About Me

I am a 36 year old hippie chic. ✿ I love ☮ peace signs ☮, vintage trolls, Christmas, peacocks, stickers, glitter, snail mail, taking pictures, sharpies, my iPad, unicorns, stickers, rainbows, Lisa Frank, Prince, nail polish and vintage / retro stuff. Did I mention stickers?

I have a 7 year old mini-me (B) who loves to get mail. She loves stickers, crafty stuff, magnets, animals, (pretty much stuff I like) and she collects key chains and Shopkins.

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

{PLANNER DEETS: I HAD an Erin Condren Vertical Life Planner. I gave it 6 months. Sadly, I have found that I am definitely an electronic calendar gal. And yes, that truly makes me sorta sad. Oh well, live and learn.}

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

Sticker Wishlish

♥Vintage stickers

♥Full sheets / mods

♥Prism and holographic stickers

♥Laser stickers

♥Puffy stickers

♥Foil stickers

♥Glitter stickers

♥Cool decal stickers (for my kayak!)

♥Vending machine stickers (old/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 sticker swaps.

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 sell and 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 am a full-throttle Scorpio ♏

I am a Girl Scout Daisy leader.

I love Johnny Depp and all of his sexy weirdness.

Anything involving Martha Stewart glitter

I also make fun planner charms, etc.

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

✘ Beauty samples

✘ Sticker Flakes, foam stickers, alphabet stickers, reward stickers (I like smileys/stars though!)

✘ 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.

Favorite Music

Both ends of the spectrum and everything in between!

A few favs: Prince, Daft Punk, Aerosmith, Warren G, Missy Elliott, Clay Walker, Sam Smith, Lady Gaga, T-Pain, Nirvana, Michael Jackson, Blondie, Taking Heads, Alan Jackson, Sia, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Color Me Badd, Ram Jam, Kenney Chesney, TLC, OutKast, Poison, Nelly, Ludacris, The Black Eyed Peas...oh and Lil Wayne, Vanilla Ice, and Human League, and Travis Porter, and Muse, and Foster the People, and j Cole, and Kid Rock, and Mötley Crüe, and Blake Shelton, and Alice Cooper, and and and...

See what I mean?!

I love magazines too. I subscribe to Martha Stewart Living, House Beautiful, Country Living, National Geographic, Our State, Woman's Day, Natural Health, Bust, etc.

I tried the whole reading-magazines-on-my-ipad-and-nook-color and it is just not the same, because I like to tear out/clip things I like and keep them in a notebook!

I don't watch a whole lot of TV, but I do really like: The Goldbergs, Full House/Fuller House, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, OITNB, Girls, The Ranch, and other random stuff on Netflix/Amazon Prime.
