Full disclosure: I returned to swap-bot after 10 years away, but no longer had access to my old account or the email associated with it. I did let swap-bot admin know. Here is my old account with a 5.0 rating: amymc.
Just about anything you receive from me other than postcards or basic craft supplies will be handmade or hand drawn.
If something doesn't arrive within a reasonable time, please let me know. I will resend.
Anything Irish, castles, spoopy things (cute & spooky!), mushrooms, fantasy, sci-fi, classic horror (not slasher stuff), all things dark and beautiful.
Animals: cats (especially black cats), horses (including their fantasy counterparts), elephants, octopuses, bats, owls, crows and ravens
Colors: purple, cool colors, jewel tones, grey, black, pink, plus sparkly, shiny, or velvety things in any color
Styles: Romantic Goth, old-school Goth, pastel Goth, punk, Boho, retro/mid-20th Century
Patterns/fabrics: damask, plaid, paisley, brocade, fleur-de-lis, Greek key, houndstooth, jacquard, toile. I also love notions, trims, tassels, and ribbons.
Art/Crafts: painting (mainly acrylic, learning watercolor), paper crafting (cards, bookmarks, scrapbooking), sewing clothes
Scrapbook Papers: Anything that's not too cutesy or specifically for babies or small children, such as Sesame Street, etc. I personally love fancy papers, but I can use all kinds of papers in all colors for things I make for other people! The collage below shows some of my favorites and ones I wish for!
Postcards: I like artsy or geeky stuff for myself (fine art postcards are my favorite). But any kind of new postcard in an envelope is good so I can have a variety of things to send to others. I do like ephemera/advertising postcards if they are artistic or educational, especially from museums, art galleries, and libraries. It’s okay if they’re printed on the back! I also don’t mind re-used/recycled/handmade/Zazzle postcards. If you think it suits my style, send it!
New or used postage stamps with any of these designs: Star Trek, dragons, moon landing, spooky silhouettes (or other designs you have that suit my style)
Special Project: I am looking for very small nick knacks and 3-D objects to place in a wall piece that has over a hundred small rectangular compartments. The display and the objects will be entirely (or mostly) painted, so it doesn’t matter what the objects are, as long as they are 3D and about 1 x 1 x 1.5 inches or smaller.
Modern art (Kandinsky, Rothko, O’Keeffe...) 🖤 abstraction with bright colors and organic shapes 🖤 Art Nouveau (Mucha, Beardsley...) 🖤 Post-Impressionism and Symbolism (Van Gogh, Gauguin, Munch, Klimt...) 🖤 Pre-Raphaelites, esp. Rossetti 🖤 ancient and pre-historic art and artifacts 🖤 Postmodern and Contemporary art. 🖤 These are some favorites, but I love art, so I'll love anything with a famous artwork on it!

We don't exchange music anymore on Swap-bot, but if you're interested, just a few of my favorites are The Cure, Pure Reason Revolution, Muse, Depeche Mode, & Rush. I have been described as "Prog Goth." I am a singer and a bassist. Unfortunately, my band is on hold due to Covid 19.
Disney (except Haunted Castle), things for babies or small children, Star Wars, animal products (leather, feathers, fur…), food, candy, or tea, preachy religious items (religious imagery--of any religion--is great, but please no Bible verses or tracts), anything depicting guns/violence/hunting/fishing.
Again, please don't send anything made with leather, feathers, or fur.
