etsy favorites


  • Married no kids.
  • Not picky or easily offended, so feel free to introduce me to something new.
  • Strive to make you laugh and feel great even if just for a moment. I'm an oddball and tend to think outside the box. If I get it wrong please let me know.
  • Scottish terrier lover and pet rescue supporter.
  • My new favorite thing in the world is the movie Isle of Dogs. I could write paragraphs gushing my love for it.


  • Mail art, flat stickers, postcards(handmade ok), labels, address labels, postage stamps, postalettes, and washi samples.
  • Anything handmade or decorated by you. Atc, pocket letter, inchies, flip books, stuffies, pins, really anything.
  • Lists, jokes, poems, haiku, limericks.
  • Instapot and slow cooker recipes.
  • Vintage stationery 1960s - 80s.
  • Bright and natural colors.
  • recycled and partially used items

Anything with an animal 💜:

  • Scottish Terriers.
  • Rescued pets and their stories.
  • Mega fauna - e.g. Woolly Mammoth, Saber tooth tigers, giant sloths.
  • Donkeys, goats, and pigs.
  • Fish and other sea life, horseshoe crabs.
  • Woodland creatures real or imagined.
  • Put a bird on it: Flamingos, barn swallows, woodpeckers, crows, turkeys, birds of prey.

  • Art deco and nouveau.
  • Modern art, turn me on to an artist you love.

  • Mid century architecture and furniture.
  • Industrial, steampunk, space, and scientific themes
  • Religious art, icons, and shrines.


  • Regional culture, dialect, ghost stories, treats, and recipes.

Food and travel:

  • I like to imagine myself as one of those majestic women in an outdoor catalog, dressed in cool gear, one with nature, and effortlessly hiking up a mountain. I'm more likely to trip in the parking lot before I even get to the trail.

Wes Anderson films are so good that I want to eat them.

This being said, you'll have my undying love if you send something related to his movies.

Favorite Books

Always reading something and it varies greatly, could be science fiction, fantasy, or historical fiction. Biography, Ted talks(don't know where to put these), or old childrens science textbooks.

I HIGHLY recommend: 3/24/17 -The fifteen lives of Harry August by Claire North.
-The Borgias have been fascinating me lately, it's amazing that we have the details of these people's lives that lived so long ago. I get exhausted just thinking about their daily lives.

Favorite Music

Spotify is on most of the day. Frequently Go to: 80s alternative, Wilco, The Who, Monsters of folk, Jack White, and love finding new music!

Favorite Crafts

Anything handmade by you is greatly loved and appreciated, no matter your skill level.

I enjoy making papercrafts: pocket letters, postcards, atcs, and mail art. I just haven't felt very crafty lately so haven't been joining those types of swaps. I do continue to buy and hoard supplies of course.

I really love needle felting, but am allergic to the wool:(

Thanks for reading. Have a great day!
