About Me

I'm a married queer librarian.

I live with my wife, 2 cats, 5 hamsters (Syrians and robos), and a parakeet. We live in New England.

Things that are important to me: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Anti White Supremacy, Black Lives Matter, Trans Rights are Human Rights, and Women's Rights. Also trans women ARE real women.

Hobbies

knitting, quilting, swaps, bullet journal, water colors, ATC making and trading, activism, hamsters, cats, geocaching, bike riding, video games, baking, cooking, reading queer romance novels, webcomics, reading tarot and collecting tarot cards, hiking, collecting postcards

Favorite Crafts

I knit, crochet, weave, spin yarns, quilt, embroider, and cross stitch.

I do bullet journaling so I love things like washi tape, fun pens, stamps, and stationery items.

I like to water color and especially have gotten into making ATCs because they are the perfect tiny canvas.

If you're sending yarn, I love fingering weight yarn, wool and wool blends please. I'd prefer not to get acrylics.

Beads are great! Fat quarters rock! Fabric remnants in neat colors are sweet :)

Things I love to receive

Rainbow themed things, hamster toys, pin cushions, fabric (scraps are fun, anything 2 inches or bigger I can use), washi tape, post cards with fun stamps, wonky star quilt blocks with white/low volume/white reading backgrounds.

Themes and Motifs I love

Stars, moons, rainbows, witches, knitting, quilting, sewing, hamsters, cats, dragons/dinosaurs, mythical creatures, tarot, quilt blocks (especially stars), dragon age (my favorite character is Dorian), splatoon, sky: children of light, animal crossing, tetris, legend of zelda, pokemon, cupcakes, Assassins Creed Valhalla, untitled goose game, jellyfish, mandalas, crystals, plants, cute animals

Favorite Colors

My favorite colors are blue and rainbow. I love bold bright colors and modern prints. I'm not a fan of pastels or old style florals. I avoid mustardy yellow, burnt orange, olive green, and browns.

I love all things with sparkle and glitter.

Noms

Favorite Candy: Fruit flavored things - Starburst, regular and sour skittles, gummi bears, sweet tarts, spree, strawberry/fruit Mentos

I love teas, hot or iced, favorites are fruity teas and cinnamon ones. No mint or licorice flavors. No Coffee, please.

I love dark chocolate with nuts and/or fruit. Nothing banana or banana flavored though.

Please do not send me:

I'm a witch/pagan, so please don't send me Christian items, I just don't have any use for them and I'm sure someone else would enjoy them.

Please don't send me anything that smells of cigarette smoke, I have asthma and it triggers it.

We are a vegetarian house so no meat products please. Honey/eggs/ that kind of thing is okay.

Postcards

I love oddball post cards. Not a huge fan of the touristy general area kind. Themes I would love: nerdy geeky outer space constellations fantasy queer themed gems quilting/knitting/yarn bookstores books water color painting art bright colors art supplies cats witches tea cakes baking rainbows underwater fairy tale folklore

Witchy Things

I am a self identified and self initiated witch. I consider myself an eclectic witch. I am interested in mysticism, kitchen witchery, textile crafting, herbs, candles, and intuitive practices. I read tarot, drink so much tea, and work with rainbows. I am interested in Norse runes (fuck white supremacy and those who have co-opted runes to serve their racist bullshit), Greek pantheon, solitary practice, rituals, and chaos magic.

Plant Allies: lavender, cedar, citrus. Herb and spice allies: cinnamon, hot peppers Power colors: blue, purple, teal Animal allies: cats, hawks
