About Me

Hello! I'm a longtime mailartist and penpaller. I'm on here mostly for small "random items" type swaps that allow me to pick out treasures to send you from my dragon's hoard of stationery, etc., but occasionally will do more involved swaps.

Favourite Crafts

acrylic painting; my usual style involves heavily diluting the paint so the results look a lot like watercolours:

Arabian ibis

poetry; I'm influenced by modern and contemporary Canadian poetry, surrealism, language poetry, and Stuff I Found On The Internet.

Favourite Craft Themes

  • birds (owls, pelicans, crows and magpies)
  • ocean (jellies, sea stars, algae)
  • space (stars, nebulae, planets and moons)
  • fantasy and science fiction (original or myth-based)
  • extinct animals (stegosaurus, dimetrodon, pterodactyl)
  • cities (skylines, signs, cities at night)
  • colour schemes (blue & turquoise, neon green & black, purple & black, pink & brown)

Wish List

Handmade

  • hand-drawn or painted postcard
  • mail in a decorated envelope
  • handmade envelopes
  • handmade stickers
  • your poems or short stories
  • handmade necklaces
  • handmade hair bows

Clippings

  • simple vegetarian recipes
  • poems you like
  • promotional materials from art shows
  • Sudoku puzzles
  • paper and magazine cut-outs related to my interests as I've got a traveler's journal I collage in. It has to be thin or regular weight paper; unfortunately I don't have a use for patterned cardstock or scrapbooking die-cuts.

Storebought items

  • kawaii stationery
  • colourful pens and Sharpies
  • adult colouring postcards (please only send the postcards, if possible; I have enough colouring sheets and books to last an eternity)

Odds and Ends

  • pretty much any stickers or washi samples or stationery you have lying around ;)
  • Some of my favourite characters that appear on stationery and stickers are Aggretsuko, Rilakkuma, Kuromi, Doc McStuffins, and the Tokidoki Mermicornos.

Tea (individually packaged, please)

  • with coconut
  • with vanilla
  • nettlewort
  • most teas, really, but please don't send mint or rooibos if you can avoid it

General Interests

Science, especially ecology.

Contemporary art

Poetry

Pop music, but for music swaps I'm interested in any musical genre.

Manga and comics, my respective favourites being Sailor Moon and Saga.

Kawaii. I'm not picky about it, so feel free to send any character or brand.

Angels

Thank you to @jannikinz , @Traceyk , @runswithscizzors , @dearguppy , and @mgallardo68 for angeling swaps for me.

Thank you to @RooBaRoo for my Swap-Bot icon.

Comment: Thank you for the postcard, Beth! It sounds like a nice place to go for vacation! Too many places become so touristy, so it's wonderful that Pelee Island is not like that.

Thank you for the surprise tag 😊 I’m very excited about the sticky fabric, I’ve never used that before

Thank you so much for the RAK of flaming cat/dumpster fire stickers! It was so incredibly sweet of you to think of me. They brought such a huge smile to my face when I opened them. I immediately texted a picture of them to my friend. I love the pocket you sent them in and the ephemera you included, too. I have a little surprise for you as well. I'll try and get it out in the mail tomorrow. Thanks again!

Lovely Swappers-R-Us - June Wishes -- Thanks for the wonderful package of assorted surprises. The postcard and stamps are perfect for my collections and my grand-daughter will love the stickers.

Thank you for the thoughtful and lovely things you sent me for my May wish list (LSRUS). The notepad you used is probably my favorite ever (I just got one and haven't used it yet), and the stickers are both gorgeous and adorable. My very favorites are the houses and clocks and plant house (did you look at my sticker wish list? We clearly have the same taste in such things!) ♥ Thank you for thinking of me, and have a lovely day!

I got you envelope for the Cheap Postage Pay It Back tag, thank you! I like everything you included...the happy mail stickers (the little mail truck especially) are my fav!
