About Me

My name is Elly. I love postcards, stationery, stickers, cats (especially Siamese), reading (hence my username), Kawaii, and my family! My favorite color is blue. I'm a Roman Catholic - it's okay to send me Catholic/Christian items :-)

August 3, 2017: My hand is much more flexible now. I can write for short periods of time without a problem. My handwriting is decent. It will take about a year for my hand to be completely healed. I feel comfortable joining postcard swaps and participating in wish-list groups.

July 12, 2017: My cast is off - yay! My fingers and wrist are very stiff - owww. I tried handwriting this afternoon and I just couldn't - so stiff and my writing is awful. The doctor gave me homework in the form of hand and wrist exercises. I really need it!

July 5, 2017: Hoping to have my cast removed on July 12. It all depends on how well my hand is healing and what the Doctor thinks of it...

June 18, 2017: My surgery went well and the doctor seemed pleased with her work. I have to use my left hand for most things, slow-going. Looking forward to when I can write with my right hand! It will be awhile but I'm hopeful... Thank you to all who thought of me and prayed for me! God bless you.

June 14, 2017: Saw the hand surgeon today. Very nice lady. I do need surgery. She told me that my hand will probably never be the same... It will take 8 months to 1 year before my hand is as normal as it can be. My hand was smashed worse than I originally thought. If you're a praying person, please pray for me. I'll update when I know the date of my surgery. Update: Surgery is tomorrow, June 16, at noon.

June 9, 2017: Unbelievable. Yesterday afternoon I broke my right hand! How am I typing this? My right thumb and the finger next to it are usable. Yes, my right hand is my dominant hand. Doctor says 4-6 weeks recovery and I may need surgery. Cat-scan on Monday, hand-specialist on Wednesday. Needless to say, I won't be participating in swaps for awhile. I will try to rate the few swaps that I was in recently in a timely manner. Your patience is greatly appreciated! Prayers and good thoughts are very much welcome!

Swap Hosting: If you are flaked on a swap that I hosted please contact me and I will Angel after you have contacted your partner and rated them a 1!

If you don't receive a swap from me PLEASE pm me before rating! I'll do my best to make it right.

It is just a regular headband. The light made the diamond looking things. I was actually getting ready to go to a "Walking Dead" convention in Atlanta. I have on a wig with long braids. :)
