Hello! My name is Jacki and I'm happy to swap with you.

Current favorite swaps are making/decorating envelopes, flipbooks, and crafting items for handmade journals (tags, pockets, journal cards, embellishments). I enjoy decoupaging with napkins to create interesting textures, using papers that create crinkly sounds, and finding ways to add fabric and trims. Working on getting better at collage and incorporating inks and paints.

I do not collect anything and rarely, if ever, swap ATCs or similar. I am trying to downsize my crafting supplies to items I will actually use... a constant struggle (sigh).

I enjoy exchanging letters on occasion, but I'm not great at being a consistent penpal, so one-time letter exchanges work best for me.

Welcome small or substantial private package swaps with established swappers. I offer RAKs regularly and enjoy sending little packages of goodies that make other people smile.

As a swapper, I am understanding and do not look for reasons to down-rate. I don't look at post marks, so if you're a few days late, I wouldn't notice and there's no need to even mention it. If you will be significantly late, just shoot me a quick message. If you mess up in some other way, message me and chances are it will be fine. If I mess up, I will do everything I can to fix it to your satisfaction.

I strive to encourage others in their craft, express gratitude for everything received, and live by the words of JM Barrie: "Be kinder than necessary."

EXTRAS – Please never feel obligated to send a bunch of extras my way. I give hearts freely and not based on extras. If you send more than I can use, I will happily pass items along. If you want to keep it simple, consider including just one of the following which is more than enough to make me smile: one botanical sticker, a little handwritten note, a book recommendation, an unused forever stamp, one non-touristy postcard, one pretty decorative paper napkin.

FAVORITE THEMES - Floral, botanical, nature, artsy, earth friendly, reading, animals, bees, butterflies, watercolor, things with texture, uplifting words and phrases, paper with stitching. I prefer artistic/illustrations over realistic images.

JOURNALS - Journaling tips or ideas. Always on the lookout for old book pages (any language), music paper, dyed paper, strips of lace or other trims, interesting images or phrases from books, tags, pockets, ephemera, small crocheted doilies or flowers to use in clusters, small flat buttons.

NON TOURISTY POSTCARDS – Starting a new junk journal project and looking for non-touristy postcards, written on and addressed to me would be great, but blank in an envelope will work, too. Would prefer postcards with artistic or creative images and not touristy postcards with places or advertisements, etc.

YOUR ART - Anything handmade by you, in any medium, any theme, would be a joy to receive. I especially adore embroidery, watercolor, and crochet (none of which I can do).

PACKAGES- Candles or melts (flowery or fresh scents), lip balm, mints, earth-friendly items, perfume samples, anything hand-crafted, wide fabric headbands, list of recommended books (mysteries especially), useful/practical items, unique items from your locale, anything from or inspired by my Etsy Favs.

SNACKS - Milk chocolate with crunchy/crispy bits, Fry's Turkish Delight, fizzy/effervescent candies like Swizzles Love Hearts and Brause-stäbchen, minty candies, salty and spicy snacks. Not a fan of dark chocolate, gummy candies, meat-based snacks, or herbal tea.

I will not make use of these kinds of things:

🚫 childish, cutesy, fantasy, celebrities, fashion
🚫 holiday related
🚫 touristy or promotional items
🚫 used postage, memo sheets, post-it notes
🚫 traveling items like friendship books, slams
🚫 religion, spirituality (angels, Bible, tarot cards, astrology)
🚫 things with human faces give me the creeps - like this and this and this
🚫 knick-knacks or little things that sit around the house with no purpose
🚫 jewelry, make-up, nail polish, bath bombs
🚫 no tea for me, please

Comment: What a marvellous letter! The seahors is glorious, and the postcards are fantastic - yellow *and* women properly put me into a tail spin. But also I very much enjoyed what you wrote and all the news. The story of the shooting was sad and I see the charge was yesterday: a very interesting case. Thanks for sharing!

Comment: I love the envelope! Napkin decoupage is so fun. I actually haven't tried the technique myself. (With cats and fur flying around, I'm sure it's better that I don't.) It's funny you say I'm an artist because I've always felt so uncreative I hesitate to call myself one. I haven't seen Wicked, but I've heard great things. Hope it was a good performance!

Comment: Thank you so much! Even the envelope was pink and decorated. My Jan journal is pink/turquoise/brown, so I kept some of the stickers. They peel off the envelope if you're slow and careful. <3 I'll be sure to use the card this year too.

Comment: Thanks Jacki! I love it all and your mushroom envie is adorable! Yes- it is a bit odd about your neighbors. Maybe they were just really busy from moving and your letter was swept to the side. I have a really creepy neighbor, so if I ever need to deal with him- I make my husband do it!🤓

Thank you for your letter from "I feel like writing about..." I thought those ideas you wrote about are very good. I will have to check them out. I'm 62 and have sleeping issues.
