Overall Favorites

Hi, My name is Ginger! Below are a few things about me. I am fairly new to Swap-bot, but am really enjoying my experience so far! 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 and Foxes too)

Black lab dogs

Halloween, especially all those scrolly Victorian macabre motifs with crows and bats and witch’s hats

Bullet journals and Smash books

Arts & Crafts, Mission style, Art Deco, Frank Lloyd Wright, Macintosh Roses

Flowers & plants & cacti

Tea, teatime, hygge and fika (tea type: I love green tea varieties the most, but anything yummy is welcome)

Quilts & fabric

Farm life, homesteading, and cowboys

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 (especially vintage)

Hats (like those big brimmed and boldly decorated ones that are worn to tea and derby’s and royal weddings)

Rolodex/memorydex paper crafting

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!

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! I love paper, die cuts, stickers, gems, and such that help me to create. I don't tend to just pass along bits, but instead create them into something new for my swaps.

Paper, envelopes, tags in "earthy" colors: browns, dusky blue, twilight teal, olive green. I have so many bright colors, but use up all my darker tones so quickly!

Books, Movie, TV

Although I do read a bunch, I listen to a ton of books! Examples are...

Mary Russell series (& other Sherlock related stories)(really Victorian mysteries overall)

Outlander series

Harry Potter 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

Anything with Kenneth Branagh or Emma Thompson in it, especially Shakespearean

The Muppets

Gilmore Girls

About Me

I’m new to this swap-bot thing, so would love whatever pointers you can give! I love to be organized and productive, but so appreciate the wildly creative!

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

Would prefer NOT to receive: religious or political themed material. I have no kids or youngsters in my family, so please skip the kids' stuff.

Comment: Stunning!!! Each one is unique. I appreciate the time you put into them. I have the same dies for the honey jar, I hope you don’t mind if I copy that idea. I even love how you presented them. Hope to see you in a future swap! I would love to do a private embellishment swap with you if your’re ever interested. Check out my Instagram Mindy82671 and see if you like my crafting style. Happy swapping.
