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, gelli print, and do decos when I have the time, and try all kinds of new crafts. I am vegetarian and a huge nerd. I have two kitties who are my babies.

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

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.

Stuff I like

Bright/neon colors
Buttons & brads
Easy vegetarian recipes
Good ATCs
Interesting ephemera/smash stuff
Jugger (best sport ever. Google it.)
Magic: the Gathering
Mix CDs
Pokemon Go (Team Valor & Blissey is the best Pokemon!)

Stuff I don't like

Animal cruelty
Excessive use of stickers
Religion - unless it's ironic or Chick Tracts, I love those for terrible reasons!

Regarding Deco Books

I actually prefer homer/last page decos to keep my pile manageable, 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! 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
Data / Graphs / Spreadsheets
Dr. Pepper
House/home theme
Magic: the Gathering
Monograms/my initials (E.W.)
Penis drawings (they crack me up, it's "accidentally" become a collection). No peen photographs though please!
Pokemon (esp. Blissey/Chancey, Magikarp, Hitmonchan)

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


Comment: What a beautiful and remarkable envelope! Your paint layers are incredible! I need to take a lesson from you! I love hmpc's and this is my first collab! I think it's awesome. I hope they come around again soon too! Your addition was adorable! I think coffee would also be answer, but instead of being redundant I may put tea, and chocolate 😆. Thank you so much for all the extras! The stickers are amazing! You must have an incredible stash to be able to part with stickers that were so clearly profile picked for me! And the extra PC's were so generous! It's funny, I just sent out an identical beach pc! Thank you so much. Can't wait to get paired with you again soon 🌻💖💐
Response: Yay!! So glad you liked all of it. :)

Comment: Hi there Emma. Thanks for the sweet decos. Both of your pages were great.....really loved the zentangle one. Thanks for the stickers too.
Comment: This girl was so helpful to me the past couple weeks since I am new and the deco swap was perfect plus the extras!
Comment: This swap was an absolute DELIGHT. I received a gorgeous colored pencil / gelli print drawing as the "official" (required) ATC.... AND... a second beautifully collaged ATC... AND... two sheets of stickers.... AND... the kindest and most affirming note (with references to my profile. I always love to know someone took the time to go there). All in a beautiful belli-printed envelope. I wish we could give multiple hearts. THANK YOU so much!
Response: I'm so happy you liked it all! Thanks so much for your kind words, really made my day. :)
