First off, I love doing these swaps! I get super excited, will NOT flake, and will always rate. If you do not receive something from me, PLEASE let me know so I can resend before just giving a low rating. Mail arrives late/gets lost sometimes... I'm very grateful to those who share with me. It's fun to connect with people from all over the world!
I'm a 41 year old female introvert & have the mind/sense of humor of a 13 year old boy... I have an emo/witchy teenaged daughter that is French/English bilingual. I'm from New Orleans, LA, USA, but wish I lived in the mountains. People call me a hippie. I have a soft heart, love animals, & am an advocate for the environment. I practice yoga, meditation, & learned Reiki. I make my own homeopathic/natural cleaning products. People also say I'm "dark" since I like everything in black and love cemeteries. (Perhaps because I'm from New Orleans...) I've been a vegetarian since I was 10 & am vegan now. Traveling is the best & I wish I could do it more often. I'm nostalgic, keep journals, take lots of pictures. Reading & Internet are my favorite pastimes, especially when my insomnia kicks in. I'm always star-gazing; they're mesmerizing! Halloween is my favorite holiday.
I have a cello (but I suck at it!)
In case clothing is involved--I'm 5'7"/67 inches/170cm, slender, usually wear medium, ring size 5, shoe size 8.5.
I want to be more crafty! Even though I love creating art/crafts, I get intimidated. I learn all I can about the techniques & look at a million examples, but never actually try. This site has me so excited again to learn new techniques I’ve been interested in or haven’t heard of before! Like I’m seriously forgetting to eat & sleep, because I can’t stop searching through the swaps & learning about everything! I’m giddy!! 😄 I used to be very much into photography & altered art, but haven't really done any of it in a while. I make dream catchers & know how to sew. Lately, I've been wanting to do upcycled crafting like making skirts from old t-shirts or bookmarks from packaging that's not recyclable. Macrame is something I'd like to learn. Art journals, junk journals, bullet journaling, & smash books are also on my list to try. I bought supplies to make those gnomes/tomtes!
Omg, Swap-bot deleted my whole loooong Likes section!! Starting from scratch.
I LOVE GLITTER & sparkles! Never enough. On everything!
FEATHERS (real)- I collect them. They're my symbol of hope/faith.
MOUNTAINS (snow-capped!) touch my soul! I will live in the Rockies someday!
Definitely into the hippie/ boho, crunchy, "Peace, Love & Light". I have a crystal/gemstone collection.
Astronomy- I'm always stargazing; they're mesmerizing! Favorites are Arcturus & Capella.
COWS are my favorite animal. I love most animals, especially baby ones. And with crowns or flower crowns.
Halloween/Samhain is my favorite day. (Just nothing gory or with mean, ugly, green witches.)
Willow tree: Seriously, when I die, I want to be put in one of those bio urns and I will be this tree!
Anything with feathers, mushrooms, ghosts...is adorable.

I love reading & work in a public library. Always a book in my bed, a stack on my desk, & hundreds to be read (and a constantly growing list)!!
I tend to gravitate to YA books. The plot lines seem more creative. I enjoy lighthearted, funny, and romantic stories. During quarantine, audiobooks became a must, as I can multitask while still “reading”.
Some recent picks I’d give 5 stars: Anything by Colleen Hoover & Taylor Jenkins Reid; The Brilliant Life of Eudora Honeysett by Annie Lyons; The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo & Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid; Date Me, Bryson Keller by Kevin van Whye; Casquette Girls by Alys Arden; Magic Lessons by Alice Hoffman; Kasie West, Amy Plum, Cynthia Hand…
