About Me

Hola, my name's Jessie! I enjoy movies, music, painting, and random crafting projects, and I'm look forward to the new art I find through this to admire and inspire me.

I'm somewhere around 30 years old. I have 2 of the sweetest chihuahuas you'd ever meet, Loki and Dexter. They are my children, but my cat, Judas is my familiar! He follows me around everywhere and we just get each other. Update: A new polydactyl kitten has been added to the family named Toby, and he has the biggest purr and so much spunk already! I'm an INFP, Aquarius, Ravenclaw, 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 movies, music, shows, and stories, 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 other of my 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.


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 appreciate the same!

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.

Favorite Movies

  • I Heart Huckabees is my favorite movie. I love existential movies/conversations, especially when combined with humor. Life is absurd, and many times terrifying, and I don't think I'd survive it if I couldn't laugh about it.
  • Pretty much any pop culture movie, except I only keep up about halfway on super hero movies. Not a big fan of action.
  • Horror movies, especially the old 80's/90's ones

TV shows

Too many to count, but I will note I'm a big fan of cartoons geared toward adults, like Venture Brothers (and pretty much anything adultswim), Gravity Falls, Midnight Gospel, and of course Adventure Time and anime.

Adventure Time


  • Favorite colors: Any shade of red or teal, especially dark, saturated shades

  • Adventure Time - I love ALLL the characters, but my absolute favorites are Marceline and Bubblegum

  • Alphonse Mucha
  • Animal bones
  • Animals in clothing, especially formal wear
  • Anime
  • Avocados
  • Bookmarks
  • Boston Terriers / Frenchies
  • Cats
  • Circular punchies - if you can do unique 1" ones (for bottle cap magnets)
  • Circus & flow art
  • Colorful messages
  • Cool textures
  • 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
  • Gelly Prints
  • Hearts, especially anatomical
  • Hemp or leather cord
  • Horror and creepy things
  • Hot wax stamps
  • Inappropriate humor, as long as it's not racist, homophobic, etc.
  • Kawaii
  • Krampus
  • Lace
  • Llamas
  • Lilies - tiger lilies are my favorite flower
  • Mandalas/ bohemian patterns / psychedelic
  • Mario Bros. - favorite characters are Yoshi, Birdo, Toad, Shy Guy, and Princess Peach
  • Moths, especially lunar
  • Mushrooms
  • Music
  • anything Nautical!!! Especially mermaids, piratey things, narwhals, & creatures with tentacles
  • Occult
  • Opossums
  • Organic beads/ charms (glass, stone, wood, etc)
  • Otters
  • Painting - acrylic & watercolor
  • Phantasmagoria, like Alice in Wonderland
  • Pinups
  • Postcards
  • Quirky / odd
  • Raccoons
  • Recycled book pages or fabric
  • Risque
  • Shabby chic
  • Snails
  • Space
  • Spiders
  • Stamps
  • Stencils
  • Steampunk/ dystopian
  • Succulents, but not spiky cacti
  • Sushi
  • Teapots/ Tea - art or the real thing. My favorites are black tea and fruity/ginger, but I'll try anything
  • Unicorns
  • 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, pixies & druids 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!


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.
  • Religion, unless it's satirical
  • Kid stuff
  • Trypophobia triggers. Fractals are an exception; even though they still trigger it a little, I love them a lot.
  • Disney, Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, etc.
  • Modern art
  • Southwest tribal style
  • Country living
  • Scented stuff - I'm picky
  • (For Type 3 handmade swaps) Sticker slapping. I love stickers, but that's not considered original art in my opinion. You don't have to be a savant for me to appreciate your hand-made art. As long as you put in the effort. :)
  • When I'm not rated after I put my effort and time into a swap. Please don't be that person. And absolutely feel free to message me if I haven't rated you in a timely manner. That pretty much always means I didn't receive it, and you get extra props if you're pro-active about checking on that.


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. I like adult-friendly cartoons only.

Not a fan of scenery / landscape postcards. I'd much prefer the weirdest PC you've got!


I currently have tons of Alice in Wonderland, Adventure Time, and over-sized Star Wars PCs. Feel free to message me a request if I am sending to you for a swap, or if you want to do a private swap for one (or a handful). I love receiving hearts, and will always do my best to please!

Comment: Wow wow wow! Jessie! This swap is incredible! I love everything from the envelope to each item inside, as well as the lovely note! You are so generous and creative! Thanks so much for this perfect swap! I would love to keep in touch and will contact you about private swaps and penpalling. Thanks again and take care!
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I bought some downloadable ephemera sets from Etsy, one of them being coffee themed. Which meant I printed and cut out most of the ephemera myself, and of course I wanted the cut-outs to look well done, so I definitely put some extra time into this one!

Comment: Hello! Thank you for the postcard! I think Arizona would be perfect for keeping succulents. I have trouble keeping succulents alive here in Indonesia, since the climate here is so humid.
Response: I'm glad it made it safe, albeit almost 3 month's time! I love succulents. I've tried growing them a few times, but I can never seem to keep them alive... I have a terrible green thumb, but I'm working on it. Maybe I was watering mine too often! Thanks for the rating!

Comment: LOVED the book postcard! TY so much! Funny story - my dog LOVES when I play the flute but does not care for guitar. Could be because I'm just learning the latter, but I really think the flute would annoy him!
Response: Haha that's great! My childhood dog would howl along when I played flute... could never tell if he hated it or he liked to sing along!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely cards. They made my day! Also, the envelope you sent to me was beautiful. Take care and keep on swapping. <3 and V!
Response: So happy you enjoyed! <3
Comment: Thanks for the card. For my pictures now I use imjur.com We will be in Arizona in 5 days. Seeing Alice Cooper's Christmas Pudding and Trans Siberian Orchestra. Hoping to get to Alice's new Solid Rock there in MESA!
Response: Thanks for the info about your pictures! And that's awesome. My work recently did a raffle for Trans Siberian Orchestra tickets! But I didn't win them sadly
jannieb rated for USATC: Coffee or Tea? ATC on Nov 27, 2021
Comment: Thanks for joining my swap. I love your ATC & the fact that you sent it in a real tea bag is awesome :) I like Coffee & Tea. My favorite tea is Celestials Seasonings Sleepytime tea. I make in my Keurig. I also love the Russian tea you make with instant tea & Tang. Thanks again & take care :)
Comment: Thankyou for the nice swap. ☺️I really liked how you decorated the envelope.
Comment: What a fun package! Thank you for the ornament and other goodies. That's funny about your dog!
