I'm a full-time artist, I spend most of my days in the studio. I like going out with friends at night, but I get up so early that this is really hard to do!
I like collecting things. I watch a lot of movies and/or cartoons while I work. I got a kindle for christmas so I've rediscovered books but I can't seem to start reading any of them that I actually don't hate.
Sci-Fi and all cartoons, almost exclusively. I wake up in the morning and turn on Cartoon Network and it is still on when I turn off the TV to go to sleep.
Recently I've gotten really into journaling and smashbooks! Love it, no idea why! I'm using a Hobonichi Techo this year.
I love making and trading ATCs. I've been doing this for 9 years, I have huge binders full of cards. I love to go through them and look, but even more I love to make them. It's really easy and relaxing, there isn't as much pressure as with a full piece of art. I like themes, but during the time I wasn't swapping, I made stacks of cards with just my own abstract art on them.
Everything else: I like doing anything with paper and glue. My room is filled with paper craft toys and origami stars. I used to knit a lot, but I've fallen out of it because I couldn't figure out how to do any of the more complicated knits. I've never been able to get the hang of crochet either, no matter how much I would like to learn it. Sometimes I like to make things out of sculpey. I sew all of my own costumes.
MOSTLY I am just an artist, so I spend 90% of my time painting and drawing.
My favorite animal is the octopus. I LOVE them. I think they're cool and majestic. I got into cephlapods by watching the National Zoo's webcam of their octopus a little too much. I really thought it was an intriguing animal
My favorite scents include: pumpkin, lemon, citrus, coconut
I collect postage stamps and rocks. Stamps I specialize in are bridges and Japanese furusato.
Other things I like: origami paper, fish/ocean items, scifi/space related stuff, food-themed junk, stickers!!!
I've gotten the washi tape bug, too! I have too much of it, and I put it on EVERYTHING when I get bored! I love that stuff.
My favorite color is orange. My room is a blue and green motif, with an underlying black accent color, and some colorful polka dots.
Things I generally dont like: -christmas -glitter
Things that are NOT okay to send me: -candles -bath things, I dont have a bath, just a shower. I dont want these things to go to waste.
I ALWAYS try to rate as soon as I receive a swap, but if I forget to rate you, please do not hesitate to message me or shoot me an email about it. I do not wish for anyone to go without a rating for something I got.
As for my own 1s, I sincerely apologize. I promise that these were all sent out, but failed to reach their final destination. All of these things happened a long time ago and there is nothing I can do about it now. I do regret one swap, in which ATCs were returned to me but I failed to mail them out again. I just couldn't afford to do it at the time. I apologize for this as well.
If you do not receive something from me in a swap, please contact me as soon as you begin to feel uneasy! The chances are that the package/letter has been lost in the mail or has simply not arrived yet. If something like this happens, I will send you a replacement. Don't hesitate to ask! Sometimes I send things out very close to the deadline.
