About Me

I love collecting stickers, stamps and getting mail and joined this site ages ago, but didn't do much swapping until late 2016. I look forward to sending out happy mail and can't wait to meet some new friends in the swaps. I also love traveling and hearing about far away lands.

I'm a 30 something newlywed who lives out in the country with my husband, son and two paint horses. Luckily, it's not too far from Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas, so it's kinda the best of both country and city. I'm currently spending my free time doing all sorts of crafty things, going on adventures with my husband, browsing the internet, or working in my garden.

My art is usually bright and happy unless the theme of the swap, or the receiver's profile suggests otherwise.

I've been away during the past year (2017) due to illness and pregnancy and new baby. Hopefully I will have time this year to do a swap now and again. I missed it!

Stuff I like

Traveling - I get to go home to visit St. Louis often, and love to visit Disney World when possible. I also get to go to Lyon, France each July and speak some French and a very tiny bit of Russian.

Disney things - Especially Donald and the villains, but love most all the characters

Cute things of all kinds

Halloween - mostly cute stuff, but spooky is okay too!

Strawberries

Horses - Especially Paints (we have two) and Clydesdales/drafts.

Clovers

Animals - Especially Tigers, Snow Leopards, Lions, Dragons, Kangaroos

Lego bricks

Pokemon - Ponyta and Pikachu are my favs!

Comic Characters: Superman, Daredevil, Elektra, Wolverine, Catwoman, Supergirl

St. Louis Cardinal baseball

Collecting/Wishing for...

Stickers

I love stickers and have collected them since about 1985. I love all types of stickers: Cute ones, silly ones, animal ones, Disney ones, flake stickers, foreign ones, you get the idea - I hope.

While I don't need any reward stickers in English, if you live somewhere with reward stickers in other languages, I'd love to acquire some of those!


Postage Stamps

I used to collect these in the 1990s, and have recently rediscovered stamp collecting. I enjoy looking at the art and seeing what is important to a country at that time.

My collection is topical and I love both domestic and international stamps. I've listed some of my favorite topics to collect below, but feel free to send anything you have! I enjoy looking at all of them :)

Some topics I'd love to have more of are:

Horses

Australian Animals

Flags

Foxes

Planes (specifically The Concorde, and Spirit of St. Louis)

Big Cats

Disney

Bees

Oddly shaped stamps

Rocks/Geology

Maps

Space

US Statehood

Halloween

Anything bright and colorful

Superman

Harry Potter


ATCs

I've just recently started making these tiny works of art. It's a lot of fun, though at first it did take a bit to get used to the small canvas.

Mine are usually brightly colored and currently I'm loving using watercolors pencils with hand drawn or stamped images.

I'd love to collect more and right now I don't have any specific topics I'm collecting, but anything from my favorites/likes would be awesome!


Post cards

Another thing I used to collect in the 1990s. I still buy them occasionally, but not as much and have sent off many of the ones that I used to have. I love to buy and send them as I travel around. Just let me know if you want me to send you one from Texas. I'd prefer to receive my cards naked and stamped, yet open to getting blank ones too.

I'm not picky about what I receive for these. It's just fun for me to get them! Handmade ones are fun as long as they are sturdy and can handle going through the mail!

Can't think of something to write? Decorate it with art or stickers, but don't forget your username!


Junk Journal

I love to get anything random to add to my new obsession. I love maps and anything related to travel. Handmade tags for this would be neat - I could add them into pockets. Any ideas would be awesome!


Washi

I don't have much but I'm slowly growing my collection. I pretty much love it all! My favorites are animals, cute things, travel & Halloween.


Halloween!

I am still collecting Halloween & Harry Potter ephemera for a journal I'm doing about my best friend who passed away recently. Feel free to send Halloween stuff year round to me!

Looking mostly for things like stickers, washi, ephemera, cards, postcards, charms, etc.


Other

I also collect the following things :

~Rocks - Geology is awesome!

~Maps - Geography is also awesome!

~Disney Pins - Yay for pin trading!

Favorite Television

I don't watch much new TV any more, but here are some of the ones I like to watch: Bones, Veronica Mars, Smallville, Frasier, Dukes of Hazzard, CSI Miami, Daria, and My Little Pony.

I do watch several crafty you tubers while I work on my scrapping or quilting. Current favorites are: Inkie Quill, Kitty Scrapper, Mercy Tiara, Shimelle, and Sugar.

I'm open to watch any other crafters you might think are neat - or even you if you're a you tuber!

My Little Pony Stuffs!

My Little Pony - All gens ok with me :) Grew up watching G1 and my first pony was Apple Jack. I still have her (but not the tail). My other favs are:

G1 - Apple Jack, Tex, Steamer, Firefly, Paradise, Skyflier, Tabby, Zig Zag, Sugarberry, Flower Bouquet, Seashell, Baby Yoyo, Baby Ribs, Glow, and Barnacle.

G2 - Berry Bright, Teddy

G3 - Fingerpaints, Strawberry Swirl, Desert Blossom, Kimono, Rarity, Toola-Roola #2 (white), Bumblesweet, Kiwi Tart, Pumpkin Tart, and Denim Blue

G4 - Bumblesweet, HoneyBuzz, Fluttershy, Apple Jack, Rainbow Dash, Queen Chrysalis, Nightmare Moon, Zecora, Pinkie Pie, Spitfire, Twilight Sky, Big Macintosh, Daring Do, Trixie, and Pepperdance

AND SPIKE. Love all generations of SPIKE!

Not interested in...

I am always appreciative of happy mail, but I do have a few things I don't like/want/need:

~Teas - I don't really like anything except plain ol' unflavored Iced Tea, so unless I join a swap that requires it, I'd prefer something else. Hot chocolate would be an awesome alternative - if you have some. If not, I can use teas to send to do tea staining or send to other swappers :)

~Jewelry & Make up - I don't wear any except for my wedding ring and some on special occasions.

~Star Wars


Thanks for reading and I look forward to swapping with you!
