Favorite Books

Always reading something and it varies greatly, could be science fiction, fantasy, or historical fiction. Biography, Ted talks(don't know where to put these), or old childrens science textbooks.

I HIGHLY recommend: 3/24/17 -The fifteen lives of Harry August by Clare North

Favorite Music

Spotify is on most of the day, big audio dynamite currently. Frequently Go to: 80s alternative, Wilco, The Who, Monsters of folk, and love finding new music!

Favorite Crafts

Anything handmade by you is greatly loved and appreciated, no matter your skill level.

I enjoy making papercrafts: pocket letters, postcards, atcs, and mail art. I just haven't felt very crafty lately so haven't been joining those types of swaps. I do continue to buy and hoard supplies of course.

I really love needle felting, but am allergic to the wool:(

Thanks for reading. Have a great day!

Thank you for the August AATW wish. I haven't went through it yet. I received it when my dad went into the hospital and he is in the ICU now. Reading is not my strong suit right now. :/ The candies are adorb and I saw the doodle of the opossum and I did know they eat trash. I have a tee with opossum head on it with his mouth open and it says TRASH above it. People look at me weird when I wear it. I love it. Daddy is getting better. It's just a slow process and unnerving. Thanks for giving me something more to look forward to. Love you!

Thanks so much for your letter and package of happy mail! Love all the random bits of international-ness, the pcs, the candy (haven't tried it yet!), and the interesting art notecard. I totally get you on the mixtapes you wish you still had! I've found a few mixes online but nothing like the real deal! Hope you are well and thanks again.

Sending you something non-donutty!

Thank you for the beautiful postcard! The "laughter" quote put a smile on my face :-)

Thank you also for wishing me well - I had surgery on my hand yesterday and the doctor seemed pleased with her work =D

Kindly, Elly (AATW)
