- 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.

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.
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)
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
Anything with polka dots or damask print
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
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:
