Happily rooted in the Denver Metro area in Colorado. Married to the love of my life Ryan and I am lucky enough to be a step-mom to our amazing, funny and totally hippie daughter Natalie who is 12. We have been going through fertility treatments for the last 4 years and I really feel like this is our year, hopefully we will be blessed with a Baby Fuentez soon =) My Mom also lives with us she has her own little basement apartment, we are getting ready to start a huge project scanning all of our old photos and putting them into albums - it is a daunting task but it will be so fun to spend quality time together and it will be so gratifying when it is all done!
I'm a total Craftaholic - but what I really mean is I spend an absurd amount of time sourcing, collecting and organizing craft supplies - which is why I'm here lol.
I used to be obsessed with scrapbooking, I still enjoy it I just never seem to get around to doing it more than once a year or so.
My most recent favorite craft hobby is junk journaling. I love collecting goodies from the thrift, the craft store, bits cutout from old books and random other pieces of anything that catches my eye and then pulling together a layout from all the different mixed media. My favorite theme for my junk journal pages is space/galaxy - I actually have a separate book for space layouts.
Pretty much anything crafty - I can do it or I've tried it. I especially love making home decor from Dollar Tree items that you would never know was from Dollar Tree
I absolutely love thrifting and decorating my home. I originally went to college for interior design and it is still a huge passion of mine. Nothing makes me happier than creating an eclectic homie space for my family with all of my special finds from thrifting, garage sales etc.
My Daughter Natalie has recently become really interested in my swapping. Since she is too young to do her own stuff so she does a lot of my stuff with me. Mostly she does what she thinks is 'the fun part' lol, which is opening all of the happy mail with me. I save everything to open with her and she finds just as much joy in it as I do! Lately she has been getting some goodies in our mail, which she has loved. Feel free to replace any item in a swap with a litttle goodie for her if you like =)
Natalie's Likes (She is a Happy Hippie little 12 year old)
She loves tea 🍵 and will be over the moon for any tea we get in a swap.
Reading 📚 (Unique/Special Bookmarks)
Wax Seals (We make them together and now she has a collection and is always trying to snag the ones I get in swaps lol)
She also loves the really weird and funny stickers. When we go through new sticker deliveries, she always picks out the 'derpy' looking ones lol, she says she is saving them for a whole journal page of weird 😄

SWAPPING: I always try to rate promptly and appreciate when you do the same. Swapping is my #1 Hobby these days and I like to keep it fun! I'm chill, just keep in touch with me if you are late sending etc, no stress needed =) I hope for the same grace from others. I really do try my best to make my partners happy when I send a swap, so if there is ever an issue, please reach out 😊

I just started adding PC swaps to the mix June 2023.
Typed PC Notes - After my first PC swap with multiple partners I realized that I'm going to need to type the notes I write on my PC's. My handwriting gets so bad when I write a lot, plus I have De Quervain's Tenosynovitis in my right hand and writing for long periods of time will make my hand hurt for days. Please be gracious and know that I'm still writing you a personal message I'm just typing it and printing it onto a sticker. =)
PC Likes -
Anything from my ABC's list above
Greetings From ______ PC's ~ the ones with the pictures in each letter of the name of the place! (I'll take them from any place)** I'd love to someday have a collection of Greetings From PC's from each state, that were sent to me from someone who lived in that state - I know it may take a while but that's ok =)
Lantern Press - specifically vintage travel poster style
Linen scenic PC's (especially vintage/retro colorful)
