About Me

Back to doing PC swaps and small group swaps.

I am a Contract electronic resource Librarian in the sunny state of Colorado. I also teach after school science classes and art classes.


I am married with 4 parakeets as pets. They keep me entertained with their antics. Their names are Sherlock, Ghost, Cooper, and Oscar.

I am navigating my 30's and loving it. My hubby and I travel as much as we can and live life to the fullest. I'm an avid hiker and try to do at least one hike a week.

I love crafting especially with felt and buttons, sewing skirts, making jewelry and geeky crafts. I also am a pottery/ceramic student at a shop in our town.

If you have not received something from me please let me know asap so I can send again. I will rate as soon as I can, usually that day or the next. If for some reason I have not rated you please let me know.



*Forest Animals- Foxes, bunnies, moose, hedgehogs, black bears, pandas.

*Ocean animals- penguins, beluga whales, sea turtles, octopus and squids

  • Hiking and outdoors- Stickers for my water bottles, quotes about hiking and being outdoors, pins or patches for my backpack

*Birds- Hummingbirds, bluebirds, Towhees. I am a huge fan of crows and ravens.

  • Space things- Constellations, Northern lights

  • Literary themed items. I will forever be a librarian in some shape or form. I love quotes about libraries and bookish items.

Favorite Books

I love reading fantasy and science fiction books. I am a big reader of YA books because of my job and also because most of them are better than adult fiction.

I also like graphic novels, comics, historical fiction, and steampunk.

I also read old fairy tale and folk tale books. I am currently learning stories to tell for my volunteer job. I love hearing stories from other cultures. I also believe in the value of passing on traditional tales.


Romance- I'm just not a fan of 100% romance novels.

Horror- I will read it now and again but I don't particularly care for graphic violence.

Fandom likes

Fandoms I love:

*Star Wars- I'm a fan of Princess Leia and Ahsoka Tano. Pretty much Star Wars girl power!

*Lord of the rings- I love the whole series and read the books often. I love the hopeful quotes and themes.

*KPop and KDramas- I love Kpop related things and kawaii style items. Washi tape, stickers, memo sheets. My favorite groups are- Nu'est, Victon, ACE, Golden Child, Red Velvet, Oneus. Shows- Goblin, Romance is a bonus book, Korean Odyssey, Mr. Sunshine

*Doctor Who- Love Amy, Rory, and Eleven. The Van Gogh episode is my absolute favorite.

Postcards and Stationery

Stationery/Postcards -

  • I love any kind of stationery as long as it doesn't contain nudity.

  • I collect fun postcards with Owls, dragons, library themes, Space, geeky, book illustrations, birds, crows/ravens, flowers, ocean scenes. I also really like art drawings or paintings of animals.

  • I am not fond of spiders, nudity, clowns, or cards depicting violence towards animals or people

Favorite Crafts


  • I love to cross stitch. My favorite patterns are usually geeky in nature. I can always use more floss of any color and needles.

  • I also sew costumes, dresses, and skirts for fun. I'm exploring new creative avenues with my sewing machine.

  • I like to hand-stitch small projects and I'm always looking for new inspiration

  • fun buttons, vintage buttons- I sew them on everything.

Kpop and Kdramas

I'm a huge Kpop fan. It's only gotten stronger during the pandemic. Music keeps me sane and kpop is the gift that keeps on giving. :) Groups that I like: *Nu'est- my ultimate bias group such a great group. *A.C.E.- Bias BK and Seyoon (Wow) *Victon- Bias Seungsik, with Chan and Hanse as almost bias wreckers. Just a total delightful group *Golden Child- I love all of them. *Taemin- His solo stuff is the bomb

I like lots of other groups too. These are just on my top playlists.

For Kdrama: * Goblin * Tale of the Nine Tailed * Coffee Prince * Mr. Sunshine * Flower Boy Next Door * Gogh the Starry Night * A Korean Odyssey * Vagabond

I also like the Chinese drama Untamed

Dislikes and Please don't send


***NO FOOD!!!! I have lots of food allergies and it's just easier to say no to it all than to have a seriously ridiculous list.

  • things depicting violence

  • clowns- I have an actual clown phobia.

  • Anything with a smoke smell.
