++After getting Covid & being sent 6 hours away for seven weeks my mom ended up losing her life (due to hospital negligence on their part)..a week before she would have been released from the hospital.
We are closing on our house in December & will be moving to another state so I don't know when I will feel up to swapping again but will be checking in here & there.
** Thank you to a Becky in Lake Tapps, Wa for the cactus stickers!! I couldn’t find your user name.
*Please see the section below about cigarette smoke.
Things that make me happy!
Iced coffee, tea ☕️ Bubble tea
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
Thrifting, antique stores & estate sales.
Scented wax (not a fan of bakery or sweets)
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 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, Echoes in the walls, The Unwelcomed Child & Out of the rain. The wish by Nicholas Sparks :)
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.
I leave this up for my own records if I don't hear/see that someone has received a wish or tag.
