About Me

LIFE: 🏕️I live in the Pacific Northwest and love the outdoors. My favorite season are spring and summer, I LOVE the longer days and warmer weather.🌲🌈

👣I'm a non-denominational Christian who prefers to not put God in a box, I just love me some Jesus, the non judgmental kind. I am fairly liberal and I do my best to love and accept all people just as they are.💓

🌱🌎I am a bit of a granola gal, this means I care about the environment, animals, and other people. ♻I LOVE recycling/up-cycling and reusing items when I can and I love thrift shopping/buying second hand. So, often when it comes to crafting I try to re-use and upcycle items if possible.

I'm in my 40's and have one cat fur baby.🐱
📖I am a bit old school and love paper over a screen, this applies to reading, planning, and crafting. 💌I love snail mail and my paper planner/bullet journal. Which I enjoy adding color to with stickers and colorful things. I also love typewriters, and typing a crisp letter with an older machine.📃

🏡I run a small wellness business with my partner, he also helps keep me sane and is my adventure buddy.
We love getting outdoors and enjoy camping, geocaching, and hiking together.🏕️

😁I try to find the good in everything and be grateful even when I am feeling overwhelmed by life. I often say, if you can't find the sunshine, be the sunshine.☀️

Favorite Crafts

CRAFTS: 💖I love crafting, I dabble in many but are a master of none.

🔰📏I currently enjoy paper crafts the most: making greeting cards, stationary, envelopes embellishments, tags, etc. I enjoy rubber stamping, using die cuts, embossing paper (dry and heat), sparkly and glittery stuff, and ephemera.

👾I also occasionally crochet small projects like jar cozies, bags, scarves, wrist warmers, and hats.

👑I enjoy beading small things too, like earrings.

👜I am a beginner with sewing so I have only made simple projects such as small bags and reusable wrapping paper/cloth.

✂I also enjoy random small projects such as painting rocks, perler beads, embroidery, mixed media, ATC's, and modge podge .🎨

ENTERTAINMENT

ENTERTAINMENT: 🎶 I enjoy most music, with the exceptions being gangsta rap, metal, and screamo, TobyMac is my favorite artist.

📚 I enjoy reading, I usually have at least one fiction and one non-fiction book going at a time. Some of my favorite books I have recently read include "Disconnected Kids" by Robert Melillo, "11/22/63" by Stephen King, :Wildflower" by Drew Barrymore, "The Safest Lies" & "All the Missing GIrls" by Megan Miranda, and "Ketofast" by Joseph Mercola.
I see myself as a lifetime learner so I enjoy absorbing true knowledge and skills.📑

🎲As for other indoor entertainment I enjoy games: board, card, dice games, and puzzles. Rumikube is my current go to game.

🎬I also enjoy many movie genera and some binge show watching. 📼 I prefer movies and shows that I feel better after watching, and ones that are not violent. 🎦Some shows I like are "This is Us". "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist", "Stranger Things", and "The Muppet Show".
🎥For movies I love documentaries (yup, nerd), comedies, dramas, and suspense. I don't have a favorite movie because there are just too many to love, but a few of my favorites include all the Muppet movies, "La La Land", "Mister Magorium's Magic Emporium", "It's a Wonderful Life", "Fantastic Mr. Fox", "Bridesmaids", and "Monster's Inc.".🎭

😍I love snail mail and I hope to provide smiles with the happy mail I may provide through these swaps.🐌💌

FAVORITES

HOBBIES: ❤️I love getting outdoors🌲, LOVE camping⛺, hiking, and geocaching. I like the beach🌊 but mountains, trees, and lakes/creeks are my favorite.🌳🌼🌌

🍓🌻I also enjoy having a small garden with fruits and vegetables in the summer, along with some flowers to attract the wildlife, and for picking. I love flowers & bees🌷🌼🐝 🌿I have MANY indoor plants and although I don't have a green thumb I love plants so I do my best to keep them alive and thriving for as long as I can.

MY FAVORITES: 💚Green is my favorite color and I also love blue. 🌎 I love earth tone colors and bright colors.

I LOVE chocolate, 🍫dark chocolate being my favorite.

🌈My favorite season is Spring and Summer. I love the sunshine, the longer days, and the flowers.🌞

☕I love coffee and tea, both hot and coffee cold is good too, but cold tea is not my favorite way to enjoy it.

💕I LOVE animals,🐾 especially Cats😻, Bison, and Bears🐻.

❤️I LOVE Kermit the Frog from the Muppets, and I enjoy Sanrio characters, especially Hello Kitty (kawaii), and stars amaze me, I love star gazing.🌠

💟I also love stickers, and have been collecting them for as long as I can remember. I love that they are little pieces of art that you can brighten things up with. I also love washi tape, it's like stickers on a roll.💪😁

🤗I love cute little things, garden gnomes, kawaii, miniatures, tiny plants/flowers, etc.

EXTRAS

EXTRA: 💁Besides collecting craft supplies, I also collect squished pennies👛, Stamps (rubber & postage)💌, National Forest memorobilia🌲and Smokey the Bear 🐻, and anything stars⭐. I also love sparkly and glittery things, and postcards.🌌

THINGS I LIKE LESS: 👿Rude humor, gore, and being startled, but I am not easily offended.🚯 I also am not a fan of onions, stevia (and all fake sweetners), and black licorice (which is tragic that it is so often found in teas). 👃I also do not like receiving mail that has been sprayed with perfume. 🍳I don't cook much, my partner is the chef in the house, so recipes I don't usually use.

📨I send my swaps ASAP, so if for some reason you do not receive a swap from me in a reasonable time PLEASE contact me before rating. I use a scale to weigh and to make sure the correct postage is added before mailing. If something doesn't arrive I would love the opportunity to re-send a replacement.📪

Have a beautiful day and happy swapping!🌟

WISH LIST: 💗Kermit the frog and the Muppets memorabilia 🐈🐾Cat anything, I also love animals in general especially Bison, Bears, Butterflies, Bees, & Birds🐦 (apparently I love several animals starting with B). 🐌💌All things snail mail...

Comment: Hi Heather I enjoyed reading your profile. I enjoy a lot of the same things. Being outside is one of them - I LOVE being outside. Unfortunately , living Minnesota does curtail that activity for a significant portion of the year :-( I also enjoy calligraphy and watercolor. I enjoy both, am not very good at either, but still enjoy them. I love to draw. I draw something pretty much every day. SB has really helped me get better at it, realizing that every sketch won't be a masterpiece and doesn't have to be! My favorite quote (atm, at least): She said she usually cried at least once every day not because she was sad, but because the world was so beautiful and life was so short. -Brian Andreas
Response: That quote is BEAUTIFUL! And it's great to just be creative, even if it is at a craft/hobby that you have not yet mastered, that is how we get better. I laugh sometimes looking back at projects I made in the past and thought were so great, but they now show my skill level has improved. Keep on crafting and growing your skills. And enjoy the great outdoors when the weather is nice.
