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’m very random & have intentions to try everything! I buy all the supplies, then before even starting, I’m on to the next idea! Lol. I want to try embroidery, punch needle, encaustic wax, macrame, found objects mixed media… I used to be very much into photography, but haven't really done it in a while. I make dream catchers & know how to sew. I’ve made gnomes. I like upcycling: making skirts from old t-shirts. I dabble in ATCs, glue books, journal making, art journals, junk journals, bullet journaling, & smash books.
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 just found out about Scandinavian GNOMES/Tomte/Nisse! Looove them!!
Postcards: I'm finding that I quite like touristy cards. (But, I don’t really have use for blank ones from random places.) Show me a piece of your area and write a little note! 💜 (Not so into the map cards.) I do like handmade cards and your art!

I love reading & work in a public library. Always have 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. Lately I’ve been finding some wonderful Adult Fiction, though. 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; The Good Sister by Sally Hepworth; Casquette Girls by Alys Arden; Magic Lessons by Alice Hoffman; Kasie West, Amy Plum, Cynthia Hand…
