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. I am making my way through the the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris, in between reading books for book club.

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.

Hobbies

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!

Likes

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.);

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.

Butterflies;

Pinwheels;

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.

Dislikes

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.

Disney

Teas

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: Sounds like you had a very productive weekend indeed! I've been through your town many times - years ago. Used to live in Liberty Hill, SC . . . so going to a "real" town often meant driving clear up to Charlotte. The notecard was great too (cute & green). I'm browsing the company's website now :-) Thanks so much!

Comment: Thank you so much for sharing with me! Have a blessed day! Thank you so much for the beautiful prayer of encouragement . I hope it is okay with you if I share this with my First Place 4 Health group. It is a Bible study and weight loss group and we all need encouragement when the going gets tough. Hugs, Diane

Comment: Thank you for your answers - the envelope was torn & some of your letter & the PO placed it in a bag- maybe tape all around the sides, I have found I need to always do that for mailing - seems they take a "rough" travel trip. :)

Thank you for the lovely reply to my letter! I would just write back, but I can't promise I would remember to, I'm horrible at that. That's why I like swap-bot, a visual reminder of what I need to send :) I've been down to Charlotte a few times, usually to go to the airport, and my parents live about an hour and a half north east of Vegas! Not in Nevada though. The reply was very sweet.
