About Me

11/28- I am not feeling Christmas this year. It's near impossible to find a swap that isn't Christmas/winter related right now. So I'm probably going to sit out for a little while.

Hi I'm Heather. I am obsessed with paper crafting and collecting old paper. In my free time I make journals, planners, altered books and bits to go in them. I especially loved sending and receiving handmade items that can go into journals. I also have a new found love for ATC's and postcards.

Things I'm Looking For

--Small ephemera for ATC's

--Dyed tracing papers and other dyed papers

--Pretty book covers

--Large decorative brads

--Glass or paper beads

--Travelers notebook inserts

Favorite Books

I haven't been reading a lot lately. My go to for long car rides is Libravox, I love listening to Horatio Alger Jr. books. My favorite being Ragged Dick.

My all time favorite book is She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb. and of course Harry Potter, Hunger Games series and the Divergent books. I also love VC Andrews. My favorite being the Dawn (Cutler) series.

Movies and TV

I don't watch TV. I have the TV on most of the time, buts it's usually for background noise and lighting. I have a couple shows on Hulu I keep up with like The Handmaids Tale and Good Girls. I watch a ton of Youtube and movies on Netflix. I will watch anything but my favorite genre is comedy. I love movies like The Week Of and The Wrong Missy.

Swapping and Rating

--I will always send my swaps on time.

--I always rate as soon as i open a swap.

--If you do not receive something from me please contact me before rating. I will do whats needed to fix it. If you ever get something from me and postage is due please contact me so I can make it right.

--Please rate me. I like to know you got what i sent. I put a lot of time effort and heart into my handmade swaps. Its heart breaking to not get rated for them. I will never understand how someone can reply to a message to tell me that yes they got it, and still not rate me. Even if you don't like it, it's just rude not to rate.

Comment: Hi Heather, Thank You for being my partner for the swap listed above. I have been meeting a lot of new swappers over the last 8-9 months. My new partners are not necessarily new to Swap-bot, but more likely new to me OR partner(s) that I haven't seen in quite some time. Thank you so much for the FANTASTIC collection of Ephemera that I will be able to use in lots of different art projects with the items you sent me for this swap. All of what you sent me is all unique due to age, limited use now due to improvements and/or because of technology. I look forward to using all these GREAT materials. I hope we get to swap again in the near future. Until we meet again, Happy Swapping! Barbara B., sleepingrover2010
