About Me

Update I was taking a break from swapping for a while during the Covid crisis, I still have some reservations, but will start swapping a bit now, just not as much still probably. Thank you for understanding.

2019 was a year of change for me! I moved into a new house, and got a new job, so I missed out on swapping for quite a while. I would love for my new mailbox to fill up with more fun mail though! And I would love to send out some of the fun things I buy and gather specifically for swapping.

I have lived in the midwest almost my whole life and been in the Saint Louis area for the most part, with a brief detour to Portland Oregon. I'd love to get out, so seeing the postcard swaps definitely interested me, seeing new a different places!

I am an animal person! At one point though my family had a bunch of animals at once including, dog, cats, fish, lizards, and mice! Right now I have a dog and 3 cats.

I love colour! Pinks, Purples, Greens, Blues, even Yellows! Also really love Kawaii and cutesy things. I get inspiration from colour and my nature and the environment.


Combining it into one

Music: Matchbox Twenty (Rob Thomas), Everclear, Motion City Soundtrack, Say Anything, Robyn, Lizzo, Janelle Monae, Childish Gambino are my tops. Others include, Meatloaf, Hanson, anything with Jack White (White Stripes, Raconteurs, Dead Weather), The Academy Is..., The Killers. Basically lots of pop/punk, r&b, and adult alternative.

Movies: I like independent films and older romantic comedies and anything with Johnny Depp or Vincent D'onofrio. Some of my top faves are, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Ghost, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, Sweeney Todd, Benny and Joon, Elizabethtown, When Harry Met Sally, You've Got Mail. But I am pretty much open to watching anything.

Books: I am a big reader, still read a lot of young adult/teen fiction. But some of the new stuff is pretty trashy so I am moving up. My favorite book of all time is a y/a novel called Rats Saw God by Rob Thomas. I adore Madeleine L'engel, and am still working on getting all her titles. I also really enjoy, Lisa Gardner, Christopher Moore, Chuck Klosterman, Cassandra Clare, Laura Ingalls Wilder, David Sedaris, and Tim Dorsey. Lots of fantasy, fiction, and weird characters. I also really like the Roger Hargreaves illustration with Mr. Men and Little Miss stuff, it is soo cute. I remember them as a kid and am glad they are making a comeback!

TV: Pen15, AHS, Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job, King of the Hill, Bojack, Gilmore Girls, Rupaul's Drag Race


Postcards: I love all types, and especially weirder ones. If you have one in your collection that you have never sent because you thought no one would like it, send it to me, naked and written on please! I will gladly add it to my collection.

Anything crafty! I do love my ceramics, but I have done lots of other things with my hands; embroidery, latch hook, painting, drawing. I am willing to learn new crafts as well.

Jewelry! I love it all, from the classy to the funky. The only thing is I don't look particularly good in gold colours. I love earrings most of all, but am trying to build up to having more necklaces, rings, and bracelets.

Pigs!! I have a totally huge pig collection and am always looking for fun interesting ones to add to it!

Pet Stuff! I love all my babies, so anything pet/animal related is totally welcome. My elderly pup Buddy unfortunately crossed the Rainbow Bridge in April 2020 after over 15 years together. I also have what I think is a Carolina Dog, but may be a big mutt named Lola. She chews constantly!! so anything to help with that is appreciated :) She really likes ropes. We prefer not to get poo bags or holders because we don't use them often as she just runs around the yard! I also have a young cat named Kiki who is kind of mean but still playful. She is entering into chonk territory and loves any treats or food. As far as toys, she is quite the clumsy beast but loves fishing toys, tunnels, and is fascinated by a ball tower. We also adopted 2 new kittens, who are still tiny little babies and love getting into mischief. Wolfie or Wolf-boy, is a long haired black poofball shadow that is kinda clumsy and a very loud talker. I am not sure if it is his clumsiness or being a scaredy cat but he is hesitant to jump up on counters and things up high. Grayby is a sweet little girl who can cuddle for hours but also likes to explore everywhere. She can get on most counters and things now even if she has to pull herself up!

Makeup! like jewelry another way I add a lot of punch to my style is through makeup. Bright shadows, glossy lips, glowing nail polish! It all works for me.

Anything inspiring! A beautiful photo, an inspirational message, anything that can help add to my art making and attitude! Also stuff that I can use to make textures on my pieces, this can literally be anything.

I also love Kawaii and Stickers and Lisa Frank! Really no specifics for Kawaii, I like it all. but if I had to pick favorites I would say Piggy Girl, Gudetama, and Rilakkuma. Animal related Kawaii are probably the best. I trade and swap stickers so any kind will do.

Socks! Any type and colour, I love fun ones. But I do not like knee socks, they don't fit on my calves so well. So ankle socks please.

Noticed that some swaps may have sweets involved. While I do eat chocolate and enjoy it, I like fruity and sour candy much more! Things like Bottlecaps, Sweet Tarts, Warheads, Airheads, Nerds, Zots, etc. are great! Also love peanut butter, caramel, and cheese lol. I am NOT allergic to anything, but hate anything with even a little bit of spice. Not much of a tea drinker either, but love some cocoa.

Flake List

Sorry that this had to be added, but it happens, so far only been flaked twice, both times by the coordinators of the swap!

Comment: Hi Deidre! I love your Route 66 pc and having a dog on it, makes it even better! Yes, the mail has been a bit slow - I try not to fussy too much as my hubby is a mailman in South County, but somedays... He even shakes his head at times!! All the Best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Glad you liked it! I actually just got that postcard book recently from a second hand store and I really enjoy all the pcs in it :)

Comment: Did not meet requirements of the swap, and she chose not to resend.
Response: Literal requirements for swap "Your ATC's are sender's choice meaning they can be any theme, and made from any art mediums. You could collage, draw, paint, sew, whatever you want, just no sticker use" I sent collaged work made from different papers including Kawaii papers and glitter and paint. Was told I used stickers when i didn't and that it made the artwork look childish. Clearly host does not mean it when they say any theme. Didn't want to spend time making something else for them to not enjoy.

Comment: Thank you so much!! I loved the bright blue envie with all the stickers (I think the ice cream cat may be my fave but it is hard to pick!) I also really love the little molang and gudetama goodies, those guys are some of my faves!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard showing Venice. It's a place that we've wanted to go for years. My husband doesn't want me to travel until the Delta variant dies down.
