⋆ 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.).

January 2021: I’m slowly getting back into swapping. I’m open to private swaps of almost any kind and can offer destashes, postcards, or handmade ATCs/digital art. I would also love to exchange recipes or mail art and letters as well, maybe even makeup/skincare.

I collect art of my original character Tlaloc and may be up for an art trade.

A little about me:
I love cats, food, reading, and traveling. 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 someday. :)

I jump between hobbies a lot as I dabble in different crafts and like learning new things. Lockdown has me cooking a lot, working on my makeup and skincare routine, and playing my latest videogame obsession Genshin Impact.

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

Likes:

(Honestly, you can skip this section. I like a lot of things, am easily pleased, and appreciate any kind of mail I receive.)

⋆ my favorite themes include: cats, outer space, Japan, 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 ⋆ I don't take offense easily and I like puns, sarcasm, satire, parody, and sometimes 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 (on 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:

⋆ anything religious
⋆ 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), anything by Terry Pratchett, books about food (science) or textiles/fashion

Favorite Crafts:

I love altered/upcycled art and I would love to receive any well-made craft including ATCs, mail art, crochet, mixed media art of all kinds, or even your personally created recipe (written down), etc. I am a huge fan of watercolor art, letterpress, and silkscreening as I used to do those myself.

Favorite Videogames:

Rune Factory, Professor Layton, Touch Detective, Pokemon, Genshin Impact

Favorite Stationery Brands:

Sakura of Japan, mt Japan, Pilot, Cavallini & Co., Papaya, Rifle Paper Co., Paperchase, Chronicle Books, Q-Lia, Mind Wave, Green-Inspired, Paper Source, Punch Studios, Moleskine
