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: Thank you for the great Ray Bradbury card! "The Day It Rained Forever" would have been a fitting description for last week; the torrential rain and gloomy skies kept my kitty sleeping inside most of the time, and I felt listless as well. Thank you also for the great vintage-style hand and butterfly stickers!

Comment: Thank you for your letter! I confess that I did not finish the book as I found it a hard read (I don't normally read these types of stories!) I was curious about King Richard after what you wrote but alas, it is time to return my copy!

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.

What a lovely journal. I've started reading it and all the treasures tumbled out like a sweet surprise. Many thanks for sharing your art. You have taken me to a higher plane of journaling.
