About Me



We were evacuated from the Bobcat fire, but the firefighters were able to save our house! My mailbox got burned but I am using my work address for incoming swaps.

FYI: I mail out from my local post office of Valyermo (see above), which is very old, tiny & rural. Nobody is even there...you just go in and drop mail into the chute! Things don't get scanned until they reach the next city.


About my life: Hi! I live in beautiful Juniper Hills, which is in the foothills of the Angeles Forest/San Gabriel Mountains above the Mojave Desert in Southern California, on 3 acres of nature with an organic vegetable garden, Beehive, fruit trees, grapevines, chickens, a cat, dog and my sweet husband. We get snow in the winter, summer rain & thunderstorms between the hot, dry days, beautiful sunsets, big night skies full of stars and lots of wildflowers in spring. We don't get a lot of fall color though since most of the trees are evergreens, and unfortunately there is that fire risk! It is very peaceful up here. On the weekends I live on my boat that's docked in the Channel Islands marina in Ventura, California (about an 1.5 hour drive from my house) and work at the Channel Islands Farmers Market with my daughter selling her natural body products and my botanical earrings. During the week I work a couple of days a week at our machine shop in the city of San Fernando doing aerospace stuff with my son & hubby.

My passions are traveling, going on road trips, or day trips to places I haven't been, light hiking/walking, boating, looking for sea shells, exploring new restaurants, walking through botanical gardens, museums, old graveyards, cathedrals, tea houses and flea markets. Although these days I just mostly stay at home, but I have been very fortunate to have traveled to many countries and will cherish those memories forever.

At home I love making things! In my She-Shed/Craft Studio I like to paint, do resin art for my Etsy shop, work with nature, do seasonal crafts, paper crafts, a little bit of sewing and making natural body products with my daughter. I also make wine, but it's not that great yet, haha!

Favorite stuff: I'm an 80's girl & enjoy New Wave (classic alt) but Beatles are my favorite. I like to watch the Hallmark channel when I'm feeling stressed and documentaries on the Disney app. . My favorite T.V shows are Magnum P.I., Frazier & I Love Lucy. Favorite movies are Grease, Little Mermaid & Pulp Fiction. My favorite colors are greens & coral/peach. Favorite number is 3. I wear a size small and size 6 shoe. My favorite scents are lemon and grapefruit. My favorite teas are popped rice & black with caffeine. My favorite food is salad. Favorite places I have traveled to are India, Paris and Yosemite. Right now I am looking for a good book to read that's witchy related. All my shows are not going on right now. I watched all the queen and princess shows, Outlander and the Handmaid's Tale.

I am a Leo and spiritual, but not religious. I love nature related things. Spirit dolls, good spells, good vibes. Interested in Ganesha, Hindu deities, Egyptian Gods/Goddesses, Bastet, Buddhism, Zen, Pagan and Celtic ways, meditation, Yoga and crystals. Herbal medicines, generally being healthy, positive thinking and essential oils, love and light etc...

My weekend home

Themes & Styles I like

Alice In Wonderland, Victorian, ocean, beach, desert, forest, Goddesses, mermaids (not kiddie/cartoony), fairies, elves, Egyptian stuff, India, English royalty, Irish stuff, French Shabby-Chic, spiritual (Pagan), zen, astrology, the moon and stars.

Things I enjoy receiving

I love receiving handmade items where I can tell love and pride were put into them-whatever your specialty is.

My daughter & son-in-law are trying for their 1st baby (my 1st grandchild) & I would love to receive handmade or natural (wood) baby items!

Items from around the world..like what a place is known for making.

I am collecting Starbucks 14 oz FULL size mugs: the BEEN THERE series & want: New Mexico, Utah, Kentucky, Florida, Chicago, New York, Washington "YOU ARE HERE" series I want: England, Italy, Paris, Netherlands, Budapest, Spain, Berlin, Vienna, Prague, Amsterdam, Slovakia, Glasgow.

sustainable living items...reuse recycle etc..

Sorry if I don't have enough ideas here. I have an amazon list too with many bread baking items under $5 & more lists below for specific swaps.

NOTE: Amazon now charges $5 for the gift wrap bag- You don't need to spend that extra $ on me ;)


Polly Pocket characters (the tiny ones from the 90s)

Native American jewelry,

A small Capidimonte rose.

Aurora Borealis Crystal Jewelry for re-purposing, so broken is fine.



Alice In Wonderland,






Fabric in themes & styles that I like.

Metallic pen.

Nicely handmade items.

hummingbird food .

I could use some baseball card sleeves for my ATC binder.

A beautiful, unique crystal.


hair ties & pretty barrettes an adult would wear.

Clear top coat polish.

Brown hair color-any shade.

Channel Islands

EXTRAS: If you want to include extras, a tea bag sealed in it's original wrapper would be much appreciated. I really don't care to receive loose papers & samples of washi tape. If you have any extra postcards or unwanted ATCs, I'd like those!

Dislikes/Things I won't use


Loose Papers & Washi Samples stress me out.

I HATE pencils & therefor erasers & sharpeners too.

I don't like country/Raggedy Anne type decor.

I don't like evil or bad-ass looking things.

I don't need anymore socks or notepads, please. I have so many from swaps, but I do love them :)

Joshua trees at the Abbey near my house


I send all my swaps with good intentions. If you ever have an issue please send me a message and give me the opportunity to correct any mistakes. Thank you.

have a beautiful day!

Comment: Thank you! Just an aside, my profile plainly says (several times) that I hate glitter, and you sent me a bunch of glitter extras. There was no need to send extras. Appreciate the thought, but not the glitter! :)
Response: Sorry about the extras with glitter on them. I hope you like the gift I made for you.

I just gave you, your 1200th "5" congrats!

mandigutterrose on Dec 30, 2019:

A fun little note about the witchy advent calendar you sent me: the pack of incense comes says it's from Wildomar, CA; I had to laugh because I am a two minute drive from the Lake Elsinore (my town)/Wildomar city limits! I had no idea we had an incense distributor here, but I keep being reaffirmed how small the world really is!

And thank you, I absolutely loved everything I received. It was really worth waiting for.

I just opened a Stocking stuffer swap you mailed back in Jan 2019. I love my tea cup and saucer. Thank you so much. I will always remember you when I see it in my curio cabinet.
