UPDATE: NEW ADDRESS I moved from Oregon to Idaho (Oct 2021) so please note that if you have an Oregon address on file it's no longer correct.💖
Colder days means it's Christmas swaps time of the year, the best thing about the cold season.
📨I send swaps ASAP and 🙋🏻♀️I promise to rate as soon as I receive. 👛 If there is ever postage owing please let me know so I can make it right. 📫 I mark a swap sent once it has been dropped in the outgoing mail. I do live in the woods where we can get a lot of snow, so please be patient with swaps from me during the -ber months. If for some reason you have not received a swap from me in a reasonable time, please contact me before rating and allow for me to send a replacement or work something out.💌
LIFE: 🏕️I live in the woods/country (seriously I'm the sticks, next to a national forest) and I love the outdoors. I'm surrounded by wildlife (deer, turkeys, moose, and other animals) and am so thankful for it.
👣I'm a non-denominational Christian who prefers to not put God in a box, I just love me some Jesus, the non judgmental kind. I am fairly liberal and I do my best to love and accept all people just as they are.💓
🌱🌎I am a bit of a granola gal, this means I care about the environment, animals, and other people. ♻I LOVE recycling/up-cycling and reusing items when I can and I love thrift shopping/buying second hand. So, often when it comes to crafting I try to re-use and up-cycle items if possible.
I'm in my 40's and have one cat fur baby.🐱
📖I am a bit old school and love paper over a screen, this applies to reading, planning, and crafting. 💌I love snail mail and my paper planner/bullet journal. Which I enjoy adding color to with stickers and colorful things. I also love typewriters, and typing a crisp letter with an older machine.📃
🥑I run a small wellness business with my partner, he also helps keep me sane and is my adventure buddy. 💅And I sell Color Street as a side hustle and LOVE it!
🥾My partner and I love getting outdoors and we enjoy camping, geocaching, and hiking together.🏕️
😁I try to find the good in everything and be grateful even when I am feeling overwhelmed by life. I often say, if you can't find the sunshine, be the sunshine 🌞.
CRAFTS: 💖I love crafting, I dabble in many but are a master of none.🖍️
📏I currently enjoy paper crafts the most: making embellishments, tags, junk/art journals & altered books, greeting cards, stationary, envelopes, etc. I enjoy rubber stamping (I love stamped images), using die cuts, embossing paper (dry and heat), sparkly and glittery stuff, and ephemera.
👾I also occasionally crochet small projects like jar cozies, bags, scarves, wrist warmers, and hats.
👑I enjoy beading small things too, mostly earrings.
👜I am a beginner with sewing so I have only made simple projects such as small bags and reusable wrapping paper/cloth.
✂I also enjoy random small projects such as painting rocks, perler beads, embroidery, mixed media, ATC's (I LOVE receiving playing cards especially when they have cute pictures on them), and modge podge, and I am branching out more into altered books and junk/art journaling.🎨
ENTERTAINMENT: 🎶 I enjoy most music, with the exceptions being gangsta rap, metal, and screamo, TobyMac is my favorite artist.
📚 I enjoy reading, I usually have at least one fiction and one non-fiction book going at a time. I have also recently got into audio books too, so I can craft/swap while also "reading" a book. Some of my favorite books I have recently read include "Fierce, Free, and full of Fire" by Jen Hatmaker (Oh my goodness did I LOVE this book!), "Disconnected Kids" by Robert Melillo, "11/22/63" by Stephen King, :Wildflower" by Drew Barrymore, "The Safest Lies" & "All the Missing GIrls" by Megan Miranda, and "Ketofast" by Joseph Mercola.
I see myself as a lifetime learner so I enjoy absorbing true knowledge and skills.📑
🎲As for other indoor entertainment I enjoy games: board, card, dice games, and puzzles. Rumikube is my current go to game.
🎬I also enjoy many movie genera and some binge show watching. 📼 I prefer movies and shows that I feel better after watching, and ones that are not violent.
🎦Some shows I like are "This is Us". "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist", "Stranger Things", and "The Muppet Show".
🎥For movies I love documentaries (yup, nerd), comedies, dramas, and suspense. I don't have a favorite movie because there are just too many to love, but a few of my favorites include all the Muppet movies, "La La Land", "Mister Magorium's Magic Emporium", "It's a Wonderful Life", "Fantastic Mr. Fox", "Bridesmaids", and "Monster's Inc.".🎭
😍I love snail mail and I hope to provide smiles with the happy mail I may provide through swaps.🐌💌
HOBBIES: ❤️I love getting outdoors🌲, LOVE camping⛺, hiking, and geocaching. I like the beach🌊 but mountains, trees, and lakes/creeks are my favorite.🌳🌼🌌
🍓🌻I also enjoy having a small garden with fruits and vegetables in the summer, along with some flowers to attract the wildlife, and for picking. I love flowers, bird, bees, and butterflies.🌷🌼🐦🐝🐛 🌿I have MANY indoor plants and although I don't have a green thumb I love plants so I do my best to keep them alive and thriving for as long as I can.
MY FAVORITES: 💚Green is my favorite color and I also love 💙 blue. 🌎 I love earth tone colors and bright colors.
I LOVE chocolate, 🍫dark chocolate being my favorite.
🌈My favorite seasons are Spring & Summer. I love the sunshine, the longer days, and the flowers.🌞
☕I love coffee and tea, both hot and iced coffee is good too, but cold tea is not my favorite way to enjoy it.
💕I LOVE animals,🐾 especially Cats😻, Bison, Bears🐻, and Sloths🦥.
❤️I LOVE Kermit the Frog from the Muppets, and I enjoy Sanrio characters, especially Hello Kitty, and stars amaze me, I love star gazing.🌠
💟I also love stickers, and have been collecting them for as long as I can remember. I love that they are little pieces of art that you can brighten things up with. I also love washi tape, it's like stickers on a roll. I also enjoy ephemera, cute napkins, lace and fabric scraps, charms, and other goodies to jazz up junk journals with.💪😁
🤗I love cute little things, 🍄garden gnomes, kawaii, miniatures, tiny plants/flowers, etc.
EXTRA: 💁Besides collecting craft supplies, I also collect squished pennies👛, Stickers (washi & flakes), Stamps (rubber & postage)💌, National Forest memorabilia🌲Smokey the Bear 🐻, and anything stars⭐. I also love sparkly and glittery things, and postcards.🌌. Glittery things are always welcome in the mail💌. I also love tiny cute little things.🧚
THINGS I LIKE LESS: 👿Rude humor, gore, and being startled, but I am not easily offended.🚯 I also am not a fan of onions, stevia (and all fake sweetners), and black licorice (which is tragic that it is so often found in teas). 👃I also do not like receiving mail that has been sprayed with perfume, I am sensitive to many fragrances. 🎨I love all colors, greens & nature colors are my favorite, but pastels are my least favorite, especially purples.🎠 ⛄I don't prefer the cold & short days of winter, but I do enjoy snow people & winter theme things but not a lover of Santa stuff, I know he is happy & jolly but for me Christmas is about the birth of Jesus not Santa Clause.❄🎄 Have a beautiful day and happy swapping!🌟
WISH LIST: 💗Kermit the frog and the Muppets memorabilia 🐈🐾Cat anything, I also love animals in general especially Bison, Bears, Butterflies, Bees, & Birds🐦 (apparently I love several animals starting with B). 🐌💌All things snail mail...
