About Me

my birthday is October 12th! Birthday cards will probably get you extra brownie points :D

I'm a 25 year old body piercer from northwest Indiana. I've been married to the love of my life, Jon, for two years. Our anniversary is May 25th. We don't have any kids yet, but we expect to start a family in the very near future! We have two dogs, a blue heeler named Shortee and Dolly Parton, a chihuahua. I'm atheiest, so please, nothing religious unless it is kitschy or tattoo-related (so, a Virgin Guadalupe would be cool.. a Hello Kitty-as-Virgin Guadalupe is cooler!)

Favorite Books

Anything by Joyce Carol Oates... particular favorites include Foxfire (of course), We Were the Mulvanneys, and The Tattooed Girl.

Favorite Crafts

I'm a HUGE papercrafter.. scrapbooking and card making are my favorites. I like to use found pieces of paper and altered photos the most.

I also like to sew, just as long as it is a forgiving project (i.e., curtains, bags, and intentionally funny-looking stuffed animals.)

I like making soap, too!



lowbrow art

tattoo art

Hello Kitty




anything gambling-related.. I love Texas Holdem especially!



body piercings

birds - owls and peacocks in particular



dogs and puppies

monsters and scary things

all things Halloween


horror, especially Leatherface (thus my screen name).. also Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, the Crypt Keeper, etc.


tote bags

pink flamingos


hair accessories


fruits and vegetables



snacks! tasty ones!


anything eco-friendly: we compost, grow our own food, don't use plastic bags, etc.

old country music

And weird stuff.


earrings... Not so much a dislike, but I have stretched ears (1") and I cannot wear post, hook or clip on earrings.




vampires (except Bella Lugosi as Dracula)




hate of any kind

drugs (you never know...)

religious things (read in my About Me section) JUST A NOTE: Anything that has a cross or Jesus fish on it, says "In God We Trust," etc. IS CONSIDERED RELIGIOUS. DO NOT SEND IT. I will rate you poorly, especially now that I have a disclaimer on my page....


knee socks & toe socks

and all things Twilight.. sorry, Twilight lovers!

Favorite Music

I like a little bit of everything! A few of my particular favorites are the Misfits (Danzig-era, not the new crap), Danzing (obviously), Kings of Leon, Elvis, The Creepshow, The Black Keys, We Were Promised Jetpacks, The XX, Dashboard Confessional, Rancid, Detroit Cobras, Mumford and Sons...

I like old country and outlaw country. I'm talking about Hank Williams, Hank Williams Jr., Hank III, Patsy Cline, Imelda May, Dolly Parton (I have a portrait of her tattooed on my forearm! Let me know if you want to see it! lol), Johnny Cash, Those Darlins, etc. NOT NEW POP COUNTRY. No Faith Hill, no Toby Keith, not even Garth Brooks. The only newer band I can tolerate is Rascal Flatts, as long as the song isn't depressing.

As far as Pop goes, I like Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, La Roux, and yeah, I'll say it.. Britney Spears.. but only if its the new, trashy, dancy stuff.

Food & Drinks

There is no food or drink that I do not like. Like, seriously. NONE. I don't like salty candy.. that's about it. I'm a vegetarian, but if I enter a food-related swap and someone sends me something with meat or a meat-product in it, my husband will GLADLY eat it :)

I would LOVE to receive...


Charms of all kinds: plastic, glass, metal, clay, etc. People, animals, buildings, shapes, etc. Not so much pendants, as I am VERY choosy in what kind of jewelry I wear, unless it fits with something I like (owls, skulls, tattoo stuff, crafty things, etc.) More so charms that I can use in crafts. The weirder, the better!

Personalized address labels! I don't like to make them myself, but one of the best swaps I ever received included personalized address labels. The swapper took bits of info about me from my profile (a pink flamingo, a cute owl, the bride of Frankenstein, etc.) and it is one of my favorite things I ever received!

Business cards, stickers, or promotional items from tattoo shops in your neighborhood (ESPECIALLY if they aren't in the USA!)

Cute origami!

Friendship bracelets! I can't figure out how to make them.. I prefer earth tones or jewel tones, but I would love any of them.

amigurimi! I cannot crochet or knit.

Comment: WOWIE Heather! Its so great to have received from you!! I'm in love with this swap!! You did such a great job on everything;) I recently took a class on Papel Picados, and then you sent some!! I'm wanting to do skull ones;) I love your shrines, how neat that you got to display them! I'm also jealous that you got to go to such a big event that sold all kinds of DOTD goodies! I went to our museum to check it all out but they didn't have much for sale. Although, I did pick up a female wire skelly so now she has a mate! Thanks for all the other goodies, they are all great choices;) I love the lil pumpkins, that is a great idea~!! I'm stealing it:P Thanks so much for everything, you rocked this swap!

Comment: Thank you for such a nice swap. I can just see turning those big red buttons into magnets. The vintage ribbon has a different feel to it doesn't it? Thanks for sending.

heliogal rated for Fun Halloween Surprise on Oct 9, 2010
Comment: Thank you so much for a wonderfully thoughtful package! I just love the candle! It has an incredible fragrance. The Halloween kitchen set is so cute and I love the colors. Your pumpkin goodie bags are so adorable and it was nice to include the instructions. The sweet owl scrabble tile pendent is the first I've seen and I'm so thrilled you included it. I hope you have a fun-filled Halloween!!
Response: You are so welcome! I'm glad you like everything! Happy Halloween!!! :D
Comment: Your package was waiting on my front step when I arrived home from work yesterday. WOW! You put together such an AWESOME package for me, starting with that cute orange bird dish towel! I kept pulling so many neat things from the box - - I am definitely going to have fun baking up a storm. The apple pie spice and the honey - very nice; they'll both be used. The apple spice says you can use it in any recipes that call for cinnamon and I make a lot with pumpkin, so I'm going to try it in there first. Loved the Gooseberry patch cookbook on the bottom of the box too. I've seen their recipe books but have never bought any before. Thank you, thank you for looking at my profile and putting together such a wonderful package for me. If I could give you lots of hearts, I would!!

Wait, I should clarify a little bit...I am a Hoosier, but I am not currently living in Indiana. I was born and raised in Brownsburg (suburb on Indy), but I've lived here in AZ since I was 14! I still consider Indiana "home" though. :)

Hellotheremary on Oct 19, 2010:

AHH! I'm your partner for "the little things" and damn you're cool. I promise to make this a swap you're going to LOVE.
