About Me


Update on june 18, 2020 It has taken some of my swaps up to a month and a half to reach international locations. Please contact me if it has been two months and you still have not received my swap and I will re-send.

I am a mother of 3 kiddos. Caelen (15), Alisha (11) and Rorey (7). We have two cats named Simee and Kiawa, A golden retriever named Dreamy, and two rabbits named Sir Bilbo OakenFloof and Madam Razabelle. My husband is in the military. We are stationed at Fort Carson, CO. We homeschool our kids. We are a family of Secular Humanists (so, please no religious things. unless its buddhist quotes. I do enjoy those).

I love making junk journals. I love painting, photography, poetry, watching netflix, going to theme parks, nature hikes, lazy rivers and collecting children's picture books.

I try to put in my very best effort to every swap, and I really appreciate it when people send me things that they really put their heart into. I love handmade paper crafts; like journals, flipbooks, notecards, and ATC's.

My fave colors are Purple, teal and emerald green. I like all of those colors paired with Black as well. I Like things to have a kind of dark vibe.

Favorite Music

I love songs that tell a good story, and have a good beat.

I am currently really into music by: Smith & Thell, Pvris, Royal & the Serpent, Imagine Dragons, MisterWives, Of Monsters and Men, Billie Eilish, Lewis Capaldi, Anne-Marie.

Favorite Movies

Some of my favorites are Harry Potter series, LOTR, Sherlock Holmes. I love adventure movies. I grew up on Indiana Jones and Star Wars.

Favorite Television

Current faves are Handmaid's Tale, Call the Midwife, This is Us, Poldark, and Outlander. I really enjoy Masterpiece Theater.

Some of my fave animated series are Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra, Hilda, The Dragon Prince, and Kipo and the Wonderbeast.

Favorite Crafts

I love making "junk" journals, handmade postcards, and flipbooks.

Favorite things

Some of my favorite things to do are taking road trips, adventuring, taking photos of everything, shopping (which i do too much), being silly with my kids, taking walks, creating things, thrift stores, yard saling, going to the theatre, writing poetry.

Perfumes and aerosols usually give me migraines, but I do enjoy some scented candles. My favorite scents are mulberry, french vanilla, rose's and lilacs.

I like : Fairies, tiger lillies, birds, butterflies, dragons, pirates, Vintage, steampunk

Animals: Owls, Wolves, Horses, Otters, All big cats, Panda bears, Rabbits, \

I love receiving handmade things that i can tell someone really put their heart into.

I like inspirational quotes, but please nothing religious.

My fave washi tape is black with roses on it, but I have run out. So I would really love to receive some of that if anyone would like to send some!

I also love steampunk/industrial print washi and Galaxy washi.


i don't really care for dark chocolate, black licorice, coconut candies. i really don't want any religous things, although angels are alright, just no crosses or biblical quotes please.

i'm allergic to latex.

I like kind of dark things, but I don't like graphic or gorey things.

Comment: Thanks for the poem. I certainly understand the idea and need to try to fence off emotions. It ca be hard to deal with so many. I love how the paper background looks like a fence, too.

Comment: Hello Nikki! Thank you for the cute letter! The envie and paper was so pretty! And the wax seal was a lovely touch! I really hope you're doing better these days, it's a hard time right now so be kind to yourself.:) Btw- I was homeschooled my whole life and I am very grateful to my parents for that decision. It wasn't always a good time, but in the end I am so much better off for it. I hope that encourages you. :)
