Overall Favorites

Hi, my name is Ginger! Below are a few things about me. If you have sent something to me, I will post my rating within a day of receiving. If I am missing something from you, I will let you know so that it can be fixed instead of rating down.

One thing I have learned is my small post office is not savvy with unusual mail, especially sending international, so if there is any issue with not enough postage, please let me know so I can make it right!

Things I am into:

  • Bees! Honeybees (I'm a bee keeper). Butterflies, dragonflies, and moths are nice too
  • Owls (Hedgehogs & Foxes too)(and sloths)(llamas are fun too)
  • Black Labrador retriever dogs
  • Halloween, especially all those scrolly Victorian macabre motifs with crows and bats and witch’s hats
  • Arts & Crafts/Mission style, Art Deco, Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Charley Harper
  • Flowers & plants & cacti
  • Tea, teatime, hygge and fika (tea type: I love green tea varieties the most, but anything yummy is welcome)
  • Quilts & fabric
  • Wooden barn quilts and hexafoos
  • Farm life, homesteading, and cowgirls/boys
  • Scottish thistle and Celtic knot motifs
  • Firefighter motifs and ephemera (adult or vintage)- being married to a firefighter, I tend to need a lot of cards and decorating with this theme!
  • Tarot
  • Catan
  • Red Sox Baseball (especially vintage)
  • Hats (like those big brimmed and boldly decorated ones that are worn to tea and horse races and royal weddings)
  • Wine/beer/liquor cardboard coasters or vinyl stickers
  • Vintage sewing patterns/ephemera
  • Vintage french signs, especially involving haute couture or la patisserie
  • Paper dolls
  • Snow flakes (white, silver, gold)

Favorite Colors: TEAL, plum, olive, sage, navy, cinnamon, honey (fall palette)

I love all things crafty! Started sewing as a child and have never stopped. Clothes, quilts, purses, collages, embroidery. I love buying fabric and imaging the possibilities.

Love all things paper crafty too - cards, gift packaging, scrapbooking, bullet journaling. Just getting into the use of stamps and dies for my paper art.

I love using botanicals and essential oils in making homemade lotions, balms, scrubs and masks.

Cooking and baking. I especially enjoy baking bread and meal prepping. Recipes are always welcome!

I decorate my living space for different holidays throughout the year with a small tree, pillows & quilts, candles, and such for each theme: Victorian valentines - Celtic St patty’s - Bunnies and butterflies Spring - Americana 4th of July - Honeybees - Halloween vintage - Winter solstice of green with white snowflakes


My wishlist of things to receive: Honestly, I really enjoy a well-curated package of fun. If you've put effort into a theme or color scheme, maybe put a little creativity of your own into the mix, I will love it!

I love things made by YOU - this is the way to my heart. I love handmade cards, PCs, ATCs, flipbooks, pockets/folders, embellishments, and long letters about who you are! I also really love a well-decorated envelope!

In the section above are my "themes" I tend to use in my decorating and card making, so if you have something that fits those, great!
In the themes above, I love

  • paper
  • die cuts (store bought or homemade)
  • ephemera (printed is ok)
  • stickers
  • stamped images
  • washi

and such things that help me to create. I often like to create something new with what I receive in my swaps.

I love all the deeply saturated "earthy" fall colors: browns, dusky blue, twilight teal, olive green, cinnamon, wine, honey.

If you are sending die cuts, I love them in neutral cardstock so that I can ink or distress them to match my projects. I use a lot of swirls, flourishes, leaves and greenery stems in my cardmaking, so those die cuts are always appreciated! I also love die cut words.

Books, Movie, TV

I read a bunch, and I listen to a ton of books! I love stories that lift me up or offer up vivid descriptions of far off places. Right now I am rereading the last Outlander book to be ready for the next one coming in November!
Examples of series I love that are widely known...

  • Mary Russell series (& other Sherlock related stories)(really Victorian & early 20th century British mysteries overall)
  • Outlander series (and all the novellas in between)
  • Harry Potter series
  • The Witches Daughter series
  • Harley Merlin series

I am not a huge TV and Movie person, but certainly have my favorites that I watch over and over:

  • Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
  • The Crown
  • All the HP movies
  • Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat
  • Downton Abbey
  • The Muppets
  • Gilmore Girls

About Me

I live in eastern Colorado, USA - Enneagram 5 - INTJ - Slytherin house - Virgo

Would prefer NOT to receive: religious or political themed material. I have no kids or youngsters in my family, so please skip the kids' stuff.

Thank you for granting LSRUS April wishes! The stamps will totally come in handy for items requiring additional postage beyond a forever stamp, and the washi tape is so cute! I love the decorated envie and greeting card as well.
