I'm dedicated to Swap-Bot and send all my swaps on time. If you haven't received a swap from me, please let me know. I'm always happy to re-send.
In a world where you can be anything....be kind.
I practice yoga, reiki, meditation and energy healing.
I love to garden. When I was a kid, I would help my little Italian Grandma with her garden every summer. We would plant tomatoes, zucchini, all kinds of peppers, watermelon, green beans and potatoes. I've scaled my garden way back as an adult. I mostly plant a large variety of tomatoes, peppers and herbs.
My favorite herbs are basil, rosemary and lavender. These are also some of my favorite scents. As for other smelly stuff, I like berry, lemon, cinnamon, patchouli and nag champa. Not a big fan of strong flowers, apple, watermelon or jasmine.
I do energy work and long-distance healings. I like to spend as much time outdoors in nature as I can manage with working full time and taking care of my parents. I love the spirituality of nature and practice pagan/nature traditions and holidays.
My grandmother was from Italy and was an unofficial "Stregheria". She shared all her magical and non-magical kitchen secrets with me. I love being a kitchen witch bringing the nature inside and creating magic with food. I LOVE all holidays and celebrations that bring positivity into the world. Its so fun for me to decorate my home and make special food for the holidays.
I love to visit shrines dedicated to the Blessed Mother. I have a special devotion to this version of the divine feminine. I enjoy collecting images of the different forms of Mary.
I love doing tarot and oracle readings. I've been meeting with people using FaceTime or Zoom and its been great. Especially since I'm home alone more then usual.
My favorite "regular" holidays: Christmas, Halloween, Easter and Thanksgiving. I also don't mind receiving holiday items all year.
Favorite Halloween icons: witches, skulls, pumpkins, ghosts, haunted houses, scary trees and cemeteries; not really into black cats or monsters or anything gory. I love tarot readings and ouija board fun.
For Thanksgiving, I like traditional themes - turkeys, pumpkins, fall leaves and woodland animals. I love vintage Thanksgiving images.
Favorite Christmas themes: traditional red & green, nativity scenes, snowman, silver – anything sparkly. Lots of glitter and sequins. Not into country or rustic themed decorations like burlap and plaid.
For Easter, I love bunnies just not too cartoon-y. I love pastel flowers & ribbon, colored eggs, carrots and Victorian looking Easter baskets.
I have a serious Starbucks addiction. I love the coffee drinks and merchandise. I also love all types of Starbucks inspired stickers and washi tape.
My favorite Washi (but I love it all): Simply Gilded, Paper Geek Co. and Cookie Sticker Co.
I love the Cavallini stationery, journals, stickers, papers...all of it!
I like zodiac inspired art, stickers and washi. I'm a Pisces and love to collect things with Pisces symbols and imagery.

"Flat" items/ideas of things I will use in journals and projects: washi tape, unique stickers, quality paper pieces, punch-outs, used postage stamps neatly trimmed or off-paper, journaling cards, homemade envelopes, tags, book pages and labels. I also like embellishments like sequins or gems.
THINGS I DO NOT LOVE
I do not eat beef or pork
• Kiddie stickers • Color your own anything • Chocolate covered fruit • Flower flavored tea • Not a big fan of St. Patrick's Day. South Bend is home to Notre Dame, so it's everything Irish all year long.
I love books! I love reading, collecting and sharing all types of books. I'm a big fan of used-book stores and Paperbackswap.
I like to collect old cookbooks, spiritual books (everything from Catholic saints to yoga) and art books.
I read a lot of fiction. I especially like book series. They are a fun way to spend more time with the characters.
I enjoy paper crafts, journaling, making prayer beads and rosaries, painting on all type of mediums, washi crafts, candle making, baking sugar cookies in holiday shapes, and drawing yantras and mandalas.
I'm new to knitting, wire-wrapping and paper roses.
I love pen-pals and writing letters. I feel like its a lost art.
Music makes everything so amazing!
Some of my favorite genres:
Pop - some current top 40's, but always will love the 80's best!
Classic Rock - Everything from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Motley Crue
Classical - Mozart, Beethoven and Baroque
World - Kirtan and Liquid Mind
Oldies - I love Elvis and music from the 50's and 60's
