⋆ 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.).
A little about me:
I'm from California and I love cats, food, and traveling. I currently work at a Halloween costume company (we do lingerie/hosiery for off-season stuff, LOL). 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. If you have any paint brush/palette recommendations, let me know! You can see some of my old ATCs and other art here. Normally I do digital art.
⋆ 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.
⋆ If I'm in a swap for naked postcards, I'd love a tourist postcard from your area with a nice message! I generally collect unwritten non-tourist postcards unless I'm in a swap that specifies otherwise.
⋆ 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 sent while on vacation are my favorite).
⋆ unused postage
⋆ envelopes bigger than 4" x 6"
⋆ religious paraphernalia/religious sentiment
⋆ random junk/loose bits and scraps of paper
⋆ ephemera (not technically a dislike, just that I have too much and I can't use them quick enough)
⋆ dystopian novels with romance in them
⋆ friendship books/label bags/etc.
Calvin and Hobbes, Chew (comic book), Moribito (series), The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, anything by Terry Pratchett
