9/16/17 update

As most people know, Florida was impacted by Hurricane Irma. We started preparing on 9/7 for the impact of the storm and didn't even get power back until 9/13. It is a good possibility that swaps to and from Florida may be delayed, even if they were sent out before the storm hit.

Please know, if I have not rated you, it's because I have not received your swap. I also have been keeping close watch on my partners I have sent swaps out to in order to follow up and track packages to make sure they reach their destination. If for some reason you HAVE NOT received a swap from me and it is at least 2 weeks past the deadline, please message me so we can rectify this.

I am hoping the post office gets everything safely where it needs to go. Thanks for understanding.


Hi, my name is Christina

I'm 37 years old. My birthday is August 25th. I am married to the love of my life Steve. We have been married since January 20, 2001. We've been together over 20 years. Our daughter Daliana was born July 5, 2008.

We live with our kitty Abby in a city called Clermont, FL which is near Orlando. On 2/14/17 we lost our other cat and first furbaby Augie :(

Being a mom is one of the most exciting things that's ever happened to me. I look at my daughter every day and count my blessings for having her in my life.

I work at Walt Disney World here in Florida. It's a lot of fun getting to work where so many of my friends vacation. If you have any questions about Disney or need any tips or tricks, let me know!



I think green and I do like to reuse packaging, so please don't be surprised if you see an envelope or box that looks used.

I'm also pretty crafty and create my own envelopes at times out of various things (magazines, folders, etc).

This helps keep more junk out of landfills.


My favorite crafts are inchies, mini pocket letters, matchboxes, ATCs, handmade postcards, mail art, photo collages, making my own notecards, mini zines, sticker crafts, painting, making pet rocks, beading, weaving with loom kits, and plastic canvas art. I dabble a little bit in sewing, but I'm not really that good at it.

I really want to learn to crochet. I kind of sort of can do a single stitch basic crochet, but I want to be able to make something more than just a coaster or square towel lol.

I just made my first dotee doll for a sender's choice swap and it was SO much fun! I think I found a new fun crafty adventure!

I an an avid photographer (Nikon D3200) and spend most of my time taking photos in and around Walt Disney World. My specialty is fireworks.

I would love to get my hands on any items to help my crafty endeavors.

I love Pinterest and you can check out my crazy fun boards HERE

If for some reason you do not receive a swap or a tag from me, PLEASE send me a message and let me know! I know that things get lost in the mail and I send all of my swaps & tags out on time.

Comment: Thanks so much! I see you're a fellow fruit-flavored tic tac fan :-) I hope you and your family make it through the hurricane safely!
Response: YES! Orange Tic Tacs are my favorite! I actually bought a pack of the ones I sent to you when I got yours and I like those too! Thanks for the thoughts for the hurricane - we're hunkered down and ready for it!

Comment: Thank you so much for this great swap. I am especially thrilled to have these address labels. We moved a few months ago and I didn't have any labels with our new address. I'm thinking of you and praying for safety for you and your loved ones during this awful hurricane.
Response: I am so glad that you liked it! I had lots of fun putting it all together for you! It's funny how we always seem to get address labels sent when we need it the most. I appreciate your thoughts and prayers - hopefully Irma will be a lot weaker when she gets to us.
