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

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)
  • scrunchie hair ties
  • socks

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.

Comment: I love the donut poem!! They are full of delight! The mountains in the dark piece is particularly relevant right now with that feeling about something being out there.

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card! I used to make PB balls with my mom for Christmas too! And, when I was a tiny kid, my Grandma made me a gingerbread man, and apparently I cried and cried because I didn't want anyone to eat the man! LOL! I love ginger cookies and cake! :) especially with lemon frosting! YUM! Merry Christmas!

Thank you so much for angeling me 💙 I really do appreciate it. I will pass on the generosity when the opportunity arises.

I love the writing papers you sent, and the cute stickers as well. I will check out that comic you mentioned too!

Thank you 😊

Chantiemaya on Jan 5, 2020:

I’m so glad you got the swap that made a detour through me :)) It took forever but good to know it’s finally there!

Vintagecraft on Nov 26, 2019:

Hi, you have only sent me 20 stickers not 50 as we agreed. Terribly disappointed in the dishonesty of some people

RooBaRoo on Nov 12, 2019:

Thanks so much! :)

neva on Oct 4, 2019:

Thank you for the tiny postcard! It actually did get here! So cute!

Cyanocitta on Oct 3, 2019:

Ps I cant wait to try the teas, the look tasty! I really like the papers you sent as well, very interesting. I will put them to good use!

Cyanocitta on Oct 3, 2019:

I wish I could rate you 5 and lots of hearts. ❤❤ Thank you for sending me a swap for the Mail swap 1. I really appreciate it!

mgallardo68 on Sep 17, 2019:

You should be getting another 2 envelopes. They all were sent at the same time.

milamilamura on Sep 6, 2019:

Girl!! This finally made it! It sure did take a long while but the wait was so worth it! Thanks for all the paper pieces, I love them! The stamps are gorgeous and so is the envelope with skulls (thanks for sharing it with me). And the tea! That brand is one of my favorites ever and I just can't wait to take a much needed break and enjoy a cup of that wonderful tea. Thank you so much! Looking forward to swap with you again :) Have a fabulous weekend!

LunaCass on Jul 23, 2019:

Thank you so much for space, stars, & science grabbie! I love how you matched everything, including the stamps. :) I will definitely be using some of these items for my journal and decorating other things. Thanks for a great grabbie!
