Hi. I'm J (Yep, one letter. it is my legal name)
Wyrdfae was the name of my creative blog on LiveJournal (remember LJ?). I wanted some kind of "fae". I picked "wyrd" because it is both a Shakespeare reference and a Dune reference - both alluding to the magic and spirituality which is something I find in creating. It's cheesy and I'm ok with that.
Rating - I always rate unless there was an issue. If I don't get a rating for something I will follow up. I really want my swaps to get where they need to go.
I listen to audio books and podcasts while crafting, art-ing, chore-doing. I have been known to pick up a paper book from time to time, though.

Please no food, no religious, and absolutely no scented items.. Also, do not send me licensed Harry Potter merchandise or anything JKR made money off of. Harry Potter fans are wonderful, but JKR is racist and transphobic.
Here is a list of stuff I like a lot.
items I would like: Handmade stuff , zines, curios/curiosities, inchies, atcs, origami paper strips for lucky stars, small hand made things, blank notecards/artsy non-touristy postcards in moderation natural fiber yarn about 6 yards long so I can maybe use it for a striped scarf, other stationary and memo pages, random stuff in themes I like or you think I might like are also fun.
random things I like in no comprehensible order: Sci-fi, Art, peacocks, blue (esp peacock blue and electric blue) halloween, fantasy, space, Pop Surrealism, poetry, Kay Ryan, bright colors, contemporary art, sentimental circus, Dr. Who, Buffy, Frida Kahlo, Chiho Aoshima, paisley, orchids, Peacocks, celestial, more bright colors, studio Ghibli, Alison Bechdel, tarot cards, Xena, Rainbow Brite, Remedios Varo, invader Zim, rainbows, stars, Warhol, NPR, zentangle and other bold decorative black and white designs, any interesting color combo really, bird, butterfly and cat motifs, celtic knots/book of kells/nordic art, musicals, beer and wine, and other stuff.
I have yet to find kawaii anything that is too scary. Does that sound like a challenge? Bring it on!
Artist Trading Cards/inchies/mailart - while this is subjective, I prefer ATCs and such that are meaningful to you rather than just fit my themes. I like my themes - just want to see your take on the world. Art is about expressing YOU :) I make ATCs a variety of ways. Some hand drawn or painted, some mixed media collage, and I know my way around photoshop. None of them are very conventional. Totally up for one-on-one swaps if my description sounds interesting.
I'm not offended by much but I don't like mean things, which is a succinct way of saying black lives matter and sexism, racism, transphobia, and homophobia will not be tolerated here. The word "g*psy" bums me out. If you send me recipes I prefer to cook vegan at home except for honey and eggs. I'm not huge on religious stuff or receiving food/drink/tea items unless you know me pretty well.
My favorite artists are Neko Case and Janelle Monae. Also: Tacocat, AhMerAhSu, John-Allison Weiss, Mal Blum, LP, Against Me!, Rae Spoon, Dorian Electra, Rilo Kiley, Worriers, etc
I will use this space to list the things I am most obsessed with currently, which are as follows:
Mail art collaborations like jams or exquisite corpse and apparently friendship books and decos.
inchies or other framable art works especially if hand-drawn/painted and esp if 4/6 or 5x7.
Poker/standard size playing cards with interesting backs or fronts
Join this group I need a co-owner or 2....
So I do want to mention that I send when I say I do and rate when I receive. I always put on enough or more postage to my understanding of the regulations. Different po employees sometimes see them differently. If you receive something w postage due, let me know and I will send you stamps.
