About Me

Hey there, I'm Jessie! I enjoy movies, music, painting, and random crafting projects, and I look forward to the new art I find through this to admire and inspire me.

I'm somewhere in my mid 30's. I have 2 of the sweetest chihuahuas you'd ever meet, Loki and Dexter. My cat, Judas is my familiar, though. He follows me around everywhere and we just get each other. I'm an INFP, Aquarius, and Team Valor for those of you that play Pokemon GO! (My trainer code is 5137 4991 4113 - feel free to add me). I'm LGBTQIA+. I practice sustainable living and hope to one day live off grid.

My craft stuff will probably always be the biggest space consumer in my place, so I joined this to help put it to good use! I'm a bit quiet, but I love making new friends & discussing movies, music, shows, and stories, mostly. I'm part hippy, part metal head, part witch, part nerd, & part mermaid.

I cannot stress how much I love anything nautical! Vintage gothic and psychedelic/bohemian are a couple of my other favorites when it comes to home decor, and if I like the art I get through swaps enough, I try to find a place to display it, especially in those 3 categories. Mushrooms are included in the psychedelic category, but I love all mushroom stuff, including more vintage/biology book styles of art, which is what my kitchen is decorated in. I like to antique shop.

Neurodivergent Here

After a couple really unnecessary experiences I've had with swappers on here now, I feel I should let it be known that I'm on the spectrum. It definitely came across to me that these experiences were over differences in neurotype communication styles and preconceived notions of what I'm like on the other side of this screen. I don't subscribe to hierarchy, I don't think I'm better than anyone else, or that anyone is better than anyone. I'm an open book. I'm a terrible liar and hate the feeling of being dishonest, so I simply don't. If you ask me a question, I'm going to give you an honest answer. What I say is exactly what I mean, there's no hidden implications. I don't claim to be perfect at communication, but there is simply not any ill will toward anyone on this site. That would take negative energy that I have no interest in harboring for complete strangers. If you feel some kind of way about me because of that, I'm just going to let you navigate your own feelings. I don't need to be everyone's cup of tea.


FYI I use a sponge pen for sealing envelopes, so water is used, not saliva.

I pledge to rate
I give hearts based on effort. Be that how much you put into your art, or, especially for postcards, whether or not you took the time to look at my profile and pick something special to my taste, or for non-profile based, at least wrote or sent me something interesting, these all fit in that category. I believe creativity isn't as much a talent as it is a skill that has to be exercised. I miss the way I drew and painted as a teen, but after not finding the time for it up until the past few years on and off, I'm still finding my footing artistically. So, that's not the only thing I pay attention to when I receive something. I'm fairly generous with hearts, but not so generous that they've entirely lost their meaning when I give them.

I mark sent when the mail is "out of my hands," as per Swapbot rules, which in most cases, means my mailbox. Therefore postmark may be a day or two after that, but I do try to get them out asap, before the deadline.

I also pledge: To always send my swaps on time, or IF some crisis comes up, to message you ahead of time about it being sent late. I am NOT a flaker, so please message me if you don't receive something and are worried! I've gotten to a point now where I send most stuff off well before the deadline. I have, however, lost much faith in the US Postal system - It makes me understanding of others' lost swaps, as long as they do me the same courtesy I would do them, by messaging before the deadline about sending a late swap, keeping in close contact, and re-sending when necessary.

Favorite Movies

  • I Heart Huckabees is my favorite movie. I love existential movies/conversations, especially when combined with humor. Life is absurd, and many times terrifying, and I don't think I'd survive it if I couldn't laugh about it.
  • Pretty much any pop culture movie, except I only keep up about halfway on super hero movies. Not a big fan of action. Unless it has Keanu Reeves in it, of course.
  • Horror movies, especially the old 80's/90's ones
  • I also LOVE claymation and creepy puppetry, like in The Labyrinth or anything Guillermo del Toro.

TV shows

Too many to count, but I will note I'm a big fan of animation geared toward adults, as in the humor or content is commonly appreciated by adults, even if it's kid-friendly too. Examples include Venture Brothers (and pretty much anything adultswim), Gravity Falls, Over the Garden Wall, Bee and Puppycat, Steven Universe, Midnight Gospel, Castlevania, Harley Quinn (HBO series), and of course Adventure Time and anime.

Adventure Time


  • Favorite colors: Any shade of red or teal, especially dark, saturated shades. I also particularly like bright/neon colors and holographic/iridescent. Lately I've been really taking to orange.

  • ADVENTURE TIME - I love ALLL the characters, but my absolute favorites are Marceline and Bubblegum, who I have tattooed on me, along with Catbug and Puppycat. If you know where either of those come from I will adore you haha

  • Alan Watts & Terence McKenna (quotes would be lovely)
  • Alphonse Mucha/ ART NOUVEAU
  • ANIMAL BONES - the real thing or anything depicting them
  • Animals in clothing, especially formal wear
  • Anime
  • Avocados
  • Homemade bookmarks
  • Boston Terriers / Frenchies
  • Brads
  • CATS
  • Circular punchies, but only if you can do unique 1" ones (for bottle cap magnets)
  • CIRCUS & flow art. I do NOT condone animals in the circus, though.
  • Colorful messages
  • Coffee or tea stained paper!
  • COTTAGECORE/ haunted cottagecore
  • Deadly or otherwise odd or rare plants
  • Dinosaurs & dinosaur birds (ostriches, emus, magpies, geese, flamingos)
  • Embossed images, cards, etc.
  • Embellishments
  • Envelopes. Bought & made are both great, as long as they're not plain!
  • Ferrets/ weasels
  • Any FOLKLORE, mythical, or cryptid creature
  • Garfield
  • Ghosts
  • Hearts, especially anatomical
  • Hemp or leather cord
  • HORROR and creepy things
  • Hot wax stamps
  • INAPPROPRIATE HUMOR, as long as it's not racist, homophobic, etc.
  • Kawaii
  • Krampus
  • Lace
  • Llamas
  • Lilies - tiger lilies are my favorite flower
  • Mandalas/ bohemian patterns / PSYCHEDELIC
  • MOTHS, especially lunar
  • Music
  • NAUTICAL! Especially mermaids, piratey things, narwhals, & creatures with tentacles
  • Organic beads/ charms (glass, stone, wood, etc)
  • Painting - acrylic & watercolor
  • PHANTASMAGORIA, like Alice in Wonderland & Willy Wonka (older versions are preferred)
  • Pinups
  • Postcards
  • Rainbow Brite!
  • Recycled book pages or fabric
  • Risque
  • SEEDS (beginner gardener here)
  • Shabby chic
  • Spiders
  • Squishies are my favorite sensory thing! I know it's probably not relevant here, but on the same train of thought, I like soft puffy stickers for sensory reasons too
  • Stamps
  • Stencils
  • Steampunk/ dystopian
  • Succulents, but not spiky cacti
  • Sushi
  • Tardigrades
  • Tattoo style art, stickers, whatever
  • Teapots/ Tea - art or the real thing. My favorites are thai tea, black tea and fruity/ginger, but I'll try anything
  • Textures
  • VINTAGE/ retro, especially antique portraits (1920's or before), or "ghost" photos, as I've sometimes seen them labeled
  • Washi tape
  • Witchcraft
  • Woodland creatures (Foxes, birds/ owls, deer, worms, & forest folklore creatures especially)
  • Zazzle
  • Zodiacs


  • ATC Note:

    I'm on the hunt for some quality coffee ATC's at the moment for a home decor project I have in mind.

  • Ornaments

    Since I join homemade ornament swaps some years, my tree is now Krampus themed, so even if Krampus is too challenging, I would love ornaments in the red/black/vintage scheme of colors to add to it! Other creepy or occult ornaments also go on my tree.


In General

  • Not a big fan of YELLOW but it's not going to bug me unless there's an obnoxious amount on whatever I receive.
  • CHRISTIANITY, unless it's satirical, depicting an ophanim (spinning wheel eyeball covered monstrosity), or devil/demon related.
  • KID STUFF, reward or planner stickers, etc.
  • TRYPOPHOBIA triggers. Fractals are an exception; even though they still trigger it a little, I love them a lot.
  • DISNEY, Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry
  • SOUTHWEST style
  • COUNTRY LIVING, "live, laugh, love", etc.
  • SCENTED stuff - I'm picky
  • COLORING papers or postcards. I have so many now and not enough patience for them!


I really don't like anything generic, especially touristy! Even if it's vintage. Please save those for someone who will appreciate it.

PLEASE no Disney, Looney Tunes, or otherwise kiddy cards. I've never been a fan, and don't have any kids to share it with. It can be assumed I only like the cartoons listed in "TV shows", unless you've watched enough of those examples to get my vibe.

Not a fan of scenery / landscape postcards. I'd much prefer the weirdest PC you've got! Also any of my above likes are just as welcome on a postcard, especially antique portraits :D


I currently have tons of Alice in Wonderland, Adventure Time, D&D, and over-sized Star Wars PCs. Feel free to message me a request if I am sending to you for a swap, or if you want to do a private swap for one (or a handful). I love receiving hearts, and will always do my best to please!

Favorite Music

My top genres are indie/folk, electronica/EDM, plunderphonics, rap, and metal (except 80's hair metal). I also take to a fair amount of 80's songs and oldies. I like just about anything except radio pop and pop country. The stuff I listen to most is rarely on the radio, if ever. I use Spotify a lot.
Some of my current favorite bands: Aesop Rock, Buku, Caravan Palace, Clams Casino, Dan Deacon, Days N Daze, Eyedea, Flying Lotus, Glass Animals, Harley Poe, King Lazy Eye, Lorn, Poor Mans Poison, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Ratatat, Rone, Samsa, Snails, Tally Hall, Tipper, & Um...


I've been getting into Deco Books lately, so just putting a little note on here that homers are always welcome! I love sending home a finished product, especially when it takes so long to get passed around. Just please make sure it's one I haven't created or already done a page in. When sending one of my own decos back to me (completed), please make sure to put your swap-bot name or at least enough info for me to contact you in the envie too, so I can say or give you a thank you of some kind! Thanks :)

Comment: Loved the pc! Thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the Lou Paper veggie card, I love it. It's so neat you're related to Mary of Scots, that you have psychic dream abilities, and I'm super jealous that you're going to a vampire Halloween party. It sounds like a lot of fun, maybe you can dress as one of the other characters from wwdits?
Response: Ooh that's a fun idea! I bet with the blouse I have picked out, I could pull off The Guide :)
Comment: Thank you for the list. The songs do not have to be something I would like, though I do appreciate that. It's just your most listened to list. I'm going to be looking them up when I have a bit more time.
Response: Thanks for the heart! I listen to hundreds of songs a month, so most listened to lately has been whatever I research for these swaps, because I like varying my music so much and these swaps help me pick up songs I forgot about. I'll keep that in mind if I get you again, though.

Comment: I’ve been having a lively discussion (😂debate sort of argument) with Hubby about the popcorn scandal. Frankly it sounds at worst tasty or quite possibly glorious and life changing 🤣😋 it’s a salted caramel thing. 😉IYKYK🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 also I love the card you sent!
Response: Haha I'm glad someone finally agrees with me after describing it! The mom & pop cafe I worked at was the only place I've found that sold it, and I've been yearning for it ever since, for almost 20 years now. Glad you enjoyed!
Comment: Lovely stickers! Happy Swapping!
Comment: I received the deco you sent. Thanks for the note as I may have been looking for the blank pages. Nice to see that you are in Mesa - do you ever get together with others to craft? I love going to weekend crops. Will you be going to the Scrapbook Expo in September?
Response: Thanks for the rating! Sometimes I'll craft with a friend or few, but I don't get to public gatherings much, usually overload myself with projects lol. That sounds neat, though, I didn't know Scrapbook Expos existed! I'll have to look into it. :)

Hello Jessie. I received the WTA postcards today. They are great! Perfect, really. It would be so exciting to see Niagara Falls on board the Maid of the Mist. What an experience that would be! Also love the Other two postcards as well. Hugs!
