About Me

Please let me know if you do not receive a swap from me, I always send and will send you a replacement if it gets lost in the mail.

Hi!

I am a mid twenties Brooklynite, I love my city and am a proud resident. I am originally from the midwest and attended college in the southwest, so I have a vast appreciation for, well, everything! I love, LOVE skylines of cities (New York being one of my favorites).

I am a self-proclaimed crafter - I knit, love paper craft, photography, sewing, collage and will try any craft once. I also love to cook and appreciate new recipes. I LOVE photobooths, I try to take my photo in any booth I find, and love seeing other's photos and vintage strips.

I love vintage style (40s and 50s especially but not exclusively). Especially vintage ladies, for example pin up girls, pulp, etc.

I will gladly accept handmade postcards - I love receiving a little piece of art! I like themes of all kinds. Feel free to send me promotional postcards from your local bars or restaurants, or totally random ones, I love verity! I also am not easily offended, so if your postcards have nudity or cursing… I won’t take offense.

Favorite Crafts

Paper Crafts (cards, scrapbooking), knitting, crochet, sewing

Favorite Music

I love jazz, blues (billie and ella), some pop (love me some gaga), old school country (patsy), love the oldies, rock and roll, and (yes I'll admit it) show tunes. So, a little bit of everything.

Favorite Books

The Sookie Stackhouse books, Water for Elephants, Marie Antoinette: The Journey, Blonde, Shop girl, so many others, I will try to update as I remember more!

Favorite Television

True Blood, Downton Abbey, New Girl

Favorite Movies

Any Johnny Depp movie, Shop girl, old musicals (White Christmas, Fiddler, Cabaret, etc),

Likes/Collections

any unique crafty or handmade item, Marylin Monroe/pin up girls (vintage ones), cupcakes, food in general, cookbooks & recipes, vintage anything, Halloween, holidays, knee socks, knitting, yarn bombing...

Favorite Color: Green

Comment: Thanks for the great smashbook stuff! I love little envies made from kids book pages. Is that a die or a template that you trace and cut? If it is, I would love to have a copy so I could make my own.

Comment: Hello Caroline, WOW!!! What a wonderful set of postcards you sent me from the list of categories. You sent me 8 categories and I love every single one of them, but my most favorite is whether you serve red or green chile with pinot noir? You just added a great 8 postcards to my postcard collection. Thank you. Barb sleepingrover2010
Response: I'm so thrilled you enjoyed it! I love that the Chile was your favorite, because I took it out and put it back in a couple of times! HAHA... Have fun sending them out!

Comment: Lina! These are the best cards I've ever had for a scavenger hunt - thank you for reading my bio! Once I got a scavenger hunt partner who sent six cards from her home state all manipulated to fit the description of the swap. It got to be funny 'cuz she had to be really creative to make the cards fit... LOL! It's hard to pick a favourite from yours... I think either "frog on bird" or "boys in cups". Thanks again!
Response: I'm so happy you liked them! And such a sweet compliment. :)
