About Me

Hello!

Call me Dezi, I'm an open minded eclectic person who loves to create, share, and learn.

I’ve dabbled in almost every art medium and I love traditional mail!

I was born and raised with California sunshine, Disneyland, books, and a passion for history.

~~~

I love to travel and when I can’t I enjoy sending mail to places near and far. I’ve been to much of North America, Europe, and South America as well as 46/50 States in the US. I really hope to hit those last four states and then maybe Asia.

~~~

Disclaimer! I’m a huge Disney fan and love sharing crafty ideas with other Disney fans. My favorite pastime is visiting Disney parks with my husband and making memories. I know Disney can be considered 'childish' by some and that's okay, I enjoy the hopeful childish dreamy aspects of the company as much as the hard reality of what it cost to create an empire that created such a deep cultural impact on the world. I have studied, read about, and written essays on everything from the engineering aspects of certain park rides to comparing original literature to it's 'Disneyfied' counterpart so feel free to hit me with more than the average princess sticker!

Additional Disclaimer! Just because I love Disney don't worry, if it's clearly not your cup of tea I do have many other interests and I'm happy to share those with everyone as well.

~~~

Disclaimer on Religion

I’m not a religious person but respect whatever gives people what they need to get through the blows life deals. That said I have no problem receiving or sending religious messages if that’s what inspires people’s creativity. I've studied various versions of The Bible extensively both old and new testament for school and respect it and all texts holy or otherwise. I do have very religious family members and happily pass such sentiments to them when they are in need.

~~~

Genres I enjoy: Disney Soundtracks, Country, PMJ, Classic Rock, 20's-50's, Musicals, and more.

Music usually has to speak to me, often I'll enjoy a song because it's lyrics hit something or because I associate that song with a certain memory or moment in time.

~~~

  1. Betrayal at House on the Hill Legacy
  2. Villainous
  3. Forbidden Skies
  4. Nuns on the Run
  5. Cards Against Humanity

On Ratings...

When it comes to ratings (and life) I believe the key to everything is proper COMMUNICATION!

PLEASE communicate with me if something has/hasn't arrived, if there's an emergency/natural disaster, if you're hoping for something specific from a swap. Tell me, if you don't tell me I won't know and can't help/accommodate/respond.

I rate the same day I receive, if you haven't gotten a rating from me it's because I haven't received anything from you.

I understand the postal service can be crazy, so I usually give a one month benefit of the doubt grace period. That doesn't mean you can send a month late without ever contacting me and expect a 5, it means if you sent out on the right date and your parcel is delayed up to a month that's how long I'm willing to be patient for before rating a 1.

International is always given a bit more benefit of the doubt since I know with customs and such things can be held up for longer periods of time.

Likewise, if you haven't received something from me PLEASE tell me! I keep tracking numbers for everything I can and if something was lost in the mail I want the chance to re-send it to you! 90% of the time I take my swaps right to the post office to ensure they arrive as smoothly as possible with no postage due snags and such.

Comment: Oh my gosh, the ATC is so tailored to me. A Scottie dog in green plaid. Love that you drew the plaid yourself. And the Scottie note card is so sweet. I once met a Scottie in a scrapbook store that was so sweet, like the dog on the card. I know they can be feisty and aloof but she was a darling. Loved what you sent me Ddezi. 🤗
Response: I am so incredibly delighted that you loved it! You're incredibly welcome! <3

Comment: I LOVE these ATCs so much! You did an amazing job. The external use only embellishment made me lol on the poison skeleton one. Absolutely LOVE the card and extras as well. I've never seen a pinup like that. Thank you for noticing the alliteration of my name! Nobody ever notices that! It's one of the reasons I loved changing my name to my hub's. My maiden name was Parkinson, which doesn't trip off the tongue as well. ;) THANKS for a great swap. These will hang on my office wall and I'm thrilled :):)
Response: I'm delighted you enjoyed everything. I laughed to myself, but you're never sure how things will end up being interpreted so it's great to share a bit of humor!

Thank you for returning the finished "Windmill Song" ATC jam. I like how it turned out, too. The postage stamp you used on the envelope is going straight into my collection, so thanks for that cuteness, as well!
