About Me

I'm just a silly gal that was born and raised in Hot Arizona. If I have the time I like to send you hand made embellishments and things like flipbooks and I also make cards and gifts for various charities. If you'd like to see some of them, look up Good2BKind on Facebook and Instagram Good2BKind.
It would mean the world to me to get a note with Happy Vibes when you swap with me. I always get letters that are kinda sad and it really brings me down. I'm really trying to make each swap experience a joyful one. So please send from your Happy Heart. Write a cheery note, tell me about wonderful things going on in your life. Instead of just sticking a scrap of paper in an envelope to send to me, think of something to make with it like a mini envelope, a paper flower, a bow, something! Don't just send scraps it confuses me.

Don't worry......keep reading and you'll find that there are so many wonderful things that make me smile from ear to ear! I love styles that are shabby-chic and White Farmhouse Cottage stuff. Reference images: Magnolia House Decor by Chip and Joanna Gaines for inspirational ideas.

  • I love realistic looking things like honey bees, sparrows perched on a branch, butterflies, and I love anything with real looking roses.

    • I absolutely love anything with big bows. And I love love love leopard print.

    • And here's a fun idea that I got from a friend... If you've read this far in my profile, my favorite number is 14. Try to incorporate the number 14 in your Happy Mail that you send to me. Let me see who is creative! Creativity, kindness, and Happiness is key to winning my heart

Favorite Colors & Patterns

Even though my favorite color is White, I love BOLD contrasting colors!! Such as fun black polka dots dancing on a yellow background. Or big black and white stripes pared with bright pink roses. Pop! Wow! Speaking of Wow, leopard print is to die for! Dark and mysterious. Pare it with Blingy rhinestones and I am hooked! When it comes to White: imagine tonal off whites, with chalk board black, tied together with a brown jute string and a few sprigs of fresh greens. Refreshing! Clean! Don't fo forget about my favorite number 14.Think about how you can include 14 into your swap.

Dislikes

  • Disney
  • kawaii
  • anime
  • Anything cartoony
  • Take note that I do not celebrate Holidays.
  • witchy, mystic, fantasy is just not me
  • not fond of receiving religious items
  • please please please do not send me bits of scrap paper, old unwanted cards, or stickers cut up from a sheet where you took the ones you wanted and tossed me the cut outs.

Things that make me smile:

  • I'm in NEED of computer mouse pads But I also love receiving....
  • glassine envelopes
  • rub on transfers
  • bows bows bows! I absolutely love Bows!!!
  • I prefer realistic looking things, not abstract, cartoon, watercolor. I love things that are real looking like flowers, bees, and perched birds.
  • lace or tulle samples are always needed at least 14 inches please
  • flower stickers that look real not cartoony
  • I'd really love to read an encouraging letter from you, please nothing sad. There's too much sadness around me.
  • show me a postage stamp that is unique I adore them
  • I'd love to see how you like decorate your envelopes
  • show me your artistic style, hand made items warm my heart
  • I can't get enough chipboard pieces!
  • I love gourmet aromatic teas (not fruity) and rich flavored coffees. I'd really love to receive a tea pocket
  • I'd really like to receive keychains. Fuzzy ones are the best!
  • I love Roses but not the scent of roses
  • I'm in need of rubber stamps not acrylic stamps
  • I'm always in need of metal cutting dies, used is fine.
  • don't forget to use the number 14 in your swap somewhere!!!

Things that make me cry:

Ok so here it goes. Please don't be angry for my honesty....

  • When something is sent without CARE it shows and I don't think that deserves a good rate at all.

  • I would rather receive something you made from the heart with items that you found at the Dollar Store, than receive an item from the Dollar Store that was just shoved in the envelope to give to the next victim who doesn't want it.

  • I really really really Dislike receiving pointless scraps of paper. There's no Heart or thought behind it. It confuses and upsets me. Sorry but it's true.

  • illegible handwriting

  • ABC's of Likes on profiles don't help me. Example: someone might list "Candles" under the letter C. Well I can't very well send you a candle. So what do I do, send you a picture of a candle????

  • I'm part of many swap groups, please make sure to state which group you're sending from. If I don't know what I received from which group, I can't give you the credit you deserve for what you sent.

  • many people misspell my name and it hurts my feelings greatly. How would you like that if your mail was addressed to someone else? My older brother's name is similarly spelled and all while growing up I've had to put up with mail that was always opened first by him.

  • PLEASE do not send scrap pieces of unwanted paper. Make something with it first, then send it. Or use it to decorate the outside of the envelope.

Comment: Thank you! I'm sorry you felt bad. I've been out of it. My dad passed away. He was 89 and had been very sick. It's for the best, but there was a lot of out of town people and and things going on. Then in the following week most of us, including me, got covid): Still, it isn't fair for me to just rush thru ratings because I know the effort it takes to do this.
Response: I hoped I had won your heart. At least if anything, I hope it was nice to get some happy things in your mail. Sorry if I disappointed. I usually go above and beyond.
