About Me

I am a 27-year-old stay-at-home mom to 4-year-old and 18-month-old. I make and sell jewelry and accessories at craft fairs and on Etsy. I love retro, vintage, cute, weird, and unusual things. I'm small, geeky and currently have very blue raspberry hair.

I was absent from swap-bot for a while because I couldn't afford shipping anymore. I miss getting fun packages and surprises in the mail, so I think I might start easing back in.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy jewelry making, crocheting, sewing, felting, screenprinting, and scrapbooking. I love trying new crafts, and will try anything once. I'm having fun with matchboxes. I love little tiny cute things. I also love handmade and/or hand dyed yarn.

Things I Like

I love bright and pale colors(esp. lime green, pink, purple, turquoise/teal, red). I also like black and chocolate brown, but not together. I like polka dots, owls, hedgehogs, dinosaurs, kittens, birds, zombies, monsters, stuffed creatures, gnomes, mushrooms, forest creatures, acorns, stars, hearts, bows, kawaii(mostly food with faces and animals), octopus, cupcakes and other baked goods, strawberries, tomatoes, apples, pears, and vintage items from the 1920s-1980s. I also like fruit flavored candies, milk chocolate, and tea. I like lucite, acrylic, glass, and wood beads and buttons. If sending scented items I like fruit scents and bakery type scents. I adore handmade bath products and natural bath products.

Please Don't Send

I'm not particularly fond of anything raspberry scented/flavored, orange colored, earl gray tea, dark chocolate, red roses, stretchy headbands, or floral and musky scents.

Favorite Movies

Ghost World, Amelie, Harold and Maude, The Big Lebowski, Donnie Darko, Fifth Element, and Garden State. I also love zombies, bollywood, and anything Steve Buscemi.

I adore outer space scifi like Firefly/Serenity and All the Stargates.

Favorite Music

I'll listen to almost anything if I'm in the mood. I especially love Tilly and the Wall, Jason Anderson, Consafos, The Good Life, Rilo Kiley, Belle and Sebastian, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Cursive, The Octopus Project, Cat Power, Johnny Cash, Le Tigre, Mates of State, Radiohead, Talking Heads, The Breeders, and The Pixies.

Favorite Books

art and craft books. I like learning new skills, but I'm terrible at following patterns. Also graphic novels and post-apocalyptic novels.

Response: Hi. I mailed your package on July 26, 2011, and have a stamped customs form, which I can email you. It usually takes a month for mail to get from Texas to Australia, in my experience, so it should be there fairly soon.

Comment: Thanks for the cool Pop Art card!
Response: Thank you! I was hoping you would like the Andy Warhol paper, even though it was kind of girly.
NorthernBorder rated for Homemade Postcard Swap on Apr 18, 2008
Comment: Thanks for the pretty card. It had opened up in the mail and was almost like a greeting card. I like the textured paper.
Response: That's weird that it opened. Maybe its because I used a different kind of glue than I normally do. I love using that textured paper.
