About Me

http://https//dorkydactyl.deviantart.com/

^Me!^

Hi! I'm an eager swapper that has an affinity for arts and crafts of all kinds! I love to make things, but sadly never find a reason to make anything, really, lest it just build up in my room and never get used. So hopefully swapping will be a good way for me to continue to create things and share them with other people!

I love photography, writing, singing, and for a while now, I've been working on a large Art Journal! I dabble in ATCs, and would like to do more- especially painted ones. In fact... I'd love a reason to get my paints out at all, haha.

I've been very health and fitness oriented the past year or two, but honestly I still have no clue what I'm doing. Especially with cooking (Anyone have any healthy/moderate/otherwise recipes?). I'd love to get into Meal prep, but I currently have no idea how to get started with organizing such a thing, lol. But I love to spend most of my day riding my bike or walking, when the weather is actually nice.

I would be completely down to do a One-On-One Trade with any of my interests mentioned within my profile. Especially ATC's or Journal Page swaps! I was also love to do a Bullet Journal Monthly Spread swap (Sort of a "Make My Spread!" kind of thing). I am also looking for a PenPal (18-25yrs) with similar interests!

I live in central Oregon, USA, and love to travel almost as much as I love to stay in! I'd be willing to do a postcard swap (blank or filled out), so just contact me if you're interested!

I will NEVER discriminate against anyone's religion, culture, race, gender, etc! I hope you also grant me that same respect.

PLEASE NOTE

Please include your swap bot name and the swap name in swaps you send to me! Swaps I'm in might be similar, sometimes, so I'd like to elimate confusion and make rating even quicker and more painless than it already is! Thank you!

Smoke-Free home, Cat-Free home (if you're allergic)- But I absolutely don't mind receiving personally from swappers who do live in homes that include these things.

I will ALWAYS rate your swap! And I hope you do the same for me! :)

If my swap does not reach you, please contact me. I'd be more than happy to resend!

I'm new to snail mail and swaps, so I apologize if it's obvious that I'm not a seasoned swapper! I'm still learning little tricks and things to do with swaps, like extras or package decoration, but I definitely will always put my all into every single one!

ATCs

I love-love-love ATCs. I haven't been making them for too long, but I'm definitely a bit crazed for them, haha. Especially ones of the hand-painted and hand-drawn variety. I love really detailed ATCs with quite a bit to look at, or even ATCs that makes a statement/have a purpose (whatever that means to you!). When being sent ATCs, I'd love to hear your process and how they were created! I also always am in need of and appreciate ATC Backings.

Themes I love - Landscape, Mountains, Water, Female Form (classy or otherwise, I don't care), Animals, Cards with Poems on them/with them, Symbolism**, Moon and Stars, Homemade Tarot Cards, etcetcetc (get creative with it!).

My ATC Gallery (May contain swap Spoilers)

Art Journalling

I am currently working on an art journal (my pride and joy!). I would post a gallery of it, but I write very personal things within the journaling aspects, which collide with the art constantly. My art journal has a consistent, semi strict theme of Pastel Pink, Pastel Blue, and Black (and variations off the two. I also tend to include regular pink/blue, maroon/navy, sometimes Pastel Yellow, etc, rarely). The style I go for is a mix of Kawaii/Bullet Journal/Junk Journal. Generally, I've been making a habit of adding swap-bot things to my journal so they don't just pile up elsewhere in a box or something.

I would LOVE if anyone would like to add anything to my journal! Be it art, poetry, photos (especially Instax!), or even a journal entry from yourself! (Please! I'd love to add other's stuff in here.) The only catch to that I suppose is that I love to add to other's art and collaborate on top of it, so if you don't want something touched, just let me know!

Favorites

Some people are very strict or don't like being sent extras, but I assure you, I will enjoy almost anything you decide to send! I have a very small stash at the moment, so if you have some stuff you don't think you'll ever use and you think I might like it, then by all means! I'll appreciate it a lot! :)

  • = Especially Love.

Comment: thank you for the beautiful package!! I love the tiny mirror, I like to put them in windows and near crystals too! and I'm surprised by the Tarot card because a few years ago I went to a magical gathering in which we had to dress as a tarot they sent and this was the deck! ( I was sent a high priestess card which was fun to dress as)
