About Me

Bio Stuff (updated Jan 2019)


Thanks for checking out my profile. My name is Emily and I'm a busy single mom of two teenagers. Kinda nerdy- love to read and learn, love classical music and going to the symphony.Don't really care for TV, but I am going to watch the end of Game of Thrones! I like many video games, especially RPGs that I can sink hours into. Love Tolkien, Sanderson, and other fantasy writers. 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 no longer pick up my mail daily, so I may be a little late in rating you, thanks for your patience! I always send, send on time, send my best work and 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.


Books are a big part of my life and have been since I can remember. I have a Goodreads account, but in general, I mostly read Contemporary, Fantasy, Fiction, Historical fiction, History, Memoir, Non-fiction, Philosophy, Poetry, Psychology, Religion, Science, Science fiction, Self help, Suspense, Spirituality, and Thriller but will read anything if it sounds good. Some of my favorite writers are Tolkein, Alan Watts, Anthony DeMello, Khaled Hosseini, Brandon Sanderson, Anne Lamott, Bll Watterson just off the top of my head.

Wishlist/Likes (but you can give me anything- these are just suggestions)

  • Decorative napkins- just started crafting with these and would love more pretty ones.

  • Thin ribbons & pretty strings

  • small die-cuts/punches- like for ATCs

  • Embellishments- esp flat-backed trinkets and doo-dads to glue onto things.

  • This is super boring I know, but unused US stamps. Always need more!

  • Pretty, interesting papers, vintage book pages for my junk/art whatever-you-wanna-call-it journal

  • Plants, animals, nature are all good

  • Celestial themed- sun, moon, stars, planets

  • Fantasy things- Dragons, fairies, gnomes, etc

  • Tea I like black, esp Earl Grey and Chai, but either me or my daughter will try any kind

  • I do Project Life scrapbooking, so any journaling cards are always welcome

  • For larger/ "box"-type swaps, I would LOVE dies for my new Sizzix machine, rubber or cling stamps, inks (esp chalk ink!) fuzzy socks, hair ties/ scrunchies, and I love all types of scarves.

  • Anything weird, odd, strange- I'm ok with! If you have something you haven't sent for that reason, I'll be happy to give it a home:)

I Don't Need Anymore:

  • Postcards, Notecards, Stickers (unless swap asks for them)

These were previously on my "like" list, but you guys have been so awesome and given me so many, I need to use up my current stash!

Thanks for reading!!

Hi Emily! OMG - just received the address labels and LOVE them! The designs are super cute and I can't wait to use them. I really appreciate it because I seem to have an addiction to address labels. :)
