I haven't swapped on swap-bot in a while and am gingerly getting back into it
b 1960, live in Rhode Island USA. Work for pay as a data coordinator but my vocation is as an artist
If sending me postcards in a postcard swap, please send me viewcards or art cards. I also love flower cards. Or handmade cards that are ART--not a piece of cardboard cut from a box and sent as is. Or ad cards (such as Go Cards or Boomerang). Thank you.
Very important: because of allergies, dislikes and whatnot, in surprise/mystery/item swaps please DO NOT send the following items: jewelry, FOOD, cosmetics, any and all scented items (perfume, candles, bath stuff, potpourri, etc), child-oriented stuff, household items, religious items (my religion is best kept to myself and I don't need to be converted to anything).
ALWAYS ACCEPTED IN ITEM SWAPS: Interesting ethnic music (storebought or burned CD), art supplies (markers, funky interesting papers, fibers, buttons, unusual beads, origami papers, handmade paper, ephemera from where you live, vintage photographs or printouts of same). Someone claimed that art supplies are too broad so maybe this will help.
favorite colors: purple, teal, sapphire blue, red, rose, earth tones
I implore you--PLEASE pay attention to my dislikes--if you send me art supplies (markers, colored pencils), funky papers, postcards of any kind, used stamps, maps and newspaper pages from where you live (things unique to your area especially), stuff like that I WILL BE HAPPY, overjoyed, jumping up and down and ecstatic!
jazz standards, swing/big band, classic rock, U2, 70's, 80's music, classical. I really really really love Mozart's clarinet concerto, Tchaikovsky's 4th and 6th symphonies, baroque classical.
Don't do a lot of movies anymore but I watch a lot of documentaries and concerts via Netflix
hmmmm. my tastes tend to change. RIGHT NOW: PBS' Secrets of the Dead, most episodes of NOVA, Scientific American, CSI New York, Law & Order Criminal Intent, Globe Trekker, Art 21, Simply Ming, Everyday Food, Criminal Minds (early years)
collage/mixed media, altered floppy disks, art journaling. If it has to do with paper, I have probably some interest. I would also like to get into mosaics. I also collect dust bunnies, stamps.... And writing too--can't forget that.
