About Me

I live in the Pacific NW. I have a background in psychology. I have a Chihuahua named Toby and a cat named Benny. I enjoy art journaling, scrapbooking, online swaps, concerts, movies and travel. I like modern, surreal, abstract art. I like Picasso, Van Gough, Travis Louie, Kathie Olivas,Yoko dHolbachie, Teesha Moore etc. Graffiti/street art. I have a very dry and sarcastic sense of humor. Im not easily offended and would enjoy getting off the wall, dark, creepy, weird, funny things. Im often shopping and find really neat things but dont buy cause I dont want to offend the person Im sending to. Also swear words and artistic nudity does not bother me.

Im pretty easy and will be happy with basically whatever you send me as long as I can tell there was some thought and effort put into what was sent. Send things you would want to receive yourself.

Please try and make sure the appropriate postage is paid on the package also!

A note to penpals. Im not looking for email penpals. I join snail mail swaps cause I like getting stuff in my mailbox. Sorry not interested, not my thing. Also I like to get LONG chatty letters. I put effort into writing you a nice letter I would like the same in return. Its hard to keep the momentum of the letters going if you dont ever say much in your letter.

Favorite Music

I enjoy most kinds of music. I mostly listen to music like Modest Mouse, Vampire Weekend, Weezer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rolling Stones, Nora Jones, Jack Johnson, Little Dragon, ect. I would say the only kind of music I dont enjoy is country, death metal or industrial music.

Favorite Movies

Anything Tim Burton, Wizard of Oz, Labryinth, Seven, Boogie Nights, The Titanic, Kids, Gummo, Beetle Juice, The Lost Boys, The Sandlot, Napoleon Dynamite. I love horror movies! I also enjoy documentaries.

Favorite Television

I love competition reality tv like Project Runway, Design Star, Face Off, Survivor, Big Brother. I like Nip/Tuck, Freaks and Geeks, The Office, Sex in the City, Shameless, Queer as Folk. For the past several years I have just been watching youtube for the most part. I love to fall down a good rabbit hole on youtube! :)

Favorite Crafts

Art Journaling, mail art

I'm trying out making wax seals for the first time and recently bought my first diamond painting.

I love writing penpals

I love mixed media projects and just got into swaps making tags, clusters, zines etc. I am still learning but having so much fun.


My style: Think Tim Burton/Teesha Moore I like bright bold colors with a slight gothic edge. I LOVE HALLOWEEN!

Comment: So glad this swap wasn’t lost! Thank you…I love your animal papers…especially the skunks! Love all the inserts, too!

Comment: I adore the fun washi's. THANK you so much!!
Comment: Thank you for the assortment of embellishments. I’m looking forward to using them!
Comment: Love all of the things! Thank you!
Comment: Interesting! Thanks for the journal!...My favorite subjects in school were Art, English and History in that order... I majored in Art at Penn State...It was a toss up as to what I wanted to major in but Art is a lot harder than English, so I decided on Art. That was a zillion years ago! Speaking of Art, I entered an unframed tiny 4x6 acrylic painting in the local farm show. There were a LOT of paintings... and I got third prize for my little unframed gem! The top prize went to the local gallery owner, who is a terrific landscape painter; second prize went to an artist I know (both of them had beautifully framed landscape paintings) and then there was my little impressionistic/semi-abstract little tree, all done in shades of brown, with a ribbon right beside them.

Hello. Thank you for your second letter for the long-term pen pal swap. I updated the comments I initially posted on 10OCT12.

Hi! Welcome to the I LOVE Kawaii group! Please read Kawaii 101 written by @ColoradoKate to understand how to be a darling kawaii swapper! We probably won't be hosting any swaps during December due to the holiday mail rush and mail getting lost easier. But I promise we'll be active again come January! =)
