๐Ÿ’ŒADDRESS๐Ÿ’Œ 2024 I live in South Carolina on Wingo Rd!๐Ÿ˜ Please delete any other addresses you may have on file for me.๐Ÿซ‚

Happy Swapping!๐ŸŒŸ

LIFE: ๐Ÿ•๏ธI live in the burbs, which is a big change for me, having lived in the sticks, but there are perks to the burbs too.

๐Ÿ’—I'm a Jesus freak but I try not to put God in a box, and I do my best to love and accept all people as they are, because we are all created to be uniquely awesome. So, I'm not offended if we have different beliefs and I honor where you may be in life as part of your awesomeness.

๐ŸŒฑI am a bit of a granola gal, this means I care about the environment, animals, and other people. โ™ปI LOVE recycling/up-cycling and reusing items when I can and I love thrift shopping/buying second hand. So, when it comes to crafting I try to re-use and up-cycle items if possible (obsessed with junk journaling).

๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธI'm a Newlywed (1st marriage), in my 40's, have one cat fur baby๐Ÿฑ, and @SuperNay is my twin sister๐Ÿ’ž. ๐Ÿ“–I'm a bit old school and love paper over a screen, this applies to reading, planning, and crafting. ๐Ÿ’ŒI love snail mail, typewriters, and happy surprises.๐Ÿ“ƒ

๐Ÿฅ‘I had a wellness business, but we closed and moved across the country to start a new adventure. My husband helps keep me sane and he is also my adventure buddy. ๐ŸฅพI love getting outdoors! I enjoy camping, geocaching, rock hounding, bird (& wildlife) watching, and hiking.๐Ÿ•๏ธ

๐Ÿ˜I try to find the good in everything and be grateful even when I'm feeling overwhelmed by life. I often say, if you can't find the sunshine, be the sunshine ๐ŸŒž.

Favorite Crafts

CRAFTS: ๐Ÿ’–I love crafting, I dabble in many but are a master of none.๐Ÿ–๏ธ

๐Ÿ“ I'm currently enjoying paper crafts the most: making embellishments, mixed media, tags, junk/art journals & altered books, greeting cards, stationary, envelopes, etc. I enjoy rubber stamping (I love stamped images), using die cuts, embossing paper (dry and heat), sparkly and glittery stuff, and ephemera.๐ŸŽŸ๏ธ

๐Ÿ‘พI also occasionally crochet small projects like jar cozies, bags, scarves, wrist warmers, and hats.

๐Ÿ‘‘I enjoy beading small things too, mostly earrings.

๐Ÿ‘œI am a beginner with sewing so I have only made simple projects such as small bags and reusable wrapping paper/cloth.

โœ‚I also enjoy random small projects such as painting rocks, perler beads, embroidery, mixed media, ATC's (I LOVE receiving playing cards especially when they have cute pictures on them), and modge podge.๐ŸŽจ

ENTERTAINMENT

ENTERTAINMENT: ๐ŸŽถ I enjoy most music, with the exceptions being gangsta rap, metal, and screamo, TobyMac is my favorite artist. I also love Rascal Flats, Jason Gray, Lauren Daigle, and John Mayer.

๐Ÿ“š I enjoy reading, I usually have at least one fiction and one non-fiction book going at a time. I have also recently got into audio books too, so I can craft/swap while also "reading" a book. Some of my favorite books I have recently read include "Fierce, Free, and full of Fire" by Jen Hatmaker (Oh my goodness I LOVE this book!), "Disconnected Kids" by Robert Melillo, "11/22/63" by Stephen King, :Wildflower" by Drew Barrymore, "The Safest Lies" & "All the Missing GIrls" by Megan Miranda, and "Ketofast" by Joseph Mercola.
I see myself as a lifetime learner so I enjoy absorbing true knowledge and skills.๐Ÿ“‘

๐ŸŽฒAs for other indoor entertainment I enjoy games: board, card, dice games, and jigsaw puzzles. Rumikube is my current go to game.

๐ŸŽฌI also enjoy movies and some binge show watching. ๐Ÿ“ผ I prefer movies and shows that I feel better after watching, and ones that are not violent. ๐ŸŽฆSome shows I like are "This is Us". "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist", and "The Muppet Show".
๐ŸŽฅFor movies I love documentaries (yup, nerd), comedies, dramas, and suspense. I don't have a favorite movie because there are just too many to love, but a few of my favorites include all the Muppet movies, "La La Land", "Mister Magorium's Magic Emporium", "It's a Wonderful Life", "Fantastic Mr. Fox", and "Monster's Inc.".๐ŸŽญ

๐Ÿ˜I love snail mail and I hope to provide smiles with the happy mail I may provide through swaps.๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’Œ

FAVORITES

HOBBIES: โค๏ธI love getting outdoors๐ŸŒฒ, LOVE campingโ›บ, hiking, rock hounding, and geocaching. I like the beach๐ŸŒŠ but mountains, trees, and lakes/creeks are my favorite.๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒŒ

๐Ÿ“๐ŸŒปI also enjoy having a small garden with fruits and vegetables in the summer, along with some flowers to attract the wildlife, and for picking. I love flowers, birds, bees, and butterflies.๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒผ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ› ๐ŸŒฟI have some indoor plants and although I don't have a green thumb I love plants so I do my best to keep them alive and thriving for as long as I can.

MY FAVORITES: ๐Ÿ’šGreen is my favorite color and then ๐Ÿ’™ blue. ๐ŸŒŽ I love earth tone colors and bright colors.

I LOVE chocolate, ๐Ÿซdark chocolate being my favorite.

My favorite season is Spring. I love the sunshine, the longer days, and the flowers.๐ŸŒž

โ˜•I love coffee and tea, both hot and iced coffee is good, but hot tea is my favorite way to enjoy it.

๐Ÿ’•I LOVE animals,๐Ÿพ especially Cats๐Ÿ˜ป, Sloths๐Ÿฆฅ, Bears๐Ÿป, and Bison๐Ÿฆฌ.

โค๏ธI LOVE Kermit the Frog from the Muppets, and I enjoy Sanrio characters, especially Hello Kitty, and stars amaze me, I love star gazing.๐ŸŒ 

๐Ÿ’ŸI also love stickers, and have been collecting them for as long as I can remember. I love that they are little pieces of art that you can brighten things up with. I love washi tape, it's like stickers on a roll. I also enjoy ephemera, cute napkins, lace and fabric scraps, charms, and other goodies to jazz up junk journals with.๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜

Comment: Thank you for this pretty Happy Mail! I love the quick letter you included and it made me smile! Youโ€™re right our tastes are similar the little ephemera for decorations and fussy cut images. Your stamped images are very โ€œmeโ€ whatever that means. I love old manual typewriters and wild mushrooms. I never eat nor forage for mushrooms though there are many varieties even in my front yard and winding up one of our trees too.
