About Me

I was on hiatus much of this year, just wasn't feeling myself. But I am back for some sweet sweet Halloween swapping :)

I have lived in the midwest almost my whole life and been in the Saint Louis area for the most part, with a brief detour to Portland Oregon. I'd love to get out, so seeing the postcard swaps definitely interested me, seeing new a different places!

I am an animal person! At one point though my family had a bunch of animals at once including, dog, cats, fish, lizards, and mice! Right now I have a dog and 3 cats.

I love colour! Pinks, Purples, Greens, Blues, even Yellows! Also really love Kawaii and cutesy things. I get inspiration from colour and my nature and the environment.

Favorites!

Combining it into one

Music: Matchbox Twenty (Rob Thomas), Everclear, Motion City Soundtrack, Say Anything, Robyn, Lizzo, Janelle Monae, Childish Gambino are my tops. Others include, Meatloaf, Hanson, anything with Jack White (White Stripes, Raconteurs, Dead Weather), The Academy Is..., The Killers. Basically lots of pop/punk, r&b, and adult alternative.

Movies: I like independent films and older romantic comedies and anything with Johnny Depp or Vincent D'onofrio. Some of my top faves are, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Ghost, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, Sweeney Todd, Benny and Joon, Elizabethtown, When Harry Met Sally, You've Got Mail. But I am pretty much open to watching anything.

Books: I am a big reader, still read a lot of young adult/teen fiction. But some of the new stuff is pretty trashy so I am moving up. My favorite book of all time is a y/a novel called Rats Saw God by Rob Thomas. I adore Madeleine L'engel, and am still working on getting all her titles. I also really enjoy, Lisa Gardner, Christopher Moore, Chuck Klosterman, Cassandra Clare, Laura Ingalls Wilder, David Sedaris, and Tim Dorsey. Lots of fantasy, fiction, and weird characters. I also really like the Roger Hargreaves illustration with Mr. Men and Little Miss stuff, it is soo cute. I remember them as a kid and am glad they are making a comeback!

TV: Pen15, AHS, Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job, King of the Hill, Bojack, Gilmore Girls, Rupaul's Drag Race

Wishlist!

Postcards: I love all types, and especially weirder ones. If you have one in your collection that you have never sent because you thought no one would like it, send it to me, naked and written on please! I will gladly add it to my collection.

Anything crafty! I do love my ceramics, but I have done lots of other things with my hands; embroidery, latch hook, painting, drawing. I am willing to learn new crafts as well.

Jewelry! I love it all, from the classy to the funky. The only thing is I don't look particularly good in gold colours. I love earrings most of all, but am trying to build up to having more necklaces, rings, and bracelets.

Pigs!! I have a totally huge pig collection and am always looking for fun interesting ones to add to it!

Pet Stuff! I love all my babies, so anything pet/animal related is totally welcome. My elderly pup Buddy unfortunately crossed the Rainbow Bridge in April 2020 after over 15 years together. I also have what I think is a Carolina Dog, but may be a big mutt named Lola. She chews constantly!! so anything to help with that is appreciated :) She really likes ropes. We prefer not to get poo bags or holders because we don't use them often as she just runs around the yard! I also have a young cat named Kiki who is kind of mean but still playful. She is entering into chonk territory and loves any treats or food. As far as toys, she is quite the clumsy beast but loves fishing toys, tunnels, and is fascinated by a ball tower. We also adopted 2 new kittens, who are still tiny little babies and love getting into mischief. Wolfie or Wolf-boy, is a long haired black poofball shadow that is kinda clumsy and a very loud talker. I am not sure if it is his clumsiness or being a scaredy cat but he is hesitant to jump up on counters and things up high. Grayby is a sweet little girl who can cuddle for hours but also likes to explore everywhere. She can get on most counters and things now even if she has to pull herself up!

Makeup! like jewelry another way I add a lot of punch to my style is through makeup. Bright shadows, glossy lips, glowing nail polish! It all works for me.

Anything inspiring! A beautiful photo, an inspirational message, anything that can help add to my art making and attitude! Also stuff that I can use to make textures on my pieces, this can literally be anything.

I also love Kawaii and Stickers and Lisa Frank! Really no specifics for Kawaii, I like it all. but if I had to pick favorites I would say Piggy Girl, Gudetama, and Rilakkuma. Animal related Kawaii are probably the best. I trade and swap stickers so any kind will do.

Socks! Any type and colour, I love fun ones. But I do not like knee socks, they don't fit on my calves so well. So ankle socks please.

Noticed that some swaps may have sweets involved. While I do eat chocolate and enjoy it, I like fruity and sour candy much more! Things like Bottlecaps, Sweet Tarts, Warheads, Airheads, Nerds, Zots, etc. are great! Also love peanut butter, caramel, and cheese lol. I am NOT allergic to anything, but hate anything with even a little bit of spice. Not much of a tea drinker either, but love some cocoa.

Flake List

Sorry that this had to be added, but it happens, so far only been flaked twice, both times by the coordinators of the swap!

Comment: Thank you for the Orangatan card. The picture looks like out youngest Udara who is 1 1/2 years old. I would love to go to the St Louis zoo sometime. I have been to St Louis a couple of times but I didn't know about the zoo then. The last few times I went to our zoo they only had the Lenticular cards which are too expensive for my budget.

Hey Deirde, I messaged you last week but I see you haven't logged back in yet. I'm missing a swap from you if you could please make sure to check your messages when you're back. Thanks!

Thank you for the returned postcard for the Send 4 Keep 1 swap! I was starting to worry the cards hadn't found you yet :O The Sharpie definitely worked on the card - good choice!

Hi there. I was checking on a rating for CPG Jan '23 Senders Choice PC - US. I have a picture of the post card if that would help. If you haven't received it, please let me know. I did try contacting you via PM last week but the message has not been read. Thank you.
