About Me

Last updated: 8/28/12

I'm Hanna, 28 years old and live in Arizona.

My passion is for baking. I love to cook as well but baking is my calling. I love trying different things and creating weird flavors. I'm in process of mastering macarons. I operate a home bakery called Simply Sucré. You can find me on etsy.

You can find me usually swapping and giggling with my sister @MysticBayou She's my sister from a different mother. We share everything and anything and I just adore her. I can't wait til I'm her neighbor! I thank a certain coward for bringing us together.

On swapping


If you don't get your item, please contact me first. I'm prompt and honest but if something gets damaged or lost, I'd like a chance to make up for it first. I've been flaked many times now (some small, some bigger swaps) and I know how disappointing it is.

I'm open to private swaps no matter how small (mainly for wishlist items) so please don't hesitate to contact me.

If you send more than one week late with no PM, I will rate you a 3. If I see the postmark date is more than one week after you clicked sent, I will rate you a 3. I'm so tired of these people thinking its okay to send late with no communication or lie and click sent when it hasnt been.

Favorite Music

Jason Mraz and Within Temptation are my two favorite bands of all time.

I've been playing violin since I was 3 years old so music is a big part of my life. Justin's also a musician since early age.

I listen to pretty much all genre with exception of heavy metal, emo and country. I'm not a huge fan of all the new music nowadays as I feel they lack originality and well, they suck.

Some of my favorites, aside from the top two, are Prince, Lady Gaga, Billie Holiday, Metallica, Bad Religion, Big bad voodoo daddy, etc.

Favorite Books

I read a lot. I read everyday and finish at least 1 book a week. I normally read about 2 books at a time. A harder book and an easy one. I read absolutely everything from fiction to history. I guess the only two I don't have an interest in are science fiction and romance.

Some of my favorite authors are Christopher Moore, John Grisham, Jane Green, Alison Weir, Mitch Albom, Irvine Welsh, E.E. Cummings, etc.

I HATE Twilight. I hate it. Stephanie Meyer is a terrible author! Reading her books was torture in itself.

Favorite Movies

I love all movies from documentary to animation. I'm easy going like that haha.

My favorite actors are Christopher Walken, Eddie Izzard (his stand up is outstanding), Kevin Spacey, Jim Carrey, Angelina Jolie, Steve Carell, Marylin Monroe and Adam Sandler.

My favorite movies include The usual suspects, Suicide Kings, The Simpsons movie, Gentlemen prefer blondes, Roman Holiday, Ocean's 11 (the original with Sinatra, not that Pitt remake), Vanishing point, etc.

Favorite Television

My favorite shows are Deadliest Catch, anything on Shark week, The Simpsons, Family Guy, My name is Earl, Dexter, Law & Order SVU & CI, Monk, House, Gossip girl and Psych.

I absolutely HATE reality shows. I always have, always will. The worst reality show to me is American Idol.

Angels, Tags, etc.

I've never asked for an angel for flaked swaps or swaps that didn't meet requirement but I noticed its been happening more lately. 52 pages of archived swaps are quite a bit to go through so I won't be asking for angels for all my flaked swaps but have decided to start listing them. They will be particularly disappointing swaps. Thank you!

Thank you to my angels - @user2637 @terryf @mammadoo @kimbeewa @MysticBayou

Comment: Amazing swap! Sent very early ahead deadline set, which is a plus. I absolutely love everything in the swap especially since it's my first time ever receiving and seeing an ami in front of me, lol. I love them both, but have to admit hubby loves the Totoro ami. Would be willing to swap again in the future.
Comment: Thanks for all the goodies! I can't wait to play with it all!
Comment: What a great parcel to open - thank you so much, Hanna! Everything is completely awesome and I can't wait 'til I get some crafty play time to try it all out! :) Thank you for the flowers as well. ♥

Comment: Your very first set of tags ROCK! I loved the artwork and sentiments (perfectly sarcastic) and covet the pin-up image. (How much do I wish I owned that stamp???) Edit: I wrote this comment ages ago, but it was inadvertantly saved as "I do not wish to rate Hanna at this time". Rating of 5 + heart officially entered today. Sorry about that! :-( I'd swap with you any time, my friend... even if it is just the two of us!!!
Response: Stamp camp is where I got the Monroe stamp actually. I'm so glad you like them too!

Comment: I adore the monkey pouch -- he's up to no good with his monkeyshines! I appreciate the tags, too, and saw absolutely no imperfections. You are indeed too hard on yourself. I'm working on your sewn swap -- should be ready in a few hours. I hope you love it! :) Thank you, and hugs to you.

Thank you for the tapes and the heart.

TereDiane1954 on Sep 2, 2012:

I see that you are mastering macaroons. I've found that a half teaspoon of almond flavoring works wonders with the taste. And of course, melted chocolate drizzled over the tops after they're cooled!

Thanks so much for the link to the coupons!! :)
