~If you have any issues with a swap I've sent, contact me before rating. I enjoy sending more than receiving and do not join swaps I cannot fulfill!~
I'm married to an awesome nerdy guy and we have a 1 year old little boy named Atlas!
Swaps without identifying information (I am in a lot of swaps so if there is no username or swap name I cannot look through them all trying to figure out who sent what):
A foil pink parcel with a lot of 2017 calendar things and paper goods. (No note inside)
An envelope from Rebecca Sireech with no user name or swap name.

β These are special items that I'm either looking for or will certainly appreciate you sending! If you happen to have any please PM me for a private swapβ
While I try to pass on things I cannot use, I would prefer not receive the following:
RELIGIOUS THINGS (mostly monotheism)
memo pads, sticky notes
food items, like candy or chocolate
"keep calm and carry on" theme
disney/pixar, 'kids' stuff in general
censored things. I am STRONGLY against censorship in all forms!
holiday items (any holiday, I do not celebrate many)
shorthand/ text speak
I collect the following topics:
Vintage!!! The older the better! I adore collecting these in ~any~ topic!! I even love receiving used vintage postcards (in an envelope).
black and white photography and art
graveyards and morbid themes (mortuaries, autopsies, serial killers, anything along those lines)
nature scenes with no people or buildings
Gothic, Victorian, Punk, Alternative, etc.
weird (interpret this however you'd like, if it makes you think WTF, I'll probably like it)
industrial & mechanical
dark or occult
sea creatures (cephalopods!)
national parks (retro preferred, but any are great)
art deco/ art nouveau
I'm not crazy the following topics:
holiday (of any kind)
ones with a lot of text, or only text
people, famous or non
ad/free unless I am in a swap specifically for that
tourist-y (unless vintage 80's or older)
vintage reproduction, I am just not into faux vintage things. I like the real deal.
~Tazo Passion tea is one of my favorites, and sadly no stores around me carry it~
I am happy to receive any other flavors (other than those listed below) and I also love loose leaf teas that are labeled! My favorite types of tea are pur eh, ginger, floral, fruity, and minty. I love herbal teas! I prefer green, white, and rooibos to blacks.
earl gray & english breakfast
I try to be lenient and understanding. Life isn't always predictable, so unless someone is a serial flaker I like to give people another chance.
I HATE people who critique every last detail, like postmarks that are a day or two "late", or measuring things to find them to be exact. If you do this and I find out you will be BANNED! Swapping is for FUN not critiquing every last detail!
To me a "filled out" profile is at least 2-3 sentences. Some people aren't picky about what they get, and might not have a lot to say. I do not allow people with 'blank profiles', but If this bothers you, do not join my swaps.
If you are flaked on I will gladly send you something! I always expect people in my swaps to receive something. No one should feel left out! Just send me a message and I'll take care of you! JUST LET ME KNOW!
I DON'T DO DRAMA. All drama queens will be blocked. This includes people who argue about swap "types" and are generally nit-picky in swaps.
If you don't agree with how I do my swaps DON'T JOIN THEM! Simple as that. You will NOT be missed =D
