Hi! I'm Michelle from Washington up in the great Pacific Northwest.
I live with my fiance and our furry lionhead rabbits.
(the bunnies do not come in contact with my mail so don't worry about pet hair!)
I like to travel/do road trips and I'm trying to visit all 50 states. So far, I've visited 36!
-Some of the prettiest ones I've been to (landscape wise) are: Montana, West Virginia, Oregon & Utah!
-Some of my favorite towns/cities are: Saratoga Springs NY, Charleston SC, Missoula, MT, San Francisco & Leavenworth WA.
I was raised between two mountain ranges & a never-ending landscape of trees & I love it. I'd rather live in the country over the city so if you have cards with small towns, I'd prefer it over big city cards.
As for outside the US, I have only been to Canada (I love Vancouver!), Philippines, Japan & Taiwan.
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.
Things I love include Harry Potter, Jensen Ackles, road trips, going to baseball games, pub trivia, writing, cooking (I have lots of cookbooks) and reading.
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!
I watch ALL genres but I prefer raunchy comedies, musicals and heist movies.
Fav movies are:
-Scott Pilgrim vs the World
-Ready Player One
-10 Things I Hate About You
-Some Like it Hot
-Cabin in the Woods
-Forgetting Sarah Marshall
movie franchises I love: HP, LOTR, Star Wars, MARVEL & Mission: Impossible.
I'll watch anything from Broken Lizard & Edgar Wright.
I participate in the POPSUGAR READING CHALLENGE!
I grew up with Harry Potter so that's a fav for me.
I read a lot of books from Raven Kennedy, JT Ellison, Jamie McGuire, Roni Loren, Penelope Douglas, Skye Warren & James Rollins (I met him once!).
FEEL FREE TO GIVE ME BOOK SUGGESTIONS WHEN SENDING A CARD!
My favorite genres to read are Thrillers, YA & Romance. I also enjoy books part of a series. (e.g. Lunar Chronicles.)
I love Little Free Libraries & have visited all the ones around me. I've gotten some really great books from it. It's a great way for me to destash too!
I also used to dabble in fan fiction in High School and wrote 10+ stories regarding Taiwanese pop stars (I went through a phase lol). I'm back to writing again but original stories this time!
I'm a big TV watcher. I try to watch the pilot episode of EVERY new show so at least I know what the show is about. If I like the pilot episode, then I'll go and watch more but I have stopped mid-season on some because I lost interest.
But really, chances are I've watched (or seen an episode) of a show you watch.
Favorite TV shows: 'I Love Lucy' & 'Supernatural'
I also enjoy cartoons & cooking shows.
I've also been watching MTV's 'The Challenge' since 2000 & I'm always rooting for CT.
---I listen to a bit of everything!---
Always a favorite:
Mumford & Son's 'Sigh No More' album
'Poison' by Bel Biv DeVoe
'Still Loving You' by Scorpions
Musicals & Disney songs
The original F4 (Jerry, Ken, Vic & Vanness)
Country- the more twang, the better!
I always listen to 'My Favorite Murder' on my drive to work. #SSDGM
cards from Islands- any is appreciated but it would be awesome if it was a map or aerial view of island.
Looking for specific cards with town name on front or back:
Klamath Falls, OR
Fort Smith, AR
Gary, IN (dad hometown)
^^ even if the city, state card you have is not listed above, feel free to send! :) I'd love to have a card from your town!
My hometown is Olongapo City, Philippines so I'd love any cards you send from that city or country. Hearts for sure if it's from my hometown or surrounding areas (Subic Bay or Bataan).
I love all Lantern Press cards!
Specific Lantern Press I am collecting though:
Starry Night versions
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'm not easily offended and I do have a small collection of nude/risque cards so send them my way if you like. I will also take LGBTQ+ cards too. Love is love!
--Sending in envelope: I love all colors so any envelope color is fine.--
If given an option, I prefer written & stamped.
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:
Things I like:
Washi - samples are awesome
Stamps - I take non-US stamps and make collages
Stickers - not reward or teacher ones
Things I don't like:
Coloring Cards (I always give them away)
Puffy Stickers on PCs (on envelopes are fine)
Quote Cards/ cards with only writing
Tea/coffee - I honestly won't use them.
Paper/scraps (If you do sent any, I give them to other people so they won't go wasted)
Blurry Zazzle (nothing worse than blurry zazzle maps!)
