About Me

UPDATE: I want to apologize to everyone that I still owe swaps to, I have been fighting my depression for a few weeks now and it has been a battle that I have been unable to overcome. It became even more difficult to keep up with everything that I had signed up for, when the things that I had already created and sent out came up missing. I have been trying desperately to remake everything that went missing and keep up with the items that I still needed to make and send and so I have become so far behind that my anxiety has been choking me on top of everything else.

I wanted to tell everyone that I am still making and sending things, it is going to take me some time to catch up but I will not just let it all fall away and disappear. I love this community and the creative people within it and hope that you will all have patience with me while I get a stranglehold on my issues and create and send out things that I will be proud to share and not just throw disappointing items into an envelope and send it out so that I can just say that it is done.

If you have any issues with anything that I have sent, or have not received something from me, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE message me! I swear that I will make sure you get what I promised to send and that it will not be trash/junk but rather have real thought and love put into it.

IMPORTANT: There was an issue with the mail that I was sending from my work and I have seen a few things that never made it to the person I posted to. IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED A SWAP FROM ME PLEASE MESSAGE ME BEFORE RATING!!!! I will be more then happy to send again! I am no longer sending from my job so there should not be any further issues but please know that I will NEVER flake!!!!

I am am 32 year old Woman, born and raised in Maryland. I recently bought my first home with my boyfriend and we brought my mother with us, which is both great (since I don't have to worry about her) and terrible at the same time. We have 4 cats and are fostering a friends pitbull until she gets a new place.

I both love and hate living in Maryland, I love it since it is the place I grew up and I know my area like the back of my hand. I also love how diverse and unique it is. The only downside is the terrible humidity in the summer and the fact that Spring and Fall are each only about a week long.

I was an Art History major and hope to one day go back to school to complete my BA and get my Masters and possibly my Ph.D! So art is a really big part of my life, I love ancient Greek art and architecture, Art Nouveau, Renaissance, Romanticism, and Baroque.

I have a huge love of Astronomy, mainly nebulaes and galaxies, I love space pictures with lots of colors but I am in love with most Hubble shots of space. Neil DeGrasse Tyson is amazing and hilarious in person! One of my favorite quotes is Carl Sagan's blue dot

I am Agnostic but love Greek Mythology, Hinduism, Buddhism, Ancient Egyptian, Celtic Mythology, folklore, Druidry, and Wicca. I ask that you please do not send me anything to try to convert me or blast my beliefs, I respect everyone's right to practice their own religion and ask only the same in return!

Favorite Music

I am a fan of all types of music, just not so much Country music. Favorite bands/singers: Twenty One Pilots Eve 6 Third Eye Blind Billie Holiday 311 ...I could go on but it would take a while

Comment: I contacted my partner 2 weeks after swap deadline and told her I had not received my swap. It may have gotten lost in the mail. Stitcheddreams wrote back saying she would resend it. It is now 3 1/2 weeks past the mailing deadline and I still have not received anything. If I do get something, I'd be happy to change my rating. I am not hopeful though as she has 5 other recent 1's saying she offered to resend and they received nothing too.

Comment: Thank you but you had no identification in this swap. Please put your swap ID and the name of the swap in the future. I had to wait and narrow down your swap by the postmark on the envelope.
Response: I'm sorry, I forgot to write the name of the swap before I sent them out

Comment: Hello, I’m sorry to be that person but the stickers did not meet the requirements listed in the swap. The flakes are to be authentic, branded stickers. I am willing to reswap and I can give the stickers back if you like, but the stickers were supposed to be authentic Japanese flakes
Response: I apologize, I thought them being Hello Kitty would have been ok. I will send another along shortly!
