About Me

My name is Shanna and I live in Columbus, Ohio with my husband, two kids!

I did swap bot a few years ago and loved it! I recently told a neighbor all about Swap-Bot and decided it was time to get back into the swing of things!

We started a pen pal group with a bunch of mothers for our kids to write back and forth throughout the summer. That has kept me busy but it has been so rewarding!

I look forward to swapping. I loved ATC swaps, mail art and lots of random info kind of letters. I also loved swaps that were all about crafty paper and ephemera. So I look forward to getting back into participating in those kinds of swaps!

Favorite Music

I honestly love it all. I go in genre bursts. Right now I'm rediscovering all the old country classics that I grew up to.

But I guess my fav is rock. Favorite and though is QUEEN!

Favorite Television

House of Cards Game of Thrones Orange is the New Black NatGeo 🙂 Anything about science and space

Favorite Books

I love anything Jodi Picoult and I also like personal development books. But I really love getting old books and using them to decorate.

Favorite Themes

I'm including this category because I LOVE WASHI TAPE! I use it to decorate everything. However, I'm going to list any and all themes that I love!

Anything geometric or simple shapes



nature - flowers, trees, leaves, cherry blossoms...

baby animals (bunnies, kittens...)

animals wearing glasses...there is something about them I just LOVE!

Water color or brush stroke themed

gold foil

script and handwritten typography

landscapes, especially mountains and rivers


Favorite Colors

I like all colors, however, I prefer a balanced color scheme.

I love gold foil. I love dark navy blue with lighter pastels like a pinks/yellows. I love creams as the base for most multi-colored items. I'm not into harsh colors like black and red. I prefer a more feminine palette.

My Wish List

♥Here are some wish list items & I'll try to update them regularly

Starbucks gift cards - I love me some coffee!!

Old Poetry Books - I like to use them in crafting.

Washi tape! Love love love it!

Embroidered fabric - I love floral and nautical themes and I am starting a quilt and I also regularly change out embroidery hoops and display embroidery.

Beads - my girls and I love to make jewelry and we like to use proper beads.

POETRY--by you!

stickers--any except holiday or reward ones (see themes above)

Postcards--unused, see themes...but any postcards would be awesome...not picky here!


Crocheted dish towels - my kitchen colors are yellow and blue...but I love anything bright and cheery for a dishcloth.

Handmade Bookmarks - either papercraft or fabric/textile. I especially love embroidered bookmarks

ATCs made by you (interested in swapping)

Comment: Thanks so much for the great book pages - really appreciate the Christian ones - I realised I didn't put on my profile that I welcome Christian themed items - so it was unexpected and much appreciated thanks!

Comment: Hello Shanna! OMG! You've sent such an awesome package full of paper goodies to me that I just wanna hug you! :D Let me start from the beginning... First of all, your parcel is huge! What's more, I love how you've written my name on it (so that I could see from afar it's for me! :D) and then... oh dear God, how have you stuffed so much stuff in there? Love every single thing, yet my favourites are without a doubt your handmade envie, tiny super cute sticky notes and that terribly beautiful paper for crafts. Thank you, thank you, thank you! ♥
Response: I'm so happy you liked it! I really enjoyed making it for you. I think stuffed envelopes are my new favorite type of swap.
Comment: Hi Shanna, Thanks for the nifty card. Take care ;)
Comment: WOW thank you so much for all the wonderful goodies! Tons of cute cute papers! and of course I LOVED all the shamrock stickers! Thank you for everything!

Response: I'm so happy you liked them! Happy to send them to you and Happy Valentine's Day!
Comment: Hi Shanna! Finally--it's here:)! No worries. But I must ask how you're looking on the Ransom note, your new camera cord, looking through G's for clothes for C, Writing Tasha, Jazz, Grandma & Robin, buying more stamps, home shopping, and buying oil pastels and concealer? Hope that you got it all done.
Response: I'm glad it found you! As for all the things I need to get done, I did pretty good. Still have to get the camera cord...that has been on my list for weeks.
Comment: Hi Shanna, Thanks for the card, I hope your weekly goals went well! Happy swapping, Henny
Response: Your welcome! Thanks for the comment and the rating! Have a great week.
