I'm Colorado born and raised, an expert daydreamer, and I hustle like crazy.
Random things that make me happy: typewriters, shades of green, gems/crystals/geology, Bill Murray, outer space/galaxies/stars, 3D images, vintage postage stamps, otters, the Royal Family, Chip-n-Dale, cacti (cactuses?), Gudetama, sparkly things, airmail, puffy stickers.
I never thought neon would make a comeback after the 1980s, but I'm glad it did. Especially neon red. :)
Good Mail Days are the best! I write thick letters and stuff them into colorful envelopes. I've been a member of the Letter Writer's Alliance for years. Let me know if you're looking for a new pen pal. :)
I don't get bored. I was an only child and developed the ability to entertain myself. In those rare moments when I'm not at the office, I can be happy doing nothing.
I love cooking and read cookbooks like they are novels.
It's hard to offend me in swaps--I'm fine with crazy, weird images and curse words...I'm fine with Kawaii and baby chihuahuas. One thing that does "offend" me a bit: terrible spelling and grammar in swap descriptions. I tend to pass on swaps that are a grammatical mess.
Dream pop, 1980s, 1990s R&B, British soul, classic rock, oldies, mariachi, old school hip hop, Motown, all those classic songs you'd sing out loud on a road trip, and any music that sounds a little spacey.
I'm also into podcasts and talk radio, especially when I'm driving around town on errands or taking longer road trips.
Edward Scissorhands, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Lost in Translation, Drive, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, West Side Story, The Other Guys.
I miss "nice" comedies like You've Got Mail.
I watch a ton of documentaries. I dunno how that fact would ever play into a swap. Maybe it says something about my personality? Maybe suggest one for me check out?
My favorite TV shows are mindless and easy. They help me to de-stress..my day job stressful and can make my brain hurt.
I love that primetime game shows are back!
Some shows I'm hooked on: Terrace House, Ink Master, The Rookie, Shark Tank, Top Chef, 90 Day Fiancé.
I don't watch Food Network much anymore: too much Guy Fieri. I miss Anthony Bourdain roaming around eating things.
Religious and "Country Kitchen" themes, kiddie/reward/Dollar Tree stickers, and powdered drink mixes are not my thing. I'd be bummed to receive something that's used, dirty, completely thoughtless, covered in pet hair, heavy with the smell of cigarettes..
My worst habit might be obsessively buying supplies. I'm terrible about using my stash...I'm sure it's because I have zero craft supply organizational skills.
I tried making ATCs. I failed. But I do like making zines, and I hope they'll become trendy again.
No-rules creative journaling suits me. Big photos, ephemera, lots of washi, metallic pens..
