About Me

Greetings, and Welcome to my profile page!

If you haven't received a swap from me, please let me know. If you sent a swap I haven't acknowledged yet, please let me know that too.

If you are a swap recipient and haven't gotten your swap yet, please message me prior to leaving a 1 rating. It's either on its way, or possibly lost in the mail.

If I haven't rated your swap yet, it's because I haven't gotten your swap yet. If you think you sent something I should have gotten by now, please message me and let me know so I can keep a lookout for it.

If you are a swap participant trying to figure out what to send me for a swap, feel free to read on below for the specifics.

In general, I'd love to get something that represents you, your aesthetic, and/or the place you live. I'm looking to expand my horizons, and that's not going to happen by getting things I already own. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Favorite Crafts

I love pens, paper, stationary, post cards, postage stamps, markers, pretty much anything related to correspondence.

I am obsessed with junk journaling and travel scrapbooking.

I have no artist talent to speak of, so I won't be joining swaps that require you to make something. I'm find with receiving handmade items, but I wouldn't want to disappoint anyone with something I've created.

Yes, Please!

I love all kinds of washi tape, all kinds of stationary, all kinds of paper and note cards, all kinds of post it notes.

I would love anything with a narwhal, Totoro or hot air balloon, clock, typewriter or carousel on it. I have no idea why I'm obsessed with these things.

I also collect shaped paperclips, envelopes, international postage stamps, tiny houses (on washi tape, charms, postcards, drawings, whatever), fairy garden supplies, all kinds of ephemera but especially vintage, tags, pockets, die-cuts, pretty much anything flat that I can stick into a junk journal.

No, Thanks!

I am not fond of:

  • Ripped out book pages - please don't murder innocent books!
  • Strong odors - they make me quite ill
  • Magazine or Encyclopedia cut outs - the paper is too flimsy for me to work with
  • sports themed anything
  • Disney themed anything
  • school or rewards themed anything
  • hearts of any kind
  • pictures of household animals (don't get me wrong, I love actual cats, dogs and horses, but I don't need pictures of them)
  • smiley faces
  • Barbie or other toys
  • baby themed anything
  • weddings themed anything

Washi Tape

There is no bad Washi tape, but if you happen to have some in your stash, I would be especially happy to get anything with:

  • gears
  • clocks
  • houses
  • mushrooms
  • hot air balloons
  • flowers
  • really pretty much any fun designs

Overall, I prefer patterns over solid colors. If you have a style or pattern that you think is unique to your area (i.e. did not come from Michaels, A.C. Moore or Target) I'd love to get that as well.

Favorite Themes

  • Steampunk (Gears, Clocks, Goggles, Machinery)
  • Fantasy
  • Travel
  • Vintage
  • Tiny houses or cottages
  • Paris
  • Sea and Sea Creatures
  • Clouds
  • Gardens, Flowers, Plants, Trees
  • Space
  • Carosels/Circus
  • Sky
  • Beach

And just for full disclosure, some themes I'm not interested in at all include:

  • Sports
  • Babies
  • School
  • Weddings


Most of the stickers swaps I have signed up for are sender's choice, so by all means, send me your choice.

But I would be especially glad to get stickers that are decorative (think interesting shapes, swirls and designs rather than cartoons or pictures of animals).

I would be especially grateful for stickers depicting the following:

  • tiny houses or lighthouses
  • hot air balloons
  • leaves, trees or feathers
  • anything travel themed
  • tags or label shapes
  • anything space themed
  • mystical creatures of any kind such as mermaids and dragons
  • clouds
  • flowers
  • vines
  • dragonflies
  • bird, bird houses or bird cages
  • buildings and castles

I'd rather get a variety of loose stickers than a sheet of multiple duplicate stickers. I like variety!


One of the reasons I first joined Swapbot was to find a use for a couple of packs of postcards I've had for ages. My Mom send me off to camp with a pack about 125 years ago, and I sent some to her while I was there, and have had the rest since then. I'm going to be honest - the postcards are nothing special.

But since I've joined swapbot, people have sent me neat, weird, interesting, wild, beautiful postcards, and I'm geniunely curious - where do you find them?

My local Barnes & Noble? Doesn't carry postcards. My local Target/Walgreens/Walmart? Don't carry them.

I know you can find touristy postcards in touristy place, and really expensive art postcards in museum and art attractions, but where are people getting postcards that aren't touristy or arty?

My local used bookstores tend to have a box of postcards, but I have to riffle through them repeatedly to find cards that aren't in bad shape or already written on.

I know you can buy them online or make one using Zazzle, but that's not a a lot of help when you join a swap has to be completed in 5 days.

So tell me, where do you go to find non- touristy, non-homemade, non-arty, interesting postcards?

I'm not picky about postcards that I get.


I read and collect:

  • Cozy mysteries
  • Mysteries in general
  • Urban fantasy
  • Science fiction
  • Fantasy

If it has a strong, smart lead character, I will like it.

Sorry, but these aren't for me:

  • History
  • Sports
  • Biographies
  • Romance novels

My Crafting Confessions

  • I'm way better at collecting craft materials than using them.

  • I buy nice things and then don't use them because I want to save them because they are so nice.

  • I buy stuff I don't know what to do with just in case I someday know what to do with it.

  • If I do finish a craft project, I tend to give up the craft entirely after that.

Randomly rereading your profile and I’m curious too: did you ever find out where folks get the fun postcards? I see a few here and there in large amazon collections but frankly I don’t want to buy 50 of the same type of postcard, you know? Well, maybe botanical, but that’s because I could use them elsewhere in my art.

Ugh. Let me know if you ever get the skinny on how to procure any awesome ones! :)

Hello!!! Greetings from MD as well! I’m pretty sure I had you as a partner in another swap prior to this. LOL. it is snowing where I live and I LOVE it. Only 2-4 inches which is not enough at all! I want feet! I’m one of those crazy people I know! Happy Swapping!

HI, Happy New Year! I'm Kim from the Quick and Easy Profile Message #6 swap. I am addicted to junk journaling and travel scrapbooking too. I have never made a travel scrapbook. It would be a lot of fun but I'm more interested in the place I travel to than making a scrapbook. I'm not sure how others take in all the beautiful and new surroundings at the same time scrapbook it. Usually, for me the scrapbook comes much later. Over Christmas break, I made my first Junk Journals and gave them away as gifts. I'm now officially addicted!!! Recently, I just finished my own Junk Journal and am very excited about filling it with all the junk I have found. I didn't know I had so much junk! I hope you have a great day! Happy crafting!! Kim

Good morning from the midwest! I hope you are having a fantastic day. It's quite frigid here in the midwest, we have a low of 5 degrees today with the snow and ice packed all over the streets. Stay safe and warm!

Welcome to swap bot. To answer your first question on your profile I would say that 10 type three swaps anything after that I think your not a newbie here anymore. But, I have been on here since 2008 and still feel like I haven't found out all of what I need . Good luck dear.
