Hello! I love anything to do with paper....folding, cutting, gluing, painting- so much more! I am giddy to get into exchanges- I think it is awesome to share your love of created things. I am excited about seeing what others are doing as well and learning new techniques while getting to know great crafty people! I am a pen and paper loving soul, not the best at technology. I bullet journal to keep up with life and the fun things that come along.
Family Life~ I am a wife and mother. I have a teenage son and two small Chihuahua mix dogs, we have have 14 chickens at the moment. I love the different breeds that lay colorful eggs and are pretty to look at. We live in a beautiful part of Florida that is by the ocean and also by a creek that has lots of gorgeous springs to explore. We love being outdoors camping and kayaking and fishing. I try to always sneak a small tote of craft supplies on our outings to craft with.
I don't have any allergies that I know of. I am not too picky and fairly easily pleased and excited.
Peacocks, feathers, hot air balloons, mermaids, fish, ocean creatures, lighthouses, cactus, hibiscus flowers, frogs, lizards, forest animals, chickens, roosters, other farm animals, fall themes and colors, elephants, camping, dragons, tea and coffee. Colors I love: teals, turquoises, blues, and greens.
I enjoy making ATCs- it is so neat to be inspired by someone/something and be able to make a pocket size piece of art to share or document it! I like watercolor paper as my go to base for ATCs. I enjoy making mini journals and notepads to give to friends and mini scrapbooks to document camping trips. I think pocket letters are a fun and sweet way to share your creativity and pass along goodies to new and old friends. Since joining SwapBot I have discovered MemoDex cards and Deco Books- I love them! Scrapbook paper, cardstock, cling stamps, embellishments, washi tape, stickers, die cuts and ephemera to decorate those things are great to receive. I love all types of stationery with cute coordinating sticky notes, paper clips and such.
I love The Cat Who books by Lillian Jackson Braun, the Earth Children Series by Jean M. Auel. I used to read a lot of Dean Koontz but had to stop because I had trouble sleeping at night- his book Watchers is one of my all time favorite books though. I don't like violent, gory books or TV/movies. I will read just about anything other than that depending on the mood I am in.
I like hard candies: Gobstoppers, Red Hots, Fire Balls, Jaw Breakers and suckers. I also enjoy toffees, caramels and trail mixes. I love my coffee- I could drink it all day. I like a nice hot mug of tea occasionally as well.
I do not have allergies but I am sensitive to scented things like stickers, lotions, makeups and perfumes, please do not send anything scented or wearable. I do not wish to receive anything political or any bloody/gory images. I am not interested in Disney characters, emojis or scented stickers. I have no use for kiddy, school reward stickers or alphabet stickers.
I always have a nervousness when I give my envelopes to Mrs. Jean at the post office. Will you like this? Did I do the swap right? Will it make it there? Is it good enough? I want to say a Big Thank You to my partners for your sweet words, they mean a lot! After reading responses and other peopleâ€™s comments, I feel like we all get that nervousness. I think this is a great community of people and you bless me with your beautiful things in my mailbox and your kind words! Thank yâ€™all! ðŸ’™
Update 7/8/2018 Mrs. Jean passed away today.
Mrs. Jean has been in the hospital with a lung infection Please lift her up in your prayers or send good thoughts her way if you would. Thank you. It is such a small town post office, it has been closed all week with her being the only one who runs it. I will try to keep this updated about her.
