Oh hello...

My name is Jessica and I have recently moved to North Texas. During the move our biggest pooch Kaiser was hit by a truck, he has made a full recovery thank goodness. But it's with sadness that I say my chihuahua/terrier Toby went to doggy heaven after 10 years. It happened in mid May and its especially hard in the evenings when we would cuddle. I take comfort in knowing that he was loved and I'll never regret that. Everybody with a pooch that you love like a kid, please give them a kiss for me. It seems that since the move something major has happened every other week. It's been challenging but I have a great support system.

My best friend is my sister-in-law, she and I are crazy for crafts. Papercrafts, crochet, happy mail, vinyl projects and heat transfer vinyl projects. Basically, any excuse to visit Hobby Lobby and Michaels. And Target, lets not forget about Target. Since the move, I have made a big effort to not splurge on crafty items. Moving has made me realize how much I have and need to use.

If ever you have not received a swap from me please message me, I would be happy to resend. If it is a package then I will more than likely have a tracking number with it, just let me know. :) Communication is key.

Bob's Burgers

I'm a nerd for Bob's Burgers. They're a family that cooks specialty burgers, they live above their restaurant, across the street is an Italian restaurant Jimmy Pestos and a stationery store called Yours Truly Stationery. They can break out in song at any moment. It's got everything I need and I love everything about it.

Books & Music

CURRENTLY READING... Absolutely nothing. So if you have any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate them.

Books and authors that I have loved: The Shining, Doctor Sleep, The Stand, anything written by Neil Gaiman, Harry Potter, Outlander series, Gillian Flynn, Liane Moriarty, Ray Bradbury, David Sedaris, Fahrenheit 451, the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, The Never Ending Story. This list could go on. I would also like to mention that I read/listen to books in all forms. Paperback, e-reader, audio. I love a good audio book, I can get twice the house work done without skipping a beat. Who am I kidding, I rarely get housework done.


I really enjoy alternative. If you listen to Sirius radio, my go to stations are Alt Nation and The Spectrum. Love: Cold War Kids, The Black Keys. Travis, 1975, Daft Punk, Death Cab for Cutie, Sondre Lerche, The Shins, Norah Jones, Ben Folds, Vampire Weekend, Florence + The Machine, Kelly Clarkson, M83, Muse, Nouvelle Vague, Spoon, The Killers.

Movies & Television


Real Housewives of New York and Below Deck Mediterranean on Bravo

I watch too much television. I always have. My favorite guilty pleasure is binge watching Bob's Burgers. Linda is still my favorite character. But my favorite of all shows has to be Rectify. There's never been a show like it. I always love a good show recommendation, so bring it!

Other shows I've loved: Happy Endings, Mad Men, Six Feet Under, Breaking Bad, The Killing, Better Call Saul, Downton Abbey, Fargo, Archer, How I Met Your Mother, Transparent, Red Oaks, Outlander, Penny Dreadful, Broadchurch, Sherlock, The Fall, Stranger Things.


I Feel Pretty

I like but am not limited to: independent films, comedies, romantic comedies and dramas.

Some favorite movies include: Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind, Secretary, Step Brothers, Annie Hall, Rushmore, Howl's Moving Castle, There Will Be Blood



  • Bitch Sesh
  • The Sporkful
  • Why Was This Ever Cool
  • Young House Love Has a Podcast
  • Tell 'Em Steve Dave

Crocheting, especially things to give as gifts.

Potted plants, succulents because they're so hardy

I have a regular sized Happy Planner and love to use it! I love decorating it, but my follow through for writing in it is poor.

I love to cook all types of food. Any tried and true crowd (or husband) pleasers are always appreciated.

Recipes for my bread maker and/or pressure cooker.

A thoughtful gift I received recently was a heat press; my husband felt bad watching me trying to put all my weight on a college dorm sized iron.

Like/Love/Want List

  • I would really love recommendations for: books, podcasts and TV shows.

  • GUDETAMA (he gets me, he's my spirit food)

  • Arthur (the PBS kids show)

  • Wonder Woman

  • Ratatouille

  • Stingrays

  • Unicorns! Alpacas! and Rainbows! Oh My!

  • Mermaids

  • unused US postage stamps, (to use not to collect)

  • postcards

  • stickers, does anyone else subscribe to Pipsticks? I want to visit the real life store one day.

  • Kawaii and Jetoy

  • washi tape (even though I love it, I have so much of it I don't know how I will ever use all of it. I mean, I just can't believe how much I was able to collect in just a years time. I went nuts! But of course, don't let that discourage you from sending washi! :D )

  • stationery papers (this is my #1 favorite thing to look for at secondhand stores)

  • handmade items

  • envies; handmade or unique

  • crocheting

  • watercolors, love the look of it

  • animals: cats and dogs mostly. My husband and I fight over who gets to cuddle the cat most nights. When I see animals on the street my voice turns into a high pitched baby squeal and I start adding 's' and 'z's to the ends ofz my words. My closest friends understand that the phenomenon is to be ignored. Strangers have asked me if I'm okay.

  • the ocean or beach. It's soothing.

  • Vietnam, my parents built a house in my Mom's home village and my siblings and I try to visit every few years.

A look at my pinterest boards will give you a nice picture of things that I enjoy. Link is at the top of my profile.



  • Reward/Teacher Stickers

  • black licorice

  • I have an allergy to pistachios.

Useful Info for Swaps

Postcards: I prefer PCs to be sent naked. But if it needs protecting, it's fine to send it in an envie, just use your judgement.

Teas: I like most teas except for chai tea. I'm so sorry Chai Tea, I really wanted to like you, but I just don't.
