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, 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, already come across two pieces of my own mail lost, and another two that other people sent me. (I have lost much faith in the US Postal system, but it also 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, so please do not hold it against me for not taking on more than I can handle, coordinators. 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.

I'm trying to get back into reading, as I haven't made much time for it anymore. My current book is Water for Elephants. My last one was Junkie. LAWL...
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 sometimes enjoy books about real people, or seemingly real people. Listening to perspectives & experiences, that type of thing.
