About Me

**** PLEASE SEND ME ONLY WHAT THE SWAP REQUIRES. I DO NOT NEED/WANT ANY EXTRAS. I'M TRYING TO KEEP MY STASH DOWN. PLEASE HELP ME BY NOT SENDING EXTRAS. THANKS! ****

I rate as soon as I receive swaps in the mail. I know the feeling of wondering if the swap made it to its destination. If I haven't rated you, it means I haven't received it yet. Also, please spell my last name correctly. I've been getting a lot of mail with my last name misspelled. My last name doesn't have a "T" in it. :(

I'm happily married and mom of adult children. I'm originally from Hawaii and now live in Arizona. Arizona has hot weather, so please don't mail me anything that can melt.

I left work to relax a bit and spend time doing fun things now that all the kids are grown.

2018: my latest obsession is creating mail art!

I belong to several meetup groups and keep busy going to lunch, movies, volunteer projects, art classes, book club, hiking, etc. with various groups. I enjoy bicycling around the neighborhood. I also love spending time with my husband - we laugh a lot together!

****For postcard swaps, I'd love it if you sent them blank in an envelope if possible. I won't rate down if the swap calls for them to be sent written/naked.****

I just bought a manual typewriter and named her "Bessie." I've always wanted a manual typewriter and finally have one. I love the look of manual type.

I buy my postage stamps from a stamp dealer, so I try to put interesting stamps on whatever I mail out (when my stash is full). I also have cancelled stamps from around the world that I sometimes use to decorate my outgoing mail.

I love shopping at thrift stores. I usually look for stationery. I have a serious paper addiction and always buy paper/stationery when I see it. I guess it goes with my love of pen palling. I have several pen pals all over the world.

I enjoy listening to audiobooks, true crime podcasts, cooking (stove top, crockpot, pressure cooker), farmers markets, and I'm addicted to coffee & tea. I am a huge animal lover and have 3 dogs in our family plus we take care of a feral family of cats outdoors. I can't imagine our home without any pets. When I'm relaxing at home, I enjoy writing pen pal letters with a cup of coffee.

My husband and I try to travel as much as possible. I love experiencing new cultures and meeting new people.

LIKES:

Great plant-based dinner recipes

Stickles glitter glue (any color)

Rhinestone embellishment stickers

Stationery (letter sets, notecards)

Stickers (no reward please)

Return address labels with my info

Unused USPS stamps

Washi tape

Colorful pens (no black ink)

Green or herbal tea

Embossing powders

Perfume samples

Reusable grocery bags

Gift cards: Dollar Tree, 99c Store, Amazon, Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Barnes & Noble, Starbucks, TJ Maxx, Tuesday Morning, Trader Joe's

RAKs - giving and receiving!

DISLIKES:

I don't like things that don't have a purpose and cause clutter in the house (knick knacks, ornaments, etc.)

Incoming mail that smells of smoke (sorry, but I throw everything out including tuck-ins)

NON-COMMUNICATING SWAP PARTNERS

NON-RATING SWAP PARTNERS - I think it's really inconsiderate for people not to rate. How else will your partner know if the swap made it to you okay or not?

Flakers :

@Wyldflower for Snail Mail Lovers swap

@farmgirl1203 for Grab A New Pen Friend

@irishp for Notecard with Message

@moorenature for AMA: Sender's Choice March

Comment: Thanks so much for that recipe. Those are some of my favorite flavors and ingredients, most of which I have on hand. Just need to pick up some fresh cilantro and an avocado and we'll be cookin'! Yum! Those papers you sent are gorgeous. Can you tell me anything about them? And those stamps! I'm a new swapper and I've been wondering where people are getting these great postage stamps. Where do they come from? You are so kind to send such a lovely swap package! Many, many thanks!

Hi Tracey

Thanks so much for the RAK. There was such a huge amount of glitter. I had baby girl stamps but no baby boy - so they will come in really handy. Thanks & hugs.
