About Me

Hi. I'm J (Yep, one letter. it is my legal name)

Why Wyrdfae?

Wyrdfae was the name of my creative blog on LiveJournal (remember LJ?). I wanted some kind of "fae". I picked "wyrd" because it is both a Shakespeare reference and a Dune reference - both alluding to the magic and spirituality which is something I find in creating. It's cheesy and I'm ok with that.

Rating - I always rate unless there was an issue. If I don't get a rating for something I will follow up. I really want my swaps to get where they need to go.

Favorite books and podcasts

I listen to audio books and podcasts while crafting, art-ing, chore-doing. I have been known to pick up a paper book from time to time, though.


HGttG series by Douglas Adams (I read this in high school originally. My friends and I would read it aloud to passer-bys. Silly people we were. ) Love Dishonor, Marry, Die/Cherish, Perish, a novel by David Rakoff, Alok Vaid-Menon, Anne Leckie, MurderBot by Martha Wells, Daniel Lavery, Well written sci-fi graphic novels with breathtaking art ( ok, I should have just said Monstress), Janet Mock, Felix Ever After, Witch Boy, Audre Lorde, Danez Smith, Brene Browne, Anne Patchett, Philip K. Dick, Packing for Mars, Plague of Doves by Louise Erdrich, Saga,


Dear Prudence, Welcome to Night Vale, Snap Judgement, Buffering the vampire slayer, RadioLab, the unmute podcast with Myisha Cherry, Jay and Miles Xplain the X-men, etc

Movies and TV

Buffy, Lovercraft Country, Orphan Black, Umbrella Academy, She-Ra, Get Out, Stargate, Farscape, X-files, 30Rock, 5th Element, Empire Records, Bladerunner, Star Trek, any space-opera show, The Avengers, Parks and Rec, Terrible horror movies that are unintentionally funny, Avatar the Last Air-Bender (cartoon) and Korra, X-men...


Please no food, no religious, and absolutely no scented items.. Also, do not send me licensed Harry Potter merchandise or anything JKR made money off of. Harry Potter fans are wonderful, but JKR is racist and transphobic.

Here is a list of stuff I like a lot.

items I would like: Handmade stuff , zines, curios/curiosities, inchies, atcs, origami paper strips for lucky stars, small hand made things, blank notecards/artsy non-touristy postcards in moderation natural fiber yarn about 6 yards long so I can maybe use it for a striped scarf, other stationary and memo pages, random stuff in themes I like or you think I might like are also fun.

random things I like in no comprehensible order: Sci-fi, Art, peacocks, blue (esp peacock blue and electric blue) halloween, fantasy, space, Pop Surrealism, poetry, Kay Ryan, bright colors, contemporary art, sentimental circus, Dr. Who, Buffy, Frida Kahlo, Chiho Aoshima, paisley, orchids, Peacocks, celestial, more bright colors, studio Ghibli, Alison Bechdel, tarot cards, Xena, Rainbow Brite, Remedios Varo, invader Zim, rainbows, stars, Warhol, NPR, zentangle and other bold decorative black and white designs, any interesting color combo really, bird, butterfly and cat motifs, celtic knots/book of kells/nordic art, musicals, beer and wine, and other stuff.


I have yet to find kawaii anything that is too scary. Does that sound like a challenge? Bring it on!

Artist Trading Cards/inchies/mailart - while this is subjective, I prefer ATCs and such that are meaningful to you rather than just fit my themes. I like my themes - just want to see your take on the world. Art is about expressing YOU :) I make ATCs a variety of ways. Some hand drawn or painted, some mixed media collage, and I know my way around photoshop. None of them are very conventional. Totally up for one-on-one swaps if my description sounds interesting.

I'm not offended by much but I don't like mean things, which is a succinct way of saying black lives matter and sexism, racism, transphobia, and homophobia will not be tolerated here. The word "g*psy" bums me out. If you send me recipes I prefer to cook vegan at home except for honey and eggs. I'm not huge on religious stuff or receiving food/drink/tea items unless you know me pretty well.

Favorite Music

My favorite artists are Neko Case and Janelle Monae. Also: Tacocat, AhMerAhSu, John-Allison Weiss, Mal Blum, LP, Against Me!, Rae Spoon, Dorian Electra, Rilo Kiley, Worriers, etc

wish list

I will use this space to list the things I am most obsessed with currently, which are as follows:

Mail art collaborations like jams or exquisite corpse and apparently friendship books and decos.



inchies or other framable art works especially if hand-drawn/painted and esp if 4/6 or 5x7.

Poker/standard size playing cards with interesting backs or fronts


Join this group I need a co-owner or 2....


So I do want to mention that I send when I say I do and rate when I receive. I always put on enough or more postage to my understanding of the regulations. Different po employees sometimes see them differently. If you receive something w postage due, let me know and I will send you stamps.


Comment: Love 'em! Thank you!
Response: That was fast! I'm glad you got them and like them

Thanks, and I'll work on the ATCs this weekend, while I'm home for Halloween instead of going out. 🙄😂

Got the adorable zombie tag you made for the favorite theme atc tag game, and I love it. The extra card and the stickers were the delicious cream cheese frosting on this cupcake of a trade. Thanks so much.
