I am a 40 year old hippie chic. I love peace signs, vintage trolls, Christmas, hot air balloons, stickers, glitter, snail mail, taking pictures, sharpies, my iPhone, unicorns, stickers, 80s music, rainbows, hot air balloons, Lisa Frank, Prince, gumball machines, carnival anything, and vintage / retro stuff. Did I mention stickers? More on that later...
I'm very extra and believe there is never enough glitter and confetti. I carry a zipper pouch of confetti in my purse at all times. #alwaysbeprepared
I have an 11 year old mini-me (B) who loves to get mail. She loves stickers, crafty stuff, magnets, animals - especially cats (we have 1 inside and 4 outside), 90s fashion, and she collects key chains and bouncy balls. She's also a Girl Scout. I am the leader of a Junior troop of 9 amazing girls! We are 7 years in and love it!
I mainly host and join sticker swaps. I LOVE stickers and I always share with B!
I have several smash books/junk journals. I keep little things I like, quotes, bits of artwork B draws for me, small magazine clippings, photos, prayers, etc.
I love everything about the 80s. I was born in 1980, so I was a little young to really, truly enjoy it. If I could just be "stuck" in a decade but continue aging and living, it would totally be the 80s.
I finished Game of Thrones. (Obsessed!) I am late to the Harry Potter scene, but am now obsessed with it too. #sortedintoRavenclaw And the latest is Schitt's Creek and Umbrella Academy! THE BEST!
-Full sheets / mods
-Prism and holographic stickers
-Vending machine stickers (old/vintage)
-Hot air balloon stickers, gumball machine stickers, and rainbow stickers make my heart beat faster! Especially vintage.
-OK, really any stickers (no reward*, word, flakes, or holidays other than Christmas and Halloween, please) I DO collect vintage and modern Halloween stickers!
*I like smiley face and star stickers too!
I don't care for kid/cartoon character stickers either (like dinosaurs, Dora the Explorer, etc.) ~ with the exception of Carebears, Trolls, etc. (anything that's a throwback to the 80s/90s!)
I am always open to private (vintage or new) sticker swaps.
My nickname is CK (really creative, I know)
I just cannot pick a favorite color. Is rainbow a color? What about glitter? Holographic?
Most of my closet is fashion jewelry, not clothes.
I do not like my bare feet touching the floor.
I have 4 tattoos, including a peace sign, an amazing unicorn, and a hot air balloon in honor of my mom! (It's on my instagram page @thegrantgirl

I am a bit of a germ-a-phobe, and a little OCD.

I am not generally that picky, but I do like to see dislikes on some profiles. I do not have many, but here's my list of non-preferred stuff:
-Disney, cartoon, superhero stuff, princess stuff
-Overly childish unicorns
-Sticker Flakes, foam stickers, baby/maternity/wedding stickers, alphabet stickers, reward stickers (I like solid colored smileys & stars though!)
-Cut out stickers or cut sticker sheets. (unless swap says they are ok)
-Perfume, candles, other scented stuff
-Paper ephemera, scraps, and trinkets in themes not listed above
I would not "rate down" for any of this stuff. I just don't prefer it.
