I'm a beach dweller. I can hear the ocean from every room in my house. The smell of honeysuckles and salt water is the most amazing smell in the world to me. It smells like home. I'm a doll maker. I taught myself how to crochet in Oct of 2011 and I love it so much. Im a gamer, a Digital Doodler (ipad 7. I doodled the ernie up there^ ), a strange kid, a cartoon watcher, i loathe laundry and I'd rather be camping than almost anything else Im supposed to be doing. I like historic towns. Love photography. I have an off sense of humor. I dont offend easy. I'm a little odd.

I have memory issues and tend to prattle on about nothing. I don't make a very good penpal, but I love to write. If you're in the USA and just feel like writing a rambling letter without a penpal obligation attached, I'm open to a private swap.

I live with my Fiance. He puts up with the bits of paper that get EVERYWHERE and hes pretty fantastic.

WE ARE AN ANIMAL FRIENDLY HOME! I share my home with a grumpy little budgie named Lady and a great little jackchi named Bugsy. Both rescues. I try my best to keep all dog hair and bird feathers out of any package, but you may get one or two strays.


Things I enjoy are:

  • Volkswagen. The Bus and Beetle are peppered into our home decor. I own a GTI. love anything with those themes. Obsessed with VW plaid prints. //
  • Creepy / Strange things. //
  • Creepy-cute things //
  • Reading [ tell me about your favorite book!] //
  • Harry Potter series [movies & books] //
  • Bioshock Series [ video game.Very art deco ] //
  • Photography //
  • The ocean //
  • Realistic skulls or bones. //
  • mermaids //
  • crows //
  • crochet //
  • cross stitch //
  • local legends and lore. Tell me about yours! //
  • realistic butterflies and moths //
  • drawing. //
  • hearing about you and your day! //

I love butterflies and moths. I currently own a common jay, tawny rajah ,great nawab, and an attacus atlas.

// Things I'm always thrilled to receive:

Unused USA Postage stamps in any amount [ yes, even one 1Β’ stamp! ]

Used postage stamps from anywhere - on or off paper.

flat stickers for journals/day planner. unusual stickers welcome.

ANYTHING mermaid related.

Anything realistic butterflies or bones.

washi tape of any length, size, and theme.

"EXTRA POINTS" if you happen to pass along Bioluminescent Life, Harry Potter, or Space themed postage stamps! [used is perfectly fine!]


PLEASE... NO GLITTER! If you have glitter on your hands from touching the object, please don't send it. I don't have a dedicated craft/swapping area so the glitter gets EVERYWHERE and drives me bonkers.

anything that smells of cigarette smoke.

puffy / reward / teacher/ kids stickers. I just never use them.

Cat hair. I'll understand if theres a few in the package, as I know cat hair does what it wants. Just, please, don't pack your entire cat. :]

NO perfume. We have a bird and things like perfume, candles and air freshener are not good for her.

Please don't send me anything related to religion.


I am understanding. If you're going to be late due to life, please let me know. Communication is key.

If you think I should have gotten your swap by now and I haven't rated or contacted you, please, message me! I mostly use swapbot on mobile and sometimes my ratings don't stick.

If you have not received my swap yet, please message me so we can get the mess sorted.

Comment: This swap was super fun! I really enjoyed it and actually I'll find some time to write back to you if you don't mind a digital handwritten pen pal. :) (Or swapping back and forth between on and off line when mail goes back to normal!)
