About Me

Geeky, gothy artist and musician

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.

πŸ–€ Things I Love πŸ–€

Anything Irish, castles, spoopy things (cute & spooky!), mushrooms, fantasy, sci-fi, classic horror (not slasher stuff), all things dark and beautiful.

About Me

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.

Patterns I Like

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!

Scrapbook Paper Faves

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!

πŸ–€ Wishes πŸ–€

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)

Washi tape

Fancy stickers

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.

πŸ–€ Art πŸ–€

Modern art (Kandinsky, Rothko, O’Keeffe...) πŸ–€ abstraction with bright colors and organic shapes πŸ–€ Art Nouveau (Mucha, Beardsley...) πŸ–€ Post-Impressionism and Symbolism (Van Gogh, Gauguin, Munch, Klimt...) πŸ–€ Pre-Raphaelites, esp. Rossetti πŸ–€ ancient and pre-historic art and artifacts πŸ–€ Postmodern and Contemporary art. πŸ–€ These are some favorites, but I love art, so I'll love anything with a famous artwork on it!

Art I Like

πŸ–€ Authors/Poets πŸ–€

Sci Fi/Fantasy/dystopian/Modernist Poetry/Romanticism: Ursula Le Guin, Neil Gaiman, Margaret Atwood, George Orwell, Phillip K. Dick, Kurt Vonnegut, J. R. R. Tolkien, Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, W. B. Yeats, Percy Bysshe Shelley

πŸ–€ TV πŸ–€

Star Trek, Doctor Who, Battlestar Gallactica, Buffy, The X-Files, The Expanse, Stranger Things, Fringe, Firefly, Warehouse 13, Game of Thrones (yeah, except the end), Westworld, Sense8, Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra, Monty Python and British comedy, generally (Black Books, IT Crowd…)

πŸ–€ Movies πŸ–€

The Matrix, Lord of the Rings, Labyrinth, Legend, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (NOT other Spider-Man stuff!), Blade Runner, The Princess Bride, Pan’s Labyrinth, Spirited Away, Princess Kaguya, Song of the Sea, Brazil, Memento, Inception, anything by Miyazaki/Ghibli

MoviesTV I Like

πŸ–€ Music πŸ–€

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.

πŸ–€πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ§‘β€πŸ–€

Black Lives Matter.

Love is love.

πŸ–€πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ§‘β€πŸ–€

Please Don't Send

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.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely full envelope. Your Cat has a lovely name, very regal as is deserving of a Cat, mine is a rescue Cat and I think the Sanctuary probably called him Smudge but made a mistake on his adoption papers but it stuck and it suits him, he's quite an individual 🐱
Response: Thank you! But Smodge is a great name, even as an accident! Orpheus (Orphie for short) was a rescue, too. Before I adopted him at 3 months, he was bottle-fed orphan. So he's very attached to his humans!

Comment: Ooh la-la, stationary from the Ritz Carlton! :):):) Lovely ATC! You did such a nice job with the drawing. I must have tried to sketch a triskelion 20 times and they just woulnd't come out and I ended up using a stamp, haha! It's a special symbol to me and I'm glad to have your ATC. The 3200 BC triskelions sound amazing! Thank you for sharing :):):)
Response: You're very welcome!
