About Me

April 2024: Taking a break for a few months, will pick up all my series when I come back. I need some time between now and 4th of July to get organized. I canceled my last 4 swaps because I JUST bought a sheet of PC stamps and can't find them. I will host those when I get back!

If you don't receive something from me, or the dates stamped are not what I have told you, please PM me before rating, I will resend! I'm in a new RV park and now I'm not sure what time they pick up the mail as I don't live near the USPS pickup point. It is in the swap etiquette that you contact your partner and the host before rating a 1. If you ever don't receive a swap from me in a timely manner and I haven't messaged you, let me know and I will resend immediately!!!!

๐Ÿ’Œ 2024 biggest needs: Forever stamps, postcards and washi tape! ๐ŸŒ

๐Ÿฅณ I'm 36, living in my RV that my parents and I converted into a tiny house! I've been in it since June of '21.๐Ÿ’ซ

๐Ÿ™ Christian (not judgemental, so please give me the same courtesy ๐Ÿ’•). WITH THAT SAID...I do not swap with people in Pagan/witchcraft groups within my own swaps that I host, or if anything on your profile indicates you're into the occult. I do not want it in my home just as some of you don't want religious items in yours.

๐Ÿฆฎ๐Ÿ˜ป Animal lover, former LVT, equestrian and animal rehabber ๐Ÿฆ

Currently have 2 cats, Cinna who is my heart and Maverick, my eyeless kitten whose the cutest thing EVER! My service dog, Ruger, who is my lifeline and constant companion. ๐Ÿฆฎ Any cat toys that make sounds are excellent stocking stuffers to send me since Maverick is blind! Ruger is allergic to everything, so no treats. Cinna loves any crunchy treats. ๐Ÿค—

๐Ÿฆ“ Medical Zebra ๐Ÿฆ“ I have POTS, Fibro, CFS, degenerative disc/joint/bone disease, etc etc etc.

๐Ÿ’ฅALWAYS, ALWAYS in need of blank stamps (postcard, regular, extra ounce), the ones you guys send me are what keeps me swapping due to being on such a tight budget on disability. ๐Ÿ’Œ

Wishlist

Unused postage stamps are my #1 needed item. It's so helpful when I get them! I'm on disability and have a budget down to the penny and I swap thanks to everyone that sends stamps with their swaps. โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

I would LOVE ANY uncirculated Queen Elizabeth stamps or ones that haven't been marked too much!!! I'm making jewelry from them! Same with circulated coins!

Anything service dog related! Patches from Etsy that are seasonal are ALWAYS fun and super welcome. We LOVE doggie bandanas as we have an Instagram and need to start doing photoshoots! If you'd like to order something for Ruger, give me a price range and I'll let you know what we currently need!

Anything Top Gun, Paddington, The Muppets, Doctor Who, Brambly Hedge, Christmas related!

Autum, Winter, and Christmas themed washi!

Anything Alice in Wonderland themed! Especially John Tenniel illustrated!

Postcards/stickers/ephemera with campers or tiny houses on them!

Alphonse Mucha style art.

Ireland & Scotland related items!! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ

RV related stuff.

Dislikes

NO THANK YOU to all the following: Horror/demonic/satanism/witchcraft/new age/ pagan/cult/skulls/death imagery/macabre/crime/crystals/Harry Potter/LOTR stuff/reiki, anything of the sort.

Anything anti-religious.

Any circuses that use exotic animals. I hate the forcing of endangered animals to perform

Adult cartoons likeArcher, Rick and Morty, South Park, etc. I do like The Simpsons from time to time though.

Not an anime fan, fine with Kawaii though.

PLEASE DO NOT SEND-Allergies

If you are a smoker, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know before you send a swap, if you want to just take a photo of it, I will rate a 5! I'm HIGHLY allergic to cigarette smoke (can send me to the ER or leave me bed bound for days).

Highly alllergic to any sugar other than stevia and sucralose. Carbs are a huge no no for me too. ๐Ÿ˜ž I'm on a very strict carnivore diet due to my POTS, autoimmune diseases, and other health problems and it works wonders for me personally. With that said, if you live in the UK and send a bag of Thornton's Toffee for a swap, I will make myself sick, for that and ONLY that. ๐Ÿคฃ

I'm also not allowed to have caffeine, but can have it in small amounts like tea, black teas are fine as well, I just don't drink them on flare days! ๐Ÿซ–๐Ÿต

It's 1ยฐC over here right now - after a week of -4ยฐC. And starting Friday it will not rise above 0ยฐC for the near future. I never realized that Christmas time =/ snow around the world when my friend went to Australia for a year when I was 14 and she told me about freezing candles to at least put one on. December equals cold and snowy in my brain ^^
