About Me

~ ALL ARE WELCOME HERE!!! ~

~ ~ ~ I LOVE EVERYONE! ~ ~ ~

=====================================

~ Attention: ~ Some cities are still catching up! If 3-4 weeks to a month, go by & you haven't received your swap from me (in the US), please let me know; I'm more than happy to resend it. If it's international, please allow over a month, six weeks, or more. Thank you! 😇's

Please rate me straight away, when you can. ~ It's greatly appreciated!!! Thank you. I can get anxiety, not knowing if you've received my swap! Feedback is important & helps us grow, as well.


Now...

About me? Hmmm. Just another spiritual BE-ing having a physical experience here in this wondrous world of ours! My name is, Zaadia. I’m an empathic HSP & social introvert; I pick up on resonate energy frequencies everywhere, throughout my life. Therefore, I cherish quiet me-time to recoup. I’m married to my best friend, who entered my life after my only child was grown (Experienced the single mom thing, when my son was three & forward. He's grown now.) My son lives 1.5 hrs away & like most parents feel, I don’t get to see him nearly enough, in this overly busy-designed life... I personally enjoy slow living & feel that’s what we’re all designed for, to explore our creativity & ultimately get to know OurSelves!

We currently have some TX land in the country, with plans of expanding, that backs up to a small lake below two sides of our land. (We’re high up on a large wooded hill, so it’s safe.) It’s perfect for our small-cat sanctuary. (Which is outside, with separate quarters, so NO cat hair should be around any swapping stuff!) We’ve taken in a couple of feral families to give them a place to stay and still be Free. It’s experimental & quite the experience in observing their behaviors with a whole family dynamic, unlike other humans who are quick to separate children from their parents! (Yes, male cats take an active role in parenting, given the chance! More on all that some other time; I’m working on a blog or book.) We consider them our Family, too! ... So any cat toys, are always welcome!

We have furry & feathered family members: a whole kitty colony, a sweet black & white rooster (he’s our ‘Soil Amendment Associate’, who luckily dodged a life of rooster fighting that he was born into! We adopted him from an elderly couple, who rescued him at three wks old, yet could no longer take care of him.) & a small green & gray parrot, whom I love all so very dearly and are especially important in our lives. (Please note: they are not around my potential swapping stuff and I trust you'll do the same, in kind, with the animals in your lives. Thank you.)


As for potential swaps...

=====================================

You are special to me! Your time, effort, presence and consideration when putting together a swap with me in mind, IS special to me! If it gets to me, arrives in our mailbox, tattered or whole, then I consider that to be special... so I will give Hearts!

I'm open to private swaps; feel free to contact me!

Please realize, with my health care background, I often practice hand washing with genuine sanitizing EO's & castille soap, so I stay away from the standard immune reducing toxic chemical cleaner brands!

I've also not licked a stamp or envelope, since the '80's or '90's, when I questioned the chemical component of the glue! I use the moist cloth & tape method, instead.

Please note: I’m the type who prefers quality over quantity, although I do have a lot to give & share from my own stash and may generously do so if I feel it may interest you. I enjoy giving surprise RAK's, especially for birthdays, or just because!

I also prefer practicality first (especially multipurpose things), before aesthetics in life, yet I also have exquisite taste and appreciate beautiful artwork / designs & the thought + care that goes into them.

=====================================

____________________________________________

~ Megan1230 ~

=====================================

~~~ The Amazing A3's!!!!!!!!! ~~~

Astonishing Angels of Awesomeness

~ My work-in-progress section, to highlight those Amazing Spirits, who've gone out of their way to either Thank me with with surprise Happy Mail, or Random Acts of Kindness, or "Angeled" a swap (see below). I am So Grateful for You!!!

~ Cajiky ~

~ EchoLima ~

~ MissCorina ~

=====================================

Even though, I feel that I must add the following, please know that I have way more Likes, than things I dislike, in life. So if you put your heart into a swap, I’ll know & Love it!!! If something on the list below, should make it’s way to me, I’ll pass it on, unless it’s repulsive or harmful!

=====================================

Not a fan of / don’t have a use for:

- The 3 D's - see below.

- Smokers! ~ Learn to Love yourself! (If you are truly ready & are coachable, contact me & I’ll offer beneficial, loving, no bs advice... for free!)

- Any animal products, obtained from the murderous slaughter of animals or thievery of their nourishment! (This includes recipes, using animal flesh or their other body parts, etc. Also, any animal skin prints or things depicting such, unless it's still representative of residing on a living animal.)

- Loose Glitter! - it’s terrible for our environment & hurts animals! (Only sealed, adhered, glued or contained eco-friendly loose glitter, please!

- Gum

- Alcohol - as a beverage or anything promoting it! Original alcohol was equal to kombucha; as time went on, it was made stronger by fermenting longer and today it’s very detrimental to body, mind and spirit.

- Horror - *Like alcohol, it invites soul-sucking disembodied entities, that feed off peoples negative emotions / frequencies & stress hormones! I can see, feel & observe this, when people subject themselves to such dense, nearly-stagnant vibrational activities! It, therefore, holds spirits back from discovering their full divinity of gifts! Why do that to yourself, or others? It's so sad to witness!!!!!!!!!

- Rooibus, honeybush or cassia-type-cinnamon teas

- Ad cards, raunchy, crude, hateful, ugly attitude Postcards (or superficial, not much effort, generalized messages, examples: just saying "Hi, Hello, Greetings or happy swapping" & nothing else ... saddens me!!!Please make an effort! ~ I do! If you’re stumped, tell me three random fun-facts about yourself or where you live.)

- Cheap-quality stickers / washi or paper (especially, no kid / teacher / reward or planner types)

- Licensed characters, cartoons or anime - except for Beatrix Potter, (Although, I do have an appreciation for these things, yet don't have any use for such presently in my life; like tattoos, I can appreciate the art, yet have no use for it on a personal basis. Make sense?)

- Commercialized holidays (ie: traditional types, pretty much all of them, these days! Although, I may participate in swaps that are related or give such items away. I do especially enjoy general seasonal things related to fall, winter, spring & summer)

- Polyester or synthetic fabrics, yuk!!!!

- Artificial Flavors or Chemical Fragrances (They’re loaded with Toxins, hormone disrupters and lower the immune system!)

- Dust, mold or smoke smells!

- Nonsensical Fear-based lifestyles & deliberate ignorance. (Choosing to feel Love, make efforts at Understanding with Connection & Self education are the Keys!!!)

- Flakers!!!!!!! - unless there's some dire situation, it's unnecessary and mean to do to someone! Communicate with me, if something has come up! I am a flexible & forgiving person, which can usually work something out.

~ ~ ~ The 3 D's: ~ ~ ~

(Disheartened Deflated Disappointments)...

=====================================

Tea Swaps I've yet to receive from: 😢

  • Tea for Thee # 89 ~ I sent concerned messages to both my partner & the coordinator. No response from my partner, who has also not been back on SB. (Sigh) Coordinator responded later, with suggestions of what I already did. I informed that I already had. No further response.

  • Tea which you don't like, we will like!!! nr. 17 ~ received mostly old, dirty, scuffed up teas, four of which weren't manufacturer sealed tea bag sleeved, yet placed in clear plastic baggies, which was against the swap requirements. I contacted my partner to inform and question the contents. They replied stating, they'll send more, however, I've yet to receive any.

  • I Love tea... A lot of tea! ~ a personal swap that I've yet to receive. I've contacted my partner many times, concerned for her. Finally she responded, explaining things, saying she'll send some soon. That was weeks ago; there's no sign of an update showing it was sent on the swap, nor further communication informing me when she sent it. [So this is still pending!?!?!]

Comment: Thank you for all the fun postcards. I love these postcard soup swaps. I do a lot of the scavenger hunts for postcards swaps so some of these will be very useful. I actually really like the 'animals of the underground' postcard. I wonder if that was one of your not likes or duplicates :) And thank you for the washi samples and stamps. Have a great day!
Response: You're very welcome. Glad to know they arrived safely & you're enjoying them! The **Animals of the Underground** pc is from a book of postcards in that theme, which I purchased at Half Price Books many years ago. I thought it was a neat concept & like them, too. Thanks for the rating, comments and heart. ~ Z

Comment: What a fun swap! I love how you decorated the envelope, though I should tell you, it did split open on one side, so I don't know if all the goodies made it... I did get a cute postcard, adorable thank you card with cat sticky notes inside (nice touch!), some washi tape samples, perfect for spring, a mini sheet of stickers and some washi sticker flakes, along with two cute mini envies and some paper punch confetti. So much great stuff! Thank [email protected]
Response: So glad to know it arrived; although, it's sad that it ripped & odd, too, considering I don't think I put anything sticky on the envelope, that might have caught on machinery. (Just doodles.) I reviewed my pictures. So it sounds like you received the entire contents, if the note card, with a personal message to you, was also in there? I'm so happy to know you had fun! Thanks for the rating, comments and the Heart! ~ Z
