UPDATED PROFILE 4/7/2021
HI! Please make sure when labeling my address, that you do so exactly as is shown. I have been receiving mail lately with the little "We're lucky we found you" sticker from the post office because the #'s are incorrect or missing the 0 at the end. I know, my address has too many similar #'s at the beginning but I can't do much about that so please take care when writing it out.TY
My name is Stephanie, She/her. I am in my late 30's, reside in Florida with my other half and two children. I currently have a little hobby farm. I collect books, stickers, pens, and paper crafting items. I enjoy long letters, reading and writing them. I love a variety of things from being outdoors, swimming, gardening, walking to hiding indoors crafting and even playing the occasional video game. My ideal life would be to live in a cozy little cottage with a dog, a goat, and some chickens with a little vegetable and herb garden with a forest or mountains as a backdrop in the 70's (Fahrenheit) all year long away from the world. A person can dream right? XD
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 that promptly.
I re-use/recycle packaging and usable craft materials and I hope you do the same! =D (During the current pandemic, I have not been upcycling packaging but rather making my own envelopes out of cardstock/scrapbook papers)
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.
As of 2021, I have moved back to paper crafting. I bullet journal, use a travelers notebook that I enjoy decorating, as well as Llewellyns Witches Journal this year which has been excellent for recording my garden plantings. I love vintage themes, using washi, and stickers. I just made my first simple junk journal and I'm infatuated! My letters will slow down when its busy seasons for me but I will always respond. I prefer to write once a month or every 2-3 months depending on how busy life is at the time. I do enjoy swapping flat goodies like stickers and washi samples, etc, and I enjoy longer letters. If you receive a letter from me it will usually be 2 pages or longer.
(Update 2021:) My sisters no longer participate in swap-bot but for a time I inspired my sisters to begin swapping here (they are very crafty and artistically inclined and we all share the same love for creating new things)
Updated to 2021!: I now have a preteen girl and a little boy
What she would like to receive (for any kids swaps I join for her) would be:
Anime anything! Stickers! We unfortunately lost her sticker book while moving in 2019, where she had been saving stickers from the time she was 5. I know, so sad. So both of the kids have started new sticker books as her brother has as much fun with them as she does! Super cute plushies or anime plushies Anything sky, cloud, or starry Notepads Craft Kits
My son: He loves all things LEGO, Mario themed, Minecraft and more! Stickers Small toys Plushies
My other half: Enjoys baseball, football, the weather, video games & video game accessories, & wrestling entertainment. He is a great guy with a big heart, and can always make me laugh. He is sarcastic, goofy & a big nerd & I love the crazy crap out of him. He is a gamer! I love watching him play! Though he doesn't have much time to game these days with work. Put the two of us together and you are bound to end up laughing your butt off!!! (Or at least looking at us like we're crazy.. O_o :P )

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. I don't want them.
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.
I love tea. Packaged or loose. Send me your favorite homegrown tea recipe please! I have a garden these days and grow many things for making my own teas, including but not limited to: lemongrass, sage, rosemary, lemon balm, peppermint, spearmint, roses, and more! I just bought a Camellia Sinensis (Tea plant!) Its the Chinese tea type (serrated leaves), not Allum type. And it is a new plant so it will be around a year before I will begin to harvest from it for tea making but I am so excited about it!
I dont watch cable but we have Netflix and Hulu though I rarely watch tv these days unless I'm sick and stuck in bed.
I have most recently enjoyed watching:
*The Witcher , *KDramas & Cdramas My All-time favorites would be: Descendants of the Sun, Strong Girl Bong-soon (or whatever variation the title has), Black, & A Love So Beautiful (original Cdrama version)
Shows I've watched or binged in the past:
* Game of Thrones.
* Reign (I loved this at first but never finished the show)
* The Walking Dead (It's close to home as R.K. is a schoolmates older brother & I grew up reading the comics in their beginning stages!)
* Secret Circle
* Supernatural. I am on Season 7. (2021: We never did finish Supernatural)
* Breaking Bad
* American Horror Story (stopped watching at season 5)
* The Vampire Diaries (still need to watch the last season)
* Heroes (Season 4)
* Adventure Time
* NCIS (Watch Randomly)
Music: I have what I've been told is eclectic taste. In my opinion, I just enjoy a bit of music from a lot of genres. I would love if you send me a playlist as an extra in any swap. I am always searching for hidden gems when it comes to music. Send me your playlist!
I HAVE ANGELED:
I have not been rated for 8 swaps. I used to link them here but my profile is long enough & you get the gist.
Smoke free home (yay!) and loving it!
We now have TWO dogs in our home. So if you have allergies, I am not the best swap partner for you unfortunately. We also have chickens, pigs, a goat, and a rabbit but they are outside. XD
