About Me

Hello everyone! I enjoy sending and receiving happy snail mail. I live in North Carolina and am a Wisconsin transplant. I have no human babies, just one elderly fur-baby - Mr. Carter the Cat.

I mainly like to do postcard, notecard, journal and letter swaps; so please do not feel it is necessary to send any extras items to earn a heart. I already have way, way too much in my inventory!

Favorite Books

I enjoy most books, historical fiction, travel memoirs, and biographies. I will read just about anything, there have been maybe two or three books I started but did not finish because I did not like them. I am making my way through the the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris, in between reading books for book club.

Favorite Crafts

I started making cards earlier this year; so I'm not very good at it yet (ha ha!), but I am improving; and have discovered that I do not have as much time for it as I thought I would.

Hobbies

Postcrossing is my version of armchair traveling! I love to travel, and Postcrossing helps with the travel bug. I am currently in the initial stages of planning my next trip which will be either Morocco or walking the Camino de Santiago - I'm undecided right now. So any recommendations or suggestions would be appreciated.

Walking / hiking and generally being outdoors, but there is nothing about camping that I enjoy - it's too much work to be enjoyable.

Favorite Television

I'm not much of a TV or movie watcher, but I will make an effort to watch the Green Bay Packers if they are ever shown on our local station - which is rare!

Likes

I love all things stationery (paper, notecards, journals, stickers, washi tape & pens);

All things pineapple;

I have become obsessed with the 'hello' motif;

I'm a Francophile so that includes anything French related (Eiffel Tower, macaroons, lavender, berets, etc.);

Butterflies;

Animals: Cats, Hedgehogs, Llamas, Otters, Owls, and Giraffes (adult appropriate ones are a challenge to find); and

Vespa / scooter - I have always wanted one, hopefully someday I'll own one.

Dislikes

Glitter - it usually ends up all over the house and my face!

Hello Kitty - yes, I'm a cat person, but I simply do not appreciate Hello Kitty items.

Disney

Teas

I have recently discovered that I Iike earl grey and mint teas. But I like trying different flavors too. I am currently trying apple cider and a pumpkin spice black tea.

Comment: Sounds like it was a productive weekend. I like the idea of saving money on my hair, but I'm too impatient to do a beauty school. But I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Comment: Hello Candace, please let Carter know that we are passing along his letter and request to Santa, and are hoping for the best - Santa says it's good you started early this year, as not everything is readily available at Santa's headquarters ... what a lucky kitty Carter is to have his own personal stationery AND personal secretary, too!

Thank you so much for the amazing package! I especially can't wait to use all of that lace! You were very generous especially with the postage! I really appreciate this group and it was fun to host so many swap. Best Wishes Rebecca

Thank you for the lovely reply to my letter! I would just write back, but I can't promise I would remember to, I'm horrible at that. That's why I like swap-bot, a visual reminder of what I need to send :) I've been down to Charlotte a few times, usually to go to the airport, and my parents live about an hour and a half north east of Vegas! Not in Nevada though. The reply was very sweet.
