⋆ I am a responsible swapper; I rate and send promptly. Please message me if there are any problems (postage due, damaged mail, possibly lost mail, etc.).

Always looking to trade for postage.

A little about me:
I love cats, food, and traveling. I currently work at a Halloween costume/lingerie and hosiery company. I like learning about other cultures and regions so if you don't know what to write in a swap, tell me something about your local area! It'll probably be added to my long-list of things to do when traveling. :)

I'm trying to get back into traditional art, especially watercolor. You can see some of my old ATCs and other art here. Normally I do digital art.

Likes:

(Honestly, you can skip this section. I like a lot of things...)

⋆ my favorite themes include: cats, outer space, Japan, Alice in Wonderland, Studio Ghibli, Moomin, fairytale, pin-up, illustrations, mythology, science
⋆ assorted things I like: ABBA, the Golden Gate Bridge, cats, fountain pens, Flow magazine, pretty stickers, hot air balloons, graphic novels/comic books, sakura (cherry blossoms), patterned bandages, aerogrammes/postalettes, typewriters, trains, mountains, Japanese/Taiwanese washi tape, wax seals, calligraphy, mail art, watercolors, long staircases, architecture and design, blackout poetry, FriXion pens, Gelly Roll pens, cute/soft stuffed toys
⋆ I don't take offense easily and I like puns, sarcasm, satire, parody, and generally offensive humor.

Postcard Info:

⋆ If I'm in a swap for naked postcards, I'd love a tourist postcard from your area with a nice message! I prefer tourist view cards written and stamped from place of origin (postcards sent while on vacation are my favorite).
⋆ Likes for unwritten/blank postcards: Inge Look, gotochi, neat postmarks and stamps (one the outside of the envelope), illustrated cards, vintage travel poster, maxi cards
⋆ Specific postcard wishlists/favorites: one and two

Things I Can Always Use:

⋆ unused postage
⋆ envelopes bigger than 4" x 6"

Dislikes:

⋆ religious paraphernalia/sentiment
⋆ random junk/loose bits and scraps of paper
⋆ ephemera
⋆ dystopian novels with romance in them
⋆ friendship books/label bags/etc.

Favorite Books:

Calvin and Hobbes, Chew (comic book), The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, anything by Terry Pratchett

Favorite Crafts:

I love altered/upcycled art and I would love to receive any well-made craft. I am a huge fan of watercolor art, letterpress, silkscreening, and mail art.

Comment: Hi Fiona! The pc may not be perfect but it is still beautiful! I can see how these trees can make a short person feel shorter! LOL! I would be right there with you - even standing with my family I feel like a shrub among trees! LOL! Thanks for the giggle! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Thank you very much for the Death Valley card. I should have made the day trip when I lived in Vegas and the flowers were in awesome bloom.
Response: Oh wow, I'd heard there are rare flower blooms sometimes but I haven't heard about it since I found out about it. I would definitely love to see that one day, though!

Comment: Thank you Fiona, love the clear stickers and ALWAYS have a use for washi tape. Hope you aren't being choked out by all the smoke from fires, we have a bit here but not too bad. Good luck on your travels - sounds like you have a GREAT start - I want to go to Norway!
