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.
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.
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:
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!
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...
