About Me

Hello! I'm a student in my 30s and a longtime mailartist and penpaller. I'm on here mostly for small "random items" type swaps that allow me to pick out treasures to send you from my dragon's hoard of stationery, etc., but occasionally will do more involved swaps.

Favourite Crafts

acrylic painting; my usual style involves heavily diluting the paint so the results look a lot like watercolours:

Arabian ibis

poetry; I'm influenced by modern and contemporary Canadian poetry, surrealism, language poetry, and Stuff I Found On The Internet.

Favourite Craft Themes

  • birds (owls, pelicans, crows and magpies)
  • ocean (jellies, sea stars, algae)
  • space (stars, nebulae, planets and moons)
  • fantasy and science fiction (original or myth-based)
  • extinct animals (stegosaurus, dimetrodon, pterodactyl)
  • cities (skylines, signs, cities at night)
  • colour schemes (blue & turquoise, neon green & black, purple & black, pink & brown)

Wish List

Handmade

  • hand-drawn or painted postcard
  • mail in a decorated envelope
  • handmade envelopes
  • handmade stickers
  • your poems or short stories
  • handmade necklaces
  • handmade hair bows

Clippings

  • simple vegetarian recipes
  • poems you like
  • promotional materials from art shows
  • Sudoku puzzles
  • paper and magazine cut-outs related to my interests as I've just started a traveler's journal. It has to be thin or regular weight paper; unfortunately I don't have a use for patterned cardstock or scrapbooking die-cuts.

Storebought items

  • kawaii stationery
  • colourful pens and Sharpies
  • adult colouring postcards (please only send the postcards, if possible; I have enough colouring sheets and books to last an eternity)

Odds and Ends

  • pretty much any stickers or washi samples or stationery you have lying around ;)
  • Some of my favourite characters that appear on stationery and stickers are Aggretsuko, Rilakkuma, Kuromi, Doc McStuffins, and the Tokidoki Mermicornos.

Tea (individually packaged, please)

  • with coconut
  • with vanilla
  • nettlewort
  • most teas, really, but please don't send mint or rooibos if you can avoid it

General Interests

Science, especially ecology.

Contemporary art

Poetry

Pop music, but for music swaps I'm interested in any musical genre.

Manga and comics, my respective favourites being Sailor Moon and Saga.

Kawaii. I'm not picky about it, so feel free to send any character or brand.

Angels

Thank you to @jannikinz , @Traceyk , @runswithscizzors , @dearguppy , and @mgallardo68 for angeling swaps for me.

Thank you to @RooBaRoo for my Swap-Bot icon.

Comment: First I do so apologize for the super delayed rating...it seems some of the ones I left last time never stuck :( I am thrilled with the goodies you picked for me. The cute sticker sheets, the wee little memo papers, the postcards, and you even found a Winnie the Pooh envelope! Thank you so much for swapping with me!

Hi Beth, thank you for granting my January wish for vintage ephemera. I will use them for clusters and journal cards. I would like to try your technique for an envelope logo too!
