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, 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.

Favorite Books

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.


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!

porpie5 rated for Top Swap PC on Jul 7, 2018
Comment: Thank you so much for the international bridge postcard! I love that little bridge - shortest intern'l bridge in the world!!! Then I looked it up and Google puts both islands in Canada. It makes a great pic, though. I guess the actual shortest bridge is between Portugal and Spain -13 ft. shorter than the Zavikon Island bridge. But look what I learned in just a short time! Thanks also for the good quote! Excellent!! Thank you!
Response: The postcard lied?!? Hahaha that's too funny! I guess now we both learned something new from it!
January rated for OSS: Cool Collage Goodies on Jul 6, 2018
Comment: Thanks for the items Jessie - I will enjoy using those colors and the bird - love birds. (PS - future tip - somewhere in the envelope, let your partner know what swap it is and your swap name - helps to figure what's what and rate more easily :)
Response: Darn it, I used to be so good at remembering that, I do apologize. I did take a look at your profile to see what I could find in your taste, so I'm glad my choices indeed suited you well. 🙂
Comment: Thank you!
Response: Awe, thank you back Akanksha!

Response: I'm glad! Thanks for participating! I was a little worried about the turnout for this one.
Comment: Cute!!!! I'm impressed the chipboard embellishment made it through the mail. When I lived in the south, I would start thinking about beach in April. Here it will be June or July!
Response: Haha I was a little worried about that embellishment myself, but I've had weirder things travel unscathed. Yes, it's definitely beach weather here already. Just need the beach to be here too!
