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

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 stationery you have lying around ;)
  • vegan makeup samples

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. My current favourite character is Aggretsuko, but I'm not picky about kawaii, so feel free to send any character or brand.

Angels

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

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

Comment: Thanks for the note--I hope your ' reserve ' issues are over now! It must be difficult when you need the books for a course and so does everyone else! 😀

Thank you for the envie full of fun goodies you sent for Happy Mail tag in the public forum. It got damaged during the journey and there is a big hole in the envie. Some of the papers are a bit wrinkled, but mostly usable. If there was anything small, it was lost.
