About Me

Hiya! I'm Brian from Stillwater, Oklahoma.

***** I HATE STAR WARS! *****

I'm a single guy, and somehow I'm living in rural Oklahoma next door to my parents. I always saw myself in a big city. Things don't always go as expected. I was raised here, but I spent a few years in Tulsa, OK and a few years in Anchorage, AK.

I'm vegan, a teetotaler, and a pacifist. I'm a guy, sure, but I don't have interest in cars or sports or things like that necessarily. There is no need to masculinize swaps for me. I'm not afraid of "girly" things.

Favorite Crafts

I'm a mixed media artist and I love creating art journals. It's tempting to make them big, but I prefer ones with only a few pages so they can represent a brief moment.

Happy Birthday!

I received your postcard today with your website on it. I checked it out. You seem like a really fun person! I look forward to more swaps with you.

Paige1900 on Aug 21, 2017:

LOL...I was just reading your profile, and saw that you liked Cicadas. They are so loud where I live that we can't sit on our back porch and hear ourselves talk.

I found the lenticular PCS at a store called Flying Tiger (or it could be Tyger, I forget). It is a store out of Denmark and it is sort of like this cool-designer style dollar store cheap stuff from China. But I couldn't resist postcards, notecards, tissue paper, ribbon, etc. I visited them in the Netherlands this summer and I looked at their website to see if they have stores here in the U.S. But I don't remember if they do or not because none in Colorado.
