About Me

Alt text what I pledged

Feb 2 2023 UPDATE We got some bad news about my grandmother's health I'll try to get through ratings as I can.

I am not doing decos any so please DO NOT send me any!

I love to read, swap, listen to music, sip on tea or flavored coffee. All while cuddling my adorable dog!

I am disabled with fibromyalgia and bipolar disorder. Jedi, my bichepoo (bichon frise & mini poodle mix) is my emotional support dog.

I live in an apartment, with my furbaby. I live in a medium-sized town smack between Milwaukee, WI, and Chicago, IL. The most famous person to come out of my hometown/current town of residence is Mark Ruffalo.

Favorite Music

Alt Rock above all particularly Imagine Dragos, Mariana's Trench, and The Script

Pop/Top 40- or at least I loved it in the '90s and 00's (think P!nk, Blink 182, etc) as well as Mariana's Trench my current favorite adult pop band.

Pop-Country if that makes any sense- Like Blake Shelton

Soundtracks- 10 Things I Hate About You, RENT (movie cast), and A Walk to Remember Soundtrack

Broadway- WIcked, RENT (Broadway cast), and Avenue Q

And the Glee Albums!

Likes & Dislikes

Likes

Dogs and coffee drinks are two obsessions of mine. I can name most dog breeds by sight or description. I love Starbucks!!

I've also recently fallen in love with kawaii penguins, dogs, and hedgehogs! Anything with them would be amazing!

My favorite colors are pink, purple, teal, and mint green. I love books, chocolate, coffee, tea, and dogs, as well as anything to do with those things.

I collect coffee mugs. I also collect bookish items (my favorite are candles) as well as dog-themed items.

I love candy, mostly chocolate, I prefer milk or white with some other flavor or a filling, caramel, mint, raspberry, peppermint, orange, coffee.

I love candles, I really love the ones with sweet or book themed scents.

Tea: NO MORE TEA!! LOL thanks but I'm backed up for years!

Stickers: craft quality stickers, animals, food or drink, non-religious holiday stickers

Harry Potter anything! I'm a Hufflepuff. My favorite characters are: Luna Lovegood, Hermione Granger, Minerva McGonagall, Remus Lupin, Sirius Black, Albus Dumbledore, Fred and George Weasley, & Molly Weasley

Dislikes:

Hard to open envelopes, please don't tape every available edge, it's frustrating try to get them open, and I am terrified I'll cut something if I use scissors, so it just stresses me out.

Colors: greens-not of the shade mentioned in likes, orange, and brown.

Scents: floral or woodsy or smoke

Topics/themes: Sexism, racism, misogyny, harm to animals or children, violence against anyone esp sexual violence, religious items, homophobic; spiders or cockroaches or scorpions

Tea: Caffeinated

Stickers: Cheap or kids stickers, religious, puffy

Washi samples, it's not that I don't like them, I just have an over abundance and nowhere to store them! Please only send them if they're really unique, required as part of the swap, or related to my likes

Please NO bath or body items! My mom is extremely sensitive to strong scents and I have eczema!

I HATE when people send me religious items-especially promoting a specific religion or church. Please do not include or send anything religious including bible verses. I respect your religion please respect my right to not be religious.

Favorite Crafts

I'm only really doing traveling postcards at the moment, in addition to decorating my planners, due to lack of space and energy.

Swaps

I click for having sent the item on the date I put it in the mailbox, even if it's a holiday or Sunday and it will be picked up the next day, so if the date on the envelope doesn't match the sent day, this is why.

If something doesn't arrive please contact me, and I'll do my best to resend, please try to contact me before rating me a 1 or 3. I will never not send something,

I will message you if I will be sending late, which will happen very rarely! I don't have a car, due to my disability, so my bf mails things for me or takes me to the PO, so if something is late that is probably why.

ABCs of me

A- Albus Dumbledore

B- bichons or bichepoo (bichon/mini poodle mix), books

C- coffee, cats (not as good as dogs but stil ;) ), chocolate (i prefer milk or white), cake, cupcakes

Favorite Books Movie and TV

Dean Koontz, Marissa Meyer, Jim Butcher, Amanda Foody and Ellen Hopkins are some of my favorite authors.

I DO NOT SUPPORT what JKR has said on social media and I ask that you don't buy me licensed merchandise for HP stuff, if it's not licensed and JKR doesn't make money off it of, buy away, or just send something from your stash!

I love the Harry Potter series both the books and the movies, though the books were better! I also love The Lunar Chronicles series, The Dresden Files, Stalking Jack the Ripper series and Odd Thomas series as well as. The Perks of Being a Wallflower is my all-time favorite book.

I like most YA books unless they have names I can't figure out with my dyslexia. I also enjoy sci-fi/fantasy and New Adult Romance.

My favorite movies are The Breakfast Club, Saved, A Walk to Remeber, Bring it On (only the first one), and many other 80s-00s teen movies, especially John Huges' movies.

My favorite TV shows include: Pretty Little Liars, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, This is Us, Marvel's Runaways, The Vampire Diaries, and The Handmaid's Tale.

Postcard Preferences

I love animals especially dogs, penguins, or anything cute and fuzzy.

I'm not big on touristy cards. I don't like religious cards at all.

Coffee, tea, chocolate, Harry Potter or book postcards are sure to get a heart!

Sticker Subscription ISO

I've added my Google Photo album of my ISO, If you have any of these I have ones to swap or I'd love to receive them in a swap!
