About Me

4/17/22 - Still in the process of moving and living in an empty house awaiting furniture (maybe sometime this summer)! Yay pandemic chain-of-supply issues! Still not swapping much and miss it!

Random things about me:

  • Native Californian; reluctant Utahn
  • Dislike winter
  • Drawn to the whimsical
  • Love all things paper
  • Like to wrap presents
  • Prefer nonfiction
  • Puppy paws and puppy breath are the best smells (yay for Frito Feet)
  • Like to make cards
  • Like most colors
  • Am glad our peach orchard is getting smaller

How I Swap

I rate according to the quality of the swap. I am easygoing and not stingy with 5s and hearts if I feel there is effort put into the swap. I do not expect extras.

If I get you as a partner, I will read your profile, look at your Flickr, Etsy, or anything else on SB in order to get a sense of your likes, dislikes, and style. I will put my best effort into swapping something I think you will love. I usually send little extras, but expect you to rate only on the quality of the swap itself.

I expect (and will give in return) timely communication and ratings.

I do not lightly rate someone down. I consider myself to be understanding and kind. However, if I feel that someone has egregiously taken advantage of that understanding nature, I will rate accordingly.

Things I Love/Hoard

Pretty wrapping supplies

Recipes using fresh peaches

Embroidery Floss

Paper stuff

Vintage paper stuff

New paper stuff

Crepe paper, kraft paper, manila paper, copy paper, tissue paper, toilet paper (!), cardboard, chipboard .... and the list goes on.

I love licorice pastels (but not so much plain black licorice)

I love chocolate with nuts (but not so much chocolate without nuts)

I like most everything and every flavor of everything!!!

Comment: OMG!!!!! I can not believe all the amazing crafting goodies in this box! Paper upon paper and none that I have ever had. Some I had never seen before! Like the shimmer sheets! One made the cutest mermaid pocket for my great grand daughter’s mini journal I’m making her. Used my mermaid scales embossing folder in it. So so cute! And Washi out the wazoooo lol the tiny boxes of stickers, love them all. Birds & bunnies are my favorite. The watercolor paper notebook is great. I think I have about 6 pages in mine that size. Every single thing in the box will be used. I thank you from the bottom of my ❤️. It’s like winning the craft lottery. You’re so kind & generous with your giveaways. This definitely deserves more than one 5 & ❤️!

Thank you for your kind RAK of the most, well-made, lovely lined envelopes I've ever received. I adore them. ♥ The postage coordinates beautifully with your designs, and you even included 3 types of postage I've never seen before! I will definitely share the love with some very pretty happy mail thanks to you. I apologize for the delay in extending my gratitude as I was in hospital then on bed rest and haven't been online . Please know that your act of kindness absolutely brightened my day. ♥

P.S. Such a cute Panda hug card!

shirleyinCA on May 11, 2022:

Stunning envelopes! Many thanks for all these lovely envies - even some with gorgeous classy liners- you made for your kind CPG RAK. I will use some for mailings to my daughter because she will enjoy their beauty and then return them to me so I can store bits and bobs in them - thus getting to both mail and keep them! May I ask what brand envelope making device you use? I'm hoping to buy one. Thank you again for your generosity.
