PLEASE NOTE AS OF SEPTEMBER 21, 2015, I AM SERVING ON A JURY TRIAL THAT'S EXPECTED TO LAST FOUR-FIVE MONTHS. MY VISITS TO SB AND TIME FOR PARTICIPATION IN SWAPS WILL BE SEVERELY CURTAILED WHILE I PERFORM THIS CIVIC DUTY. THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING
I am a freelance writer. I love creating and thinking up new ideas for creative projects. I spend my days writing, creating and hanging out with my two dogs Charlie (a King Charles Cavalier) and Ginger (an English Cream Golden Retriever).
I speak a bit of French and am learning Portuguese. I love art projects that include foreign words and phrases.
I love things that make me laugh!
I love all things tiny and small and enjoy creating and collecting miniatures.
Since I was a kid, I have been collecting postage stamps. I see them as tiny pieces of art, as well as little windows that offer a view of other countries. I am enjoying the postage swaps here.
I also love photography, crocheting, scrapbooking, dog photos and art, and making Blythe accessories.
I have always loved to doodle. I guess I've been "tangling" for years, but never knew it had a name. I started keeping a sketchbook of my doodles that I use for my letter/envelope art and other projects.
I've just begun to create ATCs and rolos. I have a cool vintage rolodex holder to store and display my favorite creations.
I am hooked on "Pocket Letters" and looking forward to doing some swaps for this fun combination of paper craft, snail mail and swapping.
I enjoy receiving postcards of all kinds. I like tourist postcards, especially of quirky or unusual places or things. It's fine to send these naked or in an envelope.
I collect vintage cards. If you send me these for a swap, I'd prefer to receive them in an envelope. I like vintage postcards that have been previously sent, with stamps too.
My favorite color is purple, any shade. It's always been my favorite. I also love glitter, sparkles and shiny things to wear, look at and use for my craft projects.
I love cartoons, especially The Amazing World of Gumball, SpongeBob and The Regular Show. Lately I've started watching cartoons in Portuguese on YouTube, to help me learn the language better. I also like House of Lies and the Blacklist. While I'm crafting I usually put on HGTV.
I love to travel. I've been to about 30 states, Canada and many countries in Europe. My most recent far flung trip took me to Zagreb, Croatia. I love taking photos of nature and architecture wherever I go. I love collecting little scraps and momentos to use in my crafts.
My family is from the Azores (a group of islands off the coast of Portugal), so I love collecting things from Portugal. My favorite city is San Francisco. I travel there regularly to take photos, eat at my favorite Chinese restaurant and shop for postcards and cute little things in Chinatown. I also love vintage French things and the Eiffel Tower.
Flakers and Non-Raters make swapping no fun!! I always send/do my swaps on time. I check sent as soon as I drop something in the mail, which could be after a mail pick up. However, I usually try to send early. I respect people who communicate with me, so if you're having a problem sending your swap or did not receive mine please let me know! I also pledge to rate the day I receive your swap.
