About Me

I like to write letters. I recently got into fountain pens and am very excited about pens/inks/paper! I sometimes make mail-art/handmade postcards/ATCs. I dabble in collage, painting, drawing and crochet.

My favorite color is orange, but blue and magenta are also nice.

I prefer zany, weird, funny, swear-y, silly things. Have a card you think is too inappropriate to send to somebody? You can send it to me! I like swearing, sarcasm, bad puns and terrible jokes.

If you have one, I would LOVE a picture of your cat! Please tell me his/her name. I want to start a "Cats of Swap-bot" photo album/glue book! (photos can be printed on regular paper or photo paper--either is fine!) Thanks! thanks! **And guinea pigs! I would totally be into a Guinea Pigs of Swap-bot album as well! :-D

Extras from my "likes" list are MUCH appreciated!, (thank you!!!) but please don't bother with random "extras" or junky tuck-ins you're re-gifting. I will give you a heart without the extras.

--orange (the color, not the fruit), turquoise, yellow

--unused US postage stamps (esp 1970s &1980s)

-- donkeys, cats, guinea pigs and woodland creatures (fox, rabbit, squirrel, wolf, chipmunk, etc) Especially donkeys! And Guinea Pigs!!

--Toronto Blue Jays, Toronto Raptors Anything related to the Toronto Blue Jays or Toronto Raptors would be so AWESOME!! and I could not thank you enough! Anything Toronto in general would be greatly appreciated!!

--Arizona, esp. Sedona

--Don't Mess with Texas & anything related to Austin

--Canadian things (eg: beavers, maple leaves, Toronto, Roots, True North) (but no hockey...)

--anatomical stuff: brains/bones etc.

--weightlifters/body builders/fighters/muscular people

--Cirque du Soleil

--Surrealist/Modern Art

--anything related to vinyl records/lps

--music playlists/record recommendations

--Washi tape

--Japanese cutesy stationery/stickers (food with eyes, etc.)

--Deadpool, Hulk, Captain America, the Punisher.

--Bojack Horseman

--Stupid jokes: for example:
Q: What game do you play with a wombat?
A: Wom.

Extras from my "likes" list are MUCH appreciated!, (thank you!!!) but please don't bother with random "extras" that are not on my likes list. Extras are just that: extras: They are not necessary!

Please Do Not Send:

Please do not send me butterfly anything. (in real life they're fine, but I really really don't like them on paper, and I hesitated even mentioning it, but it became necessary when over the course of a month EVERY SWAP I RECEIVED had a freaking butterfly on it. I had to take a stand!)

I will not rate you down if you send me butterfly things, but I might light them on fire.

PLEASE NO BUTTERFLIES! But other insects are fine!

NO TINY SHEETS of paper, (2x3 size eg.)
please don't send these items.


I read people's profiles and try to send them things they'd like.

I rate 5s and hearts. I don't do drama over a missing postcard or something mailed a few days late. I try to rate the day I receive, but sometimes I forget. If you're missing a rating please let me know.

I click "sent" when I put the swap in my mailbox and put the flag up. Then my rag-tag bunch of millennial mail carriers have their way with it and it's out of my hands. (I used to have ONE mailman named Jim, but he retired. He was awesome. Now it's a different rando everyday and I don't know who to tip at Christmas. I really miss Jim!.)


Comment: I truly enjoyed reading this letter! You sound like you had a great year in pens. And I am curious/envious of the advent calendar ink sample idea.. and am totally looking up all of the inks you used now!

Comment: Thank you! Nice to meet another cat/Star Wars/coloring/and so on... lover + bookworm (like me). ;) I would love to write to you. Normally I would write more, but as I am going to send you a letter, I will keep all that for later ;). But I do have one question - Do you collect postcards? Have a great weekend, TT!
Response: Hi! I do not collect postcards, but i do send them out once in a while. I look forward to your letter! :-D Enjoy your weekend too!
Comment: I absolutely adore the cat stationery and now I want some, too! I'll write back soon. It's flinging between monsoon season outside and being so, so windy but warm... I have to change plans for outside/inside work based on it, even. Looks like I'll have a lot of "inside time" though! How do people keep plants alive in this?!
Comment: Thanks TT. The songs are fabulous and I love female artists. I tend to listen to country and hate that they donโ€™t have as many female singers as they once did. Take care
Comment: OMG, that coloring book page is AMAZING, I was dying of laughter when I opened your envelope! Thank you for the wonderful letter, I'll respond soon!
Comment: Thank you for your letter and goodies! I've been in Austin for 2 years, we have a Kinokuniya here too :) I really like New York! Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you for your letter and all the enclosures! I enjoyed everything!

Comment: Where do I even begin without writing an essay... first of all, I loved your letter. I immediately wanted to get out a piece of pen and paper to reply, but then I remembered it's swap-bot. It made me genuinely laugh out loud almost right away. And I love your handwriting! I loved your happy-rant about pickleball... and thank you SO much for the bojack horseman stickers! I do love bojack horseman, but I haven't been able to finish it yet! I spoiled myself to death, so I know how it ends, no worries there. Thank you for making my day. โœฐ
