My name is Jacki and happy to swap with you! A few things about me:
Founder of Healthy Journaling - a group for inspiration and encouragement to keep track of healthy habits in creative ways. Our sister group is Health & Fitness Foray for lots of health-focused swaps and discussions.
I enjoy making decorated envies and putting together little packages and RAKs. I’m not super crafty, but will try paper crafts now and then.
My hobby of choice is sewing. I make pillowcases, place mats, table runners, quilts, bags - no clothing. Message me if interested in a private swap for handmade items.
Leafy things - leaf theme or made from leaves, all colors not just autumn. Do not care for realistic images/photos of leaves.
Cute bicycle themed items, bikes with flowers, that I can use in my health journals. These are the ones I am using: bike notebooks
A sample of your handmade art/craft -- anything knit, crochet, embroidery, tatting, sewing, quilting, paint, watercolor, drawing, zentangle, felt, pottery, clay, beaded, wood, glass, etc.
Tea (sealed). Black, green, matcha, or spiced. Do not care for herbal, fruity, or rooibos. My current fav is Numi English Breakfast Blend. Would love you forever if you sent me Qualitea Earl Grey (Sri Lanka) or Keisarin Morsian (Finland).
Envelopes (that I can use) - especially if made of paper with interesting texture like vellum, translucent, crinkly, or onion skin paper
Letter from you with no obligation to write back - write about anything, no topic off-limits (even politics/religion). Challenge - send in a decorated envelope with different textures!
Any little unique item that supports independent or local shops
Bags in all shapes and sizes - tote bags, small bags, pouches, etc. Not a fan of those with store names/logos on them. Love handmade!
Lidded boxes and containers in all sizes or materials except plastic
Soft ankle socks or fuzzy no-slip socks - I wear them every day in the house
Die cuts (I have no device to make them myself)
Sewing notions that you use and recommend, sewing machine needles (Schmetz size 90/14)
Fat quarters of premium quilt-shop quality cotton fabric (no Joanne Fabrics, Walmart, or other discount fabrics - although Hobby Lobby is ok). See my Etsy fabric list for ideas of my style.
Non-touristy items from anywhere outside of US - things with writing in language other than English - things from middle eastern countries especially welcome. No plastic souvenirs.
Candles or wax melts (fav scents: jasmine, lilac, cinnamon, sandlewood, earthy, clean, lemon)
Your recipes for tried-and-true organic, natural, homemade cleaning products or beauty products - stuff you know works
Dislikes include items that are childish, Disney, fantasy, mythical, celebrities, fandom, fashion, sports.
I do not care for memo sheets, dollar store items, touristy items, cheap beauty products, random scraps of paper, jewelry.
I do not collect post cards, ATCs, used postage.
Please do not send traveling items like friendship books, slams.
No religious goodies -- things with Bible verses, Christmas, Easter, angels, goddesses, pagan, astrology, tarot cards. I am religion-friendly, but have no interest in religious goodies and will typically just toss them.
Most swappers are good people and here for the right reasons. I will not look for reasons to down-rate you and I can be very understanding when things do not go as planned. I presume positive intent and give the benefit of doubt whenever possible. If you mess up on a swap, message me - chances are it will be fine. If I mess up, I’ll do everything I can to fix it to your satisfaction.
