*** There appears to be something up with local mail. While I used to see my mailman from Monday -Friday, I am only seeing him in the neighborhood sporadically at the moment. This may slow down both when I receive swaps as well as when they are marked for send out (as I use the local mail drop box the majority of the time). I ask that you be patient as I try to show my mailman the same
*** Somehow some of my mail is ending up at a nice gentleman's house a few streets over. I'm not sure how this is happening as the address is correct. Luckily the gentleman also loves snail mail and is kindly delivering it to me when he goes for a stroll in my direction :) This may cause some delays in receiving swaps.
I am a 30+ year-old mother to the most wonderful boy. We share our home with my cat Satis. I live in beautiful British Columbia Canada which offers a delightful mix of Ocean views, mountain ranges, and mossy forest trails.
I love to learn and experience new things. I would consider myself rather logical but am also they type of person who doesn't want to know how the illusion worked - I want to believe in the magic.
I love to read, journal, do memory keeping and decorative planning, hike, go geocaching, play board and card games, send happy mail, and participate in random acts of kindness projects.
I believe strongly that the wonderful things in life are found in the "small" things. We are all stories in the end, and I simply hope to leave behind a good one, that if I am very lucky will leave the world a bit better than when it started.
I do a lot of decorative planning and stationary-based crafting. I also have a life-long journal habit. Obsessed with washi tape and stickers!
I dabble in clay, painting, drawing, Jewelry making, Cross-stitch, and miniatures.
I would love to learn calligraphy, textile arts, and resin.
Every year I enjoy stretching my crafting muscles by hand-making party decor to make my sons themed birthday party dreams come true :)
I generally lean towards fantasy novels but do dip into other genres from time to time. I mostly prefer long novels but do dabble in manga and short stories.
I love the Shadow hunter books by Cassander Clare. So far my favorite series is The Infernal Devices. I am also really enjoying The eldest Curses.
The Anthropocene Reviewed - John Green
I enjoy all music from Classical to intense foreign screamo. It all depends on the mood that day. "Sometimes you need the music. Sometimes you need the lyrics" Sometimes I want to explore and sometimes I want the comfort of an old playlist.
I'm pretty easygoing and hard to offend and am generally happy to receive anything :) My only hard no is any kind of hate-based content.
My 9-year-old son Ky has really been enjoying all of the mail I receive, and he absolutely loves it every time someone says hello to him :D
If you have children of similar age he would love to receive some mail from them! (a small note tucked in with the swap would be wonderful!). I thought some of you may enjoy the idea as well :D He has gained a pen-pal this way already and I love that he is gaining a love for snail mail :D
Ky's interests are:
