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, 23, 25. 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. I just recently got a part Siamese from the Humane Society, her name is Opal.

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


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 (any except ginger, not a fan)

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

Ephemera of all types


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 the QUOP PC! Color runs are amongst my favorites! I don't think I have any on my agenda this year though :( Thanks for swapping! :)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcards! Much appreciated. And thanks for the nice note. I love how much you love your granddaughter!! :) Happy upcoming first birthday to her!
Response: My little Button is the sweetest, and my grandson too (he hates when I call him handsome - he says, "My name is Johnathon Steven!"), he called me the other day and told me all about the three hits he made at T-ball and how he got one guy out because he was on base. He was so very excited. He's almost 6.

Comment: Thanks for the post card. The books by Deborah Harkness sound like something that I would really like. I'm into all that sort of things. Haven't read any for awhile. Been on a History kick lately. Reading LINCOLN by Gore Vidal now. Kind of deep by I've learned a lot. Thanks again.
Response: The woman who wrote the A Discovery of Witches is a historian which makes her books all that much better because everything is history historically accurate. I think you'll enjoy it.

Comment: I didn't do very well on this either, but it did get me going on journaling more as well. Some great prompts in your list! Thanks! I love the quotes, too.
Response: I've actually started journaling more since then so it's done its job. Hope you keep going too. Hugs!
Comment: Thank you for the unusual Girl Scout tea and the extra color coordinated one as well! I had no idea there were cookie flavored teas. I also very much loved everything about the sentence, "it isn't unusual but it matched the envelope.". Hope things are going better with the difficult neighbor, and that you are feeling good. Happy June to you.
Response: Difficult neighbor problems still abound, but there is a ton of tea out there to help ease my stress. Thanks for dealing with my nuttiness.

Comment: I enjoyed your letter immensely. Its fun to get a window into everyone's world. Hope your tummy is feeling better too. Did you manage to get coffee creamer? I do not have regular pen pals at the moment but will check out that website you mentioned. Thank you for the fun swap!
Response: The tummy is getting better by the day. Not sure if I told you about the hernia repair (I suffer from CRS - Can't Remember Shit) but that's mostly healed. Still didn't get coffee creamer. They don't have a smaller size and I can't see wasting money on a large one that will end up thrown away. If you ever want a pen pal, look me up! :)

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.
