About Me

update I’ve received messages from a couple people saying my swaps have been lost in the mail. Because this hasn’t happened to me before but has happened multiple times recently I plan to step back a bit. I’ve also had my mail put into neighbors mail boxes recently so I think the issues are coming from my local post office & mail person. Hopefully time will help the situation. If you haven’t received a swap or a rating please continue to let me know!

I have spent the majority of my teenage & young adult years working with children & teens. Currently, I work with elderly people. Every job I find myself loving involves getting to know people on a personal level. If I can add crafting into the mix, even better! I have to feel like I am making a positive difference in peoples lives or I'm not going to keep showing up to work, so that's what I do! Even though I work with people, I am a true introvert and am thoroughly drained after work. Art, crafting, writing, etc helps me recharge.

I have moved more times than I can count at this point. I have lived in 3 countries & 7 US states and I'm sure these numbers will go up. I love traveling and exploring new places. My dream is to one day be able to live outside of the US permanently. We're on the way to achieving that goal down the road.

I do not believe in doing swaps that I won't enjoy just to up my number of swaps completed so I end up not joining too many. When I do find swaps that look like fun I try to put my all into it.

Please let me know if my swap hasn't arrived after some time! I only press sent once I've dropped it in the mailbox.

I rate soon after I get it in my mail box. If you have not gotten a rating from me message me and we can work it out. I will make contact before I give you a 1, it's only fair.

If you are unsure if I'll like something you want to send feel free to ask! :]

Favorite Books

I read a lot of horror, romance, manga and contemporary books. I love twists and turns, if I can’t predict the end it’s a fantastic thriller. I love hard subjects, taboos and feeling uncomfortable while I read. I want a book to have an emotional effect on me. Sometimes I just need a really terribly written teen romance novel though. I admit it. I own quite a few that are basically the same story in different locations and I love them all. To be fair, I did buy them when I was a teen.

Recently enjoyed: The Good Daughter Dig The Couple Next Door Stolen

Favorite Manga: Sailor Moon Black Bird Ibitsu

Favorite Movies

Rocky Horror Picture Show Sleepy Hollow Blades of Glory @SuicideRoom Little Nicky Pans Labyrinthine Constantine Space Jam

Dislikes

Comment: Thanks for this absolutely gorgeous swap! I had to apply some liberal TLC to the envie, both front and back, but it still is beautiful. You may want to put your next one in a clear envelope. Thanks too for all the yellow and gold extras! They will be fun to use in future swaps! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

~ Profile Comment Swap ~

Hi there, Krystal, and sorry in advance! I don't like being late for my swaps, even this one that sounded 'easy' at first, but ended up being a little crazy for me to complete it properly... I blame college!

Wow, you've got here a pretty well-filled profile, and you're a recent user! I would comment every little thing I see here, but this would turn into a hundred pages letter, so I better just mention my favorites ^-^

You're a writer and want to follow the Psychology carrer- wait, I need a moment, this is absolutely awesome! What's your novel about? I'm also writing some stuff, but sadly I haven't got enough time to them recently, as college is taking all my time.

And what about your first swaps, did you got any supercute kawaii things? ♥_♥

High-waisted skirts -- I would wear them everyday, but the cold weather won't let me. Hope your weather let you show your pretty skirts around at anytime you want to!

Keep the good swapping! Cheers from Brasil :D
