Overall Favorites

Hi, my name is Ginger! Below are a few things about me. If you have sent something to me, I will post my rating within a day of receiving. If I am missing something from you, I will let you know so that it can be fixed instead of rating down.

One thing I have learned is my small post office is not savvy with unusual mail, especially sending international, so if there is any issue with not enough postage, please let me know so I can make it right!

Things I am into:

  • Bees! Honeybees (I'm a bee keeper). Butterflies, dragonflies, and moths are nice too
  • Owls (Hedgehogs & Foxes too)(and sloths)(llamas are fun too)
  • Black Labrador retriever dogs
  • Halloween, especially all those scrolly Victorian macabre motifs with crows and bats and witch’s hats
  • Arts & Crafts/Mission style, Art Deco, Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Charley Harper
  • Flowers & plants & cacti
  • Tea, teatime, hygge and fika (tea type: I love green tea varieties the most, but anything yummy is welcome)
  • Quilts & fabric
  • Wooden barn quilts and hexafoos
  • Farm life, homesteading, and cowgirls/boys
  • Scottish thistle and Celtic knot motifs
  • Firefighter motifs and ephemera (adult or vintage)- being married to a firefighter, I tend to need a lot of cards and decorating with this theme!
  • Tarot
  • Catan
  • Red Sox Baseball (especially vintage)
  • Hats (like those big brimmed and boldly decorated ones that are worn to tea and horse races and royal weddings)
  • Wine/beer/liquor cardboard coasters or vinyl stickers
  • Vintage sewing patterns/ephemera
  • Vintage french signs, especially involving haute couture or la patisserie
  • Paper dolls
  • Snow flakes (white, silver, gold)

Favorite Colors: TEAL, plum, olive, sage, navy, cinnamon, honey (fall palette)

I love all things crafty! Started sewing as a child and have never stopped. Clothes, quilts, purses, collages, embroidery. I love buying fabric and imaging the possibilities.

Love all things paper crafty too - cards, gift packaging, scrapbooking, bullet journaling. Just getting into the use of stamps and dies for my paper art.

I love using botanicals and essential oils in making homemade lotions, balms, scrubs and masks.

Cooking and baking. I especially enjoy baking bread and meal prepping. Recipes are always welcome!

I decorate my living space for different holidays throughout the year with a small tree, pillows & quilts, candles, and such for each theme: Victorian valentines - Celtic St patty’s - Bunnies and butterflies Spring - Americana 4th of July - Honeybees - Halloween vintage - Winter solstice of green with white snowflakes


My wishlist of things to receive: Honestly, I really enjoy a well-curated package of fun. If you've put effort into a theme or color scheme, maybe put a little creativity of your own into the mix, I will love it! I put a lot of effort into making my swaps something amazing to open, and hope everyone else does the same!

I love things made by YOU - this is the way to my heart. I love handmade cards, PCs, ATCs, flipbooks, pockets/folders, embellishments, and long letters about who you are! I also really love a well-decorated envelope!

In the section above are my "themes" I tend to use in my decorating and card making, so if you have something that fits those, great!
In the themes above, I love

  • paper
  • die cuts (store bought or homemade)
  • ephemera (printed is ok)
  • stickers
  • stamped images
  • washi

and such things that help me to create. I often like to create something new with what I receive in my swaps.

I love all the deeply saturated "earthy" fall colors: browns, dusky blue, twilight teal, olive green, cinnamon, wine, honey.

Glassine envelopes, clear sleeves for ATCs, handmade envelopes mailing size, fun recipe cards.

Books, Movie, TV

I read a bunch, and I listen to a ton of books! I love stories that lift me up or offer up vivid descriptions of far off places. Right now I am listening to the Royal Spyness series by Rhys Bowen and reading Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier. Examples of series I love that are widely known...

  • Mary Russell series (& other Sherlock related stories)(really Victorian & early 20th century British mysteries overall)
  • Outlander series (and all the novellas in between)
  • Harry Potter series
  • The Witches Daughter series
  • Harley Merlin series

I am not a huge TV and Movie person, but certainly have my favorites that I watch over and over:

  • Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
  • The Crown
  • All the HP movies
  • Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat
  • Downton Abbey
  • The Muppets
  • Gilmore Girls

About Me

I live in eastern Colorado, USA - Enneagram 5 - INTJ - Slytherin house - Virgo

Would prefer NOT to receive: religious or political themed material. I don't really need any decorated clothespins...I've received so many and don't have a use yet. I have no kids or youngsters in my family, so please skip the kids' stuff.

Comment: WOWOW love it all thank you
Comment: Great goodies!!
Comment: Great swap! Thank you SO so much!
Comment: so fun opening
Comment: These note cards are great! I was actually starting to get low on blank notecards, so I will definitely put them to good use - or pass them along. Lately I've enjoyed seeing things more than keeping them, so its great to receive such nice cards knowing I'll have someone, in the future, to send them to, rather than just sitting in a stationery box that I don't use enough!
Comment: Thank you for my favorite kind of swap!! I too am a water baby!! I love the card and presentation..awesome! The fishies are too cute. The postcard and notecard are so pretty! Great swap. Hope we can do one like this again soon!P.S. I am an artist...I did paint the envelope. I have several 16X20's of the beach and one is in a thrift store for sale, I love doing beach ATC's

Comment: Lovely card, great enclosure. Thank you for a cheerful swap!!

Thank you for the PL backings from my LSRUS October wishlist. I just got it today but it's postmarked October 19th so it apparently took a slight detour on its way. I need a little pick me up today though so it was perfect timing.

phillaine on Sep 20, 2020:

for the red-hot variety of delightful surprises! It was extra-special and I appreciate the time and care you put into it especially for me. The Victorian rose stickers are particularly lovely, and the " ♥ ENJOY ♥ " stamped images are a new favorite. Thanks again for your kindness.
