HELLO

I will try to keep spoilers off my craft Instagram (link above) but it is possible that I will post pictures before you receive the package so look at your own risk!

About Me


Hi, my name is Jenny!

I joined Swap-Bot years ago, but had to give it up because of time & mailbox issues. I solved my missing mail issue by switching to a PO Box. Since I am the only one with access there is no more worry of roommates miss placing my mail. Although I have not entirely solved the time issue, there just never seems to be enough of that stuff, I have decided I need to better prioritize activities that make me happy for my mental health. (I might be an overly anxious workaholic)

I am in my late twenties (trying to enjoy every last minute of it). I work a full time boring office job at a tech-based company. My schooling and passion is in wedding/event planning. I stay involved in weddings whenever I can. Currently I am building an informative blog/website that I hope to have fully functional by February. For now, I will be focusing on the history of wedding traditions and how to refresh them for the modern bride.

I love to travel and don't feel I have very deep roots in any one place. I was born and raised in California, I went to school in Arkansas, and currently reside in Georgia.

Likes

I love new things that I have never seen or heard of before, so random is welcomed!
.
Themes

  • Dinosaurs!
  • Space
  • All things Vintage and Retro (love cameos, the 20s, the 50s, the 90s, and much more)
  • I love Alice and all her many adventures in Wonderland with a passion! Anything Alice/Wonderland inspired or related [such as black & white, floral, fun/crazy, whimsical, keys, tea cups/pots, etc.] brings me great joy
  • Cameras (my grandfather was a photographer and he taught be the love of the art)
  • Classic Video games (Tetris, Zelda, Tomb Raider, Mario, Pac-man, etc)
  • Coca-Cola & American Airlines memorabilia (the companies my father & grandfather work[ed] for)
  • Cars (both new & old, I grew up loving to "help" my father work on his cars) I love Teslas and super geek out every time I see one
  • Pumpkins (I love them so much, don't even care if it's "basic")
    .
    Patterns
  • Stripes
  • Polka Dots
  • Checkered
  • Chevron
    .
    Deep down I am a big nerd!
  • I find math fun!!
  • Superheroes are frequently found on my television
  • I love to cook & bake, and quite often my kitchen doubles as a laboratory for both scientific and edible experiments
    .

Flavors

  • Pumpkin!
  • Pie over cake ANY day

Teas

  • Flavored Black, White, Green, Chai & Herbal teas
  • I love citrus flavors (lemon, orange, etc)
  • Mint is always a favorite
  • Sweet/dessert flavors

My mother and sister also love teas, so even if I don't absolutely love it they might or I'll re-swap, so really don't stress too much about tea flavors.

Candies

  • Peanut butter!
  • Coconut
  • I'm not a huge chocolate person, but I do love dark chocolate, peanut butter + chocolate, and mint + chocolate
    .

Dislikes

Do NOT like

  • Camouflage of any form!
  • Hearts (a few won't kill me, but I tend not to buy anything for myself with hearts on it unless its Valentine's day and they're made of candy)
  • Cats (I'm more of a dog person, and find cats annoying)
  • Neon colors
  • Tie Dye look
  • Emojis
  • 'Country' style (excluding modern farmhouse motifs, and rustic shabby chic, I like those)
  • Anime, Manga, or Kawaii
  • Gory/Horror
  • Dollar store items
    .

Please Do Not Send
Any thing with snakes! No matter how "cute" you think it is, I won't like it! I have such a mad phobia I don't even like to hear people talk about them, so that's enough of that.
.
Allergies

  • Lavender/Lilac both flavor and sent
  • Pineapple (still sad about this one, used to be my fave)
  • Pork
  • Smoke / Incense / Strong aromas (I have asthma)
  • Cat hair

Favorite Crafts


EVERYTHING! Well not really but it seems like it sometimes.

  • Paper crafts [unique stationary, scrap-booking, homemade decor, ...] Usually involving my Cricut
  • Pyrography (aka wood burning)
  • Painting (acrylic & watercolor)
  • Sewing
  • Baking & Cooking
  • Making Chocolate 'art' [mostly chocolate in nerdy shapes]
  • Photography [vintage Polaroids, mini photo printer, digital images, and editing]
  • my Bullet Journal/Planner
  • Other random arts & crafts projects.

I've never met a craft I didn't like. Sometimes I'm not very good or my OCD takes over and I can't complete it to my own high standards... but I love learning new skills, so I'll try anything once.

Favorite Movies

Some of My All Time Favorites

  • Any & All movies related to Alice in Wonderland
  • the Jurassic series
  • Star Trek (original & the newer Abrams ones)
  • movies of the Marvel Universe
  • Star Wars

  • Grease (my first ever favorite movie! & first CD I ever owned)
  • Phantom of the Opera & Love Never Dies (both theatric & cinematic versions)
  • the Pirates of the Caribbean series
  • 500 Days of Summer
  • 10 Things I Hate About You
  • This Means War

Favorite Genres

  • Sci-fi
  • Comedy, even some goof-ball, slapstick humor
  • Thriller/Suspense/Mysteries
  • Superhero
  • I love a good period piece! It doesn't even have to go very far back in time.

Genres I Don't Enjoy

  • Zombie movies
  • Horror/Gory
  • Chick Flicks
  • I'm not a super 'touchy-feely' type person so I'm not big on 'feel good movies' or a lot of heart-warming dramas.

Favorite Television

  • Friends
  • the Office
  • the Big Bang Theory
  • Supernatural
  • the Vampire Diaries (a part of me still can't believe this, but it's interesting and Damon = Yum)
  • Doctor Who
  • Sherlock
  • Star Trek: the Next Generation
  • Star Trek: the Original Series
  • the DC universe television shows
  • Downton Abbey
  • the Marvelous Mrs Maisel
  • I Love Lucy
  • Mad Men
  • Saturday Night Live
  • Top Gear (original British cast) / the Grand Tour

Favorite Books

  • Jurassic Park & the Lost World
  • "Bossypants" Tina Fey
  • "Up Till Now" William Shatner
  • "American on Purpose" Craig Ferguson
  • "Elon Musk" Ashlee Vance
  • anything by Kate Morton ("the Forgotten Garden" is my favorite)
  • the Seven Sisters series by Lucinda Riley
  • "Shockaholic" & "Wishful Drinking" Carrie Fisher
  • "Mandy" Julie Edwards
  • "the Secret Garden" Frances Hodgson Burnett

I love reading and listening to audiobooks! Comparing the length of this list to either my movie or TV list makes me look like an illiterate boob-tube junkie. Really I'm just much more selective as to what is a 'favorite' book.

Mailing Info

I go directly to the post office to send & pick up the mail at least 3 times a week. (I have to go for my job, so you know two birds and all...)

I promise to rate the swaps I receive the same day I pick them up. If I haven't rated that means I haven't received the swap yet.

For packages sent with more than postage stamps, I always get a tracking number and will share it with my partner once it has been sent.

If any of my mail ever arrives postage due, please let me know and I will send you stamps to cover the cost. I've been at the 13 oz happy mail game for awhile so I stay vigilant to postal guidelines but I'm human meaning I have the potential to screw up.

Please share with me any issues or concerns you have so I can do whatever I can to remedy the situation!
