About Me

I am back after taking a long break from Swap bot, want to slowly get back into the swing of things.

Hi! I am 40 something,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 have been married for 20 years to the same man :) and we have a 20 year old son (adopted from foster care at the age of 12) and an almost 18 year old son. So, my nest will be changing status soon.

I am a open minded, non judgemental person. I work full time but love to embrace my hippie bohemian, gypsy style and have started making more homemade crafts and decorationsas a stress reliever. I am learning how to macrame and have started doing embroidery

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 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 3 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. I recently got a puppy. His name is Boris. He looks like baby scooby doo and is the new love of my life.

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.

Wish List

Stickers and postcards, anything Gypsy, bohemian , Any thing Sugar Skull. Wonderland teas, Pocket letters and items I can use to make them ANYTHING Hocus Pocus 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, 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 ) , 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, Dr. Who,
anything with cats, Woodland and fairy tale creatures, Mermaids, 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.


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

Happy Saturday to you! I just wanted to let you know that I posted a swap in TCHH for a Valentine's Happy Card Pocket swap if you'd like to check it out! I thought I would host it early that way everyone receives their cards in time for Valentine's. I hope you're having a great day! Hugs.
