About Me

MY 1 RATING WAS NOT DESERVED! @Lucybelle rated me 1 out of spite for rating her a 3 for unmet swap requirements and sending late. She has 11 ONES and is now partially suspended. I don't know how to fix my rating, and am very saddened to see my rating go down unfairly :(

Introducing myself, Lyss! Self-proclaimed witch with neon green hair 💚 Please do not think this affects anything! We are not evil, we are ordinary kind people here to live in peace. I am very respectful and celebratory of other's diversity and simply ask that you do not mis-judge me because my beliefs may be different from yours.

I adore hand drawn and hand painted cards, ATCs, bookmarks, pendants etc. I like everything from pastel and neons to gothic/dark. I really enjoy victorian goth aesthetics! I dont wear earrings but adore necklace pendants, rings (although its hard sometimes finding something that fits a 4.5/5) or bracelets! I love crystals, irredescent beads, semi-precious gem beads, anything creepy cute or weird, "fairy-core" or witch themed (just not pirate-y skull and crossbones)

🌷 Important about me 🌷

I just experienced the loss of my wonderful grandmother, its been very tough for me so i am really in need of positive and healing energy right now. I established deeper connections with crystals immediately since. Im beginning to step into the realm of paganism so i would adore any swap materials regarding that! Ive been learning to channel my energy greatly and am currently really into Archangel oracle cards. I have my alter set up for Raphael 💚 I am looking to get a rune set in the future!

I was raised in a house where my mother would always use her hoodoo + root worker knowledge for protection, this has made me adore doing hoodoo root work as well- there are so many wonderful herbs that are unheard of by many. Due to this i get.. bored.. with magickal things that are too simplistic.

I have always enjoyed herbalism and all of the wonders botanicals etc. can do for your health and they have helped me greatly. so i figured its time to dive deeper into practices :-) i am passionate about all positive and green witch things! I love magical mail! I stay away from black magick due to lack of knowledge of things that can harmfully backfire, but am always interested in spells etc for good intention, protection, and so on

I always love doing private swaps from different countries and items of their origin, never hesitate to reach out if you have any interest! I love collecting touristy stickers. I'm also always open to swaps for those willing to heavily invest time into. I've been getting quite a bit of bland, minimal, thrown together mail :( so lets bring some joy to each others mailboxes! Happy swapping!!

Flavor Preferences

For any swaps regarding teas, chocolates etc. i decided to add this in! I am not too picky and like trying new things :-) and i LOVE honey of all flavors!

Dislikes: white chocolate, caramel, mango, passionfruit, green teas, mixed berry flavor & blackberry

Quick Facts About Me

  • I have a 6 yr old rescue named Cujo (which is ironic because he's the biggest goofiest lovebug), a 6 month old puppy Favi, and two tubby cats named Boogs & Milk
  • Im always watching true crime shows as a go to
  • My favorite hobby is taking (and collecting) polaroid photos! I have a huge Van Gogh tapestry with polaroids over-laying it as my collection grows
  • I've always loved art. Ive recently started getting back into super time investing ATCs, & I adore the handcrafted work of others!

Scent Preferences

When it comes to incense, perfume roll-ons or sprays i dont enjoy anything powdery floral! i like a more crisp fresh floral, i love the true scent of a flowers petal. For example i LOVE a true gardenia scent! But dislike a powdery rose smell

my absolute favorite scent is BENZOIN, it is quite hard to find where i am :(

patchouli is tricky, i find i love some but noticed darker patchouli just smells like wet dirt and moss to me.. eek!

Other likes: nag champa, vanilla, sweet+smokey scents or sweet+spicy scents, fruity+sensual scents

Other Dislikes: ylang ylang, citrus scents like mandarin orange or grapefruit, honeydew melon, mossy scents

Dislikes

  • no anime, manga, or cartoon-y type things
  • Kid items. i dread receiving reward stickers, and things like toy story, elmo, etc.. i do not have kids and have no interest in kiddy things!
  • nothing religious or political, respectfully. With the exception of pagan related items or other magickal elements
  • nothing regarding certain fan bases. Examples: star wars, Harry Potter, Disney etc.
  • dragons
  • stereo-typical witch themed items. You know what im talking about.. the green old Halloween witch with that hat and broom!

Wishlist

  • alter items! i have a gorgeous chrome chalice i keep my sage in and i love adding new things. Im in need of an alter cloth!

Piping Plover

This is one of our Endangered Birds, the Piping Plover. They like to nest in the reeds on our beaches. They are so cute! We have warning signs up over the southern coastline to make sure no one disturbs them during the breeding season. Look at this chick with a black band; about 2 weeks old. Piping plover Chick

Totally agree regarding the number 1 rating....don't let it phase you... You are an excellent swapper. Some people are just never happy and love drama :-)

LavenderSprinkles on Apr 6, 2021:

You do not deserve that 1 rating. You are a great swapper. Sorry about that dear.
