About Me

I'm an RN in Minnesota. Dog Mom. Grandma. Wildly inappropriate (at appropriate times).

I ALWAYS send on time. Period. If you don't receive, please let me know ASAP and I will make it right.

I click "sent" when I put items in the mailbox at the post office; it might be after the last 'pick up' time, so possibly postmarked the next day. I seldom wait until the last day to mail.


(don't stress, I enjoy pretty much everything that isn't on my 'dislikes' list).

Letter/envelope sets, enamel pins, embroidered patches. ATCs and ATCoins (not 'sticker slapped', any media).

Krampus in any form

Anatomical prints/images/illustrations, Skulls and skeletons, Vintage horror, Sci-fi, Vintage nurses, especially WWII era

COOKIE MONSTER!!!! Oscar, Big Bird, Grover, Yip Yips, Kermit, Animal, Beaker, the Swedish Chef

Mr. Rogers

Female Villains Gargoyles, the more grotesque the better

Stained glass windows, especially geometric and non-religious.

Foreign language text (newspapers, scrapbook paper, magazines, especially with different alphabets/scripts)

Dark purple, jewel tones

Quality over quantity.

Halloween (grown-up, not childish), Grown-up Gothic aesthetic, Steampunk, and Victorian. Celtic, Nordic/Icelandic.


Swearing. You will not offend me with the "F-bomb". Same with risque or 'naughty' images (just not flat-out pornography please)

Dragonflies, seahorses, hedgehogs

Catahoulas, Corgis, Golden Retrievers (All my fur friends were rescues)

Amethyst, hematite, lapis lazuli, carnelian, 'snowflake obsidian'.



Feminist art, protest art, advertising art. Subversive art.

Public broadcasting (tv and radio)

International travel (I miss it so much!)

Fountain pens, dip pens, and pretty ink. (I gravitate towards dark purples) Wax seals. Making my own ink from plants (let me know if you'd like to trade for some)

Art and Art History, especially European Renaissance, Icelandic and Nordic, Roman and pre-Roman, Islamic, African and African-American, and all things Expressionist. Vintage and historical erotic images.

Historical nurse/medical art/posters, Eco- and 'green' living, repurposing and upcycling

Whisky, whiskey, and Scotch. (Yet, I've never been drunk. Go figure.)

Modern/urban homesteading. Food preservation. Baking, cooking, candy-making. Kitchen alchemy.

Favorite Crafts

Favorite crafts to do:

Knitting/crochet, ATCards/coins, handmade postcards, and other mini works of art, useful items, Aromatherapy items, Jewelry, Sewing/quilting, Amigurumi (both knit and crochet), Challenges that make me 'think outside the box', Recycled items into crafts, Origami and other folded/manipulated paper crafts

Working on my watercolor skills (watercolor has always vexed me... I will eventually conquer it)

Favorite Movies, Music, Media

Most musicals. Most local theater. Some national productions (when I'm lucky enough to go)


Killing Eve, Outlander, Dexter, Counterpart, Dark, Foreign movies, Good (and bad) Vampire movies, Great British Baking Show, Monty Python, satire, and dark humor. Sci-fi, dystopian, and post-apocalyptic. Stupid funny (i.e. Big Mouth, Bad Santa, etc)

Please Don't Send:


"Cute" or childish items, 'kawaii', and the like.

Glitter. Seriously. NO LOOSE GLITTER! (irridescent ink, etc, is OK if the glitter will not come off)

Overly 'girly' items (specifically requested for my daughter or granddaughter)

Racism, hate, Science denial.

Makeup/bath/body products (skin is too sensitive, fragrances often give me migraines)

Tea, coffee, and food. (I like the packaging, but I'm picky about what I eat/drink)

Bootlegged items (please respect copyright)

Anything that smells of smoke, (Illicit) drug or pot imagery

NO religious or political themes (unless the swap is specifically for them), tracts, and the like.

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful ATC and the text extras. It's been hot here the last few weeks. I'm glad you got a chance to visit the area and see the cicadas, this was my first year experiencing them and I find them fascinating. I hope you are able to visit "Washington D.D.C." again soon LOL <3

Comment: Well, total success!! I love it! The guy looks like he belongs strumming on the sidewalk, and the gal, she looks like she is sharing her wine in the waters of Venice. Nice Bacchus poetry...perfect touch! Yay! I have had wine in Italy... it was fabulous. was on a wine tour with 14 other people. But, I am glad I learned to to like dry red wines before I went (it took over a year).... that's mostly what the 20+ vinyards had. No sweet whites. But it was a picture perfect postcard everywhere we went ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for the great swap! Extra ๐Ÿ–คs. ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™โค๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’›

jannieb rated for USATC: Free Theme ATC Coin Swap on Jun 11, 2021
Comment: Thank you for the amazing ATC coin. the embossing is great! I hardly ever emboss b/c it is such a pain to drag out all the stuff & the loose powder & everything. I really appreciate that it matches the lovely ATC that you sent for another swap too. Happy Swapping!
