If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me. Personal questions or swap related.

Hello, my name is Rook!

I am blind, autistic, and live and work in Hollywood. I also just started an Etsy shop (link above). I am married (9/13) and we have a very spoiled chihuahua named Lu (short for Luna) ☦️

⭐️I recently changed my SB address to a PO Box. If you have my physical address, I can still receive mail there. I only check my box about 2 times a week, because it is a long walk. So, please be patient with me. I will rate as soon as I have your items physically in my hand.⭐️

I am Blind 👨🏻‍🦯

I was diagnosed legally blind in August of 2022. I have a condition called RP (retinitis pigmentosa). It is all very new to me. I am working on becoming more independent. I am not looking for sympathy, I am just asking that you write bigger. I am so grateful for the swap bot community, everyone here is amazing. I just want to make it work.

**If it isn’t difficult for you it would really help me if you write bigger than normal. Using bold pens or sharpies is helpful too! I do have an app that helps me read things, if needed. I love mail with texture, embossing, 3D, bold contrasting colors. Even glitter and rhinestones is great, because things that catch light are visual to me too. Things that I can see with my fingers or thru what hazy vision I have left work best.

Please Do Not Send

🚫 Allergies: Kiwi, Walnuts (other nuts are okay), Gluten (Celiac)

🚫 Anything musty, strongly perfumed/incense or smoky smelling. It will go straight to garbage. It is overwhelming to my senses.

🚫 Paper/physical books. Kindle and Audiobooks only please.

🚫 Stickers - Unless they are fuzzy, smelly or sparkly.

Me, My Wishlist and Likes

⭐️As I said above, I am blind. Items that are tactile (fuzzy, embossed, 3D, etc) and items that catch light (glitter, rhinestones, etc) or light up, are much more appreciated than items with no texture. Also, auditory items are a plus!⭐️

Comment: Great to "meet" you-I read your profile and am glad you found swapbot-this is a good friendly community. Got your Disney Days package to-looks intriguing-sure I will like whatever you sent-I'm not hard to please-especially when it comes to Disney. Have a Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year of Swapping! Take care and stay safe! Thats interesting you live on Poinsettia Pl and you are in LA. Guess you are not having the snow we have here now-along with the cold! I love it though-that's why I choose to live in ND!

Comment: Thank you so much for the death moth drawing and the embroidered ornament. I love both of them! I can't believe that was your first go at embroidery! I've been doing embroidery since 2008 and I still can't get the hang of French knots. It looks like you already have them mastered! Also, thank you for the monkey/banana socks you sent for the group tag game. They are super cute! I really enjoy swapping with you.
