About Me

Hello! I'm a student in my 30s and a longtime mailartist and penpaller. I'm on here mostly for small "random items" type swaps that allow me to pick out treasures to send you from my dragon's hoard of stationery, etc., but occasionally will do more involved swaps.

Favourite Crafts

acrylic painting; my usual style involves heavily diluting the paint so the results look a lot like watercolours:

Arabian ibis

poetry; I'm influenced by modern and contemporary Canadian poetry, surrealism, language poetry, and Stuff I Found On The Internet.

Favourite Craft Themes

  • birds (owls, pelicans, crows and magpies)
  • ocean (jellies, sea stars, algae)
  • space (stars, nebulae, planets and moons)
  • fantasy and science fiction (original or myth-based)
  • extinct animals (stegosaurus, dimetrodon, pterodactyl)
  • cities (skylines, signs, cities at night)
  • colour schemes (blue & turquoise, neon green & black, purple & black, pink & brown)

Wish List

Handmade

  • hand-drawn or painted postcard
  • mail in a decorated envelope
  • handmade envelopes
  • handmade stickers
  • your poems or short stories
  • handmade necklaces
  • handmade hair bows

Clippings

  • simple vegetarian recipes
  • poems you like
  • promotional materials from art shows
  • Sudoku puzzles
  • paper and magazine cut-outs related to my interests as I've just started a traveler's journal. It has to be thin or regular weight paper; unfortunately I don't have a use for patterned cardstock or scrapbooking die-cuts.

Storebought items

  • kawaii stationery
  • colourful pens and Sharpies
  • adult colouring postcards (please only send the postcards, if possible; I have enough colouring sheets and books to last an eternity)

Odds and Ends

  • pretty much any stickers or washi samples or stationery you have lying around ;)
  • Some of my favourite characters that appear on stationery and stickers are Aggretsuko, Rilakkuma, Kuromi, Doc McStuffins, and the Tokidoki Mermicornos.

Tea (individually packaged, please)

  • with coconut
  • with vanilla
  • nettlewort
  • most teas, really, but please don't send mint or rooibos if you can avoid it

General Interests

Science, especially ecology.

Contemporary art

Poetry

Pop music, but for music swaps I'm interested in any musical genre.

Manga and comics, my respective favourites being Sailor Moon and Saga.

Kawaii. I'm not picky about it, so feel free to send any character or brand.

Angels

Thank you to @jannikinz , @Traceyk , @runswithscizzors , @dearguppy , and @mgallardo68 for angeling swaps for me.

Thank you to @RooBaRoo for my Swap-Bot icon.

Comment: Oh my goodness. 🚗😮 Thank gosh you were not alone when your tire went flat in the middle of no where. I had to use CAA once, in the middle of farm country and they couldn't figure out where I was. I hope your enjoying your new adventure in that rural town. I googled it and the neighbourhoods look quite nice--cute little houses and well-kept. Thanks so much for your fun postcard, bblue.

What a gorgeous envelope!!! Thank you for all the wonderful goodies from the I collect... tag. Never thought about a fav Clow Card, but I do love the episode with the Maze card, as we get Mizuki sensei, who is all kinds of awesome. ;-)

Thank you so much for the index cards for Leola’s box. We were sent to work from home due to a COVID outbreak and have yet to be called back so as luck would have it, they came in plenty of time since we have yet to exchange Christmas gifts :). I am absolutely blown away by your talent! Thanks again !

Thank you for the PC's and stationery from the PF tag, "Help! I can't find ____." You always send such cool stuff! No, I wasn't affected by the explosion in Nashville, thankfully. I'm about 3.5 hours away by car.

Thank you so much for the “Send To The Person Above You” tag! The paper was all so very interesting- perfect for collage and other creativity!
