About Me

hello, my name is Chelsea- i've always loved getting mail, so i am very excited to start swapping. isn't your day just a bit brighter when you receive something fun in the post that isn't a bill or junk?!

my time is spent mostly thrifting, sewing, watching tv, and browsing etsy. i also love photography! from other profiles i've viewed, i see that it's good to list things you like/don't like so here's my list below!



  • broken bit of sparkly jewellry-- i use them for craft projects
  • fabric; cottons. especially vintage!
  • vintage KITSCHY anything
  • black/white photos
  • old family photos
  • vintage ephemera
  • stickers; especially kawaii/cute stuff
  • hello kitty stuff
  • the colors red & pink
  • anything to do when bones/skeletons; i love vintage anatomy prints, cute skully stuff at halloween time, etc.
  • teeth stuff! i know that seems a bit weird, but there are some really cute kawaii-theme teeth stuff (stickers, fabric, etc) so i know i'm not the only one.
  • anything with hearts
  • long necklaces
  • brooches/pins
  • i collect kitschy/weird/cute/vintage salt & pepper shakers
  • paint-by-numbers paintings
  • junk food related items
  • anything super touristy (postcards, magnets, ash trays, etc)
  • anything LAS VEGAS related, the older the better!
  • animal stuff: whales, bunnies, deers
  • disney related stuff (no tinkerbell please!)



  • makeup or lotion or any sort of perfume/oils/incense. i have pretty crazy allergies & a super sensitive nose
  • earrings; my ears are NOT pierced
  • pencils, because i don't use them

Favorite Music

i don't think i've met a genre i didn't like when it comes to music; a little bit of everything for me!

i've been recently listening to Adele, The Black Keys, Johnny Cash, Bon Iver, Lykke Li, Findlay Brown, etc. i love pop/dance music for working out so there's a lot of Lady Gaga and Kylie Minogue on my ipod.

the last concerts i went to were Incubus (APR 2012), Alkaline Trio (MAR 2012) and Merle Haggard (OCT 2011).

Favorite Books

when i was a little kid, i absolutely LOVED to read. as a teen, i focused just on school required reading and not much else. now i've graduated college and i'm getting back into books for fun.

i love fiction and non. 'The Great Gatsby', 'Everything is Illuminated', and 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time' all jump to mind.

i also enjoy political non-fiction and biographies.

style and craft books are also a lot of fun-- i like to browse the large coffee table books in shops for the photography.

vintage children's books have become an accidental collection because i love the illustrations.

Favorite Television

i almost don't see anything when it originally airs anymore, i just wait for it to come out on DVD!

that being said, i love watching shows like Arrested Development (rip), Roseanne (rip), Criminal Minds, The Walking Dead, Louie, and The Office (both US and UK versions).

American Pickers might be my fave show on tv right now. i want to road trip and thrift America's heartland, too!

i also like Mad Men, Flight of the Conchords (rip), and seriously geek out at anything LOST-related.

i also started renting Dexter. i'm only into season four, so no spoilers! :)

Favorite Crafts

oh wow-- i love all sorts of crafts. my fave is probably sewing. i make stuff for myself, for friends, and to sell. i don't think it's possible for me to be in a bad mood if i'm in a fabric store.

my mom and i have been talking about taking up a jewellry class, but we haven't yet. i hope to soon.

i don't know if it is considered 'crafty' per se, but i love photography and developing my own film. there is something very exciting about shooting a roll of film, processing it, and then discovering what shows up when you print. i've made some weird chemical/time/lighting mistakes that have turned into cool pictures!

Comment: That's a lot of fabric ~ thank you so much! I was glad to see some Winnie the Pooh fabric. I liked your envelope card and the star stickers too.
kittylover rated for Easy Fabric Swap on Nov 16, 2011
Comment: I'm just amazed at not only your generosity but what perfectly beautiful fabric you picked out for me. Every single piece is perfect and just what I would have chosen myself. I'm still trying to figure out how I can give lots of hearts for this package I received today but it looks like all I can do is send cyber hugs. The sock monkeys and the bananas must be used together in some way. Thank you for giving me such a happy mail day today.

Doreen247 rated for Surprise Pouch on Apr 27, 2011
Comment: Thank you for the pouch, stickers and mini tissue packet you sent to me. I'm thinking I'll use at least one of the tissues in an upcoming swap journal page. They're pretty. I love the little puppy stickers and the ice cream cone fabric you made the pouch from. I also love your penmanship / handwriting on the note you wrote. At one time I drew up a font for a company I worked for. I would love to have a font of your writing to use on my computer. I love the way the letters float above the base line and settle at various places above the baselines. I also love that your lower case letter "Y" is actually a capital letter "Y" and that you add the serifs to your capital letter "I". I know . . . it's the little things in life that are the most encouraging. Have a great day!
Response: wow, thanks for the handwriting compliments-- it makes me not want to join more swaps so i can keep this rating near the top! :D
Comment: Beautiful heart, thank you :)

jennly rated for ATC Swap for beginners on Mar 26, 2011
Comment: I love the ATCs you sent me. I think I may frame them. I checked out your profile and I have to ask you where you watch the Misfits? I am a huge fan of UK Skins and have heard about the Misfits, but I can't find it anywhere to watch. I also checked out your blog, and your photography is awesome. You are lucky to have such great thrift stores, ours here don't have a lot of great things.

Comment: Thanks so much - I absolutely love the Thomas Paine quote! Actually, I love both of them ... and the card! :-)
