About Me

May 2023 - Update - I'm slowly coming back to Swap-bot to participate in a few swaps at a time. I've missed getting happy mail!

March 2023 - I'm taking a break from Swap-bot. I have a lot going on professionally and it doesn't leave me with a lot of free time at the moment. I will occasionally log in and check messages and return when things have calmed down.

I am a free-spirited Christian lady with a deep sense of joy! I am a worship arts dancer and love twirling flags. I also love anything Pioneer Woman! Her designs and colors are so beautiful!

I enjoy quiet times, the smell of baking bread and fresh cut grass. I enjoy reading, but don't get a lot of time for it.

I'm a psychotherapist (LCSW) specializing in trauma and personality disorders. Although it's challenging and time intensive, I love what I do! I'm also taking steps to open a small private practice on the side. I enjoy learning about all things therapy and trauma treatment focused.

I think tiny houses are adorable! And every house should have either a dog or a cat. They teach us a lot about how we should behave in life!

Flowers, especially poppies are beautiful! I adore wildflowers and walking through fields filled with them. And I adore dandelions! I love their bright, yellow colors.

I like seeing the birds and hearing their songs.

Butterflies are delicate and fragile and so much fun to watch.

I really enjoy nature and spending time in it whether it's hiking, canoeing, walking through the woods - it doesn't matter. I like being in the middle of it.

I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes. I enjoy all types of tea. I like the smell of coffee, but my taste buds are repelled by the taste of it!

I like vintage style chickens and roosters.

I like to have scented candles burning - mostly outdoor smells, floral, nature based scents - I stay away from food based scents except lemon and apple.

I like any of the Gelly Roll Ink Pens by Sakura. Of course I like sparkly things too! Pink, purple and turquoise are my favorite colors. I like unique vintage items, especially ribbon and lace. I'm really getting into pretty letter writing papers and notecards. And calligraphy is a new interest too!

I'm in love with Daphne's Diary magazine and will take new or gently used old ones. I also like Flow magazines, Bella Grace magazine, Stampington's Art Journaling, Somerset Studio, Take Ten, The Coloring Studio and Stampler's Sampler magazines...basically any of the paper or card crafting magazines they have.

John Grisham is my favorite author. I like cute wristlets! Unique stamps are cool. I like anything Kelly Rae Roberts makes. She's fantastic! I would love to get into fancy lettering so any of those supplies would be welcomed. I like unique paper.

Favorite Music

Music I Enjoy:

• Music from the 50s • Some country and bluegrass • Christian Contemporary • Classical music when I need to concentrate • Christian Soaking music. • Love 80's music! • Old school jazz • Swing music.

I don't like heavy metal, acid rock, death rock, hard core rap and things along that line.

Favorite Crafts

Favorite Crafts

• Bible art journaling • Junk journals • ATC's • Altered crafting • Smash books • Vintage journals & tags • Journaling cards • Altering match boxes. • Envelope flipbooks • Paper bag journals • Altered glassine bags • Some knitting and crocheting • Anything crafty

Favorite Television

What I Prefer

I really enjoy all types of ephemera, especially vintage.

I have a washi tape obsession and would love to get some from international countries. I don't think you can ever have enough!

Home-made tags make my heart smile!

Tim Holtz is dark and mysterious in his designs but there's a uniqueness in the ephemera pieces he creates.

I love lace, doilies, tea stained papers and bags. I welcome any type of Christian based ephemera, Christmas themed and Bible scripture themed.

I also like getting die-cuts as I don't have a die-cut machine myself.

I love envelope flip books, altered journals (any size, especially small).

I have a passion for the wristlet bags and adorable art/pencil pouches. I love Dori's, mini-Dori's, journals with home-made signatures.

I like hair ornaments, especially headbands, barrettes, and cute flower clips. I like bangles and bracelets.

I love lemon and watermelon patterned things. Or items with orange or lime slices on them.

Cute bags!!!

Gift cards to Hobby Lobby, Michaels, any restaurant, Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, Regal Cinemas, Yankee Candle, Bath and Body Works, Gas cards.

I all types of fabric, fabric threads, and unique items to use in crafting. I like seam binding, coffee dying different types of paper and fabric.

I like craft stuff like clothing tags, old tins, food wrappers that are clean. When I go out to eat at Chili's, I collect everyone's little brown bag their silverware comes in!

I reuse tea bag wrappers as journal pockets! I don't believe everything has to be bought to be used in crafts. I thoroughly enjoy surfing through thrifts stores and rummage sales for usable items.

I like facial masks and sugar scrubs too! Essential oils are really nice.

I like wristlets, bags, and purses. I also like the grocery reusable bags, especially the Trader Joe's ones. Those are really cool to me!

I love anything from Ree Drummond's Pioneer Woman line.

Favorite Books

I am currently into any of the Little Golden Books or other children's illustrated books. I repurpose a lot of them into journals.

I also really like Richard Scarry's children's books because of the incredible illustrations. They're so colorful!

I enjoy reading anything related to psychology and social work. I adore John Grisham and could read his books over and over. I grew up watching Little House on the Prairie so anything related to Laura Ingalls Wilder I would welcome.


I love all PCs..really! I love anything vintage. I like hotel postcards, especially vintage and vintage Holiday Inn ones. The vintage Holiday Inn ones with the sign are my groove right now! Lol!

I love all animals, EXCEPT bugs, spiders and snakes. I especially like rabbits, llamas, chickens, rabbits, flamingos, domestic and large, wild cats, butterflies, giraffes, sloths, elephants, polar bears, and birds of any kind.

Stuff from the 50s, 60s, and 70s.

Cool architecture and buildings. Barns, tractors and farm things, doors, windows, and mailboxes.

Lighthouses, boats, and water related. Beach and ocean.

Floral, botanical, cactus, garden related. Craft related.

Anything Homemade. I welcome Zazzle ones. Anything that's visually interesting. Quilt or basket weaving.

Local area to where you live. Ones that showcase an interesting place I should visit.

I love winter and autumn themed ones. Thanksgiving and Christmas. I love, love, love cute snowmen!

Basically, I'm open to most PCs except profane, nudity, offensive, violent, crude, or anything along that line.

Thanks but No Thanks

I am not trying to be rude, just trying to save you some expense/waste by asking you please, do NOT send me:

Halloween themed, dream-catcher designs, key chains, coasters or book marks (I don't use them), anything with snakes, profanity or discriminatory language or photos, magic themed stuff, nothing with witches, Twilight or vampire, werewolves, etc., incense, horror or gore, kiddie, reward, or foam stickers or stickers with glitter on them that can come loose, no political stuff or images. Thank you kindly!

Comment: I'm surprised they arrived since a stamp wasn't on the envie - oops! But it was postmarked upside down, I bet the postal machine thought the washi tape was a stamp!
Comment: That sounds like a nice trip!!! Glad you had a great time! Thank you for the PC!
