About Me

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.

Likes

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!

Dislikes

*Loose glitter
*Sports
*Anything religious
*Anything overtly sexist/racist/homophobic/transphobic/downright hateful
*Heavily scented items
*Coconut/banana scented/flavored things

Monthly Envelopes 2016

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!)

*January *February *March *April *May *June *July *August *September *October *November *December

Favorite Books

This is such a tough one for me, since I read voraciously... but here's a list... incomplete and not in any particular order, of books I loved reading:

*Number 9 Dream by David Mitchell
*The Gone-Away World by Nick Harkaway
*Blindness by Jose Saramago
*The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros
*The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell (and her follow up, Children of God)
*Palimpsest by Catherynne Valente
*The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson
*The Magicians trilogy by Lev Grossman
*Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson
*American Gods by Neil Gaiman
*Fragrant Harbor by John Lanchester
*Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto
*Saga series by Brian Vaughan
*Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
*Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman
*Emperor Mollusk versus The Sinister Brain by A. Lee Martinez
*The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
*Silo books by Hugh Howey
*His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman
*Blue Ant trilogy by William Gibson (especially Zero History!)
*The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz
*Battle Royale by Koushun Takami

Favorite Music

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.)

Comment: Thank you for all the fun goodies! Cant wiat to use them. :-). I love your decorated envelope. The stamped images are so cute. Are they from a specific stamp set? The mini envelopes with the mail box on them are cute as well! Thank you for the poem. It is very fitting for me right now. Thank you again and have a great day! (sorry for the delayed rating; I have been out of state caring for my mom post stroke. I have just recently returned home). Thank you for understanding.
Response: Ah, so glad you liked everything! The images in the mailing were all drawn by me on an iPad using Procreate, and then set up in Photoshop to be printed on different things. :) I hope you and yours are all healthy and safe. <3

Comment: Thank you for this swap. I really liked all the postage themed stamps. What’s the name of this set and can I ask where you got it? Happy swapping 🌻
Response: Yay! So glad it arrived safely! :) I made everything I sent - drawn on an iPad in the Procreate app. I'll eventually turn some of the doodles into some free printables. If you follow along with my Instagram, I'll post the link in my bio there: @jewel__thief (two underscores :) )
