About Me

I am an elementary school paraprofessional where I teach about 36 children in 1st through 3rd grade.

I am the mother of 3 girls and a boy ages 10, 12, 14 and 15 Five years ago we added a Golden Retriever pup to our family and a year later we got a 7 year old Australian Cattle Dog/Lab Retriever. I am currently obsessed with our family's vintage travel trailer.

WHAT I COLLECT

I like postcards. I am not so much into random postcards of animals, plants, and objects. I love postcards of cityscapes, landscapes, and architecture. I especially love ones from Mexico and outside the USA. I love making Zines and love to trade them and see what others do with this amazing art form. I grew up with a librarian as a mother so I feel a little like I have my own little library.

Favorite Books

Dystopian and Utopian books in the YPL (young people's library) section of the Library. I have a Kindle and do most of my reading on it... but I still love to curl up with a REAL book.

Favorite Movies

My favorite Movies- Pride and Prejudice (BBC version and the Kiera Knightly version) as well as Nacho Libre (Jack Black), Emma (Masterpiece Theatre version with Jonney Lee Miller)

My favorite TV shows: British Miniseries... and now K- Dramas. I loved Descendents of the Sun and Goblin!!!😍😍😍

MY LIKES

I am obsessed with Travelers Notebooks!!! I love my planners and am always looking for stickers to use in them.

HANDCRAFTED SOAP (any scent but Coffee or tea scent or food scents like sugar cookie and pumpkin)

ANYTHING WITH RETRO TRAILERS

WASHI TAPE!!!!

RED VINES LICORICE

MY WISHLIST

CITY STREET POSTCARDS

VINTAGE PC'S

MAKE-UP (NEW MASCARA, NEUTRAL COLORED EYE SHADOW, NO LIPSTICK!!!! )

GIRLY PERFUME

JANE AUSTEN ANYTHING

ANYTHING ENGLISH (as in England)

ROMANCE NOVELS

POSTCARDS FROM OUTSIDE THE USA

MARY JANES FARM MAGAZINES FROM PRE:2013

ANYTHING DIA DE LOS MUERTOS OR FRIDA KAHLO

Stationary

Food jewelry

Things with gnomes

Dollhouse miniatures

STOREBOUGHT OR HANDCRAFTED CARDS

I love anything and all things Mexican because I am half Mexican! The food, the decor, the colors, the music!!!!

Don't send me:

I belong to the church of Jesus Christ of Latter DaySaints (Mormon) so as a member I do not drink Tea or Coffee or anything with alcohol. I also would not appreciate anything pertaining to Satan. I respect other religions.... As long as what you send me is informational and not meant to try to convert me to your belief I ACCEPT INFO ABOUT Different BeLEIFS.

Private Swaps

I love to do private swaps with well established swappers. I am open to profile surprise related swaps or a specific type of swap. Send me a PM and we can chat!

IMPORTANT TO KNOW....

I always send out my swaps on time. I usually get them out at least a week before the swap closes. There are 3 different days in the month that I go to the post office. So some swaps are ready to be mailed weeks before the swap closes and a few are mailed just a few days before it closes. If you do not receive a swap from me... PLEASE send me a private message and let me know it was not received. I will resend after waiting an appropriate amount of time to ensure the mail is not just taking the long route to you. I ask that you give me a chance to get your package to you before rating a 1 or 3. I never give out 1's or 3's when the swapper truly makes an effort to fix a problem. Anyway... so far things have run super smoothly (and hopefully they continue to do so).

Comment: Maggie, thanks so much for sharing your mental health struggles in your zines, and I'm so happy to hear you're feeling heard and starting to feel like yourself again! Thanks for hosting this swap! (also I didn't realize you were from Vegas and from basically the same area as I am, what a small world!)
Response: Thanks so much. I loved reading your profile. You are such an interesting person. I love the Uglies series too!!! My husband and I and now our teens are reading or have read them all!

Whoa! The zines! First, this envelope - beautiful! I love every one of these zines. I like the ideas, especially the one of "people get to fill in." I'm going to def make one of those. The sewing one is so pretty! Having Milan Pasta next weekend! Juicy secrets are always fun to read!

So you didn't want anything in return, but since zines are a make and copy thing, any that I make, I will send you a copy. Oh, I'm making a "kinky" one for a swap - let me know if you DON'T want a copy of that. Meantime, for the rest of your life (or mine...depending) you will randomly get a zine from me in the mail on occasion. I'm starting to see how useful they can be, and also how they can be put together in different ways to make different sizes. Thank you so much!

Thank you for the awesome and wonderful and fabulous mail art created by your super kids. I love the house and the mountains, the fabulous tiger cat, alligator, panda, and owl! You are a talented household, clearly! Thanks also for the tags, we'll put them to good use :)

Thanks

Thanks so much for the zines, Maggie! I really liked getting these three little (completely different) peeks into your life! It's what makes trading zines so awesome! 😊 I especially enjoyed reading about your fairy village. So imaginative! Thanks again for trading with me! Have an awesome holiday weekend! ~ Joy

I just rec'd a 2nd zine from you in a Spam note card. Is it for the My Fairy Village Zine Round 4 swap? I am confused. Or did I rate you instead of someone else? confused?
