About Me

Hello, I'm Becky! I'm 30, and have had lots of different jobs but I like to call myself an artist. I love doing jobs that I find interesting and spending time creating things. I live in western Oregon with my husband and a bunch of pets. We have two cats, one dog, several rabbits and chickens, and too many plants. We also foster rescue animals sometimes. Just over two years ago, we moved to an old farmhouse and started fixing it up. I really love growing herbs, flowers and food, and saving seeds. I used to garden at a community garden before moving here and planting my own garden. Next is a food forest!

I love that I live somewhere I can enjoy these things and also close enough to the city that we can visit often and see friends and experience so much awesome stuff. I especially love going to concerts! My love for DIY, animals, and many hobbies means that if I'm ever bored, it's entirely my own fault :)

One of my major goals for this year is to build a new PC and launch a website as well as an etsy store for my art. I love painting as well as digital illustration.

I'm a non-theist... my spirituality centers around nature and humanism. If you want an easy label you can call me an eclectic witch. I spend a lot of time in the garden, in nature and doing art. I have a refillable 5"x7" six ring notebook using A6 pages, if you'd like to send me recipes, decorated pages, blessings, incantations, or anything else to include that would be wonderful. I can share pages as well and send some of my blank ones - I really love to share grimoire pages!

I found out about this site recently from a pen-pal of mine and I would love to exchange swaps and happy mail with others. A simple letter or note is always a joy to receive - a little doodle or surprise makes it extra special! Something handwritten is wonderful, but if you struggle with handwriting, typed is lovely as well.

I'm still quite new to swap-bot, but I've been exchanging letters with pen-pals since I was a kid and recently started doing happy mail swaps. If you run a group or swap you think I might be interested in, or are interested in a 1-on-1 swap, do let me know! I love to hand-make things and use found items. I think hand-made things are beautiful and strive to make each piece of mail unique.

Favorite Movies

My Hogwarts House would be Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw.

Favorite Television

I love the earlier seasons of The Great British Bake Off, Firefly, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Dragon Prince, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, Over the Garden Wall, The Good Place, The Haunting of Hill House, Bob's Burgers, Stranger Things, Voltron Legendary Defender, RWBY, Ouran High School Host Club, Aggretsuko... I have only recently discovered Moomin and I find it really wholesome and warm. I love Moomin and Snufkin in particular.

Favorite Music

I have a pretty eclectic taste in music, and there aren't many genres I don't like! Really the only ones I can think of are country & rap, I don't enjoy a lot of the mainstream of these genres. I also don't particularly dislike K-pop or J-pop but I'm clueless about them.

Some of my favorite genres are rock, grunge, lofi, electro-swing, soundtrack/fantasy and contemporary classical... I tend to prefer certain songs or artists over whole genres. I don't enjoy mainstream country but I do like modern folk music from artists like The Avett Brothers.

Some of my favorite bands/artists are: Dead Sara, Muse, Rise Against, Foo Fighters,Pearl Jam, Freeze Pop, Calva Louise, Parov Stelar, Ratatat, The Grateful Dead, Dolly Parton... I'm all over the place honestly.

What to Send?

I enjoy seeing the style and personality of the sender, so feel free to include anything not listed that you think is cool, too. And of course, sending just what the swap specifies is always just fine! That said, If you're the kind of person who likes to add a little extra or you're looking for ideas for a profile-based swap, here are just a few things that always make my day:

A thoughtful letter, short or long
A bag of your favorite tea, cocoa or coffee mix
Happy mail (pinterest and instagram have a ton of inspiration for this)
Washi tape samples
Die cuts
Some seeds, pressed flowers, leaves, feathers... things found from nature
A doodle or some art made by you
Cute paper clips
I love things made with brown craft paper
Incense sticks (I send them wrapped in plastic or wax paper so that the oil doesn't stain the mail)
Stickers (please no kids stickers or brand advertising)
Tarot cards or illustrations
Art Journal or Grimoire pages (A6)
Your favorite mailing stamps
Halloween/Samhain stuff in autumn, Yule stuff in December, Birthday things in late March/early April, anything for the current season or upcoming sabbat
Anything nature, cat, botanical, floral, space, art deco, art nouveau or victorian gothic themed
Photos of your pets, your favorite thing, or something that represents you/where you live
Really, anything unique to you and/or where you live!

No Thanks

I'd prefer you don't send any of the following items:

I'm allergic to mangoes & cashews
My skin is pretty sensitive, so I'd prefer you not send cosmetics, lotions, soaps, etc.
Please don't send advertisements, political, or religious items (witchcraft or nature related is welcome though!)
Please don't send me Christian items, Americana or general patriotism-themed items. I wouldn't mind receiving something like a Danish themed postcard from Denmark for for Danish independence day or a picture of a historic cathedral, for example, but miss me with bible verses, 'faith and family' items, and red-white-n-blue things, as well as propaganda items from any country or religion.
I prefer just about any scent/flavor over pumpkin spice. I also don't care for vanilla as a scent, but the flavor is lovely!
I'm not a big Disney person
I don't really care for fairies, mermaids, unicorns, tiger/leopard print, makeup/shoes/glam-queen as a theme, or hello kitty.
Minions (those yellow pill-shaped guys with goggles) weird me out.

Swaps and Ratings

I only mark things as sent once I have actually dropped them off at the post office, though sometimes they may be postmarked at a later date. It seems like mail is taking longer to process lately.

I always do my best to send things off in a timely manner. I will contact you if I can't! If something doesn't arrive, or I missed something that was supposed to be included in the swap, please let me know - preferably before you rate - and I'll correct that right away! If you can't send on time, please reach out to me. I'm not super strict about postmarked dates (sometimes things I send aren't postmarked until they reach a central sorting facility a few days later) but if a swap was sent out late, I appreciate a heads up.

I'll rate things the day I receive them unless something crazy comes up. If I haven't rated something and it should have reasonably arrived by now, please reach out and let me know!
