About Me

10/28/23-- My town was wiped out during the Maui wildfire of 8/8/23. It was very tragic. Nearly 100 died in that fire. It was largest mass casualty from a wildfire in the U.S. in over 100 years. Many of us are homeless still and living temporarily out of hotels paid for by Red Cross. If you want to donate, please donate to red cross and specifically to Maui wildfires. It seems Red Cross is temporarily housing us. I attend meetings regularly advocating for affordable temporary housing beside my town until my town gets rebuilt, but it mostly falls on deaf ears. I hope they will change their ways and stop expecting us to pay three times more than what we paid for rent before the fire. Rents were already high and now it's absurd. Any other natural disaster, the towns will put up temporary housing right next to the town that was decimated. But the state of Hawaii and county of Maui are completely dropping the ball on us and leaving it up to the goodwill of Airbnb owners to house us, but they make $12,000 a month from tourists. So it seems tourists have a place to vacation, but the locals don't have housing. We have to ask for an extension every two weeks from red cross which they provide out of the goodness of their heart. God bless their soul.

The sad thing is the suicide rate is very high on Maui now that the fire has happened. We just aren't supported properly. We just really need affordable temporary housing beside our town because that's where our jobs are at and where our kids attend school. That's where our homes will be rebuilt too. Thought the rebuilding process will not be complete for 5-10 years for many of us who lost our affordable homes and houses because our county planning dept and county permitting dept is that slow.

I am new. I like to look at other's profiles and include something that will resonate with them. That way they actually get something they really like and not a bunch of junk.

I would love nothing more than your family recipe on an index card. Lol. I love food. I love family recipes. I love the kind of recipes that people are known for. The ones that their coworkers and friends ask them to make for the potluck time and time again. The ones their children ask them to make on their birthday. I live in Hawaii and we are very big on potlucks and food. Food is a huge part of our culture here. Almost every gathering involves food. Usually coworkers surround their desks around the snack table. Christmas usually involves gifting neighbors, friends, church members, coworkers, the doctor office, the dentist office, the kids' teachers bento boxes of homemade sushi, Nana's banana lumpia, Tita's blueberry cheesecake sectioned off in cupcake papers, grandma 's lemon biscotti, Unko's forage through the Mauna Kahalawai mountains gathering lilikoi to make bars with.

I have an extensive stamp collection of Hawaiian theme rubber stamps I have acquired over the years. That is something unique people will love getting stamped images from me. I love to decorate envelopes with them. So many people leave Maui and leave me their rubber stamps.

I am trying to increase my collection of postage stamps. Please send me mail with postage stamps. Not the simple U.S. flag please! Living on an island in the middle of the largest ocean, makes me appreciate the outside world.

I am increasing my collection of foreign coins, destination keychains too.

Love, love, love mushrooms, cats, the colors blue and lavender. I love lavender scent, peppermint scent.

Christmas is my one and only favorite holiday. I like vintage Christmas. I love ephemera Christmas.

I like origami even though I don't do it much. I admire sewing skills since I have none. I think hsewn or crochet items are the best because those are skills I have not acquired yet.

Love seeing unique art I haven't seen before. I also love to see any creation because all art inspires me. Please send me your handmade art. I prefer that over store bought any day. Love creativity.

Foreign things, like coins, newspapers, candy. Newspapers with foreign languages. Music note paper from the used book store.

I live in Hawaii, but I love the snow. It's very magical to me.

The kind of art I am talented in is handmade jewelry of found items like seaglass or random items at the thrift shop. I like to do wood burning art on driftwood or flat wood. I dabble in painting.

I like -coffee art (my favorite) -tea art -Colorado -mountains -snow -squirrels -uplifting quotes -mushrooms -cowboy theme -Christmas -artistic talent -blue -lavender -seafoam green -Las Vegas -gambling -lottery scratch off tickets -keychains of all 50 states -foreign coins -50 cent U.S. coins -$2 bills with stamp -christmas vintage -christmas flat pieces -handmade Christmas ornament -vintage theme -fabric pieces that are square, at least the length of 12 inches -wood slices of a branch to make Christmas ornaments -postage stamps (collecting them) -stickers

Things I don't like: -anything Hawaii since I live here and have island fever -U.S. flag postage stamps (too plain) -dirty things -edible things (since I probably won't eat them)

If I receive anything I'm not fond of buy still good quality, I will pass it on to the next person who will like it because it appeals to them more.

Please let me know if you don't receive a package or some other problem. I would like to fix the issue before getting a low rating.

About Me

Favorite Website

Urban Outfitters. Their look is intriguing. Especially the home and lifestyle department. Their look is trendy, vintage with lots of throwbacks to various eras. I don't pay much attention to the models since they remind me of 1990's Calvin Klein stick thin which looks unhealthy unless that's their natural body type. Some people really are that thin. The home decor is really nice style though.

Thank you all for the support I have received whole recovering from a natural disaster. I see support everywhere and it really is uplifting. I hear it on the radio, see window art at the carwash of other towns, so much signs to be strong all over my county, and then from all of you too. It really is uplifting. I would never have known how devastating it is unless I went through this, but that's why support is so uplifting because it's so needed.
