About Me

I’m 38, mama of 4 munchkins, married to my English husband, work as a nurse practitioner with underserved people of all ages.

I’m an introverted extrovert and have a small group of close friends that mean the world to me, but can honestly say some of my closest friends I’ve learned to know through writing.

Love to talk about travel adventures! Have lived in Germany and traveled fairly extensively in both the USA & Europe. Volunteered in the Philippines for 6 weeks and adopted one of our daughters from China. Human rights and helping people around the world with basic needs is important to me.

I am new to swap-bot, but have written for years and been a part of various similar groups! Excited to make more snail mail friendships & see more colorful mail! 💌

I really put effort into the appearance of things I send, the items, and letters. I love getting colorful and similar well thought out things also.

My 10 year old daughter is always looking for pennpals, so let me know if you have a daughter looking for one!

Favorite Books

I am a bookworm! 📖 📚

📚 I even belong to 2 book clubs to expand my horizons and get great ideas. I tend to stick more to memoirs, historical fiction, comedy, some chick books (like “The Rosie Project”), psychological thrillers....

👎🏻 Not a fan of sci-fi, fantasy, dystopian, zombie anything, gory, apocalypse....

📚 Have read very few classics, but am not against trying it out

📚 HAVE LOVED THESE BOOKS📚

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, The Girl with Seven Names, Brain on fire, The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, The Time Traveler’s Wife, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

Favorite Crafts

I taught myself to sew 3 years ago and mainly sew quilts, various kid gifts.... but most recently have been making reusable menstrual pads for girls in 3rd world countries.

I love mail art & creating my own envelopes

Dreaming up various projects. There’s nothing I’m not afraid to try at least once.

Digital photo book making! Many years ago I enjoyed scrapbooking, but have left that part of my life.

Just starting Bible journaling.....a huge art project in itself

What I love to receive:

  • treats, gum, and items unique or products from your area or country (except nothing mint or black licorice please 😉)
  • creative mail art with genuine letters, even if you’re much different than me
  • unique bookmarks (can you have too many?) 😁
  • Travel & funny or interesting stories that you’ve experienced
  • fun socks
  • fountain pen ink (especially unique colors)
  • lip gloss or chap stick
  • washi tape
  • creative, artistic postcards from around the world or with various writings in different languages (ideally not your typical tourist postcard)
  • stationery with lines (my favorite type of paper for reference is by: LaPapierre.com
  • planner stickers or stickers related to snail mail
  • retro looking address labels
  • retro papers/ephemera
  • White & Black teas (esp with fruit flavors added) - don’t care for green or herbal teas, but if you think a flavor is amazing, I’m willing to give it a try
  • various hot chocolate mixes (not a coffee fan though)
  • Sakura Jelly Roll pens

Seeing your heart put into swaps and mail, being yourself and know that I care about who you are & what your experiences are! Everyone has an amazing story, even if they don’t realize it yet! ❤️

Comment: Thank you for your answers. The email never reached me (not even in the spam folder), so good idea also sending via Swap-Bot.
Response: I’ve started to send emails also through swap-bot, because I’ve had difficulty. I notice many do that & figured that’s brilliant.
