About Me

My Instagram - Oddly link above not working - https://www.instagram.com/seleneandersonwilder/

Greetings!

I am a 46yr old mom of two boys and I have been married 22 years now to a wonderful man who puts up with my crafting. My sons both have ASD. One is 18 and a senior in High School. The other is 10 and in 4th grade. Recently my younger son and I went to Disneyland for Halloween 2018 and we had a great time.

I have been learning how to bind books. I love butterflies and woodland animals such as foxes and deer. I enjoy Pusheen, Grumpy Cat and Disney. I am a fan of Wrendale Designs woodland creatures.

I have a rare name and so I don't usually see it on key chains etc. So I am very happy when I see my first name in pretty script or fonts on cards, letters and PCs.

I do like mythical creatures as well dragons being my favorite.

My family and I do celebrate secular holidays.

Please message me if a swap is late or gone missing. I only mark sent when I hand the physical letter or package to the postman or I drop it off myself at the inside post office mail slot.

Favorite Crafts

My favorite crafts are filling my own personal journals with fun things, writing to pen pals, and counted cross stitch.

I have made my own journal from scratch including tea staining the paper, binding the book, making signatures and stitching them in. I am currently slowing down on swaps while I make a few of more.

I love to practice my handwriting. I think it is an important skill to keep working on. I hope to learn Brush calligraphy.

I am learning a lot from Swap-bot about the various types of different crafts. It is quite a bit of fun. YouTube and Pinterest make it so much easier to find out how make items. I have to say thank you to all the DIYers out there that load up videos and pictures.

Favorite Music, TV & Books

I prefer listening to pop and rock music. Recently I have been into K-pop bands (G)idle and Blackpink I have enjoyed listening to all kinds of music though including jazz, classical and cultural.

I prefer watching DIY on YouTube. I have been learning more about paper crafting and brush lettering lately.

I have actually never had a favorite book. Quite a bit of this has to do with my terrible reading comprehension so I tend to restart books over and over. It was easier as a teen since I could spend all day reading and wasn't interrupted but these days interruptions are commonplace so I lose the thoughts of the story mentally quickly. I still am reading The House with a Clock in its Walls by John Bellairs but am finding it dull. I did enjoy the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J. R. Ward

Small Things I Enjoy

I love stickers, except puffy. I subscribe to Stickii and buy all three packs. They are awesome stickers that are non kiddie, non alpha, great for planners. Check them out at this Stickii Link

I love ephemera, such as pretty vintage playing cards or die cuts to craft with.

I like to journal and collect fun stuff to put in it. My journals are quite poofy.

I have started collecting vintage playing cards. I really like the animal or floral ones best.

I do like postage stamps but I am not a big collector. Pretty used ones often go in my journal.

I do enjoy stamped images that I can color in and add to my journals.

I do like Kawaii stationery but I am not picky about it. So if you are in a Kawaii swap that is particular don't worry about what you send to me. I am okay with receiving Diaso, American Kawaii, and cheap Sanrio.

I love butterflies.

butterfly

Disney characters, especially Minnie and Mickey. Oh and Stitch.

Tiny things such as miniature cars (micro machines) and ceramic animals. I have a tiny wolf sitting on my desk in front of me now.

Angels and RAKs

Random

Had a bad day, week, month? Running low on note cards, stationary but want to keep swapping? Message me if you would like a RAK (Random Act of Kindness) and I will see what can be done.

Deco Book Info

I am new to deco books relatively but I do enjoy working on them. I don't mind occasional homers to international destinations especially if you double check the return address.

Some of you may end up finding in your deco book work that has been done by Baba my mother who is a watercolor artist. She does the work but has me attach it to the book and mark the information for her. It will be signed pfa or P. Anderson instead of her nickname Baba. She loves looking at the deco books and I do encourage her to work on a page because that does help them move them along faster also her work is exceptional.

I use the following picture of her work in my swaps.

Babaswork

No Thank you, please

Please as a side note, I do not wish to receive anything religious. I am not religious but respect all religions and the people who practice them.

Sadly, candy treats I cannot have. I am on a special diet from my physician.

Please no clothing or house hold items.

I really don't care for glitter.
Please Note: A tiny amount well stuck to the paper such as on a card or sticker is fine.

I don't care for confetti or sequins.

I personally don't use temporary tattoos so they just get passed along.

I personally don't use puffy stickers as they are don't match my aesthetic for journals and so I just pass them along.

I personally don't use classroom reward stickers but I do pass them along to a few teachers that love them.

Thank you so much for the birthday card! Happy mail!! Thanks.

earthnk on May 3, 2019:

Yaaaaaaaay! It was so fun surprising you with your name printed on that pillow cover. Your profile states you can never find anything with your name printed on it. I’d been on the lookout in my travels and you are RIGHT! Zip, zoom, NADA! So I chanced upon and idea and now you have your name on something! I’m so glad you liked it! I had such a blast making it happen.

😊
