About Me

Hi!

Me: tiny, kawaii, dangerous, artsy, caring, progressive, ally, carnivorous, asian, west virginian, hippie punk rock, art teacher, painter, graphic designer, maker, wife, mother of 2 really awesome girls. Cardigans, tattoos, musical theater, patterns, papers, delicious savory foods. That kind of sums it up, but not really.

General Loves

  • Zines- any, all, old, new, punk, feminist, crafty, whatever! Please send my way if you have any you want to get rid of or swap for =)
  • Handcrafted items and lots of beautiful crafty materials
  • Fun/pretty/unique stamps, pretty stickers
  • Mail Art
  • Graphic design, letterpress, illustration, animation
  • Pretty/fun patterns, prints, papers, and graphic textiles
  • Food! I love foods! New and exotic foods (I'm a foodie and I fear nothing).
  • Punk rock, unique tattoo aesthetic, rockabilly, pinup
  • Traveling, sight seeing, local histories
  • Weird and quirky, off-beat or unusual, strange and beautiful (yo gabba gabba, wes anderson, baz luhrman, yoshitomo nara... are just a few examples of visual styles I like)
  • Alice in Wonderland (not specific to the newest movie, but more so the book and all artistic interpretations)
  • Fashion, pretty clothes, grandma-style cardigans and accessories, and chunky funky accessories
  • Teals, pinks/magenta, and a combination of both, mustard yellow, chartreuse, and all kinds of beautiful color pallets and combinations
  • Music is life - live music is everything. Musicals!!! + Jack white, Arctic Monkeys, Postal Service, Tenacious D, Freddie Mercury, Jeff Mangum, Flogging Molly, Ben Folds, Blink 182, Weezer, DMB, etc etc etc. And I love discovering new music!
  • I'm getting into tarot and I'm really good at reading lenormand cards. I made my own deck and keep it in a little cigar box that I've filled with incense and herbs, tea candles, runes made from shark teeth, and crystals!
  • also starting to get into D&D but have never played lol!
  • My two sister tuxedo kitties, Freddie Mercury, whose name changed from Mercury to Terkury to Turkey because she's so fat, and Mr. Meowgi
  • Our SouthAfrican Mastiff, Pete

A Note About Swapping

If you haven't received anything from me several weeks after my send date (of course, allow more for international), PLEASE let me know so I can resolve and resend! =) I'll do it!

I always put 110% into what I send. Please be considerate and try to do the same :) I don't care at all if you're not a great artist and I'm really not picky about the types of things that I receive! but I do appreciate at least a little time and effort =) I would rather have thoughtful items sent closer to the deadline then something thrown together and sent early!

That said, I very much understand that everyone's tastes and styles are different and I always rate fairly and usually within 48 hrs of receiving an item.

For mail and packages

I'm really not picky at all--I love getting all kinds of things in the mail (as long as it's thoughtful and well put together of course :) )! See above and If you need some additional direction, here is what makes my mailbox happy:

  • thoughtfully handmade items
  • anything fun! I like bling and glitter sometimes, super cutesy/kawaii sometimes, big bright patterns and colors, puffy stickers, shiny things, googly eyes, etc.
  • quirky! If it's quirky, offbeat, or flat out weird, I'll like it. Think Wes Anderson, Yo Gabba Gabba, Superjail... google and like :)
  • lots of stamps and/or unique/fun/pretty stamps, if possible
  • I am not easily offended. I like cute but I also like dark ~ I enjoy pinups, oddities, goth, weirdo, bones, macabre, occult, etc. as much as the next gal :)

For postcards

I like all sorts of postcards. Even those generally considered free or crappy. I prefer stamps--lots of pretty or unique stamps, postmarks, and something (anything) written on the back. Otherwise, a postcard is a postcard!

General likes:

  • big letter/large letter postcards. They're so cool looking! Google for pics
  • map postcards
  • handmade postcards
  • weird or quirky or funny postcards
  • historical and/or geography-specific (cities, states, countries, landmarks, etc.)
  • If you don't have those, any will do :)
  • if possible, tell me about you and/or the place where you live and/or about the picture on the postcard. I don't get to travel as much as I used to so I love learning about places and their people through my postcard collection

General dislikes

I hate to add this category, because I'm generally happy to receive anything that meets swap requirements, but for the sake of my profile...

  • sloppy/thrown together/no-thought-or-care-put-in swaps. I'll love anything, highly artistic or not, but please spend a few moments on it before you send!
  • tea. I'm just not a tea drinker, but if you happen to send, I'll happily gift it to a friend :)
  • i'm not a huge fan of thank you cards. There are tons of pretty ones but I don't use them. I would be able to gift them to a friend if I ever got any though :)
  • anything that has the look of precious moments. i'm not crazy about it--unless it's super weird and awesome, in which case i'll probably like it

Comment: Miranda, Thanks for your question. That certainly was an interesting one. I definitely feel like I may have a "cancel action" function to me since I tend to forget where I am going in the middle of a trip. LOL. Thanks again for your response, I hope you had fun writing it up. Ana

Comment: Thanks for your chatty response! Yours was an interesting question. I don't have children of my own, but I always tell my students that they need to find something that makes them happy because they'll be doing it a long time! I hope you have a good, safe school year whatever it may look like!

Comment: Miranda, Hello my WV teacher friend! Thank you for the postcard. I actually don't think I've been to Babcock State Park, so I'm putting this on my list for whenever things go back to normal.
