About Me

Hello!

My name is Mirren.Happy Birthday to me! The bars finally opened, but somehow, I would rather stay home and create art. Go figure.

I like animals, plants, decorating my new house (we just moved here from middle of nowhere Oklahoma to kinda somewhere in Texas,) writing letters, meeting new people, and watching movies.

I am in the process of putting up a ton of art on my walls and unpacking my boxes. You have all been a great inspiration for actually unpacking my boxes! Thank you so much for the encouragement!

I Would Love to Receive

*Stickers! (Although I do not want any holiday, reward, teacher, kiddie stickers OR Easter Seals. I was not even aware that Easter Seals still exist!)

*Washi tape. Who does not love washi tape?

*ATCs. I LOVE ATC's!

*ATC bases.

*Parakeets and cockatoos! I have a little green and yellow parakeet named Chicken or Chickie for short.

*Hello Kitty and all of her friends! (Especially Cinnamoroll and My Melody!)

*Gloomy Bear, General Purpose Rabbit and Mori Chack as an artist.

Kawaii Favs include San-X randoms like Zombbit and other not so preferred for most people--send it all to me! Please!

Kawaii Also: Sentimental Circus, Tarepanda, Kamio girl sticker flakes, and then a bunch of others I honestly cannot currently identify, though I have tried.

*I wear grey. A LOT. I find it soothing, but my favorite colors are plum purple and indigo.

*Bob's Burger's Kuchi Kopi and Louise.

*My Hero Academia is a random anime show that I somehow got hooked on. Izawa in particular is my favorite character. I am not even sure how I came in contact with the show, but I am addicted.

*Collage Images. I think some people call these images clip art? I have seen sheets of color printed images specifically made for collage or decoupage and definitely turn a little green with envy. Just a little.

*Japanese doodle books. They are smaller than a trade paperback, pretty thin and show the easiest little illustrations for pens and such. I stumbled over a few at a garage sale when we first moved here and fell in love with them!

Curious

There are a few things I have seen and am not sure of what they are or the appeal. I would love to be enlightened if you can share in either capacity on any of the below.

*Inchies. Why? I admit that I do not understand. I am still trying to see them the way those who love them do, but seriously. Why?

*Letterpress or Lantern press? Are these just high quality items or are they different in some other way?

*Fauxbinichi? People are nuts for these things, and I am still trying to get clear on exactly what they are. Help!

Collections

Collections:

(I do not know that I'll ever be involved in swaps that would require this knowledge, but I will share just to give more of an idea of who I am.)

*Funko Pops. I got sucked in and really like the unique and different ones. So many of them look the same.

*Fairly specific coloring books such as Creative Haven, Selena French and some others. They are not expensive, but I did not join Swap-bot to exchange things of this nature.

Please No

There are a few things I would like to NOT receive in the mail or have show up on my doorstep due to health issues, personal beliefs or just plain dislike.

*Cigarette smoke. No. Just no. I smoked for a year and fortunately, the damage it did was not permanent, but the smell triggers my gag reflex something fierce.

*Heavily scented items. I do like candles, incense, and certain oils, but because I was apparently kept in a bubble for too many years, I have sensitivities to such things.

*Cat hair. I have pets occasionally, but I do NOT allow pet hair to linger anywhere in my house. I do not have children (I do love them!) and currently have the time that when I do have pets, I meticulously lint brush everything and Swiffer like a mad woman. (My mama has informed me that this will change when I have children, but I cannot imagine that anyone would want their baby covered in cat hair.) I do not judge others' use of their time as I realize that my OCD nature and extensive collection of dollar store, old school lint brushes is not for everyone (or anyone else, really,) but please do not send me cat hair anything through the mail.

*Spiders. Some of the first Texans I met probably thought I was crazy. I may or may not have squealed a little out loud over a particularly amazing garage sale find. (Ok, so it was loud enough that my new husband came over to see if I had managed to find another confrontational spider or if, like the last one, it was a plastic toy... that did not even remotely resemble a spider.)

*Heavy items. Unless required for a swap that I have signed up for, I ask that you do not send things that cost more to ship than they do to purchase. I hope one day to buy out the USPS and have them all wear mint green, vintage looking ice cream man uniforms, and sing as they cheerfully deliver your (never bills) mail! Until that happens, please know that I would love to send you painted rocks and a small collection of the feral children that I continuously find and make friends with (usually involuntarily) in each AND every Walmart, grocery store, and sometimes just on the sidewalk in front of my house.

*Pagan or witch items. I know it is Halloween, which is why I am seeing a LOT of those things everywhere these days, but if you have not already guessed, I was raised extremely conservatively. While I have an open mind, I investigate/contemplate certain things on my own terms and timing.

*Food. I am a food sensitive foodie. It is awful, but I cannot eat just anything, though I wish I could and have repeatedly tried. It is also a heavy thing to post and would not want to receive in the mail.

*Postcards. Unless I join or host a postcard swap, or it is in line with some of my likes (like a Hello Kitty postcard,) I really do not have a use for them, but would be glad to do a private swap and send you some of the ones I have!

In Conclusion

I apologize if I have phrased anything in such a way that someone finds my profile offensive. However, I am being extremely honest and since this is my profile to fill out "WELL" (lol,) I have chosen my words carefully and will update as I have time or see fit.

I am actually very laid back. I just read through my profile and scared myself! I sound like a strict, conservative person! (Oh. This is what they mean when they say that we all turn into our mothers/fathers...?)

I am a right brained, winter child. I have learned the Type A personality in order to be successful in certain things, but I am almost 21, newly married, and just moved a state away from my parents, so give me a chance. I am sure I will start getting into trouble any day now. Or worse... using contractions! (Yes. I am very aware that I don't (OH! That feels so wrong. I am a rebel!) use them.)

I love all the little things people have been adding into my envies! Please don't feel that you have to include extras for me to rate you appropriately, but thank you so much for them!

ATC Themes I LOVE

I am in the process of building up certain collections of themes in my ATC's. I love the idea of subject studies and image or figure obsession!

*Kuchi Kopi (Louise's toy from Bob's Burgers)

*Rainbow Dash, Princess Luna, Trixie and Pinkie Pie

*Strawberry Shortcake and her friends

Comment: Hi! Thank you so much for the awesome and adorable ATC and for the sweet tuck-ins you included. I love the wings you drew on the envelope, they're so pretty! I'm also just now seeing your comment on my profile, sorry about that! Thank you for the makeup tips but I'm really avoiding wearing anything on my face nowadays with COVID, especially since I wear masks anytime I'm out and when I'm at work. :P Hopefully things will change! Stay safe and healthy!
