About Me

Hola, my name's Jessie. I enjoy movies, music, painting, and random crafting projects, and I'm looking forward to the new art I will find through this to admire and inspire me.
I'm somewhere around 30 years old. I have 2 of the sweetest chihuahuas you'd ever meet, along with our newest member, Domino, a lovebug 10 year old kitty. They are my children. My boyfriend helps keep me as minimalist as I can hope to be, but my craft stuff will probably always be the biggest space consumer in my place, so I joined this to help put it to good use!
I'm a bit quiet, but I love making new friends & discussing movies, music, & shows mostly. I'm part hippy, part metal head, part rockabilly, & part nudist hermit. Take that as you will.
I cannot stress how much I love anything nautical. My living room walls are covered with pop culture prints from Comicons, but my bedroom & bathroom are completely done up with nautical & bohemian decor.

I pledge: To always send my swaps on time, or IF some crisis comes up, to message you ahead of time about it being sent late. I am NOT a flaker! I've gotten to a point now where I send most stuff off well before the end date. I have, however, lost much faith in the US Postal system. It makes me understanding of others' lost swaps, AS LONG AS they do me the same courtesy I would do them, by keeping in close contact & re-sending.) I am still young and (somewhat) spry, so I am at times too busy to be in more than a couple swaps at a time. If I do accept a swap, I am committed to finishing it, however. Oh, and my start date is so long ago for so few swaps because for YEARS I've been interested in swapping thanks to a friend who told me about it, but never did any. My first swap deadline was Sep. 5, 2017.

Favorite Books

I'm trying to get back into reading, as I haven't made much time for it anymore. I've mostly been listening to audio books while at work.

As a young adult, I read all of Ann Rice's vampire chronicles (the old chronicles), as well as some other of her books. I have many more that I haven't read yet though, and with Atlantis now out I need to get on that!

Lewis Caroll, Grimm's fairy tales, the Narnia books, & HP Lovecraft are some of my other favorites.

I also enjoy books about real people, or seemingly real people. Listening to perspectives & experiences, that type of thing.

Comment: Love the ATCs, thank you!! They are all super adorable! I wonder if there's a word for the human with animal heads thing... maybe we should do a swap for that sometime, it's a cool theme! <3 <3 <3
Response: Awe, yay, I'm glad you like them! Yesss I am so down for that idea. Apparently it's called theriocephaly (some greek nonsense word).

Comment: Wow... O_O Just... WOW! This entire swap is so stunning... From the card over the envelope to the stamp! And your ATC looks absolutely creepy! :D I LOVE it! The image is so fascinating and of course I had to look or pastel-galaxy-tutorials! Now I regret that I gave all my pastel colours away... Super cool swap! Thanks for hosting it!!! :D
Response: So happy to hear it arrived safe and found a good home! I was worried someone in the mail system might snag it because of the envelope art, haha. I LOVE getting messy with my art, so doing the pastel galaxies was so much fun!

Comment: Jessie, thank you for the postcard of the homes along the canals in FL. I always wanted a home on the water but had to settle for one on the golf course. Shirley
Response: I want a home by the water too, but have somehow found myself in Arizona. ;D

Comment: I LOVE this envelope of purple fun! It's a color I like but I don't actually have lots of, so happy to have some great items to use. Love the beads especially - thank you!
Response: Happy to hear! I'm not a fan of purple myself, so I'm glad I could pass along the cute stuff I've acquired to someone who can use it better. :)
Comment: You should come up to Alaska to see the animals and the mountain vistas for yourself! Thanks for the great PC, I put a Russian language page on mine! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Some of my family used to live in Alaska too, it sounds so beautiful! I'm a wuss in the cold, otherwise I would have definitely moved somewhere greener at the very least. Maybe someday I'll get to visit though!
