About Me

If you don't receive something from me, or the dates stamped are not what I have told you, please PM me before rating, I will resend! I'm in a new RV park and now I'm not sure what time they pick up the mail as I don't live near the USPS pickup point.

If you ever don't receive a swap from me in a timely manner and I haven't messaged you, let me know and I will resend immediately!!!!

๐ŸŽ„โ„๏ธ Christmas 2023: Biggest needs are stamps still, and Christmas stickers! If you send me a Christmas card that doesn't have the name of the swap written on the outside, I will attempt to figure out what swap it's for and contact you, I often open them on my birthday and Christmas and rate after opening! โ˜ƒ๏ธโ›ช

๐Ÿฅณ I'm 34, living in my RV to tiny house FINALLY! I've been in it since June of '21.๐Ÿ’ซ

๐Ÿ™ Christian โค๏ธ (not judgemental, so please give me the same courtesy ๐Ÿ’•).

๐Ÿฆฎ๐Ÿ˜ป Animal lover, former LVT, equestrian and animal rehabber ๐Ÿฆ

Currently have 2 cats, Cinna who is my heart and Maverick, my new eyeless kitten whose the cutest thing EVER! My service dog, Ruger, who is my lifeline and constant companion. ๐Ÿฆฎ Any cat toys that make sounds are excellent stocking stuffers to send me since Maverick is blind! Ruger is allergic to everything, so no treats. Cinna loves any crunchy treats. ๐Ÿค—

๐Ÿฆ“ Medical Zebra ๐Ÿฆ“ I have EDS, POTS, MCAS. Feel free to ask me about them. EDS is what everything falls under, including my fibromyalgia, degenerative disc, joint and bone disease, migraines, bulging and herniated discs, tethered spinal cord, etc etc etc.

Unused postage stamps are my #1 needed item. It's so helpful when I get them! I'm on disability and have a budget down to the penny and I swap thanks to everyone that sends stamps with their swaps. โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ Postcard stamps are desperately needed before Christmas!! I would LOVE ANY uncirculated Queen Elizabeth stamps or ones that haven't been marked too much!!! I'm making jewelry from them! Same with circulated coins!

Anything service dog related! Patches from Etsy that are seasonal are ALWAYS fun and super welcome. We LOVE doggie bandanas as we have an Instagram and need to start doing photoshoots! If you'd like to order something for Ruger, give me a price range and I'll let you know what we currently need!

Anything Top Gun, Paddington, The Muppets, Doctor Who, Brambly Hedge, Christmas related!

Autum, Winter, and Christmas themed washi!

Anything Alice in Wonderland themed! Especially John Tenniel illustrated!

Postcards/stickers/ephemera with campers or tiny houses on them!

Alphonse Mucha style art.

Ireland & Scotland related items!! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ

RV related stuff.


Anything demonic/Satanism/Witchcraft/New Age, Cult, Crime or Halloween related in any way is a HUGE no thank you for me. I respect your beliefs, please respect mine.

Anything anti-religious (i.e. something that's making fun of someone's religion or being disrespectful), anything that makes fun of anyone else, especially people with special needs or disabilities.

Circuses that use exotic animals. I hate the forcing of endangered animals to perform for people.

I also really dislike Rick and Morty and South Park.

Not a big fan of Anime unless it's Totoro, Hello Kitty or Pokemon related.


If you are a smoker, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know before you send a swap, if you want to just take a photo of it, I will rate a 5! I'm HIGHLY allergic to cigarette smoke (can send me to the ER or leave me bed bound for days). I am extremely sensitive due to my MCAS which blows any allergies I have totally out of proportion. Medication I had been taking for 15 years sent me to the ER the last week of 2021, so please take this seriously. I can also be sent into bad asthma attacks from heavily perfumed stuff, bath bombs and stuff you pour in baths are fine, but no perfume packs or anything like that please! โ™ฅ๏ธ

Highly alllergic to any sugar other than stevia, and carbs are a huge no no for me. ๐Ÿ˜ž I'm on a very strict diet due to my POTS. You CAN SEND HOT CHOCOLATE PACKS THOUGH! I can have one every once in awhile now!

I'm also not allowed to have caffeine, but can have it in small amounts like tea, black teas are fine as well, I just don't drink them on flare days.


11/21/22-I am SUCH a dork...I had no idea the barn stamps were postcard stamps until I went to the post office today for a few Global stamps, so if you get a swap with $ owed, please let me know so I can Venmo you or send you another card! The font was so small I couldn't even see they said postcard on them. So sorry if it happens! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

11/6/22-Had an internal heart monitor placed on Oct. 31st and am still recovering if it takes me a few days to respond or rate. โค๏ธ I'm also in the process of doing a trial adoption with a kitten whose had a double enucleation, so PLEASE be patient with me through January. I'm helping my parents train their teething 4 month old, 40lb puppy too. I'm completely drained!

Comment: Thank you, Tessa, for the Santa card. The envelope was slit all the way down the side as if someone opened it so the teabag you mentioned in your note wasn't in the envelope. An elf gift tag and a plastic bag with a "Merry" notepad paper and a few stickers was there. Have a Merry Christmas! ... Karla, 11/21/22

It's 1ยฐC over here right now - after a week of -4ยฐC. And starting Friday it will not rise above 0ยฐC for the near future. I never realized that Christmas time =/ snow around the world when my friend went to Australia for a year when I was 14 and she told me about freezing candles to at least put one on. December equals cold and snowy in my brain ^^
