About Me

38-year-old writer/zinester/photographer/archivist/activist living in Seattle with an awesome kitty. Wiccan, liberal, feminist, pansexual, native Texan, Capricorn, ENFP, Smith College grad, bookworm.

If you're interested in another place to do some fun swapping, please consider checking out my Facebook group. It's mainly focused on postcards, but there are other organized swaps of packages and other fun stuff!

I am also always looking for people to be regular penpals for trading postcards and/or letters--if you'd be interested please let me know!

I would rather not receive religious or conservative stuff, or anything non-vegetarian. Other than that I'm pretty open to receiving whatever! You are totally welcome to send me stuff involving sex, swearing, etc. My favorite color is purple, but I love most colors, especially a bunch of different ones in combination with each other!

ABOUT MY 1s: They are all from about a decade ago. I was dealing with some major mental health issues at the time and was not able to complete some swaps because of that. I am now doing some new treatments and doing a lot better, and am confident that it won't happen again. You'll see that the vast majority of my ratings are 5s. I hope all swap coordinators can be understanding about this.

PLEASE message me if you haven't received something from me! There's been so much weirdness going on with the mail lately so swaps are often not getting received even when they've definitely been sent. I will always be willing to resend if necessary!

Comment: Sorry for taking so long! I've been working on commissions and lost track of days and time. I didn't really do anything to prepare for autumn because I was sick with covid19 for most of September (husband brought it home from work). But I will be doing something for Spooky Season now that most of the commissions are finished. Yay!

Welcome to this site. Maybe you'd like to fill your profile with some more information...likes/dislikes and so on. It's always easier for your future swap partners to find something to send you then :)

Hi! This is for the Happy Music Video Profile Comment swap! So I recently discovered the wonders of the Eurovision Song Contest and wish it aired on American TV, but that's why it's Eurovision, haha. Anyway, This is one of my favorite performances from ESC! It's Pasha Parfeny from Moldova singing Lăutar.

I love the song because it's catchy and upbeat, the choreography is interesting, and the dancers' outfits are unique! Hope you enjoy it!

Dear wallflowergrownwild,

Hi! Being your partner in the Happy Music Video Profile Comment swap, I am glad to share this song that I like as well as the movie clip that was made for it. It is from Kina Grannis, a half Japanese and half American pop singer.

I hope you will like it. Have a lovely day!

In Your Arms

Hey Quinn, it is me! :3

I hope you enjoyed the package I sent. It's unfortunate you did not acknowledge what I sent- be it good or bad. You are rude by not responding to PM's and rating.

2planetearth on Aug 10, 2010:

Hi Quinn, I am your partner for Decorate and Fill a Pringles Can * USA I sent the package out 07/26/10 and sent you a few P.M's Seems like your very busy now but I wanted to know if you received the package sent? Thanks
