A little about myself & family

(updated 8/18) I am a SAHM of three. Two boys 17 & 13 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 😊

Likes: Washi tape😍 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 😍

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 😍( love anything)

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

postage stamps used & new ( international & USA)

Anything with Orcas😍( Killer whales) & Penguins

Anything Egyptian themed or actual photos😍😍😍

Foreign coins/bills ( heck if you REALLY want to send USA ones I'm good with that tooπŸ˜‰)

Vocaloid anything😍( my son is obsessed)

Barbie clothes ( 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 out😨

Themes I like/dislike

Just a few things I like if you want to be nosey like me and look through your partners profile:

Themes I love for almost any swap:





Gothic/ Creepy/ just plain Odd

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

Hello Kitty

Fairies ( except Tinkerbell/Disney)

Halloween ( all year long)







Hand drawn/hand painted

Alice in Wonderland

**** DISLIKES ****

Neon colors

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.

I am in a smoking household. I do keep my swap stuff in containers and away from it as much as possible however I can't guarantee no smoke smell very sorry πŸ˜”

*** 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 heartπŸ˜™

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/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.

turtles27 rated for Halloween Pocket Letter on Oct 19, 2018
Comment: Thank you for the great pocket letter and goodies! I completely understand the frustration with mother nature. The past two years hurricanes came through here and knockedvmy power out for a week each. During prime crafting season!!!! I was so frustrated I couldn't join swaps. Then I worried about mail delivery. Have a happy Halloween!!
Gobarb rated for USATC: Halloween ATC Swap on Oct 14, 2018
Comment: Hi Chrystal. I really like the Halloween ATC that you made for me. Did you do it all by hand or was it stamped? Either way, you did a great job. Thank you...
Response: Honestly do not remember what I sent Lol. Maybe the cauldron? If so yes I drew it if not I put my initials(CS) in the corner of almost everything I draw so you can look for that :) So glad you enjoyed it.

Comment: Great, great washi; especially love the cupcake one, too awesome! Thanks for the handmade card and other stickers too!
Comment: Love them both! She is freakin' awesome! The rooster doesn't exactly look like a zombie but it certainly made me laugh. Maybe if you opened his head and showed his brains too. They are both really wonderful and I love your artwork, you're very talented. Thank you for the zombies.
