About Me


I'll be travelling out of state to visit family for Thanksgiving, from the 16th to the 23rd. Any swaps I participate in will either be sent before then or will be assigning partners after I get back. I know I have some unrated swaps floating around out there, so if you message me about not receiving something, please know I will be happy to resend/ angel once I am back. I tend to check non-group messages whenever I see a notification on my phone, so I may read/reply to you before then, depending on how busy I am while gone. But I won't be able to make anything special before I get back. Thank you!

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 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 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.


Comment: Thanks for the postcard. It looks like a street in Quebec City that I visited this past summer~ I have traveled all over New England. I love Boston and live one hour North of it. The mountains in NH are beautiful too! Happy Thanksgiving Jessie!

Comment: Thanks for the card. I will have to look this guy up. Small world I guess that you grew up in my neighborhood. We often drive to Grant Park or Momence for gas. It's often as much as 50 cents cheaper there.
Response: I lived in Sherbernville and went to school in Grant Park. Small world indeed!
