About Me

Hi! Right now I'm in the process of moving, so I don't have a lot of time for SB.

Favorite Books

I enjoy reading a lot of young adult books, as I work with kids.

Favorite Crafts

When I craft I mostly do paper things [out of maps, magazines, and old/foreign books mostly].

Favorite Music

I listen to Indie, Alternative, Electronic, Trap, Swing House, and Classical music.


Things I enjoy:

  • handwritten letters
  • ephemera, postage themed and mail art items [cool stamps, rubber stamps, vintage mail things]
  • reading
  • adventures
  • deco/washi tape
  • the colors turquoise, yellow, dark brown, and scarlet
  • quirky socks
  • squirrels
  • dark and Brit humor
  • white wine, gin
  • Scrabble, Settlers, many other board games
  • collaging [with old magazines, maps, books, buttons, neat scrapbooking paper, stamps]
  • stars
  • owls, sloths, squirrels
  • French art nouveau ads
  • interesting patterns/designs
  • summer/sun
  • fruity candy like Starburst, gummi bears, and Skittles, or peanut butter M&Ms mmmm....

I would love for someone to make me some address labels! We could set up a swap. Message me if you're interested.


It seems picky to have to include a list like this, but you should save things for people who actually want them and won't just throw/give them away. I've gotten pretty much all of these items so I felt it important to specify for future partners.

Things I do not enjoy:

  • coffee
  • fake chocolate [Hershey's]
  • food with nuts
  • dogs
  • cheesy romantic novels/movies [The Notebook, Moulin Rouge] or reality TV [everything from American Idol to Storage Wars to Karashians]
  • vanilla, rose scents, patchouli, or any strong scents
  • the colors beige/tan, pink, fuschia
  • teddy bears
  • Christian/religious things
  • pre-made card kits
  • military/patriotic/American flag items
  • paisley, flowers [unless it's cool flower designs]
  • items with cartoons [Hello Kitty, Disney, Pooh, bears, misc wildlife, etc.]
  • kitschy items [figurines]
  • napkins [PLEASE stop sending me napkins! I don't know why this is a thing. It grosses me out, and I don't want two or ten pretty napkins. Though if you would like them, I have a variety to give away!]
