About Me

NOTE: I may be new to Swap-bot, but I do take it seriously. Please contact me if you have not received my swap. I always send out my swaps on time. If you don't receive it then it must be lost in the mail. I have never flaked on a swap.

I always rate when I receive swaps and hope that my swap partners will do the same. Thank you!

Hello, I'm Shirley and I love to receive and send 'Happy Mail'! I'm married and have one son who is grown. We have a cat named Sofie who is like my baby girl. I love swapping, crafting, baking and reading!

I love stickers, chocolate, crafty things for making cards, stationary, pens etc.


I love papercrafting the most. I like to make my own cards & envelopes, bookmarks, etc. I love scrapbooking, stickers and all that fun stuff. I'm also a huge CAT lover and love anything with cats or really cute animals. My favorite colors are Pink & Purple, but I aIso really love earth tones too! Oh and also anything GLITTERY! I love things that sparkle :) Also, anything Kawaii - they are too cute!

I also love things like snowflakes, snowmen, gingerbread men and cute cookie/cupcake images.


I am allergic to anything strawberry, hazelnuts and macadamia nuts.

Things I Would Like to Receive

Scrapbooking supplies: TIM HOLTZ EPHEMERA!! Washi tape, die cuts, scrapbook embelishments, papers for scrapbooking, gel pens, project life, cute paper clips, mini envelopes, vellum, tags, Ephemera Cardstock Die-Cuts, small stamped images (ATC size) etc.

Mini Brads - all colors and sizes are wonderful! :)

Note cards/Postcards: Any postcards are welcome including local attractions, food, art, animals, etc. For notecards, I like pretty things with flowers, cute animals, food theme, pretty designs, blank notes or all occations cards, etc. Kawaii works well for sticky notes or note pads.

Stickers - I love things like hearts, Lisa Frank, Kawaii, anything glittery, flowers, cats, butterflies, cupcakes, tea, coffee, angels, owls, bunnies, bears, holidays, unicorns, etc. - really love clear & 3-D scrapbooking stickers :) Please DO NOT send Planner stickers, anything Anime, Sports or any that are clearly kids stickers (like Dora, SpongeBob, etc).

Christmas items - vintage Santas, snowmen, snowflakes, gingerbread men, fireplaces, sleighs, wreaths, candy canes, old fashioned scenes or natural looking. Please do not send me anything with elves on it.

Autumn - Autumn is my favorite season and would love any items related to that - stickers, die-cuts, ephemera, Halloween (only if it's cutesy), Thanksgiving, etc.

Paper Doilies - small in all shapes and colors


I love exchanging friendship books and friendship sheets. Any and all are welcome. I AM HAPPY TO TAKE ANY EXCESS YOU HAVE AS WELL! :)


Any and all sticker, label and stamp bags are welcome!


I love fun hot chocolate packets in all different flavors. I also love Milk chocolate. Please do not send me tea, I don't drink it anymore.

I love all kinds of candies and flavored chips. Let me know if you would like to do a snack swap! We have a store here that gets really neat things from overseas. :)

Favorite Books

I love books! I'm very much into reading memoirs or real life stories that are not about anything scary or murder. I don't do scary, lol. I also like cozy mysteries, Amish romance, and some modern chick lit. I don't like historical anything.

Some of my favorite authors are:

Debbie Macomber

Beverly Lewis

Bailey Cates

Nicholas Sparks

Favorite Crafts

I love crafting! Right now, my favorite thing to do is to make my own cards with matching envelopes. I love to make really pretty envelopes to put my swaps in as well.

I make my cards in layout format using a software program and then I print and assemble them. I use 110lb cardstock for the cards and regular paper for the envelopes.

Making cards, bookmarks, etc is really fun. I also like to make Flip Books, Envelope Flip books and scrapbooking.

I'm always happy to receive anything related to card and bookmark making, including thin yarn for bookmark tassels, die cuts, glitter, embellishments, papers, etc.

ATC Wishlist

I am just starting to get into ATC's and am having fun creating!

Here are things that I would like to receive to help me create more of them:

Birds & Flowers, vintage items, Ephemera , 50s, 60s, 70's and 80's, cats and kittens, bears, butterflies, holidays, sequins, stamped images, holidays, foods, hearts, mail, backgrounds,etc.

I'm open to creative artsy ATC's too! Please PM me if you would like to do a private swap. :)

Please Don't Send

I am really not very picky, but please do not send me Planner stickers, anything religious, teacher stickers, anything with nuts, makeup or lotions, etc.

Please DO NOT send me any tea.

Please DO NOT send anything Anime, Sports or anything kid themed (like Dora, SpongeBob, etc).

Also, I love Halloween items but they need to be 'cutesy'. I don't like anything scary or gory.

Private Swaps

I am open to private swaps for Friendship Books, Deco's, ATC's, Friendship Sheets, Label Bags and Sticker Bags.

Please PM me if you would like to swap!

or if you have excess of any of those items, I would be happy to take them! :)

user3654 rated for Postcard Fun:-) COFFEE on Oct 15, 2017
Comment: Thanks for the PC - funny thing, I sent the EXACT same PC to my partner! And you are correct, I don't like coffee (unless you put lots of flavor, sugar and very little coffee in it), but I do like images of coffee cups and tea cups, and I have a lot of coffee PCs, so as long as I didn't have to drink it, I still enjoy the swap.
Response: Oh wow, what are the chances of that happening?! I'm glad you like the postcard though :D
