a little about me

*As of July 2019 I'm taking a little step back from swapping as much as I have been. My Golden Retriever, Bullet, has been diagnosed with inoperable sarcoma. I just want to spend as much time as I can with him before I have to say goodbye. It's very hard for me because I inherited him from my uncle when he passed suddenly just last November, during the very same week that my previous dog passed, also from cancer. I'm still dealing with the grief from that. Bullet was like an angel brought into my life when I needed him most. We helped each other grieve. But when he goes, I don't know what I'll do.

Anyway, I won't be swapping for a while, besides maybe one or two here and there if I need a distraction. Thank you for reading*

Hello! My name is Bonnie. I'm 27 and live in a mid-sized city in Ohio with my boyfriend, 2 super cuddly cats and 1 sweet and mischievous senior Golden Retriever.

I'm a very low-key, introverted type. I love to read, paint, spend time in nature, learn whenever I can, and play with my pets. I like to lean into the weird and quirky side of life. I am entertained by the odd and absurd.

I'm relatively new to swap-bot. I've always had a penchant for collecting little scraps, odds and ends -- ever since I was a little girl. I never knew what I was saving it all for, but I think I might have found it! :) I love to create for others, and I have lots of beautiful & interesting stuff to share!

my favorite colors are purple, blue, green and black. I don't dislike any specific color. I really like holo/glitter/sparkly stuff too! my favorite aesthetics are vintage, botanical, oddities, and psychedelic.

when it comes to postcards, I prefer handmade if possible. I love to see others' creativity, and my goal is to have my entire fridge covered in beautiful postcards.

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful ATC. I'm sorry for the delay in rating. I had thought I had done so when I received.

Comment: WOW!!!! I LOVED what you sent me! I loved your beautiful collection of stamps and the way you decorated the outer envie, I loved the wax seal with the dried flowers and I adored the way you made little packets of goodies and include so many wonderful items! Thank you for all that you put into this swap! When I saw the two-colored swirl wax seal with gold highlights I thought "Vivian-inspired!" and then I read your note and learned that it really was! Again, a million Swap-Bot hearts to you!!!
Comment: Loved it! Thanks so much!!

Comment: Thank you for the grapefruit "chunk" - I love it! Yes, we do have much in common :) (And I would love a Nancy Drew pc if the opportunity presents itself!)

Comment: Thanks for the neat chunk. Nice art on many beer cartons. I looked at your profile and saw that you listed several bands I enjoy so I am going to check out those I am not familiar with. I always enjoy new music so thanks in advance for that.

Comment: Sorry for the delay in rating but my Mom was just given mail from the PO going back to April and your swap was in there. Thanks for the tea. The blueberry looks delicious. And that notecard is beautiful.

Comment: Oh-my-goodness, Bonnie! I love everything you sent me - thank you so much! The old yearbook pages are exactly the type I've been jonesing for and the other papers are just the style I love to collage with (that tabloid alien page is too much and will have to go in my next "favorite things" gluebook 😂). Your polymer clay magnet is gorgeous and arrived perfectly intact. I've got it up on the filing cabinet in my craftroom so I can see it all the time. Thanks, again! Let's exchange again sometime. 🤓👍

Comment: Bonnie, what a wonderful package you put together for me. The beautiful stamps and extra postcard are lovely but you really spoilt me with the steampunk goodies. They're fantastic! And yes, we're having a gorgeous autumn.

Comment: Thank you!
Comment: I really love the zentangle you created! Thank you for sharing your message about Youngstown. I heard on the news this week about an electric car manufacturer looking into buying the plant and I really hope that everything works out for that happening! We're heavily dependent on the military here and threats to move Carriers around are scary enough for us, so I can imagine what y'all have been going through.
