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!
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.)

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.

A few favorites:
❤Harry Potter series

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

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.
