30-something, video game producer, Seattle (by way of Oakland). I have a pug and two cats. I'm queer, vegetarian, gluten free (yay IBS!!), and straight edge (but could care less if you are none of these things! ;) )... Homebody/introvert. Shower singer, and bedroom dancer... pleased to meet you!
In short, I'm all about: video games, printmaking, my pug, chocolate, snail mail, crafting, sewing, and baking.
I also love handmade/DIY, art/illustration, kawaii, zines, playlists/reading recommendations, letters, washi (especially really awesome geometrics and really elaborate scenics), unusual/art stickers, polaroid/instax type photos, celestial/constellation stuff, Adventure Time (especially Marcelline/Marshall Lee/Bubblegum/Fiona/Cake), Sailor Moon!, hand carved stamps/prints, fruit decaf teas, anything grapefruit scented/flavored, mail art, cute animals (goats, ponies, sheep, bats, llamas!! and all number of birds), good pens, cute/interesting pins, nice/well made sewing notions, shrinky-dinks, cell phone charms, cute crochet patterns, skulls/bones/macabre... and so much more!
Video game loves: anything Zelda, Animal Crossing, Stardew Valley. (I'm a Nintendo fangirl at heart... lover of Yoshi games, and Princess Peach karter... I also love cute indie games and good puzzle games!)
Colors: teal/turquoise/cerulean!! Black/white, mint and gold!
*Anything overtly sexist/racist/homophobic/transphobic/downright hateful
*Heavily scented items
*Coconut/banana scented/flavored things
To give you an idea of the things I like to do in my "spare" time -- I've been focusing on doing a lino-cut printed envelope every month (for all of my snail mail correspondence). Here's the lineup so far! (See more on my Instagram!)

Again, this is a tough one... I listen to just about everything -- but I'm a bit of an indie snob at heart. Check out this playlist for an idea of what I might listen to on an average day. You might even find something you like!! (Please be warned: there are tons of tracks in the playlist that contain profanity and/or graphic lyrics.)
