About Me

Hi! I recently rediscovered my love of swaps after a long hiatus. If your swap package has not arrived, please message me! I always send and if it has not arrived, it may have gotten lost in the mail....My name is Kim and I live in Oregon. I moved here June 2016 from Texas, where I am from originally. I am a Tupperware lady (yes, it is still around and it has changed quite a lot over the years!). I live in the middle of nowhere with a menagerie, livestock, my husband, and a few other people. We are building a homestead to help those who may need help physically, spiritually, and/or mentally and we would love to eventually share the love of Christ with them.

I have a funny obsession with Kinder Eggs (!), tea, pens, fountain pens, notebooks, journals, and nice paper. I enjoying cooking, taking Instax photos, journaling, crafting cute and nifty things, listening to music, watching movies, reading, learning new things, and going on adventures! I am also currently studying to become a falconer apprentice. I’m married to my soulmate and have a cute miniature long haired dachshund named Lady. I am excited to swap and look forward to meeting new people... I also look forward to sharing more of my story with you!

I am a fan of writing letters via snail mail so if you would like to become pen pals on the regular or private swapping, please don't be shy and let me know!

Favorite Crafts

I love to craft! Sewing, watercolor, coloring, pen calligraphy, crochet, knit, draw, felting, and making jewelry and soap to name a few. Many skills but a master at none lol

(I can always use more essential oils for soap! If you decide to send me a scent, I will be happy to send you a bar with it.)

Favorite Movies

🔸The Princess Bride 🔸Snowpiercer🔸Live. Die. Repeat🔸The Eagle Huntress🔸 Gladiator 🔸 Star Trek 🔸Roman Holiday 🔸Disney/Pixar films 🔸 Harry Potter series 🔸 The Lord of the Rings series 🔸 The Hobbit series 🔸 Amelie 🔸Chronicles of Narnia series 🔸 Marvel films 🔸 Miyazaki films 🔸 Planet Earth series 🔸 Sherlock Holmes 🔸 King Arthur 🔸 Stardust 🔸 Maze Runner 🔸 Tron Legacy 🔸The Martian 🔸Intersteller 🔸Indie and world cinema films 🔸Musicals

It's hard to pick a favorite... I love watching movies! I mostly enjoy adventure, sci-fi/fantasy, and comedy.

Favorite Books

I have many that I enjoy! I will have to come back to this category and update (lol). I mostly read romance, adventure/fantasy, craft books, and the Bible.

I am currently reading: ✨The Narnia series

✨ The Dark Tower series by Stephen King

A few of on my list of "to read" books:

✨ One Thousand Gifts

✨What Einstein Told His Chef by Robert L. Wolke

✨Artemis by Andy Weir

✨Throne of Glass series

A few favorites:

❤Harry Potter series

❤ Krista & Becca Ritchie Books

❤ A Wrinkle in Time

❤ Chronicles of Narnia series

❤ Tuesdays With Morrie

❤ The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto (I am a fan of Mitch Albom too)

Favorite Music

I LOVE music! I love classical, Christian, cello/piano accompaniments, blues, jazz, Frank Sinatra, hip-hop, pop hits, indie, anything!

(I admit, sometimes when a jazz or blues artist is "in the zone" and starts riffing, it gives me a headache. Only when it is prerecorded, not live. :) )

❣The fun in swapping is the surprises! I enjoy surprises. For those who would like to know what I like in particular, I’ve included some of them here. 😊 I am grateful for anything I receive. If it is something I cannot use, I will pass it on to someone who will love it!

My Post Office

Just an FYI about my local post office and how I send... Please, please, please message me if you are unhappy before rating so we can communicate why. ❤️ I have not had issues with ratings or my swaps to date. I enjoy putting together my swaps based on what my partner(s) like. If you are ever upset with what you've received, please send me a message and I will be happy to try again! If you haven't received a swap and it's been a while since I marked it as "sent", contact me and I will send again.

I live in a very rural area (one might call it “the sticks”). My local post office DOES NOT have the standard 9-5 working hours and also, my mail gets picked up past noon.

I drop off my letters and packages before or the day of the deadline. The postlady picks up the mail and it will be post marked that day. I am a stickler for getting my things out on time to be courteous to my swap partner. Sometimes there are delays due to my area, post hours, holidays, and even the weather.

Hello fellow, former Texan! Oregon is a beautiful place. I have visited various parts a few time. I read that you sell tupperware so I thought I'd see if there was actually a gif for that and of course there is (generic but related)! LOL
