About Me

Ratings: I absolutely love swapping and did so vigorously for many months. Unfortunately, completely out of the blue my mental and physical health took a decline in March. I was so unprepared- I had half finished swaps and recently purchased supplies for st patricks day themed mail! Unfortunately, treatment and my health lead to me dropping out of school and not being able to continue any of my normal activities- including swap-bot. I am so very sorry if you were one of the people who didnt hear from me. I'm feeling better and have since sent out all of the swaps I had missed. They were very late and I feel terribly for it. I know this will not fix the damage but its the least I can do. I am so sorry to anyone effected and for having disappeared as I did.

Hi, my name is Shelby. Im 20 years old. I LOVE art and anything creative. I've dabbled with many mediums through the years including clay, charcoal, pencils, markers, sewing, pastels, beading, and I 'm sure theres more I just cant think of them right now.

Im a huge coffee fan and will end up drinking 3 or 4 large cups a day at least. I'm also very excited to start drinking tea because I have always loved the concept but only started liking the taste recently post bariatric surgery. I'm trying to build a collection so I'd love to receive any type! I guess I tend to like sweeter things :). I love receiving clipper teas! I also Love receiving teas from other countries!

I love animals of all types! I've grown up around dogs so I have a soft spot for puppies (especially German Shepherds). I have helped take care and rescue kittens, baby bunnies, and baby birds. I also became obsessed with parrots for a few years. Fun fact- Im terrified of fish yet I have my scuba license to help conquer that fear. It didn't help.

I have two dogs.

Ruby- a golden retriever and

Nacho- a boston terrier hound mix.

Ruby is the sweetest and always wants to be doing the right thing- she wont even go through an open door unless we say its ok. Nacho on the other hand opens doors himself and kicks people out of their own beds.

Ironically I'm also dyslexic and apologize for any spelling mistakes I'm usually pretty good with catching them but just in case I apologize ahead of time.

If you have any questions or just want to talk feel free to reach out! I can't wait to get started!

Favorite Crafts

As I said before I absolutely love crafting. I've been collecting crafting supplies for 10+ years and am ecstatic to have an outlet that can use so much of my supplies! I finally have some amazing crafts to use my 100+ rolls of washi tape on!

Recently I've especially been obsessed with Junk Journaling and making embellishments. I have been obsessed with finding pieces of printed vellum, embossed paper, or really any interesting papers!

Some crafting supplies I love to receive is:

  • Vintage paper

  • Washi

  • Paper

  • Stickers

  • Cute paper clips

  • coffee or tea stained paper

  • FLOW Magazine stuff!

  • Ephemera!!

  • Die cuts! (I don't have a machine yet but hope to get one eventually)

  • Doilies

  • Scrap Paper!

  • Lace

  • Postcards

  • Vellum.

Im not very picky so I'm happy with anything but a few things I do tend to dislike are; Orange, Reward stickers, and political items.

Favorite Television

Im a tv show addict. I have seen hundreds and if I really enjoy the show Ill re watch it over and over again while crafting. Some of the shows Ive loved in the past are:

  • Supernatural

  • Kdramas (especially scarlet heart: moon lovers)

  • Doctor Who

  • Izombie

  • Anime

    • Seven deadly sins

    • Yona of the Dawn

    • Ouran Host Club

    • Fairy Tail

  • Gilmore Girls

  • Once Upon a Time

  • Teen Wolf

  • Switched at Birth

    and hundreds of others. I do like some movies specifically ones that are made based on books such as Divergent, Harry Potter, City of Bones, and Maze Runner. However, because of my ADHD I find movies incredibly difficult to sit through. I can't figure out why movies are different from tv shows for me.

Other Passions

In addition to crafting I also am a big sports lover. I'm competitive and my favorite sports to play are soccer, basketball, and volleyball!

Some themes I love are:

  • Cactus

  • Botanical


  • Vintage

  • Fairies

  • Alice in Wonderland

  • Peter pan

  • Old Winnie the Pooh

  • Coffee

  • Tea! (Love receiving from other countries!)

  • Kawaii San-x, sanrio, Q-lia, Etc (memo sheets, stickers, sticker flakes, etc)

  • Pastel!

  • MOON! Recently I've been obsessed with anything moon or galaxy related!

  • Fall/ Halloween~ I'm sorry in advance I send out alot of fall and halloween themed mails!

  • Maggie Holmes ANYTHING!

For Kawaii swaps I love anything but am especially excited when I see Sentimental Circus and Tarepanda!

A few more of my passions are: Chinese food, Kpop (BTS, Got7) , Classic Rock, Ya book series, Traveling, Bullet Journalling, and Writing. I actually work as a writer for a disabilities foundation right now!


Love Love Love postcards! I collect all sorts and am fine with whatever you would like to send. I love and prefer collecting blank Postcards unstamped in envelopes but also love reading postcard with messages!

Not picky, always love receiving postcards they make my day!

Postcard wishlist: Deer, Elephant, Halloween, Fall, Moon, Galaxy, Coffee, and Forest-y!

The only postcards I may not require are any from New York City as I live very close and Alice in Wonderland as I received over 200 for Christmas!

Comment: Hi Shelby, I want to thank you very much for making good on this swap. You sent an absolutely beautiful PL. I love your work. I hope that you are doing well. Maybe we will swap again soon. Take care.
Response: Hi, I am so sorry for having gone MIA like I did. I became sick in March and was unable to keep swapping. When I recovered I sent out the swap although it was very late. I don't know if you ever received it and have tried to reach out. I am more than willing to send another Pocket letter. I am so very sorry!
Comment: Wow Shelby, what a gorgeous and thoughtful letter that feels so tailored to me, you really put a lot of thought into it! I love the paperletterblog too and Vivian is the reason I got into swapbot as well! I can't wait to look up craftpurge. I'm delighted that you've got a supportive social group too :) let me know if you'd like me to reply in the new year and be casual pen pals 💖
Response: Im so glad you liked the letter! Id love to keep penpaling!
