About Me


I love my dog!

I was born on the big island of Hawaii and spent some of my childhood running around barefoot with my cousins among the coffee and macadamia plants my family grew. I jokingly say there must be saltwater in my blood because it seems I cannot get too far from the ocean and be happy!....I now live just outside of San Francisco and on a clear night can hear the waves crashing from my bed. (And sometimes even the sea lions barking!) I love the smell of the ocean air and the beach!

I live with my boyfriend, James, our dog Chili and my red-eared slider turtle named Mr. Turtle. We enjoy the outdoors, riding motorcycles (my boyfriend has 3!) or in our ratrod, garage sales, and of course.....walking on the beach.

I have always been an animal person and have always had at least one dog in my life. I love dogs! In my spare time, I volunteer at a local dog rescue. I am the person that all my friends call when they have an animal question! I am allergic to to cats and rabbits but that doesn't stop me from liking them anyways.

I'm interested in:

Ravens or crows

Sugar skulls


Native people and their history, art, etc. (anything on Hawaiian history is awesome! Queen Liliuokalani-Hawaii last Queen, any of the King Kamehameha's)

Hula or Tatitian dance

Edgar Allan Poe

James Michener

Pin-up girls

Hot rods or Rat Rods

Stationary, rubber stamps, stickers, jewelry, books or magazines on any of the above subjects will be greatly loved!

LUVS: dogs, the beach, Hawaiian or tropical items (especially the vintage style stuff!), volunteerism, thrift stores, dark chocolate, chocolate chip cookies, biscuits, truffles, marzipan, cheese flavored snacks, unusual food or candy from other countries, gummy candy, deco tape, embellishments, stickers (especially Kawaii flakes, scratch n' sniff, puffy or scrapbook types. NO reward or religious ones though!), paper punches, glitter glue, candles, gel pens, permanent markers, skincare samples (cleansers, eye creams and serums are my favorite but I like to try everything!) handmade soaps and individual foot soak or facial mud packs.

NO's/Please don't send me: White chocolate, hard candies, sour candies, peppermint (except for peppermint cocoa or coffee), postcards that aren't mailed, reward or teacher type stickers, ATCs (unless it's in my specified theme), or yarn. I really don't use pencils or erasers either.

Favorite Crafts

Pressed flowers, Flower arranging, scrapbooking, I'm learning to sew quilts, but still a newbie.

I love Deco's-but I don't know if that's really considered a craft.

I collect/I wish for:

I collect stickers and especially love the Kawaii sticker flakes, puffy, unusual or scrapbooking type. Dark and fruit chocolates, truffles, small cakes or cookies-unusual or local products are always good.

Right now, I'm wishing for:

Inchies ( I would maybe like to start a collection!!)

Quality pot holders

Paper flowers

Skeleton leaves

Washi tape

Colorful ink/stamp pads

Wood mounted stamps

Paper punchers that are one inch or bigger

Handmade soaps especially with goats milk or oatmeal

Stickles or any other type tubed glitter glue

Truffle chocolates

Never Again!

I have a healthy distaste for swappers that take advantage of others or try to bully their way through with excuses for bad swaps!

People I will never swap with again:



I can send:

Postcards of San Francisco, or the California coast, Fb's, Deco's, Slams, Stickerbags, Stickerbooks, Goodie Bags, unused birthday/greeting cards (the good kind, with a value of $2-$5 each) stickers, stationary, pressed pennies, asian candy or snacks, homemade organic dog treats or homemade envelopes.

One last thing!

I truely believe that we are all doing this because it's supposed to be fun. I love opening my mailbox and seeing packages from all around the world. That being said, I try my best to steer clear from dramatic BS and the people that love it. I realize that having lots of hens in the coop (lets face it, almost ALL hens!) there is going to be some friction, BUT, I'm determined to not let differences and abrasive personalities get under my skin and keep me from the love of swapping. I hope the same for you :)

Comment: Hello Chelsey, I would give you a dozen of hearts if possible!! Opening the box you sent me totally felt like Christmas ..you sent me so many things..some favourites and some I can't wait to try (I'm so curious about the savoury tea for example!). I hide somethings that I will give to my boyfriend for Christmas (but I will make sure to taste everything) and a couple of peanut butter cups for my sister. I will let you know what I think of everything =D Thanks SO much again. It was a delight for the eyes and the mouth! You are an amazing swapper. Ps. I hope my package will reach you soon as well!
Response: I'm glad that my package arrived safely to you. I try to only do one international package swap around Christmas time because of the cost but, I bought so many goodies for you that I wanted to include I had to get a bigger box! Thanks for swapping with me and the heart. I hope the snacks add some cheer to your holidays!
