About Me

Update: I recently started a full time job and it's a big adjustment so I will be taking a small swap bot break. I am not going away, just choosing smaller type swaps and less frequently. Please message me though, I will be checking in from time to time!

Hi! I am almost 40, live in Indiana, and stalk my mail carrier daily for my mail. I love to read, watch tv, and I am a foodie (I love to eat out). I love mail..it makes my day to go to the mailbox and find something exciting in it. I love crafts, and handmade items.

I am a open minded, non judgemental Christian. I run a non for profit charity called Home Of Our Own and we help foster kids who have aged out of care with any needs they may have.. We adopted one of my kids from foster care, so I have a special place in my heart for foster parents, and for all kinds of adoption.

I love all people, regardless of their religion, color, life choices, etc....can't we all just get along?

I love to read, mostly fiction, and I collect Nutcrackers, retro Christmas and stickers, and anything that has to do with fun mail.

I am a nerd. I love geeky stuff, nerd culture, anything that would have a convention or fandom about it, I love. I also am a gamer. My favorite game to play is Halo,(all of the Halo's except for Halo wars) but I also make time for Bioshock.

I am learning how to make junk journals (actually they are more like magpie journals-) and am obsessed with them !!! And smash books, could they BE any cooler????

I love anything Alice in Wonderland related, and children's book illustrations, and anything book or literature.

Fall is my all time favorite time of year,And Halloween is my favorite holiday. I would keep my house decorated for halloween year round, if it wouldn't make the neighbors nervous.

I also collect Santas, especially vintage and 50's era Christmas decor,aswell as Nightmare before Christmas.

I have 4 cats,(yes I am one of those women, but all of them have been rescued, so at least there's that ) , 2 teenagers, and a fantastic husband who hasn't left me yet, in spite of my swap bot habits

Favorite Books

Hunger Games, Stephanie Plum series, Dorothy must die series, Steven King, Anything magic and witchy, Harry Potter, Neil Gaiman, Sci fi and horror. I'd like to lie and put advanced and educational books here, but I am mostly about the fluff and useless information fiction. Basically, if I am at the library, and the cover looks shiny and has decent art, I will read it, especially if its sci fi or supernatural.

Favorite Television

Dr. Who, Game of Thrones, Walking dead,Once upon a time,Supernatural, Grimm, Big Bang, Buffy, Modern Family, a few reality tv shows (Alaska bush people ,Alaska Last Frontier). And my new obsession is Stranger Things. I. Just. Can't. Even

Favorite Crafts

Junk journals !! I also love primitives, stickers and decorated envelopes. Altered journals, and altered scrapbooks are also something I am learning how to make. I love all all art and wish I had more talent. My stick people don't even look like sticks, but hey, I'm getting better.

I adore anything Mary Engelbreit, she is my favorite artist.

Wish List

Pretty napkins for decopage/ junk journals.

I was an 80s kid so I love anything 80s (rainbow brite, care bears, alf, get along gang, etc. I love the retro video games as well especially Ms. Pac-Man, Donkey Kong Jr., Asteroids, Centerpede, Q-bert! I would love any crafts/items related to them!

.Notepads and sheets from notepads, Decorated paper clips,chipboard, die cuts, A flip book or pocket letter is ALWAYS welcome! Journal Charms would be lovely to receive!

Whatever craft you make /specialize in - I appreciate home made from the heart items. Postcards ( not written on ) , ink pads, anything I can use in a junk journal/smash book , Tags and journal pages , tuck ins and charms/ ribbons, stickers, Alice in wonderland, Nightmare before Christmas, Day of the Dead, Dr. Who, unused stamps, anything with cats, rubber stamps and supplies , Woodland and fairy tale creatures, Mermaids, Softies, Washi ( because come on, washi is Fabulous) , Vintage Halloween, Nutcrackers, Any holiday themed item, especially retro, Home made envelopes, decorated envelopes, Stationery. Oh and I love ANYTHING pink or glittery. If its pink AND glittery, you are guaranteed an automatic heart.

Swap botters have the biggest hearts and some are so very crafty!! I love displaying art or craft items that someone took time to make Honestly, I really am easy to please.

Treats for a Family Member

I have a 14 year old who loves Dr.who, Star Trek and all things space related. I have a 16 year old who loves Anime

Both of my boys love tea. At night before bed they have a snack and then they use my tea kettle and whatever teas someone send me in a swap and drink them and rate them. What can I say, we are nerds. ..

I was asked by the boy child to request hot chocolate as well. A swapper sent them some different hot chocolate flavors and you would have thought it was Christmas here, the way they reacted. So, hot chocolate is a welcome treat as well.


The types of postcards I like are : Children's books, any books, Handmade, Anything Sci fi or geek related Art, Mermaids, Fantasy, Cemeteries, Halloween or anything dark and spooky, Cartoon or Illustrated ,Pretty. Unusual or Bizarre. Cats. Disney..


People with long dislikes lists....

The only thing that I really don't like is beets. And up to now, I've never received a beet or anything produce related in the mail, so, safe to say, I am easy to please

East Coast Peeps...

My husband is from Massachusetts ...we are HUGE New England Patriots fans,so anything Patriots would make my year....ephemera is great- ads, brochures, stickers, tags, or anything that is Patriots football related.. very hard to find anything here in Indiana.

Comment: Yes, very odd that the children seem to be smiling shyly at the witch and ghouls at the window. Also the odd circle with the X in the center. This can't end well! Thank you.
