About Me


"Staying positive does not mean everything will turn out okay. Rather, it means you will be okay no matter how things turn out."

ROUGH 2020-2022(?) (slowly swapping/palling again)


I COLLECT (YES I AM a HUGE nerdy girly girl):

  • Anime (Ask for details)

  • Art Supplies

  • Horses

  • Unicorns (fine yes this is a horse too but it has a horn so I am counting on a separate space)

  • My Little Ponies Stuff (80's version)

  • Care Bears (80's version)

  • The Smurfs

  • She-Ra (80's version)

  • Thundercats (80's version)

  • Muppets

  • Snoopy/Peanuts.

  • Strawberry Shortcake.

  • Tigger (from Disney)

  • Garfield

  • Peanuts (Especially SNOOPY!!)

  • Mermaids

  • Dragons

  • Dolls

  • Seashells

  • Sci-Fi & Horror Novels

  • Comic Books/ Manga

  • Kpop/Jpop CDs with extensive packaging

  • Weird Sticky Notes

  • Interesting rubber stamps

  • Journaling/Planner supplies

  • Cute/interesting Washi Tapes

  • Marvel/DC (for ADULTS not kiddie stuff)

  • Wonder Woman

  • Key rings

  • Kawaii Stationary Items (fav characters: Pom Pom Purin, Little Twin Stars, Chococat, Kanahei's Usagi/Piske, Sentimental Circus (and many more so feel free to ask)

  • Stickers/Flakes/Packs

In a nutshell, I love anything fantastic and escapist. So fantasy, fiction, happy endings all that wonderfully relaxing stuff that leaves you with a good feeling in your soul I will probably adore. Life is too stressful day-to-day to NOT enjoy anything I am doing or that is not bringing me some kind of joy.

Note: I believe in recycling and using up crafty things I am sent so you may (scratch that you probably DEFINITELY) will receive swaps from me covered in whatever I had laying around to decorate with at the time UNLESS the swap called for a specially themed envelope art. So expect most of my swaps to arrive in your mailbox looking like a stationary store blew up on them ("blew up" not limited to: Disney stickers, paint splashes, marker testing, transfers, tape/duct tape galore, kid stickers, teachers reward stickers (which I know everyone here seems to hate but I actually LOVE for evie smashing), random gift wrap, weird kiddie stampers, etc !) Please don't take offense or think I didn't "read" your profile--it's just that I live in a "cozy" (translation: small) NYC apartment with my family and I can't have tons of stuff laying about in addition to bins and bins of extras. Decorated envies is a great way for me to keep my supplies at a manageable only semi-hoarding (haha!) state.

Favorite Crafts

  • Collage

  • Journaling

  • Painting

  • Silkscreen

  • Photography

  • Paper folding

  • Paper Modeling

Not sure this is a "craft" per se but I really LOVE the "Kawaii" lifestyle brands and products--i.e. the feel good fun "cute" styling of well. . .everything pop media in Japan which amuse the hearts of one's "inner child". Basically I like a lot of cute and color in my stationary and I have been trying to jump into the land of Kawaii journaling and more art journaling these days!

See example below (credit to the journaler "rainbowholic"):

Favorite Music

Janet Jackson will always be my idol! Otherwise. . .

I love a lot of different types of music. From 80's pop and alternative rock to even dabbling in jrock/jpop/kpop (which kinda means I obsess over Jay Park's tattoos, and 武知 海青's of The Rampage's muscles and dimples on twitter quite a lot (no I will not be ashamed.). For the kpop lovers: I stan Wonho and will go down on a sinking ship for that man! #WeNee4Ever. I also like Block B, Big Bang, DKB, Zelo, Woodz, WayV, Sik-K, Jay Park, Monsta X, Seven O'Clock. I only like older rap 80'-90'-early 00's music (i.e BEFORE Autotune fever made everyone start sounding like swagville chipmunks). Basically upbeat music that makes you get up and dance and makes you feel cheerful is my playlist.

Other than that there are way too many artists these days for me to list in this small (already becoming too long a read) space but it you want the info for a swap you can always just shoot me a Swap-bot PM.

Favorite Books

Recently I have been really into dystopian/alternate universe fiction and post apocalyptic romance (which are so hard to find in a "non-YA" format--which frankly makes me devour the rare few I find even more). "What ifs" and the "what comes after" have really hooked the claws in my reading mind. So recommendations are always welcomed. I still love my fantasy too (or even a touch of horror), cause far away lands full of fairytale, or being a teeny afraid is always fun.

CURRENT MUCH ENJOYED READS (this list will change ALOT because I have ZERO self control in bookstores or bookselling websites). I also Book Mooch:

  • Yellow Wife (Sadeqa Johnson)

  • Tang Dynasty (series) (Jeannie Lin)

  • Kushiel's Dart (Jacqueline Carey)

  • Binti (Nnedi Okorafor)

  • The Married With Zombies Series (Jesse Petersen)

  • Into the Drowning Deep (Mira Grant)

Favorite Movies

Love the movies with big budget special effects or even a great comedy (think summer blockbusters). I like to laugh and be happy, but the right "sad" flick is appreciated too. It all in the cinematography and the direction the film takes. I'm also really into watching horror flicks with my son, especially at Halloween time cause scaring ourselves silly is really fun sometimes. Our favorite horror genre right now is all things: ZOMBIES. Some of the best ones are from Korea (those baddies don't shuffle, they rampage!! Still, just have to leave the lights on cause as my son puts it: "we're the wimps with the bat going into that ONE spooky place on the block."

Favorite Television

Star Trek Discovery (oh SOOOO good!) Love dramas from Asia (not the romance ones, think comedies, slice of life and fantasy ones). So creative and quirky. I also watch a lot of reality TV too (yes I know it's rotting all my brains cells out). Crime drama fascinates me too (so I basically am still watching Law & Order SVU nearly 14 years later haha!) I don't mind fantasy or science fiction series either so long as the graphics are on point--None of those SyFy gumbi dragons and clay aliens. This is such a hard section to fill out now because Netflicks and streaming have suckered me into watching so much online creativity these days I can't even recall it all without my notifications on.

The Teenlet

The "kidlet" has achieved a charisma unlocking score and been "upgraded" to teenlet (in his own words). His hobbies are still pretty much the same. He likes puzzles and taking pictures. Not much for sports.We watch a lot of superhero shows and cartoons--and his oxygen apparently still filters in through the nearest Nintendo video game console. Seriously if I let him he'd probably sleep curled up around his Switch and 3Ds. His favorites are (as of this writing): Link (Legend of Zelda, seriously my apartment is full of the little green guy sigh) , Super Smash Ultimate, Fortenight, and Pokemon. Movies are usually "hokey" horror movies, Animated Comedies, or ROBOTS ANYTHING (his current goal in life is to build a robot army one day to do all his homework, take all his exams and clean his room).


I didn't think I had to put a "dislike" list (cause after all swapping is suppose to be a positive happy activity).

However. . .

After one or two recent swaps I feel like I should mention a rather important fact. I have an elderly mother with breathing issues, whom I care for and at times sit with while opening the mail. Please don't send things that may have allergy or asthma triggers (i.e mold, mildew, cigarette smoke, copious amounts of pet hairs, etc.) AT ALL (if you even suspect it might be triggering just don't send it). Food scents are fine, but you have a smokers home please label on the envelope or write a warning on the package so I know not to open it around my mom. Thank You!

Thank you for joining my swap Groundhog Day Profile decorations, I am popping on a bonus groundhog.

I plan to check with Malverne Mel, Holtsville, Hal and Staten Island Chuck here in NYC and glance at the handsome but better-known Punxatawney Phil and hope they all say spring is on the way

Thank You for the awesome books, what an amazing RAK and such a lovely box they were delivered in! I'm grinning and can't wait to start reading!

I received the box stuffed with books yesterday!! I thank you so, so very much!! My BFFL is also thrilled. Yesterday, I let her know about the RAK and that I'd be dropping them off next week, and she responded, "I love smut!" Your kindness and generosity are so much appreciated by myself and my friend. Thank you for brightening her mood during this trial!
