About Me

I participated in InCoWriMo in 2019 but only managed to send out a dozen letters. I'm hoping that I can do better in 2020; if you would like to receive one from me during the 2020 event, PM me with your address!

I always appreciate tuck-ins on swaps, but if you’re my partner don't feel it's necessary or expected to send any.

A few things about me

  • 46yo, female, married w/ 4 kids (2 grownups, 2 teens)
  • atheist homeschooler--no denim jumpers here!
  • I cook several hours a day--all gluten-free and vegan
  • paper addict, esp unusual writing paper
  • washi paper addict as well
  • constantly reading, don’t leave home without my kindle or a book
  • unrepentant potty mouth
  • I love coffee!
  • allergic to nature IRL but gravitate toward colors found in nature, especially autumnal colors
  • after 5pm you WILL find me drinking white wine every day
  • NPR is my jam
  • Most of the day I listen to podcasts while working, driving, etc.--I'm always looking for recommendations, so feel free to suggest. There are about 70 podcasts on rotation in my ears.
  • I like to write and receive long, newsy letters. Usually I write longhand because I'm at a cafe or coffee shop, but occasionally I type (well, on the computer) because it is soooo much faster and my fingers can follow my brain easier that way.

LIKES:

  • books! Fiction, non-fiction, mysteries, thrillers, classics, poetry...I will read pretty much anything except fantasy/sci-fi. I like there to be at least some semblance of realism
  • pen-pal letters
  • sarcasm
  • white wine
  • coffee
  • Indigo Girls
  • washi tape
  • colors: olive/jade green is favorite, followed by purple, silver, mustard, burnt umber, brown, gray, teal, turquoise
  • kilts
  • podcasts, especially humorous or political
  • vintage/retro
  • writing/receiving letters
  • art nouveau
  • art deco
  • mandalas
  • daisies, sunflowers, bonsai
  • botanical

DISLIKES:

  • hair
  • rodents
  • housework
  • stereotypical "girly" stuff
  • animal prints
  • camel toe
  • fantasy/sci-fi
  • traditional holiday stuff; it just seems so artificial, especially xmas
  • GLITTER IS THE WORST. CONFETTI IS HER BITCH STEP-SISTER
  • anything containing lavender (I'm allergic). Love the color, not the plant
  • sweets/candy
  • ribbon/fabric
  • religious or faith-based ANYTHING
  • “cute” or kawaii
  • kiddie/juvenile stuff

WOULD LIKE TO SWAP (I.E., MSG ME AND I WILL RESPOND):

  • shared journals
  • letter-writing paper/sets
  • decorated/homemade envelopes
  • ATC
  • flip/envelope books/tags, etc.
  • unusual images
  • typography
  • old book pages, any language
  • images of: maps, clocks, keys/locks, dragonflies/butterflies, celestial, artistic nudes, goddesses, collage elements, foreign language text
  • tags
  • vintage writing

Postcards:

  • out-of-the-ordinary
  • artsy
  • funny
  • eccentric
  • vintage
  • non-touristy

Comment: I am glad to hear you and your family is safe and well. Time has flown by so fast! I cannot believe it is August either. I went to visit my cousins in Boston last weekend and this was my first plan since COVID lockdown. How is your hand? Are you better now?

Comment: Thank you for the variety of PCs. I esp. like the owl/bird card and shall work on translating the words. I actually lived in Montreal a few years later when one could work without speaking French.
