Hi, I'm Zilliah Bailey! I'm a math and art student, and I love reading and yarn.
PLEASE NOTE! I'm shipping from CANADA so things will take longer to arrive: I'd appreciate it if you would wait at least a month before asking me to resend - it can take this long or longer for some mail to arrive. I will, of course, resend if it doesn't arrive, so please message me if you never get anything.
I currently have two 1s: these were both for swaps where I sent cards which never arrived (for one of them I actually sent two cards which both got lost!)- then some personal stuff came up so I wasn't able to deal with them. I'm currently making up for these swaps.
Knitting, embroidery, sewing, mixed media. I really really like art that combines ink or watercolours and embroidery.
I really like ATCs, particularly ones with unusual materials, textiles, or hand-drawn or painted bits. I don't like ATCs that are just collaged, or made without any thought put into them.
I really like speculative fiction, especially if it has believably written female characters. Short stories are great. Good retellings of fairy tales are awesome.
This story is excellent.
I generally love anything by Diana Wynne Jones, N.K. Jemisin, Kelly Link, Ellen Klages, Douglas Adams, Tamora Pierce, Patricia C. Wrede.
Some single books I love include: Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norell (Susanna Clarke) Zahrah the Windseeker (Nnedi Okorafor) In Memory of Whiteness (Kim Stanley Robinson)
and so many other ones, I don't even know.
-robots, dinosaurs, jellyfish, mushrooms, rainbows, books, mermaids, flowers, circles
-post-apocalyptic/abandoned things, sugar, shiny things, floating cities in the sky, maps
-biohazard logos, (other warning logos are pretty excellent too. I also enjoy airplane emergency cards), circuit boards and circuit diagrams, power button logo (the circle with the line through the top)
-intense shades of blue-green
-corsets, interesting clothes/outfits, costumes, historical clothing
-YARN (but if you would like to send me yarn, please message me first, I am rather specific about what types I like)
-unexpected materials, multimedia collage
(Any of these are great for ATC themes.)
Craft supplies! Particularly the ones below:
YARN! But again, please message me first, because I've gotten very picky.
Spinning material is appreciated, so long as it's a useful quantity (50g or more, preferably at least 100g).
Knitting, embroidery, and sewing notions are always handy. Stitch markers, various kinds of needles, embroidery floss, embroidery frames, etc, etc, are always useful.
Well-made ATCs. I prefer cards that are not collaged, or include weird materials, or have hand-drawn/painted/etcl bits. If you're looking for themes to make me, anything in the "I LOVE" section is pretty great, and I love fabric ATCs. I'd also like to get ones of cityscapes, particularly futuristic cities.
I like a lot of the art on Magic cards, particularly the ones which are not super gross monsters. So if you have spare ones floating around, I wouldn't mind a couple :)
Anything to do with: food/eating/cooking - including recipe cards, dogs, religion, scented stuff (I'm allergic), perfume, anything that smells really strongly - including candles, holiday-themed things, sugar skulls/day of the dead, kawaii, pets.
No rubber stamps with phrases (unless they're unusual/interesting, but "Happy Birthday" is kind of useless to me), or holiday/event-themed, and I'm not really fond of cartoon-y stamps..
I'm allergic to cats, pollen, dust, perfume, stuff like that.
Unless I've signed up for a swap for them, I'd prefer not to get inchies, matchbooks, FBs, or stickers.
Bad grammar. frown
If I haven't rated you, it's because I haven't received it yet. I check the mail and am online most days.
I generally won't throw in extra stuff, I prefer to get hearts based on what I've done for the swap itself. You don't have to give me extras to get a heart from me, but I do give out hearts for nice extras.
I generally like to give hearts for swaps where it looks like you took the time to read my profile and made an effort to make something I'd like, OR if it looks like you spent a long time working on the swap, and put a lot of effort into it. For example, I don't usually give hearts for ATCs that are simple collages....I'm much more likely to give them if you've included something handdrawn/painted, or a more thought-out collage that looks like it took time to put together. No offense intended, I just think that's what deserves a heart more.
For the swaps I host, I will ban people who don't fit the requirements, but please don't take it personally and it doesn't mean you can't sign up for other swaps I'm hosting. It's your responsibility to read the swap requirements!
If you've flaked on me, or in a swap I'm hosting, you will be banned from my swaps until it gets resolved. Here's the list:
I've been flaked on the following swaps :(
Please let me know if it's been more than a month and you haven't received anything. I will resend! Be aware that I am shipping from Canada, and I can't afford to ship faster than standard - mail takes time to arrive! I've had flat mail from the states take more than a month to arrive, and I usually wait at least that long to contact people if I haven't received anything.
I reuse packaging, and if I'm your partner for multiple swaps at the same time I'll put them in the same envelope (though I'll tell you which one's which).
