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.

PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY EXCESS PASS ALONG ITEMS. I NEED TO GET CAUGHT UP ON WHAT I HAVE

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. 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.

Favorite Television

Some of my favorite TV shows are Lucifer, Penny Dreadful, Archer, Haven, Schitt's Creek. Umbrella Academy. What/If. Locke and Key. Sex Ed.

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.

I would love for you to share your playlist. I enjoy learning about new artists that are not blasted on repeat on the radio.

Podcasts I am currently listening to: Lore, Unobscured.

Favorite Movies

Some of my favorite movies are Son-In-Law, Empire Records, The Fifth Element, 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:

8/1/2022 City of Bones. (The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare)

Series' I'm currently working on:

Black Dagger Brotherhood- J.R. Ward

Rogue Ethereal - Annie Anderson

Prospero's War - Jaye Wells

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, reward or sports stickers.

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. 5/2022 He earned is Black Belt! 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.

Die Cuts. Images or phrases from magazines, random ephemera. Items in sets of 3 for ATC Jams.

I'm currently working on filling some journals. I would love and appreciate any stickers, small deco tape scraps, or used postage stamps in these themes: Coffee, tea, books/reading, frogs, purple, space/stars/moon

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.

Comment: I love these cute decos. I got this on Friday but got busy making a page for Apelser's Snail Mail deco that I forgot I hadn't rated yet. Your page in the snail mail deco is charmingly put together. Thanks for telling me about calico collage site. Your Faux Postage deco is so lovely. That light mica shimmer is beautifully paired with the vintage look. Thank you HH.

Comment: Whoa, so generous Holly. Thanks for all the lovely stuff. I'm so glad you like the size of these. I'm the same, I like the small space of these minis. Larger space can be a stumbling block for me sometimes. You made 2 very pretty decos. I like how you also used index cards for the inside pages. And the bookplate is a nice touch. :)
