Hello! Thank you for stopping by my profile page to learn a bit more about me. My name is Brittany, I am 26 years old. I have been swapping for 6 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! Huzzah!

I have 4 amazing rescue cats. Demon, JuJu, Crowley and Wizard, a 3 boys and a girl respectively. They are very odd, even for cats IMO.

I have a rescue dog named Toby, he is annoying and I love him.

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. Also, have you seen the new Harry Potter stamps!!!! I bought 6 books!

Geocaching - If you enjoy treasure hunts, the outdoors, adventure, meeting new friends, and spreading joy I suggest you click the link to join in on the fun of geocaching!

Watercolor - I have recently rediscovered my love of painting, and with that a new passion for watercolors, which I offer in my Etsy Shop .

Jewelry - Another thing I offer in my Etsy Shop . I like to use butterfly wings and found objects as my main source of inspiration.

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.

Photography - I enjoy macro photos and creative/fantasy photo-shoots. I would love to be a wildlife photographer one day.

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.

Stephen Gammell

Lane Smith

Joan Aiken

Alvin Schwartz

Steven King

J.K. Rowling

RR Martin

Laurell K Hamilton

Paul Jennings

Eric Carle

Veronica Roth

Relient K

Blue October

The Decemberists

Kimya Dawson

Adam Green

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.

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...Steampunk, marine, nautical, vintage, upcycled, grunge, geeky, shabby chic, video games, 8 bit, pixels, minecraft, harry potter, portal.

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!

My husband is a man of simple tastes. He enjoys the following.

Dr. Pepper

Coca Cola

Sour Gummy Candy

White Chocolate

Naruto

Rurouni Kenshin

One Piece

Drawing supplies (micron pens, .05 or .03 mechanical pencils, non spiral classic orientation sketchbooks and shading pens)

Orange flavored gum

Japanese souvenirs (coins, ninja stuff, kanji, etc)

Amigurumis and pouches in themes he likes.

The cats are simple minded, they like the following.

Foil toys

Felted balls

Felt toys

Toy mice

Grain Free Treats

The dog likes floppy toys and all snacks, he is a glutton. However he has a severe grain allergy, so only grain free snacks for him please.

As a member in general, and a Swap-Bot Ambassador specifically I promise to:

Always rate fairly.

Send all swaps on time.

Resolve all issues in a friendly manner.

Keep my swaps safe and flaker-free.

Angel any swaps that I host.

Make all of my swaps something I would love to receive.

Keep the love of mail alive, and spread the word about Swap-Bot!

Comment: I so enjoyed reading your answers! Actually there's alot of similarities between us, on a light note I would love to meet the cast of supernatural too, and on a more serious one, meet my birth father one day also. I loved your fav quote and Groundhog Day answers. Your personality & spirit really shone through in your answers and it was a delight to read what you wrote for each question! Thanks for joining the swap! Hope your having a good weekend!

Thank you so much for the Vader charm necklace! I think I will turn it into a keychain....or at least a purse hangy thing (I've already got a Disney Vader pin attached to it). Love the card as well - it's one for the fridge gallery for sure. ;D
