Updated profile on December 6th, 2023
My word of the year is:
Hi! My name is Gabi! I'm a married mom of 2 girls (both in college). I love paper crafts, my planner (Hobonichi Cousin a5 and Weeks), journals, Iced coffee, making friends, traveling, photography. My husband and I are WWII Living Historians and own a traveling WWII Museum. We attend many events each year displaying our full WWII FIeld Hospital and our fully stocked, WWII 1942 Ambulance! We are also very active cosplayers in the 501st Legion (Star Wars Charity Organization)
Please message me before poorly rating if you are missing anything from me. I am an honorable and fair swapper (see my ratings and amount of swaps I've completed!) and will always strive to make my partners happy!
I list LOTS of things, including planner stickers, planner stuff, clear stamps, stationery, embellishments, scrapbooking and journaling stuff -- take a look - might see something you need, want or have to have!
My heart belongs to my three doggos... Comet (Pomsky), Astro (tiny unknown mix) and Kirby (Pomeranian)
I am a DISNEY WORLD FANATIC!
My family and I visit Disney World at LEAST once a year and have for the past 20 years in a row! If you need help planning a Disney World Vacation or just want Disney World tips... I'm your walkin' talkin' Disney info girl!
-- FOR JJJ Let's Make a Junk Journal --
I Love antique/shabby/vintage and I use this theme for everything I do in my journals.
I also love florals/maps/botanical/vintage circus and theme park/travel/steampunk and Disney
My journals are all different sizes so anything in any size works just fine for me! I use a lot of regular sized Traveler's Notebooks.
My Main Planners are Hobonichi Cousin A5 and Hobonichi Weeks
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I am an avid Junk Journaler! I love making and using mixed my media journals! I also dabble in ATCs (occasionally)
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ True Antique Ephemera is what I love most! Most of my ephemera collection spans from mid 1800s to the 1950s
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I collect Starbucks gift cards. I love the unique ones from different states and cities, countries and holiday ones (all of them!)
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I collect old autograph books from the Victorian era up through the 1920s. The ones that kids brought to school and their friends wrote little poetic lines of affection in.
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I have an extensive Autograph Collection of Celebrities from the 1920s through the 1940s. My Prized autograph is Babe Ruth.
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ My journals are mostly done in a distressed, antique and vintage style. Mostly with authentic vintage and antique ephemera and papers. I do, however, love Tim Holtz style when the swap does not call for authentic vintage!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I use lots of antique old maps and old ledger papers, antique ephemera, vintage tickets, checks, pharmacy prescriptions, notes, old letters, antique postage stamps, old labels, old magazine ads, etc...

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Medieval, Regency, Victorian and WWII Eras are all areas of my interest and ones in which I do living history impressions.
Iʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I use a lot of lace and trim in my journals
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ In my junk journals , I tend to lean towards using old book pages .. I also love to use them for decorating envelopes.
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I love rubber stamped images on old book pages! They are works of art in their own right and I use quite a few of them in my crafting.
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I absolutely LOVE Halloween and Autumn themes for my journals! I love all things creepy and vintage for Halloween and traditional and vintage for Christmas! Heck I love all things Halloween and Christmas themed - those two themes are such 'feel good' themes!
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I love CHINESE NEW YEAR Red Envelopes! I collect them and have many different ones (Not just Red!) from all over the world.
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ POSTCARD SWAPS
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I collect antique (19Teens - 1930s) linen postcards. (Blank and written on.. both are charming)
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ When joining swaps that are just for writing postcards - I really like all sorts of themes -- I'd love one from where you live or depicting something special about your region, state, province, country etc.
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I love..
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Antique Shops and antiquing all year round!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ More to come
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ No thank you...
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ **Please no brittle, dried out, flaking book pages or ephemera that is brittle or flaking or turning into dust. It makes a mess and is not useable.
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Please nothing spicy - hot peppers are a no way!
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Please no Sports stuff. No thank you to...teacher/reward stickers, foam stickers or felt stickers .....
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Please, no thank you to Mustache, Poop or any Emoji stuff yuck
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Please nothing child/baby related as my kids are in college and I have absolutely no use for them nor do I have anyone to re-gift or swap them to.
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Please, no sticky notes or memo papers, list pad papers etc ... unless the swap calls for it, of course. I truly don't use them and they wind up a cluttered mess and eventually get discarded. I'd rather you save them for someone who would be able to use them.
ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Thank you for reading! You made it all the way to the bottom!!
