About Me

UPDATED PROFILE 10/15/2021

My name is Stephanie, She/her. I am in my late 30's, reside in Florida with my soulmate/life partner/forever fiancé of 9 years & two wild but mostly pleasant children. I have 17pets/livestock, a decent garden, and a property that needs a ton of work constantly. Sometimes juggling that with the kids and household duties can be daunting and some days I don't make it inside until 7/8 pm when all I want to do is shower and watch 30 minutes of tv then pass out. XD Because of this, I mostly join less involved/less time consuming/craft heavy swaps. But when I have some free time I do enjoy paper crafting and creating things like friendship folders for my penpals especially. My favorite holiday is Halloween. I love all things spooky and strange.

I am one of those weirdlings who takes swapping as a commitment. If I join a swap, it is going out to you, most likely well before the last send date. I will also read over your profile to try and curate the swap to your liking, depending on what I have available to send. It can be hit or miss but I always try to find something I believe you will enjoy.

Swappable Items: I am no longer playing FB's or sheets, and also not interested in X-slips. I love to send and receive bags of all types, especially sticker bags. I have made and sent out over 600 bags so far this year. I also enjoy washi and sticker decos and slams.

I ALWAYS send & I always rate, usually on the day I've received. If I have somehow missed rating you, please message me and I will fix it promptly. I will always angel any swaps I have hosted if you have been flaked on, and said flaker will be banned from joining in on any future swaps I may host as well.

I re-use/recycle packaging and usable craft materials and I hope you do the same! =D

⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔

I had a short lived obsession with the Twilight Saga & founded a group called Twihards that was active 2010-2011. The group is still open, but not active.

Favorite Crafts

As of 2021, I have moved back to paper crafting. I bullet journal and also use a travelers notebook that I enjoy decorating. I made my first simple junk journal in a fairy tale/kingdoms/fantasy theme in early 2021 and the pages are much too pretty to decorate. XD Vintage themed is my current favorite for journaling & stickers but I also love kawaii and other things. My letters will slow down when its busy seasons for me (usually beginning of summer, parts of fall and winter) but I will always respond.I typically respond within a month, sometimes 2 depending on how busy life is at the time. I do enjoy swapping flat goodies like stickers (I currently receive stickii, four bears and pipsticks... I'm a bit addicted to stickers!!!), papers, and washi samples, etc, and I enjoy longer letters. If you receive a letter from me it will usually be 2 pages or longer.

My Family

Wishlist/Likes/Dislikes

Wishlist:

STICKERS. ALL the stickers. I love them, My kids love them. Some of my favorite themes: mail/correspondence, herbs, nature, forest, woodland creatures and fauna, buildings/architecture, Halloween, spooky, strange, magick, macabre, antique, vintage, the color combinations of red and black or blue pink and purple, pirates, tarot, witches, fantasy creatures (not unicorns or mermaids though), vintage. I do not like dollar store stickers. They always lose their stickiness.

Stationery (Decorated letter pages and envie, even if it's printed by you)

Pirate themed ANYTHING, especially flat items for a junk journal

Ledger paper, written on or not/vintage or not

Any interesting papers except magazine pages that are thin.

Paper Tags (like Classiky brand), or any others with a pretty border

Fairytale, kingdom, or fantasy themed items for a junk journal

Steampunk items, especially printed papers, images, & metal gears

Book pages in any language. Points for Russian and German especially!

Vintage looking paper, sticker, etc items (doesn't have to be actual vintage).

Die cut papers. I love them.

Colors: I love solids, darker colors & neutrals especially. Red and black being my favorite colors. I also love the opposite end of the spectrum, with pink blue and purple together being one of my favorite combination of colors. I'm not a huge lover of pastels but most of my penpals and friends are.

Animals: I love realistic looking over cartoon/kid themed animals. My favorites are dolphins, tigers, pandas, koalas, & frogs. Woodland creatures too.

Holidays: Halloween is my favorite. I love all things spooky, strange, dark... Christmas is my least favorite. My mother was a Christmas Around the World Rep when I was growing up so Christmas was everywhere, all the time. Easter is my second favorite holiday. I love Spring.

  • Kawaii:

I'm not fond of Hello Kitty & my daughter has outgrown it as well. I do like the other Sanrio characters. I love ghosts, anything halloween or gothic or witchy, vintage styles, pastels, dark colors (from one end of the spectrum to the other!) I keep name brand kawaii separate from others so I don't mix them up & would appreciate if you did the same. I used to collect licensed kawaii and sell mixed sets on my etsy but don't have the same passion for it as I once used to. I have an entire box full of deco/pvc tape and hear that it's difficult to find these days so if you'd like some samples, message me if you'd like to do a swap. I'd happily take non-kawaii paper items (especially vintage style) in exchange for the deco Samples (not full rolls). Tenorikuma, Rilakuma, Badtz-Maru, Kutusita Nyanko, Sentimental Circus & Monokuro Boo are my favorite characters.

THINGS I DO NOT WISH TO RECEIVE:

  • I truly appreciate swaps & the effort everyone puts into putting them together, & I am easily pleased. With that being said, I do not want things that smell like smoke. I do not want to receive religious items, pamphlets, etc. Above all, do not send me racist or political items.

  • Sticker dislikes: Please do not send me reward, teacher, planner, kid themed (unless they are extras for my kids), dog stickers (unless it happens to be a full sheet of Shiba Inu), no cutesie animal stickers (unless they are kawaii flakes), no Lisa Frank unless it's as an extra. I can buy a book of 8 sheets of LF stickers for $1 and would prefer not to receive them for swaps. Dollar store sticker sheets. They don't have the quality of most stickers and lose their stickiness quickly & end up falling off of paper.

I love things that you took precious time from your life to make. Handmade things are the best gifts because time is the most valuable thing there is in my eyes.

Food & Drink

I love tea. Packaged or loose. Send me your favorite homegrown tea recipe please! I am growing my own herbs and tea plants. Black, herbal, I enjoy it all.

Favorite Television

I enjoy some dramas, historical dramas, romantic comedies, etc from time to time but rarely watch tv.

I am an avid reader. I read every single night before bed. I love fantasy, YA, and some horror. Reading has been a passion of mine since I was a small child & with all of the interests and hobbies I have ever tried and given up on, reading is the one thing that has consistently stuck with me, throughout my life. Lately I have been reading webtoons instead of novels.

Random Things

Music: I have what I've been told is eclectic taste. In my opinion, I just enjoy a bit of music from many different genres. I would love if you send me a playlist as an extra in any swap. I am always searching for hidden gems & music I haven't heard yet (ie:stuff you don't hear on the radio!). Send me your playlist!

I HAVE ANGELED:

I have not been rated for a whole bunch of swaps sadly. I used to link them here but my profile is long enough & it's a waste of time. Please rate your partners. They put a lot of time and effort into the swaps you receive. Why is this so difficult for people to do?

  • Smoke free home!

Hey! I'm hosting a Halloween swap (woo!) so I wanted to spread the word in case you're interested: https://swap-bot.com/swap/show/321715

Hi Stephanie!! Thank you so much for the wax seals and all the vintagey goodies you sent for the Sunshine swaps and mail > Pick two. Looking forward to using all of it.

heliogal on Jun 13, 2021:

Hi Stephanie! Thank you so much for the lovely scrapbook papers and brads, jewelry making things and the fun ephemera you sent me for the LSRUS June wish list. I am so excited to make stuff with all of it!! I am thinking sometime in the future we should do a private swap for herbs or something about herbs. I'll give it some thought and you let me know if you would be interested in something like that.
