Hello everyone. (◍•ᴗ•◍) As you may guess from my SB name... I ❤ LOVE 🐼 pandas. It's actually my camp counselor name from Girl Scouts.
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. 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. ❤ Anything sent with effort and friendship in mind is appreciated. (●'◡'●) Anything that is sent with an awareness of my profile and/or with generosity will get a quick heart.
Outgoing-- PLEASE send me a message if you don't receive a swap from me. I'm happy to resend if something goes wrong. I do try to send out my swaps as soon as the recipients are posted if they are non-profile based and days before the mailout 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. I've swapped many pocket letters and am working on papercraft supply and ATC swaps now. I love sending and receiving happy mail.
FAMILY LIFE 📌 I'm 47 years young. I live in Texas with my husband and our two shih-tzu mixed pups who are quite spoiled. I have a daughter who is now a young adult. I was born and raised in Illinois. I work full time in the public schools with children ages 3-21 with special needs. I am a pediatric occupational therapist.
HOT TOPICS 📌 I am an open minded, but not easily swayed individual. I am a straight, Catholic, democrat that is also Asian-American and lives in the USA/Mexico border. I am strong in my beliefs but enjoy other points of view and intelligent debate. Don't contact me looking for a fight... but if your interests, age group, culture, race, religion and/or lifestyle is 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 and differing points of view! Variety makes the world an interesting place. 👍🏼♥️ Love is love. Be kind

❤ Supplies that would be useful... embellishments, acid free stickers (unless they are scratch and sniff... my students love those!); washi tape/stickers; vintage maps/music/pages from books; note cards (blank - not thank you, congratulations etc.), spare stationary with/without envelopes, any color vellum, shaped paperclips, cling stamps, unused USA stamps, instant coffee mixes, healthy recipes with pictures, scrapbook/card making magazines, cardstock with texture, dies for die cut machines, stamp/die sets, mixed media supplies, embossing powders, textured craft yarns, tulle samples, lace and ribbons.
❤️ Currently open for ATC or YouTube tutorial loaded pockets private swaps. Message me and I will gladly set it up.
Items that are appreciated, but will be passed along:
👎🏼Thick (plain or printed) cardboard/chip board that is difficult to add into journals/scrapbooks due to thickness and/or increased weight when sending in letters to pen pals
👎🏼Postcards. Regardless if they are from places or have sayings... I'm not a fan. Will pass on for sure.
👎🏼Glitter loose in envelopes/bags/packages or on ribbons. Makes a mess that I do not enjoy cleaning up. Glitter within glue, dots, stickers are fine.
👎🏼Tea bags (coffee lover here!)
👎🏼Puffy stickers (hard to put in journals)
👎🏼Cats (achoo!! I'm allergic and just not a fan)
👎🏼Make up/perfume samples (sensitive skin)
👎🏼I'm not a fan of fluorescent colors or yellow in general.
👎🏼Bookmarks (I listen to audiobooks).
👎🏼Not interested in any Tarot/witches/magic/clown items.
I like upbeat music from just about any genre. 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!
I listen to audio books. Mystery and dramas are my favorite.

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. I've been all over the United States including Alaska. Internationally I've visited: Barcelona, Spain; London, England; Mexico, Canada and the Philippines.
💟 I'm a runner/jogger/walker/hiker. I recently have been quite involved with virtual racing.
💟 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.
💟 I enjoy VR Cardio games (Supernatural, Beat Saber) and do work out with Peloton workouts as well.
