About Me

Note to hosts May 2020: There is a late swap on my dashboard because I am waiting until it's possible to send mail to my partner's country.

Hello! I'm a student in my 30s and a longtime mailartist and penpaller. I'm on here mostly for small "random items" type swaps that allow me to pick out treasures to send you from my dragon's hoard of stationery, etc., but occasionally will do more involved swaps.

Favourite Crafts

acrylic painting; my usual style involves heavily diluting the paint so the results look a lot like watercolours:

Arabian ibis

poetry; I'm influenced by modern and contemporary Canadian poetry, surrealism, language poetry, and Stuff I Found On The Internet.

Favourite Craft Themes

  • birds (owls, pelicans, crows and magpies)
  • ocean (jellies, sea stars, algae)
  • space (stars, nebulae, planets and moons)
  • fantasy and science fiction (original or myth-based)
  • extinct animals (stegosaurus, dimetrodon, pterodactyl)
  • cities (skylines, signs, cities at night)
  • colour schemes (blue & turquoise, neon green & black, purple & black, pink & brown)

Wish List

Handmade

  • hand-drawn or painted postcard
  • mail in a decorated envelope
  • handmade envelopes
  • handmade stickers
  • your poems or short stories
  • handmade necklaces
  • handmade hair bows

Clippings

  • simple vegetarian recipes
  • poems you like
  • promotional materials from art shows
  • Sudoku puzzles

Storebought items

  • kawaii stationery
  • colourful pens and Sharpies
  • adult colouring postcards (please only send the postcards, if possible; I have enough colouring sheets and books to last an eternity)
  • scrunchie hair ties
  • socks

Odds and Ends

  • pretty much any stickers or washi samples or stationery you have lying around ;)
  • Some of my favourite characters that appear on stationery and stickers are Aggretsuko, Rilakkuma, Kuromi, Doc McStuffins, and the Tokidoki Mermicornos.

Tea (individually packaged, please)

  • with coconut
  • with vanilla
  • nettlewort
  • most teas, really, but please don't send mint or rooibos if you can avoid it

General Interests

Science, especially ecology.

Contemporary art

Poetry

Pop music, but for music swaps I'm interested in any musical genre.

Manga and comics, my respective favourites being Sailor Moon and Saga.

Kawaii. I'm not picky about it, so feel free to send any character or brand.

Angels

Thank you to @jannikinz , @Traceyk , @runswithscizzors , @dearguppy , and @mgallardo68 for angeling swaps for me.

Thank you to @RooBaRoo for my Swap-Bot icon.

Comment: Thank you for inviting me to swap with you for Canada Day. I got your fun Edmonton postcard. What a hoot. I had no idea we have Magpies in Canada. They are beautiful birds. I had no idea they can be punks. 😉 "Will say mean things about your mom when confronted." 🤣

Comment: Thanks for this great envie and PC to "Miss Jane!" It is best to stay away from here, even when wearing a top hat, as the Navy does war games here! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

Hi bblue. I got your extra card. I love the quirky collage mail-art.

P.S. The lightning bolt in a shimmery silver and the cloud in a matt grey is very effective. Beautiful Carmichael postage stamp too.

Thank you so much for the vellum stickers, that was awfully sweet of you. Take care and stay safe. 🙌

Cheap postage tag (public forum)

Thank you so much for the cute stickers, memos and letter set!! I feel very spoilt haha.

You're right, London is so diverse that I often have kids in my class who don't speak any English. It can be challenging but I've learnt handfuls of Vietnamese and Portuguese over the years!

You are a truly amazing person, thank you so so much for the lovely note and stickers!!,!,! I hope you are well and my package for you shows up soon! ❤️ 🤗 🐈
