UPDATED PROFILE 5/7/2021
HI! Please, when labeling my address, write it exactly as is shown. I have been receiving mail lately with the little "We're lucky we found you" sticker from the post office because the #'s are incorrect or missing. My address has too many similar #'s at the beginning so please take care when writing it out.TY
My name is Stephanie, She/her. INFJ. I am in my late 30's, reside in Florida with my other half and two children. I currently have a little hobby farm that consists of many animals and a decent sized garden, that I nourish simply for the love of growing things. I hoard books, stickers, pens, and paper crafting items like a dragon hoards gold. I enjoy long letters, reading and writing them. I love a variety of things from being outdoors, swimming, gardening, walking, to hiding indoors, crafting, and even playing the occasional video game. My ideal life would be to live in a cozy little cottage with a dog, a goat, and some chickens with a little vegetable and herb garden with a forest or mountains as a backdrop in the 70's (Fahrenheit) all year long away from the world. A person can dream right? XD
I ALWAYS send, will never flake, even if I am on my death bed - if I owe you a swap, it Will be mailed to you. I am that serious about my commitments. & 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 keep a notebook to track swaps & personally find it quite bothersome to hunt down ratings so I try my best to make sure I am holding myself to that same standard, but I am also forgiving and do realize that mistakes happen & life gets away from us at times.
I re-use/recycle packaging and usable craft materials and I hope you do the same! =D
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.
As of 2021, I have moved back to paper crafting. I bullet journal and also use a travelers notebook that I enjoy decorating. I just made my first simple junk journal and I'm infatuated! Most swaps I join will be for items I can use for journaling, or snail mail. Because of this, I love flat/flatish items. Vintage themed is my current favorite but I also love kawaii and other things. My letters will slow down when its busy seasons for me but I will always respond. I prefer to write once a month or every 2-3 months depending on how busy life is at the time. I do enjoy swapping flat goodies like stickers, papers, and washi samples, etc, and I enjoy longer letters. If you receive a letter from me it will usually be 2 pages or longer.
(Update 2021:) My sisters no longer participate in swap-bot but I'm keeping the links here for personal reasons.

Anything from my A-Z likes list above!
I'm not fond of Hello Kitty & my daughter has outgrown it as well. I do like the other Sanrio characters. I love ghosts, anything halloween or gothic or witchy, vintage styles, pastels, dark colors (from one end of the spectrum to the other!) I keep name brand kawaii separate from others so I don't mix them up. I used to collect licensed kawaii and sell mixed sets on my etsy but don't have the same passion for it as I once used to. I have an entire box full of deco/pvc tape so if you'd like some samples, message me if you'd like to do a swap. I'd happily take non-kawaii paper items (especially vintage style) in exchange for the deco Samples (not full rolls). Tenorikuma, Rilakuma, Badtz-Maru, Kutusita Nyanko, Sentimental Circus & Monokuro Boo are my favorite characters.
I truly appreciate swaps & the effort everyone puts into putting them together, & I am easily pleased. I do not want things that smell like smoke. We live in a smoke free home and my nose is sensitive to harsh smells. Please no religious items unless it's on printed papers/ephemera that I can cut up for paper crafting. I will gladly accept anything spiritual/celestial/witchy. Above all, do not send me racist or political items.
Sticker dislikes: Please do not send me reward, teacher, planner, kid themed (unless they are extras for my kids), dog stickers (unless it happens to be a full sheet of Shiba Inu), no cutesie animal stickers (unless they are kawaii flakes), no Lisa Frank unless it's as an extra. I can buy a book of 8 sheets of LF stickers for $1 and would prefer not to receive them for swaps. Dollar store sticker sheets. They don't have the quality of most stickers and lose their stickiness quickly.
I love things that you took precious time from your life to make. Handmade things are the best gifts because time is the most valuable thing there is in my eyes.
I love tea. Packaged or loose. Send me your favorite homegrown tea recipe please! I am growing my own herbs and tea plants.
I dont watch cable but we have Netflix and Hulu though I rarely watch tv these days unless I'm sick and stuck in bed.
I am an avid reader. I love fantasy, YA, and some horror. Reading has been a passion of mine since I was a small child & with all of the interests and hobbies I have ever tried and given up on, reading is the one thing that has consistently stuck with me, throughout my life.
Music: I have what I've been told is eclectic taste. In my opinion, I just 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 when it comes to music. Send me your playlist!
I HAVE ANGELED:
I have not been rated for 19 swaps sadly. I used to link them here but my profile is long enough & you get the gist. Please rate your partners. They put a lot of time and effort into the swaps you receive.
Smoke free home (yay!) and loving it!
We have 2 dogs in our home. So if you have allergies, I am not the best swap partner for you unfortunately. We also have chickens, pigs, a goat, and a rabbit but they are outside. XD
