I have been absent for quite some time, last year I made a request to the community for my amazing mother, she received so many beautiful cards from the community here, and some even sent beautiful gifts for her, she really loved it, and it made her cry, she would read her favorites over and over, she had planned on writing a few of you back, however, summer of last year she went in for some routine surgery, developed a severe infection and for 3 months fought for her life, and had a severe stroke. She had been in a nursing home since August (after months of being in the hospital) of 2019, and finally came home this August, she is alive, she still has her sense of humor, but she has difficulties communicating due to aphasia. I have missed swapping so very much, and I had a lot of responsibilities and worries thrown on me this past year, then with Covid, I am a walking talking 5'2 tall "Risk Factor" as I am sure many of you here can understand. But she is home now, its been difficult, especially for her, she is still in there she just can't communicate it, and her right side was affected and she cannot write.

So, in a nutshell, life threw a huge curveball, then a few more, but things are getting better, and I want to swap again. So I hope to see you in a swap.


Hello There!

I am an easy going chick, have a unique sense of humor, very open minded, I like tattoos, my ears are gauged, I love all animals, I enjoy meeting new people, I love to learn something new every day, I'm a child at heart (a nerdy child), game-show nut, puzzle nut (word find, soduku, fill-ins, brain teasers, cryptic puzzles all of them!) I love my parents, my Mom is my BFF, and I just try to enjoy life!

Postcards, from this point on I am only interested in handmade PCs, however, if you have regular PCs that fall into any of my likes, let me know! Also unless the swap requires it I like 'em stamped and naked!! 🙂📫

My beautiful Mother and I when I was a wee one:


My Mom now! She is super creative, and has a heart of gold! 💕💋 💖 Mom

As for me!

I just love to be creative, I love making things. I guess you could call me a dabbler, I have a tendency to try anything just to see how its done. However, my favorite crafts to do are paper crafts (particularly cards, ATC's, collages, digital art & stamping), art journaling, sewing, trash to treasure/recycling type crafts, and when I have time miniatures. I am obsessed with paper and ephemera (huge collager), and love to use it in my crafting. However, I am NOT a scrapbooker.

I really love making ATC's, handmade envelopes, note cards, bookmarks, postcards, inchies, twinchies, chunky houses, I love using nicely patterned papers, I really like unique and monochromatic papers, stickers that I can alter/zhugh (but just love stickers regardless!). I want to try these new ATC Coins!

I LOVE movies! Just as much as crafting! I particularly like horror, sci-fi, like Star Wars (original), Lord of the Rings (books and movies), Harry Potter series, Anything with Vincent Price, Bazaar & unusual movies, (including foreign), and comedy/action type movies, the classic movies from the 40s and 50s (Marilyn, Greta, Audrey, Jane, Grace, Natalie, Ava, Gene), ANY Shirley Temple movie! Cheesy 50's & 60's horror, as well as the new cheesy Sy-Fy channel movies! I am also a total sucker for the typical "guy flick" action movie!

Some of my favorites are Long Kiss Goodnight, Batteries Not Included, Monster Squad, The Purge Movies, the Die Hard Series, ET, The Thing (John Carpenters Version), Avatar, Jurassic Park, Predator Movies, The Ghost & Mrs. Muir, Alien Movies (the actual series with Sigourney Weaver), Jennifers Body, Chappie, The Abyss, 28 Days Later, American Werewolf In London, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Labyrinth, Pan's Labyrinth, Legend💕, Willow, The Dark Crystal, The Little Princess (1939), The Neverending Story, Big Fish, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, The African Queen, The Green Mile, Hellboy, Fantastic Beasts, The Princess Bride, House of Wax (original 1953)The Fifth Element, White Christmas, and so many more I can't even list them!!

Some of my favorites tv shows are; American Horror Story, Orange is the New Black, The Travelers, Frontier, Supernatural (I'm a Dean girl), Grimm, American Gods, The 100, Legion, The Handmaids Tale, Fargo, Stranger Things, Game of Thrones, Ash Vs Evil Dead, Future Man, Freakish, Harlots, true crime like Snapped & Swamp Murders, and any kind of cooking/baking competition show (like Nailed It, Zumbos, Baking Championships, Guys Grocery Games, etc).

💞Music is life!💗 I am listening to it about 90% of the time! I like all types of music, from Beethoven to ZZtop with oldies, country, pop, and metal tossed in too! If I absolutely had to pick a genre it would be a toss-up between 70s/80s rock, and the '90s! I do love being introduced to new music. Just to give you a taste of my ecclectic music taste there is one playlist that I listen to everyday, it is constantly changing, but right now, 12 random artists on it are:

  • Lady Gaga💕
  • Post Malone
  • Santana
  • Kansas
  • Ramones
  • Billy Holiday
  • Blue Oyster Cult
  • Alan Jackson
  • Regina Spektor
  • Blind Melon
  • Lukas Graham
  • Styx
  • Frank Sinatra
  • Ice T


I LOVE to read (as I said, I love a lot of things!), my book tastes are similar to my movie and TV tastes, horror (love earlier Stephen King, before he was hit by the car....), True Crime, Science fiction, supernatural, mystery (I adore Nancy Drew!), history (especially ancient times), and the occasional autobiography.


  • Colors: Purple(from lavender to eggplant), Orange, Blue, and Darker Pinks. Metallic: Silver and Copper (never been much of a gold person)

  • I bake like a mad woman! I enjoy cooking as well, but baking is where it's at for me! Cookies, cakes, candy, muffins, cupcakes, and I make a killer cheesecake! Baking and Crafting are my stress relievers and bring the most joy as my alone time.
  • Stickers! Stickers! STICKERS!!!
  • Washi Tape
  • Crap! Trash? Ok, maybe not trash, but bits and baubles that most would throw out, that cereal box, clean candy wrapper, scraps of ribbon or fabric, broken jewelry, etc. I love things like this, including ephemera, love it, and love to use it in my crafts!! Let's call it "spatially challenged" as it has no space anywhere, but in my home for future use! Yes, spatially challenged...
  • Anything Mario Brothers. One day I hope to have Amis of various characters Particularly Yoshi, Pink Yoshi, Boo, Toad, Goomba, Koopa and Bob-omb!
  • Small things! Who doesn't like tiny things? I have a collection of random tiny things, they are displayed in an old typeset drawer! They could always use friends!

  • Mini Train sets & layouts, N & Z scale in particular.
  • The Minions (from Despicable Me, I seriously have TONS of minion collectibles! I particularly love Bob (the short plump one with the bear), Dave (shorter 2 eyed guy) and my absolute favorite is Stuart (one-eyed guy)

  • Butterflies🦋

  • Unicorns🦄
  • Dragons🐉
  • Day of the Dead/Skulls💀 (not cartoon DOTD, and Anatomical Skulls, especially turn of the century illustrations)
  • Zombies!!🧟‍♂️!
  • Monsters (especially old school monsters)
  • Monster High Dolls! (LOVE THEM, they are not making them anymore! Boo!)
  • Horror Related Anything

I felt Halloween Deserved it's own space.

I love Halloween, and other than clowns, I love everything about it. Ghosts, witches, pumpkins, costumes, the Devil imagery, bats, spiders, ALL OF IT. From the cutesy to the gothic, to the gory, skulls, mad scientist labs. If it can be categorized as Halloween, I LOVE it!

I love the color combinations of Purple & Orange, Black & Orange, for Halloween and for every day. Vintage Halloween, gothic Halloween, and so on!

So I am always, and WILL ALWAYS, welcome anything Halloween themed! ANYTHING!


I rate on the swap, not extras unless they are part of the swap, but on that note, for me, I am rebuilding my stash, so extras are welcome!

On that same note, I do not always include extras unless I have something I think my partner may like, or use, or its part of the swap. I will also respect my partners wishes if they specifically state no extras!

Thanks for reading and Happy Swapping!

Coffee (coffee images/themes are perfectly awesome, just not real coffee). I also understand everyone loves to be creative, but I do have severe asthma, and things that smell heavily of smoke, do give me issues. Just to let you know.

Anything religious, I respect everyone's faith but please no religious items, or themes, thank you. Exception a swap that calls for it like Easter, or for Christmas, I am ok with it in those instances, thank you! 😊👍

Thanks again and have a great day!

Now that I am not working because of cancer, I have even more time! Extra items are always good!!! Once I heal up from surgery, I will be going through my room and cleaning out a bunch of stuff! Hope you have a wonderful day!!! :)

Thanks for sharing in on the hopeful thread. The message was incredibly important and often forgotten. I, for one, appreciate the reminder.

While I'm here, I was touched by the photo of the little you and your mom. You both remained such beautiful women! Have an amazing day! ♥
