About Me

Hi, my name is Shelby. Im 20 years old. I absolutely love(d) swapping and did so vigorously for many months. Unfortunately, completely out of the blue my mental and physical health took a decline in March. I was so unprepared- I had half finished swaps and recently purchased supplies for st patricks day themed mail! Unfortunately, treatment and my health lead to me dropping out of school and not being able to continue any of my normal activities- including swap-bot. I am so very sorry if you were one of the people who never received from me. I'm feeling better and have been working to send out all the swaps I missed. I know this will not fix the damage but its the least I can do. I am so sorry to anyone effected and for having disappeared as I did.

Anyways... Needless to say based on my class choice, I LOVE art and anything creative. I've dabbled with many mediums through the years including clay, charcoal, pencils, markers, sewing, pastels, beading, and I 'm sure theres more I just cant think of them right now.

Im a huge coffee fan and will end up drinking 3 or 4 large cups a day at least. I'm also very excited to start drinking tea because I have always loved the concept but only started liking the taste recently post bariatric surgery. I'm trying to build a collection so I'd love to receive any type! I guess I tend to like sweeter things :). I also Love receiving teas from other countries!

I love animals of all types! I've grown up around dogs so I have a soft spot for puppies (especially German Shepherds). I have helped take care and rescue kittens, baby bunnies, and baby birds. I also became obsessed with parrots for a few years. Fun fact- Im terrified of fish yet I have my scuba license to help conquer that fear. It didn't help.

I have two dogs.

Ruby- a golden retriever and

Nacho- a boston terrier hound mix.

Ruby is the sweetest and always wants to be doing the right thing- she wont even go through an open door unless we say its ok. Nacho on the other hand opens doors himself and kicks people out of their own beds.

Ironically I'm also dyslexic and apologize for any spelling mistakes I'm usually pretty good with catching them but just in case I apologize ahead of time.

If you have any questions or just want to talk feel free to reach out! I can't wait to get started!

Favorite Crafts

As I said before I absolutely love crafting. Ive been collecting crafting supplies for 10+ years and am ecstatic to have a outlet that can use so much of my supplies! I finally have some amazing crafts to use my 100+ rolls of washi tape on! Im pretty new to the pen-palling/ swapping community but I always dive into things head first and try my hardest.

Recently I've especially been obsessed with Junk Journaling and making embellishments. I have been obsessed with finding pieces of printed vellum, embossed paper, or really any interesting papers!

Some crafting supplies I love to receive is:

  • Vintage paper

  • Paper

  • Stickers

  • Cute paper clips

  • coffee or tea stained paper

  • Ephemera!!

  • Die cuts!

  • Doilies

  • Scrap Paper!

  • Lace

  • Postcards

  • Vellum.

Im not very picky so im happy with anything but a few things I do tend to dislike are; Orange, Reward stickers, and political items.

Favorite Television

Im a tv show addict. I have seen hundreds and if I really enjoy the show Ill re watch it over and over again while crafting. Some of the shows Ive loved in the past are:

  • Supernatural

  • Kdramas (especially scarlet heart: moon lovers)

  • Doctor Who

  • Izombie

  • Anime (seven deadly sins, fairy tail, ouron host club, etc.)

  • Gilmore Girls

  • Once Upon a Time

  • Teen Wolf

  • Switched at Birth

    and hundreds of others. I do like some movies specifically ones that are made based on books but because of my ADHD I find movies incredibly difficult to sit through for some reason.

Other Passions

In addition to crafting I also am a big sports lover. I'm competitive and my favorite sports to play are soccer, basketball, and volleyball!

Some themes I love are:

  • Cactus

  • Botanical

  • Vintage

  • Fairies

  • Alice in Wonderland

  • Peter pan

  • Old Winnie the Pooh

  • Coffee

  • Tea! (Love receiving from other countries!)

  • Kawaii San-x, sanrio, Q-lia, Etc (memo sheets, stickers, sticker flakes, etc)

  • Pastel!

  • MOON! Recently I've been obsessed with anything moon or galaxy related!

For Kawaii swaps I love anything but am especially excited when I see Sentimental Circus and Tarepanda!

A few more of my passions are: Chinese food, Kpop, Classic Rock, Ya book series, Traveling, Bullet Journalling, and Writing. I actually work as a writer for a disabilities foundation right now!


Love Love Love postcards! I collect all sorts and am fine with whatever you would like to send. I love and prefer collecting blank Postcards unstamped in envelopes but also love reading postcard with messages!

Not picky, always love receiving postcards they make my day!

The only postcards I may not require are any from New York City as I live very close and Alice in Wonderland as I received over 200 for Christmas!

About Me

If you don't receive from me or what you receive doesn't meet your standards please please please let me know I'm more than happy to send again!

Comment: Unfortunately I never received anything for this swap :(
Comment: Hi Shelby, my message letting you know that I haven't received your swap has gone unread and unanswered, and you haven't logged into Swap-Bot for several days. I hope everything is ok, because it looks like you really enjoyed swapping and mailed out some really nice swaps. I will gladly re-rate you once I receive this swap.
