About Me

Hello there! My name is Stacy Renee and I am a 32 year old SAHM from Florida. I am married with one little one. (2018) I'm returning after a long hiatus so I don't have many swaps under my belt but hope to change that!

I love to read, write, paint, craft, and more. I basically live for music, art, and literature. I also really love nature, gardening, being outside, and going on adventures!

I spend most of my free time either reading, writing, creating, crafting, or taking pictures of books for bookstagram!

I started my pen friend journey as a kid when I sent a letter to a random school across the country asking for a pen pal. That and writing family members was one of the bright rays of sunshine in my childhood.

Now, I'm determined to channel my feelings and energy into putting some 'happy' out into the world. I'm currently looking for pen friends to send happy mail!

My current creative endeavors include creative bullet journaling, art journaling, junk journaling, snail mail, and other paper crafts.

I'm currently really into languages, cultures, and world history so if you live somewhere else in the world than the US, I would LOVE something from your country, be it a newspaper or magazine clipping, something in your language, pictures of your area, etc. I am actively learning Spanish, French, and Farsi.

If you don't receive something from me, PLEASE let me know, message me, so I can re-send it and make up for it. I promise I won't 'flake' on anyone.

Favorite Music

Music is life. I basically listen to music all day, even while reading.

I listen to many different types of music. Mostly classical, classic rock, hard rock, but also alternative, indie, chillwave, electronic, synth-pop, darkwave, witch-house, and more.

A few of my favorite bands/groups/singers are: Future Unlimited, Apparat, Coldplay, Fever Ray, Little Dragon, Ludovico Einaudi, Nirvana, Rob Zombie, Alice In Chains, AC/DC, Metallica, Pink Floyd, Neil Young, CHVRN, ร˜fdream, Tash Sultana, etc.

I love to find and listen to new amazing songs or artists so if you think I would like something in particular, please do suggest it!

Favorite Books

I LOVE LOVE LOVE to read. I'm a constant reader. I own tons of books but the majority of them came from second-hand shops because there are no bookstores anywhere near me. sadface

I love to read fantasy, historical fiction, horror, and general fiction, in all age groups. I read middle grade, YA, and adult, including classics.

I'm slowly working my way through some 'important book' lists and always do a Goodreads challenge. I also run a book review blog but am currently on hiatus. You can find me on Bookstagram daily (at lazydaylit) where I post books I'm reading, recently purchased, etc.

Some of my absolute favorites are: Harry Potter, Shades of Magic Trilogy Wuthering Heights, Tuck Everlasting, The Hobbit, His Dark Materials Trilogy, The Chronicles Of Narnia, The Book Thief, and more

My favorite authors include: Edgar Allan Poe, Neil Gaiman, J.K. Rowling, VE Schwab, Patricia A. McKillip, V.C. Andrews, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, and more

Currently reading (12/14/2018) Babel: Around the World in Twenty Languages by Gaston Dorren

Favorite Movies

I really love Tim Burton movies such as The Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline, Sleepy Hollow, Sweeney Todd, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, etc. and Rob Zombie films

but I also love: August Rush, Across The Universe, Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights (with Tom Hardy), The Secret Garden, Legend, Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, Harry Potter, Lord Of The Rings, Pirates Of the Caribbean, The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, Interview With the Vampire, The Addams Family, Fight Club, and more. I'm a huge fan of Helena Bonham Carter.

Favorite Television

I don't have cable. I prefer to read books or watch movies. I do occasionally watch tv shows on Netflix, though, and have a few favorites from my childhood, such as: AAAAHHH!!! Real Monsters!, The Simpsons, some Adult Swim shows like Robot Chicken, Futurama, or Aquateen Hunger Force, Game Of Thrones, Supernatural, Doctor Who, American Horror Story, Once Upon A Time, Merlin, etc. I prefer educational channels like Discovery, PBS, and the Science Channel and shows like Survivorman and Ghost Hunters. I love to watch nature/animal shows or anything about the universe.

Favorite Crafts

I love to do all sorts of crafts. I like to give everything a try so I am constantly doing new things. I paint, draw, paper craft, do caligraphy, crochet, sew, felt, stamp, make Harry Potter wands, miniature books, and so much more!

I currently mostly art journal, travel journal, bullet journal, etc.

Random things I love

Anything bookish will most likely get you a heart. Bookmarks, page tabs, art prints, pins, book quotes, etc. I love bookmarks and would love some of the library freebies, storebought, from Etsy sellers, or even homemade!

Animals I adore: Polar bears, tigers, toucans, raccoons, deer (cutesy kind, not hunting kind), black cats, spiders, snakes, panda bears, black bears, manatees, whales, sea turtles. I basically love animals in general.

  • Trees! (I'm an Earth element so I really love anything to do with nature, with earthy colors such as greens and browns. I also LOVE ferns and ivy.)

  • I love all colors besides pink and purple. (So if you are wondering what colors to make something, anything works. I love blue and green together, black and white or black and red together, etc.)

  • book quotes (or quotes in general)
  • Black and White Monochrome colorschemes
  • Butterflies (especially in black and white but also in color)
  • Glow in the dark things or things that glow in a blacklight (neon colors)
  • Rubber stamps/ stamped images
  • postage stamps (I'm not an avid collector but started a small collection as a kid and have added to it slowly over the years.)
  • Ribbon
  • Photography
  • astronomy/space (stars, planets, galaxies, etc)
  • Travel
  • Castles (real or fantasy)
  • Old Houses
  • Creepy, macabre things like haunted houses, ghosts, spiderwebs, black cats, nightmares, ghosts, etc
  • Watercolors
  • I LOVE pen ink art
  • A favorite artist of mine is Abigail Larson.
  • Vintage, Victorian, Gothic, or other old fashioned things.
  • Trying new recipes. (Especially homemade things. I'm not a fan of boxed foods)
  • Cinnamon candies & cinnamon scents
  • and I'll try to add to this with more detailed things once I get the hang of this site.


  • Washi/Deco Tape (even just small lengths of it on a piece of plastic so it can be re-used would be nice. I just discovered this so I don't really have any at all.)
  • decorative paper / napkins
  • travel ephemera
  • punches (I don't own any) *stamps or stamped images
  • postcards (from anywhere, but preferably ones that have locations on them.)

TEA * I love lemongrass tea, lemon, fruity, floral types of teas.

Things I don't like

*Religion / Religious material - Please, no bible quotes, pamphlets, etc. I don't mind if you're religious but I'd rather not hear about it or receive anything related to religion unless I sign up for a Christmas card swap and that's all you have. I'd love any winter themed or Santa themed cards instead.

  • Glitter. Especially loose glitter. If it's under a clear gloss or something it's not so bad but if it is going to get on me, I don't want it.

  • Extremely girly things like princesses, pink cartoonish flowers, shoes, make-up, tiara's, dresses, etc (Unless it's for a child swap because I do have a daughter that likes these things.)

*Also, girly things like lipstick and nailpolish. I don't wear it.

  • Vanilla scents. (or anything else similarly stuffy like baked food scents.)

  • Soda (except Rootbeer), Fastfood, junk food, and some candies (except cinnamon candy & chocolate.)

  • Text talk like 'u' instead of you, etc. (pet peeve)

  • Coffee. (It's not my cup of tea. I do occasionally like an iced coffee or mocha frappe.)

  • Racism, bigotry, prejudice, hatefulness, closed-mindedness, sexism, xenophobia, etc.

  • Cigarette smoke. I understand if your a smoker and get me as a partner but PLEASE add a scent if you smoke in your house (i will be able to smell it on the envelope, etc).


If you don't receive something from me, PLEASE let me know, message me, so I can re-send it and make up for it. I promise I won't 'flake' on anyone. I always send my swaps out on time and if by any chance I am unable to, I will make sure to let you know first.

ELECTRONIC: I always send my electronic email swaps with the swap name as the 'subject'. Recently I have been putting 'SWAPBOT' before the swap name so you don't browse over it in case it ends up in your spam folder. I CANNOT see/read 'DOC' attachments. I do not own/cannot purchase Microsoft Office so please put it in the email or attach a PDF file.

[I'm keeping this list here to make it easier for me to remember, and also just in case these people happen to see this, we can work things out better.]
