welcome

My name is Jacki and happy to swap with you! Here are a few things about me:

  • live in Michigan
  • work in education
  • lifelong learner
  • love autumn and Thanksgiving – favorite time of year
  • reader, especially mysteries
  • introvert – need some time spent in silence every day for my sanity
  • value diversity, tolerance, equality, and justice for all
  • love animals and those who love them

interests

I enjoy making decorated envies and putting together little packages and RAKs. I’m not super crafty, but will try paper crafts now and then. I do love to sew/quilt and make things like pillowcases, place mats, table runners, quilts, bags - no clothing.

If you are interested in a private swap for handmade items, message me anytime. Would love to sew something for you for something you make in your craft of choice.

wishes

  • Leafy things - anything in leaf theme or made from leaves, all colors not just autumn. I do not care for realistic images/photos of leaves.

  • Cute bicycle themed items, bikes with flowers, etc.

  • A sample of your handmade art/craft -- anything knit, crochet, embroidery, tatting, sewing, quilting, paint, watercolor, drawing, zentangle, felt, pottery, clay, beaded, wood, glass, etc.

  • Tea (sealed). Black is my favorite but I also drink green, matcha, and spiced. My current daily go-to is Numi English Breakfast Blend. Do not care for herbal or rooibos. Would love you forever if you sent me Qualitea Earl Grey (Sri Lanka) or Keisarin Morsian (Finland).

  • Small sweet treats, milk chocolate with something crunchy, kitkats, (I know it's good for you but the only dark chocolate I enjoy is hot cocoa)

  • Envelopes (that I can use) made of paper with interesting texture or made of vellum, translucent, crinkly, or onion skin paper

  • Letter from you with no obligation to write back - write about what you love or what interests you, no topic off-limits (even politics/religion). Challenge - send in a decorated envelope with different textures!

  • Any little unique item - love supporting independent or local shops

  • Bookmarks

  • Bags in all shapes and sizes - tote bags, small bags, pouches, etc. Not a fan of those with store names/logos on them. Love handmade!

  • Lidded boxes and containers in all sizes or materials except plastic

  • Soft ankle socks or fuzzy no-slip socks

  • Crocheted dishclothes

  • Die cuts (I have no device to make them myself)

  • Sewing notions that you use and recommend, including sewing machine needles (Schmetz size 90/14)

  • Fat quarters of premium quilt-shop quality 100% cotton fabric (no Joanne Fabrics, Walmart, or other discount fabrics - although Hobby Lobby is ok). See my Etsy fabric list for ideas of my style.

  • Non-touristy items from anywhere outside of US - things with writing in language other than English - things from middle eastern countries especially welcome. No plastic souvenirs.

  • Candles or wax melts (fav scents: jasmine, lilac, cinnamon, sandlewood, earthy, clean, lemon)

  • Your recipes for tried-and-true organic, natural, homemade cleaning products or beauty products - stuff you know works

  • Surprises

Dislikes include items that are baby, childish, Disney, fantasy, mythical, celebrities, fandom, fashion, sports, memo sheets, dollar store items, touristy items, cheap beauty products, random scraps of paper. I do not collect post cards, ATCs, used postage, etc. I am religion-friendly but I'm not Christian and do not use things that are Christmas, Easter, religious iconography including angels, goddesses, pagan, tarot cards, etc. Please do not send traveling items like friendship books, slams, etc – I have no clue.

swapping

Most swappers are good people and here for the right reasons. I will not look for reasons to down-rate you and I can be very understanding when things do not go as planned. I presume positive intent and give the benefit of doubt whenever possible. If you mess up on a swap, message me - chances are it will be fine. If I mess up, I’ll do everything I can to fix it to your satisfaction.

"Be kinder than necessary." JM Barrie, author of Peter Pan

thanks

Jackie, thank you for the happy mail (SEKS group). I've never been able to catch the planet stamps at my post office. They were always out! I've been trying to convince my husband to go to Painting with a Twist with me, he says he doesn't paint... Ugh! I'm jealous! LOL They sound like tremendous fun!! Yea, there is a location about 15 miles from here. You're so sweet :)
