About Me

I'm 36 years old, married with a 4 yr old daughter. I work in a library, drive thru crazy traffic to pick my daughter up, drive thru crazy traffic to get home, have dinner and by the time I get her to bed I pass out at my computer from exhaustion. Then I wake, wash and repeat. I need a change! I want to do fun swaps and get to know different people. I started doing Postcrossing but its a slow start waiting for my PCs to get checked across the globe but then I found swap-bot! Post cards are a dying breed. Since everything has gone digital I had completely forgotten where to find postcards. I went to Barnes and Noble who had only one book of postcards left. The old brown barcode on the back wouldn't even scan!

I did a wild goose chase through my entire town and neighboring city just to find only 8 postcards.....at the visitors center! I was forced to order from amazon but recently I came across this shop called "The Scrap Exchange". Its a 2nd hand store when people donate their stuff that they never used. Its a crafters dream! I bought 75 postcards for $3!

I'm not picky when it comes to receiving things but I will definitely check all profiles to see if I can match up to your liking. I always rate kindly even if I don't particularly like what you sent. But all of the things that I've gotten so far are amazing! If you send me something that is not on my list of likes I don't mind. Some people are just so picky. I think its just fun to get something NICE in the mail besides 'lovely' bills and 'awesome' advertisings. I look forward to checking my mailbox now and its a blessing that we have so many options to swap with here! I love this site!

If I am your partner and you haven't received anything from me please let me know and I will definitely replace whatever was lost in the mail because sometimes, some place, some kinda way, something is bound to get lost in the mail because......USPS. Still mad at them for "losing" two boxes I sent to my husband a few years back. Needless to say, none of my insured boxes ever get lost. Moral of the story: Insurance!

Favorite Books

I absolutely love romance YA books. My favorite are: Cloaked, Alienated, Dragons Bait, A Kiss in Time, The Only Alien on the Planet and The Duff

I love YA books because it has innocent love stories without all that nasty smut.

Things I love

I absolutely love homemade postcards!!! They are so much fun to make and I just love receiving them!

I've recently gotten into ATCs and oh my goodness they are fun to do! I took a lot of art classes in college and 10 years later these ATCs are getting my artistic talents flowing again!

I love anime and manga! Inuyasha is still my favorite anime of all time! Other anime that I like are: Sword Art Online, Attack on Titan, Fruits Basket, Toradora, Noragami, Cowboy Beboy, Outlaw Star, Samurai Champloo and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

I have been to the following anime/comic conventions: OtaKon (3) KatsuKon (3) Comic Con NYC (2) Animazement (4) NekoKon (4) LibrariKon (2)

I absolutely love nature and love to hike. I've hiked thru Cozumel Mexico, Blue Ridge Mountains Max Patch Bald Black Mountain Grandfather Mountain and even part of the Appalachian Trail.

I love all animals but my favorite are:
fox, rabbits, seals, wolves, and dolphins. I love anything with butterflies on it!

I love the mountains and the beach.

I love Disney!

I love all things paranormal and mermaids, dragons and unicorns are my favorite mythical creatures. Any fairy creature is neat!

I love the tv shows Canada/America Border Patrol and the X Files!
