About Me

On 5/1/09 I lost my job, but I'm picking up a temp job soon... if you want to do a personal swap with me for a stuffie, send me a pm.

FYI: Don't check my FLICKR photos if you haven't received your package from me yet, it may ruin your surprise.

♥ HEARTS: I'd much rather receive something very well made and tailored to my profile, rather than a pile of extras. Please put this into consideration when making my swap packages, thanks!

I'm a 29 year old with a fun loving spirit and a great sense of humor. I drive way too fast everywhere I go in my little silver Jetta. I enjoy anything with slapstick humor. Remember when you were in 3rd grade and people at lunch would offer you "see-food"? Yeah, I still laugh at that kind of stuff.

I also have a very serious and professional side. I enjoy yoga and running, and spending time with my husband and my dog - a beagle.

I think my personality is best summed up by a quote I found on whinendine's profile: I like to do things for people that they don't expect. I get a lot of joy out of that.

Anything with an asian flair, tattoo art or something hand made is right up my alley.

I live in Minnesota. It's cold here. Once it hits late October/November anything that can freeze will. We don't thaw out until April or later. So, avoid sending liquids.

I reuse packaging whenever possible. I recommend you try to do so, too! Mother earth would love you for it. :-)



Have you ever seen office space? Do you know who Michael Bolton is? Did you love the scene where they smash the printer? That should hint to the person I am and the music I like.

Actually, I listen to pretty much anything, but NO country (sorry to any fans).


Strange Brew, Office Space, Project Runway (FIERCE), Family Guy, Run's House, Pimp My Ride, Scrubs, or anything they air on Comedy Central.

And... well, pretty much anything silly that will make me laugh.


I like to paint, make collages and stuffies of all kinds, doodle, and got into subversive cross stitching awhile back.

My monster  creation

Yes or No?

I'd love anything as follows:

  • mini stuffies, felties or amigurumi (around 3" tall, +/-)

  • a biscornu made by you

  • little somethings that look imported: in particular I like Mexican Day of the Dead stuff or alebrijes or sugar skulls, Eastern European paintings of religious figures, handmade voodoo dolls, and Asian inspired items (meaning - stuff with Chinese/Japanese text, bright floral prints, red colors, but not anime)

  • anything tattoo-y or Betsey Johnson is cool

  • stuff with peace signs, Buddha or lotus on it

  • a munny decorated by you

  • I have a smallish collection of vintage salt and pepper shakers from the 1940's - 1960's, mostly cartoon characters and cute animals... anything that would fit into my collection would be nice

  • PURPLE stuff, or if not purple then use extra bright colors like primaries and neons

    *_ *_ *_ *_ *_ *

I'm NOT a big fan of:

  • fru-fru cutesy girly stuff with lots of pink glitter, ribbon, lace, maribou... basically, like Sanrio/Hello Kitty

  • anything that is shabby chic, holly hobby, or prim is not for me... I'm a modern chic girl

  • most crafting or scrapbooking supplies won't be helpful to me (with the exception of fun/wacky buttons and fabric or similar neat things that I can use when creating stuffies/dotees for my trading)

  • anything personal that I prefer to buy for myself: soaps, lip gloss or other makeup type items, perfumes or oils

  • please no food, candies or other edible/drinkable snacks (including tea)

  • my dog is a toy destroying machine and has weight problems, please don't send toys or treats for him

  • nothing extremely goth or anything violent, scary, mean, worn or dirty

My So Called Ethics...?

My goal is to earn a heart for every item I sent, although I don't expect that I get a heart and won't bully you for one. I will try to custom tailor your swap to your profile as much as I can. I put a lot of effort into what I do and really hope you enjoy what I send.

I am a very timely person and usually send out my swap before the due date. I won't mark the package sent unless I really sent it. If you don't receive it within a week or two (more for international), please let me know right away.

Please let me know if there is ever postage due on one of my swaps.

I promise to rate everyone that sends to me, and I hope that you can do the same.

Please don't flake on me, I'd be bummed. :-(

Comment: I love everything!!! The wrap is so awesome... I'm impressed!!! Skye is wrestling with the baby right now... between the googly eyes and the crinkly wings, she doesn't know what to do with herself. Everything is awesome.. thank you so much! :)
Response: EEEEEE! I'm glad you liked the wrap/jaket... I was worried maybe it would be too much color for you. Hopefully it fits ok, I made it based on a one size fits all wrap I bought in Hong Kong a few years ago. Enjoy!
