About Me

"Whatever you are, try to be a good one." - William Makepeace Thackeray

I was born and raised in the beautiful and mountainous western Maine. I am humbled by the majestic natural beauty of the land that is my home.

While so many other people are blaming 2020 for everything they don't like in their lives, I have greatly benefitted from having my world derailed from its axis. I have learned so much about myself and my values and feel enriched because of it. I have a better understanding now of what actually is important: things like meaningful connections, relationships, social responsibility... This has helped me care for myself much better and cleared my mind so I could make necessary changes.

In February of 2021 I started a new career in education. I'm currently working as an Ed Tech in a private homeschool program. Prior to this, I owned and operated my own gymnastics facility for 5.5 years and spent the past ten years working exclusively as a gymnastics coach.

I rate honestly and fairly in accordance to Swap-bot policies. The rating system is meant to help keep people honest and fair with their swaps. Admittedly, I have high standards and am highly selective in awarding hearts. Ya gotta really wow me for that heart. I think, if used properly, the hearts can really help differentiate the quality of one's swaps. Please do not take it personally if I do not reward your swap with a heart.

I am approachable but will not tolerate any abusive language directed at me. I expect all interactions on Swap-bot to be handled in a professional manner. If someone cannot/will not speak to me with respect, no matter the issue, they will be immediately blocked and I will no longer be willing to discuss the matter with them.

Favorite Music

a non-exhaustive list of bands/musicians whose music I love: Air, Beth Orton, G. Love and Special Sauce, Zero7, Groove Armada, Wax Tailor, Tori Amos, Boards of Canada, Fun-Lovin Criminals, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bob Dylan, Shawn Lee, Johnny Cash, Rancid, Jurassic 5, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Bill Withers, the Flaming Lips, Social Distortion, Cake, Lemon Jelly, William Orbit, Four Tet, the Postal Service, Beck, Massive Attack, Thievery Corporation...

Favorite Books

I haven't been a huge reader in recent years but with more free time than I've had, I've been slowly picking up books and reading them. I enjoy mainly non-fiction (true crime, social issues, biographies, autobiographies, memoirs) but I also enjoy dystopian tales (like 1984, Fahrenheit 451, Animal Farm, The Giver, etc).

Favorite Crafts

I am entirely in love with decos and slams. I have been swapping slams for over 20 years and decos off and on for about 15. I feel a pull from my soul to work on decos/collage on a regular basis. Just how I envy a lot of my dancer friends who move and dance daily, that pull they have for dance is what I feel for deco. I wish I had that same pull to dance like they do. Pre-COVID, I was an up-and-coming burlesque performer and had been a performance dancer since 2018.

What I Swap

Decos, Slams, Bags, Lyrix (if they still exist...)

I'm possibly open to swapping books.

I love to receive stickers but am not a fan of swapping them.

I take great pride in my artwork. Everything I make will be of good quality and I prefer the same in return. When you rate me for a swap that was handmade by me, I would love to hear what you think of my work and appreciate it if you took the time and care to do so.

Comment: Thanks for the deco and added postcards! I happened to send back a full deco to Kymmy a couple months ago, so know she’s in the US, no worries :). It’s going to be interesting picking a female singer, but I’m determined to make it work!

Comment: Thanks for the deco. I like what you did with the theme. Somewhat of a challenging theme - but that's why we are here. Thanks for the journaling cards.

Comment: Thank you! The coin is now activated; OCNFHC =) I'm sending it out into the world as soon as I have the time to go geocaching.
Response: My boyfriend (RunsFromBears) and I scanned photos of the front and back of the coin. If you want me to e-mail them to you so that you can use them on the coin's web page, let me know.
