If you'd like to get to know me a bit...

I’ve moved around a lot & have lived in Austin, Boston, New York City, Los Angeles & Istanbul, but now I call Houston home. I've worked in book publishing, as an ESL teacher & now do marketing for a university. I’m married, no kids but am a dog mom. I’ve worked in dog rescue & am kind of obsessed with dogs and animals in general! I'm a vegetarian and love all animals, including farm animals.

I'm a big fan of modern art, graphic design and pop-culture. Especially bold, colorful or black and white graphics. Kawaii too!

I’m definitely a child at heart and enjoy silly and funny stuff and small details. Swapping has been SO MUCH FUN to see all the beauty in details in the packages I get. And planning and sending swaps has been such a great creative outlet too!

Lately, I’ve been exploring nature, I take my dog to a beautiful nearby park / pond everyday & observe the birds, wildlife & constantly blooming, changing plants at the park.

Likes & Dislikes


  • LOVE cute washi, interesting ribbon, gift wrap, unusual tissue paper.

  • Pop culture stuff, memes!!!, humor

  • Dogs, terriers

  • Flowers, plants, trees

  • Birds, raccoons, opossums, woodland creatures like owl, deer & foxes

  • Camping, campfires, forest, pine cones, cabins

  • Blue sky and clouds. Stars & night sky, outerspace.

  • Magnolias!! are my favorite flowers/trees

  • Hot pink, polka dots, stripes, black and white, gold, RAINBOWS! 🌈 + GLITTER & SPARKLE!


  • Mixed media, collage, illustrations, acrylic painting, lino cuts, photography, line drawings, doodles


  • I’m on a very restricted diet unfortunately but plain roasted nuts are good. No sugary things. If it’s an assigned part of the swap, I can share with family.


  • Scented soap & hand soap; strawberry & fruity, light scents, ginger, orange, white tea, jasmine, vanilla, coffee or food scented candles


  • Meat, seafood, leather. So that extends to pictures of meat too.

  • Along the same lines, I prefer not to get pictures of animals as carriage horses, in rodeos, zoos, circuses, dog sledding, etc.

  • Don’t love tea, pine-scented holiday candles or cinnamon-scented things

While I don’t dislike religion, I’m not religious so those items aren’t for me.

I'm grateful for anything I receive however & LOVE having the opportunity to be creative and giving & doing swaps!

@takehimaway Hand lettering books got my attention! I'm trying to catch up on swaps after an insane month. Once I catch up, I'd like to do that. Thanks!

If you wanna do another private swap, I do have some hand lettering books.
