About Me

I am a 38 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 bouncy balls. She's also a girl scout. I am the leader of a Brownie/Junior troop of 12 amazing girls! We are 4 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.

I love everything about the 80s. I was born in 1980, so I was a little young to really, truly enjoy it. If I could just be "stuck" in a decade but continue aging and living, it would totally be the 80s.

I finished Game of Thrones. (Obsessed!) I am late to the Harry Potter scene, but am now obsessed with it too. #sortedintoRavenclaw

Sticker Wishlist

-Vintage stickers

-Full sheets / mods

-Prism and holographic stickers

-Laser stickers

-Puffy 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 am not easily offended. I like weird.

I am a full-throttle Scorpio

I am a Girl Scout leader.

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: I have the most beautiful pile of happy mail (still) waiting for me to open and enjoy. I literally keep it next to my craft desk and it’s actually been helping me keep on my rainbow style Paige Evans banner that I am making for another swap. I’m sure everything is delightful in the box - how can it not be when just the box was so decorated with care? You’re the best. I’ll post again once it’s open. 🌈😉 Okay, I just opened the box and then scared my dog Birdie because I yelled out ‘It’s AMAZING!’ and started doing the happy dance. I haven’t even opened up anything yet. LOL Do expect a delicious response from me soon in your mailbox. I’m literally typing this with a cheesy smile on my face.

Thank you so much for the gorgeous stickers you sent me to angel the iffy swap! I really appreciate it (although it was unnecessary) and I love them!

LaurenPappas on Sep 21, 2017:

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.
