About Me

6/25/2020: I have moved. If anyone has any deco books or ATC jams to send home that have a Columbus address, please contact me for updated address.

I grew up an Army Brat in Germany. Now I live in Georgia USA with my husband and teenage son.

My favorite color is purple.

I collect frogs and keys.

If you have something with adult content (profanity, nudity, humor etc) and you are not sure about sharing it, feel free to share it.

We have 3 cats, I keep them away from my swapping and crafting stuff as much as possible.

I enjoy swapping sticker books and all types of bags as well as lyrix and most pass along items. I prefer not to receive x-slips or FBs/FS. If it is a sender's choice swap I will gladly pass them on. If you'd like to do a one on one swap let me know. If I'm your swap partner and you have excess you need to move, feel free to include them.
I don't mind homers, USA or international.

Favorite Crafts

I like playing with polymer clay and paracord.

I enjoy making and collecting ATCs/APCs, inchies, altered matchboxes. Themes I'd like, if you are looking for inspiration although I'd prefer to see what you enjoy creating:

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Vintage Chimney Sweeps (please not Mary Poppins)

Purple

Non Cute Halloween (I still love cute Halloween)

Creepy or strange

Adult content

Celestial/Moon

I love seeing other people's creativity, what inspires you to create and the techniques you use to create it.

I am always open to new ideas and suggestions on how to improve. I lack the ability to draw, so most paper projects are cut and paste and stamping.

Favorite Television

Some of my favorite TV shows are Lucifer, Penny Dreadful, Archer, Haven, Schitt's Creek. Umbrella Academy. What/If. Locke and Key. Currently binge watching: The Magicians, The Nevers

Favorite Music

I listen mostly to Rock, I also enjoy 90's Alternative. Three Days Grace, In This Moment, The Pretty Reckless, Halestorm, Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Green Day, Garbage are some of my favorites.

Podcasts I am currently listening to: Lore, Unobscured.

Favorite Movies

Some of my favorite movies are Son-In-Law, Empire Records, The Fifth Element, Constantine, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Age of Adeline, The Old Guard.

Favorite Books

I enjoy reading Supernatural genre. Favorite authors right now: J.R. Ward, Sylvia Day

Currently reading:

Claimed (Black Dagger Brother Hood) by J.R. Ward

Daughter of Souls and Silence (Rogue Ethereal) by Annie Anderson

Otherworld Nights by Kelley Armstrong

Series' I'm currently working on:

Black Dagger Brotherhood- J.R. Ward

The Otherworld- Kelley Armstrong

Things I like

If you're looking for inspiration for a swap, some things that I like are:

Trees

Keys

Frogs

Roses

Jack Skellington

Note cards

Colors- shades of purples and blues, black.

Quotes (motivational, ironic, funny, adult humor. No religious faith based quotes please.)

Fortune cookie fortunes

Time pieces (clocks, hour glasses, pocket watches, etc.)

Old maps

Fun socks- Not toe socks.

Cemeteries

Photographs of castles or their ruins.

Abandoned places and spaces.

Weird stuff

Flat stickers: I don't really have a need for planner or reward stickers. I don't care for sports.

POSTCARDS

I like any postcards. Touristy or not. Handmade welcomed. I am ok with nudity and profanity. I do prefer PCs sent naked, dated and your city/state/country written on it. If you don't know what to write, send me a quote, something about where you live, something funny that happened during your day, something you consider to be one of your quirks. What's the last movie you watched or song you heard that gave you goosebumps?

FAMILY

My son likes Minecraft, Roblox, Deadpool, Corpse Husband, pressed pennies, Hot Wheels, and is in Tae Kwon Do. His favorite color is red, and he likes red and black together. He enjoys good puns and ironic jokes.

My husband likes Camaro themed items. He is currently looking for items with the Guinness toucan logo and the Jameson barrel man.

WISHLIST

This is for wishlist or profile specific swaps.

Any Crown Royal bags you may have lying around. Wax seals. Address labels with my name and address. Note cards, images or phrases from magazines, random ephemera, found bits or items (that would fit on ATCs). Items in sets of 3 for ATC Jams.

Things I'd rather not receive

Anything with hamsters, gerbils, or guinea pigs.

Christian themed items

Friendship Books or Sheets. X-Slips

Those sticky hand toy things or anything made with a similar material. I cannot express how much these things gross me out.
