Since graduating with my MSW in 2014, I have worked as a Counselor at 2 local community colleges and I LOVE my job. I have found the career of my dreams and I am currently working toward completing extra units in coursework related to working with students with disabilities.
My husband and I also bought our first house in Spring 2016 and I've had so much fun decorating and making it feel like home. We live in the desert and are absolutely in love with it. There is no place that I would rather be.
We have 3 adopted kitties (Whiskey, Boris, & Artemis), a pit-bull (Fenway), 2 bearded dragons (Mongore & Spaz), a tortoise (Mortoise), and a savannah monitor (Sketch, aka Bendy Guy).
I haven't had much time to craft, or write letters but I still have all of my supplies and continue to collect things I intend to use when I get back in to crating. Whenever I have a little break from work, I do a little bit of crafting :)
I love crafting and wish I had more free time. I especially love making collage postcards, cards, Decos, and scrapbooking.
I've also tried a few little sewing projects but I don't really know how to sew :(
Oh! I'm trying to keep up with taking photos of my swaps. You can check out previous swaps via my Facebook account or through Photobucket. Check them out if you would like to see the sort of swaps you may be receiving.
scrapbooking, collaging, snail mail, hiking, the desert, owls, owls, owls, lizards, flowers, vintage things, thrifting, collecting, reading, libraries, camping, photography, true crime novels, retro things, gift cards, stripes, plaid prints, art, painting my nails, coffee, tea--LOVE CHAI & FRUIT FLAVORS, honey, books, puzzles, school, lists...among many other things!
Oh--and anything with a pattern on it (stripes, floral, etc...)
Handmade are always the BEST! But of course I'm happy to receive any sort of postcard â™¥
I'm super interested in receiving weird, funky, and different than the norm postcards. Along with handmade postcards, I have mostly tourist-y postcards in my collection. I would like a bit more of a variety.
I love seeing new places, I haven't been out of California too much and have never been out of the country so postcards of fun and funky places are very much appreciated as well.
