About Me

6/24/2017- Finally in our long term home! Can't wait to start swapping again! We moved twice this year so I took a swapping break to sell our house and move to our new state.

I am a Free Range Librarian in between jobs. Being a librarian is one of the coolest jobs in the world! I can't wait to find a new library to call home.


I am married with 3 parakeets as pets. They keep me entertained with their antics. Their names are Louie, Sherlock, and Ghost. We lost our sweet Edgar Poe August 23rd, 2017. He was my buddy and I miss him terribly.

I am navigating my 30's and loving it. My hubby and I travel as much as we can and live life to the fullest.

I love crafting especially with felt and buttons, sewing skirts, making jewelry and geeky crafts. I also am a pottery/ceramic student at a shop in our town. I have a FB page called: Rebel Clay and Geekery.

If you have not received something from me please let me know asap so I can send again. I will rate as soon as I can, usually that day or the next. If for some reason I have not rated you please let me know.

Favorite Books

I love reading fantasy and science fiction books. I am a big reader of YA books because of my job and also because most of them are better than adult fiction.

YA Authors that I love: Jessica Day George Shannon Hale Cherie Priest Rae Carson Renee Ahdieh William Ritter John Flanagan

I also like graphic novels, comics, historical fiction, and steampunk.


Romance- I'm just not a fan of 100% romance novels. Nor am I a fan of smut.

Horror- I will read it now and again but I don't particularly care for graphic violence.


Stationery/Postcards -

  • I love any kind of stationery as long as it doesn't contain nudity.

  • I collect fun cards with Owls, dragons, library themes, Space, geeky, book illustrations and fairy's.

Favorite Crafts


  • I love to cross stitch. My favorite patterns are usually geeky in nature. I can always use more floss of any color and needles.


  • I make fun things for my friends kids and myself. I love all kinds of fabric except Disney prints. I also like lace and ribbons. I use a lot of purple, blue, red and black.

  • fun buttons, vintage buttons- I sew them on everything.


  • I make jewelry with all kinds of beads. I love charms and any kind of bead.


  • I love all colors. Felt with glitter is extra fun!


Wishes- Just for ideas! I will love you forever!

  • Sherlock- I really love love love the new BBC series!

  • Embroidery Floss- Any color. I go through tons of floss. If you have a color that you hate I can use it. Don't toss it!

  • Star Wars- Huge fan of all the films and books. I collect Boba Fett and Clone Trooper items. I also love Stormtroopers.

  • I really like Halloween. It is my favorite Holiday!



***NO FOOD!!!! I have lots of food allergies and it's just easier to say no to it all than to have a seriously ridiculous list.

  • Mint tea and Fruit tea

  • things depicting violence

  • clowns- I have an actual clown phobia.

  • Anything with a smoke smell.

Save these things for another swapper-

  • Journals- I am horrible at keeping them! Save them for a swapper that truly loves them.

  • Foam stuff- I have loads of it since I work with kids

slckad rated for NH: Favorite Quote PC - US Only on Sep 13, 2017
Comment: What a wonderful postcard, and a great quote too! My favorite quote (well one of them as I have many...) is That which does not kill us makes us stronger. I've faced a lot of things in my life so far, and I'm still here and much stronger for each one.

MorahLaura rated for LBoE: School Supplies for Us on Aug 23, 2016
Comment: Hi again Valerie! First off, what an incredibly fun package you sent. Two gold stars and a big shiny apple for you! Each item got squee'd over as it came out, and I had to remind my kids (once again!) that it was a package for ME and not them. I love the purple stapler, and the purple composition book, and the neon pencils and glitter crayons and everything, really. The colorful pencil pouch is perfect and will be used to carry around the gel pens for my bullet journal. And second, thank you for joining my swap. I hope you had as much fun with it as I did, but judging by what you sent, I suspect you did. Thank you again and best wishes for a great school year!
Comment: Sorry for the late rate, but it was AWESOME. You really outdid yourself! I love the little baskets. I'm cracking up that you made my fave captain :) Hubs stole the tissue holder (claiming it would help his allergies - right) and son is taking my tribble! You deserve all of the stars in the Delta quadrant! Thank you so much!
Comment: Shiver is so cute! And soooooo soft! I tried, but I was unable to keep him. When my 9 year old gives me her sad, pleading, "please take pity on your middle child" eyes, I'm pretty helpless. I did insist on keeping the Star Trek craft holder though (after insisting to same child that it is not, in fact, a hat). I'm keeping my bobbins, pincushion, sewing scissors and sizing spray in there. Very handy. Thank you so much!

Your icon, like your profile, is pretty awesome!

kiddomerriweather on Nov 27, 2016:

You are very welcome! Good luck on the move!

TC on Oct 16, 2016:

Thank you for the kind comment. Her passing was rather sudden and unexpected, so the family ended having to do a lot of unplanned cross-country traveling. I think we're nearly at the end of the worst of it, though.

BennysMumma on Jul 23, 2016:

Thank you so much for the Wonder Woman and Lorax patches. They came out awesome!

CajunLady on Jul 7, 2016:

bwhahaha I love the gif of 10 at the bottom of your profile! We're going to a MegaCon in Tampa the last week of October. He's going to be there, along with Billie Piper, William Shatner and Karl Urban. It's a little over 7 hr drive for us, but it's going to be sooooo worth it!

Wow!! I am honestly in utter shock of your amazing kindness. I was not expecting the level of present that you sent me for the Halloween swap I got flaked on. You made my day, heck my whole month! I love everything that you sent to me. Thank you again for being so generous. 💕
