About Me

Hellllooooo! 🤪

While I'm new to swap bot, I've been around in the swapping world for almost two decades. Oh my gosh, that makes me sound so old! LOL I was on/owned several yahoogroups back in the day where I would host many ATC and deco swaps.

I'm big into ATCs, and a variety of other arts (I'm kind of a Jill of All Trades), and I'd love to try pocket letters as I've been reading a little bit more about them and I'm really fascinated with them.

I work in both the mental health & education field as well as the arts. I run two programs. One is an arts-based recovery program for people with lived experience of mental health issues. The other is one where I provide mental health and stigma education to high school students and communities and train people with lived experience to share their stories and experiences. They're both very rewarding careers not only as a professional but as a peer.

I tend to be a very generous person and always put my heart into everything that I do and make. I love lots of things: deer, foxes, cats... Animals in general! Tea of all varieties, stickers, all things Japanese -- I'm learning Hiragana right now, travel, psychology, FLOW magazine, collecting paper/stationery, things that are quirky, natural history, making my home feel cozy, milk chocolate, caramel/butterscotch, painting, clay work, being creative and making things, wrapping and giving gifts, and so much more! If you'd like to know more, just let me know!
