About Me

The SwapBot page seems to be having a problem loading properly all day today. Links to things like respond etc are dead. If you are looking for a rating...hang in there I will post (or repost) as soon as SwapBot returns to normal. All sends are up to date - even if it doesn't look like it today! - Cobweb (May 7)

Crafty Vintage collector from Texas. I prefer the unusual and unique. As an 80's girl I have a tendency to rescue the toys and pop culture references of my youth. A lifelong obsession is my collection of Moon Landing memorabilia - fueled by the fact that I was born as Armstrong took his first steps. I love vintage horror, bad B movies, Adams Family, Munsters, and oddities. I still frequent comic book shops as well as the ancient literature section of our local library. We even throw together the odd D&D game with the old crew from time to time. I love little things and getting mail is always fun. I will not be disappointed in anything you send. Feel free to share your favorite things with me.

Favorite Books

True Crime, Vintage Horror, Lovecraft, biographies, '50's Sci Fi and historical nonfiction. I just realized I left out craft books....I rescue forlorn vintage craft books. The hardcover kind from the 70's that give you all the info you need to be hippie fabulous and old craft magazines like vintage leatherworking magazines etc. Lots of lost processes out there.

Movies/TV/Music

I just love movies. My degree is in radio/tv/film so I come to movies with a different eye than most.

Dark Sci-Fi, dystopian fantasy and animated cartoons. Serious bibliophile and BBCA watcher. I have a love for bad b-movies - the worse the better.

I lean toward the 'oldies' station - which is heavy on 70's metal and 80's grunge in our area. But my own itunes account is an eclectic mix of Willie Nelson (the old stuff I grew up on), The Cure and Type O....Viking Death Metal...SKA...I am really all over the map. At work we keep it customer friendly, so that is where I get my pop fix. When the husband and I go out to dance we end up at 80's night at the goth club or the Roller Rink. Sure beats the gym for exercise.

Favorite Crafts

My dining room is actually my craft room....

leatherwork metal work costuming knitting Viking knitting felting creature creation upcycling pottery assemblage and anything else that strikes my fancy at the moment...

Going Postal

I live in the boonies in rural Texas. Mail is a rural route and we only receive mail from the sorting facility every other day. If you don't get something - drop me a message and let me know. I don't want the snail pace of our mail to effect the fun!

Update: Had a chance to chat with our new postmaster about delivery etc. Mail is not sorted at our local facility, only bagged for the truck from Austin to pick up. Pickup is daily, but the bags then go to the postal sorting station in Austin - just under 50 miles away. Rural mail is sorted on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday then delivered to our post office on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The day I put it in the mailbox is NOT the day that will be reflected on the postmark! So many rural delivery routes are going to this method that I thought it important to pass this information on.

Collections

Everyone has those little things they rescue/save/love, these are mine: - Viewmaster reels - Red dice (only the red ones, I have a jar I keep them in that sits in my bathroom window) - Playing cards...but only the queen of hearts. If you have a broken deck I would be happy to adopt it. I keep the queen and upcycle the other cards into display tags for jewelry. - lego figures and or tiny lego things the figures can hold - Pens/pencils with figures on top - cool stickers - I use them in my planner and for letter writing - Vintage Halloween - I was married Oct. 31 so that should give you an idea. Love the 70s stuff. - Anything relating to Apollo 11 or the first Moon Landing. There were so many things and they are only just now showing up at garage sales so I am always on the look out

Comment: Thanks for these interesting ATC's. I like your unique illustrations of the astrology subject, thinking of the more famous of the astrology practitioners to illustrate rather than the more well known symbols of astrology.

Comment: I’m sorry. I have to rate for lateness alone. I like what you sent. But you sent 4 days past deadline (and past when you clicked sent). ETA: I just read your profile, if you know your mail runs late, then don’t wait until the last day to send. This will prevent problems in the future. I mailed mine out the day partners were assigned.
Response: I do not think it is irresponsible to expect the mail to run on time. I was actually traveling when these packages were mailed. This mail was dropped into a blue mail box in Austin, Texas with a daily pick up time listed. For it to be postmarked four days later is really not under my control. Bully for you for mailing out when partners are assigned, but I have a full time job and at times it takes me to other cities. I gathered up materials while on the road and insured I sent out by the deadline. I have no control over the actions of the USPS.
