About Me

Please alert me if you do not receive anything before rating poorly. I have had people I have not received from who had to resend and have also received letters from Texas 3 weeks later. Also, I am trying to avoid going to the post office in person when I can so have been weighing letters and such at home. I try to include extra postage when in doubt but if for some reason something arrives postage due PLEASE let me know and I will make it right, thanks!

I an new to swapping but enjoy writing snail mail letters and paper crafting.

I am a 41 y/o married female from Pennsylvania. I have 2 grown step-daughters, 1 adopted daughter and 6 grandchildren ages 1-18. I have three dogs, two Labradors and a Rottweiler.

One of my daughters is actually a former sponsor child from Ecuador. I was matched to her when she was 15 years old and going through a really difficult time in her life. We wrote regular letters during her time in the program and I visited her twice. After she graduated and it was permitted she found me on Facebook and we developed a VERY close relationship. Her father passed away when she was young and her mother doesn't have a cellphone and lives in an area without public phone or utilities so I became her surrogate parent. This amazing relationship grew even closer when she got married and was expecting her first baby. Now, 2 years and two visits with her later, I am just "Madre", she is my "hija" and I am "abuela" to her amazingly adorable 1 yr old baby boy who is the light of my life. Nothing is better at the end of the day than receiving a phone video of him saying hello.

I love learning about new cultures and sampling new foods. I love coffee, tea and chocolate.

I am interested in animals, travel, genealogy and history.

Favorite Music

I fell in love with Reggaeton music during a past trip to Honduras.

My favorite artists are: Nicky Jam Ozuna Farruko Zion y Lennox Wisin Don Omar CNCO Pedro Capo Alex Sensation

I also listen to contemporary Christian music. I know, quite eclectic tastes!

Favorite Books

I love reading, especially historical fiction.

I enjoy books written in/about the Regency period in England and Jane Austen is my favorite author.

Travel

I have been to the following states: California Conn. Florida Georgia Illinois Massachusetts Nevada New Jersey New York North Carolina South Carolina Virginia West Virginia

I have been to these countries: Bolivia Ecuador Haiti Honduras Italy Mexico St. Kitts Uganda

Tea

I love tea in all its many flavors and forms, but my absolute favorites are Oolongs. My least favorite are "grassy" greens. No allergies.

Likes

I LOVE stationary, and local purchasing options are limited, so I always enjoy receiving matching letter sets or even matching notecard and envelope.

My favorite "theme" for stationary is vintage.

Washi- I have received quite a few samples and bought some of my own and cannot get enough. Solid, patterned, thin, thick, I love it all.

K-Dramas are also my new COVID addiction. I have been limiting my watching to only on my tablet on the treadmill to help curb my binging of these or I could easily watch 3-4 episodes in a row and my family would never see me.

Comment: How beautiful--thank you. You did a wonderful job of picking items that fit Jane Austen's works. The stationary, the pin, and the tea smells wonderful (and is just nice to look at). I also enjoyed your take on the book. What a fun swap! Susan (brooklynbunch)

Comment: Thank you for joining my swap! I love the postcards💕 especially Napoleon, that was very creative to think of because the book takes place during that time period! And I can’t wait until I get to try to make that recipe! How cool that it’s what they eat the book! Love the tea and the roses stuff as well! I hope you consider joining us for other book club swaps! Happy reading and happy swapping!
Response: I am glad you enjoyed it. I find it is harder to be creative each month. LOL

Comment: I was so sorry to hear about your grandfather's passing, and how your planned escape weekend didn't turn out the way you planned. I hope you have a chance to try again when things calm down.

Comment: Victoria, Thanks so much for your notecard. I can't believe I didn't notice the Pride & Prejudice swap ... one of my favorites! And I can definitely relate to Skittles as an indulgence :)

Comment: Thank you for your letter. Sitting by a warm fireplace during the fall sounds so nice. So far I haven't had too many envelopes come with postage due but yes it is annoying. Sorry to hear that is happening so much. :( Hopefully, it will turn around soon or put in a little envelope on the door of the mail box that says "Postage Due Change Here." :)
Response: Yes, local post office seems to be getting really picky

Comment: Hi Victoria! Thank you for your letter! Your recovery is so amazing! God is so good! Phil 4:13 is actually my favorite verse :) You have such an amazing testimony! It really inspires me to sponsor a child overseas. Your relationship with Andrea is so sweet. What a gift to be called Abuela! God has indeed made you a mother! <3 Thank you for a wonderful reminder of God's goodness :)
Response: I am glad you enjoyed it

Comment: Thanks for your letter. It was well written. You are a good thinker - it was like visiting the times and places you wrote about in my mind. You should be a writer.
