About Me

Update 10/3/19: I will be out of town from 10/4-10/6. While I am returning on 10/6, I may not make it onto the site until the 7th - it is going to be a long/tiring weekend for me and my introverted self may need some down time without being near a computer lol. Everything has been sent and rated through today - whatever I receive this weekend, I will rate as soon as I get back.

If you have checked my profile more than once in the past month or so, you have probably seen the above message a few different times. I didn't do any traveling at all for the first 8 months of the year and starting with the 3rd week in August, I seem to be making up for lost time. It's good to get away and I have lots of new postcards to swap!!!

I'm a ska kid that refuses to grow up.

I love going to shows (in and out of state). Nothing makes me happier than being able to somehow incorporate a road trip and a ska show. My next road trip is coming up in July when I drive to NJ for the weekend to see the Mighty Mighty Bosstones.

I play a lot of video games. Nintendo is knocking it out of the park lately and I am counting the days until the new Fire Emblem game is released but there are probably half a dozen games on my list to buy this year. I will need a second job soon if these companies keep announcing games at this rate!

I also have a PS4, a Steam account, and am an avid Pokemon Go player.

Currently binge watching: One Piece and Hunter x Hunter

Favorite Books

The Warriors Series by Erin Hunter is my all time favorite book series. If you have not read it, you need to put it on your "must read" list!!!

I am also a big Harry Potter fan

Favorite authors include Jodi Picoult and Meg Cabot

I also really enjoy historical fiction, stories about anthropomorphic animals, true crime, anything on WW2/the Holocaust, and memoirs/autobiographical stories.

Favorite Movies

Kevin Smith is my favorite director and Clerks is my favorite View Askew movie.

I really enjoy Star Wars, Harry Potter, and the Hunger Games.

I am a huge fan of the MCU.

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking and bead weaving are the two biggies. I make my own greeting cards/Christmas cards.

I also dabble in other crafts...making wreaths, photo frames, etc.

Next on the list is learning how to crochet as well as learning how to make Terrariums (I saw some Pokemon ones at comic con this past year and simply fell in love with them)

Collections

-Postcards
-Rubber duckies
-Lego minifigs
-POP! Funko
-Amiibos
-Enamel Pins

Postcard Preferences

I sign up for a lot of postcard swaps so thought it might be a good idea to list some of my preferences:

-Map cards
-Recipe cards
-Anything weather related (specifically lightning and tornadoes)
-Stadium cards
-Handmade cards
-Water related (waterfalls, bridges over rivers, etc.)
-Revere Beach/Revere, MA vintage cards (this is a very specific item in my collection as I grew up in Revere and collect all old Revere postcards. I have 70+ right now that I have found at various antique malls, etc.)

Favorite Vacation Spots

I love to travel! I don't do it as often as I like but I do have a few favorite spots:

-Gatlinburg, TN and the Great Smoky Mountains
-Las Vegas, NV
-Austin, TX

I would love postcards from my favorite places!!!

Likes

I do not expect extra goodies in the swaps I receive but I know that some like to include them so I thought I would list some likes/preferences:

-Postcards are always welcome! See my postcard preferences above but really, I'm happy with any postcards that you want to send.

-Washi tape. I am obsessed with washi. I use it a lot when I make cards.

-Anything Kawaii/anime related will be very well received. This includes stickers, stationary, etc. Just anything. Some current obsessions are Gudetama, Aggretsuko (I hope everyone watched season 2!!!!!), Bananya, My Hero Academia, Hunter x Hunter...

-Enamel Pins are a new favorite of mine. If you can match a pin to my interest, I would for sure love it :)

I'll add more to this list as I think of more. Please, if it is not on this list, do not send it (unless we are partners in a swap that calls for something not on the list). I think it's really kind that everyone is so generous and includes extras in their swaps but I recently cleaned out my craft supplies, stickers, etc. and I do not want to build up the clutter again. I do not need extras to give hearts - I will give hearts a lot if you take the time to write a note on your postcard, if you match something to my interests, etc. Thank you! :)
