February 2023: I am taking a hiatus from swapbot for an indefinite amount of time. Hey there, I’m Adriana! I'm 28 and I live with my boyfriend of 5 years and our two perfect cats, Cooper and Bagels. I'm a 20+ year resident of Florida and currently live in Clearwater, famed for its beaches and the creepy cult that took over our downtown area haha. I've almost graduated from my Public Policy and Administration bachelors program but the pandemic made me realize I wanted to slow down and really work with what I love and value. Then I figured out that includes a lot, so now I'm just allowing myself to learn and explore and just do what I want to do! And basically, that just means hanging out with a lot of plants and dirt :)
I really only do paper crafting and mail art. I love spending time on making an interesting and eye catching envelope when I can and often do so even when the swap doesn’t call for it, because that’s half the fun for me! I love collages but I use everything from washi and stickers to recycled bits of ephemera and paints. I wouldn’t call myself a talented artist, but I put a lot of love and effort into my work and I think it results in something pretty cool :) I don’t have much of a need for supplies for other art forms like knitting or jewelry making- my creativity is certainly a very 2D kind. However if you have a special bit of ribbon, twine, or a stunning bead you’d like to share just for it’s individual beauty, I can appreciate that :) I’ve received such odd surprises that have become treasured parts of my snail mail collection, I’ll appreciate anything sent with love!
Still a work in progress!

However, I personally will not break this rule when sending to others in such swaps unless I see a similar note in your profile. I love it, some don’t, and that’s totally cool!), Tea (No fruity flavors please!),
W- Woodland imagery, Wildflowers, Washi, Witches
Y- Yule/ Christmas ( I was raised celebrating Christmas and the holiday means a lot to me, but as an adult I’ve come to celebrate the season as Yule instead. I love Christmas greetings too, and can appreciate a religious card if that is how you celebrate. Either way, it’s the happiest season of all :), Yellowstone (and the Tetons!), Yellow
I’m Not Such A Fan Of:
Fandoms/ Disney ( I love the animated movies, but I’m not interested in any disney related ephemera or stickers)
Stickers for kids, reward stickers, etc
Touristy postcards (I’ve had exceptions of course :)

I got my RR traveling postcard #61, back today, thank you for sending it home to me. It did some traveling, didn't it?
I was delighted to hear you enjoyed the seed swap!! I think I’ll do another, because it really was so much fun to share seeds with others who love them too. 👍🏼👍🏼
