re: me ---

updated 4/4/10~

** if you are missing a swap from me, please PM me before rating; i always send my swaps on time & will be happy to re-send!!

also, i promise to always rate as soon as i receive your package, so i'll PM you first if i haven't received or if there's an issue of any kind!!

if you send me something that i don't care for, or think someone else will love more than i could, i will probably re-swap it. i also re-use packaging. feel free to do the same with the things i've sent you, just don't pass my hand-crafted artwork off as your own or alter it in any way please, and i'll offer the same courtesy for you.**


i like to paint, write, listen to music, watch movies or tv series (i adore stand-up comedy!) on dvd, go to clubs, spend time with my boyfriend & my son. i am not into politics, and rarely watch the news. i have five mice, they're the perfect pet for me.

some of my previous swaps (do NOT click if you are in a swap where i'm sending to you & you want to be surprised.)

++ i'm always up for a private trade! pm me if you're interested after reading my profile!

re: art ---


i will try any medium once! i love watercolors more than anything, but i also enjoy (to varying degrees): acrylic mediums & texturing, cards, jewelry, glass art, collage, charcoal drawings, etc. i LOVE getting art supplies from countries outside the USA - my favourite so far are my watercolors from switzerland.

STYLES: i like modern, abstract, conceptual, anime, hand drawn, line art, minimalist, impressionistic, collage, advertisements, some vintage in small amounts, gritty textures, steampunk, etc.

i'm not so fond of victorian, humorous art, americana, anything "cute", woodwork, leatherwork, knitting, quilting, embroidery, sewing patterns, cross stitch, hairbows, dolls/teddybears, angels, animal print items, birds, plastic canvas, felt, stuffed things (animals, plushies), disney, etc.


COLOURS: blues & greens & browns. i like muted colours, dark colours, bold colours. i'm not a fan of primary & secondary (blue green red) but i do enjoy small bits of the bright flashy colours like hot pink, orange, etc.

re: faves ---

ARTISTS: salvador dali, jackson pollock, vincent van gogh, william blake

MOVIES: psych thrillers, anything with mark ruffalo or jude law, ghost world, fight club, girl interrupted, anything with john cusack, romy & michelle's high school reunion, anything with ryan philippe, save the last dance, primer, sweet november, dead poets society. hackers, boondock saints.

TELEVISION: not big on tv, but do enjoy: friends, weeds, jericho, heroes, & grey's anatomy. i also really enjoy some stand-up comedians like eddie izzard, dane cook, & my new love - daniel tosh.

SCENTS & FLAVOURS: scents: anything berry, fruit, citrus (especially orange), anything ocean or water, mint, NOTHING musky (it'll make me sneeze!). flavours: strawberry, orange, grape, spice, pomegranate - not big on coconut or watermelon.

HOLIDAY: i LOVE valentines day. i used to work in an art & craft supply store, and i really enjoyed seeing all the red, pink & purple stuff, especially the glittery things! i really enjoy everything about this holiday!!


THEMES: i enjoy art, paint, cupcakes, sushi, music, djs (especially headphone/turntables) & remixes, computers, web geekery, absolut vodka ads, high fashion ads, old & abandoned buildings, autumn, stars, roads, polaroids of anything, black eyeliner, glitter, lomography & photography, confetti, gardens, glowsticks, some poetry (but nothing that rhymes!), fireworks, people who are passionate & openminded, rain, road trips, scarves, sharpies, sketchbooks, starbucks, thunderstorms, glade strawberries & cream candles, neon signs, sunflowers, tetris, valentine's day, wire wrapping...

i absolutely fall in love with words.

re: likes/dislikes ---

KAWAII: i love kawaii anything!!! i'm not picky! my favourite themes are the san-x sabo kappa, food with faces (realistic or drawn), toast, cupcakes, stars, & tofu. i also really like the korean kawaii, and i collect lucky star papers (trying to fill a pretty big jar with the folded stars!).

LIKES: i drink black tea, & some herbal tea. no green tea. i enjoy an occasional cup of chai, and anything MINT i simply ADORE. i love post-it note pads, small containers, boxes or tins.

i love bath & body products like soaps, salts, body gel, handmade or unique (please, no glycerin - it's SO pretty but it makes me SO itchy!!!), eysehadow & nail polish in any color & i love brands like LUSH, urban decay, hard candy, sephora, philosophy, bath & body works, burts bees. i'm dying to try a "sugar scrub" - they look & sound so delicious. i have way too much lotion & i find i rarely use it (tho i should!)

i love dark chocolate, caramel, pecan pralines (the sugary kind, not the chewy kind) & gummi bears! i love white chocolate with cookies, coconut or citrus flavours!!

i like magazines like zink & juxtapoz, metro.pop & elle, any somerset publications, real simple, martha stewart, etc.

the only jewelry i wear is bracelets; either the very chunky & wild kind, or the dangly swishy kind! :)

i collect the little studio g clear acrylic rubber stamps that michaels sells for $1. they're adorable and so easy to store!!

for my different art assemblage/craft projects, i like/collect glass pieces (stained or dichro), craft punches, patterned paper pieces, glitter (super fine or shapes) & confetti, rhinestones, charms, stickers, ribbons, brads, embellishments, paper flowers, atc blanks, ink pads, clear stamps, book/magazine pages (especially those with french writing), odd bits of papers, wire, metals, rusty things, gemstone stickers, eyelets, labels, tags, keys, gears & motors, electronic parts, circuit boards, etc.


DISLIKES: i probably wouldn't like to receive any incense or anything vanilla scented (no candles, especially; i'm allergic), recipes, bookmarks, stuffed dolls/animals, or knitted/crocheted items unless it's a scarf, dollar store knick-knacks, disney or diddl, cigarette smoke, sloppy handmade items.

re: wishlist ---

WISHLIST: i enjoy handmade things like chunky bracelets, paintings or collages, microscope slides, small 3d art, soap or sugar scrubs, coasters, matchboxes & whimsy jars (pretty or kawaii) & ATCs.

i love swapping for embellishments or ephemera, lucky parcels, kawaii, anything from the handmade list above, or anything from my wishlist below:

  • lucky star origami papers
  • silicon bento dividers or other bento accessories
  • anything cupcake or DJ themed
  • clear rubber stamps (like the tiny ones from michaels for $1)
  • glitter or confetti
  • book pages written in french
  • metal filigree

i would adore something from or inspired by my etsy favorites!

Thank you very much for the big package of computer stationary I received a few weeks ago. I didn't have your name [real or swap-bot] but I guess I sent a note to your mother. Anyway, they are wonderful and I'm already using them.

I haven't seen your profile page before and I love the photos you're postsed, including your portrait.

Thank you so much for the adorable goat ATC! What a cutie and chewing on a bouganvilla, hee. I just saw a lot of those flowers in Maui. Your envelope was equally lovely and I bet the mail people enjoyed seeing it too. This is a great addition to my goat ATC collection that I now have! hugs, Sue
