About Me

I'm back! I've been away for almost a year, but with this quarantine and SIP, I'm getting a bit restless. Maybe I can start crafting again.

PO BOX IS SMALL! Please write "DO NOT BEND" if sending anything larger than standard letter size. They were doing so well, but lately, a bunch of my larger letters and packages have been getting folded up and shoved in... Not happy about it, I've asked them to stop, but it's really out of my hands.

I do not flake. I may make mistakes, and I will do what I need to make things right, but I'm not a flaker.

Quick bio: I'm a 50-year old happily married mother to 2 grown children, a dog and a cat. I work full time and just got back into crafting!

My hobbies include reading, writing, photography, movies, and paper crafts! My favorite colors are black, darker reds, greens and blues.

LIKES: Vintage anything, books, bookmarks, die cut stickers, journal cards, washi, tags, note cards, stationery, journals, pretty papers, ribbon, lace, ephemera, flowers, botanicals, anything pretty!

Favorite Books

My favorite book genre is Paranormal - give me a vampire or witch or both any day! Favorite series are Harry Potter, A Discovery of Witches, Hunger Games, Charley Davidson series, The Passage, and Twilight (yes, don't judge! :D) I pretty much read anything except non-fiction. If you'd like to friend me on GoodReads, my handle is bouldermimi.

PLEASE do not send me non-fiction or self-help books. I rarely read them and will most likely donate.

Favorite Music

My favorite singers at the moment are Sia, Ed Sheeran, Kelly Clarkson, P!nk, and Adele. I grew up in the 80s and 90s so New Wave, Grunge and Alternative are my genres! So Green Day, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, REM, New Order, Beastie Boys, Howard Jones, and Backstreet Boys... gotta have a boy band!! I used to play violin, so I can listen to classical and opera and appreciate. I do like a lot of different stuff.

Favorite Movies

My favorite movie genre is action, but more of the comic book hero, Star Wars, Avengers type. Loved Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, but I also love period dramas like ANYTHING Jane Austen! Though not Austen, North and South (BBC) is one of my favorites!

Favorite Crafts

I just got into junk journal making! I'm here to swap for things I may never have picked up for myself and see what fun ways I can use my swaps in my journals! At this moment, I'm drawn more to the vintage look, but I like a lot of fun stuff too!

Please do not send...

Please, no food or teas. I'm not religious and my kids are grown, so I don't need anything geared towards kids like teachers stickers, Disney and other cartoon characters. I'm very particular about smells, too. I once got a package from a smoker... I had to throw everything out.

Comment: Thanks for the great swap! I adore the washi and notecards. When I saw that cute kitty with yarn was a Tender Thoughts notecard, I ran to the store and bought 2 packs! It is so precious. Oh, and that sticker is hilarious! I am so glad you sent it to me! It definitely made me laugh 😁 Thank you!

Comment: Thank you so much for the great envelope! Love the mixed media items, stickers and ephemra. I like your packing idea. Envelopes with tuck spots are so fun for junk journals.

Hello Friend!

splendorpursuit on Mar 16, 2019:

Hola! Don’t think I forgot you! I just got reeeeeally backed up with personal projects. I’m now almost done with my Swapbot stuff and can focus on my non deadlines stuff (meaning you!). 😉

splendorpursuit on Jan 18, 2019:

Hmmm. I’ve never junk journaled before but I’m sure I could find some stuff for you in my craft room. How about we do a hodgepodge of profile based stuff? However small or large as we want (well, except for your smallerish mail box...advice?).
