In 2012 there were a few rough patches for me that ultimately took me away from Swap-Bot and other real life commitments. All of the swaps I previously missed have since been closed. I have contacted anyone still active in attempts to fulfill the old swaps, but not everyone has responded. There was no ill intention. I signed up for swaps with the full intention of fulfilling them. After a couple years now of missing Swap-Bot and this creative outlet, I'm hoping to slowly rejoin this community.
Any concerns, please message me.
Anywho, about me. I'm 31 years old, MSW student interning at a Hospice. I have two cats (Swoop & Sparrow) who I'm obsessed with. I love sending mail, journaling and collaging, playing video games, reading, cross stitching, doing the newspaper puzzles, watching YouTube videos, and following the news and politics (though I don't intend to mix news/politics here).
The Office, Westworld, Survivor, Twilight Zone, Black Mirror, Psych, What We Do in the Shadows, Masked Singer
A Night at the Opera, Burn After Reading, Contact, Pride & Prejudice, The African Queen, The Red Violin
Harry Potter, One Hundred Years of Solitud, Paper Towns, The Stranger, We, Wuthering Heights
I will adore any postcard. It's all about getting something in the mail. For some reason everything just seems a little more special when it comes from someplace and someone else.
There of course a few favorites:
-Artwork (famous art or from a museum, or original art, local art, whatever)
-Space related (NASA, space programs, astronauts, celestial objects)
-Single View (especially of popular tourist attractions, or with name of city or state or country; scenery; buildings)
-Handmade (photography especially, but collages and everything else is good too)
X Not a fan of Christmas cards, at least not during the summer. Wait for Christmastime.
-Cool postage stamps (used or new)
-Deco Tape or Washi Tape
-Food (pictures, recipes, whatever; I love all food pretty much, sweet and savory, no allergies, it's all good.)
-Mail-Art (if you're feeling up to it, decorate!)
-Postcards, handmade stuff, collages, ATC's, zines/minizines
-Puzzles and brain teasers
-Science related stuff (especially astronomy, outer space, dark matter, black holes, etc.) Whether it's a magazine article, pictures of the night sky, pictures of science looking stuff, or questions or conversation starters in your letter or postcard, whatever.
-TV and movie references (especially if they're from my favorites)
