I live with my husband and our dogs Lucille and Albert in Illinois, right outside of Chicago. We like to go adventuring as a family. We spend a lot of time outside in the nicer weather hiking and exploring. We do a lot of road trips and drive cross country to national parks to explore. Lucille is luckily a good traveler as she wants to be where her people are. Albert is to be decided whether he will be a good traveler as he is just a puppy (he was born on May 1, 2022).
I like to craft stuff. I like papercrafts like making ATCS, Pocket Letters, and cards. I like fiber crafts like knitting and crocheting. I like thread crafts like sewing and cross stitch.
Sometimes I do non-craft stuff like cooking and yoga, and running. I even ran a marathon once! But lets face it, crafting is where my love is. I do obedience training with Lucille too. We are not into competitions or anything at this point. Just looking to have a well mannered dog.
I love rich saturated colors with lots of black and gray. Rich blues, purples, and emerald greens make my heart pitter patter. I am not such a huge fan of pastels or neons. It is ok to send me items not in my favorite colors. I will still use them or send them on in another swap.
I am not into cats. I have a big German Shepherd Dog (yes she is the German Shedder). She is my baby. I also have 2 fish tanks with fresh water/tropical fish.
I don't really love glittery stuff that sheds everywhere. IF the glitter sticks to it's intended surface that is ok. A glittery greeting card wouldn't drive me crazy.
I don't drink coffee or tea! Or eat fish (fish are pets not food).
I like to read supernatural romance type of novels. Like stuff by Ilona Andrews and Patricia Briggs. Give me a werewolf, a vampire and a magic user, please! I also love JIm Butcher's Dresden files. If only the next book would come out soon, I have been waiting forever!
I am non-religious. A religious card or stamp would not bug me. But holidays like Christmas are about family for me! I am not offended by religious imagery or art, but I am not wanting to receive sermons or religious writing.
Please don't talk politics to me! No really. Just don't do it. This would offend me much more then any religious talk or item.
DO NOT SEND ME BABY/CHILDREN RELATED ITEMS. I SUFFER FROM INFERTILITY AND SPENT YEARS GOING THROUGH UNSUCCESSFUL FERTILITY TREATMENTS. IF YOU SEND ME BABY ITEMS YOU ARE TRULY AN UNKIND PERSON.
I don't watch a lot of TV. I don't have cable so everything I watch is on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Disney+.
Doctor Who is always a favorite! I love all Marvel movies/tv shows.
Please do not feel the need to send extras. If they are not part of the swap requirements, you do not need to send them. It will not alter my rating of the swap
I love things like stickers, washi, paper (scrapbook or other items with pretty pictures), Collage paper, tissue papers, old book pages, old photographs, postcards, notecards, tags, die cuts, stamped images, stamps (used or not), and I will add more stuff as I think of it!
I have a new die cutting machine, so if you have duplicate dies and want to send them to me I would love that.
I really am happy to receive all swaps, please don't worry too hard about getting me something that exactly fits my profile! Swaps are for fun not stressing! Sometimes the unexpected item is the most fun.
I always send out my swaps! If you haven't received anything from me please let me know. I seriously have anxiety and worry about this a lot. I cannot control what happens with the mail and would feel awful if my swap does not arrive. Swapping should be fun and I wouldn't want my swap partner to feel like they were forgotten!
I have a postal scale and a thickness measuring tool. i try to be accurate with my postage. If I have come up short please let me know so I can make it up to you and also so I can learn from my mistakes!
PS If I haven't left a rating for you, it means I didn't receive a swap. I rate immediately upon opening an envelope or reading a PC.
