About Me

19 April 2021

Hi y'all!

I am Fox, a 32 year old nonbinary crafter, and my pronouns are they/them. I have recently been getting back into crafting after a long break due to moving around and starting a new job. Now I have my own place and I want to get back in to it.

Apart from crafting I love to write, spend time in nature, play computer games or just relax with a good cup of tea and a TV series. For a living I work in the tech industry, and I have some innate desire to figure out "how things work".


Favorite Crafts

I usually do paper crafting in my SMASH book, or I will make some birthday cards for my family. During this time of getting back in to crafting I found Happy Mail videos on YouTube, and after watching a lot of them I realised how fun it would be to take part and exchange happy mail with other people. And that is how I found Swap Bot.

I would love to get more in to this kind of crafting, and the idea of exchanging supplies makes me so happy. I have made some flipbooks and other pocket-like crafts that could be filled with goodies and I truly enjoyed making these projects, and I would love to find receivers and keep making these.

I am currently trying not to buy new stuff for crafting unless it is from my local thrift store, and getting a variety of supplies by exchanging feels like a more sustainable way for me to continue with this hobby.

Plus, who doesn't like to send and receive snail mail?


The Things I Like

These are some of the things I truly enjoy:

  • Green - my favourite colour
  • Lemons and other citrus fruits, as a tea flavour, and aesthetically I especially love the contrast between the green leaves and the yellow lemon
  • Orange - my second favourite colour
  • Nature themed ephemera, especially leaves, trees, mushrooms, fruits/berries and woodland creatures
  • Washi samples
  • Homemade ephemera - if you make your own tags, labels, journaling cards or anything else I would be a happy receiver!
  • Wax seals
  • Purple - my third favourite colour
  • Black and green tea
  • Anything technical themed would be fun, especially if it is vintage or vintage inspired, like die cuts of old phones or stickers with electrical components
  • Nature activity themed papers, stickers or die cuts, depicting things like hikers, tents, fishing rods etc.
  • Space! Stars, planets, constellations, etc. And scifi inspired things as long as it is not childish. Anything from Mass Effect would make me the happiest person!
  • Printed paper and card-stock
  • Printed paper scraps, no tiny pieces please, but if it is at least 5x5 cm (2x2 inches) I can probably find some use for it

Dislikes

These are some things that I do not like very much:

  • Ginger, especially in drinks so no ginger flavoured tea please
  • Coriander, though I'm not sure what you could send that contains coriander
  • Walnuts, I am allergic so please don't send me anything that contains walnuts. Other nuts are fine.
  • Rooibos tea
  • Too much pink, I can enjoy some, but things that are very pink will not be used
  • Fashion themed ephemera, I don't have any interest in fashion
  • Religious symbols, such as crosses, bible verses and other religious imagery.

About Swaps

I'm a newbie and I'm still learning the ropes here. Some terms are new to me, but I will ask if I'm unsure about something so please bear with me.

I will send out to you. If you don't receive anything from me, please contact me!

Comment: I love how you interpreted this prompt, and how you chose to do your spread and incorporate the walking track near your house. I think you did an awesome job, and I LOVE the cute fence and animals, and the frisbee golf vicinity. I love frisbee golf, although I only played like two times ....We don’t have a lot of parks or places in Lancaster, PA. Lastly I love how you shared a little history about Vikings! Awesome job ❤️thanks so much for sharing
Response: Thank you so much for your nice comment and rating! I really do enjoy having the frisbee golf so close, but I don't use it as much as I should!

Comment: Sorry for the late rating! I couldn't figure out who this post card was from! Don't forget to mark your swap bot name and the swap name on your swaps! :) some people rate down for that, but I am new too so I totally understand! Thank you for the lovely card, I love the elephant!
Response: Thank you for your rating, and I'm so sorry it was unclear who it was from! I should have marked it better. :)

Comment: I love your spread! I was born the same year you were, and I actually did a spread similar to yours..I guess maybe Leo’s think alike lol. I like how you included examples and showed some important things that were happening that year as well as some popular songs etc!!!!!! What an awesome year to be born .. Also, I like your collaging and you did a great job with your choice of colors and blending them together to look nice on your page! Thanks for sharing 👍
Response: Thank you! We were born in a very great year! :D
