About Me

๐Ÿ“จI send swaps ASAP and ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธI promise to rate as soon as I receive. ๐Ÿ‘› If there is ever postage owing please let me know so I can make it right. ๐Ÿ“ซ I mark a swap sent once it has been dropped at the post office, and 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. โณI have waited over a month (more than once this year) to receive or for a delivery on an item mailed even a state away, please be patient with the current mail system.๐Ÿ’Œ

Happy Swapping!๐ŸŒŸ

LIFE: ๐Ÿ•๏ธI live in the Pacific Northwest and love the outdoors. My favorite season are spring and summer, I LOVE the longer days and warmer weather.๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒˆ

๐Ÿ‘ฃI'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.๐Ÿ’“

๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒŽI am a bit of a granola gal, this means I care about the environment, animals, and other people. โ™ปI 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 upcycle items if possible.

I'm in my 40's and have one cat fur baby.๐Ÿฑ
๐Ÿ“–I am a bit old school and love paper over a screen, this applies to reading, planning, and crafting. ๐Ÿ’ŒI 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.๐Ÿ“ƒ

๐ŸกI 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.๐Ÿ•๏ธ

๐Ÿ˜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, he the sunshine ๐ŸŒž.

Favorite Crafts

CRAFTS: ๐Ÿ’–I love crafting, I dabble in many but are a master of none.

๐Ÿ”ฐ๐Ÿ“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.

๐Ÿ‘พI also occasionally crochet small projects like jar cozies, bags, scarves, wrist warmers, and hats.

๐Ÿ‘‘I enjoy beading small things too, like earrings.

๐Ÿ‘œI am a beginner with sewing so I have only made simple projects such as small bags and reusable wrapping paper/cloth.

โœ‚I also enjoy random small projects such as painting rocks, perler beads, embroidery, mixed media, ATC's (I LOVE playing cards and game cards), and modge podge, and I am branching out more into altered books and junk/art journaling.๐ŸŽจ

ENTERTAINMENT

ENTERTAINMENT: ๐ŸŽถ I enjoy most music, with the exceptions being gangsta rap, metal, and screamo, TobyMac is my favorite artist.

๐Ÿ“š I enjoy reading, I usually have at least one fiction and one non-fiction book going at a time. 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.๐Ÿ“‘

๐ŸŽฒAs for other indoor entertainment I enjoy games: board, card, dice games, and puzzles. Rumikube is my current go to game.

๐ŸŽฌI also enjoy many movie genera and some binge show watching. ๐Ÿ“ผ I prefer movies and shows that I feel better after watching, and ones that are not violent. ๐ŸŽฆSome shows I like are "This is Us". "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist", "Stranger Things", and "The Muppet Show".
๐ŸŽฅFor 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.".๐ŸŽญ

๐Ÿ˜I love snail mail and I hope to provide smiles with the happy mail I may provide through these swaps.๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’Œ

FAVORITES

HOBBIES: โค๏ธI love getting outdoors๐ŸŒฒ, LOVE campingโ›บ, hiking, and geocaching. I like the beach๐ŸŒŠ but mountains, trees, and lakes/creeks are my favorite.๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒŒ

๐Ÿ“๐ŸŒปI 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.๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒผ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ› ๐ŸŒฟI 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: ๐Ÿ’šGreen is my favorite color and I also love ๐Ÿ’™ blue. ๐ŸŒŽ I love earth tone colors and bright colors.

I LOVE chocolate, ๐Ÿซdark chocolate being my favorite.

๐ŸŒˆMy favorite seasons are Spring & Summer. I love the sunshine, the longer days, and the flowers.๐ŸŒž

โ˜•I love coffee and tea, both hot and iced coffee is good too, but cold tea is not my favorite way to enjoy it.

๐Ÿ’•I LOVE animals,๐Ÿพ especially Cats๐Ÿ˜ป, Bison, and Bears๐Ÿป.

โค๏ธI LOVE Kermit the Frog from the Muppets, and I enjoy Sanrio characters, especially Hello Kitty (kawaii), and stars amaze me, I love star gazing.๐ŸŒ 

๐Ÿ’ŸI 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.๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜

๐Ÿค—I love cute little things, garden gnomes, kawaii, miniatures, tiny plants/flowers, etc.

EXTRAS

EXTRA: ๐Ÿ’Besides collecting craft supplies, I also collect squished pennies๐Ÿ‘›, Stickers (washi & flakes), Stamps (rubber & postage)๐Ÿ’Œ, National Forest memorabilia๐ŸŒฒSmokey the Bear ๐Ÿป, and anything starsโญ. I also love sparkly and glittery things, and postcards.๐ŸŒŒ. Glittery things are always welcome in the mail.๐Ÿ’Œ

THINGS I LIKE LESS: ๐Ÿ‘ฟRude humor, gore, and being startled, but I am not easily offended.๐Ÿšฏ 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). ๐Ÿ‘ƒI also do not like receiving mail that has been sprayed with perfume. ๐ŸŽจI love all colors, greens & nature colors are my favorite, but pastels are my least favorite, especially purples.๐ŸŽ  โ›„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.โ„๐ŸŽ„ Have a beautiful day and happy swapping!๐ŸŒŸ

Comment: Hi Heather! Thanks so much for all the goodies! Yes, they will come in handy for my junk journal. I actually use to fill out the phone message forms, was a secretary "back in the day". Worked at The Country Club of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri ~ loved that job! Hope all is well in Oregon, I hear you are going to get a horrible snow storm, it's coming our way on Monday. Stay safe & warm ~ Judy
Response: So happy to hear that you will be able to use the goodies.๐Ÿ˜Š. That storm is here but so fortunately we are about 1-2 hours away from its zone, so we just have rain and normal winter weather. I am so happy right now to not be living in Portland.๐Ÿ˜Ž
