I am a 48yr old mom of two boys and I have been married 24 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, in 6th grade and distance learning. We are blessed as my husband has been able to work from home.
I love butterflies and woodland animals such as foxes and deer. I look forward to going to Disneyland in the future. I am so happy that it has reopened!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
