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, scrapbook paper, embellishments for ATC's, etc.


I love papercrafting the most. I like to make my own cards & envelopes, bookmarks, etc. I love scrapbooking, craft supplies 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 :)

I also love any Primitive (Prim), 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: Washi tape, die cuts, scrapbook embelishments, papers for scrapbooking, gel pens, vellum, tags, adhesive gems, random craft supplies for ATC's, etc.

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

Note cards/Postcards: My favorite postcards are things like food, art, animals, etc. Please no car related or sports postcards. For notecards, I like pretty things with flowers, cute animals, food theme, pretty designs, blank notes or all occasions cards, etc.

Stickers - I love things like hearts, Lisa Frank, 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.

DECOS - I love exchanging Deco books. However, I am not interested in any that are specific, meaning you HAVE to paint, draw or rubber stamping on them. All others 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 (100,000 bars, British chocolate, tootsie rolls, etc), snack cakes and flavored chips and I love funyuns! 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 can make handmade cards with embellishments and I also make cards digitally 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, glitter glues, embellishments, papers, etc.

ATC Wishlist

I LOVE ATC's and am having fun creating!

I like ATC's with STURDY backings. Please don't send me ATC's that can bend into a U or are flimsy. My favorite type are collage style with several layers - including things like fibers, embellishments, etc. but I'm open to other styles too. Please PM me if you would like to do a private swap. :)

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

Small vintage images, cats and kittens, holiday embellishments, sequins, small adhesive gems, thin adhesive ribbon, confetti, glittery string, small stamped images, ATC size backgrounds,etc.

Please Don't Send

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

I do not need any post-it notes or note pads.

Please DO NOT send me any tea.

Please DO NOT send anything Anime, any Car related, 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 Deco's, ATC's, or whatever you can think of!

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! :)
