About Me

::Fall favorites:: Good quality socks, candles and wax melts. Tea (please see preferences below), weight watcher friendly snacks-smart sweets, alani etc., Fall stickers, stationery, and envelopes. Unused postage. Mail art kit - everything needed to decorate an envelope.

I'm 36 and live in Olympia, WA; moved here in February '15 from Ohio. I suppose it's worth mentioning that I was recently diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. I also have chronic pain, fibromyalgia, chronic migraines, and mismanaged (not my fault) hypothyroidism so I often don't feel very well. Well, most everything is not managed because I am poor and have crappy insurance. But I try to make the most of it.

I enjoy snail mailing, postcrossing, spending time with dogs, watching tv and movies, listening to music, singing in community choirs, Zumba & working out, hiking, gardening, and much more.


  • making zines (never done)
  • brush lettering (never done)
  • making a junk journal (never done)
  • exploring teas.. So far my faves are (specifics): Pickwick Winter's Glow, Private Selection sweet cinnamon spice herbal tea, Salada green tea pineapple mango, twinnings chai, marketspice strawberry and cream, stash breakfast in paris, chai teas, peach teas, BIGELOW WHITE CHOCOLATE OBSESSION (don't think this is sold anywhere, but it's like my favorite of the 2 bags I've ever enjoyed). Prefer flavored teas to plain teas.. fruit, spiced, sweet, caffeine and herbal, definitely do not like black tea plain
  • working on my mental & physical health as I have many chronic illnesses. (Currently)
  • loom knitting (not active during "the lost year")

note: - I sometimes reuse packaging. - I have never flaked. Please message me if for some reason you have not received something from me before you rate, so I can make it right - When I mail my swaps that generally do not need to be handled by the PO, I will put them in my outgoing mailbox. So, the postmark will be placed the next day after I have mailed it. As soon as I drop the swap in the mailbox I mark send. So the postmark doesn't match with my "sent by" date.

-mail art kit - tea - liberty of london stationery items & or other decor - things from other countries or where you live, not necessarily things that have your country/state name..more like cultural items or stickers from where you're from. or if you have other stationery or odds and ends from other countries. (hope that made sense!) - any item in the theme section above - paint by number for adults, or other similar by number project. - made in the USA dog treats - unused forever stamps, also mint older stamps, or international postage stamps. - target, amazon, Dutch brothers, michael's gift cards - unique magnets - Cute Salt & Pepper Shakers

Favorite Crafts

Most of these I haven't done in a long time, but I'd still enjoy them.

  • Photography
  • acrylic painting
  • gelli plate printing
  • embroidery
  • paper crafting snail mail items
  • would love to learn needle felting
  • would love to learn watercolors
  • collage
  • latch hooking
  • coloring
  • sticker slapping


Things I have no use for:

  • washi tape samples
  • paper scraps (I have plenty already)
  • recipe cards
  • dollar store or dollar section sticky paper pads (they never stick for me, if all else fails I could use them for address labels..)
  • Buttons.
  • Ribbon.
  • Makeup.
  • Lipstick.
  • Things that smell of smoke.
  • Bracelets.
  • Touristy postcards, there are a few series that I enjoy, however and I need to get the actual names :D
  • Political Items.
  • Religious Items.
  • Books.
  • Anything racist or hateful.
  • Dark Themed Items.
  • Skulls.
  • Broken things.
  • Junk Mail.
  • Clowns.
  • Scary/Horror movies and other things.
  • Stuffed Animals, but handmade ones are OKAY.
  • Bugs (real or pictures) butterflies, dragonflies, lady bugs, caterpillars, bees, etc are OK. Hate spiders, and certain beetle type bugs.
  • Homemade Food Items.
  • Face care items that contain fragrance/parfum and lanolin.
  • Dolls, spiders, certain bugs..I'm sorry they creep me out. However, I like Matryoshka nesting dolls or other dolls that do NOT look realistic, and themed items.
  • Reward/Teacher stickers.
  • Holiday items or stickers on non-holidays..Though I don't mind holiday stickers on or around current holidays.
  • Dollar Store paper and plastic crap.
  • Good 'n' Plenty or black licorice candy.
  • Jewelry that is not nickel free.
  • Plain colored pens like blue black red or freebie pens.

If you send me something I don't like I will not lower your rating unless it does not meet the swap guidelines. I will give it to someone else.

Favorite Music

I'm often listening to 90s pop, modern eclectic, indie folk, and music no one has heard of... I've listed a several people and bands here...
