late twenties non-american graphic designer living in washington state with my husband and baby daughter.
flickr might have ATC spoilers, so dont look if i am your partner.
i illustrate, draw, sew, knit, crochet, lino-cut, paint.... i kind of do it all.
i also have a penchant for everything to do with paper and papercrafting. im kind of obsessed with it. i dont always know what to do with it, but i love collecting it.
i cant really say what my favourite band is, since my range of taste is pretty huge.
i like mostly alternative, simple music with not alot of noise. my parents raised me around alot of classic rock, which i love.
i also like metal, punk and rockabilly. any band that has piano in their music is awesome, or a brass section. like The Killers! theyre one of my favourites.
i also heart death cab for cutie! tiger army, rise against, iron maiden!
i like non-fiction! i like fiction! i like war stories, i like period romances, i love the classics, i love paranormal romance!
catcher in the rye, everything by jack kerouac or from the beat generation, grapes of wrath, memoirs of a geisha was great, queen betsy series, katie macalister, mermaids, everything!
im most definitely not picky when it comes to a good book!
•ATCs, inchies, skinnies, postcards!
•Religious Art (mostly hispanic, catholic, old stuff)
•smash book stuff!
•TATTOO STUFF! im obsessed with everything related to tattoos.
•all things PAPER
•Monsters, zombies, other paranormal creatures (cute, not too scary!)
•Day of the Dead items
•Black or BRIGHT colours! i also tend to like the cooler side of the spectrum more. (no pastels here, guys!)
•OWLS! hoot hoot!
•all books (to read, to write or draw in)
•Stationery and assorted paper items
•Pens (not pencils)
•Toys, knick knacks, items of whimsy (Old keys, bottle caps, compasses, watch parts, etc)
•Steam punk-y type stuff
im not picky at all. i just love sending and recieving things in the mail!
•Antique/old Rosary, preferably silver in colour, not gold
•antique metal bits- keys, buttons, pins, pendants, etc
•blank envelopes of all sizes (especially ridiculously small ones!)
•animal amigurumi, preferably owl or octopus
•ANYTHING with a sacred heart or Our Lady of Guadalupe on it
•stamped items (neat rubber stamp OR old postage)
•a rubber stamp set for postcards
•i would really like to start a state postcard collection (instead of city postcards), but i also love foreign postcards! vintage too.
•stuff to put in my smash book!!
I also collect Charley Harper animal postcards! I love them!
things is rather not recieve but will pass on if i do-
•extremely patriotic american items, as im not american
•most things floral scented, or just heavily scented.
•coffee flavoured anything (but i like the smell, WEIRD!)
•new age christian stuff (post-1920s)
•gold coloured items
•friendship books (i dont even know what to do with them?!)
in reality, i love the way glitter looks, but please please please avoid sending it to me. i have extreme skin reactions to it.
Due to illness, I received a few 1s in 2010, and while I would like to make it up to the people i wronged, they are no longer active on swapbot, and neither are the swap hosts. so despite wanting to send the swaps, i cannot.
I would really like to get back to a good rating. Before i got sick, i had only 5s, most with hearts.
Please note- my recent 3 is a rerate from a swap I failed to send 2 years ago. It is not from a recent swap.
i am not a flaker. at one point i did flake, and it was unfortunate and out of my control, but it WONT happen again.
i always send my swaps, usually the day after partners are assigned, so if you dont receive my swap- please let me know. i will be more than happy to resend.
I am more than interested in any private swaps for ATCs, postcards, smash book stuff and profile swaps! I have a lot of vintage postcards, and i can get any from my area!
Let me know!
