About Me

Hello,

Taking a swap break in October '18

I am a nature-loving outdoors girl. Besides snailmail and crafting of all kinds I enjoy traveling, hiking/backpacking, canoeing, geocaching, snowmobiling, adventuring in the mountains or deserts, etc.

I've been married to my college sweetheart for 25 years (in May of 2018).

Personality = "mild" INFJ

How did I hear about Swap-bot? - YouTube & Instagram searches for "snail mail" and paper crafting videos of course.

I successfully participated in InCoWriMo for the first time - Feb. 2018

**I do not flake and take great pride in sending something special! If you haven't received my swap, something happened in the mail after it left my hands. Please kindly contact me so that I can resolve any issues before you rate down. I also always rate my partner(s) as soon as I receive something and would appreciate a similar courtesy so that I know my swap arrived safely to you. Thanks so much!

Things I Enjoy

In no particular order:

All things nature!

Flora - particularly wildflowers (I enjoy photographing them and learning the scientific names)

Fauna - CATS! (though I currently don't have pets), woodland creatures (realistic owls, foxes, deer, rabbits, bear, etc.), butterflies

Quotes - inspirational, spiritual, or outdoors

Tea - green, mint, citrus, rooibos

Healthy Living - vegetarian cuisine, organic & non-GMO foods, simple nutrition, container gardening, yoga

Colors - blues & greens

Travel - natural wonders/hiking and historical sites (UNESCO, castles & ruins, etc.), learning about other people and cultures. Countries I've been to (as an adult): Germany (several times, my father is originally from Solingen), Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Canada.

Simple Living / Minimalism Journey - learning to be creative with repurposing & up-cycling

Music - modern classical (Escala, Bond, Lindsey Sterling, David Garrett), meditative, Christian

Books - travel, adventure, and nature related, poetry of Robert Frost, Ann Voskamp, Bill Bryson, mysteries, biographies

My Nursing Career

Craftsman architecture & mission/arts & crafts furniture

Planner / Bullet Journaling & Stationery - I prefer pretty, realistic embellishment (as opposed to cute)

YouTube Channels - Diane in Denmark, The Reset Girl, Paper Tams, The Paper Letter Blog (Vivian), Anna Brim, kaffekananna, seemonay, Between the Steps, Cocoa Daisy

NOT very fond of . . .

In no particular order:

Disney, anime, cartoons, fantasy

Scented items (due to allergies) - this includes smoke exposed items, which will have to be thrown out as breathing is more important than goodies :-)

Anything that could be considered scary, dark, or risquรฉ

Stickers/Embellishments for children or teachers

Candy/sweets (unless good quality dark chocolate or marzipan)

If there are any issues . . .

Please contact me before documenting a rating if there are any issues with my swap so that I can have the opportunity to correct the problem and resend the item(s).

Thank you for being considerate and acknowledging that there can be challenges with materials safely navigating the postal systems.

Postcards

I prefer PCs that depict real animals or flowers, landscapes, nature artwork in the style of Marjolein Bastin / Katie Daisy, unique buildings and historic sites. Either "naked" or in an envelope is fine (sender's choice). That being said, the specified rules of the swap should first apply.
