About Me

I am a Hispanic, female who works in the optical world. I enjoy hiking, museums, art, good food, good tea, and being out in nature. I grew up in southern California but currently live in the PNW. Even though I have been here for 4 years I cannot get used to the gloominess and take many trips home to see family, see some sunshine and go to a sandy beach!

Favorite Crafts

I love paper crafting. Making cards and other paper goodies. I have weak wrists so I can fold paper but can't do things like crochet or knitting.

I also like making scrapbooks for my family. I recently made on for my niece's first year and it was so much fun to put together.

I also keep a personal journal that is also like a scrapbook.

Favorite Music

I love country music, and I can't even explain why. Miranda Lambert, The Wrights, Maddie and Tae, Carrie Underwood, Dolly Parton, Keith Urban, Shania Twain, Little Big Town, Maren Morris...the list goes on and on.

I also listen to a lot of older "Musica Romantica" (Romantic Music) that I grew up listening to. From artists like Rocio Durcal, Jose Jose, Anna Barbara, Los Bukis, Joan Sebastian, Juan Gabriel, Banda Machos, and more.

I am a 90s baby so I also love R&B and Pop music. My boyfriend is a late 80s baby so I have developed quite a fondness to 80s Rock.

Favorite Books

I love to read. I will read almost anything. On my beside I currently have this stack of books: "China Rich Girlfriend;" "The Vine Witch;" "Little Fires Everywhere;" "The Bette Davis Club;" "Surprise Me;" " Norse Mythology;" "Girl Wash Your Face;" "Kitchen Confidential" and "The Good Neighbor"

Also, my boyfriend is reading "Never Grow Up" by Jackie Chan to me as I fall asleep every night, it is a nice break from his Korea Escapee biography addiction. He was never much of a reader but he enjoys reading me to sleep so it's been a great way to get him to read. He only likes autobiographical books.

One of my co-workers loves to read romantic comedies so we both devour and an insane amount of romcoms on our kindles and give each other suggestions on what we should read next. I just finished reading "Christmas Shopaholic" by Sophie Kinsella, I binge-read through all the "All the Boys I loved Before" trilogy, "Your Perfect Year" by Charlotte Lucas, Mary Alice Monroe books and got addicted to mini-stories by Vi Keeland.

I also have a secret indulgence when it comes to books... I love to read celebrity autobiographical books. The most recent I've read was "Whiskey in a Teacup: What Growing Up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love, and Baking Biscuits" by Reese Witherspoon. I love books that tell a good story and have recipes in them so I couldn't help myself, plus I love anything set in the south! I have also read books by Ally Wong, Rob Lowe, Drew Berrymore, Anna Kendrick, Amy Schumer, Lauren Graham, and so many more!

Favorite Movies

I grew up loving animated movies. I mostly love anything Pixar and animated Disney!

Favorite Television

I am quite the TV binge-watcher. I just blew through all of Dharma and Greg. I watch Grey's Anatomy, Fresh Off the Boat, Blackish, The Good Place and my baby sister recently got me into Zoey's Infinite Playlist and I love it!

Favorite Color

Rose gold


Kawaii stickers Seasonal stickers Witchy stickers plant stickers Art postcards National parks postcards Herbal teas without caffeine Colorful gel pens The Happy Planner Stickers Erin Condren

Please only decorative stickers. I have too many functional stickers, enough to last me a lifetime.


Religious type items Confetti Loose glitter


I always mail my swaps on time. Please let me know if you haven't received a swap from me.

I rate as soon as I receive a piece of mail. Sometimes it's a few days before I check my PO box, but I usually pick up my mail a couple of times a week.

The day I mark as send is the day I drop off my mail. If it was marked a day or two later than what I had said I did on the letter or package itself then that is the post office doing! Please don't scold me for things that are out of my control.

Comment: Lovely card diecuts tag and washi!!! Thank you so much for the Ostara Greetings!! xx Gabi
Comment: Thank you for the mini tarot cards and gemstone chips. In the swap it asks for an explanation as to why you sent these items and how they relate to the theme, so please include that in the future. I was confused about what stones these were (are they clear quartz? rose quartz?) and what the tarot cards had to do with the overall spring theme. Thank you again!
