About Me

In 2012 there were a few rough patches for me that ultimately took me away from Swap-Bot and other various commitments. All of the swaps I previously missed have since been closed. There is no way for me to fulfill these anymore even if I tried. There was no ill intention. I signed up for swaps with the full intention of fulfilling them. After a couple years now of missing Swap-Bot and this creative outlet, I'm hoping to slowly rejoin this community.

Any concerns, please message me.

Favorite Television

Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Saturday Night Live, Survivor, The Walking Dead, Top Chef

Favorite Movies

A Night at the Opera, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Burn After Reading, Contact, Fight Club, Guys and Dolls, Inception, Pride & Prejudice, Robin and the Seven Hoods, Shaun of the Dead, Star Trek, The African Queen, The Red Violin

Favorite Books

13 Little Blue Envelopes, A Little Princess, Girl with a Pearl Earring, Hamlet, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Paper Towns, The Glass Castle

Favorite Crafts

Unfortunately, right now I'm not very crafty. But I'm working on that.

I have been known to scrapbook, inkstamp, and make cards, friendship bracelets.

I'm trying to get myself to be more crafty, so I will push myself to be creative and cute and put stuff together. I need something better to do than just watch TV.

Since I've joined Swap-Bot, I've tried my hand at ATC's, mail-art, zentangles, and now mini-zines. Everyone here sounds so gung-ho about making all these things. I only make these things when I sign up for swaps. That means that so far I don't have much practice or experience. But everything I've sent out and all has received positive reviews. Thank goodness! :)

Just know that my heart goes into everything I make. And I won't send you something unless I'm proud of it.

Postcards

For reals, I will adore any postcard. It's all about getting something in the mail. For some reason everything just seems a little more special when it comes from someplace and someone else.

There of course a few favorites:

-Artwork (famous art or from a museum, or original art, local art, whatever)

-Space related (NASA, space programs, astronauts, celestial objects)

-Single View (especially of popular tourist attractions, or with name of city or state or country; scenery; buildings)

-Monarchs

-Handmade (photography especially, but collages and everything else is good too)

X Not a fan of Christmas cards, at least not during the summer. Wait for Christmastime.

Likes/Wishlist

-Cool postage stamps (used or new)

-Deco Tape or Washi Tape

-Dogs (Greyhounds are my favorite)

-Favorite colors: green, golden yellow, purple, pastels, bright colors

-Food (pictures, recipes, whatever; I love all food pretty much, sweet and savory, no allergies, it's all good.)

-Kawaii (new to this, so no specific requests; if it's cute, it's good)

-Mail-Art (if you're feeling up to it, decorate!)

-Music recommendations

-Postcards, handmade stuff, collages, ATC's, zines/minizines

-Puzzles and brain teasers

-Science related stuff (especially astronomy, outer space, quantum gravity, dark matter, black holes, etc.) Whether it's a magazine article, pictures of the night sky, pictures of science looking stuff, or questions or conversation starters in your letter or postcard, whatever.

-TV and movie references (especially if they're from my favorites)

-Virgo symbol

Dislikes

Unfortunately, here are some things I don't like

-Hello Kitty

-Children cartoons

-Politics

-Discrimination (age, race, sex, sexual preference, religion, whatever)

-Twilight Series

Comment: Thanks so much for the card and the stationary. It's so hard to find stationary lately. When I went shopping for it I could only find note cards. It came in handy too. Cute and functional!!! Thanks again.

Comment: Sorry, but I think you deserve a 3. The mail deadline was June 18 and the pc is post marked July 6th. Never recieved a message saying it would be late. You shouldn't have marked sent on June 19th when it was mailed way after that.
Response: Sorry it was so late. I'm taking a break from Swap-Bot for a couple months, until things in my real life have settled down. Unfortunately you were my partner when things started getting crazy in my real life. Hope you understand and still enjoy the postcard. Swap-Bot has been a blessing for me in many ways.
