Hello! Thank you for stopping by my profile page to learn a bit more about me. My name is Brittany, I am 28 years old. I have been swapping for 8 years now! It seems like just yesterday I was putting stickers into an envelope for my first swap!
The Lord is my Savior. Please respect my religion and I will respect yours (or lack thereof). I do not believe religion should affect with whom or what I swap. I will not send religious items and I would appreciate the same courtesy.
I have married my best friend! And we have a baby now!
I have 2 mazing rescue cats. Demon and Wizard, a boy and a girl respectively. They are very odd, even for cats IMO.
I have 4 ferrets, Finnegan, Nibbler, Jerry and Oso. Furry snakes basically :)
In my copious amounts of free time I enjoy many hobbies, which are listed in detail below.
Swapping & Snail Mail - For obvious reasons this is number one on this list, mail is such a fun way to connect to another human.
Nature Collecting - I love insect specimens, bones, and taxidermy of all kinds. I use these objects as a way to engage children in a lesson that may otherwise be boring.
Currency/Coin/Stamp Collecting - This is again a great way to engage children and liven up a history lesson.
Sewing - I am a beginner sewer and I find zipper frightening! That's all for now.
I enjoy so many books that I cannot possibly list them all, so here are a few of my favorite illustrators and authors instead. I do read mostly YA if you can't tell from the list.
Laurell K Hamilton
Just a few of my favorite bands, by no means is this close to complete or in order of favoritism.
The Mountain Goats
The White Stripes
All American Rejects
My Chemical Romance
If you are in a profile-based swap with me, this section may help you out! For very specific themes please refer to other profile sections, especially hobbies.
Colors... I do not particularly like brown or brownish tones, nor do I like dark greens. All other colors are cool.
Smells...anything "natural" like lavender, sage, sandalwood, lemon, citrus, etc. No sugary or bakery smells please.
Animals... Red pandas, whales, narwhals, octopus, jellyfish, snails, butterflies, foxes, wolves....all of them??? Oh yes! And grey cats with orange eyes in particular.
Themes...ocean life, cats, rainbow, and crystals.
Foods...please send no food items unless it is swap specific or we discuss it first.
Cosmetics...due to very sensitive skin please only send organic soaps, bath bombs, lip balms, lotions etc.
Did I miss anything? Please let me know!
