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 fine 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
  • wedding 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
  • fall/autumn
  • 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
  • Fall/Autumn
  • Beach

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

  • Sports
  • Babies
  • School
  • Weddings

Stickers

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!

Postcards

Please, please, please, please do not send me touristy/destination/Greetings From type postcard unless it is a place you are actually from.

I've been participating in a lot of postcard swaps that involve sending blank postcards, and overall, I like to think I'm not too picky, but I keep getting similar touristy postcards that I don't know what to do with, other than send them off to someone else who probably also doesn't want them.

I knew it was bad when I sent off a touristy postcard in a swap and got back the exact same postcard in another swap from a DIFFERENT person a few weeks later.

I would LOVE to get postcards that feature artworks, carousels, lighthouses, Space, pretty much anything listed in my favorite themes area above.

Books

I read and collect:

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

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.

Hi there! Promoting a PC swap I'm hosting if you're interested. Have a nice day!

Sticker PC Swap #12 - USA ONLY

splendorpursuit on Aug 26, 2018:

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.
