About Me

My name is Bren- Iā€™m a part-time political consultant and part-time personal trainer/yoga teacher/wellness coach focused on fitness for all, mental health, work/life balance, and self-improvement. I live in Phoenix, Arizona with my partner, two cat children, too many aquariums, and a jungle of house plants.

I love handmaking things and I love using swaps to push me to create new projects. I want your "heart" so let me know if you do not like what I sent and I will resend the swap!

Usually, I put swaps in the mail the first or second day after receiving assignments, so if you have not received my envelope, let me know! I also weigh my envelopes before I send them, but in case there's ever postage due on delivery, let me know so I can make it right!

I'm really big on reusing, regifting, and upcycling! I'm never offended if you pass on items I send if they aren't your style, if you reuse packaging, or anything like that. I hope you don't mind if I do the same!

I also keep buying the small denomination stamps that you can only get in large rolls. If you ever want some, just shoot me a message, I'm happy to send a bunch! Right now I have the 2-cent lemon stamps and the 1-cent bobcat stamps!

Comment: Thank you for sharing! I also agree that cats are the best! And I do think it is sad that now school is about passing and not learning. A degree is a degree! I can go on a tangent about that! Also, thank you for the goodies šŸ˜Š

I just noticed that I forgot to thank you for your really cool response to my pen pal swap! I honestly didn't expect anyone to write back, so I was really excited to receive it. :) I appreciate how much time you took with it and it definitely put a smile on my face. I'm working on this long journal project that's a lot of writing that I've owed someone forever, so I'm on here doing art swaps and short notecard swaps only until I finish, BUT I will definitely be writing you back once I have that out! Sorry for the slight delay!
