About Me

FLICKR ACCOUNT DOES CONTAIN SPOILERS!!

Hi! I'm Anna, I'm 28 and I live in a small town in Alabama. I have a lovely little family consisting of my husband Craig and my two small children William (5) and Miley (1.5).

I have been fortunate enough to see a good deal of the United States, as we have had to do some traveling with my husband's former job, but this does not stop the fact that I love to live vicariously through others!

Some hobbies and interests of mine.. travel, photography, snail mail, Postcrossing, collecting autographs, jewelry making...

Postcards

Sending postcards is a hobby that I share with my son. He finds great joy in opening the mailbox and finding your cards. :)

Some of our favorites postcard images to receive are:

  • Cartoons

  • Anything Disney - disney characters, disney parks

  • Theme parks/Amusement parks

  • Food, candy, beverages

  • Toys

  • Movies, television, actors

  • Textured cards. Metallic, foils, holograms, glitter

We are always happy with any postcard, but especially love the ones that have a child's appeal.

Favorite Things

Not a wishlist.. just some of my favorite things so you can see what I'm all about:

  • It must be noted that I love all things GIRLY, frilly, feminine, sparkly.

  • Favorite color combos would be AQUA+RED or AQUA+HOT PINK. I like POLKA DOTS.

  • Please save your USED POSTAGE STAMPS and send them to us! We love collecting stamps around here!

  • BLANK POSTCARDS, CUTE STATIONERY and COLORFUL PENS are always welcomed for my postcard/letter writing hobby.

  • We love trying international CANDIES from our swap-bot friends! :)

  • DISNEY! We visited Disney World last summer and are preparing to plan our second trip. We are quite smitten with "the World" after our visit and now enjoy ALL THINGS DISNEY.

  • Favorite Characters: Jiminy Cricket is my favorite Disney character. European Swappers - I love MOOMIN and BARBAPAPA ANYTHING!!

  • Favorite shopping: I love anything from HALLMARK, SEPHORA, ULTA or UNIQUE BOUTIQUES. I also like all the neat little Knicks knacks that can be found near the registers at bookstores. Yeah, that right, I'm a "knick-knack" girl! :)

  • Christmas ORNAMENTS are welcome anytime of the year! I love hanging up ornaments from fellow swap-botters. :)

  • Favorite people?? I really, really like actor ADRIEN BRODY (so slap his image on something and I'll be happy - lol. It's true!). I also like the actor, Jason Schwartzman.

  • Favorite show: ONCE UPON A TIME. Love, LOVE this show.

  • My style: When heading out, I gotta have my JUICY and BETSEY JOHNSON jewelry, always!

  • I love SMALL THINGS best. I love unique and nifty TRINKETS that I can carry in my handbag. These are amongst my FAVORITE THINGS. :)

My Children

My son WILLIAM is four. He loves the AVENGERS. IRON MAN being his favorite. He also really likes JACK SKELLINGTON from THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS and JACK SPARROW from POTC. His other likes are the GRINCH, THE MUPPETS, LEGOS, and WILLY WONKA (the Johnny Depp version) He loves all of the shows on THE DISNEY CHANNEL.

My daughter MILEY is 1.5. She loves MICKEY MOUSE! She also likes in her words "piggies, monkeys, and doggies".

Kawaii

  • Favorite characters: MIKAN BOUYA, TOMATO-CHAN, GORINGO APPLES, PIZZA-LA KUN. Now with that said I realize all those characters are RARE.. so when it comes to sending me kawaii I'm not really picky! Food with faces, big hit with me!!

  • SAN-X is my favorite brand.

  • I prefer STICKER SHEETS to sticker flakes (gasp! shocker, right?) ;)

  • I get more use out of the LARGE MEMOS rather than the smaller ones.

  • Can't get enough of kawaii PENS!

  • Would love to receive a KAWAII MATCHBOX

  • Of course, I love DECO TAPE

  • Other related favorites: kawaii makeup bags, coin purses, pencil cases and pouches, cosmetics, Japanese candies in cute packaging.

  • Not so much.. I'll pass on the skulls, real kids, real animals. Thanks so much!

Comment: Okay first you're name is the same as the actress! Bet you get that alot! And second, i loved both ATCS. I loved the one with the book page on it. That was neat how it had her name on the book page.
Response: Haha, yes I do! Except for her name is Ana and mine's Anna. Anytime someone checks my ID they are like Wow, you're famous! Lol. Really glad you like the atcs. The book page image I found on Pinterest. I search on there and can always find images, quotes and inspiration for ATCs! Looking forward to the next two swaps and please keep up the series - it's been fun. P.S. I've been saving all my HG atcs to an Flickr album if you wanna check them out. :)
