About Me

***3/18/24 - started Keto. Please don't send anything that will tempt me to fall off the wagon. I'm easily swayed to eat carbs and sweets LOL!

My Wiccan rear-end has been prancing this planet for a glorious 33 years. I am the mom to a very energetic little girl and I live in a small town in Central Pennsylvania. I work full-time in the finance office at one of the top-10 university in the US, and I'm also a full-time published author. Writing and crafts are my passion.

I've always enjoyed ATCs, and I feel like I needed a section to show my likes and dislikes!

My preferences include


  • Anything spooky or disturbing

  • Fantasy

  • Steampunk

  • Movie or show related (check above for favorites)

  • Spooky or disturbing

  • Whimsical or abstract

  • Up close drawings and paintings of animals (big faces 'in the camera')

  • Bugs

  • Zombies zombies zombies

  • Anatomy and organs

  • Wiccan or astrology

  • Did I mention anything spooky or disturbing?


  • Anything collaged or stickers

  • Anything not hand drawn or painted


I prefer hand-written letters over typed, feels more personal. Currently, I have 27 pen pals, but we all write at our own pace. I understand people have lives, but I also don't want to wait 5 months to get a reply. I always hand-make my own envies and include things like washi samples, paper cutouts, crafts, drawings, etc.


I won’t give a heart for ATCs that are just sticker slapped. Not a fan.


As long as the craft was received on time and doesn't look like it was just thrown together, I'll rate well. If you go above and beyond and gear the craft toward something listed in my favorites - I give a heart.


I mark my swap as sent once it's been dropped in the mailbox at the PO or handed to the PO attendant if anything above a regular stamp is needed for postage. PLEASE contact me if you don't receive a swap. I don't flake and want to make it right in the event something gets lost.


Comment: Thank you for the re-send! Love everything, especially your handmade stickers and the little bits of ephemera.
Response: You're so welcome!! I'm glad this one made it!!!! <3

Comment: Thank you SO MUCH for the postcards and the extras - cute note paper and I loved the Eiffel Tower pic! I have to tell you that I have been to see the Kauri forest in NZ and the trees are just amazing! They are huge and practically as tough as iron. They dug up some (dead) trees that had been buried for years, and the wood had not even started to decompose. They are using that wood to make beautiful wooden items! Thanks again!
Response: So glad you liked everything!!!!!! 😍😍🫶 you’re so welcome!!!! The trees there ARE huge!!!

Hello Alyssa, I love crafting also, and napping!! Lol I can never get enough of either!! Lol I love when people do the ABC’s, it really makes it so easy to find common ground!! I live in the mountains of West Virginia… you’d love it here!! How do you keep up with 27 penpals?? I get behind, and then get frustrated because of it and end up giving up!! Lol. It was nice visiting your profile!! Take care!! I look forward to seeing you in another swap soon!!

Quick friendly profile comment- I love to read others Profiles to get a Read on them for Swaps and I see several areas of Interest we share: Books, Bookmarks, Donuts, Fall,Icecream, Owls, Quilts,Reading,Tea and Vikings.( love movies with vikings, and almost any kind of Tea).I agree that hand written Letters are nice, although I find the typed words are easier to read ( I just got new Glasses). You live about 3 hours east of me, I like the mountains but not driving in them ! Hugs!
