About Me

Update: I am taking a short break from swapping for a bit as other priorities need to be taken care of. I'm looking forward to getting back to swaps soon. 2/13/24

Hello! I'm Renee

📫 I mark a swap sent once it's dropped in the USPS blue mailbox.

🐌💌 If for some reason you have not received a swap from me in a reasonable time, please contact me before rating & allow me to work something out.

🌟Happy Swapping!🌟

💖LIFE: I'm a 46 yr old single mama living in the city of Portland, Oregon. I grew up in the country, but now am a city girl simply because Portland is where I've landed.

I spend most of my hours enjoying life with my 4 year old girl, Alison Grace, as we explore the world around us. When I have free time, I like to get my creative juices flowing by what has inspired me.

I enjoy receiving homemade items from artists & crafters. I'm not artistic, but I do like to get my craft on!

✝️I'm a Christ follower who tries my best to do as He asks, love God & love others.

I am an extroverted HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) & an ENFJ-T. I'm overly sensitive & a worrier, but I am optimistic & appreciate the little things. I tend to give everyone the benefit of the doubt & forgive incredibly easily.

♻️I'm a bit of a "hippie" & big on recycling/up-cycling & reusing items when I can. Being a single mama means funds are tight, so being thrifty & refreshing second hand stuff is an adventure of its own as I find & create new treasures.

🐱I have a 14 year old calico cat (Talulla). She enjoys eating houseplants, shredding papers that were left out & playing with toys & my kiddo. I never expected that they would get along so splendidly.

💌 I have chronic pain & have dealt with it longer than not; so I'm used to it. However; sometimes it's difficult for me to get the big stuff done. This is when I like to bless others with HAPPY MAIL!

Basic Favorites

🌈I like bright, BOLD & FLUORESCENT COLORS & SPARKLY things.

🌟I reeeally like GLOW IN THE DARK stuff!

🪐🔭I am obsessed with space right now & blown away by the mind blowing facts of the universe.🌌

🪴🌵I love house PLANTS, I have a varied collection (we just passed the 100th plant) & enjoy the variety of each one.

🐾I adore ANIMALS, especially CATS🐱, Sloths🦥, Flamingos🦩, Pangolins, Orangutans🦧 & other critters considered "strange/weird".

❤️I love anything Jim Henson created; THE MUPPETS make me happy, especially KERMIT THE FROG. 🐸

💗🧸I love the Care Bears, the original 10, especially 🌈Cheer Bear & ☀️Funshine Bear are my favorite.

☕️ 🫖 I enjoy a good cup of black tea. I like my tea with honey & creamer (eggnog if available). I do drink other teas, although I’m not a fan of fruity tea.

🎀I grew up with HELLO KITTY, so I adore Sanrio.

🫧I really like KEWAII cuteness. Add a little cartoon face to ordinary objects & BAM, it's cute!

💟I have always enjoyed STICKERS, all kinds. I'm trying to currently curb my addiction, but it's proving difficult so I just need to share them in order to make space for more.

✂️I like most anything that can be used to make paper crafting items.🔖

🗺️I love TRAVELING as well as planning the trip prior to going. I like the touristy sight seeing spots & any place with natural beauty.

✈️I have yet to do much traveling outside of the United States, but I have so much more to see in the US. I have been to 46 states. Hawaii, Florida & The Carolinas are on my bucket list.

🤣I like JOKES, even elementary school jokes. Laughing is so important!

🤗TEENY TINY THINGS: rocks, charms, miniatures & anything small. Why are itty bitty things, made to look like regular sized items, so darn adorable?!

🧵🪡I love EMBELISHMENTS, (FABRIC scraps, lace, ribbon, ricrack) anything that I can add to my girl's clothes to make them girlier. She has a lot of hand me downs that are "boy's" clothes & she is a complete "girly girl" & adores frilly, sparkly, pink stuff.

👧🏼My girl is a 4 year old mini me. She loves books, crafting, stickers, animals, cooking, drinking tea (herbal), playing board games & enjoys lots of time outdoors. She is super smart, silly & kind. Her laughter is the best & her smile & squishy cheeks make my day. She is a joy to be around.

Favorite Crafts

🧵🪡SEWING! I'm new to sewing, but enjoy adding embelishments & re-fashioning hand-me-downs & thrift finds. I look forward to expanding my skills now that I have a craft area dedicated to sewing.

✂ PAPER CRAFTS of all sorts, especially cards as I enjoy sending them to spread cheer.

📿BEADING of all kinds, but earrings are my favorite. I like being able to create a pair of earrings that I can pass on to someone who will wear & enjoy them.

🎨KID'S CRAFTS, any type really. I'm not a huge fan of the messy stuff though. I like kid's crafts b/c they're a great way to upcycle items that might otherwise go to waste & you don't need to be an artist to make them.

🧶KNITTING, which I have been doing for some time now. I enjoy yarn & the calmness that knitting brings to me... as long as the projects I work on are somewhat easy & small.

Random assortment:

It can be True Crime or Fictional, I enjoy watching just about anything that is crime drama. British shows are my favorite as US shows tend to have too much drama. I basically like any British crime show on AcornTV.

Favorite Addictions


Pinterest is the most perfect site for me & has so much that interests me. A site full of inspiration & a way to save & organize the things I discover... for FREE!!!

Pinterest is just too good to be true for me.


Most books geared towards adults tend to bore me & I can't get through them. This might be due to my short attention span, or the wordiness of them.

I like picture books, beginner reader books & chapter books. I like young adult books that are coming of age stories, Dystopian Sci Fi, or a good mystery.

I also enjoy a good craft book or cookbook to get inspired.

🏫The LIBRARY is one of my favorite places, I spend hours each week exploring what books they have that interest me. I might admit that I'm addicted to the library, but at least it's an addiction that doesn't cost me any money!


📚My dream job is to be an elementary school LIBRARIAN. If I could go back to school that's what I would do.

✈️I want to TRAVEL again, I'd like to finish seeing a part of every state. I'd like to travel abroad & see how other cultures are in real life. And, I just like the thrill of waking up in a new place & working out how to get around & meeting total strangers who have great stories to share.

💖I hope my kiddo will have an incredible childhood that she can look back on with fond memories. I don't want her to go through any of the trauma I did & wish she makes amazing friends along the way while she experiences some incredible adventures.


❌Strong scents 🤢

I do LOVE a good Scratch 'N Sniff sticker though!

❌Coffee and Dark chocolate 🤮

❌Anything disrespectful or political 🙅🏻‍♀️

I love mail!
