About Me


My Pinterest * * * Goodreads Account

Hello, I am Amanda!

My husband and I are both grad students who love coffee and board games! Our favorite date is sharing a latte and playing Dominion at a local coffee shop. I am extroverted and love serving others in fun ways. Over the few past years I've been learning about and growing in satisfaction and grace. I am a Christian and love talking about faith with others and learning about different views, beliefs, and cultures. I have been blessed to travel to several countries in my 24 years of life, my favorites being Japan and Germany!

I love simple and thoughtful things. ♥️ Looking forward to swapping with you!

I found the cute profile images on pinterest, they are not mine!

Craft Party!

My Style: Simple, minimal, Scandinavian, neutral colors, pastel pallets, hand made items, cozy, hygge. My pinterest is linked above. (Note: Some boards are for my work as a librarian)

Crafty Hobbies: knitting, crocheting, bullet journaling, making zines, pretty mail, crochet or leather earrings, amassing pins on pinterest, baking, home decor, hand lettering.

Crafty Supplies I Like: knitting needs (metal), yarn, embroidery thread, washi tape, pens, fineliners, stickers, stationery, paper (dotted or blank), scrapbook paper, post it notes, markers, acrylic paint, glitter, crayola supertips, ink stamps.


Books, TV, Music

I am a children's and teen librarian! I read a lot of picture, juvenile, and YA books. Some of my favorites are: The Book Thief, The Giver, The Martian, The Grapes of Wrath, Guess How Much I Love You, Where The Sidewalk Ends. I would love to hear what you are currently reading and any suggestions! My goodreads account is linked at the top of my profile. ♥️

For television I love The Office (I am one of those crazy Office fans who can't go a whole conversation without making a quote or five. Kelly is my favorite character!), Parks and Rec, Community, Gilmore Girls.

Concerning music, I like folk, classic rock, electronic, rap, and indie. I am pretty open to anything minus country. I enjoy listening to: Jon Foreman, Josh Garrels, Jack Johnson, Florence + The Machine, Twenty One Pilots, David Bowie, Mumford and Sons, Foster The People, Cage The Elephant, Passion Pit, The Killers, The Lumineers, Imagine Dragons, Coldplay, Of Monsters and Men, FUN, Lights, Owl City, Bastille, The Postal Service.

Wishlist & Dislikes

I Would Be Stoked To Receive: blank handmade stationery, letters/postcards, bookmarks, illustrations, small paintings, calligraphy quotes, funny lists, zines, pictures/Polaroids, tiny knits, coffee sleeves, washi tape, paper scraps, embellishments, pressed flowers, tea, bits from your culture, magazine pages, articles, book suggestions, yarn, twine, pens, and stickers, confetti, note cards, sticky notes, stamps, homemade soap, socks. Anything that is just cute and sweet basically!

I Would Prefer Not To Receive: anything dark or scary, political themed items or letters, sexual content.

Dislikes: Chamomile tea, lavender. That's it!


Happy Thoughts

Quality time, coffee, green tea, warm hugs and snuggles, The Office, mountains, trips, cute parties, funny socks, crunchy snacks, scones, earrings, neutral colors, pastel pallets, eco friendly things, DOGS, memes, long distant friends that check in, letters, stationery, pens, stickers, my blue fuzzy blanket, Christmas lights, Scandinavian decor, reading late at night, movies that make me cry aka 90s drama movies, traditions, making little moments special, forgiveness, grace, funny youtube videos, when people share their passions.



I've sadly been flaked on be the following people: ForgottenLore93 (Harry Potter ATC), jumplittle (Homemade bookmark), Klbbird2 (Harry Potter ATC x2).

Keeping track just for future reference. I'd love to resolve these, flaking is no fun for anyone!

Welcome to Butterfly lovers! It's great to have you here!



iowa05 on Mar 20, 2019:

I'm doing a profile bling swap about butterflies and thought I'd send some your way too! :)

"May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun, And find your shoulder to light on, To bring you luck, happiness and riches, Today, tomorrow and beyond."

I’m actually TERRIBLE at adding and rating my Goodreads. I usually use as a tool to see what others are reading but occasionally will update mine if I remember. Oy.

splendorpursuit on Jan 28, 2019:

Oh no! The link doesn’t work. The field to input your links are super specific if you want to try again. EVERYBODY goes through this when they first start here so no worries, I did too. ;)

splendorpursuit on Jan 28, 2019:

Um, you literally have my #2 dream job. I would looooove to spend my time researching and introducing kids and teens to excellent reading material. I’m totally going to stalk your Goodreads account!! :)

Ps. Thanks for hosting the dream zine swap. I’m just about to start sketching it out. Yay!

Newbie Profile Fav X-Mas Toy

Halo Amanda, greeting from Indonesia! My favourite toy that I received as a child was a 'kitchen set' toy. I really like it because I can play it with my friends. Have a merry christmas, and happy holiday!

ellecamino on Dec 11, 2018:

Greetings from Ottawa,

My favorite I received for Christmas one year was a Cabbage Patch Doll. I had wanted one for so long. My parents had bought me a knock-off for my birthday six months before but I wanted the real one. I got it. I still remember her name-Natalie.

Take care, Catina

PS-Very exciting that I am the first to post!!!!
