About Me

Updated: 09/17/11

::I always rate right when I receive a swap - I am very understanding, so don't hesitate to let me know if you are going to be late, or have sent late. We all have things other than swap-bot going on, so I won't rate you poorly (just as long as it's sent) ::As I would do for you, please do for me. I have never been late on a swap, so when you do receive it (be it email, postcard or package) I would very much appreciate it if you rated me accordingly.


I'm a simple girl with a crafty mind, who works at a coffee roastery. I love going antiquing, and finding weird knick knacks. I have 4 poloroid cameras, a diana mini, and a nikon. I absolutely love snail mail and swaps - It makes everyone feel more connected. I love the beach (my initials are SEA - so I was born for it apparently) but I also love love love love the mountains, it's a beautiful landscape that is always changing and always beautiful and takes my breath away.

Favorite Music

I usually am very bad at honing in on one or two bands, but at the moment, I love Bluegrass, and Folk styled music. I am also a big fan of Sound Tribe, and Pretty Lights. And my all time favorites are Grateful Dead, James Taylor, and many many more that would take pages to write out.

Favorite Books

I really like House of Leaves, Perks of Being a Wallflower, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, A Long Strange Trip, Road to Woodstock, any Huxley book (so easy to get lost in his writings), Allen Ginsburg's poems, and many many more including the Harry Potter books.

Favorite Movies

Royal Tenenbaums, Darjeeling Limited, The Aquatic Life with Steve Zissou, All of the Harry Potter movies (my childhood started with these, and sadly has ended with these) Lord of the Rings, Avatar, Star Trek (almost all of them)

Favorite Television

Hmm, That 70s Show, Friends, Everybody Loves Raymond, Star Trek: Next Generation, Ace of Cakes, almost all of Food Network, Fresh Prince, Seinfeld, I know there is more, I just can't think of anymore right now...

Favorite Crafts

I love all crafts, really, needlecraft is my main obsession right now, I taught myself to crochet and knit recently, and would love to learn how to embroider and cross stitch - I will get there eventually.

I am starting to sew, just little things for now, but quilts, and clothes are next in line!

I love making cards, and anything paper crafts.

I also love to take pictures, of everything and everyone, I have a massive collection that is ever growing, and would love more!

I consider cooking and baking to be a craft, a very very yummy craft.

I do odd and ends stuff every now and then, I jump from craft to craft, whatever I'm feeling that day.

Wish List

A few things I would enjoy receiving are...

!.Anything antique, or vintage. I have a collection rolling, and I'd like to see what others would pick out. :) ( I do have a mushroom obsession-and love an ever growing collection of them, and dried flowers in picture frames)

@.Funky yarn;

.Neat crochet hooks/Knitting needles;

$.Paper crafts;

%.Really neat deco tape, washi tape, or fabric tape;

^.Off the wall stationary;

&.Very fine point pens;

*.Antique bottles;

!!.Neat wrapping paper, and tissue paper that is patterned;

[email protected] handmade by you (even if you don't think you can do it, you can!);

!#.Antique set of scissors (obviously if you live outside of the US this might be a little hard to get through customs);

!$.35mm Film;

!%.Pictures that you have taken;

!^.Antique postcards (I can't seem to find myself sending them out, I become too attached, but I love the collection I have, and would love to have more!);

!&.I like green items, that have been recycled, repurposed, and reused. Things that are good for the environment, from pens to socks;

!*.A mug for coffee from your country;

!(.Craft Kits made by you!;

@).Recipes for anything, except no mushrooms;

@!.Knick knacks (from where you are or that you find);

@@.Quilting notions (for I am just learning to quilt)

@#.Fabric - I like floral, odd patterns, and really bright colors, and any size, shape, or what have you. If you can, I would like natural fibers or organic. I hate using my Dad's stash, I feel like I've used too much. :/

@$.Anything that is/from India (I have an obsession with India), I love the colors, the patterns, the elephants, the culture, and the religions.

@%.And anything that you just want to get rid of, it will go to a good home. :)

Other things I like

::I love all things earth, and natural - I'm an organic girl all the way. Food, fabric, bath and body products etc. Once you see what's inside everything it kind of freaks you out.

::I can't resist a good music festivals, and that love that is felt while you are there.

::I love the wintertime, I don't know why I just do. I spend all year just silently waiting for that crisp breeze that brings pins and needles to your chest. It is exhilarating, and wakes up your soul.

::Colors - I love the entire (and I mean all the colors in the nooks and crannies) color wheel. There isn't a color I do not like, that's why it's so hard to choose one over the others.

::Images - I really like antique photographs (like the old family or portraits from the early days of photos) I really love Star Trek (mainly the Next Generation, I can't get enough Picard, Troi, or Data). Landscape portraits. Of course, the ones you've taken

::Jewelry/Accessories - I don't wear many accessories at all, but I do love rings, and eccentric necklaces.

::Foodie - I love sweet and savory. You don't necessarily have to send me those - I love recipes, and those are a lot easier to send.

::Postcards - I can't resist a handmade postcard, those are better than store bought in my opinion. :) I like vintage ones too.

::CATS! What? I am obsessed, so if you have a tacky cat picture please, I love those. cat pictures, magnets, cards, etc. I can't have enough cats.

::I like the times from the 1920s through the 1970s. From the Prohibition, to the earth loving hippies. From Duwop groups, to the Monterey Pop Festival.

Things I do NOT like

Gothic - I've been there and done that, not into it anymore.

Nothing overly girly - I'm not into that. I don't like the overly pink stuff.

I don't like fairies, or pictures of butterflies, or insects.

I am not a christian, so please no christian items.

Dolls, no dolls. They freak me out.

I am interested in Buddhism, Taoism, and a lot of the eastern religions, so I would enjoy receiving items related to them.

And I think that's it.. :)
