About Me

Hi, my family all call me Tig, and I hate it...but it's all I could think of for a user name.

I live a magical life in a little 102 year old cottage, located in the beautiful Willamette Valley of Oregon, with my husband (the grumpy gnome) and rescue pup, HΓ₯ber.

I'm a practicing witch for 42 years, a Norse Pagan/Heathan. A lover of books, coffee, tea, chocolate and I'm a vegetarian. If I'm not in the kitchen baking, check out in the garden.

Favorites? Well, the color gray, and purple too. Glitter is a color in my world. Nature. Lavender...the color, scent and flavor. Anything magical, mystical and witchy. I love dark, twisted, gothic things as well as soft, light pixie stuff.

I truly believe that we all rise by lifting one another. That one person can make a difference. That there are always opportunities to make someone smile.

I don't do drama. I don't do hate, i don't do bullies.

More about me

I love writing letters, sending little surprises, little goodies. Swapping has been a constant in my life since I was 7. I even flew to Scotland to attend the wedding of a penpal, I was on the ground for a whopping 6 hours!

I really enjoy being creative, I do a lot of mixed media art, I've been know to cut up coffee table art books to make cards and flip books and things. Some of the things I send take me days to personalize and put together...I love the idea of making someone ecstaticly happy, even before they open their gift.

That's really how I see even a simple letter...its a gift, lovingly crafted from me to you.

I also make fairy dolls from those silly artist mannequins.

My favorite books/authors are... Night Circus, Alice in Wonderland, All of the Hitchhiker's Guide To the Universe books, Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue...it goes on and on. Favorite authors... Neil Giaman, ,Ransom Riggs, Douglas Adams, Robert Rankin.

Things I collect

Fairies, Tim Holtz paper dolls, Halloween ephemera, Scraps of fabric, lace and yarn (nothing less than 5 inches please), Acorn tops, Glitter and confetti, Stickers, Stationary, postcards, greeting cards, paperclips, Lavinia stamps, Dark Academia, Goblincore, Forestcore, Fairycore, Rocks, Twigs, Sticks, Vintage paper, Moss, Scandinavian style trolls, hot air balloons.

Things I don't collect

Anything Disney. I can not and will never support the Disney corporation. Pixar is just about as evil now. Planner, reward, kid stickers, Scraps from magazines

About the mail...

I live in a small college town, with a small post office. I will always try to get my swaps out BEFORE the deadline, that being said, it can take a day or two for my mail to be postmarked. I only mark sent when my swap is in the box outside the postoffice or in the hands of the great people inside. I also post photos on my instagram @comeswapingwithme the day I send something or receive something. If for some reason you do not receive a swap from me please let me know, I will make it right, I will of course extend my partners the same grace.
