My Art

★ Looking for Ingrid W who sent me a Pilot petit brush pen from Amazon around November 2016 and someone who sent me small envelopes from Aliexpress!
★ 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.).

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, fairytale, pin-up, illustrations, mythology, science
★ assorted things I like: 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.
★ I collect and use mint stamps.
★ Recently I've been getting into makeup. I love eyeshadows and lipsticks. The more pigmented, the better.

Postcard Info:

★ I collect blank/unwritten non-tourist postcards (if I'm in a swap for naked postcards, the message is more important than the card).
★ Likes: Nouvelles Images multiples, Inge Look, Lali riddle, gotochi, square, 3D, interesting material, neat postmarks and stamps, illustrated cards, vintage travel poster, maxi cards
★ Specific postcard wishlists/favorites: one and two
★ I prefer tourist view cards written and stamped from place of origin (postcards with a long message/sent while traveling are my favorite). These are the only naked postcards I collect.

Dislikes:

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

Favorite Books:

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

A little about me:

In case you're curious, I'm from California and I love cats, food, and traveling. I recently turned 21 and now have a full-time job so I can splurge on my stationery addiction and snail mail habits.

Thank you for the random envie that you sent me for my November AATW wishlist. Sorry I didn't thank you sooner, but my dad passed away on the 7th. Your mail really cheered me up during that time, so thank you bunches.

mgallardo68 on Nov 17, 2017:

Wonderful swap from you Fiona!!

libertylithium on Nov 10, 2017:

Thank you so much for the AATW November wishes you sent me. It was so nice to hear from you- I haven't seen you around SB for awhile but then again I did take a hiatus for over a year. Haha. I really liked the kawaii goodies and you actually sent me my first Christmas card of the season. :) Thank you very much!

kaypendragon on Nov 6, 2017:

Chocolate mousse sounds like a wonderful tradition!

mgallardo68 on Jan 21, 2017:

Love it my envie!!!! Thank you so much!!! I cannot wait to use my goodies!

kiddomerriweather on Jan 18, 2017:

Sorry for the delay. No, I've never ordered anything from there.

FeeBeeDee on Dec 23, 2016:

I love The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, too! It fascinates me. I also love Studio Ghibli. Kiki's Delivery Service was my inspiration for having my own fabric printing shop for a while! I think you would really like Firefly, and Serenity, if you haven't already seen them, directed by Joss Whedon.

kiddomerriweather on Dec 14, 2016:

OMGoodness! Thank you so much for the cat stuff/random envie for my December AATW wishlist. I'm smitten with the holographic cat stickers! They are so insanely awesome! Even more awesome is your drawing. I love when you draw things for me. You're so talented. I also love the little cat you drew on the note. I may have to do a swap with you sometime for some of your artwork (if you're up for it). I'd love to hang some your art on my wall. Have a Happy Holiday season.
