About Me

Hi there! I love having fun mail waiting for me when I get to the post office and sending a little love to others that I think they'll enjoy :)

I always send my swaps - If you haven't received something from me or there's a problem, please let me know before rating and I'll gladly make it right. If you're having trouble with something you're sending to me send me a note about that too - life happens and I totally get it. Let's make sure this is a good experience for everyone.

I love handmade items - they're always welcome and appreciated!

Comment: Thank you so much for sharing your postoffice with me! I wish I had known about this swap when we were on vacation. We went to the cutest little postoffice outside of Birmingham Alabama. It was obviously a one woman operation and she had it decorated like it was her home. Have a great day! Hugs, Diane

Song Lyrics #4:

Tool - Lateralus

Reaching out to embrace the random. Reaching out to embrace whatever may come. //

I'm reaching up and reaching out. I'm reaching for the random or whatever will bewilder me. Whatever will bewilder me.

And following our will and wind We may just go where no one's been. We'll ride the spiral to the end And may just go where no one's been.

Spiral out. Keep going.

Some of the reminders I need most. Hope they can help you, too.

-- camille

Song lyrics #4 Rihanna same old mistakes Feel like a brand new person, (But you'll make the same old mistakes) Well I don't care I'm in love, (Stop before it's too late I know) Feel like a brand new person, (But you'll make the same old mistakes) I finally know what it's like, (You don't have what it takes) (Stop before it's too late, I know there's too much at stake) (Making the same mistakes) And I still don't know why it's happening. (Stop while it's not too late) And I still don't know

Song Lyrics #4:

James Blunt - Carry you home:

"As strong as you were, tender you go,
I'm watching you breathing for the last time.
A song for your heart, but when it is quiet
I know what it means and I'll carry you home,
I'll carry you home.

If she had wing she would fly away
And another day God will give her some..."

This song always reminds me of 1986 when I lost my bff when I was young. She died because of the result of drinking & driving. Cindy
