About Me

@pandaartsylifestyle

Hello everyone. (❁´◑`❁) As you may guess from my SB name... I ❀ LOVE 🐼 pandas. It's actually my camp counselor name from Girl Scouts.

CRAFTING HISTORY πŸ“Œ I've done scrapbooks for the last 20 years... and snail mail pen pals for nearly 29 years! I have a love of stationary and stickers that spans my life since grade school. I've swapped many pocket letters and am working on papercraft supply and ATC swaps now. I love sending and receiving happy mail.

FAMILY LIFE πŸ“Œ I'm 46 years young. I live in Texas with my husband and teen daughter but I was born and raised in Illinois. I work full time in the public schools with children ages 3-21 with special needs. We have two shih-tzu mix pups who are quite spoiled.

HOT TOPICS πŸ“Œ I am an open minded, but not easily swayed individual. I am a straight, Catholic, democrat that is also Asian-American and lives in the USA/Mexico border. I am strong in my beliefs but enjoy other points of view and intelligent debate. Don't contact me looking for a fight... but if your interests, age group, culture, race, religion and/or lifestyle is different then mine that's a bonus to me. I have many close friends that live different than I do and I love learning about new people, their cultures and differing points of view! Variety makes the world an interesting place. πŸ‘πŸΌβ™₯️

SWAP OPTIONS πŸ“Œ I am willing to swap internationally. I am patient and will contact others before rating anything other than a 5.

Likes:

❀ Theme interests include: pandas, snail mail, vintage, sanrio, maps, shabby, botanicals, kawaii, gorjuss girls, florals, butterflies, dogs, elephants, rabbits, healthy food, positivity/motivation, quotes, children, bees and family.

❀ Supplies that would be useful... decorated paper napkins; acid free stickers (unless they are scratch and sniff... my students love those!); washi tape and stickers; vintage maps/music/pages from books; note cards (blank - not thank you, congratulations etc.), spare stationary with/without envelopes, velum, shaped paperclips, cling stamps, unused USA stamps, instant coffee mixes, healthy recipes with pictures and playing cards with different designs/patterns (standard size and small).

❀ Anything sent with effort and friendship in mind is appreciated. (●'β—‘'●) Anything that is sent with an awareness of my profile and/or with generosity will get a quick heart.

❀️ Currently open for ATC swaps. Message me and I will gladly set it up.

Items that are appreciated, but will be passed along:

πŸ‘ŽπŸΌThick (plain or printed) cardboard/chip board that is difficult to add into journals/scrapbooks due to thickness and/or increased weight when sending in letters to pen pals

πŸ‘ŽπŸΌPostcards. Regardless if they are from places or have sayings... I'm not a fan. Will pass on for sure.

πŸ‘ŽπŸΌTea bags (coffee lover here!)

πŸ‘ŽπŸΌPuffy stickers (hard to put in journals)

πŸ‘ŽπŸΌCats (achoo!! I'm allergic and just not a fan)

πŸ‘ŽπŸΌMake up/perfume samples (sensitive skin)

πŸ‘ŽπŸΌI'm not a fan of fluorescent colors or yellow in general.

πŸ‘ŽπŸΌBookmarks (I listen to audiobooks).

🐼🐼🐼 PLEASE send me a message if you don't receive a swap from me. I'm happy to resend if something goes wrong.

For non profile based swaps... Please be aware that means 99% of the time I will be filling the envelopes prior to partners are assigned. If you receive items that aren't your taste... Please just pass the items along. I do try and send items that I like and I hope others like as well.

Favorite Places I've Been

I grew up in Illinois. Went to college in Iowa. Lived in New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Arizona after graduation prior to moving to Texas.

When I have breaks from my job in the schools I love πŸ’Ÿ to travel. We own a small motorhome and love to get out on the open road whenever we have a chance. I've been all over the United States including Alaska. Internationally I've visited: Barcelona, Spain; London, England; Mexico, Canada and the Philippines.

Other interests

πŸ’Ÿ I'm a runner/jogger/walker/hiker. I recently have been quite involved with virtual racing.

πŸ’Ÿ I am very interested in nutrition: I count calories and am learning to count macros. I do eat meat, but eat vegetarian many days a week and try to eat primarily plant based as well.

πŸ’Ÿ I enjoy VR Cardio games (Supernatural, Beat Saber) and do work out with Peloton workouts as well.
