Hello from Ryleighsmom!

Hello! My name is Michelle & I'm a happily married mom to a very busy daughter! I've been married since 1993. We spent 14 years on the painful journey of infertility. We were blessed in 2008 with a newborn through the miracle of adoption!!

I've been swapping off and on for about 34 years! I regularly swap stickers, note cards, state map postcards, etc.


*Paper crafts such as pocket letters, junk and magpie journals, handmade envelopes and more



*Visiting our state parks

*Spending time with my family

*Thrift shops

*Decorating my home


*Upcycling junk into treasures

I’m just getting in to Bible Journaling! Any tips and ideas are most welcome.

To see my favorite things, check out my Pinterest boards at http://www.pinterest.com/ryleighsmom/


Would love any amount of Box Tops for Education for my daughter's school.

Favorite Television

I really don't watch much television, but when I do, I watch HGTV or classics such as I Love Lucy and Andy Griffith. :) I also love shows about history.

Favorite Books

I love Christian fiction, historical romances, etc.


My wishlist/loves:

  • Stickers (See below)
  • Note cards (See below)
  • Stationery
  • Food-scented candles & bath products
  • Ultra Fine Sharpies in all colors
  • Seasonal cupcake liners
  • Seasonal sprinkles
  • Seasonal paper napkins
  • Cute, whimsical owls
  • Address Labels
  • $5 gift cards to my fave stores (see below)

For sticker & note card themes, I love anything Autumn related (apples, pumpkins, etc.), snowmen, Christmas, flowers, girly...just about anything BUT teacher reward and boyish toys like transformers or whatever. I don't need anymore Dollar Store type note cards...have lots of those!

I love milk chocolate, peanut M & M's, tootsie rolls, gum, etc. Not a fan of black licorice or raisins.

I am a Christian, so I love Christian themed things...not a collector of angels or anything, but I'm not offended by stickers or cards with Scriptures on them...in fact, I love them!

Favorite Stores

I love to shop at Hobby Lobby, Michael's, Joann Fabrics, Hancock Fabrics, Half Price Books, Homegoods, etc.

Goodies for my Daughter

My daughter LOVES to receive mail! Her birthday is July 1 (2008). Her name is Ryleigh . She loves cards, letters, balloons, candy, gum, etc. She lives and breathes playing the piano. She LOVES anything music themed. She loves Mandisa, Toby Mac, Francesca Batistelli and more.

She is not a Barbie fan.


  • Coffee and anything coffee flavored or scented

  • Pagan, goth, bats, wiccan stuff

  • I don't wear jewelry, make-up or perfume.

*My BIGGEST Dislike is when people have a LONG Dislike list. We're here to have fun...if I don't like something I can surely pass it on!

I am VERY allergic to cat hair, cigarette smoke, coffee scented things and floral scented things.

Other news-2/1/18- Hey all! I'm behind in rating and hope to catch up in the next couple of days. I had an unexpected minor surgery the end of January and having a hard time recovering. Thank you for your patience!

1/24/18- We are iced in again. 😩 No school, no mail, etc. 🌬💧

1/12/18- We are iced in. Snow is falling hard on top of the ice. No mail, no school today. Brrr...

1/11/18- We have a snow and ice storm that supposed to arrive about 2 AM. Yuck!

1/2/18- I put swaps in my mailbox today, but the mail truck never came. Maybe because it was -14*? All I know is that I’m over winter! Ha!

12/30/17- Our weather is bad...snow and slick roads with single digit temps. If my swaps take longer than usual to arrive, this is why. If our mail doesn’t run, I’ll be sure to notify my partners.

11/12/17- I'm feeling so much better!! Thank you for the good thoughts and the prayers! I'm hoping to start PT this week! Feels good to be up and around! :)

11/5/17- Hey all...just a quick update. I've been flat on my back for over a week now. Bulging disc/sciatica. I ended up going to the ER today and got a shot in my back for the pain, plus 3 different RX meds. I see the Spine DR tomorrow. I apologize if I'm slow in rating or replying. Hubby is helping me get my swaps mailed out. Thanks to the shot, I've been able to sit up for over 30 minutes today. Yay! Keep me in your thoughts and prayers as the pain has been excruciating. Thank you!

12/19/16 I rec'd a Christmas card from TreAnna Bradley...no swap name or SB user name. Will rate when I hear from you, TreAnna.
