About Me


03/2024: I've recently changed my email address. My original is so old it's almost full, and electronic swaps were getting lost in the clutter of it. I made a new email specifically for this site.

About Me

Hey there, I'm Jessie (she/her)! I enjoy movies, music, painting, and random crafting projects, and I look forward to the new art I find through this to admire and inspire me.

I'm somewhere in my mid 30's. I have 2 of the sweetest chihuahuas you'd ever meet, Loki and Dexter. My cat, Judas is my familiar, though. He follows me around everywhere and we just get each other. I also took in a feral litter of kittens this past summer and decided to keep one, a very fluffy girl named Gizmo. I'm an INFP, Aquarius (Scorpio Rising, Pisces Moon), LGBTQIA+, and Team Valor for those of you that play Pokemon GO! (My trainer code is 5137 4991 4113 - feel free to add me).

My craft stuff will probably always be the biggest space consumer in my place, so I joined this to help put it to good use! I'm a bit quiet, but I love making new friends & discussing my favorite tv media, stories, music, and philosophy, mostly. I'm part hippy, part metal head, part witch, part nerd, & part mermaid.

I cannot stress how much I love anything nautical! Vintage gothic and psychedelic/bohemian are a couple of my other favorites when it comes to home decor, and if I like the art I get through swaps enough, I try to find a place to display it, especially in those 3 categories. Mushrooms are included in the psychedelic category, but I love all mushroom stuff, including more vintage/biology book styles of art, which is what my kitchen is decorated in. I like to antique shop.

Neurodivergent & Not Interested in Drama

After a couple really unnecessary experiences I've had with swappers on here, I feel I should let it be known that I'm on the spectrum. It definitely came across to me that these experiences were over differences in communication styles and preconceived notions of what I'm like. I don't subscribe to hierarchy, I don't think anyone's better than anyone else. I'm an open book, and what I say is exactly and ONLY what I mean - there's no hidden intent. I'm not emotionally invested in either direction toward people I don't know, and if you don't like me I'm going to receive it as a projection of your own negativity and move on with my life. Also! Any other neurodivergents with life hacks, I'm always interested in hearing them!


FYI I use a sponge pen for sealing envelopes, so water is used, not saliva.

I pledge to rate
I give hearts based on effort. Be that how much you put into your art, or, especially for postcards, whether or not you took the time to look at my profile and pick something special to my taste, or for non-profile based, at least wrote or sent me something interesting, these all fit in that category. I believe creativity isn't as much a talent as it is a skill that has to be exercised. So, that's not the only thing I pay attention to when I receive something. I'm fairly generous with hearts, but not so generous that they've entirely lost their meaning when I give them.

I mark sent when the mail is "out of my hands," as per Swapbot rules, which in most cases means my mailbox. Therefore postmark may be a day or two after that, but I do try to get them out asap, before the deadline.

I also pledge: To always send my swaps on time, or IF some crisis comes up, to message you ahead of time about it being sent late. I am NOT a flaker, so please message me if you don't receive something and are worried! I've gotten to a point now where I send most stuff off well before the deadline. I have, however, lost much faith in the US Postal system - It makes me understanding of others' lost swaps, as long as they do me the same courtesy I would do them, by messaging before the deadline about sending a late swap, keeping in close contact, and re-sending when necessary.


I've been getting into Deco Books lately, so just putting a little note on here that homers are always welcome! I love sending home a finished product, especially when it takes so long to get passed around. Just please make sure it's one I haven't created or already done a page in. When sending one of my own decos back to me (completed), please make sure to put your swap-bot name or at least enough info for me to contact you in the envie too, so I can say or give you a thank you of some kind! Thanks :)

TV shows

Too many to count, but I will note I'm a big fan of animation geared toward adults, as in the humor or content is commonly appreciated by adults, even if it's kid-friendly too. Examples include Venture Brothers (and pretty much anything adultswim), Gravity Falls, Over the Garden Wall, Bee and Puppycat, Steven Universe, Midnight Gospel, Castlevania, Rick & Morty, Harley Quinn (HBO series), Studio Ghibli, anime, and of course Adventure Time.

Adventure Time


I know it's a long list - I like to give plenty of options in case people are working with limited supply. All caps are most liked.

  • Favorite colors: Any shade of red or teal, especially dark, saturated shades. I also particularly like bright/neon colors and holographic/iridescent. Lately I've been really taking to orange.

  • ADVENTURE TIME - I love ALLL the characters, but my absolute favorites are Marceline and Bubblegum, who I have tattooed on me, along with Catbug and Puppycat. If you know where either of those come from I will adore you haha

Adventure Time tattoo
* Alan Watts & Terence McKenna (quotes would be lovely)
* Alphonse Mucha/ ART NOUVEAU
* ANIMAL BONES - the real thing or anything depicting them
* Animals in clothing, especially formal wear
* Anime
* Avocados
* Homemade bookmarks
* Bananas
* Boston Terriers / Frenchies
* Brads
* Circular punchies, but only if you can do unique 1" ones (for bottle cap magnets)
* CIRCUS & flow art. I do NOT condone animals in the circus, though.
* Colorful messages
* Coffee or tea stained paper!
* COTTAGECORE/ haunted cottagecore
* Deadly or otherwise odd or rare plants
* Dinosaurs & dinosaur birds (ostriches, emus, magpies, geese, flamingos)
* Embossed images, cards, etc.
* Embellishments
* Envelopes. Bought & made are both great, as long as they're not plain!
* Ferrets/ weasels
* Any FOLKLORE, mythical, or cryptid creature
* Garfield
* Ghosts
* Hearts, especially anatomical
* Hemp or leather cord
* Hindu art. I find the colors, patterns, & depictions of deities absolutely beautiful and touching.
* HORROR and creepy things
* Hot wax stamps
* INAPPROPRIATE HUMOR, as long as it's not racist, homophobic, etc.
* Kawaii sticker sheets, postcards, or envelopes
* Krampus
* Lace
* Llamas
* Lilies - tiger lilies are my favorite flower
* Mandalas/ bohemian patterns / PSYCHEDELIC
* MOTHS, especially lunar
* Music
* NAUTICAL! Especially mermaids, piratey things, narwhals, & creatures with tentacles
* Nudity is fine by me, as long as it's not an inappropriate selfie. :P
* Organic beads/ charms (glass, stone, wood, etc)
* Painting - acrylic & watercolor
* PHANTASMAGORIA, like Alice in Wonderland & Willy Wonka (older versions are preferred)
* Pinups
* Postcards
* Rainbow Brite!
* Recycled book pages or fabric
* Risque
* SEEDS (beginner gardener here)
* Shabby chic
* Spiders
* Squishies are my favorite sensory thing! I know it's probably not relevant here, but on the same train of thought, I like soft puffy stickers for sensory reasons too
* Stamps
* Stencils
* Steampunk/ dystopian
* Succulents, but not spiky cacti
* Sushi
* Tardigrades
* Tattoo style art, stickers, whatever
* Teapots/ Tea - art or the real thing. My favorites are thai tea, black tea and fruity/ginger, but I'll try anything
* Textures
* VINTAGE/ retro, especially antique portraits (1920's or before), or "ghost" photos, as I've sometimes seen them labeled
* Washi tape
* Witchcraft
* Woodland creatures (Foxes, birds/ owls, deer, worms, & forest folklore creatures especially)
* Zazzle
* Zodiacs


  • ATC Note:

    I'm on the hunt for some quality coffee ATC's at the moment for a home decor project I have in mind.

  • Ornaments

    Since I join homemade ornament swaps some years, my tree is now Krampus themed, so even if Krampus is too challenging, I would love ornaments in the red/black/vintage scheme of colors to add to it! Other creepy or occult ornaments also go on my tree.


In General

  • Not a big fan of YELLOW but it's not going to bug me unless there's an obnoxious amount on whatever I receive.
  • CHRISTIANITY, unless it's satirical, depicting an ophanim (spinning wheel eyeball covered monstrosity), or devil/demon related.
  • KID STUFF, reward or planner stickers, etc.
  • TRYPOPHOBIA triggers. Fractals are an exception; even though they still trigger it a little, I love them a lot.
  • DISNEY, Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry
  • SOUTHWEST style
  • COUNTRY LIVING, patriotic, "live, laugh, love", etc.
  • SCENTED stuff - I'm picky
  • COLORING papers or postcards. I have so many now and not enough patience for them!


I really don't like anything generic, especially touristy! Even if it's vintage. Please save those for someone who will appreciate it.

PLEASE no Disney, Looney Tunes, or otherwise kiddy cards. I've never been a fan, and don't have any kids to share it with. It can be assumed I only like the cartoons listed in "TV shows", unless you've watched enough of those examples to get my vibe.

Not a fan of scenery / landscape postcards. I'd much prefer the weirdest PC you've got! Also any of my above likes are just as welcome on a postcard, especially antique portraits :D

Favorite Music

My top genres are indie, folk/bluegrass, punk, electronica/EDM, rap, and metal (except 80's hair metal). I also take to a fair amount of 80's songs and oldies. I like just about anything except radio pop and pop country. The stuff I listen to most is rarely on the radio. I use Spotify a lot.
Some of my current favorite bands: Aesop Rock, Buku, Caravan Palace, Clams Casino, Dan Deacon, Days N Daze, Eyedea, Flying Lotus, Glass Animals, Harley Poe, King Lazy Eye, Lorn, Poor Man's Poison, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Ratatat, Rone, Samsa, Snails, Tally Hall, Tipper, & Um...

Comment: Great stickers on the envie; thanks for the nice assortment of pc's - I believe I gave you that one of the reptile skeleton (the Royal Tyrrell Museum is famous in Alberta); I'm not complaining - I always liked this one :)
Response: Ah no! I'm always scared I'll do that, I have hundreds of PCs so hard to keep track :( Need to start writing names when they're gifted!
Comment: I loved Princess and the Goblin as a young kid- I haven't seen it in ages either! I can't recommend The Last Unicorn enough! Both the book and the animated film!
Comment: Thank you so much for the cute skeleton postcard! I love it! And that pumpkin cheesecake sounds AMAZING! :) Happy Early Halloween!
Comment: thank you for the fun postcard!
Comment: Lots of terrific green ephemera! I especially like the postcards and that lovely, intricate mask diecut! Many thanks.

colleenbUSA rated for GEEK of the Week PC Swap #220 on Jul 7, 2024
Comment: I've never seen that movie but it sounds sad! Thank you for the pc & for joining the swap!
Comment: Thanks for the atc and goodies. I enjoyed this theme. Even I can do a watercolor splotch!!! He was fun to make. Thanks for hosting.
Comment: Thank you for the fun PC. I think there are so many because there were so few paid options for women at the time, and it was before "going viral" so pretty anonymous (especially with particular poses). As a former portrait photographer I LOVE this one!
Response: Those are good points! Glad you like it as much as I did. :)

Comment: You're right, I do love the card. And I like that it's a bit of a mystery too. Hope you stay cool this scorching summer. Thanks so much!

Thank you for the pretty African Daisies postcard! It brightened my day, and I may have an opportunity to repurpose it in a daisies-themed deco I just received. But I will enjoy it on display for a few days, first!

Hello Jessie. I received the WTA postcards today. They are great! Perfect, really. It would be so exciting to see Niagara Falls on board the Maid of the Mist. What an experience that would be! Also love the Other two postcards as well. Hugs!
