About Me

Hi, I’m Stephanie! I chose the user name PrertyAlice because Alice is my middle name and I like the way it sounds. I love to read, garden organically, cook and bake, listen to music, watch Netflix and YouTube and of course craft. I love Harry Potter, mythical creautres (mermaids, dragons, fairies, unicorns, vampires, etc.), florals, butterflies, Tim Burton, and all things witchy. I love nature and all animals and have two sweet kitties but my favorite animals are bats. My favorite colors are black, purple, dark red and thrquoise. I also like light rosey pink on vintage and shabby chic projects. I consider myself to be Pagan but am open minded to all religious and spirtual paths.

Craft styles I like best are vintage, shabby chic, gothic, steampunk, macabre (Bones, bats, etc.) and creepy Halloween. I also like vintage and traditional Christmas themes during the holidays. I love stationary and writing letters to my pen pals so letter sets are always welcome. When I can I enjoy using wax seals on my letters too. I collect enamel pins and am trying to build my collection. I also collect stamps and postcards (written and stamped) and am trying to get all 50 US states and as many from the rest of the world as I can. Another couple things I collect are crystal gems and skeleton keys.

I always send on time and pledge to rate honestly. If for some reason you don’t get a swap from me please message me before giving me a bad rating. Communication is appreciated!

I’m very sensitive to scents and many give me a bad migraine so please don’t send anything scented. Thanks!

Favorite Crafts

My favorite crafts are papercrafting- things like cards, pocket letters, flip books, zines, embellishments and recently deco books. I’m fairly new to decos but think they are such a cool idea and super fun! I also like making jewelry using real gemstones. I have very sensitive skin so I like creating my own bath and beauty products like soaps, shampoo, conditioner, bath bombs, candles, etc. using essential oils. I create my own recipes and designs and do everything as naturally as possible. I enjoy decorative planning with stickers in my Erin Condren planner too. I have even made some of my own stickers and planner accessories. I also sometimes make ATCs and do art journaling. I’m still pretty new to them but I do think they are fun.

I would really like to get into making books like junk journals. I have a couple books on book binding but have only briefly flipped through them. I think it would be amazing to receive a junk journal from someone.

Favorite Books, Movies and TV

I really like fiction, teen fiction, distopian, fantasy, sci-fi, mystery and horror novels. Some of my favorite books are the Harry Potter series and Shoot the Moon by Billie Letts among some others. Some authors I enjoy are Sarah Dessen, Laurie Halse Anderson, L.J. Smith, Billie Letts, Charlene Harris, Kathy Reichs, Scott Westerfeld and more. I usually listen to audiobooks rather than reading physical books but both are great.

I love Tim Burton movies like Edward Scizzorhands, Sweeney Todd, The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Corpse Bride. I also like the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Alice in Wonderland, Practical Magic, The Skelleton Key, Lovely Bones, The Virgin Suicides, and more.

I like mystery, suspence, sci-fi, and fantasy shows best. I really like the shows by Joss Whedon. Some of my favorite TV shows are Haven, Buffy, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Firefly, Tru Calling, Dollhouse, Supernatural, Warehouse 13, Lost, True Blood, House, Dexter, Sherlock, Merlin, Bones, Psych, The Finder, Hart of Dixie, Saving Grace and many more! I don’t really have many favorite actors but a couple are Eliza Dushku, Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp.

Wish List

I love receiving all sorts of mail. Letters and hand made cards are great. I would love to receive crafty items like washi tape, stickers, planner stickers, scrapbook paper, die cuts and metal dies, embellishments, sticky back rhinestone gems, shaped sequins, rubber or clear stamps, etc. Any card making supplies are always welcome.

Some other ideas are sealing wax, postcards, stationary, handmade envelopes, colored pens, enamel pins for my collection (guaranteed heart), and gemstone beads (glass are fine but I’m not a fan of plastic beads). Seeds (especially heirlooms) for my garden would be nice too (I grow fruits, veggies, herbs, flowers and have a fairy garden). I also like to receive nice handmade goodies like pocket letters, flip books, loaded bags/envelopes, zines, junk journals, etc. I am recently getting into deco books so I’d love to receive these as well.

Dislikes

One thing I really dislike are strong scents because they give me a horrible migraine so please don’t send anything scented. The only scent I like is peppermint essential oil. I’m also not really into childlike craft items like cartoon or character stickers. (I do like other stickers though). I’m highly allergic to lavender, jasmine, peanuts, cigarette smoke and all metals except sterling silver. PLEASE NO FOODS WITH ASPARTAME, NUTRASWEET, AMINOSWEET, NEOTAME, OR PHENYLALANINE. I am highly allergic. I’d appreciate it if you didn’t send any food or drink items unless the swap specifically calls for it. Thanks!

I don’t care for flakers and people who are rude so please be kind and I’ll do the same. :)

Comment: Hi Stephanie, Thanks for the cute flip book - I love the deer pattern paper you chose. Earl Gray is my favorite and that chocolate bar cut out is adorable. Renting a cabin sounds so lovely - I hope you have wonderful Christmas!

Comment: The resend still didn't meet swap requirements for 'mail art decorated envelope' but I give up. I suggest looking up examples for mail art for future swaps that require mail art. It is not slapping 2" of washi tape to the front.
Response: I’m sorry you and I disagree on the term mail art. I will however look up some images online.

Newbie Friendly- Profile Joke #1

Now no one said they had to be funny jokes right because I found definite gongs

Hope you enjoy though

Every morning after I wake up, the first thing I do is make my bed. Tomorrow I’m returning this piece of junk to Ikea.

Breaking a leg during an audition… Ensures that you end up in the cast.

I rode the elevator to the eleventh floor, and as I got out, the operator said, “Have a good day, son.” “Don’t call me son,” I said. “You’re not my dad.” He scratched his head and said, “No, but I brought you up, didn’t I?”.

What currency do they use in outer space? Starbucks.

My wife always prefers the stairs, whereas I always like to take the elevator. I guess we are raised differently.

On a scale from one to ten, how obsessed with Harry Potter are you? About nine and three quarters. Newbie Friendly Profile Joke #1

What's the difference between a hippo and a Zippo? One is really heavy, the other is a little lighter.

Newbie Friendly- Profile Joke #1

A preacher, completing a temperance sermon, spoke with great fervor! “If I had all the beer in the world, I’d throw it all into the river.??? With greater emphasis, he said, “And if I had all the wine in the world, I’d throw it all into the river.??? And finally he said, “And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I’d throw it all into the river, too!??? As he took his chair, the song leader stood and announced with a smile, “For our closing hymn, let us sing number 365: “Shall We Gather at the River.???

I've been thinking about having a wax seal to seal my envelopes and such myself. It sounds like it's a lot of fun! Have a great week!

Hello! I love horror things too! I'm a mix of half super cute and super creepy, lol! I think it's really cool that you collect pins. I collect patches. What's your favorite pin that you own? It's awesome that you make your own beauty products. Things that are handmade are much more enjoyable because you know that someone put their heart in it. What is your favorite gem stone to use? I hope you are having a good day! Jasmin
