About Me

I am 48 and have lived in Arkansas for most of my life. I am married and the mother of two wonderful children. I have a 19 year old daughter and a 16 year old son. I am Southern Baptist.

I'm a rather happy and content person. I like to see the joy and blessings in everyday life.

I love to read, create things with my hands, write letters, and make fun journals..

I started creating journals and I enjoy it. I like writing things down about my daily life. I enjoy reading about other people's everyday life and getting a glimpse into their world. My favorite journals are randomness and magpie journals.

My other favorite swaps are letters, chatting about books and fun mail.

I will be joining swaps that make me happy in 2021.

Favorite Books

❤️❤️❤️ I LOVE to read. ❤️❤️❤️

I will read anything that looks or sounds interesting. I don't really limit myself to one genre. I read according to my mood so that's why it varies from book to book. I like to read Historical, Regency and Contemporary Romance, Women’s Lit, Suspense, and Mystery. I am not a big fan of Sci-fi or Horror. That being said I will read a scary book now and then.

I like Sara Addison Allen, Sophie Kinsella, Lia Louis, Kate Canterbary, Sonali Dev, Eloisa James, Kendall Ryan, Kristin Higgins, Magan Vernon, Lucy Score, Sara Donati and Eva Devon.

I have enjoyed ~Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen~The Coincidence of the Coconut Cake by Amy E. Reichert~The Book Charmer by Karen Hawkins~Midnight at the Blackbird Cafe’ by Heather Webber~The Guilded Hour & Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati~Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck & Fortune by Rosella Lim~The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary~Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn~The Book of Lost Friends by Lisa Wingate~

My Favorites So Far in 2021

*By a Thread by Lucy Score

*The Spinster and The Rake by Eva Devon

*Dear Emmie Blue by Lia Louis

If you are a reader, I would love to hear what you like to read and some of your favorite authors.

Books say: She did this because. Life says: She did this. Books are where things are explained to you; life is where things aren't. I'm not surprised some people prefer books. - Julian Barnes

Books are everywhere; and always the same sense of adventure fills us. Second-hand books are wild books, homeless books; they come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack. Besides, in this random miscellaneous company we may rub against some complete stranger who will, with luck, turn into the best friend we have in the world. ~Virginia Woolf

My Favorite Swaps

My favorite swaps are journals, writing letters, happy mail and small craft projects.

I like to be creative and find crafts to be an outlet for it. I am not an expert at anything but love to try new things.

Interested in Swapping

I am interested in swapping for small items, postcards, cards, notecards, fun quotes, bookmarks and various crafting items.

I love anything to do with scrapbooking such as paper, stickers and embellishments.

I like bible verses and spiritual quotes. I collect quotes so the more whimsical the better.

I like doing journals.

^Randomness journals- journals filled with things that I like.

^Magpie Journals- journals filled with whatever catches my eye like a magpie bird.

If you are interested in doing a private swap with me for any of these items, or just want to swap with me send me a PM.

If you think we have something in common feel free to contact me.

Favorite Things

My favorite colors are red, pink, bright yellow, purple and teal. I like shabby chic things (roses, lace, etc.)

I like cats and collect things with cats on them.

I like daisies, peonies, sunflowers and daffodils.

I like stationery, notecards, journals and neat pens and pencils.

I like to collect quotes about everything and bible verses.

Scrapbook paper, embellishments, stickers and other pretties.

I love chocolate. My favorite candies are Peanut M&Ms, Reese's Pieces, Butterfingers, Snickers, Milky Ways, and Starbursts. I also would like to try different dark chocolates.


I am not a big fan of dark and goth stuff. I also don't like sour candies or need any drink mixes.


Music: I love to listen to Top 40, country,
Christian and some classical music.

Swapping Info

I am not a flaker. If you are my partner and you don't receive your swap, let me know and I will send you another one. I don't like to be flaked on and I wouldn't do the same to you. Please contact me first, before leaving a negative rating. I would like the chance to make up a missing swap to you before receiving a low rating.
