About Me


I am Rodeo! New to the site but not new to snail mail!

I am: an independent business owner (with a store front), executive vegan chef, employee of a awesome vintage store!, bicycle enthusiast, coffee lover, kawaii collector, vintage/retro fan, heavily tattooed, pierced, penpal/package pal, polariod picture taker, a buddy to 2 pugs (brother and sister, both 2yrs) and zinester.

I live in Dallas, Texas in a lil' house that was built in 1911. There are plants, pictures, craft stations, bicycles, retro furniture, zines cookbooks, and kawaii everywhere. I'm a Texan born and raised! Party!

Lets be pals! I am always looking for new package pals, so if you think youd like to trade get a hold of me!

Also, if I sent something and its not up to par, let me know so I can fix it! I know what its like to get burned and flaked on. I like to send things off ASAP, put together things others would like, and I will never join swaps that I dont think I could handle. Before you give me a bad rating, lets talk! Also, it takes a lot to upset me. If you send me something late, dirty, broken, torn, etc...you will be hearing from me, but not in a jerky way. Treat others how you want to be treated! xoxo

Favorite Crafts

I cook and bake a LOT. Cupcakes are my favorite thing to bake, but really I like frosting all kinds of cake. I've been a vegan chef in a professional setting for 6 yrs now, so I better like cooking :)

I like to make jewelry from vintage charms and chains. I like making fun and one of a kind necklaces and such.

I write a LOT. Letters, music, lyrics, spoken word, recipes, zines, and I am a compulsive list maker. I run out of ink in felt tip pens and gelly roll pens so fast.


Soap making.

Sewing small things...I am new to sewing machines, so I am trying to figure it all out!

Music! Classically trained in viola, violin, cello, and bass. I have been playing music since the ripe old age of 8. :D Growing up, choir was a big part of my life. I've gone from playing in orchestras to all girl punk bands to folk bands back to punk bands. These days in bands, I generally sing or play a stringed instrument or both!

Photography. This is what I went to school for, and is my first craft love. As a photojournalists daughter, I have been in front or behind a camera my whole life. Digital & 35mm are what I learned in school, but Polaroid and Fuji make the instant film that I love a lot!

Things to Swap

I have tons of stickers, ribbon, lots of all natural/organic body products and lip balms (all new, of course) , deadstock Polaroid film, canisters of brand new tea, and mini zines that I'd be happy to trade.

I have a Polaroid camera, Fuji Mini Instax and the regular Fuji Instax as well. If you want to trade instant pictures, that would rule! I like any toy camera pictures (holga, actionsampler, etc), really. :)

I'm willing to trade anything for KAWAII matchboxes / kawaii whimsey jars. LOVE THEM! Also, if you think you could make me a super rad (and even) stuffed envie with surprises/lucky parcel I will be down to trade anything for that, too ;) I really like making profile surprises!

Super Obsessed With...


Kawaii, food, flakes, unicorns/ponies, bikes, anything puffy, glittery, shiny, sharks, teeth, hologram, fruit...


Any! I dont have any and sooo want to start a collection.


Kawaii memos of all sizes, handmade, notecards, notepads, recycled paper, screen printed, vintage, loose sheets of interesting and unique stuff, unicorns/ponies, Russian stacking doll print


Vintage buttons and vintage metal charms, plastic 80s charms, glue sticks, superglue, hand made soap stuff


Kawaii matchboxes, feather jewelry, Japanese erasers, bottle cap magnets, blue hair dye, green hair dye, pugs, Boston terriers, candles, vintage t shirts, dinosaurs, riot grrrl, hot pink hair dye, scarves, anything with horse shoes or horses on it, screenprinted posters, robots, space, cupcakes, oven mitts, frosting bags and tips, sparkley brooches, felt jewelry, aprons, tattoo related art, vegan cookbooks, pizza, sparkles, ponies, unicorns, petticoats, Kerropi, fixed gear bikes...


Color: greens and blues. I wear mostly black, though

Animal: horse, shark, giraffe, unicorn, bunnies, owls, whales, narwhal.

Food: vegan food!! no meat, no dairy, no animal products what so ever.

Tea: anything fruity, mint green.

Coffee: fair traded anything

Candy: anything with out dairy or animal by products! I LOVE STARBURSTS, BUT CAN ONLY EAT THE KIND FROM EUROPE! No animal products in the starbursts over there for some reason!

Postcards: vintage, oceans, cute animals, art. All naked, not in envies.

Cosmetics: mascara, fake eyelashes. These are generally the only cosmetics I wear on a regular basis, besides perfume and hair products. As a chef, I CANNOT wear nail polish, its againt health code.

Plants: orchid, succulents.

Pens: black felt tips.

Fragrance: Marc Jacobs, Lancome Miracle, vanilla, clean smells.

Jewelry: necklaces, nose studs x 2 (both nostrils are pierced!)


Punk rock will always be number one! classical, old rap and hip hop, indie, twee, pop, oldies, classic rock.


Threadbare and vintage tshirts

Kawaii stuffed envies!

Vintage wrapping paper

Handmade notecards


Kawaii matchboxes / whimsey jars

Polaroid pictures

Lip stain / mascara

Sticker grabbags

Lucky parcels. I have never gotten one/know what theyre all about. I am intrigued!

Swap buddies from out of the USA that have similar interests ;)!

These are things I'd like to get, but not anything I ever expect! Don't think you have to send me these things. I am super easy to please!


FOOD: If you send any edibles, please note that I don't eat any animal products (milk, whey, butter, eggs, gelitan, etc) BUT my boyfriend will eat any candy you send.

JEWELRY: I can't wear earrings (I have stretched ear lobes) or rings (because of work).

ART SUPPLIES: I don't scrapbook, make ATC, knit, crochet, or paint. So please, don't send me anything dealing with any of those things as I have no use for them.
