About Me

The company I work for is sponsoring a local non-profit's program for at risk youth to develop entrepreneurship skills. Currently they are seek donations for a jewelry start up that will upcycle pieces into new jewelry items and ornaments. Items can be old, unwanted and even broken jewelry. Even jewelry tools. If you have theses items and wish to donate them, you may send them to me especially if you are already sending a package (ie the Magic Boxes). I will accept them through April.

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. I hope to have a career in museum work soon.

I just started 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.

Extras: As much as I love extras, I have so much stuff it's insane. If you could avoid sending extras, I'd actually appreciate it as I'm trying to use up what I have right now.

A-Anime, Absolute Boyfriend

G-gnomes/gnome village stuff, glitter
H-Hello Kitty, Hummingmint, Harujuku
I-Ice Cream
J-Japanese culture, Judy Chicago (The Dinner Party)
K-Kawaii, Kitchy things, Keri Smith
L-Liquid eyeliner, lipstick, lolita
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
P-Passion Planner, pink, pandas, postcards, Pyrex, Pumpkin spice
Q-Quilting, Queen Elizabeth II
R-Rainbows, Rockabilly/retro, rubber duckies, Rosario Vampire,

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,
Z- ziltch for letter z

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 Compact 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.

Comment: Thank you for your list!
Comment: Thanks for resending! The note card made me smile and I can always use washi tape samples! I hope your area hasn't seen the flooding that other Wisconsin and midwest areas have seen! Be safe! I hope spring really is right around the corner!
Comment: Thank you for sharing your list. You don't celebrate your birthday? at all or you just don't make a party? I make a cake every year. Even if I only celebrate with my son. Only I don't use candles anymore, because I do not count my years anymore ;)
Response: I'm usually on vacation so we have a dinner out, but its not like when I was a kid and everyone came over with presents and we ate cake.
Comment: Thanks so much for your list. Things sure were easier back when we were kids, weren't they?! lol
Comment: Thanks for your list. I identified with so many things on there! Basically, the theme of not having to worry about anything. *sigh*
