I appreciate kindness in all forms.
I send all my swaps on time, so if you are waiting on something from me, PLEASE send me a message before rating down. The mail has been so unpredictable recently. I am happy to re-send any swap. THANK YOU!!
I practice yoga, reiki, meditation and energy healing.
I love to garden. When I was a kid, I would help my little Italian Grandma with her garden every summer. We would plant tomatoes, zucchini, all kinds of peppers, watermelon, green beans and potatoes. I've scaled my garden way back as an adult. I mostly plant a large variety of tomatoes, peppers and herbs.
My favorite herbs are basil, rosemary and lavender. I love the way all 3 smell!! As for other smelly stuff, I like berry, lemon, cinnamon, patchouli and nag champa. Not a big fan of strong flowers, apple, watermelon or jasmine.
I love spending time with my extended family and because of COVID we haven't had any big gatherings. We have a weekly Zoom call each Saturday and it's awesome but not the same. I miss hugging!
I do a lot of energy work and spend as much time outdoors in nature as I can manage with working full time and taking care of my parents. I love the spirituality of nature and practice pagan traditions and holidays. I love being a kitchen witch bringing the nature inside and creating magic with food. I LOVE all holidays and celebrations of the divine feminine and mother earth.
My favorite "regular" holidays: Christmas, Halloween, Easter and Thanksgiving. I also don't mind receiving holiday items all year.
Favorite Halloween icons: witches, skulls, pumpkins, ghosts, haunted houses, scary trees and cemeteries; not really into black cats or monsters or anything gory. I love tarot readings and ouija board fun.
For Thanksgiving, I like traditional themes - turkeys, pumpkins, fall leaves and woodland animals.
Favorite Christmas themes: traditional red & green, nativity scenes, snowman, silver – anything sparkly. Lots of glitter and sequins. Not into country or rustic themed decorations like burlap and plaid.
For Easter, I love bunnies just not too cartoon-y. I love pastel flowers & ribbon, colored eggs, carrots and Victorian looking Easter baskets.
I have a serious Starbucks addiction. I love the coffee drinks and merchandise. I also love all types of Starbucks inspired stickers and washi tape.
My favorite Washi (but I love it all): Simply Gilded, Paper Geek Co. and Cookie Sticker Co.
I love the Cavallini stationery, journals, stickers, papers...all of it!

I'm a big fan of art museums - especially enjoy Monet, Picasso, Degas, Matisse and Gauguin.
The Art Institute of Chicago is hosting a Monet exhibit. I’m still hoping to see it but COVID keeps messing up my plans. The museum had to shut down and is reopening soon. Fingers-crossed I can take the train to the city in March to see the exhibit.
"Flat" items/ideas of things I will use in journals and projects: washi tape, unique stickers, quality paper pieces, punch-outs, used postage stamps neatly trimmed or off-paper, journaling cards, homemade envelopes, tags, book pages and labels. I also like embellishments like sequins or gems.
Fun fact: I don't eat pork or beef.
THINGS I DO NOT LOVE
• Cats (I know, I’m sorry) • Kiddie stickers • Color your own anything • Disney/Pixar • Facial masks that are cleansers or whatever • Bath bombs. I don’t take baths • Chocolate covered fruit • Flower flavored tea • Not a big fan of St. Patrick's Day. In my town, its shamrocks all year round because of the University of Notre Dame
I love books! I love reading, collecting and sharing all types of books. I'm a big fan of used-book stores and Paperbackswap.
I like to collect old cookbooks, spiritual books (everything from Catholic saints to yoga) and art books.
I read a lot of fiction. I especially like book series. They are fun way to spend more time with the characters.
I enjoy paper crafts, journaling, making prayer beads and rosaries, painting on all type of mediums, washi crafts, candle making, baking sugar cookies in holiday shapes, and drawing yantras and mandalas.
I'm new to knitting, wire-wrapping and paper roses.
I love pen-pals and writing letters. I feel like its a lost art.
Music makes everything so amazing!
Some of my favorite genres:
Pop - some current top 40's, but always will love the 80's best!
Classic Rock - Everything from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Motley Crue
Classical - Mozart, Beethoven and Baroque
World - Kirtan and Liquid Mind
Oldies - I love Elvis and music from the 50's and 60's
