About Me

I always feel slightly awkward writing these little about me blurbs. The art of adequate self-description eludes me.

I'm a dabbler, a scatterbrain, and endlessly curious. I adore my furbabies, and currently have one chihuahua-x, a hyperactive foxy, an old and shy black cat, and a cat that kind of came with a house I moved into. I take a lot of photographs and love playing around in photoshop (though I have an awful lot to learn). I've been drawing for years, mostly weird little characters in ballpoint pen. I'm hoping to expand my artistic horizons and I think that participating in Swap Bot will help me with that. I'm a BIG thrift shopper and I'm slowly filling my house with all sorts of retro odds and ends. I think I'm a bit of a magpie, especially for imagery.

Likes/Loves/Dislikes

I Love:

All things creepy and/or weird.

Día de los Muertos.

Steampunk.

Random imagery - I'm a big photo collector. In fact I'd love to exchange photos with other swap-bot members. I'm especially taken with strange and/or creepy imagery.

Collage Imagery and odds & ends. Which sort of relates to random imagery because I'm open to all sorts of images.

Photography - both taking photos and drooling over the photographs other people take.

ATCs - I put that interest on hold for a few years but I'm getting back into it now and would love to trade and get my collection going again.

Art in general.

Oddities and rarities - I'm quite taken with anything that's a little bit different. Be it strange found objects, weird stories, vintage tidbits, and so on.

The paranormal - whether it be real or imaginary, true ghost stories or fantasy vampires.

Fabulous fabrics and fantastic papers.

Glimpses into the lives of others.

Pretty much anything vintage/retro - Though I'm not big on the pin-up girl thing for some reason :-/

Quirky and/or handmade postcards.

Old photographs.

Shells, rocks, and minerals.

Dislikes: Kawaii, Hello Kitty, Anything along those sorts of cuteness lines. Tea.

Wish List

Photographs - yours/found/vintage. ATCs. Your art/doodles/thoughts. Old book pages. Quirky and/or weird postcards. Little stories. Children's book illustrations. Anything odd or kitsch. Fabric. Lace. Paper (esp for use in collage). Flowers. Beetles. Spiders. Butterflies. Insects in general. Curiosities and found odds and ends. All sorts of imagery.

Swapping

If you do not receive an expected swap from me please let me know before leaving feedback.

I'm relatively new to swapping. Despite being a member here for years it wasn't until recently I decided to give this all a go.

As such if I make any mistakes or you do not receive a swap from me please feel free to contact me and I will do my absolute best to sort things out.

Comment: What a wonderful postcard & one that I will treasure. How sad that this lovely building will not be able to be saved after the earthquake... I hope you have saved one for yourself to be able to treasure the memories of this landmark cathedral!

Comment: I like your strange character atc and the way you send the atc in a larger piece of paper. I like to make characters from odd pieces of things, either collage or drawn. Thank you. Kathy

Comment: Hey Paula, Your card is very cool, I love your strange woman figure. I also like the paper that you used. What kind of paper is that? Best wishes,
Response: I'm REALLY glad you liked the postcard. As for the paper, it's actually cheap cardstock from what is NZs answer to a dollar store. It's pretty good for making ATCs, though I prefer to use two layers for postcards.

Comment: I love this drawing, so unique! Handmade postcards are the very best and hand drawn ones are even more special. Happy Swapping!
Response: I'm so glad you liked the postcard. I like to make hand drawn postcards but am never sure if others will like them. So I'm super glad you're happy.

Comment: Oh my! I don't know where to begin to thank you for the awesome cards. I have been trying to get people from New Zealand to do a private swap with me. So far I have had no luck so you have no idea how excited I am with these. I'm sorry that I can only give you one heart! Thanks so much Vicky
Response: I'm so glad you like them!

Comment: I'm going to guess that you're not really addicted to the color yellow. I'm really curious to know which one isn't true though. Thanks for the funny PC. :)
Response: Sorry for the late response. The lie was about the cherries, I actually hate them. I often refer to myself as addicted to the colour yellow because I love it so much :-)
