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 miss going to Disneyland but one day it will reopen.

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

My favorite crafts are not interesting me much these days. I have been trying to do different crafts as of late. I like diamond painting as it relaxes me. I only make journals now occasionally. I haven't been writing much as I find it depressing.

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 pop and rock music. Recently I have been into K-pop bands (G)idle and Blackpink.

I prefer watching mostly DIY on YouTube or TV shows on Netflix/Hulu.

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 subscribe to Stickii and buy all three packs. They are awesome stickers that are non kiddie, non alpha, great for planners. 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.

Deco Book Info

I enjoy working on deco books. I don't mind occasional homers to international destinations especially if you double check the return address.

Some of you may end up finding in your deco book work that has been done by Baba my mother who is a watercolor artist. She does the work but has me attach it to the book and mark the information for her. It will be signed pfa or P. Anderson instead of her nickname Baba. She loves looking at the deco books and I do encourage her to work on a page because that does help them move them along faster also her work is exceptional.

I use the following picture of her work in my swaps.


Looking For A Collector

I am currently looking for a collector of finished Deco Books, Magpie and Junk Journals. Someone who might take finished ones that no longer have a home. If this might be you, please message me here at swap-bot.

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.

The End


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~
