I'm a married 30-something geek, adventurer, artist, writer, cat whisperer, photographer, wine drinker, bookworm, concert goer, blogger, bass player, gamer, sci-fi fangirl with strong goth tendencies.
I'm an artist, and love trying new things - so paper, magazine cutouts, embelishments, washi tapes, cute paperclips, stickers, stamps, pens, markers, watercolors and other art supplies are my favorite things to receive. I also love to swap art with other artists!
I don't really have a favorite color - I love color! Especially unusual, super creative uses of color. I do find myself leaning toward black, purple and aqua most often though.
I love travel! I've been to 18 countries so far - and 32 US States - which is barely a start to seeing the world - but I've learned and grown so much from my travels. I hope to see lots more.
Fantasy and science fiction for the most part, but I like a good bio sometimes too, especially about artists or musicians. Admittedly totally smitten with some of the fandom book series - Sarah J Maas, Cassandra Clare, etc. And I'm not even sorry. I also like Brandon Sanderson, Maria Snyder, Marie Lu, Neil Gaiman, Jim Butcher, Orson Scott Card, Isaac Asimov, Arthur C Clarke, and loads more.
There's a link to my goodreads profile up there under the "My Links" link. Feel free to add me as a friend! :)
Music is one of my favorite things about life. Especially live music. 80's new/darkwave, goth, edm, singer/songwriter, metal... I can nearly always find something I like in any genre.
Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, Doctor Who, Firefly, Supernatural, Buffy the Vampire Slayer... Recently obsessed with The Orville, as well. My husband and I have cosplayed Doctor Who, Star Trek and Marvel characters at multiple conventions and it's something we really love.
Chalk board design, surreal design, cats, (love all the kitties!) henna/zentangle, flowers, bats, old photos, vintage books, book illustrations - esp botanical or anatomical, letterpress, bookmarks, vintage robots, enamel pins, the paranormal, buddhism, and pretty much anything you would call "gothic" or "witchy." I also love essential oils and natural body products/makeup.
I'm pretty easy to please. And I rate 5's as long as the items I receive meet swap requirements, arrive on time, (or swapper has communicated if late) and look like at least a little effort was put in. That said, I'm not a fan of clowns, religious themed items, anything political or hateful, pages torn from notepads, food items (tea/coffee is ok!) or children's items.
If you didn't receive a swap from me, please let me know and give me the chance to re-send. I always mail on the day I mark as sent, so if you don't receive it, it's gotten lost and I'm happy to try again. :)
