About Me

UPDATE: 9/24/2020 I am back, y'all! As it turns out, we are not moving right now after all. I will continue to be at my current address for the time being, and most likely will be moving after the new year. I will keep you all up to date as things do or don't change. :) Be safe and Take care!

About My Home:

About My Home:

• Citra is a tiny town, a post office, a gas station, 2 dueling pizza restaurants... you get the drift, ALSO home of the Pineapple Orange.There are many touristy old Florida locations near me, including the Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings FL State Park, and the home where she lived while writing "The Yearling". We also live pretty near Florida Gator Stadium, and right around the corner there’s this lovely little place called The Orange Shoppe that has been around here since the early 1930's and sells fruits, nuts, fruit wines and jams and southern candies, such as pecan logs and divinity. (I am happy to swap goodies from here to where you are from, if you are interested please message me!)


I pledge


Also, if by some chance you get me as a partner for multiple swaps at same time, it's okay to ship them together.

Please be advised: I am not online much during the weekend. That is "our time" for my honey and I. We both work 40 hr weeks, with weird overlapping portions of our work time/off time, so any off time together is precious to me. But I do check in pretty regularly, I try for at least once a day, but I don't always log in daily.

I love to do this and I am committed to getting and maintaining good ratings. I have had pen pals on and off my whole life, have been trading note-cards, postcards and junk journals/supplies via Reddit for a year, and have been on Swap-Bot since January.

I promise to always mark received as soon as possible after receiving, and I mark swaps sent the day it goes in the postal box-

Please be advised sometimes my carrier does not pick up from our mailbox until after the mail truck has run to our local office for the day, in those cases they go out of the post office the next day. I live in a rural area. There’s not much I can do about that.

Likes and Dislikes


Junk Journals

Handmade Cards and ATCs

I love hanging outdoor decor (like wind chimes and pretty dangles for my trees near pond) I also make witches ladders and things like that and I like to hang those as well.

Gnomes, mushrooms and fairies

Card stock and various other card making materials

Gel pens and stickers

Glitter and bling on every thing

I love ephemera of all kinds- ticket stubs, menus from interesting places, etc

I also love Tea of all kinds; sweets of all kinds, and I have a wicked obsession with Cherry Blossoms (Canadian Candy) and All Dressed Potato Chips- which we can rarely get here.

Other things I like as well-- burned CD's; unicorns, butterflies, hummingbirds and cardinals, frogs, and moths.

I also collect empty cigarette packs(the soft or hard variety) and chip bags for craft making.

Favorite Colors:

Oranges and Reds in warm tones, Jewel tone colors of all sorts are my favorite colors to work with. Turquoise is my absolute favorite color and magenta or purples are my favorites to wear


Anything political



I collect:

• Recipes; Vintage, New, Cutouts, Family recipes... You name it, I'll try it.

Favorite Crafts

• Embroidery and Cross Stitch, I love incorporating cross stitch and embroidery into card making as well

• Loom Knitting and Hat/Scarf making

• Also, I am a bead hoarder- I aspire to make beautiful jewelry, but normally I just hoard treasures I find at estate and yard sales like that weird little creeper from LOTR. Haha!

Favorite Television

General Hospital LIFER

Been watching since 1998 when I started following Grandma's "Stories" with her in the afternoons. AND IF THEY DON'T BRING IT BACK ON SOON I'M GONNA HAVE WITHDRAWLS. lol

Golden Girls


Chicago PD

Law and Order: SVU

Blue Bloods

Criminal Minds


Favorite Movies

“Not that I condone fascism, or any -ism for that matter. -Ism's in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me." Good point there. After all, he was the walrus. I could be the walrus. I'd still have to bum rides off people.”

― Ferris Bueller

Big Lebowski


Gone in 60 Seconds

Die Hard

Sleepless in Seattle

Home Alone

Mr. Deeds

Comment: Awesome! The resend finally came... Thank you so much for all the goodies and I'm glad I could change your rating!
Response: So sorry to hear you never received the swap, or the resend. I had hoped maybe they were just delayed in the mail and would arrive eventually. I apologise for any disappointment this caused you. I am going into town in the next day or so and I will try mailing you something from a different post office and see if that makes a difference in that getting to you.. Take care and be safe. <3

Response: Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed. I hosted two patch swaps at same time, and wound up receiving from same partner for both. One of the patches she made me had owls and lace, and the one I made for you had owls and lace. Turned out to be a lovely swap full of coincidences.:) Have a great day and be safe! <3

LizzyJo rated for Mystery Supply Swap 6.20 on Jul 24, 2020
Comment: I love what you did with the mystery supply! The abandoned theme park theme is perfect. Thank you so much. Your happy mail was the bright spot in my day.
Response: Thanks so much. I am glad you liked it. 😁 When I saw you liked abandoned amusement parks I thought that paired with the tickets perfectly. 😁 There is an abandoned Disney Water park here in FL I have always wanted to explore, it's so overgrown with natural wildlife and Gators now it's strictly forbidden to enter.... Which would make it even cooler. Haha.

cynaemon on Feb 20, 2020:

Arise, Shine, for thy light is come, and the Glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. Isaiah 60:1 KJB. This has always been a special verse for me. It was our watchword in Girl's Auxiliary, a missions group in the Baptist church where I was raised.
