Favorite Crafts

I haven't been crafting much lately but I love trying new things. Currently I'm experimenting with collages, mail art, mandalas and art journaling. I'm always up for trying new creative things though :)

About Me

I'm a 20 year old studying mental health and hoping to be a counselor or social worker. I spend a lot of time reading and doing yoga, but I also enjoy photography and other creative things. I love meeting new people and trying new things. Hopefully I can use Swapbot to do both!

I'm very new to this, so please bear with me if I ask stupid questions or commit any other faux pas!

Things I love

Animals (especially pandas), art (SEND ME YOURS!). creepy things, books of almost any kind, black and white photos, cameo, indie music, letters, antique keys, Buddhism, psychology, philosophy, yoga, inspirational (note: not religious) quotes, meditation, stationary/notebooks, Japanese culture, nature, sunflowers, hibiscus, orchids, hello kitty, handmade items, eco-friendly/green things, zines, and more that I can't seem to think of.

I'm collecting Box Tops for Education for my nieces and caps from Coke products for the rewards program (there are also codes printed on the inside of cases of Coke that I can use). Please send away!

If there is something on this list that you want to send- go ahead! I love learning and experiencing new things. Check out my wishlist if you need ideas.

Things I don't love

I love learning about new religions but I can't stand being preached to or having someone else's religion shoved on me. I'm ok with receiving religious items as long is its done tastefully and respectfully. Anything hateful or offensive to a particular person/group of people. I'm allergic to lemons and some other citrus.

About Swaps...

I can be disorganized sometimes so please write your username and the name of the swap on whatever you send.

I ALWAYS follow through on swaps so if you don't receive something from me when you're supposed to or if something is missing please let me know (preferably before rating) so I can resend.

I'm now caught up on ratings so if you're missing a rating from me, that means I didn't receive anything from you!!

If you participate in a swap I host please feel free to give me feedback :)

Comment: Dude your blog is so dope and colourful. Newer blogs are my favourite, just because it gives people a chance to develop exactly how they want. I've been a blogger for years, but making a new blog is such a good feeling!
Response: Thank you so much! Hopefully it develops into something great :) Thanks for taking a look and for giving me the heart!

Comment: Hi Kaitlyn! Thank you so much for your lovely message. I'm very happy you like my blog! Yes, it takes a lot of time to write everything in two languages. It's quite hard to switch from language after (almost) every sentence. (but it's a good practice for my English, hehe). If you want to, you could enter your e-mail adress (at the right side of the homepage), to receive a message when there are new posts.

Comment: Thank you for the Van Gogh postcard! I love him! :)
Response: Thank you for the heart! I'm glad you enjoyed the card :)
Comment: What a gorgeous card; I love van Gogh! I also love your ideas for little pick me ups. It seems that when I'm down, I can never think of those kinds of things; now I've got a pretty rainbow list right in front of me!
Response: Thank you for the heart! I'm glad you enjoyed the card. I think everyone has a little trouble remembering happy things when they aren't in a happy mood. I got a lot of the ideas from tinybuddha.com :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the pretty card
Response: Thanks for rating! I'm glad you liked the card

nikury rated for A encouraging Word Card on Apr 23, 2013
Comment: Thank you for the encouraging word card, it truly was encouraging! And thank you for the bookmarks and all the extras too. Love the playlists you created, must listen to those when I next need happiness or relaxation, and drink the teas while listening :) And the card, you took the picture in it? It's awesome! PS. I have the same things as you do, sometimes having better days, sometimes not so good days, but like you said it helps if I try to think things that make me smile and try to keep up the mantra "there will be better days ahead". I also have pretty bad social fears, but hopefully those fears become at least milder when years pass. At least I'm pretty optimistic that they will as when you get older you start to think less and less stupid stuff like "does everybody like me" or "does everybody approve the way I dress or have my hair" or "I hope I don't speak too silly stuff" :)
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! The photo on the card is mine- I have more photos on my flickr page. As I was writing the card, I realized how cheesy and cliche it probably sounded, but I meant every word :) It seems like we have a lot of the same issues. Social anxiety is something I still struggle with, but I think I've outgrown it to some extent. All we can do is stay positive and keep going! Let me know what you think of the playlists if you listen :) and message me if you ever need to talk

Just sending some Hugs Your Way.

No, the college simultaneously flaunts and jealousy guards Niffenegger. I'll have a better chance at dinner with Obama first! The book + paper arts program was closed to all BUT majors, even the fine arts majors could not get in; then, my last semester 2010, they opened a few spaces in their classes to campus-wide students as program was bankrupt and was nearly shut down entirely. That sort of thing was typical of the school. [sighhh] ☺

ARTG33K74 on Jan 30, 2013:

*Niffenegger - gar, spelling!! ☺

Audrey Neffinegger teaches in the paper arts center of the college I went to here in Chicago! ☺ She is an artist and does bookbinding and printmaking; she bound her first books herself.

Hey, Kaitlyn!! Happy Christmas, hope you are having a wonderful holiday season!! I am your partner for "wrap me a surprise", and I was wondering if you had received the package I sent...(I hope so!!) I know the mail may be slow this time of year, but I got a reminder about the swap, and it made me notice that i hadn't been rated..If you have received it, could you take just a moment to rate? And, of course, if you HAVEN'T received it, PLEASE let me know, I will re-send..I certainly don't want to you to go without your swap!! Thanks so much, and again, Merry Christmas!! --Sandi--
