About Me

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.

Currently working on a bit of everything. Part artist, part wannabe poet, part crazy cat lady, and part artesian.

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 love talking about books (and Buffy the Vampire Slayer) so this may be the longest one.

I listen to 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.

Books

Oranges aren't the Only Fruit -Jeannette Winterson if you love this book, let's be friends:) its my favorite!

Love Dishonor, Marry, Die/Cherish, Perish, a novel by David Rakoff not only is this book amazing but also very short. this will give you an idea

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.

Hunger Games and not because I like mega violence done by teens but because it is a brilliant analogy for the dog-eat-dog world ours feels like sometimes and because the message seems to be that of hope and remaining true to yourself even when it is hard.

*The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton (the Brenda Dayne librivox recording is the way to go),Anne Patchett,Philip K. Dick, Anne of Green Gables,Packing for Mars by Mary Roach, Ring World by Larry Niven,Dresden Files, Factoring Humanity - Robert Sawyer, Harry Potter series, Rhapsody by Elizabeth Hayden, Extremely loud and incredibly close - Jonathan Safran Foer, Plague of Doves by Louise Erdrich, Barbara Kingslover

Podcasts:

Welcome to Night Vale! - If you think Prairie Home Companion would be better if it were based on HP Lovecraft and written by David Lynch, this one is for you!

Snap Judgement - Glynn Washington's amazing stories usually begin this podcast. After a few episodes you start to wonder how all this happened to the same guy. I really wish I didn't freak out when I meet celebrities or I would try to meet this guy.

Stuff Mom never told me, Dusted (by storywonk.com), Buffering the vampire slayer, RadioLab, StarTalk - Neil Degrasse Tyson, All Songs Considered, Another Round, Science Friday, Call your girlfriend, lifeafter, the unmute podcast with Myisha Cherry

Movies and TV

I tend to like books with flowery language and troubled characters, but what I like is to watch is mostly space-opera. If people are in a spaceship, preferably with alien friends, I want to watch that!

KORRASAMI IS CANON!!!!!

Buffy, Orphan Black, Firefly, Warehouse 13, Stargate, Farscape, X-files, 30Rock, Shakespeare stuff, 5th Element, Empire Records, Bladerunner, Star Trek, any space-opera show, The Avengers, Parks and Rec, Terrible horror movies that are unintentionally funny, British comedy (Luxury Comedy, Monty Python, Red Dwarf, Dawn French, Steven Fry, Hugh Laurie, Noel Fielding) Avatar the Last Air-Bender (cartoon) and Korra, X-men...

Swapping

Please no food, no religious, and no scented items..

Here is a list of stuff I like a lot.

items I would like: Handmade stuff including jewelry especially bracelets(7"), zines, curios/curiosities, inchies, atcs, origami paper strips for lucky stars, squinkie type tiny toys, small hand made things, blank notecards/artsy non-touristy postcards in moderation(I'm trying to cut down), charms, glass beads, 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.

themes I like in no order: Ingress, Sci-fi, Art, Allison Scagliotti/Claudia Donovan, Lovecraft, yoda, River Song, blue (esp peacock blue and electric blue) halloween, fantasy, space, Kutusita Nyanko cat,poetry, Kay Ryan, Billy Collins, boygirlparty, bright colors, contemporary art, TED talks, sentimental circus, goddesses, Dr. Who(esp. River Song and Romana), Buffy, Frida Kahlo, San-x, Chiho Aoshima, paisley, Kuromi, orchids, Peacocks, celestial, more bright colors, strong women, My Little Pony (old school and FiM), CatWoman, studio Ghibli, Alison Bechdel, Wonder Woman, yoga, Xena, Rainbow Brite, Rogue or Storm and other Xmen, Remedios Varo, David Rakoff, invader Zim, rainbows, stars, Warhol, NPR, zentangle and other bold decorative black and white designs, any interesting color combo really, mehndi, swirlies, bird, butterfly and cat motifs, celtic knots/book of kells/nordic art, tarepanda, musicals (especially Wicked) beer and wine, and other stuff.

Kawaii kawaii my favorite is any cute animals/food hybrid like naynko spring rolls or macaroons or the little pandas being picked up with chopsticks (I eat veg 90% of the time - I just have a weird sense of humor), Tarepanda, picot teddy, sentimental circus, any cute animals next, then toys (like cute patchwork animals) or food with faces. I have more Hello Kitty than anyone needs (no more is required) and not overly fond of poo, make-up or real photos. I am grateful for all kawaii though. I'd love some cute figures, flatbacks,keychains, etc esp in my favorite characters. 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 :) 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.

I am especially interested in newer Riot Grrrl bands like Tacocat and electronica like AhMerAhSu.

wish list

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

ZINES!!!!

rainbows

Pretty deco tape, paper tape, or washi tape.

Lately I have been collecting lots of kawaii memo sheets and stickers. Especially sentimental circus stuff.

Anything Orphan Black, Night Vale, or Buffy the Vampire Slayer related.

wtnv

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

inchies or other framable art works especially if hand-drawn/painted. I have lots of 5x7" frames. I would love some 5x7 handmade postcards! 4x6 is good too, but harder to find hanging frames for.

handmade bracelets somewhere between 7-7.5".

tiny whimsies

Small 3d mail art.

I think people get intimidated by my list of obscure and specific stuff. I like surprises too.

Postage

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: Your doodle zine is so elaborate and deserves a heart on its own. The persistence & BS detector zines are great as well. But you get double bonus extra hearts for sending me the WTNV zine! (in part b/c it reminded me i'm late buying my tickets for the live show...) Thanks for all of them!
Response: Excellent. I was so excited to have another night vale denizen as a swap partner.
