About Me

Jan 12, 2020--Just got home from long vacation and am catching up on mail and ratings! I got a lot of mail and want to take my time opening it all and enjoying each piece! Thanks for your patience!

~~~~I AM ALWAYS UP FOR PRIVATE SWAPS~~~~

This Months Wishlist:

  • Valentines anything, especially crafting supplies
  • Doilies!
  • Seeds(Samples fine-any kind)
  • Spices(Samples fine!)
  • Tea(especially ones that are good iced! bags or loose samples)
  • Hand or foot mask
  • Needle felting supplies-just started!
  • Anything winter/snowflake
  • Charms
  • Anything inspirational/positive saying
  • Packs of diecuts/ephemera
  • Handmade embellishments
  • Anything handmade by you
  • Wrapped things!
  • Glitter/sequins/seed beads for shakers(samples are great!)
  • Die cuts or punched shapes, especially nature, animals, and basic shapes for clusters
  • Cluster embellishments(just getting started and want to see other peoples!)
  • Naked mail

I love and collect all things peacock and butterfly! Include anything with peacocks or butterflies and it will definitely make me smile!

I love exploring new crafts and am always looking for unique ideas(Fried Marbles for instance-yes they are awesome, look them up). My bed has one side for sleeping and one side for crafting and swapping and almost all the wallspace is bookshelves/dressers of art stuff. One way to instantly make my day is to send me something in a fun envelope. I even have a wall I put my favorites on. I am a big holiday girl and am always in need of stuff for upcoming holidays but also will take out of season stuff. One of my favorite stashes I am looking to build up is embellishments for ATC's/flipbooks/loaded bags so send me any extras you aren't going to use or think I will like, partial sheets and hand me downs are awesome in my world. I love thrift shops and recycling. I am always up for private swaps, I really love the personal nature of them. I also love and collect peacock and butterfly stuff!

I am an Actress, Costume Designer, Director, College Student and Art Metal Artist. I love anything related to Theatre and Shakespeare. I have one cat who is crazy but amazing and loves catnip and toy mice. My favorite place in the world is Cape Cod where my parents live! I love swapping and always try my best to make packages special. I completely understand that sometimes life gets in the way and swaps dont get sent out immediately, please keep in touch though.

I used to have more on my profile but it got messy. If you want any other info(favorite books or anything) just ask and ill let you know.

Favorite Crafts

I have done a lot of types of crafting but right now I am most into papercrafting, especially making flipbooks, pocket letters, loaded envelopes, and handmade embellishments. I also love anything and everything random! Pinterest is my best crafting friend and I love trying new things. Recently I have been into things which are often directed at little kids or adults who are kids at heart! I am also spending a lot of time on Youtube watching paper craft tutorials and learning new types of happy mail! To get a good idea of what I am doing look at my Pinterest Craft boards!

Holidays

I love holidays! All of them! I just actually went through one of my favorite website and have put wacky holidays in my planner. Did you know that January 10th is National Bittersweet Chocolate Day? I will certainly be celebrating it. But I really love celebrating all main holidays. I terribly miss how in kindergarten we all had little mailboxes and exchanged valentines-nothing like that as an adult, though swap-bot comes close. I love decorations, cards, little things to open day of, crafts and supplies, stickers, washi tape, pretty much anything holiday themed. I am also very happy to get holiday things off season or from after holiday sales!

About Me

Lastly, about me.... my name is Rebecca. I am 28 and a caregiver for seniors with disabilites. I am a lifelong Wisconsin girl but my family moved to Cape Cod, MA 7 years ago(I am still in WI). I have one fur baby who is my love. Her name is Pip and she is a Turkish Van(special breed of cat). My family also has a boatload of cats and my puppy who is not really a puppy anymore. Her name is Sippewisset and she is a golden retriever. I work at a classical childrens theatre doing most things but primarily costuming and acting. I love chatting with people on here, in letters, and on text and making friends with people on here. If you think we will get along, please message me!

Swapping and Rating

If you have read this far, thank you for taking the time. I love this site and it brings me so much joy and connection to others. I will always send my swaps and if they are not going to be on time(which they are generally sent very early in the swap) I will contact my partner and let them know. If you have not recieved my swap and it is marked sent, let me know and i will get a resend out. I understand things get lost sometimes and i hope you will too.

I do my postal rates on a scale at home and it normally works but if by chance there is postage due please let me know and i will send you some stamps to make up the difference. I dont want you to be paying for the swap.

I click sent when i put my stuff in the mailbox but the post stamp might be the next day because my mailman comes very early in the day.

I also always rate but I do take vacations when i have someone else getting my mail and my packages go to the office which does not get checked every day so if i havent rated and you think it has arrived it is probably that, but feel free to contact and check.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and Happy Swapping!

Comment: Hi Rebecca! Your beautifully glittering flowers arrived today, packaged in such a special way! I love them and can't wait to use them. Love all the ways you found to glitter the flower, including using glitter paper! Unbelievably, I never even considered that. Thank you so much for another thoughtful, well-made, creative swap; I love when we're partnered!
Response: Thank you so much! I am glad you liked them. I like trying new techniques so it was fun trying different stuff on different flowers. I just got out my glitter stash(which is huge!) and had fun! Thanks for hosting the swap! I like when we are partnered too! Looking forward to swapping more in 2020!

Comment: These are BEAUTIFUL! They're already up in the window by my Norfolk Island Pine tree! And I adore the red star--how did you make it? I've never seen one. I'm in love with the paper you used for these--so delicate and lovely. And the stamps! I love using them in my creations. All sent in the cutest ever kitty cat card--I adore everything. Thank you for sending such a bundle of lovely items just.for.me. ;+) You're the best!
Response: Thank you so much! The paper I used for them is just tracing paper. I thought it would be more delicate like snow! I’m so glad you love the window star! I love making them. My mom got some kits when I was younger and I’ve made them on and off since. The window star is made of I think 8 pieces of a basic origami shape but when they overlap it creates layers and depth.
