About Me

If there is an issue with a swap from me, please message me before rating a 1 or 3.

Hey guys! So happy to be here swapping with all you fine humans =] My name is Laura, and I'm 28. I was born and raised in the Bay Area of California (about an hour south of San Francisco). I moved out of my hometown last year and since then, I’ve lived in two different cities in the Sacramento, CA area. We are planning to relocate again next spring, destination unknown. Always on the move now, I guess!

Besides swapping , I enjoy going to the dog park and on walks in nature with my husky Andy, eating out at my favorite restaurants and coffee shops (and discovering new ones!), and scavenging for treasures at thrift stores. I just got back into reading. I mainly read mystery/suspense, thriller , and crime novels.( I would love any recommendations!). Since I was a little girl I’ve been into baking, but recently I’ve been trying to cook more, too. I would be happy to swap recipes and inspiration!

Now, to give you some ideas for what to send me in swaps ... Here are some collections I am working on. *Postcards: I like my Pc's sent in an envelope (even if swap calls for naked, I would prefer this ) ! I know I am in the minority on this one, but it’s made me sad too many times when a card shows up that I love but it has gotten ripped or scuffed all up by those brutal post office machines!) I also like to be able to use the postage stamps from the envie for crafting .thanks so much! =]

like single view cards. Both touristy or non-touristy (particularly if they relate to my list of favorite themes below).

I have begun to collect state PCs, either map ones, or if it has the name of the state on front. so far i already have : maine (thats it so far! help me out lol)

*i would love to receive cute iron -on patches, necklaces ( just not super tight , I like chokers only if there’s the extended chain.. or else I tend to feel like I’m , y’know, choking ) I love just cool pendants too if you don’t have the chain it’s okay. I also like bracelets ( just not the bangle ones, I usually can’t squeeze my hand through them )

  • used (or new) postage stamps: I am planning to make a collage out of them once I have enough of them. It's gonna look fabulous! I love international stamps, old/vintage stamps from anywhere..but also, really any interesting, unique, beautiful postage stamps in general!!!

*Elongated/pressed pennies!!!

*Fridge magnets: touristy or related to my list of interests

  • die cuts

  • rubber stamps

Other things I’d love to receive: * I just got into making ATCs so supplies would be appreciated! I also love receiving atcs and handmade cards, envelopes, etc (but only if they are made by you, please.) *rubber stamps *die cuts * beautiful/cool/funny/unique/vintage images from magazines, books, children’s books, etc , particularly (if they are related to my list of interests) *funny/cute comic clippings(my favorites are lio and mutts)

Things I enjoy: *favorite color is turquoise *the beach, ocean, and anything "costal" *memaids *narwhals (unicorns of the sea! =] ) *any marine/ocean life, such as octopus, manatees, sea otters, seahorses, jellyfish, sea turtles, orcas... etc, etc!! just no sharks please)
*anything related to our beautiful moon, it has a special significance to me. (Moon phase stuff is awesome).
*constellations, nebula, anything "galaxy" ( I don’t believe in astrology though, so I don’t particularly care about star signs.) *unicorns *Holland Lop and Lionhead rabbits.. as a teen I raised and showed these breeds *Ancient Egyptian *dia de Los muertos * vintage pin up girls *black&white photography *old architecture *castles *tie dye and ombré *national parks, museums, zoos, aquariums *I usually find things pertaining to mythology intriguing *If you have a talent in calligraphy or hand-lettering, I’d love to see it. maybe it’ll finally inspire me to try to learn it myself)! *dreamcatchers/native american *most exotic animals. My favorite birds are peacocks and flamingos. I love Woodland animals such as wolves, owls, foxes. Jungle animals like giraffes, elephants, lions, tigers .. (don’t like bears so much after watching the renevant haha), * cacti/succulents *kawaii , “cute” things (but not hello kitty or children’s cartoon characters) * gardening themed ... especially featuring ladybugs, sunflowers, or tomatoes!
*cute circus and carnival stuff.. no creepy clowns though, please ! Haha ) * Harry Potter *nighmare before Christmas *favorite Disney princesses: Ariel-Little Mermaid, rapunzel-Tangled, belle-Beauty and the Beast

Please don't send me..

I'm gonna include this list, because I would hate for you to spend your time and postage sending me something I wouldn't truly enjoy!

*tea bags/any food *religious stuff , *multi view postcards
*anything with a strong scent, i.e. perfumey or cologney types of things...gives me a headache * I don't use bookmarks *reward stickers * sequins, loose glitter, or confetti *fabric pieces - I don’t know what to do with them *pencils *erasers *shopping list pads

Thank you for the Christmas card and long note, that's so sweet of you. :o) And kudos to you and Andy for the work you do together! I'm hanging onto your address, as I'll be going through my stamps this winter, and may be able to send you some more. I hope the past few days have been wonderful for you! Stay warm! ;oP
