About Me

Updated Feb 29th 2020

Hello from Texas! Inspirational message of the month: Finding motivation in crafting and sometimes be very low. 1 tip or 2 on how to gain more motivation to not stop doing what you love:

  1. If you find yourself doing a lot of crafting and you notice it's starting to become a obligation, try once a day doing a little something just for yourself. Instead of doing so much for others focus a certain amount of time of your choosing on something for yourself.

  2. Don't forget to take breaks in between crafting. Even though it's what you love to do, just remember to set your alarm and walk around, get something to drink or eat a snack maybe like every hour or so.

Hope these help!

Hey! My name is Samantha but you can call me Sam! I am 32 years old. Born and raised in Southern California, moved to Texas as of june 13th 2019 to be with my spouse. My traveling companion is my cat. We're been through so many moves in the last 5 years. He's one of a kind for sure! A champ with attitude but with a very loving heart! I don't have kids. I might not. Kids aren't really for me. But who knows.😊😊

My interests:

❤️my cat (Ricky) who is a 5 years old huge tabby. I do love cats. And doggos. Tbh I'm allergic to cats and dogs. When I got my cat that was before I found out I was allergic. I already fell in love with him so I take Allegra d just about every morning. Everyone asks me why I keep him then. Uhhhhh because I made a promise to him that I'll always Love him even if I can't breathe because of him 😅😅😅😂😂😂

❤️Favorite colors: purple blue even a little pink. But really all colors are beautiful.

❤️I do like hello Kitty. Kawaii. 👌I don't mind it.

❤️Collecting shot glasses had been a hobby of mine since I was 18. Literally I have Like 150!! My goal with that is to collect as many as I can from anywhere and everywhere.

❤️ I love Star Wars! All the movies! Even the new ones!

❤️Pc gaming in mmos is something I picked up when I was 22. Currently saving for a graphics card. #nerdstatus.

❤️Mario and luigi items. Old school Mario and luigi characters I love!

❤️ Peanuts gallery: snoopy is my FAV!! I even had a tattoo done of him and Woodstock when I was 19. Very silly.

❤️ Chocolate, wine,

❤️Coffee! I love Starbucks and regular cup of joe with french vanilla creamer.

❤️ trying everything at least once.

❤️I travel to scrapbook expos. I do workshops and learn new things every time... A fun weekend event!

❤️Also michaels, Joanns, hobby lobby = home away from home. 😂

👌Tbh I'm not much of a tv watcher. But I love a good action show or mystery.

👌How I met your mother, that 70s show, Cant go wrong with 'friends'. I usually watch these with my boyfriend not usually alone.

👌 Jurassic park is my favorite! All the movies of those!!

Crafting: ❤️basic and intermediate card making with stamps. I'm a beginner in watercoloring, acrylic painting, calligraphy. I'm still learning

❤️I love japanese stationary sets.

❤️ I'm definitely a collector of random findings for No apparent reason except that it makes me happy just looking at it. Haha

Books: ❤️I collect journals with unique front covers. (I guess maybe its not considered an actual book haha)

❤️One of my favorite authors is Lisa Gardner. ( It takes me a long time to finish a book because it seems my life is no stopping. )

❤️I love mystery. With a little love story behind it. ❤️Harry Potter books as well. They are so good!

I collect: ❤️I have snoopy stamps limited edition I have been looking for more like Star Wars or just super cute stamps that are not normal stamps from the post office. So far it's been a challenge finding them.

❤️Shot glasses. I needed to put it twice on my profile because I'm not joking about how many I have! 😂

Post cards: ❤️send me ANY type of post card that YOU think is interesting! Not what I like. Ur animal, color, place you like to visit, home made or anything! Or if you choose to send me a postcard of what I like that's okay too! I won't even be mad LOL

Wish list: Japanese stationery items such as washi tape. I love doggos and catttssssss. ❤️I love pens. Different colors.

❤️I do love stickers. Unique stickers. If you send me flake stickers I would love to recieve them in a small little baggie so they don't fall out all over my cat's head as he lays between my feet 😂😂. Just no childish stickers like reward stickers. Send me stickers that you would like to receive as well.

❤️And anything NFL. I love the Cowboys. I'm a collector of nfl team dallas cowboys items.

❤️Marvel items. Thor, captain america. 👌

❤️DC items. Wonder women

❤️ Blank postcards. I have trouble finding unique postcards that aren't of the town I currently live in. I think that's boring to me. Maybe interesting to others I don't know but I would definitely like to have a collection going of postcards. Even if they're from your hometown.

But really I would love anything. I love hearing from people from different parts of the world. Different parts of the United States. Hearing their story or what they think is super interesting.

Thank you for reading! I appreciate it so much. If you read this far, I thank you because most of the time I'm never heard, I just listen. I can't wait to start swapping and making new friends!

If I message you regarding a swap whether it's about that I might be late a day or any questions, please please please message me back letting me know feedback or answers! Just a little common courtesy!

Also!!! Also!!!! I'm the biggest procrastinator in the world but I manage to send out my swaps on time and I always rate. I may not rate the exact same day that I receive something but I do it in the span of the next two or three days. That being said I don't mind if anybody is a day late after the swap deadline but if you're more than two or three days late and I don't get a message from you befor the deadlines ends just explaining that you need a few more days (trust me I understand in this area) I will rate a 3!! If I can be on time then I really expect others to be on time too. to be honest I put in a lot of thought of whether I should join swaps or not. If I really think that I can't meet the requirements then I just don't join. That should go for other people as well. If you really think your life is that hectic that you're barely going to make it then I suggest not doing it. And I mean this in the most humble way possible.

And if u don't receive my swap please please please tell me because I am more than happy to resend. So far there's only been one person that didn't get my swap! Thank goodness!

Comment: Thank you for such a gorgeous loaded paper bag! I loved how you decorated with ephemera! I loved the super cute pocket letter as well as the washi and ephemera! Thank You!
TiffanySmart rated for Mini loaded paper bag on Jan 21, 2020
Comment: Thank you for the loaded bag. My only disappointment was that the bag was tiny- not the swap required size. Will still rate a 5.
Response: The swap says mini sized loaded paper bag. It doesn't have an exact measurement. Because it's a MINI bag. Mini as in smaller then small. I would know because I created the swap.
