About Me


I am a 48yr old mom of two boys and I have been married 24 years now to a wonderful man who puts up with my crafting. Both of my sons are autistic (ASD). One is 20 and in college. The other is 12, in 6th grade and distance learning. We are blessed as my husband has been able to work from home.

I love butterflies and woodland animals such as foxes and deer. I look forward to going to Disneyland in the future. I am so happy that it has reopened!

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 with CA having "shelter in place" order. 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: The procrastination with me is real XD! Guilty as charged... >0< Boo on cancelling those two subscriptions... But I must say, my sticker pile is growing too large now also! Work is all right; it has been very hard getting used to returning to the office -.- The BF and I are headed out of town for a conference next week but we are quite stressed due to COVID numbers.. :/ We are both vaccinated and so will all conference-goers, but still... Vacation and travel do not feel the same with all the precautions and concerns.

Comment: Hi Selene, Thank You for being patient in receiving your rating for this swap. My slow return on the rating is not because I don't want to share my appreciation for your Outstanding Work. Instead, I'm challenged medically and my challenges sometimes dictate what I'm able to do. Thank you for the postcard that you started for this Coloring Swap. I think you used Colored Pencils. The colors you used were a Great Idea. I am looking forward to adding to this postcard that will come back to you when the entire postcard is complete. I am excited to add to this Coloring Postcard. I hope we have another, at least one, time(s) to swap with one another. Until then, Happy Swapping! Barbara B., sleepingrover2010
Response: Happy Swapping to you as well! <3

Comment: Thanks for the grumpy cat card. The grumpy cat movie was on tv a couple of years ago--I thought it was going to be really stupid but it was pretty funny. I misjudged grumpy cat! Susan (brooklynbunch)
Response: I have yet to see this movie! Now, hopefully it is on Netflix! <3
Comment: Thank you so much!
Response: My pleasure!
Comment: I need to get another letter swap round up asap! ^^ I also owe you a personal letter, a LOT has been happening lately..! >0< Also I am now more or less obsessed with AliExpress so shoutout to you hehe XD! I found some super cute "Starbucks" sakura items on there, great quality! A few of my friends have been playing a lot of Final Fantasy lately. We finally decided to make a Discord so we could at least catch up if we aren't all playing the same game :) I wanted to ask where you get your diamond paintings from! And those mystery kits too~
Response: Amazon is a pretty good place to find diamond paintings. Look for ones with less detail or the end product will look pixelated. Mystery diamond painting kits are best from Cateared in a 30x40cm size but they are a bit complex to start with.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter. The washi sticker sheets are very nice! I love those and use a lot since I have started kawaii journaling. If you are not familiar it's just journaling with loads of doodling, coloring, stickers and washi tape. :) Hope you are all keeping well.
Response: My pleasure. I love writing with you. <3

Comment: Great hearing from you again and I am excited about the MKLSS being active again. Thank you for the great letter :) I have really enjoyed seeing all your Diamond paintings in Instagram. You can really do those super fast it seems.
Response: It is so fun to write again. <3 I do diamond paint pretty fast I think. The square diamonds are a bit harder but I love the challenge. See you in the next swap! <3
Comment: Thank you for the cute cat card and the cat joke.
Response: My pleasure! <3
