About Me


I am a 49yr old mom of two boys and I have been married 25 years now to a wonderful man who puts up with my crafting. Both of my sons are autistic (ASD). One is 21 and in college. The other is 14 and in 8th grade.

I love butterflies and woodland animals such as foxes and deer. I look forward to going to Disneyland in the future.

My family and I do celebrate secular holidays.

Please message me if a swap is late or gone missing. During this Covid-19 virus time, I am not directly handing my mail over to the post worker as per usual before clicking the SENT on Swap-bot. I am placing the swap in my mailbox and then clicking SENT otherwise I would forget to click SENT if I wait. Depending on when the USPS picks up the mail, it may be postmarked the day after I SENT it. This should not cause a problem as I send my mail off days before the send by date.

Favorite Crafts

I am taking a break from making books. I had a lot of fun making journals, magpie books and deco books but I have moved on a bit from them.

As of late I have been diamond painting, bead embroidery, stitching and might pick up miniatures again.

This is a couple of pictures of diamond painting. The first is using a light pad. It can help quite a bit for those that have difficulty seeing.

I tend to do diamond painting with special rhinestones. I just enjoy all the colors. Similar to what you see below. You can see more on my IG link at the top of my profile.

Favorite Music, TV & Books

I prefer listening to YouTube the most. I will have it on in the background while crafting. I do watch some shows on Netflix but it is on rare occasion. I have been watching DARK and Lucifer as of late.

I have actually never had a favorite book. I used to read lots of books as a teen. As I became older, I just had worse and worse reading comprehension. I read passages over and over and nothing stuck. I found it very frustrating. It took me a while but I found out it is from a symptom of fibromyalgia called fibrofog.

Small Things I Enjoy

I love stickers, except puffy. I subscribed to Stickii and would by all the packs. They are awesome stickers that are non kiddie, non alpha, great for planners. I highly recommend them. Check them out at this Stickii Link

I do enjoy stamped images that I can color in and add to my journals.

I do like Kawaii stationery but I am not picky about it. So if you are in a Kawaii swap that is particular don't worry about what you send to me. I am okay with receiving Diaso, American Kawaii, and cheap Sanrio.

Disney characters, especially Minnie and Mickey. Oh and Stitch.

Postcards - No preferences.


Had a bad day, week, month? Running low on note cards, stationery but want to keep swapping? Message me if you would like a RAK (Random Act of Kindness) and I will see what can be done.


No Thank you, please

Please as a side note, I do not wish to receive anything religious. I am not religious but respect all religions and the people who practice them.

Sadly, candy treats I cannot have. I am on a special diet from my physician.

Please no clothing or house hold items.

I really don't care for glitter.
Please Note: A tiny amount well stuck to the paper such as on a card or sticker is fine.

I don't care for confetti or sequins.

I personally don't use temporary tattoos so they just get passed along.

I personally don't use puffy stickers as they are don't match my aesthetic for journals and so I just pass them along.

I personally don't use classroom reward stickers but I do pass them along to a few teachers that love them.

Comment: AliExpress has ended up being my go-to for the weird and oddly specific diamond paintings I do - like the one that has "hidden" Animal Crossing characters in it and the pastel "GameBoy" one I am working on right now. I need to do more smaller ones. I picked up some that were supposed to be 20x30" but ended up being that INCLUDING the frame - it turned out to be a cute little size, perfect for small spaces.
Response: Many of the budget diamond paintings the size includes the edges doh! Hehe.

Comment: Hi Selene! I got your letter just in time while writing mine to reply~ Thanks for all the diamond painting tips - I am finishing my second large-ish diamond painting [this one is 40x50*] and am soon to start a HUGE one [45x65]. I would love to maybe frame a few of these when I am finished. ^^

Thank you for sending me your felt hydrangea project leftovers! So sweet! I may very well be incorporating them in my current visible mending project: a picnic blanket that's housed a garden mouse in winter...

My coloring collab postcard was received home. Here's an interesting tidbit - I started it in round #2 in February, 2021 and it was completed in round #26 in April, 2022! Such a neat thing to imagine where the postcard has been.
