I'm dedicated to Swap-Bot and send all my swaps on time. If you haven't received a swap from me, please let me know. I'm always happy to re-send.
In a world where you can be anything....be kind.
April 24, 2023 - I’ve hit 500 swaps! I’m so excited to be at this milestone. I love Swap-Bot. I've met some awesome people and really enjoy snail mail.
I practice yoga, reiki, meditation and energy healing.
I love to garden. When I was a kid, I would help my little Italian Grandma with her garden every summer. We would plant tomatoes, zucchini, all kinds of peppers, watermelon, green beans and potatoes. I've scaled my garden way back as an adult. I mostly plant a large variety of tomatoes, peppers and herbs.
My favorite herbs are basil, rosemary and lavender. These are also some of my favorite scents. As for other smelly stuff, I like berry, lemon, cinnamon, patchouli and nag champa. Not a big fan of strong flowers, apple, watermelon or jasmine.
I love honey! I use it for medicine, sweetening my tea and baking.
I work full-time as a paralegal in-house for a government contractor. We build military trucks.
I am an energy healer. Energy Healing is a pleasant and powerful therapy that helps you connect to your inner source of vibrancy and life force, making it available to shift physical, emotional, and mental dysfunction to health and well-being.
I consider myself spiritual. I don’t care for the dogma connected with organized religion. I love to visit sacred spaces and buildings of all types. I practice pagan traditions and holidays. I enjoy exploring the sacred feminine in many different traditions.
I'm an avid tarot/oracle card reader. I collect decks of both. I'm also interested in trading decks if anyone would like to do a private swap.
My favorite "regular" holidays: Christmas, Halloween, Easter and Thanksgiving. I also don't mind receiving holiday items all year.
Favorite Halloween icons: witches, skulls, pumpkins, jack-o-lanterns, ghosts, haunted houses, scary trees and cemeteries; not really into black cats or monsters or anything gory. It's fun to get out the ouija board during Halloween for some interesting conversation.
For Thanksgiving, I like traditional themes - turkeys, pumpkins, fall leaves and woodland animals. I love vintage Thanksgiving images. They are so bizzare!
Favorite Christmas themes: traditional red & green, angels, snowman, snowflakes, holly, silver – anything sparkly. Lots of glitter and sequins. Not into country or rustic themed decorations like burlap and plaid.
For Easter, I love bunnies just not too cartoon-y. I love pastel flowers & ribbon, colored eggs, carrots and Victorian looking Easter baskets.
I have a serious love for all things Starbucks; both the beverages and merchandise. I also love all types of Starbucks inspired stickers, stationary and washi tape.
I am addicted to washi tape. Some of my favorite Washi: Simply Gilded, Paper Geek Co., Inspired Life Studios, Fox and Cactus and Cookie Sticker Co. One of my favorite washi shops on Etsy is GoatGirlMH.
I'm a fan of the Cavallini stationery, journals, stickers, papers, puzzles...all of it is so beautiful.
I LOVE Star Wars! I've been a fan of Star Wars since I was 8 years old and the FIRST movie was released. (Yep! I'm old. Hahaha) It's been a life long obsession. I read all the books and watch everything - the whole Star Wars universe is amazing. Thank goodness for Disney+
I like zodiac inspired art, stickers and washi. I'm a Pisces and I collect things with Pisces symbols and imagery.

I'm a big fan of art museums - especially enjoy Monet, Picasso, Degas, Matisse and Gauguin. I also love Chihuly glass.
I'm a huge IndyCar fan. I've been attending the Indy 500 since I was a kid. I also lived in Indianapolis for 20 years and its easy to become a mega-race fan in that town. I love watching the races all season.
I can't explain it, but I have a fascination with Bigfoot. I collect postcards, playing cards, stickers,etc. of Bigfoot.
I collect all things peanut butter & jelly. The cuter the better.

• Kiddie stickers/Dollar Tree Items • Color your own anything • Chocolate covered fruit • Flower flavored tea • Scraps of paper • Not a big fan of St. Patrick's Day. I lived in South Bend -home to the University of Notre Dame- for 18 years, so it's everything Irish all year long.
I’m not a fan of bath bombs or anything bath related.
I love books! I love reading, collecting and sharing all types of books. I'm a big fan of used-book stores and Paperbackswap.
I like to collect old cookbooks, spiritual books (everything from Catholic saints to yoga) and art books.

Music is a big part of my life and brings me great joy. I feel really blessed to live in a time when all my music fits in the palm of my hand (i.e. iPhone). Streaming services are a true blessing!
Some of my favorite genres:
Pop - some current top 40's, but always will love the 80's best! I love Duran Duran, Prince and Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Bon Jovi, too many to name.
Classic Rock - Everything from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Motley Crue

I have various items to exchange in private swaps if anyone reads this far in my profile (LOL) and would be interested in swapping:
• Unopened washi from Simply Gilded (duplicates from my collection and free rolls)
• Partially used washi rolls from various shops.
• 25-30 postcards that don’t fit into my collection or I haven’t seemed to find the right swap
• 100s of playing cards in a variety of backgrounds (many duplicate backgrounds obviously – I keep buying decks cheap online or find them at the flea market)
• Tarot and Oracle decks that don’t work for me – I would love to swap these out.
I also have a lot of tea bags. I'm in a monthly tea swap, but I don't really drink tea every day. I'd be happy to send some out. I don't keep any beyond their expiration date
Please send a message or email to discuss a private swap. The swaps don’t have to be for like items. I’m open to swapping for anything. For example, I love original art, so maybe we can swap some of my stuff for something you make. I hope that make sense.
Also, I only want to swap with established swappers. Sorry, but I’ve been burned by untrustworthy newbies or those with incomplete profiles and low amount of swaps.
