About Me

*UPDATED 12/25/2018 I am now 32 years old, living with my boyfriend and we have a 1 year old daughter. I took a break from swapbot after having to move out of my family's house and learning to live on my own. I moved around from place to place for about 2 years until I met my boyfriend and we settled down. I want to get back into swapbot now that I am (for the most part) a stay at home mom. I used to have lots and lots of ephemera, stickers, etc.but had to let a lot of stuff go as I moved around a few years back. I want to start building my collection again because I like to work on my journals when I work on weekends. I am still a caregiver for elderly/disabled adults. I am trying to make right on past swaps where I received negative ratings in the past, but some of the members are not available anymore. I'm excited to get back to swapping!

I am 30 years old, no kids, work as a caregiver and I love my life! I love making new friends online because I am always working, so i don't have time to make real life friends. Lol. Swap bot is one of the many ways I stay "sane" by interacting with people.

I love to collect journals,memo sheets, STICKERS or anything related to the following: koalas,snails,hedgehogs, stars,rainbows,unicorns, desserts, cats, dogs, ducks,small rodents, KAWAII characters, Lisa Frank, penguins, sea creatures, starfish, jellyfish, animals in costumes,seahhorse,dolphins,mermaids, skeletons,planets.... (...I'll continue this later.lol), colorful writing instruments like markers and pens and gel pens. I love notes written in gel pen on black paper.

I love kawaii stationary. Hello Kitty is cute,but not one of my favorites.I'm more of a Twin Stars fan, but I also love to collect memo sheets with animals and tasty looking desserts. lol. I use lots of memo sheets of all sizes,I use them for my "one quote a day journal". A different quote on each memo sheet :)

I like lots of color, especially neon and glitter,but i'm also fascinated with images the solar system and darker things such as skeletons and aliens. I like pictures of anatomy, especially anatomical hearts. Anything Halloween themed is usually fun for me. I love reading and watching anything on the paranormal, urban legends, anything "tabboo". I studied psychology in college, I love to study the mind of serial killers (weird I know) but I also like to study relationships ( I'm an introvert).

I would one day like to visit the following places and would love to see these these on mail art: Norway (the northern lights ), Alaska, and Australia

Favorite Music

Rob Zombie

Takin Back Sunday

Saves the Day

Alkaline Trio



Third Eye Blind

Strung Out

The Yah Yah Yahs

The killers




Savage Garden

Sometimes "favorite songs" tell more about someone's personality rather than "artist". Right now I am loving:

Donna Lewis- I love you always forever

Bloc Party- Like Eating Glass ( remix album version)

Flo Rida- Sometimes I get a Feeling

Bruno Mars- It will rain

Favorite Crafts


I AM CURRENTLY OBSESSED WITH PLANNERS, SMASH/ JUNK JOURNALS AND ALTERED COMPOSITION BOOKS. I am currently wishing for items that are kind of "dark themed" : garbage Pail Kids! Lol, halloween, vintage, black and white, tim burton, psychological, paranormal, zombies, vampires, big foot, lochness monster, trolls, etc, Anything "sticky" such as labels, stickers, post its. I am also OBSESSED with using old 35mm camera NEGATIVES for my Journals. I hope you know what I mean. Lol. Anything in that kind of theme would be very appreciated right now. I have a lot of cute whimsical stuff, need to balance it out with darker themed items. Lol.

Collages made out of Magazine cut outs

Mail Art


Poetry and prose

I'm new to making ATC's and collages, so any scraps and stuff you would consider "junk" would probably be useful for me. I collect a lot of paper and ephemera and its actually quite embarrassing how much stuff I like to collect and hoard

Favorite Books

Einstein's Dreams- by Alan Lightman

Now a days I am reading anything motivational, inspirational, business. I also listen to audio programs and motivational videos on YouTube when I am in my car.

If you have any book or audio recommendations, send them my way :)

Favorite Television

Criminal Minds

Without a Trace

Tales from the Crypt!

National Geographic: Tabboo, Locked up Abroad

Robot Chicken

Planet Earth

Cosmos on FOX (2014)

Animal Cops

Beyond Belief { when it was still airing, lol }

Comment: Contacted multiple times. Was told my swap was on the way, however I don't think it was ever mailed out. Will be more than happy to change to a three if I ever receive this swap. Communication is key, and I can overlook a lot if my partner actually talks to me.

Comment: Your pet story was so heart-wrenching and heart-warming at the same time. I was once, years ago, in a relationship, and the best thing to do is get out. I'm so glad you had your pups to help. They are really sweet. I also once had a boy pup who couldn't wait for the kids to have the door open just a second too long. Many times, my husband and I were out trying to surround him and capture him. We'd get so close and he'd take off again. But he did eventually listen to my husband - I guess it was that deeper voice. And he also eventually stopped taking off like that as he got a little older. But it would scare me to death when he was out like that. Thanks for sharing!

Hi, I sent you an email twice for the 'Share Your Pets - Email swap' and haven't been rated, or my swap message answered. Did you receive my email? xx

Got your letter today! Will write back soon! :)

Oh Claudia! What a great surprise it was to find your beautiful colorful envie in my mailbox today-not for a swap but Just Because. I LOVE random acts of kindness like this. I absolutely adore every little bit you packaged up for me. Especially the Hello Kitty envie and pink sticker. Can't wait to get them glued down onto some mail art. You are a Sweetheart! I will try to write back soon, I promise!
