About Me

Howdy there!

My name is Susan, I'm cool and awesome.

I have a sexy weirdo husband named Brenden.

This is us at top cuteness-

Hubby and I

We have a lovely little kitty cat furbaby named Cakey. She loves to play fetch and enjoys lots of belly rubbins.

Cakey the Cat

I like spooky things, and super cute things. Super cute spooky things too. :P!!

Most people don't know this about me, but I suffer from OCD, depression, and general anxiety. It makes making friends difficult, so I would love to make friends with a couple people here that have some similar interests as me and become pen pals. I would love to communicate with others that love Halloween as much as I do. :) It would be nice to send each other happy mail to encourage each other and brighten our days. Age doesn't matter to me. PM me if you're interested.

Favorite Music

Oingo Boingo, Sufjan Stevens, Iron and Wine, The Decemberists, The Beatles, STYX, Margot and the Nuclear So & So's, Tom Waits, Weird Al, Squirrel Nut Zippers, most 80s music, and I also love Psychobilly music. My husband is a musician and I love his music. :)

Favorite Books

I am a fan of the Harry Potter series. The Hunger Games. Steven King is great. I did like the Watchmen graphic novel, and I love Ghost World. I like some underground comics.

Favorite Movies

Arachnophobia, The Shape of Water, Get Low, Ghost World, The Dark Knight, Stranger than Fiction, Lost in Translation, UP, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, Harry Potter series, Hunger Games series, Coraline, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Benny and Joon, Bridesmaids, The Heat, Hocus Pocus, Trick 'r Treat, Muppet Treasure Island, Spy, Big Eyes, The Skeleton Twins, Practical Magic, good horror movies, awesomely bad horror movies, Tim Burton movies, and I loooove Hayao Miyazaki films! I also love watching movies with RIFFTRAX!

Favorite Television

The Handmaid's Tale, Stranger Things, MST3K, 3rd Rock from the Sun, NCIS, Bob's Burgers, King of the Hill, The Simpsons, Futurama, Monk, Cupcake Wars, Chopped, American Horror Story, Supernatural, My Little Pony, South Park, Portlandia, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and I feel quite nostalgic about 90's Nickelodeon.

Favorite Crafts

Creating art, sewing, paper crafts, stamp making, jewelry making, baking, painting, doodlin', upcycling. I want to get into making mini zines. I love trying new crafts! If anyone is a sewing machine master and wants to help instruct me on how to use mine that would be awesome. I think I just have a plain ol' Singer.


Halloween, crafts, art, vintage stuff, baking, cupcakes, moons, crescent moons, skulls, skeletons, mushrooms, CATS, willow trees, monsters, ghosties, witches- especially the classic green ones, kawaii stuff, tiny figures, children's books, creepy-cute things, skeleton keys, long necklaces.

I LOVE Gudetama the lazy egg!:3

Halloween is my favorite holiday. Please do not give me Halloween items in swaps for other holidays.

Food/drinks- I don't have any food allergies but I prefer not to get sweets unless a swap calls for it. Halloween time is a bit different since my husband and I like trying spooky treats of all kinds. I love both dark and milk chocolate. Blueberry coffee and teas are my fave. Prefer herbal or green teas. I enjoy Kind bars, light popcorn, almost anything with peanut butter or nuts. I do love trying anything new or interesting!

My favorite color is PURPLE. I also love pink! Yellows are great too.

I love purses, tote bags, and wristlets! Handmade is welcome!

SKULLS and SKELETONS are awesome!

Scents I love: PATCHOULI, anything deep and sensual, fruity, dragon's blood, sugary sweet scents


Not a fan of floral scents.

Do not send me plastic foodware like plates or cups.

DO NOT SEND ME KIDS TOYS. I wouldn't like to receive tiny kid's toys like bubbles, balls, etc, I don't have children. Unless those things are vintage and/or creepy.

Please, no keychains. I do not collect them.

Please, no Disney items.

Please, no grapefruit scented or flavored items.

Please do not send me used items unless the swap is for vintage or thrifted items.

Please don't send me Halloween items in swaps for holidays other than Halloween, I like to keep those holidays separate. :)
