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.

I prefer zany, weird, funny, swear-y, silly things. Have a card you think is too inappropriate to send to somebody? You can send it to me!

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 mail art, but I love a thoughtful message (that's not about the weather...) 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!

Likes:
--orange (the color, not the fruit)

--anatomical stuff: brains/bones etc.

--weightlifters/body builders/fighters/muscular people

--dialogue bubbles from comic books

--the patterned insides of security envelopes

--Tarot cards

--anything related to vinyl records/lps

--gnomes/elves

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

Comment: OMG - loved your long letter...made me laugh (with you) quite a bit. Told my husband about the snake. We just had reptiles at our library and my coworkers were laughing at how scared I was even with the presentation far from me. I'll write back soon, so you can get to know me as well. Thanks so much for such a fun letter getting to know you :-) Have a great day. (Sorry for the delay in rating.) Take care, Annette
Response: Who brings reptiles to a library?! That's as bad as snakes in Michaels. I used to work at a preschool and every few months they'd have "Critter Caravan"--a traveling bunch of fun animals like rabbits and chinchillas, but sometimes they'd bring the snake. They kept it in a cooler! Like one of those playmate coolers! The minute the animal handler put her hand on that cooler handle I'd book it out of there to hide in the bathroom! Looking forward to your letter! :-)

Comment: Thanks so much for swapping! And thanks for thinking of my profile. While I like comedy, I also write dark and depressing things. I loved (is that really the right word for it?) your story. Unfortunately, I really related. :) Oh, and I loved (the absolutely correct word) your note/task paper!
Response: Thank you so much! That mother character haunts my dreams. Lately she's in a lot of my writing. I'm going to run her over or put her in the hospital. :-)

Comment: Awesome! Two hearts! Three! I love the owl notes and the color-your-own-message card especially! The Hawaii images will be super useful. I think the origami paper is going to possibly become mini envies...and washi! and more! Yay!

Rest assured that if I ever send you something that does make you vomit, I probably did it as a perverse joke...or because I forgot about the butterflies, which I sprinkle all over the place on a regular basis! I love your profile, and may edit mine..... nah, too lazy!
