About Me

I live in the island of Puerto Rico and I am a stay at home mom at the moment to a baby I had in January of 2018. I like to read, go to the beach, go hiking and relaxing spending time with family and friends. I love to craft, draw, paint and recently I've been learning about junk journals and making them. I like to try different kinds of tea, mostly I like caffeine free ones as I am still breastfeeding and I also like to try new candy, mostly chocolate. I like crystals and new age stuff and learning about others spiritual practices, cultures and traditions. I love journals and notebooks and fill them up with different things.

I like journaling in the junk journals I make, especially now that I have a little one. Is so fun keeping a record of the new things he does and learns. I watch crafty youtube channels for learning and inspirations so recommendations are always welcomed.

Favorite Crafts

Ive liked drawing and painting since I was a child and I love to craft with paper. For the past 2 years I have been really into junk journals. I love making them and using them. I love to journal using bits and pieces from my everyday life and will be doing my first December daily this year. I have been really into making flip books lately and sent my very first one recently. They are just so much fun to make. UPDATE April 2019, I am now learning embroidery and loving it.

SWAPPING

I live in Puerto Rico, this is part of the US so the postage and timing are the same as when sending to any other state. I say this because I have a budget for swapping and sometimes I join the regional swaps for the US and have been banned because is US only. This leaves me with only the option of international swaps and is more costly for me to always send international.

I dont flake and always try to send on time unless something bas happened in which case i will let you know. If you don't receive something please let me know so I can make it right and resend. I will always rate and even give hearts when I feel the mail is special, it could be something as simple as a note. I love it when things are creative and wrapped nicely and I love decorated envelopes.

I reuse packaging as much as possible and like to make my own envelopes out of paper bags and packaging as often as I can.

Comment: Your stationery is so pretty ... WOW! I wish I had such miniature houses to paint & decorate ... even now ! :) I too missed "big brand" craft supplies very much. Now they are finally available in India, & I have already lost their charm. Believe me ,they are half as satisfying as using the stash you "spotted". But, of course, I'm taking about paper ... glues & paints & inks - those can't really be thrifted :) Thanks for the lovely All about Crafts letter!
