Inexpensive Etsy Faves


::Fall favorites:: Good quality socks, candles and wax melts. Tea (please see preferences below), weight watcher friendly snacks-smart sweets, alani etc., Fall stickers, stationery, and envelopes. Unused postage. Mail art kit - everything needed to decorate an envelope.

I'm 36 and live in Olympia, WA; moved here in February '15 from Ohio. I suppose it's worth mentioning that I was recently diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. I also have chronic pain, fibromyalgia, chronic migraines, and mismanaged (not my fault) hypothyroidism so I often don't feel very well. Well, most everything is not managed because I am poor and have crappy insurance. But I try to make the most of it.

I enjoy snail mailing, postcrossing, spending time with dogs, watching tv and movies, listening to music, singing in community choirs, Zumba & working out, hiking, gardening, and much more. COVID-days, Zumba is online and no choir.


  • making zines
  • brush lettering
  • making a junk journal
  • water colors
  • collage
  • loom knit socks and gloves/mittens
  • needle felting

::CURRENT DABBLES:: - exploring teas.. So far my faves are (specifics): Pickwick Winter's Glow, Private Selection sweet cinnamon spice herbal tea, Salada green tea pineapple mango, twinnings chai, marketspice strawberry and cream, stash breakfast in paris, chai teas, peach teas, BIGELOW WHITE CHOCOLATE OBSESSION (don't think this is sold anywhere, but it's like my favorite of the 2 bags I've ever enjoyed). Prefer flavored teas to plain teas.. fruit, spiced, sweet, caffeine and herbal, definitely do not like black tea plain - working on my mental & physical health as I have many chronic illnesses. - loom knitting

note: - I sometimes reuse packaging. - I have never flaked. Please message me if for some reason you have not received something from me before you rate, so I can make it right - When I mail my swaps that generally do not need to be handled by the PO, I will put them in my outgoing mailbox. So, the postmark will be placed the next day after I have mailed it. As soon as I drop the swap in the mailbox I mark send. So the postmark doesn't match with my "sent by" date. - I take swapping seriously, and consider it a job or contract. I send something that I would like receive & general go above and beyond. If I find something I receive extra special or something I really like, I will rate a heart.


@Sunflotea APRIL TEA SWAP - she never rated or returned/read messages from me. @IsbellSoul STATIONERY SWAP USA HOSTED BY @dalbright - swapper sent notebook paper. Her profile stated she had no stationery as well. Sent message to her and its remained unread since. Rated her a 3. ANGELED BY HOST :)

Themes I like

  • illustrations
  • water colored paper illustration, like watercolor-looking pictures and/or along with black drawings atop. Swoon over this!
  • flat texture on paper..like needle felt animals embroidery on a sticker. I swoon over that!
  • Fruit, Strawberries, Florals/flowers, Cacti, Plants, Ferns, etc., Vintage Botanical.
  • Wonderland or anything by Paperchase
  • Korean/Japanese
  • Indian (as in India)
  • postage stamp/mail (theme)
  • Stars, Galaxy/northern lights
  • Winnie the Pooh & friends, old school
  • Liberty of London
  • Matryoshka
  • Paisley
  • Peter Rabbit & Friends
  • realistic or cutesy Alpacas, Llamas, Donkeys, Polar Bears, Zebras, Giraffes, Reindeer, Woodland Creatures, Peacocks, Bambi, Baby Deer, Dogs.



-mail art kit - tea - things from other countries or where you live, not necessarily things that have your country/state name..more like cultural items or stickers from where you're from. or if you have other stationery or odds and ends from other countries. (hope that made sense!) - any item in the theme section above - paint by number for adults, or other similar by number project. - made in the USA dog treats - unused US forever stamps, also mint older stamps, or international postage stamps. - target, amazon, michael's gift cards, Etsy - unique magnets - Cute Salt & Pepper Shakers

Favorite Crafts

Most of these I haven't done in a long time, but I'd still enjoy them.

  • Photography
  • acrylic painting
  • gelli plate printing
  • embroidery
  • paper crafting snail mail items
  • collage
  • latch hooking
  • coloring
  • sticker slapping


Things I have no use for:

  • paper scraps without a purpose. I have a lot of cardstock scrapbook paper scraps. Cut out collage images are ok, though. You can always message me if you're unsure., recipe cards , dollar store or dollar section sticky paper pads (they never stick for me.), Buttons. , Ribbon. , Makeup. , Lipstick. , Things that smell of smoke. , Bracelets., Political Items. , Religious Items. , Books., Anything racist or hateful. , Dark Themed Items. , Skulls. , Broken things. , Junk Mail. , Clowns. , Scary/Horror movies and other things. , Stuffed Animals, but handmade ones are OKAY. , Bugs (real or pictures). butterflies, dragonflies, lady bugs, caterpillars, bees, etc are OK. Hate spiders, and certain beetle type bugs., Homemade Food Items. , Face care items that contain fragrance/parfum and lanolin. , Dolls, spiders, certain bugs..I'm sorry they creep me out. However, I like Matryoshka nesting dolls or other dolls that do NOT look realistic, and themed items. , Reward/Teacher stickers. , Holiday items or stickers on non-holidays..Though I don't mind holiday stickers on or around current holidays. , Dollar Store paper and plastic crap. , Good 'n' Plenty or black licorice candy., Jewelry that is not nickel free. , Plain colored pens like blue black red or freebie pens.

If you send me something I don't like I will not lower your rating unless it does not meet the swap guidelines. I will give it to someone else.

Comment: The fire station has completely stumped me! Need to think about this one. The search for natural ways is out of necessity because of allergic reactions to pills. Thanks for the washi and so many stamps, you're spoiling me :-)

Thank you for the washi samples! If you would like to be pen pals, let me know. The card was very cute too! Congrats on your diagnosis. And hope to swap with you again sometimes...or wish. Lol.

Cheers, Evan

Thank you for the October WW! (Were the PC's for the CPG wishlist?) I love all the kawaii letter sets. I really needed them, too. You can send letters (or whatever) to me at either address. I'll get it either way. Looking forward to your next letter. Take your time though. I know how it feels not to be into writing. Take care!

TryshaH81 on Oct 14, 2020:

Thank you for the lovely handmade envelopes

Ciska76 on Oct 14, 2020:

kiddomerriweather on Oct 12, 2020:

Thank you for the October WW! I love the touristy PC's you sent for my wish! Already I can see that 3 won't be used because they fit in with two of my collections. =D
