About Me

NOTE: I love Swap-bot and do take it seriously. Please contact me if you have not received my swap. I always send out my swaps on time. If you don't receive it then it must be lost in the mail. I have never flaked on a swap.

ALSO NOTE: For those who are postmark sticklers, please keep in mind that I mark my items sent when I put them in my mailbox. If I missed that days mail, it won't be picked up until the next day.

I always rate when I receive swaps and hope that my swap partners will do the same. Thank you!

Hello, I'm Shirley and I love to receive and send 'Happy Mail'! I'm married and have one son who is grown. We have a cat named Sofie who is like my baby girl. I love swapping, crafting, baking and reading!

My kitty sofie:

I love stickers, chocolate, crafty things for making cards, scrapbook paper, embellishments for ATC's, etc.


Amish anything! I'm a bit obsessed with Amish and would love postcards or anything with info about their way of life, or Amish things like cookbooks, pamphlets, etc.

I love papercrafting the most. I like to make my own cards & envelopes, bookmarks, etc. I love scrapbooking, craft supplies and all that fun stuff. I'm also a huge CAT lover and love anything with cats, woodland animals or really cute animals. My favorite colors are Pinks & Blues, but I aIso really love earth tones too! Oh and anything GLITTERY! I love things that sparkle :)

I also love anything Primitive (Prim), snowflakes, snowmen, gingerbread men, pumpkins, and anything to do with Autumn!


I am allergic to anything strawberry, hazelnuts and macadamia nuts.

Things I Would Like to Receive

Scrapbooking supplies: Washi tape, die cuts, scrapbook embelishments, papers for scrapbooking, gel pens, vellum, tags, adhesive gems, random craft supplies for ATC's, etc.

Mini Brads - all colors and sizes are wonderful! :)

Postcards: My favorite postcards are things like food, Autumn themed, cats, Vintage, black and white, holiday themes, Lighthouses, beach/shells, etc. Please no car related or sports postcards.

Notecards, I like blank notecards with pretty things with flowers, cute animals, food themes, etc.

Stickers - I love things like winter themes, all Christmas, winter stickers with snowflakes, hats, gloves, penguins, hearts, Suzy Zoo, anything glittery, flowers, cats, butterflies, cupcakes, beverages, owls, bunnies, bears, holidays, etc. - really love clear stickers :) Please DO NOT send Planner stickers, anything Anime, Sports or any that are clearly kids stickers (like Disney, Dora, SpongeBob, etc).

Christmas items - vintage Santas, snowmen, snowflakes, gingerbread men, fireplaces, sleighs, wreaths, candy canes, old fashioned scenes or natural looking. Please do not send me anything with elves on it.

Halloween items: I love Halloween, but please only send 'cute' Halloween items. I don't do gross, gory, scary or creepy. Please so spiders or creepy crawlers! Ewww!

Autumn - Autumn is my favorite season and would love any items related to that - stickers, die-cuts, ephemera, Halloween (only if it's cutesy), Thanksgiving, etc.

DECOS - I love exchanging Deco books. However, I am not interested in any that are specific, meaning you HAVE to paint, draw or rubber stamping on them. All others are welcome! :)


I love fun hot chocolate packets in all different flavors. I also love Milk chocolate. Please do not send me tea, I don't drink it anymore.

I love all kinds of candies (100,000 bars, British chocolate, tootsie rolls, etc), snack cakes and flavored chips and I love funyuns! Let me know if you would like to do a snack swap! We have a store here that gets really neat things from overseas. :)

Favorite Books

I love books! I'm very much into reading memoirs or real life stories that are not about anything scary or murder. I don't do scary, lol. I also like cozy mysteries, Amish romance, and some modern chick lit. I don't like historical anything.

Some of my favorite authors are:

Debbie Macomber

Beverly Lewis

Bailey Cates

Nicholas Sparks

Amanda Flowers

Favorite Crafts

I love crafting! Right now, my favorite thing to do is to make my own cards with matching envelopes. I love to make really pretty envelopes to put my swaps in as well.

I can make handmade cards with embellishments and I also make cards digitally in layout format using a software program and then I print and assemble them. I use 110lb cardstock for the cards and regular paper for the envelopes.

Making cards, bookmarks, magnets,etc is really fun. I also like to make Flip Books, Envelope Flip books and scrapbooking.

I'm always happy to receive anything related to card and bookmark making, including thin yarn for bookmark tassels, die cuts, glitter, glitter glues, embellishments, papers, etc.

ATC Wishlist

I LOVE ATC's and am having fun creating!

I like ATC's with STURDY backings. Please don't send me ATC's that can bend into a U or are flimsy. My favorite type are collage style with several layers - including things like fibers, embellishments, etc. but I'm open to other styles too. Please PM me if you would like to do a private swap. :)

Here are things that I would like to receive to help me create more of them:

Small vintage images, cats and kittens, holiday embellishments, sequins, small adhesive gems, thin adhesive ribbon, confetti, glittery string, small stamped images, ATC size backgrounds,etc.

Please Don't Send

I am really not very picky, but please do not send me Planner stickers, anything religious, kids or teacher stickers, anything with nuts, makeup or lotions, etc.

I do not need any post-it notes or note pads. Also, I do not have any need for Thank you cards - I have more than enough. :)

Please DO NOT send me any tea.

Please DO NOT send anything Anime, any Car related, Sports or anything kid themed (like Dora, SpongeBob, etc).

Also, I love Halloween items but they need to be 'cutesy'. I don't like anything scary or gory.

Private Swaps

I am open to private swaps for Deco's, ATC's, or whatever you can think of!

Please PM me if you would like to swap!

or if you have excess of any of those items, I would be happy to take them! :)

USAFwife rated for SF- Blind PC Swap #3- USA on Jan 20, 2021
Comment: Thanks for the nice card. :) You may be the first person I've heard say that they wish for snow! :) We don't seem to get much snow where we are here in Western Washington, just a lot of rain. I'm pretty much ok with that, though! Lived in plenty of snowy places (& moved here from Western Massachusetts). Hope you get some snow for your yard deco's! :)
Response: I'm glad you like the card! I do like the snow and like to have fun in it but I do get overwhelmed when there is too much! :)

Shirlley, your handmade Valentine's card is going in the mail now. Sorry for the day delay, I realized I didn't bring any "extras" to put inside to work yesterday.

Great Thanksgiving GIF on your profile. Saw it when I came here to make sure your rating, heart and comments did post on your page. Hope we swap again and I get to send to you

Thank you for all the October wishes! I'm not sure if it was intentional, but I love that you sent three glitter spiders - one for each of my tarantulas. I'm going to stick them on the outside of their enclosures, just in time for Halloween! 🎃
