I love the beach, gardening/flowers, reading, tea/afternoon tea, walking/hiking, riding my bike, baking/eating cupcakes/sweets, animals, crafting, reading cookbooks/trying new recipes, traveling to new places, trying new things, inspirational quotes, and learning something new. I also love spending time with my family and dog.

I love all kinds of music: Classic rock, music from the 70' 80's, and 90's, Jazz, French music, dance music, and some Top 40 music.

Favorite Crafts

I love working with paper/tissue paper, ribbon, embellishments, stickers, Washi tape, tags, decorating/making envelopes, fun/fancy alphabet letters, journaling, SMASHBOOKing, creating scrapbooks, sewing, gift wrapping, and baking!

I really enjoy reading cookbooks, self-enrichment/inspirational books, biographies, fashion/craft/gardening magazines, and children's books (I have 11 year old boy).


I love anything having to do with ladybugs, butterflies, hummingbirds/birds, birdhouses/tree houses, performing random acts of kindness, tea (Earl Grey and green tea are my favorite!), beach, unique containers, decorated envies, cookies/cupcakes, fairy gardens, small things to put in my letter press box, flowers/plants, fun/cotton socks, fabric (any kind), craft/scrapbook paper, ribbon, stickers of any kind, washi tape and embellishments. I love all colors!

My Son

My son, Michael (11 years old) LOVES getting mail! He likes video games, Star Wars, Harry Potter, animals, building things, and books--he loves to read, any kind of post cards, and candy (Starbursts, lollipops, Skittles).

My Pledge

I pledge to rate with in 24-48 hours of receiving a swap. So if you don't receive a rating from me, please let me know.

I will never flake! I'm a pretty easy going person, but take my swaps very seriously. I put a lot of time and effort into my swaps and I want you to be happy with what I send, so if you don't receive a swap from me, please message me to let know me and I will follow-up on tracking # and/or will send again.

If you need some additional time to get a swap out, just let me know.


I love Reese's Peanut Butter cups, pretzel M&M's (blue bag), vanilla wafers and Nilla Wafers, and all kinds of nuts (walnuts, pistachios, almonds, cashews, etc. and chocolate covered sunflower seeds).

I love all types of cookies, especially ones that pair well with tea! I also love trying new things and would love to be introduced/try your favorite sweet/snack.

I love all kinds of tea (bagged or loose), my absolute favorite is Earl Grey and Green tea (any brand)—prefer decaffinated.

I don't have any known allergies.

Hi Anne! I went to visit family for the first two weeks in December and am just back home and finishing all of my last minute Christmas shopping and decorating. We just put the ornaments on the tree tonight! I did not bring any packages with me so today was the first day I opened #1 and #2 of your Christmas Surprises. The vintage Christmas paper you sent was amazing! Thanks so much and I love the Christmas tree stamp too. I just had to come over and say thanks so much.

thriftymermaid on Nov 25, 2014:
