About Me

Updated profile on March 2nd, 2024

You don't choose what you go through, but you can choose how you go through it! Choose optimism!

My word of the year is:

Please message me before poorly rating if you are missing anything from me. I am an honorable and fair swapper (see my ratings and amount of swaps I've completed!) and will always strive to make my partners happy!

Hi! My name is Gabi! I'm a happily married, mom of 2 girls (both in college). I love paper crafts, my planner (Hobonichi Cousin a5 and Weeks), journals, Iced coffee, making friends, traveling, photography. My husband and I are WWII Living Historians and own a traveling WWII Museum. We attend many events each year displaying our full WWII FIeld Hospital and our fully stocked, WWII 1942 Ambulance! We are also very active cosplayers in the 501st Legion (Star Wars Charity Organization)

I list LOTS of things, including planner stickers, planner stuff, clear stamps, stationery, embellishments, scrapbooking and journaling stuff -- take a look - might see something you need, want or have to have!

My heart belongs to my three doggos... Comet (Pomsky), Astro (tiny unknown mix) and Kirby (Pomeranian)

A lil of this and that...

I am a DISNEY WORLD FANATIC!


-- FOR JJJ Let's Make a Junk Journal --

This year (2024) I am not going with any specific themes in my journal. I'd love anything you would like to create for me in any color scheme, any theme, any style!

My journals are all different sizes so anything in any size works just fine for me! I use a lot of regular sized Traveler's Notebooks.


My Planners for 2024 are a Hobonichi Cousin A5 and a Hobonichi Weeks


ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ True Antique Ephemera is what I love most! Most of my ephemera collection spans from mid 1800s to the 1950s

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I collect Starbucks gift cards. I love the unique ones from different states and cities, countries and holiday ones (all of them!)

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっI love vellum stickers and clear backed stickers - not a fan of planner to-do or List stickers.

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Medieval, Regency, Victorian and WWII Eras are all areas of my interest and ones in which I do living history impressions.

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I love CHINESE NEW YEAR Red Envelopes! I collect them and have many different ones (Not just Red!) from all over the world.


ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ POSTCARD SWAPS

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ When joining swaps that are just for writing postcards - I really like all sorts of themes -- I'd love one from where you live or depicting something special about your region, state, province, country etc.

------------Hobbies and Interests------------

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I love..

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Antique Shops and antiquing all year round!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Yard Sales/Tag Sales/Garage Sales/Boot sales/Flea Markets... etc..

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Estate Sales are my favorite places to find beautiful RARE books for pennies!!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Auctions

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Traveling - Especially Road Trips!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Hiking, Photography & Outdoors

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ My dream is to one day have a big RV and to travel around the USA & Canada


My Favorite Fandoms

Love :

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ STAR WARS (EVERYTHING!!)

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Phineas and Ferb Swampy Marsh owns my heart (Major Monogram) - I adore Love Handel, Planty the Potted Plant, Doof, Vanessa, Candace, Phineas, Ferb, Lindonna, etc etc all of themmmm!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Star Trek All Series and Movies.

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ GODZILLA My Favorite of ALL!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ **Old Kitchy 40s and 50s "Horror Movies" -- think Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre, Vincent Price, Lon Cheney, Bela Lugosi,

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Doctor Who 11 is MY Doctor - followed closely by 10, 8 then 9 and 2 - My favorite companions are Donna Noble, River Song and Martha Jones

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Supernatural -Dean, Sam, Bobby Singer, Chuck, Alistair, Gabriel, Crowley, Lucifer

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Stranger Things 11, Max, Papa, Vecna & Dustin

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ More to come

No Thank You...

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ No thank you...

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Please no brittle, dried out, flaking book pages or ephemera that is brittle or flaking or turning into dust. It makes a mess and is not useable.

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ No thank you to Sports stuff, teacher/reward stickers, foam stickers or felt stickers .....

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ No thank you to Mustache, Poop or any Emoji stuff yuck

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Please nothing child/baby related as my kids are in college and I have absolutely no use for them nor do I have anyone to re-gift or swap them to.

*Whew*

thank you!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Thank you for reading! You made it all the way to the bottom!!

Comment: How did I not realize that you live in NYC??? I have known you for years on Swap-bot. I guess we almost only swap images rather than actual mail. Thanks so much. I love the postcard. I would love a tour of your city if I ever get back there.

Comment: I love your spread and how you journalled about the apple spiced chai tea. Not really a fan of apple tea myself (cinnamon tea is okay), so I probably won't like this kind of chai. Cute bunny stickers! And the passport size looks like fun to try.

Comment: What a cute page, the little dog and your smiling girls :) I also love the keys and cute mouse, they're really nice. I like that you wrote something about the images as in a proper journal. I'll have to do that more, it looks really effective.

Comment: I love your page, and I especially feel you on "there is no way I could actually rip up an antique dictionary!" The only ones I've ever been able to tear up are ones that I got that were in such bad condition that they were falling apart anyway, and even that, I feel bad about! And I'm also with you on taking weeks to find "the exactly perfect thing." I have so much stuff in this craft room that you could give me a year and I would still be second-guessing myself. :)
