through. It’s taking a stand against men telling women to smile. I have a matching sweatshirt with a hissing opossum on it. It’s great. That’s all. Love you.

Thank you for the postcard that you sent to Julian!

Glad the pc made it in time for Halloween! The white stuff is probably spray paint. I did a lot of foggy/smokey effects with spray paint on my Halloween stuff this year.

★彡 ᴛʜᴀɴᴋ ʏᴏᴜ 彡★ for the pretty fancy envelope and goodies - it was a happy surprise in my mailbox today! I take it you got my handmade postcard? If not it's coming.

Also, I just looked over and noticed Dazed and Confused under your favorite movies. My obsession with that movie when it came out on VHS (lol, oh) was damn near silly.

OMGoodness! Thank you so much for my cursed October AATW wishlist package. The little bear pin hasn't tried to kill me in my sleep . . . yet. He will be added to my huge collection. I loved the stickers and of course the list of your Halloween costumes which were so creative. But the fairy!!!!!!!!! Her wing came off in transit, but I immediately reattached it, being the crafty girl I am. I love her sooooo much!!! I have her hanging next to me on the wood plank where I hang everything at the bottom of my loft bed where I sit when I work. My mom was impressed as well because we've been wondering what to do with those skeletons forever. I have some in a Halloween drawer downstairs in the craftroom. That skirt is boss! You have given me inspiration to turn my plain ol' skeletons into something magical. Thank you for all the goodies. (Sorry if I've left anything out. It's 3:30AM and I can't sleep--a bit loopy here). You're the bestest! <3

Mail headed your way!!!!

Thank you for the “butts” pc. I saw The Statue of David’s butt and thought “this should be interesting.” Sure enough it was a Tina reference. 😆 It made my day. Sorry I didn’t thank you sooner. He’s sitting on my coffee table, so I see him several times a day. 🤣

Littletiscrafty on Sep 4, 2018:

so glad to see you back in OZ!

susieq11 on Sep 3, 2018:

I am looking forward to that!!!!!!
