About Me


I enjoy being creative and I like to express my creativity through mixed media art journaling, knitting, sewing, and all sorts of fun crafting projects. I even host an occasional craft party.

I pay close attention to details and can appreciate the time and effort that someone puts into what they create.

LIKES: watercolors, stationary, hand-written letters, art journals, stickers, washi tape, tags, envelopes, pretty papers, ephemera, happy mail, ribbon, tiny things, small paper bags, small envelopes, and vintage circus/carnival ephemera.

DISLIKES: Political things. Religious things. Cat things (Halloween cats are an exception). Coffee. Reward stickers. Things that smell of cigarette smoke.

Favorite Crafts

I really enjoy working in my mixed media art journal, watercolor, sewing, painting, knitting, making bath and body products (bath bombs, bath milks etc.), and doing crafty things with pretty papers. I like to explore most things creative, or try it at least once.

I Am Super Excited About...

MAIL ART!!! Decorated happy mail envelopes and packages make me smile.

I love color, I don't have a favorite color. I can appreciate the graphics of black and white together too. I love patterns. I get excited about decorating the pages of my planner with stickers and colorful pens; functional things can be pretty and colorful too! I get super excited about pretty stationary.

I am super excited about documentaries, so if you can recommend one or two that would be great.

Mailing and Rating Practices

FROM YOU TO ME: If you send me something that is bigger than a standard size envelope (and it is not in a box), please write "DO NOT BEND" on the envelope. My Post Office is pretty good about handling items carefully, however I don't want to chance anything being ruined in the mailing process.

Please write your swap-bot username and the name of the swap on a note and place it on the INSIDE of the envelope or package.

Please do not send loose leaf tea.

Please RATE UPON RECEIPT of a swap. Not rating a swap is inconsiderate.


FROM ME TO YOU: I am reliable with meeting mailing deadlines etc., so if you have not received something from me please let me know. I want everyone that I swap with to be happy and I want all swap interactions to be successful. So please communicate with me.

I will and am committed to rate all received swaps.

Tea Time

I am definitely someone who loves tea! I like rooibos, mint, pomegranate, and jasmine tea... to name a few. I am definitely open to trying other flavors.

If you would like to include tea in any parcel or letter that you send me, please make sure that it is in a sealed (by the manufacturer) pouch and not loose leaf tea.

Comment: Hilarious. I'm also in a swap called 'Adulting is Hard' I really thought your items were pick me ups to deal with adulthood, until I read the piece. Thank you for the items. I should do more self-pampering, I haven't used any of the items you sent minus the hand wipes haha
Response: You’re welcome. They are things I use constantly and I hope you will use them and maybe some of them will become your favorites too and encourage you to treat yourself to more pampering. Happy swapping 💌
