About Me

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

If you're interested in another place to do some fun swapping, please consider checking out my Facebook group. It's mainly focused on postcards, but there are other organized swaps of packages and other fun stuff!

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: Thank you Quinn for the cute Panda PC. I bet you miss your grandmother. Remembering the good things of grandparents is a wonderful thing! I only remember my grandfather who died in 1982. He was my world & looked up to him very much so. His wife my grandmother died when I was 2 yrs. old. They were my moms parents. I was 8 when my dad's dad died & 18 when his mother died. But i don't remember her well. Anyway, Please take care & be safe.

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

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
