I'm an ICU RN in Minnesota. Dog Mom. Grandma. Wildly inappropriate (at appropriate times).
I always send, and I will communicate if I need to send late (it's only happened once).
I click "sent" when I put items in the mailbox at the post office.
(Don't stress, I enjoy pretty much everything that isn't on my 'dislikes' list). That said, I prefer thoughtfully created items rather than a lot of 'extras'.
Krampus, imps, dark elves, demons, and generally all spooky creatures. Gargoyles/grotesques, skulls/skeletons and anatomic images and illustrations. Vintage horror and Sci-Fi.
Grown-up Gothic aesthetic, Steampunk, and Victorian. Celtic, Nordic/Icelandic.
Feminist art, protest art, advertising art. Subversive art.
Handmade postcards, ATCs and ATCoins (not 'sticker slapped', any media).
Vintage nurses, especially WWII era
COOKIE MONSTER!!!! Oscar, Grover, Yip Yips, Kermit, Animal, Beaker, the Swedish Chef
Female Villains, including Disney.
Stained glass windows, especially geometric and non-religious.
Dark purple, jewel tones.
Quality over quantity.
Halloween (grown-up, not childish),
Swearing. You will not offend me with the "F-bomb". Same with risque or 'naughty' images (just not flat-out pornography please)
Dragonflies, seahorses, hedgehogs
Catahoulas, Corgis, Golden Retrievers (All my fur friends were rescues)
Public broadcasting (tv and radio)
International travel (I miss it so much!)
Fountain pens, dip pens, and pretty ink. (I gravitate towards dark purples) Wax seals. Making my own ink from plants.
Art and Art History, especially European Renaissance, Icelandic and Nordic, Roman and pre-Roman, Islamic, African and African-American, and all things Expressionist. Vintage and historical erotic images. Historical nurse/medical art/posters, Eco- and 'green' living, repurposing and upcycling
Whisky, whiskey, and Scotch. (Yet, I've never been drunk. Go figure.)
Modern/urban homesteading. Food preservation. Baking, cooking, candy-making. Kitchen alchemy.
Favorite crafts to do:
Collage, ATCards/coins, handmade postcards, and other mini works of art, useful items, Aromatherapy items, Jewelry, Sewing/quilting, Amigurumi (both knit and crochet), Challenges that make me 'think outside the box', Recycled items into crafts, Origami and other folded/manipulated paper crafts
Working on my watercolor skills (watercolor has always vexed me... I will eventually conquer it)
Most musicals. Most local theater. Some national productions (when I'm lucky enough to go)
Movies/TV: Killing Eve, Outlander, Dexter, Counterpart, Dark, Foreign movies, Good (and bad) Vampire movies, Great British Baking Show, Monty Python, satire, and dark humor. Sci-fi, dystopian, and post-apocalyptic. Stupid funny (i.e. Big Mouth, Bad Santa, etc)
Music: my tastes run the spectrum.
"Cute" or childish items, 'kawaii', and the like.
Overly 'girly' items (specifically requested for my daughter or granddaughter). Loose glitter and 'sparkles' (please be sure nothing 'sheds' glitter, seal that stuff up well!).
Racism, hate, Science denial.
Makeup/bath/body products (skin is too sensitive, fragrances often give me migraines)
Tea, coffee, and food. (I like the packaging, but I'm picky about what I eat/drink)
Bootlegged items (please respect copyright)
Anything that smells of smoke, (Illicit) drug or pot imagery
NO religious or political themes (unless the swap is specifically for them), tracts, and the like.
