About Me

I haven’t swapped in awhile ... I’m still here. 😊 Here is to a Happy 2021!

Hiya, friends!

I'm Wendy and I have a washi tape addiction. I am a spunky court advocate and I work as a CPS social worker. I have been married 25+ years. I volunteer for the food bank and work with the homeless coalition in my area. I live on a homestead and look forward to raising some animals soon. I have a sarcastic, quick wit and enjoy friendly fun banter. I love cards and quotes that resemble my remarks. snort. I enjoy kayaking, hiking, and extreme sports and events. We are a patriotic family -so anything patriotic/folk art americana is appreciated. We are a non-smoking household.

I belong to many groups because I like variety.

I am explaining my loves here in my profile so you have a good sense of what I enjoy. It's just a guide, not requirements. There is nothing better then receiving a gift that someone put effort and energy into creating for me. I enjoy reading profiles and sending a few extras to make people smile. That's why I swap. The surprise is fun. I hope you send me a few lines and let me into your world a little if you are my partner. If you are reading this and see a swap I might enjoy, please let me know.

I save stamps from swaps, if possible try to use stamps. xoxo. I love decorated envelopes, they make me smile.

I enjoy private swaps- don't hesitate to ask.

I am learning to become as self-reliant as possible. I love canning, dehydrating, gardening, quilts, traveling, scrapbooking, candle making, kayaking, kickball, home improvement/DIY projects, baking, and cooking. I love my perennial beds. They are filled with yellow, red, pink, blues and pops of orange. I enjoy annual seeds to bring life to my perennial beds that are filled with metal stars.

Handmade cards for me to send

Labels of all kinds

Address labels with my addy - I can’t get my 12x12 printer to do them

Looking for an old wooden box style rolo holder... Swap, trade, or purchase

Blank Recipe Cards

Small wooden spools

Gelli plate

Tissue paper patterns- clothing or any other (any shape, size, or color). Looking for white tissue with dime size black polka dots.

I love tried & true recipes that you love.

Washi tape rolls or samples: My favorites are chevrons, stars, checks, houndstooth, polka dots, hearts, and stripes.I cannot find the small triangle pattern or airmail style washi and would enjoy some. Prefer no kid/disney/cartoon style if possible.

Handmade decorated envelopes

Star stickers

Have any slams, zines, friendship books, twinchie, or inchie that you could share? I would like to see one in person.

I have some fun items and ideas in my amazon and etsy links above for reference.

 I love stars 


I am an adventurous eater. The stranger the establishment the better. I like road trips and stopping along the way to eat someplace I haven't been before.

I LOVE RECIPES. My favorite recipes to receive are YOUR family favorites. Tried and true recipes. I have a soup and stew addiction. I'm also looking for some cold pasta salad style recipes.

I love my crock pot and enjoy community cookbooks.

I love to dehydrate, waterbath and pressure can.

I like to try all kinds of snacks and treats (nothing homemade please). Things local to you would be of interest and I would truly appreciate it. I would love to receive dip mixes, soup mixes, fruit soup mixes, and spices. We like spicy food. I "live" in my kitchen so anything from your state or country that you think would interest me would be a welcome surprise.

I like coffee- breakfast blend, mild &medium roasts. My favorites are vanilla, caramel, and mocha flavors. Love them! I am addicted to my K cup Keurig, I use the basket insert so I can use regular ground coffee as well.

Hot chocolate is a must in my world. YUMMO.

I am a gum fanatic. All kinds except clove.

Altoids. (Love to repurpose the tins)

Orange tic tacs... yum.. Love the containers also.

I enjoy a good cup of tea and tend to lean towards more spicy orange based kinds.

Caramel and nuts in chocolate are my favorite. I eat all kinds of chocolate- dark is delicious. I love orange flavored dark chocolate-yummy. I LOVE peppermint bark. Yes please to licorice, tootsie rolls, lemon heads, jolly ranchers, skittles, bottlecaps, laffy taffy, pop rocks, starburst. I truly enjoy taffy style candy items. I love cola flavored gum and candy.

Pumpkin flavored anything is a love of mine. Yummmmo


*PLEASE NO musk smelling perfumes or lotions. (I Love fruit scents)

*I do not use dollar store, lisa frank or teaching/reward style stickers of any kind.

*I don't enjoy real looking picture stickers, lipstick, shoe, or clothing style sticky note pads.

*I am not into neon colored anything.

*No Knights, dragons/mythical, baby items, graduation stuff

*If I am in a smashbook or scrapbooking swap- please NO magazine cut outs.

*I do not decorate my house cutesy country style. It's more primitive, folk art style. See my Pinterest boards for ideas.

PLEASE include with your swap, a note with your swapbot name and the name of the swap so I am able to rate.

Thanks for reading, hope to swap soon.


Comment: You'll never believe that this card has only just arrived!!! Thanks very much. I'll save it to decorate my living room with this Christmas. lol
Response: I have had several packages be sent before the due dates and arrive many months later. I don't get it. I am elated it finally arrived! Whoot whoot! It's strange because when I look at tracking it shows it arrived a month ago. LOL. Thanks so much for letting me know. Jingle all the way...🌲

Comment: Wendy! I've just received your mail and it really made my day (my week too)! It was supposed to be a resend of a bunch of samples for the missing original, but it turned out to be a delightful package! I'm sorry the original never turn up and it seemed you were late, but you made up for it by so much more! Thank you very much for checking my profile and putting together a wonderful mail for me ♥ Everything will certainly be put to good use!

Comment: Hi Wendy!!! I got the envelopes today!!! They're awesome!! I love the papers you used and the size of the envelopes. Thanks for the extra ones!! Hope you had a great New Year and thanks so much again!!! xoxo
Comment: Oh, wow... Such an amazingly special and thoughtful swap! The pincushion is beautiful, and may in fact be too pretty to use. The thought of poking pins into it just doesn't seem right! :/ As for Spike (he looks like a Spike to me), he is one cool dude and now I have my very own sock monkey. :D Also, I'm going to enjoy using the nautical cards you included! Thank you so much for a heart-warming and incredible swap, Wendy! (P.S: I'm definitely up for a private swap - will PM you shortly!)

Snoopy Christmas

Thank you SO much for all the wonderful gifts you sent for the 12 Days of Christmas! I was impatient and opened everything at once! LOL! The travel themed scrapbook was so generous of you and too many scrapping goodies to list here! I really appreciate the effort you put into this swap... especially taking the time to adjust the included recipes to my vegetarian lifestyle. Thank you for being such a kind and giving swap partner! I hope you received an equally wonderful package to open! Big hugs and a speedy recovery! -Joy
