About Me

After I finish all my swaps I will be leaving swap-bot for awhile. I don't know how long, but I would love to keep in contact with the cool people I met here - mailartandmusic.tumblr.com I just sorta need to get back to the reason I love snail mail.

PLEASE NOTE!!!! I am in a weird process of being in between homes at the moment so all my mail is being sent to my mom's address! I will rate as soon as I receive it, I pinky promise!

Also I WILL be moving to Germany by August just as a note in case future things get crazy! If I do end up moving to Germany I will try to stop participating in swaps (Type 2/3) a month before until I get settled just so that you don't have to wait a year+ to get rated!

Hi! I'm Courtney Film loving, hot chocolate drinking, music recommending, cat befriending, trash collecting, art making, deep conversing, photo taking, book reading, mailbox checking, bus traveling, long skirt wearing, junk food eating plant killer - but not on purpose!

Favorite Music

Makers of the Dead Travel Fast / Quadron / Erykah Badu / Amy Winehouse / Tyler, the Creator / Old Kanye West / Thao With the Get Down Stay Down / Modest Mouse / Mayer Hawthorne / Lauryn Hill / Yuna / Drake / Frank Ocean / Miguel / Little Dragon / Toro Y Moi / Fiona Apple / Freelance Whales / Simon & Garfunkel / Kendrick Lamar / Melody Gardot / Norah Jones / The Tallest Man on Earth / Andreya Triana / Lana Del Ray / Sade / Jose James / A$AP Rocky / the Collection / Fleetwood Mac / etc... Seriously. I love music! Give me a couple good music recommendations and it is ENTIRELY LIKELY that I will give you a heart!

Favorite Crafts

Plush toys, jewelry, random artsy trash stuff. I have also been really into zines and making button pins! I'm seriously down with any craft and I am lucky enough to work at an art museum so I can constantly try out different things, but making things out of "found objects" is my first love.

Favorite Movies

Amelie!! Moonrise Kingdom I'm A Cyborg, but That's Okay Edward Scissorhands V for Vendetta Breakfast at Tiffany's Delicattesen Monty Python Holy Mountain Tideland Spirited Away Cash Back The Breakfast Club The Addams Family Girl, Interrupted Anything Tim Burton or Jean Pierre Juenet or Jean Luc Goddard.


I like a lot of things! (And even if I don't like it I can probably find someone to give it to that would be super pleased with it!!! ) So here are my likes: ♥ I like snacks (without nuts preferably) ♥ I LOVE music recommendations! LOVE THEM. ♥ My favorite colors at the moment are golden yellow, forest green, and navy blue! They are just so deep! I love colors that you can get lost in! ♥ I love film photography, films in general. ♥ Hot chocolate or Chai tea ♥ Vintage stuff ♥ studs (earrings) ♥ street art stickers ♥ quirky films ♥ tarot cards ♥ Handmade items! ♥ Incense! Cones or sticks! ♥ Also I love things with cats on them:) ♥ long skirts, ♥ scarves, ♥ blush, ♥ nail polish, ♥ things of that nature:) Sorry if this isn't helpful, but seriously if you put it in a package and I can tell you spent time on it I will be bound to like it! I just find it so ridiculous to be picky with things you get... I am incredibly grateful when people send me anything!


∆ Cards Against Humanity ∆ Illuminati Card Game ∆ Long letters! ∆ Chocolove ♥ ∆ Weird old postcards:) ∆ Newspapers clippings written in other languages! ∆ Anything effort was obviously put into!


These are some amazing swappers I have had the pleasure of receiving something from!

@porcelain72 - I have had the luck of sending to her and receiving from her multiple times and it is always so amazing! She has a very warm heart and I think that comes through in all her swaps:)

@trixieshakewell - First of all let me say she has an amazing taste in music and she is also supppeeerrrrr talented with like everything. She's also incredibly kind and did I mention she has an incredible taste in music?

Things I Have to Offer!

Button pins and t-shirts galore!

Records/vinyls - My second job is at a record store and our bargain bins are off the chain!

Comment: Although late, the computer game looks fun! Thanks for sending, and for the buttons~!
Response: I have pictures of the swap that I sent and I will be sending a new one out. I'm sorry you didn't get this, but I will be resending and I contacted you 12 days after the sent date to see if you received. I'm sorry again you didn't get this. 6.24.13 I resent the 19th after seeking counsel from other members about what to do about this.Sorry, I should've let you know! It should be there shortly and whenever you're ready to see them I have pictures of both. 6/25/2013 I was informed today that your parcel was returned with postage due. I have pictures and I will be sending it in the same envelope so that you can see. I will be remailing it when this weekend, since I don't live where I get my mail. Thanks 6-28-2013 Instead of calling me a liar you could've just asked me how I got the pictures. The place where I receive my mail is where my mother lives (as written in my profile) so I asked her to take a picture for me when she called me and told me that I had three letters and parcels returned with postage due. I don't lie and you will see that when you receive the second package I sent with the date marked on it asking for the postage that was due.

Comment: I really enjoyed your list of songs. There are so many beautiful pieces there that I came to like. I need to go over the list of songs again to remember the title exactly, but one of the songs (especially the video) made me laugh. I don't know why, but I it felt like a really well done commercial haha. Thank you for the swap :)! I really enjoyed having you as my partner.
