❤Trading partners, if there is ever a problem with one of our swaps please, please always contact me before leaving low feedback. I will always send things out on time, however the post office is not as efficient or as trustworthy as I am😁and things can be delayed or lost. If there's a problem let's talk and work things out.🤗❤
Hi everyone I am here bcuz I was searching for ephemera pen pals online and came across this site hoping to find a few. I am a mixed media artist, housewife & mother of one beautiful 20 year old boy. I have three degrees but unfortunately haven't been able to use them bcuz I had fibromyalgia for over 15 years. So I have lots of time to be creative... when I am physically and mentally able. I do woodworking, metal work, and have dabbled in many other art forms over the years including clay, graphic arts, photography, jewelry and more. I made a living for awhile painting with acrylics,. I have a passion for art journaling, card making and scrapbooking, which is why I'm here. I would love to find someone to swap/ pen pal with, to trade things, like interesting and fun ephemera, stamps, stickers, rubber or cling stamps, die cuts, stencils, art and more.
❤LIKES: I am slightly obsessed with stickers. I love them! You're pretty much guaranteed to get a 5 and a heart from me if you send cool stickers. I really love all kinds of ephemera but stickers are my true love. Some of my favorite sticker themes are: Lisa Frank. Disney mostly just Mickey & minnie mouse & alice in wonderland. Sanrio but only Little Twin Stars, Hello kitty, My Melody, 80's themed, Mrs Grossman, Oilies Fantasy: unicorns, rainbows, mermaid, dragons, puffy, anything donut, cake, candy related, baking, cooking, Butterflies Dimentional stickers Foil stickers especially seals for envelopes.
Some of the other things I enjoy collecting are art supplies, die cuts (I use my Sizzix big shot daily), stickers, stamps (postage, and rubber & cling), unique measuring cups, Disney & other unique lapel pins.
I love Steampunk, old watch parts, cogs, and some Oriental themed stuff also love to bake and cook. Hobbies and collecting: I grew up going to antique stores with my parents. I still love the treasure hunting of going to antique stores, flea markets, swap meets and even thrift stores. Both my parents were collectors. I collect dolls, mostly monster high dolls, Ever after high, Winx, some Disney dolls, kiddles, stieff, some strawberry shortcakes and more. If any of you are strawberry shortcake doll collectors and collect them, especially the newer ones, let me know because I am trying to thin out my storage.
DISLIKES; I am very allergic to cigarette smoke so please don't send anything with that scent. I don't really do well with strong scents at all, so other than scratch and sniff stickers I would prefer not to receive scented items. Thank you for your understanding.
Books: I love scary stories and juvenile fiction fantasy books with some kind of magic or scifi element too them. The main reason I love these two types of books is because they are an escape. I like a book that can take me away from reality on an fun or scary and fantastic journey. My favorite scary book author is Darcy Coats. A few of my all time favorite books are: 1) I Road a Horse of Milk white jade by Diane Lee Wilson 2) Craven Manor & Ghost Camera - Darcy Coats 3) The Haunted Florida 3 book series by Gaby Triana 4) Journey's End by Rachel Hawkins 5) The Enchanted forest chronicles by Patricia C Wrede
My favorite movies are like my favorite books, I like them to take me away from my reality. My favorite movies are: 1) Chronicles of Riddick 2) Lord of the Rings trilogy 3) the 3 Hobbit movies 4) Return to Me 5) Pirates of the Caribbean movies 1 & 3 6) Pathfinder (mostly bcuz Karl Urban is gorgeous) 7) Princess Bride 8) Monty Python Quest for the Holy Grail
Most of my favorite music is from the 80's. I like R&B, pop, rock, some alternate, some Christian, some country, even a little reggae and rap. Some of my favorite songs are: 1) Give Me the Reason by Luther Vandross 2) Heaven Help Me by Dion Estus and George Michael 3) my favorite album is the motion picture soundtrack from Flashdance 4) a lot of the movie Grease's soundtrack 5) if You Leave Me Now - Jaya 6) Neon Moon by Brooks and Dunn 7) Without you by Halsey is currently my favorite song
A little more about me: Things that are important to me are family and the Lord. Driving, listening to music, doing art and listening to faith motivated teachings by mostly Joyce Meyer & Joel Osteen these are my sanity. My health has been a difficult journey to say the least, amongst a whole slew of other things I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. It is a horrible & incurable disease I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. But having it grew my faith in leaps and bounds and on Aug 25th of this year God healed me of it. I still struggle with a couple other health issues but I believe God has already taken care of them too. For anyone struggling with this disease or any other "invisible " disease, I highly recommend the site "The Mighty " it has been a huge tool in helping me & my husband cope with the difficulties of the fibro, depression and more.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read about me. I look forward to communicating and swapping with you in the near future. God bless, Heather
