About Me

~* Heads Up! *~

10/20/21 - .: For some reason when I've been going to rate, my ratings aren't getting saved. I rate when I get my swaps, so if you sent something, and it's been a bit, please check with me. My swap spreadsheet is also out of date - Sorry, planning to fix it up soon! :.


Call me Dezi, I'm an open minded eclectic person who loves to create, share, and learn.

I’ve dabbled in almost every art medium and I love traditional mail!

I was born and raised with California sunshine, Disneyland, books, and a passion for history.


I love to travel and when I can’t I enjoy sending mail to places near and far. I’ve been to much of North America, Europe, and South America as well as 46/50 States in the US. I really hope to hit those last four states and then maybe Asia.


Disclaimer! I’m a huge Disney fan and love sharing crafty ideas with other Disney fans. My favorite pastime is visiting Disney parks with my husband and making memories. I know Disney can be considered 'childish' by some and that's okay, I enjoy the hopeful childish dreamy aspects of the company as much as the hard reality of what it cost to create an empire that created such a deep cultural impact on the world. I have studied, read about, and written essays on everything from the engineering aspects of certain park rides to comparing original literature to it's 'Disneyfied' counterpart so feel free to hit me with more than the average princess sticker!

Additional Disclaimer! Just because I love Disney don't worry, if it's clearly not your cup of tea I do have many other interests and I'm happy to share those with everyone as well.


Disclaimer on Religion

I’m not a religious person but respect whatever gives people what they need to get through the blows life deals. That said I have no problem receiving or sending religious messages if that’s what inspires people’s creativity. I've studied various versions of The Bible extensively both old and new testament for school and respect it and all texts holy or otherwise. I do have very religious family members and happily pass such sentiments to them when they are in need.

Some of the books and series that have a special place in my heart include:

  • The Dark Series by Christine Feehan

  • The Codex Alera by Jim Butcher
  • The Dragonriders of Pern by Anne McCaffery
  • The Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia Wrede
  • Mouse Tales by David Koenig
  • Harry Potter by J.K Rowling


Favorite Movies


I enjoy Disney movies, psychological thrillers, horror, and a sprinkling of romance or comedy.

Random 10 from my movie library

  1. Beauty and the Beast (animated)
  2. Gone with the Wind
  3. Indiana Jones 1-4
  4. Scream 1-4

  6. Lady and the Tramp
  7. Miss Congeniality
  8. Kill Bill vol 1 & 2

Favorite Music

I have somewhat eclectic tastes and my favor usually extends only to single songs not entire albums or groups.

Random 10 from my music library:

  1. Something About Us - Daft Punk
  2. Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
  3. Duchess - The Aristocats
  4. Greensleeves ( on Piano)
  5. Spooky Scary Skeletons (Remix) - Living Tombstone

  7. Son of Flynn - Tron Soundtrack
  8. I Can’t Help (Falling in Love) - Elvis
  9. We Got Annie - Annie Soundtrack
  10. Such Great Heights - The Postal Service


Genres I enjoy: Disney Soundtracks, Country, PMJ, Classic Rock, 20's-50's, Musicals, and more.

Music usually has to speak to me, often I'll enjoy a song because it's lyrics hit something or because I associate that song with a certain memory or moment in time.


Favorite Boardgames

I'm a boardgame lover and collector, the strategies, the art, the fun we have playing with our friends are all things I love about gaming.

Our collection is quite eclectic with a mix of things we each love and gifts from friends and family.

Current Top Played Games:

  1. Betrayal at House on the Hill Legacy
  2. Villainous
  3. Forbidden Skies
  4. Nuns on the Run
  5. Cards Against Humanity

On Ratings...

When it comes to ratings (and life) I believe the key to everything is proper COMMUNICATION!

PLEASE communicate with me if something has/hasn't arrived, if there's an emergency/natural disaster, if you're hoping for something specific from a swap. Tell me, if you don't tell me I won't know and can't help/accommodate/respond.

I rate the same day I receive, if you haven't gotten a rating from me it's because I haven't received anything from you.

I understand the postal service can be crazy, so I usually give a one month benefit of the doubt grace period. That doesn't mean you can send a month late without ever contacting me and expect a 5, it means if you sent out on the right date and your parcel is delayed up to a month that's how long I'm willing to be patient for before rating a 1.

International is always given a bit more benefit of the doubt since I know with customs and such things can be held up for longer periods of time.

Likewise, if you haven't received something from me PLEASE tell me! I keep tracking numbers for everything I can and if something was lost in the mail I want the chance to re-send it to you! 90% of the time I take my swaps right to the post office to ensure they arrive as smoothly as possible with no postage due snags and such.

kittyhahahotbot rated for HED: Hocus Pocus Quote ATC on Nov 3, 2021
Comment: Score, score, score! NOt only a ATC but a mini zine too! OK the quote is kinda creepy, LOL, but its adorable done in green and purple! Sew happy to add it to my ATC collection. And the mini zine too! What a precious card too! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Response: It's very creepy, but it always stuck out to me. It gives an interesting dynamic to the sisters, that Sarah was sporting with Winifred's beau. Really glad you liked it! You're very very welcome!
Comment: Great zines, thank you!! OMG, the cat library cracked me up!! And the Halloween one is perfect - love the quotes and art. You'll have to share your secret to getting your zines so nicely printed and squared up so they don't end up with uneven edges, lol!! Thank you!
Response: Thanks Grace, I'm always nervous taking a whack at something the first time. My 'secret' is trying to make the first one folded as crisp as possible (score board). Then I try to decorate all the way to the edges. This kinda backfired on me for the cat library, because the copy machine adds a little margin all around that cut off my original signature. I had to pen it back in. I overlap the individual pages slightly so there's no white edges, and press the page all the way to the corner when I copy to ensure it's straight. That's it!
Comment: Haha, thanks for the adorable ATC, and the extras are great too! Happy Halloween!
Response: I'm SO happy you liked it! Happy Halloween!

EleanB rated for Totally Inappropriate PC Swap on Jun 12, 2021
Comment: OMG I love this card! And that embarrassing story, totally something that would happen to me!
Response: I'm glad it made you laugh, it only makes me laugh now that I'm not mortified!
Comment: Your backgrounds - and finished ATC - are so fun, as are the washi you used to decorate... I just kept thinking what a fun stash you must have! Thank you!
Response: Haha! My husband is always giving me the side eye for adding to my stash! I can't help it though, I always love Halloween!
Comment: Thank you for the super creative ATC. I love the way you used the coins in a rather unexpected way - absolutely love it!
Response: Late response, but I was worried the coins wouldn't stick lol glad they survived!
KIllerMal rated for CS: Mermaids 🧜‍♀️ on Mar 25, 2021
Comment: thank you for the nice postcard <3
Response: You're very welcome!
Comment: What a great ATC, I love how your background turned out! Thank you for the extra piece, and other goodies. Especially the shaker embellishment!
Response: A late reply, but I am really happy you enjoyed it!
Comment: I love it. The transfer came out really well. I like how you were able to make it more mat.
Response: Yes, my only complaint about the technique is how super shiny it looks after. I'm so glad you liked it!

Thank you so much for all of the fun for the CPG Envelope Advent. The little patches are so cool, you found me a drummer boy quarter, a Starbucks card, the little dragon origami ornament you made. Just so much fun to open each day. Thank you for making my Holidays brighter! Mele Kalikimaka

Thank you for returning the finished "Windmill Song" ATC jam. I like how it turned out, too. The postage stamp you used on the envelope is going straight into my collection, so thanks for that cuteness, as well!
