Favorite Crafts

acrylic painting; my usual style involves heavily diluting the paint so the results look a lot like watercolours:

Arabian ibis

poetry; I'm influenced by modern and contemporary Canadian poetry, surrealism, language poetry, and the "undifferentiated mass" of poetry by 20-something American poets with eyesore webzines.

Favourite Craft Themes

  • birds (owls, pelicans, crows and magpies)
  • ocean (jellies, sea stars, algae)
  • space (stars, nebulae, planets and moons)
  • fantasy and science fiction (original or myth-based)
  • extinct animals (stegosaurus, dimetrodon, pterodactyl)
  • cities (skylines, signs, cities at night)

Favourite Colours

blue, turquoise, neon green & black, purple & black, pink & brown

Wish List


  • hand-drawn or painted postcard
  • mail in a decorated envelope
  • handmade envelopes
  • handmade stickers
  • your poems or short stories
  • handmade necklaces
  • handmade hair bows


  • simple vegetarian recipes
  • poems you like
  • promotional materials from art shows

Storebought items

  • kawaii stationery
  • colourful pens and Sharpies
  • scrunchie hair ties
  • socks

Odds and Ends

  • pretty much any stickers or stationery you have lying around ;)
  • vegan makeup samples

Tea (individually packaged, please)

  • with coconut
  • with vanilla
  • nettlewort
  • most teas, really, but please don't send mint or rooibos if you can avoid it

General Interestes

Science, especially ecology.

Contemporary art


Pop music, but for music swaps I'm interested in any musical genre.

Manga and comics, my respective favourites being Sailor Moon and Saga.

Kawaii. My current favourite character is Aggretsuko, but I'm not picky about kawaii, so feel free to send any character or brand.

Sticky note

I am away for work until Jan. 3, 2018. There will be a delay in rating swaps I receive before then.

Thank you to @jannikinz , @Traceyk , @runswithscizzors and @dearguppy for angeling swaps for me.

Comment: Great postcard, Beth! And, congrats (to both of you) for finishing the MCAT! I have some weird eye things too (funky optic nerve), so I'm always volunteering to let the EM residents do ultrasounds on my eyes to see if they can find the weird parts!
Comment: I've skimmed the first page of your letter and look forward to replying to you! Thank you very much for the postcards-- they're perfect!!
Response: You're welcome!:)

Thank you for the Happy Mail Tag! It's wonderful!

mgallardo68 on Jul 31, 2017: Hi @bblue Glad it arrived. You still have something else arriving for this tag. Today or tomorrow should be there. The other tag (stickers one), will take a bit longer as it is an international shipping but is already shipped.

Delete bblue on Jul 31, 2017: Thanks for the postcard book ("Lost Ocean") you sent for the "7 wishes a day" tag. I like the postcards, and I really appreciate the effort you took on this tag after it wasn't received the first few times. I wish you good luck with your mail and a good mail day. =) Thanks again!!
