About Me

I'm a 40ish year old writer. I have two books in progress but have been in the longest writer's block in the history of man.

I absolutely love to keep in touch with people with random mail. I guess it' the writer in me. Though sometimes I can be slow in getting back to someone, so it's like getting mail for no apparent reason.

I have two kids of my own, 22, 24. Three stepkids from my late husband. My boyfriend has 3 kids. I also have two beautiful grandchildren. Johnathan and Peyton.

I'm enamored with my cat Earl, which makes me a crazy cat lady, though if I could have a box full, I certainly would.

Favorite Books

I love all kinds of books, romance, biography/memoirs, history, paranormal anything (especially romance) etc.

The Stand - Stephen King

S - JJ Abrams and Doug Dorst

Virals Series by Kathy Reichs and Brendan Reichs

Doodle Art Alley Coloring Books

Deborah Harkness books

The Themis Files books by Sylvain Neuvel

Favorite Movies

My all time favorite is Top Gun. I would have to say that the only movies I really care for are fantasy and romance/comedy. There are too many 'real life' horrors in today's news, I don't want to watch them in my spare time.

Ever After

Dirty Dancing

Beauty and the Beast

Favorite Television

Big Bang Theory







Outlander (ready for season 3 to start already!)

and Anything on the Food Network

I could keep going on, but I've probably already lost you.

Favorite Crafts


rock painting


coloring (yes, like the kids do, but more intricate.)

making envelopes

and have just gotten into making fabric postcards.



Please don't send anything that smells like smoke. I have a horrible allergy to the smell and can't breathe.


I have a love for pigs

country angels

anything fantasy

anything to do with books







tea (decaf only please)

stickers (no kawaii or children's stickers)

Post cards (I love love love love love them!) NAKED

buttons - I'm trying to fill my grandmother's button tin.

stuff for my planner - I am just getting into the planner fad, I'm sure I won't be as creative as others, but I do want things to put in it. I am working on (attempting) a bullet journal this year. Please don't send scrap pieces of paper for my journal, even though I appreciate the effort, I don't want to throw something away that someone has given me.


I'd rather not have religious post cards/cards.

No scraps of paper that even you wouldn't use for something.

NO LADYBUGS. We have some here that bite and they give me panic attacks.

Comment: Thank you for sharing both poems with me!! I enjoyed reading both very much. I also TY for the extra stickers :)
Comment: Oh my gosh I absolutely loved this! The Blackout Poetry was great (and I'll go up to Rated "R" :D ); I loved your rock painting story, and the candidness of everything. I also had to do a double take, seeing Rochester, NY on the ephemera because my parents live there. What a wonderful swap. Thank you so much for sharing! xoxo
Response: I'm so very glad that you like the swap, there were so many things I wanted to tell you but I couldn't fit it all into one little swap. I hope that we get to meet each other again in one of these swaps.

Comment: LOVE love love the pc!!! I remember that i had the exactly same one when i was a child... in that time that indon’t Know What to do whith pcs jejeje
Response: Glad you loved it. I've already forgotten what I sent out LOL so I'm glad it was one you had before. Do you keep your postcards? I have just filled my first photo box and a bit of another with oversized ones.
Comment: I absolutely loved this collection! Thank you so much! xo
Response: I was hoping that you'd like that! I always worry that people won't like what I send, it's the perfectionist in me. I have you for four the magpie one too. I'm so excited! This one will be fun!
mariewilliams810 rated for Dent and Damaged on Oct 25, 2017
Comment: I buy PCs at garage sales too. I think the damage on this one adds to it's vintage character. Thanks for sending it to me.
Response: I'm glad that you liked it. I've not found many postcards at yard sales. I got this lot for $8 and it came out to less than 10 for $1.00
Comment: Thanks for the fun postcard Tami! And thanks for the book suggestion.. I'm always up for new book ideas. I'll check them out
Response: You're very welcome. Hope you will get as much enjoyment out of them as I have. I'm on my second go round on them. There is a real-time reading companion that goes with it and you read along with the characters on the days that it actually happened in the book. It's quite interesting.
USAFwife rated for RM: Collected Journal Round 2 on Oct 9, 2017
Comment: Guess the USPS decided to deliver on a holiday! Just found your swap in the mail box when I checked out of habit. Who knew? Looks like you went above & beyond - thanks so much!! Can't wait to read through it. :)
Response: I don't know about above and beyond, I just send out something that I would want to receive and something that I would put in my own journal. :) Can't wait til next round.

Bhindblueeyes rated for IU: SOC Aug on Oct 2, 2017
Comment: Your SOC letter made my day - I finally got a ride to the PO (can't drive due to concussion). My last name is Czech. I have a Greek penpal who travels to Crete at least once a year - she has sent me many a postcard from Crete, and it is indeed beautiful. Hope the reviews are going well and the maintenance guy stops being a proper jerk :)
Response: Turns out the maintenance guy left and we have to share one from another site, so I don't have to worry about the jerk anymore. :) Yay me!

OrigamiGrace rated for NH: Favorite Quote PC - US Only on Sep 11, 2017
Comment: Thank you! Love the quote!
Response: I've started a journal with quotes that I enjoy. I'm adding them as I get more, and it's been fun getting them to fill the pages.

Poftoffel rated for Create and Write on Sep 3, 2017
Comment: Thank you for the super cute ATC and poem! I love them! I was smiling all the way through the poem - I think my Loki would "say" something like it to me too! He goes outside on a leash but he longs to cross the street and explore all the gardens there... Thank you so much for joining my swap and sending me something so fun!
Response: I wish I could get my cat to go out on a leash. He has a harness and a leash, but he won't do anything but just lay there.

Naeco on Sep 27, 2017:

I just found the "Swapbot Hilarious Fake Junk Mail" swap letter you sent me in Feb. 2016, re-read it, and had another good laugh. I haven't logged into swap-bot for quite a while but came back just to say you brightened my day with your ridiculous letter about buying a junk house! (:

TC on Jun 28, 2017:

Hey Tami, I'm getting ready to take an extended break from SB. Please let me know if the cootie catcher never arrived so I can get it re-sent before I exit.

librarianwes on Jan 7, 2017:

Thanks for the postcard! Your weather sounds a lot like mine--cold cold cold!
