About Me

I love to make mail-art, especially handmade postcards. I dabble in collage, painting and drawing. I also like to write letters.

I like swearing, sarcasm, bad puns and terrible jokes. My favorite color is orange, but blue and magenta are also nice.

Probably my biggest pet-peeve is when people write, "Hope you like this card" as the entire message and then sign their name. Please. Write something. Write ANYTHING. I don't care if you list the contents of your purse, your stomach, or your kid's nose. Just write SOMETHING! and THEN you can write, "Hope you like this card." I love art, but I love a hearty message even more!

Handmade is great no matter what. I mean it. If you make it, I'll appreciate it. I always prefer handmade to store-bought.

Store-bought's okay if it's funny, or has a cat on it, or a donkey, or a fox. Art postcards (esp. Edward Hopper/surrealist/modern) are also welcome.

Anything related to the Boston Red Sox or Toronto Blue Jays would make my day!

--woodland creatures (fox, rabbit, squirrel, wolf, chipmunk, etc) and donkeys and cats

-doodles like this: http://piccandle.tumblr.com/

--Japanese cutesy stationery/stickers

--Marvel, esp. Deadpool, Hulk, Captain America and Wolverine

--Boston Red Sox &/or Toronto Blue Jays

--Arizona, esp. Sedona

--Don't Mess with Texas & anything related to Austin

--Canadian things (eg: beavers, maple leaves, Toronto, Roots, True North) (but no hockey...)

--music playlists/record recommendations

--Crosswords, ken-ken puzzles, Crypto-quotes, etc. (not really a fan of Sudoku though...)

--Hamilton

--stencils

--rubber stamps

--pens

--Washi tape

--unused US postage stamps

--patterned paper napkins [ unused! :-) ]

--Stupid jokes: for example:
Q: What game do you play with a wombat?
A: Wom.

Popped over to say that no one has rated me for the Send Me A Postcard 2 swap and I sent all at the same time, so the post office must have eaten the entire stack. Boo! Will try hard to resend tomorrow, if not then Tuesday. Sorry!
