💌UPDATE: NEW ADDRESS💌 💥July 2022: 📦🚚🏡I moved AGAIN, local this time, but I will be pretty silent on here until things are a bit settled (hopefully sometime in August). I moved to Idaho from Oregon (Oct 2021), so please note that if you have an Oregon address on file it's no longer correct (but mail should be forwarded until October 2022).💖
📨I send swaps ASAP and I promise to rate as soon as I receive. 👛 If there is ever postage owing please let me know so I can make it right. 📫 I mark a swap sent once it has been dropped in the outgoing mail. If for some reason you have not received a swap from me in a reasonable time, please contact me before rating and allow for me to send a replacement or work something out.💌
LIFE: 🏕️I live in the woods/country (seriously I'm the sticks, next to a national forest) and I love the outdoors. I'm surrounded by wildlife (deer, turkeys, moose, bears, and other animals) and am so thankful for it.
👣I'm a Christian who prefers to not put God in a box, I just love me some Jesus, the non judgmental kind. I do my best to love and accept all people just as they are as we are all created to be uniquely awesome.💓
🌱🌎I am a bit of a granola gal, this means I care about the environment, animals, and other people. ♻I LOVE recycling/up-cycling and reusing items when I can and I love thrift shopping/buying second hand. So, when it comes to crafting I try to re-use and up-cycle items if possible (obsessed with junk journaling).
🙋♀️I'm in my 40's and have one cat fur baby.🐱
📖I'm a bit old school and love paper over a screen, this applies to reading, planning, and crafting. 💌I love snail mail, typewriters, and happy surprises.📃
🥑I run a small wellness business with my partner, he also helps keep me sane and is my adventure buddy. 💅I also sell Color Street as a side hustle and LOVE it!
🥾My partner and I love getting outdoors and we enjoy camping, geocaching, rock hounding, and hiking together.🏕️
😁I try to find the good in everything and be grateful even when I'm feeling overwhelmed by life. I often say, if you can't find the sunshine, be the sunshine 🌞.
CRAFTS: 💖I love crafting, I dabble in many but are a master of none.🖍️
📏I am currently enjoying paper crafts the most: making embellishments, mixed media, tags, junk/art journals & altered books, greeting cards, stationary, envelopes, etc. I enjoy rubber stamping (I love stamped images), using die cuts, embossing paper (dry and heat), sparkly and glittery stuff, and ephemera.🎟️
👾I also occasionally crochet small projects like jar cozies, bags, scarves, wrist warmers, and hats.
👑I enjoy beading small things too, mostly earrings.
👜I am a beginner with sewing so I have only made simple projects such as small bags and reusable wrapping paper/cloth.
✂I also enjoy random small projects such as painting rocks, perler beads, embroidery, mixed media, ATC's (I LOVE receiving playing cards especially when they have cute pictures on them), and modge podge.🎨
ENTERTAINMENT: 🎶 I enjoy most music, with the exceptions being gangsta rap, metal, and screamo, TobyMac is my favorite artist. I also love Rascal Flats, Jason Gray, and Lauren Daigle.
📚 I enjoy reading, I usually have at least one fiction and one non-fiction book going at a time. I have also recently got into audio books too, so I can craft/swap while also "reading" a book. Some of my favorite books I have recently read include "Fierce, Free, and full of Fire" by Jen Hatmaker (Oh my goodness I LOVE this book!), "Disconnected Kids" by Robert Melillo, "11/22/63" by Stephen King, :Wildflower" by Drew Barrymore, "The Safest Lies" & "All the Missing GIrls" by Megan Miranda, and "Ketofast" by Joseph Mercola.
I see myself as a lifetime learner so I enjoy absorbing true knowledge and skills.📑
🎲As for other indoor entertainment I enjoy games: board, card, dice games, and jigsaw puzzles. Rumikube is my current go to game.
🎬I also enjoy movies and some binge show watching. 📼 I prefer movies and shows that I feel better after watching, and ones that are not violent.
🎦Some shows I like are "This is Us". "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist", "Stranger Things", and "The Muppet Show".
🎥For movies I love documentaries (yup, nerd), comedies, dramas, and suspense. I don't have a favorite movie because there are just too many to love, but a few of my favorites include all the Muppet movies, "La La Land", "Mister Magorium's Magic Emporium", "It's a Wonderful Life", "Fantastic Mr. Fox", and "Monster's Inc.".🎭
😍I love snail mail and I hope to provide smiles with the happy mail I may provide through swaps.🐌💌
HOBBIES: ❤️I love getting outdoors🌲, LOVE camping⛺, hiking, rock hounding, and geocaching. I like the beach🌊 but mountains, trees, and lakes/creeks are my favorite.🌳🌼🌌
🍓🌻I also enjoy having a small garden with fruits and vegetables in the summer, along with some flowers to attract the wildlife, and for picking. I love flowers, birds, bees, and butterflies.🌷🌼🐦🐝🐛 🌿I have some indoor plants and although I don't have a green thumb I love plants so I do my best to keep them alive and thriving for as long as I can.
MY FAVORITES: 💚Green is my favorite color and then 💙 blue. 🌎 I love earth tone colors and bright colors.
I LOVE chocolate, 🍫dark chocolate being my favorite.
🌈My favorite seasons are Spring & Summer. I love the sunshine, the longer days, and the flowers.🌞
☕I love coffee and tea, both hot and iced coffee is good, but hot tea is my favorite way to enjoy it.
💕I LOVE animals,🐾 especially Cats😻, Sloths, Bears🐻, and Bison🦥.
❤️I LOVE Kermit the Frog from the Muppets, and I enjoy Sanrio characters, especially Hello Kitty, and stars amaze me, I love star gazing.🌠
💟I also love stickers, and have been collecting them for as long as I can remember. I love that they are little pieces of art that you can brighten things up with. I love washi tape, it's like stickers on a roll. I also enjoy ephemera, cute napkins, lace and fabric scraps, charms, and other goodies to jazz up junk journals with.💪😁

THINGS I LIKE LESS: I'm not easily offended.🚯 👃I prefer mail not be sprayed with perfume, it smells lovely but my body says nope to fragrance. I also dislike black licorice. Anything I receive that I don't prefer I will just pass along in a RAK or as an extra to someone I think will love it, so I am grateful for anything you send. 😁Thanks for reading this far into my profile. Have a beautiful day and happy swapping!🌟
