About Me

I appreciate the thoughtfulness when swap partners add extras, but I'm almost out of crafting storage space!

Pokemon Go Trainer Code (I play daily): 9528 2974 7854

A few things about me: (1/2024)

  • 50yo, female, married w/ 4 kids (2 grownups, 2 college students)
  • she/her
  • LBGTQ ally 🏳️‍🌈🌈
  • INFJ
  • Enneagram type 6
  • atheist
  • I cook several hours a day--all gluten-free and vegan
  • constantly reading, don’t leave home without my Kindle or a book
  • unrepentant potty mouth
  • I love coffee all day and white wine at night
  • NPR is my jam
  • I don't really listen to music often; my brain works in words. I also don't watch movies often, maybe once or twice a year. My attention span just doesn't allow me to. TV shows (on Netflix, Hulu, etc., we don't have an actual provider) work better, but I would much rather be reading than watching.
  • I like to write and receive long, newsy letters, though I warn that I'm not terribly efficient at time management so I might not write for a month then three times the following month. I'm full of surprises that way!
  • Mail art delights me. #NoPlainEnvelopes
  • After a hiatus of several years, I am crocheting again, mostly in the winter. I forgot how soothing it can be!

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.

  • Most of the day I listen to podcasts/news shows while working, driving, crafting, etc. If I'm not reading, I'm listening. Some favorite podcasts, in no particular order:

    • Morning Joe
    • The Moth
    • The Rachel Maddow Show
    • The Reidout
    • All In with Chris Hayes
    • Deadline: White House
    • Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!
    • Code Switch
    • Literally Reading
  • glue books

  • collage art
  • sarcasm/snark
  • smart, creative women
  • unique/unusual washi and stickers
  • Indigo Girls, my favorite band and almost the only music I listen to
  • colors: olive/jade green is favorite, followed by purple, teal, turquoise, and yellow
  • bright prints/motifs, but also muted/vintage 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • letter sets
  • unusual paper--textured, handmade, from old ledgers, vintage library cards, telegrams, etc.
  • men in kilts
  • retro images, especially retro women
  • art nouveau
  • art deco
  • mandalas
  • botanical images, esp. daisies, sunflowers, bonsai, moss, mushrooms
  • butterflies, dragonflies, moths
  • unusual typography
  • book/magazine pages, especially vintage or non-English
  • kaleidoscopes & similar imagery
  • pens
  • gluebooks
  • collage

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
  • chocolate 🤢
  • ribbon/fabric
  • religious or faith-based ANYTHING
  • “cute” or kawaii
  • kiddie/juvenile stuff

Favorite Postcard Themes:

  • out-of-the-ordinary
  • feminist
  • books/bookstores/authors
  • artists/art
  • food/drink, esp. coffee or wine
  • humorous
  • eccentric/odd
  • vintage
  • non-touristy

Comment: Thanks for sending the journal back again. :) Swapping this way does tend to bring the same journals back to us a few times, but it can be fun to see how things change over a few months time!

Comment: OMG these postcards are great, thanks!! And I totally agree, I need a crafting sous-chef too. Oops I forgot this, oops I forgot that, now I need something else... sometimes by the time everything is in place, it's time to pack it up for the night!
