I am taking a gap year as an elementary school paraprofessional where I taught 1st through 3rd grade since 2012.
I am the mother of 3 girls and a boy ages 14, 16, 18 and 19. And a Golden Retriever and an Australian Cattle /Lab Retriever. I am half Mexican and love learning about the Mexican side of my heritage. I love traveling to Mexico to meet and visit family. I am still learning Spanish.
I love touristy postcards and vintage pre 1990's postcards. I am NOT interested in random postcards of quotes or animals.... unless the swap calls for it.
Junk journaling is my newest endeavor. I have joined some special groups on here for these swaps.. if you are my partner I love vintage papers especially in another language than English. I am a succor for old vintage recipe book pages or recipe cards or old photos or sketches from vintage cookbooks or magazines. I like old receipts and bank ledgers. Old geneology charts and always a good old photograph all of which may be a copy. I understand that originals are hard to part with.
I love making Zines and am happy to take them.off your hands. I grew up with a librarian as a mother so I feel a little like I have my own little library. I have made hundreds of them. Seriously. I have a file cabinet full of my originals. I know. Nuts. But it is kind of a passion of mine.
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) and the Harry Potter films.
My favorite TV shows: Schitts Creek, K Dramas, Modern Family. Sister Wives. Black Mirror. Miniseries filmed in the U.K. and throughout Europe and those Scandinavian Noir tv series, plus Black Mirror on Netflix. PBS Masterpiece Theater specials. I also watch a lot of shows with subtitles.😍😍😍
I am obsessed with Travelers Notebooks!!! I love my planners B6 size.
I love to read Thrillers, self help and autobiographies and short stories. I receive a book each month from Book of the Month club and have read so many wonderful ones that I never would have picked up.
I discovered the Enneagram in 2013 and have studied it ever since. I quickly realized that I am a SEVEN with a 6 wing.
I just have to declare my love for alpacas!!! We stumbled across an alpaca farm in rural Oregon one night and spent a day there just watching those beautiful creatures. Now they are my favorite animals on the whole planet.
CITY STREET POSTCARDS-especially small town downtown America or British villages
Old ticket stubs, menus, doilies for art journaling
JANE AUSTEN ANYTHING
ANYTHING ENGLISH (as in England)
POSTCARDS FROM OUTSIDE THE USA
ANYTHING DIA DE LOS MUERTOS OR FRIDA KAHLO
Things with gnomes
I love anything and all things Mexican. The food, the decor, the colors, the music!!!!
I belong to the church of Jesus Christ of Latter DaySaints (Mormon) so I do not drink Coffee. (I do t drink tea BUT I use them to age paper for junk journaling AND to use in pocket letters so I would enjoy getting those.
I don't need any more bits of colored cardstock or patterned paper. I find that this doesn't get used.
Loose tiny stickers that are not on a sheet. I will loose them immediately and that is sad.
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!
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).

Hello 👋🏽 just wanna say thank you for hosting junk journaling swap! I hope you can continue the project as right now my country still suspending international mailing 😢 Really appreciated this & I have fun! Tysm again 🙏🏽
I am hosting the January Birthday greetings again. Feel free to check it out.
Wow- I love the quarantine postcards! So, thank you so very much for angeling the $7 Etsy Postcard Surprise swap for me, it is so very appreciated ♥
! Very cool miniature creation by Elsa Mora! https://elsita.typepad.com/elsita/2007/10/frida-kahlos-st.html
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!
