About Me

Hi!

I am a 48yr old mom of two boys and I have been married 25 years now to a wonderful man who puts up with my crafting. Both of my sons are autistic (ASD). One is 20 and in college. The other is 12 and in 7th grade.

I love butterflies and woodland animals such as foxes and deer. I look forward to going to Disneyland in the future.

My family and I do celebrate secular holidays.

Please message me if a swap is late or gone missing. During this Covid-19 virus time with CA having "shelter in place" order. I am not directly handing my mail over to the post worker as per usual before clicking the SENT on Swap-bot. I am placing the swap in my mailbox and then clicking SENT otherwise I would forget to click SENT if I wait. Depending on when the USPS picks up the mail, it may be postmarked the day after I SENT it. This should not cause a problem as I send my mail off days before the send by date.

Favorite Crafts

I am taking a break from making books. I had a lot of fun making journals, magpie books and deco books but I have moved on a bit from them.

As of late I have been diamond painting, bead embroidery, stitching and might pick up miniatures again.

This is a couple of pictures of diamond painting. The first is using a light pad. It can help quite a bit for those that have difficulty seeing.

I tend to do diamond painting with special rhinestones. I just enjoy all the colors. Similar to what you see below. You can see more on my IG link at the top of my profile.

Favorite Music, TV & Books

I prefer listening to YouTube the most. I will have it on in the background while crafting. I do watch some shows on Netflix but it is on rare occasion. I have been watching DARK and Lucifer as of late.

I have actually never had a favorite book. I used to read lots of books as a teen. As I became older, I just had worse and worse reading comprehension. I read passages over and over and nothing stuck. I found it very frustrating. It took me a while but I found out it is from a symptom of fibromyalgia called fibrofog.

Small Things I Enjoy

I love stickers, except puffy. I subscribed to Stickii and would by all the packs. They are awesome stickers that are non kiddie, non alpha, great for planners. I highly recommend them. Check them out at this Stickii Link

I do enjoy stamped images that I can color in and add to my journals.

I do like Kawaii stationery but I am not picky about it. So if you are in a Kawaii swap that is particular don't worry about what you send to me. I am okay with receiving Diaso, American Kawaii, and cheap Sanrio.

Disney characters, especially Minnie and Mickey. Oh and Stitch.

Postcards - No preferences.

RAK

Had a bad day, week, month? Running low on note cards, stationery but want to keep swapping? Message me if you would like a RAK (Random Act of Kindness) and I will see what can be done.

Babaswork

No Thank you, please

Please as a side note, I do not wish to receive anything religious. I am not religious but respect all religions and the people who practice them.

Sadly, candy treats I cannot have. I am on a special diet from my physician.

Please no clothing or house hold items.

I really don't care for glitter.
Please Note: A tiny amount well stuck to the paper such as on a card or sticker is fine.

I don't care for confetti or sequins.

I personally don't use temporary tattoos so they just get passed along.

I personally don't use puffy stickers as they are don't match my aesthetic for journals and so I just pass them along.

I personally don't use classroom reward stickers but I do pass them along to a few teachers that love them.

Comment: Hi Selene, Happy New Year's Eve and New Year's Day(a little early). I hope you had a very nice Holiday Season! I spent the Holiday with family. My sister and I are going out for lunch today to Ring in the New Year early today. You did a Great Job coloring Section 2. I like the way the owner of this postcard divided the illustration to be colored in a different arrangement. I think the next time I send a postcard, I"m going to use this manner of dividing a postcard for something NEW. I liked all the colors you used in coloring your section of the postcard. I'm going to use many colors like you did in your section. I really like how many colors look on this card. I hope we encounter one another again during the NEW YEAR! I left Swap-bot for a few months, as I needed a break. Barbara B., sleepingrover2010
Response: I'm not sure why I did so many colors in that spot. I just play around and try to have fun. Not all sections inspire me but this one did. I am glad you are having fun with it as well!

Comment: TY for the bday card!!! ^^ My bday was very lowkey this year, ended up going out for dinner. My friends have been so tied up that we haven't gotten a chance to get together still! I <3 Nightmare Before Christmas - SOOOO cool that you did Oogie Boogie Bash! I saw someone's vlog footage and it looked insanely cool! Oh, and I will ALSO probably be buried in letter sets~ XD
Response: Just go ahead and fuel the pyre with all my stationery! It will be a lovely way to go out!

Comment: I have been a doing a LOT less gaming and a lot MORE studying lately! More on that in the letter I am sending out to you this week XD! BIG exam, glad it's over! I'm right there with you - 2020 was a doozy.. and not sure if my social anxiety is better or worse since this pandemic kicked off TBH... -.- especially due to WFH!
Response: I love WFH, it should be more of a standard thing. Some people work better that way and then more people could work!

Comment: Definitely thankful for my hobbies too! I miss doing more colored pencil art and painting!
Response: I found out I could do paint by number with acrylic markers, it makes sense and then I can color and paint without the mess!

Side note - I am on the hunt for a mini pre-lit PINK Christmas tree for my office... hard to come by a good one lol! I wanna put kawaii ornaments all over it ^^
