About Me

- April 4- Hello hello! I've been getting messages from some of my partners saying they're getting my ATC envelopes shredded, ripped, or just open with nothing inside. I don't know if its because of the postal machines or mail workers so I'm trying to make sure I send all my envelopes as "non-machinable" and just drop them off at the post office instead of leaving them in my mailbox. If you don't receive a swap from me, please let me know and I'll resend it ASAP. Thanks! -Anastazia

Okay, well I'm Anastazia. I just finished earning my Bachelor's in Psychology. Future plans include earning my Master's in Mental Health Counseling and hopefully doing something in the military with providing services for families and combat veterans. Both of my parents were in the military, so I have traveled all over the nation, except for the Northeastern part of the U.S. I'm fairly liberal (been known to be called a 'bleeding heart' a couple of times) and proud to be that way! I really love to travel and experience different cultures and be exposed to thoughts and ways of thinking that I wouldn't normally come across. However, we haven't been able to travel anywhere lately so I mainly just stick to NatGeo, History and Discovery Channel to get my fix.

I am really big on absurb/weird stuff. From some of my favorite television shows like Strangers with Candy and The Adventures of Pete and Pete to my new infatuation with Bizarro fiction, I'm pretty much never tuned in with reality.

I'm a total pet lover and those ASPCA commericals make me cry EVERYTIME! I have 3 cats - Lou Lou, Shmooly, and Baby. They're pretty much my little kids, so they'd love if you were to send them some little toys or snacks.

Favorite Crafts

Thanks to swap-bot, I made my very first ATC about 4 months ago (December 2008) and now I'm totally addicted. It has even replaced my long time addiction with making clothing, so now I have stacks of paper on top of yards of fabric. If you want to do a personal swap for some of my fabric stash (jersey knits, kawaii, japanese,quilting,novelty prints) just contact me and we can set something up.

I still do break out the sewing machine for ATCs and I'm always trying different techniques but collage and rubberstamping is my favorite.

I do have Craft A.D.D. so I also like embroidery, crochet, and my latest try at something new - cross stitch (of the subversive kind), and jointed paper dolls.

Wish List

I really love getting suprises in my packages, and in no way am I saying if you send me a package you must send something from this list, but I have received some inquires towards what should be sent. SO here are some things that are always safe to send: - ATC supplies (scrapbooking paper, pages of out a dictionary or other book, little scraps of interesting things that are small)

  • Craft books or magazines on any subject besides knitting

  • Blank Journals or Notebooks

  • Anything pertaining to tattoos

  • Kawaii Paper Goods

  • Owls, Gnomes, Bird related things

  • Used Postage Stamps

  • Anything from your Country (other than US of course)

  • Indie CD mixes (something I won't hear on the radio)

  • Anything handmade

  • Plugs in a 0g

  • Pens in any color

  • Books you've read and want to share

  • Any Harry Potter Books

  • Note cards, bookmarks, blank postcards, stationery, pens

  • Blank Journals

  • Anything with polka dots or damask print

  • Headbands

  • Art prints

  • Handmade collages

  • Cat treats

  • Oil for my reed diffuser

  • Coloring pencils or pens

  • Picture frames of any size that I can hang on a wall (I have a wall in my bedroom that is covered with all different kinds of black picture frames. It doesn't matter what color they are originally are because I paint them all black so it looks cohesive)

-Rubber stamps (old or new) and ink pads

-Vinyl Records in playable condition (I have an extensive viny record collection of all genres that I actually do listen to)

-I wold absolutely LOVE YOU FOREVER if you were to send a jointed paper doll. I suggest using the following website to get a template and ideals: http://www.theenchantedgallery.com/paperdolls.html

Please, Don't Send

  • Coffee or tea (I don't drink either)
  • Religious items
  • Gum
  • Romance or Sci-Fi Novels
  • Magnets
  • Dishcloths
  • Very floral, pink, pastel or overall very girly themed items
  • Disney items
  • Country or Shabby Chic items

You Can't Go Wrong...

If you still don't know what to get, here are some relatively cheap and inexpensive items you can send for profile swaps or hearts:

  • Pens (gel, glitter, or just plain)
  • Pages from old newspapers,dictionaries or books
  • Interesting scraps of paper
  • Postcards
  • Notecards
  • Polymer Clay (like Fimo)
  • Watercolor set
  • Paint brushes
  • Ink Pads
  • Any kind of stationery/office supplie goods
  • A nice, long letter

This is the end, my friend

Thanks for taking the time to look at my page! If you're interested in becoming penpals (swap partners or not) just send me a message and let me know.

I am so sorry to have to ban you from the Monthly ATC Swappers group but your ratings have fallen to low as group rules states for you to be a member..I wish you the best of luck...

evieroz on Jul 17, 2009:

I see that you are back swapping again. When can I expect you to mail me my butterfly matchbox back to me? Remember, I sent you a matchbox by mistake. Was suppose to send you 2 atc instead. When I caught my mistake and messaged you you told me you had no use for a matchbox and wanted the atc's instead and you was going to send the matchbox back to me. Well, I sent you the 2 atc's and you still haven't sent me my matchbox back. That was back in April. I have messaged you and messaged you and still you will not answer any of my messages and let me know anything. I DON'T SEE HOW YOU CAN STILL SWAP WITH PEOPLE WHEN YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING. HOW MANY OTHER PEOPLE ARE YOU DISAPPOINTING?

Hi, I've been trying to rate one of the people I got a card from in the Stamped Bird ATC- I can't click on the rating box and the message says something abut it being available two weeks after the deadline. Her work was fabulous and she needs ratings to enter more swaps so I'd really like to get this done. Thanks, Lynda

cobaltgypsy on Jan 28, 2009:

We just got hit with 6 inches of ICE and another 4 inches of snow. I am snowbound, as the roads (and my car) are buried. Power lines are going down all around my town, so it's possible I'll lose power soon and will not be able to get online. Please be patient if I owe you a swap, as crews are prioritizing areas of my town, and are unsure how long it will be before they can clear the road. Thanks for understanding. blessings, Gypsy
