About Me

I'm married with 2 beautiful girls. I love watercolors, crocheting, crafts, playing in my art journal, happy mail, bright colors, reading, dark chocolate, coffee, Star Trek, Disney, kayaking, and video games. I also have a major button fetish...lol

I do not flake!!! If for some reason you do not receive a swap from me then please send me a message so we can get it fixed or figured out.

things I would love to receive

You don't have to send extras to receive a heart. I also give hearts if something is well made, packaged nicely or cute, or has a thoughtful note.

Craft Items - watercolor paints or dot samples, yarn, washi tape, paper ephemera (especially vintage), vintage photos, cancelled postage stamps, vintage gummed labels, buttons, stencils or masks to use with paint, lace and vintage ribbon, rubber stamps, anything with owls or birds but especially items I can use for collage or scrapbooking, prima flowers, die cuts (especially labels and frames, words, feathers, flowers), journaling spots and labels, letter stickers, realistic butterfly or flower stickers, crystal or gemstone beads, silver findings for jewelry, delica beads.

Miscellaneous items - Tea, candy, chocolate, Bento cutters and picks, jewelry, anything Disney, recipes (I don't eat beef or pork), cute stationary or note cards, postcards I can use in swaps, girly or kawaii stickers for my kids.

I definitely don't mind used things if they are in good condition. I also love handmade items :)

If I'm in a postcard swap I don't mind receiving handmade but I prefer them to be naked instead of in an envelope if possible. My absolute favorite postcards besides handmade would be vintage photos or images, artwork, pulp, pinups, birds, owls, bugs, and butterflies. I do enjoy receiving other types as long as they aren't religious or portraying prejudice of any kind.

I'm not a big fan of religious items, candles, incense, scents, makeup, or lip gloss.

Favorite Books

Historical Ficton and most fantasy. I really love anything that contains vampires, witches, or werewolves.

NRGordon rated for Chunk O Cardboard - August 2020 on Aug 14, 2020
Comment: Thanks for the lovely 'chunk'. It has been over 90F every day for the past two months and less than a half inch of rain. That is a good 15 degrees over the normal average here in Maine and the longest dry spell in over 30 years. I'm seeking air-conditioning too!
Response: You're welcome :) Ouch! Yes that is hot for Maine! Hopefully you will get some rain soon.

I am so glad your April Stash Bust package arrived so quickly and that you like the owl stamps. I had them on hand and thought they would be perfect for you after reading your profile! Happy swapping. xoxo
