About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Gaby and I am SOOOOO excited to have discovered swap-bot. I have always been a huge fan of the written word (writing letters to family members, journaling, etc.) and I can't wait to start swapping goodies!

.:~~:. .:~~:. .:~*~:.

I am currently 22, just finished my undergraduate degree in Geosciences and I'm on my way to Graduate school! I start in August, so I have the whole summer to relax and send letters. :) For as long as I can remember I have always been an arts and crafts queen. LOL, my mom has boxes and boxes full of all the birthday and Mother's Day crafts I have made for her.

I'm really looking forward to creating and sharing with you lovely people :)

Thinks I like

I love many, many things in this beautiful world. These things include but are NOT limited to...

  • A HAND WRITTEN LETTER! This is a sure way to get a heart from me! I love love love receiving pen pal style letters!
  • Animal Crossing!
  • Literally every animal ever
  • Rocks and crystals
  • Anything that sparkles
  • Horror Podcasts
  • Cacti
  • Candles
  • Therapsids
  • Lobe fish
  • Anime (I’m a huge anime fan and I speak intermediate Japanese. I don’t have enough space on this profile to list which Anime series I’ve seen... LOL)

.::. (Not so) IMPORTANT things to know about me .::.

  • My favorite celebrity is Norbert the Dog
  • My faith is really important to me (see next section)
  • I LOVE to recycle things into crafts. I'd love to receive scraps of things! (2 sections down)
  • When things get stressful, I think "What would my ancestors, the lobe fish, do?" It actually helps sometimes.

)O( My Faith )O(

My Faith is so important to me.

I am a practicing pagan, though I find validity in all faiths. I believe in one Source that connects to everyone through different channels, through Gods with different faces. For that reason, I would never turn down a prayer or blessing from someone from another faith. We are all tuned into the same radio tower, we're just listening to different stations.

)O( I worship the Triple Goddess )O(

The Great Goddess has shown herself in many ways throughout human history. To me, she reveals herself as the Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone. The pentacle is my symbol of faith and I wear it every day.

Many blessings to you, and may you always follow your Truth!

Things I would LOVE to receive

I make all sorts of things. I make zines, I bind books, I make collages, I sew, I paint (watercolor and acrylic). The only thing I DONT do is metal work (LOL). Seeing as I dabble in so many types of crafts, I would love to receive....

  • Art! Especially watercolor
  • Pretty paper
  • Washi tape
  • Stickers
  • Fabric scraps
  • Envelopes
  • Photography
  • A simple handwritten letter
  • Postcards

Honestly, I can't really think of anything I WOULDN'T want... I'll get back to you.


I really do! I LOVE dollar store washi tape, notecards, stickers, you name it!

IMPORTANT NOTICE: I will gladly accept items of faith, as long as you are trying to spread love as opposed to trying to convert me. You can send me art of Jesus Christ (I'd give it to family members), but do not send me a card explaining why I need to accept him as my Lord and Savior. I have respect for the Catholic faith but don't tell me how many Hail Marys I need to recite to be forgiven. ;)

That's about it for now!

Thank you for reading my profile! I'm so excited to be involved in this community. :)

I also wanna encourage anyone who’s interested in private swapping to reach out! Heck, shoot me a message just to chat! I’m here to make friends as well as swap. :)

Much Love,
Gaby Skye


This is Norbert the Dog, I love him.


Comment: Lol! I'm learning that deadlines are my primary motivator - now that I have very few of them, I am not getting much done. Time for a life review :-)
Comment: Thank you for the note card, postcard and sharing your art with me. I love the envelope you made with the music, plant and bird designs, but when I opened it, all these dried twigs and flower buds fell out of it. What plant was this?
Comment: I did not even know what cryptids were until your postcard arrived - ha ha :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the handmade pocket and envelopes. The whale pocket is really cool and I will definitely use it in a future journal.

Comment: Gee Gaby, your zine is just great! Hay, I love your Earth. Where are we exactly? lol Your zine content is very cool too! I think its gonna take a few days and a little TnT to get it folded though. lol When I was new I used to use 140lb too. What is it with 140lb? lololol I even used the 140 and tore them down into postcards because I didnt know any different. Then, one day I recvd a precut postcard from a friend and said WHA????????????lololol Gah! They make them? lollololol So Im laying here in bed studying your zine up close and its cool. Because Im looking close I can see you spent a lot of time on doing that OMBRE letters "Gaby When I was 13". That took a while to do! Well, Im so delighted! Thank you!!!!!!!
