About Me

Hello Swappers!

My name's Kristina and I'm lucky to live in sunny Austin, Texas!

I love swapping because you get to meet so many interesting and fun people and it's a great way to share your crafting love!

  • If there's anything in particular you would like to get from Austin, let me know! I'd be happy to see what I can do*

I like playing video games and hanging out with my family. I look like a total girly-girl but I have a hidden nerdy side. I live with my boyfriend and our siberian husky. We dance, we sing, overall we have a lot of fun. If you want to know anything else about me, lemme know :D

My Favorite Crafts and Hobbies

  • Polymer clay sculpting
  • smash booking
  • travel magnets - I collect these!
  • watercolor
  • writing
  • acrylic painting
  • dogs
  • photography
  • knitting
  • needle felting
  • traveling
  • colors: royal purple, light yellow, light teal, orange
  • anything that's Mexican or Peruvian themed
  • tea:
    • Herbal
    • Chai
    • Green tea - especially matcha
    • anything tropical flavored (mangoes, pineapple, coconut)
  • Coffee:
    • the bolder, the better!

Favorite Books and Music

I don't read a lot anymore which is a tragedy. But here are some of my favorite books:

  • Chronicles of Narnia
  • A Series of Unfortunate Events
  • The Basic Eight
  • The Secret History
  • The Deptford Trilogy
  • Anything by Kurt Vonnegut

I'm open to any kind of music and will listen to anything once. Currently I'm on this weird electronica-type (think M83 and Ellie Golding) and folksy (think Decemberists/Lumineers) kick. I also like Lana del Rey for some reason haha.

Happy Mail

These are things I love getting! - Artsy postcards or postcards with animals on them - Fridge Magnets from your country/state - stickers - Yarn - Painting supplies - 35mm film - Kawaii: Most everything Mind Wave I also love San-x: Sentimental Circus and Kutusita Nyanko Q-Lia: Little Fairy Tale stuff - Anything with Dogs, Foxes, Hedgehogs, or Owls on it - Smash book stuff - snow globes - Tea - I really love tropical flavors and matcha green tea - candy - not a huge fan of gummies, but I love chocolate - especially Milka brand with crackling candy in it. I also really like those wafer spaceship looking things that have tart sugar in them lol

Unhappy Mail

These are things I would rather not get!

  • Gothic or dark stuff
  • Picture Frames
  • Candles
  • obviously nothing broken or dirty - if you wouldn't want me to send it to you, don't send it to me! :)
  • oh and in case you didn't know, it gets super hot here... between May and October pretty much everything melts. While I don't mind so much if it's something that's in a contained package, I have had a couple issues with lotions and soaps that have melted and ruined most of the rest of the package :(


I've hesitated for a while to write this ... but I will because I have seen this on so many other profiles and want to really bring the message home. I swap for fun ... and that's it. It's a very low key hobby for me. That being said, I put a lot of time into my swaps despite working 10-14 hour days as a teacher. If there is an issue with your swap, message me before giving me a cruddy rating. I think few people realize how damaging one bad rating can be.

Comment: I always worry about swappers when I don't receive a swap and my messages aren't responded to. I hope all is well and that you've just decided to take a break from swapping.

Comment: Kristina, I hope you are well. I contacted you a few times to let you know I did not receive the PC...you responded to one of my messages and said you would resend. It doesn't look like you have logged in since Nov. 11..I am rating a 1 but please contact me so that we can resolve this...I will change this rating once I receive something. Thank you, Stacy

I was wondering if you got my postcard for the swap 'postcrossing obsessed 22? I sent you a text asking if you got it but forgot to rate me. If you didn't get it let me know and I will re send. Thanks.

I am slowly opening the layers of my kawaii matryoshka package. Thanks ever so much for your generous addition of a whole sticker sack and a new pad of Fairy Tale mini memos. And extra stickers! I hope your envelope is as nice as mine.

I'm so glad you like the idea! Maniac Mansion will forever have my heart, I rank it at the top alongside Earthbound and Chrono Trigger. :) I haven't played day of the tentacle although I've been thinking about it recently. :)
