About Me

Jan. 8th, 2020 I am slowly making my way back into swapping, the mail issues seem to be getting better and im ready to swap :)

Nov. 9th, 2019: Today I have received a lot of swaps that were sent out weeks ago from partners as well as Tags and RAKs. I believe I have rated and commented on all outstandings, but please if you feel you should have been rated by now send me a message so we can figure it out :)

Nov. 8th, 2019: Due to the mail issues that are happening, I have decided to take a short break. Until I can figure out why my swaps keep getting returned, I don't feel it is safe to put the time and effort into my swap for it not to reach the destination on time. Most of you are very understanding and I appreciate it, but it's not fair to my partners. I'm terribly disappointed that is has to be this way. I will accept the appropriate ratings from my partner as I know it is out of my hands and it doesn't reflect me personally. With that said, I will still check Swap-Bot. If you happen to tag me in a thread please message me so I can get it to you. I will still rate as I receive, and let you know when I receive tags or what not as well as send my last swaps in a timely manner. Thanks so much for the understanding and know I will be back :)

Nov. 3rd, 2019: I am very annoyed that today I went out to my mailbox to find that my swaps are being returned to me. They do not say "Postage Due", not are they improperly packaged. They were just sitting in my mailbox. Now I am messaging all my partners I have sent to in the last week to let them know. I have been having problems with the postal service here for a couple of months, but not like this. I guess I will have to make the trip to the PO from now on to ensure my swaps will make it to their destination. So sorry for any inconvenience this has caused, but please know I would never flake on my swaps. With that being said, I understand they will be late and will accept the rating that you see fit. Thanks for understanding!

I am married with no kids, but we have two 11lb fur babies, Lily is 8 & Marshall is 2. I also have 6 nieces and 5 nephews whom I love as if they were my own.

I am a pretty easy going gal that loves simplicity in life. I am not easily offended and have a weird sense of humor :) I have a love for the desert as I prefer to stay away from the cold and snowy winters. I love to learn new things and try to learn at least 2 new things a day.I try my best everyday to live life to the fullest.

My favorite word is Onomatopoeia

I am from Ohio, but met my husband in Death Valley and now we reside in Arizona. I love to hike and enjoy nature's beauty as much as possible.

I am a supporter of the LGBTQ+ community and think that we should all be able to love who we want as well as be able to express and be who we want.

I LOVE to play board and card games. A few favorites are:

Magic: The Gathering

D&D

Risk

Catan

Cards Against Humanity

Video games are my next favorite. I am a Zelda fan, but I also enjoy the Fable games and the Alice games (which originated as a pc game).

I am a Dutch Bros lover and ALS supporter. We lost my mother in law in 2013 to ALS, so I support things that support this cause. I participate in the Drink One for Dane day every year as well as getting their stickers on the 1st of every month. It's an addiction 😂 and their drinks are so delicious!

Favorite Music

I love music! I will listen to most anything aside from gospel and jazz.

I am a 90's child so most of the music I listen to is from the 80's and 90's. I really do not care for most of the main stream music these days.

I do not favor a specific genre just good music.

Favorite Books

I LOVE BOOKS!

I am an avid reader who will sit down with a good book and not get up until I am finished. The longest I have spent on a book in one sitting was 19 hrs. I get so lost in the story sometimes times slips away.

I like to read mysteries, thrillers and suspense. I am finding though that my likes are broadening. Yes, I read the Twilight books. I really like to read the book before the movie if available.

I loved The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and Inferno......I enjoyed the books much more than the movies, but they were still good.

My current book series is The Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward. I am on the 7th book now, such a great series!

I also enjoy reading biographies and autobiographies and learning about the people, events, or places :)

I am also a big fan of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. I have most of them in my collection as well. I love to read the inspirational stories and know that things can get better.

Favorite Movies

I absolutely love musicals, they are my favorite to watch. Sweeney Todd, Rent, Into the Woods and Les Miserables are some of my favorites.

I also enjoy suspenseful/psychological thrillers.

HOCUS POCUS

LOVE Disney!

I enjoy older Disney movies more than some of the newer ones, but most of them are good. Mary Poppins is my absolute favorite!

I am a fan of the Marvel Universe.

Tim Burton is amazing, love everything about him!

I loved Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, Twilight, & The Hunger Games :)

Favorite Television

I do not watch a lot of television these days, but I am never opposed to watching a series on Netflix.

A few that I have enjoyed are:

The Magicians

Criminal Minds

Shameless

American Horror Story

Once Upon a Time

Friends

The Chilling Adventure of Sabrina

Disenchantment

There are so many more, but those are some that I could watch over and over :)

I am a fan of Joss Whedon's Buffy, Angel, and Firefly. I have watched each of these all the way through multiple times.

I'm a huge fan of The Simpson's, they will always remind me of my childhood.

I also like older shows like The Golden Girls, I Dream of Jeannie, Bewitched and I Love Lucy.

I like to watch Documentaries, sometimes they just fascinate me.

I am a REALITY SHOW addict! I love MOST, not all, reality TV shows. I have seen A LOT of them 😁

Favorite Crafts

I am not as crafty as I would like to be, but I really enjoy scrapbooking and smashbooking. I carry at least 1 smashbook with me everywhere I go just in case I find the perfect thing to go into it.

I also love to color in adult coloring books. I have 5 of the Color Me Your Way books, Disney Thomas Kinkade book, Disney Villains, and a couple 90's Nickelodeon books. I find it very relaxing.

I also collect gift cards with no monetary value. I have a smashbook just for them :)

9/10/19: I am get a little more crafty and dabbling in Pocket Letters and ATC's. So much fun!

LOOKING FOR:

I am looking for something (postcard, magnet, sticker, etc...) from the 2017 Total Eclipse. It just so happens that it was on my birthday (Aug. 21st) and the memorabilia that I did have unfortunately got ruined. If you have anything you are willing to part with, I would be ever so grateful :)

No Thank You

Dislikes:

Anything hateful or violent

Loose Glitter (it's ALWAYS stuck to something)

Black Licorice

Rhubarb

ALLERGIES:

Shellfish (I eat no seafood or fish)

Bees

Fears

Although I know they are completely irrational, I would ask to please refrain from sending anything with COTTON BALLS or CHUCKY (the killer doll). I know it seems ridiculous, but these have been things I have dealt with most of my life.

I will appreciate and love anything that is sent to me so please do not worry about if it I will. I was always taught it's the thought that matters more than what you receive ☺️

Mailing:

I usually put my swaps out into the mail box a block from my house, I do not take them to a PO unless I am around there. That being said unless it is a weekend, I will drop my swaps off after 4pm. They will be picked up the following day at 3pm and post marked for the day after (1-2 days after marked sent).

IF you do not receive a swap from me PLEASE let me know. I will make it right, but it's a little unfair to wait a month to tell me and then threaten a low rating.

I rate as soon as I receive a swap, please have the courtesy to do the same.

Comment: Yay I got it! Did you by chance put a paperclip on the bottom right of the envelope? There was a paperclip on the bottom right on the outside of the envelope! Just sitting there! 😅This is fabulous, I LOVE the washi, it's unlike any i've ever seen! Thank you for all your time and effort and communicating! And yes, sadly tape over stamps is a nono, cause the machine can't cancel them. Which I wish wasn't the case, because I go through a glue stick a week attaching my vintage ones when I wish I could instead just tape them. Anyway! Thank you again :) 💖👻
Response: Took long enough lol. I am so happy that you like it. The Washi is from the Tim Holtz Halloween collection, I thought it was different :) How random that a paper clip was on the envelope, I did not put it there 😂 Now I know for the future about the tape. You are most welcome. Thank you kindly for the rating and for your patience and understanding ♥️

Comment: I loved the mini Halloween pocket letter you made for me! And, thank you for the extras! You had several features that I loved and I will have to "borrow" and use on my future projects. I loved the mini shaker circle, the tab at the top of the pocket, and the sequin decorated wood witch. Thank you again!
Response: Your are most welcome, I am so happy you like it! Thank you for the kind rating as well as your patience and understanding ♥️
