About Me

Expressing myself through art has been something I felt like I never fully fleshed out, so here I am! I graduated with a degree in psychology so I have always enjoyed different perspectives. Hopefully I can create and share with others what is on my mind through the form of art. Vintage style has always been of interest to me aesthetically, but I tend to make things that are more eclectic and draws influence from pop art. (I still style with the former aesthetic though!) Sometimes I take pictures and heavily edit them to create a whole new image (my avi was originally just a picture of branches). Although, I do not tend to create digitally and prefer crafting with paper and miscellaneous materials. I usually have multiple projects going on, but I always try to make time for creativity.

I am looking forward to expanding to more crafts such as tags and zines. I'm still in the process of organizing my paper craft stuff so I hope once all the stuff are neat, I'll be able to create more efficiently.

Postcards

I am a proud supporter of Postcrossing and have been exchanging postcards for years now. In the past years, I've accumulated various themes including art exhibit collections, vintage style illustrations, dogs, cats, coloring pages, and many more. When it comes to receiving them, I love vintage (or styled) and handmade postcards. Specifically with the vintage ones, I like vacation remembrances, holiday themed, and advertisements. I'm not a fan of receiving multi-view, cityscapes, and insects or arachnids.

Goodies

Along with a variety of postcards, I also enjoy having different kinds of washi tape, stickers, and paper ephemera. I love the vintage inspired holiday themes (Christmas and Halloween) anytime of the year. I love sharing them as much as I do buying them!

Things I love getting from swaps:

washi tape samples

vintage (style) postcards and paper ephemera

address label stickers

unused US stamps

decorated envelopes

bandaids with a unique design

Regarding edible goodies, I have a sweet tooth for chocolate. I'm picky though, so here are some of my preferences:

milk/dark chocolate (not a fan of white)

love honeycomb! wafer, biscuit, toffee

nuts (almond, peanut, pistachio, or macadamia ONLY (allergic to walnuts and pecans)

don’t like fruit or alcohol flavored

Most days, I start off my day with coffee, but I also drink tea every now and then. I'm always interested in trying novelty snacks, but I am allergic to walnuts and pecans so please steer clear from sending anything with those in it.

I've been getting more into tea to subside nausea so I'd love some mint tea! Green tea has been working too, but I don't like the flavor as much. Thanks y'all for the mint tea -- keep them coming!

Favorite Music

When I like something, I tend to share it with others. So I often make playlists. I like to think that I listen to a variety of music, but Spotify only recognizes my top genres as "Alternative" and Rock. When I'm driving, I listen to radio stations that broadcast classic rock and hip hop/rap. My favorites are Tame Impala, the Arctic Monkeys, Fleetwood Mac, and the Cranberries. I have so much fun dancing to disco too! It feels as though my music taste expands every year and the exploration of good music won't ever cease. Always open to receiving playlists that have a theme (and a title).

Collections

There are a couple of things that I collect:

candles (floral, earthy (pine, tea tree!), fresh laundry)

pins & patches

Furbies (and other niche 90s memorabilia)

Troll dolls (Russ)

Kewpies merch

vintage Campbell's Kids merch

Smiski & Sonny Angel figurines

vintage psychology & philosophy books

Favorite Television

I am definitely more of a tv watcher than a film enthusiast (though I'm working on the latter). It would be too much trouble to type up an exhausted list of all that I have watched, so genres should suffice! TV shows typically check off at least one of these categories: crime drama, fantasy, comedy, and/or romance. If I had to pick one favorite tv show, it would be The Magicians. When it comes to movies, I actually watch a lot of horror (though I don't want any sentiment of that for incoming swaps). Next up would be thriller/action. I am open to recommendations for very niche films that leave me questioning what I just watched, or even question things in the real world...

I have a subscription to Shudder so if anyone has any recommendations please send them my way (even films that aren't provided via that service). I care more for supernatural and psychological thrillers (not so into gore and zombies).

I've been watching more animated content lately. Just finished Akame no Kill and the Dragon Prince. If you would like to recommend a show to me, I prefer fantasy and adventure shows. Storylines like Avatar: The Last Airbender where they have powers and travel to all sorts of magical places with a team are my favorite! (I'm finishing up Demon Slayer right now). I am a bit picky about art styles and prefer "pretty" character designs. Incompetent main characters irk me (ie. Sailor Moon, but I enjoy the aesthetic and the culture still). I like the magical girl trope and have watched a bunch of those since childhood. The first anime I watched was Fushigi Yuugi, which is still similar to the content that I am interested in these days.

Dislikes

Even though I love nature, I would prefer to not get real leaves/petals/flowers nor feathers in the mail (seed packets are OK).

I am very particular about what I consider "cute" so it might be best to stay away from choosing goodies that might be considered that (unless it's what I explicitly mentioned (see "Collections")). I don't really care for Sanrio unless it's Kuromi or Gudetama.

I also have no use for erasers. I think a lot of people don't like these, but I also don't like reward, kiddie, or alphabet stickers. I would also prefer mail to not be scented, especially by smoke (unfortunately, I will just throw it out). I love candles, but I don't like the overtly sweet smells like cinnamon rolls or hot chocolate. Please keep these in mind. Thank you!

Comment: Thank you for sending the letter and goodies that unfortunately got rerouted. The ways of the USPS are a mystery. It's interesting that many of us with mental illness actually study it too. I took at least one course in college and have always done my research when taking different medications to treat my depression or anxiety. I hope you are able to seek therapy, even if it is virtual. I tried online therapy - which was just like text messages or emails back and forth on the therapy platform. I found it a bit frustrating and also expensive. But in the time of the pandemic, it was a good resource for me. Good luck and thanks for sharing so much of yourself! Take care!

Comment: Thank you for the resend for this swap. The card made me laugh. I think you were watching me clean out the fridge the other day. I'm sorry your mom had covid. It had to be very scary for all of you. My dad and I just got our 2nd vaccines so we're good. Now to get my husband vaccinated. Thank you too for the stamps, stickers and cute little card. Stamps can always be used as can the stickers. Thank you for making my day! :)

Comment: Normally I won't open a gift & I put it aside for December. But since I know what it is, I opened it straight away, hee! hee! Thank you very much for ordering me the Wild animal postcards and Yes, It was something I still wanted. I was going to order them soon. But It's a good thing I didn't, ha! But yeah, Amazon does do pretty good at sending what order for someone else. Amazon is my biggest downfall & so is Etsy. But good to hear, you got it fast delivery to you. Anyway my dear, Thank you so very much for this wonderful gift ! I love the PC's so much!
Response: So glad I beat you to it! Always great partnering with you :)
