About Me

Hi, I'm Kimberly. I live in gorgeous, green Oregon, USA, with five cuddly cats and my cuddly husband. Here’s the short edition of my profile: I love animals, books, art, bright colors, science, and philosophy. I love to swap postcards, kawaii, ephemera, and anything that could be used in visual journaling, ATCs, hand made post cards, etc. (December 2023: I was active here ten years ago, and now I’d like to swap again.)

I have no stash because I haven’t done anything crafty in over a decade. I will gladly give your leftovers a good home πŸŽ¨πŸ’œπŸ‘

What I Love to Swap

Kawaii! Aggretsuko! (the Sanrio raging red panda) Also Sanrio Badtz Maru, PomPomPurin and Kuromi. San-x Sumikko Garashi (Things In The Corner), especially Penguin (the green guy) and Tokage (the blue brontosaurus). Rilakkuma, especially its little yellow bird friend. Q-lia Hamu Hamu hamster. Little bird sidekicks like little chicks, ducks, parakeets, etc. Any animals swimming or bathing etc; reading or writing or drawing etc. Kawaii adjacent Pusheen, Sugar & Sloth, Vera the Mouse, House Mouse. Cute monsters! Think Cookie Monster and Where The Wild Things Are.

I LOVE interesting stamps, so I would love it if you could put some on whatever you send me. I also collect and swap used stamps.
Postcards (either naked or in an envelope; more about my postcard likes below), including handmade art postcards
stickers
stationery and sheets from memo pads
collage & paper arts supplies
yarn and ribbon (a couple yards at a time, not whole skeins/spools)
beads of all sorts

More details are below; this profile is a work in progress.

Things I Love To Receive

House Mouse and Vera the Mouse
anything vintage or retro, whether original or quality reproductions, including grundge/tattered like Tim Holtz or irreverent styles like Anne Taintor and someecards
items with medication names on them, like assorted paper goods from drug reps, or anything from drug reps for psychotropic drugs
eastern religion, especially Ganesh(a) [the Hindu elephant-headed god], anything Buddhist, Taoist, Hindu
anything Asian or Persian/Arabian (just not overtly Muslim)
curvy women, fat acceptance
anything from or representing New Zealand, San Francisco, or Chicago
science & scientists
philosophy & philosophers
intriguing quotations
anatomical brains
anatomical hearts
Cthulhu
steampunk
intrigued by Zentangles, though I haven't tried doing any yet
nudes / erotica (of any gender) are fine, as are swear words, bizarre humor and unPC stuff
rubber / acrylic stamps and ink pads. used is fine.
images stamped onto paper or cardstock
UNused US postage stamps, especially ones that match my interests
anything geeky, especially Star Wars and Star Trek
anything about Edgar Allan Poe (I'm distantly related to him)
outer space
paper punchouts (the paper, not the metal punches themselves)
spirals of any sort or on anything
triangles of any sort or on anything
anything to do with things I've mentioned that I like elsewhere in my profile.

Things I'd Rather NOT Receive

PLEASE NO SMOKE OR PERFUME! Husband has asthma and allergies. Animal violence The usual β€œno religion, no politics” thing.

Postcards I Really Like

It doesn't matter to me whether postcards are sent naked or in an envelope. If you send naked, I'd love a little note written on, about the card or about you. Like with any package, I love interesting stamps. Postcards I especially like are:

touristy viewcards
animals (see "Things I Love To Receive" for favorites)
weather like storms, lightning, fog, sunrises & sunsets, Northern Lights
flowers and plants
beautiful scenery (preferably without people) including beaches/ocean, deserts, forests, mountains, volcanoes, waterfalls, the moon, everything
historical buildings or places of interest
Eastern religions, including temples and shrines, especially pictures of or shrines to Ganesh(a)
things special to and specific about your culture, including clothing and food
things that you love
maps
reproductions of art/illustration, whether from art masters or cool cards from Etsy artists
artsy postcards that you made, including photographs and/or digital art zazzle (as long as they are good quality, not blurry or pixelated), homemade, and vintage (as long as they don't smell too smoky or musty, a lot of old ones do) are fine.
