About Me

First off, I love doing these swaps! I get super excited, will NOT flake, and will always rate. If you do not receive something from me, PLEASE let me know so I can resend before just giving a low rating. Mail arrives late/gets lost sometimes... I'm very grateful to those who share with me. It's fun to connect with people from all over the world!


I'm a 41 year old female introvert & have the mind/sense of humor of a 13 year old boy... I have an emo/witchy teenaged daughter that is French/English bilingual. I'm from New Orleans, LA, USA, but wish I lived in the mountains. People call me a hippie. I have a soft heart, love animals, & am an advocate for the environment. I practice yoga, meditation, & learned Reiki. I make my own homeopathic/natural cleaning products. People also say I'm "dark" since I like everything in black and love cemeteries. (Perhaps because I'm from New Orleans...) I've been a vegetarian since I was 10 & am vegan now. Traveling is the best & I wish I could do it more often. I'm nostalgic, keep journals, take lots of pictures. Reading & Internet are my favorite pastimes, especially when my insomnia kicks in. I'm always star-gazing; they're mesmerizing! Halloween is my favorite holiday. Sagittarius.
I have a cello (but I suck at it!)
In case clothing is involved--I'm 5'7"/67 inches/170cm, slender, usually wear medium, ring size 5, shoe size 8.5.

Favorite Crafts

Iโ€™m very random & have intentions to try everything! I buy all the supplies, then before even starting, Iโ€™m on to the next idea! Lol. I want to try embroidery, punch needle, encaustic wax, macrame, found objects mixed mediaโ€ฆ I used to be very much into photography, but haven't really done it in a while. I make dream catchers & know how to sew. Iโ€™ve made gnomes. I like upcycling: making skirts from old t-shirts. I dabble in ATCs, glue books, journal making, art journals, junk journals, bullet journaling, & smash books.

A few of my favorite things

I LOVE GLITTER & sparkles! Never enough. On everything!

FEATHERS (real)- I collect them. They're my symbol of hope/faith.

MOUNTAINS (snow-capped!) touch my soul! I will live in the Rockies someday!

Definitely into the hippie/ boho, crunchy, "Peace, Love & Light". I have a crystal/gemstone collection.

Astronomy- I'm always stargazing; they're mesmerizing! Favorites are Arcturus & Capella.

COWS are my favorite animal. I love most animals, especially baby ones. And with crowns or flower crowns.

Halloween/Samhain is my favorite day. (Just nothing gory or with mean, ugly, green witches.)

Willow tree: Seriously, when I die, I want to be put in one of those bio urns and I will be this tree!

Anything with feathers, mushrooms, ghosts...is adorable.

I just found out about Scandinavian GNOMES/Tomte/Nisse! Looove them!!

My Daughter

If anyone throws in a surprise for her, she loves black, anything Wicca, crystals, cottage-core, frogs, moths, reading, Hot Topic, Dream SMP/Ranboo...

Favorite Books

I love reading & work in a public library. Always have a book in my bed, a stack on my desk, & hundreds to be read (and a constantly growing list)!!

I tend to gravitate to YA books. The plot lines seem more creative. Lately Iโ€™ve been finding some wonderful Adult Fiction, though. I enjoy lighthearted, funny, and romantic stories. During quarantine, audiobooks became a must, as I can multitask while still โ€œreadingโ€.

Some recent picks Iโ€™d give 5 stars: Anything by Colleen Hoover & Taylor Jenkins Reid; The Brilliant Life of Eudora Honeysett by Annie Lyons; The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo & Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid; Date Me, Bryson Keller by Kevin van Whye; The Good Sister by Sally Hepworth; Casquette Girls by Alys Arden; Magic Lessons by Alice Hoffman; Kasie West, Amy Plum, Cynthia Handโ€ฆ


Comment: Thanks for the New Orleans postcard. I have never dressed up as an adult. And I canโ€™t sew! Sounds like such a great experience. Keep dressing up even as your daughter gets older. Especially if you get trick or treaters.
