About Me

Hello! I'm Jessica, 43 years old, & living in California, USA. I'm a witchy goth crazy cat lady who is beyond introverted. I wouldn't change it for the world.

Favorite Colors: black, dark grey, teal (the darker the better), & purple (the darker the better)

Yes, I am pagan. No, that doesn't mean I want to change that fact.

Please don't send me religious items.

IT'S FLARE TIME - September 14, 2023

I am slowly getting the use of my arms back enough they won't throb all the time. I'm getting slowly back into things as this flare changed the use of my arms enough I have to learn my new limitations. And no, there is no more meds for me to try, so stop asking and/or telling me to try a new one. And no I can't take immunity boosters - learn what the hell an auto-immune condition is before retrying that suggestion.

Don't be a post mark gatekeeper.

I Am A Spoonie

If I am not online for a few days, a few weeks it is more then likely due to my Lupus and/or Rheumatoid Arthritis. Both are 'uncontrolled'. One minute I can be fine, the next I feel like I am going to die or my hands/arms refuse to work.

Hosting Swaps

I've started to host swaps. Here is a bit on how I will handle them.

Required Rating & Whatnot
You will need at least a 4.8 rating. No 3s or 1s within the last 6 months. If you have 3s or 1s within the last 6 months & want to join please message me! Sometimes new swappers will be welcomed without a rating.

Angeling Swaps
I'll angel any not received 3 months after the due date. Why 3 months? Because my mail service isn't that great & I know things can take a bit, so 3 months is quite enough time between the mail being slow & trying to get your partner to send.

Trouble Swappers & Weeding Them Out
I will remove trouble swappers before partners are assigned. If you think I removed you unfairly - message me & we can talk about it.

Future Deco Swaps I Host

Starting August 2023 most of the deco swap series I host will be held once a month.

Future Deco Swaps for those that like to plan ahead.

The swaps will be started by the 3rd of each month. You will have approximately 2 weeks to sign up. You will have until the last day of the month to send out.

You will always be able to make new decos books for any swap I host unless stated otherwise in the swap description.

  • New Deco Series - This swap will be for new deco books you make. They may be open themed or themed - depends on the time of year. These will remain open for all swappers, regardless of groups. They will be USA only. If enough interest is had, I will host an international swap.
  • Pick A Page - These will be for new, established, last signer, and homers. If there are to be specific themes or newly made deco books they will be held along side the current month. These will be held in the Deco Books ♥ group.
  • Color Series - These will be for new, established, & last signer decos. They will remain in the Deco Books ♥ group. If all goes to plan they will last the rest of 2023.
  • Monthly Themed Series - Starting August 2023 I will host a monthly themed swap for what the month is 'known' for. These will be for new, established, & last signers. These swaps will also be in the Deco Books ♥ group.
