About Me


I'm 24 and pretty much a bunch of contradictions stitched together into what is known as the human condition. I think art is amazing and I enjoy creating things. I majored in art history and enjoy working in a museum gift shop (though I'm at my happiest helping with exhibits and doing collections work). I have a 3ish year old ferret named Squirrel. She's a crazy little social poop machine that is adorable and likes to snuggle.

I'm trying to learn Mandarin. If you know any, feel free to send me a simple note-I need all the practice/help I can get. xD Actually, I'm pretty in love with languages. If you want so send me something simple in any language, I'd have fun deciphering it and learning how to answer you. ^_^

I collect plant and animal stamps. If you use one to send your swap, that would be wonderful!

Favorite Books

  • Sunshine by Robin McKinley
  • Dies The Fire by S.M. Sterling
  • The Hob's Bargain by Patricia Briggs
  • Catspaw by Joan D. Vinge
  • Griffen & Sabine (Series) by Nick Bantock
  • Mars (Series) by Fuyumi Soryo
  • Daughter of the Empire (Series) by Raymond E. Fiest and Janny Wurts
  • Niel Gaiman, Jane Yolen, Anne McCafferey

When I have time to read, I tend to like books I can escape into. I especially love urban fantasy-type books that are just a step away from our reality.

Recommendations are welcome!

  • Sewing, particularly costumes ( Victorian, Steampunk)
  • Mail art
  • Cooking deliciousness

I'm currently learning yoga!

Rock climbing, biking, hiking, walking, ice skating, sleeping

Massage, touch, body art (tattoos, human canvas), art of the body

Reading, listening to music, mail, traveling, exploring .


Some years ago, I had an account on here and got overwhelmed by college and life. This, unfortunately, led to my dropping everything and retreating. Recently, I rediscovered Swap-bot and mailmania. The admins reminded me of my past account and I am now working to reconnect and try to make it up to those I abandoned. However, this discrepancy was from 2010 and many of the swappers are no longer around.
In case anyone cares, as I'd like to mend fences and not step on any toes, I believe my previous account name was something like blakkhawkk or hawkk. If I have failed to reconnect with you, please message me.


Comment: I absolutely loved your telling me of your holiday. I am going to look up the game Dixit.. My dad didn't play too many board games either. He was a sports guy and if we went outside he'd be all about anything with a ball . Thanks for sharing. Happy holidays!!

Comment: Hello Hawkk, Nice to hear about your good things in your day. Hope all is well :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the card. Fall here has already started happening...at least the Fall colors have started. Nights are cold but days are warm still...70s. I didn't really have plans for Halloween, just hoping for trick or treaters. I have lived where there are none and moved to this new place after Thanksgiving last year so my first Halloween here. Got about 30 kids lol. What did you end up doing?

Thank you for the extra goodies you sent after the "use 'em up, get 'em out" swap! That was a wonderful surprise and I thought your "old stationery" rescued from the scrap bin was very cool! :) Take care!
