I apologize to any partners that have not received a swap that was due 4/21 or alter. I've had some very unexpected circumstances come up in my life that have prevented me from getting out my swaps, but I fully intend on getting them out to you as soon as I possibly can. Thank you everyone for understanding!
I'm Ami. I'm a junior in college at St. Ed's in Austin, TX. I study graphic design and I love to be creative and messy. I work for a local web design company and play lots of video games and I'm also dating a gamer, so games are a big part of my life. I love going to concerts, seeing movies, and just hanging out with friends.
I'm not a religious person but different world religions fascinate me. I'm a big "seeker of truth" in history and religion, and love finding out little known facts about either.
Little Known Facts about ME?
I drink soy milk because I like the way it tastes better than regular milk.
I finally bought my own espresso machine because it was less expensive than the $100+ dollars I was spending on Starbucks each month.
I played the flute in high school just because I wanted to be like "Alan" from the show Sailor Moon.
I don't wear color. Never. It's not that I don't like color, it's just that I'm attracted to the black/white/gray stuff more.
My adorable Welsh Corgi is named "Jae." This is short for "Judd Nelson" because my roommate and I felt guilty for getting a puppy with out our third roommate's permission. So we let him name the dog. Boys. sigh
I add Cayenne pepper to my Mocha's because spicy chocolate is like heaven in my mouth.
-The BEST things you can send are anything local from where YOU live. I don't have the money to fulfill my traveling dreams YET, so I love to experience other cultures through swapping.
Kinder Chocolate, or ANY kind of chocolate. Milk chocolate or Hazelnut and chocolate are my favorite varieties.
Coffee, Coffee, and more COFFEE
Tea also, but not as much as coffee
Anything dark or macabre
Anything weird, abnormal, or quirky
Things that make me say "whoa."
Anything old, vintage, or antique.

I'm a big fan of mixed media, altered art and collaging.
I also love do it yourself clothing and accessories, but I'm not the best at making them myself. Doesn't stop me from trying though. :)
I'm always always glad to receive things for collaging and altered art. Most of my art is vintage/old looking so really colorful/cute/playful stuff will be probably be passed on to fellow swappers. :)
My loves are:
-Old lace and Ribbons
-Buttons & Watch Parts, and other flat-ish doodads.
I love love love receiving jewelry, but (I'm sorry) I'm reeaally picky. :x
Likes: Silver/black, Gothic or Lolita, Vampires or vampire inspired items, vintage looking items (but not GOLD please), red gems, purple.
Dislikes: Gold anything (I can never match it with my clothes unless it's steampunk, I will FIND a way to make steampunk stuff work), really minimal/tiny stuff, pearls, super colorful stuff.
