About Me

I've been dealing with some heath issues so I'm only doing a limited number of swaps right now. Please contact me with any questions - I may be a bit slower to respond depending on how I'm feeling, but I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks!


I love having fun mail waiting for me when I get to the post office and sending things to others that I think they'll enjoy

I always send my swaps - If you haven't received something from me or there's a problem, please let me know before rating and I'll gladly make it right. If you're having trouble with something you're sending to me send me a note about that too - life happens and I totally get it. Let's make sure this is a good experience for everyone.

I love handmade items - they're always welcome and appreciated :)

Book quote – September NRGordon

β€œYou’re just as sane as I am.” Luna Lovegood, From Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, By: J.K. Rowling

Sorry this is so late. I totally misunderstood and mailed the quotes on PCs.

Hello Autumn,

Thank you for hosting the "Profile Love" swap and allowing me to be a part of it.

I read your profile and learned that you homeschool and you like bears so I thought I'd share with you the "bear facts" about black bears since they are found in East Texas where I live.

Black Bear Facts by Jerry Walls, Nature Columnist

Before 1900, black bears were very common in East Texas.

One of the largest mammals in North America, adults can reach up to and even over 6 feet in length.

Males are normally larger than the females.

Males can weigh over 400 pounds but usually average less.

Their life span is up to 20 years.

They can run up to 35 miles per hour for a fairly short distance.

The name "black bear" can be a bit confusing as they also can be brown in color.

They are listed as a threatened species.

They are officially classified as a carnivore. However, they are actually largely an omnivore as more than 50% of their diet is vegetative.

Since the year 2000, bear sightings have been documented in 23 East Texas counties.

How many bears live in East Texas? The exact number is not known. Estimates range from 20 to 100 bears but no one knows for sure.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Hey Autumn! I'm one of your partners for the Profile Love - October swap. Autumn is in your name and you said you like autumn leaves so I thought this gif would be appropriate! <3

Book quote September from Grace and Fury by tracy banghart.

                She balanced on a precipice, as
                  Wind-blown and perilous
                    As a real cliff.

           There was a difference between defiance 
                        And outright rebellion.
                           Could she do this 
               Could she jump over the ledge?

                      Maybe not for herself 
                         But for her sister 
                                    Yes!
