About Me

The website link above leads to my personal website so you can see my work on Instagram, YouTube, or Facebook.

I send all swaps out on time, typically the same day partners are assigned. If something hasn't reached you, please message me before leaving a bad rating and I will do my best to make it right.

︵‿︵‿୨♡୧‿︵‿︵

Single momma to 2 boys and 2 cats. Turning 42 soon!! (eek) Have lived in NH for my entire life, in the same town.

I am a lover of just about every craft out there, but keep coming back to paper crafting.

︵‿︵‿୨♡୧‿︵‿︵

I manage a landscaping company by day and craft by night in my 500 square foot craft room. I plan to do a craft room walkthrough on youtube soon, but it always looks like a bomb when off in there.

I've been happily divorced (and single) for over 8 years. I like being single because I don't have to hide my hauls from anyone. 😂

My oldest has moved out and my youngest and I have been working/schooling remotely.

I started a group for newbies and others who want to help build up each other's ratings. Check it out: Newbie Craft Swappers!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE: Make sure you're putting enough postage on the items you send. I'm new to swapping here and had 3 packages with postage due already. I WILL NEED TO RATE DOWN if you can't properly post as my mail comes to my office and it's causing quite a commotion.

Favorite Crafts

I love to send and receive pocket letters, loaded envelopes/bags, flipbooks, tag flips, and more.

I sew, do a lot of paper quilling when my hands allow, painting, and make soap for my friends and little soapy shoppe The Sweetest Soaps.

My Stupid Hands

My hands are horrible to me so writing is challenging and typing is also becoming hard. I love penpaling, but cannot write long letters.

I used to crochet and create miniatures, but can't really do either anymore.

💔 Please don't rate me down for not writing a lot or typing a letter, I always do my best. 💔

My Swapping Experience

So I have been a member on this site for over a decade. I must confess that I come on here, try to find swaps, and get frustrated and leave. I am putting more effort into using this site and figuring out how to get into swaps and get ratings. I'm super confused how anyone can get to 20+ swaps as a newbie when newbies aren't allowed to do any swaps or join any groups.

I do a ton of swapping through facebook groups, but I'm getting slightly frustrated with sending high quality, elaborate handmade items and only getting minimum effort in return. (ie: my outgoing cost $5 to ship, and the swapper's package took only 2 stamps)

I have been on Pocket Letter Pals for a while, but that site has lost its membership and is very slow.

Dislikes

I don't like...

❌ LOOSE glitter or sequins (my cats eat them). I do absolutley love them in shakers or sealed baggies, however.

❌ Things that smell of smoke. If you smoke in your home, please let me know before I open your swaps.

Swap Name: Leave a comment Good Morning from Thorp, Wisconsin! Wow your soap looks so beautiful. I am not "crafty" at all so I really admire people who are. I live here in Thorp, a small town of 1600 people with my wife and our two cats. We have two grown daughters. I have never been to your state but hear that it is beautiful. I hope you have a wonderful day! Smokey
