About Me

I just started a group if anyone is interested It's called Paper and it's open to serious, fun, reliable and quick swappers who don't forget to rate. Please join if you fit these criteria.

I love animals, I have two rescue dogs, a rescue cat, and a bunny. Most of my time is spent being lazy with them. Spend lots of time being an animal advocate, which is why my friends nicknamed me Animal. My user name is an homage to lab animals everywhere. I love paper crafting, not a day goes by that I am not making something "artsy" or learning something new to try. I love taking pictures, my camera is practically attached to me. I have a full time job, a sometimes job and recently opened an Etsy store I hope to expand on as well. I like creepy things and cute things and basically anything with skulls on it.

Favorite Music

I'm very eclectic especially when it comes to my music taste! I listen to just about anything and everything, but lately feel "old" as I have not been keeping up with current songs/artist, which I feel horrible about as I used to promote bands locally and online YEARS ago. I feel like a fraud as I lived in Austin (the dying "Live Music Capital") my entire life until about 8 months ago. Most tuned to Radio stations: Country 80's pop Alternative/Rock but I do listen to EVERYTHING! Feel free to give me suggestions on what you're listening to right now :)

Favorite Television

I do my best not to watch TV but sometimes I get sucked in, I watch Doctor Who, Orphan Black, a lot of HGTV and crime shows. My husband watches a lot of car shows and hes got me watching Americas Got Talent lately.

Favorite Books

I love anything art/craft realated that I can get inspiration from. I also love books on crime, steampunk, mystery, etc. Sadly I collect books more than actually read them.

I also rescue books from a terrible fate and give them new life in the journals I make for myself and my Etsy shop.

Favorite Crafts

Making handmade journals and art books. I love to scrapbook; art journal, I work on at least 4 books at a time; paint; collage, probably one of my oldest and favorite things to do; making journals and planner charms for my Etsy shop.

Likes

TOP LIKES: Skulls (all styles- realistic-cartoony) and BUNNIES. Other Likes: Mammoth, Elephant, Rhinosorous, Scarab Beetles, Jelly Fish, steampunk, arts/crafts, sparkly/shiny things, "dark" things, happy things, dried flowers, hand drawn things, unique images, random photos, vintage things, new things, robots, dinosaurs, space, stars, aliens, anything HALLOWEEN (at any time of the year), glitter, confetti, sequence, unique packaging, decoupage papers, cool tissue paper designs, anything animal related, small toys (under 2 inches), zines, used stamps especially from other countries.... Favorite colors: Pink, Gray, Black, Green

HAVE Deco Books ♥ YOU WANT TO SEND ALONG? THROW IT IN ALONG WITH ANOTHER SWAP!

POSTCARDS: NAKED! - dont know what to write? Weird facts are cool! the more random the better, not to fond of touristy cards but I know how hard it can be to find cool ones.

Dislikes

Please do not send any food/drink items (as I don't drink tea or coffee and rarely if ever consume items from strangers unless its cake, candy or pizza haha), religious items (though holiday items are ok), TRASH - receipts (unless hand written or vintage, no heat printed receipts please I have plenty of my own I need to keep track of)... Ribbon (unless its skull/Halloween etc. related) I have soo much...if you want to trade for something you think I might like MSG me please.

I am not easily offended, unless you're threatening animals, then I'm likely to report you to the ASPCA and your local authorities.

The Fine Print

I love HEARTS!! It is always my goal to get a heart from you, if you feel otherwise please let me know. That being said, if I have an option of sending a PC naked or in an envelope, I will send naked because that makes me happy (sorry I'm weird y'all!).

I will send swaps on time unless I'm dead or imprisoned, so if you don't get my swap check the jail or the obits then let my family know!

☹️ I would probably join more swaps if everyone stopped requiring tea packets! 😝

I will RATE as soon as I get my mail from you and hope you would kindly do the same as that lets me know you recieved what I sent.

PLEASE try to write the name of the swap somewhere on the outside of the the envelope/package it helps me when rating. It would be greatly appreciated. I always try to do the same as it also helps me with keeping my outgoing mail straight! Thank you!!

Please message me here if needed as opposed to email if you are able as I typically only check my email if im looking for something specific.

Comment: 9/21/2017--Ty for the under the sea deco books. I wanted to let you know that the mailing envelope you mailed your swap in was damaged in the mailing process. The post office put the damaged envelope in a plastic bag. 3 deco books were in it with a pink sticky note. Happy swapping.
Response: OH no! I hope the books were ok! I'll make sure to use different envelopes next time, thanks for letting me know!
