About Me

NOTE - I was just in my post office and was informed that one of our regular postal workers is in India for 3 months and that another left to work somewhere else. This is resulting in some of my mail being delayed. Packages shouldn't be a problem as I have to go in the post office to mail those, but anything that I sent out in my actual mail box might not be sorted for a few days. This is going to affect some postmarks so I wanted to make everyone aware of this. From now on I'll be dropping my mail off at the post office to avoid this, but please keep this in mind when you receive my mail.

Thank you!

Hello! My name is Grace and I am so excited to be a part of the Swap-Bot community.

I am 25 years old and I live just outside of Chicago. I work full-time during the week as a nanny for a family with four little girls, and I also have a part time job on the weekends at a rock 'n' roll general store.

Favorite Crafts

I love writing letters and have quite a few pen pals. I always try to make my letters as beautiful as possible. I'm always looking for new penpals too so just ask if you're interested!

I recently ventured into the world of making ATC's and I'm obsessed! Mine are still rather basic but I am learning and experimenting.

I was also given an envelope press and I have been having a blast making envelopes!

I Belong in a Zoo

I love animals, and visit The Brookfield Zoo as often as I can. Here are some of my favorite animals! I would be happy to receive any items relating to these creatures:






-Jack Russell Terriers




-Polar Bears





Avengers! Assemble!

Oh I just adore Marvel. I love the comics, the films, the TV shows... All of it.

My favorite characters are:



Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier


I also have a tattoo of a quote from Captain America: The Winter Soldier on my right foot

...till the end of the line

This is Halloween!

I love Halloween and am always, always open to receiving Halloween goodies any time of year!

Anything that fits into a Halloween theme is perfect too.



-Day of the Dead

-Disney Villains

-Edgar Allen Poe


-Haunted Houses


-Skeletons & Skulls

I have one dog. Ginger is a Jack Russell Terrier and my best friend. :)

Ginger LOVES treats and anything that squeaks. She is OBSESSED with tennis balls that squeak. She could play fetch all day if we let her and would always be happy to get some new balls in the mail!

I absolutely love to color and am always on the hunt for fun coloring books!

I am OBSESSED with geometric coloring books and/or mandala coloring books.

I'll be happy with anything though, just take a look at my likes and it shouldn't be hard to find something!


I'm pretty open to anything you want to send me, but I am allergic to pineapple so please save any tea/candy/food/etc. with pineapple in it for someone who will be able to use it. :)

I also don't like SpongeBob Squarepants or any cartoon aimed at adults (Family Guy, The Simpson's, etc...)

I always send my swaps out on time and will message my partner if there's any delay. I won't rate down for a late swap if there is communication before the deadline.

Comment: Grace has always been an excellent partner in the past to me so I am sad to make this rating but she has sent nothing and not been online since August. If she does ever send something I will change to a 3. I know she lost her job and that may have something to do with it.
MisplacedfromPA rated for Happy Birthday in 2015!!! on Nov 18, 2015
Comment: You received your presents from the group, yet did not do the favor in return. Hopefully you can amend this situation. I will rerate then.
sweetsugartree rated for Happy Birthday in 2015!!! on Nov 17, 2015
Comment: Never received anything in June for my birthday, so on June 28th, I contacted TheGraceMartin and she said she would "re-send." However, I never got an email with a tracking code as stated in the rules of the swap from her at all. I've emailed a couple of times and received no response. It's now Nov. 17th and still no swap. FLAKED! *Contact me if you want to change this rating one day to a 3.
PrincessB rated for Happy Birthday in 2015!!! on Nov 17, 2015
Comment: Never received from you on this, nor any response to contact asking about my birthday gift.
bgailk rated for Happy Birthday in 2015!!! on Nov 15, 2015
Comment: Contact has been made many times before now. 9/8/15. Will re-rate if received.
Comment: I'm so sorry to rate you a 1, but I haven't received anything. I've messaged you, but it's unread. If I receive the swap I will change my rating!
Response: I will resend right away. I am so sorry about this. I'm at a loss as to what happened to it but I will try and make it up to you.
joyceann888 rated for My State Pocket Letter May on Jul 15, 2015
Comment: Thanks for the great pocket letter!
Response: I'm glad you liked it! Thanks so much for the heart!
Comment: I really don't get how this card has anything to do with the Black Widow at all. I thought about giving you a three because of that. However you have been a good swapper with me in the past so I will just let this go. But I am very disappointed with it. I sent you a message and I thought you would maybe explain the card to me but you didn't write back.
Response: Hello! Did you ever get my resend on this ATC?
Comment: Thank you for my THOR ATC...I have loved this swap series and am loving my ATC collection.❤️ xxA
Response: I'm so glad to hear that! It's funny Thor is my least favorite Avenger but his ATC I made was my favorite and the ones I've received have been my favorite as well! Thanks for the heart!

Comment: I repined so many of your pins Grace! Thanks for sharing.
Response: I'm glad you liked it! Thank you so much for the heart!

Comment: Thanks for sharing your fun board with me! :D
Response: I'm glad you liked it! Thank you so much for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the nice Hulk card and all the extras. I love it! :)
Response: Thanks so much for joining my swap! I'm glad you liked my hulk ATC!
Comment: The melted witch unmelted! Interesting/creepiest thing ever - the wicked witch atc shows up in my mail TODAY! The envie and your notecard looks like they floated down a river but the atc looks like it has no water damage what so ever! No clue where it has been, literally floating for almost 4 months, maybe it did float here with all the rain. Anyway, I love the green background and gems/brads - really cool! Thanks for sharing your nailpolish technique, too! Thanks for the atc! One last thought - maybe a house landed on her when she passed over Kansas!
Response: That's crazy! I've had so much of my mail go missing recently I can't explain it. I'm glad it made it to you safely though! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: #3 of this series by you!!! I love it just as much as the others..thank you!
Response: I've had so much fun being partnered with you for so many of these swaps! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: love it..thank you so much!!
Response: Thanks so much for the lovely rating! I love having you in my swaps!
Comment: Wow he's beautiful! I love all the subtle glitter and the color scheme :D Thanks!
Response: I'm glad you liked it! Thanks so much for joining my swap and for the heart!
Comment: LOVE!!! A bazillion <3s!!! Thanks for the goodies too!
Response: I'm so glad that you like it! Thanks so much for joining my swap and for the lovely heart!

Just letting you know I still haven't received a tracking number or gift from you for the Birthday swap 2015. September is almost over in a few days and I haven't heard anything from you. Hope all is well with you and hope to hear from you soon.

bgailk on Aug 19, 2015:

I'm still waiting for your swap to me for Happy Birthday - 2015 for July. Sure hate to see you become a Flaker.

sweetsugartree on Jul 28, 2015:

Just wanted to leave you a note that if you have re-sent, I still haven't received. Not sure if it's still an issue with the postal service...
