About Me

7/23/22: I'm taking a break from Swap-bot in August because I have a vacation and I also just opened a business. I will return in September to continue the Brighten My Week Notecard series and the Swap The Rainbow Series. I will continue to check in from time to time but probably won't be on everyday.

My name is Marie. I live in northwest Wisconsin with my husband Eric and my furbaby R.E.O. I have a bachelors in Art History and started a masters, but realized it wasn't the path for me, but I still love art!

I'm currently in the process of opening a creative reuse center in my town. So anything crafty or artsy I can't use myself will go in my store to be used by one of my neighbors. :)

I used to have a YouTube channel about postal mail. If you are postal obsessed like me, you may be interested in my videos. Visit me at: Marie Loves Mail

I can not stress enough that I have NO intention of flaking. If you have not received something PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know PRIOR to giving me a bad rating so I can mend it and send a resend if necessary or look up the tracking number if its a larger package.


I've been seeing this cool ABC's of likes and I decided to try it. It seems fun so here it goes:

A-Anime, Absolute Boyfriend
B-Black Butler, Black Mirror
C-Coffee, coffee mugs, Ceres:Celestrial Legend, Christian related, cupcakes, cateye glasses
D-Dogs, Deco books (I'm ok with homers), The Dark Crystal is my favorite movie, Downton Abbey
E-Enamel pins,
F-Foreign Coins, Fruits Basket, Feminism, fashion
G-gnomes/gnome village stuff, glitter
H-Hummingmint, Harujuku
I-Ice Cream
J-Japanese culture, Judy Chicago (The Dinner Party)
K-Kawaii, Kitchy things, Keri Smith, K-Dramas
L-Liquid eyeliner, lipstick, lolita, Lee Minho
M-Mail and mail related stuff, mint green, mint flavor, Merlin (BBC), The Magicians (SyFy)
N- nodda for letter N
O-Once Upon a Time, Orville
P-Passion Planner, pink, pandas, postcards, Pyrex, Pumpkin spice, peppermint
Q-Quilting, Queen Elizabeth II
R-Rainbows, Rockabilly/retro, rubber duckies, Rosario Vampire, recycling
S-Sherlock (BBC), Socks, snowflakes, sewing
T-Tea (my favorites are Earl Gray and Mint), tea cups, teapots, typewriters
U-Unicorns, upcycling
V-Vampire Knight, vintage clothes and brooches, Van Gogh
W-Watermelons, washi tape,

Favorite Crafts

I love to scrapbook and make cards. That eventually turned into a love of making ATCs and Deco books as well. I don't consider myself "good" at any of those things but I sure love it!

I am an unashamed recycler and regifter. If I get something in a swap I can't use I'm going to pass it on because I know someone else can use it (other than throwing it away.) I am also an avid recycler. I love to make things out of something others would throw away. I reuse all the packaging I receive. Please don't be offended if I recycle something.


I use a Passion Planner for my planner because I need to run my life on half hour increments. I highly recommend a Passion Planner for busy people.


While I appreciate any and all extras, please don't send me list pad sheets or napkins. I have so many and I really just don't know what to do with them all since I really don't use them.

I'm not a Disney kind of gal. Sorry.

I HATE OWLS...an owl tried to eat my/parents dog once. He swooped in for the kill and thank God missed. Since then owls and I have not gotten along.

The mustache craze as well is over done. I understand the awesomeness of the original cause in which I support, however the commercialism of putting a mustache on everything to me is over rated and over done. No thanks please.

I REALLY dislike peanuts and peanut butter. I can't even stand the smell so please don't send anything with peanuts or peanut butter in it.

Comment: Thank you! The Mall of America is one of my bucket list items :)
Comment: Thank you so much for your notecard and the awesome tuck-ins! And thank you for hosting these swaps. They're really fun and awesome, and definitely needed during these dark times. I've been watching a lot of YouTube recently, but I'm hoping to catch up on some anime and manga when I have my ankle surgery. :-)

Comment: Lucky for me I like owls. Just saw 2 at a wild bird exhibit yesterday. One was tiny, about the size of a grapefruit, looked like the owl on the page you created. :) And I like that cat card you included. It's especially fun because it includes a little story about the cats on the back. Thanks for the deco and the card, Marie.

Comment: Wow, the box was pure delight to open and "dump" out onto my desk! I love orange more and more and needed more of it in my life! I love the tags, the ribbons, the masks (I so need these as I'm doing outdoor landscaping stuff in the HEAT). The necklace is so cute! I could go on but let me just say I will use everything you sent. Thank you so much. Had fun with this swap!

Comment: wow! what an amazing box - thank you for all the red goodies. I am especially excited about the christmas socks!
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful postcard! Monarch butterflies are gorgeous. I'm glad they make you think of your grandfather- red cardinals make me think of my dad so I understand the sentiment. Take care of yourself!
Fabriqueen rated for My Collections Notecard on Jun 18, 2022
Comment: Thank you so much for your note about your collections. I would never have thought of sugar packets, but I can see where there would eventually become a problem. I have two little rubber duckies dressed for Halloween. I love them! Have a wonderful day! Hugs, Diane
