About Me

I enjoy everything artsy and craftsy and especially love mixed media art. Joseph Cornell is my favorite artist, and I was lucky enough to see his entire collection at the Peabody Museum and it was so beautiful, it brought me to tears! I also love Klimt, Edward Gorey and Louise Nevelson! I was born and raised in Vermont, but I lived in Colorado for 4 years while I was in the Army. I own two cupcake bakeries and am extremely lucky to be living my dream! My husband and I have 3 girl kitties and 1 boy kitty! I collect Ghoulia Yelp Monster High dolls and halloween is my favorite holiday!

I love all animals and have been a vegetarian for about 5 years.

Favorite Music

The Kooks, The Neighbourhood, Lorde, The 1975, Atlas Genius, Silversun Pickups, 30 Seconds to Mars, Snow Patrol, the xx, Seether and Depeche Mode...just to name a few.

Favorite Movies

I love so many movies, but some of my favorites are The Lost Boys, Fight Club, Se7en, Empire Records, Cold Mountain, The Notebook, Dangerous Liasons, The Village, Sixth Sense, White Palace, Revolutionary Road, Pretty in Pink, Brokeback Mountain, Cloverfield, Warrior, Lawless, I Am Number Four, Twilight, It's Kind of a Funny Story, Drive, Nightcrawler, Enemy, The Babadook, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, Nocturnal Animals, Neon Demon, Call me by your Name, and Equals.

Favorite Television

Some of the shows I'm watching right now are: The Walking Dead, Survivor, Black Mirror, Game of Thrones, The Fall and iZombie.

Some of the show that I loved that are not on anymore are: Gossip Girl, Friday Night Lights, Prison Break, Joan of Arcadia and The OC.

Favorite Books

I read everyday, and George Saunders is my favorite author. Some of my favorite books are CivilWarLand in Bad Decline, Call me by your Name, I am the Messanger, Haunted, The Book Thief, A Certain Slant of Light, The Reader, Dolores Claiborne, Revolutionary Road, Tallula Rising, If I Stay and Warm Bodies.

Things I Absolutely Love

Fall, Edward Gorey, woodland animals, the forest, trees, leaves, washi tape, cats, lambs, owls, bunnies, baby deer, fox, racoons, sea otters, birds, bugs, flowers, sparkly things, cute things, circus/carnival, robots, rocketships, stickers, postcards, animals, toys, small trinkets, polka dots, assemblage art, collages, Joseph Cornell & Louise Nevelson, Halloween and anything related to that holiday like skeletons, spiders, monsters, skulls, spooky, pumpkins, black cats, etc., odd things, horror movies, black and white, zombies, vampires. Handmade things--I LOVE things made by you with love. I really love getting a swap package or envelope with stamps on them instead of that shipping label. If at all possible, please use stamps...thank you!

Things I Don't Absolutely Love

I don't eat meat, so please don't send me a recipe that calls for it.


I love art and artist postcards (especially Klimt, Louise Nevelson, Edward Gorey) animals (especially cats (especially calico), pigs, raccoons, bunnies, woodland animals, deer, fox, squirrels, etc.), bats, insects, scary or spooky cards (Halloween is my favorite holiday so the scarier the better), zombies, vampires, mummies, Frankenstein's monster, Edward Scissorhands etc., fairy tales, nature (trees, leaves, the forest, flowers, sunsets, etc.) Native American, carnival, robot or sci-fi in general, birds, sea animals, octopus, sea horses, strange, dark or unusual.
My husband made this postcard display for me so I can showcase my favorite postcards.

I love postcards naked and stamped. I'd love for you to include a little note or your favorite quote on the postcard you're sending me, and I love stickers on postcards! :)

If I'm honest, I don't love touristy postcards--but, I do want to start collecting map postcards...so if you have one of those I would really enjoy it! (I only have Florida, so far.) If all you have are tourist postcards, I would prefer nature postcards or something like that :) PLEASE READ: My post lady is very nice, but she weighs every piece of mail that comes in and is very stern with the postal rules. Please do not put a puffy sticker on my postcards (I love them, but she will make me pay 22 cents because she says they are non-machinable--I love regular stickers though and she's okay with them :) And, please make sure my address is on the postcard horizontally (even if the lines want you to write it vertically) she will make me pay 22 cents if it is vertically because she says it is non-machinable). I bet I've paid $4 in the last month in postage due fees from the post office for the reasons above :(

Yes! Good memory, Michelle. :-) The quote you shared (on my postcard for the AN: Animal with Stripes or Spots - USA swap) was . . .

"You can, you should, and if you're brave enough to start, you will." - Stephen King
