I'm a SAHM who loves to create. I am a beginner but I always do my best to create items I would like to receive myself. I make pocket letters, decos, ATCs and flipbooks. I am willing to learn new things so whatever is sent to me, I will simply mimic the style and add my personal touch, to send back. I also love snail mail and I send all of my letters decorated with stickers and ribbons and cutouts, whichever I have at the moment. I look forward to swapping!
My Favorites: I love all colors and just about everything used for crafting. My eye gravitates towards neutrals and darker colors.
I am a Leo, I have a fun loving, gracious and calm demeanor but I do "roar" occasionally. I try to keep the dramatics to a minimum.
I am a fairly new Christian, I was raised as a Muslim and I converted about 3 years ago and I love my faith but I am not gung-ho about it, meaning that I love God but I will never push my beliefs on anyone or treat anyone less because of what they believe. My favorite things to collect are washi tape, pens, notecards and stationary, die cuts, scrapbook paper, cute calendars and stickers. I love all stickers EXCEPT the Disney stickers, superhero type stickers or round circles and the dreaded rewards stickers. I have no idea why any full grown adult would send those to another adult. I mostly indulge in flowers and worded stickers and the Stick-a-bilities by the paper craft studios are my favorites.
I do love to draw and color in the adult coloring books but I have a very active toddler and I rarely have a babysitter so most of my time is spent doing what he likes to do, which is usually not coloring. I do make time to do some flipbooks and the like, for my penpals when my little guy is asleep.
I love to read and I prefer romance novels written in the medieval time frame, stories about Lords and Ladies, Dukes and Dutchesses(is that a word? Lol) Lairds and Clans and things like that. I also liked the Harry Potter books, but then they got a bit dark and I'm more of a light hearted gal so I lost interest after Dumbledore died. Right now I am reading a book titled The Twentieth Wife written by Indu Sundaresan and wow it is an amazing read. My favorite authors are Barbara Longely, Nora Roberts, Sandra Hill, Jude Deveraux, Janet Chapman, Marsha Canham, Beatrice Small and Linda Howard. I am a thrift-a-holic and most books I have are found at the thrift store. I love to reuse and recycle loans of crap so if you're into that kind of stuff, let's swap!
I am not a huge music fan, although I do love Taylor Swift whenever I do listen to it and generally all genres speak to my soul but if I have the choice, I like to be in a quiet atmosphere so I can be one with my thoughts. I get overstimulated easily nowadays and it is so rare that I have any time alone that when I have a choice, I prefer to be at peace. These are all of the things that make me, me.
I am very active on Facebook, my name is Aaliyah Jackson and I rarely have a picture posted. I am open to be friends with anyone on Swapbot! I love all animals and I am especially fond of cats and kittens, although my parents have a rottweiler named Maxie who has one heck of a personality, haha. She's a little bipolar, i think. I love her regardless, rottweilers are my favorite breed of dog.
I am fairly easy to please but there are several things I do not prefer...
I loooooveeee washi tape, BUT not white plastic backs or ANYTHING from the dollar store(besides zebra print), I will not be a fan, and I probably won't use it so please dont waste it on me. I don't like Emojii or Poop stuff, I don't like clovers or plain looking stuff, I like pretty girly stuff, retro stuff, goth-like stuff and most things that seem unusual or quirky.
Please do not send me any SHINY or GLITTER tape, I have plenty of foil tape with saturns and orbs on it, do not need anymore I barely use what I have.
I looooooooveeee stickers, but PLEASE do not send me stickers from the dollar store unless they are floral. No homes, no coffee, no pop ups...no thanks. I get most of my stickers from Hobby Lobby and crafting stores and while I am interested in getting gifts via mail, I'd love to be excited by something I can use. Although, I DO love the floral stickers from the dollar store and those are always ok with me as long as they're not pop-ups or 3d or any of that mess.
Please do not send me Avengers or Frozen or Mickey Mouse or Anna and Elsa or anything like that no Iron Man no Superman...I will take Wonder Woman (because who doesn't love WW) and I will take Hello Kitty but the rest is not for me. PLEASE.
I love cats and dogs, but please do not send me any that have red or colored backgrounds, I do not like the way they look on anything and I will not use them and again, please, nothing 3-d or Pop-up.
Thank you :)
Decos, anything Washi, flipbooks, ATC and Pocket Letters (although lately, I don't feel like doing those, they use too many resources)
I am so ARTSY-FARTSY so I will try anything once, if you have an idea and want to teach me about it I will try it and swap with ya.
Please send me any excess decos!!! I love doung them and I will take any that I can get my grubby paws on.
