About Me

Hello! I'm 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
  • paper and magazine cut-outs related to my interests as I've got a traveler's journal I collage in. It has to be thin or regular weight paper; unfortunately I don't have a use for patterned cardstock or scrapbooking die-cuts.

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)

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 the stunning illustrated card. I'm going to check out cherry rabbit. I love the strawberry stickers and bunny doodle. You have made me so curious about smoky tea. I am going to try to find some at a local Russian market.

Thank you for all the amazing goodies you sent me in the PF tag "Send to the Person Above You." I love all the stickers, the memos, and PC. The "Magical Street Cats" sticker you sent is perfect! I'll have to find somewhere permanent to place it. Our street cat, Sylvia the raccoon, is back this spring/summer to visit. She'll be bringing her babies out in about a month when they're old enough to visit, too. =D
