Mail service is wack, I won't worry or inquire about swaps until 6 weeks in.

Short attention span summery:

  • I love colorful, gilded, grungy, fun, quirky, weird, odd, and unique things especially when made by you. I'm not picky or easily offended at all so feel free to share what you are passionate about or trying for the first time. I do prefer things that don't shed glitter and are flat.
  • Please no extras at this time.
  • very specific wish: Friday the 13th postmarked postcards of Jason. I've received my first 3 this year! Next one is September 2024.

Very long version:

  • I strive to make you laugh, bring you joy, feel great even if just for a moment, and also tend to think outside the box. If I get it wrong or am too weird please let me know so I can fix it.
  • Scottish terrier lover and pet rescue supporter. No pets of my own currently and love to receive pictures, doodles, or stories about yours.

-I'm a terrible pen pal but love to read your letters and lists. Always check out what you recommend even if I don't really respond the "right" way.


  • Address labels: clear, plain, tiny, or regular with designs, with my email, swapbot name, or address. Mail art, postcards(handmade ok), labels, postage(real or faux), vintage postalettes, unique stamped images, and washi samples (preferably patterns, tie dyed, or watercolors, not characters) super sticker slapped envelopes covered in all those unloved ones.
  • Anything handmade or decorated by you. Atc, pocket letter, inchies, flip books, stuffies, pins, really anything.
  • Lists, jokes, poems, haiku, limericks.
  • Healthy instapot and slow cooker recipes.
  • Vintage stationery 1960s - 80s. Current brand is my favorite.
  • Bright colors. Black and White.
  • recycled and partially used items are always welcomed. I wonder how other people feel about this. I find it annoying that a lot of sticker sheets are too big for an envelope so I cut them in half and send them that way unless it specifically says on your profile not to do that.

Anything with an animal or nature 💜:

  • Scottish Terriers.
  • Rescued pets and their stories.
  • Mega fauna - e.g. Woolly Mammoth, Saber tooth tigers, giant sloths.
  • Donkeys, goats, and pigs.
  • Fish and other sea life, horseshoe crabs.
  • Woodland creatures real or imagined.
  • Put a bird on it: Flamingos, barn swallows, woodpeckers, crows, turkeys, birds of prey. I believe birds are meant to be free and not in cages. I'm not opposed to people rescuing birds that cannot be released back into the wild though. Tell me about your backyard birds. I work with amazing people who are true bird watchers, great photographers, and learn something new everyday. Recently have piliated woodpeckers visiting the feeders!
  • Ferns, oak trees, poppies, hydrangeas, pines, cherry blossoms, native plants, moss, and mushrooms.
  • The only animal thing I don't like are real monkeys and chimpanzees when dressed in clothes, they creep me out. Go figure that the flying monkeys from oz are my favorite though??? Maybe because they're fake? It's the trained circus animals that creep me out. Just no.


  • Halloween year round. Love vintage costumes (Ben Cooper!) and photos. Classic Universal monsters and Horror movies. Witch Hazel and Gossimer. Hitchcock. Vincent Price. Cute is awesome but prefer scary, not necessarily gory unless it's Edward Gorey, grungy, or gothic style overall.
  • Silly or dark humor.
  • Oddities and Imperfections.
  • Pop culture, esp 70s and 80s. Mod, Groovy, and totally awesome 80s esthetics.
  • Cults, I'm both fascinated and horrified that people get sucked into them.
  • Terrible translations- Happy outside sun trailer.

Artsy fartsy:

  • Abstract interpretation.
  • Local art
  • Outsider arts and crafts.
  • Bright bold colorful florals.
  • Art deco and nouveau.
  • Modern, surreal, and weird art, turn me on to an artist you love.
  • Illustration- vintage children's books, ads, propaganda, industrial workers
  • Vintage Hawaiiana
  • Mid century architecture and furniture.
  • Industrial, steampunk, time travel, space, and scientific themes
  • I'm not religious, but I still love the art, icons, and shrines.

write about:.

  • Triumphs and struggles.
  • Regional culture, artists, dialect, ghost stories, treats, and recipes.
  • Kindness you've received or given.
  • Family history and origin. Stories about eccentric relatives.
  • Favorite songs and concerts.
  • Favorite or hilarious childhood and teenage memories.
  • Adventures and travels. I'm one of those people that wants to see your photos and hear every detail, so go for it.
  • What you do for money and what you wish you could do.

Fictional characters and tv shows.

  • OZ.
  • The Muppets.
  • Bojack Horseman.
  • Richard Scary
  • Raggedy Ann
  • ME-Henry💙💙💙
  • Tina Belcher.
  • Grover and Oscar.
  • Parks and Recreation Jean Ralphio because he's the wooorst!

  • The Office, both versions.

  • Spock and Picard.
  • Batman 60s series
  • 60s -70s cartoons.
  • unexpected anthropomorphic "things"
  • R.O.U.S.
  • Portlandia. I think I've worked with every character on this show over the years.
  • I'm in love with Matt Berry and What we do in the shadows brings me immeasurable joy.
  • Svengoolie
  • Bozo the clown.

Food and travel.

  • illustrations of food, esp breads and pastry.
  • Austria, Chicago, Puerto Rico, Mexico, US national parks, and Canada.
  • Mountains, forests, and beaches.
  • Places I most want to visit: Montana, Alaska, England, Scotland, Japan.

NOT crazy about-

  • jewelry or makeup, I have allergies.
  • coconut. chai, and zinger tea
  • plastic which I understand is impossible to avoid, but I try to recycle and reuse.
  • non communicators, silent, and non raters
  • shedding glitter, statements on how to live life, victorian vintage(except snarky and kitch)and girly girl stuff-the exception is Valentine's day, go nuts!
  • scented items: There are scents I love and many I can't handle, ask before sending please. I do love scratch and sniff though.
  • Please for the love of all things good and holy do not send Satan's bile aka mustard.
  • 3D stickers, paper pieces, and bits, I have tons.
  • It confuses me when people join a themed swap and then their profile specifically states they don't like it. It's also frustrating when someone has extremely specific likes or long personal stories and not much else to go on. I won't join swaps that don't have very clear instructions and expectations because I take things literally and don't want to disappoint anyone.

Favorite Movies

These whimsical, visually stunning, and goofy ones

  • Sunset Boulevard
  • Freaks
  • Metropolis
  • Hugo
  • Coraline
  • The Birds.
  • The Princess bride.
  • The Wizard of OZ.
  • Return to OZ.
  • Pee Wee's Big Adventure

Wes Anderson films and aesthetic!!!!

You'll have my love forever if you send something (even abstractly) related to any of his movies.

Favorite Books

Always reading something and it varies greatly, could be science fiction, fantasy, or historical fiction. auto biography of Comedians, ted talks(don't know where to put these), self improvement even though I've never managed to actually improve myself for long, or old childrens science textbooks.
-The fifteen lives of Harry August by Claire North.
-The Borgias have been fascinating me lately, it's amazing that we have the details of these people's lives that lived so long ago. I get exhausted just thinking about their daily lives.

Favorite Music

Spotify is on most of the day. Frequently Go to: 80s college and dark wave, Wilco, The Who, Monsters of folk, Jack White, and love finding new music!
Too many concerts to count and we like to go see and support local bands whenever we can, as long as it's not too late, lol. I'd love to hear about concerts you've been to, songs you love, and why you love them.

Favorite Crafts

Anything handmade by you is greatly loved and appreciated, no matter your skill level.


I prefer smaller, flat, and without chunky embellishments please. Inappropriate and weird are fun send them to me!

I enjoy making papercrafts: collage, postcards, atcs, and mail art. I just haven't felt very crafty lately so haven't been joining those types of swaps. I do continue to buy and hoard supplies of course. So back on track somewhat and I'd say my crafting style goes to grungy no matter what I do, lol. If you hate it let me know. I'm easy going.

I really love needle felting, but working with wool makes me sneeze like crazy:(

Thanks for reading. Have a great day!

Response: Thank you, Hopefully we can get paired up again some time or get a coffee at Dainty Maid food hall to hunt for ghosts, lol. It's so nice in there now that I think they've all ran away to the State theatre down the street.

crescendo rated for Happy Swap-a-versary!! To Us! on Nov 5, 2023
Comment: I love the silly donkeys! I'm happy we could share our Anniversaries together! Hooray that your other card arrived, I love everything. That little envelope you made with the mushroom top is cool, those do look fun to make! Can't wait to do the mad lib, heh. You know I will add some obnoxious words. The mermaid with those eyes! And the cool watercolor donkey card. We should design a silly trading card deck of "inspiration" for wackyness. Love it all.
Response: Thanks Sue, it was fun!
