About Me

Free Cat Hair With Every Swap!

I do market research professionally, and Swap-Bot is a great creative outlet for me! I love to make ATCs and decos when I have the time, and try all kinds of new crafts. I am vegetarian and a huge nerd. I am crazy about the sport of jugger, which I very much recommend checking out. I have two kitties who are my babies.

mah kittehs

PM me if you want to do a private swap, need a new (sometimes slow AF) penpal, want excess decos (I usually have some), or want to ask me about jugger! :)

My top wishlist thing right now is house/home themed ATCs, especially mixed media. I want to get enough to do a 3x3 or bigger display for my office.

Swap Philosophy

I always try to go above and beyond in my swaps and aim for hearts. If you feel that I don't deserve a heart, I would genuinely like to know why. Even if it's negative feedback I want to improve my art and swapping. It drives me crazy to do what I think is a really nice job and feel like I've disappointed my partner!

I normally read profiles carefully and tailor swaps to my swap partners' preferences to the extent possible. I don't generally join swaps with tight deadlines, because I hate feeling rushed and I like doing art when I'm really in the mood for it. So I will try and do a nice job on your swap, and base it on your profile if I can, but it won't usually be sitting there all generically waiting to mail as soon as partners are assigned. Please let me know if something doesn't arrive. I will resend lost or missing swaps.

I don't think anyone should host swaps they aren't willing to angel themselves. If hosts are expected to cover for flakers, they will do a better job screening them out. I hate to see situations where hosts ask for angels (or worse, the individual flaked on has to ask themselves) when it's the host's poor screening that caused the problem. I cringe every times I see a swap host saying they won't angel. Don't host if you won't angel! I will ALWAYS angel my hosted swaps. With that in mind, I am picky about screening people for my hosted swaps. I am usually willing to do private swaps with riskier people, but don't want to assume that risk for others in my swaps. I appreciate being notified if you see questionable swappers in my hosted swaps, but rest assured I will carefully look at all participants and ban anyone I find too risky, normally immediately before assigning partners.

Regarding Deco Books

I don't mind getting homers/last page decos unless it's contrary to swap requirements.

I've been getting a lot of decos recently in which I've already done a page. This is generally against deco swap guidelines, and is contrary to the point of deco books. Decos should have each page done by a different person, and sending them back and forth between the same people is a waste of postage! I don't want anyone reading this to think I am complaining about them specifically because it's happened a number of times recently. PLEASE check your decos and make sure the recipient hasn't done a page in them yet before sending!

I'd prefer not to receive decos that aren't in some kind of book form. Loose pages are a nice idea, but to me that's not really the same as a deco book. Plus it's difficult or impossible to determine who has already had it when "pages" go missing.

I often have excess decos to swap. Please send me a PM with your address if you are interested,

I'm happy to try and answer questions if you are new to decos (or swapping generally). I've been here a while and can usually help with basic protocol questions!

Themes I like

Anything hand drawn
Arizona themed
Dr. Pepper
House theme
Magic: the Gathering
Monograms/my initials (E.W.)
Penis drawings (they crack me up, it's "accidentally" become a collection)
Pokemon (esp. Blissey/Chancey, Magikarp, Hitmonchan)

If it's a pretty, well done ATC or deco I will probably love it no matter what the subject matter is. I am difficult to offend if it's not related to animal cruelty. I am generally amused by adult/sexual/nudity/swear word type themes. Particularly wieners. XD

Comment: Loved the swap. Thank you for the goodies. And you're not boring! I'm thinking I should be more responsible now though. Ha! Happy Swapping.
Response: I'm so relieved it arrived (and wasn't boring LOL) I was worried it would get lost or something since the envelope was different. I'm way too responsible, I don't recommend it! LOL thanks for rating and for the heart!
Comment: I loved the list you put together for me. It put a smile on my face...

Comment: I love the ATC, the TWO extra ATCs, and that fab stationary.
Response: Glad you like them! I wish I'd gotten like 50 packages of that stationary when it was in stores... I think the whole brand was discontinued at some point and it was THE BEST.

PeliKat rated for Surprise ATCs - December on Dec 28, 2017
Comment: Emma, thank you so much for the wonderful ATCs for this swap! I love the technique you used on them; I especially like the blackout poetry one. I've done blackout poetry before, but had never thought about using it on an ATC. Thanks for the extra stickers too. The little Frenchie in the blue sweater is so cute and the others are already inspiring future projects. Great swap!
Response: Yay! Glad you liked it! I love blackout poetry, but it takes forever to find pages/phrases that work. Really fun when it does though! Glad you liked the swap. :)
Comment: Looove this! So many tentacles and the stamps are so friggin cute!
Response: Yayy!

sabbysteg rated for FOPS - Send a PC, Get a PC on Dec 19, 2017
Comment: Hi there, thanks for the postcards, I agree, my favorite swappers are in FOPS as well. :) And yes, an unsolicited nudie pic occurred, not with me though the offender did do something not very appropriate towards me, but I can't even recall what it was, or even who! It was someone from Germany, I want to say. There was a big public fracas in the forum and he got banned earlier this year.
Response: Thanks for the rating! That is terrible Definitely something to avoid!
Comment: WOO! Thank you! I love the postcards and stcikers and atcs! thanks so much
Response: Yay! Glad you like it! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the hand painted penis ornament! I love it 😊 thanks also for the extra ornaments of pickle and balls! Haha. This was a really fun swap, thanks so much!!!
Response: Yay! Glad you liked it, it was so much fun to make! :)
Comment: Nice, could go for a leaf
Response: LOL Yup! I was shooting for almost subtle! :P
Comment: Thanks!!!
