Lucky Parcels and Themed Swaps Group

Howdy there!

My name is Susan, I'm cool and awesome.

I have a sexy weirdo husband named Brenden.

We have a lovely little kitty cat furbaby named Cakey. She loves to play fetch and enjoys lots of belly rubbins.

Cakey the Cat

I like spooky things, and super cute things. Super cute spooky things too. :P!!

Most people don't know this about me, but I suffer from OCD, depression, and general anxiety. It makes making friends difficult, so I would love to make friends with a couple people here that have some similar interests as me and become pen pals. I would love to communicate with others that love Halloween as much as I do. :) It would be nice to send each other happy mail to encourage each other and brighten our days. Age doesn't matter to me. PM me if you're interested.

Favorite Music

Oingo Boingo, Sufjan Stevens, Iron and Wine, The Decemberists, The Beatles, STYX, Margot and the Nuclear So & So's, Tom Waits, Weird Al, Squirrel Nut Zippers, most 80s music, and I also love Psychobilly music. My husband is a musician and I love his music. :)

Favorite Books

I am a fan of the Harry Potter series. The Hunger Games. Steven King is great. I did like the Watchmen graphic novel, and I love Ghost World. I like some underground comics.

Favorite Movies

Arachnophobia, The Shape of Water, Get Low, Ghost World, The Dark Knight, Stranger than Fiction, Lost in Translation, UP, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, Harry Potter series, Hunger Games series, Coraline, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Benny and Joon, Bridesmaids, The Heat, Hocus Pocus, Trick 'r Treat, Muppet Treasure Island, Spy, Big Eyes, The Skeleton Twins, Practical Magic, good horror movies, awesomely bad horror movies, Tim Burton movies, and I loooove Hayao Miyazaki films! I also love watching movies with RIFFTRAX!

Favorite Television

The Handmaid's Tale, Stranger Things, MST3K, Roseanne, 3rd Rock from the Sun, NCIS, Bob's Burgers, King of the Hill, The Simpsons, Futurama, Monk, Cupcake Wars, Chopped, American Horror Story, Supernatural, My Little Pony, South Park, Portlandia, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and I feel quite nostalgic about 90's Nickelodeon.

Favorite Crafts

Creating art, sewing, paper crafts, stamp making, jewelry making, baking, painting, doodlin', upcycling. I want to get into making mini zines. I love trying new crafts! If anyone is a sewing machine master and wants to help instruct me on how to use mine that would be awesome. I think I just have a plain ol' Singer.


Halloween, crafts, art, vintage stuff, baking, cupcakes, gnomes, mushrooms, CATS, pumpkins, willow trees, OWLS, monsters, ghosties, witches, kawaii stuff, poop emoji, tiny figures, children's books, creepy-cute things, skeleton keys, long necklaces, stuffies...

I LOVE Gudetama the lazy egg!:3

Halloween is my favorite holiday. Please do not give me Halloween items in swaps for other holidays.

My favorite color is PURPLE.

I love purses, tote bags, and wristlets! Handmade is welcome!

SKULLS and SKELETONS are awesome!


Scents I love: PATCHOULI, apples, anything deep and sensual, fruity, "Fall" scents like pumpkins, etc.


Not a fan of floral scents.

Do not send me plastic foodware like plates or cups.

Please do not send me earrings, I don't really wear them.

I wouldn't like to receive tiny kid's toys like bubbles and such, I don't have children. Unless those things are vintage and/or creepy.

Please, no Disney items.

Please do not send me used items unless the swap is for vintage items.

Please don't send me Halloween items in swaps for holidays other than Halloween, I like to keep those holidays separate. :)

Comment: Thank you Susan! Wow what a fun package to open!!!! you went all out!! Love it! My girls are having a field day looking through everything too! Thank you Thank you!!!! xx <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 ~ xo Gabi
Response: You're very welcome! I have a LOT of Halloween stuff in my stash so I am happy to share. :)
Comment: Thank you so much! I've never tried to make my own cosmetics (I really should have tried before now since I admire all the Lush items in the city, but usually can't enjoy them cause they use way too many heavy scents for my nose and skin). I never even considered making myself something similar with a lighter scent! This will be so much fun! Looking forward to trying lotion bars! Great swap--take care!
Response: Yes, you can use as much or as little of the essential oil that you want in the bars. They are very moisturizing. :) I'm going to get another little package out to you soon since your package to me was just so amazing! :3
Comment: Thank you so much! What wonderful items! It’s all going to be used! So excited when I saw that box in the mail 😁 thank you!!!
Response: You're very welcome, glad you like it. Happy Spring!
Comment: Susan, thank you so very much for the wonderful swap! I absolutely love the journal and everything you included with it! You put so much thought and effort into this! Wish I could give you five hearts! Thank you again!

Comment: Thank you! I love everything! :)
Comment: Thanks for swap.
Comment: Having a very bad day, (realizing one of our cats used the artificial tree as a sprinkling post--and now we need to go purchase another tree)..... I decided to open your box this evening. And I sure glad I did! I love everything. I plan to use one of the bath bombs tonight to relax. And my husband already placed the coffees on agenda to try in the morning. And I really needed the chocolates. The rose candle can certainly calm me down and take me to a spring day. You really did a wonderful job and I can see you put a lot of thought into it.. Thank you so very much! Happy Holidays.

Thanks for the washi tape for the 10 gifts of Yule! It matches perfectly with the cat toys I unwrapped for Mozzie!

So I know it's not Yule, but I have a migraine, so I opened my first package from the 10 Yule gifts swap. Sparkly silver garland! It's really awesome, thank you. I don't know where I'm going to stick it, but since I'm lacking in holiday cheer this year, it's definitely going to go up somewhere so I can enjoy it. Thank you!
