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.

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.
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)
-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.
-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!)
-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)
Unfortunately, here are some things I don't like
-Discrimination (age, race, sex, sexual preference, religion, whatever)
