UPDATED PROFILE 4/5/2022
*PLEASE DO NOT MAKE FB'S OR SHEETS WITH MY LABELS. * I am not accepting new penpals at this time.
My name is Stephanie, She/her. Late 30's, reside in Florida with my soulmate/life partner/forever fiancé & two wild but mostly pleasant children. I have too many pets/livestock, a decent garden, and a large property that needs a ton of work constantly. It borders a nature reserve so we have all kinds of wildlife from coyotes to turkeys to wild boars. I rock a messy bun & chipped nails daily because who has time to primp when you work on a hobby farm. I am not easily offended. I am a lifelong user of profanity though we rarely do so in front of others we are not close to and comfortable with. I love my animals, my crotch goblins (In the words of Robin Williams, I'm a crude rude dude. Bangarang!), oddities, skulls, stickers, video games, reading, growing things, making my own tea, and hiding inside when it's too hot which is 8 out of 12 months here in Florida. 15+ year recovered addict, survivor, breaking unhealthy habits & cycles one day at a time. Progressive parent. I'm an introvert (INFJ-A), green witch, healer, currently learning herbalism, collector of stories, books, stickers, jars, tiny things, & experiences. Florida Theme Park & Florida State Park connoisseur.
I am one of those weirdlings who takes swapping as a commitment. If I join a swap, it is going out to you, most likely well before the last send date. I am extremely understanding, will contact you before ever rating you down, if I haven't received, or the swap wasn't up to the swap standards, and will contact you for communication. I am a big believer in issues being easily solved with communication. All of my social media is linked above other than FB (I will not accept friend requests there as I post private photos of my chitlins lol) and you can find me on any of those almost daily.
I pledge to check the forum and flakers group to make sure the people who join the swaps I host are not flakers or double profilers, and if I somehow miss something and you are flaked on in a swap I host, I will ALWAYS angel once you have rated the person a 1.
I ALWAYS send & I always rate, usually on the day I've received. If I have somehow missed rating you, please message me and I will fix it promptly. I will always angel any swaps I have hosted if you have been flaked on, and said flaker will be banned from joining in on any future swaps I may host as well.
I re-use/recycle packaging and usable craft materials and I hope you do the same! I compost waste, upcycle, recycle and reuse as much as possible.
I had a short lived obsession with the Twilight Saga & founded a group called Twihards that was active 2010-2011. The group is still open, but not active.

Things you've made. I love things that you took time from your precious life to make. Handmade things are the best gifts because time is the most valuable thing there is in my eyes.
What I Like:
forests, rain, dark and gloomy things
Mushrooms, fairies, garden gnomes
Animals, especially: goats, deer, dolphins, pandas, bears, pigs, chickens, dogs, tigers, birds
Farming, homesteading, cottages
Gardening. Herbs, vegetables, fruits, canning, seeds, flowers, insects
Camping, Florida Theme Parks, though I've never been to Sea World. Florida State Parks, springs, beaches.
Colors: red and black together are my favorite. Greens of all shades, neon blues pinks and greens together, light pink blue and purple together.
Stickers: high quality stickers that are still sticky.
Seasons: Spring. Winter. Fall in other states (Florida is miserably hot)
Aesthetics: Dark Academia, Cottagecore, Gothic, dark paradise
smoke smell on things
junk that is not usable, has food or spills (other than coffee or tea stained paper)
Overly scented items
Stickers that don't stick
I love tea. Packaged or loose. Black or Herbal. I grow my own tea plants & herbs and enjoy mixing them for tea. I especially love the Tazo dessert type teas lately. They're like a sweet treat without the calories.
We are chocolate fiends in my home. The boys are all about the snack cakes/cake/brownies etc while the girls are all about the chocolate. We especially love non American chocolates. Aldi's German chocolates are our Favorites, from milk to dark. Hersheys, Snickers, Reeses, etc tend to burn our throats and aren't as smooth.
Music: I enjoy a bit of music from many different genres. I would love if you send me a playlist as an extra in any swap. I am always searching for hidden gems & music I haven't heard yet (ie: stuff you don't hear on the radio!). Send me your playlist!
TV: We currently use Netflix, Hulu, Disney +, and Peacock, & also have a Roku but I rarely watch tv. When I do, I tend to binge it. Send me your suggestions! I enjoy some dramas, historical dramas, romantic comedies, etc
I am an avid reader. I love fantasy, YA, Romance, and some horror. Reading has been a passion of mine since I was a small child. Lately I have been reading webtoons also. Midnight Poppy Land is my all-time favorite.
I have not been rated for a whole bunch of swaps sadly. Please rate your partners. They put a lot of time and effort into the swaps you receive. Why is this so difficult for people to do?
I have 2 dogs in my home so the occasional hair may catch on a piece of tape but I tend to keep a clean crafting space.
Smoke free home!
Don't forget to rate!
