About Me

Hi, I'm Lyndsae, and Iive in Michigan, where the state motto is “Winter is Coming.” I’m single and don't have any kids, but live with a whole gang of furry little mammals. (One dog, five indoor cats, including an adorable murderous kitten, and a constantly-changing clowder of outdoor strays who occasionally stop by for a meal.)

** NOTE ON SMALL MAMMALS: I humbly beg your forgiveness for any loose dog or cat hairs that may find their way into your swap package. I try my best to avoid them, but....you know....

I work full-time at a local university where I just graduated with my Master's degree. (Officially over-educated, yay!)

In terms of random information, I’m vegetarian, I love to bargain shop (thrift and consignment stores/websites are my jam!), cook, garden (though I’m not that good at it), read and craft. I always seem to have more ideas than time….

NOTE ON SWAPS : I make every effort to send my swaps promptly and rate the swaps I receive as soon as I get them. If you haven't received a swap or a rating from me, please let me know by private message. I'll do the same for you. Thanks. :)


  • paper (printed, handmade, textured, wallpaper, etc.)
  • washi tape--OMG! WASHI TAPE!!!!
  • journals, notepads, notebooks
  • gel pens, sharpies, nice pens
  • neat, pretty office supplies
  • U.S. postage stamps (both forever and postcard)
  • buttons
  • “Mad Men”/mid-century modern
  • 1920s and art deco
  • Winter (including Christmas) things
  • Michigan-related items (photographs, postcards, business ephemera, etc.)
  • Campbell's Soup Kids (especially vintage items)
  • recipes, cooking, baking
  • tea (specifically black and herbal, not a big fan of sweet and fruity teas),
  • nice surprises :)

I like vintage/repurposed/upcycled materials as well as new stuff. I love handmade projects and I’m always looking for new ideas in what my friends are making.


  • laughter
  • shabby chic
  • Americana
  • typography
  • elephants
  • birds
  • cats
  • dogs
  • vintage
  • quirkiness

I like to create all sorts of crafts, and I'm always looking for new ways to stretch myself and learn new projects and techniques. Some of my favorite crafts are notecards, pocket letters, bookmarks and decorated envelopes.

I love bright, vibrant colors and more mellow shades. Some of my favorites are purples, reds, blues and black and white. I also love texture and variation in shape and finish.

I Don't Like

  • children’s items and craft supplies (cartoon/tv characters, googley eyes, pipe cleaners, etc.)
  • Racism, intolerance, meanness
  • weapons or weapon-related stuff

    Food and Drink: I avoid artificial sweeteners in food, drink and medicines. Please, no Aspertame (Equal, Nutrasweet), Saccharin (Sweet n Low), Sucralose (Splenda) or Stevia. Sugar is OK and I like it. :)

Surprise Me

Having said all that: when in doubt, surprise me. I think the fun of swaps is that you don't really know what you're going to get. Be creative and have fun! I'll probably love it.


Comment: Thanks for this generous swap! I love the note, PCs and the homemade envie! I must make the Pastie recipe and I love wolverines too. We still have them here! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
