About Me

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 I am starting my masters in Art History/Museum Studies in the fall. I hope to have a career in museum work soon.

I 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.

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.

Magic Box and Rainbow Swaps

Because of the Corona Virus' effect on daily life, I am putting a hold on the Magic Box swap series and the Swap the Rainbow series. I do not want people to feel like they need to go out and fight the crowds in the store to complete the swaps. I hope everyone stays safe!

UPDATE 6/2/20: I am choosing to start these back up as things are starting to become normal again. Please be careful and only swap if you feel safe doing so.

Comment: Hi Marie! I just love this swap! It is so much fun!! I'm a big grab bag fan and this is just as much fun as buying a grab bag!! Thank you for all the wonderful supplies in this box. My daughter (who is an artist, like a real one doing it as a living) and I had so much fun going through all the things and talking about what we could do with it! Happy Fall!
