(After I finish all my swaps, I'll be dwindling my max swaps to 2 so I can focus on other things!)
Hi! My name is Marci. I'm a Mexican/Filipino queer artist. I try hard to reconnect with my roots, especially through food--if you have stories to share about being Mexican or Filipino, I would love to hear them!
I'm 24 and I'm a manager for delivery drivers contracted to Canada Post. I've immigrated to Canada from the US (official since October 2016!) and every day I am grateful that I came to Canada. I came to Canada to be with my lovely wife, who always showers me with love and understanding.
I'm an avid reader--I like fantasy and books for young adults. I also read lots of comics--LOADS of them. I dream that one day people will love my comics just as much.
My hobbies are birdwatching, drawing, and playing games. I love to play with my 3 cats as well. Their names are Bees, Moth, and Jersey. I apologize if cat hair gets into anything I send out--I try to keep them away from my work space, but sometimes I miss something.
I tend to put a lot of effort into decorating and styling envelopes and postcards rather than putting in extras. I enjoy the generosity of people that do, and I will occasionally tuck an extra in if I have something on hand that I think someone will like, but it is not a big habit of mine! Don't feel obligated to tuck in for me, either.
I tend not to reply to my ratings lately! I have trouble keeping up and by the time I think, "I should do it!" a month has passed...but know I appreciate every single one!

🦉 Washi tape: I like bold patterns, metallics, owl-themed, plant-themed, feather-patterned, mail style, etc.
🦉 Used stamps. Don't feel bad if you don't decorate the envelope--I'll usually take the stamps and stickers off of these to use elsewhere!
🦉 Stickers: OWL STICKERS!! Or succulent themes! Birds, feathers, all those kind of goodies! Please no puffy stickers, though...
🦉 Teas: My favourites are green or herbal teas. I won't say no to loose leaf, either, as long as they're packaged carefully!
Okay, owls are so important to me that they get their own section. I love owls above and beyond anything and everything. I collect as many owl goodies as I can and I will also frequently send out owl-themed goods. My favourite owls are the Little Owl, Barn Owl, and the Snowy Owl. If you have ANYTHING owl-themed or you're short on something to write about--talk about owls! Draw an owl! I love owls!!
One ❌ I won't necessarily rate down for, but it's appreciated if you take note. Two ❌ is an absolute for me!!
❌❌ I am sensitive to heavy, flowery, or smokey scents due to my asthma. Eucalyptus also triggers my asthma.
❌❌ I am also allergic to most skin products! Oatmeal especially causes violent reactions in my skin, so I'd prefer not to have any skin products whatsoever...
❌❌ I also am not a fan of religious iconography of any sort. I have a bad history with religion and sometimes I have a bad reaction. Secular Christmas stuff is okay...I know "the reason for the season" but I celebrate as a tradition, not worship.
❌ I am not a fan of the taste of licorice or lemongrass in teas. I am also not really into minty teas.
❌ I'm also not huge on lollipops or sticky candies, but I wouldn't rate you down for that (I'll probably give them to my wife).
❌ I am not a big fan of white chocolate.
❌ PLEASE don't send any puffy stickers...I find that I have nowhere to put them, and they don't run through the postal machines very well.
I take pictures and scan all of the ATCs that I send out, as well as anything else! Please message me if you are worried about something having been lost in the mail...I would like to share the ATC I drew for you no matter what!! I tend to send at the last moment, but I am hoping that I can get rid of this habit after my swap hiatus.
On the other hand--if you're missing a rating from me, please reach out and let me know! Things can take an extraordinarily long time to reach me here--I've received things four months after the end of a swap. I tend to give everyone the benefit of the doubt rather than rate a 1 and so far I have not been let down!!
