About Me

MY 1 RATING WAS NOT DESERVED! @Lucybelle rated me 1 out of spite for rating her a 3 for unmet swap requirements and sending late. She has 11 ONES and is now partially suspended, suspected of having 3 flaker accounts. I don't know how to fix my rating, and am very saddened to see my rating go down unfairly :(

Flaked on by @LeaTheShark for Witch's Brew unusual crystal & tea swap & @sarahmaus33 for Rated R Spooky ATC

Now enough of the bad swap talk~ Introducing myself, Lyss! I'm a military wife of an active duty soldier and an avid traveler. after roadtripping the entire east coast this year and moving back and forth from New Hampshire to Florida, we just relocated kicking off the new year in the midwest! One of my favorite things to do is admire wildlife. When i was in Florida i loved to see the little geckos roaming around, spot dolphins or sea turtles in the water. I am so thrilled to be in armadillo territory now, i am kind of obsessed with them!

I love traveling and exploring local finds! I adore receiving things that feature your native language (newspaper clippings, cards, book pages) i collect them and also use them in crafts! local goodies have a special place in my heart and i love seeing what local businesses near you have to offer, whether its being gifted something in support of their business or simply recommending me a store you think i would like!

I always love doing private swaps from different countries and items of their origin, never hesitate to reach out if you have any interest!

I have a fascination with bugs, often finding them cute and pretty (moths, beetles, even spiders)

One of my favorite things is handcrafted items. Jewelry especially, and I also love animal amigurumis! i adore hand drawn and hand painted cards, ATCs, etc. I like everything from pastel and neons to gothic/dark. I really enjoy victorian goth aesthetics! I dont wear earrings but adore necklace pendants, rings (although its hard sometimes finding something that fits a 4.5/5) or bracelets! I love gemstones, irredescent beads, semi-precious gem beads, anything creepy cute or weird, "fairy-core" or witch themed (just not pirate-y skull and crossbones). I DO NOT like kawaii things unless its tasteful.. does that sound bad? LOL I adore Pusheen or other cute/weird characters, but please stray away from sending kiddish ones

🌷 Important about me 🌷

i am a self-proclaimed witch with neon green hair 💚 Please do not think this affects anything! We are not evil, we are ordinary kind people here to live in peace. I am very respectful and celebratory of other's diversity and simply ask that you do not mis-judge me because my beliefs may be different from yours.

I was raised in a house where my mother would always use her hoodoo + root worker knowledge for protection, this has made me adore doing hoodoo root work as well- one of my favorite things to do is make gris-gris bags, and there are so many wonderful herbs that are unheard of by many. Due to this i get.. bored.. with magickal things that are too simplistic (example: combining household herbs with a crystal like quartz)

i collect crystals and stones and love them all- However, im not interested in the usual "beginner crystals" tumbles like amethyst, rose quartz, etc. I prefer raw specimens! I collect more unusual or otherwise unique crystals and stones. For example, Oklahoma has a "rose rock" that cannot be found much elsewhere :-) Any specimen special like such i would adore! I also love any wire wrapped crystal/stone pendants!

TEA + Flavor Preferences

For any swaps regarding teas, chocolates etc. i decided to add this in! I am not too picky and like trying new things :-) and i LOVE honey of all flavors! any time i travel, i make sure to stop at a local shop to grab some of the local honey. My favs I've "collected" are blueberry honey from Maine, raspberry honey from Connecticut, and a jar of honey from Germany & Texas from fellow SB members!

favorite flavors: mint, chocolate, blueberry, raspberry, anything unusual

PLEASE EXCLUDE:chamomile, green tea (i prefer black tea!), peach, mango, blackberry or mixed berry flavors

Scent Preferences

When it comes to incense, perfume roll-ons or sprays i dont enjoy anything powdery floral! i like a more crisp fresh floral, like the true scent of a flowers petals. For example i LOVE a true gardenia scent! But dislike a powdery rose smell

my absolute favorite scent is styrax benzoin, it is quite hard to find where i am :(

patchouli is tricky, i find i love some but noticed darker patchouli just smells like wet dirt and moss to me.. eek!

Other likes: nag champa, vanilla, sweet+smokey scents or sweet+spicy scents, fruity+sensual scents

Other Dislikes: ylang ylang, citrus scents like mandarin orange or grapefruit, honeydew melon, mossy scents

Dislikes

  • no anime, manga, or cartoon-y type things
  • Office supplies- please dont send sticky notes, paperclips, highlighters, pens or pencils. I prefer things like journals, notecards, cute memo pads or washi!
  • Kid items. i dread receiving reward stickers, and things like toy story, frozen, elmo, etc.. i do not have kids and have no interest in kiddy things!
  • nothing religious or political, respectfully. With the exception of pagan related items or other magickal elements
  • nothing regarding certain fan bases. Examples: star wars, Harry Potter, Disney etc.
  • dragons
  • stereo-typical witch themed items. You know what im talking about.. the green old Halloween witch with that hat and broom!
