Wife, mother, self employed, animal lover (12+ years large animal rescue in US). Now a professional pet sitter 4+ years.
Kindness is my way of life, not an act I do. I am extremely empathetic to the point of compassion fatigue. Recovering from life threatening illness.
Relocated from East Coast to Upper Midwest - ZERO in person friends. HIGHLY value old fashioned interaction with others.
HUGE history fan.
I now have a YouTube channel for my crafts and an Etsy store as well as the usual social platforms.

Favorite Quote -
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
AVID READER! I have been reading since I was about 4 years old and read as much as possible. I believe that we are always learning. I prefer to read non-fiction and prefer history (American and World) as a go to. I read in the morning before getting up and before going to bed.
Favorite books are anything about Benjamin Franklin and other historical figures. From Ancient Times to the present day.
I like anything animal friendly, I love crafting supplies, Christmas and Thanksgiving related items and Victorian themed ephemera. I like old postcards and lithography. I LOVE COFFEE but not Starbucks ...I love Caribou Coffee!!
CHRISTMAS!! and MORE CHRISTMAS STUFF - ESPECIALLY vintage Christmas ephemera.
I love acts of kindness, compassion and empathy.
CHEMICAL FRAGRANCES - They give me an instant migraine. If swapping with me please don't send anything with a fragrance and I do not send any items with fragrances or common allergens.
Anything to do with animal cruelty or abuse. I do not like smoking or anything to do with pranks on people or pets.
Everything from Classical to Metal (no screaming GWAR type stuff though ..whew). Prefer classic country and have a HUGE knowledge of musical factoids. Married to a professional musician but knowledge comes from aunt who was deeply involved in music throughout her life. She instilled the love of music and how powerful it can be.
I start, complete and send all of my swaps immediately (or as close to immediately as I can get if the partner assignments post when I am asleep lol) upon receipt of my partners information. I am prepared with supplies PRIOR to partner assignment.
I read my partners profile thoroughly, and try my very best to create a swap that I think my parter will enjoy. I then proceed with swap requirements. I am in the States so if you are not in USA my letters, pc's, or packages might take longer to get to you.
PLEASE reach out to me if you don't receive something. I go to the post office every day and mail on Sunday as well but that won't get picked up till Monday unless it is the holiday season.
I rate immediately upon receipt of your swap!
Custom embroider, paper crafts, loaded envelopes, journals and combining them all with Embroidery.
Absolutely ANYTHING Christmas or Thanksgiving....ANNNYYY TTTHHINNNG!!
