About Me

General Housekeeping - 09.29.2021

Unfortunately due to health issues, graduate school, and other factors I will be stepping back from Swap-bot for awhile. I need to focus on my wellbeing as well as academic and professional goals for awhile, but once i'm feeling a little bit more on stable ground I may return at a later time, so this isn't goodbye forever!

Please keep in touch or reach out if you ever want to do a low stakes, but creative private swap. I enjoy the community I have found here.

All final swaps before the hiatus are being wrapped up currently and I will be checking in to make sure they arrive and ratings are done.

Hope you are all doing well & staying safe!

If you have any questions/concerns please send me a DM through the SB messaging system!

As a Minnesotan my heart is feeling so heavy right now. #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeforGeorgeFloyd #JusticeforBreonnaTaylor #NoJusticeNoPeace #DefundthePolice


Hello hello Everyone!

My name is Megan and I live in the quiet Twin City of St. Paul, MN.
I'm a hella queer non-binary "twenty something" and my pronouns are they/them/theirs.
I have a marvelous wife who works in project management and software development, and Radish the adorable and sassy long-haired cat.

Radish

As for the cat, she has long hair and it gets EVERYWHERE despite my best efforts. I do my best to keep her out of my crafting supplies and away from swaps, but unfortunately I can't guarantee a completely cat hair/dander free swap. If you have a severe cat allergy let me know so we can work something out! :)

I am a former Functional Apparel Design Research Fellow at Harvard University and a current Master's student at the University of Minnesota. I mainly work on projects and research involving wearable medical & industrial devices and soft robots. I'm interested in human centered design, human factors/ergonomics, functional apparel design, adaptive/accessible design, and wearable technology.

Want to see some examples of work I’ve done?

The glove project I worked on was exhibited during the Cooper-Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum Design Triennial in 2018.

Soft Robotic Glove

See Bill Gates try on a glove I made and check out the lab I work in!

Bill Meets Bots

Check out the glove and shoulder projects I work on!

Soft Robotic Glove


New to Gender Neutral Pronouns?

As a non-binary person I personally use the gender neutral pronouns they/them/theirs. Many other sets of gender neutral pronouns exist, but I am most comfortable with they/them pronouns.

Want some background on Singular They and gender neutral pronouns?
Grammarly.com and Nerdist have got you covered!

Thank you for respecting my pronouns! :)

I love upcycling materials into my art or stationary whenever I can and breathing new life into old materials.

Here is a patch I recently made for a swap!

Cat patch


SEWING

I learned how to sew from my grandma as a child and I haven't stopped since! I sewed a lot of costumes growing up and loved the "clothes you make" project area during my time in 4H.

I graduated with a BS in Apparel Design from the University of Minnesota in 2017.
My main interests are tailoring, androgynous/gender neutral apparel, functional design, technical design, and wearable technology.

I am something of an aspiring quilter. I enjoy making "Modern" style quilts & textile art projects. I just finished my first hand quilted quilt and am prepping my fabric for the next one. I really like big, bold colors and prints for quilts with simple yet visually interesting blocks

I also enjoy tailoring and shirtmaking. I focused on wovens and flat patterning techniques in school and I really love the satisfaction of getting that perfect fit with obsessively aligned details. There are few things more satisfying than perfectly matched plaids, stripes, and patterns.

Now that the burnout of school has worn off somewhat I'm excited to start playing around with knit fabrics and making some biking gear for myself.

I'm also finding myself creeping back into the world of costumemaking. I'm thinking of making a Robin costume (of Batman fame) or Legend of Zelda character next!

Below is a picture from my senior design project from undergrad! My line was inspired by birds and I made every outfit with my own two hands. I even hand dyed the shirt panels! :)

AVES

Likes, Dislikes, and Wish List

Please don't send extras unless the swap requires it or is related to my profile likes.

I want less clutter in my life, so thank you for not sending unrelated extras! I rate on the quality and thoughtfulness of the swap, not the extra elements included within. :)


POST CARDS:

I prefer postcards to be sent naked unless specified in the swap guidelines. While I don't mind touristy ones I really love receiving the following:

  • I am looking for a postcard of the Uffington White Horse (hill figure) in Oxfordshire, England and any postcard(s) dealing with letterboxing - bonus points if its from Dartmoor National Park.

  • I don't mind free postcards or ad postcards so long as they have artistic merit/look cool. I have some cool freebie postcards from breweries & a local restaurant if anyone is interested in swapping them!

Nudity is totally fine by me be it photography, sculpture, paintings, art related, etc.

I love contemporary pin-up style art, burlesque, whimsical nudes, kink, queer bodies, irreverent humor, profanity, political art/humor, and art transcending the norms.

I'm not easy to offend, however I don't enjoy graphic violence against women, gore for the sake of gore, and bigotry.


COLORS/THEMES

My favorite colors include:

Purples - Blues - Indigo - Greys - Oranges

I typically enjoy bright "happy" colors, rich jewel tones, and neutrals (so basically most colors, I know)

As for themes I love practically anything regarding birds, deer (and other antlered creatures), outer space, plants, mushrooms, geometric shapes, and marine life.

I also really enjoy art deco, art nouveau, retro-futurism, Bauhaus, industrial, minimalist, modern/contemporary, "spooky", and macabre themes. I also enjoy classic and modern horror & sci-fi.


ATC THEMES

For ATC swaps & profile based ATC's I would really enjoy (but don't feel required/confined) to these particular themes:

  • Legend of Zelda
  • Pokemon
  • Dungeons & Dragons
  • Star Trek!
  • Star Wars (I would never say no to more baby yoda in my life)
  • Space themed (planets, stars, galaxy, space ships, etc)
  • Sci-fi, robots, andriods & Retrofuturism
  • Queer stuff! Pride flags, notable figures, queer resistance art - you name it, I want it!
  • Botanical/Plants & Mushrooms
  • Weird stuff, macabre stuff, skulls & oddities
  • Fantasy & mythological creatures
  • Birds, deer, and whales
  • Magic the Gathering

FABRIC:

In general I tend to only work with natural textiles and fiber. Synthetic textiles certainly have their place, I prefer to work with natural fiber whenever I can.

  • Birds, deer, wildlife
  • Mushrooms, plants
  • Contemporary/modern florals & botanicals
  • Minimalist geometric designs (especially triangles and hexagons)
  • Solids in bright, neutral, or jewel tone colors
  • I absolutely adore natural indigo textiles & dyes
  • Purple, purple, purple - especially plum, royal, and lavender
  • I don't like most Batik or tie dye fabric.
  • No kiddy/child/baby related prints please

  • For quilting swaps: 100% cotton textiles please

  • I especially like quilting prints from Cotton+Steel, Rifle Paper Co., Ruby Star Society, and I love Japanese quilting cotton, so luxurious to work with!

TEAS/BEVERAGES:

For tea I prefer:

  • Fruity teas are my absolute favorite!

  • Herbal teas/infusions (mints are my favorite)

  • "Woodsy"/"Smokey" teas (especially spruce/evergreen teas)

  • I love spicy teas

  • Flavored black & green teas, preferably not "plain"

  • Surprise me, I love trying new things!

Hot Chocolate:

  • I LOVE malty hot chocolates and spicy hot chocolates

  • Please no mint-chocolate or white chocolate flavors, thank you!


FOODS

I enjoy:

  • Meat jerky
  • Vegan jerky
  • Sour candies!
  • Gummy candies (especially sour ones)
  • Savory packaged snacks
  • Hazelnuts & hazelnut flavored candies/chocolate/food
  • Chocolates - dark or milk, no white (blech!)
  • Hot sauce
  • Local honey
  • Raw oysters (but please don't send them ;) )
  • Whole, un-ground spices (send me a PM first if you want to send those)
  • Whole bean coffee (no instant, pre-ground, or cups/pods)
  • Interesting non-perishable snacks from your country/locality!
  • I am a sparkling/carbonated water fiend! I usually drink at least 2 cans a day!
  • I love gin and gin cocktails so if you have a recipe you like send it along!
  • You can't send them, but I love craft beer, wine, and spirits! So if you know of any fun breweries to visit someday, wines to look for, and cocktail recipes I am all ears!

  • Also, I love trying new recipes! If you have a favorite (without tomatoes) send it along be it printed out, written on a scrap of paper, or on a recipe card (my holder can accommodate cards up to 4x6 inches).

The only food I don't really care for is tomatoes. I don't like them raw or cooked, even in sauces. So no tomato sauces, pizza with red sauce, salads (think caprese salads in this case, I do really enjoy salads without tomatoes!) , hotdishes/casseroles, etc. I'm a weirdo, I know!

If you are my partner in a recipe swap you can still send me dishes with tomatoes (unless the swap is profile specific) and I’ll rate a 5 (and maybe even a heart!). Don’t fear sending recipes with tomatoes to me, I have some sneaky ways I can adapt them or I’ll pass them along! :)

I'm an avid cook and baker, I love trying new things in the kitchen! I've dabbled in everything from bread baking, pastry making, candy making, cheese making, canning, pickling, dehydrating, grilling, and am starting to get a good season on my cast iron pans.

If you have any interesting cultural, seasonal, or regional recipes i'd love to hear more about them and even get the recipe to try at home. If want to talk cooking & baking, i'm your person!

I try to buy local, seasonal, and sustainable foods when I can. Making dishes that highlight local seasonal ingredients are always a treat and i'm lucky to have multiple summer & winter farmer's markets where I can meet new farmers & artisans. I love hearing about your favorite local food products!

DISLIKES/I DON'T HAVE ROOM:

Although I genuinely love swapping and receiving mail, I do have a few things i'm not a fan of personally and I don't have many people who I can pass them along to.

Many things on this list are also things that I don't necessarily dislike, but I just don't have use for or space to store it. I have limited space in my apartment for crafty things, so i'm very deliberate on what I "let it" to my life. Thanks for understanding!

  • Scented items (my partner is sensitive)
  • Mint-Chocolate, white chocolate, coconut, and banana flavored foods
  • Decaffeinated tea or coffee
  • No MLM (multi-level marketing/direct sales/pyramid scheme items or solicitations)
  • Dollar store/bin items
  • Adult coloring books, pages, postcards, etc.
  • Maps of cities, restaurant menus, brochures, etc. (unless it is relevant to the swap)
  • Die cut paper pieces, paper scraps, or misc. stamped images
  • Please no napkins, dollies, place mats, cupcake liners, single use utensils, toothpicks, etc.
  • Lace & ribbon
  • I don't use adhesive foam, puffy/"3D" stickers, or dimensional embellishments. They're fine if you send art using them, but I don't have a use for them.
  • Please no pencils, pens, paperclips, erasers, or planner supplies
  • Friendship books/sheets
  • Jewelry, cosmetics/make up & beauty products
  • Not a huge fun of "general" Disney products (Mickey Mouse & Crew, Disneyland/World, merch. etc)
  • I don't really care for Harry Potter or J.K Rowling
  • No child/baby/wedding related
  • No religious stuff please. I enjoy learning about interesting religious cultural traditions, mythology, history, and mysticism, but I don't want pamphlets, brochures, tracts, and the like.
  • NOTHING with "G*psy" in/on it, it is a slur y'all!
  • Any items that perpetuate cultural appropriation UNLESS it is from YOUR culture (dream catchers, "tribal" prints, white sage, etc.)
  • I prefer no "holiday mascot" related items (ex. santa & elves, snowmen, "cartoony" easter bunny, etc.)
  • I do however appreciate things with a more general seasonal theme such as mistletoe & holly, wreaths, snow, realistic rabbits, deer, cardinals, flowers & leaves, etc.

Other dislikes?

Patriotic stuff, fascists & nationalists, pro-military/pro-law enforcement/state-sanctioned violence & domestic terrorism (KKK, NRA, ICE, MAGA, ALT-Right), religious zealotry, cultural appropriation, xenophobia, racism, homophobia, transphobia, TERFs, SWERFS, RADFEMs, anti-vaxxers, climate change deniers, bigotry & prejudice of all kinds, you know - the usual stuff.

Ratings

September 29th, 2021

I am currently up to date in my archive here on SB (indicating that I have properly rated everyone & I have received swaps).
Please contact me if you believe you are missing a swap or rating from me. I do my best to be proactive and catch these sorts of things myself, but if something seems awry please feel free to reach out!

Rating Practices

I rate swaps when I receive them and will have a notification at the top of my profile if I won't be able to pick up mail for a period of time.

I rate fairly according to the rules laid out on the site, but I understand that life is hectic & unpredictable at times.
If you need to send late or are having issues with a swap please contact me as soon as possible so we can work things out.
I have no problem accommodating folks so long as you work with and communicate with me.

Hosting Practices

I pledge to angel every swap I host and I do my due diligence on vetting swaps I host to ensure there are no known problem swappers & flakers participating. I take hosting very seriously and am dedicated to making swapping a safe and enjoyable experience for all.

Post Office Situation

Mail service is generally reliable for me where I live and i'm lucky to have a mail slot in my building and a post office within sight of my apartment.
If a swap seems to have gone missing. I'm always happy to make it up to you and resend!

Due to my schedule I sometimes don't get swaps dropped off before mail has been picked for the day (last pick up is around 4:30 - 5pm in my area).
Therefore, sometimes post marks will be inaccurate by a day or two if I drop a swap off in the "blue box" after work or if the send by date falls on a USA federal holiday or Sunday.
I do my best to send before the first mail pick up & holidays, but I figured I would let folks know.

Digital Free Time

I don't typically log on to my computer in the evenings and rarely on the weekends (Sat/Sun). If I don't respond to a message immediately that is why. I like to keep evenings & the weekends "digital free" whenever possible. Thank you for understanding.

Questions?

Please contact me about regarding swaps, ratings, and whatever else you have a question about via the swap-bot messenger system.

Thanks for stopping by!

Comment: Thank you for sharing this lovely story with me. As I was reading it I realized I have never personally known a weaver. I know a lot of people who have had baby blankets made for them, of course, but no one who has had one hand woven for them by a grandparent. What a treasure! I hope you are able to find a way to continue to enjoy it for the rest of your life. Nice job. ❤️
Response: Thanks for hosting this swap, it was so fun actually thinking and remembering the origins of my blanket. It is certainly a cherished artifact of my life thus far.

Comment: This postcard is so perfect, coming from you. Very cool. Did you notice that when it's upside-down it looks like a glowing robot head? That's what I thought it was at first. LOL! Thanks for joining and for the inspiring quote :-)
Response: What can I say, i'm a person of many talents ;-) I didn't notice the robot though which is amazing!

Comment: You did an AMAZING job on Yennifer! Her hair is so neat. That dress is fantastic. I want one just like it. I'm so thrilled to have her. Thank you so much for Yennifer and for doing this swap with me!
Response: I'm glad you like her! It was so fun sewing all the little details and the eyes were unexpectedly fun as well! Thank you for doing this swap with me, it was super fun! Perhaps we'll give it another shot when the world is a little less wild!

No worries. I actually have the (flameless) candle burning in my mini dumpster right now. I once saw a fire station on fire when I was walking back from a party in college. How's that for irony?

I'm so glad you like it. It was difficult deciding which one to send you. I was toggling between your fave Pokemon list and the shop for quite a while. I have the ghost type one and also ordered the matching face mask. It's on pre-order so I don't get it until the end of this month or the beginning of September. I'm not a big Pokemon fan, but I have a soft spot in my heart for Gengar and Mimikyu.

Thank you for the "magical" birthday card and the raccoon sticker from Lydia Jean Art (I love that shop)! I think that's the cutest illustrated raccoon I've ever seen! She also sent a cute mushroom sticker and a PC with a birdhouse filled with birds. It was so kind of you to think of me. It made me feel really special.

Awww! Thank you for the sweet birthday wishes.
