About Me

Hi! I'm Michelle from the great Pacific Northwest.
I live with my boyfriend and our furry ones: Rory the Husky and 4 lionhead rabbits: Aro, Shmi, Vader & Ginny.

I geek out with a lot of things, especially Harry Potter. I've had the chance to meet the stars of Supernatural and that was amazzzing!

I'm involved in postcrossing.com and swap daily from my instagram site. I also do chaincards. You can see my collection on instagram using the hashtag #michelleschaincards. It's a fun way to collect different stamps from around the world.

Hobbies: reading, watching tv, hiking, amateur spelunking, sightseeing, cooking & eating (I'm a foodie).

Things I collect: postcards, pressed pennies, shotglasses (got this from my mom), magnets from my travels & anything Harry Potter.

Love Sports- here are my favorite teams:

  • Soccer/Futbol: Seattle Sounders
  • Football: New York Giants
  • Baseball: Seattle Mariners
  • College: Notre Dame & Gonzaga
  • Hockey: Vancouver Canucks
  • Basketball: Golden State Warriors (but Supersonic fan first)

I love watching the Olympics too. Team USA!

Favorite Movies

I like a lot of movies & watch a lot of random stuff but here are some movies I can watch over and over and over:

  • Scott Pilgrim vs the world
  • Some Like it Hot
  • Forgetting Sarah Marshall
  • Mamma Mia
  • This is the End
  • Dazed & Confused
  • Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts
  • 10 Things I Hate About You
  • Armageddon (my guilty pleasure)

Favorite Directors: JJ Abrams, Tarantino, Vaughn, Spielberg, Scorsese, Nolan, Howard, Whedon, Todd Phillips

-anything from Edgar Wright! (love the Cornetto Trilogy!) Have you seen Baby Driver? SEEEE ITTT!!

I'm a Marvel & DC fan so I watch all those superhero movies too.

I'm also guilty of watching those Lifetime Christmas movies during the holidays.

Favorite Books

HARRY POTTER! (I reread them a lot)

anything by James Rollins (met him once!) and anything by J.T. Ellison.

Big fan of dystopian & YA. I also read war memoirs and celebrity biographies/memoirs. My favorite genre to read is Thriller/Mystery. The book I read a lot when I was younger was 'Holes' so that's a personal favorite.


Favorite Television

I watch too much TV but it's sooooo good! I watch them all, I don't have a genre preference. I even watch Korean and Filipino dramas.


CSI: - vegas only, The Walking Dead, Hawaii Five-O (new one) I Love Lucy, FRIENDS, Bizarre Foods, Planet Earth, Hart of Dixie, Younger, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Outlander, Dexter, Teen Wolf, Broadchurch, Stranger Things, Game of Thrones, Homeland, The Big Bang Theory, Bob's Burgers, Revenge, Band of Brothers, The Affair, Dexter, Happy Endings, Meteor Garden - Taiwanese soap opera,

most of these are no longer on air

I know it's cheesy but I've been watching The Challenge series on MTV since 2003 & I love it. (always Team CT)

Favorite Music

I listen to everything but screamo. Absolute favorite is Mumford & Sons. My favorite genre is bluegrass/country and folk. (I love me some Luke Bryan!) I also love MoTown and Musicals. Love the classics- favorites are Journey, Elvis & Scorpions.

Current fav songs: The House of the Rising Sun & Cool Down by Kolohe Kai

Queen Bey, The Weeknd & Rihanna for a good time and Bruno Mars all the time. Billy Joel for karaoke. Also, BSB forever!!


I'm not really picky, I like most cards but enjoy tourist ones the most.

Favorite foreign cards are from Taiwan & Russia. Taiwan always has cute shaped cards, along with food cards & Russia has great illustrated cards- like Lena Gnedkova. (lovelycards.ru)

I also love stamps from the UK & Canada. If you send from there, I'd appreciate some cool stamps besides the generic definitive stamps or postage paid.

here are my favorites: (I like either way but most of my collection is written and stamped)

  • Sunsets/Sunrises
  • Waterfalls
  • aerial city views
  • National Parks
  • Forests/trails
  • Sports Stadiums
  • Dams
  • Lantern Press (originals, not zazzle)
  • Anderson Design Group
  • Lali Riddle
  • Tudor royalty related
  • WW2 related
  • US state maps - i like collecting every type of design but I'd like more of MS, NM, RI.
  • montage of landmarks from a state with the state's name on the front (not WA, OR, GA, MD, PA)
  • all Hawaiian cards (they're sooo pretty)
  • Harry Potter anything
  • State Capitols
  • Disney: Beauty & the Beast, Lilo & Stitch, Aladdin, Princess & the Frog, Little Mermaid, Moana!
  • Pixar: Brave, A Bug's Life, Up, Finding Nemo
  • mountains/volcanoes
  • Thomas Kinkade Disney prints
  • Tsurov Pin ups (Game of Thrones)
  • cards about Scotland or Ireland
  • cards about Saratoga Springs, NY or Charleston, SC

I'll also take Washington cards, even though I live here. I have a special box for all WA cards :) .

Cards I don't care for:

  • Art/Artists cards
  • Blurry zazzle cards (like where you can't read the writing)
  • Black & White - I love color!
  • Quote cards

of course if the swap calls for it, then it's ok.
