About Me

****11/24/21-When rating Christmas swaps, please note they may not be up to my usual standard of handwriting and time put into them. I'm dealing with POTS and EDS recently diagnosed in the past month and am struggling, but still want to participate. It's taking me 20 minutes for each card, I can't whiz through them like I used to!*****

Looking to trade a lot of Halloween stuff for Christmas-11/21/21

If you ever don't receive a swap from me in a timely manner and I haven't messaged you, let me know and I will resend immediately!!!!

alt text

If I haven't rated you and it seems like an inordinate amount of time has passed, please please contact me! I'm usually in the maximum amount of swaps at all times, so one may get overlooked every now and then, but I do my best to keep my unrated in a separate folder!

I am a 33 year old living with lots of health issues, I love talking to other people who have chronic pain and health issues as well! Spoonies unite!

I am called "unique" all the time. I have 9 piercings, 10 tattoos and pastel pink hair, but am Christian (but not preachy)! Being disabled there's only so many forms of exercise I can do, so I love aerial yoga and swimming, it makes my body feel like it's free to move for once in my life. I'm currently teaching myself to spin poi and I dance with micro Iights attached to Helix Poi! I eventually want to be strong enough to do aerial silks and lyra, as well as juggling, circus arts, as it were!

I love volunteering in my free time. I am involved two faith based ministries, one is a therapeutic equestrianriding program built specifically for children with special needs to help work on their PT/OT/conversation skills, multi-tasking, etc. The second is a pet therapy ministry where we take our certified therapy dogs to facilities like nursing homes, a teen psychiatric facility, hospitals and have several reading mentor programs as well!

I'm also an animal whisperer, I have two cats, Pepper (passed away his birthday, 10/31/18) and Cinna, a leopard gecko, Luna Rose Khaleesi Lovegood and Thackery Binx and Raven Darkholme my two sugar gliders!

I'm currently in the process of figuring out my tiny house plans over the next 3 months!

I love swamps, nature preserves, animal sanctuaries, forests, the big sky we have in Texas! I love anything Texas themed if you love here and have state stuff you want to get rid of.

Unused postage stamps are my #1 needed item. It's so helpful when I get them!

Autum, Winter, and Christmas themed washi!

Anything Alice in Wonderland themed!

Anything involving The Muppets or Jim Henson.

Alphonse Mucha style art.


Salvador Dali.

Sadie Robertson books (I only have Live & Live Original right now).

Duck Dynasty Devotional


Anything demonic/Satanism/Witchcraft/New Age, Cult, Crime or Halloween stuff.

Anything anti-religious (i.e. something that's making fun of someone's religion or being disrespectful), anything that makes fun of anyone else, especially people with special needs or disabilities.

Circuses that use animals except for working animals (horses/dogs) I hate the forcing of endangered animals to perform for people.

I also really dislike Rick and Morty and South Park.

DO NOT SEND-Allergies

If you are a smoker, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know before you send a swap, if you want to just take a photo of it, I will rate a 5! I'm HIGHLY allergic to cigarette smoke (can send me to the ER or leave me bed bound for days). I am extremely, extremely sensitive due to my MCAS which blows any allergies I have totally out of proportion.

Also allergic to any sugar other than stevia, and carbs are a huge no no for me. ๐Ÿ˜ž I'm on a very strict diet to keep my inflammation down.

I'm also not allowed to have caffeine, so herbal teas are fine, no black teas please! โค๏ธ

Comment: Hi! I hope you had a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year! I was so tickled at the outside of the envelope. Life can be so hectic that I lose track of what I'm doing for who sometimes. XD I saw that you were in the hospital the day you wrote my card out! I'm so sorry! I hope you're doing better now! ;; Please be sure to take care of yourself, especially during this crazy time. Take care and much love!!!
