About Me

NOTE: My PO Box address recently changed!

Hello, I’m Annaliese. Here are some facts about me:

  1. I’m a stay-at-home-mom;
  2. My husband and I have three kids (one little one still at home);
  3. Our family includes five cats, three tiny fish, and two snails;
  4. We live in the forest in the Adirondack Mountains;
    and
  5. I’m a member of one hereditary society, the Associated Daughters of Early American Witches, “by virtue of direct descent” from Winifred King Benham and her mother, Mary Williams King Hale. I’m doubly certified! 😁

And now a bit about Swap-Bot:

I rate as soon as I receive my swap and hopefully my partners will do the same. Also, I will not flake on swaps; so if you do not receive something, it would be a mail issue. Please be sure to contact me before leaving negative feedback and I will do my best to fix the issue. We live in a rural area with hard winter half the year and sometimes the mail is slooooow.

Additionally, it’s unlikely I will give bad feedback if someone has put their time and money into doing a swap with me. Not everyone has the same idea about what is “good enough”; and not everyone has the same abilities, nor resources. There’s enough negativity in the world and life is hard enough. A person would have to really eff things up or be very obvious about sending crap to not receive a 5 and a heart from me. ❤️ What I can’t use I can give to someone who can.

A Few of My Favorite Things

Gnomes, witchy stuff, cats, wizards, dollhouse miniatures, autumn, Halloween, “use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without”, sewing, nature, occult, forests, coffee, gardening, James Herriot stories, mushrooms, plants, flowers, fairytales and folktales, reading, tarot, art (I love watercolor and paint in general), visible mending, pagan stuff (especially Celtic, Norse/Scandinavian, etc), Scandinavian and Nordic things in general, bats, Snow White, Lego (yes, I am an AFOL - Adult Fan of Lego 😁), crystals, genealogy, Elsa Beskow, googly eyes, reducing and reusing/zero waste, penpalling, philately, Waldorf-inspired parenting and living/learning, Edward Gorey, and bringing fun and happiness to the world at large.
❤️💙💛

Please Do Not Send

Anything religious, racist, misogynist, patriotic, cartoony stuff, puffy stickers, “bedazzled” type things, words (such as the ubiquitous “Live, Laugh, Love” or “Diva”), ugly/green witches, pop culture, steampunk, foam shapes/stickers, glitter, dog-themed, coupons, anything tv related (I haven’t owned one in over a decade), camouflage anything, and hunting or guns.

Otherwise, I’m not easily offended. ^_^

Colors

I pretty much love all colors, but my very favorites are forest/darker green shades, purples, black, and orange (at the moment 😁). I’m not into girly pinks or neons.

Private Swaps

I have an overload of vintage illustrations and other vintage (and not-vintage) ephemera and craft supplies. It would be great to renew my stash a bit, so please message me if you look at my profile and think you have some things you would like to swap!!

My Little One

My seven-year-old LOVES fairies, gnomes, etc and would appreciate anything having to do with those (childlike ones, not sexy type). Waldorf-ish stuff would be especially appreciated. :)

Favorite Books

In no particular order:

Astrid Lindgren (Pippi Longstocking, Ronja the Robber’s Daughter, etc), Frances Hodgson Burnett (The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, etc), Lucy Maude Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables series), J.R.R. Tolkien (Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, etc), Alice Hoffman (Magic Lessons, Practical Magic, etc), Tove Jansson (Moomintroll series, The Summer Book, etc), James Herriot’s books, Beatrix Potter, Marta McDowell’s books about authors’ gardens, Jane Goodall (lifelong hero)…and many more. I am constantly reading!

Comment: TYVM for the PC of buttons, with what schools you went to. You're so lucky, you only went 3 different elementary schools. I was an Army brat and travelled all over, with my father and went 10 different schools in diffrent states. I didn't mind going to different states. But did mind leaving the schools each, after having good friends. That part was very hard.
Response: You definitely have me beat on schools!!
