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!
â€¢ATCs, inchies, skinnies, postcards!
â€¢Religious Art (mostly hispanic, catholic, old stuff)
â€¢smash book stuff!
â€¢TATTOO STUFF! im obsessed with everything related to tattoos.
â€¢all things PAPER
â€¢Monsters, zombies, other paranormal creatures (cute, not too scary!)
â€¢Day of the Dead items
â€¢Black or BRIGHT colours! i also tend to like the cooler side of the spectrum more. (no pastels here, guys!)
â€¢OWLS! hoot hoot!
â€¢all books (to read, to write or draw in)
â€¢Stationery and assorted paper items
â€¢Pens (not pencils)
â€¢Toys, knick knacks, items of whimsy (Old keys, bottle caps, compasses, watch parts, etc)
â€¢Steam punk-y type stuff
im not picky at all. i just love sending and recieving things in the mail!
â€¢Antique/old Rosary, preferably silver in colour, not gold
â€¢antique metal bits- keys, buttons, pins, pendants, etc
â€¢blank envelopes of all sizes (especially ridiculously small ones!)
â€¢animal amigurumi, preferably owl or octopus
â€¢ANYTHING with a sacred heart or Our Lady of Guadalupe on it
â€¢stamped items (neat rubber stamp OR old postage)
â€¢a rubber stamp set for postcards
â€¢i would really like to start a state postcard collection (instead of city postcards), but i also love foreign postcards! vintage too.
â€¢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-
â€¢extremely patriotic american items, as im not american
â€¢most things floral scented, or just heavily scented.
â€¢coffee flavoured anything (but i like the smell, WEIRD!)
â€¢new age christian stuff (post-1920s)
â€¢gold coloured items
â€¢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!
