Expert daydreamer, craft-average, working mama, just happy to be here.
My eyebrows never recovered from the late 1990s. If you can relate, perhaps we can form a club.
From 2019-2023 I took a break from swaps and had a couple kids. Now I’m back and excited to see how this ‘bot has changed.
Random loves: Mr. Zip, outer space/galaxies/stars/UFOs, lenticulars, road trips, museums, Gudetama, postal and airmail themes, photography, typewriters, puffy stickers, unique postcards, Hawaii, lomography, traveler’s notebooks, fountain pens, plants, naps.
I know most people hate neon colors but I love them (especially neon red). Feel free to send all the neons my way.
Good Mail Days are the best! I write thick letters and stuff them into colorful envelopes. Forever a Letter Writer's Alliance member.
I don't get bored. I was an only child and learned to entertain myself from a young age. I’m perfectly happy doing nothing. I read cookbooks like they are novels. I’m a vault of useless factoids. If I had it all to do again, I’d have been a writer or a gem hunter.
Please Note: I always always send my swaps, and early. If you have not received a swap from me please just message me. I’ve seen folks get pretty curt about not receiving a swap. And I’ve seen them not acknowledge that they ended up receiving two mailings from me, which is a bummer. I wish I had control over the post office. I’m always happy to resend the very next possible day.
Here’s where I reveal my age. My favorite music is from the 1990s and 1980s. I also love Motown, old school hip hop, and pop.
I like podcasts and listen to audiobooks around 2.0 speed on my commute.
I miss sweet comedies like You've Got Mail. Other favorites include Edward Scissorhands, The Other Guys, Alice in Wonderland (the animated original version from the 1940s), Parasite, Christmas Vacation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind…
I watch a ton of documentaries and stand-up comedy specials. I dunno how that fact would ever play into a swap, but hearts to you if you can make it happen!
I like TV noise in the background as I do other things. Good shows for this include: Shark Tank, Ancient Aliens, Ink Master, Dodgers baseball games, 90 Day Fiancé, reality singing contests, foodie shows. And I love Ted Lasso.
I’m not easily offended but have been disappointed to receive items that are dirty, stained, used up, obviously trash, covered in pet hair, or heavy with the smell of cigarettes.
Country Kitchen/Farmhouse themes, Rae Dunn, teacher/reward stickers, religion, and powdered drink mixes are not really my thing. I don't love politics.
I tend to skip swaps that have a bunch of spelling mistakes. Just a little pet peeve.
“Craft-average” as I said above means I try hard but am not blown away by anything I’ve made. I appreciate and admire those of you who are talented and send out legit art creations.
I buy supplies with the best intentions and I'm terrible about using my stash...I'm sure it's because I have zero craft supply organizational skills.
I have tried making ATCs and feel like they were failures. I love love making zines, and I hope they'll become trendy again.
No-rules creative journaling suits me. Big photos, ephemera, lots of washi, metallic pens..
