About Me

I'm a 24 year old female Floridian...transplanted to Ohio.

I have had several long term pen pals since I was 12. I collect post cards and love writing letters in my spare time.

I live in Ohio but have collected postcards from NY, MA, and CA and others along my travels. I studied in Auckland, NZ for a semester and would LOVE NZ cultural items/postcards.

I would love to swap postcards and letters. I'm trying my bit at art...we'll see!

I love the color purple and Golden retrievers and PUGGLES (I have a puggle puppy at the moment. Her name is Bailey). I have fibromyalgia and benefit from anything soothing (teas, aroma therapy-lavender, lotions),

I was a gymnast for 17 years and a coach for 5 years. Now I work at a pharmaceutical company in the microbiology department.

twitter: aploenes Send me a message if you want to be friends on fb. My security options don't allow people to search for me.

I don't get home from work until after midnight and don't wake up until after the post has arrived. Please understand that the day I say I sent your item may not reflect the exact date it is post marked.

Favorite Music

I'm a big fan of popular country music. Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Keith urban, Kenny Chesney, Sugarland, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, etc...

Also like acoustic/a capella music

I tend to like music with lyrics that go along with whatever is going on in my life.

Favorite Television

Criminal Minds, CSI, NCIS, Big Bang Theory, Revenge, Whitney, New Girl, Modern Family, House, Castle

Please...

Postcards: Send with a note, stamped, mailed. I prefer postcards with places, please don't send ones with random decorations, advertisements, cartoon characters, etc. However, if this is all you have I completely understand :)

Art supplies: Scraps are fine by me! If you wish to unload scraps to me (despite swaps requiring new) that is great! I don't do full sized art pieces and try to not do the same thing twice so small is good :)

How to get hearts...

Anything with a sweet note :) I love getting mail at all, so it shouldn't be hard to get hearts. I'd rather give a heart for something thought out and late than for something thrown together and on time (I just like getting mail....I don't specifically look to make sure its on time) I'll rate you once I get it :)

I studied in Auckland, NZ for a semester and would LOVE NZ cultural items/postcards. I want more than anything to go back there and live. (Maybe once I make some more money!)

I also LOVE purple. I welcome anything and everything purple. Blues and greens and browns are pretty too.

Fibromyalgia Awareness is close to my heart. As May 12th comes around, most of my non-themed swaps will probably have something to do with National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. This is just to spread the word, not to advertise.

Having been a gymnast for so long, I welcome anything gymnastics related. Seeing as this is an olympic year, I'd be VERY VERY excited to receive something from London dealing with the olympics (gymnastics especially!)

Comment: Thank you very much! I really liked everything you sent. The lovely notecards arrived just in time for Valentines day. :) My daughter, the little artist, wanted to have some of the pencils, so they are already in good use. :)
Response: Glad she enjoyed it too!
