About Me

Hello! My name is Ari Barron, I am 24 years old. I recently graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a major in History of Art and Architecture and a minor in Education. I am currently working as a paraprofessional at a local high school in a Language Arts classroom. I absolutely love it and decided to continue my education to receive my teaching credentials. I am going to a teacher's college at the moment and plan to finish within a few years. I have been pretty busy but I am finally on track to start being active on Swap-Bot again and I am so exited.

I joined swap-bot as a way to keep busy and express my creative side! Some other things I love to do is paint- mostly with acrylics and watercolors. I am currently working on a project of filling up my wall with paintings, made by myself and by friends. My collection is pretty random with an overall theme of Glow-In-The- Dark.

As an Art History major, I absolutely love art museums, interactive spaces, and innovative ideas in art and technology. I would love to hear from some of my swapbot friends of any experiences or recommendations of awesome places around the world to visit.

Penpal

I love to penpal and meet new people from around the world. I try to make my letters as creative and unique as possible! I wanted to branch out from penpaling so I decided to join swapbot. My penpal account on instagram is the same: ARIMAILS, so feel free to follow me on there.

ATC

I absolute love the idea of ATCs, its like a collection of other peoples artwork from around the world and I think having that is so creative. I cant wait to get more involved and start my own collection of ATCs! I mostly do hand-drawn/ hand-painted or collage style ATCs. I put my whole heart into making these and I hope that whoever gets them, enjoys receiving them as much as I enjoyed making them

ATCs that I'm missing in my collection:

I have recently been doing some ATC Coins, which is such a cute twist on regular ATCs. I would love to swap more of these types and start an ATC Coin collection as well!

Postcard

I have a growing collection of blank postcards, and although I do prefer that they are not written on, I do still love and appreciate receiving postcards from my swapbot friends! I like all types, currently collecting all the different types of Little Mermaid Ariel postcards from Disney's Wonderground Art Gallery. I love love love artsy kinds and space/ underwater types. I also really like Sci-Fi postcards. Vintage/ Retro/ Black and White.

I do not collect any city or state postcards!

Swaps and Ratings

I will always send my swaps and I will always rate my partners.

If I haven't rated, it is most likely I haven't checked my PO Box yet or I haven't received the swap yet. I will always private message my partners before rating down. I understand people may get unexpectedly busy or there may be some delays due to the post office that are just out of our control. Although I do appreciate my partner letting me know of any problems ahead of time, I believe everyone deserves a second chance and am always happy to receive a resend.

I ask that if there are ever any concerns with my swaps, my partners message me before rating low. I always try to go above and beyond with my swaps but if my partner ever feels like what I sent is unsatisfactory or never received it, I am always willing to do a resend.

I received a 3 rating for lateness on a swap (Stuff the Mailbox #13- 20 partners). Although my swap was sent out on time, one of my partners swap was postmarked late. After messaging my partner and explaining what may have been the problem, weekends and holidays, my partner believed it to be unfair and so my rating remains.

I received a 3 rating for lateness on a swap (Stuff the Mailbox #17- 20 partners). " What I find interesting" is that it was only from 1 of my 20 partners because they originally claim it was ONE day late. Although I sent them all out at the same time and by the deadline.

A Friendly Reminder: Please make sure to always put enough postage on your packages. I have been receiving a lot of swaps with postage due recently. I am a pretty lenient and understanding person and just ask for others to be considerate. If a partner receives a swap from me with postage due, I will try my best to correct the mistake so please let me know before rating :)

Hello there! Posting from Profile hello from all over #5 swap. I read your profile and think it's pretty awesome you are going to be a teacher -- as am i! I start school in one month for an accelerated program to be a middle school math teacher and then to finish my master's of education. I hope you do amazingly well in school and follow your dreams! It's taking me into my 30's now to follow mine, but it is never too late! Here's to hoping you have a wonderfully amazing day, school year, and overall teaching experience!
