hi there!

I'm new, but I'm thrilled to be a new swapper! I love sending and receiving mail, and do so on a regular basis already. Help me get acquainted! :) :)

I joined SwapBot with a goal: I LOVE to receive international swaps!!!!!!!!!!!!

I especially want to get postcards and anything else from around the world.... I will do the same for anyone who wants things from the US.

about me

I live in Washington D.C./Virginia, USA. I'm a 20-something female who works full time and loves the city... and the beach... and art... and music.
I believe in sharing kindness and i love mail!!
I've never eaten meat before.
I'm in college for a liberal arts degree.

I love adventures. In the future, i would like to travel and travel and travel. I like visiting different places and taking trips, although lately I have not had the time. I love things from other places, especially outside the US.

I battled addiction and am in recovery with almost three years sobriety. I am still trying to "find myself," whoever that may be. :)

about art

I grew up in an artsy family.
I've always loved doing little arts and crafts-- Usually things I make on my own; i haven't gotten into scrapbook-making or wire crafts or any other structured "crafting." I like:

  • drawing, doodling and design, usually with nice fine-tip pens or markers
  • decoupage, mostly with magazines
  • art journaling
  • ceramics/clay
  • making jewelry/hemp
  • and anything else i can get my hands on!
  • I like using mixed media to create different things, although i've never had formal training.

things i like

  • things from other countries or states
  • old movie stars
  • anything animal print
  • arts
  • crafting
  • adventures
  • dancing
  • music
  • dogs (mine is Molly, a german shepherd)
  • BIG cats, like tigers, panthers, or wildcats
  • the beach
  • the mountains
  • being outside
  • writing
  • learning new things
  • leis (the flower necklaces - i collect them)

  • excitement!
  • bright colors
  • old sheet music
  • antiques
  • history
  • watching movies (too long a list.. mostly funny though)
  • crossword puzzles that aren't easy
  • when my name is drawn in a cool way
  • tye-dye anything
  • beachy-things
  • the mountains
  • new york city
  • soft socks
  • short stories
  • office supplies
  • organizing
  • bracelets
  • small plastic animal figurines
  • wooden figurines from kenya
  • office supplies
  • stickers

Norah Jones, Muse, SOJA, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Lauren Hill, The Beatles, Ratatat, Elliot Smith, NOFX, Mac Dre, Tchaikovsky, MGMT.

things i dislike

  • religious or bible-themed things, only because i have my own faith and maybe it is different than yours, but no better
  • tea - i don't drink it
  • country music
  • radio-rock music like creed or nickleback
  • fast food
  • super-unhealthy things like twinkies or little debbie
