About Me

Quick note: Please do not send any perfumed or strongly scented items, including stick and cone type incense. I've recently begin getting headaches from these items. Herbs, flowers and other natural scents are fine. Thank you!!

I like sewing fashion apparel, painting and crafting in general. I love to travel and experiencing new places, foods, cultures and people.

My other hobbies include hiking, camping, volunteering at a local Shakespearean theatre, cooking, and spending time with my family, friends and my cat.

My favorite colors are green and black, but love all colors except neon.

I love fashion, shoes, makeup and nail polish. I also love the outdoors, nature, and animals too. I have worked in primatology and veterinary medicine.

Only pagan religious items please.

Favorite Crafts

Fashion apparel sewing, painting (acrylics), jewelry making, some scrapbooking/smashbooking, found object art. I'm not sure if it's considered a craft, per se, but I love collecting found nature items. Rocks, feathers, moss, bits of sticks, leaves, shells, anything that captures my eye. If you see something you want to include for a swap for me, I would love that!

Favorite Books

Jane Austen is my favorite author, but I also like reading paranormal fantasy, mysteries, and non fiction books on travel, science and zoology. Some of my other favorite authors include A. Lee Martinez, Charles Dickens, MC Beaton, Elly Griffiths, and Shakespeare.

Favorite Music

I listen to music all day either on Spotify or my iPod. Always looking for new bands and my favorite is Silversun Pickups. I also like old punk, new wave, hard rock and most alternative music. My music tastes are pretty open to anything except country/western.


I have recently become a vegetarian (been coming for a long time), so please do not send any food with eggs or meat. I also do not drink alcohol due to several medical conditions and the medications I take to treat them.


I prefer handmade or natural items over store bought items. Vintage, Bohemian, Irish, Scottish, British and Celtic Items, Foreign language items, Beads and Charms, Rubber stamps, Fairy/Goddess , Art Nouveau (Mucha & Toulouse-Lautrec), Art Deco, Anthropology/Charles Darwin, Primatology (Gorillas are my favorite, but love all primates); Animals but specifically crows/raven, bats, cats, dogs, sharks, snakes, spiders and hedgehogs: (prefer more realistic depictions opposed to cartoonish) Winnie the Pooh (EH Shepard, not so much Disney) Sugar skulls and things slightly creepy :), Nature items Found objects and art made from them Personal style in art and decorative items is eclectic


Country, Anything too bright, garish or cartoonish, Americana, Anime, Religious items (besides pagan), Anything too cutesy or Holly Hobby/Mary Englebright


Goddess: The Morrighan mostly, but also Hekate, Diana, Brigid, Gaia, and Emer God: I work exclusively with the Horned God. Most specifically Cernnunos, but also Herne, The Green Man (Oak King/Holly King), and Pan. I work a lot with The Fey and Elements/Elementals and the pentacle and triple spiral symbols. I like all herbs and essential oils, but tend to steer away from Patchouli. It evokes memories of dirty hippies. ;) I work a lot with herbs, my favorites being oak moss, mugwort, and lavender. The animals I work with include the doe, crows/ravens/magpies/red-winged blackbird, and dragons. I resonate most with the Celtic mythology.


If I receive your swap, I will always rate you. So if you think you should have received a rating by me, please send me a message and make sure I did, in fact, get your package. I also always send my swaps. I will message you if I don't hear anything, but usually try to wait about 2 weeks before I will message on Swapbot first, then your email if I haven't heard back. Please let me know if you didn't get it and I have no issues resending. I really do put effort and energy into all the things I make for someone, so I want to make sure you receive it :)

Comment: SO GENEROUS! I can't even believe it, this package has really brightened my spirits, and whoa did they need brightening! I absolutely love everything, the candle holder is perfect for this time of year. I can't thank you enough. I must ask, where did you find these recipes cards? They are beyond perfect for a kitchen witch!!!
Response: Thank you for such a sweet rating. I found those cards on Etsy for a recipe swap. I thought they were so fun for spells, incense, etc. This is the link but I think if you search witch recipe cards or the like more sellers would come up: https://www.etsy.com/shop/Istriadesign?ref=s2-header-shopname

Comment: This is by far my favorite handmade gift ever! Over this past weekend I actually found a Fairie Door down a busy shopping street! It was on the side of a building where I'm sure hundreds of people walk past it every day without even noticing, but I did! I told my friend next time I will leave an offering there. You sent THE PERFECT gift to me :) I always leave food offerings for the birds & critters on Solstice. Thank you <3
Response: <3 thank you for such a lovely rating!

Fever rated for AMF: Cozy, Autumn Food Swap on Nov 9, 2016
Comment: Thank you so much! It was actually supposed to be 4 food items, not 3, but I really liked what you sent and appreciate the lovely postcards, too. So thank you very much for showing me autumn in your country. :) EDIT: Yes, but it said 4 foods and 1 drink, so that's 5 in total. But it's fine, I like the swap! :)
Response: Sorry, misread swap! Glad you liked what I sent.
Comment: I love the box! What a great idea. The skull is really amazing how did you make it? Thank you. Lynne

Comment: The mirror you decorated is absolutely adorable. I also really like the tarot deck you included. What a great package!
Comment: I absolutely LOVED what you sent me! IT was so fitting for my alter space! Thank you!
Comment: Thank you so much for this beautiful pocket letter! I love everything about it- the colors, the recipes and the lore. And I especially loved the clay items you sent. Did you make those? If so, you are one talented woman. That Green Man is out of this world. I looked at it and thought you bought it at a store and that it was made of stone, but upon further inspection, realized it was handmade! It's so beautiful. I also thank you for that gorgeous heart-shaped labridorite crystal. It is one of my favorite crystals and I added it to my other heart crystal collection and am actually about to put them out in the full moon to cleanse. Also, thank you for the wind chime- it is also just stunning. You did an excellent job for your first PL and I appreciate the love you put into this! Sending blessings for Mabon and the beautiful Harvest Moon. <3
Comment: Avery beautiful tin!!! Filled with wonderful altar needs. Thank you so much. Many hearts. Lynne

Comment: Thank you so much for a WONDERFUL package!!! I loved everything you sent. I really like the dragon cards, I like the artwork on them a lot as they use Dragons from all different cultures. The detox bath salts are fabulous. The beautiful cotton towel is so pretty and Fall-ish. Your letter was really nice to read and its lovely getting to reconnect with you. I also just LOVED the pretty bags you put everything into!!
Comment: Kristina! What a great package! I plan to use them all on Saturday night. I've not seen this deck and am eager to try it. The stone is lovely too. Many thanks.

Comment: Love love love :) I displayed your hanging ornaments in my garden!
Comment: I don't even know where to begin! This is such a beautiful swap! It is something I would happily buy at a store for lots of money, but would never be able to because there's so much thought and love in it. Love this package!!!
Comment: Yet another lovely package from Kristina <3 I've been wearing the necklace daily! And I'm deep into the book. I just love swapping with you so much. I'm working on your swaps as I send this message.
Response: Glad you liked it all and thanks for the rating!

LOVE the mobile you made for the Dyad WTA. Brilliant concept and wonderful art work. I plan to hang it on my front porch where it is safe from the elements and yet adds so much to the energy out there. I am honored to receive such a beautiful piece. (Wrapped gift for a Hallows opening)

Thank you for the most amazing angel package for the Q&P Celtic Tree Lore Series--Oak Swap. I love the tile and charms you made, the lovely acorn charm, the fairy door necklace, everything! The extra bracelet is lovely as well. Thank you also for being an excellent and proactive host and keeping such good communication. I hope to join more of your swaps in the future. ♥ Wish I could give you a 5 and lots of hearts, but I guess a star and a note will have to do. ♥

I've been reading the book (CHAKRAS) with much appreciation having worked with them for a long while. Its fun to be re-acquainted with info as well as learning new things. I deeply appreciate what you sent, and that you selected the Crown. I discovered that mine was indeed blocked, and I have been working to clear it and get it balanced again. Thank you again.

njstauter on Apr 23, 2015:

Got your package with the Chakra book, FLYING OINTMENT, detox, and other items. You must have had fun gathering them all. Thanks for your sweet generosity. May the Law of Return bless you abundantly in kind.

njstauter on Apr 22, 2015:

My bedroom is shades of violet and the information you sent me on the Crown Chakra is healing. I have been using a diffuser with essential oils and will spend time searching for what I need to work on the Crown. I know more is coming and I deeply, deeply appreciate it!
