About Me

(August 21, 2020 - Updated after 8 1/2 years lol)


August 2020

I'm in my 40's, no pets, non smoker. Very allergic to pets and smoke. Very allergic to tree nuts.

I love cats so much, they're one of my favorite animals.

I have a lot of health issues, but I don't sign up for swaps during bad health times. I have Lupus, ME/cfs, fibro, EDS, depression, severe anxiety, and I am multiple (DID). There's other things but those are the main ones I find people tend to either accept or shun me over!

I am agoraphobic. I am nervous about changing my address from my pobox to another, but since I am no longer able to go into town (for now, therapy in progress), it's either do that or do only e-swaps!

Since I was last on the site, I started treatment, rather changed treatment for my depression and anxiety and have improved a lot. Unfortunately the result was all of my hobbies sort of went away. I am slowly regaining them.

I'll list the ones I do first, then the ones I'm still working to regain ability to do without anxiety and panic:

Gaming Writing Watercolor painting Drawing Photography Art journalling (It's more my art therapy journal) Animal Crossing (ok it's gaming but deserves mention) Logic Puzzles on the Switch/PC

I lost ability for now for: Crochet Sewing (other than masks when neighbors needed) Reading books Embroidery Bookbinding Decoupage

I still love fountain pens (just don't know where all mine went, one box... where at?), steampunk, Holmes, Poirot, cats, stuffies (plush toys), Squishables, Dove Promises chocolate (specific flavors due to tree nut allergy), humming birds.

Last profile edit, removed all but the first part:

February 2012, wow... long time away!

I haven't swapped in ages! After I fulfilled the obligations I had signed up for (over a year ago was my last swap!) I had to take a break due to health problems.

I have no plans of ever really growing up. :)

(Above was part of my profile edit before I returned in August 2020, keeping it because it's just amazing to me I was away so long!)

Favorite Crafts

Beginner in all these: Watercolors (both digital w/ Rebelle3, traditional) Drawing Art journals Zines

I really like reading about crafts, watching yt videos, but as said above, I've yet to regain my old ones back.

Postcards and PenPals

I currently do not swap postcards.

I'm not actively seeking a penpal, but I'm also not opposed to having a penpal. Prefer e-mail, getting to the post office is not easy for me right now.

Some favorites!

Cats Possums (North American) Butterflies Corgi

(will fill out more later) Like colors foods movies etc... what would you like to know?


Cozy mysteries Discworld Fantasy Craft books Japanese craft books/cook books Workbasket magazine Annie's Crochet magazine Vintage craft books/printings


Most scented candles/soaps Smoke/smokey items animals and pets (no allergy pill helps) incense perfumed items musty smelling books/items chamomile teas (some teas sneak it in!) Tree nuts

Note Although I am allergic to animals, it's all right if you're a pet owner and do a swap with me.

If the item is machine washable and you have pets, or something I can wipe down, that's okay! Just please tell me so I'll know!

Other Hobbies

Collecting bento things. Boxes, cutesy bits, chopsticks, molds for rice or eggs, books, etc.

Japanese foods! (I go between JapanCrate and UmaiCrate for candy and noodles)

Japanese cute stuff!

I do Nanowrimo every year

Animal Crossing (currently New Horizons) Pokemon Gaming (rpg, logic, jrpg, cute, farming) Stardew Story of Seasons (Harvest Moon) A Short Hike


I Collect Stuff!

Annie's Attic crochet magazines

Books (Vintage craft books and booklets, children's books especially ones about cats, older Golden Books, mysteries, Terry Pratchett novels)

Bento boxes and supplies

Cat themed anything!


violent themes vampire novels halloween themes dystopian/apocalyptic themes (2020's enough!) crickets okra

ISBN ISBN404853744X

This is like the story of the 3 bears...=laugh= That version of the image is too small. But I discovered that if you click on "View all," you'll be able to see the large one in full. Apologies again for using your profile as my lab for experiments...=laugh=


FiWebster on Nov 19, 2010:

Hi Stacey! I'm your pen pal for the Fountain Pen Pal swap, and II've been really enjoying reading your profile. We have some cool things in common--like the love of cats.

In my previous comment, such as it was, I was using your profile as a guinea pig for learning how to insert images. I didn't realize I wouldn't be be able to delete the comment, if I screwed up! I'm sorry--obviously that one was way too big. I'll try again, below.

--looking forward to writing to you,
