About Me

Hello (◍‒ᴗ‒◍) to all who may read this!!

As you may guess from my SB name... I ❀ love pandas 🐼 and I used to collect anything stationary/craft related to pandas. My IG account is even panda related @pandaartsylifestyle It all started when I chose "Panda" as my camp counselor name from Girl Scouts a few years ago and it has stuck.

I am 49. I'm married and have a daughter who is a young adult is now attending college. I work full time in the public schools as a therapist for children with special needs. My husband is an over the road truck driver.

SWAPPINGπŸ“Œ Where will I swap -- Is Antarctica too far?? Yes, I am willing to swap internationally.

INCOMING SWAPS-- I try to rate within 24 hours of receiving swaps. If I haven't rated and you have sent... please send me a message and I will double check my log. I am a patient swapper and realize things get returned, lost and otherwise stuck in the various postal service systems of the world. I will contact others before rating anything other than a 5, but do believe in the need for ratings.πŸ’™ Anything sent with effort and friendship in mind is appreciated. (◍‒ᴗ‒◍) πŸ’™ Anything that is sent with an awareness of my profile and/or with generosity will get a quick heart.

OUTGOING SWAPS-- PLEASE send me a message if you don't receive a swap from me. I'm happy to resend if something goes amiss. I do mark sent on the day the item goes into my mailbox. May be picked up by the post office the next day or two days later if there's a holiday. I do try to send out my swaps to the recipients as the partners are posted if they are non-profile based and days before the mail out deadline is they are profile based. If you receive something that isn't your taste and it's a non-profile based swap... kindly just pass on to the next person.

CRAFTING HISTORY πŸ“Œ I've put together personal scrapbooks for the last 20 years... and snail mail pen pals for nearly 30 years. I have a love of stationary and stickers that spans my life since grade school. In recent years I've added a variety of journaling (art, junk, health and faith) into my frequent craft hobbies.

HOT TOPICS πŸ“Œ I am an open minded, but not easily swayed individual. I am a straight, Christian, democrat that is also Asian-American, that lives in the USA/Mexico border, supports our military and is fully immunized. I am a LGBTQIA2S+ Ally.

I am strong in my beliefs but enjoy other points of view and intelligent debate. If your interests, age group, culture, race, religion and/or lifestyle are different then mine that's a BONUS to me. I have many close friends that live different than I do and I love learning about new people, their cultures, their religions and differing points of view. Nice is nice and I truly believe that variety makes the world an interesting place. πŸ‘πŸΌβ™₯️ Love is love. 🌈 Be kind to ALL.

Likes: πŸ’—See ABC likes list below

Dislikes: πŸ‘ŽπŸΌThemes as follows: Mushrooms (but most nature/woodland is great); cats; snakes; tarot, witches, magic, clown or political items. πŸ‘ŽπŸΌI'm not a fan of yellow... especially neon/bright yellows. Touches of yellow are fine. πŸ‘ŽπŸΌItems that smell of smoke. πŸ‘ŽπŸΌPlease don't send loose glitter or sequins. It gets all over my area/crafts and my fluffy pets.

Favorite Music

I like upbeat and thought provoking music from just about any genre/language. Favorites are country, rock, pop, music from musicals (Guys and Dolls; Mama Mia, Moana) and Christian music.

I love ❀❀❀ to swap playlists as listening to new music can be great fun. I'm currently really into Fall Out Boy, Andy Grammer and fellow Filipino American Olivia Rodrigo!

Favorite Books

I listen to audio books when I doing chores or exercising. Mystery and dramas are my favorite. Recommendations are appreciated.

I collect and use cookbooks: Skinnytaste Air Fryer, Hungry Girl Simply 6; Pioneer Woman, 5 Ingredient Semi-Homemade and The Hell's Kitchen Cookbook are my favorites.

Favorite Television

Reality shows (Survivor; Amazing Race; Top Chef; Love Island USA/UK/Australia; 90 Day Fiance, Traitors, Love is Blind), dramas related to medicine (Grey's Anatomy, Station 19, New Amsterdam, The Good Doctor) and other types of series (Downton Abbey; Call the Midwife; Virgin River, Bridgerton).

Does YouTube count as television? I love listening/watching others craft while I'm crafting. I enjoy following along with the tutorials... But also to just have the videos on in the background. My crafting favorites include: The Paper Outpost, Joie de Fi, Camelia Crafts Designs, 49dragonflies and Ceri the Crafter.

Favorite Places I've Been

I grew up in Illinois. Went to college in Iowa. Lived in New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Arizona after graduation prior to moving to Texas.

When I have breaks from my job in the schools I love πŸ’Ÿ to travel. We own a small motorhome and love to get out on the open road whenever we have a chance. While we have a loose agenda, I love it that we rarely make reservations and usually just go where we want to on the spur of the moment. I dream of doing the same when we retire. (fingers crossed I'll retire in 2036). Our class B RV has solar and we "boondock" most days so we rarely need campground reservations and it's small enough that I do share in the driving.

I've been all over the United States including Alaska. Some of my favorite US destinations include: Seattle (we eloped there!) Las Vegas, San Francisco, Yellowstone National Park, Big Sur California, Chicago and New Orleans.

Internationally I've visited: Barcelona, Spain; London, England; Mexico, Canada, Jamaica and the Philippines. I dream of visiting Japan, Australia, the Galapagos Islands and Italy.

Other interests

πŸ’Ÿ I am very interested in nutrition: I count calories and am learning to count macros. I do eat meat, but eat vegetarian many days a week and try to eat primarily plant based as well.

πŸ’Ÿ Chocolate is my favorite dessert, but unfortunately if its mailed to me between April to October the chances it will arrive melted is significant. Second favorite sweet is gummy candy - especially Swedish fish.

πŸ’Ÿ I enjoy VR Cardio games (Supernatural, Beat Saber) on our Oculus headsets.
