About Me

"Whatever you are, try to be a good one." - William Makepeace Thackeray

I was born and raised in the beautiful and mountainous western Maine. I am humbled by the majestic natural beauty of the land that is my home.

After having coached gymnastics for ten years and owning my own gym for the last 5.5 of those years, I decided in December 2020 to change my career. I've taken a couple of short-term jobs in the meantime while I try to decide what I want to settle in the meantime. I spent a year working as a USPS clerk and would be happy to answer ANY USPS related questions you may have, or even if you want to nerd out. I LOVED that job, but the system is so dehumanizing.

I rate honestly and fairly in accordance to Swap-bot policies. The rating system is meant to help keep people honest and fair with their swaps. Admittedly, I have high standards and am highly selective in awarding hearts. Ya gotta really wow me for that heart. I think, if used properly, the hearts can really help differentiate the quality of one's swaps. Please do not take it personally if I do not reward your swap with a heart.

Please don't throw any extra stuff into swaps to me unless you talk to me first. I'm really not looking to add to my stash. I realize most of us strive for those hearts, and hearts come from me for nice high quality artwork, not from some memo sheets tossed in.

I am approachable but will not tolerate any abusive language directed at me. I expect all interactions on Swap-bot to be handled in a professional manner. If someone cannot/will not speak to me with respect, no matter the issue, they will be immediately blocked and I will no longer be willing to discuss the matter with them. I am highly intelligent and hold a master's degree in education so please don't talk to me like I'm stupid or make up elaborate stories.

Favorite Music

a non-exhaustive list of bands/musicians whose music I love: Air, Beth Orton, G. Love and Special Sauce, Zero7, Groove Armada, Wax Tailor, Tori Amos, Boards of Canada, Fun-Lovin Criminals, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bob Dylan, Shawn Lee, Johnny Cash, Rancid, Jurassic 5, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Bill Withers, the Flaming Lips, Social Distortion, Cake, Lemon Jelly, William Orbit, Four Tet, the Postal Service, Beck, Massive Attack, Thievery Corporation, Wu-Tang, the Budos Band...

Favorite Books

I haven't been a huge reader in recent years but with more free time than I've had, I've been slowly picking up books and reading them. I enjoy mainly non-fiction (true crime, social issues, biographies, autobiographies, memoirs) but I also enjoy dystopian tales (like 1984, Fahrenheit 451, Animal Farm, The Giver, etc).

Favorite Crafts

I am entirely in love with decos and slams. I have been swapping them both for two decades. I feel a pull from my soul to work on decos/collage on a regular basis. Just how I envy a lot of my dancer friends who move and dance daily, that pull they have for dance is what I feel for deco. I wish I had that same pull to dance like they do. Pre-COVID, I was an up-and-coming burlesque performer and had been a performance dancer since 2018.

What I Swap

Decos, Slams, Lyrix (if they still exist...)

I love to receive stickers but am not a fan of swapping them.

I take great pride in my artwork. Everything I make will be of good quality and I prefer the same in return. When you rate me for a swap that was handmade by me, I would love to hear what you think of my work and appreciate it if you took the time and care to do so.

Comment: Hey Melody! Thank you for the card! You're right about the legalization! I've never smoked anything to be honest, but I know this is an important step. There are multiple drvgs that are being studied for their therapeutic effects in people with various mental illnesses etc, and I'm hoping this will help more people. I've been considering trying it under supervision of doctors cause I'm sensitive to medicine already, and so it had seemed too risky for me personally before. This possibility might be a bit closer now. However, two days ago we had the election for the EU parliament, and the numbers of the far right are through the roof. So the past days have been a bit emotional πŸ’€ But I don't wanna bug you with that too much. Australia is doing a lot in terms of medicinal psychedelics, in case that is interesting to you. If I remember the name if the podcast I listened to that discussed this, I'll let you know! Thanks again!

Comment: I take it you did the 3rd section? The elegant one with gold? You forgot to fill out your section on the back, but the swap name is on the envelope, Thanks for the extra card.
Response: Oops! Yes, that was me. I guess I waited so long for it to dry that I forgot the back section. Thanks for the heart. <3

Comment: Thank you for sharing your answers in such a special way . You put so much effort into the swap. I enjoyed reading your answers to the swap questions. We have the same answer to number 19. I also hate the question β€œ how are you” for the same reasons as you do. On the pic from number 16 is it a goose?

Your Two (2) Postcards in an Envelope Tag! arrived today. Thank you for the great postcards and the Longfellow notecard. His "Song of Hiawatha" was adopted by Minneapolis founders for street names and such and now the city is rife with Hiawatha this and Minnehaha that. As if they didn't have enough of their own Indian names here. They are slowly being recovered.

I’m so jealous you live in Maine!!! I visited once on a two-week camping trip and I hiked the beehive trail. It was gorgeous at the top, but no treat getting up there LOL! I love your list of bands you listen to!! Definitely a wide variety! :) I hope you have a wonderful 2024 and I hope your swaps bring you happiness this year!!!

Hi! Thanks so much for joining my Profile comment swap, I appreciate it! I enjoyed reading your profile and see we share a band that we both love and that would be ... "Creedence Clearwater Revival", I've loved that since I was a kid and still love their music. My absolute favorite of theirs is the Lodi. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend! 🌹🌹🌹

Thank you for the sunflowers for my birthday (April CPG wishlist) which I forgot to acknowledge when I received it.
