*Please no extras that don't pertain to my 'things that make me happy' list..:)
Things that make me happy!
Iced coffee & tea ☕️ (my favorite brand of tea is Red Rose but I can't seem to find it in stores near me).. love trying new teas too :D
Stickers (I have no need for reward/planner type stickers but I LOVE vintage stickers :)
Washi (I don't use the thin washi but if you want to receive some let me know)
Succulents & cactus 🌵
Swimming & Racquetball
Unused US postage stamps
Road trips & going on cruises
Thrifting, antique stores & estate sales.
Paper crafts (I LOVE making my own stationery!)
Colorful birds!! I have a new found love for birds with Cardinals & Blue jays being my favorite!
Faith based (Christian) ephemera..I’m working on a faith based junk journal =)
Animal Crossing ANYTHING (also let me know if you would like to become friends because I don't have many LOL)
Things I collect: Starbucks You are here mugs, ANYTHING Johnny Cash or Animal Crossing.
+Kawaii: Sanrio! I honestly like all kawaii brands & characters but Sentimental circus & the fairy tale stuff. But if I need to narrow it down I would love to receive newer stuff as I have stopped buying Sanrio stationery because I can't find it anywhere anymore. For you Sanrio fanatics where online do you find stationery?
+Postcards: If you're wondering what to send in random swaps postcards are ALWAYS good! I like most any postcards especially touristy but postcards with quotes or phrases I put in my junk journal. I have all the Disney collections of postcards so I would prefer not to receive those. I have a smashbook where I put my favorite postcards that don't go in the junk journal. I do prefer them sent in an envelope but it is your choice & will craft with them either way =) If you're not sure what to write on a postcard tell me your favorite way to eat a bagel & what you put on it.
+Papercrafts that I enjoy: Scrapbooking, art & bible journaling, Smashbooks & junk journals, mail art, pocket letters, & card making. I used to do Project life but no longer do it..if anyone in the US is up for a private swap of the cards just message me!
+Books: I'm a huge reader! The following books are books I would like to have to complete my collection all by VC Andrews: Wildflowers, Shooting Stars, The Forbidden Heart, The Unwelcomed Child & Out of the rain.
Dislikes/pet peeves: Please do not send torn or tattered items or things you would otherwise throw away or when people send fragile items & don't secure them. I do not need any flat paper items that arrive bent because of lack of proper packaging... I almost always throw them in the trash...bad packaging will not receive a heart from me.
I'm allergic to cigarettes but because you can't control who you send to it would be kind if you put a note on your envelope that you're a cigarette smoker as a heads up :)
The good, the bad and the ugly:
DISCLAIMER: If you haven't received a swap from me please message me before rating. I send out EVERY swap on time so if you haven't gotten a swap from me then it may have gotten lost or is just taking awhile since I live in the country. My local post office does not postmark so my swaps almost always have a late postmark. I live 4 hours away from the post office that sorts where my mail goes so it does take awhile. On the flip side since I send out all my swaps on time no matter if it's a pain in the butt I will rate down if I receive a swap that has been sent out late with NO NOTICE. I hustle hard to get my swaps sent out on time, sometimes making a special trip to the PO so I expect the same courtesy of my partners. If I see that people in my group swaps are improperly rating others (like giving a 5 when I know the swap was sent out late) or not rating their partners I will ban you from future swaps. If all this is a problem for you then simply pass on my swaps.
