About Me

I love trying to find the perfect gift for someone. Hobbies include video games (all mario games, zelda, sonic) I'm in awe of beautifully crafted and curated packaging, anyone who writes calligraphy and creative people. I think glitter is awesome. I'm an adult who likes to build lego. I'm obsessed with mystery boxes, I think they're great, the surprise of not knowing what you're going to get. I frequent our little free libraries in town, love swapping clothing and lending out items to friends. I try to hunt for a good deal but also do not mind spending a little extra for quality.
I like hearing the stories of where things come from. For example a neighbor passed along rugs for us to use in our home and she was happy to give them to us, as they came from her home in Sweden when she moved here many years ago. Because of the story, they carry more meaning to me than just a rug my neighbor gave us.

I currently live on Long Island, a suburb of New York City but have lived in other places as well. Thinking of moving with kids to Pennsylvania soon. I welcome any advice or suggestions if you're familiar with anywhere in the state. My favorite place to live was Austin, TX because people were so welcoming and friendly.

I think renaissance fairs are super cool.

My favorite season is the fall, when the air is cool and crisp. I enjoy spending fall weekends hiking, hanging out with friends around a fire, attending fall festivals and connecting with the outdoors.

I like to travel and hear stories about traveling. I'm the nerdy friend who would enjoy coming over and watching a sideshow of your vacation photos and stories of funny things that happened during your adventure. (Do people still do that?)

Favorite Television

Schitts Creek is my favorite show, I'm obsessed! I love everything about the show and would join or host a SC swap in a second if there is interest.

Blown away (on Netflix) is my favorite reality show. I think blown glass is stunning.

Timeless- so sad it was canceled.
fantasy/sci-fi: Grimm, the Witcher and Star trek (tng is my favorite)

Favorite Crafts

I've tried glass fusing, glass mosaics and resin casting at a local studio a long time ago.

I have a special place in my heart for paper crafters and people that have the special eye for upcycling items. I used to love paper crafting but do not devote the time like I used to.

I'm interested to know what you're currently working on and what you like to craft (if anything) I watch a lot of paint pouring videos and hydro dipping, I find them fascinating but haven't tried them yet. I'm interested in learning about sticker bags. I want to join sticker bag swaps but have never seen one. I welcome a sticker bag in any swap so I can be more familiar.

I like new examples of altered art, upcycled items and creative stamping or paper crafting techniques I might not be familiar with.

I'm currently working on a shark theme set of stationery for a friend- if you have any shark theme items, please think of me! Any sharks-- cute, scary etc.

My next big project this winter will be a junk journal. It's unlike anything I've done before so I plan to take my time. Please share tips/ ideas if you have any!

General info and goodies

In my professional life I'm very boring, with neutrals and black colors so at home, I like rainbows and holographic or iridescent colors. If I had to pick one color it would be a patina green with a little shiny copper peeking out. Crafting:  - vintage/retro is my favorite style followed by kawaii/cute. I have always thought googly eyes were cool and still do. Crystals in any form. Decorated matchboxes are beautiful. I'm especially interested in creative paper crafting techniques, knowing how you made the awesome thing(s) you made.

Stickers: Clear stickers are super cool. Stickers of food with or without faces, sticker flakes, any kawaii stickers.

General likes: I love fancy packaging, unique office supplies, time with family, fancy stickers, reading about the royal family, succulents, 90s alternative music, logic puzzles and rubiks cubes, Helping people, lootcrate and thinkgeek, anything handmade, wind chimes, nail polish strips, shiny or sparkly hair accessories, things with meaning or purpose, wind chimes, oversized memo paper/blocks, supporting local small businesses.

Always searching for: Kawaii items Ephemera of any kind.
Computer punch cards, Interesting jewelry clasps, charms or pendants, medieval themed accessories, hair pins or clips, foreign currency, decorative packaging materials, unique items from small towns or international places, pressed pennies, washi tape with vintage patterns or glitter Things with holograms or holographic papers Stained glass or inspired looks Patches or mini buttons for backpacks altered items (paperclips, matchbox, etc)

I love cities and anything to do with cities. Images of Bridges, skylines, maps, busses, taxis, rooftop gardens, all things that are city, any city. (I have a fondness for London but like all cities)

The only thing I can think of that I wouldn't use would be earrings. My ears are not pierced and I feel guilty regifting or repurposing your creation into an embellishment.

Comment: Thankyou so much! You spent so much care in selecting the items, I love the vintage feel for everything and thankyou so much for the card from your wedding, that was so special of you to share. I loved everything <3 (Also don't worry about the vintage french book pages, they don't say anything bad from what I gather the darker pages was talking about a battle in Egypt and the lighter smaller pages about the garden of Charles V. haha) Thank-you so much again! All the best :)

I am beetle crazy. These beetles are found in and around South East Asia and Australia. Amazing colouring!
