About Me

If you ever don't receive a swap from me in a timely manner and I haven't messaged you, let me know and I will resend immediately!!!!

❤️ If you send me a holiday card that doesn't have the name of the swap written on the outside, I open them on the holiday and will rate after opening! ❤️

Unused postage stamps are my #1 needed item. It's so helpful when I get them! I'm on disability and have a budget down to the penny and I swap thanks to everyone that sends stamps with their swaps. ❤️❤️❤️

Anything service dog related! Patches from Etsy that are seasonal are ALWAYS fun and super welcome. We LOVE doggie bandanas as we have an Instagram and need to start doing photoshoots! If you'd like to order something for Ruger, give me a price range and I'll let you know what we currently need!

Autum, Winter, and Christmas themed washi!

Anything Alice in Wonderland themed! Especially John Tenniel illustrated

Postcards/stickers/ephemera with campers or tiny houses on them!


Anything involving The Muppets or Jim Henson.

Alphonse Mucha style art.


Salvador Dali.


Anything demonic/Satanism/Witchcraft/New Age, Cult, Crime or Halloween related in any way is a HUGE no thank you for me. I respect your beliefs, please respect mine.

Anything anti-religious (i.e. something that's making fun of someone's religion or being disrespectful), anything that makes fun of anyone else, especially people with special needs or disabilities.

Circuses that use exotic animals. I hate the forcing of endangered animals to perform for people.

I also really dislike Rick and Morty and South Park.

Not a big fan of Anime unless it's Studio Ghibli, Hello Kitty or Pokemon related somehow.

DO NOT SEND-Allergies

If you are a smoker, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know before you send a swap, if you want to just take a photo of it, I will rate a 5! I'm HIGHLY allergic to cigarette smoke (can send me to the ER or leave me bed bound for days). I am extremely, extremely sensitive due to my MCAS which blows any allergies I have totally out of proportion. Medication I had been taking for 15 years sent me to the ER the last week of 2021, so please take this seriously. 🙏❤️

Highly alllergic to any sugar other than stevia, and carbs are a huge no no for me. 😞 I'm on a very strict diet due to my POTS.

I'm also not allowed to have caffeine, so herbal teas are fine, no black teas please! ❤️
