About Me


Hello dear friends! I am still here. First of all, thank you SO MUCH to all the dear people who have sent me mail and RAKS these last months… I am still catching up with thanking everyone properly. I now officially have a pain disorder on top of my fibromyalgia. I use oxycontin every day to be able to walk and function. I totally stopped crafting for months! But now I am slowly getting back into it. I look forward to doing some swaps again…. So thankful for this community!

Hello! Welcome to my profile! I am Annejo, 34 years old, and I hope you’ll get some inspiration for mail, writing and art, if that’s what you came looking for!





I always have a bit of green in my hair, and I am The Polka Dot lady for my friends. I am a writer, poet and artist, though I feel a bit silly calling myself that. I love to write and draw! I also have a life-long passion for sending and receiving mail. I am a follower of Jesus but I try not to be obnoxious about it. To me love is the greatest commandment and I am absolutely accepting of the LBGTQ community. Let’s accept each other as He has accepted us.

Me in a nutshell:

  • Writer
  • Poet
  • Artist
  • Cat lover
  • Fibromyalgia
  • C-PTSD
  • Houseplant connaisseur
  • Short Stories (mostly Science Fiction)
  • ATC's

I volunteer for a foundation that provides reintegration into society for youths who have problems due to addiction, disability, trauma or a mix of those. I write and create and do administrative duties.

I have two cats!

Loki is seven years old black and white tuxedo: a Norwegian Forest Cat mix. He’s a big floofy boy, with a very strong character. He knows what he likes (and dislikes!). He’s not very cuddly but extremely loyal and always around. I have him tattooed on my leg!

Storm is my kitten, he’s a grey and white tabby. He’s a Norwegian Forest Cat X Maine Coon. Storm is a crazy boy! He LOVES to play and cuddle all day long! He’s the sweetest kitty ever, but a bit clumsy sometimes. He’s also a very big boi already at seven months!

Thank you for your lovely card. I was so encouraged to read that verse this morning, the start of a new day. We need each other’s encouragement. When the one is down we lift the other up in prayer. We are to carry each other’s burdens. Your card means so much to me. :)
