About Me

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.

Favorite Crafts

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.

Anything from my A-Z likes list above!

  • Kawaii:

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.

THINGS I DO NOT WISH TO RECEIVE:

  • 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.

  • Dislikes: Hunting Down Ratings.

Food & Drink

I love tea. Packaged or loose. Send me your favorite homegrown tea recipe please! I am growing my own herbs and tea plants.

Favorite Television

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.

Random Things

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 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

Comment: As a fellow book lover I’m with you on tearing up books. But, I have found plenty of old books at garage sales that are already falling apart, so I don’t feel quite as bad.

Comment: Thank you so much for such a wonderful swap. You were so generous. I love everything you chose for me. My middle name is Ann and I needed some printed pagers. The two rabbits on the swing are precious. I collect used stamps to use in swaps and really like the ones you sent All of my life I’ve visited family in Clearwater, St Pete Beach and my brother went to college in Tampa. I love the Beaches there. I also liked the way you packaged everything so iit got to me intact. I really appreciate the time and thought you put into making this swap so special for me.
Response: Thank you for your kind words. I am thrilled that you enjoyed it.

Comment: I LOVE these stickers! Including your homemade ones. :) I need to know where you got the heavier-weight die cut ones from. We're a very diverse family and my kids are probably going to try to steal some these from me. Not sure I'll give them up, though. lol Thank you sooo much!
Response: I'm so happy you enjoyed them. The heavier ones from Michaels! They have an entire line of them, made by Capitol Chic Designs and they include diversity of all kinds. I absolutely LOVED them! Inclusion is so important in this colorful world and I am happy to hear how much you and your family enjoyed them. πŸ€— I just looked at Michaels website and the entire line is half off too so perfect time to purchase!
