30-something year old female living near San Francisco, part-time student, full time loving wife to a wonderful guy. I enjoy snail-mail and creating ATCs.
I contribute to various art subreddits on reddit, including r/RedditGetsDrawn and r/RedditGetsDrawnBadly. You can see the art on my DeviantArt page.
I just changed my personal info to reflect my married name. If you put either maiden or married name on the mail, it doesn't matter :)
Reality TV shows are my dirty little obsession. I love comedies, animated movies/tv, and movies based off of books. I also enjoy binge watching series while at the gym. We do not have cable or any tv service and watch exclusively online.
How I Met Your Mother
Reality competition series (Project Runway, Face Off, Jim Henson's Creature Shop, Big Brother)
Drama non-scripted reality programs (Teen Mom, Teen Mom 2, Storage Wars, Real House Wives of Whatever, My Super Sweet 16, My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding)
Any Gordon Ramsey production (Hells Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, Master Chef, Master Chef Junior, Hotel Hell)
Food competition shows (Top Chef, Chopped, Beat Bobby Flay, Iron Chef)
Animated series (Family Guy, Simpsons, South Park, BoJack Horseman, 90s cartoons)
HBO/Cinemax/Netfix specific programming (Six Feet Under, Big Love, House of Cards, Game of Thrones, The Tudors, Borgia, The Sopranos)
The Daily Show
BBC programming (Sherlock, Are you Being Served, Downton Abbey, Dr. Martin)
The audio content that I've been listening to lately has been podcasts like "My Brother, Brother, and Me" and "The Bugle". I also listen to several stations on Pandora.
I love reading Mysteries, Crime Novels, Fiction, Non-Fiction, and Young Adult.
ABOUT THOSE ONES....I swapped a LOT here a number of years ago and I moved across the country from the east coast to west coast. At the time I was signed up for a whole handful of swaps, most of them fairly easy (email) and I just completely failed. It all hit me at once around the same time. I was overwhelmed by real life stuff and neglected to do the right thing and drop swaps. By the time I realized that I what was happening, the ones had piled up. I was so ashamed that I just logged out and didn't come back for three years. I'm wanting to get back into swapping very badly, especially Art cards. ATCs were the one thing I was actually really good with (I have an art background). I know the ones suck and there isn't much I can do about it, especially over three years on. I'm just hoping to be given another chance to send out some pretty art. But if I don't meet the requirements then I totally understand. I screwed up and I have to deal with the consequences. I respect the rules and why they exist. :)
...popcorn (I can't have this due to a surgery procedure I had)
...religious iconography or bible quotes (I'm atheist)
...hard candies (same reason as popcorn)
...scraps of paper (I don't scrapbook and don't collage. All my ATCs are hand illustrated.)
...candy (I have a low tolerance for sugar)
...used stamps (I don't collect used stamps but if you do I'll send you the ones I cut off of received mail)
...coupons (Unless you shop at Safeway, but generally the things I buy are not the same as what you buy. If I want coupons I'll send up for a coupon specific swap :D )
...ATCs completely or mostly covered in glitter (It makes a big mess)
...ATC blanks (especially watercolor paper)
...stickers (even Teacher Reward stickers)
...sketches that you don't think are good enough to keep and want to throw away.
...dog related snacks for small dogs
...low sugar or no sugar added drink mixes
...Crystal Light mix for water
...blank index cards
...Japanese/Korean/Kawaii stationary (sets or single sheets/envelopes)
I never require nor expect anyone who I swap with to send me anything outside of what is being swapped. However, it is always a sweet surprise if that happens and I am forever grateful.
In case you want to know what drives me NUTS...
...loud gum chewing ...rap music/rap icons ...cats doing stupid things ...politics ...anything related to any conflict about Israel/gaza strip ...religion ...My mother-in-law ...stepping in dog poop ...ants, spiders, cockroaches ...really poorly produced animated cartoons on low budgets ...crappy art
