About Me

I am a 37 year old hippie chic. I love peace signs, vintage trolls, Christmas, peacocks, stickers, glitter, snail mail, taking pictures, sharpies, my iPad, unicorns, stickers, rainbows, hot air balloons, Lisa Frank, Prince, nail polish 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 a 9 year old mini-me (B) who loves to get mail. She loves stickers, crafty stuff, magnets, animals, (pretty much stuff I like) and she collects key chains and Shopkins.

I mainly host and join sticker swaps. I LOVE stickers and I always share with B!

I have several smashbooks. I keep little things I like, quotes, bits of artwork B draws for me, small magazine clippings, photos, prayers, etc.

Sticker Wishlish

-Vintage stickers

-Full sheets / mods

-Prism and holographic stickers

-Laser stickers

-Puffy stickers

-Foil stickers

-Glitter stickers

-Cool vinyl/weatherproof decal stickers (for my kayak!)

-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 like smiley face and star stickers though!

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.

Random Facts About Me

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 3 tattoos, including a peace sign and an amazing unicorn! (It's on my instagram page @thegrantgirl

I sell and collect [hoard] vintage stickers.

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

I hate putt-putt (mini golf).

I love the HBO show, GIRLS.

I am not easily offended.

I am a Girl Scout leader.

I love Johnny Depp and all of his sexy weirdness.

Avoid and Dislikes...

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

-Beauty samples

-Sticker Flakes, foam 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.

Favorite Music

Both ends of the spectrum and everything in between!

A few favs: Prince, Daft Punk, Aerosmith, When in Rome, Warren G, Missy Elliott, Clay Walker, Sam Smith, Lady Gaga, T-Pain, Nirvana, Michael Jackson, Blondie, Taking Heads, Alan Jackson, Sia, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Color Me Badd, Ram Jam, Kenney Chesney, TLC, OutKast, Poison, Nelly, Ludacris...oh and Lil Wayne, Vanilla Ice, and Human League, and Travis Porter, and Muse, and Foster the People, and j Cole, and Kid Rock, and Motley Crue, and Blake Shelton, and Alice Cooper, Ramones, The Police, and and and...

See what I mean?!

Books/TV

The Twilight Series (#teamedward), Water for Elephants, Johnathan Livingston Seagull, anything by Danielle Steele (Granny Dan, Legacy, Jewels, Sisters, etc.), The Mitford Series by Jan Karon

I love magazines too. I subscribe to Martha Stewart Living, House Beautiful, Country Living, National Geographic, Our State, Woman's Day, Natural Health, Bust, etc.

I tried the whole reading-magazines-on-my-ipad-and-nook-color and it is just not the same, because I like to tear out/clip things I like and keep them in a notebook!

I don't watch a whole lot of TV, but I do really like: The Goldbergs, Full House/Fuller House, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, OITNB, Girls, The Ranch, Freeks & Geeks, Black Mirror, Atypical, and other random stuff on Netflix/Amazon Prime/Hulu.

Comment: Girl - you are simply amazing! You went so above and beyond with this swap. I don’t know why, but this was delivered to the vacant house across from me (what the heck!? Lol) I’m just so happy the owner of the house was kind enough to bring it over today - it brought a tear of joy to my eyes 🙃😊 I do feel terrible about late rating - coincidently, I wasn’t even aware I was missing this swap. Again, thanks so much for the amazing swap!!! I especially LOVE the vintage teddy bear stickers! A millions hearts for you!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Thank you so much for the AWESOME envelope of goodies you sent to "angel" the bad swap. I wont lie those Lisa Frank stickers might not get shared with the kiddos, those took me RIGHT back to childhood haha. I loved all the stickers. Thanks so much.
