About Me

📨I send swaps ASAP and 🙋🏻‍♀️I promise to rate as soon as I receive. 👛 If there is ever postage owing please let me know so I can make it right. 📫 I mark a swap sent once it has been dropped at the post office, and if for some reason you have not received a swap from me in a reasonable time, please contact me before rating and allow for me to send a replacement or work something out. ⏳I have waited over a month (more than once this year) to receive or for a delivery on an item mailed even a state away, please be patient with the current mail system.💌

Happy Swapping!🌟

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. And I sell Color Street as a side hustle and LOVE it!
my partner and I love getting outdoors and we 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, he 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 embellishments, tags, junk/art journals & altered books, greeting cards, stationary, envelopes, etc. I enjoy rubber stamping (I love stamped images), 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 (I LOVE playing cards and game cards), and modge podge, and I am branching out more into altered books and junk/art journaling.🎨

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 "Fierce, Free, and full of Fire" by Jen Hatmaker (Oh my goodness did I LOVE this book!), "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, bird, bees, and butterflies.🌷🌼🐦🐝🐛 🌿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 seasons are Spring & Summer. I love the sunshine, the longer days, and the flowers.🌞

☕I love coffee and tea, both hot and iced coffee 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 also enjoy ephemera, cute napkins, lace and fabric scraps, charms, and other goodies to jazz up junk journals with.💪😁

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

EXTRAS

EXTRA: 💁Besides collecting craft supplies, I also collect squished pennies👛, Stickers (washi & flakes), Stamps (rubber & postage)💌, National Forest memorabilia🌲Smokey the Bear 🐻, and anything stars⭐. I also love sparkly and glittery things, and postcards.🌌. Glittery things are always welcome in the mail.💌

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 love all colors, greens & nature colors are my favorite, but pastels are my least favorite, especially purples.🎠 ⛄I don't prefer the cold & short days of winter, but I do enjoy snow people & winter theme things but not a lover of Santa stuff, I know he is happy & jolly but for me Christmas is about the birth of Jesus not Santa Clause.❄🎄 Have a beautiful day and happy swapping!🌟

WISH LIST

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! Thanks so much for all the goodies! Yes, they will come in handy for my junk journal. I actually use to fill out the phone message forms, was a secretary "back in the day". Worked at The Country Club of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri ~ loved that job! Hope all is well in Oregon, I hear you are going to get a horrible snow storm, it's coming our way on Monday. Stay safe & warm ~ Judy
Response: So happy to hear that you will be able to use the goodies.😊. That storm is here but so fortunately we are about 1-2 hours away from its zone, so we just have rain and normal winter weather. I am so happy right now to not be living in Portland.😎

Comment: Thank you so much for deciding to join the swap, Heather! I appreciate the L❤VE-ing efforts that you put into this envie of goodness too. The way that you stamped the outside made it so fun to find in my mail today and I thoroughly loved sorting through all the tiny heart bits - my faves are the paper hearts that you made and this itty bitty snail sticker! OMG! So cute! Makes me smile every time I look at it! I am excited to try a new crafty technique with this pink ribbon that you sent too - I saw a video of someone that sprayed it with water before embossing it to make a cool looking background for ATCs....I'm off to try my hand at it now - yay for fun creativity! 😊 Thanks again for brightening my day. I too look forward to many more swapping adventures with you!
Response: It makes my heart happy that this swap brought you joy. I would love to hear how the ribbon experiment went.😁
