My Instagram (Warning: spoilers and nsfw art)
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.
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.
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.
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
I'm on the hunt for some quality coffee ATC's at the moment for a home decor project I have in mind.
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.
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!
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 :)
