About Me

Would you like to receive a RAK (random act of kindness)? Send me your address in a private message, and I'll look at your profile for ideas! Sending me a message for an RAK doesn't guarantee you'll get one, but if you don't send me your address it does guarantee you won't get one!

I'm an INFJ, Pisces, queer paper crafter, recently moved back to SoCal from the Pacific NW, and I love to send and receive mail. πŸ’Œ

I tend to get things out the same day partners are assigned, and rate immediately when things arrive. I mark items as sent when I put them in the mail slot in my front door for my carrier to pick up that day, or when I drop them at the post office. βœ”οΈ

I welcome handmade items. 🎨

I enjoy Postcrossing, mixed media art/collage, iHanna handmade postcard swaps, daisy yellow index card a day, and other postal and paper crafts. βœ‚οΈ

Β‘Avid! postal swap participant. πŸ“¬

I have a herd of cats (5!) Three Siamese and two tabbies. Also feeding a cat my neighbors abandoned in November 2020. Update: I said goodbye to my sweet girl Lu (one of the tabbies) on Friday December 3rd, 2021. I feel like I've lost my shadow.

Postal swaps bring me a lot of joy while I'm physically limited. I'm a #spoonie dealing with a lot of chronic pain - fibromyalgia, spinal injury, degenerated disks and multiple other spinal and nerve problems, allergic response inflammatory arthritis, as well as a handful of other autoimmune issues. Unless you can relate, I'm not terribly interested in talking about it. #spoonies

My artistic background is in super 8 and 16mm film production, photography, and paper crafting of all kinds.πŸŽ₯πŸ“·

I have a dark leaning-think goth and not horror, green/plant/animal witch. Emily Strange, Tim Burton (Vincent, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow, Alice, Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, etc.), the old Beetlejuice animated series, Edward Gorey, Nikki McClure, crows, black+red+white together, ghosts, bats, cats, coastal, nature. Alice in Wonderland, especially classic (pre-Disney) illustrations. I also like lil Bub, grumpy cat, sea creatures like whales, narwhals, manatees, otters, seahorses, octopuses, bioluminescent critters. Gnomes and mushrooms. Botanical. Ferns. Redwoods. I'm a big nerd for fractals in nature. πŸ§›πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ¦‡πŸ‹πŸ¦¦πŸ™πŸͺ΄πŸ„

I'd love to receive Halloween themed postcards any time of year. πŸŽƒπŸ‘»

I LOVE coffee and coffee themed items like stickers, washi, postcards, stamps, etc. β˜•

My grandma made circuit boards for the Space Shuttles, and I'd love to receive anything related to the NASA Space Shuttle programs. πŸš€

The Jetsons (Rosey!), mid mod futuristic space art, and mid century images of humans in space intrigue me. πŸ›Έ

For tea swaps, I am allergic to 🚫 cardamom (chai, etc.), hibiscus, lavender, and nuts aside from almonds 🚫, but anything else is fine. Do you have a favorite roasted green tea?πŸ«–πŸ΅

🚫 I don't have a use for items geared toward very young people, reward stickers, or planner and journaling stickers. A snip of ribbon or lace or twine is nice on occasion, but I won't use yarn or fabric scraps. I have many allergies, so I'm not interested in receiving cosmetics, pressed flowers, strongly scented items. I'm atheist and am not interested in receiving anything western religious/christian/deity themed. Honoring earth, others, and self is welcome. 🚫

Favorite Books

The Secret Garden has been a favorite since I first began to read as a tiny tot. I've read Jane Eyre countless times. The Griffin and Sabine series makes me giddy. Marjane Satrapi and Michelle Tea graphic novels are keepers. More recently, The Night Circus was excellent enough to warrant a re-read. Re-reading Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles, and just finished The Vampire Lestat (2nd book 5/28/22). Finished Selma Blair's Mean Baby (6/4/22) and finished Michelle Zauner's/Japanese Breakfast's Crying in H-Mart (6/7/22). Finished with The Book of Form and Emptines by Ruth Ozeki (6/20/22). Finished Snow White Learns Witchcraft by Theodora Goss (6/23/22). Time for another Ruth Ozeki title, A Tale For The Time Being.

Favorite Movies

City of Lost Children and True Stories are my top favorites. Wes Anderson and Sophia Coppola.

I studied German expressionist film, film production, photography, women in media, and literature. Double major, double minor. BA(IS)

Comment: Ohhh, the way you decorated the back of this chunk is so CUTE πŸͺπŸ’œ I've never had these cookies, but I totally agree. A lot of store bought cookies just taste so artificial to me after getting in the habit of making my own!
