About Me

Hello! I'm Jessica, 42 years old, & living in California, USA. I'm a witchy goth crazy cat lady who is beyond introverted. I wouldn't change it for the world.

Favorite Colors: black, dark grey, teal (the darker the better), & purple (the darker the better)

Yes, I am pagan. No, that doesn't mean I want to change that fact.

Please don't send me religious items.

Pen Pals

I would love to have you as a pen pal!

  • If I contact you outside a swap to be pen pals I will write first, as I asked you to take the time out of your day first.
  • If you contact me first, I expect you to write the first letter.
  • I only do snail mail letters.
  • Write something in your letter that I can respond to in my return letter.
  • I do not mind your religion or political beliefs. With that being said I will not argue about them with you either or have a discussion about them in letters unless they directly effect one or both of us.
  • International is welcome.
  • More then likely, I will type my letters. I have RA & most times it is hard to hand write anything.


I swap decos, fb/fs, and handmade postcards.

decos: I am getting back into deco swapping. -If you have one of mine message me & I will give you my current address. -I do art type decos. I'll take any kind to swap so no worries. I just no longer tape stuff on pages. -If you have a homer in the USA you want to send me with a swap - please do so. I'll get it home.

friendship books & sheets
I will swap any amount. Currently I usually have to send new ones (ones I make). I am trying to build up a stash so I can send mainly established ones.

Handmade Postcards I only swap handmade postcards that are written one. They can be sent anyway that is preferable for you. I do NOT swap naked ones.

I am a Spoonie..

If I am not online for a few days, a few weeks it is more then likely due to my Lupus and/or Rheumatoid Arthritis. Both are 'uncontrolled'. One minute I can be fine, the next I feel like I am going to die or my hands/arms refuse to work.

Where Was I?

As you see I am an 'Original Member' & most my swaps are form 8 or so years ago. I seemed to drop off the face of the planet here, on flickr, & yahoo groups. There was multiple reasons for this.

  • I was dying. It was lucky I found a doctor who believed women had a right to their body & fought to save me.
  • Family dynamics changed drastically & sent me into a severe depression.
  • I discovered Raverly swaps, which didn't last long.
  • I started designing & publishing my own crochet patterns.

Some of you know my Mom - Jo - from yahoo groups. If you doubt me about any of this & want proof, I suppose you could ask her. However I don't think she would be thrilled she had to bring some of it up.

metrognome rated for FLL: Letter about - PLANNERS! on Jun 3, 2023
Comment: Thanks! I can go on for hours about planners, too. The binder-style planner was kind of a bust for me when I tried it last year. It seemed so convenient to be able to add/remove/rearrange pages, but I couldn't keep up with making my own structure.

Comment: Thank for all the fun decos, so many of them I can't wait to work on. I really like your page for the book quote🎈 lol!! I just saw this quote on a car & I sending on "I hope something good happens to you today!" xxMuggleMom
Response: The entire time I was doing that page I had an Ice Nine Kills song in my head. I read that book when I was 12 or 13 & 30 years later I still look down drains just in case. Didn't help with my dislike of clowns either lol.
Comment: I loved my mini pocket letter! Thanks so much for choosing my favorite theme. Can I write you back?
Response: Sure! I wouldn't mind one bit!

OMG!!! I have RARELY been as delighted as I was when opening the package you sent me for YGM #5. That potholder is a riot and so amazingly cute. You "got" me by reading my profile and made the perfect thing for me. I have been using the heck out of it, and it brings a smile every time. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness.
