About Me

Hiya! I'm Brian from Stillwater, Oklahoma. I'm an author and I have some poetry books available on Amazon if you're interested.

***** I HATE STAR WARS! *****

I'm a single guy living in rural Oklahoma, just a few miles from where I was raised. I moved back here from Alaska a few years ago.

There is no need to masculinize swaps for me. I'm not afraid of "girly" things.

Favorite Crafts

I'm a mixed media artist and I love creating art journals. It's tempting to make them big, but I prefer ones with only a few pages so they can represent a brief moment.

Painting, drawing, collage, assemblage, etc. I'll try just about anything once. I wish I was better with a sewing machine.

Comment: Thank you! What a special card! I hope your dad is doing better. My dad has also been unwell recently, spending too much time in the hospital. Sending all the positive things to your dad and you.
Response: Ah, thanks. He's working on it! He won't admit it, but his stay in the hospital did a world of good. He just likes complaining about it. I hope things with your dad improve. It's not fun to be in and out of the hospital.

Happy Birthday!

I received your postcard today with your website on it. I checked it out. You seem like a really fun person! I look forward to more swaps with you.

Paige1900 on Aug 21, 2017:

LOL...I was just reading your profile, and saw that you liked Cicadas. They are so loud where I live that we can't sit on our back porch and hear ourselves talk.

Brian! Thank you so much for the hand drawn merman! That was incredibly thoughtful of you.

I found the lenticular PCS at a store called Flying Tiger (or it could be Tyger, I forget). It is a store out of Denmark and it is sort of like this cool-designer style dollar store cheap stuff from China. But I couldn't resist postcards, notecards, tissue paper, ribbon, etc. I visited them in the Netherlands this summer and I looked at their website to see if they have stores here in the U.S. But I don't remember if they do or not because none in Colorado.
