Hello :)

I recently got a new job that is taking up most of my time, so I am still here but not swapping as much as before.

about me

Hi there! I live in Nashville, Tennessee though I mostly grew up in Florida and have lived lots of different places. I was a middle school teacher for six years but left two years ago to pursue other things, like opening a vegan restaurant! One of my biggest hobbies is Muay Thai kickboxing. My current record is 8-3 and I've won two title belts. I am also an avid weightlifter and do yoga when I can find time. My best friend is also on this site - @eveyinorbit - and we make art together at nashpop.etsy.com

I'm really passionate about a lot of different things - from organic farming to animal rescue. I live with my husband and our menagerie of rescue animals -- two cats, two dogs, and a corn snake. I volunteer with two local animal rescues.


I am an avid reader and normally devour 100 or so books per year. I love live music and try to go to shows as often as possible. If "Trouble" wasn't already my middle name, then it would be "Wanderlust" as I love to travel and am always trying to plan my next trip. Besides working on different mail art projects, I knit, paint, draw, do pottery, do stained glass, carve blockprints, make zines, write (letters, short fiction, and poetry), sew, and quilt. I get hooked on learning new crafts very easily and am constantly bouncing from one project to the next.

I always love the chance to set up private swaps with people, so feel free to drop me a line if you are interested! =)

I took Spanish in college long, long ago and would really like to relearn it! If you speak Spanish and would be interested in writing letters back and forth, please get in touch with me!

njstauter rated for Small Altar Cloth on May 10, 2015
Comment: A beautiful, sacred piece. Thank you, and thank you also for the smoky crystal...it is stunning. I've been able to see a number of windows in the sides of some and want to spend time with a stronger light looking at their wisdom. It seems that it comes with a lot of pairs & interceptions. Ancient presence in it, so thank you for sharing.
Response: So glad you liked everything! My friend gave me a shoe box of those little crystals and it seemed a shame to not share them with others :) Thank you for the heart! <3

KateKintail rated for Whedonverse Crossword Puzzle on May 4, 2015
Comment: SO sorry for the late rating; I feel terrible for being so behind. Thanks for the crossword. Unfortunately, I'm not used to doing crosswords where spaces are part of the answer (usually they're excluded), and I was so eager to start on it I missed your note. Plus, the period in Mr. messed me up as well. So I made a complete mess of the puzzle. Yikes. But it was still fun. Thanks!
Response: So sorry about the issue with the spaces. My other partner used spaces but then blanked them out on the actual puzzle... I'll be sure to do that next time! Thank you for the heart.
heliogal rated for Beltane inspired Spell Bottle on May 3, 2015
Comment: LOVED your spell in a bottle! My family did your spell together yesterday when we celebrated Beltane. It was a great spell and we had so much fun dancing around our land/garden and tossing blessed soil onto our plants! We decided that we were going to include that soil blessing spell into all of our future Beltane rituals. Thank you so much for such a thoughtful swap!! <3 <3 <3
Response: Oh hooray, I'm so so glad to hear that it got to you in time for Beltane and that you all got to do the spell together. That sounds wonderful! Thank you for the heart <3
