About Me

I tend to send very near or on the send date, it's just what I do - I work better under the pressure of a deadline. My work doesn't suffer as a result of it - it flourishes :)

I am a 32 year old massage therapist and wife. I live in a little town in a little house along with a little dog, a big cat, and a handsome man. It's a pretty happy little life in rural North Dakota.

Some projects on my 'to try' list are: Bunting banners for home and small banners for cakes, garlands (paper, fabric and pompom), Needle Felting, modern calligraphy, and baking from old cook books.

NO candy or snacks PLEASE! Unless stated in swap requirements - in which case I certainly wouldn't hold it against my partner ...however IF they could replace the sweet treat with something non edible it would be greatly appreciated.

I pledge not to send lame stuff, please do the same.

I Love:

  • Pretty things that are useful
  • Colorful, fun office supply goodies
  • Cath Kidston
  • Ruffles
  • Doc Martin and Portwenn
  • British TV shows
  • EVERYTHING from DotCom Gift Shop! I freaking LOVE this store but they don't ship to the US and that makes me want to cry!
  • Tote Bags
  • Anything made from canvas, linen, or dropcloth (I love the texture)
  • Anything made with Oil Cloth or Laminated Cotton
  • Beautiful Graphic design
  • Wearing flowers in my hair
  • Iceland and Norway
  • all things Scandinavian.
  • North Dakota
  • Cooking
  • Anything Doilie or Lace theme
  • Tea Towels
  • Cheeky, sexy, pin up, burlesque (sexual content does not offend me)
  • Chalk Board Art
  • Zombies
  • Thrifty decorating blogs
  • Beautifully wrapped gifts (likewise - wrapping beautifully wrapped gifts!)
  • Old signs
  • Handy, pretty, cute everyday items from other countries.
  • Fabulous glittered goodness
  • Young Living Essential Oils
  • Also The Most AMAZING Skincare Ever

    My profile might read all doilies and cupcakes ... but I do have a snarky/saucy/sarcastic sense of humor rolled up with all that lace and shabby chic love. ;)

I wish for....

  • Washi Tape

  • Cute little sewing or stitched projects (lanyard, tea wallet, trinket bag, coin purse, cosmetic bag, etc.)

  • Platinum Preppy Fountain Pen - Black

  • A washcloth soap pouch

  • I enjoyed the book 'World War Z' and would welcome any books you've read with zombie or any other plague, or surviving the fall of modern society books.

  • Your Favorite (fill in blank) and a letter about why its your favorite. (really people, I mean 'whatever' you love, I love to try new things: toothpaste, spice, makeup/hair product, small gadget, anything that is your favorite!)

  • Pretty packaging supplies: glassine, kraft, celophane, bakers twine, etc.

  • A pretty flask (a little out of swap-bot range but it is on my wishlist nonetheless!)

  • MUG RUG! A mug rug! A mug rug!!!!!

  • Tea Towels/kitchen towels

  • Embroidery Goodness (pattern transfer paper, kitschy, trendy, vintagey, or unique embroidery patterns, tools, etc.)

  • Wool or Needle Felting Supplies

  • A letter opener

  • Spices or seasonings from your state, region or country. I love to cook and I love to try new things! (if packaging is not in English please include a description of what it is lol)

*My cooking is quite clean and healthy as I am very focused on weightloss, no snacks please :)

*********Favorite Colors**********

Coral, Peach, Aqua, Gold, Mint, Lime, Spring or Apple Green, White, Cream, Black, Grey (...anything pretty!)

Themes I Like

Birds, Bird Cages, eggs or nests.

Buck, and/or Doe, Antlers


Vintage Farmhouse/Cottage


Polka Dots


Tea Party / High Tea



I don't like....

Childish themes, Hearts, Stars, Rainbows, Teddybears, Angels, Kitties, Puppies, Fairies, Dragons, Dragonflies, Ladybugs, Smiley Faces, Anne Geddes, Precious Moments

Disney, Anime, Twilight/vampire, Diddl, Garfield, Winnie the Pooh, Looney Tunes, cartoons, Hipster Mustache, clowns, "inspirational" words like Fly, Dream, or Dance

Tourist postcards, stickers, childish or freebie stickers and tags, paper scraps (NO paper scraps PLEASE.)
