About Me

Expressing myself through art has been something I felt like I never fully fleshed out, so here I am! I graduated with a degree in psychology so I have always enjoyed different perspectives. Hopefully I can create and share with others what is on my mind through the form of art. Vintage style has always been of interest to me aesthetically, but I tend to make things that are more eclectic and draws influence from pop art. (I still style with the former aesthetic though!) Sometimes I take pictures and heavily edit them to create a whole new image (my avi was originally just a picture of branches). Although, I do not tend to create digitally and prefer crafting with paper and miscellaneous materials. I usually have multiple projects going on, but I always try to make time for creativity.

I don't think I will be joining many more swaps for the remainder of this month with how busy it is, but I am looking forward to expanding to more crafts next year such as tags and zines. I'm still in the process of organizing my paper craft stuff so I hope once all the stuff are neat, I'll be able to create more efficiently.

Postcards

I am a proud supporter of Postcrossing and have been exchanging postcards for years now. In the past years, I've accumulated various themes including art exhibit collections, vintage style illustrations, dogs, cats, coloring pages, and many more. When it comes to receiving them, I love vintage (or styled) and handmade postcards. Specifically with the vintage ones, I like vacation remembrances, holiday themed, and advertisements. I'm not a fan of receiving multi-view, cityscapes, and insects or arachnids.

Goodies

Along with a variety of postcards, I also enjoy having different kinds of washi tape, stickers, and paper ephemera. I love the vintage inspired holiday themes (Christmas and Halloween) anytime of the year. I love sharing them as much as I do buying them!

Things I love getting from swaps:

washi tape samples

vintage (style) postcards and paper ephemera

address label stickers

unused US stamps

decorated envelopes

bandaids with a unique design

Regarding edible goodies, I have a sweet tooth for chocolate. I'm picky though, so here are some of my preferences:

milk/dark chocolate (not a fan of white)

love honeycomb! wafer, biscuit, toffee

nuts (almond, peanut, pistachio, or macadamia ONLY (allergic to walnuts and pecans)

don’t like fruit or alcohol flavored

Most days, I start off my day with coffee, but I also drink tea every now and then. I'm always interested in trying novelty snacks, but I am allergic to walnuts and pecans so please steer clear from sending anything with those in it.

I've been getting more into tea to subside nausea so I'd love some mint tea! Green tea has been working too, but I don't like the flavor as much. Thanks y'all for the mint tea -- keep them coming!

Favorite Music

When I like something, I tend to share it with others. So I often make playlists. I like to think that I listen to a variety of music, but Spotify only recognizes my top genres as "Alternative" and Rock. When I'm driving, I listen to radio stations that broadcast classic rock and hip hop/rap. My favorites are Tame Impala, the Arctic Monkeys, Fleetwood Mac, and the Cranberries. I have so much fun dancing to disco too! It feels as though my music taste expands every year and the exploration of good music won't ever cease. Always open to receiving playlists that have a theme (and a title).

Collections

There are a couple of things that I collect:

candles (floral, earthy (pine, tea tree!), fresh laundry)

pins & patches

Furbies (and other niche 90s memorabilia)

Kewpies merch

vintage Campbell's Kids merch

Smiski & Sonny Angel figurines

vintage psychology & philosophy books

Favorite Television

I am definitely more of a tv watcher than a film enthusiast (though I'm working on the latter). It would be too much trouble to type up an exhausted list of all that I have watched, so genres should suffice! TV shows typically check off at least one of these categories: crime drama, fantasy, comedy, and/or romance. If I had to pick one favorite tv show, it would be The Magicians. When it comes to movies, I actually watch a lot of horror (though I don't want any sentiment of that for incoming swaps). Next up would be thriller/action. I am open to recommendations for very niche films that leave me questioning what I just watched, or even question things in the real world...

update: I just subscribed to Shudder so if anyone has any recommendations please send them my way (even films that aren't provided via that service). I care more for supernatural and psychological thrillers (not so into gore and zombies).

Dislikes

Even though I love nature, I would prefer to not get real leaves/petals/flowers nor feathers in the mail (seed packets are OK). I am very particular about what I consider "cute" so it might be best to stay away from choosing goodies that might be considered that (unless it's what I explicitly mentioned (see "Collections")). I also have no use for erasers. I think a lot of people don't like these, but I also don't like reward, kiddie, or alphabet stickers. I would also prefer mail to not be scented, especially by smoke (unfortunately, I will just throw it out). I love candles, but I don't like the overtly sweet smells like cinnamon rolls or hot chocolate. Please keep these in mind. Thank you!

Response: Hi. I'm sorry you haven't gotten this yet. I messaged you some time ago that it was sent back to me after months due to the address and that I will (and already did) resend it. I will just send you a completely new one since that one still hasn't gotten to you. I hope you will reconsider your rating once it gets to you.
