About Me

Hola, my name's Jessie! I enjoy movies, music, painting, and random crafting projects, and I look forward to the new art I find through this to admire and inspire me.

I'm somewhere in my mid 30's. I have 2 of the sweetest chihuahuas you'd ever meet, Loki and Dexter. They are my children, but my cat, Judas is my familiar! He follows me around everywhere and we just get each other. Update: A new polydactyl kitten has been added to the family named Toby, and he has the biggest purr and so much spunk already! He LOVES to play fetch with anything from twist ties to dog toys. I'm an INFP, Aquarius, Ravenclaw, and Team Valor for those of you that play Pokemon GO! (My trainer code is 5137 4991 4113 - feel free to add me)

My craft stuff will probably always be the biggest space consumer in my place, so I joined this to help put it to good use! I'm a bit quiet, but I love making new friends & discussing movies, music, shows, and stories, mostly. I'm part hippy, part metal head, part witch, part nerd, & part mermaid.

I cannot stress how much I love anything nautical! Vintage gothic and psychedelic/bohemian are a couple of my other favorites when it comes to home decor, and if I like the art I get through swaps enough, I try to find a place to display it, especially in those 3 categories. Mushrooms are included in the psychedelic category, but I love all mushroom stuff, including more vintage/biology book styles of art. My partner and I like to antique shop, and when we leave town on any adventure, we always try to find a mushroom souvenir to bring back home.

Neurodivergent Here

After a couple yucky, unnecessary experiences I've had with swappers on here now, I feel I should let it be known that I'm autistic. It definitely came across to me that these experiences were over differences in neurotype communication styles and preconceived notions of what I'm like on the other side of this screen. I don't subscribe to hierarchy, I don't think I'm better than anyone else, or that anyone is better than anyone. I'm an open book. I'm a terrible liar and just hate the feeling of being dishonest, so I simply don't. What I say is exactly what I mean. I don't claim to be perfect at communication, but there is simply not any ill intent toward anyone on this site. That would take negative energy that I have no interest in harboring for complete strangers. If you feel some kind of way about me, I'm just going to let you navigate your own feelings. I don't need to be everyone's cup of tea.


FYI I use a sponge pen for sealing envelopes, so water is used, not saliva.

I pledge to rate
I give hearts based on effort. Be that how much you put into your art, or, especially for postcards, whether or not you took the time to look at my profile and pick something special to my taste, or for non-profile based, at least wrote or sent me something interesting, these all fit in that category. I believe creativity isn't as much a talent as it is a skill that has to be exercised. I miss the way I drew and painted as a teen, but after not finding the time for it up until the past few years on and off, I'm still finding my footing artistically.

I mark sent when the mail is "out of my hands," as per Swapbot rules, which in most cases, means my mailbox. Therefore postmark may be a day or two after that, but I do try to get them out asap, before the deadline.

I also pledge: To always send my swaps on time, or IF some crisis comes up, to message you ahead of time about it being sent late. I am NOT a flaker, so please message me if you don't receive something and are worried! I've gotten to a point now where I send most stuff off well before the deadline. I have, however, lost much faith in the US Postal system - It makes me understanding of others' lost swaps, as long as they do me the same courtesy I would do them, by messaging before the deadline about sending a late swap, keeping in close contact, and re-sending when necessary.

Favorite Movies

  • I Heart Huckabees is my favorite movie. I love existential movies/conversations, especially when combined with humor. Life is absurd, and many times terrifying, and I don't think I'd survive it if I couldn't laugh about it.
  • Pretty much any pop culture movie, except I only keep up about halfway on super hero movies. Not a big fan of action. Unless it has Keanu Reeves in it, of course.
  • Horror movies, especially the old 80's/90's ones
  • I also LOVE claymation and creepy puppetry, like in The Labyrinth or anything Guillermo del Toro.

TV shows

Too many to count, but I will note I'm a big fan of animation geared toward adults, as in the humor or content is commonly appreciated by adults, even if it's kid-friendly too. Examples include Venture Brothers (and pretty much anything adultswim), Gravity Falls, Over the Garden Wall, Bee and Puppycat, Steven Universe, Midnight Gospel, Castlevania, Harley Quinn (HBO series), and of course Adventure Time and anime.

Adventure Time


  • Favorite colors: Any shade of red or teal, especially dark, saturated shades. I also particularly like bright/neon colors and holographic/iridescent. Lately I've been really taking to orange, which is my current hair color.

  • ADVENTURE TIME - I love ALLL the characters, but my absolute favorites are Marceline and Bubblegum, who I have tattooed on me, along with Catbug and Puppycat. If you know where either of those come from I will adore you haha

  • Alan Watts & Terence McKenna (quotes would be lovely)
  • Alphonse Mucha/ ART NOUVEAU
  • ANIMAL BONES - the real thing or anything depicting them
  • Animals in clothing, especially formal wear
  • Anime
  • Avocados
  • Homemade bookmarks
  • Boston Terriers / Frenchies
  • Brads
  • CATS
  • Circular punchies, but only if you can do unique 1" ones (for bottle cap magnets)
  • CIRCUS & flow art. I do NOT condone animals in the circus, though.
  • Colorful messages
  • Coffee or tea stained paper!
  • COTTAGECORE/ haunted cottagecore
  • Deadly or otherwise odd or rare plants
  • Dinosaurs & dinosaur birds (ostriches, emus, magpies, geese, flamingos)
  • Embossed images, cards, etc.
  • Embellishments
  • Envelopes. Bought & made are both great, as long as they're not plain!
  • Ferrets/ weasels
  • Any FOLKLORE, mythical, or cryptid creature
  • Garfield
  • Ghosts
  • Hearts, especially anatomical
  • Hemp or leather cord
  • HORROR and creepy things
  • Hot wax stamps
  • INAPPROPRIATE HUMOR, as long as it's not racist, homophobic, etc.
  • Kawaii
  • Krampus
  • Lace
  • Llamas
  • Lilies - tiger lilies are my favorite flower
  • Mandalas/ bohemian patterns / PSYCHEDELIC
  • MOTHS, especially lunar
  • Music
  • NAUTICAL! Especially mermaids, piratey things, narwhals, & creatures with tentacles
  • Organic beads/ charms (glass, stone, wood, etc)
  • Painting - acrylic & watercolor
  • PHANTASMAGORIA, like Alice in Wonderland & Willy Wonka (older versions are preferred)
  • Pinups
  • Postcards
  • Rainbow Brite!
  • Recycled book pages or fabric
  • Risque
  • Shabby chic
  • Spiders
  • Squishies are my favorite sensory thing! I know it's probably not relevant here, but on the same train of thought, I like soft puffy stickers for sensory reasons too
  • Stamps
  • Stencils
  • Steampunk/ dystopian
  • Succulents, but not spiky cacti
  • Sushi
  • Tardigrades
  • Tattoo style art, stickers, whatever
  • Teapots/ Tea - art or the real thing. My favorites are thai tea, black tea and fruity/ginger, but I'll try anything
  • Textures
  • VINTAGE/ retro, especially antique portraits (1920's or before), or "ghost" photos, as I've sometimes seen them labeled
  • Washi tape
  • Witchcraft
  • Woodland creatures (Foxes, birds/ owls, deer, worms, & forest folklore creatures especially)
  • Zazzle
  • Zodiacs


  • ATC Note:

    I'm on the hunt for some quality coffee ATC's at the moment for a home decor project I have in mind.

  • Ornaments

    Since I join homemade ornament swaps some years, my tree is now Krampus themed, so even if Krampus is too challenging, I would love ornaments in the red/black/vintage scheme of colors to add to it! Other creepy or occult ornaments also go on my tree.


In General

  • Not a big fan of yellow, but it's not going to bug me unless there's an obnoxious amount on whatever I receive.
  • Christianity, unless it's satirical, depicting an ophanim (spinning wheel eyeball covered monstrosity), or devil/demon related.
  • Kid stuff, reward or planner stickers, etc.
  • Trypophobia triggers. Fractals are an exception; even though they still trigger it a little, I love them a lot.
  • Disney, Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry
  • Modern art
  • Southwest style
  • Country living, "live, laugh, love", etc.
  • Scented stuff - I'm picky
  • Coloring papers or postcards. I have so many now and not enough patience for them!


I really don't like anything generic, especially touristy! Even if it's vintage. Please save those for someone who will appreciate it.

PLEASE no Disney, Looney Tunes, or otherwise kiddy cards. I've never been a fan, and don't have any kids to share it with. I only like the cartoons listed in "TV shows".

Not a fan of scenery / landscape postcards. I'd much prefer the weirdest PC you've got! Also any of my above likes are just as welcome on a postcard, especially antique portraits :D


I currently have tons of Alice in Wonderland, Adventure Time, D&D, and over-sized Star Wars PCs. Feel free to message me a request if I am sending to you for a swap, or if you want to do a private swap for one (or a handful). I love receiving hearts, and will always do my best to please!

Favorite Music

My top genres are indie/folk, metal (except 80's hair metal), electronica/EDM, and rap. I also take to a fair amount of 80's songs and oldies. I like just about anything except country and pop music. The stuff I listen to most is rarely on the radio, if ever. I'm a big fan of Spotify.
Some of my favorite bands: Aesop Rock, Aphex Twin, The Blood Brothers, Dan Deacon, Days N Daze, Elliot Smith, Eyedea, The Faint, The Fall of Troy, Foster the People, Glass Animals, Gogol Bordello, Heaven Shall Burn, La Dispute, Lorn, Marc Rebillet, OK Go, Otep, Poor Mans Poison, Puscifer, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Rone, Samsa, Space Jesus, Suicide Silence, Tipper, Truth, Um...


Comment: Thank you for the card! :⁠-⁠) My favorite Christmas cookies are called "bon-bons" but they're so complicated to make I never have them.
Comment: Thank you for the adorable card! :⁠-⁠) No big plans, just getting gifts mailed out/disbursed.

Comment: Hi Jessie, Thanks for the cool PC! Those christmases with all the cousins were pretty awesome! My grandmother had 10 kids and 7 of them used to live in Darwin. We had Christmas at her house - it was really noisy with all us kids running around in the sweltering heat - there was at least 20 kids! And the food was awesome - she was a great Chinese cook, born in Darwin and she had a Chinese cafe and all her kids bought food - we got the best mix of Chinese and Australian food!
Comment: Thank you so much! I really will have fun playing. Have a great weekend.
Comment: Yay for snow at your bestie's house - sounds like a great way to spend time! Say hello to your chi's! Merry Christmas and thank you for the cute PC!

Comment: Thank you for the postcard! Your Chihuahuas sound like the best of friends! We have three dogs. An almost 14 year old Chihuahua, an almost 3 year old German Shepherd, and an almost 1 year old hound. We've got quite the circus going with the three of them. 🖤
Response: That is the best assortment of dogs, oh my gosh! I grew with German Shepards and love them so much. And a friend recently added a basset hound to their family, and she is the cutest!

Comment: Thank you very much for the nice Alice card. It's not terribly cold here yet. Actually, it's been pretty mild so far this fall which I don't mind since I hate the cold. I'm glad your fur-babies are able to enjoy the outdoors now with your cooler temps.

Comment: Thanks for the cool assortment of items including the outer envelope. My husband and I went on a hearse tour in St Augustine FL. Savannah is a super cool city. Been on a haunted carriage ride there.

Hello Jessie. I received the WTA postcards today. They are great! Perfect, really. It would be so exciting to see Niagara Falls on board the Maid of the Mist. What an experience that would be! Also love the Other two postcards as well. Hugs!
