About Me

9/12/22: I'm took a break from Swap-bot in August because of a vacation and I also just opened a business. I planned to return earlier in September, but my soul dog got sick and subsequently passed so I needed some more time to heal from that. But I am back now and I plan to continue the Brighten My Week Notecard series and the Swap The Rainbow Series.

My name is Marie. I live in northwest Wisconsin with my husband Eric. I have a bachelors in Art History and started a masters, but realized it wasn't the path for me, but I still love art!

I run a creative reuse center in my town. So anything crafty or artsy I can't use myself will go in my store to be used by one of my neighbors. :)

I used to have a YouTube channel about postal mail. If you are postal obsessed like me, you may be interested in my videos. Visit me at: Marie Loves Mail

I can not stress enough that I have NO intention of flaking. If you have not received something PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know PRIOR to giving me a bad rating so I can mend it and send a resend if necessary or look up the tracking number if its a larger package.


I've been seeing this cool ABC's of likes and I decided to try it. It seems fun so here it goes:

A-Anime, Absolute Boyfriend
B-Black Butler, Black Mirror
C-Coffee, coffee mugs, Ceres:Celestrial Legend, Christian related, cupcakes, cateye glasses
D-Dogs, Deco books (I'm ok with homers), The Dark Crystal is my favorite movie, Downton Abbey
E-Enamel pins,
F-Foreign Coins, Fruits Basket, Feminism, fashion
G-gnomes/gnome village stuff, glitter
H-Hummingmint, Harujuku
I-Ice Cream
J-Japanese culture, Judy Chicago (The Dinner Party)
K-Kawaii, Kitchy things, Keri Smith, K-Dramas
L-Liquid eyeliner, lipstick, lolita, Lee Minho
M-Mail and mail related stuff, mint green, mint flavor, Merlin (BBC), The Magicians (SyFy)
N- nodda for letter N
O-Once Upon a Time, Orville
P-Passion Planner, pink, pandas, postcards, Pyrex, Pumpkin spice, peppermint
Q-Quilting, Queen Elizabeth II
R-Rainbows, Rockabilly/retro, rubber duckies, Rosario Vampire, recycling
S-Sherlock (BBC), Socks, snowflakes, sewing
T-Tea (my favorites are Earl Gray and Mint), tea cups, teapots, typewriters
U-Unicorns, upcycling
V-Vampire Knight, vintage clothes and brooches, Van Gogh
W-Watermelons, washi tape,

Favorite Crafts

I love to scrapbook and make cards. That eventually turned into a love of making ATCs and Deco books as well. I don't consider myself "good" at any of those things but I sure love it!

I am an unashamed recycler and regifter. If I get something in a swap I can't use I'm going to pass it on because I know someone else can use it (other than throwing it away.) I am also an avid recycler. I love to make things out of something others would throw away. I reuse all the packaging I receive. Please don't be offended if I recycle something.


I use a Passion Planner for my planner because I need to run my life on half hour increments. I highly recommend a Passion Planner for busy people.


While I appreciate any and all extras, please don't send me list pad sheets or napkins. I have so many and I really just don't know what to do with them all since I really don't use them.

I'm not a Disney kind of gal. Sorry.

I HATE OWLS...an owl tried to eat my/parents dog once. He swooped in for the kill and thank God missed. Since then owls and I have not gotten along.

The mustache craze as well is over done. I understand the awesomeness of the original cause in which I support, however the commercialism of putting a mustache on everything to me is over rated and over done. No thanks please.

I REALLY dislike peanuts and peanut butter. I can't even stand the smell so please don't send anything with peanuts or peanut butter in it.

Marie: I got the Magic Box Destash Angel swap from you. Thank you for making good on the swap flaker.

Thank you so much for the angel of the Spooky Night Swap! I love everything! It was so sweet of you to send. I love Schitt's Creek, and love to paint so that was perfect! And the tea is one of my favorites, and the pumpkin mug is so cute! I have a big pumpkin mug, but now me and my kiddo can have matching mugs!

Thank you so much for bringing back the "Upcycled Greeting Card to PC" swap! It's a lot of fun and helps us all reduce/re-use/recycle!
