Hello from Ryleighsmom!

April 2021- We have moved and itโ€™s taking our mail forever to be forwarded, etc. If I havenโ€™t rated you, I havenโ€™t received the swap yet. I promise to rate as soon as I have your swap in hand! ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿ’Œ๐Ÿ“ซ

Hello! My name is Michelle & I'm a happily married mom to a very busy daughter! I've been married since 1993. We spent 14 years on the painful journey of infertility. We were blessed in 2008 with a newborn through the miracle of adoption!!

I've been swapping off and on since 1984!

I am a conservative Christian who loves going to church. โค๏ธ


*Paper crafts such as pocket letters, junk and magpie journals, handmade envelopes and more



*Visiting our state parks

*Spending time with my family

*Thrift shops

*Decorating my home


*Upcycling junk into treasures

Favorite Television

I really don't watch much television, but when I do, I watch classics such as I Love Lucy and Andy Griffith. :) I also love shows about history.

Favorite Books

I love Christian fiction. I read lots of Amish fiction books in exchange for writing book reviews. I love it!

I also love regional books such as the Foxfire series. I love to read books set in the Appalachian mountain region.


My wishlist/loves:

  • New postage stamps, any value, any quantity! Even one new stamp makes me happy! I am a part of several card ministries and go through stamps like crazy!
  • Stickers (See below)
  • Note cards (See below)
  • Stationery
  • Food-scented candles & bath products
  • Ultra Fine Sharpies in all colors
  • $5 gift cards to my fave stores (see below)

For sticker & note card themes, I love anything Autumn related (apples, pumpkins, etc.), snowmen, Christmas, flowers...just about anything BUT teacher reward and boyish toys like transformers or whatever. I don't need anymore Dollar Store type note cards...have lots of those!

I love milk chocolate, peanut M & M's, Reeseโ€™s Peanut Butter cups, gum, etc. Not a fan of black licorice or raisins.

I am a Christian, so I love Christian themed things...not a collector of angels or anything, but I'm not offended by stickers or cards with Scriptures on them...in fact, I love them!

Favorite Stores

I love to shop at Hobby Lobby, Michael's, Joann Fabrics, Half Price Books, Homegoods, etc.

Goodies for my Daughter

My daughter LOVES to receive mail! Her birthday is July 1 (2008). Her name is Ryleigh . She loves cards, letters, balloons, candy, gum, etc. She LOVES anything music themed. She loves Mandisa, Toby Mac, Francesca Batistelli and more.


  • Coffee and anything coffee flavored or scented

  • Pagan, goth, bats, wiccan stuff

  • I don't wear jewelry, make-up or perfume.

*My BIGGEST Dislike is when people have a LONG Dislike list. We're here to have fun...if I don't like something I can surely pass it on!

I am VERY allergic to cat hair, cigarette smoke, coffee scented things, and lavender and lilac scented things.
