NOTE: I’ve got a lot going on right now and am currently taking a break from swapping for a while. I’ll be back once things in my life settle down a bit.
Hi, I’m Stephanie! I chose the user name PrertyAlice because Alice is my middle name and I like the way it sounds. I love to read, garden organically, cook and bake, listen to music, watch Netflix and YouTube and of course craft! I love Harry Potter, mythical creautres (mermaids, dragons, fairies, unicorns, vampires, etc.), urban legends, florals and botanicals, butterflies, Tim Burton, and all things witchy. I love nature and all animals and have three sweet kitties but my favorite animals are bats. My favorite colors are black, purple, dark red and thrquoise. I also like light rosey pink on vintage and shabby chic projects. I consider myself to be Pagan but am open minded to all religious and spirtual paths.
Craft styles I like best are vintage, shabby chic, gothic, steampunk, macabre (Bones, bats, etc.) and creepy Halloween. I also like vintage and traditional Christmas themes during the holidays. I love stationary and writing letters to my pen pals so letter sets are always welcome. When I can I enjoy using wax seals on my letters too. I collect enamel pins and am trying to build my collection. I also collect stamps and postcards (written and stamped) and am trying to get all 50 US states and as many from the rest of the world as I can. Another couple things I collect are crystal gems and skeleton keys.
I always send on time and pledge to rate honestly. If for some reason you don’t get a swap from me please message me before giving me a bad rating. Communication is appreciated!
I’m very sensitive to scents and many give me a bad migraine so please don’t send anything scented. Thanks!
My favorite crafts are jewelry making and papercrafting- things like cards, pocket letters, flip books, zines, embellishments and deco books. I have made and sent out several deco books and am excited to get them back and see how people interpreted the themes. I like making jewelry using real gemstones and am currently working on starting my own business selling my handmade pieces. I have very sensitive skin so I like creating my own bath and beauty products like soaps, shampoo, conditioner, bath bombs, deodorant, etc. using essential oils. I create my own recipes and designs and do everything as naturally as possible. I enjoy decorative planning with stickers in my planner too. I have even made some of my own stickers and planner accessories. I also enjoy mail art and creating fun envelopes to send out.
I’m starting to get into sewing with my machine and making small projects. I think it’s fun and would welcome any sewing supplies.
Right now I’m really concentrating on my new jewelry business. I’m trying to work on building an inventory, taking product photos, getting shipping supplies and hope to open my website in the next several months. You can check out my business FB page or IG Pretty Alice Designs.
I really like fiction, teen fiction, distopian, fantasy, sci-fi, mystery and horror novels. Some of my favorite books are the Harry Potter series and Shoot the Moon by Billie Letts among some others. Some authors I enjoy are Sarah Dessen, Laurie Halse Anderson, L.J. Smith, Billie Letts, Charlene Harris, Kathy Reichs, Scott Westerfeld and more. I usually listen to audiobooks rather than reading physical books but both are great.
I love Tim Burton movies like Edward Scizzorhands, Sweeney Todd, The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Corpse Bride. I also like the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Alice in Wonderland, Practical Magic, The Skelleton Key, Lovely Bones, The Virgin Suicides, and more.
I like mystery, suspence, sci-fi, and fantasy shows best. I really like the shows by Joss Whedon. Some of my favorite TV shows are Haven, Buffy, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Firefly, Tru Calling, Dollhouse, Supernatural, Warehouse 13, Lost, True Blood, House, Dexter, Sherlock, Sanctuary, The Sarah Connor Chronicals, Merlin, Bones, Psych, The Finder, Hart of Dixie, Saving Grace and many more! I don’t really have many favorite actors but a couple are Eliza Dushku, Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp.
I love receiving all sorts of mail. Letters and hand made cards are great. I would love to receive crafty items like washi tape, stickers including alphabets, scrapbook paper, die cuts and metal dies, embellishments, sticky back rhinestone gems, shaped sequins, rubber or clear stamps, stamping ink, embossing powders, etc. I would also love to receive jewelry supplies such as gemstone beads, spacer beads, findings, etc.
Some other ideas are sealing wax, postcards, stationary, handmade envelopes, colored pens, enamel pins for my collection (guaranteed heart), and gemstone beads (glass are fine but I’m not a fan of plastic beads). Seeds (especially heirlooms) for my garden would be nice too (I grow fruits, veggies, herbs, and some flowers). I also like to receive nice handmade goodies like pocket letters, flip books, loaded bags/envelopes, zines, junk journals, etc. I am loving deco books so I’d love to receive these as well. I enjoy teas such as lemon herbal, English breakfast and earl grey.
Postcards I enjoy most postcards with the exception of handmade and nudity, profanity, and religious themes. I love ones related to gardening, Alice in Wonderland, Tim Burton, Harry Potter, animals, US states and other countries, fun facts, recipes, Halloween and Christmas.
I feel the need to put this here just so y’all are aware. One thing I really dislike are strong scents because they give me a horrible migraine so please don’t send anything scented. Neons also hurt my eyes and head. I’m not really into childlike craft items like cartoon or character stickers. (I do like other stickers though). I have asthma and am allergic to smoke so no incense please. I’m highly allergic to lavender, jasmine, peanuts, cigarette smoke and all metals except sterling silver. PLEASE NO FOODS WITH ASPARTAME, NUTRASWEET, AMINOSWEET, NEOTAME, OR PHENYLALANINE. I am highly allergic. I’d appreciate it if you didn’t send any food or drink items unless the swap specifically calls for it. Thanks so much and happy swapping everyone!
I don’t care for flakers and people who are rude so please be kind and I’ll do the same. :)
