9/3: I AM STILL UNPACKING MY CRAFT ROOM AFTER A BIG MOVE AND WILL FINISH ALL PENDING SWAPS ASAP. HARASSMENT AND TAUNTING WILL NOT MOVE THIS ALONG ANY FASTER!
I am a Special Collections Librarian in the Mid-Atlantic area of the US. My husband & I live in an apartment with our big black cat.
My favorite things include vintage Pyrex, pre-1960s advertising, old postcards, Swatch watches, classic films, and Katy Keene paper dolls.
I love Walt Disney World and try to visit every year. I've also been to Disneyland in California and Tokyo Disneyland/DisneySea. My favorite character is Donald Duck and I especially love early-1980s era Epcot Center.
Art & Design: I love Art Deco, vintage illustration and advertising art, Mid-Century Modern architecture/Eames furniture, early photography, stained glass, steampunk, argyle patterns, and faux bois (i.e. fake wood patterns). Favorite artists include: Charley Harper, Shag (Josh Agle), Ansel Adams, Anne Taintor, Nut & Bee, Meomi.
Geekery: I like Kawaii and other cute Japanese inspired things like amigurumi. Particular Sanrio/San-X favorites include Nyan Nyan Nyanko, Kutusitanyanko, Chococat, DeeryLou, Tweedle Dee Dee (the bear from the '80s), Hello Kitty, the bread from Pankunchi, and the non-character hearts & rainbows they sold back in the mid-'80s. Anything that falls into the "food with a face" category makes me happy. ;) I am also a big fan of Re-Ment, the teeny-tiny boxes of things like tea sets, foods, and animals. I enjoy video games, esp. Animal Crossing & old school Nintendo. Getting something Animal Crossing related in a swap would be great!
Kinds of Things: I can't draw or sew well, so I especially like receiving anything incorporating those kinds of crafts. I love letterpress printing and would be happy to receive anything made with that process. Other things I like include magnets, purses/pouches/wallets, necklaces or pendants, pins/brooches, pencils, and notecards or postcards (more on postcards below).
Etc.: I've always been a huge fan of Snoopy & Peanuts. Paper dolls, especially Katy Keene. I'm a Turner Classic Movies addict. Disney, especially the theme parks (EPCOT!). Favorite animals include black cats, red pandas, goldfish, the abominable snowman/yeti, and the Nannerpus. Ok, those last two aren't real, but they're still awesome. ;)
I am really enjoying all of the postcard swaps here on Swap-Bot, so I thought it might be useful to put up a section for favorite kinds of postcards. I love looking through people's profiles and trying to figure out what kind of card they'd enjoy.
