About Me

Before rating a swap: If you didnโ€™t get it please contact me first. We are having issues with our mail here. I am not the only one. We have a substitute mail carrier at the moment and things have gone missing or run late. I always send my swaps and I am more than willing to resend a swap when needed. Please donโ€™t assume I didnโ€™t send something because that is simply isnโ€™t the truth. I always send because it sucks when you send yours out and donโ€™t get one in return.

POSTAGE: A note on postage. If you don't put enough on it I am not going to pay the postage due. It will be returned to you and you will have to resend it with the correct postage. After all that is part of the swapping experience. You are supposed to make sure the package/letter/card/swap etc reaches the person.

If I ever don't include enough postage and you pay for it please let me know. I will make it up. I weigh everything and either send from the post office or affix enough postage to it (I check at USPS under calculate price) so that I know it will reach the destination with no postage due.

I am a happily married mom of 2. I enjoy my life and love the area I live in. I love to swap and it's been awhile since I have swapped with anyone. I love creative swaps the most. I currently pen pal and have been for 16 or 17 years. I enjoy long and chatty letters about anything and everything. I am a avid reader (when I have time) and I love crafting too.

I have two beautiful children that keep me busy and on my toes. When I am not entertaining them I enjoy watching tv, movies, listening to music, singing at church, going for walks, hanging out with friends and family, write letters, reading, writing poems and stories, and so much more. I enjoy a wide variety of things.


Other people's junk. I received a swap today from someone (and I am not going to name names because I don't do that) and it was like they pulled together every odd and end that they didn't want anymore and sent it my way. It had missing or broken pieces, was marked on when it wasn't supposed to be, etc...I don't want that type of stuff in a swap unless we are doing a destash swap...and even then I would not of sent some of the things I got today. I am in no way saying don't destash because I sign up for some of those swaps too, but I am saying don't send junk!

I am NOT a big fan of pink! I just don't like that color at all, fake people, bad swappers, and other such things. stereotypes, closed minded people (we all have our opinions and beliefs and need to respect others. I may not agree with you but that isn't the end of the world), prejudice of any kind etc...

What I don't want in a swap:

  • anything HP or witch themed
  • anything evil
  • anything outside of my religious beliefs (again I can agree to disagree...and I am not looking to be converted. I respect your beliefs please respect mine)
  • reward stickers
  • things that are pink or with a lot of pink in/on it (again I don't like pink)

Things I collect:

  • postcards
  • fountain pens and supplies
  • washi and other decorative tape
  • stickers
  • letter sets
  • cute elephant stuff,
  • kawaii (but not the ones that are food with faces)
  • butterflies
  • celestial stuff (mainly stars and moon stuff)
  • cute sea themed stuff
  • white tiger stuff
  • crafty supplies
  • planner supplies (especially for Happy Planners)
  • other cute stuff.

Types of swaps I would like to do:

I mostly do smaller swaps but do a few big ones from time to time. Tea and other drink swaps, questions, pen pal swaps, postcard swaps, and more. I am not sure what else to say at the moment. If I think of more I will add it later. Thanks and happy swapping!


Comment: Hello ilovemybabies7 :) Your journal arrived safely! Did you create the butterfly origami on your journal cover? Itโ€™s very pretty! I read your letter, I collect a lot of things and I really should be using it lol, I collect used postage stamps, stickers, journals and pretty Japanese letter pads! Speaking of Amish, I went to Pennsylvania several years ago, my husband and I bought some Really good Amish goods from an Amish market! Death and taxes are what scares me, I also put Dementia haha because I keep losing my keys. I appreciate the goodies you sent me. I hope someone hosts this journal swap again, this is my second time participating in it. Thank you for the time you took to create your journal and share it with me. kizzlets
Response: Thank you for the heart! I will definitely host one again. I love doing them. Yes I made the butterflies on the cover. I just learned to make them ๐Ÿ˜€ I am glad you liked your journal and the goodies. I had so much fun picking stuff and creating the pages. Blessings!

Comment: Thank you so much! I can't wait to dive into this round of our journal swap and read your journal. :) The journals you included are so cute and the book sounds very interesting.
Comment: I was so excited to see an Arcata address! I used to live walking distance from the Square and miss it so much! I spent hours upon hours searching the bins at SCRAP Humboldt for art and DIY supplies. Thanks for the throwback and the fun goodies you sent.
Response: Oh wow! Yes I love it here. So much beauty and lots of outside activities. It sure has it's own spirit and feel. It isn't like any place I have ever lived before. I am glad you enjoyed the goodies =D
Comment: Thanks for the review of the book - does sound interesting. I would love to review books first hand sometimes but I rarely do ebooks anymore - I would be a great audiobook reviewer for new authors, no doubt. I hope you find more great books this summer. xxMuggleMom
