About Me

I am super new to this, so my profile is a work in progress!! I promise to send out on time to the best of my ability. If for some reason I can't, I will always contact you!!!

With that said...

I’m a 32F married and new mom to a happy as can be little boy. I wanted to start doing this to help bring more adventure to my days as I am a SAHM/WAHM (work at home mom).

I’m a CYT-200 and Reiki master. Working to become a sound healing practitioner and learning Bach Flower Remedies. I absolutely love the sound of crystal singing bowls! I guess you could say I love the spiritual side of life. Chakras, Meditation, Yoga, Tarot, Crystals, ETC.

I am a Pagan/Wiccan and have been for many years. I love to learn more about other forms of Paganism. I am a combo of Green and Celtic witch (my family is actually from Ireland, and it helps keep me connected to my great-grand father who is no longer with us). I am very earthy in nature. I love plants, gardening, herbs and tea making. I love reading Tarot (and collecting decks). I am an avid crystal collector. I love learning about crystals, plus they are really shiny. I love learning about different paths/traditions.

I am a plant collector. I currently have about 7 plants in my collection. Mostly low-light plants because of how my house was build. I am OBSESSED with learning about Forest-Bathing (Shinrin-yoku) and how nature impacts our wellbeing. Currently reading/researching the effects of grounding.

Mutt lover (pit/lab mix), her name is Izzy! She is almost 10yrs old. She loves squeak toys and chicken jerky.

I have an amazing 1yr old and he is a handful. He has been loving all the happy mail we are getting. He currently loves Bluey and Hey Bear (dancing fruit videos) but I know that will change some day just not today. He loves books and we visit the library weekly. Anything with lots of pictures but currently sensory books (like the Never Touch A series). We are currently loving bubbles and spend lots of time outside. If you feel like sending something, little toddler actitivties would be great!

I love to read!! I read a mix of witchy fantasy and dark fiction (Alice Hoffman, Chuck Palahniuk, Anne Rice, ETC.) and non-fiction self-help/spiritual type books. I also love books on herbalism, magic/paganism, and yoga.

I love spring and fall. Spring is when I get to play in the garden, flowers start blooming, and it starts to warm up just a little to spend more time outside. Fall has beautiful colors! It's cooler have a hot summer, still able to be outside watching the trees change color. I don't handle super hot or super cold weather because of my chronic illness but the in between season are my favorite! I love all things fall: pumpkins, sweaters, Halloween (but like cute not gore type Halloween!)

My FAVORITE series of all time is Harry Potter. I am a happy little Hufflepuff. The books are better, there I said it. I do love other nerdy series like LOTR, my husband has gotten me into Star Wars, and we enjoy The Hobbit.

I love to cross stitch. I like Harry Potter, nerdy (I've stitched Falkor from Neverending Story), witchy, gnomes, or floral/botanical type patterns. I'd love to find patterns for The Labyrinth, Lost Boys, the Black Cauldron & Goonies!! So, if you know where I can find them let me know! I collect needle minders, fabric (any count), and thread colors (you never know when you will need them).

My favorite color is PINK, but I really like the more neutral tones like Dusty Rose. NOT hot or bright pinks. I also really love earthy tones like green and brown.

I’m allergic to wool. I don’t like plain vanilla scented/flavored anything. I am not a fan of grape flavored anything. Please do not send anything that smells really heavy of smoke, I have asthma. Really strong scents trigger migraines.

Things I'd like to receive if doing profile based or RAK:

  • Tarot Card(s)/ Decks

  • Cross Stitch anything

  • Your favorite nerdy quote

  • Bookish anything

  • A note with something you are grateful for written on it

  • Book Recommendations

  • Stationary Paper

  • PCs (botanical, HP, bookish, etc)

  • Witchy/Spiritual related items

  • Answer the Question: What would I do if nothing was holding me back?

  • Anything Bluey for my Monkey (that's my son's nickname)

Please do not send me:

  • Any candy, sugar can cause a migraine

  • Anything religious, unless it is swap specific

  • Reward stickers, I don't really have a use for them
