About Me

Hello! I live in Florida with my husband and pets. I am an introvert and I need some downtime each day to recharge, feel happy and for my peace of mind. Introvert doesn't mean shy, but in my case I am both shy and introverted.

I love coffee and birds. I like to read, watch movies, listen to music (or rain). I also enjoy the hands on process of making things like art or crafts. I really enjoy sending and receiving mail from all over the world. :)

I've tried to help you with ideas for swapping with me by making a list below of preferences. I hope they help you and I look forward to swapping with you! πŸ’™

.

Allergens

cats β€” I am allergic to kitties! :( If you have a cat, please don't let it around the swap package and give things a good shake to remove kitty dander before shipping so I can enjoy what you sent. Thank you! :)

Smoke & scents β€” I get migraines from cigarette smoke and perfume scents. If you smoke, could you please air out the item before sending? Thank you! :)

.

Preferences πŸ’™

πŸ’™ Mail Art πŸ’™ β€” I love decorated envies! One of the best things about swapping I enjoy is opening the po box and finding a bunch of pretty envies. :)

Postage stamps β€” I enjoy real stamps as opposed to metered mail.

Postcards - written β€” sent naked (no envelope), any design, handwritten (not a phone app one that is printed and sent for you), Zazzle cards are fine

Postcards - blank β€” no state/map postcards, no handmade, no ad cards, well made Zazzle are fine

🌱Colors:
β€” favorites: Mint aqua, aqua, tiffany blue, robin egg blue, silver, gold, black, grey, jewel tones of: purple, green and blue
β€” dislike: orange, yellow, neon colors, pink
β€” more info: color preferences are for 'things' (yes, I would prefer a mint aqua doodad over an orange one). But when it comes to art, I generally like all the colors.

.

🌱Art:
β€” favorites: watercolors, acrylics, oil, pen and ink, pencils... pretty much any traditional media used for painting/drawing.
β€” art styles I especially like: hand drawn and/or hand painted things, art journal pages, lino prints, gelli prints, fantasy art
β€” more info: I really enjoy hand drawn or hand painted art and I know that can be intimidating if you aren't sure about your ability to draw. But I promise that you don't have to be a professional artist to make something I would enjoy. :) I really enjoy seeing your unique artistic expression! I hope you give it a try. But if you really don't want to, your style will be appreciated too.
β€” artists I admire: Edouard Leon Cortes (his rain paintings), Ciruelo (his dragons), Howard Lyon, John William Waterhouse, Donato Giancola, James Christensen, William Bouguereau

.

🌱Stickers:
β€” like: flat
β€” dislike: dimensional, teacher/reward

.

🌱Crafty Things:
β€” like: glitter, sparkles, gold leaf, metallic inks & paints, washi tape, handmade envelopes, matchboxes (altered/artsy, filled with little trinkets), rubber stamps (both store-bought and hand carved), rub on transfers, pocket letters, journals, journaling, stained glass, gelli prints, typewritten letters, handwritten letters & notes
β€” not into: scrapbooking items, paper cutouts from machines (Sizzix etc.), project life cards, small pieces of paper

.

🌱Paper & Stationery:
β€” like: envelopes (bought and handmade), Stationery (love Peter Pauper press and Punch Studio), Note cards (store bought, well made Zazzle), typewritten letters, handwritten letters & notes, journals (bought and handmade)
β€” dislike: kawaii stationery

.

🌱Misc themes & Things:
β€” love: Smashed pennies (I collect these, would love one from where you live)
β€” like: foreign money/coins, books, silver jewelry, skeleton keys
β€” dislike, please don't send:
β€”β€”β€” misc: clowns, skulls, politics, sports
β€”β€”β€” adult themes: pinups, nudity, bad language
β€”β€”β€” gory & violent & doll parts: bloody & gory things, body part things (anatomical hearts, eyeballs etc), zombies, baby dolls & doll parts
β€”β€”β€” Characters, superheros, children's themes

.

🌱Animals:
β€” love: Birds!!! (all kinds, songbirds, crows, ravens, owls, chickens. I prefer hens over roosters)
β€” like: birds, bunnies
β€” dislike: bears, snakes

.

🌱Nature:
β€” like: Acorns, beach, bird eggs, crystals, geodes, gems, leaves, lush green forests, moss, mushrooms, nebulas, ocean, pinecones, pumpkins, river rocks, sunflowers, trees
β€” dislike: swamps, deserts

.

🌱Seasons & Weather:
β€” love: rain!, winter, autumn

.

🌱Christmas:
β€” like: Christmas ornaments, trees, lights, snowflakes, doves, snow, wintry scenes β€” dislike: Santa Claus

.

🌱Foods:
β€” like: coffee, chocolate (please put meltable items (even hard candy) in a plastic zip bag because it gets very hot here in Florida and it will make a mess of the package)
β€” dislike: green tea

.

🌱Print Patterns & Fabrics:
β€” like: jacquard, velvet, linen, satin, silks, brocade
β€” dislike: animal prints (cheetah, zebra etc), cabbage roses, camo, chintz, western themes, houndstooth

.


Unless it is specifically part of the swap, I'd rather not have:

friendship books/sheets, slams, etc

religion - Non-Christian religious things/themes. I'm not Catholic though, so please no crucifixes, rosaries etc.

themes -clowns, skulls, bears, snakes, politics, sports, adult (naked, pinup, bad language), gory, bloody, violent, doll parts, body parts (anatomical hearts, eyeballs), Santa Claus, superheros, children's themes

.

Swap Info

I use a PO Box so I do not check my mail everyday. I check about once a week or so. I always rate and I rate on the same day I receive the swap so if I haven't rated you I haven't received your swap yet. I'm sure it will be waiting for me on my next trip to the po box. :) And if it seems a swap has gotten lost along the way, I will contact you via pm before rating. :)

I always send out, usually early. I mark as sent once I get home from dropping it in the mailbox or at the post office. I usually mail in the evening which means they won't get postmarked until the next day or so when they get collected by the mail carrier.

Please let me know if you don't receive a swap from me before rating. :) Thanks! πŸ’œ

Happy swapping! :)
