Hi! I'm Michelle from the great Pacific Northwest.
I live with my boyfriend and our furry ones, 4 lionhead rabbits: Aro, Shmi, Vader & Ginny.
origin of my name: CHOWEFACE came from my baby sister. When she was small, she couldn't say michelle so it came out as "me-chow" which eventually just turned to 'chowe' (she added the E on the end). Close friends and family picked up on it so now I get called CHOWE, CHOWEFACE or CHOWDER.
I geek out with a lot of things, especially Harry Potter. I'm a Slytherin & Pukwudgie according to Pottermore :)
I've had the chance to meet the stars of Supernatural and that was amazzzing! Jensen Ackles is a dreamboat!
Fav place to vacation: Oregon Coast. There are LOTS to see and do. It's a really beautiful place. I love visiting the sea lion caves, Cannon Beach & the Tillamook Factory!
Other Favorite Places include: Lake Chelan & Mt. Rainier in Washington, Saratoga Springs, NY, Charleston, SC (I love walking around The Battery), Disneyworld & Wall, South Dakota.
Love Sports- here are my favorite teams:
I watch the Olympics too. I love watching Winter Olympics more- I watch ski jumping, curling, hockey & figure skating! Team USA!
Seattle's getting an NHL team! So excited!
I'm a big movie buff.. if I've never seen it, I at least know the plot and the cast. I watch ALL genres, I prefer raunchy comedies, musicals and sci-fi.

I also have a lot of movie marathons with Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars & Marvel.
Fav Directors: Edgar Wright, Spielberg, Tarantino, Abrams
(I also watch the cheesy Christmas movies on Lifetime/Hallmark!)
I am currently doing the POPSUGAR READING CHALLENGE
HARRY POTTER! (I re-read them a lot)
Besides JK Rowling, Fav authors are James Rollins (met him once!) and J.T. Ellison.
FEEL FREE TO GIVE ME BOOK SUGGESTIONS WHEN SENDING A CARD!
My favorite genre to read is Thriller/Mystery & YA.
I watch too much TV. I love my DVR and my DirecTV & Netflix.

Not Music-- but Podcasts! I always listen to podcasts on my drive to/from work. It's either Serial, My Favorite Murder or In the Dark.
LOOKING FOR: cards from the Pacific Islands, like Guam, Samoa, Tahiti, etc.
Looking for specific cards with city/town name ON FRONT:
Klamath Falls, OR
Fort Smith, AR
Sun Valley, ID
Specific Lantern Press: I've found that there are 'starry night' versions of certain places and would love to collect as many as I can.
Always on the lookout for PCs from Charleston, SC & Saratoga Springs, NY. Love those two places! .
I'll also take Washington cards, even though I live here. I have a special box for all WA cards & the ones people send me are always new to my collection! :)
Love touristy cards but I do collect a bit of everything!
I do a lot of the Scavenger Hunts and swaps involving multiple cards in an envie so here's a list to make it easier for people sending me cards:
- Russia: blue cats, Tarusov pin ups, Lena Gnedkova
- Taiwan: mailbox and jar shaped cards
- France/Germany: Lali Riddle
collectible cards in a series:
- Lantern Press or similar (love this style)
- PostcardMarket: Flags of the World
- Thomas Kincade: Disney Prints
- PostcardHouse: Icons of Countries
- Nisan Design: World Travel
- Etsy, WowCardShop: all cards from there!
I also collect Postallove Greetings From but I have most of those already :)
I PREFER WRITTEN AND STAMPED CARDS IF THE SWAP GIVES YOU AN OPTION.
Cards I don't care for:
I don't need any scrapbook papers. I collected a bunch as a teen so I have plenty. If you do send, I'll either use it for another swap or give away.
You do not need to send any tea either. Or chocolates, or anything of the kind- postcards are perfectly fine.
I do collect pressed pennies. If you're willing to send one, I'd appreciate it!
