About Me

Hello! I work in cyber/IT communications 👩‍💻. I have two awesome kids and am married. I picked the name CherryBlossomLady because I live on the Potomac River which is lined with cherry blossom trees. 🌸Washington D.C. is the national Capitol of the USA 🇺🇸 and brimming with wonderful museums, galleries and theater opportunities. I love going out to see ANYTHING creative on the stage. Live music🎶, plays and opera, and dance 💃🏻 fill me with joy!

I love to craft, read 📖, play the 🎹 piano, 🎤 sing... I am really drawn to random, bohemian eclectic-ness that just sort of "works" once it is all blended together with embellishments and sentiments. I am a total museum and art 🖼 gallery junkie. I love to travel 🧳 and take family vacations.

Pen paling and scrapbooking are two of my favorite artsy hobbies. I love chocolate, and caramels and Carmel corn... I have a baaaad sweet tooth!!!

I love chatty, artsy letters, where the sender includes a few things to share with the receiver that were used in the letter. The kind of letters you have to sit down with a cup of tea ☕️ at the table to really enjoy, and are worth reading several times to make sure you haven't missed anything... ahhhh. Bliss. 🥰

I really love tea- interesting flavors, oolong, asam, fruity herbals, black, red, green, white, you name it. Fortnum & Mason, Kusmi, David’s Tea and Tea Forte are some of my faves. I have all kinds though. But I really don't appreciate receiving wrinkled, old, regifted tea bags. We Must Respect the Tea! Please only share teas with me that are new, well packaged, and that you love too.

I really, really love Jesus. I have totally given my heart to Christ, and I want my life and interaction with others to be an extension of Our Father's inexhaustible Love and Mercy for all of us. I am trying to be a true, faithful, orthodox Catholic, and I love to share the Holy Rosary and the Veil with friends. I am not perfect, and I make (a lot of) mistakes, but I am trying to meet the challenges of everyday life with honor and integrity, and be what He has called me to be.

Favorite Music

I love all music 🎶 but I am listening to a lot of indie folk mixes on YouTube, bossa nova and jazz while I craft. If it has lyrics that are explicit, then it is a no for me... jazz, orchestras, symphony, opera, a little pop, some classic rock, folk, christian pop, bluegrass, anything with great harmonies... :) I like For King and Country, Hozier, Sara Barielles, IL Volo, Andrea Bocelli, LP, Borns, Third Story — just to give you a feeling for my musical tastes. I Love receiving playlists in happy mail if you are also into these genres. I WILL listen and I Will reply back if the tunes are awesome. 🎵🎶💕❤️🎵🎶

Favorite Movies

Any movie 🎥 that inspires, makes me believe in love, kindness, beauty, good humans— that is my kind of movie 🍿. I also like action, comedies, drama, and mystery, but nothing too scary, no blood and gore, and no demons please. Aaaaas yoooooouuuu wiiiiiisshhhh!!!

👸🏻👰🏼+ 🏴‍☠️ 👨‍🌾 = true 💕love

Likes and Dislikes

Hand made crafts take A LOT OF TIME to make. Time to me, is the most precious commodity we have. I am so honored to get a hand written letter or flip book or pocket letter, collage, drawing... you name it... that i would feel weird putting a lot of conditions on what i can and can't receive. Anything I can't use, I will give away.

🛑 Dislikes: Anything that smells of cigarette smoke, anything Satanic, Voo-doo, witchy, gratuitous gore, hyper sexualized anything, purposefully anti-Christian or anti-Life, etc. I won't be able to use them, so please don’t include these in your swap with me. Thank you!!! ☺️🌻💕🌹🌈


Hand made embellishments and flat multi-matted sentiments and die cuts are something I adore receiving. Nice, unique, stickers for crafting are loved, but reward stickers, not so much.

Any color of metallic Washi tape especial gold or sparkly

Grid dot Journals with quality paper for BuJo-ing

Any wax seals and any color of sealing wax chips

Kusmi Tea and Fortnum & Mason Tea

I'm a sucker for...

BUJO or bullet journaling - LOVE IT!!

Tea time & Victorian flowers💐

The lives of the Saints 😇

Beautiful images of the Virgin Mary (Jesus loved His mom and so do I. 🌹)

Sacred ❤️ Heart of Jesus

Rosaries- handmade or vintage/unique

Typewriters & Poetry 🖋

Birds & Butterflies 🦋 (Vintage or Victorian) Bumble bees or Queen Bee 👑 🐝

Lavender (plant and scent) and Cherry Blossoms

William Morris patterns

Botanicals and apothecary 🌿💐🌹🌸🍀

Watercolor images

Lace & small doilies (white or any color! Yes please!)

Metallic or floral patterned washi

Tea. Tea. Tea. ☕️ Anything tea and tea time/high tea related. Cadbury chocolates. Biscuits/cookies.

Anything mail related 💌📫📝 especially unique stationary sets and notecard sets Or snail mail themed/tea themed stamps/stickers. I do tend to write long letters so if you send/share stationary, I would be over the moon with appreciation if you sent 3-4 sheets of stationary with an Envie. No worries if you can’t!! Just sayin’!!! 😃

About my hosted swaps

John 13:34-35
34. "I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. 35. This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

MY WISH is that we could all go out of our way to make each other feel loved, included, and appreciated, regardless of what we GET from one another.

I love the extras that you sent: the washi tape samples, the notecard, the cards, and the clip.
