About Me

Hello, I am a preschool teacher originally from the Bay Area, CA, but i just recently moved to Tacoma, WA with my little corgi Kaylee. :)I enjoy all types of crafting, but mainly scrapbooking, crochetting, and mixed media canvas art. I used to have crafting days with my girlfriends back home but I haven't done much socializing since the move, and I thought joining Swap Bot would be a fun way to motivate and inspire me to make some new crafts. I also thought it would be a great way to meet some new friends from around the world who shared some similar interests. :) Also, I practically live off of Starbucks! Lol


I LOVE Disney! I love all the animated Disney movies whether they are princesses or talking animals. I go around my house singing Disney songs all the time to the point that my husband has adopted an "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" policy and sometimes sings along with me. :) My favorite princesses are Belle, Tiana, and Mulan, and my alltime favorite Disney characters are Dumbo and Mike Wazowski!

Since moving away from home I have been writing a lot of letters, so any cutesy stationary is always welcomed and appreciated. It's always exciting to receive a handwritten letter or postcard in the mail. I have made it a point to sit down with my coffee and write letters every Tuesday.

I love handmade craft items in any and all forms, knitting, crochetting, papercrafts, original paintings/drawings, even if they're just on a napkin. :) I love seeing how other people express themselves through their crafting. I have just heard of deco books and I would love to see/make one.

Other things I like are: anything small and round or "chubby" with eyes, I think they are so adorable. I also like all kinds of fishies and elephants. I like anything that has a creepy or weird feel to it, winter trees, skulls, monsters/creatures, anything sci-fi or fantasy except for fairies. Haha


Eric Gandeza, my hubby likes to get mail too! Here are his likes/wishlist:

Marvel comics- his fav heroes are Deadpool, The Hulk, and Captain America.

Actions movies from the 80's with cheesy 1-liners

Medieval knights and dragons

Any sort of weaponry- ancient, modern, or futuristic

Anything having to do with surviving the apocalypse - zombies and whatnot

Ancient greek mythology

Video games - mostly shooter games or rpgs.

I've also made him a few atcs, and I've seen him eying my collection, and I think he secretly wants to start his own. Haha

Thank you, he will be so happy to receive his own swap-bot mail! :D
