About Me

i'm a nerd. i work in a cute office as a social and event coordinator and love my job. i am originally from pa/nj and i think i will always be a jersey girl at heart, but i have lived in portland, oregon for about the past six years and i am completely in love with this city. i share a cute little duplex with my boyfriend, my cat (milo), and a little dog (minature pinscher - ellie). i am so into my pets that i even have their paw prints tattooed to my wrists. i wear a size XL or XXL in ladies.

i am a newbie and just getting used to this whole swapping thing, but i would love to do private one on one swaps, so message me if you are interested.

things i like

i love crafts, baking, typewriters, taking walks in the rain, zines, coffee, make up, tattoos, etc. i can't resist a photobooth. i love trees, birds, and owls. octopi and manatees are really neat. my favorite colors are pink, yellow, teal, and i just generally am attracted to bright fun colors. i am really into retro and atomic style - clothing, art, pinups, or housewares. i just really enjoy old fashion domestic-ness and 50s style. i dream of being an old fashioned housewife, but i am too disorganized. thrift stores and yard sales are my addiction and i love getting really neat and special second hand items. i sew, screenprint (and other print making), embroider, make soap, and just generally enjoy handmade things and craftiness. my nerdy love is canning and home preservation...i love making jam! i'm also hooked on makeup... i really love to play with colors and experiment! the MAC counter is my dirty secret addiction, but i love trying new things. i really like fruity or bakery scents.

i am really excited for christmas. it's my favorite holiday. i love non-traditional and retro christmas stuff.

my bedroom has a funny red/blue robot theme. i have a pink and white craft room. the bathroom is yellow and lime green. i tend to be drawn to pink, girly kitchen stuff, but there is not nessisarily a theme of colors in my kitchen. none of these "themes" are that important, just trying to give some ideas.

i hope this helps! questions/suggestions about my profile to make it more helpful are appriciated! :)

things i don't like

i really appriciate anything you send, but here are some things you might want to know: i have too much stationary and hardly ever use it. i am allergic to strong flowery smells. i would not appriciate religious items. my ears are not peirced, so earings may not be so useful to me but i love other kinds of jewerly - particularly necklaces. i am not really into the whole kawaii/hello kitty thing.

i am vegetarian,so if we are doing a recipe swap, i would really love it if it was a meat-free recipe! :)

Favorite Music

i love 80s new wave, old 90s riot grrrl, punk, indie, swing music, old rock n roll, etc. i'm really opened on my musical tastes!

Favorite Television

supernatural, the daily show, the office, degrassi, fringe, freaks and geeks, and lots of other bad tv.

my family

"family" is a sort of vague word for me. i live 3,000 miles away from where my parents and sister live, so i have built a little alternative family of my own and i am very thankful for them! treats for the family are always appreciated!

i live with my boyfriend bryan and our dog and cat. the pets are definitely part of the family to me since children are not in my future.

bryan is a nerdy comic artist and student. he loves robots, video games, illustration, print making, reading and creating independent comics, sci fi, lucadors, dj-ing, etc.

ellie is a three year old min pin. she loves nothing more than food and cuddles. she is a size small and loves a sweater because she gets awfully cold in the winter. she is a good sport about silly costumes because she is a total ham for attention. she also loves snacks (peanut butter flavor is a favorite), things to chew on, nori (seaweed), and chasing milo. she will not play fetch or frisbee.

milo is a chubby orange cuddlebug of a cat. he loves nori as well (they both go totally insane for it) and fishy snacks. he is adorable with catnip and totally loves it. he also loves toys on a stick, my jewelry, and bouncy balls.

wish list

this is not a all inclusive list at all, i thought it might just be helpful to have a few things to help! i also love surprises!

cute buttons
aprons (vintage or handmade is a plus!)
button down cardigans in any color besides grey, black, red, or pink (XL or XXL)
makeup, nail polish, or makeup brushes (see my wist for more ideas on that)
MAC pigment samples
socks
cute, unique christmas decor or ornaments (i have a a white christmas tree this year, so I am trying to work some color and silver into the mantle and tree!)
little vintage bottle brush christmas trees! (like these:http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_HpczHo3Zmog/R1m7kP8bVII/AAAAAAAAB5A/hH8Ptl9Uj4o/s320/croppedtrees.jpg)
cooking and baking supplies
glitter
most anything handmade
embroidery thread
fun thrift store finds
coupons for restaurants
little treats for the boyfriend or pets are always nice

Hello there! I just wanted to check in with you and see if you had received my swap for the "Show Your Craft Room #2" e-swap...and also to check in with you about the "Let's Organize Our Craft Crap" swap I should have received from you. I know that things can get lost or overlooked in email, so I wanted to touch base. Please drop me a line when you return to swapbot, and I hope you are well!-m

Hi. I have tried to PM you re: the BABYCAKE Swap. I hope to hear from you soon. I would like to know if I should angel the swap? If you are working on it or just forgot to press sent please let me know. The swap deadline was Jan. 31st. I look forward to hearing from you. Hope all is well. ~Kristin

Important!

The Best Medicine: Heart Themed (USA/Canada) that you flaked on has been angeled. Since it was a holiday swap I had to find an angel I had to have it sent out before you could be rated. If for some reason, you decided to come back and make up your swaps, please contact me so you can send to the angel.
