About Me

If sending a note card or postcard and don't know what to write, please tell me about your favorite breakfast (what you eat, where, with who, why you love it...). My son had this on his postcrossing account and we enjoyed reading the answers we got.

My wanted list: Updated October 2017:

  • Christian Christmas ornaments... Anything nativity... Any Christian related Christmas item...

  • Any Christian item (bookmarks, magnets, devotionals, necklace and bracelets...). I am especially looking for Christian Christmas ornaments. Also anything with Philippians 4:13 on it.

  • Pressed pennies or souvenir coins.

  • Stickers for my planner

  • Anything to do with books or reading.

  • Used postage stamps! I am always looking for stamps for a project I am working on. I would love any postage stamp, but I am especially looking for old, foreign and Christmas stamps.

  • If you need some ideas for the flat advent swap or any flat surprise swap, I received a "Reading Bingo" card and would love another. My printer is messed up so any picture that I could use for my crafts, especially like vintage ones, inspirational sayings, anything book related...

  • embellishments for my paper crafts.

  • If you sew, I would really like cloth napkins made from material with neat patterns. No need to make several, one is enough. For example, little frogs, Christian themed, Halloween, anything with a vintage pattern, especially mushrooms... And I would be thrilled with a cloth napkin that has fox on it! I am not looking for your average kitchen design for the napkins. I am looking for something for me to enjoy.

  • little wrapped gifts for my Christmas stocking and for my rainy day basket. Also, feel free at any time to send one for my Halloween treat bag too. Just let me know which place to put it.

  • BOOKS: Christian fiction or non-fiction, devotionals, Bible study, Christmas books, Amish, journals with questions in them, and any type of "end of the world as we know it" books (pandemics, an EMP, the rapture, zombies).

Hello. I am a 43 year old mom. I have twins - a boy and a girl. I now have an empty nest and I am trying to get use to that. I live in the mountains & love it here. I have a little home on my land. I have started a small orchard with apple, peach, cherry, & pear trees. I also have blueberries, raspberries & grapes. I enjoy gardening. I would like to have my own little farm. But not one with lots of animals. Mainly because I don't have enough room for that. I have 4 cats, chickens and a dog who is completely spoiled. I've always been a cat person, but this puppy stole my heart. He is a great pyrenees mix. He is so cute. Dog toys & treats for my pup are always welcome! He's a big boy now, so toys have to be tough.

A little more about me... I am a Christian. I love the Lord! :) I enjoy camping and hiking. I like to look at the sky and especially the clouds. I also enjoy genealogy. One of my favorite places to visit are cemeteries. They are so peaceful. When my twins were very small, we would visit a cemetery and take a picnic. When someone would ask the twins what we did that day, they would say, "We went to the graveyard and had a picnic!" Some found this to be morbid. The twins just thought it was normal.

Favorite Books

I love to read! I love reading my Bible. My favorite book is To Kill A Mockingbird. I read books by Stephen King. The Stand & Cell are my favorites that he has written. I also like Frank Peretti & Ted Dekker, Jeanette Oak & Edgar Allan Poe. I really enjoyed the Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye & Jerry B. Jenkins. One Second After is another of my favorite books & I like almost any 'end of the world as we know it' book. Joyce Meyer, Billy Graham & Max Lucado are also authors I enjoy reading. I do love to read. Sitting on my back porch with a good book is one of my favorite ways to spend a lazy day.

BOOKMARKS!! I love bookmarks! And I am always in need of new ones. I mark pages in almost every book I read - recipes in my cookbooks, a quote I want to go back and read, the thing in one of the self help books I need to remember... You get the point. I love books & bookmarks! I have also started collecting them. They are as awesome to collect as postcards! So many! I love them all! I would like any kind - history, animal, scenery from your country, cities or houses, quotes, pretty, cross, Bible verses, Christian, anything from my likes, cloth... If you could find me one of 'Three Little Pigs', I would be thrilled and love you forever!


I enjoy learning about where the postcards come from and the person who is sending them. I like my postcards naked. What is written on the back is as important to me as the picture on the front.

Postcards I like:


Did you know?




Legends of...


Holiday (especially Christmas and Halloween)

animals (especially foxes & owls, but I do love them all!)

I like postcards of cemeteries, mushrooms, old barns, churches, animals, any type of tourist postcard, anything twins, books, reading, scarecrows, pumpkins, old ships, NASCAR... If there are any Richard Petty postcards out there I would love to have some! Any type of history postcard, especially, postcards about Salem, Massachusetts & the witch trials, Roanoke & The Lost Colony, the Oregon Trail, the Donner Party...

Postcards I need for the twins (blank & in an envie):

Pigs, Military, especially WW2 ,Fishing, Russia,Birds

Bears, especially black bears, Black & white, Rainbows

Positive quotes or Bible verses

I would love to have handmade "Three Little Pig" postcards. I know there are some very creative people out there and I would love to see what you would make with my favorite childhood story book. You can send these naked or in an envie. It would make me very happy! :)

Favorite Crafts

My favorite craft would be making my scrap books. I love the pictures, the stickers, the writing. I just love everything about putting my memories on paper. I enjoy cross stitch & I want to learn to crochet. I make jewelry.

I have started doing more paper crafts. I am learning and really enjoying doing them. I would love to receive anything I could use with paper crafts.

I have not made any ATC's, but have received some very cool ones. I may give it a try someday.

Do Not Send

Please do not send any scented item. I have asthma. I do not wish to receive any candles, body or bath products... Nothing scented or smelling of smoke, Please. Also, I am allergic to the majority of bath products and lotions. I break out in an itchy rash. The product would have to be all natural. No chemicals or fragrance. I would happily like anything completely natural with essential oils. :)

Please do not send food. I am very picky about what I eat. The only exception to this is Maynards Fuzzy Peach candy from Canada. We love this candy! We would love to try the berry and the sour cherry.

Foods & Stuff

I do not wish to receive any food items unless I join a food related swap.

I enjoy healthy organic food. I love to grow vegetables, fruits & herbs and I do love to cook. I enjoy trying new recipes.

I love dark chocolate. It's my favorite. I do NOT like banana flavored candy, white chocolate, or candy with peanuts.

TEA - I love tea. I enjoy herbal teas, fruity and green teas. I do not like black tea. Please do not send loose tea. I would like to receive prepackaged only. I am as interested in the wrappers than as I am the tea. I would like tea with wrappers from your country or interesting wrappers. If you send a black tea, I will not rate you down, as I stated before interesting wrappers are what I want. I received one with an old ship that was awesome. I would love to have another of it. Any wrappers that are cute, girly, in a different language, seasonal - anything! I will love it all and the tea too! :)

I use cloth napkins so I love getting those! And they don't have to match. Hand made ones are awesome, since you can make some with patterns you can't buy.

RECIPES ~ If you are sending recipes to me, I prefer healthy vegan recipes. I am not opposed to recipes with meat.

...for my pink gifts that you sent me for Christmas and all my advent gifts too! I have been enjoying all the wonderful items you sent! The bookmark that say's Don't Forget is a great idea! So many times I have read a book and wanted to remember things I read, but was too lazy to go write it down. Haha Where did you find it? Anyways... Thanks again and I hope you're doing well!

If you haven't checked out this show you really should! It's clean, lighthearted and it's on amazon prime. As I started watching this the other day it made me think of you, since we had been talking about TV shows. :)

Thank you for the 21 Day Devotional on Easter. I will read it. It looks like very interesting reading.
