About Me

I have been out of swapping for quite some time, but I am looking forward to jumping back in now!

36-year-old writer/zinester/photographer living in Seattle with an awesome kitty. Wiccan, liberal, feminist, pansexual, native Texan, Capricorn, ENFP, Smith College grad, bookworm.

ABOUT MY 1's: They are all from several years ago. I was dealing with some major mental health issues at the time and was not able to complete some swaps because of that. I am now doing some new treatments and doing a lot better, and am confident that it won't happen again. You'll see that the vast majority of my ratings are 5's. I hope all swap coordinators can be understanding about this.

Comment: Thanks for the nice PC. I think everyone should 'tell It like it is'. Half the problems in life are a result of people not just saying what they mean.

Hi! I'm running a December Birthday Card USA Only Swap and thought you might like to join.

Sternenfee on Aug 30, 2013:

Welcome to this site. Maybe you'd like to fill your profile with some more information...likes/dislikes and so on. It's always easier for your future swap partners to find something to send you then :)

Hi! This is for the Happy Music Video Profile Comment swap! So I recently discovered the wonders of the Eurovision Song Contest and wish it aired on American TV, but that's why it's Eurovision, haha. Anyway, This is one of my favorite performances from ESC! It's Pasha Parfeny from Moldova singing Lăutar.

I love the song because it's catchy and upbeat, the choreography is interesting, and the dancers' outfits are unique! Hope you enjoy it!

Dear wallflowergrownwild,

Hi! Being your partner in the Happy Music Video Profile Comment swap, I am glad to share this song that I like as well as the movie clip that was made for it. It is from Kina Grannis, a half Japanese and half American pop singer.

I hope you will like it. Have a lovely day!

In Your Arms

Hey Quinn, it is me! :3

2planetearth on Aug 18, 2010:

I hope you enjoyed the package I sent. It's unfortunate you did not acknowledge what I sent- be it good or bad. You are rude by not responding to PM's and rating.

2planetearth on Aug 10, 2010:

Hi Quinn, I am your partner for Decorate and Fill a Pringles Can * USA I sent the package out 07/26/10 and sent you a few P.M's Seems like your very busy now but I wanted to know if you received the package sent? Thanks
