About Me

My name is Marie. I live in northwest Wisconsin with my husband Eric and my furbaby R.E.O. 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 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.

Because of my work hours lately its really hard for me to get to the Post Office in person so I have cut down on my package swaps significantly unless the deadline is a known day off for me. I can't send anything from my house because we have had mail and package theft so bad that its been making the news in my area. For flats I use a bluebox, but the one I have the best access to doesn't have Saturday pickup. Sometimes, I use my office mail, but I try not to because it takes them a day to process and then it gets sent to a private company to process before being entered into the postal system. So please be patient with me if the postmark is a day or two off. I extend the same courtesy to all you swap friends.


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.

Comment: HI Marie, I am so glad your mom recovered from covid. My nephew did not have to be hospitalized but he was very sick last July but he also recovered. Thanks for your thoughts and the post card.

Comment: Thank you so much for another nice letter. :) And for the playing cards - you seem to get a lot of them in the mail. :) The one design, like of an elf, reminds me of a set we had at my uncle's cabin. The oddest things always ended up there! :) Thank you for the letter & cards. :)
Comment: Thanks for the Lucky Charms postcard. I'm not sure when I had them last, it may have been when my son was younger. So at least over a decade ago. Idk. That's funny how your coworker handled the stale Christmas marshmallows. Thanks for the card and writing about your experience. ~ Z

Comment: Hi Marie, Thank you so much for the swap you completed and then sent to me. The item(s) you sent me for the swap is/are GREAT!. I really enjoy receiving new items that I can use in future swaps or some other creative project(s) OR Add your project to one of My Collections. I apologize for taking extra time in getting your rating done for this swap. I very much appreciate your completion of this swap and getting it off to me in a timely manner. Colorado is still having problems with the mail. Mail going in and out of Colorado is continuing to be an issue. So, until this issue is resolved, please Be Patient! Thank you for the stickers you sent along as extras. Your Swap-bot Partner, Barbara B. sleepingrover2010

Comment: Marie you are a gem! I was very happy with everything you sent, and have already used some of it for a couple of other cards I sent out. For everyone else - I would swap with Marie again without hesitation. The post office lost her first envelope and I never got it. After talking to her about it, she sent out a second envelope, and I got that one! 10 out of 10 if I could! If the other one ever shows up I'll let you know! Best wishes, Beth
Response: So glad you got this one and were able to use it.

Comment: I love the card, and I hope we both get to show off our fabulous selves before the year is over.
Comment: Thanks so much for the awesome chunk! I'd never seen the Cheetos flavored Mac & Cheese before so this really caught me by surprise. What an interesting concept, I'm glad to hear your husband loved it! I just might have to give it a try! :D
Comment: Thank you for the pretty card and thoughtful note!

Love your YouTube channel, one of the three I follow - the others being the channel of my Mexican penfriend Meli and one on true crime - and your accent is so easy to understand! Keep up the great work Marie.
