About Me

Hi, I'm 31 years old, married and my kids have fur... for now. I love the outdoors, camping, backpacking, hiking, off-roading, four wheeling etc. I also love to cook, read, write, craft, sew and I'm really into fun runs, 5ks and triathlons. I enjoy gnoming people. I have 2 cats and 1 dog but someday would like a zoo of animals... any tips convincing my husband of that would be appreciated :P I love writing/receiving letters and sending/receiving packages etc. I have a pretty twisted sense of humor and am not easily offended so any of those postcards that you can't send to grandma I will gladly accept lol. I recently discovered ATCS and am excited to start creating and sharing my art. I also recently discovered just how much I LOVE postage stamps. Use as many as you can on whatever you send me 😊

Things I like

Glitter, Sparkly things, Space Cats, Memes, Shiny things, rhinestones, Mermaids, Unicorns, Princesses, Pokemon GO, Legos, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Feathers, Lace, Barbie, Meditation, Vintage stuff, Antique stuff, Trucks, Semi Trucks, Quads

Things I collect

Magnets from places I've been and fun magnets that are not location specific, Little animals/people/monsters from quarter machines, Pressed pennies. I just recently found a love for collecting postal stamps and postcards.

Books I Like

I mostly read young adult books but I enjoy all types. I love fairy tale retellings.

The Lunar Chronicles, Heartless, Caraval, Harry Potter, 50 Shades of Grey The Celestine Prophecy, Where The Red Fern Grows

My goal this year is to read 52 books in 52 weeks

Things I don't care for

Seeing my name spelled wrong, empty tea wrappers, toothpicks, A+/Way to go! type stickers, baby/mother stuff, felt, Disney, I'm not really sure what to do with knick knacks especially if they don't serve an obvious purpose.

That said... I've received things that fell into a dislike category that I have absolutely loved! So, if you think it's something I'll like by all means send it :)


I rarely drink tea and never drink coffee so please only send these if it's somehow special, unique or from a foreign country. I usually only drink water


I like all types of postcards. I like them sent naked and written on or if the swap calls for them in an envelope I like them that way too but I don't really care for them written on and sent in an envelope and I don't care for touristy postcards sent in an envelope but I LOVE them sent naked!


Please do not send food or candy. I have started to cut out processed foods and sugar again. But if you must, or a swap calls for it please no chocolate, sour candy, apple, coffee or honey flavored anything, flavored drink packets or food that's not factory sealed.


Response: Thank you for rating me

Dessie0416 rated for ATC Bag #39 - USA on Jun 16, 2017
Comment: I love the extra step of putting actual stamps on the packaging(sometimes that is hard to do, especially when there are long lines at the PO, the machine is always easier and no line lol). More to add to my collection. The ATC's are also really nice mix.
Response: I love using stamps on everything! Took me a bit to learn the ropes of the postage requirements but I wouldn't do it any other way now :) Glad you like the ATC's and thank you for the heart :)

Comment: Heh heh, I like the 2 words you provided for me! Thank you!
Response: Glad you liked it :) Thank you for rating me.
Comment: THESE ARE THE BEST LETTERSETS EVER EVER EVERRRR Thanks so much Kristin! I will be using them up within the week. If I can stop licking them. Oh, who am I kidding. I'm a hoarder, I'll probably stare at them for two years before I get up the nerve to actually write on them. Either way, thanks so much!
Response: OH MY GOD I can totally relate to needing to get up the nerve to write on or use nice things LOL! I'm glad you like everything. Thank you for the nice note and heart :)
Comment: Thanks so much for a wonderful envelope. I adore the hedgehog items and can't wait to use them. You put a big smile on my face today. Happy Swapping!
Response: I'm glad you like what I sent :) So happy I could put a smile on your face :) Thank you for the kind words and the lovely rating :)
Comment: Thank you. I would enjoy hearing more about your retreat. Mexican card was torn, completely missing, on bottom of right side of picture side, large area missing. Not good for a vintage card collector.,
Response: The retreat was nice. We did some hiking, played some fun games, socialized and ate way too much food! It was really nice to get away for a long weekend and have some girl time :) I'm sorry the card arrived damaged. I don't recall it having any issues before I sent it. I sent you a message asking if you'd like me to resend. Thank you for rating me.

I received your RAK PC yesterday; a cool, old school train PC, to be exact, and my eldest and I very much liked looking it over together. :D Thank you so much for sending it! I have nothing like it and will be keeping it on my mail display shelf. :) Thank you again for the sweet RAK!

Hello, fellow Coug! :-)

I last did the drive through the Gorge sometime this spring, 20 years ago. :-)

I haven't been back to Pullman since before my official graduation after the fall of 1997. (I finished my [second] degree in the Czech Republic and, from there, soon wound up in Seattle, where I lived for the next 15 years.)

But I remain a Cougar. Go Cougs! :-)
