About Me

(5-12-15 Notice!) - After a long hiatus (of about 2 years, lol) I'm back on swap-bot. Hello, and hi again! :3

(last profile update: 05/12/15) ~ (mail was last checked: 05/12/15)

{ 05/12/15 :: 123 ratings = T1 (25) :: T2 (36) :: T3 (63) }

30/F/Dallasite. Grew up most of my life in Texas. Most people jokingly think I love rodeos and cowboys, but I'm not that kind of Texan. I'm a big supporter of lgbt rights and animal rights. I don't smoke, drink, or use any kind of drugs... and haven't done so all my life. {some would say I was sxe, but I don't really consider it that, and i don't like that label} I love to bake, especially cupcakes. I'm somewhat in love with the graffiti/underground art scene, and will often stop my car just to take a photo of an awesome piece. {but i'm not a fan of basic tagging} I'm a vegetarian, and have been that way since I was 13. I don't eat anything with gelatin in it, and I can't seem to give up cheese. {ever try finding a decent vegan cheese? it's near impossible} Oh, and I guess I should mention that I love geek/nerd culture. This includes things like video games, comics, tv shows, artwork, etc..

:: Dear swap partners, my swap progress can be found at the bottom of this profile in my 'Tags! & Swaps' section. Also, I would reeeeally appreciate it if you would please contact me before rating a 1 or a 3 so I can try and fix whatever problem there is. I say this because I want to make sure everyone has an awesome time swapping with me, so please don't feel scared about sending me a message to address any swap issues. :D ::

Regarding extra's: Please do not send extra's in an effort to gain a 'heart'. I base my heart ratings on the actual swap, not on anything extra added to the package. Sorry to sound so terse, but I have enough clutter in my home, and don't need to add more bits and paper scraps to it. =x

Swaps I've hosted!:

Private Swaps:

Please note!! - I get my swap-bot mail through a po box (in the next city over). I'm not able to check it every day.. I can check it maybe 2-3 times a week, at the most. So if you've sent something and you're thinking "Why hasn't she rated me yet? It should have gotten there by now.." - It's probably because I haven't made a recent visit there yet. Sorry, but I can't make daily trips there. T_T
