About Me

I am a HUGE lover of snail mail and have all kinds of exciting mail stuff going on. They know me at the Post Office. :)

My interests are all over the place. I love all art, all history and all science. I think that the three are related to each other. I read a lot and write letters, postcards, send greeting cards and make mail art. I like journals of all kinds.

I suppose that I am not very whimsical. Not a teddy bear person. I also kind of hate geese with flower wreaths around their necks and cute little cows. My tastes do tend to be a bit edgy. I love color and abstract paintings. Walls with peeling paint layers fascinate me. I will admit that I have actually made purchases in the grocery store because the packaging is really interesting and I know I can make something out of it later. And I do!

Reading is a passion and I like all kinds of books including books for children and young adults. Reading anything related to any kind of history, science or art is great. I also like literary novels and mysteries. I haven't read a lot of science fiction or fantasy but I 'm open to it. The only things I'm not very interested in are trashy romance and cheap poorly written thriller garbage or religious books.

I am pretty easy to please. I do not expect anyone to create something that is tailor made for me. Express yourself when picking out cards or putting stuff together. I like most things and I am very open to what you want to send me as long as it is not a religious pitch or political.

Postcards I Love-

Art cards of any kind

Artists

Any religious building or sacred space

Children's literature

Anything book related

Funny/bizarre

Map cards

Holiday cards

Botanical prints

Scientific stuff

Historical sites or people

Interiors

Anything that you like and want to share

A note about postcards- I love postcards but I only really love the "naked" ones. That means NO envelope. They travel naked through the post. I love the stamp on the card and a message and the way they get a little banged up. I don't want pristine ones in other words. I doubt that I will ever sign up for a swap involving other than naked cards but I just want to make sure that everyone has the same definition.

Comment: Thanks Karen, your eclipse swap arrived at a perfect time as I'm leaving tomorrow morning to drive to Cashiers, N.C. where I'll be in the "Path of Totality" (I love that phrase) on Monday. A friend lives there in the mountains & I spend a week there most summers. This year I timed my trip to coincide with the eclipse. I'm excited, even though a cloudy sky could spoil things. Thanks for the article. Love your sun/moon stamped image & the heavenly washi :))

Comment: Thank you for the great Heinlein card. He was one of my favorite authors. I have read many of his books over and over. I am not going anywhere for the eclipse. We are only about 25 miles south of Totality so we will get 99% so I am just going to see it from home.

Comment: I actually worked at an amusement park for 6 months so I understand the feeling of avoiding amusement parks. I will confess that I do love them but after working at one it took a long time before I could want to go to one again! Great card and many thanks!

OMGood Goddess! Your journal is amazing. It has so many tactile items, is visually appealing and your personal thoughts are like hearing you speak. I wish I could give you 100 hearts for this.
