Swaps 💌

~¤~ ~¤~ If you haven't received a swap from me in a reasonable amount of time, please contact me. I know USPS can and have made a lot of mistakes. I will gladly resend.😁 ~¤~ ~¤~ FYI: I have started taking photos of all the swaps I send. This can be helpful in doing a USPS missing mail search.

About Me

I love getting mail. All of it except for bills and loan offers. Those aren't fun or exciting at all. I love paper crafting and all things paper. Stationery, stickers, junk journals, ephemera, bookmarks, tags, etc. I'm currently in the process of making my first junk journal. (I have been for a while now. lol) I seem to be in a slump and need to find something to inspire me. I also like video games, reading, watching movies and TV, various types of music, shopping, sleeping, thrifting, baking and especially eating what I bake.

How do you tell someone is a crafter? By the amount of glue and glitter she has on her and the various colors of her fingertips. 😁

💞 I've seen a lot of people don't like Kawaii, gothic, butterflies, childish items, ice cream, Harry Potter, cartoon items, bookmarks, or puffy stickers. I love it all! Scratch and sniff stickers and puffy stickers remind me of my childhood, and as I'm getting older, I don't mind reminiscing. 😉 I prefer lace, girlie, floral 🌹, fairies, shabby chic, botanical, butterflies 🦋, dragonflies, pink, red ❤️, blues 💙, and neutral color items. I'm not really crazy about the color purple 💜, but I will accept items that are purple, just not a purple theme please. On the topic of dragonflies, I don't much care for dragons 🐉, though unicorns 🦄 and Pegasus are okay. Now gnomes... Gnomes need an entire paragraph all to themselves. 😁

I absolutely love gnomes!!! A fat little guy or gal with fuzzy hair poking out from his/her hat. What could be more cute? If I could have given birth to a baby gnome, I probably would have had kids. hahahaha! Anything with a gnome on it, I'm all for it. Send me a gnome or something with a gnome on it and you will have all the hearts in the world from me.

🎲GAMES🃏 I love Uno and never knew there are so many different types of Uno cards. Trivial Pursuit is another card game I like. I also love dice. I don't know why, but colorful or odd dice intrigue me. If anyone is up for a dice, Uno or Trivial Pursuit card swap, please message me. I love playing Trivial Pursuit with a variety of different cards.

😀STICKERS😀 I'm not picky. I like most everything. Puffy are great, but I know they add extra weight and thickness. Scratch and sniff are my most favorite in the world. I just ask no planner (I'm not that organized), teacher, anime, arcade or Disney stickers. I don't hate Disney, I quite like it, but I don't have a use for these stickers. Childish are okay as far as animals or toys or smiley faces. Even cartoon, unicorns, and mermaids are fine.

As far as horror and gothic things go, I'm not afraid of bloody and gory. I'm okay with scary 🎃HALLOWEEN🎃 things. Just no actual dead people. That's a bit creepy.

With 🎄CHRISTMAS🎄 approaching... I realize what the holiday is all about. I also realize it's extremely commercialized in the United States. I do not mind religious items for Christmas as long as they are Christian related. That doesn't mean I want a glittery candle with the Virgin Mary on it, but a religious Christmas card or stamp or something with shepherds or the Magi or a nativity is not going to upset me.

As far as ✝️BIBLICAL✝️, I'm not really fond of it, but I don't hate it. If you send me a scripture or quote from someone, I'm not going to be upset. If I sign up for a biblical related swap -- which probably will never happen -- I definitely don't mind.

📬STAMPS📬 Please, please, please no stamps on paper. I have a horde of stamps I need to try to get off the paper. You may Google ways to do this. There are a few. Some work better than others. On the other hand, no stamps so thin they only have one side. If the stamp is too thin its going to easily tear, I have no use for it. It most likely will tear when I try to take it out of the little envelope. And with that...no sticky backs! Please take some talcum powder and dust the backs. If the stamps are even a little bit sticky, they stick together and become a giant mess. This also tears those really delicate stamps with only one side. I realize stamps are hard to get off paper. Sometimes it doesn't work. Sometimes you have to forfeit the stamp. Try a few different ways and hope for the best. Thanks.

🦋DIE CUTS🌼 If you are sending die cuts, please, please, please put them in their own envelope and make sure it can stay flat. If they are fine strips of paper or have small points or bits of cardstock on them, they bend easily and get tangled. I will throw away a tangled mess of die cuts. It's not worth the frustration to try to separate them.

📬POSTCARDS📬 I will accept anything. Even Zazzle, ad cards, biblical, or homemade. I actually prefer homemade. If you take the time to make something to send to me, I am definitely not going to complain. I think it makes it just a wee bit more personal. If you are allowed a choice of sending the card blank or in an envelope, I prefer both of those. I like being able to use postcards, since they are very hard to find around here. Also, USPS likes to destroy the poor things. Envelopes help to protect your writing and artwork.

🗑️JUNK OR TRASH💩 I can't believe I have to note this, but please no magazine clippings, paper scraps or junk mail, etc. I don't mind memo notes, origami, or scrapbook papers. I don't want your used magazine pages or junk mail unless you upcycle it.

🚫NO FOOD!🚫 I'm not up for food item trades. I think they are just a bit odd. Candy, tea, coffee, crackers, and chocolate will just be thrown away. Please save your items and postage for someone who wants it. No tea, please.🍵 I like tea and coffee items, I just don't care to swap food. Tea, coffee, candy and chocolate themes are welcome.

I'm also not big on cosplay, anime or superheroes. Marvel and DC are okay, but I am just not too interested.

I've decided to make a change to this. I like bath & body 🛁, perfume, and makeup 💄, but I do not like dollar store items. A nail file (as long as it's not metal or an extreme grit - think black emery board) is fine.

I actually like dollar store lip balm. BALM, not gloss!!! The kind in the hard plastic tube with the little dial on the bottom or the EOS containers. NO CARMAX though! It reminds me of my high school days and someone I would rather not remember.

🚫I do not like dollar store makeup, lotions, hair products or soap.🚫

Hair items from the dollar store are okay, usually. Meaning scrunchies, hair ties, clips, brushes, combs.

I do not have a bath tub 🛁, but I can use bath bombs in a shower, though they aren't as fun to watch dissolve. Please make sure they are highly scented, otherwise I'm just dissolving Epsom salt and that's no fun, especially in the shower. Epsom salt packets are okay too. I can sprinkle it on the floor, but once again, scented only and NO LAVENDER or lilac scent. Ick! Rose, orange, citrus and the invigorating scents are perfectly fine.

Absolutely NO FACE MASKS! Those horrible paper things give me claustrophobia. I'm like the cat with cheese on his face. hahahaha! 😁

Thanks for understanding. 😊

Favorite Music

I prefer strange and loud rock music. The louder the better. I take my music with a bit of a sharp edge, but I can listen to most anything at least once. Some of my favorite artists are HIM, Shinedown, Rob Zombie, Disturbed, Metallica, Black Veil Brides, Five Finger Death Punch, Falling In Reverse.

Favorite Crafts

Junk journaling, card making, any paper craft, macramé, jewelry making.

Favorite Television

American Horror Story, True Blood, Breaking Bad, Orphan Black, Bates Motel, Big Sky, Good Girls, Young Sheldon, Ghosts, FBI, Animaniacs, Big City Greens.

I have started watching Harlan Coben's Shelter on Prime. I'm addicted. Jaden Michael is a cute kid.
