About Me

As of 11-15-2022 One of my babies past away Choe she passed away and it's killing me especially that I had choe sense I was in middle school it's only been 2 days and I am still upset so if you don't see on here as much that is why because I am trying to get my emotions under control but currently all I want to do is cry

that my As of 9-11-2021 Knowing that one of my best friends🤞 just passed away and I was first to get the call sucks and I need him more than anything in the world 🌎 and knowing that he’s gone left me it hurts💔 no matter what I was going through I always had you 🤞that I could call text no matter what or call you no matter what the time of day it was ❤️ you know that I love a lot but you are own person I need you will always be my first love 💕 and that will never change ever #bestfriends #alwaysloveyou no matter what kind of arguing or fighting I know you were their #RIP make those stars shine bright up there in haven

So please forgive me if I don't join as many as many swaps this is the hardest thing that I am going through

Come take a look at my Facebook group I make personal stationery labels etc.. come take a look and join my group my group is private due to my customer's information.


Update:7/2/2020 I do have a new Instagram it is now cmalaina_2020 so come take a look at my page :) and also if you start my own label business of mine I will have my married name on it as my maiden name. Another update as of last week I was assaulted by my rude neighbors over a parking spot so they were going to end up hitting my mom instead of her getting hurt I got into the middle of it and I was the one who got hurt I was just informed by my doctor that I am going to be permanently blind in my right eye

Hey everyone! I am Malaina. I'm 28 years old. I have lived here in Waterbury CT my whole life I was born and raised and breaded it here. I love my town but the only thing that I hate about CT is so hard to find postcards. !! I do have Instagram had to make a new one and still adding pictures will take time. I have 1 cat named (fuzzy) and I also have a dog that is my other child (Boogie). I am a college student majoring in Criminal Justice I have 3 degree's in it already it's a huge passion of mine I believe the criminal justice system is so messed up so I want to be able to help the innocent that doesn't deserve to be in prison or jail at all. I do currently write to people who are in jail and it makes my day to see someone smile and know that someone has a better day because of me.

I found out about this site through my older sister @sal410cat

I've been pen palling for a while, but I never really got into swapping until I saw how much fun it was until my sister was having with it.

I graduated high school two years late from staying back and I have a few learning disabilities so please be patient with me!

So a lot of people have been giving me crap about a thread I started to explain my situation here are my medical issues and I am not afraid to show who I am and my medical conditions I have PTSD, Anxiety, Depression OCD, ADHD, ADD, BIPOLAR Disorder, and learning and reading comprehension disorder, speech impediment and I have a few other ones but like I said please respect I am not perfect and never will be perfect at all but able to come on and sign up for crafts is the way I express my feelings and always keeps me calm and keeps my anxiety down.

As of 11/19/2019 I just recently updated my photo of me and my cat Cleo she was there whenever I had bad anxiety attacks and I miss her so much.

“We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has only happened once, and that's why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I'll never forget a single moment of it.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

“They didn’t agree on much. In fact, they didn’t agree on anything. They fought all the time and challenged each other ever day. But despite their differences, they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

Dislikes/ Likes

I do not like when my letters smell like smoke or have heavy sents to them at all due to me having a lot of allergic reactions I don't want to have the take the chance of not being able to read the letters. I do not want to talk about religion and politics at all we all have our differences and don't want to come off rude at all.

I love postcards, washi-tape, old stamps I love to collect them I am a huge fan of Pinterest I am on it all the time if I wasn't in school than I would be on it all day long if I could.

Hot glue gun- need a new one stationery sets or non-stationary sets old stamps and new stamps die cuts, postcards

Pet peeves

One of my hugest pet peeve that I have is that if your going to join a swap and you decided to flake it's not fair to the other people that put work into there swaps, also if you have your address up there please make sure that the address is right because again it's not fair to us that send something and it comes back as unable to forward because the address is wrong it just irks me so much. Also as soon as you get my swap can you please rate me I am really getting tired of people not rating me like what the heck it's not that hard at all

My images

If it wasn't for you to show me how to post pictures I would never learned how to do pictures on my profile @1OldfoolPlanner

This is what I have been feeling to all the people that have made me feel crappy and low about my life in the world well get use to it because I have decided to be a bitch this up coming 2021 get use to the new me


Happy October !!
