A little about myself & family

UPDATE 1-11-19 We have temporarily had to leave our home due to a furnace issue so I may not be able to rate as quick due to having to go by and pick my mail up when I can. Bear with me as I WILL rate you just may be a few days later.

(updated 1/19) I am a SAHM of three. Two boys 18 & 14 and life's "little" surprise my 4yr old daughter. My oldest Coleton loves music and can play several instruments also sings at competition level. Is in the school chorale and has placed in several regional contests. My middle son is my comedian. Loves to make everyone laugh. He is all about video games and wrestling. My baby Gracelyn definitely keeps me busy and is a DIVA. Loves her jewelry, Barbies and painting her nails.

Furry Family

We have three cats Jaspurr an orange tabby, Squibby a LARGE white and gray cat and Tinker Puss my hand raised bottle fed baby a gray tabby ( with the fluffiest tail I've ever seen lol maybe his daddy was a skunk) .Layla a Chorkie ( Chihuahua/ Yorkie mix) , Miss Elleanor(Elli) & Oliver(Ollie) our ferrets, and two hermit crabs Bob and Sharky.

I collect Hello Kitty, Fairies( not Tinkerbell), used stamps, washi tape( somewhat of a hoarder ), & anything strange or odd ( think bones, mummified items/animals, teeth etc Lol)

I love crafting, drawing , painting, reading(horror & romance mostly), gardening, photography, hiking, and spending time with my awesome kids.

I also pen pal and have been for 10 years. It is a wonderful way to truly "see" the world thru another's eyes and truely makes you realize the world is bigger than your hometown.

*My pet peeves are liars, scammers, and rude people.

Favorite Crafts

Love anything that can be made but my favorites are pocket letters, atcs, stamping, jewelry, tutus, bows, tags and any paper crafts.

My favorite craft supplies would be die cuts, washi, stickers, cute paper, stamps ( love any and all but the Gorjuss, Besties, and Prima doll stamps are my #1 favs). I really haven't met a medium or technique yet I refuse to try out.

** If interested in swapping any type of stamped images just msg me.

Likes and Dislikes

Just a few ideas but even my dislikes are appreciated and used somehow ๐Ÿ˜Š

Likes: Washi tape๐Ÿ˜ However most $ Tree and ALL decos(plastic tape)are NOT washi and I do not use them. Also prefer a design not solid or dots, stripes ect.Samples are AWESOME I have a large shoebox organized by theme just for them.

Die cuts/ paper punches ๐Ÿ˜finally got a machine but not alot of dies so still love to receive

Alice in Wonderland ( original, Disney, Tim Burton I love them all)

Scrapbook paper (at least 3x3 inches)

Decorative napkins( just the top sheet that's decorated is fine and saves postage)

Atc supplies

Atc sleeves

Kawaii stickers/stationery

State postcards ( haven't quite got all 50)

Stamped images ๐Ÿ˜( love anything)

Halloween anything that's cute, scary, gory doesn't matter love it all.

Vocaloid anything๐Ÿ˜( my son is obsessed)

Barbie clothes, LOL ( my daughter is obsessed)

Anything Zombie/ WWE ( my other son yep obsessed lol)

Shaped brad or paperclips

Embossing powder fine to put a little in a bag just let me know what it is. Lol received several unknown white (and a blk )powdered bags.

Coffee, bee, mermaid, the sea, & any unusual craft supplies (paper, stickers,ect)


I love Hello Kitty(have a HUGE collectionof everything imaginable)however unless it's something really unique I don't need it as I'm running out of room

Book pages ( I already have so many)

Anything edible(candy, teas, ect) will be TRASHED only exception is foreign candy( my oldest will love).It's not a you thing but a me thing

Page tabs( don't use)


Beads( I have TONS)

Sticky notes( don't use )

Owls( not crazy about them)

Mustaches ( don't get why so many like them)

Cut up "trash" (ex.cut up Boxes, bags, food labels ect.), menus, business cards etc. I don't "junk journal" & have no use for it

Magazine cutouts don't really use them.

Anything with a cricket/grasshopper( seriously lol I have a weird phobia of them even images creep me out๐Ÿ˜จ

Themes I like/dislike

Gothic/ Creepy/ just plain Odd

Pokemon ( favs Mimikyu, Lapras, Togetic, any of the new Pokemon)

Before leaving feedback

***As a pen pal I know mail is ALWAYS unpredictable if you do not receive please let me know I will resend. I will also msg you and see if you received after a certain amount of time. Also if you need/want proof I always take pics of stamped envelope ( or tracking # if it needed it) that I can email you.

If ANY mail sent to you has postage due PLEASE let me know. I pay postage at least once a week on swaps I RECEIVE from others so I know how tedious and expensive it can be.

No longer have a smoker in the household. I did keep my swap stuff in containers and away from it as much as possible however I still can't guarantee no smoke smell as something might slip by me very sorry if it does ๐Ÿ˜”

*** I always rate within a day or two of receiving however I'm not so quick to remember to go back and add a ty & msg to your rate if I didn't when I rated. Doesn't mean I am not THANKFUL or didn't LOVE it. Just means I'm human and forgot as I don't always have the time to do it when I leave a rating.So don't get your feelings/and or pride hurt if you get a silent 5 with or without a heart๐Ÿ˜™

I am VERY understanding about swaps. If you are having problems let me KNOW. Such as but NOT LIMITED TO:

  • Loss of job/family/friends/pet/ your sanity

  • Forgot accidentally /or on purpose

  • Moving/moved/left country

  • PO Black hole swallowed it ( it happens it happens a lot)

  • PO lost/stole/burnt it to appease the Goddess of Postage

  • Mailman/woman/idiot has kept/stole/lost it

  • Going to be a day/week/month/year late sending

  • Just didn't feel like and/or care about doing it yet

  • Abducted by aliens and haven't been back to Earth because you were forced to marry the Prince of Uranus

***No matter the reason just please let me KNOW and I promise I won't rate down. I will WORK with you! HOWEVER if you ignore me and my msgs, don't communicate, don't keep up with YOUR end of the swap, and/or don't uphold your promise to me than I WILL NOT change anything about my rating so please save time and don't ask me too.

RiverTopanga rated for BIRTHDAY ATC on Dec 9, 2018
Comment: Hi Crystal! Thank you so much for the thoughtful birthday card and the absolutely beautiful ATC you created! What a wonderful depiction of holly! You are talented! I adore it! Thank you also for putting Happy Birthday on it... otherwise some people might think it is a Christmas ATC. I can totally understand your sons hating their birthdays... I feel the same way. We get forgotten among all the holiday hustle and bustle. Tell them both I wish them a Very Happy Birthday, and I commiserate with them :-) I am going to display this beautiful ATC on my mantle for my birthday which is on Tuesday. Thank you so much! :-) PS: I love the little snowflakes, and bought 2 containers a few years ago at Target.. thank you for helping me replenish my stash of them :-) Did they even sell them this year?? :-) <3 :-) <3
