About Me

(Update: 7-10-2024) Hello again, I have been away for such a long time! And I have recently moved(well I moved a year and a half ago) and was going thru my garage to empty some boxes(don’t freaking judge me people :) ) and bumped into some old craft stuff and letters which reminded me of my time here on Swapbot. So, here I am! I can’t wait to get back into the swing of things and to see how everything has changed. I notice the ads between every link so there’s that, but Wow so glad the owners of this site have found a way to keep it running so that the rest of us can meet and enjoy! I’m grateful! I am now 45 years old and my kids are 23 and 10 and I got married and moved to a different township. Glad to be back and I will hopefully see you all in the mailbox!

*NOTE: Please let me know right away if you are missing a rating or swap from me! I have a difficult time navigating Swapbot on my iPhone. If I get confused on a swap and send something that is incorrect, a gentle message detailing what I missed will do just fine. I promise never to flake on you! I have only been flaked on twice thankfully, and I did rate them low. ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

πŸ‘©πŸΎβ€πŸ¦± Hello, I am Aaliyah. I’m 43 yrs old, I have two children, Gage/8 πŸ‘¦πŸ½ and Isaiah/21πŸ‘¨πŸΎβ€πŸ¦± Isaiah is on the Spectrum, Gage is off the Richter! They are polar opposites in regards to personality. Gage is my Virgo(born in the year of the Snake) and Isaiah is my Scorpio(he is my Dragon). They are my entire world! Love being a mom and love grumbling about it too🎭 ... I got married young(21) and divorced(5 years later). I am now engaged to the love of my life and I hope it lasts a lifetime! We have two female rescue cats- Shanella and Mamaz (yes, my kids named their cats) and two leopard geckos, Spartacus and Cesar-they were named before we found out they were both female…


I love to create, although I am a little busier now and don’t have much time for anything besides a painting here and there or my penpal letters. I am still an enthusiastic beginner, but I do my best to create items I would like to receive. I love to make decos, paintings, ATCs and flipbooks, handmade envelopes and an occasional handmade postcard. I keep an art journal that I don’t get to play with nearly enough and I love snail mail. I have a few penpals that I write with a few times a year. I am not good at writing every week but I will write every few months or do the occasional letter swap here. I try to stay in touch with my main pals and they have accepted this.



My life is crazy busy with all the running around that I do for my kids, and my fiancΓ©. It’s difficult at times because my fiancΓ© is a quadriplegic due to MS and my kids are still living at home. I work as a Home Health Aide, I enjoy my work but it doesn’t pay what it should. I try to send my letters and swaps decorated with whatever I have on hand at the moment, it doesn’t always happen but either way, I will try to make the swap fun! I love ALL colors and just about anything that can be used for paper crafts.



I LOVE AstrologyπŸ’˜ β™ŒοΈ

I am a Leo🦁 born into the year of the HorseπŸ‡πŸ½ I try to maintain a fun-loving, positive outlookπŸŒžπŸ™„ πŸ’₯πŸ’₯WarningπŸ’₯πŸ’₯ I tend to get excited about everything don’t be surprised if you see an exclamation point after every sentence of mine!


I will never push my beliefs on anyone or treat anyone less because of what they believe! Personally, I am more spiritual than religious. I basically believe in every damn thing! I believe in Tarot, Psychics, Energy, Numerology, Feng Shui, Buddhism and a good swear word. I am 🌈LGBT friendly. I ❀️ to laugh! I hate discrimination...but if I see a funny joke here and there, I laugh. I hate racism...but if I see a funny joke here and there, I laugh. I do not put anyone down, but...if I see a funny joke here and there....(well, you get it) πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ..meh, I’m not perfect. Nobody walking this earth’s surface is. I am not easily offended by anything except animal cruelty and bullying. I will go crazy over some animal cruelty or bullies. And spiders. I have come up with the craziest karate moves you have everrr seen thanks to spidersπŸ™…πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

Things I Collect πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜

Washi tape, pens, notecards, stationary, envelopes, playing cards, brads, paperclips, die cuts, scrapbook paper, glitter glue, confetti, cardboard chips, embellishments of any kind, paints, inks and stamps, comic book pages like Maxine and Garfield, fairies, cute calendars and of course, stickers! I LOVE SARCASM and WEIRD. Oh, and GLITTERπŸ€­πŸ€—


I do not like Disney, superhero, planner, kiddie type or reward stickers. I indulge in the flourish type stickers, farmland animals, cuss words, humorous, floral, laptop, worded or anything that glitters or have foil on them. Stick-a-bilities by Paper Craft Studios are my favorites. I do not prefer adult coloring items at all these days. And please, no memo sheets.



-I love to read! I prefer romance novels written in the medieval time frame, stories about English Lords and Ladies, Scottish Lairds and their Lassies and things like that. I also like magical books. I loved the Harry Potter series(Ravenclaw here!) but then they got a bit dark and I'm more of a light hearted gal so I almost lost interest after Dumbledore died😞 but gained it back when Ron and Hermione finally got it togetherπŸ€— My favorite authors are Barbara Longely, Nora Roberts, Sandra Hill, Jude Deveraux, Janet Chapman, Marsha Canham, Beatrice Small and Linda Howard. I also like to browse through an occasional supermarket Enquirer or something equally decadent (gossipy, of course). I am a thrift-a-holic and most books I have, are found at the thrift store. I love to reuse and recycle loads of crap I find.



My music taste has changed during the years and currently my favorite genre is Heavy Metal, Rock, some R&B but honestly, whenever I do listen to music, all genres are cool. Send me your playlists! I also appreciate being in a quiet, peaceful atmosphere just coolin’ out. I get overstimulated easily nowadays and it is so rare that I have any time alone.

I love animals, I am especially fond of kittens, lions and big dogs (the bigger the better) and my favorite breed? Hands down the Rottweilers.

I love to get beautiful mail❣️ There are so many talented people here on SwapBot! It blows my mind! I keep a lot of the pretty envelopes I get. If you are willing to make an entry in deco books or slams, please let me know!! I would prefer to mail them in the USA.

Oh, and I talk a lot. πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

More Preferences



Not fond of the white plastic backs or anything from the dollar stores, unless it’s cute notecards or socks. I don't like Emojii items in the mail or poops or clovers or plain washi. WASHI LOVE girly, vintage, mermaids, goth-like, cuss words and anything β€œartsy” or β€œweird”. I love Jane Davenport, Dylusions and Dyan Reaveley washi tape. Thank you for anything you share though!

πŸ’–πŸ’—πŸ’–Love anything sent that has crazy edges that you can use as borders on paper or in decos and I love anything that has gold, rose gold or silver foil accents. Please know that while I am being specific, it is just because it’s for my profile but I don’t rate down if you don’t send my preference. I know we all have different stuff to send from our stash and I love getting to experience the mystery in what a partner will send- it is interesting to see who I have similar tastes with

🌸🌼🌸🌼🌸🌼🌸🌼🌸🌼🌸🌼🌸🌼🌸🌼🌸 I am one of the rare people on SB that love extras, unashamedly. I am full of love and I love making people happy by adding a heart to their rating. I see nothing wrong with that...If I do not give a heart, it is usually because the swap wasn’t complete but I rarely come across that. If I have missed your heart and you ask me about it, I will let you know why I didn’t add it. I’m simple and open to your messages so please don’t feel like you can’t ask me about your rating. It’s never personal.

I ALSO LOVE πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸŒΌπŸŒΌπŸ’πŸ’πŸ’

Cards from board games, trivia, video games, jokers and cards with sayings or quotes on them.

About Handmade Envelopes πŸ’ŒπŸ’ŒπŸ’Œ

-Please do not send me envelopes made from magazines. I prefer the calendar pages or the regular card stock type and I love vellum made envies. I can always use cool cutouts of magazine words and pictures, old book pages, etc. (Like what you’d see on ransom notes) Letters, pictures, maps, venues, etc. I adore ribbons, cool fibers or threads that I can use to alter art projects, buttons and embellishments, β€œcommercial-type” ephemera, project life cards, printouts with a positive message, journal cards, postcards or anything else like that. Also, I will swap just about anything to get personalized address labels because I suck at making them. If you have a business selling them, let me know so I can purchase! I like to try out different types.


Happy Swapping and good luck in 2022!!


It’s gonna be a GREAT year!



πŸ’₯🌟πŸ’₯🌟πŸ’₯🌟πŸ’₯🌟πŸ’₯🌟πŸ’₯🌟πŸ’₯🌟πŸ’₯ I enjoy reading your profiles on Swapbot. It’s almost like people-watching, which I feel weird about doing, since where I live you kinda just mind your own business, ya know? I like to read SB profiles and I jump around to different profile links on people I see in random comments so if I message you out of the blue, I’ve read your profile and something stuck out. I would love to find some art buddies to meet and do group crafts with or painting with wine, etc. if you live near Bethlehem, Pennsylvania or are only two hours away and if you’d like to get together some day, let me know.

Thank you for the extra envelope you sent for the Send 2 swap. That was really so kind and generous of you. I love the papers and especially love the cute succulents stickers ❀️ It really was not necessary, but thank you for the thoughtfulness!
