About Me

(9.20.18) Apparently my P.O. forgot to put a yellow slip in my box (for overflow & large items) so I just got a TON of stuff all at once today! If you haven’t been rated yet for any swap that went out a while ago, I guarantee it’s in this pile! I will be working diligently to get everything rated as soon as humanly possible and I appreciate the patience and understanding! And I thought getting a P.O. Box would make everything simpler!! Hahha Maybe I need to get a bigger one!!

(7.22.18) I’m back!!!! A whole month away from swapping - I just couldn’t handle it any longer! I’ve reallllly missed getting all that awesomeness in the mail!

I have a new address, it’s a P.O. Box, so please make sure that’s the address you are using. (In case the site is showing my old address for some odd reason) Since this is a P.O. Box now, I will only checking it a minimum of once a week, so please bare with me on ratings. However, I will continue to rate as soon as I receive any swap!

Looking forward to some awesome swaps!!!

(Currently Updated as of: 04.14.18)

Firstly, I have a terrible sense of humor. It's dry, dirty, dark, and raunchy leaving you feeling riddled with terrible dad jokes. It's also entirely possible I'm incapable of writing basic and/or simple sentences. Ugh.

So.. in the spirit of the classic acronym K.I.S.S. , here's a bunch of random words that tickle my fancy..

cats/kittes/felines/gato/purrfectection offensive/profane/naughty/dirty/erotic/raunchy strange/unusual/scary/spooky/occult Great women of History . Hedy Lamarr.. swoon cult classics/film noir/classic slasher cartoons/90's television/anime/scifi

I Heart

  • Everything Cat's =^-^=
  • Colors: Purple (deep & warm like fuschia), jewel tones, and deep neons (not the obnoxious kind)
  • candy! : pressed sugar & cotton candys & dark chocolate (sea salt & chile) & different/unique
  • Lisa Frank!! (Honestly surprised how rarely listed this is on here..)
  • Studio Ghibli, Adventure Time, Soul Eater, Steven ⭐️ Universe, MLP,
  • glitters
  • iridescent & holographic
  • stars & hearts
  • robots & dinos & insects
  • mushrooms & wildflowers
  • psychedelic & folk & pop & gypsy & moroccan
  • Anthropomorphic
  • retro & vintage

  • *I’ve been wanting to get on this teas kick everyone’s been on!

Not so much

  • Country Rustic (dirty reds/greens/browns, moose & pine, white+red gingham)
  • ANISE yuck!
  • infant/young child themes
  • extreme princess girly girl themes (think Mean Girls/crowns & Leopard type girly, on the other hand I DO like kpop/pastel goth type girly though)
  • Extremely perfumed item like incense (but I do love good smelly stuff like candles lol)

Things I Collect

  • Cat Themed Coffee Mugs =^_^=
  • Bouncy Balls
  • Vintage Cameras

  • Sewing Machines
  • Feminist Art
  • Women’s Rights/Empowerment Art
  • Clocks
  • Bundt Pans

Wishlist 🦄

“Things I could use more of/Things I’m running low on” seemed a little too lengthy as a title for this section, so “wishlist” will have to do 🙃

  • PC’s: kitty =^_^=, tourist (country, landmark, etc.), science themed, pinup, famous works of art, museums, famous artists, women of history

  • colored printer paper

If anyone has any established sticker bags or decos (especially larger and/or adult themed) I’m super interested!! I want to participate in some more or these swaps but don’t really want to start any new ones! Haha!

Specs & Preferences

I got the most AMAZING pair of over-the-knee kitty socks and they’re too small!! ☹️ So I thought it time to make this section! 🙃

Specs: - (5’10” slender) - shirt: small/medium - dress: 4-6 - feets: 9

Preferences: - PC’s: I prefer them either blank OR naked (actually mailed) - I don’t know why, but for some reason it makes me sad when they’re written on but not mailed :l

How I Swap

what I pledged

  • I only sign up for swaps I know I can commit to.
  • I love my planet! I try to reuse as much packaging when possible :)
  • I only click “sent” after my item is out.
  • I try to take everything directly to the PO (I like to double check to make sure I apply the correct postage for anything more than a couple pieces of paper)
  • My PO is rather busy, so sometimes it may take a day or two to get a postmark. Fri-Sun may take even longer.
  • I always check pro’s and try my hardest to make every swap pro specific
  • I like to to go the extra mile, and I’ll add little extras whenever possible
  • I try to write a note when possible; especially about why I picked what I picked
  • Keeping up with multiple swaps can get tricky. I keep strict track of my swaps; when I sign up, deadline date, dates I send, dates I receive, what I receive, what and when I rate
  • I put a lot of time,effort, consideration, and money into my swaps. I assume others are the same way. I always rate, and I expect the same. Rating validates us as reliable and responsible swappers. It also lets each other know we’ve received our swaps.
  • If I don’t receive a rating after 2 weeks past a deadline, i will message my partner to make sure they’ve received their swap.
  • I try to communicate timely whenever the need arises

Help a Swapper Out!

I am REALLY wanting to join some more advanced/experienced groups.

I don’t want anyone to think that I don’t like or love the swaps they send me, but when I spend 12 straight hours on an ATC, or 5 days on a deco, I like to receive something comparable, ya know?

A lot of these groups (the really BA ones especially!) are invite only ☹️

So that’s why I’m reaching out to all of you! Anyone I’ve done past swaps with or just happened to stumble across this that can help a swapper out, I’d be super grateful!

I’m also more that happy to put together some photos of my past work, or even do private swaps 😁

I’m particularly interested in groups geared more towards ATC’s (since those have been my recent go-to) but I enjoy all crafts.

Thanks everyone!

Comment: Thank you very much for the beautiful ATC of Princess Carolyn!!! This is the first ATC I've ever gotten and it's from one of my favorite TV shows. I actually finished the 4th season yesterday soo it's very fresh in my mind and when I received the ATC, it was the perfect moment. Also, there is less than a week to season 5 so I can't wait. You did an awesome job for this ATC and I'm glad it was my first. Thanks so much ^^ <3

Hello, I still haven't received the Pick 2 tag from that I tagged you in July 29. :(

Welcome to Weirder Every Day!

Funny you should mention the magician stamps because when I bought the dragon stamps on Tuesday the magician stamos also lured me in.

manachai on Aug 15, 2018:

Thank you for the stickers! It sounds like you had an amazing time on your camping trip!

JuneRosebud on Aug 9, 2018:

Hi Kae! I'm sending my little 'thank you' envelope your way later today, I hope it reaches you soon! You can recognize it by a turqoise wax seal with a bow on the back :) Please let me know when it arrives! - Vivian
