About Me

hi. i'm amanda from pittsburgh, pa.

i'm a graphic designer. i make lots of stuff. i like diy. i play a synth. i have 4 hamsters.

Favorite Music

rock. electro-rock. synthy stuff. distorted guitars. keyboards. dancey. fun. loud. female fronted. industrialish.

thestart. garbage. brand new. sleigh bells. the kills. thursday. thrice. manchester orchestra. deftones. black light burns. the dandy warhols. sainthood reps. ladyhawke. the birthday massacre. natalia kills. yeah yeah yeahs. no doubt.

i love mix tapes/cds/playlist trades if we have similar music tastes. or just sending single song recommendations!

i like

zines. mix cds. stickers. fake flowers. patterned paper. black and white. turquoise/light blue. cities. abandoned buildings. incense. aliens/futuristic/outerspace. heels. lightning bolts. stars, hearts. roadtrips. collage, mixed media stuff. "vintage" things (actually vintage or not - doesnt matter)

cheap jewelry. rhinestones. charms. no cheap earrings though, irritates my ear holes too much :(

cuteness. things with faces that don't actually have faces in real life. kawaii.

strawberries. candles. washi tape. scrapbooking stuff. little hair clips. synths/keyboards. studs/spikes. postcards from your town.

kitties. panda bears (fave animal). bunnies.

your art. basically anything handmade.

i dont like.... disney related stuff, kiddie cartoons, anime, tea/coffee, hot cinnamon flavored or scented things, sports.

Favorite Movies/TV

almost famous, eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, scott pilgrim, josie and the pussycats.

parks and recreation, daria, the simple life, portlandia, don't trust the b in apt 23.

etc, etc, etc...

if you haven't received something from me for a swap, message me... it probably just got lost in the mail and i'll send you another one. i would never "flake" on anyone and if it's going to be sent out late, i will make sure to let you know.

and if you're sending a postcard, feel free to write on and send it 'naked'.

Comment: Belated thank you for the beautiful, fan-wielding Jetoy Choo Choo card and floral postage, Amanda! It is one I had never before seen, and I love it :3 I also appreciate the hilarious kawaii cat and bear stickers you included. No shame in being a night owl :) Some of my favorite times to write (journaling or correspondence) is in the wee hours of the morning. Hope you are having a good weekend! (Just for future swaps, please don't forget to write the swap name -- I was grateful that this was from a Jetoy-themed swap and not the sender's choice postcard ones, so it was easy to find :)

Hey.. this is kinda random, but I totally remember you from postcardx back in the day! This is Carolyn C. from Los Angeles. If you're interested in writing or doing a private swap on here, let me know. It would be cool to hear from you. =)

squince on May 23, 2014:

Thank you for the postcard, darling! LOVE the kitty cat card AND the stickers! <3 <3 <3 Let me know if you ever want to swap again!

kittyhahahotbot on Jan 17, 2014:

Oh gurlfriend you need some colour:)

Im your partner for the Cat swap:))))))

Goldfoxxe on Jul 25, 2011:


I am glad you loved your panda box! And I agree, we should swap again soon : ) I've got copies of the singular issue of my zine floating around somewhere which I wanted to send you, but I have no idea where I put the extras!

madmadge on Aug 1, 2010:

I love your zine. I have been thinking that it would be nice to have photoshop. I collaged mine and then color scanned it. I have received one zine so far, from comfits actually. Looking forward to seeing what techniques the others use. That was part of my motivation for doing the swap. To get new ideas!

comfits on Jul 24, 2010:

Okay...this is some crazy stuff!!! Two years ago (pretty much exactly!...July 23) we did our zine trade on etsy. I signed up to Swap-bot on the 17 and 5 days later...you signed up! Then...I ended up getting you as a partner for the Zine Swap on here. Amazingly, you remembered me & thankfully I didn't send you the same zine from 2 years ago. As many of us crafty folk as there are here on the magical interweb...it's still a small, rad world :]
