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 nerd, & 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 give hearts based on effort. Be that how much you put into your art, or, especially for postcards, whether or not you took the time to look at my profile and pick something special to my taste, or for non-profile based, at least wrote or sent me something interesting, these all fit in that category. I would expect/appreciate the same!

I mark sent when the mail is "out of my hands," as per Swapbot rules, which in most cases, means my mailbox. So calm yourself if the postmark is a day or two after that.

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, so please message me if you don't receive something and are worried! I've gotten to a point now where I send most stuff off well before the deadline. 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.)

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 many 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 2 new vampire books 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.


I've gotten pretty involved in postcard swapping, so it's about time I add my preferences...


  • Quirky, odd, provocative are probably my favorite!
  • Spooky
  • Funny
  • Mermaids, unicorns, or dragons
  • Narwhals
  • Vintage/ retro
  • Alice in Wonderland or other phantasmagoria
  • Cats or Boston Terriers, Frenchies
  • Any animals in clothing, especially formal wear
  • Space
  • Mushrooms


I really don't like anything generic, especially touristy! Even if it's vintage. Save it for someone better.

PLEASE no Disney, etc. cards. I've never been a fan, and don't have any kids to share it with. I like adult-friendly cartoons only.

Scenery photographs, or photos of anything else boring. Meh.


I currently have tons of Alice in Wonderland postcards and Adventure Time. Feel free to message me a request if I am sending to you for a swap, or any other preferences. I love receiving hearts, and will always do my best to please!
