About Me

Alt text what I pledged

UPDATE: I am now officially moved, please send everything to the address now listed, if anything is returned to you saying that the address is wrong, please make sure you have sent to the new address, thanks!

I love to read, swap, listen to music, sip on tea or flavored coffee.Coffee is heaven in a cup, plus the only way I can function. All while cuddling my adorable dog! I am currently doing a lot of deco pages and reading a ton to relax. I am disabled with fibromyalgia and bipolar disorder. Jedi, my bichepoo (bichon frise & mini poodle mix) is my emotional support dog.

I will be moving at the end of March and will update my address around the middle of March so as not to miss any swaps.

I live in an apartment, with bf. I live in a medium-sized town smack between Milwaukee, WI, and Chicago, IL. The most famous person to come out of my hometown/current town of residence is Mark Ruffalo.

Favorite Music

Alt Rock above al particularly Panic at the Disco, Mariana's Trench, and Green Day Pop/Top 40- or at least I loved it in the '90s and 00's (think P!nk, Blink 182, etc) Pop-Country if that makes any sense- Like Blake Shelton Soundtracks- 10 Things I Hate About You, RENT (movie cast), and A Walk to Remember Soundtrack Broadway- WIcked, RENT (Broadway cast), and Avenue Q

Likes & Dislikes

Likes

Dogs and coffee are two obsessions of mine. I can name most dog breeds by sight or description. I love Starbucks!!

My favorite colors are pink, purple, teal, and mint green. I love books, chocolate, coffee, tea, and dogs, as well as anything to do with those things.

I collect coffee mugs. I also collect bookish items (my favorite are candles) as well as dog-themed items.

I like to play the computer game The Sims 4 and I am currently working on the legacy challenge.

I love candy, mostly chocolate, I prefer milk or white with some other flavor or a filling, caramel, mint, raspberry, peppermint, orange coffee.

I love candles, I really love the ones with sweet or book themed scents.

Tea: Herbal

Stickers: craft quality stickers, animals, food or drink, non-religious holiday stickers

Harry Potter anything! I'm a Hufflepuff

Dislikes:

Colors: greens-not of the shade mentioned in likes, orange, and brown.

Scents: floral or woodsy or smoke

Topics/themes: Sexism, racism, misogyny, harm to animals or children, religious items, homophobic; spiders or cockroaches or scorpions

Tea: Caffeinated

Stickers: Cheap or kids stickers, religious, puffy

I HATE when people send me religious items-especially promoting a specific religion or church. Please do not include or send anything religious including bible verses. I respect your religion please respect my right to not be religious.

Favorite Crafts

Any type of paper crafts (mostly mini pls, and decos), I have mostly have been focusing on the decos, and use scrapbooking paper, stickers, lace, edging, glitter, embellishments, photographs, greeting cards, and postcards.

Swaps

I click for having sent the item on the date I put it in the mailbox, even if it's a holiday or Sunday and it will be picked up the next day, so if the date on the envelope doesn't match the sent day, this is why.

If something doesn't arrive please contact me, and I'll do my best to resend, please try to contact me before rating me a 1 or 3. I will never not send something,

I will message you if I will be sending late, which will happen very rarely! I don't have a car, due to my disability, so my bf mails things for me or takes me to the PO, so if something is late that is probably why.

Coupon Wishlist

.Secret clinical deodorant, Dove Men's personal care items, Halo Top ice cream, Enlightened ice cream, almond milk, Crest toothpaste or battery-operated toothbrushes, Sensodyne Pronamal toothpaste, Rold Gold pretzels, Skinny Pop popcorn Woolite delicate laundry detergent, Any free & clear laundry detergent, Halo dog food, Greenies dog treats, Cottonelle , chicken breast, canned tuna, , Zyrtec, frozen waffles, protein powder, Chrystal Light

Favorite Books Movie and TV

Dean Koontz, Marissa Meyer, Jim Butcher, Amanda Foody and Ellen Hopkins are some of my favorite authors.

I love the Harry Potter series both the books and the movies, though the books were better! I also love The Lunar Chronicles series, The Dresden Files, Stalking Jack the Ripper series and Odd Thomas series as well as. The Perks of Being a Wallflower is my all-time favorite book.

I like most YA books unless they have names I can't figure out with my dyslexia. I also enjoy sci-fi/fantasy and New Adult Romance.

My favorite movies are The Breakfast Club, Saved, A Walk to Remeber, Bring it On (only the first one), and many other 80s-00s teen movies, especially John Huges' movies.

My favorite TV shows include: Pretty Little Liars, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, This is Us, Marvel's Runaways, The Vampire Diaries, and The Handmaid's Tale.

Postcard Preferences

I prefer 4x6 cards so I can fit them in my albums to keep and look at as I collect them.

I love animals especially dogs, penguins, or anything cute and fuzzy.

I'm not big on touristy cards. I don't like religious cards at all.

Coffee, tea, chocolate, Harry Potter or book postcards are sure to get a heart!

Planners

I love to plan & swap planner goodies!

I have a Classic and a Mini Happy Planner though I mostly just use the classic.

I always love medical or dog car stickers or laundry, empty dishwasher, change sheets, and wash towels stickers, as those are the ones I use the most.

I love anything dog, penguin, coffee/tea, and reading/books related!

I also love weekly kits, but I know those can be expensive.

Comment: Wow, you read a lot! Great job. :) I usually read more scary stories in October, too. This year I tended to re-read old classics (we are still listening to Dracula by Stoker) and classic horror short stories. It was a different feeling. I've read a few of the ones you did, too. Did you have a favorite?
