I'm in my 30s, love to travel, be crafty, take pictures and explore the wonderful city I live in. I'm a vegetarian.
I recently started grad school, so I don't have as much time to swap anymore, but hopefully I can still participate in some swaps.
Some of my favorite things are reading, Hawaiian inspired items, photography, lace, rick rack, broken jewelry, Marie Antoinette, Napoleon and Josephine Bonaparte, fairy tales, dala horses, pretty soaps, peonies, gardenias, botanical and other scientific illustrations, and Victorian-era inspired items. I collect photo ACEOs/ATCs and postcards. Lately, I've also gotten into young adult books. Some YA favorites are the Hunger Games Vampire Academy, Darkest Powers, and Hex Hall and Hallowed.
I love pretty much all animals, but especially sea horses, peacocks, jellyfish, birds, wombats and cats and dogs.
I LOVE French themed things - anything from France, things written in French, etc. I also love all things Alice in Wonderland, especially the Tenniel illustrations. One super wishlist item is a copy of Alice in French and English in a bilingual edition (printed in the same book). I would happily do a private swap for this.
My favorite colors are aqua and pink. I also like red, purple, jewel toned colors. I love the combo of red/aqua and black/white.
Favorite art includes the Dutch masters like Vermeer, impressionist painters like Monet, art deco, art nouveau, Mucha, Lewis Carroll's photographs, Annie Liebovitz, Dorothea Lange, and vintage Tiffany, Cartier, Lalique for amazing jewelry.
I am open to private swaps for postcards or whatever!
I always send my swaps on time and I always rate fairly. Swaps should be fun and not a hassle! I believe in quality over quantity and would much rather have one decent item than a bunch of dollar store items.
You do not need to send me extras to receive hearts, although they are appreciated! I don't know how much I am into the hearts system, but I always give hearts when I can tell you have put care into what you send (like actually reading my profile), not just if I like it. I always aim for hearts when sending my swaps out, but I understand we all have different tastes.

I read a lot. Like a book a day a lot when I can. I love a lot of genres, but mostly YA and mystery. Some general favorites are Harry Potter, anything by Neil Gaiman or Richard Brautigan, craft books, A Prayer for Owen Meany, Everything is Illuminated, Hunger Games series, anything by Richelle Mead, Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache series, anything by Kelley Armstrong, the Unearthly series
making soap and bath products, making jewelry (semi-precious), crocheting, sewing. I'd like to learn how to knit and do more paper crafts
I also British candies and would love to try new kinds. I love tea, especially black tea. Green and fruit teas are also okay. I also love hot chocolate. Please - No Swiss Miss hot chocolate or US Lipton's tea! I like trying different local specialties.
I love postcards from all over the world! It's a longshot, but I will love you forever if you send me postcards from anywhere in Africa, Central or South America or any other "rare" country. I also love landscapes from your area, US state flower cards, cute animals, UNESCO sites, ancient sites, European views. I also like recipe postcards (other languages are fine!), map cards. I prefer my postcards unwritten in an envelope whenever possible because of damage, but no problem if you can't send that way.
Store bought cards only please! I also prefer to not receive postcards with perforated edges from postcard books.
Sorry if this sounds obvious, but please do not send me torn or damaged cards. I have gotten some really damaged cards (in envelopes!) and it's just not fun to receive junk. Please only send me something you would like to get too.
State cards I need: North Dakota, Rhode Island

I also like regional and of course international maps.

* Dollar store items unless part of the swap terms
* rooibos tea
* coffee flavored anything * religious items from any religion * seed beads, pony beads
