If you'd like to get to know me a bit...

I’ve moved around a lot & have lived in Austin, Boston, New York City, Los Angeles & Istanbul, but now I call Houston home. I've worked in book publishing, as an ESL teacher & now do marketing for a university. I’m married, no kids but am a dog mom. I’ve worked in dog rescue & am kind of obsessed with dogs and animals in general! I'm a vegetarian and love all animals, including farm animals.

I LOVE Fall, Halloween and Christmas!

I’m definitely a child at heart and enjoy silly and funny stuff and small details. Swapping has been SO MUCH FUN to see all the beauty in details in the packages I get. And planning and sending swaps has been such a great creative outlet too!

I love to explore nature and take my dog to a beautiful nearby park & observe the birds, wildlife & constantly blooming, changing plants.

I've evolved over the time I've been doing swapbot. Less Dollar Tree since I started receiving the same items and cards back as I was sending out. Now I try to buy on Etsy and am always surprised by some of the value, especially with card sets. I've also been doing more doodles and mail art.

Likes & Dislikes

LIKES

  • LOVE washi

  • Pop culture stuff, memes!!!, humor

  • Dogs, terriers

  • Black cats

  • Flowers, plants, cactus, trees

  • Birds, owls, raccoons, opossums, woodland creatures like deer & foxes

  • Camping, campfires, forest, pine cones, cabins

  • Blue sky and clouds. Stars & night sky, outerspace.

  • Magnolias!! are my favorite flowers/trees

  • Hot pink, polka dots, stripes, black and white, gold, RAINBOWS! 🌈 + GLITTER & SPARKLE!

POSTCARDS I've started swapping postcards this past year. I love nature pcs, illustrations, black and white, and interesting photography. But really anything is fine. I very open to a surprise.

ARTS & CRAFTS

  • Mixed media, collage, illustrations, acrylic painting, lino cuts, photography, line drawings, doodles

DISLIKES

  • Meat, seafood, leather. So that extends to pictures of meat, fishing, hunting, too.

  • Along the same lines, I prefer not to get pictures of animals as carriage horses, in rodeos, zoos, circuses, dog sledding, etc.

  • Don’t love tea, pine-scented holiday candles or cinnamon-scented things

While I don’t dislike religion, I’m not religious so those items aren’t for me.

I LOVE having the opportunity to be creative and giving & doing swaps! I get just as much enjoyment if not more out of planning, preparing and sending swaps, although a mailbox full of happy mail is a pretty joyful thing! :)

Comment: Many thanks for the fantastic mailing. I love all of the stamps you sent - probably my favorite is the 1963 Christmas stamp, which I believe is the first US Christmas stamp. I like all of the stickers,especially the snow globes. And your envelope is a keeper! The Christmas stamps look terrific along with your mail art.

@takehimaway Hand lettering books got my attention! I'm trying to catch up on swaps after an insane month. Once I catch up, I'd like to do that. Thanks!

If you wanna do another private swap, I do have some hand lettering books.
