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.


Comment: Hello Kristin! The rainy season in our country is starting out a bit, and I hate it because rains in the Philippines is too much. Anyways, thank you for sending a Japanese-theme postcard. Regards!
Comment: Thanks for the nice selection of stamps!

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! :-)
