About Me

UPDATE: My local post office had their mailboxes broken into (just learned this and this happened several weeks ago) so if you haven’t received something, it may have been victim to theft. I currently don’t have the money to re-send anything and I apologize for the inconvenience. I hope everything will make it, and if not, and you’re willing to wait, I will do my best to get something to you in the next month.

I don’t have a job and my fiancé’s salary only stretches so far, so I can’t send new things right away.


Pronouns: she/her

I fell in love with a librarian in VA and left my fave bbq and breakfast taco spots in Texas to be with him. We met in a tattoo FB group.

We have four cats (Taco, Crums, Peach, and Cosimo) and a pibble named Penny.

If I could be a villain, I’d be Poison Ivy. I’m a Pisces and love astrology and spirituality.

My fave things to do include thrifting and up-cycling, and listening to records.

I love to watch WWE with my man —my fave team is The New Day, and I love Charlotte Flair, Asuka, Becky Lynch, and several others. I like watching old Undertaker matches.

I love Halloween and Christmas and looooove to decorate for them.

I don’t mind receiving things a bit late. I’m really reasonable but I don’t fly with rudeness.

Comment: As of October 27, 2020 I have not received this swap. I contacted you on October 12 about it, and received no reply from you. If you send I will change my rating.

Comment: The swap was for June, I never received anything. Please don't join swaps if you can't afford it. It is unfair to your swap partner

AnnaL rated for LSRUS Cat Swap! 😺 on Sep 4, 2020
Comment: Hi Michelle, thanks so much for all the adorable cat items which I did not have anything you sent, yippee. The envelope with cats all over it too cute, I love it. Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend, AnnaL.
Response: I had no idea you’d not yet received this swap. Mail has been strange, but so far everything else has made it to it’s destination, please let me know in the future if something hasn’t arrived. In the meantime, I hope it will show up as I simply don’t have the money to re-send anything right now.
Comment: Your gorgeous package arrived. One day away from the other one arriving. Oh sigh. But both awesome. Thank you so much.

Comment: Well my Dear! A huge heart and thank you for such a wonderful package!!!!! It felt like my birthday!!!! I wish you the same kindness in return and many happy mail days!

Comment: I loved learning about the people you chose! Thanks for the swap!
Response: Hello, I was unaware you’d not yet received your item. It would’ve been nice to know before being rated down. Hopefully it will show in your mail soon. The post office has been having issues and mail had recently been stolen.
crochetjunkie rated for Blind Envie Surprise US on Aug 25, 2020
Comment: I would love to rate a 5 and heart for the over stuffed envelope you sent for this swap, but it was sent 11 days past deadline with no communication as to why you sent late.
Response: I completely understand. I just couldn’t find the capacity to message anyone while dealing with my current issues, and unfortunately I was too broke to send anything right away. It’s a case of I didn’t say anything and then I found myself paralyzed to say anything and had resigned myself to whatever would happen. Very silly in the end but that’s what my anxiety and ADD does to me sometimes. Regardless, I’m glad the envelope got there and you liked the items!

Comment: Thank you for the card!
Comment: Thank you ! Unfortunately, the envelope had a lot of water damage from travel and the letter was ineligible, at no fault of yours. Luckily a lot of the extras you added were not paper based. I love the skull embellishments! Thank you!
Comment: Sounds lovely!
Comment: I love this swap thank you!!
Response: Woo! Thanks for the heart rating!

Comment: Thanks for the skull ATC! And thanks for all the collage bits; love them.
Response: Woohoo! So glad it made it and you liked it all! Thank you for the 💜!
bblue rated for Black Lives Matter Swap on Aug 15, 2020
Comment: Your envelope art and "meme" made with the Richard Scarry cutouts are perfect! Thanks for the ATC as well, and the heartfelt letter. The part about mail with Black themed stamps going missing was :0. Racism can be so petty.
Response: Thank you for the response and heart rating. Racism sucks. I hope we will all live to see much better days!

Hi! Please send this swap, which is almost two weeks overdue: Buddha’s Eightfold Path: Study and Contemplation.

It was due out Aug 24; you had one month to prepare and send this one stamp, flat letter swap after partners were assigned.

You were last on SB Aug 25. I contacted you with no response. I contacted your partner who responded to indicate you contacted her to share you were having some present challenges and would send soon.

Please consider this a reminder to send this swap out to your partner.

Hi! Thank you very much for the lovely comment on my profile :) I can't take credit for the ABC idea - I also got the idea from someone else's profile and wasn't able to find out who came up with the idea first. I'm sure they wouldn't mind if you added an ABC list to your profile as lots and lots of members have done it :) xx
