About Me

alt text !

Hello!

Thanks for checking out my profile. My name is Emily and I'm still pretty new here, but have been happily busy with swaps, crafting/creating, and making new penpals every day since joining! I always send forth my best work, and if you do the same and are interested in private swaps, please let me know!

Bio Stuff

I'm a busy single mom of two teenagers. Kinda nerdy- love to read and learn, love classical music and going to the symphony. I listen to NPR, but no other radio or TV. I like many video games, especially RPGs that I can sink hours into. Love Tolkien and other fantasy writers. I don't use social media/facebook. I put pics of my mail on IG, but don't really "socialize" on it. I don't create or partake in drama of any sort. I do not get offended or angered much at all. I try to live mindfully and follow the Middle Way. I practice what I call "moderate minimalism", except when it comes to office and craft supplies LOL. If I could retire today, I would! I'd garden and read, and write, and draw, and sew, and paint, and just watch the clouds go by! But alas, I am only in my 40s and have plenty of workdays yet.... booo.

Sending and Rating

I always send, send on time, send my best work and rate when swaps are received. I would love the same from all of you! However, I know this is a site for having fun and being creative, so I'm not gonna stress over a few days. Just keep in touch, that's always best.

Postage

I have a postal scale and weigh my own envies. I have been an eBay seller since 1999 (yikes) and stay very familiar with USPS rates and regulations. With that said, if you receive postage due, I want to hear about it, not only to send you a surprise something, but to learn from my errors.Thank you!

Wishlist/Likes

I'm really easy to please as I have not been doing this long enough to have a lot of specific needs. However, here are a list of things I am fond of:

  • Non-touristy postcards. They just aren't my favorite.

  • This is super boring, I know but- unused US stamps. I love using vintage stamps, or even just older forever stamps and always need more!

  • Nice stickers, especially holiday! I have like no holiday stickers and they are coming up soon!!

  • Pretty, interesting papers for collage. Magazine clippings, vintage book pages. For my junk/art whatever-you-wanna-call-it journal!

  • Rain, rainy days, rain imagery, stormy weather, clouds...

  • Animals, especially cats, owls, otters, llamas, bugs, bats, sheep, birds, ok basically all animals

  • Flowers, anything floral. Love daises, poppies, sunflowers

  • Plants and succulents- love imagery of potted plants and cacti. Love shamrocks/ four-leaf clovers

  • Butterflies, birds, dragonflies, anything that flies!

  • Celestial themed- sun, moon, stars, planets too!

  • Fantasy things- Dragons, fairies, gnomes, mermaids

  • Books, book related- pictures of books, bookmarks

  • Any Buddhist or Hindu images, ie Buddha, Shiva, Vishnu etc

  • Colors I'm not picky about at all! Love all color - you choose!

Dislikes

I don't really have any dislikes, but I do my very best to send "Happy" mail to people, and hope to receive the same! Like so many swaps say, send something you would like to receive!

Comment: What a great card! And you couldn't know, but the owl stamps are an extra, because my husband got his master's at Rice, and the owl is also his Boy Scout totem! (maybe you're psychic!) We do have one cat, my 14th in a lifetime of cats, and she is a rescue with only one eye. The other one had to be removed when she was found because it was infected. She is a beautiful calico, and we are definitely her "staff." Thanks for the card, and happy swapping!
Response: This is great, thanks for sharing!! =) Yes, we certainly become our kitties staff, LOL!
