My Etsy Favs!
I am a 26 year old gal, who loves letters, friends, swapping and anything glittery I can get my fingers on!
I have 3 dogs, (A French Mastiff, a BullMastiff & an English Bulldog) and a rabbit, and a very loving husband who sticks by me despite all my crazy crafting projects.
I live in a 100 year old restored home, so I like to call Lowe's and Home Depot (or any home renovation store) my second home.
I am an avid reader. I am blessed to have my own 'special' spot at home. A nice comfy chair, surrounded by bookcases that looks out a big picture window. When time allows it, you can find me doing absolutely nothing, relaxing in my big comfy chair, completely lost in a book.
I work full time, so more often than not I complete my swaps in my spare time in the evenings or on a carefree weekend.
I am a huge fan of ANY type of book, any genre, as I am an avid reader. I love to discover new authors, and read other people's recs.
I love older aged books as well, the smell cannot be beat. Feel free to send me these in a swap. If I can't read them, I'll surely recycle them into a swap somehow!
I am an oldie. A good nearly friendship book or SLAM always makes me feel giddy inside.
Books, books and more books!
A handwritten long letter always brings a smile to my face.
Whimsey jars/Whimsey envelopes
Brooches, pins, etc.
Wrapped candy - M&Ms, Jelly Bellys, candy you can't find in the USA.
Charms for necklaces, bracelets, etc.
Random buttons, brads, etc.
Neat little trinkets to fill a matchbox.
Candles. I'm not really picky on the scent, however I don't like anything too heavy floral or musky. I love partylite tealights and votives, any scent!
Makeup, Perfumes, Lotions, etc. (Unless specified)
Dollar store things (I have way too much!)
Used food/opened food/candy
Clothing (unless specified)
I am really not a picky person, nor do I have any allergies when it comes to sweets. I don't really care for dark chocolate, but will try it anyways. I'm bound to find a dark chocolate bar I will like!
I live in the Midwest, so please take into consideration the months of June-September sometimes can get pretty darn hot. I normally try not to send OR receive chocolate (or any candy that can melt) during this time.
Things I will always adore.
Cheese cracker snacks
Any flavored tea, coffee, hot chocolate or mixed drinks (Again, not picky, love to discover new flavors!)
M&Ms (Especially peanut)
Anything grape or cherry flavored
Freezer pops (unfrozen of course!)
Unpopped bags of flavored popcorn (or lots of butter!)
Any type of sweets not native to the USA I am always in for.
A few things in life REALLY get me. No matter how bad of a day I am having, these can always put a smile on my face.
Anything to do with Mastiffs or English Bulldogs. I have a BullMastiff, a Dogue de Bordeaux; French Mastiff (think Hooch from Turner & Hooch) and a new little addition, a baby Bulldog named Meatball. Pictures, bookmarks, postcards, Matchboxes, ATCs, anything and everything Mastiff.
Dog Toys. Now obviously 'I' personally don't go crazy over these, but my dogs sure do. Anything with squeakers, or the dollar store stuffed animals work fine. (I dont feel so bad when they demolish them!) Kong toys work lovely. *Note - Two of my dogs are 100+lbs, so really small tiny toys usually I end up donating to a shelter, mine will choke on them ;/
Teacups & Saucers. I have a very SMALL collection, however I have become smitten.
Handmade bookmarks. Since I love to read, I adore opening up a book and seeing a bookmark somebody took the time to craft for me. I am not picky on what themes I like. I love ALL kinds of bookmarks. Pick something you enjoy to make yourself, something that represents you and your life. I love seeing all the different kinds I get!
Dotee Dolls! I can't make these worth a dickens, but I sure love to collect them!
Wine glasses. I love to enjoy a good glass of wine every now and then.
Things to go in my old house. I love glass doorknobs, old brass keys, etc.
