I'm 41 and wrote lots of pen pals for years, swapped slams, fbs, etc.
I'm married, no kids, one cat. Jon drives me nuts, makes me crazy, and we fight like cats and dogs, but he's my best friend & my world. We started dating twenty years ago this March 2018! Been married since 9/30/00.
I work in retail, teach knitting and crochet, play flute with a local band, and occasionally blog at http://www.ramblingreviews.com. I live in MA in a small apartment in a small-ish town.
I love planning, reading, history, gardening, canning, camping, photography, animals, classic cars, sci-fi, the ocean, zentangle, weaving, letterboxing, embroidery, adult coloring, yard sales, antiquing, etc
I'm involved with my UCC church and am rather liberal, but try not to talk about religion or politics!
I'm outgoing for my job, but I'm actually rather introverted. I suffer from SAD, anxiety, & a few chronic illnesses.
Random things I love: turtles, cats, rainbows, cosmetic bags to put my pens & markers in, journals/notebooks/pretty notepads, my happy planner, stickers, bookmarks, anything fantasy (especially witches/wizards/vampires/werewolves), European history (especially War of the Roses/Tudors), documentaries, etc.

I am here to make friends & to make some new penpals - as I said above, I'm getting back into the hobby & really miss it.
I am a long letter writer, but I mainly type my letters. I'll try to hand write occasionally, & if you decide to write I'll be happy to share the details of why I prefer to type. I am not a penpal collector, I'm looking for long term friendships & I'm interested in chatting about more than tv, movies, and the weather (don't get me wrong, I talk about that too!). Friendship should develop over time, and the length of my letters will grow as we know each other better. Yours should too :).
My life is insanely busy, and I won't be answering your letter right away. You shouldn't be feeling pressured to either! Penpaling is a hobby and I love it, but it shouldn't feel like work, or stress or a huge commitment, it should be fun. I usually replied in about a month when I used to write letters before, so please keep that in mind, too :).
I also swap slams, sticker & label bags. I don't mind receiving or swapping the occasional fb, lyric, deco, etc. but slams are my jam. I'm up for a few regular, long term swappers & or pals - right now I'm just getting back into it so don't want to swap a lot at once, but eventually I'd like to swap slams by the box/large priority envelope again.
I'd really really love to make some slams for you - if you feel comfortable sending me your address & / or sending me address labels, I'd be so grateful! I'm getting sick of making slams only for me, that's no fun.... :)
