About Me

The Great Gatesy

My name is Sara! I'm 25, living in Philly and work a muggle office job. I also do sfx makeup and a teeny bit of modeling. I'm super crafty and love challenges! I have a stupid cat named Blanket and live with a room mate and her two dogs and her super fat cat. As far as general things I love; large stickers, anything spooky/horror related, true crime, hand crafted things, and things with trees on them. (I just really love bare trees, they are very aesthetically pleasing.)

Side note I almost always forget to take photos of the things I send out, so if you grab a pic I'd love it if you shared it with me!

Also worth noting: I am currently caught up with all swaps (or have reached out to you); if you don't receive something of mine, please let me know!

General Quick Swap Tips

I love vintage style papers and stickers, as well as anything spooky, vintage or non. I love appliques and pinback buttons. My favorite colors are puce; dusty light blues, greens, and pinks; and greys. I love trees artistically. I love doodles and sketches, as well as any type of art you'd like to share with me; crocheted granny squares, small paintings, ATCs, etc.

I also collect religious iconography and paraphernalia, specifically Catholic/Virgin Mary/Angels but I like it all.

Wants

Anything handmade. I love it when people put time into their work. Horror recommendations, be they movies, books, art, creepypasta... Large stickers - I have large makeup cases, guitars, laptops and notebooks begging for more stickers. :) Washi tape - I have only recently discovered it and find it miraculous. Religious ephemera and paraphernalia, especially from other countries - I am an agnostic, but I find learning about religions very interesting, and all art and items from them beautiful. Literally anything Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Supernatural related - I have large and growing collections of books, figurines, and various other items for both television shows. (I am a fairweather Destiel shipper [meaning I am not a squealing fanatic about it but I do think they're in love

No thank you!

I don't love anything too country cute, reward stickers, or anything that is too 'grade school'y; other than that I am pretty easy to please!

Comment: Thank you for re-sending this swap. Everything you sent was spot on. Spiderman is his favorite Marvel character & he loved the origami dollar bills. He said it reminded him of going to a Broadway show that he went to. Also, the note you wrote was FABULOUS! He was so excited to hear that you liked the Power Rangers & had the same favorite ranger as him. All in all, this turned out to be a great swap & you made Grayson very happy. Thank you so much for everything :)
Response: Hi Janis- I'm so glad this got to you! Again I'm very sorry about the mix up, but I truly am grateful for you giving me the chance to make it better! I'm also sooo happy Grayson enjoyed it! I was especially excited when you told me he liked Power Rangers, because that honestly used to be my favorite show. <3 Happy swapping!

Comment: It's Halloween, I've closed all the blinds and lit a bunch of candles. I've got a Pumpkin Shandy in hand and what arrives in the mail? Your paranormal story. It was the perfect spooky thing to read with creepy iTunes Halloween Radio in the background. What a cool story! Super scary. I did a ghost tour last night, so this just aided to the spook factor. :) I'll have to look for the episode! Thank you.
