About Me


If you did not receive something from me please contact me before rating. I always send and I will resend if something is lost in the mail. Also, I rate as soon as I open packages I'm usually still pulling stuff out of the box and "aww"ing while signing on to Swap-bot to rate. If I haven't rated you then I haven't received anything. I will always contact someone before leaving a low rating. I feel communication is our most effective tool on Swap-bot and it should be utilized often.

A bit about me hmmmm....I'm in my late twenties. I'm very open minded. I have two beautiful children by my high school sweetheart who I love dearly. We also have two fur baby (one isnt much of a baby she's old!!) kitty cats!

☠I love tattoo's and believe 100% that tattoos are an art form and skin is a great canvas.☠☠ I love anything vintage and rockabilly looking. I like rat rod cars and pin up art. I love quirky off the wall pieces of art. I am so inspired by people who can turn your day to day run of the mill items into something new and unusual. Street art is especially fun to spot.

Favorite Music

I love classic, hardcore, and southern hardcore rock. I like alternative music. Some rap and R&B is ok. I don't like country. I love artists like:


Paramore, 36 Crazyfists, System of a down, Bring me the horizon, Bruno Mars, Bob Marley, Skrillex, Florence and the Machine, Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa, The Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Haste the day, Maylene and the sons of disaster, Every Time I Die, Atreyu, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, Minus the bear, Underoath, The Almost, Kittie The Distillers, Kidney Thieves, Evanescence, Otep Lil Wayne, Outkast, Trey songs, Usher, Justin Timberlake, Jay Z Drake, Tyga, And T.I. ...just to name a few.

Favorite Books

I LOVE NORA ROBERTS! I love her laid back style of writing. Her characters are relatable and lovable.


Other than reading Nora Roberts books I like other cheesy but well-written romance novels. I totally dig anything that gets me thinking so detective or mysteries are always welcome on my book shelf.

Favorite Movies

I love chick flicks just as much as the next girl but I also love comedies and horror movies. I don't mind goriness at all.

Favorite Crafts

  • mixed media canvas and art journaling

  • I love to write poems and short stories,

  • I like to take pictures,

  • collect buttons,

  • make flower arrangements and potpourri bags,

Back in the swing of things.

I'm back and swapping regularly. I love this site but I will stick to a small lists of swaps I'm in or hosting. I don't want to overwhelm myself.

**"One of the things that baffles me (and there are quite a few) is how there can be so much lingering stigma with regards to mental illness, specifically bipolar disorder. In my opinion, living with manic depression takes a tremendous amount of balls. Not unlike a tour of Afghanistan (though the bombs and bullets, in this case, come from the inside). At times, being bipolar can be an all-consuming challenge, requiring a lot of stamina and even more courage, so if you're living with this illness and functioning at all, it's something to be proud of, not ashamed of. They should issue medals along with the steady stream of medication." **

Comment: Thank you so much for the little things, they are beautiful. And the envelope stamps too... greetings from Chile...
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you loved everything!!
Comment: The letter was the best part. :)
Response: It's so funny I love putting the swaps together but honestly the letter parts are always my favorites!
Comment: Thank you for sharing such a nice letter with the "note card of encouragement." I really enjoyed reading what all you wrote. I too love reading the works of Nora Roberts. She is one of the few non-Urban-Fantasy authors I still read, and some of her books do have Urban-Fantasy-like elements! I am sadly not very artistic. If I am drawn to anything art-related, it's usually something simple, or basic. I much prefer to read! :-) Thanks again for sharing!

Hi Shalenna!! I'm Maureen, your partner for the swap EASY: Profile Comment #5. I read your profile and saw that we have several things in common. like bake! I adore baking for my family and friends, is like a form where I can express my love to them :). I also suffer depression and anxiety. The anxiety is a little more controlled than depression, but there's always a situation where I can not control myself and the anxiety shows up. I don't use pills, it was my option not to use them, because I think that we can heal ourselves by mental working, it is hard, but I know we can control both things. If I can recommend something is yoga, I started doing yoga in january, but at the begining I felt that that practice didn't have enough effect over me...but once I practiced it regularly I started to relax and be more conscious about the things I was doing. The things that you have lived this year are so terrible, but I know it will get better, you just have to believe that this big storm will pass and the sun will show up :) it's just a matter of time. Our styles don't fit at all haha, actually I don't have a style so defined and cool like yours, but I do imagine us being friends and I would love being your friend :). Also, if want to do private swaps I will be more than happy to do that.

Lot of love and hugs from Chile.

Hello there! I really admire people who have found their style! It took me really long to finally find mine, also i totally sign your thoughts about body art. Although I am more in the piercing kind of stuff (I also have a tatoo though). Also I totally can picture you laughing so hard so your stomach is aching! There is nothing better! I wish you a wonderful day!! Best from the other side of the world :) Vanessa!
