About Me

Hi! Me: tiny, cute, dangerous, rockin, artsy, caring, open-minded, carnivorous, asian west virginian, hippie punk rock, photographer's assistant (FSTImages look us up!), substitute teacher, painter, graphic designer, seller of handmade items, masters student, wife, and mother of 2. Cardigans, tattoos, patterns, papers, delicious savory foods. That kind of sums it up, but not really.

Join me on Instagram! I post all of my mail and other arts and crafts there and I love making new friends! See above link or on instagram I go by CreatureRooms

~SOME THINGS I COLLECT~

  • Zines- any, all, old, new, punk, feminist, crafty, whatever! Please send my way if you have any you want to get rid of or swap for =)

  • Security envelope lining patterns- I like them and I'm now realizing that there are tons of different ones! Don't mind if they're cut to fit into a smaller envelope, as long as there are decent-sized pieces

  • Smash book items. I love the K&Company Smash brand. But I also use all kinds of ephemera, pretty papers, and crafts, and basically everything pretty or interesting that I get from swapping and penpals goes in my smash books.

General Loves

  • Handcrafted items and lots of beautiful crafty materials
  • Fun/pretty/unique stamps, pretty stickers
  • Ampersands
  • Mail Art
  • Graphic design, letterpress
  • Pretty/fun patterns, prints, papers, and graphic textiles
  • Food! I love foods! New and exotic foods (I'm a foodie and I fear nothing). I'd rather have a ribeye steak than cake, cookies, or chocolate, true story
  • Tattoos, punk rock, rockabilly
  • Traveling and sight seeing
  • Weird and quirky, off-beat or unusual, strange and beautiful (yo gabba gabba, wes anderson, baz luhrman, yoshitomo nara... are just a few examples of visual styles I like)
  • Alice in Wonderland (not specific to the newest movie, but more so the book and all artistic interpretations)
  • Fashion, pretty clothes, grandma-style cardigans and accessories, and chunky funky accessories
  • Teals, pinks/magenta, and a combination of both, mustard yellow, chartreuse, and all kinds of beautiful color pallets and combinations
  • Music is life - live music is everything. I love Dave Matthews Band and see them every year. Blink 182 is a close favorite. Jack white, Arctic Monkeys, Postal Service, Tenacious D, Freddie Mercury, Jeff Mangum, and Ben Folds are amazing geniuses. Most 90's music makes me happy even though so much of it sucks lol. And I love discovering new music!

A Note About Swapping

If you haven't received anything from me several weeks after my send date (of course, allow more for international), PLEASE let me know so I can resolve and resend! =) I'll do it!

I always put 110% into what I send. Please be considerate and try to do the same :) I don't care at all if you're not a great artist and I'm really not picky about the types of things that I receive! but I do appreciate at least a little time and effort =) I would rather have thoughtful items sent closer to the deadline then something thrown together and sent early!

That said, I very much understand that everyone's tastes and styles are different and I always rate fairly and usually within 48 hrs of receiving an item.

For mail and packages

I'm really not picky at all--I love getting all kinds of things in the mail (as long as it's thoughtful and well put together of course :) )! See above and If you need some additional direction, here is what makes my mailbox happy:

  • thoughtfully handmade items
  • anything fun! I like bling and glitter sometimes, super cutesy stuff sometimes, big bright patterns and colors, puffy stickers, shiny things, googly eyes, etc.
  • quirky! If it's quirky, offbeat, or flat out weird, I'll like it. Think Wes Anderson, Yo Gabba Gabba, Superjail... google and like :)
  • lots of stamps and/or unique/fun/pretty stamps, if possible
  • I am not easily offended. I enjoy pinups and oddities as much as the next gal. likewise, religious items are welcome as well

For postcards

I like all sorts of postcards. Even those generally considered free or crappy. I prefer stamps--lots of pretty or unique stamps, postmarks, and something (anything) written on the back. Otherwise, a postcard is a postcard!

General likes:

  • big letter/large letter postcards. They're so cool looking! Google for pics
  • map postcards
  • handmade postcards
  • weird or quirky or funny postcards
  • historical and/or geography-specific (cities, states, countries, landmarks, etc.)
  • If you don't have those, any will do :)
  • if possible, tell me about you and/or the place where you live and/or about the picture on the postcard. I don't get to travel as much as I used to so I love learning about places and their people through my postcard collection

General dislikes

I hate to add this category, because I'm generally happy to receive anything that meets swap requirements, but for the sake of my profile...

  • sloppy/thrown together swaps. I'll love anything, highly artistic or not, but please spend a few moments on it before you send!
  • tea. I'm just not a tea drinker, but if you happen to send, I'll happily gift it to a friend :)
  • i'm not a huge fan of thank you cards. There are tons of pretty ones but I don't use them. I would be able to gift them to a friend if I ever got any though :)
  • anything that has the look of precious moments. i'm not crazy about it--unless it's super weird and awesome, in which case i'll probably like it

Comment: Your envelope was AMAZING!!! Thank you so much for using my love for anthropomorphism as your inspiration!
Response: I'm so excited that you liked it! I was hoping it would be good enough. Your profile and interests were inspiring for my artwork!

Comment: Thanks for the really rude letter you sent me. :( I didn't receive your swap and a month later I messaged you and I didn't get a reply?!?! Then today I got your swap with a really rude. I never got a message from you. Imsorry if I am not in the "spirit of swapbot". I just find it rude not to get a reply so I gave you a one and a polite message with it say I will re rate when I receive something :(
Response: oct 20 - hello, sorry you felt it was rude. It said just what I wrote here and also in a message. Neither of those received a response so that's why I sent an additional message in my letter. I sent two messages through messaging on oct. 4 and oct 6 immediately after getting your message plus I wrote this response here on oct 4. I get an email each time I receive a new message or response to a rating. That totals 6 communications that you should have seen. Both of my sent messages were marked as "read" by you. You were on swap bot every day I checked it. You had to have seen those messages or at least I would think so. If not, then I suppose we can blame the site. I didn't get a response from you either, therefore I felt compelled to let you know in my letter how I felt about rating me a 1 on oct 4, the same day I first received a message from you. All is said and done now thanks for the rerate. -----------Oct 4 - Hi, I'm happy to resend. I wrote at least 4 pages by hand on this swap and I have a picture of the decorated envelope with 6 stamps on it in my instagram feed (@creaturerooms ...this link might work http://instagram.com/p/d1sHnMvfR_/) with your full name on it 4 weeks ago. International mail always has a chance of getting misplaced so I understand and will resend. I wonder why I got a 1 though because in your profile it says "BEFORE YOU GIVE ME A 1 OR 3 PLEASE MESSAGE ME AND I CAN SEND YOU ANOTHER SWAP OUT INSTEAD. THANKS." (caps copied and pasted) I appreciate that you'll change it when you receive the letter, but wish you'd have given me a bit of a chance since I just got your message today. EDIT resend sent Wed. Oct. 9. Handwritten, 3 pages I think. No one word answers. Allow some time for delivery as this letter is traveling from US to UK.

Comment: Thank you for the paper pieces, Miranda. Yes, I can use them in papercrafting. :) My daughter will probably enjoy taking them for her Smashbook. ha ha! I missed seeing a return address. I would've loved to thank you via snail mail! But I love how you used the West Virginia postage stamp and then it was postmarked in Charleston, West Virginia. Pretty clever touch! :) Thank you! I can tell you enjoy papercrafts, too.
Response: Aw, it's really nice that you would have sent a snail mail thank you! But this is really nice enough :)) I love that we have state stamps. The post office was out of them last time I went!
