About Me

Hello (◍•ᴗ•◍) to all who may read this!!

As you may guess from my SB name... I ❤ love pandas 🐼 and I used to collect anything stationary/craft related to pandas. My IG account is even panda related @pandaartsylifestyle It all started when I chose "Panda" as my camp counselor name from Girl Scouts a few years ago and it has stuck.

I am 49. I'm married and have a daughter who is a young adult is now attending college. I work full time in the public schools as a therapist for children with special needs. My husband is an over the road truck driver.

SWAPPING📌 Where will I swap -- Is Antarctica too far?? Yes, I am willing to swap internationally.

INCOMING SWAPS-- I try to rate within 24 hours of receiving swaps. If I haven't rated and you have sent... please send me a message and I will double check my log. I am a patient swapper and realize things get returned, lost and otherwise stuck in the various postal service systems of the world. I will contact others before rating anything other than a 5, but do believe in the need for ratings.💙 Anything sent with effort and friendship in mind is appreciated. (◍•ᴗ•◍) 💙 Anything that is sent with an awareness of my profile and/or with generosity will get a quick heart.

OUTGOING SWAPS-- PLEASE send me a message if you don't receive a swap from me. I'm happy to resend if something goes amiss. I do mark sent on the day the item goes into my mailbox. May be picked up by the post office the next day or two days later if there's a holiday. I do try to send out my swaps to the recipients as the partners are posted if they are non-profile based and days before the mail out deadline is they are profile based. If you receive something that isn't your taste and it's a non-profile based swap... kindly just pass on to the next person.

CRAFTING HISTORY 📌 I've put together personal scrapbooks for the last 20 years... and snail mail pen pals for nearly 30 years. I have a love of stationary and stickers that spans my life since grade school. In recent years I've added a variety of journaling (art, junk, health and faith) into my frequent craft hobbies.

HOT TOPICS 📌 I am an open minded, but not easily swayed individual. I am a straight, Christian, democrat that is also Asian-American, that lives in the USA/Mexico border, supports our military and is fully immunized. I am a LGBTQIA2S+ Ally.

I am strong in my beliefs but enjoy other points of view and intelligent debate. If your interests, age group, culture, race, religion and/or lifestyle are different then mine that's a BONUS to me. I have many close friends that live different than I do and I love learning about new people, their cultures, their religions and differing points of view. Nice is nice and I truly believe that variety makes the world an interesting place. 👍🏼♥️ Love is love. 🌈 Be kind to ALL.

Likes: 💗See ABC likes list below

Dislikes: 👎🏼Themes as follows: Mushrooms (but most nature/woodland is great); cats; snakes; tarot, witches, magic, clown or political items. 👎🏼I'm not a fan of yellow... especially neon/bright yellows. Touches of yellow are fine. 👎🏼Items that smell of smoke. 👎🏼Please don't send loose glitter or sequins. It gets all over my area/crafts and my fluffy pets.

Favorite Music

I like upbeat and thought provoking music from just about any genre/language. Favorites are country, rock, pop, music from musicals (Guys and Dolls; Mama Mia, Moana) and Christian music.

I love ❤❤❤ to swap playlists as listening to new music can be great fun. I'm currently really into Fall Out Boy, Andy Grammer and fellow Filipino American Olivia Rodrigo!

Favorite Books

I listen to audio books when I doing chores or exercising. Mystery and dramas are my favorite. Recommendations are appreciated.

I collect and use cookbooks: Skinnytaste Air Fryer, Hungry Girl Simply 6; Pioneer Woman, 5 Ingredient Semi-Homemade and The Hell's Kitchen Cookbook are my favorites.

Favorite Television

Reality shows (Survivor; Amazing Race; Top Chef; Love Island USA/UK/Australia; 90 Day Fiance, Traitors, Love is Blind), dramas related to medicine (Grey's Anatomy, Station 19, New Amsterdam, The Good Doctor) and other types of series (Downton Abbey; Call the Midwife; Virgin River, Bridgerton).

Does YouTube count as television? I love listening/watching others craft while I'm crafting. I enjoy following along with the tutorials... But also to just have the videos on in the background. My crafting favorites include: The Paper Outpost, Joie de Fi, Camelia Crafts Designs, 49dragonflies and Ceri the Crafter.

Favorite Places I've Been

I grew up in Illinois. Went to college in Iowa. Lived in New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Arizona after graduation prior to moving to Texas.

When I have breaks from my job in the schools I love 💟 to travel. We own a small motorhome and love to get out on the open road whenever we have a chance. While we have a loose agenda, I love it that we rarely make reservations and usually just go where we want to on the spur of the moment. I dream of doing the same when we retire. (fingers crossed I'll retire in 2036). Our class B RV has solar and we "boondock" most days so we rarely need campground reservations and it's small enough that I do share in the driving.

I've been all over the United States including Alaska. Some of my favorite US destinations include: Seattle (we eloped there!) Las Vegas, San Francisco, Yellowstone National Park, Big Sur California, Chicago and New Orleans.

Internationally I've visited: Barcelona, Spain; London, England; Mexico, Canada, Jamaica and the Philippines. I dream of visiting Japan, Australia, the Galapagos Islands and Italy.

Other interests

💟 I am very interested in nutrition: I count calories and am learning to count macros. I do eat meat, but eat vegetarian many days a week and try to eat primarily plant based as well.

💟 Chocolate is my favorite dessert, but unfortunately if its mailed to me between April to October the chances it will arrive melted is significant. Second favorite sweet is gummy candy - especially Swedish fish.

💟 I enjoy VR Cardio games (Supernatural, Beat Saber) on our Oculus headsets.
