About Me

Free Cat Hair With Every Swap!

I do market research professionally, and Swap-Bot is a great creative outlet for me! I love to make ATCs, gelli print, and do decos when I have the time, and try all kinds of new crafts. I am vegetarian and a huge nerd. I have two kitties who are my babies.

mah kittehs

PM me if you want to do a private swap, need a new (sometimes slow AF) penpal, or want excess decos (I usually have some).

My current top wishlist item is Littlest Pet Shop toys or related items like doll accessories or small props. My latest craft obsession is modifying, painting, and photographing LPS customs. I'd be thrilled to trade for LPS toys or random small items to use in my pictures. If you happen have this type of thing you don't want, DM me for a private swap! :D

Swap Philosophy

I always try to go above and beyond in my swaps and aim for hearts. If you feel that I don't deserve a heart, I would genuinely like to know why. Even if it's negative feedback I want to improve my art and swapping. It drives me crazy to do what I think is a really nice job and feel like I've disappointed my partner!

I normally read profiles carefully and tailor swaps to my swap partners' preferences to the extent possible. I don't generally join swaps with tight deadlines, because I hate feeling rushed and I like doing art when I'm really in the mood for it. So I will try and do a nice job on your swap, and base it on your profile if I can, but it won't usually be sitting there all generically waiting to mail as soon as partners are assigned. Please let me know if something doesn't arrive. I will resend lost or missing swaps.

I don't think anyone should host swaps they aren't willing to angel themselves. If hosts are expected to cover for flakers, they will do a better job screening them out. I hate to see situations where hosts ask for angels (or worse, the individual flaked on has to ask themselves) when it's the host's poor screening that caused the problem. I cringe every times I see a swap host saying they won't angel. Don't host if you won't angel! I will ALWAYS angel my hosted swaps. With that in mind, I am picky about screening people for my hosted swaps. I am usually willing to do private swaps with riskier people, but don't want to assume that risk for others in my swaps. I appreciate being notified if you see questionable swappers in my hosted swaps, but rest assured I will carefully look at all participants and ban anyone I find too risky, normally immediately before assigning partners.

Regarding Deco Books

I actually prefer homer/last page decos to keep my pile manageable, unless it's contrary to swap requirements.

I like small and thin decos over big bulky ones - don't we all? I dislike thick embellishments that make it much costlier to mail and make it harder for everyone else's pages to lie flat. My preference is for smallish flatish ones that can be mailed in normal envelopes without too much postage.

I've been getting a lot of decos recently in which I've already done a page. This is generally against deco swap guidelines, and is contrary to the point of deco books. Decos should have each page done by a different person, and sending them back and forth between the same people is a waste of postage! PLEASE check your decos and make sure the recipient hasn't done a page in them yet before sending!

I'd prefer not to receive decos that aren't in some kind of book form. Loose pages are a nice idea, but to me that's not really the same as a deco book. Plus it's difficult or impossible to determine who has already had it when "pages" go missing.

I often have excess decos to swap. Please send me a PM with your address if you are interested.

I'm happy to try and answer questions if you are new to decos (or swapping generally). I've been here a while and can usually help with basic protocol questions!

Themes I like

Anything hand drawn
Arizona themed
Data / Graphs / Spreadsheets
Dr. Pepper
House/home theme
Littlest Pet Shop
Magic: the Gathering
Monograms/my initials (E.W.)
Penis drawings (they crack me up, it's "accidentally" become a collection). No peen photographs though please!
Pokemon (esp. Blissey/Chancey/Happiny)

If it's a pretty, well done ATC, PC, or deco I will probably love it no matter what the subject matter is. I am difficult to offend unless its related to animal cruelty or some kind of discrimination. That shit's not funny. I am generally amused by adult/sexual/nudity/swear word type themes. Particularly wieners. XD


Comment: Gave the song a listen and ended up adding it to my liked songs on Spotify. I hope you have an awesome wedding!! Thanks for organizing this swap!

Comment: At long last. I started thinking that the South African Postal Service didn't want to send me my mail. Luckily it arrived :)

Thanks for the Deco Books Tag! I learned something new about the animal world. I've seen photos of this unusual salamander. I did some reading found out how unique these creatures are. I'll see what I come up with for this interesting theme.
