About Me

Hola, my name's Jessie! I enjoy movies, music, painting, and random crafting projects, and I'm look forward to the new art I find through this to admire and inspire me.

I'm somewhere around 30 years old. I have 2 of the sweetest chihuahuas you'd ever meet, Loki and Dexter. They are my children, but my cat, Judas is my familiar! He follows me around everywhere and we just get each other. Update: A new polydactyl kitten has been added to the family named Toby, and he has the biggest purr and so much spunk already! I'm an INFP, Aquarius, Ravenclaw, and Team Valor for those of you that play Pokemon GO! (My trainer code is 5137 4991 4113 - feel free to add me)

My craft stuff will probably always be the biggest space consumer in my place, so I joined this to help put it to good use! I'm a bit quiet, but I love making new friends & discussing movies, music, shows, and stories, mostly. I'm part hippy, part metal head, part witch, part nerd, & part mermaid.

I cannot stress how much I love anything nautical! Vintage gothic and psychedelic/bohemian are a couple other of my favorites when it comes to home decor, and if I like the art I get through swaps enough, I try to find a place to display it, especially in those 3 categories. Mushrooms are included in the psychedelic category, but I love all mushroom stuff, including more vintage/biology book styles of art.


FYI I use a sponge pen for sealing envelopes, so water is used, not saliva.

I pledge to rate
I give hearts based on effort. Be that how much you put into your art, or, especially for postcards, whether or not you took the time to look at my profile and pick something special to my taste, or for non-profile based, at least wrote or sent me something interesting, these all fit in that category. I appreciate the same!

I mark sent when the mail is "out of my hands," as per Swapbot rules, which in most cases, means my mailbox. Therefore postmark may be a day or two after that, but I do try to get them out asap, before the deadline.

I also pledge: To always send my swaps on time, or IF some crisis comes up, to message you ahead of time about it being sent late. I am NOT a flaker, so please message me if you don't receive something and are worried! I've gotten to a point now where I send most stuff off well before the deadline. I have, however, lost much faith in the US Postal system - It makes me understanding of others' lost swaps, as long as they do me the same courtesy I would do them, by messaging before the deadline about sending a late swap, keeping in close contact, and re-sending when necessary.

Favorite Movies

  • I Heart Huckabees is my favorite movie. I love existential movies/conversations, especially when combined with humor. Life is absurd, and many times terrifying, and I don't think I'd survive it if I couldn't laugh about it.
  • Pretty much any pop culture movie, except I only keep up about halfway on super hero movies. Not a big fan of action.
  • Horror movies, especially the old 80's/90's ones

TV shows

Too many to count, but I will note I'm a big fan of cartoons geared toward adults, like Venture Brothers (and pretty much anything adultswim), Gravity Falls, Midnight Gospel, and of course Adventure Time and anime.


  • Favorite colors: Any shade of red or teal, especially dark, saturated shades

  • Address labels, now that I'm FINALLY in a place I'll being staying for some time

  • Adventure Time - I love ALLL the characters, but my absolute favorites are Marceline and Bubblegum
  • Alphonse Mucha
  • Animals in clothing, especially formal wear
  • Anime
  • Avocados
  • Bookmarks
  • Boston Terriers / Frenchies
  • Cats
  • Circular punchies - if you can do unique 1" ones (for bottle cap magnets)
  • Circus & flow art
  • Colorful messages
  • Cool textures
  • Deadly or otherwise odd or rare plants
  • Dinosaurs & dinosaur birds (ostriches, emus, magpies, geese)
  • Embossed images, cards, etc.
  • Embellishments
  • Envelopes. Bought & made are both great, as long as they're not plain!
  • Ferrets/ weasels
  • Flamingos
  • Gelly Prints
  • Hearts, especially anatomical
  • Hemp or leather cord
  • Horror and creepy things
  • Hot wax stamps
  • Inappropriate humor, as long as it's not racist, homophobic, etc.
  • Kawaii
  • Krampus
  • Lace
  • Llamas
  • Lilies - tiger lilies are my favorite flower
  • Mandalas/ bohemian patterns / psychedelic
  • Mario Bros. - favorite characters are Yoshi, Birdo, Toad, Shy Guy, and Princess Peach
  • Moths, especially lunar
  • Mushrooms
  • Music
  • anything Nautical!!! Especially mermaids, piratey things, narwhals, & creatures with tentacles
  • Occult
  • Opossums
  • Organic beads/ charms (glass, stone, wood, etc)
  • Otters
  • Painting - acrylic & watercolor
  • Phantasmagoria, like Alice in Wonderland
  • Pinups
  • Postcards
  • Quirky / odd
  • Raccoons
  • Recycled book pages or fabric
  • Risque
  • Shabby chic
  • Snails
  • Space
  • Stamps
  • Stencils
  • Steampunk/ dystopian
  • Succulents, but not spiky cacti
  • Sushi
  • Teapots/ Tea - art or the real thing. My favorites are black tea and fruity/ginger, but I'll try anything
  • Unicorns
  • Vintage/ retro, especially antique portraits, or "ghost" photos, as they're sometimes known
  • Washi tape
  • Witchcraft
  • Woodland animals (Foxes, birds/ owls, pixies and other fantasy creatures, etc)
  • Zazzle
  • Zodiacs

  • ATC Note: I'm on the hunt for some quality coffee ATC's at the moment for a home decor project I have in mind.

  • Since I join homemade ornament swaps some years, my tree is now Krampus themed, so even if Krampus is too challenging, I would love ornaments in the red/black/vintage scheme of colors to add to it!


In General

  • Not a big fan of yellow
  • Religion, unless it's satirical
  • Kid stuff
  • Bugs
  • Trypophobia triggers. Fractals are an exception; even though they still trigger it a little, I love them a lot.
  • Disney, Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, etc.
  • Modern art
  • Southwest tribal style
  • Country living
  • Scented stuff - I'm picky
  • (For Type 3 handmade swaps) Sticker slapping. I love stickers, but that's not considered original art in my opinion. You don't have to be a savant for me to appreciate your hand-made art. As long as you put in the effort. :)
  • When I'm not rated after I put my effort and time into a swap. Please don't be that person. And absolutely feel free to message me if I haven't rated you in a timely manner. That pretty much always means I didn't receive it, and you get extra props if you're pro-active about checking on that.


I really don't like anything generic, especially touristy! Even if it's vintage. Please save those for someone who will appreciate it.

PLEASE no Disney, Looney Tunes, or otherwise kiddy cards. I've never been a fan, and don't have any kids to share it with. I like adult-friendly cartoons only.

Not a fan of scenery / landscape postcards. I'd much prefer the weirdest PC you've got!


I currently have tons of Alice in Wonderland postcards and Adventure Time. Feel free to message me a request if I am sending to you for a swap, or if you want to do a private swap for one. I love receiving hearts, and will always do my best to please!

Comment: Gorgeous I love it! Ty
Comment: I love the card. Tiny bottom edge ripped off on left side. I don't like to send these fragile cards naked through the mail system. Some don't make the trip well.
Response: Thanks for the feedback! I was worried about that, never sent one so old before. It felt weird to send naked, but at the same time that was their intended purpose! I'll have to remember to only send the antique ones in an envie from now on. :)
Comment: This was such a cool swap. You are so thoughtful and the decoration including the stamp was awesome!!!!
Response: Aaawe, thanks!
Comment: Thanks for choosing turquoise! This is a fun package of goodies that I will enjoy playing with. That dog on the front of the card is hilarious! I see that you live in Mesa. I lived in Scottsdale for a few years until my husband's job took us elsewhere. I'm also a native Arizonan, but I love living in the NW.
Comment: Fun stuff I can use on scrapbook pages and cards. Thanks

Comment: What a great postcard! Thanks! If we weren’t already experiencing an unexpected virus pandemic, the fires and heat and storms might seem even more dramatic. Yes, the earth opening up sounds plausible! Haha!
Response: For real though! Lol stay safe doll

Comment: Thanks for the bag! Happy to pass it along in the next round.
Comment: Thank you! I loved my card and the word printed on it will be on my list of favorite words. Take care and keep on swapping...
Comment: Hi Jessie, Thanks for the mummy ATC; was he only supposed to have one eye?
Response: Oh no, he wasn't, that's so sad! He definitely had two when I put him in the envelope, but I guess the glue didn't hold up through the mail. :( I sent you a PM to see about fixing that.
