About Me

Update...I am having some problems with my postal carrier. He has delivered my mail to other addresses but most importantly skipped picking up outgoing mail from my mailbox. I usually take my mail to the P.O. but occasionally have to mail from home. Please let me know if you don’t receive a swap from me as I always send. Also, I rate when I receive!

Winter appears to be here as I can’t wear shorts or flip flops any longer. As sad as I am about that, I do like decorating for the winter holidays and seeing my family. I love draping garland, hanging banners, etc. to show the season is here.

My life thus far... I am an eclectic soul with much love for my family and unending love for my daughter who was diagnosed on the Autism spectrum at an early age. I support those with disabilities and the desire for our society to be more accepting of their conditions. Human behavior intrigues me and I enjoy learning new techniques and curriculum in the education field. I completed my teacher certification last Fall. College is very addictive and I have a desire to pursue another degree. My husband and I relocated and built a new home last February. I have yet to open every box. For shame! I am mentally drained as I had to leave my family behind to move, but I am so fortunate to be able to travel back and visit.

I am extremely dedicated to friends, family, paper crafts, my faith, and Yelping.

We just adopted a puppy! We are in heaven with our sweet Oreo, who is a bischonpoo. I am obsessed with buying her toys, jackets, treats, and bows. Eeek, it’s like a baby in the house. All love.


My favorites:

I especially like handmade items over mass produced.

Love unique handmade jewelry: birds, crosses, hearts, or pretty dangles.

Prayer cards with Psalms or uplifting words.

Love farmhouse style.

Love junk journals.

Love items with birds because daughter's nickname is J-bird.

Interests include traveling, meeting people, adapting to cultural surroundings, and reading.

I have been on a huge Disney kick the last year with three visits! Christmas and birthday's are much more magical there. Countdown is less than 120 days until we go again.

One of my fave places to go to is New Orleans and adore Cajun food and listening to Jazz.

Also a beach lover! Usually go to Myrtle Beach with family but love Turks and Caicos, Aruba, and Pinel Island. The feel of sand on my toes is heaven! Prayers for all those affected by Irma.

Music is a huge range from 80's, Jazz, Pop, Rock, ALternative, holiday, Christian, gospel, and Blues.

Favorite flower is a gerber daisy, love the pink shades!

Favorite Television: Younger, Power, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Outlander, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Walking Dead, Shameless, Luther, Tha Man in the High Castle, Goliath, Marvel series like Luke Cage, oh wow! That's a lot of Tv! Also too much on the Food Network and Cooking channels.

Books: I read fiction and non fiction.

My house decor: farmhouse style with mosly grey, black, and beige.

I love to bake! I like making cookies, cakes, brownies, lemon bars, Hamantashen,, bread, and cupcakes. I have a sweet tooth.

Love chocolate but trying to quit. :)

Favorite scents are Clinique Happy Heart, Philosophy Amazing Grace and Pure Grace.
Love Philosophy lotions and soaps, BBW vanilla bean body cream or any of their nourishing hand soap that isn't too floral or musky. Also love Gold Bond healing hands cream.

Not one to do my nails often. Only in the Spring and Summer. So unglamorous.

Favorite beverage in morning is coffee in my Keurig. Tazo Zen green tea, Lemon zinger, Starbucks Breakfast blend, and other medium roast coffees.

Not so crazy about

and really do not want any of these items: -anything Neon, -reward stickers or kid flake stickers -pony beads, -shaped buttons, -fibers used to knit -stuffed animals -highly fragrant/ incense

Not crazy about smoke infused items.


-cool or funny postcards -glassine bags in any size -unused postage -fave holidays are Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day -hair ties/bands, so I can pull my hair back -opaque or square shaped sequins -doggie hair bows, collars, or accessories because my husband doesn’t want me to buy -uplifting quotes -washi tape -die cuts for Flipbooks -address labels for me!!! -artsy or cute mail art stamps for envelopes -metal die cuts for Evolution -vintage ephemera, ❤️ playing cards -clear stickers with phrases or words -pattern papers with printed words -handmade stamps

I pledge to rate!

I strive to rate my swaps and hope those receiving mine will too! I always send my swaps on time and enjoy sending happy mail all the world. If you would like a private swap, please PM me. :)

Also, my motto is be nice or just don’t swap.

I love to read my partners profiles and discover about them when I send a swap. I take pride in what I send out and always send out on time. If for some reason you don’t receive from me, please contact me. Case in point... I recently had a swap from last year finally arrive in July. Crazy!

Comment: Thanks for the card and the tags. Unfortunately, the card got semi-eaten by the post office, but arrived here with only a corner chewed off. It looks like it was gnawed by an angry badger. Susan (brooklynbunch)
