*** I will be out of town through April 12. I don't have anything pending, but should a swap arrive (I think I have 1 or 2 on the way), I will not be able to rate immediately.

My name is Jacki and I'm happy to swap with you!

I live in Michigan. I am a lifelong learner and work in education. Autumn is my favorite time of year. I value kindness, diversity, equality, justice, the earth, animals, good books, and a hot cup of tea. I enjoy time with friends and family, but also need alone time every day for sanity. I am trying to simplify and adopt a more minimalist approach but find it most challenging in terms of fabric and swapping supplies!

Imgur

I enjoy making decorated envies and putting together little packages and RAKs. I’m not super crafty, but will try easy paper crafts now and then.

I love to sew/quilt and make pillowcases, place mats, table runners, quilts, bags, etc. Message me if interested in a private swap for handmade items.

I am trying to downsize my paper craft supplies. If you have me as a partner, follow swap guidelines but feel free to keep it minimal. No need to send lots of extras - leaving them out will never impact your rating/heart from me.

  • FAVORITE THEMES - For paper craft supplies or other items, I mostly enjoy floral, botanical, nature, bicycles, artsy, earth friendly, female celebrative and encouragement, books, languages, tea and accessories, animals, non-English languages, watercolor. I prefer artistic over realistic images.

  • CHATTY LETTER - with no obligation to write back - write about anything, no topic off-limits.

  • GREETING CARDS - I participate in a group that sends cards to senior citizens and use lots of age-appropriate Birthday, Thinking of You, Get Well, Sympathy or blank cards.

  • TEA - please do not send herbal, fruity or rooibos. I drink black, green, and white teas. My current favs are NUMI ENGLISH BREAKFAST BLEND and ORGANIC INDIA TULSI CHAI MASALA. Always on the hunt for QUALITEA EARL GREY (Sri Lanka) and KEISARIN MORSIAN (Finland).

  • HANDMADE - handmade treasures are the best, in any medium. If you ever want to private swap for handmade things, I would love to sew something up for you - message me if interested!

  • PATTERNS – patterns for fun sewing projects (not clothing).

  • SOCKS - fuzzy no-slip - wear them every day in the house

  • VICKS INHALERS - use these inhaler sticks to pep me up when I need a lift

Imgur

Items that land in my recycling bin are childish, Disney, fantasy, mythical, celebrities, fandom, fashion, sports, religious or spirituality (angels, Bible verses, goddesses, tarot cards, astrology, etc).

Unless specified in the swap description, please do not send traveling items (friendship books, slams), random scraps of paper, memo sheets, dollar store items, touristy items, beauty products, jewelry, used postage, postcards, ATCs.

Most swappers are good people with good intentions. I will not look for reasons to down-rate and can be very understanding when things do not go as planned. I presume positive intent and give the benefit of doubt whenever possible.

Communicating solves a world of problems - if you mess up on a swap, just message me, and chances are it will be fine. If I mess up, I will do everything I can to fix it to your satisfaction.

Comment: The liquorice candy is so yummy, I love it! I need to hide it from myself so I don't just inhale it in one go, haha. I haven't tried the chocolatey things yet, but they too look super good. Thank you so much! ♡♡♡
Response: I'm so glad you like it! It's an old candy, been around forever. Once you finish, if you ever want more, let me know and we can do a swap!

AARI: Positive Comment Hello there ^^ I hope you are well! I enjoyed reading your profile. I also love drinking tea and we have similar tastes, maybe we can exchange some in the future :) It's also very cool that you can and like making handmade items. I'm not the most crafty one but sometimes it works for me to do something small. I always compliment and appreciate a lot handmade works. Keep it up and happy swapping ^^ Best, Nikola

I'm happy to hear Dutch got the b-day card I sent him - thank you very much for your very nice gift in return. I absolutely LOVE the Jane Davenport rub-ons you've sent me! Sending it in a handmade envelope made it even more special :)

Thank you for my AWG March wishes of spring stickers, Christian stickers and butterfly stickers! I loved them all!

Blessings,

Yvonne
