About Me

Hello everyone! I enjoy sending and receiving happy snail mail. I live in North Carolina and am a Wisconsin transplant. I have no human babies, just one elderly fur-baby - Mr. Carter the Cat.

I mainly like to do postcard, notecard, journal and letter swaps; so please do not feel it is necessary to send any extras items to earn a heart. I already have way, way too much in my inventory!

Favorite Books

I enjoy most books, historical fiction, travel memoirs, and biographies. I will read just about anything, there have been maybe two or three books I started but did not finish because I did not like them.

Favorite Crafts

I started making cards last year; so I'm not very good at it yet (ha ha!), but I am improving; and have discovered that I do not have as much time for it as I thought I would.


Postcrossing is my version of armchair traveling! I love to travel, and Postcrossing helps with the travel bug. I am currently in the initial stages of planning my next trip which will be either Morocco or walking the Camino de Santiago - I'm undecided right now. So any recommendations or suggestions would be appreciated.

Walking / hiking and generally being outdoors, but there is nothing about camping that I enjoy - it's too much work to be enjoyable.

Favorite Television

I'm not much of a TV or movie watcher, but I will make an effort to watch the Green Bay Packers if they are ever shown on our local station - which is rare!


I love all things stationery (paper, notecards, journals, stickers, washi tape & pens);

All things pineapple;

I have become obsessed with the 'hello' motif;

I'm a Francophile so that includes anything French related (Eiffel Tower, macaroons, lavender, berets, etc.);

Journal prompts;


Religious items: I am a Christian and I enjoy learning about the various religions of the world. Feel free to send something related to your faith for learning purposes. They are all fascinating, and the 3 monotheistic religions are very closely related.




Animals: Cats, Hedgehogs, Llamas, Otters, Owls, and Giraffes (adult appropriate ones are a challenge to find); and

Vespa / scooter - I have always wanted one, hopefully someday I'll own one.


Glitter - it usually ends up all over the house and my face!

Hello Kitty - yes, I'm a cat person, but I simply do not appreciate Hello Kitty items.


Cosmetics, bath and body products - I love them, but I now have allergies to a multitude of the ingredients :(


I have recently discovered that I Iike earl grey, mint, and chai teas. I like trying different flavors, so feel free to send others you think I may like.

Comment: thank you Candace, got the diary a few days ago but have been too busy to have time to look at it. We are having a rare snow storm, so today I get to sit on the couch with a coffee and enjoy some reading. :}
