I am a 45 yr old mom of two boys and I have been married 22 years now to a wonderful man who puts up with my crafting. My sons both have ASD. One is 17 and a senior in High School. The other is 10 and in 4th grade. Recently my younger son and I went to Disneyland for Halloween 2018 and we had a great time.
I have been learning how to bind books. I love butterflies and woodland animals such as foxes and deer. I enjoy Pusheen, Grumpy Cat and Disney. I am a fan of Wrendale Designs woodland creatures.
I have a rare name and so I don't usually see it on key chains etc. So I am very happy when I see my first name in pretty script or fonts on cards, letters and PCs.
I do like mythical creatures as well dragons being my favorite.
My family and I do celebrate secular holidays.
Please message me if a swap is late or gone missing. I only mark sent when I hand the physical letter or package to the postman or I drop it off myself at the inside post office mail slot.
My favorite crafts are filling my own personal journals with fun things, writing to pen pals, and counted cross stitch.
I am practicing ATCs. I have made my own journal from scratch including tea staining the paper, binding the book, making signatures and stitching them in.
I love to practice my handwriting. I think it is an important skill to keep working on. I hope to learn Brush calligraphy.
I am learning a lot from Swap-bot about the various types of different crafts. It is quite a bit of fun. YouTube and Pinterest make it so much easier to find out how make items. I have to say thank you to all the DIYers out there that load up videos and pictures.
I prefer listening to pop and rock music. I have enjoyed listening to all kinds of music though including jazz, classical and cultural.
I prefer watching DIY on YouTube. I have been learning more about paper crafting and brush lettering lately.
I have actually never had a favorite book. I am currently reading The House with a Clock in its Walls by John Bellairs. I did enjoy the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J. R. Ward
I love stickers, except puffy. I subscribe to Stickii and buy all three packs. They are awesome stickers that are non kiddie, non alpha, great for planners. Check them out at this Stickii Link
I love ephemera to craft with and die cuts.
I like to journal and collect fun stuff to put in it. My journals are quite poofy.
I have started collecting vintage playing cards. I really like the animal or floral ones best. Numbered or blank.
I do like postage stamps but I am not a big collector. Pretty used ones often go in my journal.
I do enjoy stamped images that I can color in and add to my journals.
Oh! A new thing I have been into is Zines. Those are so interesting. I have just 3 now that I have collected.
I do like Kawaii stationery.
I love butterflies.
Disney characters, especially Minnie and Mickey. Oh and Stitch.
Tiny things such as miniature cars (micro machines) and ceramic animals. I have a tiny wolf sitting on my desk in front of me now.
If anyone collects used stamps, I have been cutting them out of my swap envies. Just message me if you would like them and we can set up a swap.
Had a bad day, week, month? Running low on note cards, stationary but want to keep swapping? Message me if you would like a RAK (Random Act of Kindness) and I will see what can be done.
Please as a side note, I do not wish to receive anything religious. I am not religious but respect all religions and the people who practice them.
Sadly, candy treats I cannot have. I am on a special diet from my physician.
Please no clothing or house hold items.
I really don't care for glitter. It is pretty until it sticks to me. The stuff is as a bad as little bits of Styrofoam or sap. Once you get it on ya, good luck getting it off!
Please Note: A small amount well stuck to the paper such as on a card or sticker is fine.
I don't care for confetti or sequins.
I personally don't use temporary tattoos so they just get passed along.
I personally don't use puffy stickers as they are don't match my aesthetic for journals and so I just pass them along.
