About Me


I am a 33 year old female that lives in the Pacific NW. I have a background in psychology. I have a Doxie dog named Marley and a kitten 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. DONT SEND ME A BUNCH OF DOLLAR BIN STUFF! DONT SEND ME A BUNCH OF STUFF FROM YOUR STASH (Im talkin the kind of stuff no one wants)! I dont want dirty wrinkled paper scraps, gross random pictures you have taken, stuff you have used and then torn out of a smash/scrapbook. I dont mind if you send me something from the dollar bin that you really think I would like or something from your stash that you really feel fits me. But not the whole thing unless the swap calls for that. I also dont mind getting stash items if they are sent as extras but not for an entire type 3 swap! I dont think my packages I send are amazing or anything but I do put effort into it and try and buy some nice things I think you will like. Send me two nice things not 15 lame cheap things. I have had people send me not even dollar bin items but more like 10 cent trinkets. Thats really disappointing. Im not that amazing at art either but you can tell when someone has at least tried and not just thrown it together. Sorry, Im not trying to sound mean and really am easy going. I have just had some really bad experiences!

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. I already know enough people on facebook and what not that I could email all day. 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 Books

Im attempting to tackle books from the 1000 books to read before you die list. Cant say I have gotten very far;)

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.

Favorite Crafts

Art Journaling, mail art

I have gotten out of doing much crafting so am not big on craft supplies and odd and ends. I don't have any use for them.

I do like various markers and pens, sharpies etc

Any cool stencils


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


Im not picky about Kawaii but I dont particularly care for stuff with images of real food/animals/people etc.

Things I would like to get:

cute office supplies,

nail polishes


I love Bath and Body Works stuff,


Halloween is my FAVORITE!!!!!!!,

Day of the Dead style,


pens/ markers for art journaling,

Black sharpies of all sizes (I can never have enough!)

goodies for my doggy or kitty (no made in China treats),


Hello Kitty,

kawaii, especially kawaii stationery sets memo pads,

washi tape and deco tape,

tubes of bright colored water color paints,

a homemade smashbook by you would be awesome,

any special treats from your country or region,

cool stencils , I love red peanut cluster candy that is sold in the south,

I like stars, woodland creatures, polka dots, sparkle, oddities, owls, birds, robots, space, dinosaurs, monkeys, snails, octopus, hedgehogs (you know cute things basically)

mail art!!!,

a letter opener,

cute stickers (full sheets please! random loose stickers are too hard to store and keep track of!),



unused postage stamps

Unique envelopes

I love gift wrapping supplies! Unique, cute, colorful gift wrap bows and ribbons

*********THINGS I DONT LIKE******************* sorry this list is getting so long. It started out with like 3 things and keeps getting longer as I get weird stuff in the mail from people! I feel like swap-bot is teaching me more about what I dont like than what I like.

Shabby chic pastel colors



plain note pads. If you send one I would like something unique with colorful paper or something.

Anything religious

Disney peanuts characters or any cartoon characters really

stuffed animals




peace signs

smiley faces

reward stickers

Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter type stuff

Wedding or baby themed stuff


gross nasty pictures you have taken

dirty, wrinkled, used bits of paper and mag cut outs. I like quality nice things even when it comes to collage images and scrapbook paper.


stationery meant for the computer printer. I dont have a printer and dont plan on getting one anytime soon!

I general I don't want used things! Generally I don't do a lot of crafting so things like buttons, yard, ribbon and scraps of paper don't do it for me.

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! =)
