*NOTE: Please let me know right away if you are missing a rating or swap from me! I have a difficult time navigating Swapbot on my iPhone. If I get confused on a swap and send something that is incorrect, a gentle message detailing what I missed will get you one of the best make-up packages as an apology. People have to realize that we all walk different paths in life, have different upbringings, experiences and trials, so our understanding of things will be different even if explained simply- please just message me before rating if I mess up your swap and I will make it right up to you- no lines, no waiting! Unless I have car trouble. If that happens, I canβt really help it because Iβm the only one in my household with a car. It is never my intention to make anyone unhappy and I promise never to flake on you! I have only been flaked on twice thankfully, and I did rate them low. βοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈ
π©πΎβπ¦± Hello, I am Aaliyah. Iβm 40 yrs old, I have two children, Gage/5 π¦π½ and Isaiah/18π¨πΎβπ¦± Isaiah is on the Spectrum, Gage is off the Richter! They are polar opposites in regards to personality. Gage is my Virgo(born in the year of the Snake) and Isaiah is my Scorpio(he is my Dragon). They are my entire world! Love being a mom and love grumbling about it tooπ I mean, do these kids ever stop busting into the bathroom??! ... I got married young(21) and divorced(5 years later) but I found happiness again, I have a boyfriend(an Aquarius/Roosterπ) and weβve been together for five years. We have two female, snobbish rescues(cats): Sha-nella and Mamaz (yes, my kids named their cats)
I love to create! I consider myself an enthusiastic beginner, but I always do my best to create items I would like to receive. Doesnβt work out for everyoneβs tastes but I put my heart in it all. I love to make decos, paintings, ATCs and flipbooks, handmade envelopes and an occasional handmade postcard. I keep an art journal that I donβt get to play with nearly enough and I love snail mail. I have a few penpals that I write with a few times a year. I am not good at writing every week but I will write you every few months. I always stay in touch with my pals and they have accepted this.
My life is crazy busy with all the running around that I do for my kids, the extra stuff I do for my mom and brothers, I keep a super clean household and that takes up most of my time. I also work at a Vape shop part time. I try to send my letters and swaps decorated with whatever I have on hand at the moment, it doesnβt always happen but either way, I will try to make the swap fun! I love ALL colors and just about anything that can be used for paper crafts.
I am a Leoπ¦ born into the year of the Horseππ½ I try to maintain a fun-loving, positive outlookππ π₯π₯Warningπ₯π₯ I tend to get excited about everything donβt be surprised if you see an exclamation point after every sentence of mine!
I will never push my beliefs on anyone or treat anyone less because of what they believe! Personally, I am more spiritual than religious. I basically believe in every damn thing! I believe in Tarot, Psychics, Energy, Numerology, Feng Shui, Buddhism and a good swear word. I am πLGBT friendly. I β€οΈ to laugh! I hate discrimination...but if I see a funny joke here and there, I laugh. I hate racism...but if I see a funny joke here and there, I laugh. I do not put anyone down, but...if I see a funny joke here and there....(well, you get it) π€·π½ββοΈ..meh, Iβm not perfect. Nobody walking this earthβs surface is. I am not easily offended by anything except animal cruelty and bullying. I will go crazy over some animal cruelty or bullies. And spiders. I have come up with the craziest karate moves you have everrr seen thanks to spidersπ πΎββοΈ
Washi tape, pens, notecards, stationary, envelopes, playing cards, brads, paperclips, die cuts, scrapbook paper, glitter glue, confetti, cardboard chips, embellishments of any kind, paints, inks and stamps, comic book pages like Maxine and Garfield, fairies, cute calendars and of course, stickers! I LOVE SARCASM and WEIRD SHIT. Oh, and GLITTERπ€π€
I do not like Disney, superhero, planner, kiddie type or reward stickers. I indulge in the flourish type stickers, farmland animals, cuss words, humorous, floral, laptop, worded or anything that glitters or have foil on them. Stick-a-bilities by Paper Craft Studios are my favorites. I do not prefer adult coloring items at all these days. And please, no memo sheets unless they are uniquely shaped memo sheets.
-I love to read! I prefer romance novels written in the medieval time frame, stories about English Lords and Ladies, Scottish Lairds and their Lassies and things like that. I also like magical books. I loved the Harry Potter series(Ravenclaw here!) but then they got a bit dark and I'm more of a light hearted gal so I almost lost interest after Dumbledore diedπ but gained it back when Ron and Hermione finally got it togetherπ€ My favorite authors are Barbara Longely, Nora Roberts, Sandra Hill, Jude Deveraux, Janet Chapman, Marsha Canham, Beatrice Small and Linda Howard. I also like to browse through an occasional supermarket Enquirer or something equally decadent (gossipy, of course). I am a thrift-a-holic and most books I have, are found at the thrift store. I love to reuse and recycle loads of crap I find.
Pop, Rap, Hip Hop, R&B, Musicals, some Country and some Rock(rarely) but honestly, whenever I do listen to music, all genres are cool. Send me your playlists! I also appreciate being in a quiet, peaceful atmosphere just coolinβ out. I get overstimulated easily nowadays and it is so rare that I have any time alone.
I love animals, I am especially fond of kittens, lions and big dogs (the bigger the better) and my favorite breed? Hands down the Rottweilers.
I love to get beautiful mailβ£οΈ There are so many talented people here on SwapBot! It blows my mind! I keep a lot of the pretty envelopes I get. If you are willing to make an entry in one of my deco books, please let me know!!
Oh, and I talk a lot. π€¦πΎββοΈ
Not fond of the white plastic backs or anything from the dollar stores, unless itβs zebra printed, cute notecards or socks. I don't like Emojii items in the mail or poops or clovers or plain washi. WASHI LOVE girly, vintage, mermaids, goth-like, cuss words and anything βartsyβ or βweirdβ. I love Jane Davenport, Dylusions and Dyan Reaveley washi tape. Thank you for anything you share though!
πππLove anything sent that has crazy edges that you can use as borders on paper or in decos and I love anything that has gold, rose gold or silver foil accents. Please know that while I am being specific, it is just because itβs for my profile but I donβt rate down if you donβt send my preference. I know we all have different stuff to send from our stash and I love getting to experience the mystery in what a partner will send- it is interesting to see who I have similar tastes with
πΈπΌπΈπΌπΈπΌπΈπΌπΈπΌπΈπΌπΈπΌπΈπΌπΈ I am one of the rare people on SB that love extras, unashamedly. If you send me extras that I can use, yes I am giving out hearts. You get a heart, they get a heart, your pets get a heart, the world gets a heart LOL! I am full of love and I love making people happy by adding a heart to their rating. I see nothing wrong with that...If I do not give a heart, it is usually because the swap wasnβt complete but I rarely come across that and most of the time a missing heart is due to me using an iPhone π± 5 with sensory issues!! If I have missed your heart and you ask me about it, I will let you know why I didnβt add it. Iβm simple and open to your messages so please donβt feel like you canβt ask me about your rating. I rarely give hearts for naked postcards or book card swaps. Itβs never personal.
Cards from board games, trivia, video games, jokers and cards with sayings or quotes on them.
-Please do not send me envelopes made from magazines. I prefer the calendar pages or the regular card stock type and I love vellum made envies. I can always use cool cutouts of magazine words and pictures, old book pages, etc. (Like what youβd see on ransom notes) Letters, pictures, maps, venues, etc. I adore ribbons, cool fibers or threads that I can use to alter art projects, buttons and embellishments, βcommercial-typeβ ephemera, project life cards, printouts with a positive message, journal cards, postcards or anything else like that. Also, I will swap just about anything to get personalized address labels because I suck at making them. If you have a business selling them, let me know so I can purchase! I like to try out different types.
**Please send me any of your excess art collaborations, sticker bags or decos!!! I love doing them and I will take any that I can get my grubby paws on and I always have extra so if you want some, hit me up!
π₯ππ₯ππ₯ππ₯ππ₯ππ₯ππ₯ππ₯ I enjoy reading your profiles on Swapbot. Itβs almost like people-watching, which I feel weird about doing, since where I live you kinda just mind your own business, ya know? I like to read SB profiles and I jump around to different profile links on people I see in random comments so if I message you out of the blue, Iβve read your profile and something stuck out. I would love to find some art buddies to meet and do group crafts with or painting with wine, etc. if you live near Bethlehem, Pennsylvania or are only two hours away and if youβd like to get together some day, let me know.
