*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.
