About Me

Messy haired, fair skinned, blue-eyed. INFP. 8R. I'm the kind who dabbles, but rarely masters. I'm trying to get better at focusing my intentions and efforts on things I deem in alignment with my future goals. I write, draw, paint, sculpt, photograph, journal – just your some-of-everything Creatrix. An eternal student at heart. I like to explore. My interests are music. Flow Arts (silk fans, flow wand, poi, etc). Art. Driving without a destination. Nature living. Metaphysics. Coffee & herb. Yoga. Homebody. Chinese food in bed. Movie nights. Psychology. The sound of a piano. Hiking. Philosophy & Indian food. The beat generation. Spirituality. Universal Love. I never want to forget a single thing, experience, moment, or feeling, and because of this, I am constantly documenting (whether in film, paint, lead, or journals).

Favorite Music

I LOVE music!...and I probably listen to more techno than a gay bar (but normal is just so boring, huh?)...so, here starts the list at Jefferson Airplane. Bob Dylan. Ben Harper. Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show. Simon & Garfunkel. The Mamas and the Papas. The Youngbloods. Wolfmother. The Byrds. Donovan. Janis Joplin. Franz Ferdinand. Of Montreal. Sly & the Family Stone. Steppenwolf. The Troggs. Strawberry Alarm Clock. Regina Spektor. Weezer. Bush. Queens of the Stone Age. Anita Ward. Pearl Jam. The Beatles. Bill Withers. Queen. Blink 182. Kansas. Tenacious D. Bruce Springsteen. Captain & Tenille. The Cars. Nahko & Medicine for the People. Coldplay. Mika. Collective Soul. Pink Floyd David Bowie. The Doobie Brothers. The Doors. Falco. The Fray. Gavin DeGraw. The Fugees. The Fire Theft. Jimi Hendrix. John Mayer. KC and the Sunshine Band. The Killers. The Knack. The Lemon Pipers. The Kinks. Low Millions. Melissa Etheridge. The Monkees. Poison. Nirvana. The Prodigy. The Posies. Puddle of Mud. Sarah McLachlan. Six Pence None the Richer. Elton John. Simple Minds. Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. Tonic. DHT. War. Yes. The Who. and I think I'll stop the list at...last, but most definitely not least...U2.

Favorite Books

Oh, where to begin with my love affair with literature? Howl (and really anything written by ginsberg), on the road, ping, the electric kool-aid acid tests, Salinger, girl interrupted, rucksack revolution, one flew over the cuckoo's nest, the bell jar, an unquiet mind, the skeptic's dictionary, the slaughterhouse five, night, babylon, the third wave, goodnight moon, ken kesey's spit in the ocean and other journals, the dharma bums, blood of the wig, the satan seller, the iliad and odyssey, edgar allen poe, hawthorne, mark twain (except for the prince and the pauper - lame.), to kill a mockingbird, of mice and men (depressing), shakespeare's comedies, anything dr. seuss, metaphysics by david hamlyn, death of a salesman, 12 angry jurors, meditations by rene descartes, the theory of consciousness, the andy warhol diaries, Confessions of a Synthetic Starfucker- the Unexpurgated Memoirs of a Celebrity Hairpiece, and all, yes ALL, of the Harry Potter books!

Favorite Movies

XX/YY, eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, the devil and daniel johnston, The royal tennenbaums, fight club, a clockwork orange, I heart huckabees, everything is illuminated, art school confidential, the red door, alice and wonderland, lost in translation, cry baby, american psycho, dazed and confused, speak, a door in the floor, girl, the virgin suicides, american beauty, se7en, memento, the rocky horror picture show, rent, thunderstruck, stoned, clerks, chasing amy, kissing jessica stein, the life aquatic, reality bites, party monster, donnie darko, the secretary, the dead poet's society, the matrix trilogy, Paprika, the science of sleep, superbad, babel, high art, knocked up, juno, children of men, brick, moulin rouge, pride and prejudice, the constant gardener, my summer of love, broken flowers, 21 grams, the pianist, session 9, wonderland, shopgirl --- really, too many to list! I love movies, it's true.

Favorite Television

Television will rot the mind. That being said, I LOVE Bob's Burgers, the X-Files, the Mighty Boosh, Rick & Morty, Black Mirror, Grace & Frankie, and Pushing Daisies. I also like the office, arrested development, better off ted, black books, seinfeld, the expanse, and killjoys.

Favorite Crafts

I am a painter, but enjoy working with oil pastels, graphite, charcoals, and almost any other medium! I also love drawing, exchanging penpal letters (and artful extras), I'm big on ATCs and pocket letters, I can knit scarves and basically dabble in everything else (such as wood burning, resin pours, weaving, etc)...basically, give me art or give me death! If you're curious about my artwork, I would encourage you to check out my deviantart account (I could always use feedback on there!)

Score Some Hearts

I usually try to send some extras just because. If you want to throw in extra goodies specifically for hearts, here are some things that WILL put you on my favorite people list:

  • teeth (human & animal)
  • bones (especially skulls or small ones I can incorporate into jewelry)
  • locks of hair (especially dyed samples, dreads, braids, or unusual)
  • feathers (the more exotic or bigger, the better)
  • well preserved animal claws or talons
  • succulents or cacti (plants, seeds, or propagation babies)
  • packets of non-outdated plant seeds, especially to grow succulents, palms, or tropical fruits (exotic or rare a plus!)
  • essential oils, tinctures, plant medicine (especially if made by you!)
  • dried herbs, petals, pressed flowers, plant seeds, etc. (my dream is to have a partner in a tropical location to send me usable seeds!)
  • all-natural, organic, cruelty-free makeup, health & beauty products
  • things to do with alternative wellness (yoga, meditation, chakras)
  • massage therapy & anatomy books, tools, or supplies (I'm a recent LMT)
  • old medical instruments & anatomy figures
  • things to do with ancient egypt (particularly jewelry/ decorative)
  • mala/ prayer beads of all faiths
  • foreign coins (not USA)
  • natural elements (think porcupine quills, mummified critters, shedded snake skins, old bee hives/ honeycomb, fossils, etc)
  • gemstones (especially labradorite & smokey quartz)
  • tarot & intention cards (even misplaced ones, but especially whole decks!)
  • twist-off metal beer/ bottle caps & metal pop tabs
  • spent metal bullet casings & metal ends of shotgun shells (for my jewelry)
  • foreign chocolate & teas
  • DIY all-natural essential oil scrubs, lotions, body butters, shampoo bars, soaps, bath bombs, face masks, etc)

Pending Swaps

Okay, this section is for swaps that either I need to send out, or that I have not yet recieved. It's just a good way for me to keep track of my swaps....and for you (if you've not recieved your stuff from me yet)!

OUTGOING:

INCOMING:

Please DON'T Send

Please don't send any of the following. I'm trying to live a more waste-free life where possible, and unfortunately, these items just won't get used or appreciated here. Best save them for another home! :)

  • makeup/ nail polish/ body products (I'm all-natural & very particular about what I put on, or in, my body)

  • candles/ perfumes/ synthetic scents/ fresheners (it is incredibly hard for me to breathe around these types of things)

  • If possible, please do not send things made of plastic, unless it is part of a particular swap, art supplies themselves, or CD/DVDs. click here to learn more about the plastic crisis

Comment: Thank you for the envelope of magical bits (literally and figuratively)! I like these “its gonna be okay” sheets from the knock-knock stuff. They make some fun stuff! The quotes, immuniTEA, and barcode stickers are interesting too. I would have to say that mostly it’s the guitar pick that tops the cake 🍰 and makes my day!
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your goodies. Thank you for joining my swap...I hope to see you in future versions! :)

Profile quote #20 I think every person has their own identity and beauty. Everyone being different is what is really beautiful. If we were all the same, it would be boring.
