About Me

I am a 37 year old hippie chic. I love peace signs, vintage trolls, Christmas, hot air balloons, stickers, glitter, snail mail, taking pictures, sharpies, my iPad, unicorns, stickers, 80s music, rainbows, hot air balloons, Lisa Frank, Prince, gumball machines, carnival anything, and vintage / retro stuff. Did I mention stickers? More on that later...

I'm very extra and believe there is never enough glitter and confetti. I carry a zipper pouch of confetti in my purse at all times. #alwaysbeprepared

I have a 9 year old mini-me (B) who loves to get mail. She loves stickers, crafty stuff, magnets, animals - especially cats (we have 1 inside and 9 outside), 90s fashion, and she collects key chains and Shopkins. She's also a girl scout. I am the leader of a Brownie troop of 12 amazing girls! We are 3 years in and love it!

I mainly host and join sticker swaps. I LOVE stickers and I always share with B!

I have several smashbooks. I keep little things I like, quotes, bits of artwork B draws for me, small magazine clippings, photos, prayers, etc.

Sticker Wishlish

-Vintage stickers

-Full sheets / mods

-Prism and holographic stickers

-Laser stickers

-Puffy stickers

-Foil stickers

-Vending machine stickers (old/vintage)

-Hot air balloon stickers, gumball machine stickers, and rainbow stickers make my heart beat faster! Especially vintage.

-OK, really any stickers (no reward*, word, flakes, or holidays other than Christmas and Halloween, please)

*I like smiley face and star stickers though!

I don't care for kid/cartoon character stickers either (like dinosaurs, Dora the Explorer, etc.) ~ with the exception of Carebears, Trolls, etc. (anything that's a throwback to the 80s/90s!)

I am always open to private (vintage or new) sticker swaps.

*****Looking for the Paperhouse Elvis Stickers where he's wearing his gold lame suit. I have a life-sized cardboard cut out of this very image and would love the stickers!*****

Random Facts About Me

My nickname is CK (really creative, I know)

I just cannot pick a favorite color. Is rainbow a color? What about glitter? Holographic?

Most of my closet is fashion jewelry, not clothes.

I do not like my bare feet touching the floor.

I have 3 tattoos, including a peace sign and an amazing unicorn! (It's on my instagram page @thegrantgirl

I collect [hoard] vintage stickers.

I am a bit of a germ-a-phobe, and a little OCD.

I hate putt-putt (mini golf).

I love the HBO show, GIRLS.

I am not easily offended. I like weird.

I am a full-throttle Scorpio

I am a Girl Scout leader.

I love Johnny Depp and all of his sexy weirdness.

Favorite Crafts

Avoid and Dislikes...

I am not generally that picky, but I do like to see dislikes on some profiles. I do not have many, but here's my list of non-preferred stuff:

-Disney, cartoon, superhero stuff, princess stuff

-Overly childish unicorns

-Beauty samples

-Sticker Flakes, foam stickers, baby/maternity/wedding stickers, alphabet stickers, reward stickers (I like solid colored smileys & stars though!)

-Cut out stickers or cut sticker sheets. (unless swap says they are ok)

-Perfume, candles, other scented stuff

-Paper ephemera, scraps, and trinkets in themes not listed above

I would not "rate down" for any of this stuff. I just don't prefer it.

Comment: If I could kiss you right now I would. We had our investiture last night and out of the 14 new Daisy’s only a handful had anything on their vests. They are all on scholarship. So most don’t have numbers yet even. I bought them patches so they were excited. It was one of the proudest moments of my life to officially welcome my only child to the Girl Scout family. So the package was already heavenly. One of the best I have ever gotten in a swap!!! But to then see the patches made me cry. Happy tears! We sang happy birthday to Juliette Low as part of our ceremony so I can get them a few more patches. They are crazy 5 year olds. My daughter is so serious about it. We already have done 6+ events on our own so she thinks she is at the brownie rank at the least. Thank you! Thank you! I have Florida friendship/pen pal patch on order. They sold out at Girl Scout fest. When they come in I will see if I can get 12 for your troop. (Unless you already have Florida...) Once I tame these girls we will definitely have set up a swap. That would be amazing!!! πŸŒΌπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Thank you so much for the AWESOME envelope of goodies you sent to "angel" the bad swap. I wont lie those Lisa Frank stickers might not get shared with the kiddos, those took me RIGHT back to childhood haha. I loved all the stickers. Thanks so much.
