About Me

** Hi Everyone! We're finally settled in our new home in the wild and I mean wild west! Its been wonderful so far! Now on with swapping ;)**

*I have always loved mail but after joining swap bot I love it even more! Thank you wonderful swappers! :D

My name is Michelle, but my friends call me Mushy. I'm originally from Ft.Lauderdale, Florida but currently live in Texas where my husband is stationed at the time being. I am a stay at home mommy who enjoys crafting, decor, seasons, packaging and decorating. I've recently started an Etsy shop (sequins , Packaging & Kawaii). https://www.etsy.com/shop/Mushypinkstrawberryz It's my mini part time job since I'm home with my little guy.

I love decorating the house for each season or holiday. My favorite season is fall. I lived in New England (Boston) for 6 years and still dream of those crisp fall days but I am still a South Floridan girl at heart :)

I favor Kawaii swapping but I am very much into other things as well. Please do not think I only own Kawaii type items. I am big on crafting in general :) If a swap does not call for Kawaii I will not send Kawaii, lol.

"My love for crafting is endless"


Please note I am grateful for anything I receive but these items do not follow under my interests.

Please no type of religious quotes, references, or materials.

I do NOT drink tea. I know this is a huge thing on swap-bot! Sorry and no pun intended lol! I find it crazy people still send it to me lol

Please no paper napkins or bookmarks (I make my own bookmarks so I have plenty) PLEASE no cut out stickers. They drive me crazy to organize and I'm huge on organizing.

I do not collect/craft ATC's/Friendship books. They are darling but not for me.

No real babies or animals, especially with Kawaii.

No dark, creepy, goth-like items. I am a pretty whimsical airy person who enjoys cute things.

I prefer pastels to dark colors.

I have soooo many notecards I cant even possibly use them with in my life time so please no more I beg of you lol (unless they are maybe related to Halloween or Fall) I run out of those!

Swap bot etiquette - Please do not send garbage/used items. This does not fall under "vintage". This is when someone sends me advertisements for Jiffy Lube and consider it paper ephemera :/ I will send my items in the condition I would like to receive. I put 110% into my swaps. I always review my partners profile! It's a common courtesy :)

Things I would love to receive

Anything with girlie delicate bow ribbon designs

Wood mounted stamps - I do not mind $1 bin ones from Michael's or Joann's

Current color obsessions: Rose Gold, Mint, Lavender and anything pastel.

Souvenir or local shopper tote bags

I would LOVE if you added your FAVORITE crock pot recipe or holiday tradition/recipe to our swap. Something family/kid friendly.

Anything related to Susan Branch or Beatrix Potter (I adore them both)

Useful/decorative items for kitchen (I love holiday/ pretty dish towels/pot holders or anything related in that way) Think cottage, farm house or even primitive. Ive been restoring furniture! I love holiday silicon spatulas too!

Recipe cards, Project life cards (for pocket letters) or anything for mail art (I really love vintage holiday die cut themes)

Flat buttons (I use them for tons of crafts with my tot) We love colored and holiday ones to make our projects fun!

Washi/Deco Tape

Fun socks US Size 9-11 (I'm tall, lol)

Anything Recollections Line (Love it!)

Bakers twine, sequins, French doilies

Southern Living books or Magazines

I love to bake cookies, muffins, or cupcakes so anything related or useful

I enjoy swaps that involve envelope decorating so anything related.

Valentines, fall & Christmas & Hanukkah - Honestly I love an excuse to celebrate ANY festive holiday!

Books Related to interests or vintage cookbooks (I love the stories behind them!)

Primitive items

Target Dollar Spot

Crayola anything for my tot. We love to paint and color daily. I'm on a never ending quest for these type of things lol

I love to organize my home and work area so anything you think might help would be appreciated.

Address Labels

I love bakers twine for packaging up pretty thangs

Baking Recipe books or Christmas cookbooks (new and old!) I've found older books are amazing.

Fun Sandwich/Cookie Cutters for boys

Cute Versatile Packaging/Bags (Gift, Paper, Treats, Cello)

New Forever stamps (I'm so lazy when it comes to actually going INSIDE the post office lol)

My toddler son who's 3 is currently obsessed with Disney Cars, Power Rangers and Spider-Man or batman. Anything related to those themes are fab!

Kawaii Swapping Group (Only)

Floral prints or patterns on memo pads or flakes

Favorite Characters at the moment: Cinnamoroll, Little Twin Stars, Twinkle Friends, Candy Twins, Gingerbread houses, fairy tales, and sweets, bunnies, cupcakes, cake and candies

I 💕pastel colored lines

I especially love miniature memos to stick in snail mail

Shabby chic lettersets

Deco tape/Washi- I love anything floral or girlie! Lace, Dots, Ribbon, holidays, etc)

Pastels, soft looking kawaii, delicate bunnies and rainbow themes. Pastel version of Sentimental.

Favorite Sanrio is Cinnamoroll & Little Twin Stars


Bento related items for boo

Favorite Crafts

Whimsical gift wraps, mail art, packaging, envelopes, gift boxes, card making, and stamping. Most paper crafts in general.
