About Me

Hello! I'm Jessica, 43 years old, & living in California, USA. I'm a witchy goth crazy cat lady who is beyond introverted. I wouldn't change it for the world.

Favorite Colors: black, dark grey, teal (the darker the better), & purple (the darker the better)

Yes, I am pagan. No, that doesn't mean I want to change that fact.

Please don't send me religious items.

Don't be a post mark gatekeeper.

Sign up will start on the 1st day of the month and will last until the 14th of the month. Partners will be assigned the 15th of the month and you will have until the last day of the month to send your swap out.

Sign ups will be every two weeks starting on a Monday. You will have 2 weeks to sign up, then 2 weeks to send out your swap. Each letter will have a 4 week swap cycle; with a new swap starting every 2 weeks.

ICM COLOR SERIES IN DB ๐Ÿ–ค I am no longer hosting this swap. If you want to host a ICM color swap - go for it! UPDATED June 2, 2024

Sign up will start on the 1st day of the month and will last until the 14th of the month. Partners will be assigned the 15th of the month and you will have until the last day of the month to send your swap out. UPDATED June 2, 2024

This series will only be running from May 2024 to September 2024!
Each swap will be posted the same day partners go out for the previous swap.

You will run the risk of being removed from the group that I host a deco swap in if you do not send your swap. Please send your swap. If you can't contact me AND your partner & we will figure something out. Please COMMUNICATE!

Rating & Hosting Swaps

I am a pretty easy going host. I know life gets in the way. That being said - RATE YOUR SWAPS PLEASE! I am not going to chase you down to see if you sent & if you're partner has received. You are an adult & I shouldn't have to treat you like you where a child. If you have issues with your partner read further please.

  • CONTACT ME for any reason. I don't care what it is - if you need to contact me then do so.
  • Please wait 2 weeks until after the mailing deadline to worry about your swap being received by you or your partner. Mail has been weird in the US since 2016 - even before then.
  • If you have tried to get your partner to send to you & they have ignored you, they said they sent but you haven't gotten it, etc contact me about it please! I will help you get your swap somehow.

I could add so many instances where you SHOULD contact me about a swap, but these are the most important ones. I take my job as a hostess seriously; help me to help you if you need/want it.

I know I could have worded this differently. However the word part of my brain isn't working well as usual.
