Hey swap coordinators: I am always willing to angel swaps I'm in!
I'm a feminist. I dig everything Keri Smith does. If I see a feather or an interesting piece of paper on the ground, I have no qualms about picking it up, and it will probably end up in a collage or piece of mailart. I have an eight-year-old who loves to draw.
I tend to avoid swaps that involve buying things, as swaps can get expensive just with postage. I also find it intensely difficult to shop for other people (and even for myself--I often have a clear picture of what I want in mind and I usually can't find it in a store), so I prefer to make things instead.
I rate a five if your swap meets the requirements and isn't excessively late without communication. I give a heart if I really really loved what you sent--and if I don't, please don't be offended.
I rate everything I receive within 24 hours, and I go to the post office twice a week and I don't mark my swap sent until it's been dropped off there. If you don't receive something from me, send me a message and I'll resend it ASAP.
I have tried and will try just about anything. Perennial favorites include bibliopegy, watercolor, art journaling, mailart, weaving, hand-carved stamps, zinemaking, felting, embroidery, recycled material collages in the form of postcards and ATCs, custom envelopes, leave-behinds for guerilla art, and small assemblages.
Radiohead, Brandi Carlile, Hozier, Laura Marling, Leonard Cohen, the Hamilton soundtrack.
Pacific Rim, Gattaca, The Empire Strikes Back, Mad Max: Fury Road.
The Mandalorian, Arthdal Chronicles, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Battlestar Galactica, The Expanse.
The Little Prince, The Wander Society, The Mapmaker's War.
Dragon Age II, Gone Home, Kentucky Route Zero, Monument Valley.
In pairs: teal and orange, brown and powder blue, vermillion and robin's egg. Alone: purple, grey, chartreuse, mustard. I'm not a fan of pink.
THEMES / SUBJECTS
Vintage, abstract, mail and postage, archery, fantasy.
Foxes, ferrets, ravens, dogs, peacocks, elephants. I prefer realistic or boldly stylized renditions rather than cartoony "cute" animals.
ITEMS I COLLECT
I won't give you a bad rating for including any of this; it's just stuff I'm not into and/or have sensory issues about.
catnipitis went above and beyond when she angeled the Destash My Craft Stash swap! People like her make Swap-bot a fantastic community.
